    Help E-cigs

    i need some help on what the best e-cig to buy, i had got some of the cheap ones afew year ago when i was stopping smoking
    but i must admit both were not that good but did help me stop, i have started smoking the desposable from tesco at around 6 quid a time & last me about 4 days each,
    id rather use e-cigs than but real smokes. mainly so i dont stink of smoke, i do like the menthol ones im getting from tesco
    the early ones i had didnt vaper that well,
    can anyone advise me on the best ones(but notr too expensive.)
    refillable with e-liquid if possable

    I bought the Vapestick from tesco, it doesn't come out with alot of vapour but it does the trick.. was £45 for 2 batteries, 2 atomizers, 10 cartridges and the usb charger.

    Cut down from 12 a day to 1

    Don't think its refillable with e-liquid though but £7.99 for 10 carts aint bad

    Iv been using these for the past 2 years, not to quit but to stop stinking of smoke!

    Iv had many different e-cigs, but the newest one I have is by far the best. I use the Joytech Ego-C at the moment. There is a tank like cartridge and a removable atomiser (the part that creates the vapour) Been using it for 3 months now and I'm only on my 2nd atomiser (Usually go through 1 every 2 weeks so big improvement)
    There are many places sell these, but be careful there are fakes about which are really poor quality.

    I get all my stuff from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and get my e-liquid from here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Im currently vaping Benson Fences flavour, which is a benson & hedges mimic for flavour. I also like some of the fruity and tropical flavours (Had Blue Slush Puppy and it was immense, burned it all in a week)

    It is a bit pricey to get started, I spent £60 on a starter kit which came with 2 batteries, 5 atomisers, 10 empty carts and a charger and then got a 30ml bottle of liquid for £15. That was 3 months ago and I'm still going off that. Getting about half way through my bottle of liquid and onto my 2nd atomiser. So compared to £6-£8 for a 20deck which id rinse in 2 days, I'm saving a LOT of money and never get the craving for a real ciggy (I actually can't stand the taste of most ciggy's now)

    Anymore questions just give me a shout

    Cheers

    I'm on a Janty Ego-c at the minute not had a cig since July using ecigs. Pricey for an initial outlay but once you have it you shell out a lot less as you can start mixing your own liquids when you get in to it. I mix now and then but also buy pre-mixed to put in the tanks, it's just laziness. I have tried a few models in the past few months and this one is the best for me at the minute, but it has the 510 fitting so you can try some cartomisers and other attchments on the batteries as well.
    I am only a customer of liberty flights others do have them but I have found they strike a good balance between price and customer service if you use df as a discount code you will get 15% off, I also purchased from totally-wicked.co.uk but they started getting more about the brand and being a little pricey, they also chopped and changed the liquids too often for my liking. I have had incorrect orders from both and both sorted it next day.

    Ego-c
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Boge cartomisers (you won't need these they are an alternative to the the tanks on the C, I carry them as spares)
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Genuinely compared to the disposables you have been buying they will knock the socks off them.

    If you want a cheap try first get a pack of boge cartomisers, a bottle of liquid and one of these batteries, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the battery will work with the ego-c if you want to upgrade to the full kit.

    If you need any help just shout, currently vaping Mountain Dew flavour on an Ego-c ;-)

    Or one of the standard 510 batteries if you want it more like a cig, I did at first but you soon don't worry about it. I would keep 2 batteries though if you like them [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and don't forget the chargers.

    This might do you for an intro if you unsure of splashing the cash for an ego-c, has everything you need to get started (I would recommend going for the ego-c though, i spent so much upgrading to the next best thing as they all came out and stopped at the ego-c)

    Been using them for a while, slowly decreasing the nic level in my juice from 36mg down to about 16mg now.

    Still working my way thro my supply of Ego Mega Dual Coil Cartos and Ego T As and Bs atm but I'm gonna pickup an Ego T C kit from Digismoke (run by a DataCave member) as I've heard good reports about the type Cs.

