With nearly 800,000 estimated hits to their website in May alone, V2 Cigs is the most popular e-cigarette company in the world in terms of Web traffic. In fact, in a recent report that I compiled for eCig One on the current state of the e-cigarette industry, I found that V2 received more than 61 percent of all Web traffic out of 73 companies sampled in May. That’s an absolutely enormous lead, but in an industry that moves as quickly as this one, no company can afford to sit on its laurels.
This year, V2 announced a number of major changes to its business, including new starter kits, some incredibly slick new boxes and — most important from a performance and customer experience standpoint — greatly improved packaging for refill cartridges. Under the old system, cartridges were plugged on both ends with silicone stoppers and placed in a card stock box. I thought that was an acceptable way of packaging pre-filled cartomizers until I wrote my Green Smoke review and discovered how fresh a cartomizer can taste when it’s sealed in foil. Beginning this year, V2 has taken that same step forward and now uses foil — in addition to the silicone stoppers — to keep its cartomizers fresh. Having tasted V2′s cartomizers under both packaging systems, I can tell you there’s no comparison. If you’re a V2 customer, you’re never going to get a stale cartomizer again.
What’s even more interesting is the fact that each pack of cartomizers now has a lot number printed on the box. Any time you like, you can go to the V2 website, type the lot number from your pack of cartomizers in a field and instantly view a PDF scan of the lab quality report for that e-liquid shipment. I was completely floored when I discovered that no feature; nobody else in the e-cigarette industry is doing this.
So, V2 Cigs Menthol is the first pack of cartomizers that I’ll be reviewing from the new V2. What we have here is a “Hint of Mint” type flavor, with tobacco and menthol in the foreground and a bit of peppermint in the background to leave a pleasant minty aftertaste on the tongue. I tasted this e-liquid before the packaging change and found it to be poor both in terms of vapor production and in flavor. However, the new foil seal has changed everything. Not only is the vapor production vastly improved, but I’m quite enjoying the peppermint flavor. I’m also not getting the chemical notes I tasted before.
If you’re already a V2 customer or simply looking for a menthol refill cartridge for your KR-808-D1 e-cigarette, I’d encourage you to give V2 Cigs Menthol a try. The peppermint flavor hits the spot when you’re looking for something refreshing without the sweetness of many minty e-liquids, and the quantity of menthol is quite a bit higher than what I’ve detected in many pre-filled cartomizers.
