It seems like the whole world is obsessed with disposable vapes at the moment and it’s no surprise: these little pocket-friendly pods are certainly the most convenient way to vape!
From Geek Bars to Pod Salt Go and Riot Squad disposables, we sell a wide range of different disposable vapes at Legion of Vapers. And two of the most hyped brands in our collection are, of course, Elf Bars and Elux Disposables. Both offering a superior vaping experience from a tiny single-use vape, these are two of our favourite pre-filled disposable pods on the market right now.
But, which is better: Elf Bar or Elux? In our desire to crown a king of disposables, we’ve decided to put these two brands head to head. From flavour range, appearance, and stats, to the awards each brand has won, this blog post will compare every aspect of the two disposable vape brands.
So, without further ado, let’s find out which disposable comes out on top!
Nic salt flavour range
One of the first things to consider when comparing Elux and Elf Bars is the range of e-liquid flavours they provide. Both brands offer 2ml of delicious nic salt in their portable pods with a nicotine strength of 2% (20mg of nicotine).
With the Elux disposable vapes, you can enjoy e-liquid flavours that can’t be found anywhere else. From the sweet and creamy strawberry banana milkshake of Unicorn Shake to the tangy energy drink flavour of Tiger Blood, and the refreshing berry blast of Mr Blue, these are some must-try nic salt flavours in the Elux Bar 600 range.
Moreover, the Elux Slush Puff range has impressed us with their immense list of slush inspired nic salts. We don’t think we’ve ever seen such a large selection of nic salt disposable vapes on a singular theme like this. Ranging from Cola Slush and Blue Razz Slush to refreshing Minty Slush and Lush Slush, these disposable nic salt flavours are essential for anyone who enjoys a beverage inspired vape.
And, with an even wider range of flavours available from the Legend Mini series, there truly is an Elux nic salt flavour for everyone. Lemon Ribeena, Fuji Melon, Gummy Bears, Peach Mango… you name it, they’ve got it in a pre-filled pod!
So what about Elf Bar’s nic salt range? The e-liquids from Elf Bar also impress with their immense selection. The Lux range brings fruity medleys to the fore with mixes like Strawberry Banana and Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava, while the Elf Bar 600 series combines fruit with some dessert and beverage inspired e-liquid flavours.
In the new Elf Bar Gee 600 range, Elf Bar certainly gets additional points for creativity. In addition to some classic flavours like Watermelon Ice and Blue Razz Lemonade, they’ve concocted some brand new nic salts that are making our mouths water. Cola Rum promises a rich and fizzy e-liquid flavour, while Orange Cinnamon Tea is a truly unique beverage-inspired blend. Moreover, Rose Lemonade and Mojito provide new refreshing and delectable e-liquid flavours for the range.
And, finally, we can’t mention the innovative flavours in this disposable vape series from Elf Bar without acknowledging one of the bravest nic salt flavours we’ve ever stocked at Legion of Vapers: Double Cheese. Without a doubt, this unusual flavour deserves to be tried at least once!
So who wins our vote for the best selection of nic salt flavours? Honestly – it’s hard to say. Both brands have an impressive array of disposables with thrilling nic salt flavours so any vaper will be sure to find something they like. Overall, we’d say that Elux has a slight edge over Elf Bar in terms of nic salt flavours – their range of e-liquids include all our favourite fruity, beverage, and sweet flavours with some formulations you can’t find anywhere else!
The next thing to consider is the appearance of the vapes. In the past, the original cig-a-likes were designed to be discreet, mimicking the simplistic appearance of a traditional cigarette. Safe to say, the vaping industry has now abandoned all effort to disguise a disposable and brands like Elux and Elf Bar are creating gorgeous, stylish e-cigs that are a joy to look at.
So, which brand wins in terms of appearance? Let’s take a closer look at the different vape kits they offer.
Elux have opted for a very traditional vape pod design with the Elf Bar 600, Pro 600, Legend Mini, and Slush Puff editions. Small, blocky, and colourful, these have the typical disposable bar silhouettes but are made more interesting by attractive colour gradients.
Elf Bar have adopted a similar silhouette with the Elf Bar 600 and the Elf Bar Lux, with unique illustrative art adding a creative aesthetic to the Lux vapes.
It gets more interesting with their other offerings. Elf Bar impresses with the Lost Mary pods, which feature a minimalist and attractive design. With their distinctive gradient colours, these are pods that will stand out anywhere!
Moreover, when it comes to appearance material quality, we’re big fans of the new Elf Bar Gee 600 disposable vapes because of their shiny stainless steel builds. Durable and stylish, we hope future Elf Bar vapes continue with this aesthetic! They also feature a distinctive MTL style drip tip, that makes them stand out against other pod style disposables on the market.
Elux have also been more creative with their Elux Flow 600 pods that employ a textured body to bring a stylish and ergonomic aspect to the traditional disposable vape kit.
Overall, we think the clear winners here are the Elf Bars – if you want a seriously good looking vape we’d recommend the Lost Mary or the Bar Gee 600!
When it comes to awards, Elf Bar is the obvious winner.
Last year, Elf Bar won the ‘Best Disposable Vape’ award in the UK ECIG STORE Awards. As the judges wrote, ‘Elf Bar disposables is a clear winner for us as they give you everything you need in a disposable kit, a long battery life, easy portability, excellent flavour, ease of use and as an extra – a beautiful aesthetic.’ We wholeheartedly agree!
Plus, in the 2020 Vapouround awards, Elf Bar won ‘Best Shisha Vape’ for their NC600 range created with King of Vapes.
All featuring batteries of around 600mAh, each of these disposables boasts a satisfying 600 puffs. Honestly, there’s not much to say about which disposables have the better stats. With TPD regulations preventing disposables from offering more than 600 puffs or 2ml of e-liquid, Elf Bar and Elux vapes are pretty similar!
So… what’s better: Elf Bar or Elux?
This is going to sound like a cop-out, but it truly depends on your personal preferences!
The best thing about vaping with disposables is that there’s no commitment involved: it’s easy to try lots of different brands and flavours because they only cost a few pounds a pop. Consequently, we recommend sampling a range to find out what provides the best vaping experience for you.
