The V2 PRO Series 3 (called OCB vap in Europe) is a highly advertised and very popular vape pen and there’s a big chance that you’ve already heard a lot about it. But does it live up to the hype? We definitely think so and we believe that it’s a great versatile vaporizer for most vapers out there. It looks great, it’s reasonably priced, its magnetic docking makes it easy to use, and it can vape pretty much everything,
V2 PRO Series 3 quick review
V2 company pretty much dominates the market of vape pens. It’s the largest retailer of vape pens and e-cigarettes on the internet and they have been around for quite some time now. The Pro Series 3 is one of their most popular products and it’s ranked as one of the best multi-functional vape pens on our website. It can handle e-liquids, dry herbs, waxes, oils, and it’s particularly popular among medical marijuana users.
Considering the affordable price, we believe that it’s a great vape kit for starters who are looking for something powerful and easy to use, and for vapers who want to have a multi functional vaporizer in a small and convenient package. The kit costs $59.99 and for that you will get one PRO Series 3 vape pen, USB charging cable, user manual, and one e-liquid cartridge. Additional e-liquid cartridges cost $8, and cartridges for dry herbs and waxes cost $25.
Three designs to choose from
The V2 PRO Series 3 is available in three different designs (black, blue, and stainless steel). We like the black version the most, but that’s just a matter of personal preference. The whole pen measures a little over 5.5 inches in length and a little less than 0.7 inches in diameter, so it’s quite discrete and easy to be carried around.
This unit utilizes magnetic coupling that makes it quite simple and easy to use. You can forget unscrewing and screwing the cartridge every time you need to change it and you can also forget searching for the small USB port late at night when you run out of battery. Simply snap magnetic USB cable or magnetic cartridge onto the pen and that’s it.
The downside of magnetic coupling is that attachments are unique and you won’t be able to interchange parts with accessories of other e-cigarette brands. However, accessories and spare parts of the PRO Series 3 are quite affordable, so there’s no need to use anything else but original parts.
How to use it
If you are a newbie in the vaping scene and you are just looking for something easy to use, the PRO Series 3 is the right choice. To start vaping simply snap in the cartridge, press on the button in the middle three times to turn it on, press on it again to activate the heating and you can start vaping right away.
When you activate the pen, you will notice the white light reminding you that you are ready to vape. When you turn it off, the light will turn red so you will have no problem using it in the dark.
The size of cartridges for e-liguids is about 1.6ml which is more than enough for most vapers. We haven’t experienced any leakage during the 30-days test and we have refilled the cartridge about 15 times (Red with 1.8% nicotine and Vanilla with 0.6% nicotine).
Another great feature of this vape pen is that you can use it while it’s charging. The USB charging cord is about 32 inches long which is comparable with most smartphone charging cords.
Overall the PRO Series 3 is a great vape pen for the money. It gives a great vapor production, it’s compact, and quite powerful. When we started testing it, we knew that it’s very hyped up and we were expecting some hidden downsides of it, but we were wrong. It does everything great and we couldn’t ask for more from a multi functional vape pen in a similar price range. Although the battery could last a little bit longer, that would be too much to ask for.
Unfortunately the e-liquid isn’t included in the package and you will have to buy it as an addition. There’s one e-liquid cartridge included and it should easily last for over 30 refills if you maintain it properly (refill it when it reaches about 25% of capacity left). A new e-liquid cartridge will cost you about $8 while cartridge for dry herbs or waxes will cost you about $25.
The cartridges are refillable and can be used with all V2 e-liquids. If you are new to the vaping scene, V2 now offers 6 bottles in a single package. If you don’t know what flavor suits you best, you can choose between Tobacco/menthol sampler (V2 Red, Sahara, Congress, V2 Menthol, Peppermint and Green Tea Menthol), and Specialty sampler (Grape, Cherry, Chocolate, Coffee, Vanilla and V2 Cola). Or you can buy a single flavor at once of course.
