How Many Cigarettes Are In an Elf Bar?
A common question we get at DampFabriek Vape Factory is, ‘How many cigarettes are in an Elf Bar?’ And while there are obviously zero cigarettes in any vape kit, we can compare the amount of nicotine and look at the equivalent puffs you get from an Elf Bar disposable vape as compared with cigarettes.
ElfBar is the most popular disposable vape brands and with a sublime range of disposables including the Elf Bar T600, Gee 600, and the NC600 KOV Shisha Range, there’s little chance of Elf Bar losing it’s place at the top of the Disposable Vape Brands.
Each range offers something different, even if they're all roughly 600 puffs. But for this articles, we're going to concentrate our energies Elf Bar’s best selling disposable the Elf Bar 600, definitely one of the best disposable vapes on the market.
So, how many cigarettes are in a Elf Bar 600?
How Many Cigarettes Are In An Elf Bar 600?
You can get different nicotine strengths with the Elf Bar 600, from zero nicotine up to 20mg, and for our comparison, we’ll be looking at the 20mg kit as it’s our best-selling strength.
To understand how many cigarettes are in an Elf Bar you first need to look at how much nicotine is in either product.
A typical cigarette has roughly 1.1-1.8 mg of nicotine, depending on the strength of cigarette you buy. This averages out between 22-36 mg of nicotine in a packet of 20 cigarettes.
Like cigarettes, nicotine content in vape kits and eJuices is determined in milligram (mg). And in the UK, regulation states that tanks cannot have a bigger capacity than 2ml, which is the size of an Elf Bar, and most other disposable vape kits, such as the Jolly Ranger and the Aroma King disposable.
With each 20mg Elf Bar 600, therefore, you get 2ml of 20mg vape juice. When we do the maths: 2ml x 20mg= we get a total of 40mg in every Elf Bar 600. And as you can clearly see, this is more nicotine than the strongest packet of 20 cigarettes.
If you go by an average packet of cigs, saying 30mg, we can estimate that there’s about 28 cigarettes in a Elf Bar disposable vape kit.
If we look at the typical puffs of a cigarette and Elf Bar, we get a different result. Of course, everyone is different so we have to take the average here. A typical Elf Bar 600 will give you about 600 puffs, whereas a cigarette will give you about 15 puffs. Multiply this by 20 and you get 300, so according to the amount of puffs, an Elf Bar is the equivalent of 2 packets of cigarettes.
So, if we take 600 puffs of 20mg vs 600 puffs of 30mg we can see a cigarette smoker will take in more nicotine per puff than a vaper.
Don’t Be Alarmed Anyway
While there is more nicotine in a Elf Bar than a packet of cigarettes, you shouldn’t be alarmed. First, remember, this is the strongest Elf Bar, and you can get zero nicotine Elf Bars if you don’t want to ingest nicotine.
But what everyone should know is that nicotine is not the killer compound found in cigarettes. When you smoke a cigarette, you are taking in all that tar, carbon monoxide, and other carcinogenic substances, that you do not get with an Elf Bar or any vape juice for that matter.
We’re not suggesting nicotine is good for your health, but it’s certainly not the killer ingredient you get from smoking cigarettes.
Reasons Why Elf Bar is Better than Cigarettes
With the NHS recommending vaping over smoking cigarettes, it should be clear even to the most ardent smoker that Elf Bars and vaping in general is better than smoking cigarettes. So, let's take a look at some of the benefits...
Vaping is 95% Less Harmful Than Cigarettes
Firstly, vaping is 95% less harmful for you than smoking. We already know that Elf Bars and all vape juices do not containing all that tar, carbon monoxide, and other carcinogenic substances you get when you smoke a cigarette.
A cigarette contains 4000+ chemicals and carcinogens, which are very harmful to your body. And although nicotine is a highly addictive substance, it makes stopping smoking is extremely difficult. Smoking nicotine with cigarettes is much worse than the nicotine you get with vaping, because with cigarettes you get all those poisonous chemicals.
Vaping Is Cheaper Than Smoking
At an average price of £14 a packet, cigarettes are expensive! If we compare this with an Elf Bar, you can get almost 3 Elf Bar 600 devices for that much.
Now let's do some fun maths. If you compare how many cigarettes are in an Elf Bar going by the price of a packet of cigarettes. At 600 puffs per Elf Bar, we know this is about 2 packets of cigarettes, so if it was priced the same as cigarettes, we should be paying about £28 for each Elf Bar, no?
Vaping Can Help You Stop Smoking
We know the health and cost benefits of vaping compared with smoking, but another reason to love vaping is that it is more likely to help you stop smoking than other methods.
A smoker doesn’t just enjoy inhaling all that dirty tar and carbon monoxide. No, they also love the habit of smoking: acutally putting the cigarette into their mouths and taking a drag. And it’s missing this sensation that makes many ex-smokers start smoking again.
A 2019 study found that 19 percent of ex-smokers that used vaping to quit smoking were no longer smoking a year later. Compare this with those who used nicotine patches and gum to help them quit smoking, the rate was only 9% quit for good. So, if you want to stop smoking, try vaping, even the NHS recommend it.
Get Your Smell and Taste Back
It’s a known fact that smoking dulls your smell and taste buds, and most ex-smokers are surprised by how much their senses improve after they have quit smoking. Just imagine not being able to smell that beautiful lavender during the summer months, or having your taste buds dampened so much so that you can’t truly appreciate some fish and chips. How awful!
We’re not saying vaping gives your taste buds a boost, but if you vape to help you stop smoking, then your sense of taste and smell will likely improve massively. Just be warned that you will likely hate the smell of a smokers house, though!
How Many Cigarettes Are In a Elf Bar?
There’s no exact equivalent for how many cigarettes are in a Elf Bar, because each product is different. But if we compare the amount of nicotine in each product, we can estimate that there’s about 28 cigarettes in each kit.
But as you already know, there’s more to it than that. And more importantly, they truly are incomparable because you get absolutely none of all the tar, carbon monoxide, and other carcinogenic substances you get in cigarettes. So, how many cigarettes are in an Elf Bar? Zero!
