V2 Cigs Review – V2 Cigs is a brand of electronic cigarettes that has taken the e cig world by storm ever since it launched. V2 has established themselves, and has truly gained immense popularity because of its incredible customer service, top notch products, powerful batteries, and great line of flavors.

Revolutionary Two Piece Design

V2-logoE cigs that are made of two pieces, like the V2 Cigs, combine the atomizer (the piece that heats the e liquid) and the flavor cartridge into one piece. This means that when you have used up all of the liquid in the cartridge, you simply throw out the cartridge with the atomizer inside. When you do this, you are getting rid of a dirty, old atomizer which helps to cut down on the risk of the atomizer getting clogged and provides a fresh vaporizing experience every single time. The cartridges will generally give the user the same amount of puffs as a pack of conventional cigarettes, depending on the smoking habits of the user. V2 estimates that you get up to 250 puffs per cartomizer. During our tests that was the upper end, but we did get at least 200 puffs out of each cartomizer, which is a very good number.

Many vapors choose to purchase prefilled cartridges to avoid messy spills. They prefer to just change them, and continue to enjoy. However, their opinion of blank cartridges may change after seeing V2′s EX Blanks. These are specially made clearomizers that fit right onto you V2 battery, and allow you to load your own e liquid. The EX Blanks come in 3-packs for just $14.95, which is very reasonable. Blank cartridges deliver a stronger hit and better taste. They are basically smaller versions of the tanks that you see on larger personal vaporizers. V2 has offered their entry level line of electronic cigarettes for some time, and has improved upon their design and functionality year after year.

Many Flavor Choices

V2 Cigs has one of the widest ranges of flavors for sale. This gives every user some great options for the flavors that they can try so that they can find the best one for their individual tastes. You can also select the strength of the nicotine in the liquid inside of the cartridge, giving you a truly personalized vaporizing experience. You can select from: 0%, 0.6%, 1.2%, 1.8% and 2.4% nicotine. As for flavors V2 offers more than many other brands of smaller electronic cigarettes. You can choose from:

  • V2 Red Tobacco
  • Sahara Tobacco
  • Congress Tobacco
  • Menthol
  • Peppermint
  • Green Tea Menthol
  • Grape
  • Cherry
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Vanilla
  • V2 Cola

Switching from conventional cigarettes to V2 Cigs is an easy process because the experience of inhaling vapors from a personal electronic cigarette is just as enjoyable as using a conventional tobacco cigarette.  Users will not have the yellowing of their teeth, bad breath and staining of their fingers that comes along with smoking cigarettes.

New and Improved V2 Cigs Battery

V2 e cigs batteries in black, blue, stainless steel and whiteV2 Cigs began using a brand new and improved battery several years back, and have updated it regularly since then. This battery has truly revolutionized the vaporizing experience because it is much more powerful, with 4.2 volts of power providing you with great quality vapor. This increases the amount of vapor that the user gets with each drag, for a stronger and more intense hit of vapor. This battery has been tested extensively and has been proven effective since its release. Our tests utilized the standard size battery that is included with the starter kits and is capable of holding a 250 mAh charge. V2 does offer two other battery options: the shorty that holds a 190 mAh charge and the long which holds a 360 mA charge. The standard battery held a charge all day even when used heavily, but does need to be recharged nightly if you are a heavy user.

V2 Cigs, unlike many other brands of electronic cigarettes, offers users the option to have a manual battery or an automatic battery. The difference between the two batteries is that a manual battery must be switched on or off, whereas an automatic battery is activated by dragging on the tip of the device. The batteries are consistent in size so that they both can fit in the same portable charging case for on the go recharging. The advantage of the automatic battery is that it lasts a little longer than the manual batteries, this is an improvement in technology as this was not the case just a couple of years ago. Improving upon the automatic battery, which is more convenient to use is just one way that we can tell that V2 pays attention to customers and to research and development.

In most of our tests we found that V2 Cigs topped other brands and proved to be among the most durable and innovative e cigs on the market. The portable charging cases that they offer are an excellent addition and the vast accessory selection they have for sale is second to none. The most basic electronic cigarettes that V2 Cigs has for sale do offer you a level of aesthetic customization as you can select from: white, black, stainless steel, blue, or pink batteries depending upon your tastes.

