If you have been shopping for an electronic cigarette, then more than likely you have heard the name V2 Cigs. Since their start up in 2012 they have plowed ahead of the e cig competition, quickly becoming the leading electronic cig retailer online. Are they that good though? Are they worth your money? We tested them out to find out how they line up against the other e cig companies out there.
For our review we decided to go with the “V2 Standard Plus Kit”. It is v2 cigs’ mid range starter kit and is priced at $69.95.
2 V2 Classic Batteries
10 V2 Classic Flavor Cartridges
1 Portable Charging Case
1 Wall Adapter
1 Smart Charger
1 V2 User’s Manual
One thing I really like about V2 cigs is how their starter kits are so customizable now. You pick what size battery you want, what color battery you want, what flavor and nicotine strength of cartridges you want, and what design of charging case you want. This earned big points with me as I like to have things just the way that I like them! Anyways, on to the battery.
I went with the standard size battery in the black design. It is sleek and looks great, it is about the size of a normal cigarette. They have other colors for you to choose from too though. You can get a white one that will look like an analog cigarette, black, pink, stainless steel, or blue. It is just all about your personal preference!
You get to pick the length and size of the battery as well. I went with the standard model, and it is the perfect
size for me. It is around the length of a typical cigarette. If you choose a longer one then the battery will last longer, but since you get the charging case along with a wall charger and a usb charger I figured the standard length would last me long enough and it does!
When I first got my v2 starter kit I really wanted to see how long the battery would last as that is one of the most important features for me. There is nothing worse than being in need of a smoke and having your battery die on you. First thing I did was make sure that there was a full charge on the battery and went about my day. I am a pretty heavy smoker and used it more than I usually would because I wanted to test it out well. The battery lasted a day and a half before dying. I give the battery an A+ and was really impressed with how long it lasted with the amount I used it.
Charging it. First off, the express USB charger is great. It charged my ecig in 1 hour and 17 minutes exactly. From fully drained to charged. That is great, and the wall charger was a bit slower but not significantly! It is so handy to have a USB charger, it can plug into most phone chargers, computers etc. That means you can easily charge it in your car from the cigarette lighter, which is very convenient.
My favorite part though is the charging carry case. You get to choose from 3 different styles: Graphite, Stainless Steel, or White. I went with the graphite case to fit my black batteries. It fits one standard battery and 2 flavor cartridges
at a time so you dont run out of battery or e juice ever. The case itself charges your battery as it holds it and will charge it 4 whole times before you need to recharge the case. Since I have had this the case has saved my life more than once when I slacked on keeping my e cig charged. It is pretty awesome to say the least.
The Vapor Flavors
To keep on with the customization of these starter kits you get two choices of cartridges each containing 5 cartridges and you also choose the nicotine strength to fit how you smoke and whether you are trying to ween yourself off of nicotine or not. I went with the “Red” flavor for my first choice and tried one of their specialty flavors, their “vanilla” for the second.
The red flavor is a mimic of American tobacco and I absolutely loved it. Having smoked for a long time, I do enjoy the taste of a real cigarette and the red flavor gets it really close. Overall I highly recommend if you like the flavor of cigarettes.
The vanilla was good, but not my favorite flavor I have tried. It was a little much and over poweringly vanilla. It could just be my personal taste, but I probably wouldn’t get a vanilla pack again, which is why they lost a star on flavors.
V2 Cigs offers variety packs for their flavors and I would suggest trying one of those out if you aren’t quite sure which flavor you like. It is only $18.95 and you get 12 cartridges, one of each of their flavors. The cartridges are very moderately priced as well, you can buy a 20 pack for $35.82, that comes out to $1.79 per cartridge. With each cartridge being good for around 200 puffs, that makes them far, far cheaper than a regular cigarette and great price-wise with their competition.
Since I got my V2 Cig it has become one of my most used vape. The battery is great and long lasting, easy to charge on the go, the flavors are good, ordering is very easy and if you need help the customer service is quick to respond and help. There is a good reason that V2 Cigs are featured as my ‘Editors Choice’ on here.
I highly recommend V2 to anyone looking to get started with e cigs or someone looking for a new cig-alike. The customizable starter kits make it so you really get the e cig that is perfect for your needs. Click the link below to visit v2 cigs now to get yours!
