Remember that song “Simply the Best”? Well after 2 years of using E-cigs, I have to say V2 is “better than all the rest”.
I was a long time user of Green Smoke, but when I got a call from the guys at V2 Cigs inquiring about having me do a review, it wasn’t long before I switched to V2 permanently.
The bottom line here is that they excel in every area. Taste, vapor amount, battery life, price, everything. Plus, they just did a complete redesign of their line, and it’s even better than the original.
The menthol is incredible, it’s as close as you’re going to get to a real Menthol Cigarette . . . Period.
They also have Red (which simulates Marlboro reds), Sahara (which is like Camel), and Congress (which is the parliament clone).
They are all pretty spot on, the realism is just incredible compared to other brands.
Now myself, I like the flavors like Chocolate, Cherry, and Coffee. Those are really cool to smoke if you have quit and you just want to puff around here and there. Personal preference comes into play here, as some people might not like Cherry, so you obviously wouldn’t want to order Cherry cartridges. I myself hear the peppermint is awesome, but I don’t like peppermint, so I don’t really care LOL.
But I really wanted to get a real heavy smoker’s opinion on V2 Cigs, as I have been using Electronic Cigarettes for a couple years. My buddy Jay has never even tried them, so I asked him to come over to my hobby video studio and do a review on camera.
You can watch Jason’s review below (first time smoking an Ecig)
Yep V2 definitely is on top of my list as far as taste goes. They have the best chocolate I have ever tasted, even better than Green Smoke.
So far, I have used V2 for about 1 year and had no issues with the batteries whatsoever. The biggest issue with most brands is battery life. I am truly impressed with the battery and cartridge life. Some brands only last a half a packs worth, but V2 really seems to have got it right!
Also, the owner of V2 sent me an email yesterday and offered a 10% discount to PuffWeb.com readers. You can use the coupon code “PUFFWEB” for 10% off any V2 Product.
Update February 2012:
Since doing this V2 review, Puffweb.com has become very popular. I was sent about 10 or 12 kits from different brands asking me to review them. V2 also sent me their new kit. Me and Jason sat down and reviewed each one on video. Because V2 was my previous #1 pick, I gave them the courtesy of reviewing last so I could really compare all the other brands to V2′s NEW design.
Now, for awhile, I was thinking that V2 would be getting ousted as #1. However, after trying all the brands, and THEN trying the NEW V2 (which was redesigned from the ground up), V2 Cigs is STILL is the best E-cig is my opinion.
You see, you have all these companies trying to make a better product all the time, which is good for us, the consumer. Back in 2009, Electronic Cigarette brands all around were nowhere near the quality they are now, and V2 has continued to make their product better too. V2 had the highest rating overall for 2011. Now, in 2012, they are still the best as far as I can see.
Their battery life is the longest in the industry, vapor amount is huge, cartridge life is long, and best of all . . . their prices are low even though they are the best. That’s what makes them really incredible in my opinion. There are other kits out there that are twice the price, and not even as good. V2 is my personal recommendation . . .still.
“If you are looking for a good e-cigarette or thinking of trying them out I would recommend going with v2 ecigs. I have tried v2, green smoke, the safe cig, south beach smoke, and they all have certain pros and cons… but v2 is the best in my opinion… they have a little button on the end of some of their models that you hold down and it heats up the atomizer for you before you take a puff so the ease of draw is a lot better. I like v2 and green smoke’s flavor… I’m not much of a menthol smoker but green smoke has a very tasty menthol cartridge… the coffee flavored cartridges from v2 take the cake on flavor though. Another nice thing about both these brands is their “power cig”…it is like the normal ecig battery, but it plugs into a computer through usb so the ecig is always charged and you can get optimum hits from it. Another nice thing about it is if you are by a computer a lot you don’t have to waste your actual ecig batteries. Like I said everyone has their own tastes in flavors and whatnot. I hope this post was helpful to you guys! cheers”
“V2 cigs are the best in the business. From my personal stand point, They put 17 years of marlboro red smoking in the garbage. No more tar and chemicals poisining my body. I am happy “vaping” the v2. I feel 100% better than I did 3 months ago! I have tried other brands. The ecig brand tastes disgusting! Many companies sign you up for monthly billing cycles. BEWARE the fine print. V2 cigs does not do that!”
