The vape tricks performed in these videos are done by expert vapers. Don’t fret if it looks daunting, it takes a lot of practice to get these tricks right.

Vaping is the process of inhaling and exhaling water vapor produced by an e-cigarette. It’s a tobacco-free and sometimes even nicotine-free activity that’s absolutely safe to practice. When referring to this activity, the word ‘smoking’ is not used since there’s no smoke produced at all.

Ever since it was introduced, vaping has gained immense popularity among users. It is also regarded as one of the best alternatives to cigarettes. Besides having less side-effects compared to other traditional forms of smoking, vape is also used for entertainment purposes.


Impressive Vape Tricks

There are various interesting vape tricks that you can do. There is the bull ring, waterfall, ghost inhale, tornado among many others. Nevertheless, before conducting these hacks it’s important to have a decent vape mod and sub-ohm vape tank as well. Below are some of the popular tricks that you can try:


I. Vapor Bubble

This procedure involves making a huge bubble by trapping exhaled vapor within a bubble. It’s quite simple to do and looks very attractive as well. To perform it, you first need to make a small cut on the base of a plastic bottle. Then use a hand-soap and water solution to create the bubbles. Ensure that the bottle you are using is considerably small.

Next, lower the bottom end of your bottle into the solution then lightly exhale the vapor.


II. Ghost Inhale

Ghost inhale is also sometimes referred to as mushroom cloud or the snap inhale. It’s a beginner level hack that involves the release of balls of vapor, then quickly ‘snapping’ it back in. You can do this fun cloud vape process by inhaling a long drag. Then allow it to linger inside the oral cavity for some seconds before rapidly exhaling the vapor in a nice ball shape.


III. Tornado

As the name suggests, Tornado is an interesting and enthralling maneuver that will capture the imagination of anybody who sees it. The ploy entails making a smooth pool of vapor that eventually turns into a tornado shape. All you need to do is cautiously exhale your vapor on a flat surface, while keeping in mind that it needs to be thick.

Thereafter, use your hands to chop at the top surface. Then move your wrist quickly upwards and raise your arm. Ensure that the entire process is done at once.


IV. Blowing Os

As the name suggests, this hack involves making a letter O out of the vapor. (In the olden days these O’s were called smoke rings.) All you need to do is taking a long drag and lingering it in your throat. When doing this maneuver, your tongue should always be at the bottom part of your mouth and pulled towards the rear end of your throat.

Next, form an ‘O’ shape using your lips. Then make rapid, pulsating motions with your throat while allowing the vape to be released in a letter O shape.


V. French Inhale

French inhale is yet another impressive maneuver whereby vapor flows upwards from the mouth. This means that you eventually inhale it via the nostrils. The French inhale can easily be done with an rda vape. To perform it simply allow the vapor to settle inside your mouth after a long drag.

Thereafter, slowly open your mouth and push the lower jaw outwards while allowing the vapor to come out naturally. A small twist to this hack is that you need to continually inhale the steam via your nostrils.


VI. The Waterfall

Waterfall is another interesting trick that basically involves turning vape into a thick and versatile water-like substance. This maneuver is not hard to master and will only take you a few minutes to perform. It can be achieved by simply adding a bottle that has frozen water at the bottom.

When taking a drag, blow it inside the bottle then gently pour it out.


VII. Bull Ring

The bull ring trick also resembles letter O, but instead of using the oral cavity to make it here you must exhale via the nose. Hence, you eventually end up releasing Os through your nose. The entire process is not painful for those who may be concerned about feeling discomfort.

Simply blow a dense medium O, then using your nostrils inhale the vape ring’s top section. This may require some practice to master.


VIII. The Dragon

Though a little bit extravagant compared to the others, it’s very exciting to see and will greatly impress your peers. To perform this move, simply take a drag but don’t inhale it. Instead forcefully exhale it via your nose and also through both sides of the mouth.


Expert Vape Tricks

And now for the experts to show you how it’s done. This video is a collection of vape tricks done perfectly by professional cloud chasing masters.

Cloud Chasers Summary

Vaping tricks are often used by cloud chasers to pass time in an interesting way. They can be performed using both vape pens and e-cigs. Whether you want to do the maneuvers alone or with friends, it can be a thrilling activity and hobby for everyone.

While some of the hacks may require time to master before doing them expertly, others are quite easy to do.

There are various instructions videos online that can help you learn more about the vape maneuvers. Additionally, you can regularly practice in-front of a mirror to perfect your skills.

