    Best starter kit for old man?

    Hey guys, new to the forum and have spent last night + today reading to get an idea of where to start. Boy there's a lot of information on here!

    I need your help in order to help my dad to quit analogues and start vaping.

    He is happy to start up vaping after we discussed it as he's tried to quit smoking a few times but usually gets so annoying and infuriating that the family practically stuff analogues back in his mouth to shut him up.

    This is where you wise lot come in. I need an e-cig that's going to be simple for him.

    I'm going to need a:

    -long lasting battery so that he can puff all day without having to recharge or he'll crack the shits with it
    -something with long lasting or easy to change tanks so that he doesn't have to fumble around with them. Do I want tanks or prefilled cartridges?
    -do I need to get anything else? atomizers or anything?

    I'd be filling the tanks for him at night and doing the recharging, but I need a really basic system that wont involve too much hard work.

    Do I look for a Joye 510 or Boge revolution? Is there a website that will sell me both a starter kit and juice and ship to australia??

    good questions.
    I am going to stick my head on a platter here and suggest something like an ego B atty and 900mAh ego batts. easier to clean and maintain than ego tanks, a filled cartridge giving a good 2 hours of HEAVY usage.

    juice will likely come down to being a deciding factor as to whether he sticks to it.

    ultimately, you will need 2 chargers and 3 batterys in case of failures .. at least 3 atomisers to start with and a 10 pack of carts.
    I wuold get 10 10ml juices at 18mg, order more of what he likes quickly, say 3 tobaccos, a menthol and a half dozen assorted.
    caramel, coffee etc are nice but you will need to clean attys after a few weeks.
    In order of useful: Provari V2 and V1, vamo, eGo twist, Katana v3, Hex, Orion v2, LavaTube, eGo x 6, VMAX, 510N, Tick V2, Tick V1, noEgo 18650, noEgo 14650 , Indulgence x 2, 905 6v mod, KR808D

    Thanks for your advice!

    can't see a kit for the standard ego B, the ones you linked are T atomisers, work well but a ***** to clean.

    these are the attys, i reckon 3 or 4 .. http://www.healthcabin.net/index.php...oducts_id=7886 I reckon type B are better. a variety of colours makes it easy to tell em apart.
    3 x batterys .. http://www.healthcabin.net/index.php...oducts_id=7592 900 I would recomend, same deal with colours, just my opnion.
    2 chargers .. http://www.healthcabin.net/index.php...oducts_id=7843
    couple of packs of carts .. http://www.healthcabin.net/index.php...oducts_id=7682

    thats all thats needed in the ecig department, will keep you going for months before maybe needing more atomisers, they should last at least 3 weeks each though, maybe much more. You will need a USB port to plug the charger into, ebay ipad chargers for the perfect ones, ipad chargers are 2A, iphone ones also work really really well, they are 5.6v instead of 5.0 but never had an issue and they charge faster.
    then just need juice ..

    edit:
    2 chargers and 3 batterys gives a safety buffer of failure is all, if you intend to get a second order off in a few weeks for more juice, then just grab 2 batts,2 attys and 1 charger to save on the bucks if needed.
    might as well grab a pack or too of these as something that can be used instead of the attys, to try juices etc, these are prefilled, can be rinsed and filled with another juice, same price as empty so why not get full ones .. http://www.healthcabin.net/index.php...oducts_id=7607
    these are a good addition to the cartos, makes em more pleasant to use, lexan and plastic ones get less of a 'gunk' buildup on the outside..

    Gday BbB, I'm just starting out with it too, have a look here for some ideas.

    Seems eGo's are the shot, Stoney's advice is smart with the extra backup batts/charger too.

    As far as where to buy, after comparing the main Aussie sites vs the bigger Chinese 2 for the last week

    90% of starter kits are better priced here anyway, you might get single components a few $ cheaper here or there (same with Aus vs Aus)

    but after double or more (for bigger orders) postage the total comes out about even at best. Plus it'll be faster and easier to fix up if there are any problems.

    http://www.healthcabin.net/index.php...oducts_id=7882 Estimated shipping was $15

    http://www.vapebar.com.au/joye-ego-t-1000mah-starter-kit-matte-black/
    price here is $1.95 more but Express post $7.50

    After a weeks comparing Aussie sites Vapebar's the overall winner for me, just waiting for fundage to make my order.

    For your first order, it's best to maybe get your kit and nic juice from overseas. The money you'll save you can put towards Express from China which is usually here in 5 days. Health cabin is really good, as is Heaven Gifts.

    I'd go for a few Ego batteries and some cartos, Boges preferably. They are dummy proof and good for no nonsense start ups.

    i reckon some kind of EASY tank to chuck around the cartos as well ..... you get a 3ml tank he'll be set for juice all day ..... less the carto dies then you could have a second as backup for him ....

    I'd recommend these babies for a super easy to fill tank. Not exactly reliable or the best in the world, but I haven't had any issues that weren't solved by pulling the little rubber cap off and cleaning.
