The Standard Length V2 electronic cigarette battery is the most popular battery we offer. This battery ships standard with all V2 Express Starter Kits. It is the perfect balance between weight, length and operating time. The V2 Standard e-cigarette battery is designed to last at least 200 puffs before recharging. The standard battery is available in both automatic and manual switch versions. See below for details.
The V2 Standard Length Battery operates at 4.2 volts, 250 mAh. Length: 79 mm /3.11”. 110 mm /4.3” with Flavor Cartridge attached. Diameter: 9.25 mm/0.37”.
The V2 Automatic Battery is the easiest to use if you are new to electronic cigarettes. All you do is puff to activate the atomization process. They are better for hands-free operation, and require “priming” to achieve the thickest vapor volume. To do this, take a few short puffs before a long slow puff to get the e-liquid to the optimal temperature. Automatic Batteries will usually get around 25% more puffs between recharging, but with less vapor thickness than Manual Batteries.
The V2 Manual Battery has a small rubber button which you must press to activate the atomization process. They are preferred by many experienced users because they offer a greater lever of control and produce thicker vapor with less puffs than the Automatic Battery. We recommend trying one of each to determine which battery style is right for you.

Haven't had a better battery yet! I've only used auto but it works great. I suggest getting two if you use it that much. While one charges for three hours you still have your spare.

I opted for the automatic batteries in my started kit and I am loving them. They seem to charge pretty quick and last a whole day for me. They also heat up the carts nicely and produce a thick vapor. My one battery worked well the first day but then it only worked intermittently. I tried cleaning it and resetting it but no go. The only way it worked was for me to take a very heavy drag. I contacted customer support and a few days later, I had a replacement. I am impressed at how quick and easy it was to get an exchange! So far, the new battery is working fine after a few days. Definitely a nice quality battery that works and lasts well.

V2 Cigs is currently the brand that all six best e cigarette US review sites polled, show is far and away the best electronic cigarette company, hands down. V2 Cigs is the best e cigarette US that you can buy at the moment

I tried mulitple different and wasnt satisfied until trying the V2, best menthol flavor by far! The new V2 ex blanks offer great vaping. I was like another and a little paranoid about my batteries running dead. I started with the starter kit and it had 1 manual and 1 push button both white, I ended up ordering, a silver, blue and black. The silver and blue seemed to work improperly and/or die very quick. Unfortunately on a recent flight from NJ to MI I will be darned if I didnt lose 3 of my batteries, I panicked and went back on board asking the flight attendants have they any of these (showing the ones I still had) they looked at me crazy and looked under my seat and no sorry ma'am we dont see them. I have to order another battery and I think I will stick to the white since they seem to work better.

After trying a couple of other e-cig brands (and mostly having a bad case of the "short battery life and too long to recharge" blues) a coworker turned me on to V2. Man, what a difference!
As a pack a day smoker for 30+ years, it's great to have a battery that goes all day on a single charge, and the V2 Standard does just that. I can usually squeeze out an entire day per charge, tho it's nice always having a backup battery (on standby and already charged in my wonderful V2 charging case, I might add:) for those days that refuse to end.
Both the manual and auto are good. The manual is nice for a controlled vape without having to toke the battery first in order to prime it. The auto is phenomenal for hands-free vaping while driving.
Tip: if you miss the soft feel of having an analog cigarette in your mouth, you can cut the tip off one of those cartrige condoms and slide it on the cart, allowing you to hold the cig in your teeth and smoke just like the old movie stars. If you save a bit of the rim around the edges when you cut, the condom will stay in place nicely on the end without sliding up and down the cart.
Bottom line: V2 batteries are so much better than the competition that I wonder how the rest of 'em manage to stay in business. If you're considering e-cigs, don't waste your time and money on other products like I did; go with V2, and you'll be glad you started with the best!

Love my v2! Great customer service, great product, and happy I chose v2. Keep up the good work!

I would recommend the automatic battery. You get plenty of vapor and they are very durable.
I would also recommend the standard length, the mini does drain noticeably faster.
Just my opinion, been using V2 for almost a year, I've been very pleased with products and service.
I never write reviews but this company is 100% class.

I bought a Starter Kit back in 2011 and LOVED it, so much that I finally convinced my husband to switch over. I let him keep my old batteries and bought two new ones for myself. I love these new batteries even more! They're lighter and now they're available in pink.
Just a little side note on the color; if you're looking at the pink it is a pale pearly pink. It appeared darker on my screen.

I used to use a press the button type of ecig before I made the switch to v2cigs. The problem I had was my lanyard kept pressing the button and draining the battery. I do not have that problem at all with these. The length is perfect and it feels like a real cig. The battery lasts me all day and I just charge it at night. It has never gone dead in the entire time I owned it. So I give it two thumbs up.

These are my new favorite e cig! Initially, I wasn't really loyal to any particular brand until my sister turned me on to these. Now V2Cigs are my constant companion and I really enjoy them. Also, they're heavy on qualitty and selection, so they just can't be beat. You should definitely give this brand a try - you'll never look back.
