The vape kit rising in popularity, the one that everyone tells you is “better than an Elf Bar”, the SKE Crystal Bar. A popular and aesthetically different disposable device, SKE vape promise unrivalled flavour and quality battery life alongside its slick design. What is it really like though? We tested it out and rated it accordingly below. Key Features of the SKE Crystal Bar Like most disposables, the SKE Crystal is a lightweight pocket sized device that doesn’t leak and is completely hassle free. It’s powered by a 550mAh built-in battery that offers up to 600 puffs which is roughly equivalent to 30 cigarettes depending on how you vape. Each kit is pre-filled with 2ml of e-liquid in a 20mg nicotine strength. The liquid used is a 50VG/50PG nic salt that is responsible for the smooth hit and flavour delivery. Inside is a 1.2Ohm mesh coil that backs up the flavour production, but won’t mean very much to the average disposable vaper.

Inside the box is the SKE Crystal Bar (thank god) and a user manual which details a few instructions and some appropriate safety warnings.

It goes without saying that most disposable’s taste better than most refillable’s but every so often there are disposable devices that seem to be on another level. Some of these have included the Elf Bar, Lost Mary’s and the Elux Legend but the SKE Crystal has risen through and to some people, exceeded these devices. We have tested most flavours in the range and they are seriously impressive. The SKE Bar seems to produce this real full flavour that most disposables can’t quite achieve. It’s incredibly smooth and the ice variations are really cool as they should be. We’d put the SKE Bar ranked on par with the top disposables for flavour. Build Quality, Design and Battery Life Build Quality As far as disposables go, the SKE Crystal has some of the best build quality that we’ve seen. It is designed well, it has a robustness to it not found with a lot of disposables. It’s all plastic casing however does cause concern if you were to drop it from any sort of height. Unlike an Elf Bar that has a rubber exterior, the SKE Crystal has no protection so might crack if dropped. Design The SKE Crystal has a square, semi transparent plastic design. It sits well on a table due to it’s square metallic bottom. The mouthpiece is integrated into the plastic casing that protects the battery. The mouthpiece shape is bigger than an Elf Bar but is still very comfortable to vape with it’s duck beak shape. The usual branding and flavour details can be found on the front of the device. Clearly from a design perspective, it is supposed to look crystallised, which gives it this shiny and almost rainbow-like look. What I love about the Crystal bars design is the detail taken to change the colour of every device depending on flavour, inside the casing. For double flavours like a Blueberry Raspberry, there is a fusion of the two colours. Battery Life There isn’t too much to say about the battery life apart from it’s spot on. The battery life of the SKE Bar is coherent with their claims that it lasts 600 puffs. After quite a lot of testing, we found the SKE Bar battery life to comfortably last the lifespan of the device.
