Elf Bar is changing the brand name on its products sold in the United States to EBDESIGN after a federal judge ordered the company to stop using the ELFBAR name until a trademark dispute is decided.
EBDESIGN-branded products will arrive in the U.S. soon after March 10. Product model numbers will remain the same, as will the appearance of the devices. Model numbers will be more prominent on the devices and packaging, and the brand name will be smaller.
Beware of ELFBAR-branded products still being sold in stores. They could be fake (or counterfeit) Elf Bars.
The Elf Bar charging instructions are as follows:
Did you know that “Elf Bar” is a brand? Though Elf Bar’s first disposable was called the “Elf Bar,” the brand name is responsible for dozens of different products, from some of the best disposables, to pod vapes and e-liquid. But the name “Elf Bar” is how a lot of retailers refer to the devices as a whole.
If you have an Elf Bar branded disposable device, there’s a chance that it may not be rechargeable.
The most popular Elf Bar disposables, like the BC5000, are rechargeable. That said, there are actually more non-rechargeable disposable Elf Bars than there are rechargeable ones. Here are two lists of all Elf Bar disposable products and which are rechargeable. Also included is the mAh (milliamp hours) of the battery, which indicates run times as well as charge times (larger mAh basically means longer battery power).
Below is a table you can save for convenience’s sake.
The charge time varies per Elf Bar model. The general rule of thumb is 30-90 minutes, depending on the Elf Bar’s mAh rating and how depleted it is. The lowest mAh is in the shortest charge time, and the highest is in the longest. The average time for charging 650 mAh is approximately an hour.
The Elf Bar disposable will blink its indicator light when it needs to be charged, but if you charge before the indicator light blinks, it will obviously take less time than waiting until the battery is totally drained.
As with most modern electronic devices, Elf Bars charge through USB-C ports. USB-C charge cables are different than traditional micro-USB cables in that the plug is symmetrical and oval-shaped. Micro-USB cables have an asymmetrical shape with one flat side, which always seems to get inserted upside down on the first try. USB-C cables go in on the first try.
With all Elf Bar rechargeable disposables, there’ll be a visible USB-C port, most often on the bottom of the device—not to be confused with an airflow hole.
The Elf Bar disposables don’t come with a charging cable, though. By now, most people have USB-C charge cables around. If not, you can pick one up from any store that sells electronics, even gas stations and drug stores.
As stated, charge the Elf Bar as you would any other small electronic device. All vapes, Elf Bars notwithstanding, are powered by lithium-ion batteries. Practice the same care as you usually do when handling small electronic devices with batteries and their respective power sources.
