Green Smoke Review
E-cigarettes can only serve as a replacement to tobacco cigarettes if they accurately emulate the smoking experience. Without the tip glowing on inhalation and a substantial amount of vapor, you’ll feel like you’re smoking a toy – a nicotine-dispensing novelty that could never convince you to ditch the tar-filled alternative. Green Smoke is one of the most respected e-cigarette producers around the world, and the Pro Kit offers a long and short battery, two packs of cartomizers, a USB charger (with car and mains adapters) and a USB cigarette. But does it really live up to the hype?

- New longer lasting cartridges

Packaging & Design
The box for the Pro Kit is stylish, sleek and proudly green, with a magnetic closing clasp and a two tier interior. It’s sturdy, so there’s no worry of any of your vital pieces of equipment being damaged in transit or storage. The top tier cradles the long and short batteries, and stores the (frankly, rarely if ever needed) instruction manual. In the box’s underbelly, you’ll find the USB charger, which is easy to use (just screw the battery in and plug it in) and fits comfortably into the plug and car adapters. The USB cigarette has a wire extending from the tip, which is unusual at first glance but it’s soon forgotten when your main batteries are charging and it comes to using it.
The e-cigarette itself is expertly designed, with simple screw-on cartridges and a thin golden band separating it from the battery. It’s lightweight for an e-cigarette, and it doesn’t take long to get used to the difference from an ordinary tobacco cigarette. The tip is green, and glows red on inhalation. One of the most pleasing aspects of taking a puff on the Green Smoke cigarette is how the tip gradually lights up and fades out before and afterwards. A blinking light when you inhale tells you that the battery needs a charge.
Green Smoke cartridges are available in five different strengths. The most nicotine-heavy option has a concentration of 2.4 percent (Strong), going down to 1.8 percent (Full), 1.2 percent (Light), 0.6 percent (Ultra-Light) and Zero, which is self-explanatory. After using the Full cartridges for the length of time I’d usually smoke an ordinary cigarette, I had my first nicotine rush since my first cigarette. The Light cartridges will be plenty for most smokers, and there are ample options for cutting down or for the heaviest nicotine addicts.
Flavors & Vapor
This is the area of the e-cigarette which really separates Green Smoke from the pack. The volume of vapor is genuinely comparable to a real cigarette, and when combined with the realistic shape and glowing tip, it accurately replicates smoking. Most e-cigarettes suggest taking a couple of short introductory puffs before the main one to produce more vapor, but with the Green Smoke e-cig this isn’t necessary.
The flavors are also well-crafted and arguably amongst the best in the industry. There are three varieties of tobacco flavor, Absolute Tobacco, Tobacco Gold and Red Label Tobacco (which is modeled after Marlboro Red), as well as the creatively named Mocha Mist, Menthol Ice, Vanilla Dreams and Smooth Chocolate. Although the Red Label packs more of a punch, the Gold has a tint of sweetness and the Absolute is much smoother. The Smooth Chocolate is the crowning achievement, though, being mellow but brought to life with subtle hints of cocoa. Read the full Green Smoke cartidges review.
The battery life on the Green Smoke cigarettes is great, and it’ll last you around a day without requiring re-charging. The shorter battery lasts for around 200 puffs, and the longer one stretches this to around 275. As mentioned earlier there is a plug-in USB e-cig you can use even if your main ones are charging. You never need to go without the e-cigarette.
Green Smoke has produced an astounding e-cigarette, one that genuinely reproduces the smoking experience minus the concoction of chemicals and the off-putting smell. There isn’t really any cause for complaint – perhaps a few more flavors would be appreciated, but that’s mainly because the ones they’ve produced are excellent on the whole and it’d be great to see what else they could do.