    Buying from China can work out cheaper (health cabin, eliquid.cn etc) but you gotta buy a large order to make it worth while and you don't want to get stuck with a big bottle of liquid or a load of equipment you don't like so I tend to try stuff from UK suppliers 1st.

    e-cigarette-forum is a good forum for all things ecig

    if you do not mind waiting 14 days delivery try one on these [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] you will pay much more from a uk trader.

    most of the time uk traders just buy from china and put there cut on.
    might as well got to china yourself i just order a couple of weeks before i need the good saves me loads of money mine cost 17.38 inc delivery

    add a couple of these at £2.35 each and you will be rockin for 2 months or so [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I used to smoke 40 a day, and stopped instantly with these.

    I now havent smoked for over two years. (Although I still vape)

    Another vote for the ego -c.

    They key to these is buying an expensive good one, and throwing your fags away the day it arrives.

    Everyone I know that tried to vape and smoke together, carried on smoking.

    Everyone I Know that threw the fags away on day 1, gave up!

    Using E-Lites from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and liquid from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Two of us vaping, bottle is two thirds gone after a month @ £13-£14 quid for Golden Burginia.
    E-Lites were dear to begin with and the carts are way too dear, so started refilling myself.
    Totally stopped, instantly. I didn't believe the hype until I tried it. I can 'smoke' in the car, in the house, even in work.

    the Ego c seems to be the weapon of choice here

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    but can someone please explain why you would need 2 full devices as described in the link above?

    Also looking at the comparable product at health cabin, its almost half the price (without shipping) does anyone have any experience purchasing from them, is it the genuine thing, or am i better off getting from liberty flights?

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    lastly - how will i know which fluid to take which is compatible with the ego-c, and what strength? i currently smoke between 15 & 20 a day...or is it a case of starting on the highest and working your way down?

    thanks in advance

    I've been on ecigs for just over 2 years. Piss easy to switch to using them if you avoid some of the common mistakes like buying rubbish ones with stupid claims about the number of puffs being equivalent to a certain number of fags, or not choosing a high enough strength eliquid for the first few weeks and so on.

    All fluids are compatible apart from maybe ones that are pure VG (vegetable glycerine) as they can be too thick to wick well enough. Start off on PG liquids and I'd say go for 24mg to begin with and see how your cravings are. It's a bit vague but aim to vape anywhere between 1 and 3ml a day. If you work out the amount of mg's of nicotine that can sound like a lot, but you don't absorb nicotine in the same way with ecigs as you do with fags.

    In short, buy something that works and vape the hell out of it for the first 2-3 weeks to get you through going cold turkey on all the other chemicals in tobacco and don't look back.

    Then start making your own box mods to cut down on battery prices [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Shameless plug :-D

    Buying from china is ok but you have to wait around 3 weeks for delivery or up to 7 or 8 weeks if ordering around chinese new year. Then there's customs delays and vat at 20% plus admin fees if you get pulled.

    The name eGo in china now basically means larger battery as there are so many about. They're probably all made in the same factory as they seem to be the same quality and perform exactly like their counterparts. Janty the makers of ego like to shout about poor quality dangerous knockoffs but then it's their product that been mass duplicated and supplied at half or in some cases a quarter of the price it''s understandable they're in an arse about it.

    Totally wicked has terrible branding and seriously overpriced gear but really get the word out there so fair play to them.

    I would have thought that making boxmods and variable voltage devices is more up df's members street

    I don't know about needing 2 devices (although I have several lol) but you certainly need more than one battery so you have one charged ready to go when yours runs out.

    A good uk ecig forum is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] They're a decent bunch there and you'll find all the answers there

    I do, it's a lot simpler than it first appears there are a few calculators to help with it [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and a couple on android market. Your best making smaller versions first direct it to a tank then you know if it's any good (flavour, strength, consistency etc), then just multiply it up. Your best starting with just PG fluids for now VG can make it too thick and it's just easier for starting out.
    I'd get some High strength PG Nicotine, some PG and a flavour, a syringe and some bottles to hold it in

    wow many thanks for the detailed response and advice losttoy. i think im going to take the plunge and go for the Ego C from health cabin and order some PG liquids at the same time, also got quite a bit of reading/researching on the forum you posted in your other reply

    once again, many thanks
