V2 Cigs – One of Our Highest Rated Electronic Cigarettes
It takes a lot of guts to call yourself the #1 e-cigarette in America, but V2Cigs has no problem doing just that. When I took a closer look at this clever advertising campaign I discovered that they are indeed ranked #1 by the Alexa online rating service, meaning they are the most popular on-line e-cigarette company on the continent with over a million customers. But do they have a great product?
We tested V2 Cigs and have to admit it’s one of the best electronic cigarettes you can buy; in fact, we were just as impressed by their factory safety tests and cartridge batch numbers which are listed right on the box.
Speaking of boxes…V2’s packaging is pretty slick. We know you’re not going to vape the box, but after seeing so many cheezy-looking e-cig kits, we were impressed by V2 Cig’s attractive presentation. They have a cool, huge logo on both their wall charger and USB charger so you know you’re charging your battery with the correct charger..not one that may have a different amperage level.
V2 Cigs batteries are part of the KR808 series. If you’re into e-cig hardware you know that particular series of batteries is very reliable and of high quality. It’s also the only battery that contains your choice of automatic or manual which means it can have a small activation button if you select the manual type.
As with most of the top e-cigarette companies, V2 Cigs offers three battery sizes ranging from regular cigarette size to an extra long (and long lasting) 110 mm. They offer four colors, white, black, blue and silver. Unlike some other e-cigarettes you do get a choice of either manual or automatic battery activation. There’s a lot of power in the long battery which means it doesn’t shut off in the middle of your drag, so the vapor really delivers.
Full Vapor, Wide, True to Name Flavor Selection
V2 Cigs is one of the most flexible e-cigarette companies when it comes to offering cartridges styles and flavors. They offer a pre-filled cartomizer-style filter (that includes the atomizer along with the e-liquid) as well as a refillable filter (called an Ex Blank) that you fill with your own e-juice.
Filter choice flexibility goes even further. We were amazed that their e-cigs can accommodate cartridges from other e-cig companies if you purchase one of their adapters. They also offer completely custom cartridges where you can design your own color, flavor and nicotine strength.
When testing out V2, we learned that all battery sizes (even the shorty) lasted longer than most other brands. If you don’t vape 24/7 you’ll get a good 6+ hours or more than 300 puffs out of the long battery.
Flavor Cartridges lasted about same as our other top rated brands (about 350 puffs). There are three tobacco flavors, (really excellent), three “mint-type” flavors, and four specialty flavors (cherry, chocolate, vanilla and coffee). All V2 liquids are made in the U.S. and are guaranteed for purity and quality.
A word about V2’s tobacco flavors,…although limited in selection, they are true to the name of the flavor. Mint tea is spot on like it says; so it cola and all the others. The draw on the filter is easy and smooth too.
Vapor production is great for this propylene glycol/vegetable glycol blend. If you’re hoping for a strong throat hit, order a higher nicotine level. They range from zero to 2.4% (24 mg.)
One thing about V2Cigs cartridges that puts them on top is the fact that you can clearly read the flavor and nicotine level. Most other brands have you squinting even with your glasses on!
Starter Kit Prices
V2 Cigs are priced fairly for the high-end e-cig market ranging from a mere $34.95 for the bare bones beginner’s kit to a whopping $169.95 (on sale) for the more-than-you-probably-need Ultimate Kit, although it’s a belter.
The Better Business Bureau says all complaints, (and there have been only 43 in the past 3 years have been resolved. Most have been about slow shipments. That’s an impressive record for the #1 electronic cigarette seller in America.
V2 is continually bringing out new and exciting flavors, batteries, cartridges and kits that rival all other e-cig companies. Check out their new EX Batteries and cartridges with new colors, new designs, and lots of power
