    Go with whatever you are most comfortable with concerning battery size. Most people here who are successful non-smokers started out with "cigalikes". That's what I used to quit.

    However, it only took me about 3 weeks to decide I needed something bigger in order to stay off of the smokes. I grew very frustrated with the number of batteries I had to carry with me to last out the day, and then it took all evening to charge them up again. There's a better way if you can somehow get over that idea that your battery has to be the size of a cigarette.

    Just trying to save you the money you will spend on a kit you may only use for a 4 - 5 weeks. That money could have gone to more juice flavors to try or different juice attachments to try. An ego battery setup right from the start is not that much bigger than a cigalike but will give you far more battery time and more options in choosing a better juice attachment.

    Quality vendors will have them listed with their brand name.
    for example:
    ElectronicStix.Com Kanger EVOD 650mAh Starter Kit
    or
    ElectronicStix.Com Smok KEAR Beginners Kit

    That Kanger EVOD kit is probably about the best "step up" you will find.

    Thanks for the advice I work at home so I've become quite good at always having a charged battery. I ordered a higher nic level I had 18 going to 24. I do like the cig-alikes but I would like to try something different. I will get the Ego is there a big difference between the spinner or twister? Should I look on this forum? I don't want to waste anyone's time explaining it to me.

    Darlin, don't worry about wasting anyone's time here. You ask a question and there's always someone here who's eager to answer it.

    I would go with the ego style. If size is a big concern, the plain ego with no adjustment is slightly smaller but lacks the adjustment.
    A larger device makes quitting much easier. I worked my way up slowly, but wasn't successful at quitting until I got to the twist + Vivi nova . A manual battery does seem a little awkward at first but you'll adjust to it quickly.

    If you want to spend a little more to be assured of good quality get a Joye, Vision, or Kangor brand battery from a vendor listed under forum suppliers at the top of the page.

    I think the spinner and twist are pretty similar. I haven't used the spinner but it's been recommended for quite a while. I think the twist is a little higher quality and price.

    Try this menthol juice....well know popular site with great customer service... 555 Menthol E Juice Baker Vapor - Mt Baker Vapor - Electronic Cigarettes ..I recommend a 65PG/35VG blend initially..should give U plenty of flavor and vapor..and U pick the nicotine strength U want..0-6-12-18-24 mg

    You really don't need a Variable Volt ego battery twist or spinner which are almost identical....a fixed voltage ego battery is just fine and used by thousands of people ..and these will last U all day for about a year each...and this is a great starter kit with 2 of everything, from a great company in CT-USA for a great price $44...and these are NOT garbage junk batteries...and these CE5 clearomizer tanks that hold the liquid are very simple to fill and once a month just replace the coil ($1.60 each) which just unscrews in and out....... DV eGo-T Starter Kit - 1100mah

    This custom kit consists of:

    1. (2) eGo 1100 mAh battery
    2. (2) DVCE5 replacable coil Clearomizers with Long Wicks (with spring connector for compatibility will all eGo)
    3. (1) eGo Case
    4. (1) Wall Charger
    5. (1) USB 420mah Charging cable

    and these replaceable 5 pack coils ($8) will last U about 7 months with the 2 that comes with the starter kit.... http://www.discountvapers.com/dv-ce5...-4ohms-5-pack/

    Both these vendors are recommended from this forums..

    U will need nothing else until about 7 months except some monthly juice for $11 at www.mtbakervapor.com

    initial investment 44 + 11=$55...then monthly $11....and this system, is the simplest there is...no hassles, no headaches..
