V2’s premier battery gives you many more puffs than other batteries of the same size. And its LED lights indicate battery charge level. A really useful feature.
Introducing the V2 Cigs EX Battery!
Our most powerful and best E-Cig battery to date.
The V2Cigs EX Battery combines sleek design with robust vapour production. Break-through technology provides a much higher puff count than comparatively sized batteries. We replaced the plastic tip with a solid finish and added charge indicator lights to the body. These tiny LED lights glow when you puff, showing how much power remains before your battery needs to be recharged.
Our innovation didn’t stop at performance. By popular demand, we’re thrilled to offer the EX Battery in five, unique design choices: Brushed Steel, Carbon Fiber, Scarlet Metallic, Royale and Bloom. Each battery arrives with a cartridge sleeve that fits neatly over both V2 Classic and EX Cartridges*. A rubber ring at the base of your EX Battery catches the sleeve and holds it firmly in place. We included three spare rings in your EX Battery package so that you’ll have a replacement on hand should the original get lost.
The V2 EX Battery operates at 4.2 volts, 280 mAh. Length: 100 mm /3.94". 135 mm /5.31” with Flavour Cartridge attached. Diameter: 9.5 mm /0.38"
Vapour2 Classic and EX Automatic batteries are activated as you draw air through your electronic cigarette. Puffing will trigger an internal pressure switch which activates the atomization process. Vapour2 cartridge may require a few quick puffs to warm the atomizer (this is known as "priming"). Optimal vapour will be produced on your third and subsequent puffs. With the Vapour2 Classic and EX Manual battery, you must press and hold down a button for the duration of your puff. Vapour thickness is regulated through the use of the button. Optimal vapour will be produced on your third and subsequent puffs.
*EX Cartridge Sleeves do not fit over the EX Blank Cartridges.
For continuity we recommend that you always have at least 2 batteries so that you have one charging while you are vaping. With the appropriate care the life expectancy of your two batteries should be between 6 and 8 months – batteries can also last lot longer than this.
Subtle yet satisfying

I have been buying these for a about 4 years. So yes I like them. It's a gentle vape without the huge effect of some on the market, which some people choose. It's elegant, its small and slim look suits me too because it does not attract attention.
Posted by Jeffrey Wallis on 22nd Mar 2018
Have used the automatic battery since I gave up tobacco and find they suit me well. I like the five lights on the end to show you how much charge is left. Most of the time I like to have two new ones because I tend to lose the occasional one and I know that I have some spares at home.
The last time I bought a couple I had a problem with them both and they were replaced with no quibble at all. Fantastic customer service at this company.
All in all I would recommend this product.
Quality Product and Excellent Customer Service from

Very happy with the quality and operation of this battery from V2. I made some enquiries with Customer Service as to performance and battery life and was delighted by the outstanding customer service I received from Ieva who looked after me very well.
Many thanks and congratulations on an excellent product and team.
Best in class without question
Posted by Unknown on 17th Jan 2018
This battery sits somewhere between a cig-a-like and vape pen. Size wise it's a cig-a-like, but competes with a low end pen on performance. You'll see many good reviews on style and quality here so I won't repeat them, except to say I agree this is the best in class for both style and quality.
The area I really want to review on is battery life. I believe these come with a 3 month warranty, which is fairly standard but quite short for such an expensive battery. I noticed there have also been a few less than favourable reviews on battery life. Whilst I can't comment on these, I can give you my own experience.
I bought 4 EX batteries 2 years ago. I have 2 in use throughout the day and 2 on charge, so I always have charged batteries and enough battery power if I'm away from home. 2 of the batteries are just now showing signs of age and will be replaced shortly (with 2 new EX batteries of course!), the other 2 are still going strong and show no signs of giving up the ghost. 2 years is far more than I expected from any battery (the Mrs buys cheap ones from elsewhere and they last a month or two) and reflects the quality of this product.
Going to buy another one
Posted by email@example.com on 12th Jan 2018
Looks good, feels good in your hand, easy to operate the button too. Battery lasts me nearly all day or night (I work shifts) the vapour production from such as small device is quite frankly the best on the market for this type of battery.
Not just saying this but I am going to buy another.

