V2 Cigs - The Leader in Electronic Cigarette Flavours

  • Red has more of a sharp tobacco taste and feedback suggests this has the best e cig flavour.
  • Congress has a smooth tobacco taste.
  • Sahara leaves a smooth French/Turkish aftertaste and offers something different and is liked by many customers.
  • Each smoker likes something different in what they smoke, so it's important to try the range of flavours and strengths available. The above is an indication only and one smoker may find the experience very different - everyone's taste is different.
  • For 'light' cigarettes - use the lower strengths - 0.6% to 1.2%.
  • There are also 8 fruity/exotic flavours (Menthol, Peppermint, Coffee, Cherry, Vanilla, Mint Tea, Grape and Chocolate (yummy !).

How do I choose my E Liquid or E Cigarette Flavour?

Selecting the best e-cig flavour is an art not a science. The flavour and taste of an e cigarette is different for each of us and smokers find something in what they smoke that they like - sharpness - smoothness - after taste or no after taste etc. Some e-cig users have said they like the slight sweet aftertaste which is possible with Vanilla and Chocolate flavour e-cigs. The Table above is the personal opinion of our tasters and is just an initial starters guide. We suggest that first time e-cig users try different flavour/strength combinations over time to get it right. Don't give up if you don't like the taste, try a different flavour.

The ideal way to get started is to try the different flavours in a V2 Cigs Cartridge Sampler Pack which is available in zero nicotine and 4 nicotine strengths.

If you prefer to use e-liquid and a mini tank rather than  e cigarette cartridges then try the V2Cigs E-Liquid Sampler Pack which contains 6 x 10ml of V2's best e liquid flavours.

Helpful User Feedback:

"I used to smoke Silk Cut Lights and Red 6mg is really good for me, 1.2% when I'm a busy/under pressure. Some customers also say Red is similar to Marlboro. Others say try Sahara if you like B&H."

We would suggest experimenting with these to see which you prefer. Initially try the Red and Sahara options - please stipulate your alternatives at checkout. Then when you are ready for a re-order, include the Congress option. You will quickly find out which is most suitable to you.

If you smoke menthol cigarettes - simply go for the menthol or peppermint option - both are lovely!

For those who want to try something new then there are additional flavours including coffee and chocolate. I have tried many different flavours - say I'm old fashioned but when I smoke I don't want to mix concepts. If I want coffee I get a cuppa - if I want a mint flavour I buy mints or chewing gum or similar. Do try them though and make up your own mind.

And, as always, if need you any help or advice please pick up the phone and talk to us. We love to speak to our customers!

E Cigs: Why Make the Switch?

One of the most important issues to people across the globe is the state of their personal health. Yes, this is even ironically true for most, if not all, tobacco smokers. Though they understand the risks associated with tobacco smoking and the damage they are doing to their bodies, the fundamental health concerns are still there.

Fortunately, e cigarettes were introduced to the market several years ago. Though final conclusive research is yet to be released, we currently have a myriad of case studies showing the promising health benefits of e cigs compared to tobacco. In addition to world renowned doctors, government health bodies such as Public Health England have conducted their own tests on e cigarettes and the health effects connected with their usage.

In August 2015, PHE noted that, "In a nutshell, best estimates show e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful to your health than normal cigarettes, and when supported by a smoking cessation service, help most smokers to quit tobacco altogether."

But aside from being significantly less harmful to your health and helping smokers quit in a more successful manner than other smoking cessation devices, there are still numerous other benefits to e cigs over tobacco cigarettes. These benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • No tar in e cigs
  • Cheaper than tobacco cigarettes
  • Range of flavours to choose from
  • Enjoy e cigs in many areas where smoking is prohibited
  • No staining of the teeth
  • No foul odour

  • In addition to the above benefits, e cigs are far better for the environment. Combine all of this together, and it is no surprise that close to 3 million people in the UK alone have made the switch to e cigarettes.

    Though V2 Cigs services millions of happy customers across the globe, we still have some ways to go. With over 10 million tobacco smokers in the UK, we can help improve the health of millions of more lives. So if you haven’t yet made the switch or you have family and friends trying to kick the tobacco habit, put your trust in us to make it happen.
