The Halo Triton Tank – For Beginner and Intermediate Level Vapers
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 still available, but it lacks the modern features of today’s vaporizers and pod vapes.
When I got my first Triton Tank, years ago, I was impressed with the sturdy packaging, which looked like a jewelry case. Unfortunately, it did have a strange “packaging” aroma I didn’t like.
The Triton Tank starter kit no longer comes with two batteries. Gone also are the 4 color choices. You can now order your vape in either black or silver. The kit still includes the battery, tank, coil, and usb charging cable.
Halo Triton’s tanks (clearomizers) are solid and easy to fill. It holds a modest 2ml of e-liquid, so expect to fill it often.
The earlier version of the tank had a top fill system which helped avoid leaking. Now you have to fill it from the bottom. There’s always 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.
One big downside to a Halo Clearomizer is that it’s made of plastic, not pyrex. It is; however 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, but you can use e-liquids from any company.
Inside the tank there’s a coil which heats the liquids. The Triton Tank kit now comes with a 1.5 ohm coil. This is hotter than the original 2.4 ohm coil which was mid-range and made for a pleasant vape with great vapor. Also, people have complained that the newer coils now offered don’t last very long. Of course, it can depend on what e-liquid you use. Thicker e-liquids can shorten the life of your atomizer.
SPEAKING OF E-LIQUIDS…
The vapor industry is changing – not necessarily for the better for seasoned vapers. Halo is, unfortunately ahead of new FDA regulations and, (unlike Vaporfi) has discontinued all flavors except for Tobacco.
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.
All in all the Triton Tank System is a quality basic vaporizer that delivers good vapor production. I rate it a 6.0.
