Halo G6 Starter Kit Review - Awesome or Not?

A few weeks ago I promised I'd do a review of the Halo G6. And I made that promise for a reason. Long story short, a few regular readers of this site have been asking us to put up a review of it. One of them wrote us and said...

"Could you guys possibly do a Halo G6 review for everyone? It's awesome and more vapers should know about it! As a long-time vaper I can say that the G6 is definite must-have. So could you guys possibly do one sometime?"

OK, so who am I to argue? We welcome reader suggestions and enjoy providing unbiased e-cig reviews and vaping info. So with no further ado, here it is...

Halo G6 Starter Kit Review - Awesome or Not?

The Halo G6 Starter Kit by Halo Cigs gives you everything you need to start vaping (like a pro) immediately. The sleek look and feel of the Halo G6 batteries, with their glowing LED tip lights and brushed nickel accents, offer a truly sophisticated look and will match any style.

The G6 is similar in size to a traditional analog cigarette and is perfect for vapers who are looking for a compact e-cigarette device. It's especially ideal for new vapers and those wanting to get started with e-cigarettes.

The Halo G6 e-cigarette is sophisticated, elegant and beautiful. Its compact size offers both the feel and the familiarity of a traditional cigarette. This is especially perfect for those who want to make a super easy and seamless switch from smoking to vaping.

What Comes In The Halo G6 Starter Kit

The G6 Kit comes with the following:

2 G6 batteries (each in your choice of Manual or Automatic batteries)
1 Wall Charger
1 USB Adapter Charger
1 Cartomizer 5-Pack (your choice of flavor and nicotine level) 
1 Halo Case (E-cigarette Cary Case)
1 Halo Cigs Warranty - 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee
Vapor Production and Performance

Vapor production of the Halo G6 is absolutely awesome. It's got a smooth draw and a really good throat hit. It's a pleasure to vape and really does produce a lot of vapor. It's quite impressive, indeed.

As for the overall performance, let's just say that we're beyond impressed. Honestly, there isn't a single negative thing we can say about it. The vapor production is great, and the batteries really, really last.

Truth be told, Halo's G6 batteries definitely last quite a bit longer than other e-cig batteries of similar size. So all in all, vapor production and performance of the Halo G6 gets an easy 5 out of 5 stars.

Halo G6 Battery Options (Colors, LEDs and Sizes)

The Halo G6 Starter Kit offers you several choices when it comes to what batteries you want with your kit. There are several battery colors to choose from, as well as the option to have automatic batteries, manual batteries, or one of each.

Additionally, you can choose your battery size as well. The options are the 65mm Mini battery and the 78mm Standard battery. Note that the 78mm battery will last you longer (300 puffs per charge) than the 65mm battery (200 puffs per charge).

The Halo G6 starter kit battery options are as follows...

• Battery Colors: Jet Black, Midnight Blue, Titanium, Princess Pink, Deep Purple, Demon Red, Classic White, Electric Lime and Emerald Green
• Battery Sizes: 65mm Mini or 78mm Standard
• Battery Types: Manual or Automatic (you can get one of each if you like!)

The batteries have a real "premium feel" about them. They have a "rubberized" non-slip finish that not only feels good between your fingers, but also looks really great as well. The rubberized finish helps to prevent them from slipping out of your hands accidentally. Too bad more e-cig brands don't utilize such premium finishes.

Additionally, the Halo G6 battery has brushed nickel accents that really set them off, aesthetically. The accents are a nice design element and certainly add some extra coolness to G6's overall appearance.

Halo G6 Mini Wall Charger (Included)

The Halo G6 starter kit also comes with the the Mini Wall Charger, which charges your G6 via any standard 110v (USA) outlet. The wall charger works in conjunction with the USB charger.

Halo G6 Mini Wall Charger (Included)

Charging is fast and easy. To charge your G6 batteries, simply screw the battery into the USB Charger and plug it into the USB port on the wall charger. Then, just plug it into a wall outlet.

The LED tip light of the battery will stay lit while it's charging. When the battery is fully charged, the LED light will go out. And then it's time to vape! :)

Halo G6 USB Charger (Included)

The starter kit also comes with Halo's USB Charger. The USB charger allows you to charge your G6 by simply plugging it into any USB port.

