The Blu "Premium" E cigarette Review

I'm sure you've seen ads for this company all over the internet for a while now. BluCigs is a company that has been around for a few years now and their product has gotten some pretty big attention, including being featured in a few big-screen movies.

Their product is essentially the same as the Joyetech 510, even down to being able to interconnect and use each other's charging cables, batteries, atomizers and the like. But is their product really as great as they make it out to be?

Personally? I don't think so. (Now it has been almost 4 years since I have used their product so they might have improved, but they're still using the cartridges so I don't think so.)

Whenever anyone asks about my eCig (Joye eGo) usually they remark: "Oh it's like one of those Blu cigs! My friend has one of those" or "I saw it at the kwik-e-mart" or something similar and then they go on to say they're going to go buy one of the Blu's. It's usually at that point where I have to jump in and advise them not to.

When I first found out about eCigs, even before I saw my buddy at college with an eGo, I decided to try the Blu. I mean it looked so appealing. An electronic cigarette that even came with it's own portable charging case? Wow! Sign me up!

I remember being so excited when the postman finally came and delivered the package. I ripped it open as soon as I could, got everything set up and started using it right away.

It was great, it tasted much better than regular cigarettes, and it certainly didn't smell like them. I loved it!... Until about 2 days later, when I had blown through all of the cartridges included with the starter kit.

25 cartridges in less than two days...

And I had specified the cartridges with the highest strength nicotine...

So I packaged it back up, wrote the company a nice long letter asking them to improve their product and asked for a refund (which they were at least nice enough to give me).

Now like I said before; I haven't used a Blu product since that first time almost 4 years ago, so they may have improved how long the cartridges last. But from my experience, if you are a pack-a-day or more smoker, then you should avoid the Blu cig, as it will not give you sufficient satisfaction and might even turn you off to the idea of eCigs (and that would not be good!).

If you're a light smoker, the Blu system should work fine for you. If you're a heavy smoker, avoid it and go with a Joyetech product, as they seem to satisfy the heavy smokers more.



  1. Ought to try one of these, though I doubt its able to replace the real thing.

  2. Are these cigs available on online? please provide some stores to but it from. Thanks.

    1. I'm currently searching for some reputably stores that ship globally (the place I get mine from only ships in the US), they will be featured in my next post.

  3. Such an amazing blog you have posted dear i like it and also suggesting it to my friends for visiting your blog because it has really admirable and informative data which provide us through your blog so i would like to thank you for sharing it with us and also appreciate you on this so keep it up.

  4. Electronic cigs do not look that different from ordinary cigarettes that people smoke. But just because they have similar appearance, doesn't mean they function the same. If you take a buff of tobacco cigarette, you inhale a certain burning tobacco blend. But when a person smokes an electronic cig, only vapour is breathed, which is safe.Electronic Cigarette Wholesaler has a wide variety of new and latest electronic cigarettes and flavors.

  5. So I packaged it back up, wrote the company a nice long letter asking them to improve their product and asked for a refund (which they were at least nice enough to give me). the best ecig
