Today I’m looking at a range of TPD compliant disposable e-cigs from Shenzhen based Elf Bar. They’re imported into the UK by KOV distribution based in Manchester.
Elf Bar believe there are more healthy ways to vape. In fact the word Elf is their keyword and represents healthier and better. Healthier in the harm free materials used during manufacture and better in terms of a natural, purer taste.
They’ve been keeping themselves very busy over the last three years manufacturing not only disposables but pod systems and pod kits as well. Still, the emphasis has been firmly placed on disposable vapes. Right now there are at least twenty four different disposable pod kits available through their website.
For a more economical vape be sure to check out our Elf Bar FB100 review or even the Elf Bar ELFA.
I think that’s what you call “Dedication” and Roy Castle would be proud!
The devices are super simple to use, basically inhale on the mouthpiece and the Auto Draw system will trigger the fire activation – easy peasy!
Let’s take a look at three devices Elf Bar produce right now.
This looks to be a more recent addition to the range. A 350, 800 and 1500 version have already been released. With a maximum e-liquid capacity of 4.8ml don’t expect the Elf Bar 1500 to be hitting vape shelves in the UK anytime soon.
The new Elf Bar 600 falls in line with TPD regulations with a 2ml capacity. It’s slim with a diameter of just 16mm and a height of 104mm. The internal battery capacity is 550mAh and – you guessed it, said to last anything up to 600 puffs.
Elf Bar state you’ll run dry of liquid before the battery fails.
I managed to find 27 flavours to pick from and these include fruit, beverage and mint. All of which look to be available in 20mg Nic Salt only.
It also doesn’t state what the liquid ratio is so I’m going to assume 50VG/50PG.
It doesn’t take long to figure out what the “T” prefix stands for with these disposable pods. Elf Bar are striving for that natural, pure taste with the inclusion of two MTL cigarette filter style drip tips with each pod.
So the new vaper is going to feel very much at home with these.
I’m reviewing the TPD (2ml) version. It has a diameter of just 14mm with a height of 95mm. The nicotine strength appears to be fixed again at 20mg nicotine salt and the maximum battery capacity is 500mAh.
A non EU version is also available. The Elf Bar T800 holds 3ml e-liquid with nic salt strengths of either 20mg or 50mg. Since the battery capacity remains at 500mAh it’s difficult to know if the battery will fail before the juice runs dry.
The Elf Bar T600 comes in twelve popular flavours including Mango, Strawberry Kiwi and Blue Razz Lemonade.
Expect to vape anything up to 600 times with the T600 disposable.
There’s another change of design with the Elf Bar CR500. The external spherical packaging is a bit of a giveaway, really.
They look like mini milk bottles, for want of a better description. They even have a glossy finish that goes some way with replicating glass, I guess.
..Glassy. But Classy! lol. Maybe CR stands for Classy Release? Maybe I’m clutching at straws when I should be clutching these vapes!
The Elf Bar CR500 is limited to a TPD version holding the mandatory 2ml of 20mg nic salt e-liquid. The battery capacity is 400mAh and said to last anything up to 500 puffs.
It measures 95mm in height with a diameter of 18.7mm.
Expect a range of twelve different flavour profiles including Sour Apple, Banana Milk and Watermelon Lemon. Some are exclusive to the CR500.
