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

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 :)

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

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

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!

The e-cigg itself is wonderful, has a nice amount of vapor and is light and comfortable to hold. The battery life is very short, however, so make sure to have the charger or back-up battery with you. I was terribly dissatisfied with the customer service with the company. They sent me the wrong flavor with the starter kit (coffee instead of tobacco...YUCK) and refused to acknowledge their fault. I have sent them several complaints and requests for the correct flavor and they ignored my complaints. Its a nice product but their customer service is awful and not worth even dealing with.

I recently purchased Blu with Classic Tobacco, Cherry Crush, and Magnificent Menthol cartomizers. I am really pleased with the product overall. I was a 25 year Marlboro smoker. I have not touched a real cigarette since receiving my Blu. The Classic Tobacco flavor does not taste like a real cigarette, but I was able to deal with it and after a day or two actually started liking it. A lot. After I got over the initial sore throat from using (maybe over-using) this product, I feel safe in saying that I will not go back to regular cigarettes. The Classic Tobacco flavor has a bit of a vanilla tone to it in my opinion. I do not taste any hint of a tobacco flavor in it at all. I wasn't really pleased with the Magnificent Menthol flavor at all as it did not produce much vapor. The Cherry Crush had a bit of a cough syrup ... View full review

I've had my blu for 10 days now and so far, I love it. I have had exactly 4 analog cigarettes since last Wednesday. This is the first ecig that I have ever purchased.

I had some issues with the battery life, and was told my customer service that the battery will actually begin to deplete if you leave it plugged in longer than the 1/2 hour or so that it takes to charge, and not to leave the battery plugged in to the pack when you're charging it. I had charged both overnight the day that I had the battery problem. Now that I unscrew the battery immediately it lasts about 1/2 a day and I immediately put it in the charging pack so I always have one charged.

I only went through two cartridges in the first 8 days - at this rate, I'm saving about 4.50 a day, not to mention my health. In 6 more days the blu will have paid for ... View full review

I bought the blu about a year ago when the cartridge was in 2 parts, I hated it. There was hardly any vapor. I was bummed because I really wanted to switch from regular cigarettes to the electronic cigarettes. Then about a month ago I saw where the cartridge was all one piece. I ordered a pack in classic tobacco in Light, Vanilla in Light and Cherry in Light. I must say I was so very impressed and now actually prefer my blu to a regular cigarette. My favorite by far is the Cherry. My only complaint is the battery life, it is terrible. I am not a heavy smoker type or one that takes long hard drags. Even so the battery drains in about 2.5 hours. I bought a extra battery and now keep 2 charged at all times. It is nice you can charge in the pack and on your laptop, I also use the usb charger with a adapter in my car outlet. It ...

I should first start with my history in regards to smoking in general aswell as my introduction into electric cigarettes. I have smoked cigarettes, but do not smoke them regularly, or have ever owned a pack unless they were clove cigarettes or cigars. My introduction into electric cigarettes start with the cheap and easily accessible greensmoke. I did not like greensmoke, but liked the idea of the electric cigarette. The specific reason I did not enjoy the greensmoke was because of its chemically after taste.

There after I began my search for an effective, planned, and chemically monitered version of the greensmoke. I immediatelly fell upon this bluarette, and have no regrets or remorse for my buy.

I have been using Blu for over 2 months now and I have to say, I absolutely love it. The vapor is great, and so is the flavor... all except Java Jolt, which to me tastes like burnt coffee. The ONLY downside I have found is that the batteries only last about 3 hours before needing a charge... but I have 3 batteries now so it doesn't really affect me. Even with the short battery life, Blu is still #1 to me. I've got 2 other ecig brands with longer battery life and I still always reach for my Blu, based on flavor and vapor!!!!

