    First of all we are going to need a price range you are willing to spend. My first was a lavatube and it worked great for what I needed at the time. The new lavatube 2.0 that's out is really supposed to be a good device and nice and easy for beginners.

    bk78 is right, what is you acceptable range for spending? Things are changing fast lately and there have been some new additions in the last couple of months. You may want to spend a little more now rather than have to spend more later to replace the first mod. Personally, I would recommend the VAMO for a starter mod, I don't have one but have heard good things and it is only $46 on canvape.com. It is variable voltage and variable wattage.

    Remember you will need to buy batteries and a charger as well, and adapters for some mods so that things like a stardust with an ego thread can still be used on the mod. The Vamo has a ego threaded connector.

    I just ordered this image.jpg . It's from QZI mods $200 shipped just to give you an idea. But if I were you I would go with something like nickfit suggest the vamo would be great for you to start out.

    Yeah, I've owned a Vamo for only 5 days, but with my brief time using it it has seemed extremely great. I believe Field of Vapor also just put out a review for it.

    Here it is.

    HUGREN, IMP lava tube is quit large about 5inches ,and heavy,i have a lambo-4 which is the same thing; also have a1300mah spinner made by vision,which IMO is a great mod for only 25$,I would get 2 so one could be on charger will using the other,I know by experance that the spinner give just good a prof. as my2600mah lambo ,at1/3 the cost, check out the eGo 18650 mod, they cost 22$ and reviews say they last a long time up to 4 days per charge they use a 2600mah battery, and can be charged with ego charger costabout 9$, also the spinner does not need any adaptors for differant atties or cartos, this is just my in put on this do what you think will serve your needs.....

    I'm pretty sure those are a eGo Twist remake, but I could be mistaken.

    If you dont dig "tube" mods, the smok VV gripper works and is inexpensive.

    I would personally go with the following a bit more pricey than the Lavatube but has the features you ever need and uses two types of battery mini for on the go and big if you going for a long car ride or just sitting at home.

    https://www.canvape.com/product-p/egovw.htm

    Get 1 or two of those batts for long life.
    https://www.canvape.com/product-p/imr18650.htm

    Get two of these for compact size.
    https://www.canvape.com/product-p/imr18350.htm

    And I have this charger works great.

    I agree with the vamo suggestions. Fairly simple and intuitive, cheaply priced well built mod.

    I agree... the Vamo is variable voltage and variable wattage... something pretty new and you can get it cheap with the Vamo. Spend a little more and get a lot more.

    I had a longer explanation and my wireless went down and I lost the post... so here is a shorter version.

    It is not so much a "no" to the lavatube as a "yes" to the Vamo. I have not used either device, but I have heard good things about the Vamo. The Vamo is variable wattage, the Lavatube is not. The Vamo is accurate, I am not sure about the Lavatube. AS I have read and I am now experienceing myself, vapers have a tendency to want the newest stuff and end up buying a lot of gear. The Vamo is the new thing, variable wattage and it still has everything the Lavatube has and is more accurate I would venture. It all comes down to how much you want to spend and whether you can foresee yourself wanting to upgrade next month, then again the month after that. That gets expensive, moreso if you start on a older technology or take smaller steps. But you may be totally satisified with the Lavatube and $50 for a kit is a great deal!

    Take into consideration quality and durability as well, the Vamo is pretty new so it is yet to be seen how long it will last. Search for Lavatube problems here on ECF, I really couldn't tell you how durable it is myself. What are the warranties on each of them? The more expensive mods can run hundreds of dollars but are much higher quality. You can get variable voltage in a twist for less than $25, but it is disposable after 250-300 charges. I owe three twists and they do the job. It is really up to you, but my advice is that if you can afford more go bigger... if you can't afford too much now go smaller... then save for a few months all that money you would have used buying cigarettes and buy one of the big name mods with great reputation for quality, accuracy and durability.


    Edit: it got pretty long again anyways... :)

    If you have up to 150.00 to spend, one word to you: Vamo

    What they said. :) I think a variable wattage mod, like zmax or the vamo makes more sense than the lavatube at this point.

    I'm personally waiting for the eVic to show up, but it's going to be at least double the price of the Vamo, for a fancier menu and hopefully better quality. :)
