I have been a pack-a-day smoker for 18+ years, and have tried countless methods to quit, unsuccessfully... until I tried V2. A close friend of mine had one at the bar, and I was skeptical, but I took a puff. Surprisingly, it felt like t…

V2 Cigs is our top rated e-cig for a good reason. Our entire team tested the V2 Cigs products rigorously and the whole team was impressed with the starter kits, cartridges, and even the accessories.

V2 has six main starter kits with the Beginners Kit being the entry level kit for $34.95. Our readers are able to save 15% with V2 Cigs through an exclusive coupon code offered only at ECR.net which brings the price down to $29.71, Click to View . The Ultimate Kit is the top of the line starter kit from V2 and sells for $149.95 and includes everything you could want or need with your electronic cigarette. Again, our readers can save 15% on this kit as well.

The V2 Cigs slogan is “All the feeling, all the flavor, all the satisfaction”. This brand definitely lives up to its word. Let’s cover just a few of their great products and I’ll explain what we love about each of them.

V2 Ultimate Starter Kit

This kit is the perfect choice if you want to get everything you need in one order at a really low price. Even if you are a really heavy smoker, this kit is going to keep you going for a while with no need to reorder cartridges. The V2 Ultimate Starter Kit includes 3 V2 batteries, 25 V2 flavor cartridges, a wall adapter, a smart charger, a 2 amp car adapter, a portable charging case, one power-cig, a metal carrying case, a lanyard, and a detailed instruction manual.

They offer really nice presentation on the packaging with a large white box with all the components neatly organized and ready to use. V2 Cigs sends the kit fully ready to use. The battery is partially charged so you can go ahead and take that first puff right away instead of waiting while your batteries charge for a while.

There are several things we love about this kit. V2 Cigs provides a lot of cartridges with the ultimate kit, which is a huge perk. You instantly start saving money with this kit because even after the price of the kit, you are basically going to come out the same of even ahead compared to what you would have spent on 25 packs of cigarettes. The personal charging case is another nice addition to this kit that will come in handy for any vaper.

The cartridges come packaged nicely and individually sealed in a 5-pack aluminum wrapper. The cartridges are also color coded to help you keep your flavors separate. The current V2 flavors include: V2 Red (American Tobacco), Congress (Refined Tobacco), Sahara (Turkish Tobacco), V2 Menthol (Refreshing Mint), Peppermint (Sweet Mint), Mint Tea, Coffee, Vanilla, Chocolate and Cherry. They also run special flavors from time to time. Our favorites are definitely the V2 Red and Congress, but if you like something sweet, you will love their Peppermint. It’s the best mint flavor of any brand we’ve tried.

When using V2 Cigs, the first thing you notice is the tip lights up white. This is completely different from other brands and it’s an attractive touch. The vapor production from V2 Cigs is amazing. It’s really close to Green Smoke. It has an excellent throat hit for a more realistic experience. It is hands down the best all around e-cig we have tried so far.

Zig Zag Flavor Cartridges

V2’s newest product line is the highly popular Zig Zag cartridges. I recently tried the Zig Zag cartridges in the variety pack. It included Colombian Coffee, Mango, Vanilla, Caribbean, and Clove. I tried the vanilla flavor first and it had an excellent throat hit and the most powerful vapor I’ve ever experienced from a vanilla flavor blend by far. The clove flavor is remarkable because it is almost identical to the taste of a clove cigarette. It has the same smoky flavor and long lasting aftertaste.

I really think this adds a lot to V2 Cigs and will draw in a whole new customer base. The mango flavor is spot on. I have never tasted such a close match on a fruit flavor… it was seriously like biting into a mango! The throat hit was less severe on the mango, but it was still really satisfying. The Caribbean flavor had a nice pineapple taste that was very tropical and refreshing. Lastly, the Colombian flavor was the strongest coffee flavor I’ve ever tried. It was really a perfect match and would be a big hit if you like coffee!

I think the Zig Zag cartridges draw easier than the ordinary V2 cartridges and they definitely produce more vapor.

