Green Smoke Review 2018
8.8our score

The international electronic cigarette distributor, Green Smoke has more recently made its presence known in the United Kingdom with a facility located in Middlesex. Green Smoke (GS) features a 2-piece e-cigarette system eliminating the hassle of its three-piece siblings offered by competitors. A variety of 7 long lasting cartomiser flavours from basic tobacco to mocha mist are available, which they claim has an upward limit of 360 puffs. GS currently offers the option of three kits: Express, Pro and Love Birds. As its name implies, the Love Birds kit is designed for smoking couple. In this Green Smoke review, we’ll examine their Express Kit as it will appeal to the majority of e-cig buyers with a market price of £55.

Green Smoke Review – Aesthetics

Green Smoke’s express kit arrived in a box that seems more appropriate for an herbal supplement than an electronic cigarette. A large image of a cigarette spans the backside of the box and a false latch opens the box from the front. I appreciated the organized layout of the express kit comes and the concise user guide contained. A tips card, 5 cartomisers, USB e-cigarette, charging adapter, and rechargeable battery are included with the express kit.

“Very similar in appearance to that of traditional cigarettes. So much so that you may experience complaints”

We found Green Smoke’s e-cigarettes (both long & short) to be very similar in appearance to that of traditional cigarettes. So much so that you may experience complaints when you pull one of these out in a smoking-prohibited area. Similar to other e-cigs, their brand name can be read encircling the battery on the end opposite that of the LED. Gold-colored connection threads on the battery looked of excellent build quality and a personal charging case is absent from Green Smoke’s Kit as they seem to be going for a more minimal approach? Oddly-enough, their batteries screw directly into their USB adapted which can then be plugged into a wall adapter. Barring its practicality, the USB cigarette appeared very cheap with a black cable running out of the LED end of the battery.

Green Smoke Review – Flavour & Vaping

Express Kit customers are given their choice of flavour and strength. Cartomiser flavours are offered in five variants: Absolute Tobacco, Menthol Ice, Mocha Mist, Red Label Tobacco, Smooth Chocolate, Tobacco Gold and Vanilla Dreams. Five tiers of nicotine strengths are also available as follows: zero (0%), ultra light (0.6%), light (1.2%), full (1.8%), strong (2.4%). Flavours Mocha Mist and Tobacco Gold are not currently offered in strong and ultra light strengths, respectively. These options are very generous considering most other starter kits are limited to a preselected assortment of strength and flavours.

Green Smoke’s convenient 2-piece system simplifies electronic cigarettes by only requiring the user to twist the battery thread into the cartomiser followed by inhalation. Most users will appreciate this feature as it makes converting from traditional cigarettes even easier. Taking a drag instantly switches on the embedded atomizer delivering a pleasant vape. I found Green Smoke’s advertised long lasting cartomiser maximum of 350 puffs a gross exaggeration (most likely conducted in a very unrealistic setting). Gross exaggeration or not, I was able to achieve roughly 180 puffs from each cartomiser, which can still be regarded as above average.

green-smoke-love-birds-kit green-smoke-disposables I opted for the light strength cartomisers (1.2% nicotine content) and preferred the Red Label over the Absolute tobacco. Vanilla dreams left a taste similar to that of a vanilla soda which some may like. Otherwise, their other flavours did not stand out (good or bad) from their competitors. Potential buyers should also note that Green Smoke will void their 1-year warranty if you attempt to refill their single-use cartomisers.

Green Smoke Review – Technical Features & Battery Life

green-smoke-battery green-smoke-cartomizers Battery life was better than average with roughly 3 hour of vaping on a single charge. Green Smoke offers the option of either a short or long battery with the latter experiencing a longer charging time attributable to its higher millampere-hour (160mAh v 270mAh). To charge the battery using a mains outlet, it must be first screwed directly onto the USB adapted, which can then be plugged into the mains adapter (very similar to a lot of smartphones). I found the outlet situation to be somewhat frustrating as this means you will need to bend down to plug your electronic cigarette directly into the outlet every time you need a charge. Why offer a two-piece solution to the e-cig but a three-piece problem when charging? Battery life was better than average with roughly 3 hour of vaping on a single charge. Although ugly, the USB-linked secondary cigarette offers users the ability to not worry about recharging while near a power source.

