|Al from Houston, TX reviewed Blu Cigs Disposable model 'Blu Starter Pack from HEB' on October 21 2011:|
OverallPurchased a disposable from Walgreens - taste was marginal at best - almost stale compared to a friends "roll-your-own" e-cig solution. When I got back to my side of town, I went to HEB and purchased a starter kit (they didn't have the "new" starter kit in stock, so I'm stuck with the fidgety "screw the battery into its slot" case.
Value vs. Cost
The starter kit came with a sampler of 4 of their flavors (vanilla was not included and was the one I most wanted to try - boo). I ordered a 5 pack of vanilla from Blu's website - it hasn't arrived yet.
Meanwhile my battery life is HORRIBLE - the start kit came with 2 batteries and whether they're charged from a fully charged pack battery or the USB charger (hooked to a myriad of sources) I can (barely) get through what I'd consider 2 cigarettes before they start blinking and demand a recharge again.
I ordered their new and improved starter kit from the website, but I'm definitely disappointed with my first impression. Once that new starter kit gits here, I'll call their customer service and see about getting both defective batteries replaced.

you do realise that they will also blink if you overheat the batteries by chainsmoking them, right?
