V2 Cigs – A Review of their most popular starter kit
V2 Cigs have certainly made an impact in the world of electronic cigarettes since their launch 5 years ago.
The brand has quickly become one of the most popular e cigarettes in the USA with a lot of good reviews flying about over there as well as positive reviews in Europe and the UK.
I had to see for myself whether V2 Cigs lives up to the hype so I decided to buy a kit to see what was going on. Lets have a look.
In The Box
The presentation box is similar to many other brands with its magnetic flap lid.
Never the less it was still a quality box and the overall branding on all packaging looked professional.
In the box for the Standard Kit you will find:
- 2 X Batteries (One Manual & One Automatic)
- 10 X Cartomizers
- USB & Wall Adapter

V2 Cigs Performance
This is where it starts getting interesting with V2 Cigs, their battery options along with the ability to customize them really give them something different from the other brands I have reviewed.
As an example, when you get to the checkout stage you are presented with the choice of either a manual or automatic battery as well as being able to choose a preferred color.
They also stock 3 different sizes/capacities of battery as well. All sounds complicated but its not once you are at the checkout!
I myself ordered the V2 Standard Starter Kit and chose one black manual and one white/ one steel automatic battery. I also received a free disposable as they had a promotion on at the time.
For those that don’t know the difference between manual and automatic batteries, the manual battery has a button on the side that needs pressing to ‘fire up’ the battery, this in turn begins to heat up the e-liquid, all you have to do then is take a drag then release the button.
The automatic has no button on the side, the battery is activated by a sensor when you take a drag.
All quite simple, I actually like the manual battery as i tend to get a slightly better vapor volume first time but if you are starting out I would suggest buying one of each.
Both batteries performed well though so no complaints there.
When it comes to size of the batteries, the ones I bought (79mm) are slightly longer than both E-Lites and the Green Smoke short battery.
This wasn’t a problem for me though and if you wanted something smaller they do offer a 67mm battery.
The appearance of the batteries are quite plain, they have gone for the cleaner look rather than trying to replicate the exact look of a cigarette with faux rings. This is no big thing though, they still have a nice quality feel to them with good branding.
V2 also offer a PCC (portable charging case), this is available in the Standard Plus, Travel and Ultimate starter kits.
These are highly recommended as they will charge your electronic cigarette battery on the go without the need for a power source. It is essentially a portable battery.
The PCC can also be purchased separately but it is on the expensive side depending on the size you go for. Jacvapor sell a similar PCC .
Overall – Both battery styles are very responsive with a good quality finish. The only real downside is that the replacement batteries are edging towards the pricey side.
Vapor / Flavor
When ordering I decided to go for a broad selection of flavors, the fact they sold cola flavored cartridges pretty much swung it!
I had to see what that was like.
All in all I got one pack of Cherry carts, one pack of V2 Red carts and their mixed flavor sampler pack that included the following:
- Three tobacco flavors: Sahara, Congress and V2 Red.
Starting with the tobacco flavors, the only one I wasn’t too keen on here was the Sahara. Congress and V2 were both very good giving me a nice smooth taste, good subtle throat hit and great vapor volume.
As for the ‘flavors’ I surprisingly liked the cola, was all a bit strange but once I got over the fact I was vaping cola it was OK!
My two favorites though were the cherry and menthol both great for something that little bit different.
I suppose the menthol should really be classed alongside the tobacco flavors though.
As always, flavors are a personal preference but I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
Another plus point (a very big plus point) is that you can buy ‘blank cartridges’ and bottles of e-liquid.
This allows you to refill your own cartridges and can work out a lot cheaper than buying pre-filled cartridges.
If you are new to vaping though I would recommend you stick to buying the pr-efilled carts to start while you get used to it.
There are also discounts for buying pre-filled carts in larger quantities.
As well as the standard blank cartomizers they have also recently released the ‘Liquimax Blanks’ that is a clear tank system that allows you to see the amount of e-liquid you have left. I will be trying these out in due course!
Overall – As a whole the flavors and vapor volume were very good, stand out flavors for me were Congress, V2 Red, Menthol and Cherry. The option to buy empty cartomizers to use with bottled e-liquid is also a big plus point.
V2 Economy Kit
Includes one battery 10 carts and chargers. I wouldn’t recommend this one purely because it only comes with one battery. Whatever kit you buy you really need 2 batteries.
V2 Standard Kit
This is the kit I bought and reviewed. It has everything you could need to get started! Its basically the same as the economy but you get an extra battery.
V2 Couples Kit
Great if you and a friend or partner are looking to try e cigarettes. You will get 2 Standard Kits that include everything you need to get going. A great saving against purchasing separately.
V2 Travellers kit
This kit comes with 2 batteries, 15 carts, a notebook e cig, the usual chargers plus a portable charging case. The charging case is a good buy even if you decide to buy separately as this charges your cigs whilst you are on the go.
V2 Ultimate Kit
This pretty much covers all bases when it comes to vaping, all the accessories you could ever want and need are in this kit.
For vapers that are looking for bigger, better battery life take a look at my review of the new V2 Series 3. A great pen style e cig, or more accurately vaporizer, that offers a multitude of vaping options.
Returns / Warranty
V2 Cigs are very confident in the quality of their electronic cigarette starter kits, so much so that they offer a 14 day ‘No Quibble’ money back guarantee.
The e cig kit must be returned in as new condition with no more than two cartomizers used.
This is a great selling point that only a handful of brands do in the UK and offers an almost risk free way of trying their product.
V2 Cigs UK allow 30 days to return any defective product (from date of purchase), this is not as extensive as the US warrant.
As always though please check out their T&C’s for all the up to date info on this.
V2 give multiple ways to get in touch with them, they have live support on their website, you can request a call back, telephone and email. When I have dealt with them they have been very responsive to queries and most importantly very helpful.
EcigClick have been given an exclusive V2 Cigs discount code for our readers to use to get 10% off any order. The voucher code can be found at the top of the page or the link above.
V2 Cigs Review – Overall
As you can probably tell if you managed to read through the above I really do rate the V2 Cigs product.
Not only for the reason that the battery, flavors, vapor production and the ability to change the product to your individual needs are good but also for the entire experience as a whole from ordering to delivery.
They have their customer services spot on as well, one of the best in the UK.
If you are new to vaping and you have been checking out V2 e cigs then you won’t go far wrong this electronic cigarette.
