    I found this site, did my homework and decided on a dse 901. I am in love with it. I bought my kit from the smokeless shop, and they sent my batteries fully charged. So, I went from smoking analogs to my pv in one day. I haven't returned to analogs in the last week. Needless to say, I am in love :wub: with vaping. Have even become a walking advertisement for it. Told my dr about it, and now she wants me to bring in cards to give to her other patients who have had trouble quitting smoking.
    My issue is that I am attempting to get my mother in law to start vaping as she has copd and lung cancer. We would like to keep her around as long as possible. She has tried using my 901, but finds the draw too difficult. Can anyone recommend an e-cig with an easier draw? I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Debbi

    I bought my first 901 kit from Katey at thesmokelessshop. She met me at a local restaurant/bar. Sweet lady! I quit the first day I started vaping too. It was easy.
    As for an easier draw, I don't know. The 901 has a pretty easy draw. The 510 is a little harder. Maybe some of the pen style ones are lighter. I don't know. Never used them. Someone else could tell you that.
    Great to see another Michigander in here! you're the third new one I've seen today. Must be the smoking ban at work. Good for us.
    If you haven't signed the petition yet you really should here's a link http://ecigssavelives.info/

    Easily the best PV for a newbie is the 901 IMO. The draw is very easy (make sure you mother in law does not cover the atty hole).
    Filling the carts is a breeze. You only need to top off the cart and it will easily take 10-12 drops. You can't do that on a 510.

    I am a 510 guy but to make things very easy on a newcomer the 901 is the way to go.

    Get a manual battery for the 901. If you push and hold the button you really dont have to draw, it will send the vapor to you. That is as light as it gets I think.

    I have tried every model e-cig on the market and if you are against using a large PV (GG, Chuck, Super T, etc), I found the KR-808D1 the absolute best e-cigarette made. It requires NO fuss and lasts for nearly a whole day of vaping. The 901/501/etc requires way too much fussing with the carts and the fibers get stuck in the atty causing that weird burning taste. Not to mention the leaking issues. The KR808 has NO issues, but once you get hooked on vaping, I highly recommend getting a real vaporizer. I use the GGTS with the new AFS and it is honestly the greatest vaping experience you can have.

    Not to rain on your parade Zaiden...but every PV has issues. And the cartos have known issues that one might not care about but it is a major issue to me.

    I do believe there is going to be lots more of us Michiganders with the ban. I did sign the petition, but thanks.

    I will have to check and see if that is what she is doing. Thanks for the advice!

    I have ordered a manual battery because I wanted to try dripping. So, I will have her try it once I get it. Thanks for the advice

    Zaiden,

    I appreciate the answer. I am planning to try what the others suggested, and maybe if they don't work I'll try yours.

    I want to thank everyone for their help. And, when the manual battery comes in, I will post and let you know how she does.

    I received the manual batteries for my 901 today. She tried it with the manual battery, and lo and behold, she loved it. We have ordered her a few atomizers, with a couple manual batteries, and some e-liquid. So, as soon as she gets it, everyone in the family will be thrilled!!

    Thanks to all!!

    I have to agree with this post on the KR808. But I see all is well. I also think they are both a good choice. ( I purchased a 901 adaptor /atty so I could try different juices right away...)
    But in most cases newbies I recommend the two piece Ecig for it being less of a hassle (or choice for someone not new.).
    But All is Well she loves it.. YEAH....

    glad to hear that. I've found the draw with the DSE901 lighter than the 510, KR808D-1 and m40x so was at a loss for an easier to draw PV. Since you're also new to using a PV I'd suggest as a next step checking out the cartridge mod (for modification) subforum here. There are a number of ways people have come up with to make the filler wick to the atomizer better.

    I have heard about adapting a KR808 battery to go with a 901 atty. Is there an adapter needed?

    Oh. I lived near Merriman rd. and Venoy for 15 years. Just a little north of you. I'm about 50 miles west now in the Irish Hills.

    The threads on the DSE901 battery and KR808D-1 battery at the same. Ditto with the DSE901 atomizer and KR808D-1 cartomizer.

    The difference is air holes for the draw in the threads of the KR808D-1 battery. The DSE901 atomizer has a hole in the side for air draw so the DSE901 batteries don't have air holes. So you'll need an adapter for the air draw to put a KR808D-1 cartomizer on the DSE901 battery.

    You won't need anything to put a DSE901 atomizer on a KR808D-1 battery.

    I know the area around Merriman and Venoy.
    I used to go to the Irish Hills for vacation every year for about three years. (Long story) It really is a beautiful area. Maybe I can talk my bf into going for a little trip soon. I am sure he would love it, too.

    Thank you for the answer bsoplinger. How about charging the KR808? Can I charge it in the 901 charger, or do I have to get a charger for the KR808?

    Thanks for all the help everyone!
