Easy to use, very convenient. With the charger you can plug it into your computer to charge while surfing the net at the same time. Charging you battery takes less than 30 mins, that's incredibly convenient.
Waking up and feeling different is the one thing I love about vaping. And you don't feel the urge of picking up a regular cigarette. With ecigs you smoke when you want and you put it down when you want - not wasteful like traditional cig.

Blu use to be the best product on the market. They have changed the juice used in the formula. It is nothing like it use to be. I Do not recommend this supposed New & Improved product. It is really bad!! Vapor was the best. Cost probably comparable to others but high. Batteries pretty good. Overall I can no longer recommend this product.

Quit smoking after over 40 years with Blu $32 starter kit, and then another $32 kit due to the battery life. Did I mention that I ended up with 3 kits? The Blu Vivid Vanilla flavor was the deal maker with me.
Soon moved on to try out other brands to find out batteries can last 1/2-3/4 day, not 1/2-3/4 hour with the Blu. Refilling carts & tanks with juices opens up a whole different world of flavors.

blus were not my first attempt at electronic cigarettes. I tried a less expensive starter kit by Nicotek. I was okay with that one except for the amount of vapor output. I had to draw very hard to get the vapor and the hit I was looking for. The man at the tobacco store said they were all like that. But I thought I would give the blu brand a try so I bought a disposable. I was very happy with the amount of vapor but the nicotine and taste was a bit strong. But that still prompted my to purchase the Blu starter kit. I am very pleased with it. I like the fact that there are 2 different ways to charge it up. And the hard carrying case is super! It holds all the supplies needed and charges the spare battery too! I tried the lighter nicotine level first but decided that wasn't a big enough hit so I have since switched to the ...

I first purchased a disposable at a local Flash Foods convenience store. I have smoked menthol cigarettes for over 5 years and have tried several times to quit, unsuccessfully. I bought the menthol flavor ecig on a whim because I have seen it advertised and wanted to check it out. I used it for a couple of days and then decided to buy my husband one too! We were both very pleased!! I decided that I wanted to try the rechargeable version so I purchased the original starter pack from blu.com. It is so easy to use! I like it much better than the single use because it is smaller and more like a real cigarette. I tried the cherry flavor and gave my husband the second one in menthol. I can not speak directly for him, but he said that he wants his own starter kit now too!! I will be ordering more flavors soon and buying less ... View full review

I received my Blu-Cig in the mail and I am honestly saying that I have not had a cigarette since getting my delivery. I love the fact that it comes in a pack for storage purposes and it also charges on the go. The flavors are good and the vapor makes you feel as though you are smoking a regular cigarette. I also like the fact that it comes with the USB charger for a convenient charge also. I would recommend this product to any person looking to quit smoking, works, or is out in an environment where smoking is against the law. It is great and convenient way of getting that fix or curb the urge to smoke. I will continue to use mine I think it is the best.

This e cig is horrible. On my second starter kit (first one would not hold charge for more than 10 minutes). My second one won't hold charge for more than an hour. Cartridge got so hot when I screwed it into the battery that it started to melt. Worst way to spend $60. Got a victory brand and I couldn't be happier. It lasts me 2 1/2 days (battery and cartridge).

I have mixed feelings about this product. They're kind of like your first love, in the sense that as you get older you realize it wasn't REALLY love, just a crush, foolish youth mixed with raging hormones, and...well, you get the idea. I smoked for 31 years, and this product helped me quit, cold-turkey, and for that I will always be grateful, and think of them fondly. However, that's not to say that they don't have problems, because they most certainly do.

If you google e-cig reviews extensively and read up on them, you will see a pattern when it comes to this brand. Almost universally, people who have used it for any length of time all seem to agree that the battery life on the things are GOD-AWFUL. I know now why they included a portable charging case (called a PCC, for short), when you buy their starter kit, because if ... View full review

I love this product. On January 6th 2012 I picked out my first starer kit and I have never picked up an other real cig.
My house, cloths and my car no longer smell. I just love the taste of all of the flavors. The only one I do not love that much is Java as it is too strong for me.
There are a few more flavors they should carry. I love watermelon, apple, and grape.
Please keep up the good work and I hope that the government does not try to stop a good thing. My doctor is the one that helped me find blu.
I had smoked for 34 years and tried everything. Patches were awful. I Tried everything available over the counter at the drug store but nothing never even started to work for me.
We tried pills that make me so sick that I thought I would never quit smoking.
So my doctor started to look for other things to help me. We ... View full review

After trying your tobacco disposables---both my wife and I loved them. So......Just received my blu Premium 100 kit, carts of each flavor and 2 extra batteries. It was an instant hit with my wife, she loved all the flavors (sorry dislike menthol in general). I on the other hand wanted a stronger hit of taste/flavor like the disposables. At least your have one number one fan in the family :o) We both have tried 5 different ecig brands and her #1 is blu, but mind is another. Hey 1 out of 2 isn't bad :o) We both are impressed with the portable pack and I believe it is very clever, beats all the others and is an industry leader!! Who knows maybe she will get me to the "blu side" over time :o)

Blu wins-----I'm over to the Blu side of the world. My previous #1 fizzled out and Blu is my #1 shared with my #2. Great flavor, good vapor, so-so battery life. Good job Blu!!

blu is the first electronic cigarette I have ever had. My friend recommended me to try it. After I have tried it smokes and tastes like a real cigarette! The weight is perfect and the convenience is amazing. I can smoke anywhere now! The battery fully charges very quickly and the kit comes with an extra one in case the first one is dead. I also like the pack that holds 5 cartridges and the function of charging the extra battery on the go. The usb chargers are incredibly helpful! Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and experience of blu.

