Electronic Cigarette Blu Cigs Review

Blu Cigs is a great alternative to tobacco cigarettes. Because Blu ecigs release only water vapor, there is no secondhand smoke and no unpleasant odor. Blu flavor cartridges deliver nicotine through a mist, so there are no flames, ashes, or butts left behind. Blu vapor disappears within seconds and does not discolor clothes, fingers, or teeth.

They takes pride in using only US-made ingredients in its e-liquid, formulated by hand at Johnson Creek’s Wisconsin facilities. Johnson Creek’s Smoke Juice has propelled Blu Cigs to the top of the ecig charts with its superior and authentic taste.

Full Blu Cigs Review

Blu electronic cigarettes replicate the true size and feel of traditional cigarettes for a wonderfully rich user experience. They even come with a carry pack similar to the flip-top box which also doubles as a portable charger. The lightweight design is crumple-resistant, protecting your e-cigarettes from accidental damage and exposure to the elements.

With interior slots for up to five spare e-cig flavor cartridges and a charging slot that replenishes your batteries up to six times before requiring a full recharge, the Blu Pack is the perfect companion for the smoker on the go.

Blu eCigs not only sells electronic cigarettes – it is selling freedom. More and more smokers are becoming lepers, shunned by society and left out in the cold. With Blu’s social-media-savvy charging pack, you can find retailers and other Blu users near you, giving you the perfect ice-breaking opportunity or the chance to replenish your supply of Blu while you’re out and about. Smoking after all is a social activity.

Packaging and Style

While most e-cigarette companies are busy trying to create every possible battery color, Blu Cigs takes the classy and sophisticated approach: black or white, with a thin gold band and the stylish Blu logo.

Each Blu starter kit comes with a black or white case that looks exactly like a flip-top hard pack. The case not only serves as storage for your ecigs but also as a portable charger. There are seven slots in each pack, five to hold your cartridges, one to hold your spare battery, and one for charging. The inside of the pack is clearly labeled with easy-to-read icons to help keep everything organized.

Charging is very convenient – just drop your ecigs into the slots and close the flap, no need to unscrew the battery from the cartridge. The charging case has two triple-light indicators on the side, one for case charging (blue) and another for battery charging (red). The pack connects easily to any standard wall outlet or USB port, giving you two convenient recharging options.

Blu Cigs packs are highly durable. The inside is resistant to breakdown and chemical leakage, and the interiors are made of a hygienic material called Santoprene.

The “social” feature of the new Blu Cigs packs has been creating a buzz in the e-cig world. The pack will vibrate and flash whenever another Blu user or retail location is within 50 feet. It also uses a micro USB connection that allows users to store and share Facebook or Twitter information in the pack. If you don’t want to use the social media function, you can easily turn it off.

Editors note: This brand has real swag and excellent style.

Blu Cigs offers three types of electronic cigarette kits:

Original Blu Starter Kit (black or white)

  • 1 charging pack
  • 2 batteries
  • 1 wall charger
  • 1 USB charger
  • 5 cartridges in the strength and flavor of your choice

Premium Blu Starter Kit (black or white)

  • 1 charging pack with social features
  • 2 batteries
  • 1 wall charger
  • 1 USB charger
  • 5 cartridges in the strength and flavor of your choice

Premium100 Blu Starter Kit (black only)

  • 1 charging pack with social features
  • 2 premium batteries
  • 1 wall charger
  • 1 USB charger
  • 5 cartridges in the strength and flavor of your choice

Premium100 batteries are longer and rounder than original and premium electronic cigarettes. They last longer between charges and cartridges hold more liquid.

Flavor and Vapor

Blu Cigs vapor tastes so good because they’re made from Johnson Creek Smoke Juice.

Created exclusively for Blu Cigs, Smoke Juice uses only US-made ingredients that guarantee maximum flavor and performance. Master mixers at Johnson Creek make each fresh batch by hand. Smoke Juice ingredients include distilled water, nicotine, natural and artificial flavors, USP glycerin, and citric acid. Johnson Creek’s Smoke Juice is propylene glycol free.

Blu offers seven unique flavors for every taste bud and lifestyle.

The original Blu e-cig flavor, Classic Tobacco is a proprietary blend of Burley and Brightleaf tobaccos. Flue-cured Cavendish is added to bring out the natural sweetness. For those who enjoy the taste and feel of a rich, full-flavored tobacco cigarette, Classic has you covered.

Cool, refreshing, and striking yet subdued, Magnificent Menthol cartridges deliver an aromatic, sub-zero surge of icy-cold tranquility. Peppermint, spearmint, and natural menthol crystals invigorate as they calm and revitalize as they soothe.

Vivid Vanilla combines the complex floral aroma of Tahitian vanilla with the rich, velvety flavor of Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. Expertly cured to ideal moisture levels with just a hint of sweetness, Vivid Vanilla captures the allure and pure essence of one of nature’s most beguiling flavors.

