For the sake of transparency: Green Smoke kindly sent me Pro Kit plus some extra cartomizers and a designer battery. I didn't have to pay for anything. However, I promise to write about it as if I purchased every single item.
Pro Kit is sold in UK as it is described and seen in the picture. US variant also includes a carrying case and car charger.
It came in a nice, sturdy and sleek box with magnetic closure. Plus USB cigarette and two packs of cartomizers at the side.
Let's scroll down just a little and take a look inside the box of the Green Smoke Pro Kit. There are the two batteries, and underneath you'll see a wall charger and a USB charger.
In terms of working time – Green Smoke Pro Kit automatic batteries prove to be doing a good job. It's 4-5 hrs of rather intensive vaping on the short and 6-7 on the long battery. Of course, someone who isn't sitting at computer desk all day long might go with any of them for much longer.
As for the quality of material, I didn't perform any tests on purpose. They just fell off my desk couple of times and nothing happened.
LED light blinks to indicate they are out of power. While being charged, the same light is on all the time and goes off to indicate it's over.
See Green Smoke batteries for more detailed description.
We liked the overall battery design – it's more gender neutral. It's beautiful, but not girly. Men like it, too. As a matter of fact, my two GreenSmoke batteries have just disappeared in my hubby's pocket. (Green Smoke should have sent me the pink ones:)
The tip on these two is greenish and the light glows red but you also have the option of choosing green glowing version.
USB battery comes in handy when you work at your pc/laptop. Many will use it much. It's good that Green Smoke has it included in almost all their kits.
In the picture below you'll see best-use-before date clearly indicated on every cartomizer pack.
Cartomizers last for 6 hours on average. They say 360 puffs.
Puffing digression:Everybody will have a different result if we try counting. That's why I don't do it. Apart from being a daunting task, it's useless.
Flavors are the biggest Green Smoke advantage, both in intensity and taste. If you smoke light tobacco cigs you can safely go with 1.2%. Also, 1.8% is full flavor, unlike some other brands.
Now just a few recommendations:
If you are buying e-cigs for the first time, I strongly suggest Variety Pack of flavors. Trying it out is not only great fun but also enables you to make your own assessment. There are features directly dependant on your preference and your smoking or vaping habits, which are not easy to quantify.
Review digression: description provides much more valuable information than simply grading an e-cig using numbers. That's the best way to refer each one of you to what has the biggest chance of becoming your e-cigarette.
If you are new to all this e-cig experience, I suggest another pack to be some tobacco flavor. My advice would be Tobacco Absolute, cause it's more neutral tobacco flavor than the other two. That's why it could be the best one to start with.

There's been a lot of talk about Green Smoke's price. Many seem to complain how expensive their kits and cartomizers are. We are their customers and we don't complain. Good products cost more.
However, this price can be offset if you use pre-holiday discounts usually around 15%.
Of course that eGo style and other mid-size e-cigs are much cheaper. On the other hand, eGo is equivalent of roll your own. It has never occurred to anyone to compare the price of, say, Sobranie with roll-your owns and start grumbling what a rip off the former is.

*It depends on your vaping habits and, even more, on whether you're more addicted to nicotine or to the ritual of smoking. More about the whole thing here.
