Blu Cigs is one of the hottest brands on the market right now and they offer some of the most cutting edge features and designs. I’ve heard Blu called the “Apple” of e-cigarettes. They are always pushing the envelope and coming out with some crazy new feature that makes the vaping experience better than ever. Blu ecigs are available in stores all over the United States, but you will get the best price if you buy the starter kits and cartridges online. In fact, they are typically a lot more expensive at convenience stores.

Blu was one of the first brands of e-cigarettes reviewed by the ElectronicCigarettesReviews.net review team and has proven to be a favorite of consumers throughout the US and abroad.

Some of the reasons for the popularity of Blu E-Cigs are:

Blu is economical – The Blu Electronic Cigarette starter kit can be purchased for $69.95. Many people that have never tried e-cigarettes choose Blu because there isn’t a huge upfront investment.

Blu has great flavors – The flavors that Blu offers include Classic Tobacco, Magnificent Menthol, Java Jolt, Vivid Vanilla and Cherry Crush, Pina Colada, and Peach Schnapps. Several consumers just prefer the taste of Blu E-Cigarettes over their competitors. Several of our review team members really enjoyed the flavor of the Java Jolt cartridge. Also, several consumer reviews tout the Classic Tobacco flavor because it is so similar to smoking a “traditional” tobacco cigarette. Blu Cigs has partnered with Johnson Creek Smoke Juice to bring their consumers 100% USA made eLiquid inside their cartridges.

Blu batteries can be charged on the go – This is perhaps one of the biggest advantages of Blu Electronic Cigarettes. Blu e-cigs come with a carrying case that charges the e-cigarette batteries while you are on the go. Each of the batteries can be recharged up to 6 times. This means you’ll never be left without an e-cig when you really want one. Many companies are starting to copy Blu Cigs Charger Pack, but Blu Cigs has offered their charger pack longer than almost any other e cig brand out there.

Blu Electronic Cigarettes have a blue LED light at the end of the e-cigarette that lights up when you take a puff. Some e-cigs have an orange light instead and this can really make the e-cig look too much like a tobacco cigarette, which isn’t a good thing when you are puffing an e-cigarette in a bar or restaurant.

These are just a few of the reasons that Blu has garnered so much attention and respect by e-cigarette smokers everywhere. With the low initial cost for the starter kit and the great flavors available, it is no wonder that this brand of e-cig is a favorite of both our review team and consumers that have reviewed Blu.

Blu Cigs are used by a large amount of celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Lindsay Lohan, they have a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series sponsored car, and they are constantly working on pushing the e-cigarette industry forward. All this makes for a solid company that is here to stay.

Blu Premium Pack

Now let’s talk about some details. I recently tried the Blu Premium Pack, which sells for $79.95. It is the most popular starter kit that Blu offers and it comes in either black or white. The kit includes a premium e-cig charger pack with social features, 2 batteries, 1 wall charger, a USB charger, and a 5-pack of cartridges in the strength and flavor of your choice.

The Premium Pack comes in a package that looks like an iphone box. It’s really nicely packaged and you realize instantly that this is a brand that cares about even the tiniest details.

Right away, I noticed that the Blu batteries are tiny so the full e-cig is about the length of an actual cigarette. It’s much smaller than most ecigs I tried and I think that’s a feature that most smokers will find attractive.

The charger pack was probably my favorite aspect of the Premium kit. To work the social feature, you just push a button to turn it on. If you get close to another Blu Cig user with a social pack, your pack with light up and vibrate like crazy. It’s kind of a cool conversation starter and will definitely help you connect with other vapers if you are out in a bar or in a big crowd.

When you put the battery in the premium pack, it doesn’t screw in or anything. You just place it on the charging slot. Then you close the lid and it blinks to show you that your battery is charging. Just keep in mind that there will be a couple seconds of delay before that light comes on to let you know it’s charging.

Blu Premium 100 Kit

I also tried the Blu Premium 100 Kit, which sales for $89.95. It comes with a Premium100 pack with social features, 2 batteries, a wall charger, a USB charger, and a five pack of cartridges in your choice of flavor and nicotine strength. This kit is a great option if you want batteries that last a little longer.

Blu Cartridge Options

You can get refill cartridges in seven flavors: Vivid Vanilla, Cherry Crush, Magnificent Menthol, Classic Tobacco, Java Jolt, Pina Colada, and Peach Schnapps. Nicotine strengths range from zero nicotine to high (13-16mg). Each cartridge has a little symbol on the side to mark the flavor.

As I mentioned earlier, a lot of our team members liked the Java Jolt. It is a less intense coffee flavor and it has really decent vapor production. My personal favorite was the Cherry Crush. It is a completely unique cherry flavor and it’s actually the best cherry e-cig I’ve ever tried. It’s just very fresh and sweet. Blu’s tobacco flavor gives you a rich, deep tobacco taste and it kind of grows on you the more you use it. It’s more of a nonflavored tobacco like the discount brands that a lot of smokers use so it’s a good transitional flavor for people that are just trying to switch over to e-cigs. The tobacco flavor definitely gives off more vapor than any of Blu’s other flavor options. My least favorite was the Magnificent Menthol. It gave me a good amount of vapor, but it had to be primed a lot. Plus it had no throat hit and the flavor was just way too mild.

The Bottom Line on Blu Cigs

Overall, Blu is a great brand that is definitely a favorite for many e-cig users. However, it definitely doesn’t perform as well as V2 Cigs. Still I would say this is a decent option. Just make sure you buy your Blu kits online to save money!

    I tried three other brands before blu (one is on the top 25 list on this site…) and I wish I had tried blu FIRST! They have EXCELLENT customer service that you can get in touch with any day & at anytime by phone or through the chat on their site. I purchased the blu Premium 100 starter kit and three additional packs of cartridges and got points that I can use towards future purchases (or even free product with sufficient points!) They even give you free UPS shipping with orders just totaling $100.00. With such a great product at fair prices and EXCELLENT customer service, blu should be at the #1 spot on this list in my opinion.

    I kept seeing info about Blu all over TV and hearing it on the radio for months. My mom has begged me to stop smoking forever but it’s a habit I started in the military and I just can’t kick it. So I figured Blu might be a good alternative because it’s at least tobacco free. I tried Blu for the first time yesterday and while it’s still early, so far I’m a big fan. The vapor is thick like real cigarette smoke and honestly, it tastes better than regular cigarettes. So far, I really like it.

    I first tried Blu Cig when I saw it in a service station while buying gas. I’d seen the commercials on TV and thought I’d try a disposable. I bought the Menthol and liked it. The vapor was really really thick. So I ordered a kit and I’m vaping my Blu right now. It has the thickest vapor hands down. It just lingers. I don’t miss my old cigs at all and I plan to stick with Blu from here on out.

    No complaints except for one….have yet to have a battery that lasted more than 3 months. At $12 a piece, I suppose they can afford to replace them frequently under their 1 year warranty, if people want to go to the hassle of sending them back all of the time.
