Wondering how e-cigs stand up to cigs? Let’s compare them for cost, convenience, odour and experience.


Tobacco cigarettes are expensive. Plain and simple. People who make the switch to e-cigarettes typically see big savings. While the cost of tobacco and electronic cigarettes varies by brand, our average customer can save up to 82% when using a blu e-cig with cartridges. Or as much as 92% when using a Pro Tank and e-liquid range. Go to our Cost Savings page to see how we worked this out.


The UK government banned smoking cigarettes in public areas in July 2007. That means smokers have to stand out in the cold and wait long periods between lighting up. Pretty inconvenient. So what about e-cigs? Well you can enjoy e-cigs almost anywhere, anytime – so they win hands down for convenience.

Why you can use e-cigarettes almost anywhere

Electronic cigarette users can usually ignore ‘no smoking’ signs as they don’t apply to electronic cigs. Because e-cigs don’t burn tobacco, they’re not banned in the UK like cigarettes. E-cigarettes produce no residual odour and no tobacco smoke, so you can use them in enclosed spaces without upsetting others. Just ask the permission of the location manager first. Go to our Smoke Anywhere page for more information.

Buy e-cigarettes almost anywhere

The disadvantages of tobacco smoke smell

Most people don’t like the overpowering smell of tobacco cigarettes. As smokers know, the odour of cigarette smoke quickly overpowers a room. It leaves a pungent, lasting smell in the car, on your hair, skin, clothes – any fabric exposed to direct smoke.

The odourless advantage of electronic cigarettes

Most electric cigarettes, including all blu products, leave no lingering smell. So you can enjoy blu electronic cigarettes without worrying about smelling bad for hours afterwards, making your clothes smell like an ashtray or offending those around you. Electric cigarettes won’t stain your teeth either.


A lot of smokers never try electronic cigarettes because they don’t think they’ll offer the sensation of smoking their favourite cigs. If you’re concerned about how the electronic cigarette experience compares to your favourite tobacco cigarettes, simply give e-cigs a try. We make our e-cigs to simulate the authentic tobacco cigarette experience. In fact, many people prefer the e-cigarette experience over smoking tobacco.

With blu, you can choose the type of kit and e-cigarette which suits your needs. Our customers like that blu™ e-cigarettes come in a variety of nicotine strengths and flavours as well as E-Liquids.
