Are Elf Bar disposable vapes legal in the UK?

Most disposables are currently legal in the UK. This does, however, depend on the liquid capacity of the device and also the strength of the nicotine.

Elf Bars and other similar disposables are perfectly legal to purchase in the UK providing you’re 18 or older and the product is within the specification set by the TRPR.

There are disposable vapes designed for the UK market that meet the requirements of the TRPR, they contain no more than 2ml of e-liquid and come in nicotine strengths up to a maximum of 20mg.

Products that boast higher strengths or contain more e-liquid such as the Elf Bar 1500 and Elux 3500, may in fact be counterfeit or have been intended for the international market and illegal to sell. 

It is recommended you only purchase vape products from a well-established vape store such as Tablites. If you have any concerns about Elf Bar disposables, please contact us for more information. 

How do you dispose of Elf Bars?

Due to the battery inside the Elf Bar, these cannot be disposed of with your normal household waste. 

If you’re wondering how to dispose of Elf Bar vapes, Tablites can help. Batteries must be taken to a battery recycling point which can be found in supermarkets, recycling centres and of course your local TABlites store.

If you have any further questions regarding disposable vapes or any other product please get in touch with our customer service team.

How long does an Elf Bar last?

The lifespan of the Elf Bar 600 is based on the battery capacity. The 550mAh Elf Bar battery type should last the average vaper up to 600 puffs. Puff counts are an estimation and are dependent on the length of draws taken. The approximate puff count can be reduced if longer and deeper draws are taken.

Are Elf Bars safe to use?

Yes. Elf Bars are safe to use. The E-liquid has been tested and submitted under the TRPR here in the UK. All the ingredients and components of the device are the same as those you would find in other vaping products available from reputable vape stores.

As you are buying a genuine product you are buying a safe product. Remember as with all electronic cigarette vape products, Elf Bars are only ever intended for adult users who are trying to quit or continue to quit smoking.

What e-liquid is used in Elf Bar vapes?

Elf Bars each contain 2ml of nicotine salt e-liquid. Nic salt e-liquid delivers a much smoother throat hit when vaped compared to freebase nicotine, this can make vaping nic salts much more satisfying to those looking to switch to vaping. It satisfies cravings quickly as it is absorbed by the body faster than freebase nicotine found in some other e-liquids.

When it comes to Elf Bar flavours there are plenty of options available to you. These include:

  • Apple Peach
  • Banana Ice
  • Blue Razz Lemonade
  • Energy Ice
  • Blueberry Sour Raspberry
  • Pineapple Peach Mango
  • Cotton Candy Ice
  • Pink Lemonade
  • Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Mango Milk Ice and many more

Tablites also offer ranges of e-liquid that match the Elf Bar and other disposable vapes for use in keep vapes (reusable devices). Bar juice 5000 is an excellent range for people looking to swap disposable vapes for a standard vape kit. For advice on disposable vape kits, read our blog or contact us!

How do I set up an Elf Bar?

Disposable vapes do not require any filling with e-liquid, no changing coils and no charging. If you’re wondering how to start an Elf Bar, simply remove it from the packaging, take off the rubber covers from the vape and inhale like you would a traditional cigarette.

Disposable vapes use a self-activating switch so there are no buttons to press or settings to change.

How many puffs are in an Elf Bar?

The Elf Bar 600 features a 550mAh battery and holds 2ml of e-liquid. Simply inhale to vape, then dispose of it when it’s finished. The Elf Bar should last for approximately 500-600 puffs.

How do I know when my Elf Bar is empty?

You will know it is time to replace your Elf Bar with a new one when the flavour starts to deteriorate and less and less vapour is being produced with each inhale.

The Elf Bar features a LED light that will flash to alert the user that the device has run out of e-liquid and it is time to replace it with a new unit.

As with all vape products, there is no hard and fast rule as to how long something will last you. Whilst they do say 600 puffs capacity each user's puff will be different from another user.

Can I refill an Elf Bar?

Surprisingly, this is a common Elf Bar FAQ for new vapers. Disposable vapes aren't made to be refilled. They are sealed units and are only meant to last a finite amount of time.

Internally, the batteries are missing the required circuitry to safely recharge them and the design of the e-liquid containing capsule is not designed to be opened and sealed multiple times.

If you’re looking for something more permanent, we have a range of vape kits in loads of different styles most of which are refillable and rechargeable.

Which is better: an Elf Bar or a Geek Bar?

When it comes to disposables two of the biggest brands are Geek Bar and Elf Bar.

Both have taken the vape world by storm and have enjoyed being in the spotlight all over social media.

Offering very similar devices the e-liquid capacity and battery life are almost identical.

The Geek Bar advertises 575 puffs vs Elf bars 600.

Which is the best Elf Bar flavour?

With over 50 different Elf Bars stocked by Tablites, it can be hard to decide which to try first.

Maybe start with one of the most popular flavours such as Blue Razz Lemonade which is consistently one of our best sellers. You could try something with a bit of a twist such as the Mango Peach Watermelon flavoured Elf Bar T600.

From single fruit flavours to wild mixes there is something for everyone within the Elf Bar ranges. Whichever flavour you choose they are available in a fantastic multi-buy with other disposable vapes to help save you money.

If you are a fan of the Elf Bar aesthetic but want something a little more prominent the FB1000 Pod Kit by Elf bar is a fantastic starter kit at a low price. Paired with a vape juice like Bar Juice 5000 this could be the perfect setup for you. Bar Juice is essentially Elf Bar Vape Juice but suitable for use in refillable vape kits. 

How much do Elf Bars cost?

For £5.99 for a single unit or as a multibuy 2 for £10 or 5 for £20 the Elf Bar as with other disposables doesn't offer the best bang for your buck in the vape world.

Selecting a refillable vape device and using e-liquid will save you a significant amount of money even in the short term. With starter vape kits being priced from as little as £11.99 such as the SMOK Solus or Eleaf IORE these cost a little more than 2 disposables and will last you a lot longer and offer a better vape experience.

Elf Bar has recently brought out the Elf Bar Elfa prefilled pod kit. At only £7.99 for the starter kit which includes 1 prefilled pod in Blue Razz Lemonade Flavour this is definitely the cheapest way to swap from disposables.

Extra pods are only £5.99 for a pack of 2 pods with each pod being the equivalent of 1 disposable Elf Bar.

Kits such as these allow the user to select from a wider range of e-liquid flavours and strengths.