I purchased Blu because it seemed like the best value for the money; my problem lies mostly with two things. The vapor and amount of use of the flavored cartridges is poor, the vapor is almost non existent, and the cartridge last only the amount of 4-5 cigarettes compared to the advertised (and that the regular tobacco delivers) 1 and 1/2 packs.

The battery life is probably my biggest annoyance, for me it seems to lack only the same amount that it takes to recharge a battery, so during the day it feels as if you are constantly swapping out the batteries.

I plan on trying another product to compare it with, so while I am not overly pleased I am not throwing out my Blu yet.

First e-Cigarette ~ I Love this product!
I smoke a little less than a pack per day, enjoy smoking and like my Brand of tobacco cigarettes. I decided to try e-Cigarettes hopefully to wean me away from the expensive "analog" traditional tobacco cigarettes and their health issues and getting more difficult to find and buy at stores...errrrrrr

I received my Premium100 bluarette Starter Kit today. Received quickly and free shipping was a bonus...I ordered the Medium (Light) Magnificent Menthol (12mg Nicotine strength) thinking they would be strong enough as my "analog" cigarettes are Menthol Light 100s at 0.8mg Nicotine and 11mg Tar (and other toxins, carcinogens, carbon monoxide, bla bla bla). The Light strength delivers a great amount of vapor and satisfying and the Menthol flavor does not taste "greenish" and has a ... View full review

I've never been addicted to cigarettes, but recently i realized that i'm getting addicted to it ,i tried going cold turkey but urge to smoke was really high and when stressed i end up smoking and hating the smell of it. Then some body told me about e cig .I did a lot of research and found that blu were the best choice as far as price and convenience. The rechargeable carrying case was what really peaked my interest. I tried the first cartridge and i loved it.

Hope with Blu , I will be able to control my smoking.. !!!

After lots of reviews I picked Blu and I was very happy for a long time (5 months) I even upgraded to the lager size since I was a pack a day smoker for 18 years and was getting tired of recharging so often but I did have some problems. First the cord for my charger never worked out of the box but they replaced it no problem, then my battery wasn't holding charge as long so they replaced that too no problem, and sometimes the cartridges didn't last as long as they should or leaked halfway through but I had read people saying all of these things about every product and figured it was just something I'd have to live with until someone figures out a solution. But the flavor I liked in the strength I needed was out of stock a lot so I got other flavors that I like but might not be in the mood for; however then I had three more ... View full review

I love it. Was a pack a day smoker since the age of 14 and have not smoked an old fashioned cig in 9 months. I was using the 51's brand that you buy at Tobacco Outlet. After dumping money on buying new ones because it burnt out constantly and the refill carts were just the juice, the actual cartonizer (sp?) was permanent. Now that I have blus, you get a new cartonizer / vaporizing mechanism so it does not get that burnt taste. As with all e cigs, I have a had a couple problems with a bad cart or irritated by charging... but to me, being able to actually quit sucking in all that tar from reg cigs is everyting. I love the taste of my blu, maybe a little too much. I really love mine and recommend.

BluSmoker commented on May 28 2012:
I bought the disposable tobacco blu and by far it is the best e-cig I've had out of 4 brands. Lots of vapor with good hit. The battery life is extremely long. Really like the blue LED. Highly recommend.

Very disappointed. I purchased the blu premium 100 pack after trying their disposables and liking them. Once I picked up a disposable, I never wanted to touch an analog cig again so when I ordered , I even paid $50 for express shipping since I was going through 1 1/2 disposables a day at $10 a pop. After getting my kit, I was excited. At first I really enjoyed it. There was tons of vapor and a good taste with the menthol. Then I tried a different cartomizer and the problems began. I noticed tht several of them (3 out of 5) had a burnt taste after only a few puffs. Also, the flavor disappeared quickly even when it wasn't burnt. I bought the 100 because they said the battery lasted longer (according to thir site, the same amount of puffs as 1 carto), but I had to charge the battery at least 3-4 times per carto. It ...

I have been a light smoker for many years (about 1/2 a pack a day), but lately found myself increasing to about a pack a day. I didn't want to continue to make a bad habit worse.
I had looked into electronic cigarettes and blu looked like a good choice, but wasn't sure the investment was worth it if I ended up not liking them. Then along came a coupon from Urban Dealight which made the starter pack half price. I decided give it a go. I ordered my starter pack and it arrived in less than a week. I have used them everyday since. I am now down to only 2-3 "real" cigs per day and use my blu the rest of the day (hopefully can completely quit the real ones soon). A big bonus is my car no longer smells like smoke and I can smoke in the house now (didn't use to do this). I can even smoke in my car with the windows up if it is too ... View full review

I purchased my blu premium pack about a week ago and I love it. I had bought blu originally from a Walgreens, opened it up and realized it was the older style. Tried it for about two weeks and fell in love. I then went on the Blu website and saw the newer premium pack with all the new features. I am more of a tech guy, so having the newer style with the battery indicators is nice. Unboxing, everything was nicely packaged and in its place. I ordered from the website and had USPS take care of the shipping. It arrived 6 days after I placed the order. In that time period I had to buy a real pack of cigs, and man did they taste bad. I was pleased with my first blu and very pleased with my second. The only issue I have is the light on the front of the pack is way too bright. I will definitely be purchasing more blu products in ... View full review

BLU is okay except I've frequently received cartridges that were empty or nearly empty - no refunds or replacements on these even when they are received empty. Batteries are not very robust - a couple charges and they're dead. I've returned replacement batteries because they would not hold a charge from the get go. Gets expensive replacing batteries every month. Price is in line with competition, free shipping is great. BLU needs to offer a better battery and find a way to ensure that thier cartridges are full - it's not good business to expect payment for something that is not delivered.

blus are awesome! they are handy and can be used almost anywhere. My apartment is a non smoking place and i can smoke these all i want inside. The only bad thing about blu is their batteries sometimes way overly sensitive they are suppose top activate when u take a puff but i have one that if you touch it of bump it slightly or any sudden movement activates. I need to contact customer service about that. But i like the vivid vanilla flavor and they tell you that you cant refill their cartridges but you can with any e juice. just poke the cartridge with a toothpick or paper clip inside and add a couple drops of your favorite flavor. Excellent product!