I did try this brand first when I was introduced to it by a friend because I have tried to quite smoking so many times but I love it. I know it's bad for me, as does everyone who smokes, but the addiction is the clincher. Anyway, I tried the old model with the pack and 3 part system. I did like it, it was not as close to real smoke as I had hoped and did not stop smoking. I tried to smoke only that for a while, but it didn't last. I have since tried another brand when I noticed they had the 2 part system with the atomizer and flavor cartridge combined and I like it better. I am tempted to try this brand again because of the convienent chargable pack, but I have spent a lot of money trying this and have yet to stop smoking.

I was introduced to this about a 2 months ago and can't get enough. One of my biggest complaints, and I suppose some people truly enjoy this, but the light at the end of the electronic cigarette is quite annoying. It is very obnoxious and attracts a lot of unwanted attention. I used flat black spray paint to conceal mine better (I purchased the black colored Blu electronic cigarette). Beyond that, the vaporizer effect is awesome. It is like smoking a mini hookah in some ways. One of the things that has kept me from smoking normal cigarettes is the unbearable smell they leave behind. The electronic cigarette doesn't do this and I appreciate that so much. Technically it's a bad thing (because smoking is bad for you), but I can't imagine I'd smoke if it wasn't for Blu electronic cigarettes. I also really like the appearance of ... View full review

I was very skeptical when i first heard of blus or e-cigs for that matter. But when i saw the movie THE TOURIST-- johnny depp smoking an ecig, i started browsing the internet for the best ecig. From NJOY to LOGIC to blus. And by far, blus takes the flag!!! THe amount of vapor it produced, the taste (uh, java volt is revolting-eww gross), and the price.
Nothing Beats blus. I have smoked for 24 years and wanted an alternative to smoking. I have not touched marlboro reds since i bought blus.

After receiving the bluarette, I was ready to finally give up smoking. I really didn't feel like this was a substitute. I did think that there were several pros. The blu has impressive battery life and is very easy to charge with the portable charger. The free shipping makes it extremely easy to order replacements. However, I think the products pros are greatly outweighed by the cons. Despite ordering the strongest cartridges, the nicotine buzz from this ecig doesn't compare to a real cigarette. The cigarette itself is fairly heavy and doesn't look at all like a real cigarette which draws a lot of attention to it. The flavors were okay but the 'real tobacco' flavor tastes NOTHING like real tobacco. The vapor produced by the blu is very thin and requires a drag far beyond a normal cigarette. I was generally ...

I started out with Prado, out of Phoenix, AZ. they proved to be too slow with delivery, and cost double what blu does. Then they tried to charge me for something I didn't order. I've taken care of them, now with blu, the smoke does have a hind of a cigar odor, but isn't bad at all. the price is the best. the delivery time is next.

I just got the Blu starter pack last week, and since then, I have had 4 whole real cigarettes, when I was close to a pack a day. This is easily the best thing to happen to my efforts to quit smoking. The problem with nicotine patches or gum is that they do nothing for the actual cigarette replacement. After a while, you really miss the feel of the cigarette in your hand or your mouth or the "smoke" that you're inhaling and exhaling. Blu is much more effective, because they've realized that being addicted to cigarettes is not just physical, but mental as well. I was a menthol smoker, and the "Magnificent Menthol" flavor is great. It's not over-powering. The vapor packs last a very long time. The first one I used, I used it for an entire weekend.

I ordered the starter kit and have been using it about 3 weeks now. Having tried other ecigs in the past, I will say I really like how small and light the blu is.
I got the black, and I think the black and blue is a really nice touch. I chose cherry and it tastes a bit like chap stick.
I think next time I'll get the menthol or regular tobacco flavor. I will say, when you inhale you cant "feel" the vapor in your mouth like a regular cigarette.
So it takes a bit to get used to how to take a drag to get the right amount for YOU. The battery dies quickly but I like the on the go charging pack.

It's been a week and I can feel my craving for a real cigarettes getting less and less by the day. Over all they are doing their job for the time being. A friend told me about them and he said it's been 3 months since he'd smoked a real cigarette. He has convinced me and my wife to give them a try, and you can't beat it with the 30 day money back. If you want to try to quit or cut back, give blus a try.

