    Hahaha, it is 24% off I think! I bought one too and it arrived today. Question for quickdraw users, does something sort of jiggle around inside your unit? above the button?

    I ordered one of these (the V2 Pro S3 - can't find the QD in the UK) on thursday and it arrived today. I've been after a pen vape for years, and still got a while to wait for a bug free grasshopper, and well, they are cheap at around £65 with the dry herb cart.

    I'm pleasantly surprised! it's well constructed, feels good in the hand and most importantly, it actually works and vapourises! I know others have confirmed that anyway but still, it surprised me given my experiences with atmos etc.

    I'd describe the vapour as being very close to what the MFLB produces - but without the learning curve. They both take a similar amount too although the MFLB can hold a bit more. The first 2 hits taste great and then quickly turns to ABV flavour as you'd expect with a conduction vape. I can get around 10 draws from an oven (8-10 seconds each), starting as fairly whispy vapour but then by hit 3 you can really draw clouds from this thing.

    Herb comes out a nice dark brown and i'd say this is very efficient based on the effects. 2 ovens over an hour and I can get wrecked (with the right source material), 1 is just right for being active :)

    Time will tell on cleaning/reliability etc and this won't become my daily driver (it doesnt beat my EQ :) ) but this will definitely replace my MFLB in most situations now.

    By the way, I tried this bubbler yesterday and it worked perfectly. Huge clouds!!! No special connection needed, it makes a tight enough connection with the rubber mouthpiece. http://www.dhgate.com/product/pinna...t/184494946.html#myaccount_orderdetail-1-null

    Also my initial review of this product is that it is great! Without the water tool there is quite a bit of resistance and one the built in screen gets a bit gummed up I am a little worried that the draw will be too tight but it is great for sipping and it really gets you medicated nicely.

    The green light at the bottom is a bit bright for stealth use but I might play around with some ways to darken it. IMO the green light should notify you it is heated but then fade off after a few seconds.

    Wish I could edit but it is not available if a mod wants to add this for me above that would be great.

    Add: Had it for 3 days, it started burning my herb yesterday, tried both carts same results so it is a problem with the unit. I guess it is not better then the v2 series 3, gotta go through the hassle of a return now with vapeworld, hope it goes smoothly, will keep you all up to date.

    I live in California. What cannabis liquid concentrate should I buy for the V2? Can I make a tincture myself to vape?

    I've have the S3 for about a week now, and I'm ready to review it. Before you read further, let me tell you to start with that I couldn't love it more. Despite a few small flaws, it's exactly what I'm looking for. Just some background on me, I vape on the weekends, practically every weekend for the past 3 years or so, so my tolerance is relatively high, but not to the point of everyday smokers. I've used a lot of vapes before, including the Pax 2 and Davinci, and I would say the S3 is up there with both of them for what it is.

    First off, my order. As we all know, V2 customer service sucks. It's plain and simple, but you can get over it. Luckily, I haven't had any problems yet, so I'll have to wait and see. I initially placed this order in February, but promptly cancelled it the next day when I found out the LL cart was backordered for close to a month. I ordered again in early April, and it took just under three weeks to get here. It was a long wait, but I was prepared for up to a month.

    When it got here, I got everything I ordered and nothing more, no freebies like others have been getting. The packaging is solid, and the tools that come with each cartridge are actually very useful in packing and unpacking. I ordered an extra charger, a wax cart, and three loose leaf carts to go along with the base kit. I also bought a 10 foot USB extension from Amazon for passthrough during longer/group sessions, and I actually find that it is my favorite accessory right now.

    I am a fan of eliquid, so the first thing I did was fill up the cartridge with some juice I had an waited about 15 minutes for the initial charge. The flavor is actually great, a bit of a tough draw compared to mods but honestly very useful. I've done about 5 or 6 refills, and still haven't had a problem with the cartridge.

    Next, I used the loose leaf. I'll attach a picture, but this is where the unit really surprised me. I split one bowl with a friend, sent it through 3 or 4 of the 2 minute sessions, and I was amazed. Got to a solid 6 off of half a bowl. Compared to the Pax 2, the vapor is very lacking and it will take many more draws to get to the same level, but for me that isn't an issue as long as I get there. I love the pen form factor, and the fact that it's so effective is an even bigger plus.

