Help please, starting to get baffled
I posted yesterday, that I've just started vaping as an alternative to smoking, currently using nicolites that I got from the supermarket, going well so far, no analogs today
Chrissie I think it was recommended ego or riva, problem doing a search for those just confused me even more, it's all so damn complicated!
Thought I would list what it is I want and see if some of you experienced vapers might be able to help me.
Nicolites are fine for now, enjoy the taste etc, but the battery only seems to last a few hours (granted I'm vaping a lot) and the cartomiser replacements are expensive compared to others (VIP) for example.
I'm trying to plan what I'm going to buy next week on payday.
for now, I'm not interested in any fruity flavourings, just plain old tobacco flavour, currently vaping 16mg but suspect I probably need a little higher nicotine.
I'm also not ready for anything that I have to fill myself, don't like the idea of messing around with e-juice at this point.
What I would like is a not too expensive kit, (I'm vaping for now to save money) maybe just straight forward screw and replace cartomisers like nicolites have, but I would like a PV that doesn't look like an analog and has a better battery life
hope that all makes some sense
thanks for all the help here
There are some vendors that sell prefilled cartomizers with tobacco flavors. They are expensive & that is why most folks buy juice & fill cartos themselves. Saves $$
However as a newbie it might be good for you to start with prefilled for awhile then go to the filling routine when you are ready for that. This is the way I started.
Have you looked at Johnson Creek website? They have Vea starter kit, prefilled cartos, & empty cartos & juice. That might be an easy start for you in a one-stop-shopping experience. Best to keep it simple while learning. My 2c
As Chrissie suggested the Riva is an excellent PV especially if battery life is an issue. "If" you really wanted to save $$ the E-Power is better in the long run. Extra Riva batts are $18 each while extra E-Power batts are 2 for $9.00. Both are 3.7 volts and give apporox. 10? hrs vaping. Both highly regarded PVs.
And Vea is a decent kit for a newbie... Not the cheapest around but decent battery... Not the mall kiosk ripoff.
Ellen, this is a fantastic deal on a Riva 1100 mAh (The higher the mAh the longer the battery lasts between charges - I should imagine your nicolite is only about 180 mAh) use discount code ECR10 for 10% off -
The VE Riva 1100 Deluxe Kit £34.95 - Deluxe Vaping Kits - Riva 1100 Kit Electronic Cigarettes | Vaping Devices | Accessories | E-Liquid
However, you would have to fill & refill the cartomisers & vision ego that comes with that kit, but it really is easy.
Another alternative though would be the SD key ring that comes with prefilled cartomisers it's really small but a decent mAh of 300 for such a small sized battery -

And for more of the prefilled cartomisers -

Hi i youtubed all i needed to learn to get me from an empty cart to vaping and making my own e-liquid since i gave up cigarettes hope this helps.
Good advice. And my 2c is don't fear refilling cartos it is super easy just takes a little time if your not using a syringe

I suggest you get a Kgo starter kit. They are reasonably priced, true 3.7v devices and are relatively simple to use.
As for refilling, let me try and break this down for you.
You can normally get a 5 pack of pre-filled for about oh...what $8?
Now you are probably going to need about 2 per day (at least) so 2/5ths of 8 is what $3.20.
Now, if you buy even a juice that is in the medium to high price range at say $17 per 30ml, this cost of refiling those same cartomizers will be about $1.12. Obviously you will still need to buy cartomizers from time to time, but you really only need 1-2 of those per week. So, figure this out, day after day, wasting $2.08.
The price gets even worse if you think you might need more than 2 cartos per day, and most people do.
Beyond that, the juice in most pre-filled cartomizers is awful. You can get high end juice at a third of the price you'd be getting the crappy pre-filleds for. If you can use a paper clip and a dropper bottle, you can refill. Housewives everywhere are doing it for heaven's sake. Please refill? For me?
You did ask about nic level. You're at 16, bump to 24mg.
Thanks, I'm in England, so I dont want to buy from abroad and pay international shipping fees. I really really don't want to get involved with syringes and liquids, it isn't about how easy or difficult it is, I'm just not comfortable with it. I've looked at the sd e cig I like the idea of that. I'm assuming that you can't just buy standard batteries that you can add any cartomisers onto? It seems like you have to buy cartomisers and batteries that are brand specific, riva for example warns not to use other pre-filled cartomisers as it can damage the battery
