Blu Go Disposable Review

Blu Go Disposable Review
Blu is a pretty popular and well-known E-cig brand, and they make some very well-received and respected products. The Blu Go Disposable, however, is a bit different in that it’s not a rechargeable E-cig. As it turns out, some people truly don’t enjoy the whole ‘recharging’ thing all the time – and for those people, disposables are an excellent choice.
A disposable E-cig is still much cheaper than buying analog cigarettes – but it also affords you the convenience of being able to simply discard it once it has been used up.
And not surprisingly, Blu has done a decent job with the Go Disposable. The actual model that we looked at was the Menthol. Here are our thoughts about it.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that we discovered while researching this product…
- It’s reasonably priced
- It produces a nice flavour
- It produces quite a bit of vapour for a disposable
- It’ll last you anywhere from a few days to over a week
- It feels a lot like a real cigarette
- You can’t recharge it
- It’s more expensive to use disposables in the long run than it is to use rechargeables
- You can’t refill it with E-liquid
What’s in the starter kit?
This product really just consists of the E-cig itself. It’s a disposable, so there’s really no need for any other parts or pieces.[print_responsive_slider_plus_lightbox id=”34″]
At first, it looks like the battery can screw off – but this is just an aesthetic affect to make it look nice. It’s a one-piece product that you cannot take apart. It’s really a pretty simple E-cig. You just open up the box, vape on it until it runs out of battery power or E-liquid, and then discard it.
It has a 1.8% nicotine strength, which is actually pretty good if you’re trying to wean yourself off of cigarettes. Unfortunately, that’s the only strength that they come in. Of course, it’s always nice to see disposables offered in different nicotine strengths – but alas, it’s hard to produce so many different types and come out money-ahead, so it’s understandable that Blu would only produce a couple of options and utilize what is probably the most popular nicotine strength.
There’s a really nice blue LED tip on the end, which looks awesome – even when the device isn’t being used. There’s also a 340mAh battery built into the device – so you won’t need to worry about not having enough power. For a disposable, that’s a pretty good sized battery.
It’ll last you quite a while before it dies, depending on exactly how heavy of a vaper you are. If you tend to be a light vaper and don’t hit it very hard, this device can actually last quite a long time (more than a week in some cases).
For the price, this is a decent deal. It might not do the trick in the long-run if you’re a heavy vaper – but it can serve as an excellent introductory tool for people who are thinking of quitting cigarettes and moving on to vaping.
- Original Menthol Flavour
- Contains undertones of spearmint and peppermint
- 8% nicotine strength
- 340mAh battery
What we think of this E-cig?
If you’re thinking of getting off of cigarettes and want to give the concept of vaping a try before spending a ton of money, then we really couldn’t recommend this device enough. Blu makes good quality products, and this E-cig is no exception.
It could also serve as an excellent choice for people who want to go out on the town, but don’t want to take their expensive E-cig along with them. If you normally use a box mod, but don’t want to risk dropping it while out and about, then a disposable like this could give you your nicotine fix without putting your more expensive device at risk.
This pen could also make a perfect gift for someone who is currently a smoker, but interested in quitting and finding an alternative.
To be honest, this device gave off an impressive amount of vapour for its size. It was also very responsive. As soon as you inhale on it, the vapour is there – which is awesome. The flavour is also very good. The menthol was quite subtle – but not so much that it wasn’t strong enough. It was very minty and pleasant.
All in all, a very well-done disposable E-cig!
Appearance and Feel
The packaging is pretty nice and neat. It comes in a simple cardboard package. You can actually buy them at most petrol stations, as well as online. If you’ve looked in many shops, you’ve probably seen them. This is actually a pretty popular product.
Once you open the box, you’ll pull out the E-cig – which is encased in a black plastic tray and sealed. There are some simple instructions included with the device, and a rubber cap for the mouthpiece.
All in all, it’s pretty close to the size of a king-size cigarette – and is slightly heavier. But really, it’s not too different. It looks really nice.
Interestingly, this device has 6 holes in the mouthpiece instead of just one – which really adds to the airflow in a positive way. We were pretty pumped about this when we saw it, because it’s honestly not that common in disposable E-cigs to have more than one tiny hole in the mouthpiece. There’s also an air hole further down on the device – which also helps.
This device seems to be made mostly of plastic and metal – and it certainly shows all the signs of being sturdy. It definitely won’t break unless you apply an unreasonable amount of force.
- Ease of Use
Really, this product couldn’t be easier to use. You simply remove it from the packaging, take off the cap, and start vaping. Then, when it runs out of battery power or E-liquid, you just discard it and buy a new one.
The best thing about this product is that it’s so easy to use. Another serious highlight of this vape pen is the fact that it tastes good. The menthol flavouring was very nice, and almost tasted more like mint than menthol.
The main drawback to this product was the fact that you can’t refill it and reuse it. But on the flipside, that’s also what makes it so simple to use – so really, this isn’t too much of an issue.
