Here's the review of all South Beach Smoke batteries. There's one more South Beach Smoke review on this site - it features their De Luxe kit (two batteries, one pack of cartomizers and all other necessary accessories to start your vaping journey).

These are 4.2 volt litium-ion batteries, with output voltage ranging from 3.3 - 4.2V which depends on battery charge.
There's a safety feature that will temporarily turn off the atomizer if a drag reaches 10 seconds. This prevents the overexposure to nicotine. When activated, this feature will trigger the LED light to flash 3 times and e-cig will stop working temporarily.
A led indicator at the tip also signals the operational mode. It glows orange for the duration of your draw and also for the duration of charging. It blinks when batteries need charging.
Standard -2.5 inches, 300 – 400 puffs
Long (high-capacity) 3.5 inches, 500 -600 puffs
Manual - 3 inches - number of puffs greatly varies here. It largely depends on how long your draws are.
Charging time is considerably
less than time of use - roughly 2 hrs for the standard and 3 for high-capacity
battery. Manual battery is a champion here. It takes only 1 hour to charge.
Automatic batteries were subject to rather intensive vaping and they lasted for 3.5 hours - standard and 5.5 hours- extended. Now, for some of you this may stretch to even one whole day without charging. Just keep in mind that this may vary to a great extent.
(For more explanation read my article Cartomizer Capacity).
For Manual battery I myself have results that vary from 2.5 to 4 hours. This battery is my favorite - not all e-cig retailers have it included in their offer. You may find it a great addition to your cig-alikes. Not only because its charging time is exceptionally low compared to automatic cigs - it also enables longer vapes.
New vapers might not find it specially attractive. But if you're switching from eGo type cigs to cig-alikes this is an interesting alterntive.
All South Beach Smoke batteries come with a crystal tip you see in the picture above. It adds to this e-cig looks.
All in all I like the new South Beach Smoke batteries. Thely look nice, are highly responsive and enable great vapes for a cig-alike. There's a tiny sound while you vape which I don't find of any disturbance.