My husband and I made a deal if we both can quit together then we can save our money and take a trip to Cabo. We through a friend just started the blus and they are great! Since we got the kit I haven't smoked a real cig in a week. My blu has the perfect amount of vapor smoke and it last for a whole 8 hrs work day. I like that I can recharge it right in the pack anywhere. I don't smell like smoke my breath smells good and I can stop spending all my money on gum, mints, body sprays, just to cover up the smell of a real cigarette. I am going to save a ton of money using the blus.
Thanks blus you might of just saved my life.

My son bought this for me to help me quit smoking. Have owned for one week and have only smoked 4 regular cigarettes since receiving the blu and that was only because I let both batteries run down. The taste is great (normally smoke Doral Lights)and the blu gives off a lot of vapor which makes it seem like I'm smoking a regular cig. The blu is easier to use than others I've seen because you only have to snap the 'butt' onto the battery so there's no messy drops to worry with. The recharge pack is easy for carrying the extra butts and spare battery in and it lasts for a long time once it is fully charged (take the time to fully charge everything before you start using it!)

I'm in my 60's and have smoked since I was 14. I am hoping to be able to fully quit but if not then the blu is something my wife can live with. She ... View full review

I decided I was tired of being a smoker and having to go outside to get my nicotine fix, not being able to smoke in certain rooms in my house when I have company over, and all the other problems associated with it (Cost, health, smell, etc). I bought the Blu starter kit and a few packs to go with it. After just 2 full days using it, I went from one pack to just one cigarette a day. The 2 batteries last long enough to get me through work, which is generally about 50 minutes outside smoking, before they both need recharged. The recharging pack left me with no worries about running out at work or anywhere else I go for several hours at a time. The vapor cloud is very close to what I got smoking Marlboro 100's, while the hit is close to that of a light. For how I smoke, I'm getting roughly one cart equal to one pack of ...

I'm a huge fan of the bluarette! At a huge cost savings compared to regular cigarettes, the hugest benefit still is in the savings to health. Smoke-free, and with two batteries, I always have a charged battery in my blu pack. I recommend this e-cig to everyone I meet!

I bought this 2 weeks ago.And it sucks big time.The batteries you got to charge every hour.The flavor in the cartridges does'nt last long and the you get a burnt metal taste.There is no 250 puffs in a cartridge,maybe 30 at the most.Cherry and coffee flavors are just plain awful.YUK.The only one that tastes good is the menthol.All I can say is don't waste $70.00 like I did.

This is the first e-cig I have tried.
Ordered the starter kit on Thursday morning, it arrived in the mail Monday. At first they seem to work great, but there is no 250 puffs in there. After 20-30 puffs they start to taste wierd and vapor production is decreased. I prefer the menthol and cherry flavors. If I puffed a cigarette the way you have to puff the blu for vapor, I would be done in about 2 drags.
The battery life is questionable, it seems like you are constantly charging something, mostly the cig batteries. They work good after a fresh charge, but I think I will need extras to keep up with the low length of life.
I have decided to try and refill the flavor cartridges myself to save some money and see what all is out there. I ordered a sample kit from Johnson Creek.
I really like the product, but the performance ... View full review

Sherri commented on April 13 2011:
Hey David......I have an issue with the flavor choices and left the comment immediately preceding yours. I wanted to alert you that it may void your warranty if you refill them yourself with other e-liquid. I have read that you are only permitted to use their cartridges. I may return mine and order another brand e cig with more choices. Smoke Tip has great reviews. I have a friend who has used that brand for over a year and they have numerous flavor choices. I understand that these companies want to sell cartridges as that is where the money is, but they need to offer adequate flavors options so we don't feel the need to refill them with other e-liquid. If they don't want to offer more flavors......let us refill!

