I know how you feel but I would really consider getting at least a new tank. Remember that you're going to save far more in a month than the cost of
a decent tank if vaping is enjoyable. The initial investment pays for itself quickly and the health benefits alone are worth the $.
I get irritated when shops sell people this kind of set up because it's either going to discourage someone entirely or the person will be back in a
week or two to upgrade. I tried a pen and clearomizer a few years back and hated the experience so much that I swore off vaping for a long time. I
didn't know anything about it so I thought that was the best it got.
If you don't want to spend too much and want a pen style I'd really recommend the eGo One starter kit. I have the eGo One mini for times when one of
my normal mods are too big, and with a .5 ohm coil actually enjoy it quite a bit (get something bigger for battery/juice life). It's about $45, but
for me that was less than a week of smoking a pack a day. The airflow control works really well and you can adjust it for a mouth to lung or just
straight lung hit.
What juice are you using? If you're using stuff that comes in a small plastic bottle it's probably not great and might be the issue. I didn't think
of that until our large Texas ape mentioned that. If it doesn't come in a glass bottle with a dropper it's probably very low quality. Decent juice
at a vape shop should run you at least $15 for 30 ml. You can find it much cheaper online.
What do you want out of a set up? What specific cigarette do you smoke and how many times a day? Do you want something that is really easy to carry
around or do you want the battery to last a long time? Are you the kind of person that's going to want to try different things and tinker, or do you
just want an easy replacement for cigarettes? If it's the latter, eGo One starter kit and try the different coils. If you're like me and enjoy being
able to try everything, I would invest in a Pioneer4you D2 and Subtank Mini, 2 18650 batteries (LG, Samsung or Sony) and a charger.
If you ask just about anyone thats switched, they will say that the cheaper set ups and clearomizers just don't cut it. It's going to cost a bit more
to upgrade initially, but most don't get the right feel from the cheaper stuff. I keep saying it, but it will pay for itself quickly.
Pardon the wall of text, I just remember when I started, and feeling intimidated by the crazy amount of choices out there, and I like being able to
get someone going in the right direction so they can be healthier and save money. $50-$100 is a small price to pay to save a ton of money, feel
better, not have a cough, smell better, lower your blood pressure (mine went down a lot), reduce the need for nicotine (I can go far longer between
vaping than I could with cigs), help you easily ween off nicotine, cut out the teeth and finger stains, inhale something that actually tastes good,
some people have been able to switch from "smoker" on their insurance and save money that way too, you can do it inside without your place smelling
like crap and staining the walls, and not reeking of smoke may boost your confidence quite a bit (I hated that I smelled like a cigarette smoker in
public and don't feel self conscious about my breath when smooching my girlfriend).