I highly recommend the blu premium starter kit. I purchased the original kit a couple of years ago, and I was generally pleased with it. The premium kit is much, much better, and I'm thrilled. In no particular order, here are the pros: (1) the e-cig battery and cartridge are very reliable, giving me full "puffs" consistently; (2) the cartridges last a long time...I think they're rated for 150 "puffs" but mine seem to be lasting longer; (3) the charger pack holds its charge for a long time, and can recharge the batteries multiple times before needing a charge itself; (4) the indicator lights on the charge pack are very helpful to let you know the status of the pack itself and the battery it is charging; and (5) the classic tobacco cartridges are very satisfying and tasty.

I have been vaping for quite some time now. I started with a disposable Blu to try, then moved to a rechargeable 510 setup, and quickly again moved to an eGo Tank system. The eGo Tank is an excellent choice for avid vapers and people who need much more battery life and juice on the go. The battery will last for days and the tank will as well (at least for me). However, I missed the old Blu taste/vapor production. This is mostly due to their Johnson Creek 100% VG blend. I found the nicotine content to be satisfying (full flavor). The pack is nicely designed, charges batteries without threading them in; just pop in the battery and close the lid. The indicators on the sides are nice, they show battery status of both the ecig battery and the pack battery. The social feature would be nice if there were more places selling the ...

I love my blu's the best thing that every happened to me. I have smoked for over 33years and now I am on no nicotine and loving it. The only problems is the Walgreens in my area does not carry the cartages so I have to order online. Sometimes that is a little slow. The batteries need to be charged often but it just bought extra batteries. I love blu ans I tell everyone about them. I pray the Gov stays out of the e cigs because they work.

I have the starter kit from walgreens I'm currently still trying to see if i like it so far so good but does anyone know when the cartridges are out i have the menthol flavor in now and it seems to have a nasty burnt taste that i dnt remember having when i first started it. I usually would smoke a pack a day and its been two days and it still has good vapor. Can anyone help me please????

Eth777 commented on March 02 2012:
Here's a Tip: When it start tasting dry or burnt, go online and buy a bottle of eliquid ejuice from any vendor and refill the cartomizer/cartridge. Pop off the lid of the cart from the bottom of the ecig where the suck hole is at and put in 10-15 drops of ejuice. If you need more info on how to refill the cart just Youtube it! I recommend ECBlend for juices because of their wide selections and customizable flavors, and plus it's probably one of the cheapest around. When I first got my blu I was going through a pack of cart in a few days. It can get quite expensive but not as much compared with smoking real Cigs. After learning how to refill, I can get a month worth of vaporing with one pack of cartridge and a bottle of ejuice. In addition to saving money, I can get greater range of flavors. My review of the blu is that I can relate with a lot of other people complaining that the blu batt. doesn't last as long. I went and got a KR808D-1 and now I am a happy camper. The new KR808D-1 batt last longer and holds more juice. The vapors are excellent with a amazing "throat hit". Been 2 weeks off from smoking a real Cig and I am breathing much better than ever. I am a happy camper! Good luck and happy vaping!

Paige commented on February 28 2012:
The "burnt" taste is most likely a "dry spot" when you puff on the water vapor cartridge too frequently. When the cartridge is out, you wont get vapor. Take shorter puffs with break in between, perhaps. =)

I dont really care what other people think blu is the best e cig around, they give you two batteries and a charger for a reason. I smoke two packs a day, and it does suit my needs quite well. The cartridge actually lasts a while if you have cherry crush.

I started with the Blu brands disposable and then ordered their "Premium 100" kit, I was not happy with the battery life, was charging them between 6 & 8 times a day. I ordered the Apollo extreme kit and have been using it since 12/1/2011, I am very happy with this kit, the only problem was their cartomizers, most of them would only last me roughly 40-50 puffs and then would be empty, once they started offering the refillable carto's I have been filling my own and love it, better flavor and MUCH more vapor.

I can't wait for shipping so, I went ahead a got a starter kit at Wallgreen, .
I am okay with most things in the package; except, I couldn't tell which Flavor is which from the 5 cartridges. I smoked them all, still couldn't tell and it's tasted a bit weird. Can they color coded or something to tell the different flavor?

MinaKaye commented on April 29 2012:
Just received my blue in the mail. Pretty sure all mine taste like coffee as well. I have tobacco and vanilla. I hate coffee, yet they taste like it.

Rick D commented on February 21 2012:
I got the Walgreen starter kit as well, plus a box of what was supposed to be the tobacco flavor. It wasn't - it was coffee. Upon investigation, I found (you have to look pretty closely) that the cartridges were actually marked with the coffee logo. To my admittedly simple mind, that adds up to fouled-up and deceptive packaging.

Hessteria commented on February 19 2012:
I have the Walgreens starter pack too. All five cartridges taste the same. I can't wait for my order to come so I can see what they are really supposed to taste like. Mine all taste like cherry, and my friend who got the starter pack said hers all tasted like coffee. Maybe they should pack these different if they are going to sit on the shelf for a while. I love my Blu!

bluCRM commented on February 03 2012:
Kim, on the side of each cart, near the brass threads, is a logo and a strength. It will have a "H,M,L, or N" to describe the level of nicotine. (high 16mg, medium 12mg, low 8 mg, and non 0mg.There will also be a small image to tell which flavor. Menthol has a leaf, tobacco a pipe, cherry a cherry, etc.

