Today I’m in familiar territory with another review of the Elf Bar 600 disposable vapes.

Elf Bar 600 disposable vapes main picNow I’m not exactly certain if these are brand new flavours. I’m guessing so. Let’s put it this way. I’m pretty sure I would have remembered the name of one of these disposables.

..As we’ll soon find out!

Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since we first looked at the Elf Bar 600. In the first review I only tested 3 flavours so this is an update. At the time I managed to uncover around 27 flavours. Since then the range has increased to over 30 so the ones under review may well be new additions.

We even rounded up our favourite Elf Bar flavours!

Elf Bar 600 flavour rangeFrom 2018 onwards, Elf Bar have held a firm grip on their philosophy of healthier and better products. Diverse is another word I’d use to describe them.

Elf Bar ELFA with its replaceable pods, the Elf Bar Cigalike and the Elf Bar Elfliq range of bottled E-liquids are all examples of how diverse and open minded this manufacturer is to the needs of the vaping public.

In recognition of this, vapers voted in their droves at the 2022 Ecigclick awards. Elf Bar came away with the top spot for number one disposable vape.

Best disposable vapes 2022

Many factors come into sharp focus to achieve this accolade. Ease of use, build quality, battery life, vapour production and above all flavour quality. These are the attributes vapers will be looking for.

Will those requirements be found in today’s review?

What Can We Expect From the Elf Bar 600 Disposable Vapes?

I think the most important change from the original review is the introduction of different salt nicotine strengths.

Along with the standard 20mg strength we now have the option of 10mg or even 0mg. I think that’s a great move, especially for those wishing to eradicate nicotine completely.

The Elf Bar 600 is quite the slim Jim and certainly adopts the traditional look and feel of a disposable vape. With a diameter of 16mm and a height of 104mm its light weight and pocket friendly.

Elf Bar 600 disposable vapes hand check picIt has a TPD friendly e-liquid capacity of 2ml, all of which is vapable over 600 puffs thanks to the 550mAh integrated battery that’s pre-charged and ready to go.

And of course with its auto draw functionality, vaping doesn’t get any easier than this!

The disposables utilise a leak free design and incorporate a ‘separate E-liquid storage cotton tank’ to keep everything sealed in.

Anatomy of an Elf Bar 600 disposable vape

So we can expect a smooth inhale from the nicotine salt and no E-liquid seeping into the mouthpiece.

Having studied the website it looks like there are currently 39 unique flavours to pick from. These range from fruits, mint, drinks, dessert, bakery and tobacco categories.

I’d say there’s pretty much something for everyone among the flavours listed.

Big shout out to Vape Club for sending these over for the purposes of review. It’s very much appreciated.

As always, taste is objective. A bit like Marmite. Some things you love, some things you hate. Others simply love to hate.

.. You get the gist.

Blueberry Cranberry Cherry

Elf Bar 600 blueberry cranberry cherryElf Bar Says:

Sweet notes of Blueberries paired with tangy-sweet Cranberries and delicious Cherries that create a tantalizing vape experience with a fruity aftertaste.

I Say:

New territory for me. I don’t think I’ve come across this recipe before in a disposable, so what’s it like?

It’s predominantly a Blueberry vape.

We get that classic disposable vape taste and it offers no real surprises. It’s at the forefront of the exhale but there are also some very subtle Cherry notes. I don’t think they’re enhanced as much as they could be, though.

It’s that raised level of sweetness again. I’m sure it’s masking the tiny red fruit, removing some of its tart like qualities as it does so.

Of course, some of it could be attributed to Cranberries but I’ve never really understood their place in a vape to be honest. You will notice its sourness though as it latches on to that sweet laden exhale.

However, the flavour is strong and lingers on the taste buds. You’ll certainly pick out the Blueberry.

Elfsuka

Elf Bar 600 elfsukaElf Bar Says:

A Berry blend with icy highlights capturing a medley of summer Berries fused with refreshing crisp Menthol that creates a cooling vape experience with a delicious aftertaste.

I Say:

Ahem! OK.. I’m probably misreading that title. Don’t tell me you’re not thinking along the same lines though! lol

Anyway, the aroma. It smells very much like an Antiseptic. You may scoff but that’s genuinely the smell I get from the mouthpiece.

You know how you either love or hate a vape? Well. I hate this one.

It honestly has not one redeeming quality about it, I’m afraid. How could it when I feel like I’m vaping something designed for muscular pain relief?

There’s a sweetness pulled up on the inhale but it then goes belly up from there. It does also feel like there are traces of Cinnamon filtering through. I’m at a total loss when it comes to any kind of fruit.

The vape is constantly under the weight of Menthol which is also quite strongly felt with Elfsuka.

I guess I could use it as a palate cleanser.. But then again, maybe not.

