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’ve tested many V2 vape pens and vaporizers (and the company has scores of devices for all levels of vaping, but this review focuses on their original, beginner kits – the Standard Kit and the Ex Series.
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. 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.
They offer four colors for the Standard kit – black, white, blue and steel, and four for the Ex Blank Kit – white, black, steel and rose gold.
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.
Full Vapor With 2 Cartridge Styles
V2 Cigs is one of the most flexible e-cigarette companies when it comes to offering cartridges styles and flavors. The Standard kit has a pre-filled cartomizer-style filter (that includes the atomizer along with the e-liquid) and the Standard E-Liquid Kit/Ex Series has a refillable filter (called an Ex Blank). You can fill an Ex Blank cartridge with any 50/50 PF/VG e-liquid blend.
The pre-filled Flavor Cartridges lasted about same as our other top rated brands (about 350 puffs). There are three tobacco flavors, (really excellent) and three “mint-type” flavors. All V2 liquids are made in the U.S. and are guaranteed for purity and quality.
Vapor production is great for both types of cartridges. 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 pre-filled 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!
V2 Safety Promise
We were just as impressed by V2 factory safety tests and cartridge batch numbers which are listed right on the box.
Starter Kit Prices
V2 Cigs are priced fairly for the high-end e-cig market ranging from a mere $39.95 for the bare bones beginner’s kit to $72.95 for the Standard E-Liquid Kit – Ex Series.
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 all V2’s ecigs and vaporizers.