Furthermore, never be discouraged even if you don’t succeed in doing a certain trick the correct way. Always remember that most of them require some time in order to get things right. Similarly, after mastering the tricks remember to teach your friends and peers who may also be interested in performing them.

Vape hacks can be performed in birthday events and other fun social activities such as family get-togethers, office parties and so on.

Vaping is a better alternative to smoking. There are no adverse side effects related to it such as bad breath and lung infection. It makes use of E-liquids that consist of either vegetable glycerin (VG) or propylene glycol (PG). They can also be combined with a variety of natural or artificial flavors to create exotic and distinctive aromas.

During vaping, an e-cigarette’s battery activates the atomizer which then heats the E-liquid to create vapor. The user then inhales this steam to create vape tricks. Vaping is legal in most countries around the world. Because it has very few side effects, but still be mindful of others around you.

What are E-Cigarettes?

A lot of people are asking the questions… What are e-cigarettes, what is vapor smoking and how do electronic cigarettes work? Keep reading and you’ll find out all the latest information on electronic cigarettes. These new vapor devices, better known as e-cigarettes have taken the world by storm. E-cigs are fast replacing regular tobacco cigarettes in almost all countries. In fact, these fake cigarettes and vaporizers are being hailed as the best alternative to regular smoking in the world markets today.

E-cigarettes are designed to look and feel like the real thing. Therefore, they also meet the psychological or habitual needs of smokers. The only difference is that these devices run on batteries. This means there is no real smoke and no burning tobacco.

The popularity of e-cigarettes among heavy smokers is understandable. They often call the product, the only realistic alternative to tobacco products. One of the best e-cigarette benefits is they’re cheap. This means you don’t have to curb your desire for a smoke because of increases in prices and taxes. Now that e-cigarettes have finally arrived in New Zealand, you can enjoy your vaping experience without any hassles.


How Do Electronic Cigarettes Work?

These smokeless cigarette devices have a battery powered heating element. This joins on to a tank that contains a liquid solution. The solution is made by combining nicotine, vegetable glycol or propylene glycol and flavorings. This vapor liquid is generally known as e-juice or e-liquid. You may buy the gadget in a variety of shapes and sizes. Often they will resemble a pen or a regular cigarette. And, it works like a vaporizer.


What are E-cigarettes Used For?

Most people who have to ask what are e-cigarettes used for are not smokers. You see it is pretty obvious what e-cigarettes are used for if you smoke. The answer is to quit smoking of course!


What is Vapor Smoking?

So, what is vapor smoking and how do you vape? Vapor smoking is a term which is actually wrong as it implies vaping with an an e-cigarette. There is NO smoke so I am not sure why the term is used. Anyway, in some devices the user just needs to inhale and the e-cigarette will fire, however in others, the user needs to press the ignite button to get the device to fire. The user inhales the vapor, which feels a lot like the actual act of smoking. However, there is no odor involved, and none of the side effects of second hand smoke. This means that people can use them just about everywhere without worrying about the public smoking bans.

Also, because plant matter is not burned, what you essentially inhale is just water vapor. This means you don’t have to worry about filling your lungs with tar and the other ugly pollutants. Did you know there are over 1400 chemicals and 40 known carcinogens that are found in the smoke created by a regular cigarette. With e-cigarettes you get none of that!


What are the Mechanism of Vapor Cigarettes?

Most vapor devices currently available in the market are made of three major components:

  • A cartridge or tank which holds the e-juice or vaping liquid.
  • An atomizer, which is the heating element; sometimes you may have a combined atomizer, cartridge unit. That is known as a clearomizer, cartomizer or tankomizer.
  • A battery which powers the device.

The mechanical parts of the device get you the vaping effect. And, the liquid in the cartridges or tanks is what determines the flavor and nicotine strength. These tanks are available pre-filled or empty. When buying empty cartridges, you simply fill them up with your favorite e-juice. If you own a tankomizer, or clearomizer you simply purchase the liquid and fill it yourself. These e-cigarettes are called 2nd generation e-cigs. I only sell 2nd, and 3rd generation e-cigs here. This is because they are far more economical and better than 1st generation devices.

You can get larger batteries with power from 1300mah up to 2500mah or more. You can charge these once a day or once in a few days, depending on the frequency of use. On the other hand, you will need to charge the smaller 650mah or less batteries every few hours. Most quality e cigarette kits will come with USB chargers. So, you never run out of vaping power.

