    [GUIDE] So you want a Starter Kit

    STARTER KITS - Updated: 29/01/2015
    Beginner / Entry Level hardware for people trying to make the change

    Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated or connected to any of the vendors listed below! All of this information is subject to personal opinion.

    Here I'll be posting a list of some pre-packaged Starter Kits from various vendors. I will also list some pick and choose starter kits (non pre-packaged kits).
    This will be focused on Hardware and NOT eliquids

    Firstly you will need to work out your BUDGET. Many people will go for the cheapest kit first, Though the issue with this is you are not making the most of what is out there and you will most likely become frustrated and relapse back onto the cigs. You are best to go for something a bit more pricey but you WILL have a better chance of staying off the cigs.

    I will be posting more information and LINKS on these devices in the following posts after this one

    PRE-Packaged Starter Kits:
    Most pre-packaged starter kits will come with 2x Batteries and 2x Tanks at the mid to high price tiers

    Low Price Bracket - Sub $40 - Note As a beginner I wouldn’t recommend these unless tight budget
    VK Discovery Starter Kit - $29.95
    HOV Lady Q Kit - $34.95
    HOV Lady K Kit - $34.95
    HOV Beginner Kit - $39.95

    EYES KangerTech EMow Starter Kit - $49.95 (Pros: 5x replacement coils, 1300mah batt - Cons: Coils are subjective, price only includes 1 batt 1 tank)
    EYES KangerTech EVod Starter Kit - $49.95 (Pros: 5x replacement coils - Cons: 650mah batts, Coils are a little outdated)
    TVC KangerTech EVod Starter Kit - $55 (Pros: 7x replacement coils - Cons: 650mah batts, Coils are a little outdated)
    VST KangerTech EVod Starter Kit - $38.99 (Pros: 5x replacement coils - Cons: 650mah batts, Coils are a little outdated)

    HOV Supreme Kit - $64.95 (Pros: - Cons: 650mah batts, BCCoil)

    High Price Bracket - $65+ If you're looking at this price range might want to look at below custom starter kits!
    VK Premium Starter kit - $69.95 (Pros: BVCoil Cons: 650mah batts)
    VK Deluxe Starter kit - $79.95 (Pros: BVCoil, 1300mah batts Cons: -) Recommended

    VPHA JOYETECH EGRIP - $69.95 (Pros: Variable Wattage VW, 20w, Pass-through, Discrete design, 1500mah battery Cons: limited flexibility: Cant use different tanks, CS Coil*subjective)
    STM Aspire Starter Kit - $65 (Pros: BVCoil, 5 reaplcement coils Cons: No screen on battery, 900mah battery, Tank is subjective for the price)
    STM Aspire Premium Starter Kit - $84.95 (Pros: Great tank, BVCoil, 5 replacement coil, 1000mah battery Cons: No screen on the battery)
    TVC Aspire Premium Kit - $75 (Pros: Nautilus mini Tank, 5 replacement coils, BVCoil - Cons: Single battery and tank for the price)

    Custom Starter kits (Not Pre-packaged)

    With these Packages I’m basically going to list three tanks to pick from, If any other members think of some good tanks I will list them here but so far I’m going to recommend just THREE.

    Tank #1: Aspire Nautilus (BVC; Bottom Verticle Coil) Aprx $30-35
    - This is a 5ml tank
    Tank #2: Aspire Nautilus Mini (BVC; Bottom Verticle Coil) Aprx $30-35
    - This is a 2ml tank
    Tank #3: Beyond Vape Silo Tank (BVC; Bottom Verticle Coil) Aprx $35-45
    - This is a 5ml tank, This tank also uses the Aspire BVCoil's (same as the two tanks above), Has a larger Airhole compared to above tanks
    Replacement Coils: Aspire BVC Aprx $3 each
    NOTE: These three tank share the same BVCoil so you can buy both and use the same coils.

    Package #1
    Battery/Mod: Eleaf istick 30w Aprx $50-60
    Recommended Tank: Tank #1,3 Nautilus
    Pros: Large battery capacity 2200mah, Battery has pass-through so you can vape while charging via Micro USB, Tiny box mod fits in the palm of your hand very discrete, Ego adapter
    Cons: Charging Port on the bottom so have to lay down flat, iStick Possibly still uses PWM-Mean
    Overall: This device is small and discrete while using the highly recommended Aspire Tanks with the BVCoils which offer great flavour and vape. The battery lasts a long time and has a great form factor to it. Because this device can now go up to 30w and has the ability to go down to 0.4ohms it gives the ability to grow with the user over time unlike other pre-packaged mods which has the user throwing them out over time to upgrade.

    Package #2
    Battery/Mod: Innokin iTaste CLK 1280 Aprx $30-35
    Recommended Tank: Tank #2 Nautilus Mini
    Pros: Large 1280mah battery, Variable Voltage 3.5v to 5v, 510 and Ego compatible, Pass-through function can use while charging
    Cons: Charging port up the top near the buttons,
    Overall: Decent stick mod if you don’t mind the size has a decent size battery for beginners and it allows the user to change their voltage on the fly to their liking

    Package #3
    Battery/Mod: Vision Spinner EGO VV Aprx $25-30
    Recommended Tank: Tank #2 Nautilus Mini
    Pros: 1300mah battery, slim design, Variable Voltage allowing you to change the voltage on the fly to your liking
    Cons: No passthrough so you cannot use it while charging which means you will want to have TWO of these to use one while the other is charging.
    Overall: Nice large battery with the VV and slim design fits nicely in your pocket, Though due to it not having pass-through and thereby needing TWO of these It may not be the best option for most.

    Package #4
    Battery/Mod: Vision Spinner 2 EGO VV Aprx $25-30
    NOTE: This battery is a refreshed version of Package #3 with a larger battery and a few minor PCB changes.
    Recommended Tank: Tank #2 Nautilus Mini
    Pros: 1600mah battery, slim design, Variable Voltage allowing you to change the voltage on the fly to your liking
    Cons: No passthrough so you cannot use it while charging which means you will want to have TWO of these to use one while the other is charging.
    Overall: Nice large battery with the VV and slim design fits nicely in your pocket, Though due to it not having pass-through and thereby needing TWO of these It may not be the best option for most.

    EDIT: I have put the Notes and Links in a separate post due to character limits.

    Added the Silo tank to the thread, mainly because a lot of people recommend it as well as it having a larger airhole compared to the nautilus family and it also can use the same BVCoil's as the Nautilus family

    Any other vendors or people on the forum know of any other starter kits to add to the list or any other recommended mods for starters in the pick and part kits?

    Question I need help in choosing between two brands please!

    Hi I am looking into buying a starter kit and would like some help. I am heavy smoker and want to use vape as a way to quit my addiction. So I want a good product that will not make me go back to smoking cigarettes after a month. After reading your thread I am between buying a VK Deluxe Starter Kit or Kanger EMOW Mega Starter Kit. I am not sure if VK has a dual coil system as this I understand is a better option. Can someone please help me understand which on is a better option. Thank you in advance.