One word Life SAVER!! Ok, that was two words but I must say, life could not be more grand now using the blu full time... I'm confident this will change the tobacco industry for ever! Smoke in the bars (people will come up to you by the froves!), resterants, supermarkets, anybody cars, dorms, the possibilites are endless. Closet smokers will never have to worry about the smell of disgusting cigeretts EVER again!
I'm sure their will be resistance from the big tobacco companies but sure they will soon enter the new tobacco-less market.
Great product, great flavors, and the batery is long lasting when used correctly.
NOTE: I'm sick of seeing the bad reviews online regarding battery life. As the directions state, if you incorrectly use the battery's from the start, you will have issues. Just like most cell phone ... View full review

I got my starter kit a week ago. I have been a pretty heavy smoker for the last 20 years. I will NEVER smoke a real cigarette again. Why would I, these are so close to the same thing, cheaper, healthier and DONT STINK UP MY LIFE. I am so happy. I am also still on my 2nd cartridge after one week. Love this product!!! I got black so it wouldnt be so obvious. No more crouching around trying to hide from non smokers and get glared at and shunned. I can use it at work, dont have to go out in the cold. Awesome!!!

I have purchased other Ecigs, but once I tried blu, I was impressed by the amount of flavor is in each puff. My batteries last just as long at those other batteries. Depends how many puffs are taken. Yes, I have had to change batteries several times a day, but that was because I puff way too much. I go through one cartridge in about a day and a half. That was my habit with real cigs. It is cheaper than real cigs overall.

I received my blu a few days ago and I am farely happy with it. Before I got it I noticed I was smoking Black and Milds more often than I would like to considering the build of stress in my life. So I decided this had to change because obviously it wasn't healthy. I got my blu and charged both batteries to full before using it. When I open the box the Cherry cartomizers I ordered were very fast to touch my nose. When the batteries where charged I loaded a cartomizer in and went to work. Initially I felt a solid throat hit and was surprised by it, but this seemed to die down a bit. For about the first day and a half I thought the vapor production was sub-par but the flavor was pretty good. By the second day and maybe half way through my first cartomizer I had to change batteries. I am now on my fourth day or so of using the ... View full review

I purchased Blu about 2 weeks ago. I bought one kit, they sent and charged me for 2. I thought I could use juice to refill cartages since Johnson Creek is advertised on their site and they are on Johnson Creek's. Not so. You must buy the disposable cartages with no chance to experience any other flavors or save money.. then what Blu offers. no other blanks will fit their models. Customer service stinks.. wish I would have chosen another brand.. Im now shopping for one. Batter life is also horrible. No wonder they give you a mobile pack to charge with. You need it and the spare just to be able to smoke.

Last year i tried the old blus with the three parts. I really like the flavor of the blus but it was not strong enough. The new improved , two part blus are great! The old blus did not produce enough vapor, and sometimes a nasty tasting liquid would leak in my mouth. When i found out that blus improved their product by having 2 parts and producing more vapor , I was happy to give them another try. The new blus are great! blus have good vapor, nice rechargeable carrying pack, great price, and love the two piece with the atomizer built in to the cartridge. I am glad i do not have to worry about replacing the atomizer. I would recommend the new and improved blus to all my friends.

I received my blu starter kit a few days ago, and I must say I have been pleasantly surprised. I love the charger pack that comes with it, knowing even if I'm away from an outlet or computer for a few days I'll still be able to recharge then batteries. The batteries seem to last most of the day and the cartomizers last a lot longer than I thought they would. I've been doing my research and am very excited to start trying new eliquid flavors. It only took five business days to arrive. Over all, I would definitely recommend Blu products to anyone wanted to give vaping a try.

