    New to vaping and have a question

    Hope this is the right place for this. Mods, please let me know if it needs to go somewhere else.

    I'm looking for a starter kit that's somewhere between "cheap Chinese junk" and "holy shitballs that's expensive". Found this Bud Touch kit which has good reviews - and was wondering if it's a good ecig for the price, and how dependable this brand is. What do you think? Thanks a lot.

    Can't offer much advice on the kit you have linked to myself, but just for starters what kind of budget range are you looking at. And do you want decent capacity or want something small (does size even matter to you). There's all sorts of other things that can be asked but even just a idea of budget range and what kind of size set-up your after would make it better to advise.

    I myself would try to find something that is easy to use, that is fairly reliable and gives a decent amount of flavour Vs vapour. I think too many people try cheap junk or the wrong kind of set-up for themselves and this leads to a negative vaping experience, the better you can enjoy it the more success you will have in quitting the coffin nails.

    But as an idea, if your after cheap and compact I'd look at a quality VV/VW ego style battery with maybe a CE5/CE6+ or Evod type atomiser. If you want better I'd look at a iStick 30w or a Smok M65 (if you want a user changeable battery) and maybe a decent aspire tank. These kind of mods will allow most types of vaping and a wide range of atomiser choices right through to dripping and sub-ohm use.

    Can always move on more from there but a good mod will still be of use later too so will never be money wasted.

    Did a quick search on Alibaba (Chinese e-commerce site, generally sells in bulk for really cheap) and found those or similar on there very, very cheap so I'd say they fit into the "cheap chinese junk" category.

    Here too
    Although... I guess it could be a clone of it? But I have my doubts

    Are you after something like a cig-a-like? or do you just want to quit smoking?
    How much do you deem "Holy shitballs that's expensive"?
    What kind of budget do you have?

    Heaps of people here will be willing and able to help you out C:

    What Dalork said above, the more you enjoy it the more successful in quitting you'll be.

    Forget the bud touch kit, it's gimmicky & won't satisfy your cravings well.
    Have a look at these 2 threads, this one will give you an idea of what kind of gear you will need ( it's a bit old but there are similar products available if these aren't: Noes List !
    The next will give you an idea of how much juice you will need to replace the cancer sticks: Noe's Newbie guide to nicotine juice consumption & strength.

    If you still need help after reading those, which you probably will, post & ask for advice

    Seriously did you purposely go out to find the most fucked up kit ever created. You just want it because it accepts Cbd cartridges containing -Rich Hemp Oil

    Think you need to update the first post on your Noes list Noe. Its a bit 2012. Gotta keep up with the times.
    Both your links for kits are no longer in stock.

    Now, the fact that it claims to be able to vaporize both e-Juice and hemp oil well is IMO suspicious. There are good e-Juice vaporizers, and good hemp oil vaporizers, and they are two entirely different products (and the good hemp vaporizers are typically quite expensive).

    This unit, selling for 'just under $24' would be a waste of ..just under $24.

    Not even going to touch this one, the mention of hemp oil i think says it all....