I just received my starter kit and liked the way the kit looked overall, but I wasn't quite sure how to use them. I did not see a users guide or any other information about how to get started. I tried one ecig but it didn't seem to work so I tried another. I was about ready to give up and call them defective when someone told me they weren't fully charged. I charged them for several hours and tried them again. They are heavier than regular cigarettes,so I have to keep a hold of them with my lips. I can't just put one in my mouth and walk around with it; I have to take it out after each puff. Not bad, I just need to get used to it. The taste is good. I got the Classic tobacco in Light. Very similar to my Parliment Lights. These arrived about 5 days after I ordered them. The starter pack seems more expensive than it needs to ... View full review

I am only giving two stars and they are for the cartridges only. The batteries are the worst! I initially bought the Premium 100 starter pack, right off the bat one battery wouldn't hold a charge. I returned it but they have never received it... So I ordered the Premium starter pack and an extra battery with it. They were great, even lasted longer than my 100's batteries...until two of them went totally black and wouldn't work at all the very moment I took them off of the USB charger. So that left me with one premium battery and one premium 100 battery out of five batteries. I have sent back the other three but haven't heard a word about my replacements yet, and now tonight...the two batteries I had left are doing the same thing.

Everythign you just explained happened to me. I am so dissapointed after a total of 100.00 including the disposables, the starter kit an new cartridges. Makes me want to go by a pack of cigarettes now I'm so frustrated. I was doing well for 2 weeks.

Kenny Anderson commented on January 29 2012:
I started using Blu when I saw it in my local Walgreens, I bought the disposable classic tobacco and loved the taste. Went to Blu's web site and bought my wife and I the premium starter kits. It took a while for us to get them (about 14 days). Once they came in the product was very nice and seemed to work well, about 20 drags in to the first cartomizer it was already starting to loose taste and vapor was getting weak. So I replaced the cartomizer with a new one, it seems that there is no consistency with the juice in each cartomizer. I also am very upset about the battery life I get, I am an ex pack-a-day smoker and Blu has not meet my needs. I am looking to switch to prosmoke, I wish I had done more research.

First off, I am totally new to e-cigs, so I'm not talking from much experience. I've had my blu for about two weeks and have used it quite a bit. But as a newbie, overall I find blus to be probably an ok product. I am an occasional smoker (once a week). I smoke for the relaxing feeling I get from the nicotine, but I HATE what I was doing to my lungs with traditional cigs. With E-cigs, I thought you can have your cake and eat it too.

I ordered the orginal blu starter pack along with the menthol and tobacco flavors with the light nicotine (12mg). The standby battery life is about a few days for me.

One thing that I did not like about blus was that if you take too many puffs consecutively, the cartridge would start to get hot and warm the vapor that was coming out of it. I'm not sure if this is true of ALL e-cigs or just ... View full review

After reading many reviews I chose the blu company for my first e cig purchase. So far I am really pleased. I decided that my lungs at 31 were just not going to keep going much longer if I didn't quit smoking 2 packs a day. I've been smoking on the blu now for about a full week. It satisfies just enough to keep me from running to the store.

I ordered the Premium starter kit with the Magnificent Menthol cartridges and also ordered Vanilla and the Peach Schnapps packs as well. Five stars on the flavor for Menthol. Vanilla is a little weak but the flavor is still really good. The Peach Schnapps just isn't my thing and makes me cough. I have since ordered 4 more packs of cartridges and got them today. I got another menthol of course, but I also ordered Cherry, Pina Colada, and Tobacco.

I will post another review on ... View full review

Kathy commented on January 30 2012:
Mag Menthol is number one for me. It seems to produce the longest vapor time and the most vapor per cartridge. Vivid Vanilla is also a fav of mine. So much so that I have other available flavors but ran out of the Vanilla and am craving this flavor and may go check to see if Walgreens carries th cartridges instead of ordering online and waiting. **** Peach Schnapps the flavor is a bit off but for me it usually produces a decent and harder hitting vapor. It took me a long time to get used to this flavor. At first it was just gross. Classic Tobacco doesn't seen to have much of a taste. It's not tobacco flavored to me. The flavoring is pretty weak. I'm smoking this one more often just to get rid of it. Pina Colada is just ok. It's coconut but then at the same time that off flavor of vaping and heating up the cartridge competes with this flavor. Cherry doesn't taste like cherry but more like cough syrup. It's kinda gross. I was hoping for more of a fresher fruit taste, but it was more like a cherry robitussin cordial. *** I would recomend sticking to just the Menthol and the Vanilla. However, I do hear that the Java is supposed to be pretty good as far as FBook fans on the blu page are concerned. After my tries with most of blus flavors, I'm not going to spend another $12 to see if that flavor is as yukky as the others. I'm sticking only with Vanilla and Menthol. *** One more thing about the Vanilla... I get a lot of comments from the non smokers in my family that they are more then happy for me to smoke in their homes/cars because they like the vanilla smell. The other cartridges dont seem to give off as good of a smell.