V2 Starter Kits

V2 Cigs sells six different kits for your personal electronic cigarette needs. These kits are fully stocked with the supplies that are necessary for vaporizing with a V2 Cigs electronic cigarette. The starter kits that they sell include:

  • The V2 Beginner Kit

The Beginner Kit is a no-frills buy that lets you get started right away. You get a disposable e cig, one battery, a five pack of cartomizers and a charger. The Beginner Kit is an inexpensive way to give V2 a shot.

  • The V2 Standard Kit

The V2 Standard Kit gives users everything that they need for everyday usage of their electronic cigarette. The kit includes two batteries and is more suitable for those who will use their device more often. The kit is very affordable and also comes with a couple of different charging options and 10 cartridges that are filled with flavor.

  • The V2 Standard Plus Kit

The Standard Plus Kit gives you even more! You get 2 batteries, 10 e liquid filled cartomizers, a wall adapter, a smart charger, a portable charging case (these come in handy) and a user’s manual.

  • The V2 Couples Kit

This kit is an excellent option if you are a couple that has chosen to switch to electronic cigarettes together, or if you want to buy one kit for yourself and another as a gift. You will get two of everything that comes in the standard kit, but at a more affordable price than if you were to purchase two of these at one time. You get to save a lot of money on double the electronic cigarette usage capabilities. This is also a great option if you have a friend that wants to switch as well, as you save money but still get two of everything needed.

  • The V2 Ultimate Kit

If you are fully on-board then the Ultimate Kit is for you. It sets you up for months of uninterrupted vaping (if you’re in to that kind of thing) with: 3 batteries, 25 cartomizers, a wall adapter, a smart charger, a charging case, a 2 amp car adapter, a metal carrying case, a lanyard, a user’s manual and they even throw in a V2 power cig. This collection represents one of the more thorough starter kits available today.

Vape 4 Free Program

The Vape 4 Free Program that V2 Cigs has in place is a rewards program for loyal customers that refer friends or family members, sign up for V2’s email list, provide a product review, or make purchases from V2’s website. When you refer someone that you know to try their modern electronic cigarettes, you receive exclusive discounts on your future purchases. You will save money on the electronic cigarettes that you were going to buy anyway! This loyalty program is just one of the many reasons why customers keep coming back to V2 Cigs and why vapers have consistently ranked the company at the top. The price of V2 electronic cigarettes is also very affordable as compared to other brands of e cigs, with starter kit prices right beginning at $34.95. Other brands’ starter kits can be considerably more expensive.

Universal Adapter

The V2 Universal Adapter is the latest addition to their line of products and is completely different than any other item offered by any other electronic cigarette brand. The adapter has really put V2 Cigs in a class all their own. The devices (they have 2 so be sure to verify which one works with your current battery) is especially useful for those people who already use another brand of electronic cigarette. With the adapter, which is screwed onto the battery of another electronic cigarette brand, the V2 cartridge can be attached so that users can try it out. They can see just what everyone has been raving about in regards to the intense flavor and strong vapors of V2 Cigs. We tested the adapter with a number of different batteries and found that they all worked perfectly. The adapters are a great way for those who are not sure that they want to switch brands to test out V2 Cigs at an affordable price. Although some brands batteries are not as powerful as V2 Cigs so the experience may not be exactly the same as if you were using a V2 Cigs battery. The adapters only cost a few dollars and will prove to testers why so many customers have fallen for V2 Cigs. V2 Cigs are currently compatible with some other brands of electronic cigarettes without the adapter as well, so that you can test their cartridges without even having to use the adapter. The following brands are all compatible currently with the V2 Cigs cartridges: Vapor4life, Premium E Cigs, and le Cig as well as most every non-branded KR808D cartridges. V2 cigs cartridges are compatible with these competitor brands when the V2 Universal Adapter is added on: Red Dragon, Vapures, GreenSmoke, Bloog, e-cigs E-9, Esmoke Sensation, South Beach Smoke and Smoke 51 DUO.

    Oops. I just realized that something I wrote above is unclear. I have supplemented my V2 cig by continuing to smoke analog cigs; I smoke many fewer analogs when I have the V2 cig in hand. Another thing I forgot to mention is that my contacts with Customer Service (in the person of one Miguel) have been excellent. Hey V2cigs! Once you all get your shipping/fulfillment acts together, I think you and I are going to have a wonderful relationship! P.S. Any plans for THC cartomizers? Chuckle.

