    The Blu Premium 100 is actually great.
    I use it when out. It's worth the extra money.
    Impossible to overcharge the batteries or PCC.
    One year warranty and emergency refills at Walgreens.
    I buy my refills now from Jet Cigs.
    The quality of flavors are amazing.

    Volcano is discontinuing their filled cartomizers.
    Bought a bunch on clearance and they totally suck.
    Volcano batteries are exactly the same as Blu originals.
    Magma is similar to the Premium 100.
    Volcano customer service, took forever to fix a simple issue.
    Glad I didn't buy one of their starter kits.

    Halo is very highly rated.
    Don't know anything about their cartos or support.
    I use the Johnson Creek Vea at home.
    If you think your V2 is bulky. Well you know...

    If you want something discreet I suggest the e-roll too, looks like some kind of apple device. However, if you want to vape more volume wise, and not worry about a PCC I'd say go for the Vea by Johnson Creek. Other eGo kits too if you want to try something besides cartomizers. Plenty of sites have great deals on them. My vote really goes out to the Vea for going out, but I do have to pick thinner juice (no 100% VG), I have the e-roll but I constantly have to keep popping it back in the case, and of course it only holds one battery. To charge, you also have to have it completely assembled, (can skip the atomizer though if you're just charging). The e-Roll kit only has 1 cone, so if you pick that, get another cone so that you can have two full setups.

    The eRoll is very popular. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm saving up for it.

    I would suggest the Sidesho by Modern Vapor. Same diameter as the original Blu, but it's a 180 mAh battery. Also, unlike most other super minis, they sell blank cartomizers as well so you're not stuck with a flavor you may dislike. If you decide to get it, it's cheaper to part everything out.

    Good luck.

    I would consider the Halo G6.
    I'm ordering the Halo Triton this week.
    Want something that's easy to refill, and has better prefilled options than the Vea.
    Halo seems to offer the most versatile cigalike.
    They have a mini tank system and refillable cartos.
    People say the batteries last longer than other minis.
    Their juice is US made. Prefilled cartos are fairly priced.
    Their high nicotine is 24mg.

    Starter kit is less than $50. Includes 2 batteries, a pack of prefilleds, chargers, carrying case & 2 blanks.
    The only thing that sucks is their warranty.
    60 days, compared to a year for Blu, or 6 months for Johnson Creek.
    They must really have faith in their batteries!

    I wanted to add that I picked up a starter Kit today from Jet and it is "very" similar to the blu cigs...

    the batteries are a little longer, perhaps 1/4 inch... but are the same diameter and are 510 compatible.. so your cartos will work. their kit comes with two batteries and a usb carger.

    unfortunately, due to their length.. they will not fit in the portable charger box thingy.

    but i'm liking it so far!

    Although a PCC is not an accessory, I would recommend the Halo G6. Much better battery than blu, and although you can start as easy as you want with prefilled cartomizers, you can step up to manual batteries, fill your own cartomizers, and even a decent little clearomizer. You can even stay with Halo and move up to their Triton system.

    The biggest benefit is that you keep this simple with Halo, or they have the other gear that you can grow with as you go along.

    I also use the Jet kit as a backup.
    The white light is cool for stealth vaping.
    Believe the batteries are 180 mah.
    Tried the same thing with the Volcano PCC.
    They were just too long to fit.
    Excanged it for a bag on Volcano coffee.
    Polarity is reversed just like Blu & Volcano.
    If you try to charge them on 510 chargers they will fry.

    For $15 with the discount code.
    It's an awesome deal.
    But not a primary system.
    The batteries are light and easily scratched.
    Vapor production is decent for a mini.
    I've also tried their juice. It's delicious in my Vea.

    For an all in one system.
    I recommend the Halo G6.
    The main disadvantage of Blu batteries.
    Is that they aren't sealed and are automatic.
    Halo makes it easy to refilll. Their battery options are great.
    If money isn't an issue.
    I would buy both the G6 and the Triton.
    It's nice to have a larger PV at home.

    For every one positve review I have read on the Blu, I have easily read 100 negative reviews. So just about any model is better. If it must be a tiny stick battery model, the Volt by smokeless image is probably the best reviewed in that category from a performance standpoint.

    You could also get a PV with an 1000+ mAh battery and not have to carry around a charging pack at all.

    Use the Blu cig cartridges on a manual joye 510 batter. Lots of vapor and still cigarette size.

    Well, one of the companies I started out with (besides Blu) was SmokeTip. As far as getting an affordable PCC, I haven't seen anyone else sell them for less. Last I checked, they still sell them for around 19 bucks. They also sell black batteries with the blue led you like. I had ONE bad ordering experience with them, but their stuff was pretty reliable.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I want the Blu experience without using Blu. I have narrowed my search down to Modern Vapor Slidesho and Volcano. I may end up getting the Sidesho and then getting the Volcano later.

    Halo is having their spring sale soon.
    Last year it was 15% off everything.
    You can get a G6 kit for around $40 shipped.
    I'll pick one up myself at that price.
    Going to wait to buy the Triton then too.

    Volcano stuff is overpriced.
    Wait until they have their next sale.
    I use their power bank to charge my phone.
    Their prefilled cartos suck; but their coffee is delicious!
