In this Elf Bar pod kits review, we look at what an Elf Bar pod kit is exactly, how they work and how they compare to the traditional disposable vape.

Elf Bar Pod Kits Review: What are Elf Bar Pod Kits?

In case you haven’t come across the Elf Bar pod kits or pods before, we will break it down to the basics. The Elf Bar pod kits, such as the Elf Bar ELFA PRO and old Elf Bar Mate 500, are a type of vape pod kit. Pod kits (sometimes referred to as pod mods, pod systems or pod vapes) are a type of vape kit that is user friendly and are made up of two parts: a rechargeable device and pre-filled or refillable pods. The Elf Bar pod kits are designed to offer a cost-effective alternative to disposable kits from Elf Bar as they can be recharged and you can change out or refill the pods when they run out of e-liquid. 

How Do Elf Bar Pod Kits Work?

As we have mentioned, the Elf Bar pod kits require two components: the rechargeable device and Elf Bar pods. The rechargeable device contains a battery that powers the device and the pods contain the e-liquid and act as the mouthpiece for the device. 

To get the Elf Bar pod kit to work, you need to recharge the vape with a USB-C cable (usually sold separately) and get one of the Elf Bar pods out of the packaging. Once the device is charged, you connect the pod to the device - this is slid into place and usually makes a “click” sound to indicate that the pod is properly connected. The pod secured in place with the help of magnets to stop it from sliding out or falling out of the device. Once your pod is connected, your Elf Bar pod kit is ready to use. You use the Pod Kit device much like you would an Elf Bar disposable vape. Each of the Elf Bar pod kits works with inhale activation, so they have no buttons or menu systems to navigate. Each pod kit is made for a MTL (mouth-to-lung) vaping style as it does not produce a lot of vapour and gives consistent experience until the battery or pod is depleted. The Elf Bar pod kits are made with high-quality coils and have optimised airflow to maximise the flavour you get from each of the Elf Bar pods.

How Do Elf Bar Pods Work?

Elf Bar pods are the key ingredient to an Elf Bar pod kit as they provide the e-liquid. For most of the Elf Bar pod kits, the pods you get come pre-filled with nicotine salt e-liquid. The device was designed with the specific Elf Bar e-liquid in mind, with the power and output from the device designed to ensure you get the best possible experience in terms of flavour and output.
The way Elf Bar pods work is by connecting them to the Elf Bar pod kit device. Each pod will then secure in place with a “click” sound and then your vape is ready to go. You can use your vape as you would any other disposable vape until the e-liquid runs out. When your Elf Bar pod runs out of e-liquid, you can just disconnect the pod by pulling out of the device and replacing it with any of the other Elf Bar pods. 

These pods usually come in a range of classic Elf Bar flavours, including Blue Razz Lemonade (one of these pods used to come in the classic Elf Bar Elfa kit) as well as Strawberry Raspberry Cherry Ice, Apple Peach and Watermelon.

What Are the Differences Between Elf Bar Pod Kits and Elf Bar Disposable Vapes?

The big question: how do these Elf Bar pod kits differ from their disposable vapes? Here is a quick overview of the differences between the Elf Bar pod kits and Elf Bar disposables. For this overview, we looked at the most popular Elf Bar Pod Kit range next to the most popular Elf Bar disposable vape range.

How Long Does a Device Last?Each of the Elf Bar pods lasts around 600 puffs. You can change the pod out when it runs out. However, the rechargeable device has a lifespan of around 1 year.Around 600 puffs. The device should then be responsibly disposed of and replaced with a new one.
Price(s)Kit - from £5.59 per kit.
Pods - from £4.39 (for a pack of 2 pre-filled pods)
From £3.30 per vape.


Overall, while there are several similarities between the Elf Bar pod kits and the Elf Bar disposables (such as the number of puffs per pod, both have a vape pen design etc), there are several important differences between the two:

  1. 1. Battery Power. The Elf Bar 600 has a 350mAh battery powering it, whereas the Elf Bar ELFA PRO is powered by a 500mAh battery. The Elf Bar pod kit has a battery almost twice as strong vs the disposable.
  2. 2. Lifetime of the Device. The Elf Bar ELFA PRO pod kit can be recharged and has a lifetime of about a year, whereas you need to replace the full Elf Bar 600 device each time it runs out of power and e-liquid (as you cannot change out the e-liquid tank or recharge the device).
  3. 3. The Range of Nicotine Strength Options. The Elf Bar 600 comes in 3 different nicotine strength options, whereas the Elf Bar ELFA PRO pods currently only come in a 20mg nic salt option.
  4. 4. Cost. While the Elf Bar ELFA PRO costs more for the initial setup vs the Elf Bar 600, they eventually end up being more cost effective - with the Elf Bar 600 prices starting at £3.30 per bar vs the cost of 1 pod being around £2.19. Both give the same number of puffs, but if you are a regular vaper, the Elf Bar ELFA PRO comes out as the more cost-effective option. 

An Expert Review: Elf Bar Pod Kits vs Elf Bar Disposables

But how do the experiences differ between these two devices? Our in house vape expert Beth compares the Elf Bar 600 Blue Razz Lemonade vs the Elf Bar ELFA PRO with the Blue Razz Lemonade Elf Bar ELFA PRO pod.

Device Design⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


“Both the Elf Bars contain ELFLIQ (Elf Bar e-liquid) so they have a similar flavour experience - the main differences between the Elf Bar 600 and ELFA PRO Blue Razz vapes is the experience and overall device durability. The Elf Bar pod kit lasted slightly better and had a more consistent experience in my opinion versus the Elf Bar 600 Blue Razz Lemonade, which started to dip in performance as I reached the final puffs. The design and durability impacts the performance too: the draw feels different. I would say that the Elf Bar 600 definitely has a more classic mouth to lung experience with a more airy draw, and the ELFA definitely has a tighter draw in comparison that creates a vacuum that pulls in just a tad more e-liquid. 
Overall, they are very similar - whether you choose an Elf Bar 600 or one of the Elf Bar pod kits are cost and convenience. If you are using your vape on a regular basis, the Elf Bar pod kits offer a more cost-effective option that still give you the same flavours as the Elf Bar 600 but are also more sustainable vs classic disposable vapes. However, if you are not a heavy vaper, you could consider the Elf Bar 600 as a solid option as it requires no charging and can give up to 600 puffs per bar.”
