    Default New here, want to vape, not smoke

    Greetings from Canada, figured I would join as I could use some experienced advice. I have done some research online the past few weeks but still find myself having trouble deciding on a starter kit. Any recommendations ? I keep hearing the ego twist is the best way to go for beginners but was wondering if there are other/better kits that offer the best bang for your buck.

    I smoke about a pack of analogs a day and if you can recommend an e juice strength also that would be very appreciated.

    Thanks in advance and will be keeping up with the forums.

    Check out Mt Baker for the MVP 2.... Read the reviews about this beast. Use the code 10percentoff and get it for $54.00 shipped... with 2 free juices.

    +1 for canvape...

    I was about a pad and 12mg worked well for me, I wouldn't try over 18mg from only smoking a pad. Budget plays a big part in what setup to get. Ego twist/spinner/evod vv is where you will probably end up in the near future so is a great place to start. Regular ego batteries work well if you use 1.8ohm clearomizers and are about half the price or less than the variable voltage batteries I mentioned first.

    As for a clearo allot recommend evods or protanks which are good but leak atleast a little bit onto your battery at some point which I can't be bothered with. VISION vivi nova minis work well and don't leak unless left on their side or the off chance a bad head in it that can be replaced cheaply.

    Whichever you decide to get be sure to have atleast 2 batteries and 2 clearos along with a charger and liquids obviously.

    when I started, my local B&M recommended the Vamo 2, which is a bigger mod than the Ego type, it is also VV/VW, I am still using it after almost 4 month, but quality on this is a bit lacking, you might want to look into the Innokin SVD (if you like tube type mods) Innokin MVP 2.0 (for a box mod), I looked and handled the SVD at the B&M, and promptly went home and ordered it. It seems to be of a better build and materials quality.
    So these are my

    Keep up the good vape!

    If you're not yet looking to get a mod (such as the aforementioned and much beloved MVP), I think you should consider this. There are cheaper kits, but this has two glass clearomizers (no worries about juices that don't work in plastic tanks) and two variable voltage batteries (basically like eGo twists, different brand). Kanger makes good product. There are also some "build your own kit" options out there-- someone may have a link handy.

    Hi Managehat! Glad to see a fellow Canadian vapor. I think the ego twist would be the best bang for the buck to start with. If you are just starting out, then you may not get the full benefit of the variable voltage ecigs that are out there. Once you start trying out different ejuices you will start to get an idea of what you like. Then maybe in a couple of months move up to a better one such as the evic. Also, when I first started I made the mistake of going to the highest nic concentration possible. BAD IDEA! I think I was sick for a good couple of days before I realized it was all the nicotine. I agree with stardose and don't go any higher than 18mg.

    Ditto on the eGo Twist...or the Vision Spinner. Ditto on the 18mg. I wouldn't fret over getting plastic tanks, tho. Yeah, they might be effected by know crackers, but cheaper to start out with. You'll be spending more money as time goes on for bigger and better. But simple but effective is a good way to start. Welcome to ECF and vape on!

    Welcome to the forum. Get your post up to 5, then you can post in the Canadian section and request the list for Canada vendors, since you can't import vape gear into Canada.

    I would check out everything. Sounds like you want to bypass the ego step, and go directly to a protected variable device. Makes sense to me. Make sure your devise of choice can put out at least 15 watts. This won't matter at first, but if you get into rba's and building your own coils, you'll be bummed if you have a device that will only deliver 11 watts. The SVD would be a good choice, it has come way down in price since the Itaste 134 & VTR have come out. The VTR is a great box mod that tickles my fancy.

    The best advice I can give is to check everything out, read the reviews and comparisons, check out YouTube for the devices you are interested in. Then purchase the quality device that calls your name.

    While the MVP is a decent device, it's 2 major draw backs are the internal battery, can't be replaced, and it only puts out 11 watts. major deal breaker for me, since I enjoy my vape at around 15 watts.
