The V2 Cigs Series 7 Vaporizer is one of our top recommendations for a vape device because it’s the first true 3-in-1 product on the market that works. The 3 mediums that the series 7 from V2 allows you to vape are e-liquids, concentrates, and dry herbs. The device has technology built in to know which cartridge is in the unit in attached and adjusts the heating method automatically.
V2 also offers a series 3 model that is much smaller and not as capable as the series 7 so that is why we are going direct to the series 7 for our review. It is definitely worth the extra money for the added benefits of variable voltage and temperature settings that you don’t get with the series 3. It also has much higher capacities on the cartridges compared to the series 3.
The device comes in 3 color options being Black, Blue, and Silver. Our favorite is the blue so that’s the one we chose to get ourselves. The kit itself includes the vaporizer body, a liquid cartridge, loose leaf cartridge, a USB charger, a wall adapter, and a pick and brush tool for cleaning. You get all this at the starting price of $169.99. We however also purchased the wax cartridge for an additional $29.99 to take advantage of all 3 mediums and truly test the unit out with the full capabilities.
Every connection on the device is done through magnets. So to place cartridges in and remove them you simply slide or drop them in to exchange them. The charger is also connected through a magnet so you don’t ever have it get stuck on something as it will break free. You also don’t need to worry about causing damage to the threads. The body of the device has a main button about 1/3 down from the top that is used to control it and lock/unlock the device. You then have 3 LED lights below that button in crescent shapes to indicate voltage settings for e-liquid and wax and temperature setting for loose leaf materials.
The first cartridge we used was the e-liquid cartridge. When you drop the cartridge in, the magnets let the device know which one it is and adjust the settings to voltage and in the right range for that medium. The device does that for all 3 of the cartridges so we’ll only mention that once. The e-liquid cartridge itself holds 2.5ml of liquid. It is set to operate at 3.7, 4.2, and 4.7 volts based on how you adjust it. All 3 LED indicators will be lit up to indicate 4.7 volts. We used a liquid incense in the device to see how well it worked. The vapor production was decent and on par with the amount of smoke you would get smoking traditional loose leaf products. This isn’t a cloud making device by any stretch of the imagination, but it is more than adequate to let you inhale as much as you need. It operates with holding the button each time you draw in this mode and is only active while the button is depressed. The throat hit was reasonably strong but not overpowering on the highest setting for us. So the device definitely works well for liquids as we expected since V2 got its name by becoming one of the largest e-cigarette companies in 2013.
The main cartridge we used this device for was the loose leaf cartridge. The unit heats up continuously and it runs for 2 minutes on a cycle. We often packed the unit tighter and ran it at the highest temperature twice in a row and got the perfect use of the buds inside the unit and a great feeling after for two people. The second round brings you clouds of vapor the entire time where as it builds up during the first round. There is an illuminating ring on the device that indicates in green when it is ready to start using. The bowl space on this unit is also quite good and comparable to the pax units. The oven chamber measures 1300mm3. As mentioned above, the heating is done through conduction making it stay on and it can reach temperatures of 200 degrees Celsius, 215 degrees Celsius, and 225 degrees Celsius. They say you can get 20 sessions per charge and we found it was pretty close to that but it did depend on the temperature settings. When we used it in the higher temperature setting, we lost a session or two on average.
The last cartridge we used was the one that didn’t come with the kit but we ordered with it, the wax cartridge. This one has one temperature setting of 600 degrees Celsius and you can adjust the wattage though on it. While V2 calls it the wax cartridge, you don’t need to use just waxes. It also works with gels and similar other concentrates. So you truly can vape all types of products with this single device. With wax you don’t need as much in the unit to vape and reach your goal. So the size that is in the cartridge is more than enough for you and friends to share one single load on the device. The unit heats up perfectly and you get rich clouds full of great taste with the concentrates. All of the cartridges are easy to clean, but this one obviously is the hardest of the three because of the substance you are putting in. Luckily the tools included help with that having the pick tool but you might want to but the V2 Pro Cleaning Kit as well since it has some extra items including tweezers and alcohol pads.
Overall this device is hands down one of the best on the market for those looking for flexibility. It might not be the top of the line at any one category but is above average in every category. A huge side benefit to this device is that you can travel with it by simply throwing away the cartridge and buying a new one so you don’t have to cross state lines with contraband where it isn’t legal. The problem with many devices is that the bowl is built in to the entire unit and resin runs through it. The cartridge is the only place substances come into contact with the device so you don’t have to worry about that. You will not have any issue traveling. At the price point too, this is a great deal when compared to devices that can do single functions, let alone what it would cost you to buy devices that could do all 3. So hurry up and buy one today.
