Looking to step up from your Starter Kit? Well, we’ve put our two heavy hitters in the ring to see who comes out top. “Aiidriaaann!”
Round 1 – battery life
The Premium Kit boasts on the go charging. Its durable case is a portable charger that carries two batteries, so you’ll never go without.
The Pro Kit doesn’t charge on the go, but with its massive 950mah battery, it lasts AGES between charges. And with a 1.8ml clearomiser, you shouldn’t run out of liquid very easily when you’re out and about.
Looks all even after the first round.
2.1 million people use e-cigarettes in the UK. That’s a lot of lips. E-cigs don’t have the tobacco smoke, ash or smell of traditional cigarettes, so they’re not banned by law in public spaces. Despite this, many places won’t let you vape in public. Let’s look at where you can and can’t use blu™ e-cigs.
Next time someone asks you, “what’s vaping?”, you can tell them to look it up in the dictionary.
The Oxford Dictionary has just added “e-cig” and “vape” to its online listings. Its researchers say the use of “vape” and “e-cig” has increased ten times in the past two years. They say, “The trend of e-cigarettes has created a sort of vocabulary around it.”
Tourists with bumbags, chainsaw jugglers, roaming a-cappella groups. Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival is here, and blu staff have been fighting off flyer dudes to bring you the best bits.
Take a journey through electronic music.
Over the series of eight films, you’ll discover the history, evolution and lifestyle of the DJ. With exclusive content, retro footage and interviews from headline DJs, you’ll find out what it’s like to live and breathe the UK club scene.
So, you’ve bought a Pro Kit. You’ve given it a name. And you’ve sewn a special Pro Kit pocket into your jeans. Now, how do you fill it up right?
We’ve put together a quick guide to filling your Pro Kit with e-liquid.
Say goodbye to leaky tanks.
Watch the video:
Your Pro Kit batteries pack a lot of power (five times more than our standard batteries). To make sure you’re not waiting ages to power up your tank, and to charge it safely, we created the blu™ Pro Kit “Safe-Charge” USB Charger.
As you know, we’re all about vapour at blu eCigs, so we were fascinated to hear that a US company has made “the first and only laboratory tested vapour system for spirits” so that, not only can you vape your blu, but apparently you can vape your drink too!
Similar in size and looks to a coffee machine, the gizmo vapourises sprits into a fine mist. You then pipe vapour into a plastic bottle and inhale with a straw.
The National Alcohol Research Center has voiced concerns over taking too much but Vapshot argues that “intoxication and ethyl alcohol levels” are significantly less than drinking alcohol. Interesting idea if pricey at £412 – we think we’ll stick with our blu eCigs!
Out the box and up for a party in Autumn Street Studios.
On our way to the Lovebox after party, we took the #blufreedom bus around East London. Victoria and Shoreditch locals jumped on board and took the Oculus Rift virtual reality experience for a spin.
The results are in.
This June, we asked our Facebook followers which Cartridge Refills they’d like to see as e-liquids. Like a mini-presidential election, there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing among the frontrunners.
Tobacco Gold, Rich Tobacco and Vanilla came out top, but the vote was so close (19%, 31% and 37%) that we figured we’d make all three. We’re good like that.
The bit before that
Long before the Facebook vote, our analysts spent weeks researching the market, looking for which e-liquid flavours were hot. And of course, we asked you guys what you’d like to vape.
