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
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.
