Anatomy of a blu eCigs Electronic Cigarette
There’s a lot going on inside of a blu eCigs® electronic cigarette!
Our e-cigarettes may be the same size and shape as traditional cigarettes, but there’s a lot more cool technology in an e-cig. A traditional cigarette is made of tobacco leaves rolled in paper that burns to create smoke. Electronic cigarettes are made of metal, and a battery heats up a flavored nicotine solution to create water vapor. No smoke, no smell, no ash, no fire, and no mess.
So what precisely is inside a blu eCigs electronic cigarette? We’re glad you asked. From the silicone tip to the glowing blue light, here’s a peek at what’s inside.
- Silicone Tip
The mouthpiece on an e-cig contains a silicone tip to prevent any leakage from the reservoir of flavored smoke juice. The mouthpiece also features one hole for intake. This is where you inhale the water vapor produced by the e-cig. This intake hole is designed to maximize the draw and resistance of the vapor when you inhale. It provides a sensation that is very similar to how it feels to take a drag on a traditional cigarette.
- Flavor Cartridge
The flavor cartridge of a blu eCigs electronic cigarette is contained in the mouthpiece. The cartridge contains smoke juice—a flavored e-liquid that is heated to become vapor. This smoke juice, which is custom-blended for blu eCigs by Johnson Creek, comes in different nicotine strengths, including nicotine-free. The flavors available are Classic Tobacco, Magnificent Menthol, Java Jolt, Cherry Crush, Piña Colada, Peach Schnapps, and Vivid Vanilla.
The cartridge also includes an atomizer. This atomizer uses the heat produced by the battery and transforms it into water vapor.
The flavor cartridges—sometimes called cartomizers because they contain an atomizer—are replaceable. You recharge your batteries, but when your cartridge is spent, it can be disposed of and replaced. You can try all of your favorite cartridges and swap them out at will. Each cartridge lasts for about 250 – 300 puffs.
The replaceable cartridge is screwed into the rechargeable battery. The battery is housed in a black metal tube with the blu™ logo on it. The specially-designed lithium-polymer battery can be charged over and over as needed. This battery can be recharged by plugging it into the blu pack.
- LED Tip
The tip of a blu eCigs electronic cigarette lights up blue. The location and glow is reminiscent of the ember on a lit cigarette, but the blue color makes it clear that it isn’t a traditional cigarette. The LED light located at the end of the battery casing lights up blue every time you inhale.
This signature blue tip is more than just a conversation starter. The LED light will signal when it needs to be recharged. It helps make sure you have a blu battery ready when you are!
