We always encourage people to ditch the disposables so we were excited to try the Bar Liquid 3000 Nic Salt E-liquids

Things are getting busy when it comes down to persuading folks away from those wasteful disposables and I’m all for it, this time around I test out some of the Bar Liquid 3000 range which are common flavours in disposables but in 10ml bottles suitable for refillable vapes.

Bar Liquid 3000 Nic Salt E-liquids

There are currently nine flavours available:

  • Blue Raspberry
  • Blue Sour Raspberry
  • Blueberry Ice
  • Energy Ice
  • Grape
  • Mango Ice
  • Peach
  • Strawberry
  • Watermelon Ice

Each 10ml bottle comes in its own box detailing the flavour and legal jargon on the back, the colour is representative of the flavour so you can kind of tell which ones which.

  • E-liquid Ratio: 50VG/50PG
  • Device Required: Pod Kits / Starter Kits / Mouth to Lung
  • Strengths: 20mg

Bar Liquid 3000 Nic Salt E-liquids unboxing

One of the reasons that disposables have so much flavour is that the e-liquid is quite sweet and concentrated due to the low wattage the devices give, but this doesn’t always translate over to ‘proper’ vapes such as pods or stock coil tanks. At the moment the general consensus is to use devices with high ohms, so far I have found 0.8ohms to be optimal. I used the Joyetech ObliQ pod with 0.8ohm coils to test most of the flavours and used a fresh coil for each bottle.

I also tested a few of them in a couple of rebuildable coil tanks and a dripper for those of you that are into DIY coils, but stock mesh coils tended to work out better for these particular e-liquids.

I won’t go over the whole disposables debate but there’s a good reason they are frowned upon as they are so wasteful and environmentally ‘unfriendly’, so by switching over to a more sustainable way of vaping, such as a pod kit with refillable pods, not only will you be doing the planet a favour, but you’ll save a small fortune in the process.

Bar Liquid 3000 Nic Salt E-liquids options

Basically 1 x 10ml bottle is the equivalent of at least 5 disposables or 5 closed pods (non-refillable), a pod/coil should last at least the full 10ml, I get around 15-20ml per coil on average so it costs around £1.00 to £1.30 per 2ml including the pod/coil and e-liquid, if you use a rebuildable (RTA/RBA etc.) then it goes down to around £0.80 per 2ml.

If you are interested in learning how to build your own coils and wick, then the forum is a good place to find tons of friendly advice:

Now onto testing the flavours, obviously taste is subjective, but I will do my best to compare them to the disposables performance/flavour.

Blueberry 

E-liquids.com’s description: "Blueberry Fruit Menthol flavour experience which captures the true taste of sweet and tart Blueberries"

This was a really welcome surprise; I’m not a fan of Blueberry in general but they have nailed this one, the added sweetness helped a lot as it took the tang off for me. The result was so smooth and tasty yet it wasn’t too sweet so the balance was just right for my tastes.

Energy Ice (NRG)

E-liquids.com’s description: "Mixed Fruit Energy Drink flavour served over cool Ice, creating a vape filled with fizzy fun!"

This was one of my favourites out of the lot and is faithful to the disposable flavour, not too sweet and the ice kick softens the flavour to make it one that’s suitable as an ADV (All Day Vape). There’s no distinct flavour as such but ‘energy drink’ is all you can say about it, either way it transfers to a vapable flavour perfectly.

Grape

E-liquids.com’s description: "Smooth fruit flavour featuring the taste of ripe mixed Grapes, offering wave after wave of fruit filled enjoyment!"

Pick of the bunch? Not quite for me as I found it to be a bit too sweet, but it certainly has a distinct ‘grape’ flavour and again, the ice/menthol leaves a very nice aftertaste on your tongue, one I would class as more of a treat.

Mango Ice

E-liquids.com’s description: "A fragrant flavour profile packed with luxuriously exotic Mango notes."