In any case, the unit has an indicator which will show low charge. However, this is not the case with the cartridges. If you are using pre-filled tanks, you will simply have to throw away the spent cartridge and insert a fresh one. However, regardless of the type of cartridge used, there is no light indicator to show that you are going low on e-juice. The only differences you notice will be less vapor and a change in taste. Here at Vapor Cigarettes NZ we only sell the tankomizer and clearomizer versions so you will not have the problem of not knowing when the you are running low. You will clearly see the light start flashing.


What Are The Different Types of E-cigarettes?

Electronic cigarettes are available in disposable and reusable versions. The disposable units are usually shaped like regular cigarettes. Although these are great to get a feel for e-vaping, they can be incredibly expensive and just don’t deliver the performance of a quality electronic cigarette kit. On the other hand, refillable e-cigs can last for years. So, undoubtedly this is a more cost effective option. Here at we only sell the re-fillable versions with long battery life and clear tanks so you can see when you’re running low in juice. See my article on what e-cigarette is best for you.


What is e-juice or electronic cigarette liquid?

One of the best things about using e-cigarettes is that you not only get to control the amount of nicotine but also the flavors. And, you will be shocked by the sheer range of flavors available; from alcohol and spices to the traditional favorites like menthol and tobacco and even foods like pizza and bacon. In terms of nicotine strength, you can go for 18-24 which is strong, 12-16 mg which is regular or 6-10 mg which is light. Read more about what’s in e-liquid here.


What Are The Benefits Of Using Electronic Cigarettes?

A number of e-cigarette studies and surveys have shown that there are innumerable benefits of switching from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes. Not the least of these is the ability to vape away to your heart’s desire whenever and wherever you want.

In fact, many pubs, bars and restaurants which prohibit smoking do allow the use of electronic cigarettes. This is because the vapor dispelled from e-cigarettes is harmless, evaporates completely and generally has a pleasant aroma. However, it would be best to check with the manager first.

Some of the other advantages of going the electronic cigarette way are listed below, or read our article on the safety of electronic cigarettes here.

Are Electronic Cigarettes Right for Everybody?

These devices are meant to be used by long term smokers as a healthier alternative to regular smoking. However, typical limitations apply to their use such as:

• Electronic cigarettes should not be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
• They cannot be sold to people under the age of 18
• If you have a medical condition or are on prescription drugs, it would be best to consult with your GP before using e-cigarettes

These ego cigarette instructions can be applied to any of the second generation e-cigarette devices on this site. There may just be some minor differences in the way the actual devices come apart. Also, the end of the e-cig that you fill from can be the at the bottom instead of the top. However, the methods for cleaning, filling and charging your e-cigarette remain the same.

E-Cig Charging Instructions

Follow these e-cig charging instructions step by step.

  1. Unscrew the battery and detach from the atomizer.

2. Screw the battery into the end of the usb cord

3. Plug the other end of the usb cord into the usb hub of the wall adapter or another usb hub such as your computer.

4. Plug the wall adapter into the wall power socket and switch it on.

The first time you charge the battery after purchasing your new electronic cigarette, you should leave it to charge for at least 5 hours. Even though the light will have turned green after only 2-3 hours, leave it to keep charging for another few hours. You only need to do that once when you first get it. From then on, you will only need to charge the battery until the light turns green which should take 2-3 hours.


How to Refill Your E-Cig

Follow the instructions below on how to refill your e-cig tank with e-juice, step by step.

  1. Unscrew the filter (end where you suck from), and detach from the clearomizer.
  2. Get your bottle of e-liquid and remove the cap.
  3. Use the nozzle or needle (usually attached to the bottle) to gently squeeze the juice into the open end of the clearomizer tank. Be very careful not to get any juice in the middle tubing of the e-cig. So squirt the e-liquid to the side of the chamber while holding the clearomizer slightly tilted and let the liquid gently roll down into the tank.
  4. Fill to approximately half way or slightly under half way.

See the tube in the middle of the atomizer? This tubing is meant for air only and needs to be clean and dry. If any liquid gets into this tube, the e-cig will gurgle and not perform optimally.


How to Clean an E-cig

If you do manage to get some liquid in the tubing part or after a while it becomes a bit dirty just from use, it will need to be cleaned. If it starts to gurgle or not perform as it should then you know it’s time for a clean. Follow these simple instructions step by step of how to clean an e-cig tank.

  1. Make sure the chamber is empty.
  2. Unscrew all the parts that can be detached.

3. Soak the clearomizer chamber and filter in some kind of alcohol based cleaning solution. (nothing too strong that will dissolve it.)

4. Run hot water (not too hot) through the clearomizer tubing and chamber.

5. Gently and carefully pat dry the parts with a paper towel. Leave parts to dry in a warm place, but not outside in direct sunlight.

