V2 Cigs Shuts Its Doors: How To Find Compatible Refills

V2 Cigs Shuts Its Doors: How To Find Compatible Refills

V2 Cigs, a leading maker of cigalike vapes, has been shut down permanently.


Sadly for fans of the brand, we won’t be seeing any new V2 products, nor will we be getting anymore V2 branded refill cartridges or replacement parts.


For those who don’t want to give up on their V2 Cigs just yet, we have a few options for V2 compatible refills and other accessories that can keep you puffing on your favorite V2 electronic cigarettes.


But first, let’s take a look at the question on everyone’s mind…


What Happened To V2 Cigs?


Despite their apparent popularity, V2 Cigs closed their doors permanently at the end of 2018.


A statement released by the company in November 2018 cited new tariffs imposed by the United States on Chinese imports and unsustainable losses from previous quarters as the reason for the decision.


However, a bit of sleuthing into V2 Cigs’ corporate history reveals a different story. The company was acquired by JUUL Labs in October 2018, just one month before ceasing operations.


This had led many to speculate that JUUL, the largest electronic cigarette company in the United States, purchased V2 Cigs with the intention of shuttering the company.

What Does This Mean For V2 Cigs Customers?

First and foremost, if you want to keep using your V2 Cigs e-cig, you’re not totally out of luck. You won’t be able to get V2’s name brand vapes, batteries, e-juices, refill cartridges, or other accessories, but there are several products on the market which are compatible.


For customers concerned about their recent orders or data, V2 issued a statement addressing this shortly before their closure. To quote it:


  • All orders submitted to V2 after November 1, 2018 will be refunded. The orders will not be shipped.
  • The 30-day refund guarantee ends completely on December 1, 2018.
  • V2’s Vape4Free program is now ended.
  • V2 is going to retain personal customer information until the end of the required retention period. After the retention period ends, all personal information will be destroyed.
  • V2 Compatible Refills, Cartridges, And Accessories


    Thankfully for V2 fans, V2’s e-cigs use a standard threading for their batteries and cartridges. That means there are plenty of compatible options for replacement parts!


    This thread size is the most important factor in compatibility. V2 Cigs use 808 threads.


    That means that the majority refill cartridges with 808 threads will work just fine in your V2 Cigs.


    Since V2 is gone, their refill cartridges, along with their unique flavors, are unfortunately gone completely. But don’t despair! An old favorite might be gone, but a new chance to experiment takes its place!


    For those who’ve invested in V2 batteries and chargers and don’t want to give them up, you have two main options for refills:


  • Find compatible refill cartridges pre-filled from a manufacturer. Any cigalike refill cartridges with 808 threads should work with your V2 Cig batteries. This is the closest way to emulate the old style of purchasing V2 refill cartridges.
  • Get some refillable cartridges and your own e-juice. You can find empty cartridges for fairly cheap. Just make sure they have 808 threads and you should be good to go. You can fill these empty cartridges with just about any e-liquid your heart desires. This is the best way to really experiment and see what varieties are out there!

    Finding A New Groove


    You might be a bit disappointed that your favorite V2 e-juice refill isn’t going to be on the market anymore. That’s understandable, but we’ve got the remedy.


    All you need to do is have a taste of a few of our seemingly endless variety of e-juice flavors.


    With e-juices spanning candy and dessert flavored treats to tasty tropical sensations to delectable tobacco flavors and everything in between, finding something to replace your favorite V2 e-juice will be short work.


    Whether you’re looking for something to replace your cigarette habit or just a fun way to unwind, there’s an e-juice for every purpose. You can even include something novel like caffeine, opt for a refreshing menthol blend, or exert exacting control over your nicotine content.


    Compared to being stuck with whatever V2 felt like putting in a refill cartridge, that’s a lot of freedom!

    Moving On From V2 Cigs


    Eventually, a time will come when V2 batteries and chargers start to fail. At that point, sadly enough, V2 products will be completely gone.


    For now, refill cartridges can keep your V2 in the game. But it doesn’t hurt to think about what you’ll do after V2.


    Many users of cigalikes adopt them in an effort to quit smoking cigarettes. Right down to the appearance of the vape, V2 Cigs went out of their way to emulate the cigarette smoking experience.


    These days, there are no shortage of vapes that can do everything V2 did or better. Fans of V2’s small profile and lightweight design will enjoy the portability and convenience of small vape pens which can easily slip into a pocket or disappear into a purse.


    Something like the ever-popular JUUL Starter Kit is an excellent way to break into a more “proper” vape that sets aside the cigalike style for a modern feel.


    If you want to step up your vaping game and get a heavy duty vape that can generate some serious clouds, you’ll want to look into various mod and tank setups.


    These can be quite a bit more expensive than simple e-cigs or vape pens, but they offer a huge degree of control over your vaping experience.


    Advanced vapes allow you to control the temperature to dial in the perfect hit, easily refill huge stores of your favorite e-juices, and even customize the appearance and inner working for a truly personalized device.

    Ciao, V2 Cigs!

    So, a quick summary for V2 Cigs users who want to keep soldiering on:


  • Your V2 batteries have 808 threads. That means any refill cartridge with 808 threads should work.
  • Experiment with filling your own cartridges. Empty cartridges are cheap and this gives you an excellent chance to experiment with different flavors and active ingredients.
  • V2 is closed permanently. The company is dissolved. They will not be coming back.
  • Your V2 battery won’t work forever. Take a look at some other options for vape pens, tanks and mods, or other ways to replace your V2 setup when it eventually fails.
