    Eon Smoke they only sell KR 808s with pre loaded carto,s in 0 12 16 18&24 mgs that can be re filled many many times.

    They do free postage all over the world.

    I still use them when going out at night and they send them to Australia free shipping.

    The auto batteries last a very long time but charge time is only around 4 hours for a moderate vaper.

    Hey Gals/Guys!

    Several months ago, my BF bought us a V2 kit with two extra long (110mm) batteries and bunch of cartos. He then quickly 'graduated' to larger EGO batteries, clearos/tanks, making his own juice, and rebuilding coils.

    While I do like the V2's, I found them a bit too long and heavy to hold. I also needed to constantly ask him to refill and clean my cartos which he would gladly do.
    Since then, one of them has broken (my own fault). I would like for you guys to help me pick out another cig-a-like (important) to use and also recommend cartos/clearos/tanks. My BF doesn't know much about 808 types. I'm leaning towards Smokeless Image's Volt. How much of a difference in battery life is there between a 65mm vs. a 78mm automatic? Thanks!

    My experience has been with the Halo G6 batteries. I have both 65mm and 78mm, both auto and manual. Halo has good batteries, seem to last a long time, and charge quick. If you want a very close cig-a-like experience, get the white batteries with the tan cartos. People would have to look close to notice it is a e-cig. Plus they fit nice in some carry cases offered out there. I have one that slips into my shirt pocket. I prefer the clear mini tanks with tips for home use. They are easy to fill, not very expensive, and you can see how much juice is left and keep them topped off. I use the tan cartos when I go out. I will eventually get a bigger PV down the line, but right now I am trying different juices and mixtures. Then, once I have a good juice supply, I will start spending money on the good hardware. Happy Vaping!

    I am new to vaping and wanted a cig a like also, that being said after reading the forums I ended up getting a Halo G6 starter kit. I love it and it has kept me off smoking analogs for about a week now! I also got the mini tank with it and I would say the mini tank is a must have. With that being said while I am happy with my G6 I am currently in the market for a bigger device for home use. Hope this helps you out!

    My recommendation is for the smokeless image/volt cigalikes, with either the small form factor clearos. They have better pricing than v2 and more juice choices. My personal favorite is their ry4.

    If I'm pushed, my vote would be for a 510 manual Joyetech with some low resistance cartomizers.

    Personally, I would take any claims on the "big brand" cig-sized websites with a massive spoonful of salt. Most of these batteries are $1.50 items, so any price is going to be too expensive.

    If small batteries is your thing, maybe you should just buy half a dozen direct from China and save yourself the aggravation of spending $40 on 2 batteries that are only good for a few months. As for the $79.99 kits from some of these companies...(not mentioning anything in particular) I am bemused why anyone would choose to have their wallet emptied in such a way.

    It's a dodgy market and there are some fairly good cig-sized devices, but far too easy to get ripped off i.m.o.

    I noticed reference to a certain brand that charges $19.99 per battery claiming they are reduced from $25.00. Madness.

    Just because it can be cheaper than smoking, doesn't make it right to price a $1.50 product for even $19.99, let alone $25.
    A couple of problems here. The Joye 510's are regulated to 3.2-3.3v. That might give it more battery life but it puts it below some other offerings in other areas.

    Getting half a dozen from China is viable if you know what you are getting. I have got things direct three times now and two to of the times I was flat out lied to and have product that i will not use. On one order I got what they said I would get.

    If you have certain requirements that you want to meet it can be more expensive buying direct if you have specific requirements.

    You might find it hard to bear using a cig-a-like but in some cases they are very practical. I have three big battery devices and tons of medium battery devices but if you are active sometimes a cig-a-like is the best thing at the moment.

    There is a lot of variation in quality and specs on these devices. Yes there are compromises that cannot be helped but if someone can find these devices useful there is nothing wrong with trying to find the best they can get to match their wants.

    I started with a Halo G6 kit, white battery with tan clearos. People really did have to stop and look to tell I wasn't smoking an analog. I went to the mini-tanks after the first batch of clearos wore out, and liked those as well. They worked fine with the auto battery. Battery life was good, the two in the kit usually lasted me all day (3 - 4 mL / day). Charge time for me was around 2 hours, much less than it took to go through a battery.

    I've since upgraded to a Twist with T3s and Evod clearos, but keep the 808 kit around for backup. I may try taking one to work just to stealth vape as someone else suggested, though it would be much tougher to pass it off as just being a pen...

    I started off using Smokeless Image's volt and I thought that they were awesome. Shortly after, I got an ego-T setup and have not touched the old cig-a-likes since. I would have to charge the volt batteries every hour or every other hour. They get very weak at the end of the battery life as well. IMO they are a pain to fill, and way more often, as well as tasting like your vaping cardboard. Also it is very hard to find accessories and other 808 threaded stuff locallly.

    My eGo-t setup I got for $25 works amazing. Easy to find parts/ other 505 threaded stuff for it. I have a 2.5ml clearo tank with replaceable heads that cost almost nothing. Like $1 a week in maintenance. The battery itself lasts all day long. I only charge it while a shower, or do something else I cannot vape at the same time. I vape consistently, its always in my hand.

    And that is the small battery. Wait until you get into the bigger batteries
