Started vaping last year when I picked up a Victory cartomizer starter kit for 99¢. Wasn't too impressed with the functionality of the system (poor drags, stock cartomizer flavors horrible) so I pretty much abandoned it for awhile, plus I hadn't been too invested in it money-wise so it didn't seem like a big loss.
I thought I'd give it another go with a slightly better system, so I picked up a Tsunami G Class kit recently from the local smoke shop -3.7V with 2x EGO 650mah battery with 3x 2.4ml clearomizer for various flavor liquids. Have been much more impressed with the overall vape quality and battery life, and I picked up some flavors recommended on this forum. The only concern I had was the residue on the battery each time I refilled the tank, which really bothered me until I read that this happens with almost all atomizers and is not cause for alarm - I simply wipe it with a paper towel and it is good to go.
I'm very glad I found this forum - very comprehensive and many good recommendations! My only gripe was the new members forum was still full of what I felt was much more advanced topics than I was able to understand - it probably exists but I did not find a noob's wiki. I had wanted to post some questions but felt like I had no idea what I was getting into or even trying to ask half the time, with all the terminology, options, and what not, so I read the various threads for the last 3 weeks and finally feel confident to know at least something about vaping. I also didn't want to just throw money at a bunch of different setups, though I've been very tempted to pick up something much nicer.
