V2 Pro Series 3 Vaporizer Review


V2 Pro Series 3 Vaporizer Review and Tutorial ~10:00

The V2 Pro Series 3 vaporizer is one of the only portable vape pens that can actually vape dry herbs without combustion. It’s made by the company V2 and the Series 3 is the first in the line of future dry herb vaporizers from them. I also have a review for the V2 Pro Series 7 which came out at bit after the Series 3.

The Series 3 is easy to use, easily and conveniently conceals into pockets and heats up quickly for fast sessions on the go.

It uses swappable cartridges for loose leaf, concentrates and e-liquids. The design and build quality is one of the best for a vape pen, it feels surprisingly nice and extremely smooth in your hand or pocket.

The Series 3 retails for only $49.99 but you’ll have to pick up the loose leaf cartridge for $19.99 if you wanted to be able to vape dry herbs. Total with the loose leaf cartridge is only $59.98 which still comes in cheaper than the MFLB and one of the cheapest vaporizers you can buy that will actually vape dry herbs.

V2 Pro Series 3 Size/Portabitliy

The size of the V2Pro Series 3 is similar to that of a thing sharpie permanent marker. It’s a bit taller than most portable vaporizers but the sleekness allows you to store it anywhere. It first perfect in my pocket and I can easily store the extra cartridges in my jean pocket as well.

The Series 3 is a little under 5.63 inches tall and about .59 inches in diameter (a little smaller than the size of a dime.) It only weighs about 50 grams which is one of the lightest pens on the market.

V2 Series 3 Heating and Temp Settings

For dry herb, the Series 3 uses conduction heating with a temp range from 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature is regulated based on a number of things to include your herbs, grind time and draw speed. The typical heat up time ranges from 15-30 seconds which is excellent. Market average is 40+ for portable vaporizers.

The unit does have an automatic shut-off timer at 2 minutes so if you aren’t quite finished with your session, hold down the button again for 3 seconds to heat it back up. I do wish the auto-shutoff was set to 3 or 4 minutes instead of two, but its a minor nitpick.

Series 3 Pro Chambers and Cartridges

The Series 3 comes with the E-Liquid Cartridge which holds 1.6ml and can get up to 800 puffs per liquid fill based on two second puffs. If you want the option to vape dry herbs with your Series 3 then you’ll need to pick up the Loose Leaf Cartridge for $19.99.

The Loose Leaf holds about .1 grams and this will usually last me for three of the 2-minute sessions. This is the perfect amount for one person and could work for two but it’s not going to get you both torn up. The AVB the Series 3 produces is surprisingly uniform in dark brown color without needing to stir the oven at all.

V2 Pro S3 Battery and Charging

The series 3 uses a 650mAh battery which gives me about 12 of the 2-minute sessions with the dry herb cartridge (4 oven fills). For the size of this thing, it has very good battery life. The v2 also has pass-through charging, so you can use the unit while it is plugged in. It comes with a USB Charging cable which completely recharges the device from dead in 2 hours. You can also pick up optional wall and car chargers for $10 each.

Accessories

Only the E-Liquid cartridge is included in the $49.99 price tag. You’ll need to pick up the Loose Leaf Cartridge for $19.99 if you wanted to be able to vape dry herbs and they have the Wax/Concentrate Cartridge for $19.99 as well. You can pick up extra e-liquid cartridges for $6.99.

When I received my V2 it only came with one dry herb cartridge and I quickly realized how convenient it would be to have an extra or two. I will be ordering a few more so I can grind/pack ahead of time, and just swap them out on the fly.

 V2Pro Series 3 Vaporizer USB Charging Cable

The ‘smart cartridges’ are designed extremely well and the device automatically recognizes which cartridge you put in. Just swap in the cartridge and either hold down the button for 3 seconds for the Loose Leaf or just press the button to get instant vapor from the E-Liquid. The cartridges are also magnetized which really makes the cartridges easy to swap in and out.

V2 Warranty Information

The V2 Pro Series 3 comes with a 6 month warranty covering the device from defects in materials and workmanship. The cartridges, however, are not covered under the warranty.

V2 Pro Series 3 Review Summary

Overall, if you’re looking for an all-in-one portable vaporizer pen that actually vapes dry herbs, then the V2Pro Series 3 is for you. I really love the magnetic cartridges, I can easily swap the Loose Leaf cartridge to the E-Liquid cartridge and blow out a strong smelling cloud to cover the dry herb smell. The vapor produced from the E-Liquid cartridge is very good.

