V2 Standard Plus Kit, Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit
The V2 Standard Plus Kit includes all the essentials you’ll find in the V2 Standard Kit, PLUS a V2 Portable Charging Case. You’ll get everything you need to make the switch to a smoke-free lifestyle, plus a PCC — perfect for keeping your e-cig batteries charged and protected when you’re on the go.
The V2 Standard Plus Kit is equipped with the V2 Smart Charger. This neat little charger has a sophisticated internal chip and the ability to charge your battery nearly twice as fast, while preventing overcharging.
You may select up to 2 cartridge flavors, in the strength of your choice, to be included in your V2 Standard Plus Kit. Our customers cheer for our unique V2 flavors and we have one that is sure to become your favorite. Our popular flavors include: V2 Red (American Tobacco), Sahara (Turkish Tobacco), Congress (Refined Tobacco), V2 Menthol (Refreshing Mint), Peppermint (Sweet Mint), Green Tea Menthol, Grape, Cherry, Chocolate, Coffee, Vanilla and V2 Cola. See Flavor Descriptions Page for more information.
V2 Cigs electronic cigarettes are 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 best quality product. Click here to view V2 Cigs batch results.
V2 Batteries are designed to offer a perfect balance between physical weight and smoking time per charge cycle. To use your V2 electronic cigarette, simply screw a flavor cartridge on to the end of the battery and puff on it like you would a normal cigarette. When you draw air through the cartridge, the heating element will automatically activate and produce inhalable vapor.
Every V2 Flavor Cartridge is filled with enough of our proprietary e-liquid to produce approximately 150 - 250 puffs (dependent upon deepness of puffs). 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 up your smoking frequency and puffing style). The battery can be fully charged in 1-2 hours with included Smart Charger.
Charge your V2 electronic cigarette anywhere with the V2 Portable Charging Case. It's like having an electrical outlet in your pocket. This sleek Portable Charging Case is light and easy to carry, and will charge one electronic cigarette battery up to 4 times before it needs to be plugged into a wall outlet. The V2 Portable Charging Case has space to carry 1 Standard or Shorty V2 battery and 2 Flavor Cartridges. This case will not work with V2 XL batteries. Color options include Graphite, Stainless Steel and White.
Standard PCC output: DC 4.2 V, 200 mA with battery capacity of 1200 mAh
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.
It’s important to find the right combination of flavors and strengths when you first begin using electronic cigarettes. We suggest starting with a low strength or a mix of strengths, depending on your cigarette usage. Many people find the highest strength cartridges to be too strong. The best way to try multiple flavors is with a V2 Sampler Kit.
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.

I was a Blu user before I purchased from V2. The only thing I liked about the blu was the charging case, so when I found out V2 had one I was sold! The entire set is awesome!! I love how many options there are for batteries and cartridges. The charging case works wonderfully! I would definitely recommend this to my friends!

I started out with the Blu ecig and was not very impressed! Poor battery life and had to have the charge case replaced. Cartridges did not have the nicotine strength that I liked either. I tried a V2 disposable bought at a local store and it blew me away! The amount of vapor, the nicotine strength, and battery life of the disposable lasted almost 5 days! I went to the V2 website to see what they offered and was amazed at the selection of products available. I decided to buy the standard starter and it was delivered 3 days later to my door. I also purchased an EX battery to go along with it. I am so pleased with everything and must admit I was not expecting that to be the case here. Both batteries were already fully charged and so was the charging case, so I was ready to hit the ground running! I use the EX battery in my computer room and have smoked the equivalent (for me anyway)about 2 packs and the battery is still going strong. The standard batteries are lasting up to 3 times longer than Blu and the 2.4% nicotine V2 Red cartridge lasts twice as long (if not longer) than Blu cartridges. I am very pleased
with this product and definitely recommend it
to anyone wanting to switch to ecigs!!!

