    It's worth looking on supply websites then working it out yourself.
    First look at buying a starter kit (get advice on what would suit you best), then look at buying juice.
    Either way, you will always save cash (and your health).

    Try heaven-gifts.com. But they're on a Chinese new year holiday atm and won't be shipping until a week or so.
    But surf these forums for other good sites! People around here review a lot of the supplier sites.

    Really simple and rough: $200 setup will get you 3 months then 'bank' $10 per week for future attys, juices, empty carts.

    I agree with this advice,

    this would get you started with a good supply for about 3 months and as is said here,
    your average ongoing costs will be approx -- 10.00 per week

    this is far better than on tobacco costs-------

    and better for you too -------

    There is alcohol in the Queens essences already, so you may have added just a bit too much. If you are feeling game, give it another vape* and see if the pain comes back. If it does, it may be best to start a thread in the Health section.

    I assume no responsibility for anything that may happen to you.

    Check out the suppliers who ship to Australia - [FONT="]e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/australian-e-smokers/74937-suppliers-who-ship-australia.html[/FONT]

    Plenty of suppliers but youll have to do a bit of research to find what best suits you. Best value kit would depend on the situation; then factor in you will need to buy spare parts, batteries atomizers, cartridges & their comparative costs.

    My preference is the M601 kit from AbsolutelyeCigs.com and still searching for a steady source of juice.

    Need some help guys. I have a Tornado and a green smoke e cig. I am not confident in bringing the Tornado out in public and the green smoke e cig is kinda crap. I am looking for something that can not turn heads in public as much. Cant decide on the 510 or the 901 or can someone recomend something else. The 510 would be handy cause then i have the chargers and the carts from the tornado but i really dont mind please all the help you can give in this matter would be appreciated. I like throat hit dont care so much about vap and battery time but i do care for quality (something that will not break or chew through atomizers) thanks all.

    I got some 30ml brown bottles with the niple lid (like an eye dropper) from 2 chemists for $1.00 each. Just go to a few chemists and ask for the small brown glass bottles. Or try aromatherapy (hippy) shops they sometimes have them.

    Since you have a tornado, the logical direction would be a 510, battery life isnt great, I have got around this by getting 901 battery with an adapter, next to the chameleon, I like the 510.

    my 2 cents worth

    510's your best bet.. I have ordered a lot of 510 equipment and they're great. If you're worried about battery life get a PCC. And if you're still worried about public vaping, get white batt's as they look more like a cigarette with a red/orange LED on the end.

    Get the ones with the black dropper teats - they're made of nitrile, not rubber. Aromatherapy shops are the go, or ebay:

    AROMA QUEEN Essential Oil 24mm DROPPER
    AROMA QUEEN Essential Oil 20mm DROPPER

    There's plenty of bottles on there as well.

    Rubber perishes. It may not be an issue, but I'd rather be on the safe side when it comes to what I inhale. And if you use oil based flavourings (contrary to the recommendations) it can significantly accelerate the issue.
