Priding themselves on their quick service and excellent customer support, V2 have really made a big impact on the vaping world since their launch just four years ago. Quality is key for V2 and their products are designed and tested by engineers based in Florida and California.
One of the largest selection of different starter packs are offered by V2 with a Beginners Kit, Couples Starter Kit, Standard Plus Kit, Couple’s Starter Kit, Ultimate Starter Kit, Power Cig and Vapor Couture L’Essentials Starter Kit included in the options available. An On the Move Kit features a battery, five cartridges, personal charging case including a USB charging cable and a wall adapter plus user manual. The couple’s kit enables a good saving to be made on buying two standard kits.
The standard kit contains two batteries – one automatic and one manual – and ten cartomisers plus the USB and wall adapter. The kit is presented in a box with a magnetic flap lid and the overall presentation as with all products with V2 branding is professional. It is worth pointing out the launch of the new Standard Plus Kit, which features the inclusion of a portable charging case.
The most complete package offered by V2 is their Ultimate Starter Kit – although the price may at first appear a bit steep, once the contents have been inspected the realisation soon dawns that the package is actually a very good deal. The kit is built to the customisation of the user featuring a choice of twenty-five cartridges and three batteries with a wall adapter, smart charger, power cig, charging case, car travel adapter, lanyard, carry case and user manual all thrown in for good measure. Five items in this astonishing line-up are even newer or more powerful upgrades than what have gone before as the company seeks to address every gadget or accessory that any vaper will ever want. So much detail has been paid to this kit and hence it is no surprise that the presentation and packaging are also quality with all the contents in foam inserts within a durable, sturdy and large box.
V2 offer customisation options with their batteries in the majority of their starter kits from the choice of automatic or manual through to the size – short, regular and long – and the colour where the options include black, silver and blue. With the manual batteries, the pressing of a button on the side effectively fires up the battery to heat up the e-liquid while in the case of the automatic batteries a sensor causes them to be activated once a drag is taken. Both types of battery perform well and have a clean appearance with a nice quality feel – the familiar faux rings may be lacking but this is not the greatest loss.
As previously stated, V2 are keen to place an emphasis on quality which is why the results of batch tests of their e-liquid are made freely available. Their e-liquid is especially designed to provide a good throat hit and the user will find they will also get decent levels of vapour, which might be surprisingly thick given the small size of the product they are using. V2 also beat several other brands with a good choice of five different strengths of nicotine concentration ranging from the highest at 2.4% down to nicotine free.
A final positive note is the very wide range of flavours that V2 make available. Three different varieties of tobacco flavours have been designed to replicate the different smokes that would have been available from the old school cigarettes – these are Red, Congress and Sahara. The likes of the Menthol, Mint Tea and Peppermint flavours will also cater for traditional tastes, but it is also worth experimenting with the full and adventurous range of the specialty fun flavours, which are where V2 really come into their own. These include the likes of Grape, Cherry and Cola while the company also make many seasonal special flavours available from time to time such as Pumpkin Spice near Halloween!