In other words, you can charge it via your laptop, your desktop computer, Xbox, PS3, etc. The USB Charger will plug into any standard USB port.

Halo G6 USB Charger (Included with the G6 Starter Kit)

The LED tip light of the battery will stay lit while it's charging, and will go out when charging is complete. The USB Charger is cool and convenient, and allows you to charge your G6 e-cig with various electronic devices via their USB ports.

Halo G6 Pre-filled Cartomizers

The G6 starter kit also includes a pack of cartomizers (a 5-Pack) in your choice of flavor and nicotine strength. 

The current flavor choices are: Turkish Tobacco, HX3, Belgian Cocoa, Prime15, Malibu, Menthol Ice, Torque56 and Tribeca.

The nicotine level options are: 24 mg (XHigh), 18 mg (High), 12 mg (Medium), 6 mg (Low) and 00 mg (No Nicotine).

Note: Of course, Halo Cigs also offers many other flavors in their e-liquid. Currently, there are over 20 different awesome e-liquid flavors to choose from - and of which are Made in the USA.

Halo G6 Mini Tanks

Also available are the awesome G6 Mini Tanks (clearomizers). Basically, the Mini Tanks give you a higher performance solution over standard cartomizers. You can easily fill and refill these clearomizers with the e-liquid of your choice and enjoy vaping to its fullest.

The Halo G6 Mini Tanks hold 1 ml of e-liquid and are extremely easy to fill. To fill the Mini Tank, simply unscrew and remove the black mouthpiece, drip your e-liquid into the tank (avoiding the center hole of the coil assembly), and screw the mouthpiece back on. It's that simple!

The G6 Mini Tanks are basically a smaller version of the Halo Triton Tanks (which we absolutely love!). And though they're an accessory and not included in the starter kit, we definitely recommend getting at least one G6 Mini Tank (along with some Halo e-liquid) to play around with. Trust me, using refillable tanks really adds to the overall vaping experience. :)

Halo G6 Starter Kit Review - Overall Impressions

Ah, the moment of truth. Are you ready?

Without a doubt, the Halo G6 starter kit is awesome all around. It's been a long time since we've been so impressed by an e-cigarette starter kit in regard to performance, price, reliability, options and ease of use.

Overall, the quality and performance is nothing less than superb. Vapor production is awesome, flavor is awesome, and the batteries really last. So we have no doubt that you'll both love and enjoy it as well. :)

Here's a quick Halo G6 review rundown:

• Product quality: Excellent. Top quality all around.
• Vapor production: Excellent. Lots of thick vapor.
• Battery life: Excellent battery life. Easily lasts all day or longer.
• Appearance: Sleek and very attractive for sure.

And if you don't want to take just our word for it, be sure to check out the Halo G6 reviews from other vapers who've purchased it! -Just look to the right of the 5-star rating and click the "Reviews" link to read the reviews from actual Halo customers. Note that each G6 Starter Kit color has its own set of customer reviews.

Bottom line, if you're looking for an e-cigarette that performs really, really well, then be sure to check out the Halo G6.


Happy vaping!

PS: Many thanks to our readers who urged us to do this review. You guys rock! :)

California Bill SB 648 (E-cigarette Usage Ban) Update

A couple weeks back I wrote about California bill SB 648, a ridiculous bill that would declare e-cigarettes as "hazardous to the health of the general public" and include them in all future smoking bans passed in California.

Well, here's an update to what's currently going on with the proposed bill and how you can help to defeat it...

SB 648 UPDATE: The Senate Health Committee moved SB 648 out of committee on April 17th by a 6-2 vote.

SB 648 is now scheduled for a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 30th. The hearing takes place at 1:30 PM in room 112.

How To Help Stop This Bill!

If you're a California resident, be sure to submit (or resubmit) your testimony in opposition to SB 648 by emailing it directly to the Judiciary Committee at: ronak.daylami@sen.ca.gov.

Also, be sure to put "SB 648 Testimony" in the subject line and include your name and city.

Video: To watch the hearing on SB 648 that took place on April 17th, click below (the portion covering e-cigarettes begins at the 34:16 minute mark). CASAA Legislative Director, Gregory Conley, was a featured speaker, as was Father Jack Kearney of the California Association for Alcohol & Drug Educators (CAADE).


