Are Geek Bar Products Safe?
Recently, you might have come across a few reports highlighting “super strength” Geek Bar vape devices finding their way into the hands of teenagers.
The popularity of these disposable e-cigs has been further fuelled by social media posts. News outlets have reported what they call a “teenage vaping health scare”, suggesting that these devices are readily available and easily accessible to teens across the country.
The fact of the matter is that Geek Bars are safe, legal, and fully regulated for the UK market. The issue lies with people managing, knowingly or not, to get their hands on counterfeit devices.
Here, we walk through what these devices are, how they work, who they’re for, and how to identify legitimate Geek Bar products.
What are Geek Bars?
The GeekVape Geek Bar is a disposable vaping device that comes pre-filled with 2ml of salt e-liquid with 20mg of nicotine.
As with all vape kits, these disposable vapes are aimed at people who already use nicotine – they’re not a toy, hobby, or novelty item in any way.
They’re nothing more or nothing less than a simple, entry-level vaping product, designed specifically for smokers transitioning to vaping, or as a backup device for existing e-cigarette users while on the go.
Are Geek Bars legal in the UK?
The Geek Bars are TPD-compliant and legal to purchase in the UK, and the same goes for the Geek Bar lite models.
Geek Pro devices, however, are exclusively for the US market, and exceed the legal e-liquid capacity of 2ml – containing 4.5ml, it’s out of bounds of TPD compliance and therefore not suitable for sale in the UK.
Be wary of anyone attempting to sell you this model, and only purchase your products from a reputable seller.
Are Geek Bar products safe?
Geek Bar is a product from Geekvape, who are a trusted, widely recognised, and reputable hardware brand in the vaping industry.
They are totally safe to use and are fully compliant with UK regulations. Since they’re sold ready to use straight from their packaging, they’re already filled and charged, which leaves no room for operational error.
“Safe” is a relative term, however, so it’s worth reiterating that these products contain nicotine, and are solely for use by adults as an alternative to cigarettes to help them quit smoking.
They’re not to be used by children under the age of 18, nor should adult non-smokers use them as a hobby.
