WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE
2 Batteries, 1 Charger, and a USB/Wall Adaptor
Vision eGo Spinner or Joyetech eGo Twist variable voltage batteries. Need two.
A battery's expected time of use between charges is rated in "mAh". 100 mAh = 1 hour. A 650 mAh battery can be expected to work for 6.5 hours, a 1000 mAh battery expected to last 10 hours between charges. Thus you'll need more than a single battery to be able to vape all day.
Appropriate eGo battery charger and a USB/wall unit.
Juice Delivery Devices: I recommend getting a couple of top or bottom fill clearomizers. These are easy for beginners to fill and use. These have a replacement wick/coil head assembly which may need to be replaced every 10 - 20 days. Coil heads are not intercompatible between different models or brands.
The Innokin iClear 16, Aspire CE5, Kanger T3S or Evod, or a Mini Vivi Nova made by Aspire or Vision are commonly recommended clearomizers. Get two; use the second one for a backup or to use with a second flavor. You might consider getting a couple of replacement coil heads at this time of the particular clearomizer model that you choose.

*All the above can be found at most online e-cigarette retailers. You can buy these individually or in a starter kit. The e-liquid will need to be purchased separately.
Juice, or e-liquid:
For e-liquid, a typical 1 pack-per-day smoker likely will need 12-18 mg nicotine in the juice.
Figure on consuming 2 - 3 ml of liquid daily.