    TO KATE:
    I think the people at V2 just says anything to pacify people. I spoke with someone over a week ago about a defective battery that is less than a month old and was told that I would be sent a new one, after not hearing anything for a week, I spoke with Stephanie and was told that the short manual battery was out of stock but the long ones were AWESOME! She said was training a new person in shipping the next day and she promised that she would ship me 2 long batteries at that time. Well today I spoke with Mike and was told they would ship in 24 to 48 hours, shipping has been very bad, yadda, yadda, yadda….80 percent of our orders go out in 24 to 48 hours he said, to which I replied, 100 percent of mine have not! I think I am done with V2. I dont like to spend money and be mislead. ITS JUST NOT RIGHT!!! As for JEFF, to bad you still have to smoke reg cigs, Im sorry, but I can say that I have not had a real cig since April so I guess some good has come out of this for me.

  3. Comment by admin — November 17, 2010 @ 2:51 pm

    Hi Eric,

    Sorry to hear the shipping issues are still occurring for you. CigaretteReviews.org has been contacting V2 with all of the comments about shipping and unfortunately we have been getting the same answers as everyone else. I can say that BluCigs went through this same issue earlier this year and from what I understand now they rarely ever run out of stock. I’m betting once V2 gets caught up they will learn from these issues and make sure it doesn’t happen again. I am really glad to hear you’ve been smoke free from traditional cigarettes since April! I hope you continue to stay smoke free and find the right e cig for you. I can say that V2 does have a great product and hopefully they will get you your order soon.

    Thanks so much for continuing to post about your experience with V2 Cigs!

    I have been wanting to quit traditional smoking for awhile now with no success. My daughter purchased an ecig from the local mall..Nuvo cig to be exact. Although i wasn’t thrilled with the size of the ecig, as it is quite fat and long, i was impressed with the value and vapor. Starter packs are just 24.99 and come in a pack that plugs right into an outlet. Because these cigs are made in china, i decided to search online for something made in the usa seeing I would be inhaling this substance into my lungs. I came across blue cigs and figured this was a good choice. After receiving them, I am sending them back. This product did not live up to its expectations. Even though u get alot of bang for your buck, they are very inconsistent, and i believe the batteries are defective as i fully charged my pack last night and this morning its telling me to recharge. I don’t know what the issue is but i’m not gonna have them resend as i don’t want to wait another 10 days only to have to send them back again. Its to bad because the taste of the low reg tobacco is pretty good, but with them dying constantly and no vapor..what good r they?

    I am now ordering v2cigs. I am going with the starter pack. I haven’t come across any terrible reviews as far as the actual product so i’m hoping this will be the last stop for me as far as giving up traditional cigs. Review of the product will follow upon its arrival. Hopefully i receive it in a timely manner.

    Hi Linda,

    Thank you for your comment! We hope our reviews on CigaretteReviews.org have helped you decide on V2 Cigs. There really isn’t one brand that is right for every one. Blu Cigs are very popular and V2 Cigs are up and coming. V2 is having issues with delivery currently so I’m willing to bet you may see a delay in your shipment. Based off the comments we’ve been seeing and from what we’ve been told from V2 Cigs directly they are working hard to increase their production but their will be some delays until they get caught up. We look forward to hearing your review once you do receive your starter kit from V2 Cigs!

    Thanks again for your comment!

    I would love to give a positive response about V2, but after paying for express shipping which was suppose to be 1-2 days, I am now going on day 4 with a status of still “awaiting fulfillment”. Spoke to customer service, and they have no idea when my order will be filled as they are “under staffed”. I am suppose to wait until next week and call back if I still have not received a confirmation email. Not a happy customer at this point.

  7. Comment by sharon — November 21, 2010 @ 1:14 am

    Here’s a good story….I got an e-mail from them two days ago telling me about the big Sale they are having T-giving week-end. 10% off kits and 20% off cartridges. How in the hell can you have a 20% off sale when you don’t have anything to sell?????????

