V2’s batteries are great for convenience and size. They really keep the feel of smoking an actual cigarette. There are a couple differences in size and features with all of V2’s lines of batteries.
First there is the Classic line that V2 has been offering for awhile that come in three different sizes shorty, standard, and long. The shorty is the smallest battery that V2 offers, being the size of a cigarette with cartridge attached. I think most people are used to seeing the standard size which is a little bit longer than an actual cigarette. While the long would be more the length of a 100 cigarette. They each will hold a difference in charge. The Long holding the longest charge. If the length of an e-cig doesn’t bother you you will get the longest lasting most bang for your buck with the Long battery.
Once you have chosen your length next you will need to decide if you want it to be automatic (turns on when it senses a drag) or the manual which has a small button on the side to activate the e-cig. The automatic is most like smoking a cigarette which doesn’t need a button, and most people prefer the automatic batteries. The manual battery activates when you depress the button on the side and has its own advantages. I myself like to prime the e-cig before I start to draw the vapor out, letting the heating element reach a good temperature first. I like a strong throat hit when I vape and the manual seemed to give a little more control over when the power was on or off.
Recently V2 has came out with a new battery called the Ex-series battery. It comes in one size and has some refinements that are not in the Classic Line of batteries. The Ex battery comes with a cartridge sleeve that slides over the flavor cartridge giving a nice clean look to your e-cig. You have the option of 5 different designs that you can choose from Brushed Steel, Carbon Fiber, Scarlet Metallic, Royale and Bloom. Unlike the Classic line the tip does not light up when activated. There are five small LED’s on the side of the tip that light up when activated that have the added convenience of showing you how much charge you have left in your battery. This can be a life saver and keep you from running out of power while you are out and about.
First place for me goes to the new Ex battery with its great charge, sleek look, and being able to tell how much charge you have is a life saver. Second place is the Long manual giving me more control and charge per battery. But I do have to take the added precaution of carrying two with me so I don’t run out of charge at an inconvenient time.
All there batteries are quality tested and I have never had a problem with any of them. All are solidly made and have lasted me for years with great performance. V2 offers 30 day money back guarantee on all its products and there customer support is the best in the business.
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: 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.
