Today I’m looking at something a little bit different with the Horizontech Binaries SE6000 disposable vapes.
Please note: This product is not available in the UK as it doesn’t meet TPD regulations. So only available for readers outside TPD regulated countries.
Horizon (as they’re also known) are a leading vape manufacturer based in Shenzhen, china.
By combining a strong research & development team with quality assurance and leading market experts, they’ve been able to give us the likes of the hugely popular Falcon range of sub ohm tanks.
And they like to offer something different from the run of the mill, traditional looking device.
The Binaries SE6000 is one such example.
What Can We Expect From the Binaries SE6000 Disposable vapes?
Many more vapes than the average disposable, that’s for sure!
That’s because the Binaries SE6000 contains a whopping 12ml of E-liquid. With a salt nicotine strength of 50mg don’t expect to find these in the UK or EU zones as they’re not TPD compliant.
For the rest of you, expect these disposables to last for anything in the region of a whole week.
Design and Build Quality
AS I’ve already alluded to, the Binaries SE6000 does not resemble your average disposable vape.
And maybe it’s just me but doesn’t that look like a Polo Mint attached to the front?
It does have a child alluring quality, so that doesn’t quite sit right with me.
I understand Horizon have opted for a distinctive design for a reason (see also the Horizon TH6000 review) but don’t disposable vapes get bad enough media coverage as it is?
..I’ve started to rant. Stop it, Neil!
The device is made from a tough PCTG material and has a high gloss finish. It’s wide but relatively thin.
The rounded edges provide a degree of comfort when held and despite the juice volume, is both lightweight and pocket friendly.
The Polo mint is actually a rotary airflow dial. A RDL (Restrictive Direct Lung) vape can be achieved with airflow at its maximum.
By turning the dial left (or clockwise) the four pin holes can be reduced down to restrict airflow accordingly for a MTL (Mouth To Lung) vape.
We tell you all about MTL and RDL in our Guide To Vape Styles!
I must admit, the moulding on the dial works quite well for fine tuning adjustments even if it does protrude significantly from the main body.
Since the device is capable of lasting for anything up to 6000 puffs with the 12ml of Salt nicotine, some form of charging is required from the integrated 650mAh battery.
USB Type C is provided and the charging port is situated on the base of the disposable. So yeah, you’ll be able to stand it vertically while using but not when charging.
Gravity can be a bugger when it comes to a low E-liquid capacity and wicking material. It can mean that some of the wicking inside the coil can dry out on one side.
All I can suggest is that you stand the SE6000 for a period of a few minutes once charged before vaping again. This may be the difference between a quality flavour experience and a surprise dry hit!
The AI chip also protects the disposable against low voltage, short circuiting and over vaping (8 seconds max puff time).
The Binaries SE6000 is powered by a 1.0ohm mesh coil. How much power in terms of constant wattage or voltage, I’m unable to ascertain – but the wicking is made from Bamboo pulp.
Bamboo pulp increases absorbency ratio by 40% so I’m expecting decent, prolonged flavour production.
Since the device relies entirely on auto draw to function it relies on a coloured LED to inform of current battery status. But that’s not all.
Horizon have taken LED functionality to another level.
The disposable not only includes a single battery strength LED indicator but a remaining E-liquid indicator too!
That’s a world first as far as I’m concerned. I know of no other disposable apart from the Binaries to include such a feature.
It’s going to be interesting to see how that works and how long it takes me to hit the Red LED!
Not that I’m a chain vaper (clears throat).

Ok it’s time to check these out for flavour, vapour and battery performance. Just how long will it take me to vape 12ml of E-liquid? How many times can I recharge the device?
And.. How well does the E-liquid level LED function?
I haven’t been able to glean any flavour profile descriptions so I’m afraid you’re going to have to rely on my taste buds this time.
Please note: The score line represents my own personal opinion of the flavours. Not how well the device performs.
Blue Razz Marshmallow
This one is cool and refreshing.
Then I get the aftertaste once the exhale dies down. This is most definitely a vape of two halves and I’m not entirely sure I like it.
