While we were out and about this last week, a FODE (Friend of Denver Egotist) in from LA introduced us to some sexy new technology for smokers looking for the next best thing to the real thing (and a chance to get the buzz without the badness that comes with it). Blu Electronic Cigarettes have us seriously considering picking up the habit, if only for the cool tech factor they provide.
Here’s how they work. You load a cartridge of what is essentially liquid nicotine into a slickly-designed battery powered cigarette. When you puff, the cigarette cherries with a bright blue LED light on the tip and you exhale vapor. You get the nic buzz, but none of the harmful chemicals, tar or odor. Which means you can smoke anywhere (inside bars, restaurants or the grocery) without bugging anyone around you.
The cartridges come in a bunch of flavors and the battery charges right inside a case that’s included with the starter kit. E Cigarettes cost 75% less than a typical cigarette habit. Cigarettes are evolving. Check this out if you think it’s time to evolve too.