6. Then hold the parts and shake any excess water droplets out with a flicking motion.



Then screw the parts together including battery and ignite the atomizer. (Do not fill the chamber yet) Hold the button down for a few seconds until you hear a sizzling sound (this is the excess water evaporating). Do this until you start to see a little vapor rise. Do not hold the button down for too long while the clearomizer is empty or it will burn out the coil, so be very careful and only do this part if it is absolutely necessary, usually just drying out with the towel will be enough.

Congratulations you now know how to clean an e-cig. For more detailed instruction on cleaning your e-cig atomizer and coils see the e-cigarette troubleshooting guide.


Simple Ego Cigarette Instructions for Your New Kit

(Works with All Makes and Models)

Here is a very well explained set of instructions and tips for using, filling and charging your new e-cigarette.

How to Get an Evod MT3 or Ego CE5 Atomizer Working Properly Again

After a while your evod e-cig clearomizer may not function properly or even at all. This is very likely to be a burned out coil. But, hang on… before you buy a new atomizer or new coil, you can try to fix the old one yourself. It may be a burned out wire connection which is a fiddly procedure with a soldiering iron to fix, but before you throw it away… it could also be just a build up of carbon and gunky wick. This is relatively easy to fix, just poke, tap and wash it all out. (See the e-cig troubleshooting guide for more information on how to do this.)

Follow the instructions in the video below. The video explains the procedure for an evod mt3 atomizer but it is pretty much the same idea for the ego ce5… just pull disconnect all the parts and get the gunk out and replace the wick and reconnect. Watch the video below to see how. For a more detailed explanation of all the various issues one might come across with an e-cigarette please see the E-cigarette Troubleshooting Guide.


I hope these ego cigarette instructions are helpful to you. Now you know about charging an e-cigarette battery, filling an e-cigarette with e-juice, and how to clean an e-cigarette. Make sure you keep your vapour cigarette clean all the time, and your ecig battery fully charged. This will lengthen the longevity of the device and keep you vaping for months to come.

The information provided in these e-cigarette studies come from leading… Read more »

Which E-Cig Studies Are True?

If you are anything like me you might be a little confused about whether electronic cigarettes are safe or not. It seems like every week the media reports on a new claim about it, one week they say the use of electronic cigarettes is completely safe and the government needs to wake up and legalize the sale of nicotine e-liquid in NZ and the next week the same liquid is found to be harmful and will actually harm you, and the next week it’s back to being safe again? Have you noticed these ridiculous constant turnarounds? I certainly have and I think the reason for this can be put down to the following…

The thing is, e-cigarettes and nicotine e-liquid simply hasn’t been around long enough to get conclusive results analyzed from any long term studies or trials that are going on, and they are going on, they just haven’t been finished yet, it will probably take about ten more years before that happens. So, every time a new claim is reported on the news, it has only been based on a short term study, and depending on the type of analyses carried out in the study, a different result is measured, bringing new claims to light every time.

I have tried to keep up with all these studies and have even created a whole page devoted to them. See studies and research on the safety of electronic cigarettes and nicotine e-liquid here. On that page I have listed dozens of studies and included links to all the articles which document them. It was quite a lot of effort, but after a week of solid reading I managed to make sense of most of them. What I found was a hell of a lot of contradicting claims, many claiming absolute safety and other claiming extreme harm and many in between. Over-all, the only conclusive thing that can be said with 100% certainty is that more time is needed before anyone can unreservedly determine the risks associated with electronic cigarette devices and the liquid they deliver, but the general consensus is that they are not completely safe, but are likely to be “a lesser evil” when compared to conventional tobacco smoking.


What Can Your Own Body Tell You?

From all the research I have done and the studies and reports I have read on this matter, it is my personal opinion that vaping with an electronic cigarette is certainly much safer than smoking a tobacco cigarette. And although the evidence points this way, it is not entirely what sways my opinion.

The main factor for me coming to this conclusion is my own body. There is a lot to be said for listening to your body when it comes to matters of health. I have always been an advocate of this practice and learning to recognize what your body is lacking and what it is overloaded with, and then adjusting the situation can really be the best medicine. I am getting a bit off track here but essentially it means being in tune with yourself, eating when you hungry, resting when you’re tired, recognizing when you consume something your body disagrees with and replacing it with something your body does agree with and so on.

Of course this is easier said than done but once you become proficient at this skill you can substantially improve your health in many different ways. This really came into its own after I made the switch from regular tobacco smoking to using an electronic cigarette. My body loved it.


