Our Verdict

There aren’t all that many changes to the new BC5000 Ultra, but the changes that have been made are welcome. The all new dual material casing feels much more classy and luxurious. The shiny metal looks great and feels great to hold. These are also small enough that they are easy to conceal in the palm of your hand so they are great for any stealth vapers out there.

The second and most noticeable change is the all new QUAQ mesh coil. This coil delivers improved flavor and better consistency, and it’s another welcome upgrade from the BC5000. The flavors really pop with the BC5000 Ultra and last right up to the final draw. They will last for quite some time as well as they are prefilled with 13ml of ejuice and have a rechargeable 650mAh battery that can be recharged using Type-C.

There are many things that have not changed between the BC5000 and BC5000 Ultra such as the mouthpiece, shape and size of the device, ejuice capacity and battery capacity. But as the saying goes: don’t fix what isn’t broken. 

If you are a fan of the BC5000 or are just looking to try a disposable for the first time, I strongly suggest grabbing one or two of these. 

Check Price

Due to a trademark dispute, ELFBAR has been rebranding their products in the USA as “EBDESIGN”. This means that you may see EBDESIGN branded devices instead of ELFBAR branded devices when shopping in-store or online. Aside from the name, nothing else has changed, and the performance remains the same.

When it comes to disposable vapes, ELFBAR is one of the most popular brands around; and for good reason. They sell many different kinds of devices that cater to all kinds of disposable vape users. Their disposables come in different shapes, sizes, and ejuice capacities so there’s a little something for everyone in their lineup. 

One of their best selling devices, the ELFBAR BC5000, is a personal favorite of mine. Today, I am reviewing the successor to the BC500 — ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra.

The ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra has many of the same great features that the original BC5000 offered. It comes prefilled with a ton of ejuice, 13ml, which will get you around 5000 puffs. The BC5000 Ultra is available in two nicotine options, either 20mg/ml or 50mg/ml.  

The BC5000 also uses the same capacity battery, a 650mAh rechargeable battery, that can be recharged using Type-C charging. 

The biggest change with the new BC5000 Ultra is the claimed “improved flavor consistency”, which ELFBAR says should be satisfying from the first puff up to your very last draw. Let’s see if this is the case.

Design & Build Quality

  • ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra Disposables - 3

The new ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra is the same size and shape as the original, but the design has been upgraded. Unlike the original BC5000 which has an all plastic casing and a soft touch texture, the new BC5000 Ultra comes with a dual material case. The top portion of the device remains all plastic, including the mouthpiece, while the entire body is now made of an alloy material. 

It does not appear as though they have changed anything about the mouthpiece on the new BC5000 Ultra. It is still made of the same material and is the same shape and size as the BC5000. It’s also even located in the same spot, off to the side. The mouthpiece on the original was great and I didn’t see any need to change something that was good to start, so I’m glad to see that they’ve kept this the same. 

The new alloy body is much more classy and makes the device look more expensive than it actually is. The metal body is very comfortable to hold and feels great in the hand. I do wish the edges of the metal that meets the plastic top were smoothed out a bit though as it does feel a little rough.

The rest of the metal body is very smooth and the edges are rounded off to make holding the device that much more comfortable. You can easily fit this device in your palm to conceal it, which makes this a great option for stealth vaping.

On the front of the device there is a large ELFBAR logo printed vertically up the left side of the device. Beside this, in a smaller white font, is the device name BC5000 Ultra, as well as the flavor of the device (these are also printed vertically on the device). On the bottom right corner there is a Quaq logo printed. This is the brand of mesh coil used in the device.

Finally, on the bottom of the device is the Type-C charging port, the airflow holes and the LED indicator. As I said before, this device is great for stealth vaping, and another reason for this is that the LED indicator is not that bright.


Features

There aren’t too many features when it comes to the ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra, but sometimes simple is better. There isn’t an option to adjust the airflow, however the draw is a very satisfying tight MTL so I had no desire to change it. 

The BC5000 Ultra comes with a lot of the same specs as the BC5000. For such a small device the BC5000 comes prefilled with 13ml of ejuice, which is impressive. It also has the same capacity battery as the BC5000, a rechargeable 650mAh battery that uses Type-C to charge. With this large amount of ejuice and ability to recharge, you can expect to get numerous days of vaping from each one. 

The biggest feature upgrade on the BC5000 Ultra is the mesh coil. Each device features a Quaq Tech mesh coil which is supposed to increase the flavor performance. 

The ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra is available in 20mg/ml or 50mg/ml strength. Thankfully, they have these two options as some vapers may find the 50mg/ml option to be too strong. For this review I used the 50mg option and had no issues, but for vapers who may not use this strength, it may be too much. Luckily, this device is available in both options. 


