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 should not 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 pocket.
“I’ll just put my blu in my pocket for later” is a bad idea. Of course you CAN put your blu into the rechargeable pack and THEN put the pack into your pocket. But here’s why you don’t want a loose e-cig in your pocket:
- You could feel, say, a bit “awkwardly uncomfortable” with an e-cig wedged in your pocket.
- You’ll likely get pocket lint all over the mouthpiece end, and that’s just gross. Don’t put
pocket lint in your mouth.
- You could forget you left the e-cig in your pocket, and it could end up in the washer when you’re doing laundry (by the way, don’t use your e-cig after it’s been in the washer!).
2. Don’t try to add your own smoke juice.
blu disposables and blu Tanks™ are already pre-filled and NON-refillable, so please forget about all those “ecig hacks” articles and videos you may have seen online. Not only will you likely mess up something if you try and “tweak” your blu e-cigarette, you’ll also void the warranty.
3. Don’t try to disassemble your blu disposable.
Related to #2 above, the blu disposable is designed to be used until it’s empty. After it’s empty, it should be properly discarded. In other words, it’s simple. Please don’t complicate the process by taking a disposable apart and then trying to put it back together. Again, ignore any urges you may have to “pimp your e-cig.”
4. Don’t use non-blu products or non-blu accessories with blu products or blu accessories.
In other words, don’t try and 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 for one another. Simply put, 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 e-cig. “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).
5. Don’t be a jerk/jerkette.
This kinda goes without saying (because blu customers are the coolest), but we’ll say it anyway: Don’t be a jerk when you’re using your blu. Even though you can still use a 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.
