V2 Cigs – One of Our Highest Rated Electronic Cigarettes
There was a time V2 claimed it was the #1 e-cigarette in America. Fierce competition within the vaping industry has set them back a notch, (with JUUL being the current best seller), but 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 beginner kits – the basic 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. These models have automatic activation meaning you don’t have to push any buttons to get your vapor. Just draw on the cartridge.
As with most of the top e-cigarette companies, V2 offers several styles in their beginner ecig starter kit lineup. Some have cartridges pre-filled with the e-liquid flavor of your choice, some are refillable.
There are several battery sizes too, ranging from the 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.
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 Several 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 cartridge. The e-liquid is already in the cartridge. When it’s empty, you throw it away and replace it with a new cartridge.
These Pre-Filled Flavor Cartridges last about same as our other top rated brands of cigalikes – (about 300 puffs). There are three tobacco flavors, (really excellent), three “mint-type” flavors, and six other flavors. All V2 liquids are made in the U.S. and are guaranteed for purity and quality.
The Ex Standard Starter Kit has a refillable cartridge you can fill with any 50/50 PG/VG e-liquid blend.
The Ex Standard E-Liquid Starter Kit has a refillable mini tank you can fill with any 50/50 PG/VG e-liquid blend.
All the above mentioned kits come in colors – white, black, steel and rose gold.
Vapor production is great for all cartridge styles. If you’re hoping for a strong throat hit, order a higher nicotine level. They range from zero to 2.4% (24 mg.)
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 Standard beginner’s kit to $59.95 for the Standard E-Liquid Kit Ex Series. Of course prices can change.
V2 has been around for a long time. It was one of the first big vapor companies and they continually bring out new and exciting vape products.
The company is proud of the fact they design all of their vapor products in the U.S., and that their e-liquids are third-party tested for purity and safe ingredients.
