The Halo G6 E-Cigarette – One of the First Electronic Cigarettes
Years ago I was very excited to have the opportunity to try out The Halo G6 E-Cigarette. Halo is a U.S. company that manufactures many of its products in the U.S.
They have several styles of e-cigarettes including the popular Triton Tank, (which I also reviewed), but I first tested the G6 model which looks more like a cigarette.
Halo Cig’s Website
Halo’s site has so many e-cig styles and choices it can seem a bit overwhelming. They have many attractive product photos, but I think they could do a better job with the product descriptions, particularly starter kits. Hopefully, this review will give you an idea of what you’re looking at when viewing the Halo website.
Halo’s G6 Cartomizer
The Halo G6 start kit is quite basic by today’s vape standards. Youchoose your battery color and size, and you can choose either pre-filled cartomizers or blank cartomizers you fill with any e-liquid.
Halo used to offer an E-liquid Sampler pack which was a good way to preview Halo’s vape juice without having to invest in a larger bottle of each flavor. This option is no longer available.
Halo Cigs G6 Battery
The design of the battery has a smooth brushed metal finish. Each G6 Starter kits comes with two automatic (78 mm) batteries. Automatic means the battery is activated when you take a puff. It will stay active for about 5 seconds – certainly long enough to inhale a good amount of vapor. The battery then turns off so it doesn’t overheat. Halo’s G6 battery lasted me 3-4 hours before I had to recharge.
The initial battery charge is 8 hours. You should vape for 20 minutes, then put it back on the charger for another 2 hrs to extend the life of battery. After the initial charge, the battery will recharge in about an hour.
Halo G6 Cartomizer is Refillable
Refilling a cart (as opposed to a tank) with e-juice is not for everyone, but Halo is one of the few companies that gives you that option. To add your e-liquid you first remove the plastic mouthpiece at the tip of the Cartomizer.
I noticed that unlike other Cartomizers that take e-liquid, the wick is not visible. Prefilled cartridges are very full, but once it runs out, it does take a bit of skill to fill this cartridge. You don’t want to get the juice directly into the Cartomizer hole, so if you have shaky hands, I recommend you forget the e-juice ritual and order another pack of cartridges.
Adding 10-15 drops seem to do the trick and there was no leakage, but don’t expect to start vaping immediately. The Halo G6 needs to absorb the liquid for about 15 minutes. Although Halo liquids have good vapor and outstanding taste, I discovered that the G6 burns through liquid like wildfire. I had to refill the cart every hour if I was vaping it regularly.
Halo’s liquids are all medicinal grade and made under strict lab quality control.
More on the G6 Vapor and Taste…
I tried Halo’s Prime 15 Tobacco flavor. It was smooth and full flavored. After reviewing so many bad tobacco flavored Cartomizers I was thrilled; in fact, this was the flavor that made me realize I would never smoke tobacco again. Vapor is about as high in volume as other ecigs, and it has a nice throat hit that’s full but not harsh, even on the modest 12 mg nicotine level I tested.
When you order, you get 2 automatic batteries in your choice of 5 colors; a 5-pack of Cartomizers – (your choice of flavors and nicotine levels), a USB adapter and a wall charger. If you like, you can choose blank Cartomizers. You also get a manual.
While I do have other favorites, I rate the Halo’s G6 an impressive 9.0 stars.
