    V2 Cigs has suddenly and without warning permanently closed for business. As of November the 2nd 2018 V2 decided to stop operations, leaving customers wondering what happened and where they can source refill cartridges and batteries.

    Why did V2 Close?

    In April of 2018, Chinese state owned Huaboa acquired 51% of V2 Cigs and parent company VMR for $22.8 million USD. Then in October of 2018, JUUL Vapor bought total controlling interest from Huaboa and VMR for $75 million USD. As of November 2, 2018 JUUL decided to close V2 Cigs for good.

    Why?, well nobody knows for sure. In a statement posted on the V2 website the company gives the reason as increased tariffs products ‘that will dramatically alter our cost structure and profitability’ and a ‘challenging environment’ in the e-cigs industry, but this clearly isn’t the full story. More likely is that JUUL decided to take out one of its largest competitors, although it would eventually have to restructure and discontinue most pod flavours to stave off FDA regulation.

    Here’s the statement in full :

    Dear Loyal VMR Customers,

    For nearly 10 years, we have prided ourselves on engineering and building the best e-cigarettes and vaporizers. Our commitment to leading-edge design and technology is how we became one of the leading players in this industry and one of your favorite brands at retail. In so doing, we developed a very loyal group of customers. We are thankful for your support over the years. As you are aware, our industry is the subject of an increasingly challenging environment. In addition, our products are the target of tariffs that will dramatically alter our cost structure and profitability.

    After considering these and other factors, we made the very difficult decision to discontinue our operations effective at 4pm Eastern Time on November 2, 2018. We appreciate that our closure will raise a number of questions that we have sought to address in the Frequently Asked Questions section below. If you have additional questions that are not addressed below, we have provided you an opportunity to submit your questions where noted. While we may not be able to answer every question that is posed, we will seek to do so and may update the “Frequently Asked Questions” below with additional information.
