Best Starter Kits 2018
The final of the vaping.com roundup of 2018 vape devices finds us on vape starter kits. Kits come with everything you need except the vape juice (and batteries if they aren't built in) to get started and even contain a few replacement parts to maintain your kit. At vaping.com our experienced experts have put all the kits through their paces throughout the year so that we can tell you the best starter kits in each of the following categories:
- Best Starter Kit Under $20
- Best Starter Kit Under $50
- Best Starter Kit Over $50
- Best Overal Starter Kit
Best Starter Kit Under $20 = Suorin AIR V2
We've listed the Suorin Air V2 as a Juul Alternative, one the 10 Best Pod Systems for 2019 AND one of the 10 Best Small Vapes for 2019. Just a little hint on how much the team at vaping.com rate this little guy. Roughly the size of credit card it replaced it's younger brother to massive acclaim in the vaping industry. Suorin has managed to establish themselves as the leading manufacturer of pod systems and at under $20 it's a no-brainer.
Customer Review: "Love It! I've been a smoker for 10 years, and was having a really hard time quitting. I started off using the juul, and it did work, but the pods were expensive, and they would leak sometimes. I switched to this and love it! The cartridges hold a lot of juice and last a while, and it still kills my nicotine craving! "
Best Starter Kit Under $50 - Vaporesso Swag KIT
If you got some extra swag you should have the Vaporesso Swag Starter Kit. Here at vaping.com we've been massively impressed with the recent additions to the Vaporesso range of starter kits. The build quality of the Swag is awesome for a starter kit under $50 and it's compact so fits in the palm of your hand. The single 18650 battery can be removed using the knurled lid next to the tank (show on the left in the picture above). Not only can you change out the battery quickly you can charge it super fast too. The 2A fast charging port gets you back vaping in the fastest possible time. But where the Swag cements its place in our best starter kits of 2018 list is the flavor production. As mentioned in the customer review below the flavor from the GT Core coils in the Vaporesso Swag Starter kit is just so tasty.
Customer Review: "Excellent. I’ve been using a Smok Priv V8 that fell apart and died. I love how compact this vaporesso is and the tank and coil were an instant improvement on the Smok Baby. It was incredible how much more flavor the vaporesso is. And, the adjustability is amazing. You can fine tune your vape for perfect flavor and draw. I highly recommend the vaporesso swag. An amazing beginner kit."
Best Starter Kit Over $50 = Lost Vapes Orion DNA Go (Project Sub-Ohm Edition)
We had many a discussion about the best starter kit over $50, there were just so many awesome kits to choose from. In the end, the vaping.com experts just couldn't look past or put down the Lost Vapes Orion DNA Go Project Sub-Ohm edition. The DNA chipset in the Orion is probably the best brain (chipset) in any vape kit, the replay function is probably it's the finest feature. All you have to do is press a button to save the setting and you can be safe in the knowledge every vape from then will be exactly the same. We've chosen the Sub-Ohm Edition of the Lost Vapes Orion DNA Go starter kit because we think it's a little bit sexier and more exclusive.
Best Overal Starter Kit = SMOK V8 Stick
We have 269 reviews for the SMOK V8 Stick, 201 or these are five stars and 58 four stars. That tells you everything you need to know how people feel about the SMOK V8. Follow the link or click on the picture to just to the product page and read all the reviews. What do the vaping veterans here at vaping.com think? They love it too! It's probably the best all-round starter kit available in 2018. Starting with the price it's awesome (it featured in the vaping.com best cheap vapes list). It couldn't be easier to use just fill with vape juice, just press the firing button to vape the day away. The 5ml tank capacity is generous and the integrated 3000 mAh battery means you really can vape all day.
Customer Review: "So far so good. Really impressed. Little heavy but it’s worth it. Very powerful vapor producer. Would recommend."