When I decided to opt for an e-cig, I wasn't sure which beginner kit would work best for me. I am so happy I chose this one! It comes with two batteries, so I always have one charged and ready to go. Of course, it has the standard wall charger which can also be used on a USB port. What I like the best with this kit is the portable charging case. That has saved me a few times from having a dead battery. It's also a hard case, so it protects the battery nicely. There's room for a battery and two cartomizers, so it holds what I need for a full day.
This is an excellent, middle choice for a starter's kit. It offers exactly what I need to make the e-cig switch, without having too many options I don't need or too few options.
Definitely worth the price!

"My wife uses an e-cig, a complicated get-up with liquid and it has to be prepped perfectly and in exactly the right order to get it to work right, one with a whole bunch of expensive gadgets - bottles with needle tips and batteries you have to make sure are turned on or off when charging, looking almost like drug paraphernalia. She tried to get me to use one of hers but I filled the first one wrong and ruined the clear part, the second one I burned the wick by not refilling it at the right time. There's no way I'm going to use any contraption I can't figure out. I was totally turned off at the idea of using an e-cig again until I tried my buddy's V2 cig last month when we were stuck on the train to a weekend convention. It tasted just like my regular red-box Marb's and looks just like a normal cigarette. It saves me having to remember where I put my lighter, and it's really simple to operate - fool-proof cartridges for nicotine instead of messy liquid, and easy screw-on chargers that I only have to use when the battery tells me it's time to recharge. I bought the starter kit with the car charger and the portable charging pack I keep in my briefcase, so I can charge my batteries without having to bring along my wall-charger when I pack for short business trips or when I'm away from my car in meetings and presentations all day. (I used to smoke like a fiend, so keeping my batteries juiced up is crucial.)
My costs for smoking have gone down to almost nothing, since I really notice the harshness and stink of cigarettes when I smoke a cigarette (rarely) anymore. I was so frustrated by my lack of options when it came to smoking alternatives, that now I can't say enough about my V2 cigs - I even got my wife borrowing my cigs sometimes when she's not sucking her fruity contraption. Thanks to V2, I can use an e-cig now, too."

My thoughts on this product is quite simple really. I think v2 cigs vaper quality is amazing and the long battery life is even better. I went to a couple other brands before trying v2 and I didnt like how all the batteries died really guick. I only had one miner mix up with it. But all in all v2 is definitely the best for me.

I'm sure other people here have either purchased a competing product ("competing" is a very generous description of the other ecig makers in this market) or are considering it.
The only reason, as far as I'm concerned, to buy a kit from another company is that it'll only drive home how utterly fantastic V2 is.
I started with disposables from three other brands and then moved on to kits.
The other two (well known) kits I've purchases were acceptable, which I thought was sufficient, which turns out to be very wrong.
One of the Other Kits I ordered was from a company whose name begins with the letter "B" and ends with the letters "lu" (I don't want to point fingers here). I ordered that other kit *two days* before the V2 kit, but the V2 kit order was processed and shipped while the other order was still "Pending Fulfillment". They both arrived at the same time, which gave me the opportunity to unbox them side-by-side and then test them together.
I wish I'd known. I would've turned the other kit around with a "Return to Sender". However, it's not a complete loss since I'm not sitting around wondering if I bought the right one. The differend between the other kits and the one from V2 is so pronounced that I wonder why the others even bother to exist.
The V2 batteries are only slightly more powerful (in terms of output), but that "slight" difference turns into a huge one when you're actually using the product.
I understand that there are different camps and that some vapers insist on manual batteries, but, for me, the ease of automatics is too appealing, and if you're going to become part of the automatic camp, the advantage of the V2, while not strikingly different on paper, *absolutely makes the difference*.
Then there are the flavors. The choices for the V2 (especially considering you can order custom flavors) are both more numerous and *so much better*. The carts are shipped in blister packs and capped at both ends, and, again, *it absolutely makes the difference*.
I ordred the various tobacco flavors with nicotine to satisfy that interest, then ordered several non-tobacco flavors with zero nicotine so I can sit around and vape for ludicrously long periods of time whenever I feel like it.
I had a couple very minor problems with the V2 kit, and that gave me the chance to try out the customer service. This is yet another area where V2 has been so much better that I almost don't understand *how* they can be this much better. I'd heard good things about V2, but I was still prepared for a wrestling match because, in my experience, dealing with customer service is rarely pleasant. This time, the operator ("Amanda") addressed my concerns so quickly that I almost felt like I should repeat myself. It felt like I had braced for a car crash that never came. She simply acknowledged my concern, took care of it, and then we chatted for a moment about the product (flavors and strengths). It felt like I was in a locally run shop where people say "Hello" and "please" and "thank you" and smile, but it was all done within a chat window.
I had a bigger issue with one of the kits I purchased from a competitor (the one whose name begins with a "B" and ends with "lu" - I'm still not pointing fingers), and they were 1) Slow to respond, 2) ***holes.
Overall, V2 has been outstanding, on its own and compared to other brands, in all possible ways: Shopping, shipping, unboxing, enjoying, and customer-supporting (I know "customer-supporting" isn't a word, but I felt it would be more aesthetically pleasing to make a present-participle of it so it would fit right in with the others).
I don't review things, but I felt compelled to on this occasion because it's rare to find a company that provides excellent everything the way V2 does.