A burst of Black Cherry swaddled in Maraschino undertones and blended with the dark mahogany blush of juicy Bing cherries, Cherry Crush is a tantalizingly tangy, potent, punchy and sweet addition to the Blu Cigs range.

With a warm, inviting aroma and an unmistakable coffee bean taste, Java Jolt evokes the laidback rhythm of coffee house culture and quaint sidewalk cafés. Always good to the last drop, Java Jolt is pure robust e-cigarette flavor that any discerning coffee connoisseur will love.

With every puff of Pina Colada, you’ll encounter a wave of Cayenne pineapple and silky-smooth coconut milk flavoring that’s pure paradise. A single cartridge floods your mouth with a tasty tropical concoction that’s equivalent to a full pack of regular cigarettes.

Aromatically pleasing and delightfully sweet, Peach Schnapps is a non-alcoholic overture of sun-ripened Clingstone peaches and spice flavorings blended with the distinct taste of distilled spirits. Each delicious puff packs a peach punch that is guaranteed to satisfy.

With no assembly and nothing to recharge, Blu Disposables are the ideal choice for first time electronic cigarette users. Equivalent to 400 puffs or a pack-and-a-half of traditional cigarettes, these disposable ecigs are compact and ready to use right out of the package. Blu Disposables are available in Classic Tobacco and Magnificent Menthol flavors.

The mouthpiece of each Blu flavor cartridge is covered with a silicone tip to prevent leakage. One-hole intake allows for maximized draw and resistance for a real cigarette feel.

Despite its use of 100% vegetable glycerin with a very easy draw, Blu Cigs produces lackluster vapor.

Blu Cigs only sells prefilled cartridges. Refilling them will void the warranty.

Blu Cigs Nicotine Levels

Blu Cigs offers four different nicotine strengths:

  • Full-flavored: 13-16mg
  • Light: 9-12mg
  • Ultra Light: 6-8mg
  • Non-Nicotine: 0mg

Disposable Blu e-cigs are available in 20-24mg (Classic Tobacco) and 17-24mg (Magnificent Menthol) varieties.

PLus: blu is the ONLY e-cig that makes its liquid in the USA using 100% American ingredients.

Battery and Value

Blu Cigs only makes automatic batteries. Its fashion-conscious clientele is more concerned about reproducing an authentic smoking experience than the extra vapor control provided by manual batteries.

The Blu battery is about the same size of a regular cigarette, making it one of the best transition products around. It’s incredibly light and easy to hold between your fingers. Of course, like all mini batteries, the life of Blu is substantially shorter than the bulkier batteries out there. For customers who prefer value over looks, Blu Cigs has created the Premium 100 model with extended battery life.

4 ecig batteries 2 white and 2 black

Blu is one of the most responsive batteries on the market today. You don’t have to draw very hard to get the vapor flowing.

Unlike most e-cigarettes, Blu Cigs only gives you 80 to 100 puffs per charge. Light smokers are able to pull about 4-6 hours out of it, but heavy smokers usually drain the battery in a matter of 2 hours. However, since Blu comes with a portable case that also charges your batteries on-the-go, you can carry 5 cartridges and 2 fully-charged batteries anywhere you go.

Blu Cigs Value

You can get an Original Blu Cigs Starter Kit for $69.95 – not your best option if you’re on a budget. Do note however that this is a one-time purchase. Once you have your Blu Cigs kit, there is nothing else to buy except cartridges. Each Blu Cigs flavor cartridge lasts for about the same amount of time as one pack of cigarettes and depending on how many flavor packs you purchase at one time, you can get them for as little as $1.92 per cartridge.

With traditional cigs going for around $5 in most states, you can save around $3 per pack of cigarettes. For the pack a day smoker, switching to Blu Cigs means a weekly savings of about $20 and a yearly savings of over $1000! Now you don’t have to burn all that money while still smoking at the same frequency and enjoying the same amount of nicotine your body craves.

About Blu Cigs Brand

Blu Cigs was founded by Jason Healy in 2009. Deviating from the typical screw-in charging construction, Blu Cigs created a proprietary device that ensures optimum battery performance and lets users charge their ecigs on the go.

There partnership with Johnson Creek has resulted in the best vapor flavors in the industry today.

They have been featured on various television commercials and programs, as well as music videos. Blu e-cigs recently made an appearance in the sci-fi short film “Plurality”.

In April 2012, Lorillard acquired Blu Cigs for $135 million, marking the first foray by Big Tobacco into the rapidly growing electronic cigarette sector. Lorillard is the company behind the Newport, Kent, True, Maverick, and Old Gold brands.

Blu Cigs is located in Charlotte, North Carolina and has been a BBB Accredited Business since August 2010.

