How Long Does Elf Bar Last?

How Long Does Elf Bar Last?

Elf Bars are one of the best-selling types of disposable vape. They are brightly coloured devices that have become a staple in the vape industry, are highly sought-after, and are quickly becoming the shorthand for all disposables.

Elf bars are simple to use and require no vaping experience. You can use them right out of the box; they're small enough to fit in your pocket. You can pack a few of them when going for a trip and never have to worry about refilling on the road or not having access to a charging port.

You have a vast range of flavours to choose from, allowing vapers to find one that is suitable for them. In addition, they are affordable and excellent for new vapers to test the experience without purchasing multiple parts or liquids. But because the vapes are not refillable or rechargeable, most new vapers wonder how long Elf bars will last – and rightfully so.

How Many Hits Are in an Elf Bar?

The best way to determine how long an Elf Bar lasts is to check the number of hits. It is an easier and more efficient approach because the hit count is researched in a lab to provide the most accurate period you can expect to use the Elf Bar before replacing it.

Most Elf Bars are made to last up to 600 puffs. Some, like the Elf Bar Pro, can contain up to 1500 puffs, but it is illegal in the UK.

The Elf bar is light and compact. It comes pre-filled with a choice of up to 27 tasty vape juice flavours and 2% nic-salt e-liquid. No setup is required for the device, which makes it perfect for new users.

Although the hit count gives you a clear idea of how long the Elf Bar will last, it’s not foolproof. Various factors can alter the hit count;

How often do you vape?

Seasoned vapers or vapers with a high nicotine appetite tend to vape more often than new vapers that are still getting used to their vape bars. Frequent vapers will drain their disposable vapes faster than regular vapers. In such cases, frequent vapers might get less than 600 puffs from their Elf Bar.

Length of the draw

The length of the draw can also have a significant effect on the longevity of the disposable vape. Longer draws consume more e-liquid with each puff, hence the e-liquid runs out faster than shorter draws.

Nicotine concentration

Vapers transitioning from cigarette smoking should pay extra attention to their nicotine concentration. Without the right nicotine, you’ll always have a craving that keeps driving you back to vaping some more. Frequent vaping will drain your vape juice faster. Ensuring you get an Elf Bar with the right nicotine concentration satisfies your nicotine cravings and keeps you from vaping longer, prolonging the disposable vape’s life.

The good news is that Elf Bars come with nic-salts, allowing you to go for higher nicotine concentrations without the harsh effect on your throat.

How Long Should an Elf bar Last in Days?

If you’re planning for a short trip, it helps to know how long your Elf Bar will last in days so you can carry enough bars to last you the length of the trip.

According to research, the average vaper takes 132 to 140 puffs daily. If you go with an average of 135 puffs a day from a 600 puff Elf Bar, the device will last a little over four days.

Still, depending on your vaping habits, how long your Elf Bar lasts in days. Longer draws mean more e-liquid is used up and the quicker it runs out. You should also pay close attention to the number of puffs you take to satisfy your nicotine cravings.

For avid vapers, the Elf Bar would probably last three days before running out of e-liquid. If you want it to last longer, you must vape less. With around 80 puffs a day, the Elf Bar can last about a week.

How Do You Know When an Elf Bar Runs Out

There’re several ways to tell when your Elf Bar has run out. The first and most obvious sign is the change in flavour. As the vape juice is running out, it will start to taste burned or seared. That’s because the battery still has enough power to allow the heating element to work, but there’s little vape juice in the wick, which is overheated hence the burnt taste.

You can also tell an Elf Bar has run out by the blue light at the bottom of the device, which blinks and flashes to notify you the vape juice has finished.

The Bottomline

Although Elf Bar manufacturers have done their best to try and make it predictable for Elf Bar users to determine when their devices run out, the longevity of your Elf Bar boils down to your vaping tendencies and getting the right nicotine concentration that will reduce your vaping frequencies by meeting your nicotine needs in the fewest puffs possible.