My Personal Story – Why I Made The Switch to E-Cigs

I first started smoking when I was just 14 years old. Of course back then I wasn’t thinking about such things as what was good for my health or not, that was the farthest thing on my mind. I smoked to be cool and because my friends did it, and also back then it wasn’t such a sin as it is nowadays either. Anyway 33 years later I was still at it. Rolling my own Port Royal tobacco, I went through more than one 50 gram packet every week. That’s a lot of smoking and needless to say I was about as addicted to nicotine as anybody could get.

It wasn’t until I was in my forties, around the same time I started learning to listen to my body, that I started recognizing signs that smoking was negatively affecting me. I still enjoyed the flavor but it was starting to effect me differently, I developed an annoying and irritating smokers cough and I woke up each morning with phlegm in my throat feeling like I had a hangover even when I hadn’t been drinking the night before. I began to hate my smoking habit, the dirty yellow and brown nicotine stains on my fingers and teeth, the pungent sickly smell on my skin, breath and clothes, the ugly sight of cigarette butts spilling over ashtrays all around the house, and all that money, oh boy, all that money! How much money had I spent on something that was killing me? I hate to think.

It was time to give up and I knew it and I wanted it, so I did. I quit, just like that. The trouble was, I kept starting again, I just couldn’t keep staying off the damned things. Maybe I am particularly weak willed, I really don’t think that’s the case, but the longest I could ever stay quit was 2 weeks before the cravings got the better of me.

Over the next few years I tried several more times, I tried chewing the nicotine gums, using the nicotine patches, I tried the prescription medicine ‘Champix’ and I even went to a giving up smoking help group, but no matter how hard I tried I always found myself eventually lighting up again.

And then along came electronic cigarettes and everything changed. The very first time I tried giving up smoking by using electronic cigarettes it worked. (see the exact same e-cigarette starter kit I used) That was nearly a whole year ago and I haven’t looked back since. I was finally free of the dirty smoking habit, amazing!


Dealing With The Electronic Cigarette Haters

For me, using electronic cigarettes and giving up smoking has been a major personal triumph but that’s not how some people see it. Some folks do not think this is a triumph at all, in fact they believe I have simply replaced one bad habit with another. To be honest, this can be quite disheartening especially when the criticism comes from friends or family or others who you respect.

The way I deal with the haters is to focus on the benefits of my achievement, and it is an achievement no matter what anybody says. Now you may be thinking I am disillusioned in my confidence about this being an achievement, however the main thing I base this opinion on is what I started to talk about earlier, “listening to my body”. I can tell you my body is thanking me and here’s why…

  1. I no longer have that annoying and irritating cough.
  2. I no longer wake up feeling like I have a hangover.
  3. My breathing has improved tremendously.
  4. Because of the breathing benefits, my fitness has improved.
  5. The disgusting nicotine stains on my fingers have completely gone away and the stains on my teeth have improved.
  6. My breath and skin no longer smell like an ashtray.

The six health benefits I mentioned above are facts, however I also believe, due to listening to my body, that my lungs are repairing themselves, my blood and circulation is improving and my general health is improving, and… it is my opinion that the e-cigarettes are not hindering in this recovery process.

Some of the other benefits from replacing tobacco smoking with electronic cigarettes are…

  1. The over-all cost of using e-cigarettes is about five times cheaper than that of tobacco use so I am saving a ton of money.
  2. I still get to enjoy the flavors of what e-cigarettes offer (there is a huge variety of e-juice flavors) which is something I always liked about smoking.
  3. I can control the amount of nicotine which is used in an e-cigarette and so can slowly cut down if I ever want to try and give up nicotine completely. E-cigarettes can be used with liquids that have no nicotine in them whatsoever, and yet they are still pleasant.


Am I Disillusioned?

If you still think I am disillusioned or in denial about the safety of electronic cigarette use, let me reassure you that I am not. I fully understand that using e-cigarettes has a risk and that it is not completely harmless.

  • I understand the seriousness of addiction and that I am still addicted to nicotine which is one of the most addictive substances known to man.
  • I also know that nicotine has its own toxicity and in itself can be harmful to the human body. Long term use may even damage the arteries.
  • There is also a possibility that certain ingredients in some e-juice concoctions can produce chemical reactions that are also harmful to the human body.

