V2 Cigs Standard Plus Kit Review - E-cigarette Starter Kit Review

If you're looking for a really excellent e-cigarette starter kit, and one that's not overpriced, then the V2 Standard Plus Kit from V2 Cigs is definitely a great choice. It comes with everything you need to start vaping right away, is fully customizable, and allows you to stay charged while on the go! It truly is an awesome e-cig kit.

I've done a lot of e-cigarette starter kit reviews on this site so far, but I've yet to do a review on the new V2 Standard Plus Kit (V2 Cigs released it just two months ago). But since this particular kit has become so popular among vapers, I figure it's about time I do it justice and finally write a full review on it.

So without further ado, here we go...

V2 Standard Plus Kit Review - About The Kit

The V2 Standard Plus Kit (from V2 Cigs) comes with everything you'll need to start vaping immediately. The kit is also fully customizable, which means that you can totally customize it to suit your liking! You can choose your e-cig battery colors, your charging case color, which vaping flavors you want, etc.

For example, you can choose the color of your batteries (White, Black, Stainless Steel or Metallic Blue), the size of your batteries (Standard, Shorty or Long), the color of your portable charging case (Silver, Graphite or White), which vaping flavors you want (several choices, see below), as well as which nicotine strength you prefer (several choices, listed below).

As mentioned above, the V2 Standard Plus Kit comes with everything you need to get your vape on right away. I'll give a rundown of the starter kit's features and accessories below, but if you want to, you can always just jump to the official V2 Cigs page for it here.

But if you want to find out how well it stacks up, what the kit includes, and how well it performs, then do read on...

What The V2 Standard Plus Kit Includes

Here's what comes in the V2 Standard Plus Kit:

1 V2 Automatic Battery
1 V2 Manual Battery
10 (ten) V2 Flavor Cartridges
1 Wall Adapter
1 NEW Smart Charger (a USB e-cigarette charger)
1 NEW Portable Charging Case (perfect for keeping your batteries charged while on the go!)
1 V2 Manual
A Lifetime Warranty (the V2 Cigs Lifetime Warranty is by far the best in the industry!)

Vapor Production

Vapor production of the V2 Standard Plus Kit is most excellent. It produces a really nice, thick cloud of vapor, and with no effort at all. It definitely has a really smooth draw to it.

Bottom line, you can expect lots of vapor, as well as a really great "throat hit". Also, there's no harshness at all; it's totally smooth and satisfying. So yeah, we really love this one!

With its smooth draw and great vapor production, you'll be hard-pressed to find another e-cig brand that matches this kind of quality, performance and overall reliability. We kid you not!

E-cigarette Flavor Cartridge Options

The V2 Standard Plus Kit comes with two (2) flavor cartridge 5-Packs. These 5-Packs equal 10 flavor cartridges in total, which is equivalent to 10 packs of cigarettes!

You can choose which vaping flavors you want for each 5-Pack, as well as your preferred nicotine strength or strengths.

V2 Cigs currently offers the following delicious vaping flavors:

• V2 Red - an American tobacco flavored vape
• Menthol - a refreshing mint-flavored vape
• Sahara - a delicious Turkish tobacco flavored vape
• Chocolate - a yummy and rich chocolate-flavored vape
• Vanilla - a smooth and delicious vanilla-flavored vape
• Coffee - a super-tasty coffee-flavored vape
• Peppermint - a sweet, refreshing peppermint-flavored vape
• Cherry - a luscious, cherry-flavored vape
• Mint Tea - a Chinese green tea and mint flavored vape
• Congress - a refined tobacco-flavored vape

Nicotine Level Options

With the V2 Standard Plus Kit from V2 Cigs you can also choose your preferred nicotine level in your flavor cartridges. This way, you can start vaping with the same amount of nicotine that you're used to smoking with your traditional tobacco cigarettes. Or, you can start off with less nicotine, which isn't uncommon at all.