I was a smoker for nearly 10 years through my early 20's....I finally quit when I started trying to get pregnant. A few years later I got weak and fell right back into my habit for a few weeks and hated myself for it...plus I felt nauseous when I smoked since it was literally poison! My mom turned me onto the idea of an electronic cigarette since they're vapor and were becoming more popular. I absolutly loved them and the options available for flavors etc. I'm so glad I found out about e cigs for so many reasons!

I turned 30 this year and have been smoking since I was 12. My family has been harping on me to quit smoking forever and have tried several times, somewhat successfully, but always seem to find myself with a cig in my hands again. The patch sucks and the gums are HORRIBLE! I just like smoking! With the V2 ecig I have quit smoking completely in just a few days and don't think I will ever go back to smoking! These things are great! I got the standard size batteries but if you are like me and want something as close to a cig as possible go with the shorty's with the automatic draw. I got an auto and manual to try both and the manual is good but I hate having to push the button all the time, the auto is great! Also if you are wanting to carry the ecigs in the charging case then you have to get the shorty's as the standards are just a tad to big to fit, slightly disappointed with that but oh well, you live and you learn. I'm gonna see if V2 will exchange my standards for the short's but I won't hold it against them if they don't. There customer service has been great and the standard delivery got my ecigs here in 4 days over the 4th of July holiday!

Just about everything about this Ecig is awesome. Battery lasts forever and without a decrease in vapor, the case also holds charge for days and days, and it's super lightweight making it feel "real" like a analog cig. I would have never thought it would allow me to quit nasty cancerous tobacco yet it's been a month without a single one. I smoked for 5 years, 1 to 2 packs a day yet I switched completely over to the v2 without fail and now will never return to tobacco! I get all I need from the v2 plus can switch my flavor every time I smoke if I wish. I don't get why analog cigs are even used anymore! Plus it now cost me less then half my monthly cig costs. $5 a pack times 30 days, $150, $2 dollar cartridge times 30 days, $60, can't argue with that math! And that's even if I was only doing a pack a day. The cartridges last me all day and I puff on it continuously. Also I fill my EX clearomizer which, with a 30ml bottle, saves me even more.
If I had to choose something I'd change about it, I would increase the case size by 1/4 of an inch so a battery with a cartomizer could fit without having to be separated. Other then that it's awesome!!!!!

I initially tried vaping with a free trial offer from another company. They were okay, but didn't produce enough vape, so I did a lengthy search, and found that V2's were the top rated e-cigs on the market. My main criteria, for a e-cig, was a refillable cartridge, second was a rechargeable portable power case. The V2's had both. The free kit batteries, that I received, also fit the V2 blanks, so now I have back up batteries. Although not as powerful as the V2's, they still work well with the cart's. I also ordered the V2 ex blanks, which are so easy to fill, and give an excellent hit. They are a must have for those who want to use the E-liquid. And it's great to be able to use any brand of E-liquid you want with the V2 blanks.!!
All in all, I enjoy the V2's more than analog cigarettes, and they give a better nicotine hit plus my lungs don't hurt. Quit smoking and start vaping.