However, as stated earlier in the article, no studies have had enough time to be fully recognized in their conclusiveness to the health effects of electronic cigarette use one way or the other. The evidence at this stage seems to suggest there is indeed a safety factor but it is much less a risk than that posed by tobacco smoking. To form your own educated opinion on this issue I recommend you read some of the articles written by some of the top health professionals studying this exact thing. See e-cigarettes studies and research.


Final Word

After considerable thought, intensive research, and also “listening to my body”, it is my opinion, that making the switch from smoking tobacco to using electronic cigarettes is indeed a personal triumph and also a major health breakthrough for the positive.

What’s the best vape starter kit to get? If you’ve decided to try e-cigarettes as a means to quit smoking, I’m sure this question is foremost on your mind. In this article, I compare the best and most recommended e-cigs for you to choose from.

Which E-Cigarette is The Best?

Vapor Cigarettes NZ is probably the best vape shop NZ has to offer. I know that is a bold statement, but from all of my research, it does seem like the truth. We have all the most popular e-cigarette brands and models and also the best prices.

As already mentioned, I am guessing you are here because you want to quit smoking with e-cigarettes. You really want to give e-cigarettes a go, but you just don’t quite know where to start… if that’s the case keep reading.

The good news is that this website was created especially for you. Whether you are a complete beginner and never even tried an e-cigarette, or a total pro who has been using them for years, this website has something for you. There is a big selection of e-cigarette kits to choose from and it is growing all the time.


What Type of E-Cigarette Should I Buy?

Knowing the basic types of e-cigarettes is the first step in determining what type of e-cigarette to purchase. I have both 2nd generation and 3rd generation e-cigarettes to choose from. If you don’t know the difference, keep reading…

  1. First generation e-cigarettes are the type you throw away, the disposable e-cigs. They are expensive, don’t last very long and are a total waste of money. I don’t sell them on this site… period!
  2. Second generation e-cigarettes are the best kind for those switching from regular smoking to electronic cigarettes. The 2nd generation e-cigarettes have an atomizer/tank which can be filled using your own e-juice. The batteries can be recharged, and all the parts can be replaced, including atomizers, coils and batteries. They often mimic real cigarettes and come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, however they are usually slim and circular. I recommend 2nd generation e-cigarettes for all beginners and intermediates.
  3. Third generation e-cigarettes are the type experienced vapers often prefer. These are the box shaped mods. These mod type batteries are usually high voltage and high wattage and can deliver huge vaping power. The larger box shaped batteries have several settings and can be recharged normally with standard rechargeable batteries in a regular battery charger unit. Mod e-cigarettes are often rebuildable, especially the coils, and kits often come with RBA (rebuildable) components. I offer various 3rd generation models in starter kit format ranging from those wanting to try a basic 3rd generation mod for the first time, right up to ultra pro’s who want top of the line mod experience. These mod kits are only for experienced users, and I recommend anybody fresh into e-cigarettes to start with a 2nd generation e-cigarette kit.


What’s The Best Vape Starter Kit to Get for a Beginner?

So… Which e-cigarette is best for me? For those of you who want to skip all the details of all the different types, …just scroll to the bottom of each of the following e-cigarette reviews where I have a written a general recommendation. So just read that.

Each electronic cigarette starter kit I have is slightly different, and has its own unique features. So you may have a preference over one from the other, and it doesn’t really matter which one you choose because they all work totally fine. But your personal taste will probably sway you to like one over the other, so I have made this page to help you choose the best starter kit for you. One you’ll be happy with for many months to come.

The following guide is for you to compare all the different e-cigarette products available to you on this website.


Second Generation E-Cigarettes

The Ego CE5 E-Cigarette

The CE4 and CE5 is the most basic e-cig vaporizer I have and it comes in 3 different packages.

  1. The Ego CE5 Blister Pack – Simply an e-cig atomizer, battery and USB charging cord in a plastic blister packet. (This is the cheapest, most basic kit I have, except for the ce4 blister kit which I only sell on occasions… the ce4 is exactly the same as the ce5 except its coil can not be replaced.)
  2. The Ego CE5 Double Zipper Kit – Just the same as the single kit but with two e-cig atomizers, (tanks), a charging cord, a NZ wall adaptor plug, and two Ego 1100mah batteries in a compact black ego zipper case. (This is the 2nd most basic and is a very good deal considering it has two of them.)
  3. The Ego Skull E-Cig Kit – This is exactly the same as the double zipper kit except with just one e-cigarette and battery. The atomizer features a metal skull design on the end, and the battery also has a cool swirly design.

