Halo Triton E-Cigarette Editors Review
If you’ve been to ECCR before, you probably already know that we’re big fans of Halo products. This small New Jersey-based company has come out of nowhere to literally make a solid name for themselves in the electronic cigarette industry.
Halo was founded in 2009 and quickly gained a positive reputation for making high quality smoke juices (eliquid/ejuice). Their secret? It’s the quality ingredients that they use. Simply put, better ingredients make better smoke juice. It’s been a Halo commitment from the beginning.
We came across Halo last year when we reviewed the Halo G6 Electronic Starter Kit. Little did we know, as good as Halo’s smoke juices taste in the Halo G6 cartomizers and mini-tanks… it was about to get a whole lot better!
Enter Halo’s Triton Tank System.
What You Get
Priced at $64.99, the Halo Triton Tank System Includes:
- Pick from 11 unique colors
- 2 Batteries – Manual – 400mah or 650mah
- 1 Wall Charger
- 1 USB Adapter
- 2x Crystal Clear Tanks (Clearomizers)
- 1x Cone (35mm)
- 1 Sleek Black Halo Carrying Case
Packaging and Presentation
This is one of the areas where Halo really shines. Everything from their carrying cases to their wall charger seems to be designed with the words “cool” and “cutting-edge” in mind. It’s almost as if Halo has a serious aversion to making anything that looks like another company’s product.
That’s cool with us. We love it!
Yes, looks are shallow, but it sure does add to the excitement of using the brand. In our minds, the Halo brand is one of the most exciting brands out there. If you don’t believe us, just go check out their newly-designed website. It’s hot!
We also took some really sharp photos of the product. Yeah, we got a little jiggy-wit-it on the photos… but this product is just so sexy, we had to.
Major thumbs up for packaging and presentation.
Halo uses USPS priority shipping so you’ll be sure to get your new Halo kit in 2-3 days. Overseas customers will get their kit within a week to 10 days. There are options to speed up delivery as well if you’re just so excited that you need to get the kit into your hands faster.
We placed our order and almost immediately received an email with a tracking number. Tracking numbers are a real bonus as it takes the guesswork out when you’re itching to get your hands on the product.
Battery and Charger Performance
We ordered the Electric Lime Triton Tank System for the review. It’s one of 11 cool battery colors you can choose from. We chose the 400mah battery option so the unit would feel lighter when using it. The batteries do come in a 650mah option (when it’s in stock for any given kit color), so if you do want more battery life, it’s there as an option.
We also want to mention that there are even more Triton battery options if you go to the Triton Batteries section of the website. If 650mah batteries aren’t enough for you, there’s an option to order a 900mah and 1300mah variation of the Triton battery (in any of the 11 colors on offer). Battery power? Halo’s got you covered.
We were very impressed with the 400mah battery we received. We got some variations on puff counts but we went though enough battery cycles when testing and we’d have to say that it averages out to about 400 puffs per full charge on the 400mah battery. That’s very good and will last most vapers all day and into the next day. The 400mah battery is very light and performs great. We do have to say though, that there is a bit of a drop off in power for those last 75 puffs or so.
Still, it’s a great performer and it feels great in your hands just like the G6 battery does. It’s got the familiar light rubber coating on it that makes Halo batteries a pleasure to hold.
One note of importance: The Halo Triton USB charger is NOT interchangeable with the Halo G6 USB charger. In other words, don’t try to charge your G6 batteries on the Triton charger or vice-versa. It doesn’t work and can damage the batteries. The G6 USB charger has a G6 logo on it and the Triton charger has a simple Halo logo on it. If you own both, please be careful not to get them mixed up.
Battery charge times leveled out at about 2 hours and 15 minutes. Not too shabby for a 400mah battery. Especially when it will more than likely last you all day and into the next day.
Triton Tank Performance
The Halo Triton Tank System uses… you guessed it… tanks. Otherwise known as clearomizers.
For those of you that may be looking for a pre-filled cartomizer-based product, fear not. This kit is super easy to use and super easy to refill. We’ve even done a refill demonstration on the video review, so be sure to check it out up top.
The Triton tanks hold approximately 2.4 ml of smoke juice. Because the coil shaft protrudes above the top of the tank and into the mouthpiece, you can fill it up a bit more. We know there are vapers out there who may want bigger tanks, but in all honesty, it really doesn’t matter. It’s so quick and easy to refill, you can refill anywhere without a mess. If you’ve got a steady hand, you won’t even have to take the tank off the battery. It’s that simple.
We are sure that Halo will be adding new tanks and accessories as time moves on. They’re already talking about bottom coil tanks (which we are big fans of) that will make it easier to vape. You won’t have to tilt the battery up when puffing to saturate the wicks.
Speaking of wicks, we really haven’t been big fans of any clearo tank with wicks. Triton changed our mind a bit though and proved you can make a quality tank using long wicks. We were afraid upon successive puffs it would burn the wicks or coil, but it didn’t. As long as you refill when there’s about .6ml of eliquid in the tank, you should be able to refill up to 20 times before you would have to replace the tank.
With the .6ml refill point in mind, we’ve found that you will get approximately 220 puffs from full to .6 milliliters. If you run the tank down lower than that, you’ll get more puffs, but you may also run a risk of drying out the wicks and burning them or even burning out the coil. We wouldn’t risk it. It’s so easy to refill and you’ll save money by not having to replace the tanks so often.
But there is a better way. Halo has provided new coils (in different ohm/resistance configurations) on the website so that you can save money. Why replace a perfectly good tank every time when it’s so darn easy to just replace the coils?
Overall, the Triton tanks simply work.
If you’ve been using the Halo G6 cartomizers or mini-tanks with Halo ejuices, you are going to literally freak at how good Halo’s smoke juices are in the Triton Tank System. Seriously. It’s that good. Using the G6 and then going to the Triton is like having your nose stuffed up and not being able to fully taste something… then having your nose clear up and all the flavors come to life.
From the mad vapor production to the great throat kick, Halo’s Triton Tank System was made to showcase just how good their eliquids taste.

As stated above, the real star of the show is Halo’s e-liquid. When we say yummy, we mean yummy. They’ve done a great job creating some unique flavors and the vapor is just spot on.
The three favorites around the ECCR office (for the Triton specifically) are Tribeca, Subzero and Torque56. The Torque56 is a bold tobacco flavor that produces some of the best vapor and throat kick satisfaction that can be found. It’s quickly becoming the “everyday vape” flavor for the Triton at ECCR. If you love mad warm vapor with a great throat kick that provides top-notch nicotine satisfaction, you owe it to yourself to try the Torque56 flavor.
Seriously, we cannot state enough just how much we liked Halo’s e-liquid. The high quality ingredients along with the high grade nicotine they use really do make a difference. The satisfaction level is high and we feel this is the most important factor for any e-cigarette. Inhalation provides a full feeling and exhalation is pleasurable.
Overall, Halo has manged to pleasantly surprise us yet again. There are so many mediocre ecigarette companies and products out there… and only so much time to wade through all of them. When we hit upon a high quality product such as this one, we tend to rave a bit.
The Triton was simply an absolute pleasure to test and review. Yes, even WITH all of the clicking we had to do while vaping on it. It’s a solid product that is going to further Halo’s reputation as not only a top-notch ejuice supplier, but also a top-notch ecigarette company with top notch ecig products.
If you aren’t put off by an ecigarette product that doesn’t match the form of a real cigarette, and are open to refilling and choosing your own eliquids, this is the product for you.
We highly recommend the Halo Triton Tank System and we just know it’s going to put a huge satisfaction-induced smile on your face….