I got the blus Premium pack . When it comes to performance I was really unsatisfied by the life of batteries and cartridges. Sure you have the spare in the rechargeable pack and can switch back and forth but after a while that becomes a bit tedious. The claim that each cartridge amounts to that of a full pack and a half of regular cigs is some what offensive actually. At most each cartridge lasts the amount of 4-5 regular cigs (I even doubt that) and I got the premium 100 carts which claims to give you 320 puffs!("depending on the user") Not even close! Each pack of carts is about 13$ and brings 5 carts which should equal in theory to 7.5 packs of regular cigs - around 50$ (don't forget I got the Premium 100's). What I am really spending at 4 cigs per cart x5 carts = 20 cigs for one box = a full pack for 13$. I have ... View full review

Bob commented on February 01 2012:
That's funny, I'm still on my first cartridge after receiving the blue premium kit and in my opinion, you couldn't be more inaccurate. I take about 12 long drags each time I use it and as of an hour ago I used it for the 17th time, which is 3 short of a real pack. Your problem is probably not the cartridge, but the batter... After every 4-5 uses I swap batteries and it makes a world of difference, so the chances are that you are wasting cartrdiges for no reason. So far this product has been excellent, 3 days owned.

bigk commented on January 30 2012:
All e-cigs claim 250-500 puffs. I guess they base it on 1-2 sec puffs?? Taking a full drag off of one must equal 10 puffs?? That's the way I see it!!!

I bought the Blu starter kit for my husband for Christmas. This man has smoked for 35 years and has tried everything - patches, gum, Chantix - nothing worked. His mother died last year from smoking, after being on oxygen for several years. She still smoked right up until the end. Too bad these weren't out in time to save her! It took my husband two weeks of using the ecig before he gave up the Newport's completely, but I am happy to say that he smoked his last one of those on New Years Eve! I can't even begin to tell you how happy that makes me! :) It'll be two weeks tomorrow and this is the longest he's ever made it so far!

I quit 7 years ago on Super Bowl Sunday and just out of curiosity, I had to take a puff when the starter kit arrived. I could not believe how real it tasted. I nearly coughed my head ... View full review

I got the buy one get free deal, so price was awesome. As soon as I got the box, opened it up and start puffing it. At first, It had a little bit of vanilla flavor from regular tobacco cartridge.
After charging the battery, once you start smokin away, you can recharge without using the power cord which comes in very handy while I am at work. All I have to do is screw it into the box, and it charged back up in the box (Back up power)
It is NICE to be able to smoke blu while it's pouring rain outside because I don't have to roll my window down anymore~ Yeah.
SO FAR LOVING IT!

I'm actually really happy with my blu so far, BUT I did a ton of research so I knew what to expect and what not to expect.

I learned from my research that if you want your e-cig to look exactly like an analog cig, it's going to have adequate, but not great, vapor and battery life. That's just the limitations of a tiny battery. If you want great vapor and battery life, it's not going to look like a cigarette...it's gonna look like a big, chunky pen or screwdriver or whatever.
Knowing I wanted both, I bought two entry-level kits...an ego-t to use at home for great vapor and battery life and the original blu kit for when I leave the house.

First of all, if you're buying the original starter kit and you're near a Walgreens, that kit is cheaper there than from the blu website. Walgreens is selling the kit in Chicago ... View full review

I received my blu original starter kit a couple of weeks ago. I got in on the buy 1, get 1 free. For the price, I thought it was the best deal out there before Christmas. I planned on giving away the other starter kit to help a friend quit smoking but the battery life is not good, so I might keep it just so I have 4 batteries! Vapor output is pretty good and flaovrs are decent... I am really concerned about the cost of cartridges in the future. Does not look like you can use your own juice w/ this brand... If you are going w/ blu, the Premium starter pack is probably the way to go w/ the improved charging pack

bluCRM commented on January 05 2012:
Deb, you are free to do with your used carts as you will. The atomizer in our carts is designed for single use this is why we dont recommend refilling blu carts. As for voiding the warranty, you are correct. Refilled carts tend to leak and batteries that are suspect of tampering are not exchanged. We do our best to accommodate customers, but if you decide to modify, please do so at your own risk.

debb commented on January 04 2012:
Even though the company says you can't refill their cartomizers, you can. I've had blu since June 2011 and all you have to do is take a paper clip and pull the platic ring out/off the end you puff from; then drop a few drops of ur favorite smoke juice be carefull not to overfill or get any in the center ring. Blu knows their cartomizers can and are refilled they just choose to say they can't so there are more cartomizers sold from them. I personally feel that's an injustice to the people who buy from them. Refilling saves money plus it saves on so many being thrown away...They are the only company i've done business with that says it voids the warranty if you refill your carts but really how will they know if you do! Their batteries are the worst anyway!

I first started out with the disposable blu after a few puffs I decided I would buy the starter kit they sell at Walgreens. Initially I wasn't as satisfied as I was with the disposable. It didn't produce quite as much vapor or have as good of a throat hit. It seemed to be hit or miss on how much vapor you would get. But after some practice I could get some what consistent hits from it. The only problem is that some of the cartridges seem to burn out sooner then others leaving you with little vapor and a burnt taste. I than began experimenting with refilling the cartridges. You can stick the end of a fork in to the mouth opening, pop the top off and remove the little inner plastic ring, then you can refill it with any e-liquid you desire. I got much better results this way, especially one with a higher nicotine percentage ... View full review

I just received my blu starter kit and I love it! I tried a friend's which prompted me to get a pack of my own. It's so easy to use and very satisfying, plus it's great to not have to go out in the cold to smoke in the winter! I am really excited to start trying different flavors. I haven't tried any e-cigarette brands besides blu so I can't make a comparison between them, but I have to say that the features of blu have got to be the best! The pack charges your e-cig all day long while you're not using it and then it's ready to go! It comes with 2 batteries too, so if one needs charging you can use the other one, or put different flavors with each. Excellent purchase!

batteries will not hold charge very long, charger pack seems who knows but the wall charger was made cheap and does not function very well, sometimes on sometimes off. dont have the time to baby sit it......customer service exceptional with the exception of a customer service agent...wanted to know "what do you want me to do about it"....thought this was poor customer service. now i have blus that dont work well and no real cigs in the house or vehicle, so do without and probably punch someone in the nose. depended on this product and have been let down by all of them.....

bluCRM commented on December 19 2011:
Claudette, First off, i want to apologize for the comment made by the CSR. They are there to help, but should not have spoken to you that way. Secondly, our batteries are the smallest in the industry to better mimic the size and feel of a traditional cigarette. And so, being small, the life is limited. This is why we provide two with our starter kits so you can always have one charging or waiting to be used. Please take advantage of our 1 year warranty and let us replace your products if they seem to not be working properly.

