The electronic cigarette has started a real revolution for ex-smokers all across the globe and some of them have become true experts in what these devices are concerned. However, for other people, e-cigarettes still represent uncharted territory and although they would like to give vaping a shoot, they are unsure about which brand to choose and what type of e-cig starter kit to go for. Here are a few tips to help you figure out what to look for when it comes to starter kits.

We suggest visiting at least five companies’ websites before making a purchase because prices can vary and you can get more or less for the same sum. Also you might want to read some reviews about these starter kits in order to have a thorough understanding about their components and overall performance. We have reviewed a lot of brands and starter kits so make sure you check out our top 10 Starterkit page.

Durability is the main criterion on which most people choose their starter kits. In general, the most renowned brands of e-cigarettes use the best materials for their devices and there are fewer chances of them braking down. We suggest going for a company with many internet reviews but understand there is no such thing as ‘perfect’. In addition, the price tag is not a clear indicator of quality. In what starter kits are concerned, the pricier the kit the more accessories it contains, but the battery model and cartomizers are essentially the same as in cheaper versions.

The ease of use is another criterion that you should consider. If you feel that refilling your e-cigarette tank with liquid and having to always keep a button pressed when vaping are just too much trouble then you should go for a cigarette-a-like type starter kit. There are many brands that sell these and they usually come with an automatic battery. Changing the flavor cartomizers is also straight forward as you simply unscrew the depleted ones and screw on the fresh ones. Keep in mind that all batteries require recharging, no matter what the kit and like any day-to-day device, your ecigarette also needs some regular maintenance to keep the contacts clean from e-liquid spills and oxidation.

If you are constantly on the run and you rarely get the chance to sit for a few hours you might want to look for a kit that comes with a portable charging case (or PCC). This can be charged overnight and it will help you recharge your batteries on the go for as long as 6-8 times. Also, if your job or lifestyle requires a lot of car travel then make sure you get a kit with a car charger included. Sure, you can buy one afterwards but it is always cheaper and simpler to get all the stuff you need in a single box.

If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer or laptop, you might want to choose a starter kit that comes with a USB pass-through battery. This is a great alternative to always having to recharge because it uses the power from the USB port to operate the atomizer.

In the end, all you need is the right flavor and you will be vaping on your e-cigarette for many hours to come.

Former pack-a-day smoker, I discovered electronic cigarettes back in 2011. Since then vaping has slowly turned into my hobby and my full time job. I’ve tested hundreds of e-cigarettes and mods across the years and constantly used my knowledge and experience to help others make the switch. I’m passionate about technology, I enjoy reading and I love big flavorful clouds.
