Green Smoke Electronic Cigarettes are one of the best known and longest standing brands on the market, especially in the United States. In 2008, Green Smoke broke onto the scene with their genius two piece design that changed the face of e-cig technology completely. With this easy model of electronic cigarettes, there is zero maintenance needed and the smoker can enjoy a huge amount of vapor from one tiny cartridge.

Before Green Smoke introduced the revolutionary two piece design, e-cigs were all 3 pieces and you had to maintain atomizers. The atomizer being included in each new cartridge is now standard practice and we have Green Smoke to really thank for that. You used to see people making videos about boiling atomizers to clean them or having other tips and tricks to get the best performance out of them. The problem with not changing the atomizer too was that if you didn’t meticulously clean them, your flavors were going to run over each other by having reside on the atomizer. So we can really thank Green Smoke for cartridges that taste as we expect too!

Green Smoke is also well known for their top notch customer service and their 30 day money back guarantee. To keep customers happy, they also offer a lifetime limited warranty on all of their products and they even provide free shipping on every order both ways. So that means if you have a problem and need to send something back, they cover the cost for you, literally no out of pocket cost for you. Obviously, Green Smoke is topping the charts in the eyes of many reviewers with all these perks and more.

Green Smoke used to offer a lot more options for kits but really it was more of the same things packaged different ways. So they simplified it down to 3 kit options sure to suit everyone. The options are the Pro Kit for $74.05, the Express Kit for $46.72, and the Essentials Kit for $18.49. You did read that right, you can get their top of the line kit for $74.05, which is a crazy good deal (before you even apply our starter kit coupon to save an addition 10%).

Our favorite Green Smoke product is the Pro Kit, which is valued at $142.44. This kit comes with three batteries, 10 cartridges, USB charger, car adapter, wall adapter, and a deluxe carrying case. For under $75, you get everything you could possibly need as an e-cig user plus enough cartridges to last as long as 15 packs of analog cigarettes. That’s a really amazing value.

As you read other reviews on your site, you’ll see that we recommend getting 2 batteries if you’re an every day smoker looking to switch to electronic cigarettes.  The Express Kit also meets that criteria and is a great deal for under $50 (valued at $90.62). This kit comes with 2 rechargeable batteries, 5 cartridges, a USB charger, a wall adapter, and a carrying case.

Often sites (including us in the past) have recommended trying a disposable e-cig if you aren’t sure about switching to get the feel for what vaping is all about. However, this always presented problems because the quality of disposables was never the same as the starter kits you would eventually go on to use and it turned away some consumers early. Now rather than recommend disposables, we recommend the Green Smoke Essentials Kit because it’s the same e-cig you’ll use, just with the bare essentials as the name indicates. It comes with 1 rechargeable battery, 2 cartridges, and a USB charger. So you won’t get the wall chargers or car chargers, but it will truly let you test this e-cig out for a very affordable price. Keep in mind that they have the 30 day money back guarantee protecting you too!

Green Smoke has revamped their whole product line, but one of the biggest differences you will see is in the prices. Their products are now better quality, but they are also more affordable so it’s a win-win situation for all of their fans. I recently tried the new Pro Kit and I was surprised to see that they had even changed their packaging. The box was about 40% bigger than their previous kit and the colors were brighter.

The kit includes a great little Green Smoke membership card that gives a quick overview of the difference between your e-cig and a regular cigarette. Carry this card in your pocket and if anyone questions you about using it nonsmoking areas, you can let them read this card to learn more about e-cigs. The card even includes contact information in case they want to call Green Smoke to verify the information or ask questions.

All of the products in the Pro Kit are really well made. The car charger is one of my favorite parts of the kit because it’s completely unique from chargers I’ve gotten from other brands. It actually has two USB ports so you can charge your e-cig and your phone at the same time while you’re driving.

In terms of performance, you really don’t find a better brand than Green Smoke. The new pro kit performed perfectly, just like I expected. Green Smoke is known for giving you thick clouds of vapor. In fact, we often compare other brands with Green Smoke to rate their vapor because they are so well known for being the top vapor producing e-cig. Green Smoke e-cigs have a really smooth draw, but they also have enough resistance to make you feel like you’re smoking. The throat hit will satisfy most smokers out there and make the switch even easier.

