    2. 3 kanger evod ego clearomizers

    3. 10 replacement atomizer heads at 1.8ohms

    Pretty much the same setup I use as a backup. Solid kit, but might want to throw in another charger in case you misplace it. Also, only one battery? Get at least two to rotate.

    Can't go wrong with the c-twists. If you want a suggestion I would recommend a vision spinner rather than the ctwists because the spinner is 1300 mahs (so longer battery life) though it is a bit thicker.

    Okay thank you ill think about another battery. Also do you dry burn your atomizers or just replace them when they are done? do you recommend me getting a dry burner?

    Good solid start. Just a recommendation but I would start with lower voltages on the twist and adjust to taste. Start at 3.1 and try it. If you don't like then just move it up a little and try again

    I am iffy on the tank. Some do not have a good experience with them. Try a mini vivi nova top coil or just a ce5 to get used to it. Bottom coils have some requirements to get good performance , things you need to adjust to just starting out.

    Usually I toss them. I've played around with soaking them overnight in Vodka and dry burning but the results are never as good as a fresh coil.

    Also include the wall plug for the charger, everything else looks great.

    I second a backup battery.

    I agree with SimianSteam! Good set up, but a back up battery & charger is a must. Take the advice so you don't learn the hard way. The battery should perform most of day without worry. Obviously VV is a nice step up from fixed and is easy to get acclimated with. The EVOD is a great clearo!(I own four) The only drawback is the limited liquid capacity, but you have extra's do no worries!

    +1 for the MVS kit. Those heads can be rebuilt, dry burning helps but it's not the same as a new one.

    +10 on the extra battery. I started with basically the same thing except I got the vision 1300 mAH batteries. They'll last all day (and part of the night) with moderate vaping. You need an extra because it takes 3 or 4 hours to recharge and you won't be vaping during that time with 1 battery. The EVOD tanks are decent. Don't use cinnamon or citrus flavors though. They are polycarbonate and will crack or melt. Dry burning doesn't require anything but some knowledge, tweezers and pliers. Look around on here or youtube for instructions. It's pretty easy

    This is an excellent starting point ... you should be happy with the set up. The real work will come with finding the right juice flavor, and blend for you ... good luck.

    Like the setup! definitely 2nd battery is a must! I love EVOD tanks but if you want to not worry about tank cracker juices you could also consider an Aro Pyrex Bottom Coil Tank: ARO Pyrex Bottom Coil Tank

    They are just about the same cost as the EVOD tanks but made with glass. However, I don't believe the atomizers are cross compatible with Evod atomizers. But considering I'm thinking of you being cost consciousness I think the Pyrex will be a nice fit.

    Good start, I would add.
    Joye Mini AC Wall to USB
    Add second battery, then you can do 2 flavors. Also can charge one and use one at night.

    Welcome to ECF and good luck with everything. We're behind you.

    Awesome "intro" starting point!

    1.8Ω - 2.2Ω is the target resistance of coils on unregulated batteries, so with a twist you could go more 2.0Ω-2.8Ω and still get a good vape...trick is to NOT overdrive the boost/buck circuitry that kicks the volts up on the twist (have heard stories of people burning out those small IC's)

    Excellent starting point! There are much larger more powerful "workhorse" rigs out...but this is the most tunable and adjustable rig for "beginners" for the most part! Head on over to the library and learn a bit more on the "new" stuff that is out there that makes those twists for the most part almost obsolete

    The ECF Library

    This chart can help, gives you a mathematical calculation to look at..ultimately your tastebuds and how you vape will determine the sweet spot!


    Welcome and Vape On!!!

    Only issue with going for higher res on an eGo Twist is that you'll lessen your battery life.

    (This is the point where new vapers start getting confused. LoL)