I get some quality sweetness on the inhale that extends through to the rest of the vape. It’s followed up by a chalky Raspberry that carries plenty of flavour.
The Raspberry includes the same bitter qualities found in mainstream disposables so no real surprises there but it’s still tasty.
It’s what happens much later that throws me a bit. That Marshmallow smashes through just when I think the flavour is passing.
It seems to start out quite creamy but then develops a sour, out of date milk taste.
That’s the lasting impression I’m left with and it’s not very appealing.
Had the Marshmallow fused better with the Raspberry I could have seen this one scoring much higher.
Creamy Vanilla Orange Ice
It works for me!
Think Orange Ice Lolly / Popsicle or Orange Ice cream and you’re getting the vape picture.
I get plenty of cooling on the inhale – to be honest, more than I think is necessary because it is another tonsil cutter.
But the Orange flavour is very tasty and mouth watering. There’s a nice bitter quality to the exhale and maybe that’s a reason why the Icy content feel so pronounced.
There is a Vanilla creaminess to the vape but not quite as broad as I was hoping for. It’s more of a subtle effect than anything.
As an Orange Ice Cream vape, overall I think it’s one of the better ones I’ve tried. It’s only really let down by too much ice in my opinion.
Nope! I’m not a fan of this one.
I’m afraid it turns my stomach. I was expecting a mix between Raspberry and Blackberry with all the sweetness it brings along.
Yes, there’s adequate sweetness but the fruit blend just doesn’t work for me.
It carries a repugnant taste from the start to finish. The after taste reminds me of something I’m not really allowed to write here. It’s that poor, in my opinion.
I’m almost reminded of a low quality Grape vape. If you’re familiar with my E-liquid reviews you’ll know how well they go down!
To amplify my woes, a frosty cold blast accompanies the inhale. Having said this, if you like Grape vapes with a much sweeter content give it a go, by all means.
Because Loganberry Ice is certainly not lacking in the flavour department.
Battery Performance and Number of Puffs
Patience is a virtue! I’m working my way through 12ml of E-liquid! As soon as I have more details I’ll update here. So please do pop back soon(ish)..
I’ve managed 7.5 hours from the factory charge. It took 2 hours to drop to mid strength (Blue LED) and a further 4 before switching to the Red LED.
When the LED turns Red you’ll get another 90 minutes before needing to recharge the battery.
It takes 50 minutes for the LED to change from a pulsing Red to Green when recharging (for some reason the Blue LED is not used to monitor charge status) and it takes a further 30 minutes to complete.
The device will simply switch off when the battery is topped up. It’s not possible to vape while it’s being charged.
UPDATE: In total I got 38.5 hours use from the device. I recharged the battery four times and each time it lasted for 11.5 hours.
It took 16 hours for the Green E-liquid Level LED to switch to Blue. Then a further 7.5 hours to turn from Blue to Red.
Don’t be fooled when the E-liquid level reads Red (low). I still managed another 15 hours use.
However, under my usual vaping habits and doing a little math I have to suggest that 4,000 puffs is nearer the mark.
Final Review Verdict
For me the flavours tested are hit and miss. The sweetness levels aren’t too bad and generally flavour properties are good. They’re very consistent.
I do sometimes wish the cooling properties of these disposables were toned down a little. Sometimes it’s so intense as to take away from the enjoyment of the vape.
Call me insane (You’re insane!) but I spent the majority of my time with airflow set wide open employing a RDL vape..
Let’s just say I’ve become acclimatised to 50mg salt nicotine.
So I can also say that vapour production is also quite dense and satisfying.
If you’re more inclined to MTL vape the option is there too. I would suggest turning the dial down to one airflow slot for this.
You could if you wish, close the dial completely for a tight MTL vape and you won’t be bothering all the anti vapers with your wispy thin cloud production.
The auto draw is super sensitive and the LED’s are bright enough to view in direct sunlight.
I may not be a fan of the design but when it comes to performance the Horizontech Binaries SE6000 delivers the goods.
Ultimately that’s what it’s all about.