Great Customer Service
Posted by Philip Carre on 10th Jun 2017
I already have a couple of the manual versions but as they are a few months old they no longer hold a charge for as long as they used to so I ordered another, when it came i could not get any 'draw' from it despite changing the rubber ring, cleaning the air holes and resetting it.
I informed customer services and Vicky has sent me a new one straight away which works perfectly and I didn't have all the hassle of sending the non-working one back, so well done customer service.

I bought the V2 EX and Power Cig to augment the V2 Classic batteries I already had when I gave up smoking cigars 37 days and 16 hours ago! The finest compliment I can pay the V2 EX is that, with my other V2 items, have made giving up almost a pleasure as I save my EX for after meals as a treat and really look forward to it. Added to this, the service received from V2 is very good and engenders a loyalty to the supplier as I know that my orders are always dealt with as wished
Giving up was so easy
Posted by Seb on 26th Feb 2017
One of my friends had bought an e-cig to give up smoking so I decided to do the same thing. A quick google showed me that V2 were the brand to go for. I ordered the starter pack with 2.4 Nicotine and tried out all the flavours, Congress and Sahara are fantastic authentic flavours and the product worked incredibly. Within a couple of days I loved my V2 EX far more than I ever loved cigarettes. It was incredibly effective and I would recommend this product to everyone. I'm now on 0.6 Nicotine and its still incredibly satisfying. If you want to give up smoking, buy this product, it will work wonders. Thank you V2!!
Response From Team V2
Well done to you!
Some advice and tips
Posted by Philip Carre on 25th Feb 2017
I have been using 3 automatic V2 EX for around 9 months and finally had to buy a new couple so i went for the manual, this is way better than what i had before and that was 4 stars.
don't use them until you can't get a good puff anymore change the battery before that or else the cartridge will leak badly.
If you get the burnt taste just change the cartridge because it is like when you get to the last bit of a ciggie it tastes burnt, well these cartridges are the same so stop being a miser and you won't get the burnt taste, ok you won't get 400 puffs but you still get lots of puffs and all of them are good ones.
Response From Team V2.
We are delighted that you are getting along well with them. Your tips are valid and we recommend them! It will also help if you separate the cart from the battery when not in use. This prolongs the life of both the cart and the battery
Very good vape and surprisingly robust
Posted by Rona Urquhart on 14th Jan 2017
I have been using the ex series for over two months having been a smoker for over 10 years and I'm very impressed. I should say that the first battery I bought developed a fault with the tip coming away from the body of the battery but V2 replaced it immediately and I've had no further issues. You get a good, consistent vape and I love how slender and discreet these batteries are.
However, the thing I'm most amazed by which has led me to write a review is how hardy these are. I lost one on a dark morning dog walk this week as it fell out of my pocket (I've now ordered a lanyard for them). Now it's been snowing, frosty and never made it above 2 degrees this week. I found it again a day and a half later by the side of the road. It's clearly been run over by a car as it has some scuffs, a few little dings and it's no longer perfectly cylindrical but rather ever so slightly flattened. However, the damage is only minor and it still works!!!! Despite the cold weather and run in with a car, the battery was still showing 4 lights when I found it. It still works perfectly and charges properly. I'm very impressed. It's only a shame that I ordered another 2 batteries (trying the classics this time for comparison) prior to finding it again so I'm now going to have batteries coming out of my ears. Still, they'll all get used eventually. Brilliant product! If you want an ecig that can stand up to getting run over, this is for you!!! :-)

I like V2 but these batteries are a bit hit and miss. Some of them require you to draw very hard to be able to get any vapour but they still pass the company's test so are not considered faulty. This means no replacement.
TEAM V2 RESPONSE. We spoke to this customer after reading the review and we are in the process of resolving this customer’s problem with the EX Series batteries. For general information one of the major causes of this problem is inadvertently covering the air holes when you hold the battery near the top. If the air holes are covered it will produce a harder draw.
Posted by Unknown on 18th Nov 2016
I love my V2 e-cig although the life expectancy is a bit disappointing. There are other companies that replace your battery when it dies which is a very good deal. Although the e-cigs they sell are not as good looking.

