SAN DIEGO, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Electronic cigarettes continue to be seen as a viable alternative to regular cigarettes, with over 2.5 million Americans using them, according to the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association.  One retailer survey estimated sales to be around $300 million, although a figure of $500 million has also been quoted. Today, new research tests the Blu Cig electronic cigarette, to see whether it delivers the authenticity and strike of a regular cigarette. Blu Cigs offers a range of electronic cigarettes that are free from smoke whilst still looking like a regular cigarette and delivering a similar nicotine hit. 

"We live under a perpetual smoking ban or restriction," said Product Reviewer for Awesome All Day Reviews, Brian Lemis. "As of just last month, over 80% of Americans were estimated to live under a ban on smoking in bars, restaurants, offices and other public places. Smokers already feel the constraints of smoking in heavily restricted areas, as the pressure from anti-smokers and passive smokers continues to build."

Electronic cigarettes like Blu Cigs have been designed to provide the smoker with an authentic experience, through the puffing on a cigarette-shaped device that releases nicotine in a range of flavors and strengths, suited to different tastes. The tip features an LED light that is activated when the user takes a drag, mimicking the look and feel of a normal cigarette. However, the Blu Cig and other e-cigarettes eliminate the unsocial elements such as the smoke and the ash.

"As a 20-a-day smoker of a big brand, I considered myself representative of the average smoker and a good target for a trial," continue Lemis. "I must admit that I wasn't sure that an e-cigarette could give me the same mental and physical effect as a normal cigarette, but the 'Classic Tobacco' really surprised me with its depth of flavor and nicotine hit. Although initially slightly skeptical, it gave me great pleasure to discover that I got just as much satisfaction from a Blu Cig than from the real thing, minus all of the very unsocial elements."

The Blu Cig range traditionally came in five flavors: Classic, Menthol, Vanilla, Cherry and Java, but has recently added Pina Colada and Peach Schnapps to its growing variety. Each cartridge lasts approximately the same time as a regular carton of cigarettes, and the pack contains an innovative battery charging mechanism. Also new to its repertoire is the social feature, which alerts Blu Cig users to each other within a certain range, and notifies the user when they are close to a retailer.

Electronic cigarettes can be used virtually anywhere including restaurants, bars and airport lounges. They can even be used on some airlines, but users are encouraged to check first.