“The V2 cigs are the best. My wife and i had tried a couple of the other ecigs and was not pleased. The selling point for us was the comments on the volume of vapor and tasteflavor.rnrnWe would be hard pressed to change from V2. The productis great and the service is super”
“Hi everyone. I had such a wonderful experience with with V2 that I just had to come on here and tell everyone about it. A little backround on me: I’m a 32 year old mother of 4 and I have been smoking for about 20 years (started young, don’t we all). I have always wanted to quit but was afraid to because having 4 kids is just so darn stressful. You can say what you want about the health risks of smoking, but it is a great stress reliver. Anyway, So I finally tried Njoy and really didn’t think they were all that. I know quitting is suppose to be hard but I really had no desire to quit unless I really thought I could (if that makes sense to anyone lol). My husband suprised me about 2 weeks ago with the V2 starter pack and I have been hooked ever since. The taste is as real as real can get, and that it what I need if I am going to give myself a fighting chance to actually quit. The battery holds a good charge and the flavors are much bolder thn any other electronic cigarette i have tried. I have to give V2 a full 5 star rating add in a personal thank you from me and my family. It sounds stupid I know, but this has really changed my life for the better. Thanks so much V2 and puffweb.com”

v2 da bomb★★★★★
“Yo, them V2′s is the **it yall i’m tellin ya. I’m not relly all about this ecig stuff but my girl been all over me to do it so I tried V2. As much as it pains me to admit it, my girl knew what she was talking about and I be pumped that I did what she had said. I think peeps should check V@ out fo sho!!”
Flavors are great★★★★★
“Being the coffee nut that I am, I have to say that V2′s coffee flavor is just unreal. I swear I have tried every single ecig that has offered the coffee flavor and none of them came close to matching V2. Anyone who loves coffee like I do needs to check out the V2 version. I’m telling you, it will blow your mind!!rn”
“V2 is a wonderful product overall. IMO it is the best tasting electronic cigarette on the market. The flavors are so strong and full that I had no problem at all making the switch from regular cigarettes. The fact that you can get a starter kit for only $59 is just incredible value (I got almost the same exact kit from white cloud and it cost me $189.99!!!). I though the people on the phone were trying to rush me a little, but that is just nitpicking. This product is worth that kind of problem IMO. V2 is without a doubt the best electronic cigarette out there right now.”
“I just wanted to stop by and say that your site is hands down the best ecig site out there. I had never even heard of V2 until puffweb reviewed them. I agree with the majority that V2 is the best tasting ecig I have tried and I have yet to experience a customer support problem and I have been using them for about 6 monthes now. I really want to thank you for the good work you guys do here and let you know that for at least one person it has really left an impression. Keep up the great reviews”
“Hey Molly, that’s awesome, I’m so glad you hade the same experience I did. It does seem like everywhere you look people are raving about V2. It does almost seem too good to be true I agree, but once you try them, everyone I have talked too and myself have been hooked (in a good way lol). They really are the best brand on the market IMO. You just can not beat their combanation of taste and price. I def give V2 a big thumbs up!!”
“Just purchased my first V2 kit and I gotta say for $59 this is a heck of a deal. I used to use SmokingEverywhere and their kit is $149. Not only that, but V2 has a stronger more reel smoking feel than any other ecig I have tried. I’m serious, this is not too good to be true, V2 is the real deal. I took one drag out of the menthol and was instantly hooked and ready to switch brands.”
my 2 cents★★★★☆
“Let me say first that I am not a big fan of electronic cigs. For the most part the ones I have tried just have not lived up to their advertising IMO. That being said, V2 has been the best brand I have tried by far. I thought the flavor was more real than any other electronic cig that I have ever tried. Since I got my pack from here, I just thought I’d drop by and give my 2 cents”
tried em all★★★★☆
“I have tried several different brands of eletronic cigarettes (greensmoke,the safe cig, white cloud) and I have to say that V2 matches or exceeds each and every one of them. The drag and inhale is so smooth and real like that for the first time since getting off real cigarettes I felt the enjoyment of smoking. V2 has made quitting that much easier on me I can tell you that. The only slightly negative thing that I might say is that they could make their flavors a tad bit stronger. But in all honesty that is really nit picking. I had a very enjoyable experience that was worth every penny and I will continue to use the V2 brand.”
“V2 is the best! Also has a great price point!”
