    Default Where to start...

    So, I've decided to do some research and try to make the switch. I tried once before, picking up a Blu eCig at the gas station on an impulse. I didn't much care for it (flavor wise) and after the disposable ran out, I just went right back to analogs. That was about a year ago, and after meeting a friend of a friend last weekend who vaped, my interest is piqued and I want to try again with a better, refillable rig.

    Now come questions... HOW does one go about choosing the right starter kit? I've been doing just a bit of research this afternoon for about two hours and my head is already spinning with the different options and mods I've seen, not that I really understand what I'm looking at yet. Ideally, I would love to be able to walk into a B&M store locally, see and hold a few different models, make a choice and walk out with a kit. I'm having a hard time finding local places like that, and wondering if any even exist in my area.

    So, is there a B&M store finder on this site, or anywhere online? I'm in South Jersey, Cherry Hill area if that helps...

    I think I'm leaning toward the eGo starter kit based on some posts I've read on this site. Any thoughts, opinions, alternate recommendations? Tips for must-have accessories I need to make sure to get up front?

    Thanks for the link and quick reply. I'll check it out and see what's around.

    I was hoping to stay on the Jersey side if possible to avoid tolls and parking, and/or train fare and a walk... But thanks for the reply. I will go over the bridge if I can't find anything around here.

    for value, flavor, and simplicity, either order online or walk into a vape shop and pick up a couple Ego-type batteries, preferably the Vision Spinner and/or Smok Winder (variable voltage types), and top it off with 2 or 3 EVODs or T3 clearomizers. Also pick up an Ego charger, and a 5-pack of spare atomizer heads. You'll find the Evod heads fit in quite a few other clearos, as your collection grows.
    This set up should be fairly inexpensive, easy to use, and easy to maintain, and the EVODs are great on flavor/vapor.
    Odds are you'll pay a higher price at a B&M, but if you're willing to pay for the service, go for it.

    Hello and welcome to ECF. There may be a lot of experimentation (at least there was for me) before you find something that works for you. But keep trying.

    I am new too and it really helps to visit a store to talk to someone face to face vs. just reading online. Store are a little more $$, but help for newbies like us.

    Personally I think the best beginners set up is a vision spinner or smok winder DO NOT get the ego c twist for a tank get a pro tank or a evod I love the evods there are kick ... little tanks you should be able to get a battery and a tank for $50 under with the ones mentioned

    Hello, and welcome. I've only been vaping for 3 weeks, and off the cigarettes for nearly 2 weeks now.

    I second the recommendation for an ego battery and evod tank. Very, very happy with mine.

    Start out with something reasonably cheap to see whether you like it. You can upgrade later, but no point spending too much on something that might not suit.

    Don't forget to get yourself a spare battery so you have one to use while the other is charging. And a charger of course!

    As for flavours, personally I do not like the tobacco flavours, and prefer fruits. You just need to experiment a bit. Don't expect to save any money for the first few weeks until you find what works for you.
