    Default Disposable Blu: How long does it actually last?

    im on the last step of the nicoderm patch but last time, when it was time to quit, i still couldnt. so, i bought an e-cig. my plan is to hit it only a couple times a day.

    the box says that you get 400 puffs out of it. but, in an extreme example, what if i only want to hit it 1 time per day? it cant possibly last 400 days, can it?

    Unfortunately, no. The problem is that the battery in those units don't last. There's still liquid but no battery. I would recommend buying one of their rechargeable batteries, a charger, and cartridges if you want to go this route (as opposed to getting an ego, for example). You will save a lot in the long run. One disposable is around $10. You can get the rechargeable one in the config I mentioned for about $40 with 5 cartridges. And with these, you will be able to use up the whole cartridge which on average lasts about 3 days.

    Edit* But I guess getting a rechargeable one may not help you quit.

    For me... about a 1/3 of a day. I wasn't trying to give up nicotine though, just cigarettes (same as most people here).

    The blu disposables that I had (got 2) I would say lasted about 3-4 days. Maybe another way to gauge how long it will last you is in terms of how many cigarettes equivalent.

    I used mine mostly on my way to and from work, which worked out to 6 cigs a day, and then a few drags here and there (probably worth 1 cig a day). So for three days, I guess it lasted about pack to a pack and a half.

    They lasted about a day for me. I was a pack and a half a day smoker, the the Blu disposables were my on ramp to giving up my cancer sticks and joining the wonderful world of vaping.

    A big problem is that you don't know how long it's been sitting on the shelves at the store. I bought an njoy once and it lasted one day...and I barely used it.

    If you want e-cigs to help you to quit smoking there is no sense in trying to minimize e-cig usage. It will not work that way. Moreover, the goal should be to maximize their usage, I mean to use them as often as you want. That is the way to success. Your goal should be to quit smoking not to get rid of nicotine, at least initially. After you forget what tobacco cigarettes are and why people smoke you will be able to decide if you wish to quit getting nicotine, lower its consumption or vape forever.

    i wrote to the blu customer service. this is what they said:

    Thank you for contacting us.
    In theory if you hit it once a day it should last about 400 days. This being said the battery is only good for about 1 year. AS far as smoke time it only has about 2 hours of smoke time on the battery. Meaning if you smoked it for 10 minutes and didn't touch it for 6 months it would still have a bout 1hr and 50 minutes left on it. Also if you take huge drags on it this will drain the battery faster. It does say approximately 400 puffs. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day.
    Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

    great answer. and they wrote back to me in about 12 hours.

    if my ecig lasts this long, and i can hit it only a few times (more likely, a dozen) a day for a month or two then i am pretty excited!