The vapor quality from the dry herb cartridge isn’t the best, but it’s not bad either. It produces decent flavor but fairly light vapor density. The big thing is that this is one of the few true pen sized vaporizers that actually vaporizes and doesn’t combust your herbs.

You can click here to buy the V2 Pro Series 3 direct from the manufacturer. They have fast/free/discreet shipping and also ensure you get the manufacturer warranty.

Thanks for checking out my V2 Pro series 3 vaporizer review and feel free to leave any comments/questions below.

If you aren’t quite sold on the V2 Pro Series 3 I recommend checking out the Haze V3 which is also a 3-in-1/all-in-one portable vaporizer. It’s bigger and runs $249 but gives you the option of multiple temp ranges and a dual bowl system.

Introduction

Hey guys buzz here with vaporizerwizard.com. Today I’ll be going over the V2 Pro Series 3 which is the only vape pen to successfully vape dry herbs to date. It’s a 3-in-1 or all-in-one vape pen made by the very successful e-cig company, V2. It can successfully vape dry herbs, e-liquids and wax or concentrates. The wax cartridge was delayed a bit until this Winter, I will add an annotation here and an update to the review on my site when it comes out.The Series 3 uses these magnetic smart cartridges that easily swap in and out. Each cartridge is designed to be automatically recognized by the pen and select the appropriate temps for each of the materials.

The V2 Pro series 3 retails for $69.99 which only comes with the E-liquid cartridge. So remember if you want the option to vape dry herbs, you’ll have to pick up the loose-leaf cartridge for $24.99. So, total for the V2 Pro series 3 is only $94.98 which is one of the cheapest portable vaporizers that I have tested and can recommend.

You can click the link below in the about section to get the current price and a full review on my website. In this video I’ll go over the features and show you how to use it. I’ll do a quick demo session for both the e-liquid and dry herb cartridges. I’ll break down my pros and cons for the v2 and then suggest the best place to pick one up.

Features

Ok guys so here is the V2 Pro Series 3. It comes with the pen itself, the e-liquid cartridge and a USB charging cable. Make sure that you add the loose-leaf cartridge to your order if you want the option to vape dry herbs.

As far as size, the Series 3 is a little taller than the average portable vaporizer. It’s about the same height as the Firefly but the overall diameter is a bit smaller than the size of a dime. So it fits perfect it my jeans when im out and in my robe when im lounging at home. It’s very light so I barely notice it in my pocket and can be easily concealed in a purse or handbag.

The Series 3 is revolutionary because it actually vapes dry herbs! I know I mentioned it earlier but I’ve had at least 10 different vape pen manufacturers tell me their pens can vape dry herbs and they all failed. I’m not going to brag about the vapor quality because it’s nowhere near portable models like the Firefly or Crafty but it’s also a fraction of the price.

How to use/Tutorial

The Series 3 uses these magnetic smart cartridges which can easily swap in and out depending on what materials you want to vape. So let’s talk about each of the cartridges and how to use them. The dry herb cartridge uses a stainless steel bowl and a mouthpiece with built in screen that removes to load or unload the bowl. I’ve found the chamber holds about .1 grams of dry herb. So once you have the chamber packed, just re-attach the mouthpiece and lock in cartridge. The magnets make it super easy to lock it and it has this little slot to secure it into place. To turn the unit on, press the button 3 times. With the dry herb cartridge, you’ll just hold down the button for 3 seconds and it will start to heat up. The red at the bottom means it’s just starting to heat up, then it will turn yellow, and then turn green when it’s completely heated. From here you just take your pulls. I aim for slow 10-15 second draws and then repeat until the hits become less dense and not as flavorful. Then when you are finished with the dry herb cartridge you can either hit the button 3 times to turn it off, or if you’re going to be using the e-liquid cartridge after, you just swap the cartridges.

With the E-liquid cartridge, you just press down and hold it until you get the desired amount of vapor. I used to smoke cigarettes back in the marines, but kicked the habit, so I just use the 0-mg nicotine e-liquids. I have been trying out a skittles flavor for the last couple of days and its pretty good. I really like the vapor that you can produce from the V2 Pro. I’ve never owned a pen that I actually like, so I’ve just been walking around the house with this thing 24/7 puffing on it. It’s pretty fun. Anyways, same thing to turn the unit off, just press down on the button 3 times. I recommend turning it off when not is use because if the button gets pressed somehow in your pocket or something, it will continue to vape the e-liquid in the cartridge and possibly get too hot.