I'm a skeptic★★★★★
“I was very skeptical about even trying ecigs, but my wife has been begging me to quit and I just can’t see anything else working. I tried V2 as my first brand and there will never be another. I was literally shocked at how real it tasted and felt. For the first time I really feel like I have a chance to actually suceed at quitting. I really don’t wanna come across as someone who is being overly nice, but I am jut so impressed with V2 and their product. I had heard from friends that while ecigs were better than any other quit smoking products on the market, they still were not all that close to the real thing. I don’t knw about any other brands I admit, and I will never have to because V2 is as close to the real thing as you can get.rn”
pull is great★★★★☆
“I just got my new V2 kit in the mail and it was even better than I expected. V2 has been my favorite brand for a while now and when I heard they were making changes I was kind of sad because I already thought the product was top notch. I am so happy to say that I was not let down in the slightest by the new V2 kit. The vapor is as smooth as ever, and the flavor strength has even been improved (did not think it was possible because V2 already had IMO the best flavor of all the e cigs I have tried). The main difference i noticed was how easy the pull is now compared to before. I used to have to puff a lot harder to get the type of hit I wanted. Now I barely have to suck and I get tons of vapor. Overall I am very happy with the new V2 and would recommend it to everyone.”
just plain good★★★★★
“V2 is the best e cig I have tried. I never give anything 5 stars because 5 stars is perfect and IMO nothing is perfect. That being said, there is not a single e cig I would rather use than V2. It may not be perfect, but it is pretty darn close!”
Hits right away★★★★★
“I have been hearing about V2 non stop ever since I started using e cigs over a year ago. I finally gave in and tried them about 2 weeks ago and I have to say I was fairly impressed. I agree that they are the best brand (at least the best brand I have tried) and would recommend them to other smokers who want to try e cigs for the first time. I will say that anyone who is trying them should be a little careful with that first hit. Most e cigs you have to puff on a few times to get it going, but V2 is not like that so be prepared lol.”
“***READ IF YOU’RE UNSURE ON WHAT BRAND IS KING ***rn(and this is not a paid review. Just a great product that sells itself)rnrnI’ve been using V2 successfully for almost a year and tried two brands prior to that in addition to the 4 new brands I just sampled that Puff Web lists, and many other sites mention as “top rank” brands. While a couple of the brands are close to the quality of V2, (with one in particular) V2 is still tops and anyone that is considering breaking into e-cigs should just start off with the best and not mess around. Quitting smoking is not easy, so you’re going to need an efficient tool that provides similar satisfaction and V2 does that. I know from experience that before V2, I tried another brand and it did NOTHING for me so I gave up on the e-cigs experiment until I came across V2 and I haven’t looked back. If you feel like reading further, then be go right ahead. If you’re curious as to why I stand by V2′s quality as well as the other features that make V2 the leader, read on.rnrnTested to Daternrn• V2rn• Blurn• Safe Cigrn• Green Smokern• South Beach Smokern• Smoke Tiprn• Bull SmokernrnWhy They’re The Bestrnrn• Best Battery and Several Types – I am big into vapor and the amount it produces and you’ll be disappointed using a brand that doesn’t provide a similar appearance in terms of volume and feel to the traditional cig. Not only is the quality (amount of vapor) the best, they have several types (Long, Standard, Short, Automatic, Manual, Colors). After many experiments with different brands, it boils down to battery performance and the other top brands that are highly ranked have good batteries with certain characteristics that I may prefer over the V2 battery, but overall, the V2 battery is the best. While I do like the draw of Green Smoke, I already had two issues with the battery from the starter kit and honestly, that’s going to happen for all brands, but not a good first impression off when reviewing a starter kit, which happens to be, one of the most expensive. South Beach Smoke has an amazing battery that produces similar vapor and a great smooth draw. What makes them unique is the new deluxe battery with the crystalized tip. They’ll be ranked as my #2 brand out of the ones I tested.rnrn• Flavors – I’m not into the fruity flavors personally. I want a real tasting tobacco flavor that mocks a real cigarette. As far as taste, I don’t care if you smoked Marb’s, Camel’s, Parliment’s or any other tobacco non-flavored cig, the “Congress” flavor is the best juice period!! It’s so good, that I haven’t come across any concoction that matches it!! However, for non-flavored, they still offer Red, which is OK, and Sahara, which was my favorite before the new Congress recipe came out. As far as appealing to the flavor type consumers, they have Cherry, Vanilla, Chocolate and one flavor in particular, that I even enjoy and is unique to the industry, Cola!! What I like about the Cola is it’s got a nice flavor but not overpowering for sweetness. For you menthol lovers, they have Menthol but you might want to try the Peppermint. I enjoyed that more and happy to see they changed the color to a light blue from the original pink.rnrn• Customer Service – This Company’s customer service is great. We touched on batteries malfunctioning earlier, and have I had problems with my V2 batteries, absolutely. Has V2 replaced my batteries that stop performing as well 6 months down the road? YES and they won’t hassle you about it unless of course you go swimming with it on or accidentally wash it by mistake, but the point here is that they do everything and anything to make you feel like a valued customer and stand by their LIFETIME warranty. The speed of shipment for their product is consistently fast.rnrnHope this review has helped. Sorry for the length but as I stated earlier, it’s important to choose a high performing product when starting your new journey to improved heath. They’re lots of good quality brands and I may use a few of the ones I listed myself, but as of today, V2 is still the overall leader!! PERIOD!!”
