Great kitby chad
Feels great to the touch, great mouth piece feel, vapes great.

Having owned Blu and V2 prior to buying the G6 starter kit, I have a reasonable gauge reviewing this product.
I really liked the PCC that came with the Blu kit as its easy access (cigarette pack like) flip top lid, slots for two batteries one with a cartomizer attached and another charging slot you don't need to screw a battery into and plenty of slots for spare cartomizers. Their Magnificent Menthol flavor is quite tasty although lacking much of a menthol kick. That is where the benefits of Blu ends. The well designed but poorly built PCC stopped taking a charge or even serving as a pass through charger before I could finish the first pack of cartomizers. The batteries last less than half of the G6 and will cause the cartomizer to burn your lips if taking too long of a drag. The vapor quantity and flavor quickly fades on the cartomizers with nearly no throat hit from the get go and they have limited flavors with no refillable cartomizers. Blu prefilled cartomizers cost more than G6 and last shorter.
The battery performance of the V2 is comparable with the G6, but the fine details Halo adds like the soft touch finish, realistic fading LED, and recessed manual battery button gives it more of a premium look and feel. The menthol cartomizers from V2 may offer a decent menthol feel with powerful throat hit, but have a strong chemical taste and quickly looses it's menthol effect. Seeing all the V2 adds plastered throughout e cig review sites and the mediocre quality of their cartomizers at best, makes you wonder the kick backs these sites receive from V2's marketing department to always ranking them as the best.
G6 offers cartomizers that truly do provide a nice warmer vape with good vapor output. The duration these cartomizers keep their flavor seems like an eternity compared to others.
I purchased one G6 manual and one G6 auto battery. The manual does provide more vapor as you can prime it to have vape ready before puffing in. The auto still works great and is handy to have during times your busy and needing to vape hands free. I actually prefer the auto when using a clearomizers, it hits too hard with the manual battery. Overall, the G6 is a wonderful product that exceeds the competition in every way while costing less and unlike their counterparts being made in the USA.

Pinch me...by Josh in New Yorkistan
After trying my first disposable e-cig from the gas station, I said to myself, "THIS can't be what all the hype is about." I began my quest for a QUALITY cig-a-like as I imagine most people do...with a cursory web search. Most of the web sites pointed me to various rankings of the same few e-cigs, making a decision fairly difficult, as I didn't see much difference between any of them. It wasn't until I started reading some individual blogs and watching some video reviews that I found my way to this website. And I'm glad I did.
I ordered the G6 kit in white with 1 manual, 1 automatic battery, along with some tan blank carts and the variety pack of juice. It only took 3 days to land in my mailbox. I couldn't believe how well these replicated the throat hit of even the Pall Mall menthols. Compared to the crap disposable I had tried, these were close to a religious experience.
I have yet to kill a cart or one of the batteries in a single day.
So far, I have tried 7 different flavors, and while I have yet to taste a flavor that I dislike, I was surprised by how much I liked the ones that I had least expected to enjoy and also to not be a huge fan of the ones that I was looking forward to. The fact that these juices are made in the USA is a big selling point for me. The vapor is thick and smoke-like, but dissipates quickly enough to keep the wife's skepticism under control. I like to take nice long drags for that good throat hit, and I am really impressed by how long the batteries last despite this. Overall, I couldn't be happier, and I can't wait to get my friends and family on board with Halo.

Good first ecigby Shawn
After reading many positive reviews online, I decided Halo would be a good first ecig. I wanted the classic white kit because I didn't want to be too obvious in public yet. I chose the standard and mini automatic batteries with the Tribeca cartos and I am very happy with my decision. I would consider myself to be a light to moderate user and the standard battery goes for two days and the mini will go a whole day and into the second without a problem. The cartos have lasted me almost three days before the taste is totally gone.
The only thing I would have to say disappointed me was the charger, the USB is very loose when plugged into the wall unit. It is to the point where when I have the standard battery charging I have to check it periodically to make sure it hasn't pulled itself out and lost connection (thankfully it has not been much of a problem with the mini).
Overall my first experience with ecigs has been a positive and pleasant one thanks to Halo. I am now experimenting with the mini tanks and LR cartos and trying out different flavors to find my favorite. So far the Tribeca and Freedom are leading with Voodoo coming in a close third.

