|Maureen from Houston, TX reviewed blu cigs model 'classic starter pack' on May 01 2012:|
OverallI 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.
Value vs. Cost
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 cigs 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 hot or raining outside - that is a BIG BONUS for me!
I will say that the battery life could be better between charges, but with the pack I can charge on the go so it's not a big deal. The batteries only take about 30 minutes to charge in the pack. So a new one is always ready to go when I need it. I have found that as the battery is getting near the end of it's charge the last 15 - 20 puffs do seem weak. I've just started switching out my battery when it starts to get weak instead of waiting for the blinking LED light. I will say my deal only let me get the original starter pack an the new premium packs are supposed to have better battery life. I will try those when mine no longer work.
I have so far tried the classic tobacco, cherry, and pina colada flavors. So far my favorite is the Pina Colada followed by Cherry as a close second. I love that you can change out flavors to your mood. I also love that it is MUCH cheaper than real cigarettes. One cartridge lasts me about 2 days, even though i'm using it WAY more than I did real cigarettes since i now smoke inside the house and even at my desk sometimes.
To sum it up - I love my blu!!
