A good friend of mine has been getting electronic cigarettes since they first came out. He has gotten quite a few different brands (including; Green Smoke, White Cloud, Blu, South Beach Smoke, and Lucy). Luckily for me, he let me try them all before I purchased one for myself. After testing them all out I first narrowed it down to my top three choices (White Cloud, Green Smoke, & the V2 Cigs e-cigarette) and from there between price and features offered I decided to get the V2 Cigs e-cigarette.
The first thing I noticed about the original V2 Cigs electronic cigarette that I borrowed was that it had a button on the side of the battery, unlike any of the others I had seen. At first I thought it was a bad idea, I didn’t understand why anyone would want an electronic cigarette with a button to ignite the vapor when automatic ones are commonly available, but after using it for a little while I realized the reason of it is that if you are used to smoking real cigarettes that generally stay lit, you might find it annoying to use an automatic e-cigarette because there is always a delay from when you start inhaling to when the vapor starts getting cooked, (with all brands), making you want to puff on it twice every time, but with the use of the button on the V2 Cigs brand, you can get a nice thick drag from start to finish, by pressing it a moment in advance of taking a drag. You will find that it is already producing vapor as you begin to puff. This feature was actually one of the reasons I decided to go with the V2 Cigs e-cigarette instead of the others. When I ordered my kit it came with three different customization batteries, I decided to get two batteries with the button (both black), and one without (white), all with red tips.
Multiple Options For V2 Cigs
I also like that when ordering you can choose different battery lengths some of which have different options for the led colors. I personally don’t care for the 120mm battery, even if it lasts for 300 puffs it is still long enough and heavy enough that it feels cumbersome to me. (Also, be warned: the 120mm battery does not fit in the carrying case) The shortest battery feels the most natural to me, as I am an ex smoker and I never smoked 100’s. I ordered two short batteries and one standard size with my kit, and that seems to work out well for me. I also got the portable charger (it’s cool, it looks like a little cigarette tin) which is a nice feature not offered by a lot of other brands. Having that allows me to use the shorter e-cigarettes and not have to worry about them running out of energy while I’m out.
Possibly the most convincing thing of all about the V2 Cigs e-cigarette model is that out of all the e-cigarettes I tried it seemed to have some of the thickest, most consistent, and best tasting vapor produced. The next two in line for a consistent thick vapor are the White Cloud and the Green Smoke e-cigarettes, neither of which offer a portable charger or the button battery option that I was originally skeptical of, but began to prefer after using it. (I would suggest if you order a kit with more than one battery option, you try it out). Also the V2 Cigs e-cigarette allows for more options all around and is priced a bit cheaper than White Cloud e-cigarette (comparable with Green Smoke e-cigarette). Also, the small black batteries with the colored “filters”, in the sleek black carrying case, has a nice aesthetic to it.
I never really smoked flavored cigarettes as a smoker, but some of their vapor flavors are excellent, like the grape, it feels like smoking but leaves a slight candied taste that is really pretty good. The other flavors, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, mint tea, cola, are good as well, and the cowboy and congress flavors ( modeled after Marlboro reds, and parliaments, I think) taste and give a throat kick more akin to a real cigarette than most other brands I have tried.
Everything considered, the different battery and flavor options, the quality and consistency of the vapor produced, and the relatively cheap price for the quality of the product make this e-cigarette my first pick of all the e-cigarettes. I got my kit a couple weeks ago and I have been quite happy with it. Best part is, I was smoking a coffee flavored cartridge off my short black battery with the button (my favorite), while I wrote this, in my house, that I am not allowed to smoke in because I rent, with the windows up, cause it’s cold outside!
