Longfills Vape Juice Explained

In the world of vaping, the term 'longfills' might sound unfamiliar to some. Yet, it's a concept that's gaining traction among vaping enthusiasts and DIY vape juice mixers. Longfills offer a unique way to customise vape juice to individual preferences, providing a cost-effective alternative to pre-mixed vape juice.

This article aims to demystify the concept of longfills, exploring their benefits, how they work, and why they might be a preferred option for certain vapers.

Whether you're a novice vaper or an experienced one, or simply curious about different types of vape liquids, this guide is for you. Join us as we explore the world of longfills, a fascinating aspect of the vaping universe.

What Are Longfills?

Longfills are a type of vape juice used in vaping. Unlike pre-mixed vape juice, longfills come partially filled with concentrated flavour. The rest of the bottle is left empty, or 'long', hence the name 'longfills'.

This space is for vapers to add their own nicotine and/or VG/PG (Vegetable Glycerin/Propylene Glycol) mix. The process of adding these components is known as 'mixing'. Longfills offer a unique advantage; they allow vapers to customise their vape juice to their desired nicotine strength and flavour intensity.

Here's a simple breakdown of what a longfill bottle contains:

  • Concentrated flavour
  • Space for adding nicotine and/or VG/PG mix

Longfills cater to both novice and experienced vapers. They provide an opportunity to experiment with different flavour combinations and nicotine strengths. In essence, longfills are a DIY solution in the vaping world, offering a personalised vaping experience.

The Components of Longfills

A longfill bottle contains two main components:

  • Concentrated Flavour: This is the essence that gives the vape juice its taste.
  • Space for Adding Nicotine and/or VG/PG Mix: This allows the vaper to customise the strength and flavour of their vape juice.

Understanding these components is key to mastering the art of mixing longfills.

Mixing Your Own Longfills: A Step-by-Step Guide

Mixing your own longfills is a straightforward process:

  1. Decide on your desired nicotine strength.
  2. Add the appropriate amount of nicotine to the longfill bottle.
  3. Fill the rest of the bottle with a VG/PG mix.
  4. Shake the bottle well to mix the ingredients.
  5. Let the mix steep for a few days to enhance the flavour.

Remember, patience is key. The longer you let your mix steep, the better the flavour will be.

Benefits of Using Longfills

Key benefits Over Shortfills

  • Customisation of nicotine strength and flavour intensity.
  • Cost-effectiveness compared to pre-mixed e-juices.
  • Wide variety of flavours available.
  • Suitable for both novice and experienced vapers.

Customisation: Tailoring Your Vaping Experience with Longfills

Shortfills are specifically designed to create 3mg of vape juice once nicotine shots are added. The maximum strength achievable with almost all shortfills is 3mg.

Longfills, in contrast, feature a stronger concentrate, allowing you the user to personalise the strength of your vape juice. This offers significantly more flexibility than shortfills, enabling the creation of strengths beyond 3mg, such as 6mg, 10mg, 12mg, and even up to 16mg, using only nicotine shots.

Cost-Effectiveness and Environmental Impact

Longfills offer a more cost-effective solution compared to pre-mixed vape juice. When you opt for longfills, you're not only paying for concentrated flavour but also gaining the freedom to mix your own vape juice.

Cost Comparison:

  • A 60ml bottle of longfill costs as little as £8.99, including nic shots.
  • In contrast, purchasing six bottles of nic salts at our standard price of £2.99 each totals £17.94.

Long-Term Savings: This pricing structure can lead to significant savings over time, particularly for those who vape frequently.

Environmental Benefits: Longfills also contribute to reducing packaging waste. Using one longfill bottle instead of multiple pre-mixed bottles decreases plastic waste, aligning with more sustainable practices.

Safety and Legal Considerations

When dealing with longfills, safety is paramount. This is especially true when handling nicotine, which can be harmful in high concentrations. Always follow safety guidelines and use protective gear when mixing your own vape juice.

In terms of legal considerations, regulations surrounding longfills and nicotine content vary by region. It's important to stay informed about local laws to ensure you're vaping responsibly and legally.
