    What's the point in getting a Blu over a generic KR808?

    Are there any electronic differences, or are you paying for the brand? Just curious- I've owned a KR808 generic and noticed little difference between it and a blu.

    Heh. Not gonna lie, the blue LED on black looks pretty damn cool. I'm over the whole Analog-style e-cigs thing. I started out with those, now I've moved on to more advanced models. Not putting anyone down or anything, if you prefer Blus vape on!

    One major downside to ego-style vapes:
    -Police tend to think they're something other than e-cigs. I've had a couple encounters with police being very curious about the vape pen sitting in my cupholder >.>

    the only reason i got them was because i didnt think i could do the thing with ego and tanks, it was confusing and this was already put together and it felt more like an analog

    From what I understand the polarity is reversed on Blu batteries Di you cannot charge them using anything but a Blu charger.

    As for why.. readily available. Refills can be bought in most gas stations and several other stores. The PCC is small and handy... same size as a cigarette pack and the Blu cigs feel more like an analog than anything else.

    While they are certainly limited and not the best way to vape, they make for a good "gateway" device to get people interested in vaping.

    Just my 2.

    I've either talked with and/or introduced about 30+ law enforcement personnel to vaping. The police know what vaping is. In fact, due to posts like this, I asked 5 - 6 different police personnel if they are concerned when they see someone vaping on an ego or Provari or Vamo and they all justed laughed. One told me only rent-a-cop would be dumb enough not to know about the many different types of PV's.

    I could see this varying greatly by location though. In areas where vaping is just getting popular, not many people know what it is and ask "what's that thing?" I could see that happening with cops around here for sure.. but now that we have a few vape shops opening up maybe that won't be an issue.

    I always fear about people hearing that folks are using them to smoke ......... and assuming that's what I'm doing.. Lol
