The Halo Triton Tank  – One of Our Highest Rated Beginner and Intermediate Level Vape Pen

9.8-star-75

Halo Triton Tank Starter Kit

The Halo Triton Tank System was one of the first “second-generation” vaping devices. It was a big a step up from a “cigalike” – a traditionally styled e-cigarette. The Triton is a thicker, heavier, eGo-type e-cigarette; meaning the tip doesn’t light up. This model is still very popular and can boast a long, successful track record. 

If you’re ready to move up to the intermediate level of vaping, or if you prefer to look like you’re vaping rather than smoking, the Halo Triton Tank E-Cigarette is an excellent choice. 

Here’s why I still rate it as one of the top 10 e-cigarettes on the market.

Pretty Box  

To start, I was really impressed with the sturdy packaging which looks like a fine jewelry case. This is a cut above your basic cardboard and plastic throw away box. It’s black and padded…very classy, except it did have a faint “packaging” aroma I didn’t like. That said, once you start using the Triton Tank and Halo’s e-liquids, you’ll forget all about the box.  

The Triton Tank starter kit comes with two batteries in your choice of 4 colors, two clearomizers (called Crystal Clear Tanks), a usb charger, a wall charger and a cone. (more on that coming up).

The Tank

Halo Triton’s tanks (clearomizers) are as solid as a tank and easy to fill, but what sets this system apart from other “add your own e-liquid” e-cigs is that the Tank holds about 65% more e-liquid than standard cartomizers and it can last up to two days depending on your vaping style.

I also like the fact that you fill it from the top (near the mouthpiece) rather than the bottom (near the battery). This greatly reduces the chance that the liquid will leak into the battery or spill all over the place if you forget to turn your ecig upside down when you remove the tank. (That’s only necessary with bottom coil clearomizers). Dripping in your eliquid is also easier than in other tanks since the center draw hole is raised above the threads making it almost impossible to get ejuice into the wrong place.

Halo’s clearomizer tanks are pretty clear, so you can see how much e-juice has been used. These clearomizers, unlike some refillable ones have no polyfill that can get in the way of the taste.

One slight downside to a Halo Clearomizer is that it’s made of plastic, not pyrex. It is; however incredibly strong and I’ve never had my Triton Tank crack while using another company’s acidic e-juices like some banana or citrus flavors. Halo, (like most ecig companies that sell ejuice) recommend their own line of eliquids. 

Inside the tank there’s a coil which heats the liquids. The Triton Tank kit comes with a 2.4 ohms coil which is mid-range and makes for a pleasant vape with major vapor volume that doesn’t burn your throat like coils with lower, hotter ohms. If you do want a stronger throat hit Halo sells coils in lower resistants levels. Some people have complained that the newer coils now offered don’t last very long. It really depends on what e-liquid you use. Thicker e-liquids (including Halo’s Belgian Cocoa) can shorten the life of your atomizer.

The Triton Tank System is quite versatile in that you can use one of Halo’s e-juice filters (called Cartomizers) instead of the tank. You can buy Halo’s e-liquid Cartomizers pre-filled with e-liquid or blank if you want to add your own e-juice.

I might add that Halo’s tanks and cartridges are designed to fit only Halo products. The threading may look like a 510 eGo, but it’s not.

The Cone

There’s a mysterious plastic cone in the kit and it took me a while to figure out that it fits over a Halo Cartomizer, but not the Clearomizer that comes in this kit.  It doesn’t fit on the Tank and is only good if you add Cartomizers to your kit order. 

Powerful Batteries

Getting back to the positive; Halo’s Triton Tank Batteries come in 12 attractive colors and are available from 400 to 1300 mAh for those seeking longer usage times between charges. I tested a mid-rage 650 mAh which has a voltage running at approximately 3.7 – 4.2 Volts. It gave me a smooth, flavorful vape and lasted for about 2 days before I needed to re-charge.

If you’re concerned about safety, the button activated battery has a 10-second cut of feature should the firing button be inadvertently pressed.

The Juice

I was really impressed by the taste of Halo’s e-liquids! Recently Halo started including a 30ml e-liquid of your choice in the Triton Tank Starter Kit. Also, Halo is mad about e-juice sales. A week doesn’t go by without at least one sale.

We regularly announce them on our Twitter and Facebook pages too.

American made e-juices are becoming the norm amongst savvy vapers and Halo’s U.S. made e-liquids are quickly gaining the reputation of being one of best. I tested several flavors and was pleasantly surprised that Prime 15 actually tasted like tobacco. Cafe Mocha, Belgian Cocoa were also true to the name. Their Gourmet Flavors range from traditional to exotic and they won’t disappoint. You can also buy e-liquids in economical large bottles.

Vapor Production

The Halo E-Cig Triton Tank System produces amazing, full vapor, thicker in volume than any cigalike including Halo’s G6 model, (which I also reviewed). 

A Note About Chargers and E-Liquids

The Trident Tank USB charger may look like it can accommodate Halo’s traditional G6 e-cigarette, (or any other brand of e-cigarette), but Halo makes a strong point of saying USB chargers are NOT interchangeable. The threading on the USB may look and work with other batteries but it can be a dangerous mix due to the higher voltage. Batteries can burn out or in very rare cases, experience thermal runaway;- a nice way of saying it can explode.