Features of the Ego CE5

  • Easy to fill the e-liquid. Just take off the CE5 atomizer inhaler tip, fill the e-liquid (careful not to get any liquid in the air tube), and then screw back the inhaler tip onto the eGo CE5 atomizer.
  • Big capacity, eGo ce5 atomizer tank can hold about 1.6ml of E-liquid.
  • Fits nicely on an eGo battery giving a clean finished look.
  • With scale on the eGo CE5 transparent clearomizer, you can see how much nicotine you inhaled.
  • Longer wicks for more consistent flow of e-liquid to the coil in any position. The coil is easily replaceable and I sell spare coils on the accessories page.
  • No burning, no leaking. Very large vapor.
  • Cheap (the double zipper kit is one of the best deals I offer.)



In general the CE5 e-cig vaporizer is very easy to use by anybody, if you want something to start and mess around until you get used to vaping. The 1100mAh battery will give you a good experience to start with, and will keep you a day easy. And if you want to look cool while you vape get the skull kit. The CE5 is perfect for beginners, and many choose to stay with it even after years.


Vision 1 Variable Voltage Battery and Protank Mini Atomizer E-Cigarette Kit

The Vision 1/Protank Mini kit is the next level up in quality from the CE5.

Features of the Vision 1 and Protank Mini Kit

  • It uses Pyrex glass and hard metals instead of plastic made out of poly-carbonate. This makes the device more durable and more resistant to acidic e-liquids, the Pyrex glass surrounding provides best safety and healthier environment for e-liquid, best taste.
  • The metal tube in the center of this Clearomizer leads from the mouthpiece to the battery end. Avoid getting liquid in this tube when filling the Clearomizer.
  • It is a Bottom Coil Changeable (BCC) “glassomizer” heating from bottom, the heating coils are placed at button which is much better for evaporating e-liquid, there is no need to tilt the clearomizer.
  • It is an interchangeable atomizer too, so you can easily check the atomizer directly, and can replace/wash the coil head inside and keep the protank mini atomizer unit clean so you can renew it like a new one. See the accessories page for spare atomizers and coils for the protank, and also spare Vision 1 batteries.
  • Good capacity, ego protank glass tube can hold about 1.6ml.
  • Simple to fill, easy to clean, smooth airflow.
  • No burning smell, no leakage, very large vapor..
  • Fits nicely on an eGo or Vision 1 battery, giving a clean finished look.
  • Made of sturdy pyrex glass and solid chrome plated metal tank.

Now about the Vision 1 Spinner:

  • Button LED light color: White.
  • Variable voltage: Can be adjusted from 3.3-4.8V volts.
  • 510 & eGo threading connector.
  • it fits perfect with the Protank Mini.



The Vision1/Protank Mini e-cigarette starter kit is for vapers that are tired of the usual Ego batteries or just want something of reputably higher quality. This kit is very similar to the ego and evod kits but slightly more refined. A great kit for beginners or intermediate vapers.


Kamry Mini X9 Starter Kit

The X9 starter kit has a longer lasting battery than the ego and the kit also comes with an extra coil unit.

Features of the X9 Mini E-cigarette

  • Stainless steel.
  • Easy to operate .
  • Exquisite mini style.
  • Larger smoke vapor.
  • 5-clicks locking system.
  • 510 Thread.
  • Shiny Durable Metal material.



The Kamry mini x9 is what you might call a pen style e-cigarette. The battery will take you to almost 2 days of vaping and the atomizer gives you the best taste. This is for you taste chasers. The X9 mini e-cigarette is also a very smooth and elegant design so would suit the more sophisticated tastes. It is also well made of high quality materials and the extra coil will come in handy later on down the track, saving you the cost of buying a new one. The X9 mini e-cigarette starter kit is also perfect for beginners to intermediate vapers, and is a very sleek and beautiful model.


X6 Variable Voltage E-Cig Starter Kit

The X6 E-cigarette is a sturdy and strong model that delivers good hits. The X6 is a good model in the next stage of 2nd generation e-cigarettes.

Features of the X6 E-cigarette

  • Stainless steel, strong and bigger.
  • Grunty battery with 3 variable voltage settings
  • Large holding tank with 3ml capacity.
  • Big vaping clouds and good lung hits.
  • 5-clicks locking system with different colors for each setting.
  • 510 Thread will fit with all ego and evod batteries although the x6 battery looks best with the x6 atomizer of course…



The X6 atomizer e-cigarette starter kit is the right upgrade from the Ego CE5, so if you want something similar but a little better go for it. The 1300mAh battery will give you vapor for days. The X6 is probably the best you can get in this style of e-cig before upgrading to 3rd generation electronic cigarettes. It’s bigger, more grunty and lasts longer than all the other 2nd generation e-cigarettes. There is one small fault with this model and that is the battery button can be pushed into the chamber if you press it down too hard. So don’t do that, knowing about this now so you don’t press the button down too far, you will have no problems. I use the x6 myself and have no issues. I love it.


