We are going to be taking a look at the brand new V2 Pro Series 3 (3-in-1 vaporizer), and they couldn’t have picked a better reviewer to send this to, because I’m a 3-in-1 vaper-er. I vape it all!
I haven’t reviewed a product from V2 in a while. They were one of my preferred e-cigarettes a couple of years ago, but it seemed like they kind of fell behind the times for a while, but they are coming back strong with actually the first 3-in-1 vaporizer that I’ve seen.
All right, so this is the basic kit here. It works with three different cartridges for your e-liquids, your dry herbs, or your herbal concentrates. V2 is one of the first companies with the balls to step into the whole herbal vaporizer realm and sort of tied in with their products. For such a big mainstream company, I’m kind of surprised but it just goes to show you the direction I think everyone is going. There will be some other states following Washington and Colorado soon, so V2 at least seems to think so.
This is their basic unit. There are a few little neat touches I want to show you about it. So, instead of screwing the tank on, you can see right here it shows you whether it is an e-liquid tank or a dry herb or concentrate. You just push that and pull up, and the tank slides out of the middle there. It’s actually magnetically connected if you listen. It snaps right into place.
I like the idea of having an all-in-one vaporizer. I just hope V2 isn’t trying too hard to do everything where you have to kind of go with the lowest common denominator – you know, you end up being a Jack-of-all-trades but a master of none. There are several interesting things about this new V2 Pro Series 3. They are actually going to be coming out with a Series 7 and Series 9, they say later this fall, and again in the winter.
All right, like I said, I’ve got this thing prefilled with some e-juice in it. Now they didn’t send me the dry herb or the concentrate cartridges. After looking on the website, I see that the cartridge for the concentrates isn’t going to be out until later this year, too. But they do have the one for the dry herbs, so I’m going to go ahead and buy that and I will do a review for that over on the Epic Herb Reviews. If you’re into that sort of thing, check it out over there. This is the first time I’m going to be able to review the same product for both channels – interesting how everything is merging together now.

The charger similarly is also magnetically connected. There are no screws or anything to tie in; it just snaps right into place. Very strong magnets – watch this – it pulls itself right in. Then you just plug it off of your wall charger or off your computer – anything with a USB – and the bonus: you can use it as a pass-through also. If you’ve got a car charger, you know, and you’re driving around, you can put it right in there. Anyways, that’s some of the unique features about it with the magnetic connectors, instead of having to have any kind of threading at all. But of course, that does mean you’re not using any other tanks on this besides the ones that come with it. It’s got to be kind of an all-in-one proprietary type thing.
Well I told you there were a couple of interesting features. One of them is the fact that it has a built-in microprocessor. They say it’s a smart battery. Each of the cartridges has its own recognizable single basically and it’s upgradable to where they can build newer cartridges into the future that will also be recognized by the processor and the cartridge tells the battery exactly what it needs to do. Pretty interesting in theory, anyway. It’s going to vaporize different when it has the dry herb cartridge or the concentrates cartridge. Each cartridge is going to tell the battery how to perform and what to do.
And if you actually watch the video when I do the dry herb attachment, you’re going to see it actually vapes very different on that than it does on this. It’s not a push-button type thing; you actually have to let it warm up and it does a whole oven basically that heats up for those. I’m interested to see how well it works for that, but for this video, we’re just going to go ahead and just try it out with the e-juice in it and it just has one setting, like I said for each cartridge or tank that you’re going to put on there. It’s going to tell the battery what to do and it’s supposedly going to give you the perfect vape, there’s nothing to adjust, no variable voltage or anything like that.
Now it does have the press three time battery. That’s going to turn it off now, it won’t turn on in your pocket or anything. Press it three times, turn it back on. It really couldn’t be much simpler. This is a 1.8 mL tank; it actually holds more juice than what you think when you take a look at it. But I couldn’t find the mahs on the battery, I’m not exactly sure how long this is going to end. I’m going to have to vape it through one time and then let you guys know on an update.
This is a top coil; you can see the wicks hanging down from the top there. I might be a little bit surprised they didn’t go with a bottom coil design, since that does seem to be the newest and kind of the most advanced tanks are all using that. But let’s go ahead and give this V2 Pro a shot and see how well it vapes, man. I’m kind of excited try it out. It’s the first V2 product I’ve tried out in a while.
Not bad vapor production or flavor off of this. The first thing I noticed on this is that it’s a very tight draw. There is no adjustable airflow or anything. Maybe that will be something that will come out with one of the future tanks that snaps in that will have an adjustable airflow on it. But this is a tight draw, for people who are taking long hits, this probably isn’t going to be the tank for you. Although I think they are again geared more towards people trying to get off cigarettes or trying to make an easy, simple tank for beginners in an all-in-one type of unit. For people just getting off cigarettes, I think the drag is going to be all right.
Probably one of the bigger hits I could get off of this right there, you get an idea of how much vapor but still plenty for someone just trying to come off cigarettes I think.
Not too bad, I gotta say. I’m not overly thrilled with the mouthpiece and the draw is a little bit tight, but it vapes pretty damn well. It is a very convenient little, you know, nice packaged unit. I’m going to be very interested to see how the dry herb tank works on it and then the concentrate one which will be released later on. But I guess for people in Washington and Colorado who are just getting off cigarettes and trying to switch over to vaping for all of their needs, this could be a pretty nice little nifty all-in-one type thing. All you have to do is switch tanks out and you’re smoking your cigarette one second, you switch it out, and you’re smoking your herbs another second.
Not too bad for what it is. It’s about $60 per unit. They’ve got a couple more advanced units coming out that are going to be a little bit more expensive. But I think the idea they’re going for is a good one. I don’t know if this is the perfected model yet, but not too bad. Definitely a beginner tank. I don’t see anybody switching over, you know, from a 134 or VTR mod – something like that – to one of these. But for somebody just looking to step off or just looking to get off cigarettes, this might be a not too bad introductory type of a product.
Pass-through capability is a nice addition to it and all-magnetic attachments. It’s easy for a stoner to deal with, I could tell you that.
