How Long Does A Blu Cartridge Last?

Asking how long a Blu cartridge lasts is kind of like asking how much a regular cigarette lasts. The answer is always that it varies by person. To add more confusion to the question, most smokers or ex-smokers want to know how a Blu Cig cartridge equates to a regular cigarette. Relating an ecig to a regular cigarette is really hard because you’re essentially estimating two numbers and then comparing them against each other. It’s not an accurate estimation at all. The best way to know how much a Blu Cig cartridge will last you is if you give it a try and keep count of the puffs. Depending on the sources you read, a Blu Cigs cartridge could last anywhere from 250-300 puffs or anywhere from 20-30 puffs. Both of these low and high ranges are outrageous and most people will never get as little as 20 puffs or as much as 300 puffs. In this article we’re going to try and make some sense out of Blu Cigs puff claims to reflect a more realistic number for the average vaper. So How Long Does A Blu Cartridge Last? Depending on how long the vaper’s drawing lasts for, they could be looking at a cartridge lasting anywhere from 50 to 80 puffs. Blu Cigs claims that cartridges last 250-300 puffs, but it’s possible they tested this with one or two second draw. The average smoker however could draw for anywhere from two to five seconds. That means that those 250-300 manufacturer puff claims end up being much lower with longer puffs. The other factor that goes into how long a cartridge will last is the hardness with which draws are taken. Someone could draw in as much cartridge flavor in one second by drawing really hard, as much as another average person could draw in four seconds. It’s really hard to predicate how many puffs a smoker will get out of ecigs because of this. The realistic puff average on a cartridge is 50-80 puffs. This might seem like a small number of puffs but it’s actually pretty good. Considering that a regular cigarette lasts anywhere from 8-20 puffs, a Blu Cigs cartridge equates to about 3-7.5 regular cigarettes. That might not really mean anything to you though. The general idea is to expect one ecig to last at least as much as three regular cigarettes, and to expect vaping to cost much less than regular smoking. It Varies by Flavor Some flavors can give you as much as 150 puffs while others can give you as much as 60 puffs. Again, the best way to find out how long cartridges will last you is by trying the cartridge flavors yourself. Blu Cigs’ Cost Compared to Cigarettes Cigarette packs run around $5.20 these days and come with 20 cigarettes: whereas five Blu Cigs cartridges cost $12. If you do the math above you might figure that ecigs cost more to vape than regular smoking does. But as mentioned earlier […]

How Do I Know When My Blu Cig Cartridge Is Empty?

Knowing when your Blu Cigs cartridge is empty is quite simple to figure out. When you first start drawing on the cartridge make a note of the flavor and hardness with which you have to draw. As you start nearing the end of the cartridge’s life, which could be around 50-100 puffs depending on your drawing style, think about the flavor’s taste. Compare the current taste to the beginning when you started out and determine if it has weakened. **Note: Premium100 cartridges last for about 80-150 puffs. If the flavor has reached such a weak state where it is no longer noticeable or enjoyable, it’s time to start a new cartridge. The one thing you have to watch out for is your battery life though. Sometimes your flavor may weaken because the battery has become depleted, not because the cartridge has run out of flavor. When you first start vaping you should switch out the weak cartridge’s battery with a new one and test it. If the cartridge is weak even with a new battery you will know that it has run out. Once you know how cartridges taste when they themselves have run out, it will be a breeze to know when to replace them.

