Canvape Starter Kit 2

Here's a tried and true starter kit certain to satisfy. It's an eGo style system with two batteries, two clearomizers, a USB wall charger, USB charger cable, and a nice carry case to protect it all.

You can also choose three 10 ml bottles of eLiquid. That is roughly equivalent to one carton of smokes. And with tons of flavors to choose from, you get to mix and match in a good quantity to help you decide what your favorite vape will be.

Best of all, this kit costs about the same as one carton of traditional cigarettes ... once you make this investment, all you need to do is buy eLiquid. 

We're also going to recommend some upgrades immediately. Don't worry, your new "kit" will still save you plenty of $$ as an alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes.

The batteries included in the Canvape starter kit are your choice of either 650 mAh or 1100 mAh. Each 650 mAh battery will last you about 5.5 to 6.5 hours before needing recharging: that's a total of between 11 and 13 hours. Each 1100 mAh battery will last you between 10 and 11 hours before needing recharging: that's a total of between 20 and 22 hours. Other than capacity, the only different is height. The 1100 mAh batteries are much taller – with much more capacity. Same price, though – so it's your choice.

This may sound strange, but I would pick the 650 mAh batteries. As a starter kit, they are more "stealthy" and will fit the hand better. I would get a third battery, a Smoktech 1500 mAh Winder "spinner" style. The 1500 mAh battery should last you between 13 and 15 hours – that would be perfect for the drive to work and back home, plus the entire working day. The 1500 mAh battery is actually a bit shorter than the 1100 mAh that is part of the starter kit options – but they are a slightly larger diameter. The "spinner" style means that it is variable voltage. You can choose voltage from 3.2 volts to 4.8 volts and everything in between. Regardless of the charge remaining in your Smoktech 1500 mAh battery, you will always get a consistent vape until it needs recharging. Best of all, the Smoktech 1500 mAh Winder can be recharged using the charger that's in the base kit. And, the Smoktech 1500 mAh Winder is available in seven different colors.

I would also add a Kanger Aerotank Mini. This is a new product from Kanger. It's a phenomenal clearomizer with a glass tank that renders eLiquid taste exceptionally well. The Aerotank Mini is available in five different colors, and is the perfect diameter to match the batteries above.

This kit will take care of your needs for about one full year. You will need extra coils. Coils and eLiquid are about the only "consummables" that you have to keep buying on a regular basis. About the only "gotcha" in this kit is that you will fall in love with the Aerotank Mini and might want to get another one (or two). 

Here's the breakdown, with links:

Canvape Starter Kit 2 with three bottles (10 ml) eLiquid 44.95
Smoktech eGo 1500 mAh Winder 28.95
Kanger Aerotank Mini 24.95
Total cost 98.95

That is less than $100 to get started with enough supplies to last you about one month. Getting rid of the tobacco sticks can't get any easier or any better.