Disappointing battery life
Posted by Doug Poskitt on 19th Aug 2016
I have mixed feelings about these batteries. My initial purchase was via an introductory kit and the two batteries provided lasted a couple of months each. The second pair I ordered did not live up to my expectations. One died on me shortly after using it and the second lasted just one month. Credit to customer service, they sent me a standard V2 battery immediately upon contacting them. However, at the price, I feel that they should be reliable and last at least a couple of months. I will be giving these one last try; I hope it doesn't prove to be three strikes and out, as the e-Liquid and cartridges are great and work well.
Team V2 Response: We agree the batteries should be reliable. We take very seriously any and all quality control issues. When product failure is brought to our attention we immediately deal with and also take it up with our supplier. We never ask our customers to put up with faulty products and take immediate steps to remedy the situation.
If you have any questions or need any help or advice with our products please contact our customers services team on 01733 555 555. You can also email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact number and a suggested time when you are available and we will contact you if you prefer this
Disappointing expected lifespan
Posted by Mark on 5th Mar 2015
Okay - it's 10 months old but my battery has died. I was disappointed to be told that I was lucky it had lasted this long and the expected lifespan of one of these batteries is only 3 or 4 months. I guess it lasted longer because I have more than one and rotate between them.
Have now bought third battery
Posted by Rosalind on 13th Oct 2014
Love the ex battery so much I have just purchased my third one. Brilliant, just brilliant.
Essential battery charge indicator
Posted by Philippe on 21st Aug 2014
The battery looks very classy, even though I've more or less given up on using the cap (it gets a bit dirty under there).
The charge indicator is the best improvement by far. No more guessing or worrying that the battery isn't charged enough when you go out!
prefer button battery
Posted by Unknown on 12th Aug 2014
prefer button battery. stronger
Posted by Jan Bennett on 18th Jul 2014
Been smoking for 40+ years, tried NRT etc. but couldn't quit. Even tried e-cigs (another brand) over twelve months ago to no avail. Then hit on v2 - the Ex series battery is great with long life and knowing how much 'life' is left in the battery well that's just great and the ExBlanks are very good at producing vapour. All in all haven't had a real cig for over a month and haven't even been tempted - RESULT.
I don't usually feel strong enough about a product to write a review but this product is different and the customer service is excellent - Jackie is a credit to herself and the company. There are alot of companies out there who could do with 'Jackies' of their own.
Posted by Rosalind on 19th Jun 2014
This battery ticks all my boxes. V2 deserve great praise for designing a battery that eliminates the guesswork as to how much charge your battery has. In my opinion it's worth every penny. Previously I was charging my two standard batteries every night as I dreaded running out of charge when out & about next day. They probably didn't need charging daily but I had no way of knowing. With the ex battery the magic little lights let me know how much charge I have left, I now charge ex battery every 3/4 days & best of all there is no loss of power as charge diminishes, it as good on 1 light as it is on 5 lights. Fit an ex cartridge & you have total control,know exactly how much charge & exactly how much is left in cartridge. Flavour, power as good & strong at throughout the whole gaping experience. It's a no brainer.
Best Vapour and Design!
Posted by John on 28th Apr 2014
The EX Batteries last a quite a while, but that is the least important thing about them. The little lights on the tip of the cigarette that tell you how much the battery is charged are amazing. I would constantly take multiple batteries or the portable charger with me because I was always worried about it losing charge. Now I can take one puff and know whether I'll need to charge it more during the day. Also the sleeve helps with the vapor production immensely. My only wish is that maybe you came out with a tiny accessory kit or brush for cleaning the sleeve and the metal threads, I keep cartridges and the battery in my lighter pocket and occasionally I will get lint on it in the place where the battery joins the cartridge.
Great new battery
Posted by Chuck on 28th Apr 2014
I received these EX Batteries about a week ago and have been very satisfied with them. I also like how you can see how much charge is left by the indicator light at the end of the battery. Well done V2!!
Exceptional Style & Performance
Posted by Ron Baker on 28th Apr 2014
The new EX Battery is a great step forward in battery life and style. The battery looks and feels solid while remaining light. I love the sleeve that fits over the cartage which gives a sleek uniform look.
Indicator lights at the end of this battery light up when drawing or charging, easily showing available power. I have used the new EX for a month and am ready to buy more. With 5 different styles to choose from I can match my mood and clothes.
Excellent life and vapor production.
