The Halo G6 E-Cigarette – One of Our Highest Rated Electronic Cigarettes
I was very excited to have the opportunity to try out The Halo G6 E-Cigarette since I’ve been hearing a lot about their quality cartomizers and e-liquids. 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’s site has so many e-cig styles and e-liquid choices it can seem a bit overwhelming. They have many attractive product photos, and I’m happy to say they have improved the product descriptions, particularly starter kits.
Halo’s G6 Cartomizer
The Halo G6 start kit is highly customizable. You not only choose your battery colors and sizes, you can choose either pre-filled cartomizers or blank cartomizers you fill with any e-liquid.
Yes you can re-fill Halo’s cartomizers! What sets them apart from other refillable cartridges is that they last a long time. That means you can fill them many times before you have to buy new ones.
The Halo E-liquid Sampler is a good way to preview Halo’s smoke juice without having to invest in a larger bottle of each flavor. Each e-liquid sample pack contains six 10ml bottles. If you choose to order single bottles, the cost is $5.99. Prices can change, so check the site.
Halo Cigs G6 Battery
I was immediately impressed with the design of the battery which has a smooth brushed metal finish that’s very classy. 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. This an important safety feature. 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 US made under strict lab quality control. No offense to Chinese manufacturers, but US e-liquids are far superior to any e-juice made in China. Halo’s flavors happen to be some of the tastiest and most popular in the world. (yes they ship internationally).
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.
Putting all favorites aside, I rate the Halo’s G6 an impressive 9.8 stars. PC Magazine agrees, as they have awarded the G6 their coveted Editor’s Choice Award.
