(4) A Good Starter's Setup for a Beginning Vapor

2 Batteries, 1 Charger, and a USB/Wall Adaptor

Vision eGo Spinner or Joyetech eGo Twist variable voltage batteries. Need two.
A battery's expected time of use between charges is rated in "mAh". 100 mAh = 1 hour. A 650 mAh battery can be expected to work for 6.5 hours, a 1000 mAh battery expected to last 10 hours between charges. Thus you'll need more than a single battery to be able to vape all day.

Juice Delivery Devices:
I recommend getting at least a couple of clearomizers. These are easy tanks for beginners to fill and use. These have a replacement wick/coil head assembly which may need to be replaced every 10 - 20 days. These coil heads are not intercompatible between different models or brands.

Kanger Evod clearomizers

The Innokin iClear 16, Aspire CE5, Kanger T3S or Evod, or a Mini Vivi Nova made by Aspire or Vision are commonly recommended clearomizers. You can also upgrade to the better Aspire Nautilus Mini clearo tank. Get two; use the second one for a backup or to use with a second flavor. You might consider getting some replacement coil heads at this time of the particular clearomizer model that you choose (replacement coil heads are usually proprietary for the particular tank you choose).

*All the above can be found at most online e-cigarette retailers. You can buy these individually or in a starter kit. The e-liquid will need to be purchased separately.

Juice, or e-liquid:

For e-liquid, the typical nicotine recommendations are as follows:

1/2 pack per day or less = 6 mg nicotine
1 ppd = 12 mg
1 1/2 ppd = 18 mg
2 ppd = 24 mg​

Figure on consuming at least 2 - 3 ml of liquid daily. Bottles are usually 10 or 30 ml volume.
E-liquid generally has concentrated nicotine, propylene glycol (Pg), vegetable glycerin (Vg) and flavoring extracts. The ratio of Pg and Vg is known as the pg/vg ratio, and a 50/50 blend is common.
