Puff XXL versus Puff Bar

Disposable Vapes

The disposable ecig arms race is afoot, with ever larger designs hitting the market. We have created a comprehensive overview of the contenders in our feature: The Longest Lasting Disposable Ecigs. The newest entrant in this competitive arena is from one of the biggest players. From the makers of the Puff Bar Disposable Vape, the Puff XXL represents a serious escalation in disposable vape ejuice capacity.

At Vapor4Life, we have always carried a wide range of disposable vapes because there is a large overlap in the flavors available. Disposable ecigs are great conduits for the bright and sweet flavors that adult vapers prefer and popular flavors like Lush Ice, Mango, Mint, Banana Ice and others are offered by a half dozen or more brands.

With a growing variety of disposable ecig designs, it is more important than ever to offer our customers the devices they want.

Puff Bar versus Puff XXL

Puff Bar may have started with a single line of disposables with a ton of flavors but they have since expanded their selection and now offer a wide range of vaping options for disposable ecig users. Here is a quick guide to the Puff Bar Lineup. There is quite a wide range as far as sizes but they are all linked by the nic salt ejuices they contain, which are uniformly outstanding. 

The original Puff Bar may be the most well-known of their disposable selections but the industry seems to be veering sharply away from smaller disposables and towards tubular devices which can last for days. At what point will they make these rechargeable and call them refillable vape pod kits? In general, their hardware is comparable to refillable devices but every Puff Bar is currently a disposable, for good or ill. This means no filling, charging or swapping pods. All you need to do is unbox the device, remove the silicone plugs and inhale. No buttons to push. 

Puff Bar

Puff Bar

The original Puff Bar has been a smash hit in vaping circles because of its satisfying draw, amazing flavor selection, and reliability. The original Puff Bar, indistinguishable technologically from many of its rivals. Nic salt eliquid is stored in a cotton polyfill. Originally, the Puff Bar only came in 5 percent nic strength but they have since added a 2 percent option. It was included in our comparison: The Best Lower Nicotine Disposable Vapes.

The original Puff Bar holds 1.3ml of ejuice, about twice the capacity of a Juul pod. Like all other disposables it cannot be recharged. Technically, you can refill a Puff Bar, but there is really no reason to do so.

Puff Bar Plus

Puff Bar Plus

The original Puff Bar had great flavor and a tight draw. But as adult vapers began to flock to disposables as everyday drivers, the market began to demand longer lasting disposables. Puff Bar’s first foray into larger disposables was the Puff Bar Plus. A cylindrical disposable, the Puff Plus holds 3.2ml of ejuice. This is more than twice the capacity of the original Puff Bar. The Puff Plus is available in the same great flavors as the original Puff Bar but delivers considerably more puffs. The draw may be slightly looser and it is a bit more powerful. But the increase in vapor production does not detract from the experience. 

Puff Flow


The Puff Flow is similar in concept to the Puff XL but has two big advantages. The first is that it is actually the larger disposable of the two. It holds 4ml of ejuice. The second is that it has an adjustable airflow. A first for a disposable ecig, this is a feature that many refillable vape pod kits don’t even offer. This gives you the flexibility to control the tightness of the draw.


The Puff Flow is designed for the long haul, with a cap to keep debris out of your mouthpiece and an interesting lightup LED which gives it a unique and high quality feel. The flashiness and features of the Puff Flow certainly make it stand out in a crowded field of disposable vapes. But even with a massive ejuice capacity of 5ml, it is not the heaviest hitter in the Puff Bar lineup. That honor goes to the Puff XXL. 

Puff XXL

Puff XXL

The biggest disposable ecig of them all is currently the Puff XXL, although this may change shortly. TheHolding 6.5ml of ejuice and powered by a 1200mAh battery (for reference this is bigger than the 800mAh battery powering a Smok Novo X and comparable to Smok Nord 2). This big battery is necessary because according to Puff Bar, the Puff XXL is good for an astounding 1600 puffs. Mileage may vary and the number of puffs you get will depend on how long your average inhale is, but there is no doubt that this is a disposable with serious endurance in a category where size does matter.

The Puff XXL may have a huge ejuice capacity but it is not that much larger than the Puff Flow and Puff XL. It retains the cylindrical shape and has a nicely designed mouthpiece. It is still small enough to tote everywhere and has the Puff Bar flavors that adult vapers have flocked to. The nic strength is 5 percent.

Now lets take a look at some of the unique new and classic Puff XXL flavors.

Cranberry Lemon Ice Puff XXL

Cranberry is not just a vodka mixer and treatment for urinary tract infections any longer. It is the foundation of a tremendous new Puff Bar flavor. The lemon flavor cuts through the tartness of the cranberry with a memorable citrus tang and the cool layer of menthol ice makes this a smooth nic salt that is never too mouth puckering. We know what the Cranberry Lemon Ice Puff XXL is here for. Fantastic. 

Aloe Mango Melon Ice Puff XXL

Yes it sounds more like a scented hand soap than an ejuice flavor, but the Aloe Mango Melon Ice Puff XXL is quite delicious and exactly the type of cool and complex nic salt flavor that adult vapers prefer. The combination of melon and mango are double cooled with mint and menthol. An earthy and herbaceous aloe mixes smoothly and quite subtly in with both the mango and menthol tones. An altogether fantastic flavor that will probably see its fair share of imitators.

Pineapple Grape Puff XXL

Pineapple ejuice is complimented when paired with Concord grape. Sweet pineapple mixes with the unmistakable notes of grape on inhale and exhale. A buoyant grape flavor makes this a flavorful all-day vaping alternative for adults who enjoy fruity nic salts but have no interest in menthol ice. The Pineapple Grape Puff XXL is an all-star flavor and enjoyable to the last drop in the enormous Puff XXL disposable ecig.

Cool Mint Puff XXL

There is a new contender for the title of best mint disposable vape. The Cool Mint Puff XXL takes a mint nic salt already considered one of the tops in the industry and multiplies the quantity available by five. The result is a super long lasting disposable vape and a flavor designed to be enjoyed all day. Only now it is in a device that could very well last you a week and according the Puff Bar is good for 1600 puffs. The Cool Mint Puff XXL delivers the flavor that adult vapers demand for longer.

Banana Ice Puff XXL

The Banana Ice Puff XXL combines one of the hottest flavors in vaping with a disposable ecig that holds a ludicrous 6.5ml of nic salt ejuice. Puff Bar estimates this is good for 1600 puffs, a number they emblazon across the front of the box. With a nic strength of 5 percent and a smooth salt nic throat hit, the smooth banana and chilly ice flavor is vivid and fresh throughout the extensive life of the Puff XXL disposable.

Refillable Vape Pod Kits

It is unclear how far disposable vape manufacturers plan on pushing the envelope, is the future 30ml disposables with ejuice bottles affixed. And at some point, it may be worth looking at the more cost effective approach of a refillable vape pod kit and bottled nic salts
