So far I've liked the Vanilla, Bad Apple, Expresso, Atlantic Cut, Kick and Zero K Flings. I didn't much care for the Menthol, Iced Berry, Bora Bora or Moscow Mule.
Cig2.0 Raspberry Mint actually comes with a shamrock green light on the end. Not a fave. Few people look good with a green light reflecting on their faces. Blue lights aren't much better, but at least I'm partial to the color blue.
My lights range from red to white to green.
Fortunately, even a very poor LED wouldn't draw more than 20 ma (milliamps, or 0.02 amps) to generate decent light, and good ones easily generate pretty bright light (for an indicator) at 8 ma (0.008 amps). Very large and high-power LEDs may draw more, but we wouldn't use those on our vapes. You can light a room with some of them!
Since even I, a low-power vaper, draw 1.8 A from the battery, that extra 0.02 isn't significant (and since my device uses an SMD LED, I doubt it draws the full 20 ma).
In disposables, battery life is limited by the size of the battery and the quality. In a disposable, they wouldn't want to use a real high quality one as the expense would be rather high. And the size is always pretty small due to the form factor they're trying to reproduce.

Agree that disposables didn't cut the mustard when I wanted to quit. But two disposable fruit flavors I liked inspired me to quit instantly, because I bought an eGo starter kit. I kept smoking tobacco/cloves until I got the eGo. I still pick up a couple of Glo Blueberry disposables every month or so, just as backup. I think they are specially-made for a local upscale chain of gas station-groceries, though. Only see them at Parker's. Parker's only has stores in GA and SC, near the coast.
Cig-a-likes are meant to mimic analog cigarettes as much as possible. I always figured the light on the end was training wheels.Personally I think the light is stupid and makes me feel like I'm playing with a child's toy. OK I can see the reason for a red one that actually looks like the end of a cig but a big white or blue bulb at the end of your cig?? WHY???
