V2 Cigs, a leading manufacturer of cigalike vapes, has been closed for good.
For fans of the brand we will unfortunately not see any new V2 products, nor will we get any more refill cartridges or spare parts from the V2 brand.
For those who don't want to give up their V2 cigs just yet, we have a couple of options for V2 compatible refills and other accessories that will allow you to smoke your favorite V2 e-cigarettes.
But first let's take a look at the question that is on everyone's mind …
Despite their apparent popularity, V2 cigs finally closed their doors in late 2018.
In a statement released by the company in November 2018, new US tariffs on Chinese imports and unsustainable losses from the previous quarters were cited as the reason for the decision.
However, a little research into V2 Cigs corporate history reveals a different story. The company was acquired by JUUL Labs in October 2018, just a month before the business went out of business.
This had led to much speculation that JUUL, the largest electronic cigarette company in the United States, bought V2 cigs to shut down the business.
