V2 Pro Series 7 Vaporizer Review


UPDATE: Unfortunately V2 has dropped out of the dry herb vaporizing game and so this article is no longer up to date. I urge you to head over to my best portable vaporizer page to see the currently recommended vapes

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.

If you wanted the option to vape concentrates you can pick up the Series 7 Wax Cartridge for $29.99 bringing the total to $179.99 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 also found the unit has quite a bit of draw resistance, and the vapor quality is just decent. However, the V2 Pro are the cheapest all in one units that actually work so you can’t expect them to perform amazing.

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 (link below in comparison section)

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 often leak after a few weeks of heavy use and need to be replaced. The concentrate cartridge works pretty well, it needs cleaned and eventually replaced occasionally but that’s kind of expected with a wax cartridge. The dry herb cartridge works pretty well, but it does require burn-offs to get a clean taste, I go more into that below.

V2 Pro S7 Dry Herb Cartridge

So 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. 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, Wall charger, USB charger, a brush, double ended scooper, and 3 extra dry herb screens. Decent accessory setup for the price. I really like the usb magnetic charger, it’s slick.

Chamber, Vapor Path, and Temp Spectrum (Dry Herb)

V2 Pro Series 7 Dry Herb Chamber
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 I mainly use the Series 7 at 390F/199C. 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 chamber vapes evenly without needing stirred.

The vapor quality is a bit below average. It runs on the hotter/dry/harsh side with some draw resistance. Like a lot of the units under $200 you will have to do ‘burn-offs’ when the unit is new to get a clean taste. This means running the dry herb cart on max temperature without any herbs in the chamber. Then puffing on it like a cigar to draw air through the unit without inhaling. I had to do a couple battery charges with my S7.

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 as they seem to occasionally leak if you do this.

Battery Specs, Battery Life, and Charging Options

V2 ProS7 Charging Options
The battery life is actually pretty decent and I’ve been averaging about 50 minutes on a full charge. It takes roughly 2 hours to fully charge a dead battery.

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 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.  I do really like the magnetic charging cable, its much quicker/easier than plugging in a micro usb.

V2 Pro Series 7 Comparisons

V2 Pro Series 7 Vaporizer Comparisons
The $149 price point is pretty competitive and the V2 Pro Series 7 is an good 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 better vapor quality. If you wanted something smaller, check out the Boundless CF for $129. 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 Arizer Air.  If you are looking for the best dry herb vapor quality in this price range you should go for the Air.  The Air only costs $169 if you use the coupon code ‘AIR’ but it has better vapor quality than almost any portable unit under $300. The main downside is that it does have a glass stem, so its a bit cumbersome to carry in your pocket on the go

If you are looking for an on the go portable, the Pax 2 recently was dropped to $199 and its tough to beat.  The vapor quality is better than the V2 S7 by a lot, it very simple and easy to use, its extremely reliable and comes with a 10 year warranty.

If you still wanted the option vape dry herbs, e-liquids, and concentrates, I recommend checking out the Haze v3. It’s going to cost more than the V2 Pro Series 7 but its superior in every way except the e-liquid option. You get less draw resistance, much better dry herb vapor quality, 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 vape article if you want to read more about my very favorite dry herb vaporizers.

V2 Pro Series 7 Summary

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 heavy users.

Its easy to carry, easy to hold, easy to use, reasonably priced, and versatile.  Just don’t expect top tier performance.

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.

Overall Score
V2 Pro Series 7 Vaporizer Review

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).

    I have been using my V2 Series 7 on and off for over a year now, well been trying too. I use both the dry leaf cartridge and the e-liquid cartridge. Initially I was impressed with the Series 7 because of its versatility being able to use dry leaf and e-liquid with one device, but the longer our relationship goes on the more and more dislike I have for this device! The e-liquid cartridges in my opinion ARE NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE, they are supposedly refillable several times before needing replacing, V2 Quote on their website – ‘can be refilled around 15 to 20 times depending on how frequently it is used and refilled’. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY CARTRIDGES HAS LEAKED WITHIN 3 REFILLS, I have tried around 10 new cartridges now (at £20 a go) and they all leak on the first or second fill of e-liquid, I’m not a particularly heavy e-liquid user, and generally use it in the car to and from work – around 30 minute drive each way and I’m just puffing it occasionally during the drive, not constantly. The last one leaked a full refilled tank (only 2nd refill) through the machine – it was seeping out the base of the device into my coat top pocket and I now have a nice stain on my £300 winter coat, GREAT! It now seems to leak out the bottom of the device every time I use it going all over my hands. That was quite literally the last draw with the V2, I have now decided the best thing is to do is scrap the V2 and use 2 separate vape’s, 1 for dried herb and 1 for e-liquid. I shall be returning to my old faithful Magic Flight launch box and buy a mod box for e-liquid.

    Would I recommend it to a friend ?…… No defiantly not, I wish I’d saved all the money I’ve wasted on cartridges over the last year and bought myself a PAX2 or Firefly for the ‘loose leaf’ and a regular mod box/e-cig for the nicotine hit in the car!!!!

    Has it help me stop smoking? Hell No! I’ve just got e-liquid all over me and my clothing now – that’s pretty much all its done!!!

      Yea the e-liquid cartridges are definitely not the best. Have you found anything to replace it for loose leaf/dry herb? I would recommend the Grasshopper if you’re looking for something in pen form. The CF by Boundless vapes if you wanted something in the same price range. I have a review for the CFX for now which is the bigger brother of the CF. The CFX features full temp control, more battery life and a quick charge feature but bigger overall than the CF.

