Thanksgiving: What blu Is Thankful For This Year

Thanksgiving: What blu Is Thankful For_Blog_Header Image | blu

The holiday season is finally upon us, and that means that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. There’s plenty that we’re all thankful for every day, and to give you a closer look at what we’re about at blu, we asked some our team to tell us what they’re most thankful for this year.

Sara Thompson, Lab Assistant

“I am thankful for my mother. There is never a time when I do not need her. No matter how many times I say I love her it is never enough. I am so grateful for her support and comfort when I need it the most. She is my rock, the one I go to when times are hard, and the one I get the best advice from. I wouldn’t be who I am today without her by my side.”

Jocquelyn Davis, Retail Specialist

“I am thankful for my new daughter-in law-Cristina!! I have known Crissy for years and she has been dear to me. When my son proposed to her, I was so very happy that he finally got the one that was right for him…and me haha. Crissy has brought a certain happiness to our family.

“When she calls me Mom I just smile because it is so endearing to hear that from her, it sounds just right coming from her. Even the team is aware of how close we are and refer to me as her Mom!! So this Thanksgiving I am celebrating with my son and his new wife, my new daughter, Cristina Davis.”

Julie Walters, Marketing Activation Manager

“In April of this year I went to a dog adoption event with the intent of ‘just looking’. All of the dogs were very excited, jumping around and barking but I spotted one little guy straight chilling off to the side, just observing the chaos. I went over to him to say hi and he came up to me, sat on my feet, and made it clear that I was not leaving without him.

“I went there looking for a senior, medium sized dog and I left with a one-year-old, 10 pound Pomeranian mix. He was already responding to the name “E” but taking into account his mellow, easy going nature, he became ‘Eazy-E’. He’s my world and has become somewhat of a blu mascot, hanging out on the window sill in Marketing, watching over the hood and providing cuddles when needed. There is nothing I am more thankful for in 2017 than my son, Eazy-E.”

PJ Moffett, Global Logistics Manager

“I am thankful for the health of myself, my family and my friends. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Even Wayne Jones who is Australian and doesn’t celebrate it.”

Ryan Coalson, Director of Operations

“For two happy and well-adjusted children. With all that is happening in the world, these two continue to thrive, love one another and to be caring members of society. I often hear comments about ‘today’s children’, but my experience with my kids and their friends has been nothing but positive. I am thankful for the adults that they are becoming, that I don’t go about in worry for their future and excited to see where they are headed.”

Morgan Tucker, Global Consumer Insights Manager

“Regardless of how my future turns out, I’m thankful for the opportunity to be part of blu and getting to know the good people here.”

The Must Have Accessories Every Vaper Needs

Best Vaping Accessories_Vaping Tips_Blog_Header Image | blu

While there are some accessories available from blu to help you improve your vaping experience, there will still be some vapers looking for more ways to enhance the way they vape. To help out, we’ve put together a list of some of the must-have vaping accessories and how they can be used to take your vape to the next level!

Microfiber Cloths

Microfiber cloths may not seem like a logical accessory for e-cig users to have, but they are arguably the most important. Usually used for cleaning screens or lenses, microfiber cloths are the perfect way to keep your e-cigarette as clean as possible.

Microfiber cloths have much finer fibers compared to regular cloths, and this means that they won’t leave behind anywhere near as much dust or lint. Given that excess dust is often part of the reason for an e-cig battery not working, having a microfiber cloth handy is a really good way of keeping your battery in good working condition.

The majority of microfiber cloths are reasonably cheap and can be bought in bulk online, so there’s no reason not to have a few stashed around the house or at work to keep your e-cig in good condition.

Portable USB Chargers

The lifesaver of any frequent festival-goer, portable USB chargers could prove very handy if you find your e-cig is running out of charge on a regular basis. While the blu PLUS+™ Rechargeable Kit comes with a case that will charge your e-cigs on the go, those who use the Xpress Kit or the blu PRO™ may need to find a different way of keeping their e-cigarette’s battery charged.

