How Do You Know When Your Elf Bar Is Dying?

How Do You Know When Your Elf Bar Is Dying?

How Do You Know When Your Elf Bar Is Dying?

One sure-fire way of knowing that your Elf Bar is dying is when you notice changes to the flavour, specifically that it starts to taste burnt or seared. While there might still be some battery left on your vape, which would allow the heating element to work, there's no more e-liquid left.

When this happens, there's nothing for the Elf pen heating element to vaporise. Instead, it simply continues to heat the wicking system, burning the cotton wick and bringing a burnt taste to your vape. Some signs that you are running out of e-liquid include:

  • Less vapour is produced, and it is no longer as strong tasting

Your once creamy puffs full of flavour are long gone when your vape was newly bought. Instead, you are starting to get smaller puffs which are less intense and obviously less satisfying. If this is the case, then you should replace your elf bar so that you aren't inhaling harmful wick smoke.

  • No more vapour is produced by your Elf bar

While your elf bar still heats up, there is just no more smoke coming out. If your wicking system is made of cotton, you'll likely get a burnt taste. If it's made of metal or mesh, this could be a metallic taste instead. This is a sure sign that your elf bar is dead

  • Dead Battery

If your Elf Bar battery dies, you will have to purchase a new elf bar. The battery is the essential part of your Elf bar as it gives the elf bar power to vaporise the e-liquid to allow you to vape.

Why Is My Elf Bar Blinking?

When you see the blue light at the bottom of your Elf Bar blink, it's a signal that the battery of your Elf Bar has run out.

As Elf Bars are meant to be disposable, all you have to do is (responsibly) throw out your current Elf Bar and get a new one in the flavour of your choice! From strawberry to coconut, there's a flavour for every vaper.

The Elf Bars are pre-filled with 2ml of e-liquid upon purchase. This is usually enough to last a casual vaper for about two or three days.

Though the design team planned for both versions to run out of e-liquid when the battery goes flat, there might be chances where your elf bar ends up running out of e-liquid before the battery is dead. In this case, it's also time to get a new elf bar disposable vape.

Why Is My Elf Bar Flashing?

If your elf bar is flashing, then its battery is likely to have run out. Hence, this is a sign for you that it's time to start hunting around for a new elf bar.

It's highly likely that your e-liquid would also be running out soon, and you wouldn't want to get a burnt taste when you vape anyway! With so many different flavours of Elf Bars out there in the market, there's something new for you to try.