About Johnson Creek Enterprises

Located in Hartland, Wisconsin, Johnson Creek Enterprises was founded in 2008 with a single mission: to improve the taste of e-liquid. The company’s proprietary formula called Smoke Juice is distinct for its superior quality and flavor made from seven FDA-approved ingredients. The Johnson Creek Smoke Juice has helped make Blu Cigs the #1 selling electronic cigarette and guarantees that the complete line of Blu products always meets the highest benchmarks of quality and satisfaction. Johnson Creek is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company and has been a BBB Accredited Business since June 2009.

Blu Cigs Conclusion

The Blu Cigs electronic cigarette looks like a real smoke, tastes like a real smoke, and almost hits like a real smoke. Although the battery life is underwhelming, Blu makes up for it with the charge-on-the-go Blu Pack.

The flavors from Johnson Creek’s Smoke Juice are definitely top-notch. Unfortunately, all that flavor is delivered via vapor that is subpar compared to other brands.

While this kit might not work for experienced vapers who demand superior vapor performance from bigger ecigs, Blu Cigs is the way to go if you’re simply looking to transition from regular tobacco to electronic cigarettes.

I tried blu from a friends recommendation, I was using an off brand from 7 eleven, pretty much tasted like cardboard. So wanted to try a quality brand. I have not had much experience with other brands but the flavor and vapor that the blu cigs have are really good imo. Im not completely sold on just blu cigs yet but I did fell compelled to give my 2 cents. Oh ya and one thing that I really like is that I heard that volcano cartomizers work on small blu batteries which is the other brand I wanted to try.

Right off the bat I made the mistake of trying blu cigs with a disposable first and hated it for some reason. But I had read more about the amazing flavor and wanted to give them a second chance. There is nothing worth then a less then expected first vap. Once I got a real kit I charged my batteries up and took my first hit. The throat hit was nice n smooth and the vap overall was also pleasant. On ex haul the vapor was decent. But after charging the batteries about 40 times they seemed to not want to be as powerful. I read on some forums that blu batteries are not very good. Out of the 2 I got one was defective imo and one was amazing. I’m assuming these are all made fast in china anyways. I have read that the Volcano batteries are the same for 2-3 dollars less if someone wanted to buy extra.(not tested myself)

Now the other cool thing about blu is shipping was free and I did use a coupon code from this site. (have not idea where it was) but got a great deal. (my favorite thing of all time is coupons).

I could vent about a few other trivial things when I called to check on my order but not really my style.

Greetings, I’ve been reading your reviews for about a week now and I think I’ve made up my mind and will be buying a starter kit from Blu Cigs. Thanks for the help and pointing me in the right direction.

I’m not that much of a reader but man these reviews are good. At first I thought oh no, huge review I don’t want to read this. But I got through it. You should make a video review on Blu Cigs like you did for V2 and Green. I would’ve liked that a lot more. Thx

I purchased blu e cigg starter kit original at a local tobacco shop, because a friend had it, and I hated the smell of my smoking habits. It seems to me like most problems occur with the blu premium. The ooriginal however has been great for me. The first day, I charged for 1-2 hours like the instructions said. Then after both my batteries and pack was charged, I screwed in my cartridges and began puffing. I loved the tobacco flavor, it was strong and smooth. If you smoke heavily then get your cartridges in full flavor. The full flavor has the most nicotine. My battery has not depleted in two days, and so it’s great. If my battery does run down then I can use my spare. What’s great about blu is that I can charge my battery even on the go. Oh, and word of advice, once your blu battery is done charging in the PACK, take it out. Because if not it will suck the battery life out of the cigg battery. It says that in the introduction. Have a fresh day! And choose blu! It may be costly, but I’d rather pay more for quality!. Remember, you get what you pay for”

Yes blus have some issues. I am a new vaper and probably not the best reviewer, but so far here is my experience. I cannot imagine an e-cig tasting much better than these, I have tried one other brand, it tasted odd and had a chemical aftertaste. The coffee flavored cartridges are a little flaky and low on output as other people say, but their flavor is unbelievable, I cannot describe how good they are and I will keep smoking the Java carts as long as they sell it. The batteries are OK, not great, I am using their new kit with the short batteries. The blus quality is all in their cartridges, unsurpassed flavor.

Well I just started trying blu e-cigs and from my opinion there top of the line. When it comes to flavor can’t beat it smooth, no after taste, and they taste good. I prefer the menthol ones my self. From being a smoker making the transition to blu e-cigs was pretty easy, I really enjoy them no complains from me.

I love the Blu’s, the flavor of the regular tobacco and the menthol are my fav’s. I’ve tried 2 other brands but like Blu the best. Only complaint is the battery life is short. I order online and at first the shipping left a little to be desired but lately shipments get to me sooner. Just wish the premiums were carried in the stores so when I run out (from forgetting to order on time) I could get them locally.

I have grid several e cigs and didn’t like any. When you draw they choke you and taste awful. I saw the commercial for blu and decided to try them. I’ve been trying to quit smoking and thought this might help. Pleasantly surprised. I bought the disposable menthol And its by far the best one out there! I highly reccomend this one.
