    It will probalby be a mod of some type as batteries are key to lots of vapor production.

    From what I've read around here, and seen on here... its probably going to be Trogs Screwdriver for the most vapor output. Im not a mod fan, but I respect the modders.

    You are stuck in a catch 22.

    to get the most vapor possible you will need a powerful 6v or otherwise modified e-cig that is going to look and feel like sucking on a flashlight so I have to wonder how much that is going to work for you psychologically.

    The closer you get to what a real cigarette looks like the lower the performance is going to be.

    The cigars and penstyles seem to offer better performance than the minis and super minis but not as good as the larger mod versions of e-cigs.

    the mini's and super mini's are what is going to most resemble a real cigarette but they would fall at the bottom of the performance ladder.

    The product that has been falling in the middle nicely for me is a janty dura c aka. JoyE 510 with manual batteries. look into it and I think you will like what you see.

    I agree with Dumwaldo . . . the best vapor production tends to come from the less conventional looking e-cigs. Of my personal arsenal (Janty Kissbox, Janty Dura-C, Screwdriver, generic penstyle, generic DSE901, and PureSmoker Pilot), the Screwdriver is definitely the best in terms of throat hit and vapor production. (I have a JantyStick on order, and while I haven't yet tried it, I suspect it will provide vapor and throat hit similar to my Screwdriver, at least based on reviews I've seen thus far).

    Having said that, though, I think many who are new to vaping are a bit more comfortable, at least in the beginning, with something that is somewhat close in size/shape to a cigarette.

    With that in mind, I'd strongly suggest a 510-C (I have the Janty Dura-C). It's slightly longer and thicker than a conventional cigarette, but still close enough to a cigarette feel to keep most folks happy. It produces a good amount of vapor, especially considering its size. The other thing that's nice is the 510 provides a harsher vape, more reminiscent of smoking a tobacco cigarette than some other, smoother devices.

    In my mind, the only downside to the 510 is the battery life is pretty short (for me, a couple of hours, sometimes less, but I'm a heavy vaper).

    If you don't think that you need something cigarette-like to start off with, then I'd be looking at something like the Screwdriver, the JantyStick, or the Prodigy. I think any of those will pack a nice punch and provide more than enough vapor to keep you happy. Plus, their battery lives will put the 510 (and most other "traditional" models) to shame.

    Three letters...

    PCC

    the pocket charging case is a must have accessory for this e-cig. Not only does it insure ample supply of power for even the heaviest vaping all day long but it mimics a cigarette pack for carry purposes.

    I agree with most of this post, EXCEPT the "sucking on a flashlight" part. I can conceal my screwdriver just as will as any other ecig. I don't know why so many people (not just DW) make it seem like you are trying to vape form a baseball bat or something............. At is largest point the SD is only about 2.5 times the diameter of a 901 and it is shorter than my wife's 901.......

    Yup. But for me, it takes longer for the PCC to charge a battery than it takes for me to use one up. Yeah, I guess that's a sad commentary about how heavily I vape.

    I also want to echo Elendil's observations about the Screwdriver. I don't know why, but I had envisioned it as being much larger. I'm able to vape discretely with it, basically palming it. Frankly, I take it out and about with me and no one seems to look at it more closely than my Dura-C. In fact, I get more looks with my Janty Kissbox than with the Dura-C or the Screwdriver, probably because it's a longer e-cig.

    As much as I love my Screwdriver, I have to say that for me, I'm not sure if my transition from smoking to vaping would have been quite as easy had I started with the Screwdriver. My first e-cig was the Janty Dura (an automatic battery, not the manual), and it was very helpful to start with something that was about the same size and shape as a cigarette. It helped me get over that psychological hump. For other folks, the psychological aspect of size/shape may not be nearly as important when first starting out.
