EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition Flavor Review

The BC5000 Thermal Edition features new flavors, an exterior that changes color in the heat of your hand, and the same reliable hardware that made the EBCreate BC5000 one of the most popular devices in the history.

Discussing the color changing technology, a thermal-reactive color changing finish is how EBCREATE describes it, actually buries the lede. There are six new and amazing flavor additions to the EBCREATE BC5000 Disposable Vape Collection

Gamechanger: EBCREATE BC5000 

What is left to be said about the EBCREATE BC5000 that has not been said already. Or experienced first hand as it is an incredibly popular device with adult vapers.

The actual BC5000 design has been a market dominating heavyweight for years now, dating back to when the name Elf Bar was still king. The switch to rechargeable disposable vapes absolutely changed the game. Before, the capacity of a disposable vape was limited by battery size and high-resistance coils were used to prolong battery life, resulting in lower vapor production and flavor density.

Not that the BC5000 is some cloud-chucking box mod, but the extra oomph extracted by a slightly lower resistance coil from the standardized 3.7 lithium-ion battery, coupled with the fact you can charge the battery back up to keep it running at peak song, has completely disrupted how adult vapers view vaping. If your disposable seems to be fading, a quick charge usually will fix what ails it up until the time it is empty. 

Today there are dozens of great rechargeable disposable vapes, Mi-Pod's disposable vapes collection carrying all the top models, but the BC5000 remains widely respected for its flavor, satisfaction and reliability. 




The EBCREATE BC5000 is draw activated and generates approximately 5000 puffs. The nicotine strength is 50mg. The battery is a robust lithium-ion design which is USB-C rechargeable and has a capacity of 650mAh. All of this performance is stored in a compact rectangle with rounded edges that measures only about 3 inches tall if you include the mouthpiece.

The EBCREATE BC5000 is best known for its taut draw and pristine flavors. With little to separate themselves in terms of performance, with most rechargeable disposables running very similar resistance coils and identical wattage outputs, it boils down to airflow and flavor quality.

These are areas where EBCREATE excels. The devil is in the details, with disposable vapes with nearly identical specifications providing different levels of quality when it comes to vaping experience. The BC5000 is consistently ranked at or near the top in customer reviews and sales figures. The enhanced dual coil of the EBCREATE Thermal Edition BC5000 is top-tier with nearly peerless flavor clarity.

e-Liquid Capacity Unchanged

Revisions to the e-liquid capacity conversion rate mean that the BC5000 is now listed as having a capacity of 9.5ml, but the Thermal BC5000 in fact has the same e-liquid capacity and puff count as the previous models, which were listed at 13.5ml. The puff count remains approximately 5000, hence its name.

The same holds true for the brief era when the nicotine strength listed was dropped to 40mg. This was due to the method used to measure added nicotine and artificial flavors to the vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol base. This BC5000 brings the same firepower to the table as its spritely and elfin predecessors, regardless of what it says on the box. 

The EBCreate BC5000 is not an example of shrinkflation. Nor are the flavors. The internal capacity and nic strength capacity are unchanged. 


EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition Review

EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

Despite the unfair, and perhaps intentionally obtuse, accusations leveled at nicotine vape packaging, nostalgic flavors, and bright colors, the BC5000 Thermal Edition is a great reminder that many of the "kids" being marketed to were kids when Reagan or maybe Clinton were in office.

The EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition is a throwback to the old Generra Hypercolor shirts of the 1990s. While the author never had the honor of a shirt that turned from purple to pink in the armpit area during hot weather, the comet like trajectory of these shirts still resonates today with adults of a certain age. The only thing faster than their rise was how quickly these fairly pricey shirts ended up in the trash after destroying loads of laundry with their leaking colors. 

The Thermal Edition BC5000 operates in much the same way, changing color when exposed to the higher temperature of your hand, but the technology is greatly improved. This finish color change is subtle and mostly serves to distinguish the Thermal Edition. 

The secret thermal color changing finish might be dynamic but the main selling point of the EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition is a collection of new flavors. An enhanced dual-coil is optimized to extract optimal flavor from start to finish, which is a huge deal with a disposable that is tearing through the equivalent of almost 14 Juul pods. 


EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition Flavors

Time to get down to brass tacks. There are six new flavors and an improved dual coil to vape them. The flavors are naturally in the style most adults prefer. This means a lot of fruit flavors, confection notes and menthol.

As every veteran vaper has probably noticed these sweet nic salts aren't actually cold pressed from fruit purchased at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Tobacco, not present in this collection, is also an added artificial flavor. It is just an unpopular one that vaping prohibitionists decided was suitable and sufficient for us lowly adult vapers. With flavors as bold as those offered in the BC5000 Thermal Edition, it is easy to see how artificial faux-bacco never stood a chance in the open market.  

