The MyBlu starter kit offers a solid vaping experience in a compact, elegant unit. Simply insert one of the 1.5 mL liquid pods and start vaping from this easy-to-use device. The 350mAh battery lasts up to 400 or more pulls and charges in only 20 minutes via USB.

Vapers looking for a slim, discreet pod mod that provides a satisfying draw and excellent flavor might find the MyBlu a strong contender at a low price point.

The MyBlu marks famed e-cigarette maker Blu’s entry into the pod-based vaping market. Perhaps buoyed by the success of other pod-based vaping systems, such as the ever-popular Juul, the MyBlu delivers a similar experience at a fraction of the cost. The starter kit comes with one pre-charged MyBlu device, one Gold Leaf 2.4% nicotine tobacco-flavored liquid pod, and a USB charger.

The MyBlu starter kit is convenient, and it is ready to use in minutes. To start vaping, users need only to slot an e-liquid-filled pod into the slot at the top of the device. Pushing it all the way in, the pod secures into place with a satisfying click. With the pod in, vapers need only to take a draw on the mouthpiece to activate the vape mod.

The MyBlu requires very little maintenance over its lifetime. Its low cost makes it relatively inexpensive to replace the product if it ever dies, though it is very durable. Aside from regularly charging the device to keep the battery topped up, users do not need to do much else to keep it in peak condition. The pods, which come equipped with the mouthpiece, tank, and other components, are disposable, eliminating the need for messy refills.

Discreet Design of the MyBlu While Providing a Strong Draw

Myblu Starter Kit
The MyBlu is designed for ease-of-use, which makes it perfect for beginners. The elegant, slim design offers discreet vaping and is small enough to carry in a shirt or pants pocket. It is easy to hold and the perfect size to travel anywhere a vaper might go.

Despite its compact appearance, the MyBlu offers an impressive amount of vapor with an unimpeded airflow, delivering a satisfying experience. Lightweight but solid, the MyBlu is built to last and designed to please.

The MyBlu provides a consistent vaping experience every time. With each draw, vapers get a significant amount of vapor, comparable to more expensive vaporizers on the market. Vapers will not have to worry about dry hits with this unit.

Long-Lasting, Quick-Charging Battery of the MyBlue

Myblu Starter Kit Review
The MyBlu’s battery sets it apart from much of its competition. No one enjoys having to wait a long time for their device to charge, and with the MyBlu starter kit vapers do not have to. Not only does the battery last a long time but it can be fully charged from a completely drained state in only 20 minutes.

A discreet blue LED light at the bottom of the unit activates when taking a draw through the mouthpiece. This light turns orange to let vapers know when the battery needs recharging. The unit charges using the included USB charger. It is important to note that vapers should not use the MyBlu device while it is charging.

MyBlu Starter Kit: Switch Flavors With a Click

Myblu Pods
The convenient one-click system on the MyBlu starter kit allows vapers to switch flavors in seconds. The unit uses pods that slide into a slot on top of the device. They snap tightly into place with an audible click, providing a clear signal that they are fitted correctly.

MyBlu offers many different flavor options to suit a variety of tastes, including cherry, mint, vanilla, etc., so vapers can switch to a different flavor if they ever get bored with their favorite. The rich, robust flavors offer a non-irritating, smooth draw. The 1.5 mL capacity of each liquid pod vape lasts through at least two charging cycles, so if vapers find a favorite flavor, they will not have to worry about changing it too frequently.

Stacking up the Competition

Phix Vape

Phix Vape

The Phix Vape comes in a kit similar to the MyBlu starter kit, and the device itself also uses a pod system. While it is similar in terms of portability and design, many users find the draw to be weaker with the Phix than the MyBlu. The 280 mAh battery provides decent battery life, although it may need to be charged sooner than the MyBlu and takes about 30-40 minutes to charge. Overall, the Phix Vape offers a solid competition to the MyBlu with a few notable flaws.

OVNS Saber

Ovns Saber
The OVNS Saber offers a decent vaping experience for users who want a bulk-free device they can carry with them, but it does have its drawbacks. The multicolored flashing indicator lights on the Saber may not give an accurate measure of the unit’s battery life, and they make the unit a little less discreet. Unlike the fast charging of the MyBlu and the Phix Vape, the OVNS Saber takes up to two hours to reach a full charge.

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.
