V2 Cigs is the most well-known and one of the best electronic cigarette brands on the market today. I did my first V2 Cigs review back in 2011 and wasn’t blown away, but thought they had a good thing going. Around the beginning of 2012 or end of 2011 is when V2 Cigs changed their product line. Since then V2 Cigs has been my brand of choice. Important things to note about V2 Cigs is they are super affordable, high in quality, and just plain AWESOME! V2 Cigs offers 3 styles of batteries in both manual and automatic. Sizes include a shorty, standard, and long.

Puff capabilities range from 160 to 300 puffs depending on battery choice. Having used V2 batteries for over 2 years plus, I know first hand that they hold up over time and keep their charge. V2 Cigs now offers 12 flavors in 4 strengths.

All V2 filters will work on any KR808-d1 threaded battery. If you already own a KR808-d1 style battery you’re good to go. Cartridges last about 200 puffs and cost per cartridge when purchasing a 5-pack to as little as .50 per cartridge with a larger bulk purchase. Comparing a cartridge to a pack of cigarettes is about right. An average smoker maybe gets about 12 puffs off a tobacco cigarette. So that would be 240 puffs per pack, so it’s in the ball park for sure.

V2 Cigs also offers a variety of starter kits. My personal favorite is the V2 Cigs Ultimate Kit. For under 0 you get everything you going to need for a great electronic cigarette experience and some.

They also have a really good intro starter kit with the V2 Standard Kit and that cost under . All V2 starter kits are competitively priced but I feel the V2 Ultimate Kit is by far the best deal on V2Cigs website. On top of having some really good starter kit options V2 Cigs offers some useful accessories with their product line as well.

One of the coolest things they offer is the V2 universal adapter which is an adapter that allows users to convert their old batteries to V2 threading so V2 cartridges will work on them.

V2 Cigs has also recently launched their new EX series product line which is a higher end longer lasting line of electronic cigarette products that is completely compatible with all other V2 Cigs products.

The V2 Ex battery line includes five designs including carbon fiber, scarlet metallic, Royle, Bloom, and brushed steel. The biggest difference with this battery line is it includes a led battery life indicator on the tip and comes with a matching battery sleeve that will work on regular v2 cartridges and v2 ex line cartridges as well.

V2 Cigs Review Overview
V2 Cigs Cost / Value
When it comes to prices of cartridges and starter kits V2 Cigs is one of the most affordable brands of electronic cigarettes. The prices are more than fair considering the quality of their product and support.

V2 Cigs Vapor Production
With V2 Cigs there is Plenty of full thick vapor to go around. Vapor production will not disappoint.

V2 Cigs Flavor/Taste
V2 Cigs cartridges / e liquids offer really good flavor with my favorite being Vanilla.

V2 Cigs products can be styled to your liking and are not too big or bulky.

Customer Service
I have had nothing short of GREAT customer service with V2 Cigs. From phone to email support V2 Cigs has displayed a huge focus on customer service which is one of the biggest reasons they are considered the best electronic cigarette brand online.

V2 Cigs Review Pro’s
V2 Cigs provides the complete electronic cigarette smoking experiences. With them offering multiple styles of starter kit’s with a variety of options to customize. They also are affordable and not overpriced like other brands of e-cigarettes. Customer service is the biggest win for me. Nothing better than knowing a company stands behind their product and that you’re going to be taken care 100% of the time.

V2 Cigs Review Con’s
Some of the entry-level starter kits are not as competitively priced compared to other brands. I’m also not a big fan of their Personal Charging Cases (PCC). They are just too big and bulky for my liking. I prefer a more compact PCC.