Flavors

ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra Disposables - 2

According to the ELFBAR website, these BC5000 Ultra’s are supposed to come with new flavor options. At first, I thought this meant that there would be an all new flavor lineup. However, this is not the case. Of the thirteen flavors, some are new, however there are some from the original lineup, such as: Blue Razz Ice, Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava, Strawberry Mango and Watermelon Ice. 

One thing I would like to mention is that I received two flavors that are not listed on their website, Blue Cotton Candy and Strawberry Watermelon Bubble Gum.

Finally, I would like to note that the BC5000 Ultra does not seem to have that strong menthol effect that we noticed with many of the flavors for the original BC5000. The flavors available for the BC5000 Ultra are:

  • Blue Cotton Candy (Not listed on site)
  • Blue Razz Ice
  • Dragon Fruit Banana Berry
  • Grape Honeydew
  • Kiwi Dragon Fruit Berry
  • Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava
  • Mint
  • Orange Soda
  • Raspberry Watermelon
  • Strawberry Mango
  • Strawberry Watermelon Bubble Gum (Not listed on site)
  • Strawberry Watermelon Peach
  • Tobacco
  • Tropical Rainbow Blast
  • Watermelon Ice

I’m going to describe how these flavors taste to me and what I think of them. However, keep in mind that just because I like a flavor that does not mean that you will like it. Similarly, if I don’t like a flavor this does not mean that you will not like it. This is solely my subjective opinion.

Blue Cotton Candy

This flavor is very light. To be honest, too light. You can kind of taste the blue cotton candy flavor but it’s very subtle and almost non-existent. The aftertaste is very unpleasant as well.

Blue Razz Ice

This Blue Razz flavor is so delicious. As soon as you inhale you get the mix of blueberries and raspberries. It’s a very natural flavor that is not artificial at all. Also, not too sweet, but sweet enough to keep you wanting more.

Grape Honeydew

This flavor is amazing! The grape and honeydew flavors are such a unique combo and together they are mouthwatering. Upon inhaling you will be blasted with a honeydew flavor that sticks around long enough for the grape flavor to take over. I like that the grape flavor lingers quite a while after exhaling. I strongly suggest trying this one. 

Orange Soda

This one is for all you soda lovers out there, specifically orange soda. Taking a puff of this device feels more like taking a sip of your favorite orange soda. The flavor is not too sweet but does have that carbonated fizzy taste. I wish that the flavor lingered a little longer after exhaling.

Strawberry Watermelon Bubble Gum

I thought I would like this flavor a little more but unfortunately, it’s a little artificial for myself. I can’t really taste the watermelon or strawberry. The gum flavor takes center stage here, which can be great for some people, just not me. This flavor is a little on the sweeter side also.


How do they vape?

ELFBAR BC5000 Ultra Disposables - 1

ELFBAR devices have been taking over the disposable market for a while with their BC5000, so it’s no surprise that the BC5000 Ultra are just as good, if not better. Each BC5000 Ultra delivers a warm, dense draw, which is very enjoyable and satisfying. 

The biggest change with the BC5000 Ultra is the flavor consistency. You get a device that tastes the same from the moment you take it out of the package and first draw on it, right up until the time that there is no more ejuice left. 

The BC5000 Ultra is available in two different nicotine strengths so you can choose either 20mg/ml or 50mg/ml, depending on your preference. For this review I had the 50mg/ml option and found it to be very satisfying and did not find them to be harsh at all. 

With the BC5000 Ultra, you can expect to get a tight mouth to lung draw. There is no way to change the airflow so you get what you get with this device. However, I can say that the draw is very satisfying. I usually prefer a looser MTL draw but I found the draw to be quite nice and satisfying as it is.

The draw activation worked without issue every time I went to take a draw. I didn’t have any issues with any of the five devices I used for this review. The performance from each of the five devices I used is in line with what I would expect from ELFBAR. No leaking. No malfunctions. No issues. 


Verdict

There aren’t all that many changes to the new BC5000 Ultra, but the changes that have been made are welcome. The all new dual material casing feels much more classy and luxurious. The shiny metal looks great and feels great to hold. These are also small enough that they are easy to conceal in the palm of your hand so they are great for any stealth vapers out there.

The second and most noticeable change is the all new QUAQ mesh coil. This coil delivers improved flavor and better consistency, and it’s another welcome upgrade from the BC5000.

They will last for quite some time as well as they are prefilled with 13ml of ejuice and have a rechargeable 650mAh battery that can be recharged using Type-C.

There are many things that have not changed between the BC5000 and BC5000 Ultra such as the mouthpiece, shape and size of the device, ejuice capacity and battery capacity. But as the saying goes: don’t fix what isn’t broken. 

If you are a fan of the BC5000 or are just looking to try a disposable for the first time, I strongly suggest grabbing one or two of these. 

Let me know what you think about the BC5000 Ultra down below. I’d be happy to hear your thoughts.