Battery Life/Charging

Ok so let’s move on to the battery life and the charger. The Series 3 has pretty decent battery life for the size. I’ve been able to walk around all day hitting the e-liquid cartridge without it dying on me. Now it will die faster if you’re just going to be using it for dry herbs because it stays on longer and requires more battery to heat the chamber. It also has an automatic shutoff timer that turns the heater off after two minutes, so I have to turn it back on a couple times during my sessions. While using the dry herb cartridge, I was able to get about 4-5 bowls before the battery died. It starts to get a little weak towards the end of the 5th bowl.
The Series 3 comes with a USB charging cable which is also magnetized and easily connects to the unit. Just attach it to the bottom of the unit and then plug it in to your computer, laptop, car or whatever. V2 also offers the wall charger and car chargers for 10 bucks each. Luckily I had extra USB wall chargers, and my car has a USB plug. The bottom will glow green when the unit is completely charged which I’ve found to take about two hour from fully dead.

Vape Session

So now that we’ve gone over the features and how to use the V2, let’s jump into the vape session. The first thing I’ll do is take a couple puffs with the E-liquid cartridge so you can get a good idea of the vapor produced and how easy it is to use. I have mine loaded up with some “skittles” flavored 0MG nicotine. This liquid is a 50/50 VG/PG mix. Press the button 3 times to turn the unit on and just hold down the button to start getting vapor. I usually hold down for about 3-5 seconds which produces plenty of vapor. Make sure and turn it back off when you’re done because you can accidently hit the button in your pocket which is no Bueno.

Now let’s use the loose-leaf cartridge. Remove the E-Liquid cartridge from the unit and attach the dry herb cartridge. From here just press the button 3 times and the unit is now on but it’s not heating. To start the heating, hold down the button for 3 seconds. Wait for the unit to heat up and you’re ready to go. Like I mentioned earlier, slow 10- 15 second draws seem to work the best for me. The vapor taste isn’t the best but I can produce decent clouds when packed correctly and one bowl is enough to medicate 1-2 people. You’ll notice the bowl is done when the hits become less dense and your herbs are a dark brown color.

Pros

Let’s go ahead and break down the pros and cons. The first pro would be the fact that it’s a vape pen and it can actually vape dry herbs without combusting. I’m excited to see where the vape pen market will go. Second would be the ease of use. Everything is controlled via one button. No techniques or learning curves, just load it and use it. Next would be the magnetic smart cartridges. Such a simple idea but it really makes swapping in and out the cartridges extremely easy. They are also automatically recognized by the pen so the correct temp settings are selected for you. The next pro would be the USB charging system. The charging adapter is also magnetized so it easily attaches to the bottom and can be charged practically anywhere. Lastly, the price, you can’t find another quality all in one vaporizer anywhere near this price that can actually vape dry herbs. The only other all in one I recommend is the haze, and it’s a big jump up to $250.

Cons

Moving on to the cons. The chamber is pretty small so it won’t be the best vape for groups but it’s perfect for 1-2 people. The battery life is another con but the unit is so small it can’t really hold a large battery. I also don’t really like the 2 minute auto shut off timer. I have to turn the unit back on a couple times during my session which isn’t a huge deal but 5-6 minutes would have been a lot better. Lastly, the smooth design of the pen makes it pretty easy to roll off desks, dashboards, counters, etc, so just watch out for that.

Summary

Overall I’m extremely impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of the series 3, especially for the price. I like the feel, the button, and everything fits together nicely with the magnetic cartridges. If you are in the market for a portable vape pen that can vape your dry herbs, e-liquids and your wax/concentrates then you can’t go wrong with the V2 Pro Series 3.

    Hey Buzz,

    First andforemost I would like to thank you for making these reviews. I am a vape newbie. So far I like the V2, Pax and Crafty.

    Which one would be a good starter vape? Also, which of these vapes give off the least amount of smell? I will be using my vape in the car, on the move in the city and other public places so I would definitely want to be as stealthy as possible.

    Thank you

    • Buzz Danklin says: January 8, 2015 at 3:03 pm

      Hey Tre,

      Thanks for the support man, I’m glad the videos are helping you out.

