Blu Cigs Review
blu eCigs is huge in the electronic cigarettes industry. They are one of the top marketed companies with tens of thousands of stores nationwide. They have big name celebrities endorsing blu eCigs like Stephen Dorff and Jenny McCarthy. They are making themselves one of the most recognized with ads in magazines, commercials, celebrity endorsements, and even managing to place their product in gift bags at the Grammys.
With all this publicity it made me wonder if blu eCigs really was that good or if it was just all hype. I thought I would put that to the test and order one of their famous starter kits and put it to the test in this review!
- 1 New blu Premium pack with Social Features
- 2 blu e-cigarette batteries
- 1 blu Wall Charging
- 1 blu USB charger
- 1 5-pack cartridges
blu eCigs’ Premium Starter Kit is what I opted to test out in this review. The kit set me back $79.95, which is a decent price. There are other companies that do offer a similar setup, V2 Cigs or Volcano, but blu is slightly cheaper then the rest.
The presentation of the product was very nice. It came in a hard box, not the conventional magnetic flip top box, that was aesthetically pleasing. When you open the box you are presented with the new Premium Pack from blu, underneath is where you will find the rest of the product including the 2 batteries, 5-pack of flavor cartridges, wall charger, USB cable and USB charger. If you ever purchased an iPhone, this kit is packed pretty much just like the iPhone.
Blu eCigs does have a different battery type, a L88b, like Volcano, so if you have products from say V2 or GreenSmoke, that use the KR808D type, they are NOT compatible.
The new Premium Pack which is a portable charging pack from blu, has been redesigned and allows 5 cartridges and 2 batteries to be stored all in one sleek, clean, and durable case. It has indicator lights on the side to allow user to see the amount of charge on the individual battery and the charging case. The charging slot on the PCC now doesn’t require users to screw the battery in, just drop in the battery and close the case to charge, much more convenient. The Premium case also has a “social feature” that when activated, if another blu eCig user with that same type of Premium Pack is within 50 feet it will buzz them which will allow them to know another blu eCig fan is around.
Everything else in the kit is pretty standard, wall charger, USB charger, mini USB cable.
Battery life and performance
Blu eCigs batteries are like most other manufacturers, except they are the L88b type which makes them incompatible with the KR808d types. Like most electronic cigarettes that look like analog cigarettes, they have short battery lives.
Blu batteries last about 1.5 to 2 hours but with the awesome Premium Pack, you can extend your vaping experience for the whole night. The blu Premium Pack allows users to carry 5 flavor cartridges, a full spare battery with cartomizer attached and one spare battery in the charging compartment allowing you to always have a spare battery and cartridges at the ready. The PCC also has indicator lights on the side so you can see how much charge you have left on your electronic cigarette as well as the portable charging pack.
Both the Premium Pack and the batteries are offered in a clean white giving it the illusion of an actual cigarette or the black color which is very slick looking too.
Blu eCigs come with a 1 year warranty on all their batteries and products which is a nice added feature to protect your investment. The process is quite easy and they have customer service 7 days a week to assist you with your issues or concerns.
Vapor and Throat hit
I have to admit that I am a little disappointed by the vapor, it wasn’t as rich and as dense as some others I have tried that are of the cig-a-like type electronic cigarettes. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a nice vape though because it still was a decent cloud of vapor.
As for the throat hit, smooth, very smooth. If you are looking for a very smooth vape, I would definitely recommend blu eCigs. If you’re looking for something that is a little harsh, I would recommend V2 Cigs or Bull Smoke.
blu eCigs offers customers 7 different flavors to choose from. The flavors are from Johnson Creek, a leader in American-made e-liquids with FDA-approved ingredients. Each batch is made fresh, by hand, kind of nice to know that what you’re “smoking” has standards that have to be up-held.
Again, coffee flavored e-liquids are my favorite and blu’s Java Jolt is the best I’ve had by far but of course that’s just my opinion, but we all know you trust my opinion
- Vivid Vanilla
- Cherry Crush
- Magnificent Menthol
- Classic Tobacco
- Java Jolt
- Pina Colada
- Peach Schnapps
High: Approximately 13-16mg
Medium: Approximately 9-12mg
Low: Approximately 6-8mg
Wrapping it up
I have to say, blu eCigs is not all hype. It’s the Premium Pack and the flavor that really sold me on blu eCigs. The look and feel of the blu e-cig and the PCC just felt right. It definitely has a “cool” appeal to it and if you’re looking for something to be a conversation starter, the Premium Pack will definitely draw you attention!
- Premium Pack
- “WOW” factor
- Weak vape
- Small selection of flavors