I received my blu Premium 100 starter pack a couple of days ago and I just have to say WOW. I love this product. I started smoking the disposables about a month back and have not touched an analog cig since (I was about a pack and a half a day smoker) Battery life seems pretty decent to me, and I always have a spare charging in the handy charging unit, which also holds my extra carts. The flavor is amazing as well as the vapor output. I have to be honest; I tried another brand that got rave reviews on this site and I had to send it back within minutes after receiving since it tasted bad, hardly had any vapor and I could go on and on. For me, Blu rocks and has saved me from smoking.

After trying both the original and menthol flavored disposable blus and made the jump and ordered the original starter kit and menthol cartridges. I received them about six days later after my initial battery and charging case charging I started to use my blu after trying the disposables the first drag i took on my new Blu was a surprise the vapor was much different, it was warm and very very tasteful amazing vapor. I found taking steady two to three second drags produced constant great nicotine delivery along with great vapor and taste. Cartridges are lasting me about a a day and a half or so i would have liked to get a bit more out of them. Battery life however was a little disappointing although i only used them during my breaks at work which consist of two 15 min breaks and a 1 hour lunch as well as my 3-4 minute walk ...

I have the original non-premium starter kit; my experience with this kit was problem free until about 3 months of on and off usage. I believe I have over-charged the batteries several times too many and have semi-ruined their original quality. I do not however, think that this is a fault of the blu itself,rather my own. As a product overall, I am extremely satisfied with what I have received; I have tried all of the flavors; each is unique and satisfying. Now that my batteries are slowing, I was considering buying replacements,but more likely than not, I am going to upgrade to the premiums. Though I am concerned about the premium100's because I truly appreciate the realistic size and weight of the original design. So I will probably stick with the regular premiums.

Jesse P commented on February 13 2012:
Hey just a heads up. The premium 100s are approximately the same size as a 100 cig, (slightly longer than the premium and slightly rounder). Ive been looking into them as my next purchase. If their claims of length for cartomizer and battery duration then it seems to be a clear choice. oh and they have the dimensions of the packs themselves posted on their site. that helped me a lot as i too like the traditional size.

I have purchased 2 starter kits since I usually lose small things. In addition, I ordered two extra battery components. The vapor is very strong at the first few puffs, but then diminishes. The battery does not last long at all and I find them not to recharge very well. I do like the carrypack, however, the battery life is very frustrating and makes me tempted to try another brand. They do however, have lightning delivery, but need to improve on the batteries big time.

bluCRM commented on November 21 2011:
Linda, I am sorry you seem to be having issues with your batteries. It is very important to charge them completely before the first use, same goes with the charging pack. WE did however design our batteries a little smaller than most brands to better mimic the size and weight of a traditional cigarette. To compensate for a little shorter life, we provide two batteries in the starter kits so while one is in use the other can be charging. If you think you are having issues above and beyond what seems normal, please call our customer service and we will do everything we can to get you a properly working pack and batteries.

I received blu 2 days back. It is working as I expected. First few hits fill different but then I start getting use to it. I was skeptical at first to try the whole ecig scene but i did my research and came across Blu.
I was fixated on getting the most usage out of a single cigarette, even smoking at times all the way down to the filter, making the most out of my investment. Disgusting, I know! But with Blu, I am realizing that my satiation and craving only lasts through the first two or three drags, and I am thus satisfied for a good period of time thereafter. In closing, I feel I have openly made the well-needed switch that I have been unconsciously waiting for, in which I can enjoy my routine without negatively affecting others' health, as well as my own.

When Walgreens started selling the bluarette disposable, I decided to give it a try, just to see if I'd like it. They're about $8 for each disposable, so you wouldn't want to continue that way, but it's a great way to try them. I couldn't have been more pleased. The taste was subtle, but the satisfaction is everything you'd expect from a cigarette. Plus, you can set it down whereever you like, no ashtray neede, smoke in your car without even rolling down the window, even smoke in an airline restoom (or aircraft, for that matter!) without fear of setting off the fire alarm! Not all e cigarettes are equal. Since trying Blu, I tried a cheaper brand and found it hardly expelled any 'smoke'. Others are just too hard to use.

I had been trying the disposable blus before I decided to go full bore and get the
blu premium 100 starter pack with full flavor menthol. I have been using it for about a week now and I am completely satisfied with the purchase so far. I was never a heavy smoker to begin with so battery life was never a factor. I was surprised at the amount of smoke and taste.Much better than the disposable. This is going to be the only thing I use till I quit for good.

Blu in the past had quite a bad reputation for shipping times, but this was mostly a relic of their initial popularity.
However my order was shipped via streamlite and the speed was phenomenal. I ordered late Friday (5-6pm) which by any normal expectation would be after business hours and it'd ship the following monday. However They actually started shipping from North Carolina! to California at 10pm that night. Mind you this was shipping from coast to coast, over a weekend. After leaving NC at 1 in the morning on Saturday, it arrived in LA at 8am on Monday -the USPS system took until Tuesday to actually make it the last few miles but still - if you count business days that's basically overnight for free.