I bought this super mini ecig about 2 weeks ago and I just love its realistic,small (analog) size. The eliquid is from Johnson creek and tastes great though the VG liquid it comes with does not give as much of a throat hit than the PG. You can buy either through their website. I am very pleased wth all the available flavors and the throat hit is good when the battery is fully charged.I am a heavy vaporer and I found that the batteries only last about an hour probably due to the small size of the ecig. Maybe I'll try new batteries. Overall I give this a 3 due to the great flavor and small size of this ecig

I received my Blu 4 days ago and I love it. I order it with classic tobacco carts and really enjoy there smoothness. This is my first e-cig and i must say I'm very pleased. I will be trying to switch from smoking to vapping. I went from smoking a pack a day to having a pack last me 4 days!!! As for the Blu itself, the only disapointment is the battery life. But, I knew that going in and you have the many options to keep them charged. My only other problem with it is that its hard to find empty carts for it. I just ordered juice for it and I'm gonna try to just drip with what I have. Nice starter kit for its price, but would recommend going with something that you can get empty carts with so you can mix your own juice.

I received our starter kits last night in the mail. We puffed on one for a few minutes prior to charging to a full battery, and we were nicely impressed. It was a little heavy in the hand and front heavy, but we quickly adjusted to it. I tried alternating between a reg. cig and the blu to take the difference. I was amazed that there really wasn't much difference between the two, as far as taste. The blus were smoother, and of course, no smell. I've only tried the classic tabacco, but our next order will include the cherry and java jolt! So far, we consider us repeat customers and have no qualms about sticking with blu and forgetting about reg. cigs!

I Quit Smoking three months ago due to an illness. When I had trouble getting through some rough spots I talked to my son who had purchased the bluarette to help curb his smoking. When I found out you could get them with out the nicotine I felt it would be worth a try to help me get through. It REALLY has helped me, I just use it when I feel the urge, or when I am around other smokers in a social situation, other times I don't even think about it. It has definately helped me to not pick up a real cigarette and start that terrible habit again. But... I was VERY confused when I opened the package as they aparantly changed the style of atomizer since my son purchased his but did not change the instructions.

I thought the blu was so cool, so I ordered the starter kit. Mine did not produce much vapor. I assumed that was how they all were. I just received a different brand, and the vapor is amazing! I think I may have just gotten a defective one, so I am looking into sending it back. The reuseable atomizer might the downfall as well. Hopefully if I choose to give blu another try it will be a better experience just like the promise.

I've been a smoker for more than 13 years, and I've tried every type of smoking cessation aid on the market and nothing has ever helped, blu was not only addicting (in a good way) from drawing me away from real cigarettes, I feel almost no difference in its functions. Definitely recommend!!!
The battery life on Blu is perfect, it's got a wall and USB charger, and so long as you're mindful (like you are with your laptop), you won't have a problem with the battery like other reviewers have claimed. I've never tried the other flavors, but I love the menthol flavor and have never felt the need to switch it up. The one thing I will say about Blu, and about all other e-cigarettes is that even if your state allows e-cigs indoors, be respectful of others around you and smoke outdoors when you can. It's simply not worth the ... View full review

If you want to quit smoking once and for all get an e-cig!!!! With that being said , the Blu is a great one to start off with. Whats nice about the Blu is the price and what you get for your money. It comes with two complete e-cigs. I havent even touched the second one. Im holding off till the one I'm using goes bad, which I hope never does. I also love the charging pack that comes with it. The conveinience factor has helped greatly in helping me quit real cigs. The only down sides to the blu are the battery life, just make sure when your not using it that its charging and ready to go when you do need it. Another thing is the inconsistent vapor hits you get from it. This can be fixed by purchasing e-liquid from a supplier and refilling the cartridges yourself. Other then those two problems the Blu is great and has changed ... View full review

I'll preface this by saying I ordered my blu just as they switched from the separate atomizer cartridge to cartridges that include the atomizer. I've read that better hits are attained through the new design, but I'm happy with the old setup. When I run out of cartridges (blu sent me 42 free cartridges in the starter pack!) I can just order the new design.