Most portable USB chargers can be charged in just a couple of hours and can then be plugged into your e-cig using it’s USB charging cable. Whilst we would recommend charging your e-cig from a laptop or wall outlet whenever possible, having a portable USB charger can serve as a good back-up if you’re out for a few hours.

Another way of charging your e-cig similar to this is to use a car charger which will plug into the outlet on the car’s dashboard before plugging into your e-cig’s USB charging cable. This can be useful if you forget to charge your e-cig and want to get it fully charged on the way to work.   

Silicone Mat

When you’re taking apart your e-cigarette, you might find that it’s hard to keep all the parts in one place, especially if you’re vaping something larger like the blu PRO™. To help keep all the different parts of the e-cigarette in one place, a lot of vapers use small silicon mats when taking their device apart.

The silicon in the mat means that the parts won’t roll around, making it easier for you when you’re filling or cleaning your e-cig. There are some available with raised edges to make extra sure your stuff stays in place and there are others than have deeper indentations allowing you to stand the parts of your e-cigarette up which could be especially helpful when refilling. A silicone mat could also be useful if you like to vape in the car but worry about dropping your e-cig on the floor.

Extra Batteries

You can only plan so far ahead, and even the most prepared of vapers will find themselves in a jam with a battery that’s out of charge. Ultimately the best accessory any vaper can carry with them is an extra battery or two as this way you can avoid waiting to recharge your battery once it runs out and keep on vaping!

Changes To blu Packaging In 2018

Changes To blu Packaging_Blog_Header Image | blu

We like to make sure that we always keep you in the loop with all things blu. So around the end of February 2018, keep an eye out for a few changes we’ll be making to our packaging in order to remain in compliance with recent FDA packaging requirements.

Don’t worry! None of these changes will affect the quality or function of the product we provide as the changes will only apply to the packaging and not our e-cigarettes.

You will notice these changes on certain blu® products in the following ways:

  • All blu® packaging and advertising will bear the following required warning statement: “WARNING: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.”
  • We’ll be selling our blu PLUS+™ Xpress Kit in a new, paper box similar to our current disposables packaging so the aforementioned label cannot be removed.
  • We will no longer classify our e-liquid nicotine strengths as HIGH, MED and NON. Instead, we will use percentage amounts that reflect the amount of nicotine that makes up the e-liquid: 2.4%, 1.2% and 0%. You can visit our Explore Vaping section to learn more about the different nicotine strengths in e-liquid.

During this transitional period, some shipments may contain a mix of past and updated packaging or labels.

While we’re working on these changes, we took the liberty of making a few updates of our own. We’re changing up the design of our blu® Disposables box to keep things as consistent and eye-catching as always. You like to stand out from the crowd and so do we!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the changes to our packaging or advertising, feel free to contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-207-4588.

5 Things To Look Out For When You Start Vaping blu

The Top 5 Things To Look Out For When You Start Vaping | blu

Vaping for the first time is a big decision for a lot of people, so it makes sense to be prepared before you start so there aren’t any surprises. Here we go through a few things that you should expect and look out for when you first start vaping with blu.

1. Getting The Device That Works For You

There are a few different types of e-cigarette kit available from blu, so it’s understandable if you’re unsure which one will work best for you. The blu PLUS+™ is a smaller, sleeker e-cigarette which makes it easier to carry around, whereas the blu PRO™ is more powerful and lasts for much longer. The blu PLUS+™ comes in two different kits: the Rechargeable Kit and the Xpress Kit. There are also blu® Disposable e-cigarettes which don’t need to be charged or refilled and can be used straight out of the box, making them ideal for travel.

As we said, it can be a little overwhelming, but there’s tons of information in the About blu section of our website which will help you decide on the best e-cigarette for your vaping needs. It’s also worth noting that many vapers will change the type of e-cig they use, so if one isn’t quite working for you, it may just be that you’d be better off with another one.

