Using over a weekby Daniel
The batteries last a long time. Varies per user of course, but for me it lasts about 3 nights. I use nights because that is when I usually vape after work. Probably about 2 hours a day which by no means a heavy user, but that is plenty of hours. With two batteries, I find it no problem to have a fully charged one at all times. I really like the coating on the batteries. The final touch of the G6 logo just adds to the quality feel of these batteries.

Best pen style ecig batteries I've usedby JD
I have a couple of the automatics and a couple of the manual batteries and love them. I've tried other companies manuals and hated them so when I got my G6 I originally only had the autos (which are fantastic). I started using the mini tanks and decided to give the manuals a try and they are great. The button is perfectly placed and it's not huge (like others I have tried) so you don't ever set hit it by accident (like if you are rolling it around in your fingers which I tend to do).

No Complaintsby MOCO
I currently own a 78mm black automatic and a 78mm black manual battery. After I charged them for 8 hours I tried them out for about 20 minutes then gave them 1 more hour charge to prep this power house. I have to say that I am completely satisfied with this battery. They are measured at approximately 3 1/4 inches in length. I just ordered 2 of the 65mm blue batteries to try them out as well. I have no clue how many puffs my battery gets, but I do know it lasts me over a day on a charge. I would say the longer the battery is the more puffs you can enjoy. The case of this batter has somewhat of a rubber material that I love because it doesn't slip out of your fingers like some brands (don't ever change this). The G6 right on the battery is a nice touch too.

Battery Life was Greatby Daniel
I ordered my starter kit one week ago with the black batteries. One automatic battery and one manual battery with the button. I think it is a great service to allow customers to pick one automatic battery and one manual in the starter kit. The option of battery selection when ordering the starter kit is a great option. I have been using both for about three days and they both perform very well. I like using the manual for more control with vapor production, but at the same time, I think the automatic is just as good. It really depends on what you prefer and how you use or carry your G6.
Charging them doesn't take longer than the one you're using to run out of power. So for me, running out of battery life is not an issue. The coating on the batteries is very high quality and pushes Halo's product to some of the best batteries on the market. I look forward to buying the green and blue ones when I need more batteries. Good job Halo!

Skip the mini (mostly)by Travis
At around a month of use I'll add the following review:
I really love the standard size batteries. After falling in love with the G6, I actually ordered a second starter kit to get a backup USB charger and also a couple more batteries to keep the down time to a minimum. Because I had ordered a couple of mini tanks to try, I ordered a pair of the short batteries hoping to make carrying the G6 easier at work. The result?
The standard size batteries are excellent. They last me all day long at work. The G6 with a mini-tank attached and a standard battery fit my shirt pocket just fine. I still find myself bringing a second tank (and battery) just in case I run dry. I haven't drained the battery at work yet but see below...
The mini batteries... They do have their place. When I need to go ultra stealth mode... We just went out to dinner at an upscale restaurant last week. No worries, I just packed a fully filled cart w/ a mini battery (w/ a full charge) and slipped it into my pants pocket. Quite convenient (it actually fit in my watch pocket). Otherwise, the mini battery just doesn't seem to have the power of the standard. Not as much "crackle" when you fire it up. I haven't done a voltage test but I'd guess it's down on power from a 78mm. The charge length isn't up to the bigger battery as well. I have drained a mini out at work and was glad I brought a spare.
I have debated getting this one. Mostly for the house as it is longer. My current plan is to bypass this and just upgrade to the Triton for home usage. It is maybe 15-20 dollars more for charger/batt difference. Still, that Triton starter kit is nice. I just wish they offered multiple color options on the tanks, as they do on carts for the G6. The Triton Battery also works on all the mini-tanks and carts from my G6. A win-win situation.
I'd give the standard size battery 5 stars. A really good size to power ratio. An excellent battery! The minis? 3.5 stars. Good for an occasional outing. Otherwise the difference in size just isn't worth it IMO. It's not that much smaller.
I will give Halo 5 stars. They offer products that work well, at a reasonable price, with many options....

Great productby halofan
I've been using the 78mm battery with the mini tank and I love it. Lots of flavor and vapor. The battery lasts about 10 hours for me and fits nicely in my pocket while at work. It takes about 3 hours to recharge. I highly recommend this because it's a great product.

78mm Automaticby Jason
Battery constructed well. Nice rubberized coating. Cool blue LED. Lasts me most of the day. But I highly advise keeping an extra on hand. On my first day taking this to work, it died on my ride home. Couldn't have happened at a worse time. For what its worth, I noticed I vape extra long hits because every vape the LED blinks after 4-5 seconds(which is some kind of shut off feature). All i can say about this is why? Also noticed I get the best hit fresh off the charger. Good hits for maybe 10 puffs then approx half strength the rest of the day. Ordered the XL battery in manual, hopefully fixes my issue.

The 102mmby Iceburgh71
Great battery! The G6's (mini and std) last long as it is, but these a VERY long time! I got 2 just to keep in the house to relax and vape. They are very long, but I knew that when I got them. I don't carry them around, again just use around the house. They will not fit in the G6 carry case or the personal charger, but once again...I didn't buy them for that. Excellent battery if you want something for home to relax with!

Almost as good as the tritonby Daniel
Buy a 78 manual battery for use with G6 mini tank provides an excellent alternative that give you close to the same vapor experience as the Triton. Best on the market.

Great quality batteryby michael
I have the manual standard and 65mm automatic battery that came with my starter pack. The batteries are of good quality and I really like the rubber textured finish on it for good grip. Personally, I prefer the manual bat over the automatic. The manual seems to have a more consistent heating mechanism and is much easier for me than the automatic. I like the recessed button on the manual which is a very smart design as there are less chances of it getting pressed accidentally while in my pocket. As for the automatic 65mm which you have to activate through puffing takes a little bit more effort to vape and the heating mechanism is totally dependent on how strong you puff causing some inconsistency of the quality of vapor produced. Ofcourse, this is a matter of preference and personally, I prefer the manual for easier vaping and for a better, more consistent vapor production.
Halo is brilliant to have options for manual and automatic batteries as they can cater to those different vaping preferences of their patrons. I wonder what the popular choice is...manual or automatic.