Mango is one of my all-time favourites in nic salts so I was keen to see how this one compared, and it turned out to be one of the best mangos I’ve tried, the flavour of the fruit is unique and impossible to describe unless you’ve tasted the actual fruit, but it’s accurate and a bit more intense, if Chewits made mango chews, then this would be it.

Peach Ice

E-liquids.com’s description: "A smooth and juicy Peach flavour finished off by a cool Ice exhale, just as fresh as the real deal!"

Peach was the first flavour I tried in nic salts a few years back, but I went off it after a while and I only found one brand I liked. The peach is tangy and obviously dominant, but the ‘ice’ menthol is just enough to make it a good all-day vape, I think I will be going back to using this flavour more often.

Strawberry Ice

E-liquids.com’s description: "Fuses succulent summer Strawberries with a crushed Ice exhale, creating the perfect all-day vape."

I was expecting this to be too sweet but it was actually pretty nice, obviously strawberry was the dominant flavour, strawberry chew would be a better way to describe it but with a menthol/ice kick to soften what could have been an overpowering flavour. Better still; this one suited a DIY tank more than most of the flavours.

Watermelon 

E-liquids.com’s description: "A smooth and refreshing fruit flavour profile filled with waves of Watermelon, all tossed over a soothing Ice Menthol exhale"

Watermelon is one of those flavours that can be quite subtle but this one is like watermelon on steroids as the flavour is quite punchy and sweet. The ice element helps to make it more vapable though I did prefer this in an RTA over a stock coil as it toned it down more.

Conclusion

Overall I was impressed with the Bar Liquid 3000 range and they bridge the gap nicely from disposables to more sustainable ways to vape such as pods or DIY tanks, they are all on the sweeter side so they will only suit certain kits, and I would say around 0.8ohm or lower pods/coils would be advisable. They all suited my preferred MTL RTAs nicely and produced the closest flavours to disposables that I’ve tried so I’m pretty happy about that.

Bar Liquid 3000 Nic Salt E-liquids selection

Elf Bar do make a suitable device for these e-liquids; the Elf Bar FB1000 which has been designed to take these liquids or similar. It’s not quite the same as disposables as the airflow is a bit looser and it has a bigger mouthpiece, but it’s a safe bet if you are stuck on which device to change to. I can only suggest the kits I’ve proven to work with this range so far:

  • Eleaf IORE Prime with 0.8ohm pod
  • Joyetech ObliQ with 0.8ohm coil
  • Joyetech EVIO C with 0.8ohm coil (same as above)
  • Vaporesso Luxe X with 0.6ohm pod (new release)
  • Freemax MAXPOD 3 with 0.8ohm pod
  • Elf Bar FB1000 with 0.8ohm coil
  • Geek Vape Aegis Boost 2 with 0.6ohm coil

All of the above pods/coils have lasted at least the full 10ml bottles and some last up to 20ml, it’s early days for these types of e-liquids and the range of suitable products will grow as we test them, but so far I’m finding 0.8ohms or lower are a good start, anything higher (such as 1.2ohms) and you may find the coil or pod only lasts a few ml, anything I have tested with a 1.2ohm coil or pod has failed miserably as the coils start to dry hit or produce a burnt taste within a few ml. I’m currently testing the VooPoo Argus Pod with 0.8ohm pod and I’m up to three refills and it seems like it will be added to the list and will be my preferred option (fingers crossed).

So with that in mind, I would say the Bar Liquid 3000 is a success if you are looking to dispose of those disposables and start vaping with a more sensible, reusable vape kit and save money into the bargain.

Thank you to E-liquids.com for letting us test this range.

My background is Engineering and Professional Photography. Mostly from POTV users knowledge I learned so much about pretty much all styles of vaping and equipment, Cloud Chasing, Squonking, Mouth To Lung, Direct To Lung, Pods, Mechs, Rebuild-able tanks and atomisers etc, and have experience with many many devices and atomisers, it's become a hobby and enjoy trying out the latest gear. I like to think my reviews are plain speaking and informative without getting too technical, if I have to resort to reading the manual then I don't consider it user friendly!