      As far as the best starter vape, I would have to go with the Crafty (price not being a factor). The only downside is that it takes a little over two minutes to heat up which is a lot slower than the Pax and V2. I say the Crafty because it’s stupid easy to use and will work no matter how you pack it. It requires very little cleaning/maintenance and the convenience of the APP with your smartphone is super nice. This will be the easiest portable vaporizer for you to use especially just starting out.

      The V2 Pro Series 3 is also a great starter vape because it’s under $100 and it can actually vape dry herbs. I just know that you will be much more satisfied with the vapor quality and consistency of the Crafty.

      Now if you need absolute portability and discretion then you might want to go with the Pax. It’s still my highest rated unit for portability even though it’s been out for years now.

      Basically it comes down to preference man. I really like the Crafty and I know you will too.

    Hey Wizard,
    Why havent you made a YouTube video review of this Haze yet?
    Your video reviews are so helpful.
    Got the V2Pro series 3 but too hard for me to draw from, burns my herbs too fast and have a bad battery.
    I just ordered the Haze and plan to return the V2.
    Hope the Haze works out better for me.

        I ordered their V2 Pro Series 3 and loose leaf cartridge back on February 6th of this year. They shipped me the basic unit without the loose leaf cartridge because apparently it was on backorder. No mention of this on the paperwork shipped with my product. The only indication of anything was them using a blue highlighter over the loose leaf cartridge listed on my packing list. When I called and waited 20 minutes to talk to someone they told me it was on backorder (because notifying me with what they shipped would have been too hard) for 15 business days. In case you’re wondering what 15 business days is it’s 3 weeks. But 15 business days sounds a lot sooner right? Well here we are after 20+ business days (over a month now) and I still don’t have the cartridge. This is my first experience with this company and it will be my last.

          Oh and when I called just now to find out when I would receive my cartridge I got the vague response of “another week or two.” Whatever that means. And when I complained about how I have been treated in this whole process I was told “Wow…. Is that it?”

          On top of this, if I want a refund I have to pay for the shipping back with no refund on my original shipping charges. So just to recap. I bought this product specifically because I saw great reviews on the loose leaf cartridge. Even paid more money to have it shipped faster. Get it in the mail without any indication of a backorder except the product isn’t there. Call about it, get told it’s going to be 3 weeks. Wait 4 weeks call back and ask what’s going on. Find out that it’s going to be another “week or two.” When I asked for a refund, I was told I had to pay the shipping back and eat it. When I stated that this hasn’t been great service and that they’ve dropped the ball the whole process I get a snarky reply back. Is this really how V2Cigs wants to run their business?

          I find this rather sad because I really wanted to try this product. But I just can’t do business with a company that has 0 respect for its customers.

    Here’s the problem with this whole kit. I like the model, works well for the price. But after 5 weeks, the proprietary magnetic charging cable stopped working. The light on it no longer comes on and it doesn’t send a charge to the battery. V2 claims that there’s a warranty on this product, but their warranty department seems to be nonexistent. I was on hold with them for 57 minutes before I hung up. Their “live chat” is a broken page. Sent them an email 2 days ago with no response. Furthermore, these things seem to be nowhere in stores, so the only option is to buy a new charging cable on V2’s website for $13+S&H. Buyer beware.

    Customer Service sucks – my first order will be my last. Ordered V2Pro and the dry leaf adapter. They shipped the V@ Pro with an electronic cig and after holding for 1 hour I chatted with a dumb cust svc rep who finally told be the other part was back ordered. Yet they had no problems charging me for everything. Be aware these folks are not doing what they say!!

    Just ordered the 7 but have no clue where to buy the dry herbs or the wax. I don’t believe the wax cartridge for the 7 is out yet but I am anxious to try it. I’ve only done e-liquids and I want to try other things. If you could point me in the right direction for purchasing the wax and herbs, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the vids. They are most helpful.

    Hey! Thank you for all your reviews it definitely helps! I’m getting my first vape and I’m stuck between the pax, firefly and V2. I know the V2 is a pen but I love it’s design and it’s cheap. The firefly is heavier but great taste and cape and the Pax is discreet. So I know it all comes down to preference but if you had to choose one which would you? I’m leaning toward the V2 just because of the design but do you think it’s worth it? I’m not sure, let me know what you think! Take care =]

    Reply
    • Buzz Danklin says: March 30, 2015 at 11:33 pm

      I think you should go for the Pax2 or the Firefly personally, the Firefly has the best flavor of any portable, and the Pax2 is an all around improved Pax, with less cleaning, smaller size, lighter, better flavor, and more efficient. I have been getting some complaints about v2 customer service very recently, so I don’t know if I would fully trust it as my only vape as of right now.