  8. Comment by Eric — November 21, 2010 @ 9:26 pm

    To Admin: Thanks for your comments but i am not going to order from V2 anymore until they can list on the website when something is out of stock. I simply refuse to go back to reg cigs and i will buy nicotine patches before I let that happen

  9. Comment by valerie — November 21, 2010 @ 10:35 pm

    Oh they have everything in stock, according to the email I just received, they just don’t have the staff to fill the order. Six days and still “awaiting fulfillment” on my order. Even if I do get my order, and then like the product, by the time I reorder cartridges and get those, I will be back to smoking regular cigarettes! I did research for weeks and really thought I had picked a good company. Really disappointed.

  10. Comment by Eric — November 23, 2010 @ 12:23 am

    LOL, last week I got an email saying that my replacement battery and charger was shipped out on 11/16 ( I never ordered a charger and needless to say I have not received it}. A few days later I get another email saying that one replacement battery was shipped on the 19th. I got it today. And today I get an email saying that my 2 replacement batteries shipped out today. This V2 situation is laughable but hardly funny. I wont be using them again and its sad because I really do like the product but they are NOT the only ham sandwich in hungry town.

  11. Comment by Miranda — November 26, 2010 @ 6:13 pm

    I ordered my v2cig starter kit on November 9th. I have talked to customer service via live chat twice now and each time they promised it would be shipping in the next few days. Obviously it didn’t. My order is still “awaiting fulfillment”. This ecig gets rave reviews but it is very disheartening not to get the product. I have had to buy two cartons of regular cigs since ordering. Please hurry V2! I wanted to try this product and if I liked it I was going to get it for a couple smokers I know for Christmas. This I now know won’t happen. Even if I get my order this coming week and reorder for them immediately, they will never get it out by Christmas.

  12. Comment by Eric — December 2, 2010 @ 5:33 am

    I would ask if they have what i want in stock before I place an order and if it does not ship in 48 hours I would cancel and demand my money back

  13. Comment by Sandra — December 6, 2010 @ 11:47 am

    I ordered from V2Cig on November 15th and received the product on December 4th. When someone is getting ready to quit smoking that window of opportunity is open and a company needs to fulfill quickly or lose. What irked me more than the delay in fulfillment of my order was that they charged my credit card within hours of receiving said order…that’s bad business. When I called them on it (I was on hold for 11 minutes) saying they had charged me 2 weeks prior they said it was for my own safety, so that they did not store my data. Sorry, but in this electronic age that just doesn’t fly. What all this tells me is that the company is not financially sound enough to finance their own purchasing and relies on customers to finance it for them, what is known as ‘kiting’ in the legal lexicon. I also noted that right here on this board V2cig said on November 11th they had received a “massive shipment” which apparently wasn’t massive enough since I ordered 4 days later and still had to wait 2.5 weeks to get my kit (albeit with missing, back ordered components).

    So yeah, I’m going try it for the first time on the way home from work today, and I still hope it works for me, but thus far I am unimpressed. This would have to be a pretty amazing product to put up with this level of unprofessionalism. I hope this company gets its legs under it soon.

  14. Comment by David — December 6, 2010 @ 7:40 pm

    I have ordered from these guy’s 20 days ago and have just now received notice that my order is ready to ship. Its not shipped it ready to ship… This is unacceptable shipping practice. I am very dissappionted and will NOT do business here (V2cigs.com) again. I won’t be stupid enough to buy from them again…buyer beware

  15. Comment by Sharon — December 7, 2010 @ 10:34 am

    Do yourself a favor Sandra…pack that crap up and send it back as fast as you can!
    V2 STILL can’t tell the truth….decided to give them ANOTHER shot on Nov.26. Placed an order for an Ultimate Kit ONLY AFTER chatting LIVE with Stephanie and was assured by her that everything I wanted was IN STOCK.
    Dec.2 I get an e-mail saying that Auto Adapter, Power Cig and Portable Charging Case are all on BACKORDER!!!!!!!
    Yesterday I received HALF of the Ultimate Kit and my 25 cartomizers….the V2 does produce good vapor, BUT the Cowboy and Coffee are the WORST tasting things I have tried! The labeled Coffee does not have one iota of coffee flavor….it tastes like watered down chocolate…both flavors disgusting.
    It’s over for me with V2….packing my HALF Ultimate kit and the nasty cartos up and sending it all back…

  16. Comment by Eric — December 9, 2010 @ 8:56 pm

    EDITED REPOST Without explicit language! I dont know why I should bother since I am NOT going to order from these people again but I think everyone should know who and what they are dealing with. I agree with Sandra, they are Kiting!! They dont listen, they send false emails and say whatever it takes to get your money. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY AGAIN! LIKE DAVID SAYS ( BUYER BEWARE)

    We have yet to receive the 2 short batteries back from you and the reason we sent the charger kit is because you have had so many issues with batteries that sometimes (more often than not) it is actually the charger that is the problem. We are not going to randomly charge you so there is no need to be hostile. We will send out this black long manual again as you had mentioned that it had been lost in the mail.

