Elf Bar Mate500 Review-A More Eco-friendly Way of Vaping

It is well known that Elf Bar has delved in disposable vapes for years since 2018, and it has scored multiple honorable achievements in the vape market and it is respected by many vapers.

Shortly since 2018, Elf Bar has been making an effort on innovative product via a smart heating system. As Elf Bar discovers the need for natural-based taste and more healthy ways of vaping are thriving year by year. To get better tastes and to transfer a repeatable experience to customers, the products have been obedient to the keyword of Elf Bar: Healthier and better. After thousands of experiments, Elf Bar found methods of making the products the lowest harmful materials, pure taste and delicate design, only to present you products that will surely meet your demand.

Whereas, today we are not going to talk about the disposable vapes from Elf Bar, but the rechargeable pod device Elf Bar Mate500.

The Elf Bar Mate500 pod vape device has all the advantages that most TPD disposable pod vapes/pod vapes have, compact to carry, easy to use, and most importantly, more eco-friendly.

From the exterior of the Elf Bar Mate500, we can see the sleek outline and slim body. The unique metallic matte texture makes it more smooth and more comfortable to hold and rarely leave fingerprint. To catch up with the trend, the Elf Bar Mate500 pod vape device has pure colour and blend gradient colour for vapers to choose from, the Aurora gradient colour series really got me.

The Elf Bar Mate500 pod vape device is powered by a built-in rechargeable 500mAh battery, with max charging voltage 5V, charging current 1A and type C charging cable, Elf Bar Mate500 can be fully charged from 0%-100% within 2 hours.

The Elf Bar Mate500 pod vape device is compatible with the Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pods (sold separately), the Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pod utilizes the one and first dual coil prefilled pod which delivers the rich flavour and consistent performance during the pod lifespan. The Elf Bar P1 Pod is prefilled with 20mg nicotine strength of 2ml (equivalent to approximately 20 cigarettes) vape juice, and there are 14 different styles of flavours to pick. However, the prefilled pod is the only disposable part of the Elf Bar Mate500. Compared to the disposable vape devices, the Elf Bar Mate500 pod vape device is more eco-friendly. Generally speaking, the battery capacity would support a new prefilled pod from the beginning to the end, that is to say, you will only have to recharge the Elf Bar Mate500 when you run out of a prefilled pod.

Before attaching the Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pod, simply push the button on the bottom of the pod to activate. Then the inhale activation of the Elf Bar Mate500 will do the rest. The Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pods have a magnetic pod connection which makes them easy to remove and apply. The Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pods also have leak-free protection that keeping leakage at bay under regular impacts and use. The unique E-liquid Coil Separation Technology (ECS) isolates the tank and the coil on its own to increase the level of flavour received from the ELFBAR Mate500. The increase in flavour is due to the separation of the vapes coil and pod tank which equates to the lack of exposure of air to the e-liquid during the manufacturing process which degrades e-liquid flavour. It comes equipped with an integrated 1.2ohm coil giving you a restricted inhale and provides a constant voltage output that gives you consistent flavour from start to finish.

Performance & Verdict

We tried several fruity flavours, watermelon, strawberry and Kiwi Passionfruit Guava. As stated above, the Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pod features unique E-liquid Coil Separation Technology (ECS) that isolates the tank and the coil on its own to increase the level of flavour. All the flavours that I tried are not bad, and the strawberry flavour impressed me for I vaped it from start to finish, the flavour did not change any. And there is a breathing light down the pod device, it lights up when you take puffs. On account of the 1.2ohm coil, you would feel restricted inhaling experience but smoother than smoking. And thanks to the constant voltage output, the Elf Bar Mate500 gave me a consistent flavour from the beginning to the end.


  • Constant voltage output
  • Consistent flavour from the beginning to the end
  • Compact to carry
  • Simple to use
  • More Eco-friendly
  • Balanced Performance
  • Great dual coil pod design and performance

To sum up, the Elf Bar Mate500 is a balanced rechargeable pod vape in all aspects. It has all the convenient aspects that disposable vapes have, except that you have to recharge and replace a new prefilled pod when necessary, unlike the disposable vapes, you do not need to dispose the whole device but only the pod when the pod runs out, so it is much more eco-friendly to some extent.

The Elf Bar Mate500 pod vape is an ideal ENDS device for new vapers and smokers who want to make a switch. Because there is literally no fussy preparation works to do, no refill, no change the coil, all you have to do is to recharge, replace the prefilled pods, and inhale to vape. The restricted MTL vaping experience is alike to smoking, and the Elf Bar P1 Prefilled Pod would expel your nicotine craving and help you stay satisfied all day.
