Focus on: HotShot

Nicotine shots are the latest exciting innovation to take the vape world by storm – and for good reason. These clever little nicotine shots meet the new TPD requirements and make e-liquids even more customisable.

Today we’re taking a closer look at HotShot, telling you all about the brand and how you can incorporate this clever product into your vape routine.

What is a nicotine shot?

Nicotine shots are a fairly new innovation, and have quickly risen in popularity because they offer an alternative to the small volume limit imposed by the TPD changes.

The changes mean e-liquids containing nicotine can be sold in a maximum volume of 10ml. If you’re an occasional vaper or someone who loves to mix and match e-liquids all the time, this isn’t as much of an issue. But for hardcore vapers who stick to one or two flavours the TPD regulations amount to a huge pile of empties and a lot more hassle.

This is where nicotine shots come in. Nicotine-free e-liquids can be sold in higher volumes making it possible to buy in bulk.

For vapers who want nicotine in their e-liquids, shortfill bottles and nicotine shots help bridge that gap. If you use as 50ml short fill bottle and add a 10ml nicotine shot with an 18mg nicotine strength, once mixed you’ll end up with 60ml of your favourite e-liquid of a strength of 3mg.

Introducing HotShot

HotShot nicotine shots are made by UK-based and industry leading experts VapourLabs, who are also behind bestselling e-liquid brands like Pure Evil and Double Drip.

The company is committed to delivering the highest standard in e-liquid at a fair price, and it’s an ethos that extends to its HotShot nicotine shot, too.

HotShot comes in 18mg strength and contains flavourless, odourless nicotine so it doesn’t interfere with the quality of the base e-liquid you’re using.

How to use HotShot

If you’re interested in giving mixing your own e-liquids a go, this is the perfect place to start.

To do it you’ll need a HotShot nicotine shot and then any shortfill e-liquid bottle of your choice. Short fill bottles take all the hassle of out mixing – they’re nicotine-free e-liquids already and come in a bottle designed to hold the volume of a nicotine shot in addition to the e-liquid.

There’s a huge range of short fill e-liquids to choose from in some of our most popular flavours. Coffee lovers will love flavours like Tobacco Coffee, while anyone with a sweet tooth will delight in flavours like Ohm Baked’s Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream.

To mix, remove the lid of your short fill bottle then carefully add the HotShot to it. Shake thoroughly to make sure the nicotine blends well and mixes evenly.

That’s it – you’re ready to vape.