    In reviews, I see people like Vape Critic say you get 7-8 draws per cart. I wholeheartedly disagree with this. I'm not sure if he just stopped seeing vapor and just called it a day or not, but just because the taste might be a little off or the vapor production went down does not mean there's no much more THC left. Also, for groups, it's easy to pack two or three bowls, leave the vape plugged in on the extension, and even up to 5 people can be satisfied. AVB is very consistent too, and you can fit a decently small amount of bud in the bowl (compared to dime in picture).

    Now, for the negatives. Firstly, when the vape is on passthrough via the extension, it uses more power than is being supplied, so after a while it will still die. Next, my biggest peeve with the device the cartridges do not fit perfectly. Especially with the loose leaf, there is a noticeable wiggle when in use. It doesn't fall out or anything, but is annoying. Lastly, the bright green light on the bottom could compromise discreteness during use.

    To conclude, it's a great device and I'd definitely recommend it. Easily one of the most minimal vapes on the market, and to me it seems like some of the kinks have been worked out. Obviously I've only had it for a week, but if this sticks out even for 6 months I think it would've been a great investment and I'd gladly pay $60 for another battery. I haven't tried the wax yet, so no comment on that. Feel free to ask more questions, and lastly, pictures: http://imgur.com/a/3M9sX#0

    Customer service DOES SUCK. What brand of cannabis concentrate /liquid would you recommend ? They would not answer my question. My conclusion is THEY DO NOT SUPPORT THEIR PRODUCT.

    I would make a large wager that they advertise and attend Cannabis Conventions. Terrible for PR

    Hello all ,new member here. As I'm looking at some of those recent pics i noticed that some of those tips look like metal rather than rubber. Do they come with both?

    I think it is a silver looking plastic?

    Another thing about these series 3/quickdraws, it seems there are holes in the bottom of the herb chamber, so the fresh air is drawn from where the electronics are?

    007- The wax and eliquid mouthpieces are hard plastic, the loose leaf is soft rubber. The rest of the body is metal, no plastic in this thing. Also, all three carts draw air through the bottom of the device. If using eliquid, you can attest to this by pushing the button and blowing through the bottom of the pen. Vapor comes out of the top.

    Ok the rubber mouth piece I don't mind. That's if the rubber taste,smell isn't present. Which I've thought to have read in this thread,it does not. I've actually had ordered the GH but I want a second pen for the go and have till that time .i like the stealth with this. But just the dry leaf catridge not the other two. More like 3 dry ones!!

    Today I received Free 2 Day Shipping and a Secondary cart with my purchase of a QuickDraw 300D on account of the wait time for the restocking of the DLX.

    The customer service is great! As for the people over at V2...well, I'm not entirely convinced there is anyone at V2.

    Hi guys, new here, thanks for a great forum, loots of good info. I'm looking to purchase the V2 Pro Series 3 for my out on the town vape. My Mighty stays mostly at home. Can you recommend a store within Europe to purchase from if you don't fancy dealing with shady ebay dealers. Swift shipping and decent price is most important to me since I need to receive it within two weeks for a holiday trip. Cheers!

    I must say that, after 4 months of use, I am very disappointed with the V2Series 3 Pro. It worked great at first but after wax usage (cartridge gets hot) the mouthpiece of the wax cartridge broke off. Of course, it is not under warranty... V2 says, so sorry! Well, a little superglue and my wax cart works again. About about a week later I found that my e-juice cart fell off of the battery. WTF? Turns out that after wax usage (remember the hot wax cart?) there is a metal O-ring (allows the magnetic carts adhere) that is glued inside the battery. Well this falls off. Although the carts work, if you tilt the unit the carts fall out of the battery. I've got a call to V2 to see if they will replace the unit. Only time will tell. I think that if you just use the Series 3 as a e-juice or loose leaf vape you are ok. Beware of normal usage of the wax cart, though. Maybe mine is just a fluke.

    Similar experience. I'm on my second unit and third liquid cartridge. It is a novelty more than anything else.

    I agree. I am looking for a good small 510 wax pen now. Thinking of Source Orb.

    Go to aliexpress and buy a generic pen for about $15. The wax containers are about $12 for 6.
