But while it may be a great idea to add another battery to your collection of e-cig devices, is this one really worth your time and money? To help you make the right decision, continue reading, as the review below will serve to answer all of your questions regarding this product.
Key Features and Specifications
- 510 threaded
- Variable voltage at 3-6v in 0.1 increments
- Variable wattage at 3-15w
- Pass-through capability and built-in ohms reader
The Virgin Vapor eGo-V v3 is meant to be a small eGo battery that will provide you with a long battery life and the same amount of power of bigger e-cig batteries, all while being small enough to carry with you in your purse or pocket. This battery is also meant to work beautifully with a large variety of tanks and clearomisers, thanks to the fact that it’s 510 threaded, which is really convenient.
This product features a 1300mAh battery that features variable voltage and variable wattage so you can really find your sweet spot while vaping. You can change the wattage from 3 watts to 15 watts, and the voltage ranges from 3 volts to 6 volts, with adjustments that can be made in tiny 0.1 increments for ultimate customisation and control over your vaping experience. And on top of keeping track of your voltage and wattage, this device comes with a handy ohms reader built in.
Safety features include 14-second smart protection. And the LCD screen shows you the current voltage and how much battery life remains. Plus, this device comes with a USB cable that you can use to take advantage of the pass-through feature as well.
Giving It a Test Run
Now that you know about all of the great features that come with Virgin Vapor’s eGo-V v3, you’re probably wondering how well these features actually hold up in the real world. Well, this is definitely considered a workhorse battery rather than a brand new product that many people will be excited about. Nevertheless, there’s no denying that this battery is solid, durable, and performs very well, on top of being really affordable for a variety of budgets. In fact, reviewers who have tested it have stated that they feel it’s a great backup battery for e-cig smokers who want a good replacement for simpler 3.7v eGo batteries, as well as for those who want to get a variable wattage and variable voltage battery.
When taken out of the box, some users were surprised by how light this battery actually is, especially considering the fact that it’s 1300mAh. Because it features a stainless steel finish, this battery also always remains cool to the touch. And the 510 eGo threading means that you can use anything from the biggest tank that you have in your possession, to the simplest 510 cartomisers that you have on hand.
By pressing two buttons that are located next to the really bright display found at the bottom of this device, you can change the voltage in 0.1 increments quickly and easily. And to turn the battery off, all you have to do is click the firing button on the top end of the device.
Because we’re talking about a battery, you’re probably wondering how this one performs when it comes to charge time. Reviewers have reported that it can usually take roughly 3.5 to 4 hours to fully charge the eGo-V v3. But, once charged, it will more than likely last the majority of your day, even if you’re a heavy vaper. In fact, if you consider yourself more of an average vaper, you can probably expect that the battery will last a full day on just one full charge.
Reviewers also noted that, even though there’s a convenient pass-through feature, it was somewhat disappointing, simply because the USB cord is probably not long enough for most vapers to be able to sit comfortably and plug it into their computers. But this is a minor problem because you can always just use a USB extension cable.
If you are hoping to add a great battery to your e-cig collection but you do not have a large budget, this is definitely worth checking out.
