Elf Bar Advent Calendars - Everything you need to know

In the past 12 months, Elf Bar disposable vapes have taken the vape industry by storm. Elf Bars are available in practically every flavour you can think of and are designed as a lightweight, modern-looking and less harmful alternative to traditional cigarettes.

There are many different types of Elf Bars, including the Elf Bar 600 and Elf CR500. Popular flavours include Cola, Blue Razz Lemonade, Watermelon and Berry Peach.

What are Elf Bar advent calendars?

Many videos and images have circulated the UK of Elf Bar advent calendars during December 2022; this has led to a surge in demand for Elf Bar vape advent calendars.

Like with typical advent calendars, instead of chocolate, gift or another surprise, the Elf Bar advent calendar reveals a new Elf Bar disposable for each day leading up to Christmas.

Where can I buy an Elf Bar advent calendar?

Elf Bar advent calendars have been sent to social media influencers for marketing purposes. Elf Bar has confirmed to us here at IndeJuice that the calendars are not available for purchase by the general public as they are limited edition business gifts.

In fact, some of the calenders we came across contain "Elf Bar 2000" vapes inside and other non-UK compliant goods. As such, it would be illegal to sell these advent calenders in the UK due to the e-liquid capacity being greater than 2ml at (20mg).

How can the advent calendars be illegal to sell if I keep seeing them online?

A loophole in the law allows company-to-company trade (also known as 'trade sales') to be out of the scope of the current regulations. This loophole allows for social media influencers to receive promotional items as business gifts that are not covered by current regulations.

The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) is the competent authority for E-cigarettes in the UK and is responsible for implementing the rules and regulations under the TRPR (Tobacco and Related Products Regulations).

The MHRA has explained that UK law permits e-cigarettes to have a maximum e-liquid capacity of 2ml with a maximum nicotine strength of 20mg/ml. However, as some of the Elf Bars present in the Elf Bar advent calendar have an e-liquid capacity of greater than 2ml, they cannot be sold legally in the UK. Therefore, these Elf Bars lack the safety testing that all legal Elf Bars must obtain before UK sale to the general public.

Are Elf Bars Bad For You?

No reported fatalities have resulted from people using Elf Bars, but common side effects of Elf Bars include nausea, headaches, dizziness, insomnia and heart palpitations caused mainly by the nicotine in Elf Bars. The answer to "Are Elf Bars Bad For You?" depends on a number of factors, including whether you continue to smoke while vaping, if you vape nicotine Elf Bars or the nicotine-free variants, whether your vape is a genuine or fake Elf Bar, and whether you are allergic to Elf Bar ingredients, including vegetable glycerine, propylene glycol, flavourings and nicotine.