There is no Blue Razz or Cool Mint here. These are all unique new EBCREATE Thermal Editions combinations. Those classics can be found in BC5000s with a static color scheme. 


Sour Grape Chew EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

Sour Grape Chew EBCREATE BC5000

The Sour Grape Chew EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition flavor is laden with bold grape confection notes and an absolute delight. This flavor is a nostalgic trip. Imagine the color purple as a flavor and you have an idea of how transformative Sour Grape Chew is.  

It is a worthy rival to the Grape Jelly Lost Mary MO5000 in terms of the best grape vapes, it reads on the palate as a gummy and bubbly flavor with bright Concord grape notes and a hint of ice.


Nectarine EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

Nectarine EBCREATE BC5000 

The Nectarine EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition has an almost peach level of ripeness but with a more acidic citrus kick. It is a delightful tropical fruit vape that will scratch the flavor itch for most adults who use disposables. The tanginess and light iciness work to spotlight the refreshing and sweet fruit flavors. It is a pretty authentic flavor as far as these things go, but more importantly has an outstandingly balanced taste. 


Cherry Dragonfruit EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

 Cherry Dragonfruit EBCREATE BC5000

The Cherry Dragonfruit EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition offers an unparalleled fusion of flavors that are extremely appealing in tandem. With the first inhale, users experience a burst of subtle, sweet cherry notes that gradually intertwine with the exotic and slightly tart undertones of dragonfruit. This combination creates a balanced and refreshing flavor profile that is both bold and complex, teasing your taste buds with a hint of coolness on exhale.


Banana Cake EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

Banana Cake EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition 

The Banana Cake EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition introduces itself with a sweet and creamy taste of ripe bananas, mimicking the familiar satisfaction of a comforting homemade dessert. The rich and moist nuances of cake somehow are captured in some mad alchemy of flavors. The flavor is remarkably similar to a slice of freshly baked banana cake with a cool kick.


Blackberry Cherry EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

 Blackberry Cherry EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

The Blackberry Cherry EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition features the distinctly sweet, slightly tart, and ripe flavors of blackberries. This forward-facing berry flavor is countered with the sweet, vibrant notes of cherries. As the flavors meld, they provide a rich, satisfying taste that is both tantalizing and pleasantly sweet, without being overwhelmingly so. The coolness on exhale is entirely beneficial to the flavor experience.


Fuji Cloudz EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

 Fuji Cloudz EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition

The Fuji Cloudz EBCREATE BC5000 Thermal Edition delivers orchard crisp notes of Fuji apple permeated with a hearty admixture of icy notes. Obviously, this flavor is not made from real fruit but it is still a very authentic apple flavor.


Final Thoughts 

While the puff count and great flavors keep the BC5000 by EBCREATE from feeling dated, the thermal coloration edition is purely cosmetic. The dual coil is up to the task though and the flavors are outstanding. The BC5000 platform may not have have the displays, e-liquid monitors or monster puff counts of some newer rivals but it delivers exactly what adult vapers need. 

Flonq Max Flavors

It is easy to use, tastes great, is satisfying, and compact. The addition of these six great new flavors will keep the BC5000 hardware relevant. If you are looking for some different flavors from a longer-lasting disposable vape. The more sedate and tasteful Flonq Max is a great option. The Flonq Max Disposable Vape Collection is loaded with great flavors and is good for an honest 7500 puffs.

Disposing of Disposable Vapes

The EBCREATE BC5000 is a durable and simple design. But at heart it is an electronic device powered by a lithium-ion battery. It also contains addictive nicotine. Disposable vapes should be kept out of reach of children and pets. 

When the device eventually is empty, it should be disposed of properly. It is a fact that vaping has had a PR problem, which has resulted in adults being denied access to the flavors they prefer.

An FDA sponsored study has found that vape sales decrease in areas with flavor bans and cigarette sales increase, so the stakes are higher than just environmental waste. Please do not litter the packaging or device. 

All manner of untrue myths swirl around disposable vapes and the adults that use them. A brightly colored disposable vape and its packaging stick out like a sore thumb when littered. They are not toys either, so there is really no need to spike them on the ground to see if they still work or pry them open to determine what is inside. 

Here are some steps to ensure you're disposing of your disposable vape responsibly:

  1. Deplete the Battery: Drain the battery as much as possible, balancing the e-liquid and battery levels is easier on a device like RabBeats RC10000 which monitors both. 
  2. Locate a Recycling Facility: Many electronic waste recycling facilities accept disposable vapes. Look up local recycling programs in your area and drop off your used device there.
  3. Dispose of in Regular Waste, if Necessary: If you can't find a suitable recycling facility, dispose of the vape in your regular household waste. However, avoid littering at all costs.
  4. Spread Awareness: Encourage fellow vapers to dispose of their disposable vapes responsibly. As a community, we can contribute to a cleaner and healthier planet.