        Thanks for getting back to me! Ya I emailed V2 twice, still no response. I just had a question about their battery life and cleaning but no response and its been a week. I can’t really afford anything expensive and the firefly and pax 2 are up there. I’ve been trying to find a used pax 2 but still it isn’t really available. Do you have one to sell? Otherwise I’d go with the v2 but…. again customer service seems not just bad but horrible. If you have one to sell let me know Thanks!

      I have been using V2 for a long time (+2 years). The V2 Series 3 was their major new product launch. They were plagued with problems. From battery issues at the start (not charging, lasting 10 minutes before dieing, etc). Then the Carts leaked (I only used the e-liquid carts). It was a very successful launch in terms of people ordering them. But, with the issues, they were back-ordered for a long time to replace the defective ones they had already sold.
      I had generally positive experiences with their Customer Service. I understand the “Live Chat” was not so er… positive. They ‘Community’ section of the site has a forum moderated by a CS rep named Samantha. In my opinion, she is the only reason V2 survived the series 3 launch. She is just great (no relation either :)).
      I have had no less than 10 v2 series 3 to get a reliable one. I was also one of the first people to order it. I now have 0 working of three. So, I have gone to a VaporFi Rocket in hopes they are more reliable.
      One thing regarding the V2 S3, the flavor of the vapor is not as present as it is from their older std. v2 battery and EX-Blanks which I still use constantly.
      I believe they learned a LOT from the series 3 launch and think the 7 will be a lot more reliable. I again am only using e-liquid. So, the 7 doesn’t really justify the high price.

    V2 customer service SUCKS! They MAY have good products,BUT… I say MAY have good products because it has been over a month and I haven’t received my order nor can I get a refund. If you ever need to deal with their customer service, be prepared for the run-around. They are happy to take your money without telling you the product is on back-order. Then they make it very difficult to impossible to get a refund. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE!!!

    Recently bought one of these and the series 7. My experience seems to be in the minority, but V2 actually has been very responsive and helpful. Like I said, I first bought the series 3, realized the LL cart wasn’t included, and then bought one of those. It was on back order with an expected shipping of withing 30 days, so I kept on checking back until I saw the st paddy’s day sale and decided to get the s7. I also asked if they would give me a retro-active discount on the LL cart, since it still hadn’t shipped yet, and they happily complied in the form of store credit.

    The s7 came and the first time I cleaned it, the top locking part broke. I emailed V2 CS and they told me they would send a replacement free of charge. A few days later my e-liquid cart was starting to break in the same location, so I emailed again. They sent me both replacements for free, with priority shipping. I’ve seen the problems other people have had with them, so I just wanted to share my good experience that I hope they continue to provide to everyone.

    Anyway, it vapes nicely and is very concealable. Easy enough to take anywhere, take a hit and swap out carts if anyone gets suspicous. I recommend the s7 over s3, unless discretion is your priority.

      Thanks for sharing Aaron, I have been getting almost entirely positive comments and emails about their customer service and support lately, I think they just massively overwhelmed with demand early and did not have enough support staff to keep up at first. I also prefer the Series 7, but it is larger and more expensive.

    Ive had issues with the first unit they sent me, damn charger cable broke (the magnetic portion separated) they sent me a complete replacement, two 50ml liquid, and new carts, another second charger just in case, and did it quickly. Ive had zero issues with their service. I also recommend the product.

    Its not very powerful compared to like the eleaf i stick i bought, but i also hated the power of it, and the Atlantis tank i got with it. too much air, heat, and not a huge difference in vapor less it was turned up to obscene levels, which is bad for nicotine liquids.

    The new unit seems great, V2 has some cheap manufacturing compared to other high grade companies but its not bad, just sort of mid grade, but so is the price range.

    I ordered the series 7 and received it within a week. It shipped two days after purchase and I was given 15% off because in stock items are supposed to ship next day. Maybe I was lucky. They answered everytime I called

    Has anyone tried and has comments on the dry herb loose leaf cartridge as so far I have used a lot of ground herb with very little vapour. I have 3 cartridges as first one was faulty and all are the same. Content of loose leaf is 2/3 years old but in good condition but could it be too dry? I am a newbie to this and expensive if it does not work.