V2 Cigs offers the following nicotine level options:

18 Full
12 Medium
6 Light
0 Zero - ZERO nicotine

NOTE: It's quite normal for your preferred nicotine level to drop over time when vaping. In fact, many smokers who've switched to e-cigarettes eventually find themselves vaping with Zero nicotine cartridges and e-liquid. :)

Also Included In The V2 Standard Plus Starter Kit

Aside from your e-cigarette batteries and flavor cartridges, the V2 Standard Plus Kit also comes with the new V2 Portable Charging Case, the V2 Smart Charger, and the V2 Wall Adapter.

Here's what they look like...

V2 Portable Charging Case (your choice of Silver, Graphite or White)

V2 Smart USB Charger and Wall Adapter

V2 Batteries (your choice of White, Black, Stainless Steel or Metallic Blue)

V2 Portable Charging Case Features

The new V2 Portable Charging Case from V2 Cigs is undoubtedly one of the best e-cigarette charging cases available to vapers today. It's slimmer than a pack of cigarettes, and allows you to charge up to 4 e-cigarette batteries...even when you're away from an actual power source!

Here are the V2 Portable Charging Case's main features:

Slim and ergonomic design - fits right in the palm of your hand!
Easy, slide-open cover.
Screw-on battery charging (so you know your batteries are connected for charging).
Indicator lights tell you how much charge is available in the case.
Accurate charge readings of your batteries. The lights change when your batteries are charged completely.
Extra space to carry an extra e-cig battery, or 2 extra e-cig flavor cartridges.
Charges up to 4 V2 batteries, even when you're not near a power source!
Connects to any standard USB port.
Compatible with the V2 Wall Adapter (included) and the V2 Car Adapter.

Overall Impressions

The V2 Standard Plus Kit is far and away one of the best e-cigarette starter kits you can get your hands on today. And honestly, it's trumped only by two other starter kits - the V2 Traveler Kit and the V2 Ultimate Kit.

Those starter kits are priced at a just bit more (and totally worth it!), but if you're just starting out with vaping, or looking to spend a little less, then the V2 Standard Plus Kit is definitely an excellent choice. It truly is awesome. So yeah, we highly recommend it.

Here's a quick review rundown:

Vapor Production: Excellent. Smooth and thick. 
Appearance: Looks cool and sleek.
Product Quality: Excellent. Above most other starter kits.
Reliability: Excellent. No fails at all!
Warranty: Excellent. Full Lifetime Warranty!
Shipping: FREE! The flat-rate shipping option is totally free.
E-liquid Batch Test Reports: Yes. Free via email.


In summation, you can't go wrong with the V2 Standard Plus Kit. It truly is a great e-cigarette product all around. The performance is awesome. The vapor production is awesome. The reliability is awesome. And the Lifetime Warranty is awesome.

Of course, when it comes to V2 Cigs and their products, nothing less is to be expected...which is why they've become the most popular, trusted and loved e-cigarette brand on the market today.

Honestly, my only wish/suggestion is that they offer more color choices/patterns for their e-cigarette batteries. While the current color choices are great, I'd definitely like to see even more choices available. Of course, knowing V2 Cigs, and how hard they work to please their customers, I'm sure that's not far off. :)

So check out the V2 Standard Plus Kit and see what you think! ;)

And as always... Happy vaping!

White Cloud Cirrus 3 Starter Kit Review

NOTE: We do not recommend White Cloud Cigarettes for a variety of reasons.

Brands we DO recommend are: Halo Cigs, V2 Cigs and Volcanoecigs...

With so many e-cigarette starter kits to choose from, it's hard to figure out which are worth your money and which are not. Based on things like performance, reliability, customer reviews and product warranties, our top picks are the three mentioned above.

White Cloud Cirrus 3 Starter Kit Review

The White Cloud Cirrus 3 Starter Kit is the smallest and lightest Cirrus they've ever made. In fact, it's even shorter than a non-filtered cigarette.

The Cirrus 3 Starter Kit (pictured with Classic White batteries)

What Comes In The White Cloud Cirrus 3 Starter Kit

The Cirrus 3 by White Cloud Cigarettes comes with the following:

3 rechargeable batteries (each with your choice of classic white finish or brushed metal finish and grey ash tip, crystal tip or blackout tip)
5 SmoothDraw Cartridges
1 Squid Charger
1 AC adapter
Standard 6 month warranty

Some Quick Technical Facts...

