One of the pioneers in the electronic cigarette industry, Green Smoke continues to rank high in e-cig reviews despite the growing number of competing brands. The key to its success has always been its market-leading FlavorMax cartomizers which are known for their remarkable taste, incredible vapor production, and ease of use.
Green Smoke e-cigarettes look, feel and taste like traditional cigarettes. But because they run on batteries, there is no need to light up or dispose of cigarette butts. Delivering nicotine through an odorless vapor, Green Smoke lets you enjoy a similar experience without the effects and lingering odor of secondhand smoke.
There patented design takes the fuss out of using ecigs with multiple parts. All you have to do is screw in a cartridge to the battery and puff away. Each Green Smoke cartridge can produce the same number of puffs as 1.5 packs of regular cigarettes.

Complete Green Smoke E-cig Review
Back in the day electronic cigarettes were built with three components: a rechargeable battery, a heating element, and a disposable cartridge to hold the liquid nicotine. When Green Smoke introduced the 1-piece cartomizer design, which is a flavor cartridge with built-in atomizer, it set a new standard in e-cigarette construction. With the Green Smoke cartomizer, vapers no longer have to clean and replace the heating element. Every time they attach a new cartridge to the e-cig battery, they get a fresh atomizer.
The Green Smoke e-cigarette gives you that nicotine kick you crave without the lingering smoke that your family and friends hate. GS e-cigs do not leave your homes or cars smelling like an ashtray. And with nothing to light up, there is no risk of fire even if you fall asleep while smoking.
Each cartridge is comparable to up to 30 cigarettes. Its thick, smoke-like vapor and smooth, rich, and full-bodied flavor offer an enjoyable smoking experience, even when you’re in places where smoking is prohibited.
To use Green Smoke, simply attach a FlavorMax cartomizer to the battery and puff away. When the cartridge is used up, unscrew it and screw on a fresh one.
Packaging and Style
Green Smoke offers five types of starter kits. Designed for the casual smoker, the Express Kit is the cheapest way to get started with Green Smoke. It includes one USB cigarette, one rechargeable automatic battery, five cartomizers, one USB charger, and one wall adapter.
Green Smoke’s flagship product is the Pro Kit, which contains one USB cigarette, two batteries, 10 cartomizers, one USB charger, one wall adapter, and one car adapter. If you plan on getting two kits, you can order the Love Birds Kit which is equivalent to two Pro Kits offered at a special combo price.
The most expensive starter kit in the Green Smoke lineup is the Ultimate Kit, which includes everything in the Pro Kit plus a third battery, an extra USB charger, and a durable carrying case for your cartomizers and batteries.
If you want to try Green Smoke without purchasing an entire kit, you can pick up a 6-pack bundle of Green Smoke Vapors. Each of these disposable e-cigarettes is equivalent to 1.5 packs of traditional cigarettes. They are shipped to you fully charged, and are available in Absolute Tobacco and Menthol Ice flavors at 1.8% nicotine strength.
Green Smoke FlavorMax cartomizers are sold in bundles of 4, 8, 12, and 16. Each pack contains five cartomizers and is triple sealed to ensure freshness.
Green Smoke Flavor and Vapor
The new FlavorMax cartomizer can produce up to 30 cigarettes worth of smoke, or around 360 puffs. The actual number of puffs will depend on a number of factors, including inhaling length and depth.
Inside the Green Smoke cartomizer is a liquid solution made of USP-grade propylene glycol, USP-grade vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and full-bodied flavoring. Zero strength cartridges do not contain nicotine.
Green Smoke cartomizers are currently available in Absolute Tobacco, Tobacco Red Label, Tobacco Gold, Menthol Ice, Smooth Chocolate, Mocha Mist, and Vanilla Dreams flavors.
The vapor and taste of Green Smoke ecigs are very realistic. Absolute Tobacco offers the bold, sweet taste of natural tobacco. Red Label is similar to the flavor of cigarette tobacco, with a robust, woody flavor. Tobacco Gold is a rich blend of Burley, Oriental, and Virginia tobacco flavors and has a rich, sweet taste similar to a cigar. Green Smoke Menthol Ice has a very strong, refreshing, mint taste. The Chocolate and Mocha flavors are dead-on, just like a Hershey’s bar and mocha java.
One Green Smoke cartomizer usually lasts more than a day for the pack-a-day smoker.
Green Smoke Nicotine Levels
Green Smoke ecigs can be used with cartridges that contain five different nicotine levels
- Strong (2.4%)
- Full (1.8%)
- Light (1.2%)
- Ultra Light (.6%)
Battery Life and Charging
All Green Smoke batteries are automatic. The built-in sensor activates the cartomizer when you inhale, and turns itself off when not in use.
There are two ways to enjoy Green Smoke ecigs. The portable e-cig has a built-in lithium ion battery which you can recharge through a wall or car socket. The USB cigarette can be used while your lithium batteries are charging or when you’re sitting near your computer, near an electrical outlet, or inside your car.
The portable Green Smoke battery comes in two types: long (400 puffs on a single charge) and short (300 puffs per charge).
On average, the long battery takes 5 to 6 hours to recharge while the short battery takes 4 to 5 hours. To maximize battery life, unscrew the cartomizer from the e-cigarette battery when not in use.
Vapers love Green Smoke for its exceptional battery life. A single charge could last an entire 8-hour work day. If you’re a heavy smoker, it is highly recommended that you always carry a spare battery.
Standard Green Smoke batteries come in white with red or green glow tip options. If you want to add a little more style to your vaping experience, grab one of Green Smoke’s designer ecigs. Eight themes are currently available: Cooperstown, El Paso, New Orleans, Chicago, Charleston, Seattle, Manhattan, and Springfield.
Green Smoke Value
Green Smoke is a great money-saving alternative to tobacco cigarettes. Instead of paying $5 to $12 for a pack of smokes, your daily expenses will only be $3 if you are vaping on Green Smoke.
However, with other premium e-cig brands now being able to offer really low prices, Green Smoke has taken a hit with its expensive kits, cartridges and accessories. The cost of one cartridge refill is only $1.50 for V2 Cigs, $1.60 for SmokeTip, and $2 for Blu Cigs – clearly better choices if you are on a tight budget.
To offset its high retail price, Green Smoke offers plenty of promos all year round. Use a Green Smoke coupon code to enjoy huge discounts, or take advantage of store-wide sales during holidays. First time customers also get a $10 coupon plus free shipping if they subscribe to the email list.
Green Smoke Support
Green Smoke is one of the first electronic cigarette companies to offer a Monthly Refill program. If you place the same order of cartomizers each month, this program will take the hassle out of logging in manually. Once you’ve set up the number of cartomizer packs that you want, your credit card will automatically be charged each month and the cartomizers will be shipped to you.
Green Smoke offers a 30-day money back guarantee and supports most credit card payment options, including MasterCard, Visa, Discovery, and American Expresss
Green Smoke offers free shipping, but it has become a nightmare to many customers as orders take around 30 days to arrive.
