What Are The Best Vape Pen E Cig Kits To Buy? We Take A Look At our Top Picks For 2017 – So Far…
(Updated January 2017)
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!
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.
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 2016, in no particular order.
Top Choice Vape Pens
Apollo OHM Go Starter Kit
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 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
- 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
V2 Pro Series 3 & Series 7 Vaporizer Kit
Last but by no means last on our best e cigarette list is the V2 Pro Series 3 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 option for vapers that use more than one medium.
The V2 Cigs 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
- Easy for new vapers to use
E Cigarette Direct Halo Starter Kit
The Halo Vapour Co Tank kit is the perfect starting point for new vapers.
There is nothing ground breaking about this vape pen kit but it does what it’s supposed to do and it does it very well.
The 1100 mAh battery will see most vapers through a full day of vaping and the Aspire CE5 cartomizer that they have paired with this tank is one of the best performing clearomizers available.
Add to this a free 10ml bottle of e-liquid and you are ready to go!
- Excellent price point
- Everything you need to get started
- Very good 1100 mAh battery
- Complete with the superb Aspire CE5 clearomizer
- Free E juice – You choose your flavour
Jacvapour Series S
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 S 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.
- From £19.99
- 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 T18 Starter Kit
The Endura T18 vape pen from Innokin is the newest e cigarette on this list and is personally one of my favourites.
Innokin have done a great job with the T18 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 T18 is a fixed wattage device (14W) that works in unison with the 1.5 ohm coils to provide a no fuss vape.
The Endura T18 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 to be released in 2016. The sales will continue to roll into 2017.
- 1 X 1000 mAh battery
- 1 X Endura T18 Prism refill tank
- 2 X 1.5 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.
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, they are still nice, compact e cigs.
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.
Innokin T22 Starter Kit
The Innokin Endura T22 is the bigger brother of the T18 featured above. Not quite your traditional vape pen style e cigarette but not quite a box mod.
The Endura T22 has a larger 4.5ml tank as well as a 2200 mAh capacity battery which should easily get you through a full day of vaping.
Along with the T18 this is one of the best selling vape kits currently available.
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 1.5Ohm coils.
I personally use this kit on a regular basis when I’m out and about!
- 1 X 2200 mAh Battery
- 1 X 4.5ml Endura refill tank
- 2 X 1.5ohm coil heads
- USB included
- Excellent kit for new vapers.
Best Vape Pens Starter Kits Available In The USA
Most of the vape pen kits above are of course available in the USA but there are a few noteworthy starter kits that are ONLY available in the USA.
We think, for our readers from the States, these are definitely worth pointing out and should be taken into consideration.
Vaporfi Pro 2 Starter Kit
One for vapers in the USA. Vaporfi are one of the biggest e cig brands in the States and there is good reason for this. Their product range is for all levels of vaper is superb.
The Vaporfi pro 2 Starter kit has everything you need to start your vaping journey. The Pro 2 gives you the option of choosing a standard 650 mAh battery or a 1000 mAh VV (variable voltage) battery.
The VV battery allows you to change the power that supplies the tank making a warmer or cooler vape. A great option as some e-liquid flavours do taste better with warmer/cooler vapes.
Add to this their Pro-L clearomizer tank and the results are excellent. The kit builder on their site also allows you to choose from 10 different colours for your e cig so no more plain old black.
Another good thing about buying from Vaporfi is the vast array of e liquids they produce. You can actually mix your own flavours, which means there are over 30,000 combinations available! Crazy stuff!
Did I mention all their e liquids are tested for Diacetyl and AP? Yes… They do that as well.
- 650 mAh Battery or 1000mah VV Battery
- 1 X Pro-L refill tank with 1.5Ohm atomizer
- Wall charging adapter
