Jacvapour Vgo2 VV e cigarette (Ecig) review

Published: 15th Feb 2013

The Best Electronic Cigarette

This is a review of Jacvapour's newest product, the Vgo2 Variable Voltage purchased from http://www.jacvapour.com/. Check out my video review for a more in depth look.

As you might have seen in a number of our other reviews, we are big fans of Jacvapour here at the-best-electronic-cigarette.com, we love their products and equally their outstanding customer service. So I was excited to hear they were launching a variable voltage Vgo2, which was already one of our favourite performance e cigarettes that we have reviewed.

As usual, there are some customisation options with this product being the choice of battery capacity (400 or 650mah for an additional £3.00), battery colour (black and silver) and flavour and strength of cartomizers. You can also opt for a USB to mains charging adapter for an additional £2.49.

Presentation box / packaging

Jacvapour have done away with the latest branding for this product and have opted for a small travel pouch which has a JAC branded silver plaque on the top and is opened via a zip. 

 

Included in the box are the following:

  • 2 x batteries 400 or 650mah (black of silver)
  • 1 x nova tank (replaceable coils) these hold 2ml of e-liquid
  • 1 x USB charger
  • 3 replacement coils 2.8, 2.4, 1.8ohms
  • 1 x manual

"I didn't want to put the Vgo2 VV down.....it looks great and the variable voltage system works like a dream"

Jacvapour Vgo2 Variable Voltage

Battery

As mentioned above, there are two options available in terms of the battery capacity, a 400mah which is the one I opted for or the larger 650. I prefer the size of the 400mah version (74mm battery only), as the product is not particularly small anyway. As you can see in the video review and the pictures, the silver set up looks great, especially if you treat yourself to one of the silver drip tips JAC has now started selling (£1.99). 

Obviously the main feature of this product is the variable voltage system which is controlled via a dial on the base of the battery. The voltage is set by turning the dial and lining up the red marker with the desired voltage from 3.3v to 4.8v. The dial turns smoothly making for a quality feel. 

I was getting approximately 4hrs out of the 400mah, which was slightly less than the Mini Vgo which has the same battery, but I put this down to the constant playing around with the voltage setting......which is very addictive. The battery light on the button will flash 3 times to indicate the need for charging and I was finding that it was taking approximately 3hrs to charge fully. 

The batteries also operate the 5 button press disable/activate feature now common on performance e cigarettes.

Switch (responsiveness)

Thankfully all the additional gadgets have not affected the switch on the Vgo range. Upon pressing of the button you can immediately hear it kick up and the switch responds swiftly with the lightest of draws. A classic case of......if it's not broke......then don't fix it!

JacVapour Vgo2 VV Nova tank

Vaping performance 

As the nova tanks come empty, you first need to add your e-liquid. This is done by unscrewing the top metal part of the tank from the glass chamber. Then gently fill the chamber with your e-liquid around the centre post up to the 2ml mark. Then re-attached the top metal part.  I think the nova tanks look great and complement the silver battery perfectly. Jacvapour state that the nova tanks can be re-filled up top 15-20 times, but I found they lasted a little longer. The instructions state that after filling with e-liquid you should wait approx 30 mins to let the e-liquid saturate the wick inside the chamber.....but I gave it 10mins as I couldn't be bothered waiting any longer. After the wait, screw the tank to the battery and your good to go. 

In terms of the perfomance, i started on the lowest 3.3v and the Vgo2 was a joy to use. Whilst the throat hit was relatively subtle (I was using the 16mg strength JAC e-liquid) it produced loads of vapour clouds and I could have used it at that level happily. When set at 3.8v I found only a marginal difference in terms of vapour production but the throat hit was a little stronger. When I selected the 4.2v, the first thing I noticed was the draws became tighter, the throat hit harsher again and even more vapour clouds. I briefly used the Vgo2 VV at 4.8v but I found that this was simply too harsh for me as the throat kick nearly made my eyes water! But, throughout all of the levels I thought the product was simply brilliant. 

Another great element of the nova tanks is that the coils are replaceable, and at £1.99 each, they are far more affordable than a new tank. To replace the coil, make sure tha tank is empty and unscrew the bottom part and remove the centre post. Then unscrew the coil which is the top part of the centre post and replace it with a new one. Re-insert the centre post into the glass chamber and re-attach the bottom metal part of the tank and that's it.....easy.

‚ÄčAnother 1st class product from Jacvapour. The Vgo2 VV looks fantastic and the variable voltage system works perfectly delivering a smooth transition throughout the voltage range. Another quality product from the boys at Jacvapour.