Ginger Cola

Elf Bar 600 Ginger ColaElf Bar Says:

A beverage blend with spiced highlights capturing warm and spicy Ginger notes fused with refreshing fizzy Cola that create a tantalizing vape experience.

I Say:

A fresh take on a tired formula. How many Cola vapes have you tried in the past?

I vaped plenty way back in the early days. I never felt there were given the justice they should or could deserve. That’s because they always tasted too concentrated, too syrupy and also sickly sweet.

Nothing’s really changed on that score today but what has made a difference is the addition of Ginger. The combination with Cola is as welcome as Salt and Vinegar as a partnership.

It works fantastically. The spicier qualities of the exhale actually bring a much needed fizz. That’s just what this beverage profile is screaming out for.

Coupled with some finely balanced Coolada, we have a drink flavoured vape with real zing and pop.

This is the same Ginger concentrate found in the Ginger Man Elf Bar 600 Lux Christmas edition. I think it actually works more effectively this time round.

A nice vape to take with you on long, hot Summer jaunts.

Watermelon Bubble Gum

elf Bar 600 watermelon bubble gumElf Bar Says:

Juicy Watermelon flavours paired with sweet Bubble Gum that create a tantalizing vape experience with a fruity aftertaste.

I Say:

It’s a combination of sweetness, Coolada and refreshing Watermelon. The fruit punches through first on the exhale, followed by a concentrated sweetness that sticks to the lips.

I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of such elevated levels of sweetness and all too often it takes centre stage over that mouth wateringly decent Watermelon.

I get that Bubble Gum is the culprit here – or should be but I’m finding a distinct lack of gumminess on this occasion.

If you’re a fellow chain vaper you’ll also need to be aware of how quickly that icy cold blast takes a hold.

Watermelon Bubble Gum has enough appeal but in my opinion also more than enough sweetness.

Watermelon Pomegranate

Elf Bar 600 watermelon pomegranateElf Bar Says:

Juicy Watermelon flavours paired with tangy sweet Pomegranate that create a tantalizing vape experience with a fruity aftertaste.

I Say:

There’s a surprising lack of sweetness on the inhale. I’ve come to brace myself when it comes to disposables so that made for a change, at least.

The exhale is very pleasant indeed. The inclusion of Pomegranate really does make a difference to the flavour. It almost has a sauce like quality to it and I wouldn’t class this as a classic Watermelon vape by any stretch.

In fact, the Watermelon only really makes itself known at the start of the exhale. The Pomegranate then latches on quickly, creating a very different taste altogether.

I’m highly impressed with the blending and I don’t often say that about disposable vapes. It does have a sour edge but again, that stitches in very nicely with everything on offer.

Even the cooling kick to the back of the throat plays its role with Watermelon Pomegranate.

I wasn’t particularly looking forwards to this one but Elf Bar have honestly surprised me – In a good way.

Battery Performance and Number of Puffs

I could distinctly tell when the battery was nearing the end of its life span and the juice was running low. The vape would take on a slightly different flavour. A bit funky.

I did manage a highly respectable 9.5 hours continuous use and for the majority of the time the disposable performed very well. It constantly delivered on the flavour, even at times of chain vaping.

You can easily expect those 600 puffs. It’s an area where the Elf Bar 600 won’t let you down.

Elf Bar 600 Disposable Vapes – Final Review Verdict

Well that was an experience. I thought the flavours went from above average with the likes of Ginger Cola and Watermelon Pomegranate to plain detestable with Elfsuka.

Again, there’s too much sweetener in these vapes for me (personally) to be able to enjoy everything that’s on offer. Elf Bar have shown how they’re capable of mixing flavours to good effect. Also, sometimes the Menthol could do with toning down a little.

In some cases I don’t even think it’s necessary.

The fruits are of generic quality yet will still appeal en masse and appreciated by new or casual vapers. Let’s face it, that’s the target audience and to this end the Elf Bar 600 always succeeds.

So if you’re looking for a reliable and flavoursome vape that constantly delivers, you really don’t need to search too far.

In 2015 I started a Facebook group encouraging members to help others make the switch, sharing thoughts and opinions while acknowledging all the hard work that goes into running a vape shop and the guidance those folks give. I've also created a You Tube channel, Ncboreas Vapes. It's primarily there to help the newer vaper so if you've any questions feel free to drop by! There are so many positives to vaping and absolutely none to smoking. It's a message I continue to spread. Long Live Vaping. Live Longer Vaping.

elf-bar-600-disposable-vapes-reviewElf Bar return with additional flavours that you may either like or loathe. That's the nature of vaping. One thing's for certain. The Elf Bar 600 disposable vapes consistently deliver on flavour whether they're to your liking or not. The MTL restriction is on point and the battery has the legs to last 600 puffs.