    Okay, so I’ve been giving the product a trial run and have found that the first couple of tokes are great, and then vapor production weakens. Both the short manual and the long automatic batteries when fully charged last only about 2 cigarettes worth of smoking. I am a relatively light smoker, usually about 6 or 7 a day, so this should not be asking too much of the product, but I haven’t gotten to work and back using both batteries (40 minutes each way). The USB ecig works great and for me is the only satisfactory product in the starter kit. The cartridges taste fine, but I do find that my tongue gets dry and I get a mildly unpleasant aftertaste, but this may turn out to be the case with any ecig, I have no other experience to say that this aspect is unique to V2. I haven’t yet decided what to do, maybe keep trying through this weekend, give it a fair shake and then make a decision, but I am not exactly overwhelmed.

    To Sandra:

    They all say their cartidges last as long as 1-2 packs of cigs but its just not true. If you decide to keep your kit I suggest you get your cartridges from Smoketip. They are all about the same but smoketip is cheaper than V2 and you get 10 as opposed to 5. Also you should get liquid from Halo and refill them to last longer. I wanted to order the pass-thru manual battery from V2 but i will not order ANYTHING from them again. Good luck.

    Well, the good news is I’ve quit smoking analogs…can’t stand the taste anymore and have fully adapted to vaping. Received and email last night that V2 has finally completed my order – 2 months after I paid for it. Too late for V2, I’m afraid – I have already switched to Vapor4Life. I now own a V4L pass-through and manual ecig and have tried about 20 of their flavors as they sent me a dozen free samples with my battery order. I also ordered a couple of juices from them which I have yet to try, but V4L is for sure my go-to company from here on out. I actually feel badly for the customer service people at V2, they must feel pretty beaten up at the end of the day, but I am definitely done with V2.

    Good for you…V2 is nothing but hype. As you well know, their customewr service is the worst….and guess what
    ? Their product is lousy too!!! After waiting and waiting, when I finally did get a partial order, I kept it for 3 days. No vapor, and the lousiest tasting cartridges I have tried.

    I placed my order for my V2 cig on January 27 and I received it in the mail yesterday. And this was just with regular shipping, so mine came very fast and everything I ordered was there. So it looks like their service is back on track! I have only tried it twice thus far and I’ve noticed that I definitely get much better vapor from the manual battery, as opposed to the automatic one, so I think I’ll be ordering a second manual battery. The only issue I am having is that I noticed that the charger was not lighting up green, even after multiple hours of charging. I emailed customer service and got an immediate response that this is a firmware issue and that I might have to reset the battery, but that my device is not defective. I won’t know that for sure until I see how long the battery lasts between charges, but I’m fine with the answer. I had a friend who recently ordered an e-cig from another brand and I like what I’ve gotten from V2 a lot better. I am interested in trying more flavors as well. I am hoping this can kick my smoking habit!!

    I take back my earlier statement. On the date I wrote that I placed an order for the portable charging case that I still not have received. I received an e-mail that the order was ready for shipment, and two days later that it was back to “awaiting fulfillment”, when I asked them about it they said they were waiting a shipment that would arrive at the end of February. Still have not heard anything, and have gotten much better service from other brands.

    As a 20 year smoker, I have tried everything to quit tobacco and this is the only thing that works! I think it’s because it replaces nicotine, along with the actual habit – Nothing else even comes close! The inhale/exhale sensation is exactly the same and I now have no need smoke tobacco anymore! Every smoker should try this: Use discount code 83754 to receive 15% off a Start Kit – Great deal, great product!

  24. Comment by Chris — June 28, 2011 @ 8:37 pm

    The V2 works great. I was skeptical, but I haven’t had a “real” cigarette in 3 days. And when I do “smoke”, it feels like the real thing. The V2 seems to be a quality piece, the flavors are great, and they’re adding new flavors all the time.