Green Smoke now offers FlavorMax cartomizers, which are responsible for their amazing vapor production. Each cartridge should last as long as 1.5 packs of cigarettes. The flavors are all pretty amazing and you can pick from Red Label Tobacco, Absolute Tobacco, Tobacco Gold, Menthol Ice, Mocha Mist, and Smooth Cream. They have 5 nicotine Strengths ranging from 0 to 2.4%. The FlavorMax cartridges got their name because they are designed to not only give the best vapor production but also deliver rich taste that mimics the flavors nearly perfectly. It truly is one of the most enjoyable vaping experiences we have had with 2 piece electronic cigarettes.

Now Green Smoke has added another feature that will really improve the experience for you, the auto-ship program. This gives you discounted rates on your cartridges and has them delivered to you automatically at your door without needing to remember. Other programs have abused auto-ships by being deceptive so we understand the hesitation from some, but the only want to sign up for this is to explicitly do so. It isn’t bundled into anything or a hidden “feature” as some brands did in the past. What’s better is that you can control the subscription anytime online, via the phone, via chat, or email. You can cancel or change the plan to adjust delivery dates and quantities along with receive email reminders so you can adjust them before anything ships. This is really the best up-front auto-ship program we’ve ever seen and feel 100% confident in recommending it to our readers. So if saving 10% every time and getting the lowest price available guaranteed appeals to you, sign up today!

The Green Smoke batteries are white and the cartridges are tan like the filter on a cigarette. The green tip lights up red or green depending on your preference when you take a drag. The assembled e-cigarette is just a little bit longer and thicker than a tobacco cigarette, but it’s not huge or clunky. It feels comfortable in my hand. If you want to customize your experience and personalize it a little bit, Green Smoke now has designer batteries. You can find these in the extras section on their website and they run $15.71 for each one, but if you buy 3 or more, the price drops to $13.88 each.   The designs are worth checking out and they offer a total of 10 special batteries for purchase in addition to the classic. The special designs are the Charleston, The Pink Battery, Manhattan, El Paso, Nashville, Cooperstown, Chicago, Seattle, New Orleans, and Springfield. You’re sure to find something that fits your personality. Make sure you check these out!

It was really a close decision on where to rank Green Smoke. Honestly, they almost stole the #1 slot from V2 Cigs after trying their revamped products. Our readers have kept Green Smoke in the top 2 since we opened the site though. So we don’t think you can go wrong with this brand.

We challenge anyone on the fence to try out Green Smoke using their 30 day money back guaranty and discover for yourself how great of an e-cig it is. Then we want to hear from you below with you own reviews and really get the discussion going. If we don’t have enough reviews for you, go to their site and click the reviews tab and you’ll see over 12,657 reviews on the products. You can also see that someone really purchased the product as they will have a “Verified Buyer” label next to their name. They publish all the reviews good or bad, but you’ll find an overwhelming amount of good reviews from their long time repeat customers especially!

So ultimately, Green Smoke is one of the best e-cigs out there, if not the very best. You get the thickest vapor, great flavors, and really affordable prices with their revamped starter kits. Check them out and you’ll quickly learn why Green Smoke is such an amazing brand!

Green Smoke makes one great e-cig. They don't try to make many models, they just make the best single one and constantly improve it. The cartridges produce the best vapor on the market.

He tried everything with little success. Then in 2008 he discovered e-cigarettes, started vaping and has never looked back.

    Didn’t meet my expectations, the short battery would struggled to make it through my work day (IMO NOT SUITABLE FOR A HEAVY USER AND THEY SHOULD LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT!). Plus I could not find a flavor that I could really enjoy.

    I ordered from my local South African site and it took nearly 2 weeks for my kit to arrive! After I emailed them they finally sent me a personal apology 2 days later, along with a gift bag. Still very unprofessional to me and will move to a different cig if it happens again.

    For me they are far too expensive. nice product but I can’t afford the carts so had to switch. My new carts are not as good but at least I know I can afford enough to keep me going through the month.
