If you've left the house in the last few months, the likelihood is that you've seen at least a couple of Elf Bars or Lost Marys clutched in the hands of people on the street, in the park, or in the smoking area of your favourite bar. These little colourful disposable vapes have become so ubiquitous that it sometimes feels like the whole world is vaping them.
The Elf Bar 600 is one of the most popular disposable vapes of all time, but its crown may soon be stolen by its younger, cooler cousin. The Lost Mary BM600, developed by the same team behind the original Elf Bar, is the cool kid on the block, charming vapers with its funky little rectangle shape and amazing nic salt options.
So what's the difference between the two disposable vapes, and which one should you choose? Let's do a deep dive into the most pressing question in the world of disposable vapes: Elf Bar or Lost Mary?
Elf Bar: The low-down
Elf Bar shot to popularity last summer with the classic Elf Bar 600 as well as a range of other disposable vape varieties including the Elf Bar Lux 600, the Elf Bar Gee 600, the cigarette-style Elf Bar T600, and more. Since then, they've even released two pod kits (the Elf Bar Elfa and the Elf Bar Mate) as well as an Elf Bar cig-a-like perfect for ex-smokers.
But we're not talking about Elf Bar's other products. We're looking specifically at the Elf Bar 600, perhaps their most famous and well-loved creation. This little disposable vape is available in a wide range of nic salt flavours from classic fruits such as Cherry or Strawberry Kiwi to beverage-inspired nic salts such as strawberry Elfbull and Pink Lemonade and subtle all-day vapes such as Spearmint or Grape.
Containing a pre-charged 550mAh internal battery to power up to 600 puffs, this little disposable vape is pre-filled with 20mg nicotine strength e-liquid for a satisfying rush. With that classic bar shape we've come to know and love from all our favourite disposable vape devices, the Elf Bar 600 is great for slipping into a pocket and enjoying on the go.
Lost Mary: A new kid in town
Not content with the success of the Elf Bar vape devices, the Elves then created the famous Lost Mary BM600. These stylish dual colour devices stand out from the crowd with their brand new rectangular pod shape and the well-designed lettering splashed across their front. But, attractive appearance aside, the main standout feature of this disposable vape is the excellent list of nic salt flavours available. Here are some of our favourite flavours from the Elf Bar Lost Mary:
Is this the best apple flavoured disposable vape on the market? Very possibly. We love the Double Apple Lost Mary with its sweet and succulent red apple on the inhale met with crisp and slightly tart green apple on the exhale.
Three of our favourite melons compete for the crown in this Triple Melon flavour. Which will be your favourite?
Mango for days! The Triple Mango Lost Mary BM600 Disposable vape is filled with sweet and creamy mango flavour that will delight your taste buds.
Cotton Candy Ice
Sticky sweetness of your favourite fairground snack meets a refreshing menthol kick in Lost Mary's Cotton Candy Ice flavour.
Blueberry Sour Raspberry
A berry medley with notes of sweetness and tanginess make Lost Mary's Blueberry Sour Raspberry the perfect all day vape.
Watermelon Ice might be the most refreshing flavour from the Elf Bar Lost Mary selection. Juicy watermelon mixes with an icy rush of menthol to create the perfect summer-ready vape juice.
Blue Razz Ice
Your favourite blue raspberry flavour meets tongue-tingling ice in Lost Mary's Blue Razz Ice -- a real fan favourite.
The Lost Mary range currently has two amazing disposable pod devices: the Elf Bar Lost Mary BM600 and the Lost Mary AM600. What's the difference between the two? The design of the vape device. Both using the same 550mAh battery and 2ml of premium nic salt e-liquid, the thing that sets the Lost Mary BM600 apart from the AM600 is its rectangular pod device style shape, while the AM600 returns to that classic bar shape design.
So which is better: The Elf Bar 600 or Lost Mary BM600 disposable vape?
In all honesty, it's a very close call. Today, you can buy Elf Bars and Lost Mary BM600s in almost all the same flavours using the same premium quality and super smooth nic salt. They last around the same amount of time and have a very similar vaping experience due to the similar features.
The deciding factor, therefore, has to be their design. Comparing the appearance of the original Elf Bar with the Elf Bar Lost Mary BM600, we can't help but feel that the Lost Mary blows its cousin out of the water. The Elf Bar 600 looks unassuming and discreet, which is undeniably a characteristic many vapers like, but the Lost Mary BM600 doesn't mind showing off. It's eye-catching, colourful, and well-designed, and that's why we think the Elf Bar Lost Mary wins out.
