The Blu Disposable e-cigarette offers a similar vaping experience without the complexities of dealing with a standard vape. It costs significantly less than more advanced vape products. Its low cost, ubiquity, and simplicity have made it a common introductory product for many new vapers. Best e-cigarettes show off the convenience and ease-of-use vaping affords over traditional cigarettes.

To cater to different taste preferences, Blu e-cigs are available in different flavors. They are also inexpensive. So these vapes offer a fun way to try out Blu’s standard flavors before committing to buying a more advanced vape device.

As self-contained devices, these disposable e-cigarettes require no maintenance or assembly whatsoever. They come ready to use in the box. Vapers need only extract them from the package and remove the rubber seal to start using them. Using a button-less design, they activate with a medium-strength pull. It makes them feel somewhat like smoking a regular tobacco-and-paper cigarette. Users do not need to recharge e cigs, and the batteries and e-liquid can last for up to 400 puffs.

A Well-Aged, Disposable Companion

Blu first started selling its disposable e-cigarettes around the start of 2010. They have gone through several iterations since then. The current generation of Blu e-cigs draws from the lessons learned before. This helps to provide a refined vaping experience without the old versions` problems.

Newer versions require less strength to pull a puff. Many vapers complained about it in the past. They also have a bigger battery and more e-liquid than previous iterations. Newer versions produce a more satisfying hit with better flavor. It’s much better than vapers had previously experienced with them. Blu disposable is a great, affordable substitute choice. Especially when traveling with a regular vape is impractical. Users can easily find it in an online store or write “blu e cig near me” in your browser.

Blu E-Cig Review: Self-Contained Ease of Use

Blu e-cigs are easy to use. E-cigarettes come packaged in a box with a single e-cig inside sealed in a plastic bag. A rubber cap protects the mouthpiece. Users can replace it to keep the unit clean while not in use.

To start vaping, simply remove the unit from the packaging, remove the cap, and take a pull. The automatic pull-activated design eliminates the need to press buttons to get the unit to fire and produce vapor. The tip-mounted indicator lights up to let the user know it is active. The unit comes pre-charged. It does not need or come with a charger. It also comes charged with one of the five classic Blu flavors. There is no need to deal with messy filling and refilling procedures.

The Blu disposable comes equipped with enough vape juice and battery charge to last for up to 400 puffs. This might decrease depending on how full of a puff the user takes. Once depleted, users can throw the device away and start on a new one.

Flavors of Blu E-Cigs

Blu Disposable e-cigarettes come in five flavors. It is such flavors:

  • Menthol
  • Cherry
  • Vanilla
  • Polar Mint
  • Classic Tobacco

Vapers can choose from either classic cigarette-like flavors or something less like Tobacco. The company’s cigarette-like flavors have a very authentic taste. Traditional Tobacco tastes very much like a regular cigarette. Especially when using the stronger 4.5-percent-nicotine version.


Blu offers its classic Menthol and Polar Mint flavors. It is great for vapers who prefer menthol- and mint-flavored vapes. The Menthol tastes like traditional menthol cigarettes. Polar Mint spices it up a bit with a touch of spearmint.

Finally, vapers who want something sweeter can choose Vivid Vanilla or Cherry Crush. The former is smooth and creamy but not too sweet. It makes vaping more refreshing with fruity notes.

Other Alternatives on the Market

The NJOY Daily has been Blu’s biggest competitor since the company is one of the first started selling e-cigarettes. Being cheaper, the NJOY Daily makes up for the less-premium vaping experience with a wider selection of flavors and nicotine strengths of up to 6 percent. Besides, unlike the Blu, these disposables last only up to 300 puffs.


The Veppo Disposable Cigarette comes in at roughly the same price point as the Blu e cigs. But, unlike its Blu or NJOY counterparts, it does not offer as many options. The Veppo Electronic Cigarette also comes only in two flavors: Tobacco and menthol.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.

    The disposable Blu vapes do not deliver enough vapor in a puff. I find they don’t work but for more than 10 or twenty very light puffs. The Blu vapes with refill pods are great. However I find they frequently leak.

    hurts my throat and the flavors are insufferable, not to mention there barely seems to be any nicotine. I couldnt feel the nicotine at all.

    I just bought my first one and this shit stings the throat bad. Maybe it’s just a faulty one but I’ve been vaping nic for years now and this Blu is far from smooth.

      Hi Sean, thanks for the feedback. Disposable e-cigs like Blu are made for resembling cigarettes with a higher throat hit and stealth vapor. For smoother vapor, I can recommend choosing higher VG ratio products. If you’d like to get something disposable the Mojo or ePuffer XPOD with their 50/50 PG/VG ratio might be a great choice.

    I have had 4Blu pod packs that I wasted money on. Two of them the pods were leaking and the other ones worked for a few minutes and then just stopped. Looks like they have an air bubble or something in the. The website is no help unless you have an account with them and s credit or debit card.

    First one. Taste good, smooth with a clean draw and short but satisfying exhale that’s visually reaffirms the your (action, intent, gradifaction, pleasure, sensation, senses, etc…that your smoking/vaping) is reward with Aahhhh. Best way to put it…I’m down, but the cost 15.00 bucks a piece in San Francisco. Yo, Mr. Bickford hook a brother up with a 6pk…Ya know 1 of each Flavor….Go DUKE!
