|Mark from Gainesville, FL reviewed blu cigs model 'Blu Cigs Premium 100' on January 16 2012:|
Value vs. Cost
I got the Blu Cigs 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 actually not had a regular cig since recieving my Blu pack so I can see that there is potential in E-cigs, maybe just not this brand.
Don't even let me start on battery life which their site claims to 250-300 before it runs out. I dont even get that. Probrably half way through the life of the cart I have to replace. AND for those that don't like the taste of manuer do not try the Java jolt with full nicotine - tastes like crap. On a positive note Vanilla and cherry flavours were pretty good.
I am not hating but it really burns when a company says something spectacular of their product and falls miles short of actual description.
I was impressed by the looks and convinience of the rechargable pack. I really like that you can carry the pack around with several cartridges (5) plus one on a battery. It is really convinient and cool looking. I am really on the fence on trying another brand just because I like the travel/on the go aspect. In the end I will probrably keep it and just use it as my on the go venue and conitnue searching.
Does anybody have any suggestions as to quality e cig that really does what it says it does?

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.

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!!!