My dad has been using this product since not very long but few days and he is very pleased not only with the product but also the customer service. He was very excited about the idea about quitting smoking when I had initially introduced this concept to him, but after he used blus he is more than satisfied with the overall experience. He not only likes the taste but also doesn't crave for the required nicotine anymore. I would say this is one of the best decision he has taken in his life not only to move to e-smoking but also to one of the best brands blus. The only thing I would like to mention here is about the cost. Maybe the starter kit would have been a little cheaper or could have been bundled with another 5 pack of cigs at a cheaper price to provide the best value. But overall excellent product!!!!

I used blu to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes and it has worked beautifully. I buy the non-nicotene cherry cartridges and love the flavor. When I first purchased the starter kit some time ago, I was disappointed with the vapor volume.

It seems that most of the positive reviews of this product may be submitted because there's a "dangling carrot" of $10 to submit a review. This product may be sufficient for someone who has never smoked before and wants to get involved with nicotine; but for someone who has been smoking tobacco cigarettes for over 45 years, I'm sorry, this product will not be satisfactory. There is not enough vapor to get the "hit" needed without multiple and successive drags - which then puts the battery in a bind, I really got tired of charging batteries over and over during the day - and the sad part is one battery hasn't finished charging when the one being used craps out....pufthhhhhh !

Lester, We appreciate your input and are truly sorry that the batteries didn't stand up to your level of vaping. The batteries are small to mimic a traditional cigarette.

After research, I decided to purchase a blu Premium starter kit for two reasons: I found on the blu website that a local pharmacy carried their products so I could try a disposable before purchasing the kit, and I liked the idea of their pack being able to recharge the spare battery.

I did purchase a disposable and found the amount of vapor and throat hit acceptable and that I liked the flavor of their Classic Tobacco. I ordered a Premium blu Starter Kit vs Original because it had features that made it easier to track battery status. I had no interest in the social feature, so it didn't factor into my decision.

Shipping was prompt. I ordered Thursday evening and it arrived on Monday. I found that the ecigs in the kit were MUCH smaller than the disposables.

I charged the batteries and pack and immediately ... View full review

Update to my earlier review: I did return my starter pack. Four days later I received an email from Blu stating they would refund my credit card. Three days later, the credit was posted. Thumbs up for customer service!

I do not know why people have been rating this product so highly. After receiving my product today, I almost instantly realized that the quality of the product should be graded "poor, at best". I purchased the Orig. started kit, and eight different packs of cartridges. Not only did my cigarette(s) refuse to hold a charge, but the cartridges were lacking in flavor, strength and SMOKE! After only a few puffs (no were near the stated "220"), my cartridge was dead. Also, because the flavor was so weak, I was forced to take longer puffs, which produced an almost unbearably hot tip (where I smoke from) on the cigarette. After calling customer assistance, they informed me that I may not be smoking the blu correctly. Being of sound mind and body, and a competent person, it was insulting to be told that maybe I just didn't know what ... View full review

This is a very over rated product, I've had it a week now and not only the batteries no where what they advertise the disposable tips don't even close to the advertised longevity, Total false advertising, I'm sending it back and I'm going to try the premium just to see if it's any better on the battery end but, they say the tips are basically a pack :) no freaking way half at best. How is this not false advertising the website only shows rated reviews with four stars and above I put two or three three and two and still not showing up :)

nice, small, compact and works great. blows big clouds of smoke. alot of people tell me it smells like cotton candy. i love vanilla, menthol is great for the first few puffs, and regular tastes like mocha.

Took four days to receive my order. Very sleek pack design and quite portable. Always having an extra battery is nice if you plan on using your cig often. I don't smoke often so the batteries last about two days per charge for me. i would not carry this loose in your pocket, the air pressure switch is activated when sliding around in jeans pocket and gets hot against you leg. This simply burns up the cartomizer. The pack charges batteries in about thirty to forty five minutes. i found that slow puling puffs is the best way to get the most vapor. The menthol cartomizers seem to have a hint of chocolate flavor. be careful to not drop a battery in the spot in the pack where an assembled cig goes, it is quite difficult to get back out. I am happy with my blu.

I used the cigs the day that I received them. They came very quickly. I charged them according to instructions although I did not see a red light which their instructions mentioned. I stopped smoking regular cigs the next day. I had a problem with the nicotene dosage, though I can't blame them for that. I ordered the full strength ones. I found that I only needed to use them about one fourth the amount of time I would have spent smoking regular cigs. I even got headaches from the nicotene. I recommend getting something less if your a ******* light smoker like I used to be. The second cartridge did not produce any vapor but the third did. I intend to email them about that.

I purchased the starter kit and have been using it for about a week now. While I did not expect these to be "just like a real cigarette," I find the most unsatisfying thing is the lack of 'kick' in the back of the throat on an inhale. The battery could last longer but that hasn't been an issue because of the charger pack. Overall I am happy with it but I will keep my eyes open for a better one on the market.

