What is an Elf Bar? An Elf Bar is a suitable choice for any type of vape user, whether they're a beginner to vaping or they've become a seasoned vape user over time.

If you're interested in exploring the Elf Bar range, particularly the disposable vapes that are rechargeable, then this guide will be helpful for you.

How long does it take to charge an Elf Bar?

A great benefit of using an Elf bar disposable vape is that the recharging time doesn't take forever. Typically, with an Elf bar, it will recharge within a couple of hours.

This can be important for many vape users who may only have a limited number of vape devices at a time. Having them all on charge can leave them without a vape device to use.

It's important to ensure the battery is fully charged before using it. That way, you get the best vape juice flavor possible.

How do you know if your Elf Bar battery is fully charged?

How do you know if it's fully charged or not? When you first recharge the device, a light should flash up. This indicates that it's charging successfully.

Once the light goes off, that means the battery is fully charged and the Elf Bar disposable vape is now ready to use.

There are some occasions when you plug in the vape device to charge and it no longer displays the light when charging. This might be due to a problem with the device itself.

How long does an Elf Bar battery last?

The Elf bar disposable device should last you up to a fortnight depending on how often you're using it.

If you're of legal smoking age and vape 2-3 times a day, you'll probably find the vape juice and the battery will run out in less than a week. The battery is powerful enough to get through the 5000 puff count, more or less.

If an Elf Bar battery has started to work less and less, then it might be worth replacing. No battery nowadays is able to sustain the same performance again and again over a number of months or years. Eventually, you'll need to replace the device.

Reasons why your Elf Bar won't charge

There's nothing worse than noticing a problem with your elf bar. There may be many reasons why this disposable vape is no longer charging. Here are some common problems that may explain why it's not charging.

1. Lack of vape cleaning

Even those disposable vape devices that don't need any maintenance, will still need to be wiped down. Keeping them clean is important and a lack of cleaning can lead to dirt and debris getting into the device and ruining it from the inside out.

A dirty vape pen is going to mean a weaker connection for charging. Make sure to keep the port clean in particular.

2. Run out of puffs

Another reason why it might not be charging is due to the puff count. With the elf bar flavors used in this device, once the 5000 puff threshold has been reached, it'll need to be replaced.

In order to get the purest taste, there should be plenty of puff counts left. Why does your elf bar taste burnt? That's likely down to a lack of e-liquid in the tank.

3. Lack of verification

A lack of verification can be due to a dodgy, knock-off model being sold. It's important to only buy from official stockists of the elf bar like The SmokyBox, for example.

As a result, the device may be faulty and not last as long. With that being said, whenever purchasing online or offline, make sure the device has a verification code that can be checked on Elf Bar's official site.

4. Device failure

Sometimes the devices can simply fail to work. It might be that it's succumbed to wear or tear, or it's a faulty vape device that needs replacing with a new one.

It's worthwhile checking the return period for wherever it is you buy the device from. As a consumer, you're entitled to return the product if it suddenly stops working within a number of days.
