I tried vaping ages ago and didn't get on with it. Effectively I wanted a cig after blush
I smoke fairly heavily and I think I need a decent vape. Also I want simple and not massively expensive
The one I had previously was just a simple battery and like a plastic screw on tank bit?
Also my throat got really sore, is that normal? And does it go away?
Budget flexible for the right thing but I'm wary of wasting money, probably £40 ish available

My husband found that when he smoked PG so he now uses VG

Me I prefer PG

hollinhurst84 Sun 29-May-16 10:47:48

Would this be any good?

I got distracted and ordered blush
Hopefully it will be ok!

hollinhurst84 Sun 29-May-16 15:17:38

Oh and I got three juices off another site, different flavours to try

I think it comes with 5? From what I can see on the link
The only thing I think I need is a wall charger, what would fit it?

Thanks. It comes with USB but I have only an iPad and a iPhone portable charger which is too high I think (I'm not techy!)

I'm going to root when I'm home as I had a vape in 2013 and I'm wondering if I have the plug still...
I found one on Amazon that's the brand but doesn't say which vape it fits

hollinhurst84 Sun 29-May-16 15:55:14

Ok the website I got the kit off had a wall plug for using with the USB cable so I ordered that (another delivery charge!!!)

That looks like a decent starter kit smile Have a close look at the coils when it comes - the link you posted says it comes with 3 different resistances - 0.8, 1.5 and 1.8 ohms. The lower the number, the hotter the coil will get. I suggest putting the 0.8 aside for the moment until you are comfortable with what you're doing.

If you bought a wall plug from a proper vape site I'm sure it'll be the right specs. It's a good excuse to post my plug picture again though grin

The output should be 5 volts, 500mA (sometimes written as 0.5A), which is lower than most USB charging plugs these days. If you've got a few different rated plugs kicking around it's a good idea to put a sticker on it for quick identification.

hollinhurst84 Sun 29-May-16 21:44:49

Polter - yes PB, banana and cream grin

hollinhurst84 Sun 29-May-16 21:45:54

Thanks plenty. The vape kit I had years ago was the v basic battery with the plastic clearo, so pen type. Hoping this does the job

hollinhurst84 Sun 29-May-16 23:34:16

Oh and I ended up ordering from here as cheaper

hollinhurst84 Wed 01-Jun-16 13:47:05

It arrived!!! Still waiting on juice but turns out the store for planet of the vapes is 5 mins away so if my car gets fixed quickly I'm going to go down and ask so I can get some

Destinysdaughter Wed 01-Jun-16 13:52:14

Hope this one is better for you OP, it's really worth persevering. It took me 3 e cigs and over a year before I managed to give up the fags. A good one makes all the difference!

Thanks. Quick dash to shop and I have ry4 and salted caramel to try
