V2 Cigs has quickly grown to be one of the largest electronic cigarette and accessories companies in the United States.

Experienced vapor smokers have found that by making the switch to refilling their own,they also cut down significantly on the waste created from empty e cig cartridges as an added benefit to refilling cartridges.
What is V2 Cigs Platinum E Liquid?
V2 Cigs E Liquid is officially branded V2 Cigs Platinum E-Liquid by the company and is the nicotine (or nicotine free) solution used to create the vapor in an e cigarette. The new Platinum e-liquid is designed to allow customers to refill a used V2 cartridge or to purchase a blank V2 cartridge and fill on your own to start with.
Why Do V2 Cigs Customers Use E Liquid?
V2 Cigs Platinum e liquid is perfect for the vapor smoker who is a heavy product user and goes through cartridges quickly. It is less expensive to refill your own cartridges with the pre-made smoke juice as compared to purchasing pre-fills. Also,filling your own cartridges gives the customer more control over the overall product performance,commonly resulting in a better taste,throat hit,and ultimately more vapor.
How Many Times Can a V2 Cartridge Be Refilled?
It really depends on a number of factors such as the voltage of the battery,type of e liquid,and personal style. Most cartridges can be used from between 5 and 20 times according to V2 Cigs (5 is the recommended magic number of times to refill a blank with 20 being the maximum number of usable times reported by some V2 cigs customers. Johnson Creek (competing Smoke Juice producer) recommends 5-6 times for your reference). A good technique to extend the life of your cartridges is to never let them completely dry out. Once dry,the cartridge can ultimate burn and taste horrible. Once a cartridge does have a burnt taste,it should no longer be used. A cartridge that is considered well-saturated should last for a day or more based on the frequency of use by the consumer. If you mix flavors in a cartridge that is either not yet empty or that you have not cleaned,the flavors will mix creating a unique taste.
Should You Clean Your V2 Cigs Cartridges Before Refilling?
It depends. Some vapor smokers will clean their cartridges to change the flavor or extend the cartridge life. V2 has not published an official method of cleaning the cartridges out at the time of this writing;however,mentions washing,cleaning,or boiling the cartridge. Other vapor smokers will swear by keeping the same flavor in the same cartridge to eliminate the overhead of having to clean out multiple cartridges.