      Since the chamber on the Series3 is very small (.1g or less) the material does need to be high quality to get a lot of vapor, but even if your material is not producing much vapor it will still extract everything in the load so you should get the effects. I also recommend a very fine grind which will help fit a bit more into the chamber, and it will also increase the surface area so it will vape faster and produce denser clouds.

    My interactions with V2 support have been mixed. I’ll provide the rundown, in the hopes that it will help those who are on the fence given the other stories from these comments.

    Mar 24 – ordered S3 plus vape cart(ridge)
    Mar 27 – Order shipped, vape cart on back order
    Apr 3 – vape cartridge shipped
    June 1 – Pen was starting to have issues holding a charge, but the pass thru charger made that…acceptable if not ideal. Then the wife dropped the unit, at which point, the magnetic cart holder and heating functions died. Contacted support via the messaging center on their website.
    June 3 – replacement shipped at their cost, I had to get the bad one back to them, at my cost, within 30 days or be charged for the replacement.
    June 5 – replacement S3 in hand and working great.
    July 8 – replacement pen died while my wife was using it with the oil cart. still works with loose leaf cart, but will no longer activate heating element with an oil cart in place. Sent S3 support another message, via the messaging center on their website.

    Waiting for response now. Wish me luck!

    Does anyone have an update on the quality of the pens or service as of August 2015? My e-liquid pen broke recently and i was looking for a replacement and really liked the look of these, but some of these comments are scaring me off. If anyone can tell me how they’re doing with theirs at this point it would be greatly appreciated.

    • Buzz Danklin says: August 21, 2015 at 12:12 pm

      I really don’t think these are the best pens if you are only using it for e-liquids. The cartridges seem to wear out a bit faster than normal.

      If you were going to be using it for all three materials then yea it’s worth but probably not for just one. There are better options for strictly e-liquids out there.

    In my experience, the customer service reps have been great, the problem lay in fulfillment/shipping. Despite that and outward appearance, the actual unit leaves much to be desired in my experience. Also be aware that the 6 month warranty entitles you to only ONE replacement. The replacement essentially has no warranty. If the replacement fails you’re screwed, you’re on your own.

    After 5 months of very light use, the my battery’s capacity diminished enough to not be able to heat the loose leaf cartridge, though it still worked in pass through mode. Then, while waiting for the warranty replacement to arrive, one of the springs behind one of the contacts above the battery failed so that the pin no longer made contact with the cartridge. Now the unit is completely dead and I’m still waiting for the replacement.

    When it works, it works as advertised in every way, but it probably will not do so for very long. I cannot recommend this product.

    I had very frustrating experiences with this Vape pen and my experiences at V2. I bought this vape about a year ago online from their V2’s site — bought Series 3 starter kit and a loose leaf cartridge. Within several days and one use, the loose leaf emblem broke off of the loose leaf cartridge, leaving a hole in the top part of the cartridge. Since purchasing this device a year ago, the liquid cartridge has consistently leaked into the barrel, causing it to get gunked up. For this reason, I feel wary of putting it in a pocket or a bag. I have frequently thought, maybe I should purchase a new liquid cartridge — However, based on my experience I am unlikely to invest any more money in this product. I also had issues with shipping when I purchased it — I received no shipping information for the package and when I emailed them with questions, received no response. My friend purchased one of these kits from a local tobacco store within the last two months and his unit is already indicating charging irregularities in that it immediately indicates it’s charged several minutes after plugging the device in for charging. I wouldn’t recommend this product and will generally wait to get something higher quality in the future.

    Thanks for the review! What can you say about V2PRO series 7?

    Reply
    • Buzz Danklin says: June 20, 2016 at 1:57 pm

      I have it, and I think the V2 Pro Series 7 is definitely solid if you are looking for a multi use vape. It is my favorite vape if you are looking to use all three options (dry herbs, e-liquids, and concentrates) but if you are sticking to only dry herb, or only dry herb and concentrates I do prefer other but more expensive options like the Firefly 2

    I have 2 years using the Focus on Da Vinci, but it is not working well and I’m looking for something new.
    I need for everyday medical use.
    For dry material mainly but may be liquid.
    I looked for Crafty or V2PRO series7 or G Pen Elite or Flowermate Hybrid.
    What do you think is better?

      Whats kind of budget? The Crafty is definitely the easiest to use, most free flowing, and the best vapor quality of all the ones you listed. Downside to the Crafty is the heat up time but it’s meant to be a session vaporizer. Something to sit and chill with for 10-15 minutes. The Crafty also isn’t the best for heavy daily users so if you can jump up to the Mighty, that might be your best option.