I really like the fact that you have a cigarette-like pack that charges the batteries and is convenient to carry around. If I purchased a different e-cig, I'd be afraid of losing it. With the pack, you don't have this problem.

The vapor hits are very smooth, but there is an odd aftertaste after a little while, which is basically when you know it's time to stop, instead of coming to the end of a regular cigarette.

Very clean buzz, and productive. Nicotine helps me ... View full review

I purchased this kit for several reasons: 1) I wanted to be able to smoke in my home (and friends' homes) without the pervasive smell of smoke permeating everything; 2) I wanted to be able to reduce (and possibly eliminate) my traditional tobacco cigarette usage without giving up the effects of nicotine; and 3) I wanted to save money over purchasing traditional tobacco cigarettes. I can honestly say that blus fit the bill on all 3 counts. I was visiting a non-smoking friend, and asked if I could use the blu inside his house. Once I explained how it worked, he agreed, and I was able to "smoke" in his house, which was much more pleasant than having to go outside in sub-freezing winter weather just to have a cigarette. While I have not cut out traditional cigarettes altogether, I have definitely reduced my consumption ... View full review

I bought my girlfriend the blu kit, and she was impressed with it so her mom's sister's boyfriend also decided to get it. He has been smoking less cigarettes and it's only been a week and all half. He decided to go for the full flavor as opposed to the lights my girlfriend got, she will probably switch to the full flavor as well. The full flavor resembles regular cigarettes a lot more, even though she used to smoke lights. She has a battery problem with her kit, but the 1 year warranty on bluarettes is making the process a lot easier. The kit is well constructed and not made of cheap plastic and adhesive.

Delivery was fairly expediant. If you are a heavy smoker, expect to use more than the average amount claimed. Feels different than smoking a regular cigarette but it does satisfy nicotine addiction without as many health risks. Being able to smoke in a public place is a bonus. The batteries die fairly quickly which can be a hinderance while away from home. Definitely take one or two spare batteries if you are going to be out for more than 3 to 4 hours. Overall, I feel this is an excellent way to quit smoking.

Denise Nance commented on January 11 2011:
Overall the product is good. The batteries do die quickly. The product comes with a usb charger and I purchased a cigarette lighter adapter at 7-11 convenience store for the usb charger so I can charge it in the car, the laptop and the blus case. I got the light flavor, and it is perfect for me. I showed it to my doctor today and he thought it was great. my dentist would prefer no nicotine and the product comes in non-nicotine. The e-cig was approved for use during dental implants by my dentist. No nicotine is preferred by dentists but this one he said was ok. Shipping is rather slow on refill cartridges so best to order 2 boxes and its cheaper also. I have had 3 atomizers go out on me and one battery since October. I have to mail them back, It was easier for me to just order and pay for the product and send the defects in for credit later. Battery life is the worst problem but cell phones die and we recharge them too! Such is life. Charge it! The pack works best when fully charged

This is the third person in my family to switch to e-cigarettes and I'm going to talk to my younger sister about doing the same. I've very excited for the opportunity to reduce the amount of money I'll be spending on smoking and that it will be healthier too.
The cigarettes look good and satisfies my cravings. The added benefit of no odor is appreciated by my family. They are so easy to use and maintain. With both the wall charger and USB charger my e-cigarettes are always ready to use. I wish I would have found out about this opportunity a lot sooner.

I got the Blu after a fair amount of research into getting a budget e-cig that wasn't going to fall apart on me. I was hesitant about Blu since there have been issues with customer service and quality control in the past, but it seems like more recently they've been stepping up their game. For example I actually got the starter kit in less than a week (shipped to SoCal). I ordered on a Thurs and received it on the next Tues. Right out of the bag one of the atomizers didn't work. It put off very little vapor and the vapor it did produce tasted like burnt metal. Fortunately the other one worked. The vapor was initially a little light, but after I twisted the cartridge and removed the foil remnant, the vapor came pretty easily. Battery life is pretty short at about 20-30 min of continuous usage, but the portable charger case ... View full review

When I opened the box, charged the batteries and popped on the first vanilla cart, there was little to no vapor, and I actually got liquid on my lips/in my mouth...Smoked/Vaped the next cart for about a day, when I went to change the cart out i noticed the atomizer was literally falling to pieces. That made my mind up to box it back up...just not satisfied with the quality, and would much rather a 2 piece then the 3 piece. What I CAN say good about them, is the shipping was great.

