V2 Pro Series 7 E-Liquid Review
V2 Series 3 vs the Series 7 for E-Liquid:
So we vaped the Series 7 using its e-liquid cartridge for a couple of days on and off. Overall we were pretty impressed with the vape. it is a marked improvement over the Series 3 when it comes to e-liquid. The vapor and flavor is a lot better compared with the Series 3. Running on the 1800mAh battery (Series 3 had 650 mAh) it lasts quite a bit longer than its predecessor. It is slightly heavier than the Series 3 due to the liquid capacity (2.5ml over the 1.6ml the Series 3 had). Having the three different voltage modes is great to have for different vaping scenarios.
The draw on the Series 7 is a little looser than the Series 3s draw, but still tight enough for a nice mouth to lung inhale. You won’t really be able to lung inhale on the Series 7, but it makes for a very nice mouth to lung.
The vapor is much improved on the Series-7 when compared to the Series 3. As you can see in the video you get decent amounts of vapor which makes for a really nice throat hit on 12mg e-juice. The vapor obviously isn’t as big as something you would get on a sub ohm vaping clearomizer, but it makes for a good vape.
The flavor was much better on the Series 7. This was a big improvement and we really enjoyed the flavor we got on the series 7.
So the battery on the Series 7 is a 1800mAh battery. It is almost three times the power of that on the series 3, so you will get much more battery life from your series 7. The battery life will depend on how much you vape the series 7, but you should be able to get a couple days worth of vaping if you are just using the e-liquid cart. The bigger battery does however make the series 7 a big bigger and wider than the series 3 as you can see in the video.
So the Series 7 features variable voltage which again is another marked improvement over the series 3. to change the voltage hit the power button twice and the lights will then change. Wait until the lights are at your desired voltage level and then hit the button again to stay at that voltage. The first voltage level is 3.7V then 4.2V and finally 4.7V. This gives you some control over how you vape your e-liquid and means you can adjust the voltage to find your suited voltage. Setting the voltage higher, will usually result in more vapor and a warmer vape.
E-liquid Tank Capacity
Lastly the V2 Pro Series 7 features a 2.5ml e-liquid cartridge/tank. This is quite a bit bigger than the 1.6ml tank that featured on the series 3 and will last you a decent time before you will need to re-fill.
Negatives and Conclusion of Vaping E-Liquid on the Pro Series 7
The Series 7 vapes really well for e-liquids, and is great for a mouth to lung style inhale. However, I don’t think I would purchase it just for vaping e-liquid. The vaping cartridges are quite pricey at $13, but will probably last you quite a long time before you will need a new one. I am guessing you will get a good few weeks of vaping from one e-liquid cart (we have only been using it for a couple of days so can’t say too much on this). I think for its price point I wouldn’t purchase the Series 7 just for e-liquid vaping, but instead for its “3 in 1” capability, making it an all in one device. If you vape both dry herbs and e-liquids I would highly recommend the Series 7 and it will perform very well both. It is one of the only 3 in 1 devices on the market and by far the best of them and a marked improvement on the Pro Series 3.
V2 Pro Series 7 Dry Herb Review
3 Different Temperature Settings
As mentioned above the Series 7 dry herb oven has 3 different temperature settings: 200,210 and 225 degrees Celsius. We found the lowest setting was just about right for how we like our dry herb. When using the medium setting the herb didn’t last as long as the lower setting before it got quite charred. For that reason we didn’t even attempt the highest setting as for me that is just too hot for how I like to vape my dry herb. The Pax 2 for instance even at it’s highest temperature only goes up to 216 degrees Celsius and its medium setting is around 193 degrees. I would recommend using the lowest setting if you want a slightly longer session as this will preserve the herbs the best. The oven does a very good job of evenly heating up the herbs, but I would still recommend half way through the session to give the herbs a little mix around with the dabber before hitting again.
So the oven size on the Series 7 is a lot bigger than that of the Series 3. You can get around 0.2 to 0.4g in the oven whereas the series 3 only held around 0.1g. This is a positive in my opinion as you can have a longer session from one oven load of dry herb. We got around 20-30 hits from a fullish oven when using the lowest temperature setting. When using the medium temperature setting we found the herb wasn’t preserved as long as we would have liked.
The oven heats up ridiculously quickly and only takes 30 seconds to reach its temperature. This was really impressive and you can start vaping your herb very quickly!
V2 Pro Series 3 vs the V2 Pro Series 7 for Dry Herb:
So my brother and I did two oven loads of proper dry herb on the Series 7 and I’ll let you know what we thought of it below.
So we got through around 1 and half hours of vaping until the battery died using the lowest temperature setting for the dry herb oven. This is a lot better than that of the Series 3, so that is an improvement, but it doesn’t quite compete with the Pax 2 which we reviewed earlier. I think the PAX 2 has a 3000mAh battery compared to the 1800mAh one on the V2 Pro Series 7.
The series 7 features a 150s cut off time, so if you don’t use the device for that long, it will automatically turn off.
The Series 7 comes with a cleaning brush and dabber tool for you to clean the oven. I would recommend you do so after every few sessions and the the oven is fairly easy to clean. The oven itself is fairly easy to clean, but I couldn’t get off the filter on the mouthpiece to give that a clean. I’m guessing this doesn’t come off and therefore at some point will become a bit congested and you will have to get a replacement cartridge.
Mouthpiece and Draw
The mouthpiece is quite big and detracts slightly away from the stealthiness of the V2 pro series 7. It is nothing major but perhaps one thing to improve on in the future. The draw is quite a tight draw but slightly looser than the very tight one on the Series 3. It is a little tighter than the Pax 2 for example so is therefore not great for anyone who wants to rip on it. The draw is best for slow sipping style draws.
Vaping the Wax Cartridge on the Series 7
The wax cart hasn’t yet been released. It will provide the Series 7 with another vaping option making it one of the most versatile vaporizers on the market and with no doubt the best “3 in 1” we have come across so far.
Negatives and Conclusion of Vaping the V2 Pro Series 7 Loose Leaf Cartridge
So my only negatives were, that I would have liked an additional lower temperature setting. I find the higher temp settings are a little to high for how I like my weed, so we stuck to the lowest setting which was just right for how we like it. The mouthpiece is slightly on the larger side and as mentioned above makes the Series 7 slightly less stealthy then the Series 3 or the Pax 2.
Overall the dry herb experience on the V2 Pro Series 7 was really good. A very solid dry herb vape for a portable device. It is a marked improvement over the Series 3 in terms of the dry herb vaping and the bigger oven and different temperature settings were nice improvements. The bigger and better battery also is a positive and means you will not have to charge it as often as the series 3. At its price point the V2 Series 7 is a good choice if you want a good portable vape, that also has that option of having the e-liquid or wax cartridges.
If you are looking for a versatile vaporizer that has the capability to vape e-liquids, dry herbs and waxes then the Series 7 is the number one choice on the market. It is a major improvement over the Series 3 and well worth considering even if you do already have a Series 3. The bigger oven for the loose leaf cart, the different temp settings, as well as the much improved battery life, means that it is well worth upgrading to from the original Series 3. The Series 3 does however remain for portable and stealthy. Overall we were very impressed so far with the Series 7 and it will be interesting to see how it holds up over time.
