Just like when any other big tobacco company makes its debut with an electronic cigarette, it created a stir around the world with perceptions as the next big thing. But will the Vuse be the next big thing? – Doubtful.
Though it seems to be better built referring to its metal design, it’s also quite long and as you would expect, pretty heavy too (in comparison to other e-cigarettes). The look is nice, it’s sleek and doesn’t exactly mimic a traditional cigarette. And to continue speaking on a good note about the Vuse, the light at the end that glows is also a great feature. The light differs from other typical electronic cigarettes – it lights up white on normal battery strength and when your battery is nearing its end, it lights red indicating that the battery is low. Pretty cool feature for this small e-cig I would say.
Even though the Vuse does introduce a new feature to these stick style e-cigs (which I think is awesome), reality sets in before you even get to it. On the packaging, you see many words like “tobacco product”. We all hate it that electronic cigarettes are being used in this category, but it also gives us some idea or insight to what the FDA may have in store for e-cigarette packaging.