I purchased a BLU disposable that I thought was a very attractive looking cig. sub. alternative. I bought menthol, although I thought I could taste a hint of chocolate. I was satisfied, so the same day I bought the kit. One of the flavors that was included in the kit only worked for two quick puffs and would not start again, that flavor was the java jolt. I was disappointed that the look was not the same as the disposable. The disposable was longer which doesn't matter, but the ring connecting the battery to the cartridge and also the logo word "blu" were both silver, which looked awsome on the black e-cig. The ones in the kit have a small gold ring and the logo is white. It's deceiving, because you expect the kit to look like the sample. Oh well looks aren't everything, the important thing is if they do the job. Time will ... View full review

I smoked since I was 15yrs old, I recently turned 31 and I am having my first child so I really wanted to quit smoking and I had a great reason. Quitting cold turkey is just stupid plus many of my friends smoke, I do like the social aspect and I enjoy smoking(I just dont want the risk of cancer, emphysema, smelling and tasting like an ashtray, etc)so I looked into e-cigs, I read many reviews and decided on blus for a couple reasons. First, I loved the idea of the cigarette pack also being a portable charger that re-charges my cigs on the go, no one else does that. Second, the nicotine juice is made in the USA from better quality products versus the industry standard with propylene glycol. When I got the traditional tobacco flavor, it took some getting used to because it does not taste like a cigarette but its really ... View full review

I purchased the black starter kit menthol flavor and Im loving it. I waited about a week to recieve order but it was worth it...I am a regular smoker and since i have been using these e-cigs i havent smoked a regular cig since. My lungs have been clearing up, no cough or tightness in lungs in morning. The carry case is stylish and charging on the go is very usefull. the fact you can use these almost anywhere is great. I no longer smell like smoke on fingers or breath. I am going to continue to use blu-cig and try the other flavors. Menthol is smooth and taste great...The refills last a good amount of time also...battery life is good..I been charging the battery two times for each refill, pretty good. I recommend this brand and product

I have been using my Blu starter kit exclusively for about a month and I have reserved final judgment until now. The verdict: I love my Blu!!!
The good:
Look and Feel - The Blu feels more like a real cigarette than any other e-cig I have tried. The black battery looks sleek, and the blue light definitely lets others know that this is something new and innovative.
Two-piece design - Cartomizers are fantastic and last all day, and this is definitely the future of e-cigs.
USA Made Smoke Juice - Love the flavors that are offered, and the fact that they are not made in China, but here in the USA. Amount of vapor is amazing!
PCC - This brings the whole experience together. It looks and feels like a real cig pack, and holds 5 cartomizers plus 2 batteries so you have everything you need in one place. You can charge your e-cig ... View full review

Overall, this blu is a great value. The hardware is sturdy, and the charges aren't long at all! I would definitely recommend the java flavor as opposed to the others, but I am a coffee freak! Great value, if you have been thinking about purchasing one, let this review let you know that you should act on those thoughts asap!

I used to use snuff and smoke occasionally. The girlfriend did not like either, so I did my due diligence and chose the e-cigarette from Blu. It is a great product and I have not used any type of tobacco product since my purchase. I have started whitening my teeth and overall I feel better. It is convenient and trendy at the same time. Thanks for a great product.

I received my blu (the starter kit and Menthol catridges) several days ago and let me tell you - what a difference it has already made. Going from smoking a pack of cigarettes a day to only 3 per day is amazing! The ease and convenience of using blus make kicking the habit of smoking so much easier. Also they can be used in non smoking areas, which is nicer for everyone. I know eventually cigarette smoking will be a thing of the past but blus beats nicotine patches hands down. Awesome product!!

I was a cigarette smoker for 50 years, tried to quit more times than I want to say..I knew I had to quit, but felt I was facing a brick wall.. I went online and researched all the ecigs I could find..Decided on Blu, I smoked my last cigarette 15 days ago, It was funny my cigs were gone and my Blu arrived just as I was going to buy another real pack...Well I charged them up, which did not take long as they come partially charged, and they did the trick, wish the cart lasted a little longer and the battery life is a little short, but the flavor and satisfaction is WONDERFUL.. I love them....Already gave 3 referrals and they got theirs too!!

This is a great deal. I am totally pleased with mine and have not touched a "real" cigarette since the day I got the Blu. I am especially pleased with the fact Blu's "smoke juice" is made here in the United States, which means it's subject to manufacturing standards. Good amount of vapor, decent battery life, and the charger pack is really convenient. I love my Blue!

Overall I think the blu rocks. No stinky smoke or residual for me or anyone around. It is not repulsive like cigarettes. I had an issue with box not holdinga charge, they quickly sent a new one to replace it. The tobacco flavor is great.The amount of vapor is minimum. Can use it in the house without anyone saying anything. I haven't missed smoking since I have the blu, nor do I have a craving for one. The cigarette does need to hold the charge longer, the only flaw I can find. It dies very quickly. Customer service was very helpful and walked me through checking the box before the decision was made, "faulty box". Cost and value is good.

I have started to use blus last month. I have been a chain smoker for over 14 years but due to the doctor's restrictions, am not allowed to have any of the traditional cigarettes. When I heard about the blus; I instantly know that I found an alternate.

The thing I like about blus the most, apart than the health issue, is that I can smoke it anywhere! Plus it is cheap and does not require a lighter or an ash tray. What more could I ask for?

I really enjoy the Blu electric cigarettes, the taste is fantastic, and it looks very sophisticated, and I realy enjoy being able to smoke in a restaurant without bothering anybody, it's better than having to go outside.
Also I have a home business, and many buyers were complaining about the items smelling like smoke, now I no longer have that problem, I can have my cake, and eat it too, you go Blu... August

Overall the vaper amount and taste is OK, but the battery life really sucks. It is a five to six change a day deal. If you really vape hard, you can draw one of these bats down in 30 minutes.
blu needs to get some of the extra long manual battery like other brands offer.
Good starter cig, but not long term keeper.

Eddie, We understand that for some serious vapers, batteries can get used quickly. They are small batteries, this is to better mimic the size of an actual analog. You will be happy to hear that we are very close to the release of our new Premium 100's. Larger battery with a lot more life!
