    Gear Recomendation for a Newbie looking to move past cigalikes

    Hi

    I have been using the an cigalike style e-cig for about 6 months now and am finding it's simply not cutting it for me. I'm very keen to get off cigarettes and hoped at first that those sort of e-cigs may be the best option due to the likeness but have kind of been disappointed and find myself reaching for the pack of cigarettes far more often than I would like. The particular vendor which I used released a disposable clearomizer which I much preferred to their carts in regards to flavour and vapour which renewed some hope for me but I find the manufacturing a bit hit and miss having had several duds come through which have started leaking or become gurgly after very minimal use (a day or two). The ones that worked have been fine and lasted a few weeks but I guess you could say I'm ready to move on.

    After reading your forum for a few months on and off and regularly over the last few weeks I think have narrowed it down to two potential candidates. (though I'm more than happy to receive other recommendations)

    Option 1: The Aspire Premium Starter Kit Click Here if you’re not familiar with the kit

    Option 2: 1 x Aspire Nautilus Mini w BVC coils , 1 x Eleaf iStick & Spare BVC Coils.

    I'll be honest as say that at this point I'm feeling far more comfortable with Option 1 as although Option 2 seems to give me more flexibility for the future Option 1 gives me a packaged solution which I wouldn't have to mess around with or end up with a bad impression from either component just because I'm new and get something wrong. But I haven't come across anyone on here reccomending this kit yet ( where as I've seen several people recommend the eleaf istick + Nautilus mini)

    In addition to the above queries some additional questions I'd like to ask so that I don't skimp (or over spend) on my order are:

    • Should I purchase extra coils in addition to those that already come in the kit ?
    • Should I get a Nautilus Mini replacement glass ?
    • Would you recommend that I get a spare battery ?



    Now I know that some of the extras may seem wasteful but it's probably worth mentioning that I work away often and so may find myself stranded without a stable shipping address for 2 weeks out of a given month and I would hate to be stuck in a situation where I didn't have a functional vaporiser.


    Thanks in advance to any assistance you can provide

    Option 2 x 2

    get spare coils, get spare glass, a spare battery is recommended.

    The Istick is a great unit, and for the price, get 2


    and the nautilus? many would say it's one of the best clearos you can get

    Yep, option 2, nauts are a great clearo.
    Istick will leave your options open for rebuildables in the future.

    You are not a true vaper unless you have backups.
    Seriously though I would recommend at least having a backup battery. When you do decide to get rid of the stinkies you will initially be very concerned about what you will do if your gear doesn't work or you end up out with a flat battery. I carried a complete spare setup every time I went out for at least six months before a became confidant in the gear I was using and that I would not smoke again ever.

    I still carry spare batt's, juice and carto's when I go out for any length of time.

    Cheers

    Hi mate i have just upgraded to an ego from greenmans ,it has 2 x 900mha batteries and comes with two clearos they are ok to start with and this is just my next step,everyone is different this is my way .The kit cost me 30.00 and free shipping from the states and is on there website if you want have a look ,as said this is my next step as i am not sure if ill stay vaping or use it as a vehicle to stop smoking ,i enjoy vaping but you still get the crap at work "oh whats that stupid thing hanging out your mouth " as they puff away on there cigis ,well when there weezing and coughing all the time then they will understand what this stupid thing is hanging out of my mouth .I say each to there own mate if you think this is what you want then go for it good luck .

    Thankyou for your help everyone

    I placed my order with VapeKing today for the Nautilus Mini and Eleaf iStick 30w and picked up a mix of 1.6 and 1.8 oHm coils to try both types

    I didn't order a spare Glass at this point because I have been considering making my spare one of the Stainless Steel ones or the Nautilus Mini Hollowed out tank for a bit of extra durability carrying around in a pocket etc.

    Thanks again for your help and I'm sure you will see me around posting questions as I learn :-)

    You've picked up a great bit of kit. What I take out to work all the time. Don't worry about getting spare glass, seriously it's so thick it's near impossible to break unless ur doing it on purpose.
