Hi everyone.

Just wowed by this vaping lark. Thought it was abit if a fad at first, but took the plunge and bought a starter kit 5 weeks ago and without me even thinking about after 20 years I've stopped smoking. I've even got 60 fags in cupboard and not one bit of me wants them! Wo-hooo!

So bought a 'Totally Wicked' Titan starter kit, battery was naf. Lasts about an hour Confused so in tesco other week and saw the cirro one, bought that but again battery is naf, not lasting me the day (and I don't vape a lot).

So wanting a serious machine, I don't mind spending money, what is dual coil? What's the best battery? Atomiser...

Thanks in advance everyone Smile

Go & find a local independent vape shop & have a chat with them.

Honestly, they will sort you out.

At an entry (ie early on in vaping) level you'd not go wrong with getting an ego battery:

And WELL DONE on giving up the 'stinkys'

Battery capacities are given in mAh, the bigger the number the longer the battery will last (all other things being equal). So a 1300 mAh battery will last up to twice as long as a 650 mAh battery.

The Titan starter kit seems to be 150 mAh Shock which is TINY, smaller than most cig-a-likes. The Cirro all seem to be 650mAh.

So when you do decide what type you want, make sure it's at least 900mAh preferably higher if you want it to last all day Smile

I went straight for a 1100mAh battery and very quickly got myself a kanger dual coil tank.

I have 2 decent batteries (and 4 650 ones!) and have not had that horrid waiting to charge issue that I remember with cigalikes!

I'm joining in here. Bought my ecig 10 days ago and not smoked a real one since. I've just ordered a spare battery from the link on here so I don't need to wait for the recharge.

Hola! I got my first 1100 from a real life shop. I ordered my second one and some new tanks and coils from vapeclub.co.uk

I got the 650's from various local shops (home bargains, my newsagents etc) just out of curiosity. If I'm going out to the pub or something I'll take a cheapo 650 and bog standard clearothingy just in case I drunkenly lose them!