    This particular vape is my first real vape. I tired an even cheaper one but luckily there was something wrong with the battery and I was able to get a refund. So I bought this one. It seems to do the job . It can get harsh and the taste only lasts for the first heat cycle. Speaking of which, the 150 second heat cycle bugs me. The thing I truly love about it is the idea of the cartridges. It’s really nice to have a couple on hand that you can pre-load and your set for the day. The portability is also nice. Is there anything out there that is much better that has a cartridge type system or large enough chamber yet looks inconspicuous? I only need for dry herd. Thanks!

      Nothing that really comes close to the v2 series vaporizer. You could check out the Grasshopper which is a pen style vaporizer but doesn’t use cartridges.

    I purchased the Series 7 Vaporizer over 3 months ago through the UK/Ireland store, and while I have been happy with aspects of the product – battery life, charge speed, and quality of smoke – I have been very disappointed with the build quality.

    I am not a heavy user (I would use it most days, once or maybe twice at most) but after one month the loose leaf cap broke – the plastic catches wore away or snapped off – and I contacted the seller who kindly sent a replacement cap with no quibbles. However that replacement broke in exactly the same manner after six weeks, and this was with very careful use as I was aware of the problem. I contacted them again but was told that they wouldn’t be replacing it again and I would have to purchase a whole new cartridge as they do not sell the caps (you can get them in US but they won’t ship to UK)

    Now I have no problem replacing parts after fair use, but I think it is unreasonable to be expected to replace a substantial component of the vaporizer every month due to what is patently a design flaw in the product build. Not only that, but a replacement Loose Leaf Cartridge on your site is €36 (€45) including shipping, which if I had to buy every month would be €540 per year.

    On top of that, the cartridge has now stopped charging as well, after only 3 months light use.

    As I like the product I contacted customer service on two occasions and didn’t even get a reply

    TERRIBLE PRODUCT.

    The e-liquid cartridge fell apart on the second day of use (1st refill – less than 50 puffs).

    Having contacted support they said I should stop using the cartridge! In the meanwhile they took about 25 days to post a new one within the EU!!! How comfortable.

    I received the replacement which after less than a week of use (2nd refil, maybe 150 puffs) it broke down too. The answer of V2 support was as follows:

    You will need to buy replacement cartridges for your device.
     
    It is the customers responsibility to replace the cartridges.  These products are consumables and will deteriorate.

    Kind regards
    Ruth
     
    …

    The plastic container unglues after a few days and the cartridge renders useless. If you are lucky to get the customer support to respond to you(took me several emails to make them reply), you will only get your first cartridge replaced but all cartridges will keep on failing (and they will then claim that this is ‘normal’)

    In a nutshell, the device does not work. The cartridges are over-engineered towards making it impossible to replace in alternative means and directing sales to this elaborate, super expensive and not-working V2 cartridge. (I knew it was expensive beforehand but I expected it to work!)

    Last but also important: support stuff has said that the cartridge can only last up to a month. This is not mentioned anywhere in their website and makes the e-liquid maintenance cost to 12* 17£. Ie 204£ per year ONLY FOR E-LIQUID CARTRIDGE! no matter if you puff it once per day.

    Deeply regret buying the product – 3in1 was a good idea but the V2 implementation doesn’t work. (Unless you want to spend potentially >500£per year maintaining it- This is really the amount it’ll get down to if the cartridge goes useless every second refill/week at most) Suggest people steer clear of it and into a quality ecig + individual vapouriser.

    Worst product out there. They make you buy new Chambers every month say that normal wear and tear, that’s crap in my book. Do not buy this product.

      Yea this is not really the best unit for heavier users. The cartridges are basically disposable. I’ll add a bit to my review about this. Sorry that you didn’t enjoy this one. Have you tried anything else? Are you still using the V2?

    I like this brand. Vapour2 gave me a chance to try dry herbs and liquids and i like it. Of course if you use it many times you have to buy new cartridges but i usually i expect that. I am not very heavy user so they last long enough. I think it is fair device for probably not too picky users like me. It can produce good vapor and has very simple button to set the temperature and intensity. And i like simplicity.

      I agree! It’s great for people who dont vape a lot. And the cartridges are disposable basically. I wish they lasted a bit longer but for the price it’s not a bad deal. Thank you for your thoughts on the V2 Pro!

    This is a poorly constructed vaporizor. The mouthpiece attaches to the cartridge with two small plastic clips. The clips broke after a month of usage. It took another month for a replacement mouthpiece (which I had to pay for) to be shipped. The vaporizer stopped working completely (would not power on) after less than 6 months of usage. V2 makes it really difficult to return vaporizers–they tell you to mail it to them at your cost and do not even provide you with a shipping label. Then it will take 6 weeks for them to process the return. I just threw it away and bought a Pax2. I would never buy another V2 Pro series 7.

      I’m sorry you had shitty luck with it. I agree it’s not a long-term reliable vaporizer, especially with the basically “disposable” cartridges. It’s much better for someone who only smokes once every so often. Daily use is definitely not it’s strong suit. I’m glad that you enjoy Pax 2. Pax products definitely have a much better reputation in customer service and overall reliability.

    Just got our V2 today and read all instructions put loose leaf in set temp held button for 3-4 seconds and NOTHING! Won’t come on, it show the temperature lights from 1 to 3 after pushing button for 3times but won’t heat up! I hate when I buy a piece of shit! Wish I had seen these reviews before purchase.

      Peggy I am sorry to hear about your poor experience. It should work better than that, so you could go through the warranty process and try a different unit if you wanted. However even when working flawlessly the V2 Pro Series 7 is lackluster.

    Terrible vape pen. Battery life is a joke, HAve only had new unit for a couple months and have had numerous problems. I think a reasonable price for this unit looks more like 20.00 not 120. Buy another unit, dont waste your money on the v2 pro series 7.
