The Blu Plus+ ™ Xpress Kit has several features that are packed into one e-cigarette smaller than a pen. It has an improved battery that can be used for two hours before it needs to be recharged.

The device has a light at the end of it that lets the user know the battery’s power levels. The vapor and flavor come out of a pre-filled tank with various nicotine concentrations. The tanks can be thrown out once they are depleted. They are non-refillable. The Blu Plus Xpress Kit is a good buy for those looking for an affordable alternative to cigarettes and high-end vapes.

The Blu Plus+™ Xpress Kit’s Features

The Blu Plus Xpress Kit combines all of the features of the Blu Plus Starter Kit into a compact kit that lets vapers get started immediately. The Blu Plus is the size of a disposable cigarette, but it has all of the features of a starter kit, making it incredibly ergonomic and portable. This little device can fit inside a pocket or purse, and the user will not even notice it is there. This feature makes it great for brief outings.

The Blu Plus has a very tight draw, similar to that of a cigarette, so it should be an excellent e-cigarette for those used to smoking. Thanks to the improved mouthpiece and the upgraded tank system, there is more vapor production than with their previous models. While there is slightly more vapor production, keep in mind that this is not an RDA/RTA mod. Cloud chasers will be disappointed. This is a device made for those looking to get discrete nicotine hits.

Another useful feature of this device is its lithium-ion battery, which can last twice as long between charges as do the batteries for other models. The battery has an LED light to let users know when it is fully charged and when it is running low. It can be easily recharged with the USB cable that comes in the kit.

People who have never used these before will be surprised by the cartridges. There are several tasty tobacco flavors, plus each cartridge lasts quite a long time, making them a more economical alternative to cigarettes and other e-cigarette cartridges.

What Comes with the Blu Plus+™ Xpress Kit?

The kit arrives with everything someone needs to get started vaping. It comes with one Blu Plus+ ™ battery, a Blu Plus+ ™ USB charger that can be plugged into a computer or portable charger, and one non-refillable Classic Tobacco Blu Plus+ ™ Tank that has a nicotine concentration of 2.4 percent.\

Internal Building Quality and Design

The device holds together pretty well. There are not a bunch of small parts, so there are fewer things that can go wrong. Its small size makes it great for stealthy and discreet vaping, making it easier to use at work or in groups of people.

Blu Plus Xpress Kit Charging

The USB charger is cordless, so to charge it, stick into a computer USB port as if it were a thumb drive. It will take around 40 minutes to charge. The light at the end of the battery stick will glow blue while it is charging. The light stops glowing when the charging cycle is complete.

Those who want it to charge more quickly should buy a charger that plugs into the wall. Be sure that the outlet puts out 120 volts. Do not use a charger for which the device is not intended. Use only Blu wall chargers and their universal car chargers.

How Long Does the Battery Last?

The battery lasts for around two hours, depending on how heavily it is used. This might not seem like a lot to those used to pod and box mods, but for a device this size, that is pretty good battery life. Users who are going to be out and about a lot should buy a portable external battery.

How Well Will My Blu Plus+™ Xpress Kit Tank Work?

The tanks are very economical, lasting each user 550 puffs. Considering that a person takes seven drags off of a cigarette, buying one Blu Plus cartridge is like buying around 80 cigarettes.

For just $14.99, a user can buy a back of three Blu Plus cartridges that comes in several flavors. Choose from among their traditional tobacco flavor, cherry, pina colada, peach schnapps, menthol, blueberry, Carolina Bold, and Vivid Vanilla. The flavor selection might be limited, but this is offset by the amount of money saved by vaping these devices as opposed to smoking cigarettes.

The Blu Plus+ ™ Xpress Kit and How to Use It

The Blu Plus Xpress Kit is easy to use. Once it is out of the box, make sure that it is charged. To charge it, plug it into a laptop or wall charger with a USB plug-in. It should be fully charged within 30 to 40 minutes.

It should arrive half charged, but for the best results, plug it in until it is fully powered. Once it is charged, slide the cartridge in. It is not refillable.

To activate it, take a slow and deep draw. The end of the battery will glow blue when the vapor is inhaled. If a deep drag is made, the light will flash 15 times, and then it will deactivate so it can reset. When the battery blinks 30 times, it needs to be recharged.

Reading the Blu Plus+™ Xpress Kit Instructions

Blu has written and published a PDF manual that covers everything a user needs to know about the Blu Xpress Kit. It is well written and organized, and the writing style is such that any person will be able to read and understand it. Be sure to read the Blu Plus+ ™ Xpress Kit manual before firing it up. Most mishaps and other problems can be corrected or avoided by reading the user manual.

Where Can I Get the Blu Plus+™ Xpress Kit?

The first place to look for the Blu Plus is online. They are easily found in many online stores. People who prefer shopping outside of cyberspace can try going to a Walgreens or a gas station for a Blu Plus Xpress Kit.

Who Are Its Competitors?

Juul is one of the leading competitors of Juul, and the Blu Pro is another device produced by Blu that is popular with users. The Blu Plus has many similarities to these devices.

Blu Plus vs. Juul

The Juul and the Blue Plus are both simple devices that are portable and ergonomically designed, but there are several differences. The Blu Plus charges more quickly than the Juul, which takes nearly an hour to charge. It is also significantly less expensive than the Juul, which is $49.99.

The Blu Plus costs $11.99, and their spare cartridges cost $14.99. The Juul, however, has a battery that can last up to a day or the life of the pod depending on how long it is used. People who want a device with better battery life should go with Juul, but those who want something economical and affordable should choose the Blu Plus.

Blu Plus vs. Blu Pro

The Blu Plus and the Pro are both small devices that are easy to carry around and are affordable. They also have LED battery indicators, and they are both USB chargeable. The Pro, however, has a more comfortable mouthpiece that is more ergonomically designed than that of the Blu Plus.

Another key difference is that the Blu Pro’s USB charger comes with a cable and the Blu Plus’s charger does not. This makes it less likely that the Pro’s charger will break if someone bumps it or if something falls on it. Finally, the Blu Pro is refillable.
