|Mel from Benton, AR reviewed blu cigs model 'White/Natural' on April 22 2011:|
OverallMy 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 cig and that was only because I let both batteries run down. The taste is great (normally smoke Doral Lights)and the Blu cig gives off a lot of vapor which makes it seem like I'm smoking a regular cig. The Blu cig 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!)
Value vs. Cost
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 cig is something my wife can live with. She loves the fact that there is no smell and says she no longer has to kiss an ashtray. My daughter-in-law convinced me to store one in inside an empty Doral pack for the first few days of use so that it absorbed the smell of the Dorals as well as I was able to open my regular pack and remove a "cig" out so it seemed more like my usual routine. It helped make the transition smoother and now I store in the Blu cig recharge pack.
I did have 2 butts that leaked a small amount of nicotine but otherwise everything has been great. I am definitely thrilled with my purchase and will continue using the Blu cig.
