    Default Step it up

    Ok so I've been vaping for about a month, having a tough time not smoking analogs. I think I should move on from the cig-a-likes. I asked for advice from u guys and was told to get an Ego Spinner/twister, my question is would it be a good choice to go to a 510t/510 as my next step up or should I go right to the ego? Please remember this is a process for me and I don't mind gradually increasing to a bigger device but I don't think I will like anything to big. Also can anyone recommend a good menthol e-liquid,it doesn't have to mimic newports( although that would be nice).

    welcome to ECF Crazy girl ... grab that eGo and get your vape on ... can't help you with menthol as I've never done menthol (even when I smoked).

    Cheers

    I was in the same situation as you about 6 months ago. I'd definitely suggest an ego twist over the 510/510ts. I went to a twist after upgrading from my own 510 and never looked back (in fact I just wound up giving the 510 away because it wasn't nearly as satisfying for all the additional hassle). Wish I could suggest some menthol flavors, but I'm a tobacco kind of guy. Good luck!

    Hi and welcome!
    Former menthol head here, Salem light, Marlboro silver, Pall Mall menthol....... Honestly, I looked for satisfying menthols, found a couple, but they did not do it for me. I liked em, don't get me wrong, but I quickly wandered into "flavors". So far I'm liking dessert types. Orange cream, lemon cream puff and occasionally spearmint and creme de menthe. What I found was that I wanted throat hit, not necessarily menthol. The guy I order from can add throat hit at different levels if desired. Purevapes.

    The menthols I tried were e-luminate (was so-so from a local store) and also Arctic Wolf from vaporgod. The latter was an IN YOUR FACE kind of menthol, so I mixed it with tobacco or whatever flavor I had on hand. Vaporgod also carries a milder one.

    I have two ego knock off batteries and an ego twist. Happy with all of em. I also have a kanger protank 2 and just got a mini protank 2. LOVE THEM. The mini just came in the mail today and it's knockin' my socks off!

    So if I get the ego twist do I need to get anything to fill the tanks, I'm not sure what a drip tip is. Do I need to order anything other than the battery, tanks, charger and juice

    Many of your cigalikes are actually larger than the little 510(T). So those would just be going sideways, and not a step up.

    Now when getting an eGo, I need to express some caution because of all the knockoffs out there. (all the battery incidences of late in the news have been ego knockoffs used with cheap/wrong chargers) So make sure it's a JoyeTech, Kanger, or SmokTech battery, and only use the proper charger that comes with the kit for the respective batteries.

    Do I just go to those websites? How will I know it's not a knock off.

    Not necessarily. I tilt mine and add juice. Some use a blunt syringe tip. They're pretty easy to fill without one.

    Get an eGo. Fixed or Variable, it's up to you.

    I went from cig-a-likes (total failure, cut down by 10% at most) to 510/808 mini e-cigs (cut down by 50%) and then got a pair of eGo batteries in a kit.

    That was the end of my smoking.

    I don't believe little e-cigarettes are effective enough for most smokers. (but that's another thread...)