    I never thought I could quit smoking until

    cigarette without all of the harmful chemicals.

    Great value for money and has helped me
    save money. Easy to use and quality of
    product is really good too.

    I have not wanted a regular cigarette since
    trying this fab E- cigarette! Very easy to use with fantastic flavours.

    Definitely the best electronic cigarette I have ever tried.A high quality product through and through.

  • Jase

    I’m thinking about giving this e-cigarette a try. I was really disappointed with the quality and the horrible taste of the last one I bought so I’m happy to read such good reviews for this one.

  • Becky

    So I can see that this e-cigarette has the best overall rating, but if you were scoring based on taste alone would it win?

    The last brand I bought had such a sickly, horrible taste it made me feel sick whenever I used it.

    I would love to try this one if I knew for sure the taste was good!

  • George B.

    I’ve had the express kit for a while now and agree that it’s one of the better ecig starter kits. If they keep up their quality control and customer service, they have a loyal customer for life!

  • David – K

    Brilliant, well manufacturered product. I have only used the tobacco full and the best one is Red Label, very similar to roll-ups after smoking them for 50 years. I like the charging system, very easy and last a long time.

  • Ajay

    I just ordered a green smoke kit, still waiting… Currently using the Sky Cig but read Green smoke are better, so we shall see… sky cig ok, but batteries seem poor, so be good to compare… What I have found is with green smoke is they dont email you to say your order is dispatched…. Ummmm….. I have smoked normal bad fags for 27 years and since ecigs haven’t touched or wanted any bad fags, which is brill…

  • Trui

    The country where I live does not sell these products. On a visit to the UK I bought online 240 absolute tobacco cartridges plus batteries to take home. All the cartridges are from the same badge number and at least 1 of the 5 cartridges is faulty. Faulty means they only last 6 hours instead of the 24 hours, for my normal usage. They, Green Smoke, reacted very good and send straight away 20 new cartridges. No it will not cover all the faulty cartridges, but I hope they will check their factory in China to deliver good and equal quality for all the cartridges. Overall I am happy with GS and I did not touch an analog for 4 months now.

  • Robert Spurlock

    Really easy to set up, use and charge. A great
    price for a great tasting product.

    So impressed! Smoke, vapour production and throat hit are superb.

  • Dominique Kim

    Brilliant! I was so surprised by how great these were.
    Have helped me cut down on smoking and I’ve saved so much money!

    High quality, great taste and long lasting – At last a
    great E-cig that is right for me.

  • Steven J.

    I’ve just ordered my second set of tobacco flavoured refills for my green smoke express kit and couldn’t be happier. Thanks for the insightful review, Elizabeth!

    Some advice: The discount code listed above seems to be the highest available and has worked every time i’ve placed an order.

  • Samuel Hart

    After speaking to the very helpful people
    at The clean smoke company. I decided to give these a try and am very pleased I
    did. The price is great for what you get and this is a great starter kit- look
    forward to my next order!.

    After trying to give up smoking for a while
    now, I tried these on a recommendation. Fab! Great taste, super vapour production
    and really gives me that flavour I need.

    long lasting battery, full of flavour,
    tastes good and great price- what more do you need?!

  • James Martin

    Used these but I couldn’t get away from the feeling of needing a real cig unfortunately and have stopped using.

  • Lion

    Yes, the positives outweigh the negatives for me. I will be buying Green Smoke very soon!

  • George Halvorson

    Easy to see why this is so popular! Superior vapour volume and an outstanding
    taste. Really easy to use and lasts a long time too. Great value for money.

  • Jack Stas

    This is a great e-cigarette company. I made my first purchase from them in 2012 and I have been completely satisfied with it ever since. Highly recommend!