I wish more companies (and e-cig reviewers) would make a point of discouraging the mixing of E-cigarette batteries with non-product specific chargers. At least Halo, unlike some e-cigarette companies print their logo on both the wall charger and the USB charger. I wish they would add “Triton” to the USB as it does have a higher voltage than the USB used for the Halo G6 model.

Regarding nicotine levels, Halo’s range from Zero nicotine to 24mg. 

Remember, e-liquids should be kept away from children and pets, although according to CDC reports, nicotine is not nearly as dangerous as everyone once thought. 

Price on Starter Kits:

The Halo Triton Tank Starter Kits is now a low $40.00. If you want to get into first class, second generation vaping cheaply, don’t mind the filling your own e-liquids and want a reliable e-cig with a large e-liquid clearomizer, Halo is a great choice.

All in all the Triton Tank System is a high quality, easy to use e-cigarette that delivers outstanding vapor production. I rate it a 9.8 which puts at the top of its class.

    Hello. I’d like to know if the Halo tank would stand the thicker, higher VG juices or even the 100% PG-free ones. Many thanks.
    malamo

    1. Hi Mala,
      Absolutely! Halo makes Hi VG eliquids that are 70% VG. If you go with that ratio you can use any brand of e-liquid. Happy Vaping!

        Thanks for the reply Hillary!

        Would I then need to go for the sub-ohm tanks if I wanted to go for 100% VG?

        I’m told the all-VGs tend to be much thicker and won’t do well in other/smaller tanks.

        Since posting my first question, I switched to a 35/65 juice but still wheezed and coughed, so it looks like my body’s not liking the PG at all. I’m very sad to say that I’m back to dreadful cigarettes – for now. I intend to keep experimenting so I never go back to them again.

        I do appreciate you taking the time to help & advise.

        1. Hi Malamo,
          You don’t necessarily have to go to the subohm tanks/atomizers, but if you continue to use higher ohm atomizers you will need to change them quite frequently as they will get gunky very quickly!

    Hi I am new to vaping and want to know if I can change the bit I put the liquid in on my Halo as it always falls off and leaks everywhere 🙁

    1. Hi Jabba,
      Halo has several models so I don’t know which you are referring to. They have excellent customer service so I suggest calling them for assistance. Good luck!

  1. Great post.

    Love my triton tank, the service from halo has been outstanding! Have not had a traditional cig since jan. and had not even had the intention of giving
    them up just a substitute to use on a long nonsmoking trip.

    1. Hi Nancy. That’s awesome that your Halo has been so helpful. It’s really the absolute best tank system I’ve tested (and I’ve tested a lot!).Halo e-liquids are fabulous too 🙂 Thanks for commenting.

    Awesome product!!! I purchased a Halo Triton 2 weeks ago after having a blu cig for 6 months, which is a childs toy compared to the Triton.. Anyhow i haven’t even thought of smoking a tabacco cig since I started using it!

    1. We love the Triton too! Great choice for ‘intermediate’ vapors who are ready to add their own e-liquids. As for blucigs…ok to start, but there are far superior “cig-alikes”. We gave them a low rating too 🙂

    Dears,
    i want to know wher i can finf halo products on united arab emirates.

    1. Unfortunately the United Arab Emirates has banned e-cigarettes because the government says they are dangerous. You can; however, still smoke regular cigarettes in public in the UAE.

    Do not do business with Halo Ecigs. I have just had one of the worst customer service experiences of my life. An almost $200 order of their products was not delivered due to an error with their packaging. I paid for the ultra fast shipping ($40) so that the package would arrive in 3-5 business days on December 28, 2013. After 20 business days (Jan 31, 2014) without the package (it was sent back from the Canadian border due to improper packaging) I contacted Halo and was told that they would re-ship the product, but that I would have to pay for shipping a second time.

    I exchanged many emails back and forth over the course of 5 days (never expect to get a response back the same day) they confirmed that they would not resend without more money. Why would I pay more for shipping when the error was their fault?

    After a couple more messages I was just too fed up to continue. I’m sure there are lost of other plans that value customers who had spent hundreds upon hundreds of dollars with their business.

    1. Hi Zach. Thanks for leaving feedback about Halo! I’m sorry you had such a rough experience. We’ve not had problems with Halo shipments, but we have learned about repeated problems (since late 2013) getting NICOTINE e-cigs past Canadian customs. They now open most e-cig shipments, and reject them if “drugs” like nicotine are discovered. They may give you an excuse like “improper packaging”, but it most probably means that the package contains “improper” products. Now Canada won’t even permit the sale of nicotine e-cigs without a special health permit. See this notice: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/prodpharma/applic-demande/pol/notice_avis_e-cig-eng.php.

      As for Halo’s shipping and returns policies, we’re aware that they do not offer Free Shipping and returns, one reason why they lose a few small points on our “10 Best E-Cigarettes” list.

      I suggest you get a kit with a cartridge you can refill or order zero nicotine e-liquid. It will get thru customs. Then, find a shop in Canada where you can legally buy e-juice with nicotine. It’s interesting to note that new tests are now showing that even vaping without nicotine can curb your ciggy habit. Good luck!

    We agree with your review and we might even grade the Halo Triton Tank System a 10 … awesome product. My husband has not had a regular cigarette in two weeks, and he has tried everything! Two Thumbs Up!!!

    1. Hi K.W. Always good to get feedback from others who have tested Halo’s Triton Tank System. Halo’s been getting some “best products” awards too. – from PC Magazine for example. Thanks!
