Best Vape Starter Kits – Mod & Tank or All In One System? There is a difference, and it helps to know before you buy. I have chosen three of the best mod and tank kits and AIO/Pod Mod kits to get you started on your vaping journey!
Things have changed a lot in the last few years. When I started vaping, way back in 2008/9, there was not much choice. Just dodgy kits, sold over the counter in gas stations, made by brands I’d never heard of.
But things were developing. Brands in the US and China were around then, developing and planning for the future, but back in 2009, the vape market was A LOT different to what it was now. I struggled to find a decent setup and get settled. It took a good long while, and quite a bit of cash, to find my feet.
In 2018, however, you’re literally spoilt for choice – there are almost too many decent vape starter kits around at the moment. Whether you’re talking about mods or tanks, or pod mods and AIO devices, there are literally thousands of combinations. But what the best vape starter kits around right now?
Best Vape Starter Kits – What Kind of Vaper Are You?
Are you looking for a sub-ohm, big-hitting tank with a powerful mod? If so, you’ll want to go the box mod and sub-ohm tank route.
However, if you’re after something that more closely resembles smoking, a mouth to lung inhale versus a direct to lung hit, you’ll likely be more suited to an AIO (all in one) device or a pod mod.
For this reason, I’ve broken my suggestions up into two sections: sub-ohm and mod kits and AIO and Pod Mod devices – and there are three options in each. This way, whatever style of vaper you aspire to be, you’re covered for now and can choose a setup that suits you best.
Best Vape Starter Kits – Sub-Ohm Tank and Mod Kits
If you’re using a sub-ohm tank and mod, you’re going to be chasing clouds and getting decent flavor.
This type of vaping is most popular for this very reason. If you’re trying to get off the stinkies, you’re definitely going to enjoy using these setups.
Just be aware that most sub-ohm tanks are direct to lung (DTR) on the inhale, meaning you hit them like an inhaler, unlike a cigarette which is more moouth-to-lung (MTL) inhale.
There are my picks for the three best sub-ohm tank and mod starter kits right now.
Best Vape Starter Kits – AIO and Pod Mod Kits
If you’re fresh off the stinkies (or looking to quit ASAP) and you want something simple with zero learning curve, an AIO or Pod Mod is definitely the way to go.
Why? Simple: you can get one, load it up, and start vaping. You don’t need to worry about coils, priming coils, wattage and/or TC modes. These stripped back devices are designed to be simple and closely mimic the sensation of smoking – they’re MTL hits versus the DTL hits you get from most sub-ohm tanks.
The pod mod and AIO market is growing fast; there are new products launching every week. I’ve tried a bunch of these sorts of devices in 2017/18 and the ones listed below are my picks for you right now. They offer solid performance, are easy to use, and are all cost-effective.
