The V2 Pro Series 7 is a portable conduction vaporizer made by v2 cigs. They also make the V2 Pro Series 3 which is a smaller pen version of the S7. The V2 Pro S7 is a jack of all trades but master of none offering the ability to vape dry herbs, concentrates, and e-liquids. But just like the S3, the quality of each of them isn’t the best.
The V2 Pro Series 7 is for someone who wants to vape all materials and stick under the $200 price range. You can Click here to pick up the v2 series 7 for $169 directly from V2 Cigs. It will come with one dry herb cartridge and one e-liquid cartridge. If you wanted the option to vape concentrates you can pick up the Series 7 Wax Cartridge for $29.99 bringing the total to $200 for the entire kit.
The S7 offers decent heat up times and battery life for a conduction vaporizer this size but the cartridges are not the most reliable. I’ve found the unit has quite a bit of draw resistance, and the vapor quality is just meh. However, the V2 Pro are the cheapest all in one units that you can currently pick up.
The Haze V3 retails for $249.99 and I think it’s a much better all-in-one option. The only downfall on the Haze is that the E-liquid cartridges taste a bit overcooked. So the V2 Pro S7 offers a better e-liquid experience and it’s more portable/easy to conceal. But dry herb vapor quality, draw resistance, battery life, and reliability are much better with the Haze V3. Check out my full V2 Pro Series 7 vaporizer review below.
Size, Portability, and Build Quality
The V2 Pro Series 7 is a very pocketable vaporizer. It’s just the right size to easily grip and throw in your pocket. It’s about 1 ¾ inches taller than the Pax 2 and about ¾’s of an inch wider. So it’s not the smallest but still easy to conceal. The exact dimensions of the V2 Pro Series 7 are 5 1/8 inches tall by 1 3/8 inches wide by about 1 inch deep. The Series 7 weighs 111 grams with the dry herb cartridge. By comparison the Pax 2 weighs 90 grams, the Firefly 2 weighs 140 grams, the Haze v3 weighs 193 grams, and the TI Grasshopper weighs about 55 grams.
The actual device is built well and feels durable/strong in the hands. The problems start with the cartridges and mostly the e-liquid one. The e-liquid cartridges for both the S3 and S7 have leaked after a few weeks and needed to be replaced. The concentrate cartridge requires quite a bit of cleaning and maintenance but that’s kind of expected with a wax device. The dry herb cartridge works pretty well, but it does require burnoffs to get a clean taste, I go more into that below.
So I guess I would recommend this to a person who might not be a heavy user in any category (dry, liquid, wax/concentrates). You simply like to vape all materials but you don’t vape all the time. And don’t leave the e-liquid in the cartridge for extended periods or it can leak in the unit and require extra cleaning. Basically, if you are vaping mostly dry herbs, you are better off with a different vaporizer and I will mention a few good options below. If you like the idea of having options, the Series 7 will work for you.
V2 Pro Series 7 Accessories
With the V2 Pro Series 7, you get (1) one dry herb (loose leaf) cartridge, (1) one e-liquid cartridge, DC charger, USB charger, a brush, double ended scooper, and 3 extra dry herb screens. Nothing too crazy with the accessories from v2, it’s pretty much the same as other comparable units.
Chamber, Vapor Path, and Temp Spectrum (Dry Herb)
The Series 7 uses a stainless chamber with a stainless steel screen and a plastic vapor path/mouthpiece. The Series 7 does NOT have a full temp spectrum like most other units coming out nowadays. You get 3 different temp settings, the first is 390, temp 2 is 415F and temp 3 is 440F. So these are pretty hot temps and I’ve found that the Series 7 is really only enjoyable on the lowest temp. You can get bigger clouds with the hotter temps but the taste goes down and the harshness goes up. The V2 Pro Series 7 Chamber will hold about .25 grams of herb with a standard grind which is more than enough for a decent group session.
The vapor quality is below average. It runs hot, dry/harsh and quite a bit of draw resistance. I had to do 3-4 full charges worth of burnoffs to get rid of the new unit smell. (Run the dry herb cart empty without any herbs on the high temp setting. Then puff on it like a cigar to draw air through the unit without inhaling)
Cleaning and Maintenance
The screen should be brushed out after pretty much every session otherwise the draw resistance goes up as it gets clogged. I also would NOT store your e-liquid juice in the cartridge for extended periods.
Battery Specs, Battery Life, and Charging Options
The Series 7 uses an 1800mAh variable voltage battery (3.7v, 4.2v, 4.7v). The cartridges automatically recognize which method you are using and changes temps for the correct materials. So the max temp with the dry herb is 440F while the max on the concentrate cartridge is 1112F/600C.
The battery is NOT replaceable but the unit does come with pass-through charging so you can use the unit while it’s charging. One thing I don’t like is that you can’t check the battery life of the unit but overall the battery life and charging options are pretty impressive.
V2 Pro Series 7 Comparisons
The $169 price point is pretty competitive and the V2 Pro Series 7 is an ok option for an all-in-one but if you will be using it mostly for dry herb, I recommend checking out a couple different options.
The first unit I recommend is the Boundless CFX which retails for $169. This unit is bigger and not quite as easy to pocket out on the go but it offers a full temp spectrum, heats up in about 20 seconds and produces much better vapor quality. If you wanted something smaller, check out the Boundless CF. The CF doesn’t have the full temp spectrum or on vape oled display but offers the same quick heat up and vapor quality in a smaller size and cheaper price.
Next up is the G Pen Elite which also retails for $169. The Elite comes with a full temp spectrum, heats up in about 30 seconds and is actually smaller than the V2 Pro Series 7. The Elite is a better option if you didn’t need the e-liquid/concentrate options.
If you still wanted the option vape dry herbs, e-liquids, and concentrates, I recommend checking out the Haze v3. It’s going to run $50 more than the V2 Pro Series 7 but its superior in every way except the e-liquid option. You get less draw resistance, better battery life with replaceable batteries, 10-year warranty, pre-packing cans and just overall much better reliability.
Next is the V2 Pro Series 3 which is basically the same as the V2 Pro S7 but smaller form factor, less battery life and more for a single person light user.
Lastly, check out my best portable vaporizer article to check out my very favorite dry herb vaporizers.
The V2 Pro Series 7 is definitely not the worst portable vaporizer but it’s definitely not the best. Like I mentioned above it’s a jack of all trades and master of none. You can successfully vape dry herbs, e-liquids, and your waxes/oils but I feel like it might not fully satisfy a lot of heavy users.
If you don’t vape all day every day and want the option to vape dry herbs, concentrates and e-liquids then this can work for you.
I recommend picking up the V2 Pro Series 7 directly from v2 cigs and if you have any questions about the Series 7, Series 3, or any other vaporizer, feel free to leave a comment below or hit me on my contact page.
Thanks for checking out my V2 Pro Series 7 vaporizer review and have a great day.
Overall the Series 7 is a decent all-in-one portable vape but not the best in any category. I would only get this if you are a light user of all three vaping methods (dry herb, concentrates, and e-liquids). Click here to check out the Series 7 directly from V2 Cigs.
