Blu Cigs Review
Blu Cigs may very well be the most well-known electronic cigarette brand on the market, and for good reason. From the sleek black design to the massive vapor production to the seemingly everlasting battery life, the Blu Cigs e-cigarette is one of my favorites. Whether you want to find a great first e-cigarette for yourself or give a gift to a current tobacco smoker, you can’t go wrong with Blu Cigs. For more product details, check out their website at blucigs.com.
The first electronic cigarette I ever tried was actually a Blu Cig
The beautiful black color drew me in but the vapor production and battery life made me a customer for life. When I learned that my review copy of the “Blu Cigs Premium E-Cig Starter Kit” was in the mail, I honestly felt like I couldn’t wait for it to get here. Thankfully Blu Cigs has the best customer service I’ve ever experienced and got my kit to me within a few short days. I carefully opened the packaging – they package their products in the coolest boxes – and I was like a little kid on Christmas morning.
What Comes in the Blu Cig Starter Kits
- 2 x Premium BluCig batteries
- 5 x E-Cigarette Cartridges (you choose flavor and strength)
- 1 x Blu Premium Charging pack (with social features)
- 1 x Wall Charger
- 1 x USB Charger

There’s a lot to digest here – the Blu Cigarette Premium Starter Kits come with a ton of stuff. You can choose from three different kits; a black one, a white one and a Premium100 one. The white and black Premium Starter Kits run for only $79.95 and the Premium100 Starter Kit runs for only $10 more. The Premium100 Kit contains longer batteries and cartridges, just like 100-style tobacco cigarettes are longer than average cigarettes. The BluCig 100s hold more battery charge than the batteries in the Premium Kits, which is a definite plus. But even if you purchase the regular Premium Starter Kits, you won’t be disappointed by the battery life, I can assure you of that.
The Blu Cigs flavor cartridges come in a few different flavors:
classic tobacco, magnificent menthol, vivid vanilla, cherry crush, java jolt, pina colada, and peach schnapps. They also come in strengths ranging from non-nicotine to full-flavored. You get to choose both the flavor and strength of the 5-pack of cartridges that comes with the starter kit. I will review the flavors later, but just know that they are all very tasty and worth a try.
Now let’s talk about the Blu Premium Charging Pack. This thing is amazing. It not only holds your Blu Cigarettes but it charges them when you’re on the go. You just stick your e-cig in the pack, close it up and it charges whenever you’re not using it. But not only that, this thing is like the Facebook of electronic cigarettes. There is a little button on the pack that you can turn on or off. When it’s on, it will flash whenever there is another Blu Cig smoker in your area. A e-cigarette pack that charges your electronic cigarette and could possibly introduce you to your future spouse? I’ll take it.
Blu Cig Review by Category
I’ve told you all about the different features of Blu Cigs, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a great product. I’m now going to go through and rank BluCigs for all the different categories of electronic cigarette smoking. From vapor production to available accessories, I will rank Blu Cigs on every category so that you can decide whether it’s right for you.
Blu Vapor Production 10/10
The Blu Cigarette produces some of the best vapor in the industry. When I took the first puff from my Blu E Cig, I was absolutely ecstatic. After I felt a heavy throat hit as the vapor entered my lungs, I exhaled a huge plume of vapor that was bigger than any cloud of tobacco smoke I’ve ever seen. Not only does Blu vapor satisfy your cravings more than tobacco cigarettes, but you can blow better smoke rings (or should I say vapor rings?) and better enjoy the act of exhaling those beautiful clouds.
Blu Battery Life 10/10
The Blu E Cigs battery lasts a long time, there is no doubt about that. I’ve had some pretty crappy experiences with other e-cigarettes that die out on me at the worst times. With other brands I’d have to take two or three batteries with me when I went out dancing or to the bar, and I still sometimes wouldn’t make it through the night. With the Blu batteries, I honestly only need one and I will have full powered vapor throughout the entire night.
The blu charging pack also makes this whole process a lot easier. It charges the batteries when you’re on the go, and it lets you bring along a 2nd or 3rd battery (just in case, you may not need them). With the awesome battery life and charging case, worrying about how much charge your e-cig battery has is a thing of the past.
Blu Flavor Cartridges 9/10
There isn’t much to complain about in terms of the flavor cartridges offered by BluCig. They have seven great flavors for every type of e-smoker. I personally love the Peach Schnapps and Vivid Vanilla flavor, but I liked all of them. Traditional smokers may enjoy the Magnificent Menthol or Classic Tobacco flavors. 5-packs of each flavor cartridge run for only $12. I ordered one of each and each flavor was hearty, tasty and satisfying without a doubt.
The one complaint I do have, and the reason their flavor cartridges only received a 9/10, is that they only have 7 flavors. But this really isn’t a huge problem because they have a flavor for every personality and they are all high-quality flavors.
Blu Accessories 8/10
Blu Cigs does not have a huge selection of accessories, but they have everything you’ll need to start vaping e-cigarettes. They do have the coolest charging pack that I’ve seen in any brand, it not only charges your e-cigs on the go but it has an amazing social aspect that introduces you to other Blu smokers in the area. In my mind, the only accessories you need are a charger and a charging carrying case, anything beyond that is just for show, so Blu Cigs accessory selection really doesn’t bother me.
