|Joe from Deerfield Beach, FL reviewed blu cigs model 'Blu/ premium 100' on May 11 2012:|
OverallVery disappointed. I purchased the blu premium 100 pack after trying their disposables and liking them. Once I picked up a disposable, I never wanted to touch an analog cig again so when I ordered , I even paid $50 for express shipping since I was going through 1 1/2 disposables a day at $10 a pop. After getting my kit, I was excited. At first I really enjoyed it. There was tons of vapor and a good taste with the menthol. Then I tried a different cartomizer and the problems began. I noticed tht several of them (3 out of 5) had a burnt taste after only a few puffs. Also, the flavor disappeared quickly even when it wasn't burnt. I bought the 100 because they said the battery lasted longer (according to thir site, the same amount of puffs as 1 carto), but I had to charge the battery at least 3-4 times per carto. It never lasted longer than 45 minutes to an hour. The real problem was that when I first got it, the first 2 cartos seemed ok so I ordered 3 more boxes. By the time I realized the burnt taste and seeing posts that other people had the same problem, it was too late. I coudnt return them, even though i never opened them. The cartos are also expensive. $11 for a pack that realistically last about a half a pack of analogs is a bit much. And you cant refill them. I used to smoke 1 pack of cigs a day. I didn't increase how much I puff with the blu, but I was using 3 carto a day.
Value vs. Cost
I will say, when the cartos work, they have a good flavor at first. And you do get a lot of vapor, but it's not consistent. The pcc works well, but you better keep it charged because you will be recharging you batteries a lot. I ended up sending this back. Hopefully, it doesn't take a long time to get my refund.
For the record, I ended up getting a VOLT and couldn't be happier. It costs less, battery last 3 hours, cartos have better flavor and never burn, even when it's empty, you can refill for .47 a carto and was quick shipping (got after 2 days w/ no extra charge)
