Skycig Review 2014
Read on to find out all about the company, we review several of their products and give our opinion on where they stand in the market among other e cigarette brands.
In 2013 Skycig was bought by the 3rd larget American tobacoo company Lorillard who also owned BluCigs. As of May 2014 SkyCigs has been re-branded to be called BluCigs in the UK as Lorillard are trying to push BluCigs into the UK market. The company at that point had been around for 3 years and were one of the biggest companies in the UK and were growing internationally as well. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength and now sell their products in some of the largest retailers around. With the backing from Lorillard Skycigs now BluCigs are a brand that people can buy with confidence.

For our review and what they have to offer read on:
This starter kit aptly named ‘Starter’ is priced at £14.99 ($25.28). It comes with 2 x Blu batteries, 2 cartridges and 1 x USB.
This is their entry level starter kit which has everything you need to get vaping. It comes in a carry case which is shaped like a traditional cigarette packet and you have a choice of 2 flavors which are Classic Tobacco and Menthol.
We really like the simple, but well designed packaging, the design of the e cigarette and we also really like the case with it magnetic strip to keep the lid tight.
It has been noted that the flavor (cartridge) used in BluCig’s products are often a little harsh on the throat, this is most notable near the end of the cartridges life span. It would have been nice though to have seen a few more flavors on offer.
We had a few questions we put to BluCig and they were very good in getting back to us really quickly. They pride themselves on the customer side of things and have allocated a team especially for this. They also offer a 30 day money back guarantee and a 1 year warranty which is a must in today’s market place.
These come in a pack of 3 cartridges for £5.99 ($10.10). The price goes down per pack if you buy more than one. The refills are easy to change and you have a choice of flavors to use.
This e cigarette kit is priced at £29.99 ($50.58) and comes with their latest charging case so you can charge on the go. You also get a portable charging case, 3 flavored cartridges and 2 batteries.
This product is competitively priced and what with the extra cartridges and better batteries that last longer this product is worth buying if you regularly smoke a lot of cigarettes and need something that is reliable.