      Here’s a Mighty vs Crafty comparison as well. It’s bigger but faster heat ups, no app needed, it’s a full temp spectrum via LED display and temp buttons on the unit and it’s one of the most durable/reliable vaporizers that I’ve owned.

      Of the less than $200 vapes, I would recommend the G Pen Elite for the quicker heat ups and full temp spectrum but it doesn’t do liquids. If you want the option to do e-liquids I would go with the V2 Pro Series 3 or the Haze v3.

        According to the budget, even CRAFTY expensive, but I like to buy quality thing one time than shit several times)))
        But i can use the liquid in the Crufts?
        You do not like a 2PRO Series 7, why?

        • Buzz Danklin says: June 21, 2016 at 7:45 am

          You can use concentrates with the Crafty liquid pad, but don’t put on too much or it can drip through the pad. I do think the V2S7 is solid, its jut not great. The vapor quality with dry herb is on the hot/harsh side, and even though it has 3 temperatures, the top 2 are sort of high in my opinion so I only use the low setting. For someone looking for only a dry herb vape, there are better options, but for someone wanting to use concentrates, and e-liquids the V2S7 is pretty legit since it does them all and its not terribly expensive

    Hello,
    I’m from a country with very limited access to things such as vaporizers, so the only ones we get are the Snoop Dogg G Pen at $20 (which I know is garbage), the Snoop Dogg G Pro at $65, the V2 Series 3 at $115 (including the loose leaf cartridge) and the V2 Series 7 at $190. Which one would you recommend? Keep in mind the V2 vaporizers have warranty and the others don’t.
    Thank you very much.

    • Buzz Danklin says: August 23, 2016 at 7:26 pm

      $115 for the V2 Pro S3 isn’t bad. That’s sounds like your best option for something that can actually vape dry herbs. Have you looked at or can you get the CF or CFX by Boundless Vapes?

        I thought the G Pro could actually vape dry herbs…? Those 3 are literally my only options.

        • Chris says: August 24, 2016 at 3:50 pm

          Also, I’d only be interested in the loose leaf cartridges. Is the Series 7 worth the extra $75? I’d mostly be using it with two more people.

          • Buzz Danklin says: August 25, 2016 at 11:35 am

            Yes, larger chamber, better heat up, longer battery life. Especially if you’re going to be using it with multiple people. If it were just you i’d say go with the series 3.

        • Buzz Danklin says: August 25, 2016 at 11:34 am

          The G Pro can vape herbs, my b I was thinking of something else. The Series 3 bowl is super tiny so I would go with the v2 pro series 7. Especially if you’re going to be using it with other people. I would just be afraid of the GPro and how long it will last. It’s basically a titan 1 knock off which retails for like $25. I’m working on a review for the series 7 now but it won’t be out for a couple days. If it were my choice, the Series 7 is the one I would go with.

    Hi buzz, ive owned a Vapedynamics V1 for about a year now and was wondering if you had tried one out, not available to buy anymore but its the only portable vaporizer ive tried so have nothing to compare it to but have been pretty pleased with it. It can on occasions be a bit hit and miss as to the return you get for roughly the same amount of herb and ease of vape, but think this may be down to the way its packed or something. it has 3 temp settings but had minimal instructions with it so you find your own way i suppose i think ive pretty much got used to the technique,but a friend who still smokes a pipe cant seem to get it but other mates have enjoyed.
    His wife was impressed with mine and wanted to get him one for xmas but i told her there not avaILABLE aND THAT I WOULD DO SOME RESEARCH (sorry must of hit caps ive just vaped ;) ). then i found your sight so sounds like your the man in the know !
    Im in the Uk, did get the V1 from the states which was great but is a pain if you need accessories at a later date. The basic criteria is.. budget around £100, possible a bit more if it was really warranted. Mainly he smokes alone unless theres a gathering and generally at home . nearly always dry herb and just a little hit in the evenings maybe to take the edge off, he is, like myself, after all, a responsible middle aged family man with kids ffs. something farely smooth, with decent vapour and reliable however its packed or the volume of its packing, and easy to use.
    Will be interesting if you have tried the vape dynamics unit so i can have a comparison to go with !
    Still really enjoy it but always have an open mind for advancement and anyhow need to recommend a good vape to my mates missus and maybe one for me too.
    So Buzz any ideas would be most appreciated, Much thanks Dave.

