AltSmoke Nano 510 Clearomizer vs. CE3 for Blu Batteries?
So I'm getting tired of the poor performing blu cartomizers (yes yes, another vaping noob that bought the "easy" kit ), and I'm looking to just do something different with my blu batteries for now. I have 4 batteries atm since I bought the old kit about a year ago, then the new starter kit that holds 3 cartos thinking it might be a bit easier to charge the batteries since I wouldn't have to watch for that stupid blue light to turn off. So 2 PCCs, 4 batteries.
So what I've been able to find is that I have 2 choices for clearomizers, short of getting blank cartos (which I don't like). First I was looking at these Nano 510 Clearomizers, which seem like a pretty solid and easy choice for a new vaper. But I hear they are only 1.8 ohm, and I should be looking more for 3 ohm for my blu batteries? Not sure if that is correct or not.
The other choice seems to be the CE3 bottom coil cartomizers. Thing is I can't seem to find any info on what the resistance is on these.
In all, I've heard that both will "work" at least for a time until the blu batteries crap out, which I am fine with. Within the next month or two I plan on picking up a Halo Triton (that thing is about the holy grail for me right now), I just can't afford it right now.
So I guess my question is... which should I get? I don't care which is easier to fill. I'm more concerned with performance, flavor, and overall functionality, at least in the limited scope of my blu batteries.
Well it took all of 20 minutes for this post to fly off the 1st page, so went about doing a few hours more research without actually finding anything useful to my situation. So either I let this post die off, or bump it and pay the consequences.
Sorry mods. Going to bump it for the early morning crowd and hope I get some input. If not, guess I'll be doing even more research or just forgoing any changes to my blu setup and just wait another month or two and get a Triton.
Hi Ryuukon and welcome to ECF.
I recommend either the Vision Nano or Kanger T4 510 threaded.
Hello Katya, thanks for your reply.

I believe the blu is a 510 thread and will fit either of those, no adapter needed
I have a nano from altsmoke. I measured it and it's 1.8 ohms.
I like the nano and use it for my occasionally used bittersweet chocolate. It works well even with a low ego battery. Haven't tried the CE3.
Yeah the blu is a 510 battery, but from what I've heard it uses a different polarity, though I guess that might only be the PCC and not the batteries themselves. But I have heard about a 510-to-eGo adapter, just not sure if it was something I needed to worry about.

Time to order!
You are correct--the Blu chargers (and PCC) can't be used with standard 510 gear, and vice versa, but atomizers and not affected by polarity issues. Any 510 threaded carto/clearo can be safely used on a Blu battery.

Unfortunately, I don't think your problem is the Blu carts. You should try a Blu cart on a different battery, you will be surprised - and yes, they work on standard ego batteries. The carts are made by Johnson Creek. The batteries are your problem. Blu batts are known for not putting out what they say/should. Seriously, try a different batt, and then go from there. Had friend who did the exact same thing, once he tried a different battery he moved on and never looked back.
