What Makes the Elf Bar BC5000 Special?
We’ll begin this review with an explanation of what makes the Elf Bar BC5000 different from other disposable vapes. If you have any previous experience with disposable vapes, you’re probably used to the small bar-shaped devices that look a little like oversized cigarettes. They typically last up to a few hundred puffs, and you have to replace them when their batteries die. A traditional disposable vape lasts through about one or two days of full-time vaping.
The Elf Bar BC5000 is completely different from a traditional disposable vape. Instead of using the usual bar shape, the Elf Bar BC5000 looks a little like a miniature box mod. Being a little larger than a standard disposable vape allows the Elf Bar BC5000 to have a slightly larger battery cell than normal – and it also allows the device to hold significantly more vape juice.
The Elf Bar BC5000 has 13 ml of e-liquid with a nicotine concentration of 5% or 50 mg/ml. That’s 650 mg of nicotine in total – comparable to many packs of cigarettes. The device also has another innovation that makes it different from most other disposable vapes – it has a rechargeable battery. That’s a necessity for a disposable vape with such a large supply of e-liquid, and it’ll also be a revelation for you if you’ve ever had a disposable vape die on you when it seemed to have plenty of vape juice left. With the rechargeable battery, you’re completely assured that you’ll be able to use every drop of e-liquid in the Elf Bar BC5000 before discarding it.

How to Use the Elf Bar BC5000
As with other disposable vapes, you don’t have to worry about setting up the Elf Bar BC5000 because it’s ready to use right out of the package. When you remove the device from the package, you’ll see a sticker covering the airflow hole at the bottom. The sticker prevents the device from leaking and helps to ensure that it won’t activate in the package. Remove the sticker.
After removing the sticker, you’re ready to start vaping. Puff on the Elf Bar BC5000 in the same way that you would smoke a cigarette. When you use a high-nicotine vaping device, it’s important to remember that you’re getting approximately the same amount of nicotine per puff that you would get from smoking a cigarette. Don’t puff on the device mindlessly all day long. Try to space your vaping sessions out in the same way that you would space out your smoking sessions. This will help to ensure that you won’t consume more nicotine than you require.
If your Elf Bar BC5000 starts to blink, the battery’s charge is depleted. Connect the device to your computer with a USB cable to recharge the battery. The charging process takes about an hour and a half.
How to Fix Problems with the Elf Bar BC5000
The Elf Bar BC5000 is an extremely reliable disposable vape, but you’re bound to experience occasional problems if you use enough devices over a long enough period of time. If your Elf Bar BC5000 isn’t working correctly, this section of our review will help you fix it.
Elf Bar BC5000 Blinking
As we mentioned above, your Elf Bar BC5000 will blink when the battery is dead. Connect the device to your computer to recharge the battery.
Elf Bar BC5000 Not Hitting
If your Elf Bar BC5000 isn’t hitting and has never worked, check the bottom of the device to see if it still has a sticker covering the airflow hole. Remove the sticker and try vaping again. If the device still doesn’t work, try charging the battery.

Elf Bar BC5000 Not Charging
When you connect the Elf Bar BC5000 to your computer, the light should illuminate to show that the charging process has begun. If that doesn’t happen, follow these three steps to fix it.
- Connect the device only to your computer and not to a mains adapter for a mobile phone or tablet.
- Replace the USB cable. The repeated pushing and pulling of a USB cable causes a great deal of stress, and cables tend not to last very long for that reason.
- Remove dust and other debris from the Elf Bar BC5000’s charging port with a toothpick.
Elf Bar BC5000 Tastes Burnt
If your Elf Bar BC5000 tastes burnt, there are two likely causes.
- The device is out of e-liquid. If you’ve been using your Elf Bar BC5000 for a while and have recharged the battery several times, it’s probably time to replace the device. Remember that the Elf Bar BC5000 may not deliver exactly 5,000 puffs and that the exact longevity of the device will depend on how you use it.
- You’re puffing on the device too quickly and need to wait a little longer between puffs. If you vape too quickly, you’ll experience occasional “dry hits” because you’re not giving the device’s wick enough time to refresh itself with e-liquid.
