Elf Bar FB1000 Pod Kit Review

Our Elf Bar FB1000 review is here to provide an in-depth look at the first ever refillable device from this world-famous brand. Industry giants Elf Bar vape quickly established themselves as leaders of the disposable vape market, but they’ve now taken that same craftsmanship and innovative technology to branch out into the realm of pod vape kits. The FB1000 is the newest member of the Elf Bar vape family, and we're eager to find out if it stays true to the quality and success of their earlier products.

Small, powerful and portable, the Elf Bar FB1000 certainly fits the profile of a stylish vape starter kit. Users have the freedom to pair it with any e-liquid they choose, and the tight MTL draw makes it ideal for those trying to quit smoking and transition to vaping. We hope that by bringing you a comprehensive breakdown of this new Elf Bar reusable vape, highlighting its essential features, aesthetics, and performance, you will be able to decide if this is the right e-cigarette to help you quit smoking for good.

FB1000 Elf Bar Features

The Elf Bar FB1000 is unlike anything we’ve seen from this brand before. Their new pod vape kit is completely refillable and rechargeable, thus requiring a little more maintenance than their disposable predecessors. Nevertheless, it still manages to remain beginner-friendly, giving users an uncomplicated vaping experience without being limited to one e-liquid flavour.

Rather than throwing away the whole device when empty, you’ll need to refill this kit using the handy bottom-fill design. Simply open the silicone cap, drop in up to 2ml of your e-liquid, reattach your pod to the main body and you’re good to go. The pod is held securely in place thanks to a strong magnetic connection for seamless refilling every time. Backed up by a sturdy 1000mAh battery, you can enjoy up to a full day of vaping before recharging the device. Even then, this is fairly rapid as it supports USB-C fast charging.

● Magnetic connection
● 1000mAh battery
● 2ml pod capacity
● 1 x 0.8ohm EBC coil included
● USB-C charging

To get you started, the FB1000 comes pre-fitted with one of Elf Bar’s own coils. This EBC mesh coil has a resistance of 0.8ohm, ideal for beginners seeking an MTL vape that replicates the sensation of smoking a traditional cigarette. If you’re not sure which vaping style is right for you or want to learn more, check out our blog: MTL Vs DTL vaping. While this Elf Bar device is also compatible with some PnP VooPoo coils, it’s best to keep the resistance below 1.2ohms for optimal performance.

Moving on from the inner workings, let’s take a peek at how the FB1000 looks from the outside.

FB1000 Elf Bar Ergonomics and Design

Sleek, stylish, and eye-catching, this vape starter kit bears all the hallmark design features we’ve come to expect from Elf Bar. The bottle-style device is cool and compact, sporting matte black edging and moulded ribbing to improve grip, creating a device that looks and feels great in your hand. Despite being larger and more powerful than their disposables, this refillable Elf Bar feels almost as lightweight as their disposable vapes, perfect for carrying around in your pocket or handbag while on the go.

● Compact and portable
● One-button operation
● Bottle-style design
● Moulded grip

Thanks to the straightforward one-button design, users won’t have to fuss around with complicated settings and screens. The frontal firing button is well-positioned with no rattling, ensuring a quality vape that doesn’t feel too cheap or clunky despite its plastic construction. This device is available in 5 chromatic gradients, each adding a holographic flair to the overall appearance. Users even have the option to attach a lanyard thanks to the handy silicone loop located at the base of the pod.

On that note, let’s take a closer look at how the FB1000 performs.

FB1000 Elf Bar Performance

Although the FB1000 isn’t as simple as the rest of the Elf Bar range, it’s still pretty easy to use—and most importantly— it’s a straightforward enough vape starter kit for beginners to get to grips with. As the device features dual draw operation, users can choose to activate it either by inhaling from the mouthpiece or by pushing the button on the main body.

The auto-draw function is extremely responsive, impressively reacting to even the gentlest of puffs.

● Dual-draw activation
● Up to 30W output
● MTL vaping
● Beginner-friendly

Thanks to the automatic adaptive wattage system, the Elf Bar FB1000 will provide up to 30W of output depending on the resistance of the coil you’re using. This is perfect for providing a seamless MTL experience with moderate vapour production and intense flavour.

When it comes to choosing an e-liquid, we recommend going with a 50/50 or a high PG e-liquid. Alternatively, nic salts are a great option if you want a smoother vape with instant nicotine satisfaction.

With that in mind, it’s time to move on to our verdict.

Elf Bar FB1000 Vape Verdict

Living up to the success of their disposable vapes is no easy feat, but Elf Bar seem to have done exactly that with the introduction of their FB1000 device. Giving users the option to use any e-liquid they like in a fully refillable and rechargeable pod kit was a smart move, making it easier than ever for those wanting to move away from disposables to transition to something more advanced and long-lasting.

Put simply, this refillable Elf Bar is a fantastic piece of kit for those trying to quit smoking or beginners looking for a no-nonsense device that does exactly what it says on the tin. The tight MTL draw allows for a truly satisfying vape without compromising on flavour. While it’s unlikely to satisfy advanced DTL fans, it still makes for a solid budget-friendly backup device for a consistent, all-day vape.