Blu-Compatible Cartridges And Blu Cig Cartridge Equivalents

When it comes to Blu battery-compatible cartridges, there aren’t many options out there. The two reliable manufacturers for cartridges other than Blu Cigs are Easy Vapors and PurpleCig. Easy Vapors has a wide range of cartridge flavors ranging from peppermint blast and Belgian waffle to traditional tobacco.  5-cartridge packs from Easy Vapors cost $9.99, which is $2 cheaper than Blu Cigs cartridge packs. PurpleCig on the other hand only offers Tobacco and Menthol cartridges. Their cartridges are sold in packs of and cost $8.49. This is $2.51 cheaper than Blu Cigs cartridges. Although the flavor options at Easy Vapors looks great, as does the money saving at PurpleCig, vapers are recommended to be cautious with these brands. They are only online sellers and don’t have an established business. This could mean a lot of things ranging from not having safe credit card processing, to cartridges that have been sitting on shelves for years. With Blu Cigs and other reputable brands you get a satisfaction guarantee policy as well as peace of mind that when you order, you’ll get what you paid for. Vapers looking to save money on Blu Cigs cartridges could look into refilling cartridges themselves (which isn’t recommended and voids Blu Cigs warranties). However, filling up cartridges yourself at least insures that you know what goes into your cartridges and that everything is fresh. Not to mention that refilling cartridges yourself saves much more money than buying cartridges from other manufacturers. Since vaping already saves money when compared to smoking, it’s not really necessary to go the extra step and try to take down the price even more. Refilling your own cartridges will result in a lessened vaping experience (and a lot of hassle), while buying cartridges anywhere from Blu Cigs will result in unnecessary risks. But to each their own. Just be careful if you ever order cartridges from an unknown site. Be especially cautious about ordering eliquid or cartridges from companies based outside of the USA, as they won’t have the same chemical standards for flavoring as companies do in America.

How To Change Blu Cig Cartridges

Changing a depleted Blu Cigs cartridge with a new one is very simple. Just make sure that before you change and throw out a cartridge that you’ve used all of the flavoring in it. To replace a cartridge, hold the battery with one hand and unscrew the cartridge with another hand. Then get a new cartridge and screw it on. How to Change a Blu Cigs Battery If your battery has died out but your cartridge still has flavor left in it, then you should just put the cartridge back into your Blu Cigs pack. Once you close the top flap of the pack the battery will begin to charge. In the event that you need to switch out a battery on a cartridge, then just unscrew two batteries from their cartridges and make the switch.

Blu Cigs Starter Kit Pricing Info

The Blu Cigs Starter Kit pricing and name can be a bit confusing at first for new vapers. But it doesn’t have to be confusing for our readers. The Starter Kit is merely a categorical name that encompasses the four vaping packs sold by Blu Cigs. It’s kind of like the Apple category “MacBook,” where you can either buy a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. Just trying to buy a “MacBook” doesn’t mean anything to laptop sellers. Trying to buy just a “Starter Kit” doesn’t mean anything either unless you specify the specific pack you’re looking to get. For Blu Cigs products, the Starter Pack, Premium Pack, Premium100 pack, and the Original Pack are all “Starter Kits.” All of these packs hold five flavor cartridges that can be recharged by simply placing them in the pack and closing the flap. The Starter Pack sold by retailers all over the world can cost anywhere from $69.95 to $79.95. It all depends on the markup the retailer adds on. The Premium Pack is sold online by Blu Cigs for $79.95 and is a better investment over the Starter Pack due to its improved battery and social features. The Premium pack also holds a spare battery and reports battery levels on both the active and spare batteries. Next up is the Premium100 Pack, which has cartridges that are 10% larger. The Premium100 Pack costs $89.95 and is the most advanced vaping kit that Blu Cigs offers. The Original Pack is another product classified as a Starter Kit. However, you can no longer buy this pack online and not a lot of retailers offer them anymore. If you saw an Original Pack in a store you shouldn’t expect to pay more than $39.95 for it. And even at that “cheap” price, the Original Pack would not be worth it because it’s a bit outdated. The majority of ex-smokers or vapers looking for the optimal vaping experience or battery life should consider the Premium or Premium100 packs. Since vaping packs are used for at least a year or two, buying them is an investment that should be researched somewhat. It makes much more sense to buy an $89.95 Premium100 Pack today than to buy a Starter Pack for $60-70 today and then to buy a Premium100 Pack later down the road because an upgrade is desired. An extra $10-20 today will go a long way in the future. Considering which Blu Cigs Starter Kit is best for you isn’t just a matter of looking at the prices but also thinking long-term and comparing the features of each pack. Our reviews highlight the pros and cons of the Starter Kits as well as comparing between them so that it makes the investment decision easier.

How Does Refilling Blu Cartridges Work?

Although refilling Blu Cigs cartridges by yourself is possible, it isn’t recommended. The cartridges are designed to be thrown away after their flavor has been used up.  Also keep in mind that opening your cartridges and refilling them may void the warranty on your entire Blu Cigs Pack. With that in mind, vapers have found that Blu Cigs cartridges can be refilled four to five times before the flavor starts to diminish. Whereas five cartridges cost $12 from Blu Cigs, you can refill 20-25 cartridges with one $10 ejuice bottle. If you follow the instructions below you should be able to refill your cartridges for really cheap. We are not responsible for any damage you cause to yourself or others through the correct or incorrect following of our guide.

