So we were contacted by the team over at V2Cigs and asked whether we wanted to try out their Pro series 3 pen to see what we thought.
The V2 Pro Series 3 Vaporizer 3-in-1 Vape Pen is ideal for those who are completely new to vaporizing, as well as seasoned veterans and I was already thinking of reviewing this product.
So our automatic response was ‘Hell yeah. Send it over for testing.’
As a result, it came in the mail and we put our heads down for a week’s solid testing
What we were expecting was a run-of-the-mill $70 vape pen what we got was something more – a lot more.
So without further ado – here is a V2 Pro Series 3 Vaporizer 3-in-1 Vape Pen review, with focus on the pros and cons of this product.
What we liked
The first thing you notice about the V2 Pro series 3 is its quality of construction and its sleek styling. This is a hardy pen constructed with a durable steel surface.
You get 3 choices in color: blue, black or steel all of which add to the chic aesthetic of this pen
The second thing you’ll notice about the Series 3 is its size, which is similar to a marker pen (measuring about 5.60 inches in height, and 0.60 inches in diameter).
This compact vaporizer pen is easy to transport with you when you are on the go, and easily fits into a small bag or travel case.
Unlike some bulkier products, you’ll be able to keep the V2 Pro Series 3 in your pocket. And unlike some similar sized pens you don’t get the sense that it is going to break anytime soon.
This is a 3-in-1 pen although the wax cartridge has not been developed yet but I was assured that it is coming soon. But we were very pleased with the results that came from testing the liquid and loose leaf cartridges.
The cartridge chamber itself is magnetic which we loved ; inserting and removing the cartridges was a breeze. It has to be said we thought this was a brilliant innovation.
The V2 Pro is equipped with smart technology, able to recognize each type of cartridge. Once the cartridge is placed in the chamber the V2 automatically heats up to the optimal temperature for whatever type of cartridge you happen to be using.
With replaceable cartridges for e-liquids, the item is easy to use and provides excellent value-for-money.
An e-liquid cartridge comes with the product, which provides a generous 800 puffs (on average), and this is available in a wide range of different flavors.
If you have been smoking regular cigarettes for a prolonged period of time, and are making the switch to an e-cigarette brand, you might want to opt for the traditional tobacco flavor which replicates the taste and flavor of conventional brands that you may have used in the past.
E-liquids are easy to replace and install in the device, it truly was a painless process.
And we got clouds of vapour when we tested. Lots of pens make this claim but the V2 Pro backs up this claim for real.
We tested the loose leaf cartridge pretty extensively as well. What was cool was once the cartridge was placed into the chamber the whole action of the Series 3 was altered.
To use it we held the button down for 3 seconds to activate the conductive heater and the LED system glowed through 3 stages from red to orange to green which was the optimal temperature to vape the loose leaf.
The whole process took around 30 seconds.
We got around 3 good hits from the chamber.
We have to say that this was a trouble-free experience when compared to other loose leaf products. We do advise however to make sure your herb is ground pretty finely for optimal results
Battery life and charging options
The V2 Pro Series 3 has a long-lasting and durable battery, and because it utilizes ‘pass through’ technology, you’ll be able to draw on the device when it’s being charged.
There are wall chargers and car chargers which can be purchased separately (providing you with greater flexibility when charging your device when away from home), although a USB charging cable is provided with the product – ideal for charging the V2 Pro Series 3 using your computer or laptop.
A full instructional guide is provided, with all the information you need when using the product for the first time.
What we didn’t like.
We pretty much fell in love with the V2 Pro Series 3 but there were a couple of things we felt held it back from a 5 star rating – but they are pretty minor things.
Firstly the cartridges will not be interchangeable for the upcoming Series 7 and Series 9 devices. So if you want to upgrade in the future there’s a little additional cost. However, even if you do upgrade the Series 3 would be a great standby model for emergencies.
The loose leaf cartridge is a little small but again this is a minor thing to consider as the vaping quality is superior.
So what do we think?
We like it – we really like it.
So much so that we are replacing the G-Pen with it as our recommended vape pen under $100.
The V2 Pro Series 3 is a great vaporizer pen with a wealth of features. The quality alone for the price you pay is incredible.
Although additional accessories may be needed (like a wall adapter), the battery is quick to charge (less than 2 hours with the USB cable) and overall it’s a very easy pen to use.
A six month warranty provides you with the peace of mind that you need when using a product like this.
We never give a 5 star rating but believe us when we say that this is a cracking 4.5 star rated pen.
