What Are The Best Vape Pen E Cig Kits To Buy? We Take A Look At our Top Picks For 2018 – So Far…
(Updated March 2018)
Vape pens are a superb starting point for new vapers and offer a great ongoing vaping experience for those of us that have a touch more vaping experience.
You may have seen this type of kit referred to as EGO starter kits, Tank Refill Systems, vapor cigarettes and in certain circumstances vaporizers, although the latter are generally capable of using more than just e-liquid.
Whatever you choose to call them they all work on the same principle.
The good news is we have carried out numerous vape pen reviews so can hopefully help to point you in the right direction first time around!
So back to the question in hand, what are the best vape pens for vapers!
Here is our list of our best vape pens for 2018 for mouth to lung vapers. In no particular order.
Top Choice Vape Pens
Apollo OHM Go Starter Kit
As vaping pens go, the Apollo Ohm Go starter kit is one of the most popular for new vapers. The vape pen kit combines ease of use and performance to make it a perfect for first time vapers. Not to mention it looks fantastic too!
The OHM Go vape pen gives you a 1900 mAh battery and a tank that is supplied with 0.5Ohm and 1.0Ohm coils.
If you are new to vaping the two supplied coils allow you to experience both sub ohm vaping (direct to lung) and mouth to lung vaping. The latter of which is similar to how most smoke a cigarette.
It’s super easy to use. There are no fiddly settings to use, the battery recognises the coil resistance and automatically changes the power output for the optimum vape. The tank is top fill cutting down on any mess made.
This is pretty much a plug and play device. Just add e liquid.
- Perfect beginner vape pen kit
- No confusing controls
- 1900 mAh battery that offers extended vaping time between charges
- 1 X Apollo Portal Refill Tank (Top Fill)
- 2 X Coils (Mouth to lung and sub ohm supplied)
- USB & Wall charger included
If you are looking for something that little bit different in terms of aesthetics then the XEO Void kit could be the one.
A very well built device, designed in Germany, that offers both mouth to lung and direct to lung vaping although this really excels in the MTL vape department.
This is more of an All In One (AIO) vape pen. By this we mean there is no separate tank as you will see with other vape pen kits. The tank section is actually built into the top of the e cig.
Don’t worry if that sounds confusing! This kit is new vaper friendly. Simply pop your coil in, fill with juice and vape.
No matter which resistance coil you use the battery will automatically detect and adjust accordingly, the only thing you have to worry about is what flavour e-juice you are going to pick!
- Good price point
- Excellent quality
- Everything you need to get started
- Very good 1500 mAh battery
- Caters to both MTL and DTL vapers
- Easy to use
Aspire K2 / K3 Vape Pen Starter Kit
Following on from the hugely popular K1 kits, Aspire have recently released the K2 and K3 vape pen starter kits.
The Aspire ‘K’ starter kits are an impressive option and one of the best vape pen kits for new vapers you can get. Aspire have thought carefully about this set up and included only the best vaping options.
There are two options to choose from, the 800 mAh and 1100 mah capacity batteries. The higher the number, the larger the battery life. Keep in mind the size does also increase. Having said that, the K2 is still a nice, small vape pen.
The K1/K2 batteries look fantastic and in terms of design, I would say stands head and shoulders above the rest in our top rated list. The carbon fiber wrap coating looks great. It’s not just a looker though, it also performs a treat with the supplied organic cotton coil BVC coils.
The vape tank that comes with the kit is one of the best in terms of flavour. The plus point here is that it is a pyrex glass tank so will have no problem working with any e-liquid. The Aspire coil heads are well known in the vaping community for top notch performance and the K2/3 kits includes two.
Again these are super simple to swap out.
- Choice of 800 mah battery for a compact look or the slightly bigger 1100 mAh battery for extended vaping time
- 1 K2/3 Glassomizer refill tank (1.8ml/2.0ml)
- 2 X 1.6ohm Aspire coil heads
- Micro USB cable
- New and current vapers alike will get on well with this vape pen kit.
Jacvapour Series S-17
The Jacvapour Series S vape pen is high up there in our favourite list at ecigclick.
It manages to keep a compact form while still offering plenty of battery life with it’s 900mAh battery.
The Series S17 is a plug and play type device. No variable wattage setting to be getting your knickers in a twist with. The battery recognises different resistances from your coil and sets the best output wattage accordingly.
The kit comes complete with a tank that offers very good flavour. All you need to do is add e juice.
Tip: We would recommend buying a second battery with the kit to act as a back up and use in rotation so you are never ‘vape-less’ due to charging or the battery running out suddenly.
