User impressions:

The myblu™ pod system holds a very special place in our hearts. You see, many moons ago, an earlier incarnation of this unit enabled our chief pod tester to quit cigarettes for good…and this was after decades of smoking followed by years of struggling to quit with mods.

Indeed, some of you might recall a certain game-changing device from a few years back with a curiously aristocratic name: the ‘Von Erl’. In our opinion, this was the first vaping device to truly replicate the experience of smoking – although obviously without the threat of a slow and painful death being involved. Was it a perfect device? Far from it. It was leaky, the contact springs kept getting stuck, and the battery had a tendency to come loose from the housing. But in spite of its numerous quirks we loved the thing, because vaping with it meant not smoking!

Fast forward to the present day, and thanks to a collaboration with Fortem Ventures of Amsterdam, the trusty old Von Erl has been reborn – transformed in fact – into the myblu™. And WOW…what a transformation! To the untrained eye it still looks much the same…retaining all the pleasing aesthetics and user-friendly form factor, but upon closer inspection we find a host of subtle tweaks and tightened tolerances that have effectively eliminated every shortcoming of the original device.

In short, the myblu™ is now a near-perfect vaping device.

It’s consistent, reliable, leak-free, with optimal vapor production. Even the pre-filled flavours are top notch! And choices…so many flavours…and nic salt as well. The flavours are branded as INTENSE, and they are. These are Genuine Manufacturer’s CAPITALS by the way, so you can be sure they mean what they say.

Finally, there’s the price. If I were a millennial I’d probably say “like, Oh. Mygod”. But I’m not, so I won’t. But you get the picture…these things are dirt cheap for the high quality they represent. Same for the replacement pods
