DarkStar Products Explained

DarkStar Products Explained

If you are just starting out on your journey into vaping, it can be a confusing transition. At DarkStar, we offer a wide range of e liquid products. We’ve put together this short blog to explain how some of our core products should be used.


Bottle Shots

 Perhaps our most popular product, Bottle Shots are the perfect way to make 250ml of e-liquid and not break the bank in the process. It’s important to remember when you buy your DarkStar Bottle Shot, this is not a ready to vape product and requires other ingredients to make it up to a completed liquid, ready to use. A Bottle Shot will come filled to 20-25% with a mix of flavour concentrates, which you can then top up with a mix of Vegetable Glycerine, Propylene Glycol and nicotine. If it is your first time using Bottle Shots, you might want to check out our starter packs & bundles page. Here you will find bundles of our best selling flavours that give you everything you need to create 250ml e-liquid from just £10.95!


One Shots

 Similar to Bottle Shots, One Shots are not a ready to vape product. They are made up of specially formulated flavour concentrates designed to be the base flavour for a delicious and complete e-liquid recipe. These can be purchased in a variety of sizes, depending on how much final e-liquid you would like to create. Our one shots are designed to make up 15-25% of the final product. Simply add Vegetable Glycerine, Propylene Glycol and nicotine to make up to 100%.


Vegetable Glycerine, Propylene Glycol & Base Mix

 Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol or ‘VG’ and ‘PG’ make up the base and bulk of every e-liquid. These can come in a variety of ratios to suit your needs. See our more in depth blog on VG, PG and which ratios are best for what devices etc. here. If you don’t have time to mix your own PG & VG together, you can buy our ready mixed ‘Base Mix’ which comes in a variety of the most popular mix ratios.


Nicotine Shots

 Nicotine Shots are exactly what you would think they are. Simply add your desired amount of nicotine to your product to create the final strength you would like for the finished product. These can be easily added to Bottle Shots and Short Fills. See your DarkStar product label for instructions. Nicotine Shots also come in a variety of PG & VG ratios dependent on your preference. If normal freebase Nicotine Shots just aren’t giving you the nicotine hit you are looking for, or they are causing your e-liquid to be harsh, you might want to look into Nicotine Salts (also available on the DarkStar website). Find out more about Nic Salts here.


Short Fills

Short Fills are ready mixed e-liquids. They contain a mixture of flavour concentrates, PG and VG. Nicotine is optional but the reason they are called Short Fills is because they come just short of full, leaving room for you to fill up with your desired amount of nicotine.
Just add your nicotine, shake and vape! Your Short Fill will be ready to vape, but we always recommend leaving it 24 hours for the nicotine to settle.


We hope this short blog helps you understand our range of products a little better and you can navigate the DarkStar website with confidence. To find out more about our products and how to use them, check out the rest of our blog.