Stay Informed

You can keep up-to-date on California bill SB 648 by checking this site. We'll add updates as we get them. Also, be sure to check out the CASAA blog post on this matter and follow them on Twitter (@CASAAmedia).

Full Vapor Website Updates And Changes

If you're a regular reader of this blog, then you know how much I love and appreciate you. Without question, you guys are the friggin' best! :)

And so, and in order to make things as easy as possible for you to find and read, I spent the last two days going over this site (very meticulously) and identifying certain areas that I could improve upon for you.

Unfortunately, I found several areas that I felt needed at least some sort of improvement. Dammit all! :P

But as painstaking as it was, I finally completed most of those changes. -Btw, it's 7:37 a.m. right now...and I haven't even been to sleep yet.

Anyway, here are some of the main pages I've updated & improved upon:

E-cigarette Starter Kits - URL change and content improvement
Coupon Codes - Overall layout improvement and content improvement
E-liquid & Flavor Cartridges - URL change and page title change. Also updated and improved page content and overall layout.
FAQs - URL change and page title change. Also improved page content.

So yeah, that's all been completed. Obviously, I worked on them first since they're the "main navigation" pages for the site.

Dead Links?

Please report any dead links by leaving a comment below! Since I changed so many URLs, I'm sure there's at least a couple dead links are hiding around here somewhere. Such is the nature of site upgrades like this.

Anyway, I hope these changes make things a whole lot easier for you when it comes to reading reviews and news and finding the things you're looking for.

Happy vaping!

California Bill SB 648 Seeks to Ban E-cigarettes In Private Homes

Call To Action! Say "NO!" To California Bill 648!

The legislature in California has proposed a bill (SB 648) that would declare e-cigarettes as "hazardous to the health of the general public" and include them in all future smoking bans passed in California.

Worse yet, this bill, if passed, would also ban e-cigarette use in private dwellings by allowing landlords to prevent tenants from using e-cigarettes in their own homes! This is beyond ridiculous.

NOTE: Updates here!

CASAA News Blog:

"If enacted, this bill would:
Ban the use of vapor products wherever smoking is banned. Among those provisions most likely to impact users are those that would:

Permit landlords to ban e-cigarette use in private homes. (Section 2)
Ban e-cigarette use inside or within 20 feet of any public building or in a vehicle owned by the state. (Section 5)
Ban e-cigarette use in hospitals and medical facilities, except in specifically defined rooms where smoking is allowed (Sections 7 and 8)
Declares that the use of e-cigarettes is "hazardous to the health of the general public", and would include e-cigarettes in all future smoking bans passed in California. (Section 14)
Ban e-cigarette use in workplaces. Violations would be punishable by fines of $100, $200, and $500. (Section 15(
Ban e-cigarette use in railroads and air carriers. (Section 16)"

How To Attend The Hearing

California Bill 648 is scheduled for a hearing before the Senate Committee on April 17th at 1:30 p.m. in the State Capitol Building in Sacramento (Room # 4203 - The John L. Burton room).

The hearing is open to the public, and will allow for public comment at the end of the hearing. So if you live in or near Sacramento (or can travel there), please try your best to attend the hearing and have your say!

Important: Also, if you want to attend the hearing, be sure to contact CASAA at board@casaa.org with "California Testimony" in the subject line.

They need vapers throughout California to help organize trips to Sacramento so as many vapers as possible will be able to attend. So please help out in any way you can! :)

How To Submit Your Testimony

If you want to submit your testimony directly to the Health Committee, you can do so by emailing or faxing Senate Health Committee Assistant Alex Norring here:

Email: alex.norring@sen.ca.gov
Fax: (916) 324-0384

Note: The deadline for testimony is April 10th. If you're emailing, be sure to include "SB 648 Testimony" in the subject line.

Also, you can continue to contact individual California legislators up to and after the hearing.


For more information on the proposed bill, and for the full contact information of the Senate Health Committee members and Senate Judiciary Committee members, be sure to go to the CASAA News Blog here.

They've listed the address, phone number, email address and fax number for all committee members so you can easily contact them and have your say about this ridiculous bill. :)
