V2 Electronic Cigarette Review

November 13th, 2013


The V2 cigs are up there as one of the best selling electronic cigarettes available today.

The V2 Cigs electronic cigarette consists of two main components, the cartridge (also called the cartomizer) and the battery.


As with most of the e cig brands, V2 cartridges have a built in atomizer (the part that heats up and creates the vapor) and they fill their cartridges with their own proprietary e-liquid and offer various flavors and nicotine strength levels. The advantage of built in atomizers is that there is no cleaning or  maintenance required, they are disposable cartridges.

Each cartidge should last for around 200 puffs, which is approximately the same as a pack of normal tobacco cigarettes.  V2 even go to the length of quality control testing each batch of cartridges and publishing the results online.

When to replace a cartridge? You will know it is time to replace the cartridge when the vapor becomes weak and has a burnt taste. Cartridges are disposable so just unscrew the old cartridge and screw on a fresh one—it’s that simple!



The standard V2 batteries can last from a day to a week before they require recharging, depending on your smoking frequency. When the battery requires charging it will begin to blink and can be fully charged in 1-2 hours using the included charger.

The nice thing with the V2 starter kits is that they come with 2 chargers. A standard wall charger and a USB charger. The USB charger is a nice addition and whilst it will not charge the e cig as quickly it is a lot more convenient. I like to leave the e cig charging via a USB port while at work, disconnecting it to have a vape and then reconnecting once finished.

They also provide various size batteries so even the (I hope previously) heavy smokers will not find themselves in the unenviable position of having a nicotine pang but with only a flat battery to accompany it.

There are 2 different types of battery available. The manual battery is noticeably different with a rubberized button on the body of the cigarette.


Using the rubber button you are able to produce more vapor per puff than is possible with the automatic batteries. Just like with cars, the manual variety provides greater precision and level of control. You get to decide just how thick, or thin, the vapor is.


Same as smoking a normal cigarette, you just puff and it automatically activates the battery and produces vapor. Note however that you need to prime the cigarette by taking few initial quick, small puffs to warm up the liquid temperature and thus start producing thicker vapor. The automatic battery option is better for hands-free smoking and mimics the action of smoking a typical cigarette.


V2 are a reliable, established company and so you will have no issue if you find you need to replace any faulty parts or with the customer service. The prices of the starter kits are reasonable and contain all that is required to get you up and running to see if vaping is for you or not. The cartridge flavors offered are pretty basic but it is easy enough to buy e-liquid separately if you wish to experience any of the different or wacky flavors that are available nowadays.



Green Smoke Electronic Cigarette Review

The Safe Cig Electronic Cigarette Review

June 24th, 2010


UPDATE: The Safe Cig website is no longer operational. We reached out to them to find out if it will be back up online in the future but have had no reply so it doesnt look good. I would advise you to look into other brands.

The SafeCig is one of the few electronic cigarettes companies that provide you with a Lifetime Warranty. This Lifetime Warranty shows the confidence they have in their product, as the most common problem with many electronic cigarettes is the battery life, which is covered in the warranty. I don’t know about you but a lifetime warranty certainly instills confidence in me that I will be buying a solidly built and durable product.

The Safe Cig have updated their design Read full review…

Nucigs are smaller in size, lightweight, and far more comparable to the look and feel of smoking a real cigarette than most of their competitors.

Njoy Electronic Cigarette Review

June 22nd, 2010


UPDATE: USA Company changed name so this review is no longer relevant. Note that there is a UK company of the same name but unrelated.

NJOY offers a variety of electronic cigarettes. They offer the NJOY NPRO, which is similar in size to a normal tobacco cigarette. They also offer the NJOY NCIG, which is, according to them, their classic electronic cigarette package. The NCIG is slightly longer than the NPRO and is more of a “pen style” e-cigarette.  They also sell the NJOY CIGAR, which is similar in taste to the NJOY e-cigarette, but has a wood grain finish and, unsurprisingly, a cigar-like shape.
