After the TPD (Tobacco Product Directive) came into force in May 2017, e liquid as we know it no longer existed. Gone were the days of larger bottles and all e liquids were only to be made available in 10ml bottles with the nicotine added to them.
Manufacturers came up with a way of offering larger bottles to their customers and giving them the ability to add their own nicotine (in the form of 18mg nicotine shots) to make various strengths of e liquids.
The term shortfill comes from the bottle being filled below capacity (or filled short). A 60ml bottle would generally be filled to 50ml, allowing one nicotine shots to be added giving a final strength of 3mg. An additional nicotine shot could be added which would dilute the flavour slightly, but give a final strength of 6mg.
Shortfill bottles generally have a higher VG content, meaning they are best used in Sub Ohm vape devices. Mouth to lung shortfills have started to become popular on the market and contain a higher PG ratio making them more suitable for Pod vape devices and can be sometimes called longfills as they offer more space for nicotine shots to allow a higher final nicotine content.