I was so excited to try this that the week I waited for shipping seemed like FOREVER. I got it today and I really, really like it! It produced so much more vapor than the other e-cigarette I tried that it sort of choked me the first couple times but now that I've adjusted for that, it's awesome. And on the subject of e-cigarettes in general, I took mine to a bar where smoking is not allowed. I asked if I could use my e-cig and it was no problem. No one complained, a few were curious.

Dear Fellow Smokers,

First off their wall charger was dead right out of the box and I had to charge with USB on my computer and a week later one of the batterys stopped working. I sent the set back return recipt USPS# 7010-1670-0002-2467-6292 within 30 day guarantee and a week later they have not refunded my money. I called them and they say there working on refund. Save yourselves trouble look elsewhere for e-cig.

I received the Blu starter kit in 7 days. The directions are a bit skecthy. Not sure if I am charging the batteries properly. Maybe I'm a bit slow. Will go over again. I took my first puff/drag. The vapor certainly looked like smoke at first. Then disappeared quickly. I order full nicotine. Full flavor tasted okay. I'll be trying the flavored soon. I smoke flavored cigs now. I hope the flavored blu will be good. Lets see if they stand up to my expectations. I will be submitting another review shortly. As I use Blu more.

Got the blu today, only took 4 days to receive after placing order. Was using another ECig bought locally until it arrived. No comparison, the Blu blows it out of the water. Followed directions and charged everything before using. Battery level is good and vapor is better than the one bought locally. Have been smoking for over 25 years at about a pack a day. Been smoke free since starting ECigs. What a great innovation.

The blu is probably the best priced E - cig out there! The Vapor production is OK with the included blu cartriges. But if you buy smoke juice from Johnson creek smoke juice than the vape is awesome! The battery takes a little over 25 min to charge and it will last 45 minutes when smoking. It gets a Killer throat hit when using JC juice and overall is a good product and is very cheap! The Blu is the E cig to buy. If your looking for a E cig that costs less then $60 than try volcano e cigs. I really love my Blus!

The only thing I like about Blu is the flavor. As for the battery and atomizer is is the worst ecig. If you are a pack a day smoker or more than avoid Blu. After buying NJOY, Blu, Safe Cig, WHite Cloud and a 501 I recommend to those who are going from a pack a day to go directly to either a Joye 510 or the Ego. I now use and love my Totally Wicked Titan Mega and Tornado, both of which are Joye 510 devices.

I am fairly impressed with this product. The cigarette pack charger is awesome and I am never without a well-charged battery. I will say that the black pack is cool looking, but slightly annoying in dark places like bars or the car at night. It is hard to place the ecig smoothly back into the pack on the first try, but it's a mild inconvenience. I got the high dose nicotine cartridges and I am pleased; you get the pull and the ticklish feeling in your throat like a real cig. I'd recommend this!

Had Blu for a week & have not had an analog since. The downside is that I don't seem seem to get a satifying throat hit after the second drag & the battery dies too quick. I am now alternating between 2 blus which somewhat solves the battery issue but it still does not help the fact that I crave consistent throat hits. I still like Blu and believe it could help me quit after 27 yrs of smoking. I have cut back on consumption w/ the ecig. Blu is OK & is way better than analogs!

I have been using Ble a while now. After I found out that the light blinks 5 times when over vaped. Then 20 times when it needed a charging. It worked better. I ordered blue foam which is great for refilling your carts. As for customer service. They are always there when I needed them. I never had a problem. Smoke away. It is a great product. Plus all the replacements are only 10 dollars. Such a deal.

