UT BAR POWERED BY FLUM
Flum is a familiar name in the disposable vape market and their latest entry is the UT Bar. It delivers as advertised and is a worthy heir to the Flum Pebble and Flum Float disposables. The UT Bar Collection is available in a number of delightful fruit and menthol nic salt flavors. Click here if you want to view the Flum Float collection.
It turns out that most adult vapers are looking for flavor, satisfaction, and convenience. Concerns of vaping hobbyists such as ohms or firmware are not even on their radar.
Draw activated disposable vapes, loaded with smooth nic salts, fit the bill perfectly. They are one time use devices that do not require filling, although the longer lasting models will require recharging. The use of rechargeable batteries allows a compact vape to deliver a massive puff count.
Rechargeable Disposable Vapes
A few years ago, the longest lasting disposables relied on large batteries that could not be recharged and the result was a host of cylindrical disposable vape pens that were approaching the size of a flashlight. Today's rechargeable disposables hold more eliquid and still fit in the palm of your hand.
Far removed from old fashioned cigalike disposables of a decade ago, the modern disposable vape is designed for everyday use.
The innovation of a rechargeable power source is now close to universal in disposable vapes and there is a lot of competition at the top. The UT Bar is the newest model of the popular Flum disposable vape line, which used similar technology. Exclusively available at Mi-Pod Wholesale for the state of Arizona, the UT Bar Disposable Vape hits hard and tastes amazing. How does it stack up against the top performing disposable vapes in the industry in terms of flavor and vapor?
The UT BAR combines elements from the Flum Float and Flum Pebble to create a perfected model. It shares design elements with the Flum Float but has been greatly enhanced. Among the changes are new indicator lights for both battery and eliquid levels. It also boasts a more ergonomic mouthpiece, higher quality materials, better airflow, an increased puff count, and improved rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
Small enough to pocket, each UT Bar comes prefilled with 10ml of 50mg vape juice supplying approximately 6,000 puffs. Fans of the Flum Float and Flum Pebble will enjoy the improved UT Bar design.

UT Bar Specifications
Disposable vapes are a picture of simplicity. They are draw activated and there is no fire button to push. They are perfect for discrete MTL vaping, you simply inhale. Even a seasoned user of a refillable vape pod kit will find use for a disposable vape when traveling or attending an event. They hold far more eliquid and of course are disposable.
In the case of the UT Bar, it has one third the capacity of a bottle of nic salts and has many times the capacity of a typical refillable vape pod kit with a 2ml pod capacity. For example, stalwart devices like the Novo series or UWell Caliburn vape pod kits hold approximately 2ml. A Juul pod holds a mere 0.7ml, and it would take fourteen to equal the capacity of one UT Bar. Even the largest vape mod and vape tank, which burns through lower nicotine freebase ejuice at a prodigious rate due to their higher wattage, does not hold as much as a disposable.
Battery Life and Puff Count
Powered by a 500mAh battery, you should be able to get a day or more of vaping from an UT Bar. The indicator light will keep you apprised of when the UT Bar needs to be recharged. With a USB-C type port, this does not take very long.
If 500mAh sounds a bit small, keep in mind that this is a low wattage device with a relatively high resistance coil. The smaller battery also saves space and is how the UT Bar manages to have such an impressive capacity with a small footprint.
It does not take much battery juice to burn the juice, which is one reason the puff count is so high. The 50mg strength nicotine salts provide ample satisfaction for most adult vapers, and does not require much vapor to perform as advertised.
This is a disposable device and does not have chipset or the features of a vape mod. The actual voltage and current a battery can supply will depend on its state of charge, the temperature, age, and the load it's connected to (among other things). The UT Bar has safety features but is not a “regulated” battery, which means the battery supplies less voltage and current when it's low.
UT Bar Indicator Lights
The indicator light takes out much of the guess work but if a weak tasting puff is another sure sign that the battery is running low. Puff counts can vary depending on how long your average inhale is. Longer drags use more eliquid and battery power.
- White = Approximately 50-100%
- Orange = Approximately 25-50%
- Red = Approximately 0-25%
One interesting innovation is the juice indicator light. This takes out a lot of the guesswork and will change colors from white to orange or red. If the juice indicator light is red, it is time to get a fresh UT BAR.
UT Bar Features
Like most disposable vapes, and many refillable pod kits designed for nic salts, there is no airflow control. This not a huge deal for the vast majority of disposable vape users. It is not a device designed for vapor production. In fact, with a potent salt nic formula, excess vapor is often detrimental. A tight draw and perfect flavor are what disposable vape customers are looking for.
A type-C charger cord is not included but they are inexpensive. This type of charger is an upgrade. They have a symmetrical shape, which makes for a sturdier port and are faster than the once universal mini-USB cables that fill every vaper’s junk drawer.
