I’ve had a couple of V2 disposable e cigarettes sitting in my drawer for the last month waiting to be reviewed and finally find myself with a little time to crack open the packet and give these products a try. I’ve been looking forward to testing these products out as I’ve enjoyed using this companies regular e cigs in the past and I know how popular they are with the vaping community.
The packaging of the V2 has been very nicely implemented. Your single disposable comes in a clean looking clear plastic box about 5 inches long branded with the familiar V2 logo. On the back there’s some information about the product, ingredients list, and a coupon code to get you a 15% discount on your next purchase.
Happily the V2 is also very easy to open without the use of scissors or a sharp knife, a change from the annoying packaging many electronic products seem to come in these days.
Like those available from Green Smoke you can choose between a tobacco flavor or menthol when ordering these. Both flavors are very nice and which you choose will come down to personal preference. Most people will do well to try both if they are ordering for the first time to see which they prefer. My favorite, as usual, is the tobacco option but I like to have a variety of flavors to hand when vaping in case I feel like a change.
How Does It Vape?
Taking a draw on the V2 reveals a vaping experience which is as satisfying as I would have expected given my knowledge of this company’s regular starter kits. Taking a draw is as easy as it needs to be to ensure you can inhale enough vapor to make the effort worth it.
A slight negative I notice straight away is that the battery has an automatic cut off which kicks in after about 3 seconds. This isn’t a huge deal as a three second draw gives you enough of a hit to be satisfied. If I’m nitpicking though I would have liked to have seen an extra second of inhalation available for maximum vaping pleasure.
Vapor production is excellent on this little disposable, just about perfect to give you that sensation of smoking without the tar and carbon monoxide. Combine that with the juicy throat hit and you have product which lives up to the brands reputation, and one which you will be more than happy to puff on until it runs out of steam.
For me the V2 disposable isn’t quite up to the standard of the product sold by Green Smoke, but it’s definitely one of the best on the market at the moment.
How Long Does It Last?
The back of the pack claims the V2 dispoable should last you about as long as 40 cigarettes. In my view this is optimistic but all manufacturers seems to overstate just how long their cigs will last you. However this might be due to the fact that vapors take more draws than they would have when smoking real cigarettes.
I consider myself an average vapor in terms of the number of draws I take over the course of a day. I was a 20 a day smoker in the past but I definitely take more draws on an e cigarette than I use to on the real thing. With that in mind I found that the V2 disposable lasted me a little less an a full day of regular vaping.
How Big Are They?
Check out the photo below to see a comparison in size between the Green Smoke and V2 Disposables.
And here is one with the V2 next to a bulb of garlic just for fun
As you can see the V2 has a size advantage over it’s main competitor. This is mostly due to the fact the Green Smoke comes with a larger cartridge and needs a bigger battery to ensure it doesn’t run out of power before the e liquid runs dry. If size is important to you then opt for the V2, for an extended vaping experience pick the Greensmoke.
How Much Do They Cost
Pricing is an area in which the V2 is a step ahead of the Green Smoke Disposable option. Whereas with Green Smoke you get a pack of 6 for $59.97 V2 gives you the following options:
- 3 Pack of Disposables – $24.94
- 5 Pack of Disposables – $39.95
- 10 Pack of Disposables – $74.95
If you are looking for high quality disposable e cig and don’t want to buy a pack of 6 or spend too much cash then V2 is currently your best option.
Should You Buy?
This product would be perfect for someone looking for a one time use e cig they can take with them on a night out as a social smokerm and of a bit higher quality than those offered by Premium and Apollo. If you want to vape full time then it would definitely be more economical to invest in a full starter kit, although you might want to give these a shot to help you decide if the V2 eliquids are to your particular taste. I personally prefer Green Smoke but can see the attraction of the V2 if you want to buy a smaller pack and don’t want to spend 60 bucks to find out if you like them.
