Comparing Vape Liquids in Podsy: Nicotine Salts vs. Shortfills

Gone are the days when you got yourself a simple vape kit and filled it up with the one vape liquid you liked the taste of. As of right now, there are about a dozen different types of e-juices, all with different chemical compositions and fit for different types of vape coils. Knowing which kind is the best fit for your kit to atomize is key to having a truly fulfilling experience.

What is E-Liquid?

E-liquid (also called e-juice or vape juice) is a solution used to fill vaping devices and electronic cigarettes. 

What all of them share is that they consist of a mixture of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and different flavorings. Once the kit heats them, a (flavored) vapor is produced for the user to inhale. 

What makes them differ (aside from the range of flavors they come in) is the PG/VG balance and nicotine levels. Such a range makes vaping a highly customizable experience that users can tailor to their preferences.

As of right now, the Podsy catalog hosts the two most common types: nic salts and shortfills.

What Type of E-Liquid is Nicotine Salt?

Nicotine salt (sometimes called nic salt, for short) is a type of e-juice with typically higher propylene glycol (PG) to vegetable glycerin (VG) ratio. High PG content helps to reduce the harshness associated with traditional freebase nicotine e-liquids. 

Nic salts are largely used for MTL (mouth-to-lung vaping style) and are aimed at people looking for a smoother vaping experience. They’re available in a range of strengths from 5mg to 20mg –  ideal for smokers transitioning to vaping or those who sometimes miss the intense smoking experience.

What Type of E-Liquid is Shortfill?

Shortfill, on the flip side, is a high VG e-juice that aims for a stronger throat hit, with a thicker consistency going for high-vapor output. Most commonly shortfils come at a 70VG/30PG ratio, though it’s not uncommon to see a 50VG/50PG ratio, and some manufacturers even offer a pure 100VG option. On their own, shortfills don’t contain any nicotine, however, the bottle typically has an extra space to add a nic shot (the nic strength can range from 3mg to 6mg). 

Shortfills should be used with sub-ohm kits that can handle the thick, high-VG, consistency, and are typically used for DTL (direct-to-lung style). That said, it’s not that uncommon for lower-VG (50VG/50PG) options to be used for MTL style.

It’s a great option for vapers looking to have a higher ability to customize their experience.
