How Do E Cigarettes Work?

How V2 Works

Unpacking Your V2

The first step is to open the box. Although V2 Starter Kits differ in size and contents, all V2 Cigs e-cigarette kits include at least one V2 battery, a Smart or Express Charger and a User’s Manual. We recommend that you thoroughly read your User’s Manual before using your V2.

Charging Your V2

Before using your V2 electronic cigarette for the first time, we recommend fully charging the battery. To charge the battery, simply screw the battery into the Smart USB Charger with cord and plug into your computer USB port. You can also plug the USB into a V2 Wall Adapter. If you purchased a Beginners Kit, use your Express Charger and USB port to charge your battery. When charging, the LED light on the charger will glow red. Your V2 is fully charged when the LED on the charger glows blue (it will glow green on earlier models). We recommend charging for at least 2 hours. Your V2 battery can last up to one week on a full charge.

Installing a Fresh Flavor Cartridge

Remove a V2 Flavor Cartridge from the blister foil and remove the rubber Stay-Fresh caps. Screw the cartridge securely onto your electronic cigarette battery. Your V2 electronic cigarette will enter standby mode as soon as you screw in the cartridge. Your V2 is now ready to use!

Enjoying Your V2

Kick start each new Flavor Cartridge by taking a few short puffs followed by a longer, slow puff. This action will warm the liquid and prime the heating element producing a thick consistent vapor with each subsequent puff. As you press V2 to your lips and inhale, the LED light at the tip will glow just like the tip of a burning cigarette. Relax and enjoy the rich, smooth V2 vapor.

V2 Electronic Cigarette Kits: General Usage Information

Your V2 Cigs electronic cigarette is comprised of two primary components, the Flavor Cartridge and the battery. V2 Flavor Cartridges are filled with our proprietary e-liquid; a solution of propylene glycol, water, flavorings and nicotine or non-nicotine, in your selected flavor and strength. Our cartridges contain built in atomizers, so there is no cleaning or maintenance required. Want more information on V2 E-Liquid? We are the only e-cigarette company who tests and publishes the results of each batch online to ensure you receive the highest quality product. Batch Testing / Downloads

Every V2 Flavor Cartridge is filled with enough of our proprietary e-liquid to produce between 150 - 220 puffs (approximate). You'll know when to throw away a cartridge when the vapor becomes weak and has a burnt taste. Cartridges are disposable and can be discarded at this time. Just screw off the old cartridge and screw on a fresh one—it's that simple! When the battery requires charging it will begin to blink. Standard V2 Automatic Batteries can last from 1 day to a week before they require recharging (this is dependent upon your smoking frequency and puffing style). The battery can be fully charged in 1-2 hours with included Smart Charger.

Tip: How to get the most vapor from your automatic battery:

Using a V2 Cigs electronic cigarette is a little different than using an old fashioned ignitable cigarette. To get the thickest vapor, you may want to prime your e-cigarette. To do this, take a few strong puffs in rapid succession before taking a long, slow puff. This action will heat the e- liquid to the right temperature and create thicker vapor in subsequent puffs.

Tip: What flavors and strengths should you choose?

It’s important to find the right combination of flavors and strengths when you first begin using electronic cigarettes. We suggest starting with a 0.6% strength or a mix of strengths, depending on your cigarette usage. Many people find the 1.8% flavor cartridges to be too strong. The best way to try multiple flavors is with a V2 Sampler Kit.

Tip: Manual Batteries:

Unlike V2 Automatic Batteries which activate by puffing, the V2 Manual Batteries have a small rubber button installed on the body of the e-cigarette. Like driving a stick shift car, many prefer these batteries because they offer a greater level of control and precision when it comes to vapor thickness. The most important thing is finding the right battery to fit your needs. As a general rule, the Automatic Batteries are a little easier to use, and better for hands-free multi-tasking. The Manual Battery can produce the thickest vapor and offers the most control.
