Elf Bar vs. Lost Mary: A Tale of Two Vapes

The iconic disposable Elf Bar kit was released in 2018 and rapidly became the kit of choice among both novice and sophisticated vape users worldwide. It seems like eons ago now, but the makers have continued to innovate over the years, and the brand is as fresh as ever.

In 2022, the first Lost Mary vaping kits arrived on our shelves, throwing users into a quandary about what to buy for their go-to vape experience.

Like its main rival, the Elf Bar, the brand has continued to expand and innovate to create a product with a fiercely loyal following.

Many buyers still see these as competing brands, but in reality, the same parent company owns both, and the underlying technology is the same.

The advantage to this is that if you already love either of these kits, you’ll get the same great vaping experience no matter which one you use.

Another plus is that some accessory items, for example, the Elf Bar Elfa PRO prefilled pods, are fully compatible with the Lost Mary Tappo vape starter kit and vice versa.

What’s the Difference Between a Disposable Elf Bar Kit and its Lost Mary rival?

While they share the same technology, these bars are definitely not the same, and one of them, despite being made by the same manufacturer, is the clear winner.

Let’s dig down into the weeds and see how they stack up.

1. Technology

Both brands use the same battery, and recharging technology, with newer kits using identical cutting edge QUAQ mesh coil technology.

This means you’ll get the same intense flavours, number of puffs, longevity, and ease of recharging whichever brand you choose.

The reality here is that you can’t lose.

Even if you mistakenly bought the wrong brand, or the shop has run out of your personal favourite, you can easily substitute with the other for an equally satisfying and comparable experience.

Does Elf bar or Lost Mary last longer?

Since models within the same class utilize identical technology, they boast an equivalent lifespan.

For instance, the Lost Mary QM600 employs the same cutting-edge quaq technology found in the Elf Bar 600 V2, ensuring comparable longevity. In our experience, we see no discernible differences in their durability during real-world usage. Similarly, the Classic Elf Bar 600 shares the mesh coil technology of the Lost Mary BM600, resulting in comparable longevity.

However, Elf Bar 600V2, Lost Mary QM600, and Lost Mary BM600S, feature superior quaq technology compared to their predecessors, the Elf Bar 600 and Lost Mary BM600. As a result, these newer models offer slightly extended lifespans and deliver more consistent performance than their forerunners.

2. Design

Elf Bar is truly iconic, and for those who began vaping in the early days, there will always be a place in our hearts for the smooth exterior, huge range of colours, and, of course, the convenient pocket-sized dimensions.

Enter the Lost Mary, and your options just got even wider.

The exterior casings are quirky, innovative, eye-catching, and feel entirely different in your hand. Fans love the ASMR ‘dented’ appearance of the OS5000, the psychedelia of the MO5000, and the left-field, retro feel of the ‘spin up, turbo on’ Lost Mary CD.

3. Flavours

Elf Bar is the more mature product of the two, and there are currently 41 flavours to choose from across all devices. The Lost Mary debuted with about a dozen flavours but has increased to 34 at the time of writing, so the gap is narrowing constantly.

There’s a lot of chatter in the vaping blogosphere about the difference between the two ranges, but if you’ve experienced both (and not just written about them), it’s obvious what the truth is.

Superficially, there seems to be a lot of overlap, but in reality, there’s hardly any at all. Each range is unique, and to experience all of them, you’ll need to try out both brands, which gives you more than 70 fun flavours to choose from.

See below for a more complete comparison of the two flavour profiles.

4. Range of Products

Lost Mary offers 19 different products, including fully reusable and fully disposable kits, while Elf Bar offers 30.

As with the range of flavours, it makes sense that the more developed brand has more products, accessories, and design choices, but this doesn’t mean there’s anything significant missing from the Lost Mary range.

5. Price

If you compare like-to-like, for example, a 20mg disposable pod kit with another 20mg disposable pod kit, you’ll find the prices between the two brands to be indistinguishable in most retail outlets.

Having said that, there are always discounts, deals, and offers, so make sure to keep an eye on who’s running promotions and take advantage of the competition between these two sister brands.

A vaping kit is nothing without the juicy e-liquid inside. The benefit of using a refillable kit from either Lost Mary or Elf Bar is their vast range of flavours and the compatibility between the rival devices.

While there is a tiny amount of overlap between the two ranges, a better way to think about it is that you have one huge range that you can use to fill either of your reusable devices.

Here’s what they have to offer.

Elfliq: 30 flavours, measured by fragrance strength, sweetness, coolness, and throat hit

Most Elf Bar Elfliq liquids are combination flavours, but there are some singles as well. Custom flavours like Elfbull Ice, Snoow Tobacco, and P&B Cloudd make it an adventure when choosing new flavours to experience. Read more: Best Elfliq flavours ranked.

Which Disposable Vape is Better for You?

The final decision on which disposable vape is better for you is always going to be personal in the end, but here are some guidelines that will help you make that all-important first choice that will form the memory of your first vaping experience that stays with you forever.

  • Flavours: there is some overlap between the two, but you can find more simple, single-fruit flavours in the Elf Bar range and more fruity, funky flavours in Lost Mary.
  • Look and feel: Elf Bar is more classic, sleek, and discreet, while Lost Mary calls attention to herself with beautiful two-tone shades on every kit.
  • Intensity: some reviewers say the Lost Mary flavours are more intense and Elf Bar more mild, but not everyone agrees. QUAQ mesh technology is used in the later versions of both brands.
  • Nic salt quality: not a consideration. It’s the same company, with the same great quality nicotine salts in both cases.
  • Safety: no need to think too hard; it’s the same high-quality TPD compliant manufacturer in both cases.
  • Value for money: the parent company didn’t set out to make an expensive vs cheap brand choice. Both products have the same long-lasting battery and number of puffs.
