V2 Starter Kit
This review is on the V2cigs V2 Standard Kit found at v2 cigs. I purchased it on sale for $79.95. They agreed to give 10% off by using the code ecritic or ECRITIC. I have seen this product around for a while. About 2 weeks ago I purchased a variety pack of flavored cartomizers from them as well as some adapters they sell which let me use them on my Njoy battery, just to see what all the fuss is about. The fuss is they are listed as one of the best in multiple “review” pages. I’ve always been a bit jaded on one page, top 10 web sites. So, I wanted to see for myself.
What started me down this path was one flavor: “Coffee”. It is, by far, the best single flavor e-liquid I have ever tasted! After using it up, I knew I had to have it. So, I ordered the kit… and they were out of coffee! :( Well, I went ahead and ordered cola, 18mg… it comes with 10 cartridges, which is just amazing. Most others, including the Blu I purchased, comes with just 5.
Here is the rest of the kit:
- V2 Batteries: 2x Included (1x Auto & 1x Manual)
- V2 Cartridges: 10x Included
- USB Charger: Included
- A/C Wall Adaptor: Included
- User Manual: Included
The box is really sturdy as well. The whole kit has very nice quality. The design is plain Jane, but not an eye sore. I also like the websites overall design. The setup and flow of the site makes it really easy to navigate.
Since they are in Florida, I got them super fast. They offer 2 types of USPS delivery; Special and Priority. But, it is worth noting, they also offer FedEx in all shipping options that FedEx has as well.
The quality of the batteries and cartomizers are really high. They connect easily, the flavors are well developed and the batteries are responsive and get the job done every time. I’ve noticed that not all KR808D-1s are made the same. V2Cigs must have a great quality control team. Also, their customer service is the best in the business. Anytime I have to contact them, they are fast, friendly and always helpful. Quality doesn’t just mean hardware it also means the company workers that make each ecig puff is top-notch. Great work.
The batteries are KR808D-1 threaded, I like that the batteries come in different types and colors. You can choose both to be manual (you have to note it in the comments field). Lots of colors, which at first I didn’t think mattered much, until I got my midnight blue batteries, very nice. As to function, they work great. Great resistance on the draw, lasts about 2-3 hours depending on use. They recharge in about an hour and a half to 2 hours, pretty standard.
I love their flavors, just wanted to say that. They offer e-liquid, but only in a few flavors. From the variety pack, the flavors I enjoyed the best were:
- Coffee (of course)
- Cola (it actually tastes like Coca-Cola)
- Menthol (A really good version of menthol, btw)
The others were pretty good too. Mainly it’s how well the flavors were made that made the cherry and others vapable. The cartomizers last about a day for me, again times differ depending on how you use them.
The throat hit is amazing; you really get that back of the throat hit which reminds me of smoking a cigarette. It’s a warm mouth full and the flavor begins on the pull, not just the exhale, which is really nice. So far they give the best throat hit in a kit by far.
The vapor is really nice as well, probably due to the battery, but not sure. This definitely works better than the adapter in the vapor and throat hit department.
I can’t get over the flavor; Very rich. And the fact they actually sell adapters so you can use their cartomizers with your batteries and even tell you which adaptor works with what battery is just amazing. Great work V2cigs.
