rechargeable elf bar

Vapor Shop Direct is back with another blog featuring an Elf Bar blog. This time, we’re shining the spotlight on a rechargeable Elf Bar; the Elf Bar Mate 500.


The Elf Bar Mate 500

What’s your favourite thing about Elf Bars? We’d expect you to pick the glorious fruity flavours, or the hassle-free experience of cycling through disposable vapes. While it sure is convenient, there are issues with swapping out an Elf Bar for a new one every 600 puffs. For one, the added cost of the device makes disposable vapes more expensive in the long run (since you are paying for more than just the e-liquid each time). Another concern would be the environmental impact of disposing of Elf bar.

What if we told you that there is an Elf Bar that you could reuse? If that doesn’t sound like something that would fit well under the category “disposable vapes”, it’s because it one completely. Allow us to introduce the Elf Bar Mate 500, a semi-disposable vape that you could recharge and reuse, without troubling yourself with refilling a tank or swapping out coils.


How it works

The Elf Bar Mate 500 has attachable/detachable pods which have built-in coils and are filled with e-liquid. Once you are done with one, you toss away the pod (which is much, much smaller than the device itself) and attach a new one to your device.

Design and features

The Elf Bar Mate 500 looks and feels a little different from the completely disposable Elf Bars, such as the Elf Bar 600. The Mate 500 has a smooth aluminium finish that gives it a sleek appearance. The device itself isn’t any larger than your average disposable vape, fitting in your pocket perfectly on a day out. There are 5 colours for you to choose from, including a jet-black version and several colour gradients.

The device packs a rechargeable 500mAh battery, that lasts up to 500 puffs between recharges. This gives you enough power to last on a day out. A USB type C port located at the bottom of the device allows it to be charged rapidly, retaining its availability just as if you are casually cycling through disposable vapes. The mate 500 is inhale-activated, eliminating the need for fussy buttons or settings.

How do P1 pods work?

Each P1 prefilled pod has a mouthpiece, the atomiser, and 2ml of e-liquid. That’s all you need to work your way through 600 delicious puffs of Elf Bar e-liquid without the leftover taste from your previous flavour, a failing atomiser, or the trouble of refilling your device. Once the e-liquid inside is over, toss away the P1 pod and replace it with a new one, possibly a different flavour of your choosing.



Is the Elf Bar Mate 500 cheaper?

The Mate 500 device itself costs £7.99, which is slightly more expensive than an Elf Bar 600. The P1 pods are typically sold in pairs of 2, and cost about £5.45 per pack. While this does put the upfront cost of getting an Elf Bar Mate 500 higher than a typical disposable vape, you would be saving money by the time you reach your 5th P1 pod. If you are a frequent vaper who could only use one Elf Bar 600 for about 3 days, you will be saving massively by the third week.

In addition to being a cheaper option in the long run, Elf Bar Mate 500 vapes are far more environmentally friendly than any other disposable vape. You will be producing far less waste since you are not disposing of the entire device including the batteries.
