The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Green Smoke Starter Kit

One question a lot of our customers ask is “which starter kit should I choose?” It’s a big decision, particularly if you’ve never smoked electronic cigarettes before.

How many batteries do I need?

Which flavor cartomizer should I get?

What’s the deal with the accessories?

I’m going to run you through a few things that will help you determine which kit you need and then the breakdown for each kit so that you can find the perfect one for you.

How Much Do You Smoke?

As a general rule, the thing that will decide which kit is right for you is how many batteries they have in them, and how much you smoke each day.

That being said, it you’re a light smoker, say less than 7 cigarettes a day, then our Express Kit is probably the best option for you.

It only has 1 battery, but that should be more than enough to get you through your day. At the end of each day, simply put the battery in the charger and you’ll wake up to a freshly charged battery the following morning.

If you smoke more than 7 cigarettes a day, the best bet will probably be the Pro Kit. The Pro Kit has 2 batteries, so you’ll definitely have enough power to get through the day. The Pro Kit has everything you need to fully enjoy Green Smoke electronic cigarettes.

If you smoke more than a pack a day (20+ cigarettes) then the best option for you is the Ultimate Kit. This kit comes with 3 batteries and 2 chargers, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to never be without a powered battery when you need one.

What’s The Difference Between the Long and Short Battery?

Our long battery, when fully charged lasts approximately 400 puffs worth (approx. 30 cigarettes worth). Our short battery is approximately 250 puffs (20 cigarettes worth). But keep in mind that these are for a new, fully optimized battery. All lithium ion batteries lose some of their charge over time, so keep that in mind when choosing your battery.

The main advantage of the long battery is that it has the power to get you through pretty much your entire day on one charge. The plus side of the short battery is that it’s shorter, and gives you more of that classic cigarette feeling.

Both feature our industry-leading, smooth airflow technology, and both give a great smoking experience.

What’s the USB Cigarette?

The USB cigarette is included in all of Green Smoke’s kits. This device is not a battery. Instead you plug the wire into the USB port of your computer to draw power.

It’s a great thing to have if your batteries are drained and need to be charged. Simply plug it into the computer to keep on vaping.

What’s Your Routine?

When and where you smoke is also a consideration when choosing an electronic cigarette kit. If you travel a lot by public transportation than you want to make sure you have plenty of extra charged batteries.

If you’re in the car a lot, then you can get one of our kits that have a car adapter.

If you spend a lot of time indoors, but not near a computer, then you can use our wall adapter.

If you spend most of the day by your computer then you can simply use the USB charger.

Regardless of your routine, you need to ensure that you’re going to be able to keep your e-cig batteries charged.

The best option is probably our Pro Kit. You’ll get all of the chargers you need at a significantly reduced price than if bought separately. Even if you think you’ll always charge your battery in your computer, you never know if you’ll need the other options. The Pro Kit makes the choice easy because if its great price.

An added benefit to the Pro Kit’s adapters over the Express Kit’s is that in addition to charging your batteries, they will also power your USB cigarette.


Green Smoke electronic cigarettes provide one of the highest quality smoking experiences in the industry. Our FlavorMax™ Cartomizers provide an unmatched, rich flavor, and our long lasting batteries have few, if any, rivals.

That being said, it’s understandable that some people might find the Ultimate Kit slightly out of their price range.

But the batteries and cartomizers in the Express Kit are the same as in all of the other kits, and they give just as good of a smoking experience.

So don’t hesitate to pick it up. You’ll still be able to enjoy the same rich flavor, you’ll just have to be more aware of how much your battery is charged.

As a backup, all of Green Smoke’s starter kits come with a USB cigarette, in case you do find yourself with a drained battery. Even with the Express kit, you can still smoke, as long as you’re near your computer to power it.

The Differences Between the Kits

So now that we know what to look out for, let’s look at the main differences between the 3 main kits:

Express Kit: The Express kit is the perfect kit if you just want to try Green Smoke e-cigs, or e-cigs in general. It comes with 1 battery and 5 FlavorMax™ Cartomizer (equals 7.5 packs of cigarettes) and a black wall adapter for charging the battery.

The one thing to keep in mind with the Express Kit is that it only has 1 battery. As we stated above, that can make it difficult to ensure that you have enough power throughout your day. You might get caught away from your computer with a dead battery.

But like all Green Smoke starter kits, it comes with a USB cigarette. So as long as you are near a power source you can still enjoy your cigarette, even if your battery needs to be charged.

Pro Kit: The Pro Kit is our flagship kit and highly recommended for most smokers. It contains 2 batteries, so that when you’re smoking one, you can charge the other one, ensuring you always have a charged battery.

The Pro Kit also has a car adapter and wall adapter, so you can charge you batteries in your car, or at work. And extra benefit that these adapters have that the Express Kit doesn’t, is that they will also power the USB cigarette. So even if you do find yourself with 2 dead batteries, you can power the USB cigarette from your car’s power port or a power outlet while your other batteries are charging.

Ultimate Kit: This kit is our most robust kit and gives you the biggest bang for your buck. This kit features 3 batteries, 2 USB charger a wall adapter and a car adapter.


Regardless of which kit you choose, you’ll still get the same product – a cigarette that provides the rich, smooth flavor you crave.

Head to Green Smoke right now and enjoy the smooth, full flavored satisfaction that can only be had from a Green Smoke electronic cigarette.
