I began my journey with Halo products in Feb/March 2017. Initially all was terrific, that is until my battery died after 80-days. As of August 2018, I've purchased and own five of these batteries. Yep, count 'em 5 batteries! Each new purchase was based upon the batteries failing consistently after daily use, often at the 3-month mark. I've not had any issues with the threads (I'm overly cautious when I screw it onto the tank), just outright failure. As another reviewer noted, it's as though it forgets what the button does, even after a full charge. And I don't abuse the battery nor am I a super heavy user. I usually go through 1-2 tankfuls per day. But this review does end on a bright note, albeit bizarre twist. One day I was about to toss out all of them and change to another style and/or brand of device .... but before trashing everything I started messing around with one of the battery's settings when I heard a distinct "click' sound, I pressed the button and WALLAH it worked. This "fix" worked on all five batteries. The "sweet spot" happens to be after the 30W setting, but just before the BYPASS and it must remain in that position or else dun dun dun ... nothing. So now I have five (5) working batteries, crippled in a sense, but functioning. I'm leaving my review at (1) one-star because this is, apparently, a huge issue for many users and my fix isn't the proper resolution. With proper care and charging practices they should last at least a year or more.
For the money, I suppose it's a good product, but I've had three of these batteries over the last six months and they've all conked out in their own special way. The threads on the first one quickly stripped, and could not hold the tank in place to deliver current to the coil. On the second, the button decided it didn't know the difference between on and off anymore. On the third, I've suddenly lost battery life entirely. In each case, I'm sure I could have done something to extend the life of the product, but then so could Halo, and that's the business they're in. If you're looking for a mobile vape to supplement your main squeeze, this might work out for you. But if it's meant to be your bff, I'd look for something more reliable.
There seems to be a battery malfunctioning after not much use (could be a new problem). After I purchased the twist, it worked for about 2 weeks before not being able to be charged and blinking once hitting the firing button. Bought another battery and the same issue occurred 2 days into usage. When the battery is working properly it is an incredible experience.
For the person complaining about colour choices, I didn’t realize that there were women colours and men’s colours. I am a woman and quite happy with my two stainless batteries, and the black with a black tank would make a nice 3rd :)
As for the leaking issue, it is not the battery that leaks, it is the tank because the fill holes are flush with the draw hole. The solution I found was buying these inexpensive plastic bottles on this website and using them to mix as well as filling the tank without spillage that creates the leaking. Now on to the battery which Is what this review is about. I like the fact it has warning lights telling in increments of flashes where the battery is at. I get about three bowls out of the battery cranked to the max. This is not my only device so not a big deal, plus it charges super fast. It is tall and easy to knock over on uneven surfaces. I have had plenty of knock-overs and zero breakage with the glass tip. On high it does throw some decent clouds depending on the flavour, but I care more about flavour and the battery is strong enough to provide it. Great for fluids that are not VG, so get more variety.
I wish there was a better color option. There aren't any female colors with this model, nor any of the other bigger mods, and I'm partial to my purple. I also wish the body had that iconic Halo rubbers texture/feel. I also had high hopes that they would have addressed issues with tanks leaking, but no dice, just as bad as the Triton. I can't stand wasting juice, but absolutely hate sucking it down my throat. Excess nicotine from juice is burning the tip of my tongue, and I have to take the device apart to clean it with paper towels & a Q-tip because, in order to make it through one 4ml tank, you have to take it apart & clean it at least 3-5 times, which is just a hassle. While I understand their reason, it also sucks how Halo doesn't interchange with other devices on the market because I've seen a lot of cool purple accessories that I'd like to get, but are useless. Maybe I just vape too much, but although fully charged, I haven't gotten my battery to last longer than 3 hours, even using the bypass option, which also sucks. Cloud production is awesome though! If you all would just make more colors, ABSOLUTELY FIX THE LEAKING ISSUES, and make it interchangeable so we can purchase accessories on the open market since you all won't provide them, than it would easily be a 10! Speaking of, Halo also needs start working on keeping the accessories that we need to keep our devices functioning in stock because I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating that is since we can't buy other brands to hold us over until they get their crap together. I tried to buy Triton 2 as a backup since I am constantly having to charge this one & am left without anything to vape, but not only does the color selection suck, they have been sold out of tanks for weeks, eliminating that as a viable option.
