LED colors revisited
I'm posting this to see if anybody actually cares, so be sure to be vocal about NOT caring too :) This thread is an offshoot of my wishing there were many more color choices to enhance the Titan line. I may be pushing a chain up a hill anyway, because I recall threads about LED choices no longer being made available in dropdown boxes and Vapor4Life saying it would not be happening, as opposed to could not be made to work... and that color requests needed to be by phone... So I'm thinking they're not too excited about the whole subject. But I'd like to make my pitch anyway.
The Titans are so technically respected, unique, versatile and gorgeous, but they seem to be somewhat unsupported in terms of developing a total killer look. The colors are sophisticated. Even when you've got the whole setup nicely coordinated, you press the button to activate and you get --- primary colors!!! Yuch. Colors like you see on computers and office machinery and dollar store gadgets. It's like wearing a chiffon gown with boots!
For example, I have a red Titan with red LED -ugh -
and a red one with white - nice.
a sapphire with blue -- ugh --
a gray with red --- ugh
a lavender w/pink - nice
an olive with blue - ugh
a blue with red - better than it sounds
Seven of the eleven Titan colors come only with red, white or blue LED's. Four of them substitute a pink, purple or (bright) green.
I think LED light is sort of based upon red blue and green technology, but it seems to me many shades are possible with not much significant cost increase. Colors like apricot, coral, soft aqua, apple green, yellow, perhaps a dark red?, amythyst, etc. would be of great help, especially to the blatant stepchildren: sapphire, cigar, gray, and olive.
I've seen other web sites where e-cigs were being targeted to a mostly women's market, but none of their fare compares well with the Titans.
It seems like there's potentially a great market out here for an e-cig with a smashing look. I'd hate to see Vapor4Life miss the boat, when they've already paid for the ticket and have one foot on board...
Re: LED colors revisited
Thanks for sharing Nana! I got tired of LEDs a while back and I only get stealths now so I really have no opinion either way when it comes to them. But it's good to start a thread so people can discuss.

When I only had black diamond batts, I didn't like red LEDs because I didn't want it to look like a thingy, otherwise it wasn't so important. Now I have coloured batts and LED colour matters.
Because of the limited range of colours, I now prefer white LED with just about any battery. I do have some nice combos though, for eg with my lavender batts I now have white, purple & even a pink LED.
If I ordered another lime green batt, I'd hate to get either red or blue LEDs. Red can look okay on a red battery, or even the cigar, but that's about all.
Still, I am not in favour of introducing more colours - unless there was a drop-down box so we could specify our choice. Until that happy day, perhaps just make all LED colours an option for all battery colours?
And bring back the comments box on the site so we can ask for our preferred colours?
Great thread, Nana!
I'm disappointed there's no longer an option for the LED color. :( Yes, I care about such a little thing.
Here's my inventory:
Yellow with Red LED -- ICK
Platinum with Blue LED -- OK
Sapphire with White LED -- Nice
Blue with Red LED - ICK
Red with White LED - Nice
Gold with Red LED - ICK. This is an "at-home" only battery, it's so ugly. :scared:
2 Silver with Purple LED - My absolute FAVORITE!
I detest the red lights. They're too much like an analog which defeats the purpose of vaping, you know? I'm also not a fan of green; luckily, I don't have any with that color.
You know, for $25 each, I don't think it's unreasonable to be able to request a specific color. Is there anything we'd spend $25 on at a department store or specialty store and expect to get a random color combination? I don't think so.
I'd rather see them all come with white lights -- although the white is pretty bright -- vs. the possibility of getting one with red or green.
Thanks for letting me add my :twocents:
There never was an option to select LED colour AFAIK. There was the comments box though, where you could type in your preference. I would usually type in my 1st & 2nd preferences, along with maybe a 'definitely NOT' for a certain colour. It was never guaranteed you'd get your preference, but I usually did.

And of course there's no guarantee they're in stock now.
And :lol: I just received my latest Vapor4Life order, which included a yellow soft touch XL titan. It came with a RED LED http://i1184.photobucket.com/albums/...20etc/puke.gif
Can't see my using that battery much - yellow was always an out-there choice for me. White is better than red as a default LED colour IMHO.
I'm in the minority then.... Love red leds. Favorite batt of all time is a gold shorty king diamond with red led named Emperor. Right behind it is a black with red led kd shorty named Vader.....
You're also a guy Morandir SIR, :lol: most of the posts are Ladies! ;) giggle Heres Vader for ya (its from my fb page LOL
I must be misremembering then or confusing with another vendor... Sorry 'bout that.

My first experience vaping 2 yrs ago was with the original vapor kings & it seemed like I almost ALWAYS got GREEN LEDs...YUCK!!! I would've much rather had ANY other color over green! I think we had 1 blue, which I liked that one. I even would've been ok with red, because my batts were black, red (which was more like a rust color, I was disappointed by that) or silver, so kinda hard to mistake as an analogue.
Side Note: Did I really need another battery? I currently have four Vapor4Life's plus two DIY Boxmods. Of course, I do... :)
I just ordered a Original Vapor King XL Manual in Purple. After I placed the order, I called Customer Service to inquire about LED color. KUDO's to Customer Service for looking into the available LED's this afternoon. Vickie let me know that purple, pink, and white LED's were available for my battery. I chose white since I knew that the purple on another battery was rather faint. I don't have any experience with pink and figured plain white would be brighter.
I also have batteries with blue and green LED's and those shine brightly.
Plus I saved 40% on my order this afternoon, and purchased some additional juices for me and my SO.
