Ordinarily, I charge most of my devices on my PC, since it's always on. However, e-cigarette batteries tend to protrude nearly a foot from the front face of the computer. This leaves alot of scope for accidental damage. Halo was smart to circumvent this by positioning the USB slot on this wall adapter on the side. Did wonders for aesthetics too, as they were able to put their rather stylish logo smack in the middle of this sleek square. However, there is one drawback. The weight of the battery is pulling downward. And this too with the standard 650mAh battery.
The USB charger port should be on the TOP SIDE OF THE CHARGER so the pen charges vertically. My USB connector has cracked at the seams due to the weight of the battery pulling it down and the added stress on the connector when inserting and removing it from the charger. It is now held together with an elastic band which sort of detracts from the nice design concept.
The USB adapter plugs into this elegant little square on the side—a very thoughtful design! This way, while your e-cig is charging, it runs parallel to the wall instead of sticking straight out. I'm sure the design has saved many e-cigs from loss and or damage. Thanks again Halo-- yet another reason why you guys are awesome!
These chargers are great and worth the price. I bought the starter kit and the USB charger and the mini wall charger both come in the kit. Therefore, you can use them separately or place the USB charger into the mini wall charger and use that in the outlet. I use both chargers both ways and each way works fine; I don’t think one way or the other charges the battery faster. The fact the chargers are interchangeable makes it convenient because you might not always have access to a USB outlet. You twist the battery into the USB charger and when the battery is fully charged the light stays blue and doesn’t blink. I have been using Halo for about 2 years now and I cannot say one bad thing about this company. I still have the original mini wall charger that I bought two years ago in the starter kit; I haven’t had to replace it yet. I had to replace the USB section of it because I accidently stepped on it, but I had the old charger for over a year and it never broke and this new one for about a year and it is still working fine. It is very difficult to find a company that makes a good product, stands behind their products and will answer your questions when you need help. I asked a question on how long the warranty was for a battery once because it wasn’t working and customer service wrote me back explaining how to clean the battery with alcohol. They were very informative and helpful and I appreciate that they take time out to explain things. It really makes a difference. Everything I have ever bought from Halo has been made of good quality and lasted me for years. Thanks Halo – your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed!!!!
This is a simple wall AC adapter with a single USB port—output at 5V, 500mAh. It is a perfect match to the Halo USB Battery Charger for Triton Batteries. It only sticks out about an inch from the AC socket—nice black gloss finish with the Halo logo. It seems well built, attractive, and professional looking.