    Hey Buzz,

    I’m new to the world of vaping and decided to give the V2 Pro 3 a shot so as not to throw money away if it turns out to not be my thing.
    I was just wondering if you had any tips for how best to load and pack the dry herb chamber to get the best results?

    P.s. Super-appreciative of your site and all the time you’ve put in to ‘researching’ and testing etc, it’s been my bible for wrapping my head around the whole world of vaporisers. Thanks alot! :)

      Hey Squidgy,

      I like a very fine grind, and a full loaded and tamped down oven with the V2 Pro 3. If you have a standard 3 or 4 piece grinder, I suggest you flip it upside down when you grind your herb, this will grind it up extra fine. I then use a small measuring spoon scoop I got off amazon for ~$5 and it works nicely for filling the dry herb carts.

    shipping to canada for one $25 loose leaf cartridge is $100 after shipping and exchange rate .just glad I now have a good reason to toss this piece of crap and my five cartridges out the window .people SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy a better unit and with a less hassle warranty .by the way customer service still sucks <in my mind. bought because of the review but wish i had not for quite some time now

    i love love loveeeee my Series 3! It was hard to get used to at first since i’ve been using the regular ecigs for a couple years, but once i did, i haven’t looked back. i’m real proud of myself for switching up! I can’t believe how far I’ve gone since I bought a disposable at the 7-11 in Aug 2013. i never thought i would figure out how to use these complicated pens, but i did!

    LISTEN TO MY EXPERIENCE 1st BEFORE YOU PURCHASE:
    Both my Dry Herb & Liquid Cartrige broke.
    Dry Herb Cartrige: 1 month – The Ring came off (Glue doesn’t hold) no big deal, but, 1 month after that, the screen in the rubber tip, now comes out every time I pull off the tip to put in new herb. It falls into, the metal chamber & because its sticky, I always have to clean off some herb, now that is irritating. The glue also isn’t holding, that’s the reason. I know because I had to dig it off the rubber, wasn’t sticking to the metal. But that wasn’t the worst…
    Oh last thing, I Vape big bowls, the dry Herb is cute, & fun, but way too small for me, the high is short, but if your the occasional vaper, then you’ll b fine (low tolerance).
    (Worst) My e-Liquid Cartrige (a month after use) separated @ the top, where the plastic meets the metal, the metal is jaggedey, but the only thing holding them together is also the glue. That is the worst joint I have ever seen. When I went to switch out my Liquid cart, the bottom half stuck in the pen by the magnet, & the top part was only in my hand. It was full & the Liquid spilled all down between the walls of my pen. I was freaking out, cause I couldn’t get the Bottom half out, & the Liquid was soaking. I finally grabbed a needle nose pliers & pulled it out. Cleaned up all the mess as best as I could, hoping the Liquid didn’t go deep & will be a big problem in the future. I emailed them, & this is there quoted reply:
    “We apologize for the delayed response. Cartridges are considered consumable items, therefore are not covered under warranty. Wax a Loose Leaf Cartridge, can last anywhere from 3-5 months. Liquid Cartridges for an optimal vaping experience, should be replaced after 5 refills. We do not recommend using any form of adhesive on the Cartridges or Vaporizer. In the event that there is any other way that we can assist you please send us another message.” …(I did not edit anything in the quotes, that’s there exact reply)
    I put scotch tape around it to hold the pieces together, how ghetto is that?
    So, if I was dumb, I could swollow whole (consume) all 3 of my cartridges? They’re only supposed to last 3-5 months, well mines broke 1-2 months… I asked what glue they use, & they won’t tell me (it has to be Heat & Inhalation Safe)…my guess is they don’t want people fixing there own vapes, they just want us to buy new cartridges every 2 months?
    Honestly, a pen this bad couldn’t be a 4.5, along w/ lame customer service, & bad warranty. The pen itself I’d give a 2-3, but the Cartriges a 1. All together, I’d still conscider it a 1 because they go together. I think the reviews are false, I bet, everyone in the company along w/ there family & friends were forced to put 5’s so it would be high. I had another Vape, found out later it was a 3.5, but it still lasted longer then this vape, by far. I just started using my wax cart 2 days ago, & honestly, it does look strong, but I really don’t expect to last either.
    Won’t buy again. I almost never write reviews, only unless I get screwed over, & I feel like paying $80 (for the kit) should last way more than 1-2 months, hence, I was screwed over badly!!!
    I have pictures also, that I sent to the company, I can’t post them sadly, no attachments.