    If you try this kit, using coupon code 166237 will get you a 15% discount.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for passing on the great coupon code! I’m sure others will take advantage of it.

    am enjoying the v2 system very much, great product.

    i miscalculated when i ordered my next supply of cartridges, and when i would run out of what i already had, being the 4th of july holiday extended things.

    would like to know if v2cigs expands their availability to retail tobacco shops for just such an emergency. its not a problem to have to pay a little more for a few cartridges, if it keeps from buying tobacco because i made a timing mistake.

    oh by the way, the omaha metro area.

    thanks, keep up the good work!

    I have been purchasing from v2 cigs for about 6 months now. The product is great! The amount of vapor produced is incredible. The flavors are strong. The battery life will last all day or more depending on how much you use it (even with the shorty cig). There are only two issues that I have experienced with v2 cigs and their product. The first is more of an annoyance than a real problem. Every so often you will receive a defective cartridge in your order, where there will be little to no vapor and it is very harsh. I have also noticed that certain flavors produce a lot less vapor than others i.e. cherry or chocolate. My main grievance is the shipping time. I have placed 13 orders over the past 6 months and had the same problem with each. The website states “All “In-Stock” orders are shipped the following business day if received by 6pm on the prior business day.” However this is never the case. When I first started purchasing from the company, orders would take almost a week just to ship. After contacting customer service I was informed that they just didn’t have the production ability (people or space) to keep up with the high demand (understandably so). Now that they have a new website, new building, and more people it has gotten better, but still, they have never shipped next business day. I generally contact customer service after each order I place and I am given the same excuse each time. Due to the high volume of orders, they are backed up on shipping and my purchase will likely ship in a few days. I placed an order on Thursday morning 2 weeks ago and it shipped on Monday. After placing another order this Thursday morning (10:31 a.m. est to be exact) I was told by customer service that it will ship next week sometime. I love their product and that is why I keep coming back, but if I find another company with a similar product that can provide more reliable shipping, I will likely switch.

    Thanks for your great review of V2 cigs! When V2 was just getting started we heard there shipping time was pretty slow and the products were taking too long. Over time we’ve been speaking with V2 and they have become a lot better with sending the shipments in a timely manner. We definitely recommend contacting them after an order is placed to make sure it’s in stock and get the correct time for shipping. This is great advice!

    Thanks again for your input. Please feel free to keep us updated on your experience with V2

    V2 has HORRIBLE shipping times and DO NOT HAVE their product in stock. I placed an order last night (Fri) and contacted customer service this morning (Sat) to confirm my order…at which point I was told they are out of chargers and cannot ship until they come in…MAYBE early this week or MAYBE not. So I told them to cancel my order, and they told me it would take 3-7 business days to get my money back. So basically I’m now forced to wait regardless of whether I use their product or not…and I don’t have the money to order another product right now. So I decided I have no other choice at this point but to sit here and wait for the product to arrive. They did offer me a discount on my order and shipping, but I’m still VERY unhappy about the fact that they are selling a product that they DO NOT have in stock. It’s a shady way to do business…IN MY OPINION…I should have gone with BLU which was my original choice…the only reason I didn’t is because I read bad things about their batteries, but I have a friend who uses BLU and has nothing but great things to say about them. I hope this post helps steer people away from V2, because their product fulfillment SUCKS.

    ok, so after reading so many horrible reviews about v2 from so many different websites – I’m starting to get a little nervous…lol I placed an order for the starter kit w/both v2 Red &vanilla flavors(6mg) on Aug 6th &also payed for faster shipping..& I called customer service to make sure my order was correct & they said yes & it’s getting shipped to me. But I received email today saying because of holidays they are behind & that my order is awaiting shipment, but no confirmation about how long :(this is the 1st time I’ve ever ordered ANYTHING ONLINE.. It was suppose to be 1 of my b-day gifts from my boyfriend. I had the choice of choosing any company I wanted.& it sounds like I might’ve just made a huge mistake. Almost every review I have just spent the last hour reading are all negative. esp about shipping & not receiving correct orders:(but I will let you guys know what happens 🙂

  32. Comment by Maultsby — September 12, 2011 @ 3:35 pm

    I love my v2 cig and all the flavors I have tried….Vanilla, Menthol and Peppermint…Although we have witnessed delays in our orders they have made up for that with great customer service!!! Product as popular as this I understand the delays,and will continue to use this company….

