|David from Fort Wayne, IN reviewed blu cigs model 'BLU' on April 12 2011:|
OverallThis is the first e-cig I have tried.
Value vs. Cost
Ordered the starter kit on Thursday morning, it arrived in the mail Monday. At first they seem to work great, but there is no 250 puffs in there. After 20-30 puffs they start to taste wierd and vapor production is decreased. I prefer the menthol and cherry flavors. If I puffed a cigarette the way you have to puff the blu for vapor, I would be done in about 2 drags.
The battery life is questionable, it seems like you are constantly charging something, mostly the cig batteries. They work good after a fresh charge, but I think I will need extras to keep up with the low length of life.
I have decided to try and refill the flavor cartridges myself to save some money and see what all is out there. I ordered a sample kit from Johnson Creek.
I really like the product, but the performance dramatically decreases over time.
If they would have spent a little bit less on engineering the fancy box, they would of had a few bucks left over to invest in the performance of the batteries.

Hey David......I have an issue with the flavor choices and left the comment immediately preceding yours. I wanted to alert you that it may void your warranty if you refill them yourself with other e-liquid. I have read that you are only permitted to use their cartridges. I may return mine and order another brand e cig with more choices. Smoke Tip has great reviews. I have a friend who has used that brand for over a year and they have numerous flavor choices. I understand that these companies want to sell cartridges as that is where the money is, but they need to offer adequate flavors options so we don't feel the need to refill them with other e-liquid. If they don't want to offer more flavors......let us refill!