Where Can I Buy Blu Cig Cartridges?

Although you can buy Blu Cigs cartridges from local stores, it’s not a good idea to do so. Local stores often have to mark up the cartridges to make a profit. Buying it from them is counter-intuitive because ecigs are supposed to save you money. Also you have no way of knowing how long those local stores have been holding their cartridges on their shelves for. If you’re buying a cartridge pack that has been on shelves for a couple of years, do you think you’ll be able to get a refund or replacement when you claim there’s something wrong with your order? After all… You could have just used up the cartridges and then no one would want to test them themselves, or have a way of knowing that you didn’t already use them. Ordering cartridges online directly through the Blu Cigs site will insure that you’re getting brand new cartridges that have been manufactured recently. Not to mention that the Blu Cigs site and team is always ready to help you out if there is a problem with your order. The official Blu Cigs site also offer free shipping on their products, so you’ll save money ordering online for a lower price than paying the retail price. Also you will have the peace of mind you need when ordering. If you order a more than one cartridge pack through Blu Cigs you will get a discount price as well. 1 five pack costs $12, 2 five packs cost $10.80 each, and 4 five packs cost $9.60 each. How’s that for really cheap and convenient? Once you get into the order of things with the flavors and you know what you like, you can just order yourself a couple of months supply twice or three times a year. That’s definitely a great perk over smoking regular cigarettes where you have to buy a pack or a dozen packs every couple of days.

My Blu Cig Disposable Doesn’t Work!

Blu Cigs Disposables should work right out of the box. Simply peel of the green sticker that says “peel off” and begin drawing from the side with the Blu logo. It Still Doesn’t Work! If you bought your Blu Cigs Disposables from a brick and mortar store and they aren’t working it’s possible that the battery has been depleted. When you buy the Disposables directly from Blu Cigs you can expect them to work all the time. You might want to contact the store which you bought your Disposables and ask if you can get a replacement. However, stores are unlikely to provide you with a replacement. This is because they can’t make sure that you didn’t just run out the ecig by using it rather than it never having worked in the first place. Whether you skip contacting the store you bought your Disposables from, or they don’t want to help, you should contact Blu Cigs. They have a live chat system on their site as well as toll free number to contact them through. Blu Cigs can assist you with getting a replacement for your disposables as well as finding a vendor that is reliable. In general it’s a good idea to only order directly from the Blu Cigs website because their Disposables will always have fresh batteries and haven’t sat on shelves for long.

How Long Does A Disposable Blu Cigarette Last?

Blu Cigs Disposables are designed to never be recharged or used again after the flavor runs out so they have to produce much more puffs than the rechargeable (and cheaper) cartridges. A Disposable cartridge will provide a vaper with about 300-400 puffs. In comparison, 400 puffs is about a pack and a half of regular cigarettes. That may seem like a lot but remember that one Disposable cartridge costs about $10 to purchase. A regular pack of cigarettes costs about $5.20. So if you’re going to get a Disposable cartridge make sure that you’re doing so with a good reason: either that you’re travelling and don’t want to bring around your Blu Cigs Pack and charger, or that you’re trying out ecigs to see if they are right for you.

No Vapor Coming Out Of My Disposable Blu Cig!

If no vapor is coming out of your Disposable Blu Cig, don’t panic. Make sure that you have taken the green sticker off of the disposable off first. Also draw a couple of times harder than you usually would to see if that gets things going. With Disposable Blu Cigs you don’t have to press a button or anything before drawing. It’s all automatic. So if no vapor is being produced even when you draw harder, then it might mean that the battery is dead. This is really common with retail stores that keep the Disposables on shelves for months or years on end and then a sucker ends up buying it and it doesn’t work. It can be kind of hard to get a refund, because the owner of the store can’t really prove that you didn’t just vape all of the flavor and drain the battery vs. it actually being dead when you purchased it. Ordering Disposable Blu Cigs online directly from the Blu Cigs site is advised because the products they sell are always quality tested and they never send out Disposables with dead batteries. Not to mention that if there ever was a defective ecig that came from Blu Cigs, they will refund or replace the faulty item at hand.
