The first thing you should know about this vaporiser is that it’s not your average run-of-the-mill vaporiser. It’s not quite a mod or a sub-ohm device but it’s not like most other tanks or cigalikes you would have seen. V2 Cigs is a brand that tends to go above and beyond what you’d normally expect from your device and this one is no exception. As you’ll see from this V2 Pro Series 7 review, it’s one that you’ll want to upgrade to rather than start off with. That’s my advice anyway!
V2 Pro Series 7
Edited: originally priced at £150.00.
You can get the kit in black, blue or stainless steel and as you can see, I went for black. I got a blue V2 Pro Series 3 and didn’t like it because it looked too much like a colouring crayon.
You get everything you need in the starter kit – the vaporiser itself which comprises of a battery and tank, plus a USB charger and either a UK or EU plug. Now, I’ll come to the tanks in more detail later but you get two different types with the kit. One is designed for regular e-liquid and one is designed for loose leaf. You get all the bits and pieces you need for the loose leaf tank too – the brush and stick-thing which I’m assuming is to help clean it out.
Just a little heads up for you, you don’t get e-liquid when you order the starter kit so you will need to buy this separately if you don’t already have some at home. You can use ‘regular’ e-liquid too. You don’t need sub-ohm liquid like you would with a sub-ohm device such as the Vapouriz Sub Tank.
I have a whole load of good points to make here so I’ll make this part of the V2 Pro Series 7 review as short and sweet as I can.
**It’s a variable voltage battery and you can choose from 3.7, 4.2 and 4.7V. There are a lot of advantages to using a variable voltage battery and once you start using one, you won’t be able to go back! You can control the strength and the amount of vapour produced with that little button and for more info, check out the following:
**It’s a whopping 1800mAh capacity! When you consider that you would usually get around one hour for every 100mAh, you’ll get about 15-18 hours worth of use out of this before you’ll need to charge it up again. That’s VERY impressive. I actually DID get around 16 hours use out of it – one full day and then a few hours into the second day too. If you’re looking for an ecig or vaporiser with SERIOUS battery power, the V2 Pro Series 7 is definitely one I would recommend.
And now for a couple of the bad points… (And even then they’re really not that bad!)
**It’s a lot bigger than it looks. It’s just over five inches long with the cartridge attached and it weights about 120g with an empty tank. It’s got a diameter of just over 1.3 inches too. Slimline and discreet it’s definitely not. It’s still slightly shorter than the V2 Pro Series 3 though so if you found that one too long, I’d definitely say check the Series 7 out.
**If you’re using the loose leaf cartridge / tank (for ‘dry herbs’), the battery life is dramatically reduced. In fact, rather than the one and a half days I got for the e-liquid tank, I only managed an hour or two. However, this is a three-in-one device so I still found the positives outweighed the negatives.
**You can’t buy the batteries on their own. Although to be fair, they’d probably be quite expensive if you did…
One final tip I would like to mention is that you can use this vaporiser as a pass-through. This means you can continue using it whilst it’s plugged in and charging. I probably wouldn’t recommend doing this all the time though. I imagine it would have a detrimental effect on the life-length of the battery itself.
Tanks / Cartridges
As I’ve mentioned a few times in this V2 Pro Series 7 review, this is a three-in-one personal vaporiser so you have the option of three different tanks / cartridges.
You can get a regular e-liquid tank and use it just as you would a regular vaporiser. It has a 2.5ml capacity so you can fit quite a lot of liquid in there and I quite liked this as it meant I didn’t need to fiddle around refilling it all the time. As much as I love the smaller tanks and e-cigs like Vapouriz Fuse and the V2 Cigs Ex Series, I get really annoyed with the seemingly constant refilling. You don’t have this problem with the Series 7.
Now, I don’t know if it was because we were using a lot of (thick) menthol flavours in the tank but Dan and I found ourselves going through them quite fast. One tank (at £16.99 each) only lasted me for about a week to a week and a half before it tasted bad and I needed to replace it. We did buy a tank and only use tobacco liquid and it lasted a little longer – a couple of weeks. We were only using V2 Cigs e-liquid too.
The loose leaf cartridge was easy enough to use but you do need to play around with the temperature settings before you get the hang of it. When you push the button, lights glow from red to green to orange and this indicates when the device has heated enough for you to inhale on it. This isn’t for everyone obviously, but if you like to use a vaporiser and those loose leaf ‘dry herbs’, you have a device that fits everything in one.
The final cartridge is a wax cartridge and I’ve not had the privilege of trying it yet. I don’t really know much about wax or why you would want to vape with it. I also don’t fancy paying out almost £30 for the experience, either. Maybe later on!
Well-built and incredibly durable, the cartridges simply slip into the top of the large battery. Everything is connected in place with magnets, much like the Pro series 3.
Throat Hit & Vapour
The intention behind the V2 Pro Series 7 was to give you a versatile, three-in-one device that offers plenty of vapour and I’ll be honest, I think they’ve cracked it. Although it doesn’t give you quite as much vapour as some of the sub-ohm devices (like the Vapouriz Sub Tank), it still provides a decent amount of vapour. You get the chance to control it somewhat by playing around the variable voltage settings, too. If you need a more discreet vape for when you’re out and about, you can just turn the voltage down and it’ll produce less.
The throat hit and vapour will, of course, depend on the type and kind of e-liquid you’re using. If you want more vapour, go with higher VG e-liquid. It took me a while to get my head around the different kinds of e-liquid on the market, but hopefully, I will have made life easier for you with the following:
- What ELiquid Strength Should I Buy?
- What is the Best E Liquid UK?
- A Guide to E-Liquid: What’s The Difference Between PG and VG E-Liquid?
I tried to use mine with only V2 Cigs liquid as much as possible and I wasn’t disappointed. I’ve been a big fan of their e-liquid for a long time and you can see why in the V2 Cigs Eliquid Review.
Delivery & Customer Services
I’ll be honest, I’ve never really had a problem with any of my V2 Cigs stuff. I don’t tend to get in touch with their customer service guys that often. My packages have always been delivered promptly, and nothing has ever gone missing or broken on me.
You get free shipping if you spend more than £49.99 on the site, but it’s not overly expensive if you don’t. There’s a flat rate cost of £3.50 for Royal Mail Tracked delivery anywhere in the UK. They ship internationally also.
Is the V2 Cigs Pro Series 7 the best e-cig / personal vaporiser?
I did like this vaporiser, I can’t deny that. But for me, it just wasn’t quite right. It’s very big and masculine-looking so Dan liked it a lot more than I did. I’m also not the biggest fan of massive plumes of vapour (whereas Dan is) so there was a divide there too. Plus I found the cartridges / tanks a little too expensive when you were replacing them as often as we were.
If you’re looking for something that you don’t need to refill or re-charge every five minutes, this is a great one. It’s also for you if you want to use the dry/loose leaf cartridge. Or you just want an all-in-one that does a whole bunch of different jobs. Everything does what it says on the tin. It all works as it should do. It’s just not quite for me. Too big, too bulky and too expensive. Although, you can save 10% with that cheeky discount code… 😉
**Dan loved it and would regularly use it as his everyday vape if it wasn’t for the expense of the cartridges. He said – “It IS nice, I do enjoy using it, it’s nice to hold but it does look a bit phallic. I was concerned about what it looked like when I vaped in public.”
So, to conclude this V2 Cigs Pro Series 7 review, I’d like to finish off by saying I’d give it a well-deserved four stars out of five. It’s a great vaporiser, durable too, but just a little too pricey to use every day. I like to get it out for parties or to impress people!
