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.

V2 has released a new type of cartridge for their V2 batteries. The V2 EX Blanks for Wax is designed to be used with your favorite waxes, oils, gels or similar concentrates, allowing you to take your V2 experience to a whole new level. This cartridge is compatible with V2’s Classic and EX batteries, so there’s no need to purchase any additional equipment to be able to use it. They come in packs of 3 for $19.95 on their website.

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’ve been using V2 Cigs for several years now and they have great products and excellent customer service. I recently upgraded to the EX series batteries and cartridges and I definitely love them even better. The flavors are good and I like the different nicotine levels. I started at 24mg and now I’m down to 18 so I think vaping is helping me make some progress.

    I tried a couple others – this had best flavor IMHO.

    But the BEST thing is their customer service.

    I have had problems with a couple of the batteries – I call and explain the problem, and what I have done to try to fix it. NO questions asked the ship me brad new ones – they pay for the shipping, as well as a preaddressed return with postage – not a penny cost to me.

    Every single person I have talked too has been VERY friendly, acted happy to help, and was sympathetic.

    They truly go above and beyond!

    I bought the starter kit after reading a lot of ecig reviews online. The V2 came up on top on most of the websites. The initial cost seemed a little high at first, but having used it for about 5 months, I can see that in the long run it’s a very inexpensive way to go.
    A few notes about “switching” to ecigs in general. I don’t know that
    I actually had planned on quitting, just wanted something to tide me over
    in all those places where smoking is banned. These have been great for that! I keep one tucked under my keyboard at work or in my pocket. I believe that you could really quit tobacco altogether if you never smoked a real cigarette after starting these. Once you smoke just 1 tobacco cigarette, you probably will continue as the taste/satisfaction level is
    just not the same with an ecig. Also, if you “smoke” both, you will probably find yourself coughing more, probably because of the moisture from the ecigs.
    All in all, the V2 is an excellent value whether you plan on switching over or quitting totally.

    I’ve been threatening to quit smoking for some time but just haven’t really gotten around to it. One day I got a text from my daughter telling me about the deal for an e-cig starter kit on an online site that offers deals on an assortment of products and the V2 Starter Kit was the item. For a $24.95 price tag, (substantial savings from the original price of $93.95!), I thought what could I lose and placed my order. Website stated could take up to 10 business days and I was surprised to get it in 3 days!
    When I got the Kit, it was ready to go, all I had to do was attach the lil cartridge and get started. I was definitely surprised on how it tasted and how thick & full the vapors were! Just placed an order for refills, sticking with the Red V2 flavor, switching it from the Medium to the Full flavor. Hoping it doesn’t take too long to get the refills, since I’m completely out of the cartridges and am smoking conventional cigarettes right now. I’ve been alternating between the regular cigs & e-cigs at this time, would rather not be smoking real cigs at work, since I work in a Medical Clinic. I’m an extremely happy customer right now and am glad that this product works for me and I will continue to use it until I eventually quit smoking for good! Thanks daughter, for pointing this out to me and thanks V2, for providing a decent product with decent flavor!

    I just got my new V2 in the mail a few days ago, and so far I’m really loving it. The vapor is thick and it gives you that good throat hit that I just really missed from my old cigarettes. I got a sampler pack to try all the flavors and I decided I’m pretty much a plain jane kind of girl. I like the peppermint… wasn’t a fan of the other flavors as much. The cherry was okay, but vapor production wasn’t as great with that cartridge. I already ordered a bunch of peppermint refills! I highly recommend V2 to anyone looking for a good e-cig to start out with.
