People always ask us where to start if they are new to vaping.
As a leading dealer of top quality vape goods, VaporDNA is happy to answer. We know jargon and lingo can overwhelm newcomers. That’s why we created this guide to buying your first starter kit.
What’s a Starter Kit?Vapes have different components. They are sometimes sold separately, but we bundle them into starter kits to make your life easier.
What Does a Starter Kit Come With?The most honest answer is, it depends. However, in general, you will get:
- A mod
- A tank
- And more, depending on which one you grab.
- The Project Sub-Ohm® Edition Vandy Vape Simple Ex Mtl Squonk Starter Kit is an excellent way to get everything you need for a great MTL vape experience all in one box.
- The Wismec Active 80w And Amor Ns Sub-Ohm Tank Starter Kit features durable design, rugged grips, and great tasting clouds.
- The new Vaporesso Tarot Baby 85w Tc Starter Kit delivers the latest and best in vaping all in one compact setup. It’s elegant in terms of both its engineering, and its aesthetics.
What are Mods, Tanks, and Coils?Good questions. They’re all components that make up certain vaporizers. While some vapes are single-piece devices, others let you upgrade and customize your experience by swapping out the latest parts.
Mod:The name comes from the word “modified.” It’s the central part of a vape. This is where you find:
- Your battery.
- Your screen with vaping data readouts (if applicable).
- Your trigger and control buttons (again, if applicable).
What are some good mods to get?If you are looking for a new box mod or your first one ever, you have a large selection to choose from. Base your decision on a combination of your personal style, and the features you are looking for.
Tank:This is the place that holds your E-Liquid. There’s typically a metal coil that heats up the juice to turn it into vapor. Not all tanks are created equal. For instance, there is a category of tanks called sub-ohm tanks. These devices feature a resistance of less thane 1 ohm. Why does that matter? Because it bumps up the power output of fixed-voltage devices. Long story short, you get bigger tastier clouds out of the same device.
What are some good tanks to get?Here are a few that have gotten rave reviews, and even critical acclaim in some cases from certain parts of the vape world.
The SMOK TFV12 Prince Cobra Edition Sub-Ohm Tank is noted for having a very well designed airflow setup. In some designs, tanks are designed to include the mouthpiece part of a vape. If your tank has a good airflow system, you will be able to get the type of draw that feels satisfying to you.
The SMOK TFV8 Baby V2 Sub-Ohm Tank is the latest edition of a beloved series of tanks. It features a powerful combination of the A1, A2, A3 coils that let you maximize your vape experience at any wattage range.
The Tank Comes with the Coils?Yes.
Coil:Some people refer to the coil as the atomizer. This is the part of the vape that heats up the juice, and turns it into vapor. It’s going to be located in different places depending on the device or starter kit you have. Coils have seen many incarnations. Some are disposable. Some are even do-it-yourself style, meaning people wind them up themselves.
What Are Some Good Coils to Get?This one depends, again on the type of atomizer you happen to have. However, here are some high quality models that tend to fly off the shelves.
Aspire Revvo Replacement Coil Pack: These feature a unique “stove top” design that makes them super easy to swap in and out.
SMOK Tfv8 X-Baby Replacement Coils: These coils work with an incredibly popular sub-ohm tank that vapers all over the world have fallen in love with. That is the SMOK TFV8 X-Baby Sub-Ohm Tank. Sub-ohming, as you remember, is a popular vaping style among heavy vapers, and also ex-smokers who need to get a strong hit that reminds them of the feel of smoking a cigarette. (But with a much better selection of flavors.)
You will find that no matter what tank you own, or wind up purchasing, VaporDNA can probably help you find replacement coils for it.
