E-Cigs Lingo


Electronic cigarettes have a language all their own. We want to make savoring blu eCigs® electronic cigarettes as easy as possible for adult smokers, so here’s a handy primer to help you get to know blu. You’ll be vaping like a pro in no time!

Electronic Cigarette/E-cig

E-cigs are made of metal, and blu eCigs electronic cigarettes have a tip that glows a signature blue, as opposed to the red or orange ember of a traditional cigarette. There are no matches or lighters needed. E-cigs contain a flavored liquid that is heated by a battery. This produces a vapor, which is then inhaled.


E-cigs don’t produce any smoke; they produce vapor that is inhaled. So you “vape” an e-cig.

Cartridge/Flavor Cartridge

blu eCigs rechargeables feature a battery that can be charged again and again. The only thing to swap out is the flavor cartridge. These cartridges contain liquid (see below). Once the cartridge is empty, it can be disposed of (and recycled at many locations). blu cartridges supply approximately 250+ puffs depending on the user.

blu Tanks™

blu eCigs Tanks are the next level in vaping technology and satisfaction. Similar to our flavor cartridges, they provide a convenient, pre-filled, screw-in unit—but they hold more smoke juice and deliver more vapor (more than twice the number of puffs than a flavor cartridge) and more flavor.


The cartomizer is a cartridge that contains the flavored juice, as well as the atomizer in the same unit. The atomizer helps turn the smoke juice into inhalable vapor. With blu cartomizers, you get a new atomizer every time you install a new blu eCigs cartridge, so you don’t have to worry about atomizer maintenance.

Smoke Juice/Liquid

blu eCigs® electronic cigarettes use liquid. When this liquid is heated up by the battery (activated by inhaling), it is vaporized … not burned. This vapor is then inhaled and savored. Various nicotine strengths are available—including nicotine-free.

The liquid found in blu eCigs electronic cigarettes is custom-made for blu in the U.S.A. with domestic and imported ingredients.


blu eCigs disposables are portable, all-in-one units. The battery, atomizer and smoke juice are all inside. These disposables provide about 400 puffs. Once it’s spent, it can be discarded (and often recycled.)

Rechargeable E-cigs

Rechargeable blu eCigs electronic cigarettes contain a rechargeable battery. You charge the battery by placing it in the blu pack. The blu pack itself can be charged by plugging it into a wall socket or using a USB charger*. The pack can charge your spare battery while carrying the rest of your cartridges, so you’ll always have a fresh battery ready.

It’s also possible to charge a reusable e-cig using a USB adaptor. Just plug it into an available USB port, let it charge up and you’re ready to roll!

*Note: The Universal Car Charger is compatible with all blu packs, and is the only car charger compatible with the blu PLUS+ pack. It has a blue face plate instead of a black one. The Universal Car Charger can be purchased in our online store.