V2 Power Cig

V2 also offers a unique Power Cig. This e-cig throws out a huge amount of vapor! It isn’t very portable, but it is a great choice if you are sitting near a computer vaping because you can just plug it into a USB port on your computer. It stays very consistent because you don’t have to deal with waning battery life. If you order the Ultimate Kit that we’ve talked about above, you get the Power Cig included for free!

V2 EX Blanks

V2 is now offering a new option that allows you to use V2 batteries with your own favorite e-liquids. The V2 EX Blanks attach to your regular V2 batteries, but they turn your regular e-cig into a more customized product. Even better, you tend to get more vapor out these than the typical V2 cartridges. They come in a three-pack for around ten bucks, which is such a steal! Along with the EX blanks, now you can buy all your favorite V2 flavors in an e-liquid form. The result is a better taste with a cleaner vaping experience.

White Cloud Cartridges were my favorite cartridges when I first switched to electronic cigarettes because of the Smooth Draw Technology built in combined with the 24MG nicotine level created a strong and consistent throat hit for those days when you really want a cigarette. While the V2 Cigs cartridges don’t possess the Smooth Draw Technology, they are maintenance free, provide a large amount of vapor, and the throat hit is solid which has resulted in me not having any days where I crave a cigarette anymore. You can read more about the cartridges through our V2 Cigs Cartridges Review.

In many cases you get what you pay for, however that is not the case with V2 Cigs. James, Jane, and I have all put their products to the test to ensure they are of a high caliber quality and all of us were impressed with the way the V2 Cigs products held up. Even though they have really reasonable prices, they are top of the line products. So if you are looking for a high quality e-cigarette that can be customized to your liking and requires zero maintenance, go with V2 Cigs.

    i just got my travelers kit in the mail today. i ordered this kit because it came with the portable charging case, unfortunately i did read the small print and ordered the XL batteries, but the kit only comes with the regular battery charging case so i am somewhat disappointed with this!!! customer service said i could return the kit and reorder another one but that it could take too much time for me since i am leaving on vacation and didn’t want to wait that long.

    i love the taste and the amount of vapor i get with this product, i was using the e-liquid with another brand but was having trouble refilling them and keeping their batteries charged so i went for it and bought this!!

    The flavors with the V2 are horrid for me. I smoke Misty Lights 120s, and had previously tried an NJOY ecig, which tasted just like my regular cigs. So I was so excited when ordering the V2 kit and starting on the road to recovery from regular cigs. I have tried both the Blue and the Red, they remind me more of those little cigar things you can buy. Not good flavors.

    I’ve read all the hype about V2 online but honestly I just wasn’t all that impressed. It seemed like a regular ecig to me… nothing really stood out. I don’t think that it’s necessarily inferior to other ecig products, but I just don’t get what the hype is about. Seems like a regular ecig to me.

    Great product but the taste is way off. Might work for a marb smoker but my favs are lucky strike and american spirit. This’ll get rid of the nicotine craving but not quite the tabbacco craving

    Ordered the starter kit and the cartridges were back ordered then came in the wrong strength lites at 6mg instead of fulls at 18mg. Ordered the samples pack – wasn’t sent until inquired about it. Ordered additional cartridges and gee just back ordered prior to our placing the order, which we were not notifies about until again we inquired why our order was still in “fulfillment” for several days after our order. My husband went back to cigarettes while waiting for the correct item to arrive.

    Good experience with V2 up to now. Especially like the taste of the V2 Red and Sahara. However, after 3 months, one of the batteries literally burnt my hand. The battery, not the cartridge although you could hear the cartridge sizzling until disconnected. It simply would not turn off after taking a puff. A three month old battery mind you. V2 did replace the battery but now expects me to bear the return shipping. A petty issue considering that postage was only 80 cents or so. No Company can have perfect quality control, I get that. However, they could have sent me a pre-paid envelope or agreed to refund shipping if they determined the battery was in fact defective. I am careful not to overcharge my batteries.

    This is poor customer service in my mind.
