    First off I would like to thank everyone who provided thoughts, answers, and provided some different products to consider. I spent most of the morning looking into all the products that were talked about here, and some idea's people gave. I have since changed my mind on what I was initially considering.

    It has came down to:

    (2) Kanger Mini Protank 2 Starter Kit -VV Seems like a good set-up and reletively cheap for everything you get. My concern with this one is the batteries. Not sure how the battery life will be.

    (2) Joyetech eGo-C TWIST - Manual 1000 mAh and a Charger and Pro Tank II - A little more expensive than option 1 but in the end might be worth it for the better batteries.

    (3) Innokin iTaste MVP V2.0 and Pro Tank II - A little over my total budget of $100 and without some liquid. I could stretch the budget for this if it would truly be a better setup than all the rest.

    Having those 3 options out there, I am kind of leaning towards #1 just because its a kit and I dont have to worry about if I have all the proper stuff to make a non kit work. I think for options #2 & #3 I have all parts I would need to get it to work, but am not sure if I am missing anything. If I missed something please let me know.

    Thanks

    Excellent. I'm glad to see you're taking the time to investigate your options!

    Depending on how you vape (and that does vary from person to person), a 650 mAh battery can last about 5-6 hours before needing to be recharged. Recharging can take 1-2 hours. For the sake of comparison, a 1000 mAh battery could last 9-10 hours before needing recharging. But, again, some of this depends on how you use them.

    The best thing about option #1, from my perspective, is that you're getting two batteries and two tanks, so you've got one and a backup from the start.

    This battery is 2600 mAh. It might last you two to three days. At some point, you will want some kind of backup. Even if you don't need something else to vape while it's charging, your setup could get lost or broken. One of the mottos of ECF is "backup your backups."

    The MVP also comes with all the parts you would need to get it to work. It even comes with an Iclear30 tank you'd be able to compare and contrast with the Protank II you're planning to get. You would not need replacement coils immediately, but you would need to plan to get some in the near future.

    Thanks madqatter, I had totally overlooked the MVP coming with a Iclear30 Tank. I was (still am if I go with it) planning on 2 of the battery setups and one ProTank II. So I would have 2 Batteries and 3 Tanks. So that should suffice for a little while.

    I am also considering a Vamo v3. Its a little more money (not much) than the MVP setup, but it doesnt have quite as much stuff with it either. I like it because its round and doesnt seem as bulky as the MVP. Was really considering getting the Vamo v3 to start and then in a month or so getting something like the MVP that I could just use when I am at home.

    Still not sure, but I am pretty much dead set on it being one of those two. After tons of searching and reading on here and various blogs, I think I am going to just skip the Ego style all together and just jump into the deep(er) end.....lol I think right now my brain is on information overload!!!!! Who knew these things were/could be so complex!!

    The financial adviser(wife), has given me a little more funding to play with. She said she doesnt want me to get something I am not completely happy with and just want to get something else in a week or 2. She knows me all to well as thats more than likely what would happen.

    Until recently, I carried a box of smokes everywhere I went. The MVP doesn't seem bulkier than that to me.

    A lot of people are totally satisfied with eGo setups and never go any further. They can be excellent. But if you're planning to get into mods anyway, why not just go ahead and do it?

    Sounds like she knows the difference between cheap and frugal. Better to be the latter; cheap really can cost more in the long run.

    Just to throw it in the mix you could think about 1 mvp and the mini protank set. The Kanger kit would make a terrific back up for the MVP. With 3 complete devices you would start out with a back up for your back up .

    LMAO, Never really thought of it like that.

    I am for certain mods are where I want to be, so like you said, I am just going to do it right away.

    I totally agree with that, and know first hand that cheaper for me is more costly in the end!!!! Thats why I have decided to just get what I want now and forget about it (relatively speaking )

    That thought had crossed my mind and was discussed with the wife too. I am just not sure I need/want all that to start with. I kind of like to get things one at a time so I can appreciate it, plus I like to get new things, so I dont want it all at one time!......LOL

    Welcome to ECF! You have gotten some great replies here and I will just add my newbie experience.

    I started out with the Kanger Evod starter kit. It is a great kit and has everything you need to get started except your choice of juice. I quit smoking with it right away and had no desire to smoke. After a couple of weeks I just felt I wanted more. Something that would give me a better "hit". I then purchased the MVP 2 and protank 2. I am in love! LOL This is an excellent set up and will last me 3 days before I need to charge it and can even charge it while I vape. Good luck to you with what you decide, this is a great alternative to get off of cigarettes.

    Thanks!!

    I am sure what happened to you with the Kanger Evod, would happen to me and I am just going to skip that step in the process. Unless I just get it and the MVP 2 kit that madqatter linked me to. That way I could have a little variety and could use one while the other is charging. I also really like the looks of the Vamo too. So in the end I am still undecided and no closer to my purchase. Well I guess I am closer, I know my choices and what I want, just have to figure out the order I will be getting them in....lol

    Hello again.
    I am sorry for any confusion we may have caused with so many different variations of gear out there. But to be perfectly honest, the biggest bang for the buck is the MPV2 that you posted. Altho it comes with everything you need to start(except the ejuice), let me just point out that you can use your telephone charger to charge this with. I have an HTC EVO and the exact same fitting on my phone as the MPV2 uses. What this means is that you can go to Wal-mart or target or wherever and buy an 8-10 dollar car charger and still be on the go while charging and vaping. When I was still working, this saved me tons of time. I did not originally suggest this because of your orig choice so I was trying to stay along those lines.
    Any choice of the ones listed in these posts would be a fine choice.
    And madqatter is totally correct in that the MPV2 is slightly slimmer than a box of smokes and the body is just about the same length.
    I am not sure if you said or not if the wife smokes. Both of you could each easily get a set of your own(of almost any of the choices displayed here) and still stay around the $100 ish mark.

    Good luck on whatever you decide. Sorry all the info can be overwhelming to someone just starting out. Let us know how it goes.
