Fume Disposable vapes and Fuufbar Disposable vape

What is a fume vape?

The Fume is a disposable vape brand that comes in a selection of sizes to suit the needs of the vape user. Whether it's 1,500 puffs all the way up to 3,500 puffs, these disposable vapes offer versatility to suit the vaper as well as plenty of flavors to choose from.

They rival that of traditional cigarettes by mimicking the experience, even down to the vapor production. They're also a lot more affordable than traditional cigarettes cost nowadays.

  • Fume Extra

The Fume Extra is the smallest of the three but still provides a substantial amount of puffs (1,500) per bar. At around $15.95 per device, it's a reasonable price in comparison to other vape products on the market.

The Fume Extra is slim and provides a sleek design that helps for carrying it around easily. Just like the other sizes, the Fume Extra comes in a variety of flavor combinations from Lush ICE to Strawberry Banana and Tropical Fruit.


  • Fume Ultra

Fume Ultra is a step up from the Fume Extra, providing 2,500 puffs per device. The Fume Ultra has the same design as the Extra but it's slightly bigger to cater to the bigger volume of vape juice and the battery capacity to power the device for longer.

Fume vapes are a great way to help provide an alternative if you're trying to quit smoking as they're similar in how they feel to normal cigarettes. The cost of the Fume Ultra is around $19.95, so just a little more than the Extra disposable vape.

Flavor combinations for the Fume Ultra include Banana Ice, Cuban Tobacco, Strawberry Watermelon, and Purple Rain.

  • Fume Infinity

The Fume Infinity is a much bigger device and as such, these disposable vapes are a bigger and chunkier option than the other two sizes. With up to 3,500 puffs per device, these Fume vapes are certainly a great option for regular vape users that need the device to last for a while.

Flavor options available with this model include Pina Colada, Cotton Candy, and Blue Razz to name but a few. The Fume Infinity offers the most puffs and therefore is the most expensive of disposable vapes at $23.95.

How many puffs are in a fume vape?

As mentioned already, each Fume device varies in size and therefore offers a different amount of puffs. This isn't always exact and depending on your usage, you may find you get a few more puffs or less. Just to remind you of the size difference

  • Fume Extra offers up to 1,500 puffs
  • Fume Ultra offers up to 2,500 puffs.
  • Fume Infinity with a larger battery and more capacity, offering up to 3,500 per disposable device.

What is a puff bar?

As one of America's leading innovators for disposable vape devices, the Puff bar is a beloved product for vape users. Each device offers premium quality with nicotine-based products that are tobacco-free, making them a healthier alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes.

The puff bar is much like the Fume vape pens where they come in a sleek packaging and offer a number of puffs depending on the device itself. Here are three of the models available with this disposable vape.

  • Puff plus

Puff Plus offers up to 800 puffs per bar. The puff count is important to be aware of, especially as a new vape user. The more puffs available, the more it's suited to regular or heavier users of vape pens. With the Fume Extra vs the Puff plus, there's no real difference in its size or functionality.

The price is a fraction more at $16.00 but comes in many flavors like the Extra vape option. Flavors like Cool Mint, Guava Ice, and Menthol are all available with this device.

  • Puff flow

The Puff flow is a slightly larger device than the plus option, offering 1,800 puffs but 20 quality flavors that you'll find with the Puff plus. The e-juice capacity is larger with this model but like the Plus, it's not much bigger in size.

Battery life is more advanced with this device and the nicotine strength available will be more apparent when it comes to the output that this vape pen provides. Flavors include Cran Lemon, Peach Mango Pineapple, and Passionfruit. It's a little more costly at $20 per device but more than enough value with the puff count you get.

  • Puff max

The Puff max is the largest device of them all and despite packing a whopping 5,000 puffs per device, it's not that much bigger in size than the Flow option. It packs a great amount of e-liquid for the device's size. The only downside is that it features only 11 flavors as opposed to the 20 in the smaller options.

Flavors include Cool Mint, Strawberry Apple Peach, and Aloe Grape. The cost of these puffs is only $24.00, making them the most beneficial for value.

Which is better to buy?

The key differences with these devices are the number of flavors available with each size and the appearance of the electronic cigarettes. They both offer excellent flavors but the Fume vapes offer more variety with each device size.

For those that are looking for a sleeker design for bigger devices, the Puff bars do offer that compact design, even for the biggest that packs over 5,000 puffs. The Fume and Puff are just as good as one another but for value overall, Fume does provide more affordable options.