2. Different Flavors

One of the best things about vaping is that there are loads of different flavors to try, but when you start vaping it can be a little confusing as to which one will be best for you. Many people like the familiar taste of Tobacco or Menthol, but there are also flavors such as Blueberry and Cherry to try should you want something different.

The best thing to do is to keep an open mind and accept that it may take some time to find your perfect flavor. Many vapers like to vape a number of different flavors depending on their mood.

3. Finding The Right Nicotine Strength

As with flavors, e-liquid also comes in a number of different nicotine strengths which will affect your vape. The different levels of nicotine can be confusing, but in time most vapers find ones that they like best. Many vapers start with a higher concentration of nicotine and, over time, some vapers like to decrease the level of nicotine in their e-liquid. There are even 0% nicotine e-liquids for those who want to vape without it.

For more information on how to pick the right nicotine strength in your e-liquid, check out our guide on finding the right nicotine strength for you.

4. E-Cigarette Maintenance

Looking after your e-cigarette is important as you’ll want it to last for as long as possible. There are a few different factors to consider when you start vaping, such as keeping your e-cigarette clean, finding a good place to store it and looking after the e-cigarette’s battery.

All of these things are pretty easy to pick up but can be a bit confusing if you’ve not come across e-cigarettes before. Fortunately, there’s loads of information our site about how to look after your e-cigarette:

5. Where Can I Vape?

Understanding where you can and can’t vape is also important, as the rules on using e-cigarettes in various locations has changed a lot over the years. When e-cigarettes were first introduced, there were few regulations restricting the use of e-cigarettes in locations such as at work or in restaurants, meaning that one of the advantages of using e-cigarettes was that they could be used inside of public places.

However, in recent years regulations have been passed to stop people from using e-cigarettes so freely, and as a result there is often a lot of confusion as to where they can be used. Furthermore, different countries often have very different rules relating to e-cigs, meaning that travel can be especially troublesome for those looking to take their e-cigarettes on holiday.

Most locations now have guidelines on where and when you can vape, so the best thing to do before heading anywhere is to check out the website of the place you’re attending for clarification. Members of the staff will also be aware of a location’s vaping rules. If you’re looking to go abroad with your e-cigarettes, blu has a guide to travelling with your e-cigs as well as a rundown on vaping laws across the states and around the world.

blu Fan Of The Month: November

Throughout this year we’ve been looking to get to know you, the people of bluNation®, and hear more about how you got into vaping with blu and what it means to you. Our latest fan of the month is Celeste, and we spoke to her about why she vapes blu as well as a little about herself.

If you want to be in with a chance of being featured as our next Fan of the Month, fill out our questionnaire and tell us: What makes you stand out from other blu vapers? You’ll get the chance to appear on the blu Blog and you’ll receive a $100 gift card! For more information on the competition, check out the terms and conditions here.

Meet our November Fan of the Month: Celeste

How long have you used blu?

I’ve been using blu for almost three years.

What’s your favorite blu product?

blu® Disposables.

What’s your favorite flavor and why?

Cherry Crush is my favorite flavor. It tastes great and the flavor is long-lasting.

Tell us about your blu experience

I enjoy the convenience of blu. It’s portable, no ashes and you don’t need a lighter. When you’re finished, you don’t have to extinguish it like a regular cigarette.

You have the entire day to spend doing whatever you want. How do you spend it?

A picture perfect day at the Jersey shore with my boyfriend, Danny. He would be fishing and I would be sitting at the water’s edge, soaking up the sun, reading a book and enjoying my blu Cherry Crush e-cig.

Where are your go-to vaping spots?

The sun porch with my morning coffee or when I am reading, driving or walking around Center City at lunchtime.

Any advice for a first time vaper or someone new to blu?

blu is a much better experience than the ordinary. Try it, you’ll like it!
