Is our only option now nic shots? :/ PITA
Seems that way, but you can't make 18mg juice from nic shots for mtl. Your right, it's a PITA. My folks are in Scotland, but don't know when I'll get over there again with the virus so rampant. But when I do I'll be sure to get a few litres of nic to bring back!

I ordered from a site that seemed to be Irish but they have sent me a Royal Mail tracking number, hope I don’t get hit, and if I do I might decline the package, don’t fancy paying double for a 30 quid pod mod.
Maybe it’s coming from the north so will be ok? There is no action on the tracking number yet.

^^^ What was the site? Did you pay in Euro's or Sterling?

If the site is VAT registered here, you may have already paid Irish VAT even with shipping from UK?

Site is called IAMWIZZARD. There is an IE vat number on the site so hopefully that is the case.

Smartypants, it would be handy for others to know what sites to avoid in future?


Is your 'vinci' still working?

I’ll update once it arrives if there was a customs charge or not.

I gave up on the vinci after a few weeks, constantly leaking and gurgling. I am using a Vaporesso xross these days, no issues with that so far.

Fingers crossed for ya, as I got no indication of any charges until it was about to arrive - when I checked tracking it was originally due to arrive on Monday, next time I checked that had changed to Weds and the reason was customs check - I kinda knew then but heard no more - it actually arrived on the Tues and only for the driver ringing me in advance I woul dhave had zero clue that there was charges

ok, I'm out of nic, DIY'd for the last 7/8 years. It seems my only option is to buy nic shots. I'm trying to reach a high nic in my juice for mtl on a Caliburn G. Might be a stupid question but can I just add flavours to vg nic shots and vape it? With 10% flavour it would work out at about 16mg juice. Any issue here?

I ordered 500ml 72mg nic from nicotine hub in November. It should last me at least a year, just hoping by time I need to order again there will be some better trade process in place between Ireland and the UK. Is there any options in the EU for ordering nic I wonder?

The whole eu is covered by the tpd so only 18mg in 10ml bottles, as far as i know.

Can't see why not, it's just a PG/VG mix with nic to start, same as any juice minus the flavouring. Get a 100ml bottle, throw 9 of them in there and your 10% flavouring and it'll do for a while in pods

Sucks that we are reduced to this though, I'm not so bad as I mostly vape 3mg, so 2 shots sees me ok for 120ml juice, I think it's just over 4mg if I mix in a 100ml bottle. I do 6mg in pods, so I'll just make up 50ml of something and add 2 shots there too. Any sites doing bulk on the shots?

Thanks, I ordered from esi. I have some new 60ml bottles, I'll put 5 shots in then I have wiggle room if they need more flavour. This is going to get expensive. It really is a stupid regulation. And all those 10ml bottles going in the bin, crazy.

Anyone got any Irish sites that aren't over charging for nic shots? That's who should get the business, not the ones looking for €2.50 a pop! Talk about milking it!

It's a sad time for us old school mixers who prefer to do all our mixing from scratch with decent nic. It was always going to happen though, it was hard enough get it through in smaller amounts up till now, but now it's nic shots or nowt it would seem.

I've just ordered a couple short fills from ESI to try for now, see how they go. I like that they inc the shots in the price at least

Not online, but Dealz have Nic shots for €1.50.

But with them been supplied from 88Vape, with Brexit don't see that lasting long.

Check the store today, out of stock of shortfill I was looking for and other stocks on display seemed low.

Some stores where giving complimentary Nic Shots with shortfills.

I must check in the euro shops here, I know they do 0nic vapes but not sure if they still do nic shots, if they do I might just have to grab a bunch. On ESI you get 2 shots with each 120ml shortfill which are between 16.99 and 19.99, works out better than the Hale vape stands at least who are charging €17 for a 60ml and you pay extra for the top up shot. The juice on ESI will be superior quality too.

Damn I'm gonna miss whipping up 100ml bottles of my own juice regular for less than €5 all in.

VG is another issue, DS were selling a litre for £3.50, over here they want a tenner for 500ml