Very nice product!by Jason
A buddy of mine introduced me to vaping a few weeks ago and after buying some ecigs from a local convenience store I was sold on vaping.
I started to do some research on which reusable ecigs are the best as buying disposable ones from the convenience store was getting expensive. After reading many reviews on various websites and watching a lot of videos on YouTube I decided Halo was the brand I wanted to try. I am happy to say I wasn't disappointed.
Along with the G6 starter kit I bought 2 different e-liquid sample packs. The vapor and throat hit from their e-liquids is top notch and the actual ecig has a nice rubber coating. I bought the classic white automatic batteries as I thought the subtle thin lines on the white battery added a touch of class and that this setup would be as close as possible to emulating the real thing.
The kit came in a nice black box with the the word "Halo" on it. The e-liquid came packed in a nice looking tin can. Everything was snugly packed so the contents don't bounce all over the place but still easy to remove. To top it off I think the price was fair.
To conclude I highly recommend Halo products. Much better than store bought ecigs.

Long Time Smokerby Deb
I was skeptical about ecigs, but did some research and settled on Halo. I cannot believe how much I like this product! I got the starter kit (and a sample tin) 3 or 4 weeks ago and I've been experimenting ever since. I know it's silly, but I love all of the choices I have with my starter kit and sample juices. It's like accessorizing.

The best cigalike on the market.by Brad
I have literally wasted hundreds of $ on other brands of ecig batteries and starter kits and have been unsatisfied with the either the quality, the look, the vapor production, how long they last before needing a recharge or all the above! I prefer cigalikes over large mods as I work out in public view all day and don't wish to be seen vaping on some space age bong looking device. I can honestly say the Halo G6 is by far the best mini ecig I have ever used, The battery has a nice soft quality rubber feel with good grip and very light, it lasts hours before needing a recharge which I find incredible for such a small device, the cartomizers are of the highest quality I have ever used as they are bottom coil, produce an amazing amount of vapor throat hit and taste, they never burn the polyfill unlike most other brands which is a huge plus and they can easily be refilled many times without dropping in performance. I purchased some authentic tan cartomizers to go with the white G6 battery and I must say it is the most realistic looking device yet and when used out in public no one will give you a second look. All I can say is I wished I had read online reviews about the G6 before I wasted so much money on other low quality ecigs, I can promise you the Halo G6 will not disappoint.

The options and customization is great!by Shane
After shopping around and watching many reviews on YouTube, I received my Halo G6 starter kit today. The thing I love about Halo is how you can customize your kit with all the different battery options, cartridge options, and colors. I ordered a 78mm manual and a 65mm automatic so I have both battery styles to choose from and since the automatic I ordered is smaller, it will be my primary pocket companion.
Everything is working just as expected straight out of the box. The batteries even had a charge in them so I could try them out and try out the different flavors I ordered right away. I also ordered the low resistance blanks.
The only issue I have with the whole kit right now is the rubbery end on the low resistance blanks. They seem like they may be a little leaky but I haven't thoroughly tested that in my pocket yet. Also, the first time I filled them I pushed them in too far and had to use something to get them out. Overall, they are still probably better than other options. I have tried two other brands so far and I do like this whole setup better than them. This is why I gave it 4 stars though.
There are soo many flavors I am excited to try and I am also hoping to order the Triton Tank for my primary at home and driving ecig. Thanks Halo for being an awesome choice so far!

Best i have usedby Robert
I used another brand about 2 years ago I liked it but the cartomizers were expensive and I got the burnt taste a lot. I'm not sure if I can rag another brand but it was named after a color that was not red but has just as many letters. At any rate I got the blank cartomizers so I can refill with the e-liquids. I am very satisfied with the battery life and the tastes of Torque 56. Also to mention is the price the starter kit is a lot that attracted me to this company but I was sold with the amount of thought put in to refill process to include e-liquids to the successful attempt to get away from the burn taste. I got one manual and one automatic battery. Like them both. My wife and I both use this product. I am thoroughly impressed.

Compared to a 510by Paul
I recently received a 510 battery and accessories and noticed a funky plastic taste when using the cartridges. That hasn't been the case with the G6 I received yesterday! The second automatic battery is charging for its eight hour treatment to join the party! I have the clear mini tank on order that should give even longer enjoyment between refills. I bought the G6 because of the favorable review I read and the use of USA components in the e-liquids.
