What do I need to start vaping?

We offer a lot of Starter Kits from leading brands that include everything you need for your first time. They have been designed specifically for those with little or no e-cig experience.

Choose from three different types: stick style, box style or pod style. The choice is personal, and there’s no right or wrong: it’s just a matter of preference.

Starting with an easy-to-use device will help you become familiar with the process before moving onto higher wattage products. Remember that the experience is meant to be enjoyable, so it’s a good idea to take it slow and level up when you’re ready.

Our Starter Kits include everything but the flavour: depending on the style you buy, each kit contains an e-cigarette device including battery, empty cartridges, a micro USB cable, mesh coils or replacement glass. You’ll be glad to know that each Starter Kit also comes with a manual for the hands-on learners. Or, if you’re more visual, many of our products contain links to videos to show you how it’s done.

Choosing the flavour

After you have picked your e cig-style, you’ll need to choose an e-liquid. Now, we can’t tell you what your taste buds want but we can tell you there’s over a hundred different flavours to choose from – and they’re all satisfying. Whether you like something sweet like desserts, or prefer fruit, alcohol, or even the imitation taste of a Cuban Cigar, enjoy the experience of trying different e-liquids to find the ones that best resonate with you.
