How about V2 Pro

10:49 PM Unknown 0 Comments

Portable vaporizers really took off on the market after the Pax by Ploom changed the game. Now there is a new product pushing the market to new levels, the V2 Pro Series 7 Portable Vaporizer made by V2 Cigs. The V2 Pro Series 3 was the first product introduced in this line and gave V2 Cigs a good reputation vs. comparable models from other vendors. Now, I think it's safe to say the Series 7 is going to make a name for V2 Cigs in this market segment.
V2 Cigs started out as a cig-a-like e-cig company and has evolved into so much more with their latest product improvements. They came out with the EX series cig-a-like that changed the way we look at cig-a-likes, but they were still missing out on the most advanced e-cig users in the market. Now with the Series 7, they can serve and meet the needs of vapers everywhere. Of all the e-cigs I've used, this is a device like no other. While it may be comparable to mods for e-cigs, it does so much more by being a 3-in-1 vaporizer. This unit can handle wax/oils in one cartridge, dry herbs and tobacco in another, and e-liquid in yet another cartridge. So if you use 1, 2, or all 3 of those mediums, this is the device for you.

The Series 7 main unit is comprised of 2 pieces to make it operational: the cartridge and the main unit itself. The main unit has the battery built-in and features a magnetic charging port at the bottom. You won't need to line up chargers anymore, you simply put the charging cable near it and the magnet will snap it into place. Then while it's charging, the ring at the bottom of the unit will glow red to indicate that it is still charging, and will turn green once it's complete. After it turns green, you simply pull the cable off the unit and it's ready for use.

In the middle of the face of the unit, you'll see a button and 3 lights in a crescent shape below that button. This button activates the unit, but can also be used to change the temperature settings. Pressing it 2 times very quickly will cause the 3 crescent shaped lights below it to cycle and when it's at the setting you want, simply hit the power button again and it will be set to that level. The top heat setting is when all 3 lights are lit up and the lowest heat setting is when only the bottom light is lit up.

The last part of the main unit to cover is the top where you put the cartridges. There is a groove on one side that the cartridges will align with so you can't put it in backwards. The Series 7 comes in 3 different colors currently which are black, blue, and steel.

There are 3 cartridges you can get with this unit: the liquid cartridge, the loose leaf cartridge, and the wax/oil cartridge. Each one works in its own way and the ring at the bottom of the cartridge will tell the Series 7 what cartridge you have installed and begin the heating process accordingly. You will receive two cartridges with your Series 7 purchase which are the liquid cartridge and the loose leaf cartridge. You can order the oil/wax cartridge separately if you want to use that medium, making it a true 3-in-1 vaporizer.

Since our site is geared towards electronic cigarettes first and foremost, we'll start with the liquid cartridge. This cartridge is quite impressive in the fact that it can hold 2.5ml of e-liquid, which lasts up to 1200 puffs depending on how you vape. It also matters what voltage you set the unit to in order to determine how many puffs you'll get. If you have the voltage set at 3.7V, you will get more puffs, but if it's at 4.7V, you'll get larger clouds of vapor, but less puffs because of the increased consumption of the e-liquid. The nice part about having the 3 voltage settings is that you can find the one that fits your vaping requirements best, without being too harsh for you. The V2 Cigs Series 7 also includes a safety feature that works by having a 10 second cutoff time on e-liquid per puff to protect you from overdoing it on your nicotine intake. The vapor production on this unit is superb. I tend to vape at the middle setting of 4.2V, and got a nice strong throat hit with solid vapor production. I would turn it up to 4.7V from time to time just to see how much vapor I could get out of this unit and was pleasantly surprised. The best part for me is the pure taste of the liquid using the Series 7. One other feature to mention on this cartridge before moving on is that it has a clear window to know the level of your e-liquid, making it easier to refill, which comes in handy!

Some of you may have been waiting for this part – the loose leaf cartridge is our favorite part of the unit. While we haven't tried the Pax 2, we have extensively used the original Pax. In our minds, that was the best loose leaf vaporizer on the market, until we used the Series 7. It addresses so many issues we had with the Pax, while bringing the ease of use we loved with the Pax. Since the mouthpiece is fixed on this unit, you won't have to worry about it getting stuck or not being able to turn it on like many people ran into with the Pax. Also, the oven (which is close to the size of the Pax oven) is located at the top of the unit rather than the bottom like the Pax. Since it's a cartridge too, you don't have to worry about holding the whole unit trying to fill it up. Instead, you just take the cartridge out, fill it up, put the top back on, and you're ready to vape. This cartridge uses continuous heat, so you just hold the power button until it turns on then the LED ring at the bottom will go from red, to yellow, to green to indicate it's ready for use. You'll get nice clouds of vapor from this unit (better than the Pax in our opinion) and it will run for a 2 minute cycle before shutting off. You can always run it again if you want, but we find the single cycle uses up most the material you put in the cartridge at the higher settings. The loose leaf cartridge brings mouthful after mouthful of vapor that you are sure to be satisfied with.

The last cartridge isn't quite released yet, so we can only offer information rather than how it performed. It's expected to be out sometime later this year and is capable of vaporizing wax, gel, and similar concentrates. This cartridge will most likely benefit the most from variable temperature settings since the medium that is used in here could have very different consistencies and some would require more heat while others would need to be set lower to prevent waste. So be sure when you do try this out that you start on a lower setting and work your way up.

In conclusion, the V2 Pro Series 7 by V2 Cigs is one of the best vaporizers on the market today because of its versatility, vapor production (regardless of the medium), and great affordability. While the Pax was dropped to $200 with the launch of the Pax 2, we can't really see a reason why you would get the Pax over the Series 7 which is priced at $149.99. This is especially a no-brainer if you want to use e-liquid and also loose leaf without having to own two devices. Even if you use this only for one medium, it's well worth the cost because of the performance. Let us know what you think of the Series 7 in the comments below.