Vaping the UT Bar
If you are a long-time disposable vape customer, you know the drill. But this is a reminder of just how easy it is for an adult vaper to experience great flavor and vaping performance from a disposable vape like the UT Bar.
- Pull the Device from the box and remove the plastic wrapper. Next remove the plug from the mouthpiece, and tape from the bottom of the device.
- The device will arrive pre-charged, and the indicator light will show you how much charge it has. You can top off your UT Bar using a type-C charging cable. The indicator light will turn white when 50-100% charged. Unplug the device before hitting it.
- Draw lightly to get a feel for how robust the hit is and vapor production. With a nicotine strength of 50mg, giant puffs are not what the UT Bar is all about. But its vapor production is roughly equivalent to pod starter kit, or a rival disposable vape.
UT Bar Flavors
Every flavor in this collection contains a some degree of iciness. This is par for the course in the disposable vape arena. Fusions of fruit and menthol have dominated for years and are clearly preferred by the majority of adult disposable vape users.
As a result, there is a lot of overlap when it comes to the flavors offered by the most popular brands. The UT Bar flavors are predictable, well-crafted, and icy. These are great vapes for fans of icy nic salts. For those looking for a bit less menthol mint, Guava Sunrise or Strawberry Banana are your best bets.
The exhale for most flavors retains hints of the original flavor buried under a blanket of iciness. The primary flavors dissipate within a minute after vaping, leaving the trademark cool mouthfeel to linger for a few minutes.
Aloe Mango Icy UT Bar
The Aloe Mango Icy UT Bar combines ripe mango mixed and a refreshing icy aloe. Aloe has emerged as popular addition to augment fruit flavored nic salts as it adds coolness without minty notes.
The mango tastes syrupy, and there is a cool icy kick. Aloe may sound off-putting as a flavor but adds herbaceous and citrus notes as well. There is a level of tartness that makes this vape taste remarkably different from the rest of the collection.
Blue Razz Icy UT Bar
A sweet icy blueberry raspberry mix that tastes better than most blue razz vapes. The UT BAR Blue Razz Disposable Vape is sweet and cool. If you enjoy icy blue razz, you will enjoy Blue Razz Icy.
Guava Sunrise UT Bar
A sweet fruit fusion that mixes guava and citrus flavors, the Guava Sunrise UT Bar delivers tropical salt nic juice realness. There is a medium amount of ice and guava flavor on the inhale and exhale. The sweet guava is prominent between puffs.
Peach Mango Watermelon UT Bar
The Peach Mango Watermelon UT Bar lives up to its name. You taste sweet ripe peaches, mangoes, and the sweetness of watermelon on the exhale. The peach flavoring tastes like a fresh ripe peach, and the mango is sweet and authentic, but what pulls it together is the airy melon confection flavors which balance out the pure sweetness of the peach.
Sakura Grape UT Bar
The Sakura Grape UT Bar provides a classic grape taste with a hint of cherry blossoms, locked in place with a layer of icy menthol. It is not an overly sweet purple Concord Grape flavor but has semi-sweet, slightly tart grape notes on inhale and a blast of cool on exhale.
Strawberry Banana UT Bar
Summer strawberries mixed with ripe bananas are a natural pairing int he Strawberry Banana UT Bar. The sweet strawnana flavoring cuts through the ice supplying an enjoyable vape experience. There is a medium amount of cool ice flavor to add balance. If you love a sweet strawberry banana nic salt with just a hint of iciness, you will love this flavor.
Super Mint UT Bar
My personal favorite of the collection. The UT BAR Super Mint is sweet, creamy, and minty with a significant iced menthol kick. The flavor is similar to a Crème De Menthe and one of the best mint disposable vapes.
Triple Berries Ice
The Triple Berries Ice UT Bar is a classic mixed berry and ice disposable vape flavor. The inhale provides a hint of coolness to leaven tart and sweet berry notes. There is even a hint of cherry and citrus in this fruit medley. The ice flavor is not overwhelming but notable on exhale.
The UT Bar is compact but sturdy. The new matte finish shell is similar to the Flum Pebbles and supplies a better grip than the slick plastic shell of the Flum Float.
Disposable vapes are a mature technology and the draw is perfect for a mouth-to-lung (MTL) nic salt vape. The UT Bar will shut down before overly long draws tax the battery and coil.
If you are looking for an icy menthol free disposable, you are barking up the wrong tree with many of the flavors. But the flavor quality of a UT BAR is good that the coolness is not distracting. The Strawberry Banana and Super Mint flavors are the two most notable flavors, but fans of icy fare will enjoy the entire line-up.
