Stop smoking

Vape kit help

I stopped smoking 6 years ago using an ecig but have stupidly restarted. Want to get an ecig asap so I can stop but no idea where to start. Things have moved on a lot and I don't know anything about the new kits. What is sub ohm and mouth to lung? I would be using fairly low nicotine liquid and wanting to move to nicotine free quite quickly. Not looking to spend a fortune on a kit (prefer less than £50). Can anyone help?

Vaping is more likely to help you stop smoking if you don't rush it with reducing nicotine. Nicotine really isn't very harmful without tobacco, so start with whatever works and don't be too ambitious!

I've recently bought a little Aspire Pockex as a back up vape and it's very good, fairly cheap and works with standard liquids. My main vape kit is an eLeaf iStick 20/30w battery and an Aspire Triton tank, still not very expensive but I've been off the fags over 3 years now so it's working well.

Mouth to lung is like smoking, you draw on the fag/vape into your mouth and then inhale. Sub ohm vaping you draw on like you would of you were using a medical inhaler straight into your lungs, it makes big clouds but also uses a lot of juice, it's often more a hobby than a smoking replacement.

I only smoke 2-3 cigs per day max, wondering if one of the Kanger E smart or e leaf I stick minis would be enough.

Same here op. I'd quit for several years using the cheap pen types but kept losing them or they'd break and I started smoking again.

Just recently decided to quit again and found this website helpful as it goes through the various types and has recommendations with discount codes too

I settled on the v2 pro series from the article above but haven't used it yet. I've also been into a shop before and found them helpful.

For 2-3 fags a day the E Smart would be perfect. Start with 12/18mg liquid and have 2 batteries and spare atomisers and you should be fine. is great for cheap good quality liquid.

I have ordered an E smart but I'm struggling to work out which atomisers I need to buy! It's armchair more complicated than it was when I last used an ecig!

Right, it looks like the E Smart tanks/clearomisers are treated as disposable these days (you used to be able to just buy the all in one base/atomiser and not have to replace the whole thing) but I've found some here for 5 for £10 which is ok. MyEPack have the starter kits E Smarts for £10.

Polter · 02/07/2017 12:42

Further googling suggests the E Smart has been discontinued so I'd probably avoid. I'm going to return to my Aspire Pockex suggestion which is chunkier but easy, lovely and shouldn't be a problem for spares.

What is confusing me is that the site doesn't bought the kit from suggests it's an 808D-1 thread but all the searches I have done suggest it's a 510.

Insert spect I may have bought a useless item! Thankfully it wasn't very expensive.

I suspect even!
