Elf Bar ELFA Kit Overview
These kits come in a choice of 4 colours and each is prefilled with a 2ml pod containing blueberry (newer ELFA Pod Kits come with blue razz lemonade pod) flavoured nic salt e-liquid and a mesh coil inside the pods, so they are perfect for vapers who enjoy Mouth-to-Lung (MTL) vaping. This kit heats up quickly and provides a rich, full-flavoured vaping experience.
Elf Bar ELFA kits also come with a built in 500mAh battery which can last as long as a regular disposable vape but the difference between a typical disposable and the ELFA pod kit is that this kit can be conveniently recharged via its USB-C charging port. This rechargeable element makes this a more sustainable alternative to regular disposables.
Please note: The ELFA kit and Pods have now been replaced by the ELFA Pro. You can however use original ELFA batteries and pods with the Pro versions, and vice versa.
How To Set Up & Use The Elf Bar ELFA
Using this kit is easy and hassle free. Below you can find some simple steps to take in order to get things up and running:
Insert the USB-C charging cable (sold separately) and fully charge the battery before first use.
Take out your new pre-filled pod and remove the rubber stopper on the top of the mouthpiece.
On each new ELFA pod kit, there is a sticker on the bottom. Remove this to allow airflow to come through during use.
Install the pod by sliding it into the top of the battery. It fits magnetically, so you should feel it connect firmly if done correctly.
Time to vape! As there are no buttons or settings, simply inhale to create vapour.
Once the pod is empty, all you need to do is replace it with a new one. Simply take out your old pod and insert the new pod by sliding it into the top of the battery until you feel it connect magnetically.
Note: This kit does not include a charging cable.
Elf Bar ELFA Review
The Elf Bar ELFA looks almost identical to the original model. This is clearly intentional to attract those who use the disposable version. It has clean lines, a soft touch body and a USB-C charging port on the bottom. There is a hole at the top to insert your pod and despite looking simple, it works well. The only thing that could confuse people is that it perhaps looks a bit too close to the original, which means you may not know the difference between the ELFA and the Elf Bar 600.
Elf Bars are not known for amazing performance, but can the ELFA at least compare? In short, yes it can. From the flavours available, it is just as good as the original.
The vapour production is modest, but quite good for the size of it. The battery keeps up with the pod until it needs charging, and there isn't much flavour drop off. You can view the liquid left inside by taking the pod out.
Recharging the 500mAh battery does not take too long; about 1.5 hours on average. It performs in the same way to most other pre-filled pod kits, but the flavours make it stand out. Blue Razz Lemonade and Blueberry in particular are intense and satisfying.
The ELFA holds up well against the original 600. Users of that device will find the switch over natural, and probably more enjoyable.
Ease Of Use
This kit is very easy to use. All you need to do is insert a pre-filled pod into the battery and vape. It’s as easy as can be for a non-disposable ecig, and accessible to vapers of all experience levels.
The Elf Bar ELFA is recharged by attaching a USB-C cable into the port. The LED light comes on to accept the charge and then you just need to wait until its finished. The only downside is that you do not get a cable with the battery. Luckily, you can buy one for 99p on our website.
Lack of cable aside, the ELFA is absurdly easy to use, so it gets a big seal of approval from us.
It may look just like a disposable, but it is much more than that. The flavours are just as intense, it is easy to use and it's great being able to swap between flavours as you please.
We also hate waste, which makes the choice to switch to the Elf Bar ELFA a real no-brainer. It may not be as sustainable as regular vaping, but it is a much better solution to disposables.
If you love single use vapes, but want something that is just as easy to use, tastes great and won’t break the bank, you owe it to yourself to try the ELFA.
Below FAQ's reviewed by Richard Fleetwood.
What flavour is Elf Bar ELFA?
The Elfa comes with a blueberry flavoured pod. However, it can be replaced with a variety of flavour options which are available to purchase separately.
How long do ELFA Elf Bars take to charge?
Recharging the 500mAh battery does not take too long; about 1.5 hours on average. To charge just plug a USB-C cable into the base. A small LED Light will indicate when the pod vape kit is ready to use.
How many puffs are in a ELFA pod?
Each ELFA pod will provide up to 600 puffs. This is because each contains as much e-liquid as an Elf Bar 600.
Does the Elf Bar ELFA come with a pod?
Yes, the ELFA comes with a pod allowing you to vape straight out of the box. It is prefilled with 2ml of blueberry flavoured e-liquid and once empty to pod can be swapped out with a new one.
What is the difference between Elf Bar Elfa and 600?
The main difference is that the ELFA has a removable pod. This means the battery can be recharged and used multiple times, unlike the Elf Bar 600 which can only be used once. Another benefit is that the pods can be swapped instantly allowing you to switch between multiple flavours. Plus, it offers much better value as a pack of two pods costs almost as much as one Elf Bar 600.
How long does an ELFA bar last?
The ELFA battery will last as long as a full 2ml pod before needing to be recharged. Although, this may differ depending on usage.
Who Should Buy the ELFA Pod Vape Kit?
The ELFA is really aimed at two types of vapers.
If you use disposables, then this would be ideal to move to. It’s easy to use, performs well and has the same great flavours you love. It is more cost effective too, so there is no reason not to move over to this kit.
If you already vape other kits but like the convenience of disposables, check out this ecig. Like the original Elf Bar, it is great for days and nights out, plus you do not need to throw it away. It’s just as easy to use and stands as a better alternative.
