Here is what marks the difference between big e cig companies and little ones: large firms grow with their customers; small firms stagnate. It is not uncommon for mini cig firms to fold when their products fail to capture the imagination of a sophisticated audience and when that firm refuses to extend their selection to accommodate customers’ growing needs and enlarged experience.
They fold or they dwindle, unable to get enough light while hovering in the shadow of large and progressive firms like V2 Cigs. I am talking about them particularly because they made a brave move by adding a vaporizer to their e cig catalogue.
What are Vaporizers?
A vaporizer is similar to an e cig but heats different materials which are often associated with marijuana and the use of other drugs, but vaporizers can also be used to vaporize medicinal marijuana and tobacco leaves. Smokers sometimes prefer the authentic smell and taste of tobacco in this format over e liquid which cannot fully emulate the aroma and flavor of a pipe or a cigarette. Smokers still enjoy nicotine and familiar tastes but without actual smoke when they buy a vaporizer.
Most e cig companies do not tread this ground, providing eGo batteries instead if anything (like the Halo Titan or Volcano Inferno), but V2 decided to do things differently. While the Pro Series 3 works with wax, essential oils, and herbs, it can also be used as an e cig and retains the discrete, sleek pen shape. That means a battery charge lasts 4 or more hours before needing a charge and is fully portable.
The starter kit comes with an e liquid cartridge and battery; other cartridges are sold separately. Herbal cartridges have been released with essential oil/wax cartridges to come.
Also, advanced versions of the Pro Series which allow vapers to adjust the temperature manually should be coming out any time. The Pro Series 3 will give way to variable voltage mods essentially, so V2 Cigs satisfies two audiences at once: advanced vapers and people who use vaporizers.
Starter Kit for the Pro Series 3
Your starter set costs $69.99 and comes with one cartridge, one battery, and a USB charger. Prices for these pieces when sold individually are unclear: a frustrating element of the V2 Cigs website. Which price is right? I don’t know. You will probably have to get to the checkout to find out. At least you qualify for free shipping since the cut-off is $50.
You can add $18.36 for a 25-ml bottle of e liquid with up to 2.4% nicotine. The e liquid cartridge will hold 1.6 ml. I read suggestions for this product and found them to be contradictory.
Within the space of a single paragraph, I was told the cartridge could be used more than 20 times then warned to replace it after 15 to 20 uses because the wicks degrade. Again, which is it? V2 Cigs needs a new writer for their product page.
The USB charger is a fun item which attaches magnetically to the battery and also allows you to vape and charge all at once. An LED light on the battery’s bottom perimeter changes color to indicate the status of your charge.
What I love most about the V2 Cigs Pro Series 3-in-1 is the magnetic connection. Its battery features a raised portion which guides each cartridge into place and replaces a cone, acting to unify and protect your connection and get rid of that middle seam.
The battery automatically communicates with your cartridge to choose a temperature setting so you always vaporize materials and prevent burning them or providing too little heat. Magnets are less prone to wear and tear, so your connection should always be solid.
