Filed in Vaporpedia by on April 3, 2014

v2 ecigarettes ex blanksTrying something new can be challenging; sometimes even nerve-wracking. You switched to e-cigs and now you’re ready to expand your vaping knowledge – but when you think about giving e-liquids and blanks a try, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of electronic cigarette information out there. You’ve read some of the V2® Forum threads and FAQ’s about filling and cleaning blanks, mixing e-liquid, and best practices for just about everything related to ecigarettes under the sun. It’s a lot of information. We understand.

But, just as pronounced as the mind-boggling amount of information, is the astounding amount of satisfied electronic cigarette devotees who continue to enthusiastically share their passion for DIY e-liquid and everything else ecigarettes have to offer. You want in. You’re ready to take the next step in your journey with ecigarettes. And guess what? You don’t have to be a mad scientist or a chemist to get in on the e-liquid action…

Today, we’re not going to bewilder you with tons of techniques on how to use your EX Blanks and V2 Platinum E-Liquids. We’re keeping it simple.

NOTE: DIY e-liquid isn’t for everyone – if you’re a no frills type of vaper, pre-filled V2 Flavor Cartridges may be your best bet; and, they’re available in the same twelve delicious flavors as V2 Platinum E-Liquid. Do what works for your lifestyle.

refill ex blanksFilling EX Blanks

Remove your EX Blank from the battery and unscrew the black top. Tilt it slightly and fill by slowly releasing e-liquid down the side of the blank, until it reaches the fill line (.9 ml). Make sure you do not get any liquid into the hole in the center. Check out this video to see it being done.

Customizing Flavors & Nicotine Strengths

If you want to combine two or more flavors – or nicotine strengths – just drip each flavor separately into the blank. You can use equal amounts to get a more balanced taste or you can use more of one flavor and less of another, to create your own mix. Need ideas? Check out the V2 forum or our Facebook page to see what other V2 fans are doing…

Once you’re comfortable with the basics, head to the V2 Forum for even more details and ideas from other vapers. You’re not an electric cigarette newbie anymore!

    I am not a newbie to the EX Blank, but have a basic question on proportional filling. I am chopping my nicotine my nicotine percentage gradually (for good medical reasons) and am diluting the strong stuff with zero nicotine V2 ‘sauce”. The problem is the markings on the V2 EX Blanks – they can’t be proportional (or even accurate) as they are evenly spaced and the internal tube and “combustion chamber” are different diameters. Has anyone done the measurements as to the real levels compared with the markings? I could do it by filling with water to each marking then measuring the amount of water, but don’t have a small ml measure. Any suggestions?

  2. Jon says:

    use the “drops” method…if it takes 20 drops to fill, then as you put x amount of drops in write down your results. e.g. 3 drops for 0.1ml, 7 drops 0.2, when you get to the combustion chamber the ratio will change. You can do it yourself w/out an exact ml measurer.

  3. How do you clean the blank cartridges, and when filling the liquid how far should you go, this is my first time try V2.