shipping takes awhile★★★★☆
“Although i was a little dissapointed in the shipping (I had shipping problems that I just don’t want to get into lol) I was completly turned around when I actually recieved V2. Man was it worth the wait. I had been a Blu user for the past 2 years and after some prodding I finally decided to try it, and V2 blows Blu out of the water. It is so much smoother and the flavor is the most intense and gratifying that I have experiened in an ecig. This is with out a doubt the best ecig I have tried and I would implore every vaper out there to try V2 at least once. This is an excellent product!!!rn”
- Mark H
Just got it!★★★★☆
“I just got my V2 in the mail yesterday and just wanted to thank everyone at puffweb.com for their awesome work. I also love the V2 e cig. It’s pull is so much better than any other brand I have tried so far. I’m starting to get heavy into vaping and so far I swear by V2. The only thing that kept them from getting the full 5 stars is that it takes them longer to ship than some other companies I’ve dealt with. My overall experience is still excellent though. Thanks again Dan & Jay!!!rn”
Happy so far★★★★☆
“I’ve only been into the ecig experience for about 3 weeks.V2 is the only brand I have tried. And I see no reason to look elsewhere! Within 3-4 days of the V2 experience I could no longer stand the taste of my analog cigs (Marlboro Smooth). I began with the starter kit and chose menthol and peppermint flavors at .06 nicotine (nicotine has never been a real issue for me; smoking is just a nervous habit).rnrnCarts:rnThe menthol is full-flavor. It took a while to adjust from the Smooths (which are more peppermint-y than menthol). It was almost like smoking Vicks Vapor rub. LOL Eventually, I got over my peppermint bias and began enjoying the menthol. I would definitely recommend the menthol.rnrnThe peppermint flavor is VERY mild. Too mild really. I wish it had more of the zing of the Marlboro Smooths or even (here’s wishing!) like an IceBreakers Frost breath mint! I will order these again because a little peppermint is better than none, but just note that it is only very lightly flavored. (Oh, and the carts don’t seem to last a long as the menthol. Maybe because the flavor is so mild, the end-of-cartridge burnt taste isn’t masked.)rnrnAs a side note – V2 offers customization of cart flavors. Their site cites a plethora of flavors they’ve created. But it is rather a huge ($225 for 100 carts) risk since they can’t be returned. Still the temptation lingers to try for that perfect peppermint!rnrnI just received my 2nd order from V2 that included a pk of Cherry carts. Not really impressed with the flavor of these. Again, the flavor seems too mild. But that could just be me and my predilection for a little “bite” from my smokes.rnrnBattery:rnThe starter kit came with a standard battery and usbwall charger. As I said before, smoking is a nervous habit and the V2 allowed my to vape in the office all day on one charge. It didn’t always last for the drive home, but you have to figure I got 8-9 hours of moderately heavy vaping. Not too shabby.rnrnShipping:rnLike molasses in winter. Don’t wait until you’re on your last cart to reorder. Give it a least a full business week or more! But don’t let that stop you from trying V2. It’s a small drawback to the huge benefit of breaking the analog habit!rnrnMisc:rnEverything worked on arrival.rnrnHappy Vaping! =Drn”
