If you haven’t already noticed, we are big fans of V2 Cigs at CocktailNerd. After trying dozens of e-cigarette brands, they are still our top pick and the vast majority of our readers agree. We recently heard that V2 was developing a brand new line of batteries and cartridges called the V2 EX. They have graciously allowed us to have a sneak preview of their V2 EX cartridges and we’re going to try the batteries soon too! If you are a V2 Cigs fan, you are going to be thrilled with this new product line. I tried the V2 EX cartridges today and they were amazing!
The new V2 EX cartridges are different because they are made with absolutely no filler products. By eliminating the cotton inside the cartridge, you get better flavor and the cartridges will last twice as long. You can even see how much e-liquid you have left in your cartridge through a little window in the side. These cartridges have an airtight seal and they don’t leak, so no worries on that front.
When we first got the sample pack of the V2 Cigs EX cartridges, I couldn’t wait to see how they would perform. Right away, I noticed they are packaged nicely in that typical professional V2 way. The cartridges are white and you can see the V2 EX logo on the side as well as the flavor and nicotine strength. There is also a little window on each side where you can see how much e-liquid is left.
The most incredible part of the new V2 EX system is a tiny microchip inside that regulates how much vapor is coming out. Basically, it works to insure that you get the same amount of vapor from beginning to end, rather than strong vapor at a full charge and light, wispy vapor as the battery runs out. After trying it, you can definitely tell a difference!
I’m used to priming an e-cig for a minute or two before I can really tell how the vapor will be, but after my first puff in the V2 EX cartridge, I had a huge cloud of vapor. It was so consistent from literally the first tiny puff to the last. I have never seen an e-cig cartridge that didn’t vary in vapor levels at least a little before this, but these cartridges are truly consistent. I was honestly kind of blown away by how well they worked!
You can also tell a difference in flavor. I already like V2’s line of flavors, but the new cartridges just make them even better. By taking out the cotton inside the cartridges, the flavor is just cleaner and it stays the same the whole time. You don’t have that slightly chemical taste towards the end anymore. It wasn’t a big deal, but eliminating it just proves that V2 isn’t going to be satisfied with anything less than perfect.
Overall, the new V2 EX cartridges provided an incredibly smooth vaping experience. The flavor was better, the vapor consistency was better, and the cartridges last twice as long. Honestly, I have no complaints. I think these cartridges are going to be selling like crazy the minute they are available!
Unfortunately, V2 doesn’t have them available quite yet, but they are coming really soon. Stay tuned to the CocktailNerd blog and we’ll alert you the minute they are up for sale so you can give them a try. You won’t be disappointed!
