    If you don't feel like watching the whole video this is what sticks in my mind.
    May 14th release
    $59.95
    I think around $10 for 5 empty cartos, $15 for prefilled. 1ml capacity.
    3.7 unregulated PT batteries, 650mah.

    (Sorry if this isn't the right place, mods. I couldn't figure where else it would go.)

    cartos are 1.75ohm and horizontal coil

    JC also released a Rainier cherry flavor in their Red Oak line, not sure if it come close to the much-loved Cherry Crush that they make for Blu?

    Bang for the buck this will be a big winner in the 3.7v market!

    I'm approaching it with skepticism.
    I'm going to try the cartos (and hopefully a cone) with my Joyetech batteries before jumping to get a full kit.
    Compared to the Joyetech PT eGo kits it is more bang for the buck.
    But for me personally I need interchangeability with Joyetech eGo parts to avoid having to buy a whole new slew of backup parts.

    I wonder how Blu (Oops! I mean Lorillard) feels about this.
    Damn, this is all getting really interesting.

    My guess,
    1) They don't care because it's a different class (mini vs mid).
    2) They care from the aspect of watching to see how it does to see if it's worth coming up with their own mid size.

    I don't think they look at JC as being competition or they wouldn't tell people they use JC juice. That alone is a direct hit to their bottom line with people figuring out they can refill or buy other 510 attys/cartos.

    I think if they cared about the Vea they'd already have their own mid size. It's not like it's a revolutionary entry into the e-cig market.

    I also don't imagine JC will be removing their link to Blu's website or Blu will be removing the mentions of JC on theirs.

    The kit comes with 2 batteries, for those interested. I'm very excited about this. It seems they did spend a considerable amount of time researching the carto tech they've come up with. I've tried so many carts and am interested to see what they've done; it sounds promising, but we'll see what they're really like.

    I also like how they're not using the crappy paint that comes on many of the eGo type batts, always gets scratched so I've stuck with silver as it holds up the best.

    Got my Vea, blank Vea carts, and some new JC juice Thursday. I love it! Mind you, it's not like some revolutionary design or anything, but I'm very happy with the hardware (time will tell how the soft coating holds up, but it's very classy feeling) and the carts; quick, even heat and the easy-off tip for topping off beats the paper clip I'd been using for some time.

    I will definitely be recommending it to any newbies I run across.

    Might check out their cartos and see how they compare with resurrectors.
