The Triton II comes in a durable carrying case, with a spring-loaded cover, so users do not need to worry about the box opening and spilling out all its contents. Halo Cigs makes a great product. The Triton II is just what everyone wants for a starter kit: easy-to-use and attractive.
Some of the Triton II’s more endearing features are:
- A two hour charge time that lasts an entire day
- The adaptable mouthpiece lets users attach different clearomizers
- The battery has a separate set of threads at the top that allows to use different atomizers
- Two pre-installed stainless steel coils (with a third independent coil included)
- 15 second cut-off time for batteries
What’s in the box:
- User’s manual
- Two 700mAh batteries
- Two 2ml clearomizer tanks
- Three 0.75 ohms coil heads
- Two mouthpieces
- One adaptable mouthpiece
- Wall charger
- USB charger
Since it is designed as a starter kit, all the user needs to do to start vaping is charge the batteries (two full hours should do the trick) and then fill the tanks. When vapers are charging the batteries, the trigger mechanism will flash red for a few seconds. When the button turns a solid red, it is good to go as the battery is fully charged. The clearomizer tanks have the measurements printed on it so the user can decide how much juice to use. Halo raised the atomizer in the tank to make filling the Halo II that much easier. No need to worry about spilling any e-juice or worry about it leaking.
After the Halo is fully charged (the trigger button will turn red once it is fully charged) click the trigger five times to turn it on and then just start vaping. The Halo is a mouth-to-lung vaporizer, so it does not require a lot of effort to draw out the vapor. Halo is known for manufacturing their own e-liquids. They usually have great sales and enormous discounts when ordering a kit. One can choose between plenty of e-juices like Freedom Juice or Tribeca.
The atomizer can be swapped with different cartomizers. Halo obviously encourages this since they included the adapter cone to make the Halo Triton II more aesthetically pleasing and by adding a different set of threads.
Being a starter kit, this was something that Halo had to ensure. The packaging lays out everything (even though the battery and the tanks were not screwed together) and the user’s manual walks vapers through the basics of the device.
Who else does that? For the retail price, the users get two vaping options. If they are feeling generous, they could gift one to a friend or loved one. If they are not so inclined, they could keep one as a backup. When the main one runs out of juice, the second one just can be picked up and keep vaping away.
The Triton II, despite its versatility, is not compatible with the original Triton model, although it is compatible with the G6. The different cartomizer produces another kind of hit, but other than that there is not much difference.
The Triton looks sleek and elegant. It also has a rubberized, matte finish battery that adds to the aesthetic and makes for a non-slip grip. Besides the looks, the Triton is very efficient which makes for a longer lasting battery. The compromise to that is that nobody will be winning any cloud competitions. If blowing huge plumes is not a priority then the lack of cloud chasing capabilities is a moot point. The kit itself comes with the necessary gear to get started, which is not much since this is a very simple system. The battery is a respectable 650mAh, but there is the option to purchase other, bigger batteries separately (up to 1300mAh). This is a more than good enough battery to get started.
The tank is transparent and refillable. At 2.4mL it can provide an All Day Vape for most users, unless we are talking about a chain vaper. There is a choice of a free 10mL bottle of e-juice with nicotine strength ranging from 0mg to 24mg available. Lastly, there is a USB cable to recharge the battery and a user manual.
There is not a ton of cloud chasing to be had with this tank style vape pen. It is more about flavor than anything. Halo makes exceptional e-liquids made with high-quality ingredients, so the point is to taste them.
The other side of the vapor coin is that the compact size lends itself well to discreet stealth vaping, which a trail of thick clouds would ruin. Of course, the volume of vapor does depend on the type of juice being vaped, too. There is quite a strong throat hit without being too harsh. The vapor is very smooth, so even a high mg nicotine strength e-juice will not rub the throat raw.
Innokin T22 starter kit
The Innokin T22 is a compact and concealable competitor of the Triton II that comes at a slightly cheaper price. Unfortunately, though it comes in fewer colors and has a boxier, tackier looking design.
It comes with one 2000 mAh battery, but the Triton II comes with two separate batteries, so it depends what the consumer prefers.
The Bug Mini Vape Mod Kit
The Bug Mini Vape Mod Kit has a nearly identical aesthetic as the Halo Triton II vape. The difference is that this vape comes in cheeky colors like hot pink and aqua, instead of the sophisticated colors that the Triton II comes in.
Like the Innokin 22, it is also slightly cheaper than the Triton II. Unfortunately, it also only comes with one 1100mAh battery instead of two different ones.
The Halo Triton II is an e-liquid vape pen with not a lot of complexity to it, which is a good thing for a starter kit to be. But, Halo Cigs, also gives the option to play around with the device, as a way to introduce the user to the possibilities involved in vaping.
It practically comes already assembled, and there is not much vapers could do to it that will upset their vape. The MTL vape gives a user a smoother vape option.
