1. Elf Bar
Since 2018, Elf Bar has been providing vapers in the UK with a wide selection of products, from disposable vapes to vape pods and eliquids. They take great pride in their range of carefully tested products, which feature quality components, an impressive variety of flavours and a user-friendly design that caters to both novice and experienced vapers. This is why Elf Bar is one of the most popular brands of vape products in the UK.
Expert Review: “Elf Bar, especially the Elf Bar 600, is a classic vape option - the brand has definitely carved a niche for itself. Their range of vapes features sleek designs that are easy to use and feature an extensive selection of popular flavours. They prioritise providing a satisfying vaping experience for their customers, and are one of my favourite MTL disposable vape options.”
Expert Review: “Lost Mary are best known for their Lost Mary BM600 - a unique vape that has gained a significant following over recent years. I think the main reason for this is their exceptional range of flavours and innovative devices. Vapers will most likely best know Lost Mary vapes for their unique bottle flask design - one of the first bottle-flask disposable vapes on the market. What I like about Lost Mary is their commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, as they keep working to develop and improve their range based on vapers’ feedback (as you can see with the new Lost Mary BM600s).”
Elux takes third place in the best vape brands list. They are best known for their disposable vapes - made for convenience with a user-friendly design and range of different flavour options. The Elux Legend range is their best known collection of disposable vapes (featuring the Elux Legend Mini II and Elux Legend 3500 Puffs 0mg). All Elux Vapes are safety tested and every Elux vape is designed so you can take it on the go with you as each lightweight device is slim and compact.
Expert Review: “Elux vapes all come pre-filled, pre-charged and ready to use straight out of the box, which makes their range of vapes an ideal pocket-sized companion if you are on the move. I feel that if you are looking for a convenient vape without the commitment, trying one of the Elux vapes is a great place to start. I also like that Elux has a quality, high-powered nicotine free vape option with the Elux Legend 3500 0mg alongside their range of nicotine disposable vapes - so it definitely gives them bonus points.”
Expert Review: “SKE is one of the newer brands on the market, but I am becoming a big fan. Personally, the SKE Amare is my favourite with its bottle flask design and unusual crystal-like appearance with solid colour gradients. Their range of devices are definitely sturdy and are portable, with a selection of popular flavours to choose from that are consistent right to the final puffs.”
Vuse vape (formerly known as Vype) is one of the best vape brands not just in the UK but globally too. Vuse offers quality vaping products, from disposable vapes to vape pod kits, that are all well tested to ensure they meet the needs of all types of vapers.
Expert Review: “Vuse vapes are often overlooked when they really shouldn’t be. The Vuse Go in particular has gained a loyal fan base thanks to their array of flavours, nicotine strength options, and user-friendly vape pens. The commitment Vuse has to crafting high-quality devices is really noticeable in the experience you get from a Vuse vape pen. I like that there are so many different Vuse ranges and flavours you can choose from.”
Expert Review: “When I think of Blu vapes as a brand, I think of consistent performance and long-lasting vapes. Their range of vape products, including the famous Blu Bar and Blu 2.0 vape kit, look great and come in a small but varied range of flavours to keep things interesting and offer options for all vapers preferences.”
7. Gold Bar
The Gold Bar vape brand offers only disposable vape kits, but have set new standards with their products combining premium materials and with top craftsmanship to deliver a top vape flavour experience.
Expert Review: “Gold Bar vape is very new, but definitely has grown massively in popularity - more than you could predict would happen in such a short space of time. I like their unique design, with the look of a real gold bar (hence the brand name). They have built their vape kits with a mesh coil for efficiency and offer a range of flavours including some unique and nostalgic British classics (such as Oasis) for a smoother and more efficient vape experience. I personally am a fan of the Gold Bar vape and have the Gold Bar Raspberry Watermelon in my personal vape rotation.”
8. Pod Salt GO
Expert Review: “The Pod Salt GO is the best way to get the flavour and experience of the Pod Salt e-liquid, but without the mess and commitment of a traditional vape setup. I like that these vapes contain the premium nicotine salt formula while still being contained in a leak-proof and pocket-friendly device. The Pod Salt GO is made to be a convenient option to take on the move, and I like this vape as a quick grab and go option if you are looking for a top vape kit to take with you on the go.”
It would not be a list of the best vape brands without the appearance of Flonq. Flonq are widely recognised in the UK for their extensive collection of vapes, which all feature the hallmark of quality and innovation. Their devices are also known for keeping the environment in mind with their disposable vapes: each device can be fully deconstructed so you can recycle all of the vape components. Each Flonq vape utilises the latest in vape technology to ensure that the vape experience is top quality - which is a huge part of what makes them one of the best vape brands.
Expert Review: “From simple disposable vapes to more advanced vape pods kits, Flonq's products are rigorously tested and compliant with regulations, with a balanced selection of flavours, and designs that cater for all types of vapers. To me, it is no surprise that they are gaining a large following among UK vapers who want a more sustainable device that comes with an award-winning design.”
10. Found Mary
Expert Review: “Found Mary is one of the newer vape brands in this list, but is definitely one to watch. Their range of vapes comes in a more limited flavour selection for now, but the flavours on offer are high-quality. Their devices are high-powered but light-weight - a solid option if you like a bottle-flask disposable vape, but want to venture out from other vape brands.”
