5 Things Not To Do With a blu Electronic Cigarette

Categories: Disposables, Liquids, Vaping, Guides

By now, you’re probably aware of all the things you can do with a blu® electronic cigarette. You can vape in many places where you can’t smoke a tobacco cigarette, keep your clothes and hair smoke-free, and avoid dealing with messy ashtrays. You may not, however, know about some of the things that you shouldn’t do with a blu.

Here’s a short list of things that you definitely do NOT want to try at home (or on the road, in your office, or anywhere else)!

1) Don’t put a blu e-cigarette loosely in your back pocket

Of course you CAN put your blu into the rechargeable pack and THEN put the pack into your pocket. But when you store your blu loosely in your back pocket you run the risk of the following:

  • You could damage your blu if you sit on it or forget to remove it from your pocket.
  • You’ll likely get pocket lint or other miscellaneous pocket items on your mouthpiece, and that’s just gross.
  • You could forget you left the e-cig in your pocket, and it could end up in the washer when you’re doing laundry!

2) Don’t try to add your own e-liquid

blu® Disposables and blu PLUS+ Tanks™ are already pre-filled and NON-refillable, so please forget about all those “e-cig hacks” articles and videos you may have seen online. Not only will you likely damage your device if you try and “tweak” your blu® e-cigarette, you’ll also void the warranty.

3) Don’t try to disassemble your blu® Disposable

As mentioned in number 2, the blu® Disposable is designed for single-use. When your blu is empty, it should be properly discarded. In other words, use of your blu® Disposable is simple. Please don’t complicate the process by attempting to take a disposable apart and then trying to put it back together. You could cause your device to short circuit and damage the battery cell which will void your warranty. Ignore any urges you may have to “pimp your e-cig.”

4) Don’t use non-blu products or accessories with blu® products or accessories

In other words, don’t try to mix and match blu stuff with non-blu stuff. Just don’t, trust us. See the above spiel about ignoring “hack” articles/videos and voiding the warranty.

blu® products and accessories are made with one another. They aren’t designed to be used with non-blu products so don’t try to charge a blu battery or blu pack with a non-blu accessory. Don’t try using a non-blu tank with a blu battery. Worst-case scenario, you could do some serious damage to your blu. “Best-case” scenario, you could have a horrible experience from a performance perspective (e.g. the vapor may taste like a sweaty sneaker…or worse). However, when it comes to your blu Wall Charger, you may use your wall adapter with an equivalent device and your USB cord with a properly specified wall adapter.

5) Don’t vape like no one’s watching

This kinda goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: don’t be a jerk when you’re using your blu. Even though you can still use your blu in many places where you can’t smoke a tobacco cigarette, some venues do NOT allow electronic cigarette use. So please be respectful of whatever laws, rules and regulations you may encounter. In short, don’t vape in places where it’s not allowed.

If you find yourself in such a setting, it’s likely not the appropriate time or place to make a political statement about your right to vape. Think about it — the waiter who tells you vaping is against the restaurant’s policy likely doesn’t have the authority to reverse said policy. So instead of making a scene and arguing, fight the good fight the right way.
