    When I got the blu I wasn't pleased. But I did like the pcc and the concept. However now I love the blu. What I did was put an m801 atty and cart on a blu battery and it fit nearly flush, like within a business card thickness. The m801 atty has a lower bridge and this seems to either wick faster or burn hotter, not sure but the vapor production is consistant for 90% of the life of the cart. I've posted this little fact so many times only because I've been there and I know that you're half way to a awesome little ecig. nd vaporcloudz seem to be the only ones selling the m801 attys and litecig is the only one selling m801 carts, although I suspect m801 carts are the same as m401 carts. So for 17$ you get two attys and 5 carts. Just my opinion but 17$ is a lot less than buying a whole new ecig kit. And in the end you get all the style and convience of the blu but with the preformance of an m401 (easier draw too!)

    Not a bad idea! Thanks so much for the informative info!!!!! ><

    Also, I dunno how many times this link may or may not have been posted in the forum already, but a quick vid on YouTube visualizing how to rinse and refill Blu carts: "How to refill the blu cigs carts". And if you search that, I'm sure you'll see tons of other videos up as well.

    I followed the advice of some on here and I got my M801 atomizer today and attached it to my Volcano/Blu Battery. I dripped on the atomizer and the result is nothing short of amazing. Lots of Vaper. Flavor, Throat hit, the works! Its all there. And not to mention I can pull like I do on an analog and get throat hit and vapor. I don't need to draw for a long period of time to get it. I just pull for the amount of time like a I do an analog and presto. However the draw is a little tight, its not really an issue since its starting to loosen up. The atomizer is breaking in but I tend to like the tighter draw anyway.

    does it fit in the pcc with the m801 cart attached?

    510 attys are also compatible but dont fit in the pcc

    It sure does fit, very nicely. I also like the carts that come with the M801 atomizer as they look very much like a real cig filter. However I have noticed that the carts for blu/volcano do not fit well on the m801 atomizer for some unknown reason since the atomizer appears to fit like a glove for everything other part. But like i said that doesn't matter much since I prefer the 801 carts more anyway.

    Why? Is it a problem with the L88b or the Blu company specifically. I didn't go with Blu because I'm impatient and didn't feel like waiting a week or two. I went with Volcano which sold an identical L88b model as Blu's, just minus the blue led.

    I love my L88b and use it exclusively. I just picked up a 510 titan USB passthrough from TW which has been working extremely well (Volcano cart and atty with the 510 PT).

    Glad to know someone else was impatient with Blu and went with the Volcano as well! I'm expecting mine tomorrow and hope that I didn't make a mistake as there seems to be so many inconsistencies and different opinions about the blu/volcano. I guess everyone is different and uses a different technique...or something like that. I'll guess I'll find out over the next week or so.

    I love my little L88b! I have a Silver Bullet that I use at home, but the Volcano is what I carry around with me. It works great for me, and dripping a couple drops on either side of the atty bridge gives me vapor on par with my 510 at 3.7 volts. I say, forget the carts, the cart mods, and all that jazz. Dripping works the best, and it's simple, so long as you don't over do it. Two drops is sufficient.
    Lot's of people will tell you the L88b is garbage, and everyone is entitled to their opinion.
    I think that it is a great little pv. I used it to quit smoking for God's sake! It's small in size like a regular cig, the battery life isn't great, but the PCC makes up for it. Treat it right, and IMHO, it works like a champ!

    Just wanted to thank hxj for his posts in this forum and Blu discussions. I'm still waiting on the Blu, but it at least seems reasonable that I can get off analogs with it.

    Hxj, what liquid are you using (not to mention carts and atty)?

    I would recommend that anyone who gets a Blu and really wants to quit should buy a backup pv due to all of the issues with the L88. I personally have a bunch of friends who were unable to quit because they were inadequately prepared, i.e. their Blu stopped working, wasn't strong enough, etc. etc. and they didn't purchase a backup.

    It's a decent intro unit into the world of vaping, but it's not a replacement for a higher-quality unit such as an original dse901 or a 510. Plus, the higher-quality pv's are often much cheaper in cost than the Blu, for which you're pretty much paying for the nice packaging. $35 to $40 should be more than enough for a good backup.

    Good luck to all who are trying to quit! It's totally worth the effort in the long run, IMO.

    Right now my Pack is carrying carts loaded with:

    1) Decadent Vapours all-VG Absinthe
    2) Decadent Vapours all-VG Parma Violet
    3) Decadent Vapours all-VG Habana Reserve
    4) Intellicig ECOpure Rich
    5) Intellicig ECOpure Menthol
    6) My own Shirley Temple mix

    And sometimes I sub in a few others I've been messing with, including an eggnog, a pineapple-coconut, and a Captain Black-style concoction.

    For atomizers, I'm using mostly L88b ones from blu and Volcano, with a couple of 306A ones in the mix (though I don't find they work much better-- maybe a little, and they certainly get hotter). For carts, mostly 306A ones, plus some original blu ones, all using PET from Lipton Pyramid tea bags as filler.

    I occasionally use a Revolver Elite (with both the standard M40x carts and modified 306A carts), but while I do like it, I find I'm getting overall better results with the L88b. That might just be a learning-curve issue, though, and I certainly haven't given up on it because I LOVE the size and the PCC.

    I also have a 510 and almost never touch it. It's been relegated to emergency back-up status.

    Appreciate the info. I plan on purchasing some atomizers and another battery or two immediately. I've done enough reading on forums to realize that backups are necessary to successfully quit.

    Hxj, thanks for your info as well. I'll look into the Decadent Vapours soon. I'm going to order some Johnson Creek liquid to see what that does for flavor. I keep seeing mixed reviews, but for the most part looks good and it's local so shipping should be less of an issue. I'm also looking forward to the PTB mod (as soon as I get the Blu and drain a few carts).

    I've found that I carry my Blu with me when I'm out. I get good vapor with it. I've found that after some puffs, I push the inner cart a little closer to the atty from the bottom of the cart and it continues to produce good vapor in with heavy use.
