Don't think they have that one here in Navan, we have Dealz, Euro Saver and Choice, will check those tomorrow. There's a Hale Vape stand in the shop centre too, will see how much they're charging per nic shot.

ESI sell nic shots for €1.50 each they also do 9mg shots and they also do them in PG and VG.

I'm down to 1mg ish so I find them dead handy.

Yeah they seem to be the better of the online crew for shots, though you have to add p&p so only worth if you're buying other items at the time. I have been thinking on a drop to maybe 1.5-2mg, see how it goes, I guess no better time than the present. I need to get myself a new mod also, 510 is starting to come away on my Evdilo :/

Found nic shots in town, Euro saver have 5 packs for 7.50, Dealz have 4 packs for €5 which works out a little better. They seem to have plenty in stock, just bought a couple packs, will be back for more ....

Maybe it’s coming from the north so will be ok? There is no action on the tracking number yet.
Package arrived. No customs, An Post just dropped it off. All good, it did take a week though.

Ordered about €50 worth of e-liquid from novavapes last Thursday. It arrived this morning, no customs fee required. Happy with that as I was fully expecting to have to pay €20-€30 more

It seems to be a bit of a gamble as I just got hit with a 25 euro charge from an order from darkstar. Had no issues from a previous order last month.

I wonder is it because the novavapes deliveries don't come in a traditional package, they use a flat cardboard box which fits through letterboxes. The juice bottles are a flat rectangular design to accommodate this.

As I said in the OP, I got hit on an order from DS, I contacted them and they said they're looking into alternative courier service for this end. They clearly haven't done so yet, I'm avoiding ordering from them for now, sadly, as I've been ordering from them for about 6-7 years, right back to when we could buy large bottles of 72mg nic without any hassles, good times

It's UPS that are adding on the charges, the other companies must use others? The driver himself told me everyone he's delivering to is going nuts over the add on charges on anything from the UK

Well Darkstar do make very distinctive packages, with their custom tape lettering. Though like I said before I had ordered from there before post-brexit without issues. The only difference this time was that I also ordered a 1 liter bottle of base mix this time so perhaps the extra weight got it attention. Last time it went through fine I had just ordered 20 10ml bottles of nicotine shots, which come in a nice small box so it woulda been a smaller package.

Come to think of it though, I think perhaps it's that €22 threshhold for duties that I musta tipped over this time.

Yeah I'm a long time customer of theirs too, sucks to think of alternatives now. I'm going to shoot them an email as well and see if it comes to anything.

One thing I have noticed today is a lot of the Irish and N.Irish vape sites are all out of stock on 70/30 base mix. So seems to me like UK vendors are possibly losing some business from all this.

Yeah darkstar are using UPS as well, got the same charges.

They are definitely losing business, they replied to me about 2 weeks back that they were looking into it, must be still looking ...

I'm due to make an order very soon, maybe even this week, I think I'll give nomnomz uk a try, they run out of NI. Someone has recommended them in here

I got my flavour concentrate in from the UK this week from a private seller but he still marked it as food flavourings

I think that will use up the last of my base mix so I'm going to try nomnomz too .

They have a more extensive range than DS, providing they have the goods in stock. It's the first place I've found that has all the ingredients for my favorite mix, which saves a bit on p&p from various sites like I've always had to
