Why Are Elux Legend 3500 Puffs Illegal in the UK?

There is one key reason why the nicotine Elux Legend 3500 puffs is illegal in the UK: There is more than 2ml of e-liquid in each vape: you would not be able to get 3500 puffs from a vape with 2ml of e-liquid (typically, 2ml will give you around 600 puffs).  

UK law prohibits the sale of disposable vapes with tanks that contain more than 2ml of eliquid if they contain nicotine, which means that Elux 3500 puffs that contain nicotine are illegal in the UK. If you have seen an Elux Legend 3500 puffs with nicotine in the UK, it is illegal as it is against regulatory standards and could even be a fake - so do not buy any Elux Legend 3500 puffs with nicotine.

  • E-liquid bottles cannot contain more than 10ml of eliquid.
  • A vape tank cannot have a capacity of more than 2ml
  • Vape packaging must contain nicotine warnings, be child-resistant and be tamper evident. 
  • Colourings, taurine and caffeine among other items are banned ingredients in vapes. 
  • E-liquids must not have a nicotine strength of more than 2% (20mg/ml)
  • The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) must be notified about products before they are sold to consumers.

How to Spot an Illegal Vape: Tips to Help You Identify if an Elux legend 3500 Puffs is Illegal

To avoid getting an illegal vape, one of the best things you can do is know what to look for. When buying make sure to check the following:

  • Nicotine Strength. The nicotine strength of the product should be clearly displayed on all vape labels, just like a bottle of beer. If the product says anything over 2% it is illegal and therefore potentially harmful too. 
  • Puff Count and E-Liquid Capacity of the Vape. The size of the vape (how many puffs and how much e-liquid) should also be clearly displayed on all vape labels. No disposable vape tank should contain more than 2ml (around 600 puffs worth) of eliquid, and no e-liquid bottle should contain more than 10ml of eliquid.

As always, it is important to also choose the right retailer. While it may not seem like a huge deal to break some of these regulations (like why does it matter if a vape contains 12ml of eliquid rather than 10 ml?), any products that break the rules have not been regulated by any UK registered standards boards or agencies. The lack of this means that the product has not been safety tested, so there is no guarantee how safe or harmful this product is and there is no way to track where the vape was made or even what is actually inside each device.  To make sure you are using tested and compliant vapes, make sure to err on the side of caution and always buy from a trusted retailer such as Haypp.
