IVG Disposable Vape Bar: A Review of 5 New Flavours

Disposable vape bars have a new contender. It’s the well-established UK e-liquid and vaping device manufacturer IVG. Below, I’ll review five of their new IVG Bar (disposable puff bars) to see if they match up to their excellent and diverse range of e-liquids

Who is IVG?

IVG (I Vape Great) are a prominent UK e-liquid manufacturer. But to suggest their scope is limited to Great Britain would be a mistake. IVG has a presence in over 100 countries across six continents, making them the Coca Cola of the vaping world. 🙂

They’re a great company with a vast array of e-liquids and devices. I’ve previously reviewed their True Salt e-liquid range, and I really liked their exciting and innovative flavours. Most memorable of all was their Rainbow Drops flavour, which accurately captured the taste of a long-forgotten 1980’s candy by Matlow.

For more information on the company, check out this interview with IVG sales director Faheem Suleman here.

The New IVG Bar

Anyway, the good news is that IVG has entered the puff bar market with their new IVG Bar. This disposable vape has been in development for a few years, and IVG is calling it a “next-generation device”. It has a 500 MAH battery, which is perfect for vaping the nic salts contained inside. 

Indeed, the device uses food-grade ingredients and an organic cotton wick. The e-liquids inside are TPD compliant and emissions tested. So, all in all, a good start. 

If you’re not sure what disposable puff bars are, here is a quick primer.

But how does the new IVG puff bar vape?

The Device

The device itself is different from a lot of other options on the market. It’s short and flat, with chamfered corners — so like a curved rectangle. It feels good in the hand, it’s nice and light, and the mouthpiece is curved and very pleasant to use.

Butter Cookie Disposable Vape Bar

IVG Butter Cookie Disposable Vape Bar

First up is the Butter Cookie Bar. As the years progressed, I’ve become a little less fond of gourmand or dessert flavour vapes. I enjoy them in small doses, but not so much as an everyday vape. But for someone who can handle the sweetness, this will be a good flavour.

This e-liquid is interesting and pleasant. It’s a freshly baked butter cookie on the inhale and with sweeter notes on the exhale. It definitely captures the taste of pastry, with a lasting butter taste. It skews more towards butter than sweet.

  • E-Liquid: 2% Nic Salt
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Puffs: 600
  • Battery: 500 mAh

Vanilla Custard Tobacco Disposable Vape Bar

IVG Vanilla Custard Disposable Vape Bar

Another dessert flavour, but with a spin in the form of tobacco notes on the inhale. This flavour made me think about the days when you could smoke in a restaurant. It all seems pretty disgusting in hindsight, but it was nice to kick back with a smoke between your main and your dessert — before inevitably stubbing out your cigarette in the dessert. 

Anyway, I’m not a huge fan of tobacco flavoured e-liquids, but this one is nice and light. More importantly, it doesn’t have the bitter taste of many tobacco e-liquids. Perhaps it’s because the tobacco notes are offset by the creamy vanilla custard exhale. 

Anyway, another fun flavour.

Recommended For: Vapers who like a dessert flavour, or anyone who is nostalgic for the days when you could smoke in a restaurant.

  • E-Liquid: 2% Nic Salt
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Puffs: 600
  • Battery: 500 mAh

Polar Mint Disposable Vape Bar

IVG Polar Mint Disposable Vape Bar

As you might guess, Polar Mint is Mint on the inhale with a pleasant Ice on the exhale. Sometimes I think that mint/ice/menthol flavours are too subtle, but that is not a problem here. This puff bar has a nice throat hit, which makes it pleasant and enjoyable. It’s a great candidate for an everyday vape. Primo!

Recommended For: Vapers who like a strong mint or menthol flavours, or anyone who wants that throat-hit.

  • E-Liquid: 2% Nic Salt
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Puffs: 600
  • Battery: 500 mAh

Aloe Grape Disposable Vape Bar

IVG Disposable Vape Bar: A Review of 5 New Flavours

I’m noticing a lot more aloe vera flavoured vapes these days. Although I was a bit sceptical of it at first, I’ve come around. This aloe flavour, when combined with grape, has a slightly soapy or powdery taste. In my experience, this is not uncommon with grape flavoured e-liquid. 

Anyway, this one is aloe vera and grape on the inhale, with a subtle touch of ice on the exhale. It’s a unique flavour, but maybe not an everyday one — for me anyway.

Recommended For: Vapers who like the less sweet end of the fruit flavour spectrum.

  • E-Liquid: 2% Nic Salt
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Puffs: 600
  • Battery: 500 mAh

Passion Fruit Disposable Vape Bar

IVG Aloe Grape Disposable Vape Bar

For me, passion fruit is often a slightly underwhelming e-liquid flavour. It’s somewhat sweet and somewhat tart, but I find that it generally falls between the two stools. That’s not to say that this one isn’t a pleasant e-liquid because I did vape the bar dry. 

This puff bar is sweet on the inhale and tart on the exhale. It’s not too sour, though, and the whole thing had a flowery or aromatic feel. 

Recommended For: Vapers who like a very subtle and not too sweet fruit e-liquid.

  • E-Liquid: 2% Nic Salt
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Puffs: 600
  • Battery: 500 mAh

Recycle Responsibly

Because disposable puff bars contain e-liquid and a battery, they can’t be thrown into a regular bin. However, some councils do accept batteries as part of their service. If your borough doesn’t take them, you can drop the disposables off in a battery bin in a supermarket.

This handy link contains a recycling locator tool. 

Conclusion

The new IVG Bar is a welcome addition to the growing disposable vape bar market. IVG has established a strong reputation as a brand that you can trust, and this new venture looks like it will be another success for the global giant.

Aside from the flavours reviewed above, there are many others to choose between, like Cola Ice, Ruby Guava, and the intriguing Pineapple Grapefruit Ice.

Overall, the puff bars are even lighter and more discrete than competing brands. As the range matures, expect more flavours to come on the market.

And best of all, if IVG continues their global expansion and you find yourself stranded in some obscure outpost in the Kyrgyzstani mountains, you’ll be able to pick up one of these devices and wash it down with Coca Cola.