    Hello Alex,

    Thanks for your email! We’ve spoke with V2 regarding your order and they let us know that your product was shipped two days late due to Fedex express not shipping on weekends.

Please let us know if you’ve received your V2 Cigs yet and how you like them. Our readers value your opinion on everything from the sales process to the use of the product.

    I have used V2 for over a month now. This is a great product. I have not had any issues with customer service. It usually take about 3 days from the time I order to receive refills. I have replaced my Marlboro Lights with the Red 12mg and the taste and amount of nicotine is perfect. The battery life is better than expected. I ordered both the automatic and the manual battery. If I did it again I would have ordered both manual batteries. It gives you a bigger draw of the vapor. I would recommend this product to anyone. Good Luck if you are using to quit smoking.

  35. Comment by Gary — November 7, 2011 @ 9:18 am

    Received my V2cig traveler kit last week with Red, Vanilla and Coffee carts, all full strength. I’ve tested all the parts now and everything works.

    I was a Marlboro Light or Pall Mall Blue smoker and I find the Red flavor a little harsh, I wonder if going down to 12mg would would soften the flavor or I should try another brand. The Coffee and Vanilla are fine at 18mg, but aren’t what I’d want for my everyday smoke. It would be nice if I could do sampler packs to try a cartridge of everything.

    Over the years I’ve tried DS801s, 501s, easy anywhere, etc. They were either too weak or too messy, and I stuck with analogs. The V2 with the PCC seems to be doing the trick. I was a 3 pack 60 cigs) a day smoker for 32 years, now I’m down to about 2 analog cigs a day and hope to quit completely soon. Thanks V2.

  36. Comment by Ray — March 31, 2012 @ 4:27 pm

    I have never tried another brand of e cigs so I cannot compare it to anything else. Being a 30 year smoker I thought this would never work boy was I wrong this product works just like they said it would. Customer service is great. I had trouble with one of the batteries and they replaced it within 3 days. I would recommend to order the Ultimate Kit it has everything you will need, The down side is I don’t think you get a whole pack of cigs out of a cartridge probably 3/4 of a pack. That’s all I have in the negative side of this product I would highly recommend this to anyone. One more thing you will never smell like an ashtray again. It’s been 2 weeks with no desire for a regular cig

    I have and have tried Blu, No 7′s, Metro (Nicotek), Cig2o and others (All in either disposable or rechargeable) But I was never quite as happy until I found the V2′s.

    The batteries did not last long on the others, some that had a vanilla flavour also had a hazlenut or even a coffee taste to them (I just want plain sweet vanilla),

    Many only had red or menthol, some did not have vanilla in different grades of nicotine (I am trying to gradually step down after spinal surgery a couple weeks ago)

    Everything I have found in the V2′s especially the vanilla flavour (no other flavours added in like some) in different nicotine grades, along with different accessories I want to try is what sold me and will keep me coming back.

    I purchased a metal case (which I want to keep) But I really keep eyeing a softcase (would work better for my purse) And another standard battery so I do not have to wait when one battery wears out. I am considering the V2 Express Kit but I only wish it came with vanilla.

    So many choices, so many great ways. I will definitely spread the word and hope one day to purchase some more accessories when I refill on more cartridges.

    A very happy, satisfied, and loving v2 customer (Who has tried them almost all)

  39. Comment by What Is Vaping — January 22, 2013 @ 5:33 pm

    I have been using V2 for a year and a half. Having gone from a 3 pack per day smoker, I haven’t had even one puff off of an analog since I started vaping. I love it!! Never thought I could kick that nasty habit.

    No problems with V2 at all. Customer service is always friendly and helpful. Product is good and they stand behind their lifetime warranty on the batteries. I have worn out a few of them during this time.

    Thanks for the review and keep up the good work!

    Buyer beware. I just purchased V2 Red 18 cartridges and juice, batch # VSAV, and it they contained the wrong flavor. V2 customer service refused to exchange any packages that were opened. I explained to them that I had to open the package to find out they made a manufacturing error. They still refused and said there was no warranty on juice but would make a one time exception for the unopened packs. When I continued to request a refund due to thier error they refused to answer anymore of my e-mails. The test reports they have on-line for this batch states everything was fine. I lost my trust in V2 and have gone to another company.
