The e cigarette industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and almost every week new products hit the market. For some it can be a minefield deciding which product to go for next. Do you go for power with a sub ohm setup? Or do you go for simplicity with a basic starter kit? Well, to help with that decision we’ve put together a list of the 10 very best vaping kits you can find, so far in 2016.
1. Kanger Topbox Mini Kit
The Kanger Topbox Mini kit has been one of our biggest sellers in 2016 and is a massive step forward for Kanger. This kit is a beast and can provide even the newest vaper with a little taste of what advanced vapers have been enjoying for years. One of the biggest factors in this kit is its sheer power. Firing up to an amazing 75w this setup can compete with almost anything else on the market. Don’t worry if 75w seems a little too powerful though, as it comes with variable wattage so can be turned down as low as 7w. It also contains a spring loaded centre pin so can fire as low as 0.1ohm. If you’re looking for power then this mod has it in spades. The tank itself is the famous Toptank Mini, which is a huge improvement over previous tanks, as it has the ability to fill from the top. It has a 4ml capacity, which as you should know by now is outlawed by the EU. So when stocks are sold out you won’t be seeing any tanks larger than 2ml sold legally anywhere in Europe.
2. Atom Yakuza 70W Box Mod Kit
Staying with power, the Atom Yakuza boasts an impressive 70w of heat delivered direct to its ceramic coil. This results in a cleaner flavour and an awesome cloud production. The Yakuza also has a 3 amp charging port to allow for super-fast charging times, and comes with a convenient Apple lightning port. The Atom Yakuza has been garnering great reviews for its originality and is super easy to use. It’s been ergonomically designed to feel great, as well as look great and it’s robust enough to stand up to the daily vigour’s of vaping life. It also comes with a range of decals so you can really make it your own. The Atom Yakuza is a great buy for both beginners and advanced vapers, and coming in at under £50 it offers great value for money.
3. Aspire K3 Quick Starter Kit
If you want something a little more subtle, then the Aspire K3 offers a great ‘out of the box’ vaping kit. It’s easy to set up, and all you need to do is plug and play. It comes with a 1200mah carbon battery and includes a 2ml tank. The Aspire K3 is perfectly suited to ‘mouth to lung’ vapers and is small enough to keep discreetly tucked away. It comes complete with a Nautilus coil, a replacement atomizer and a USB battery charger. If you’re looking for simplicity, then you don’t get more simple than this. It’s a perfect setup for beginner vapers and at less than £35 it’s a bargain.
4. Kanger Subox Nano Kit
If, on the other hand you’ve tried all the ohm vaping kits and want to go a little deeper. Maybe you’re ready for a sub ohm experience. The Kanger Subox Nano kit offers a sub ohm vape at an entry level price. It’s an advanced kit in a beginner’s price range and includes a 50w mod box and a Subtank Nano. It’s small for a sub ohm kit that can fire the atomiser as low as 0.3 ohm, and packs quite a hefty punch. If you want to dip your toe into the world of sub ohm vaping then the Kanger Subox is a great place to start. We currently have it reduced from £49.99 down to £34.99, but you’d better hurry as when it’s gone, it’s gone. See it now.
5. Joyetech EGo AIO Kit
Joyetech are a great manufacturer and they build strong, effective products. With their byline of simplicity they’ve brought us the brilliant Joyetech Ego AIO kit. This little starter kit is a seamless all-in-one device complete with a 2ml tank and a 1500mah battery. It has an adjustable airflow which many vapers enjoy fiddling with to get their intake just perfect, and it has a leak resistant design to stop those annoying e liquid fingers. The BF SS316 atomizer heads that come with the kit are renowned for both the vapour and great flavour they produce. As starter kits go it would be tough to find one better than this, especially under £25.
6. Kanger Subvod Kit
Yep, it’s Kanger again. Kangertech keep getting things right lately and it looks like 2016 could be their year. The Kanger Subvod kit is an entry level sub ohm vaping kit for those that prefer pen like e cigarettes over mod boxes. It’s lightweight with a 1300mah battery and comes with a Subtank Nano-s tank and the new SSOCC coil. For a small device the tank can hold an impressive 3.2ml of e liquid, but as stated earlier these size tanks are now outlawed. So when stocks are sold you won’t be seeing these type of tanks again. If you’re looking for a more discreet e cigarette with a large tank and a sub ohm vape then the Kanger Subvod makes for the perfect fit.
7. Kanger EVOD Starter Kit
It’s an oldie but goodie, the Kanger EVOD Starter kit has to be one of the biggest all time selling starter kits in the world. The reason why it’s so popular is because it has everything you need, right there in the box. It’s small, lightweight and durable. And most of all it comes in at a great price. The whole package comes in a neatly wrapped box, so makes the perfect gift choice. It contains two batteries and two atomisers, so you should never find yourself without a vape. It’s easy to fill, easy to maintain and easy to use, so the Kanger EVOD is the quintessential starter kit for new vapers.
8. Kanger Single Evod Kit
If you’re tight on money, and let’s face it if all the scaremongering about Brexit is correct, then we’ll all need to tighten our belts, then you won’t find a better deal anywhere than the Kanger Single Evod Kit. It’s basically the same as the EVOD starter kit but comes with a single battery and atomiser. If you’re brand new to vaping and just want to dip in your toe, then for £13.99 this single EVOD kit will give you everything you need. It has a 510 eGo charger with a 650mah battery and offers one of the most popular tanks on the market. If you’re not sure what to get and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then you can’t go wrong with the single EVOD by Kanger.
9. Aspire K4 Quick Starter Kit
If you like the idea of a single e cigarette kit, but want to be a bit more daring than the entry level, then the Aspire K4 makes for an excellent choice. It has a massive 2000mah battery, which means it has a longer charge, which means you get more vaping time between charges. If you work outside or don’t find it easy to charge your e cig during the day, then a 2000mah battery should be more than enough to keep you going. It also comes with the popular Cleito tank, which is a convenient top filling device that’s capable of firing in the low ohm range. It’s not quite sub ohm but is powerful enough to keep all but the hardest vapers satisfied.
10. Kanger Subvod Mega TC
Finally, a shout has to go out to the Kanger Subvod Mega TC. If you like the look of the Aspire K4, then before you jump in and make the purchase you should take a good look at the Kanger Subvod Mega TC. The Subvod Mega is pocket-sized and tiny compared to the sheer power it kicks out. It currently has a 4ml tank capacity, which again belies its small size, and a huge 2300mah battery capacity. It has all the modern conveniences of top filling, improved airflow, temperature control, and fires at an incredible 0.15 ohm. This is sub ohm vaping with little man syndrome as it seems to have all the power of the bigger box mods. The only real difference between the Subvod Mega and bigger mods such as the Topbox Mini is the amount of wattage it can produce. The Subvod battery has a range of 35w-40w which is far short of the 70w-75w of its bigger contemporaries, but more than enough to keep most vapers satisfied. If you’re looking for small, but still like some oomph in your vape, then the Mega TC makes an excellent choice.
All the e cigarette kits in this list offer excellent value for money, and it would be almost impossible to put them in order of best to worst. You really need to decide what you want out of your e cigarette and get the one that suits you best. If you like sub ohm vaping then there are plenty of kits to choose from. If you prefer high wattage then there are options too. Brand new to vaping? Then maybe start small and work up. The fun about vaping is the wide range of choice available and we’ve all felt the buzz of finding the perfect kit.