- 1 x 900 mah battery
- 1 X tank
- 2 x Atomizer Coils (Mouth-To-Lung and Sub Ohm coil)
- 1 X USB Charger
- Great for all levels of vaper and very easy to use
Innokin Endura T20S Starter Kit
The Endura T20-S vape pen from Innokin is the newest e cigarette on this list and a follow up to the best selling (and still excellent) T18.
Innokin have done a great job with the T20S making it not only one of the best performers but also one of the easiest e cigarettes for new vapers to pick up and use. The Endura T20S has both 0.8Ohm and 1.5Ohm coils to experiment with and also features vape while charging technology and a top filling tank.
This really is an e cigarette that just needs e-liquid to use right out of the box.
It’s also a great looking bit of kit available in a number of colours! One of the best selling vape pens recently released. The sales will continue to roll into 2018.
- 1 X 1500 mAh battery
- 1 X Endura T20-S Prism refill tank
- 2 X 0.8 ohm Coil Heads
- USB Charger
- Good choice for new vapers or a good choice for current vapers making a step up to a longer lasting vape pen.
Innokin Jem/Goby Starter Kit
The Innokin Jem (UK name) Goby (USA name) is not exactly a vape pen but at the same time not big enough to be a vape mod. So we’re going with ‘almost’ a vape pen!
The Jen is still a super compact vape device that is perfect for smokers making the switch.
It comes with 4 wattage settings from 10W-13.5W so you can tweak your vape to suit you. A 1000mAh capacity battery powers the 2ml Jem tank that houses a 1.6Ohm coil. Perfect for Mouth To Lung (MTL) vapers and although the battery may not seem the biggest in terms of life in our testing we were getting a good 6-8 hours which is impressive.
What we like about this kit is the mixture of performance and ease of use. If you are brand new to vaping all you need to do is add liquid and you are good to go.
The kit is available in a number of colour options and comes with 2 x 1.6Ohm coils.
- 1 X 1000 mAh Battery
- 1 X 2ml Endura refill tank
- 2 X 1.6ohm coil heads
- USB included
- Excellent kit for new vapers.
Vapour2 Pro Series 3X; Series 7 Vaporizer Kit
Last but by no means last on our best e cigarette list is the Vapour2 Pros Series 3X and Series 7 kits from V2 Cigs.
This is the only vape pen on the list that offers 3 in 1 vaping. By 3 in 1 they mean you can vape with e-liquid, dry herb/loose leaf and wax. So this is an excellent vaporizer option for those that use more than one medium.
So you can actually use tobacco in this device heat not burn style as well as any other dry herb you may have. If you vape purely e-liquid then this may not be the best option due to the price.
The Vapour2 kits also incorporate magnetic cables for charging and easy fill cartridges that slot simply into the vape device.
They are super simple to use and while not the cheapest the V2 Series line up offers a lot more in terms of both advanced technology and increased vape options.
- Also has the capability to use dry herb/loose leaf and wax as a vaping medium
- Advanced technologies used within this device
- 3 Different coil resistances available to suit different PG/VG e-liquid ratios
- One of the easiest vape pens to use for new vapers

We think, for our readers from the States, these are definitely worth pointing out and should be taken into consideration.
Vaporfi Pro 3 Starter Kit
One for vapers in the USA. Vaporfi are one of the biggest e cig brands in the States and there’s good reason for this. Their product range pretty much caters to all levels of vaper.
The Vaporfi pro 3 Starter kit has everything you need to start your vaping journey. The Pro 3 offers an impressive 1000mAh battery and when matched with the 2.0Ohm coils should easily see you through a full day of vaping.
The 2.5ml tank mouth to lung tank offers a tighter draw, similar to that of smoking a cigarette, only with far better flavour.
This is as easy as it gets when it comes to vapiing. No confusing menus to scroll through, no wattage/voltage settings to adjust. Simply charge, fill, vape, repeat.
This really is a great starting point for those making the switch over to vaping.
- 1000 mAh Batter

What Is A Vape Pen?
A vape pen e cig is basically made up of two main parts – the battery and the tank or clearomizer. They can also be refilled with any e-liquid you choose opening up a world of fantastic e-juice flavours!
You may have also seen cig-a-like e cigarettes that, as the name suggest, look more like cigarettes. Many smokers opt for these as their first vaping device as they provide a familiar form.
While some of these types of e cigs can indeed be a good spring board into vaping they can lack the battery power and flavour choice of vaping pens and this plays a big part in your success rates of staying off the fags.
Quick note on safety: Please only use the charging cable supplied with the kit. Do not use phone chargers or any other type of charger that was not intended for e cig charging.
