|Allie from Coventry, CT reviewed blu cigs model 'Original Started Kit-Black' on September 27 2011:|
OverallI 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 BLUcig 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 I was doing. Overall, this product is faulty, and does not deserve the "star" ratings it has been given. If you feel like giving BLU your money (because they won't return your money for the faulty cartridges they send you), go for it.
Value vs. Cost

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 :)