The Squid Charger (Included)

Also included in the Cirrus 3 Starter Kit is the Squid Charger, a USB e-cigarette charger that allows you to charge three (3) e-cig batteries all at the same time. With the Squid Charger you can charge all three of your batteries simultaneously, and in the same amount of time that it would take to charge just one battery.

The White Cloud Squid Charger - A USB E-cigarette Charger

Just plug the Squid Charger into a USB port to charge your batteries. Charge one, charge two, or charge all three batteries at the same time. The battery charge time is somewhere around 60 minutes or more.

Note: The Squid Charger is compatible with all White Cloud e-cigarette batteries. So, if you already have a White Cloud starter kit (e.g., the Cirrus 3x Starter Kit, the Cirrus Variety Kit, or the Cirrus II Starter Kit), you can buy the Squid Charger separately and use it to charge your e-cig batteries. Just look for it in the White Cloud "Accessories" section.

The Squid Charger also comes with the White Cloud Phantom Kit.

SmoothDraw Cartridge Flavors

White Cloud Cigarettes allows you to customize your starter kit by offering several different e-cigarette cartridge flavors from which you can choose.

The current e-cig SmoothDraw Cartridge flavor options are:

• Tobacco Flavor - A tobacco flavored vape. If you like regular tobacco flavor, then this one is probably for you.
• Menthol Flavor - A refreshing and cooling menthol flavor, with a real menthol tobacco feel!
• Vanilla Flavor - A delicious vanilla flavored vape. True to taste...and delicious. If you like vanilla, then you should definitely enjoy this vaping flavor.
• Espresso Flavor - Like espresso and coffee? Then you'll certainly love this one. It's a delicious espresso flavored vape that even leaves the delicious taste of coffee in your mouth! :)
• Chocolate Flavor - A chocolate flavored vape. According to customer reviews, the chocolate flavor was kinda weak. So I wouldn't suggest this flavor...at least not until White Cloud reworks it.
• Clove Flavor - A lovely clove flavored vape. No question, this tastes exactly like a clove cigarette! So if you like clove cigarettes, then be sure to get this flavor! :)
• Strawberry Flavor - A strawberry flavored vape. Tastes like fresh strawberries.
• Kick Flavor - A delicious honey and cinnamon vape. The cinnamon comes through quite nicely and really mixes well the honey. If you love honey and cinnamon, then this might just be one of your favorites!
• Snap Flavor - Think chocolate chip mint ice cream! A refreshing melange of frosty mint leaves, muddled with cacao beans. Yummy!
• Moscow Mule Flavor - The first "limited edition" flavor from White Cloud. It's a hip cocktail of chilled spirits, with a kick of ginger and a twist of lime.
• Apache Flavor - With a salt-of-the-earth attitude (and taste), this bold tobacco flavor is for those who think light cigarettes are useless.
• Bora Bora Flavor - The mild, yet intriguing flavor of finely cured tobacco (imported from exotic ports of call). Bora Bora will appeal to those who enjoy a sweet, mellow flavor to wash off a stressful day.
• Lime and Coconut Flavor - Celebrate summer with this lime and coconut flavor. Like the name suggests, it's a tropical cocktail of limes, liquors and a splash of sweet coconut.
• Apple Flavor - Fresh to the core, and with a true green apple flavor, this one is a favorite of many vapers. If you love apples, then this one is definitely for you!
• Peach Flavor - With the juicy, fresh taste of a Georgia peach (but without the fuzz), the peach flavor is sweet and yummy, just like you'd expect it to be.

Vapor Jackets (E-cig Battery Wraps)

Sure, White Cloud Cigarettes do offer a great selection of Vapor Jackets (colorful and easy-to-apply "wraps" for your e-cig batteries - as seen above), but all in all, it's not the best bang for your buck in our opinion.

If you want an awesome vaping product that's well worth your time and money, then we suggest you take a look at either Halo Cigs, V2 Cigs or Volcanoecigs. They all rock, and are definitely well worth it.

Happy vaping!
