|Sean from Portland, OR reviewed blu cigs model 'Premium 100' on January 03 2012:|
OverallI first started out with the disposable blu e-cig 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 and a pg/vg mix. The trick is to refill the cartridges before they run out as they tend to destroy themselves by the time you get the burnt taste in your mouth. The batteries initially seemed to last a reasonable amount of time, but as I used it over the course of 2 weeks they don't seem to last as long. I eventually ordered the Premium 100 to combat this and it only has marginally better battery life. I still smoke regular cigs, but have been successful in cutting back. Overall I like the blu cig and would recommend it as introduction to e-cigs.