Don't bother trying UNLESS you are a UNDER 5 a day smoker. Being that I'm a 25 a day smoker, this would never work out. Tried for an hour or two of just consistant sucking. Then battery died. Not enough nicotine in the cartriges either, and I bought the 16Mg ones..
Also bought Green smoke kit. Much better as someone said eariler. Battery will last for about half a days worth, but charges much slower. They are better but.. $$$!! I feel I will need about two cartg a day and that's $6!!

I'm not an super addicted smoker, but a social smoker and lights are too much and gets you faded and it's not like the normal light headed high that you get when you first start smoking...it's weird. I'm definitely switching to ultra light or lower.The hole in the cartage allows too much flow its like sucking on a straw. The E-cig's heaviness will take some getting used to and another thing is I don't realize how long I smoke could be a problem... Aside from all this I can't find anything else w

once I started refilling the cart.s been working good. need better battery's. carts refill easy and add a couple drops to the atomizer if you want some real flavor. Have to say very good design, just needs the personal touch.

Terrible Customer Service. Got it 2 weeks later, what a box of junk! Battery Life was MIA, you get 3 good drags & the rest are like smoking an ultralight! I bricked it, bought a SF 220 locally and is more like a real smoke then this junk

good product...get good vape from this! on the downside, the batteries don't last long enough when charged. (1-11/2 hours), but love the design and the charger pack! Have been using for almost a year and loving it!

Batteries have to constantly be re-charged. The first couple of hits from a new cartridge are pretty good but the rest are a lot weaker. Not very satisfying. If all hits were like the first few, I don't think I would still be craving tobacco.

fast shipping, I've found to get the most vapor you have to wait between puffs, the longer the wait the more vape you get. It's all in how u inhale, hubby hates his, can't get enuf vape, I use his and it works fine. atomizer takes some braking in.

it is a great product. One of the best purchases I have ever made. It may not be just like smoking a cig but it pretty damn close. I think buying anything to make you healthier is well worth the purchase and risk.

Replaced both batteries within 2 weeks of getting the product.The flavors were excellent but the vapor volume and throat hit were minimal.Also have the greensmoke and smoketip which are far superior.Smoketips same price as blu and it is much better.

The flavors are excellent. Atomizers are great. Carts are worthless (have to tweak), bad customer service with wait times up to 2-weeks. Low battery life. Average e-cig, great for a light smoker.

Excellent product, excellent customer service. The smoke is satisfying, flavors are good, and with the charger pack, I always have a cigarette handy. I did a LOT of research before picking an e-cig, and I'm very happy I chose Blu.

took awhile to get but that wasn't the company's fault. Worth the wait though. I say it was worth the buy honestly. Totally wouldn't mind going into wholesale for Blu.

It has now been 48 hours since I had my last "smoke cigarette."

I have been smoking a pack a day for 30 years. I have tried about 5 times to quit. I once quit for 2 weeks, which was the longest. I have tried using the gum which helped very little, the chewing did help curb my frustration some. I am impossible to be around when trying to quit. I have NO patience with anyone, I drop things, I pace the floor, I lose my concentration, .....

So far (after 48 hrs.) I have not had any nerve problems. Smoking the Blu is different for me than regular cigarettes....but it is keeping me calm and I am not suffering from any of the other symptoms I have always had before.
I find, with the blus, to really activate it, I need to take a short puff, to prime it, then I can take a deep puff. I also find I cannot take another puff ... View full review

I have had my Blu for a while, and it mostly sits on my dresser (waiting for carts). It produces a decent vapor, good throat hit, and the charging case is great. You will want to have a alternate e-cig though.

I got the blu starter kit today after waiting a month. It was on back order. It has a high smoke volume and good throat hit. It has a cool and realistic look (white battery with blue light) unlike the old fashion pen.

So far I am very happy!
