i was a long time smoker and quit for about 2 years. like a dumb ass i started smoking one here and there and went full blown addicted again. about 2 weeks ago i switched to a vaporizer. i dabbled with it about a year ago but it was with those generic disposable cig looking deals.
now im using the kind with the battery, tank, wic....

the brand i am using is a low end brand but it it is serving its purpose. it is a vapermate.
using a 2.4 ml tank with the wics.

ive been looking around online for a better(but not top of the line) setup but there are so many to choose from so i figured i would get some input here.
im not too worried about being able to switch volts and such. i dont really take huge rips anyway.
using 12 milligram juice.

so what kind so you use? what kind do you want? any links to sites would be awesome

this is what i am using
www.vapermate.com...

i like this one

i wanted to put together a nice rig but i want to make sure i get good stuff and everything fits together nicely.

while i said i dont need top of the line, these provari rigs are sweet man

check this out. the wife would kill me for spending this much but i might be able to talk her into it

I tried many times to quit. Never succeeded for more than a day.

7 days ago, my wife and I both quit on our 10th anniversary. Her with no vape and me using:

This is what I use. I bought it because it won't break in the pocket, gives lots of smoke and that's all I know actually.


We are now 1 week smoke free.

I'm curious about these myself.
I never smoked cuz I thought it taste like crap. Never could figure how anybody got past the first puff.
Anyways, my father in law is in a nursing home and they are going smoke free on November first.
Any recommendations on a vapor type will be appreciated.

I use a Snowwolf with a Silverplay tank. Best flavor I've ever had is on the Silverplay.

jude. that eleaf is nice. im going to scope their site out now.

bluntone, let me say that 100% of people that pick up smoking are full blown idiots and that includes myself.
i picked it up as a young teen. thought it was cool of course. the nicotine got its hooks in me and had me for years. i tried to quit multiple times.
youre right about the first puff thing.

i could understand getting hooked if that first puff was awesome. its not.
i remember how it was like. i got a headache. i was light headed. tasted nasty. wanted to hurl. all that lasted about a week but of course i kept on.
once all that passed i just needed it.

the vaporizer is awesome. so many flavors and strengths.
i would think any brand/type would work as long as it is the kind you can fill. those disposable ones you can get at wal mart that looks like a cig are total junk.

a couple pet peeves about using the vaporizer.
i hate that people are trying to ban/block/whatever the juices cause the flavors are attractive to kids.
im an adult and i like flavors too. kids are not my problem.
lots of things are attractive to kids. so what?

i hate, hate, hate when people say they 'vape' or ask do you 'vape'
i want to smash their face.
i know that it is easier than saying 'i use a vaporizer' or 'i use an electronic cigarette'.....but i hate it

vape this and vape that.....sound super lame

"like totally man.....do you vape"

makes me want to smash them........and then vape

i bought some stuff from a local vape shop to try it out. I think i am going to start.

the eleaf that jude has...i like that. I need a pocket carry device. The one i bought was about $75 and is too big to use portable like id need for day to day.

But i think i am going to order 2 of something like the eleaf. That provape looks pretty nice, but it still looks a little big.

Go with the Eleaf. The one you like (in the last link) won't satisfy you like a cig would.

I smoked for 40 years and tried all different kinds of pencil type vapes and still could not quit.

Once I got the Eleaf 30 Watt model and a Kangar tank(sub tank mini) I haven't smoked a cigarette since.

Here's why, As a smoker we need that draw of smoke we all love so much to make our lungs and brain get that feeling of euphoria that it brings. Pencil style vapes just don't cut it, but a nice box mod with a tank to hold a bit of juice is perfect.

You still get nice big draws and your brain is happy


I have been smoke free for 3 months now and I was a 2 pack a day smoker,

so if I can do it, anyone can

If you look closely, there is a small hinge where the pipe meets the battery. The stem bends down and lays flat against the battery for your pocket. No chance of breaking and it is slightly bigger than a match box when folded. I keep it in that little watch pocket we all have in our right jeans pocket.


Love it.

I use Black Cherry juice BTW.

Fits in the palm of your hand when folded up.

This is it unfolded:



I have a different tank but you get the picture.

I have been using the Kanger Sub-box with a rebuildable atomizer. I have to say that it's one of the best vapes I have used. I haven't had to buy anything but juice with it and have had it about 4 months. My coils last about a week and cost about 25 cents to make and 5 dollars in cotton lasts forever.

It is a very durable unit, even though the tank is glass I have yet to break it. The paint is the only think that concerns me, it has chipped all over the box and inside the tank paint chips are falling off and getting in my ejuice, not a huge problem because the chips don't make it to the coil but it still bugs me because it seems a little gross.

I like the fact of not having a integrated battery too, I have had a lot of ones with the battery built in and they just don't last and I end up throwing them away.

I highly recommend the Kanger Sub-box it is a very well constructed unit and even the box it comes in when you buy it looks really cool.

I am also very selective about my E-juice and usually only buy Volcano brand, they really have their flavors perfected and you know its not made in a bath tub or someones house.
My favorite Volcano flavors are:

Cherry Lava
RY-4
Cotton Candy
Apple pie
Sweet tart
Tobacco pure
Choconilla haze
Milk chocolate
Vanilla bean

Definitely not grape escape, reminded me of cough syrup.

If you buy more than 50 bucks of juice from them you get discounts and they send you free gifts like mouth pieces and other things. If you buy 10 15 ml bottles they end up costing about 9 bucks per bottle and there is free shipping and also more discount points a accrued for buying anything from the store.

I can vouch for ProVape. Their stuff is the best. Check out the "specials" tab at their site.

Otherwise, you can pick up an Innokin iTazte VV4 for about 40 or 50 dollars. Top it off with a slightly outdated Kanger Pro-Tank 2 (probably 15 bucks) using 1.8-2.0 coils which run 7 or 8 bucks the pack-o-5, and you are set.

Yeah, as mentioned it fits in my Jeans watch pocket when folded, doesn't leak, delivers a great draw and you can control the strength of the draw as well by adjusting the battery.

Plus when you draw you can see the read out and know when to release to get the same draw every time. Like a strength meter.

One more thing I like is that it stands up on the table without having to buy another piece.

a reply to: bananashooter

this is why i am on the fence about spending more cash.
i dont understand all this

whats the deal with having to rebuild coils? cotton? where does it go?

cotton serve the same purpose as the wick?

the tanks for the one i have are 5 bucks with the wicks. i planned on just using the one i have now till the wick is roached then buy another tank...

so if i spend 70-100 on a kangor, provari, eleaf etc i will have an ongoing cost of coils and cotton?
that bites

I smoked cigs for 20 years and quit about 5 years ago with the early style blu cigs and then switched to the pen style aspire batteries.

I had some friends who were building their own devices in the hammond boxes. They were always after me to make them custom wood enclosures. I ended up making a bunch of them and eventually learned how to build and wire the devices for myself. Here are a few boxes ive done.

You will always have to buy coils and cotton. This is def not cheaper than smoking. Lol. The devices you are using are pretty simple. When the coil or the wick wears out, you just replace that whole unit.

The RDA style is also a lot of work and you need a working knowledge of ohms law to build your coils properly, which scares most people off.
