There is absolutely no question that disposable vapes are the most popular types of vaping devices in the UK in 2022 – and within that category, Geek Bar and Elf Bar are the clear leaders right now. There’s really only one question: When considering Elf Bar vs. Geek Bar, which one is the best? The vaping industry is constantly evolving and changing – and that’s particularly true in the world of disposable vapes. Elf Bar and Geek Bar are both constantly releasing new device models and flavours in an attempt to one-up the competition. Since the two brands are in a constant state of flux – and taste is subjective anyway – there’s no point in declaring one brand better than the other. Even if one brand was clearly superior today, that could change tomorrow. Instead of trying to make a subjective comparison between Geek Bar vs. Elf Bar, we’re going to go in a slightly different direction and evaluate the measurable differences between the two brands on an objective basis. As inexpensive as today’s disposable vapes have become, there’s certainly no reason why you can’t try both. We think it might be helpful to know which brand is more likely to appeal to you, though, and that’s where this article is going to help. Let’s start with an introduction of the different Elf Bar and Geek Bar models that are available as of 2022. What Are the Different Elf Bar Models? Original Elf Bar: This is the Elf Bar model that you’ve probably seen most often in your local convenience stores. It’s the classic Elf Bar disposable vape, and it remains available even though a few newer Elf Bar models have since been introduced. The classic Elf Bar has a 550 mAh battery and includes 1.3 ml of e-liquid. Elf Bar NC600: This is the updated version of the classic Elf Bar. Featuring some of the same flavours along with several new ones, The ELF Bar NC600 has a 400 mAh battery and includes 2.0 ml of e-liquid. The main feature of this device, however, is the updated visual design. At once eye-catching and understated, the Elf Bar NC600 features a lovely array of pastel colours. Elf Bar Lux 600: Some people like a disposable vape that’s understated, and other people want one that’s completely over the top. If you fall into the second category, the Elf Bar Lux 600 is definitely a device that will appeal to you. Each device features a crazy character illustration that you’re absolutely going to love. Elf Bar CR500: The main highlight of the Elf Bar CR500 is a fashionable design that makes the device resemble a bottle made from smooth crystal. Compared to most of the other disposable vapes on the market, though, the Elf Bar CR500 also has another extremely compelling feature in that the mouthpiece is narrow and cylindrical like a cigarette filter. If the wide mouthpieces of most disposable vapes aren’t giving you the authentic smoking experience you crave, we think you’ll really enjoy the Elf Bar CR500. Elf Mate 500: The Elf Mate 500 is something completely new from the company behind Elf Bar – it’s a rechargeable pod system with pre-filled pods. If you love the look and feel of Elf Bar disposable vapes and want to enjoy that same experience with a device that doesn’t need to be discarded after a couple of days, the Elf Mate 500 will be a dream come true for you. It features the same Elf Bar flavours that you know and love. What Are the Different Geek Bar Models? Geek Bar may not offer quite the same assortment of different models as Elf Bar, but it’s hard to argue with success. The original Geek Bar disposable vape is easily one of the most popular vaping devices in the world. It has an appealing shape and a lovely colour assortment, and it isn’t surprising at all that many manufacturers have attempted to copy its design. The Geek Bar has proven so successful that some of the most popular vape juice brands – such as Vampire Vape and Dr Vapes – have begun offering Geek Bars filled with their e-liquids. Although the original Geek Bar is already quite small, you might like to try a disposable vape that’s even sleeker and more pocketable. If that’s that case, the Geek Bar Lite might be the right device for you. While the original Geek Bar has a 500 mAh battery and includes 2.0 ml of e-liquid, the Geek Bar Lite has a 350 mAh battery and comes with 1.8 ml of vape juice. Although it’s dramatically smaller than the original Geek Bar, the puff capacity is only slightly reduced. Elf Bar vs. Geek Bar: Flavours Although it’s certainly fun to talk about the features and specifications of the various disposable vapes, the fact is that nothing is more important than flavour. Finding the perfect e-liquid for your palate makes switching from smoking to vaping a breeze. Trying to use a vape juice flavour that doesn’t satisfy you, on the other hand, can really be a struggle. Thankfully, Geek Bar and Elf Bar both offer so many flavours that it could takes months for you to try all of them. You’re certain to find something you love. Here’s a breakdown of the Elf Bar flavours and Geek Bar flavours available at the time of writing. We’ll also list the specific devices on which those flavours appear.

The way a device looks and tastes are two key components of that experience, and those elements are subjective; only you can decide whether a particular device appeals to your palate and sense of style. We can, however, compare Geek Bar vs. Elf Bar in a more objective way on the basis of overall nicotine satisfaction. There are two ways in which a disposable vape can produce a different experience in terms of the nicotine satisfaction it delivers. The first way is simply by using a higher-nicotine e-liquid – up to the legal limit of 20 mg/ml – and the second way is by producing bigger vapour clouds. The majority of all disposable vapes – not just those made by Elf Bar and Geek Bar – have the maximum nicotine strength of 20 mg/ml, so you’re not going to see a substantial difference between devices there. However, it’s worth noting that the original Geek Bar is one of the few devices offering a lower 10 mg/ml strength. That might be worth considering if you’re a very infrequent smoker or have tried the 20 mg/ml strength and found it too high for your needs. How can you determine whether a particular disposable vape produces bigger or smaller vapour clouds than a competing model? The best way, of course, is by trying the device yourself. However, you can get a general idea of the relative performance of different devices by comparing their battery capacities and puff counts. Suppose, for instance, that two disposable vapes have the same battery capacity of 500 mAh and the same e-liquid volume of 2 ml. One device has a capacity of up to 600 puffs, though, while the other device has a capacity of 400 puffs. In that case, you can probably infer that the device with the lower puff count offers greater vapour production. _________________________________________________________________________________________ Need help with anything vape related or have a question about our products?