Evod MT3 Variable Voltage Twin E-Cig Starter Kit

The Evod MT3 Twin Kit is very similar to the CE5 with 2 vaporizers and batteries. This is one of the most popular kits I have, and it’s no wonder why… because it’s awesome. I also have the Evod MT3 Single Blister kit (very similar to the ego ce5 blister kit, but the evods are bottom filled while the egos are top filled.)

Features of the Evod MT3 E-Cig Starter Kit

  • Fits for evod and ego series e cig as it has the universal 510 thread..
  • Detachable, convenient to use, easy to fill with E-liquid.
  • With no wick no hole, heating from the bottom. This type of coil works very well and can be easily replaced. See the accessories page for spares.
  • Inhaler is with nice transparent color.
  • Special designed visible window, you can see the e-liquid when you are using it.



Evod is a very reliable brand and this starter kit is the best double kit we have. The airflow tube in the Evod MT3 is larger than the CE5 making it easier to get a bigger vape. Another advantage of the Evod MT3 is the variable voltage Evod battery which gives you 3 stages of power to choose from. Renowned for its reliability, no leaking and high durability, the Evod MT3 twin pack is a really good option, and only a few dollars more than the CE5 double kit. Perfect for both the beginner and experienced vaper. The Evod MT3 Twin Starter Kit is one of the most popular kits I have, and there’s a very good reason why that is. Because it’s awesome!


Joytech Ego AIO E-Cig Starter Kit

The Joytech AIO (all in one) Starter Kit is a relatively new kit into the inventory and is fast becoming one of the most popular kits in the entire inventory.


  • No leaks compact unit
  • Child-proof (pressure-twist) cap
  • Modifiable air-flow (excellent feature)
  • 2 security circuits shielding you from over-charging, over-discharging and also over-current
  • Spiral Framework for boosted vapour generation
  • Max filling line so you don’t over-fill
  • Pick eight lighting alternatives: red, yellow, blue, indigo, white, purple, or off (Turn it off with five clicks then hold down the fire button to go into color choice ).
  • Coils readily available in 0.5, 1.0 and also 1.5 ohm resistances to match your vaping preference.
  • Micro-USB charging.
  • 2ml container capability.


The Joytech Ego AIO e-cigarette is another one similar to the X6. I say that meaning it is as grunty an e-cigarette you can get before moving on to a 3rd generation kit. I have had several customers who have already tried the ego and evod kits before finally moved on to the AIO, and they all say they have found their favorite. The AIO is the one they are sticking with. It is no wonder why they like it so much, it is really easy to operate (being an AIO, it is so simple… no need to pull things apart when charging, simply plug it in.) It is also really grunty and gives good strong vapes, the battery lasts easily all day, and the entire kit is extremely cheap. This is one of the cheapest kits I have, although still high quality. So if you are wanting something better than the average 2nd generation e-cig without getting into a 3rd generation, and you don’t want to break the bank, then the AIO is definitely for you!


Third Generation E-Cigarettes

As 3rd generation e-cigarettes are more grunty than 2nd generation, they pack a much bigger punch. Therefore it is highly recommended to use less nicotine in your e-juice mixture as to keep your hit from becoming too dry. Because the coil burns hotter, the nicotine becomes concentrated and can easily feel too strong if you take big vapes with regular high strength nicotine e-juice in the tank. See more about e-juice strengths here.


Kangertech Topbox

The Kanger Topbox Mini Kit is the best product we have on this entire website. This is a very high quality e-cigarette product made by the number one electronic cigarette manufacturing company in the world, Kangertech.

Features of the Kanger Topbox Mod E-cigarette

  • Dimensions: 2-5/8″L x 7/8″D (with drip tip)
  • 510 Connector, fits with all 510 thread parts from other models
  • Beautifully crafted for excellent flavor and operation
  • High quality glass tank
  • Adjustable airflow control
  • Japanese organic cotton coil make for clean taste
  • The Mini RBA Base Allows the User to Build His Own Coils
  • Hige 4mL e-Liquid Capacity
  • 510 Drip Tip Compatible
  • 510 Drip Tip Included in Every Purchase



If you don’t want anything but the best then choose the kanger topbox mini kit. This product is probably the highest quality e-cigarette model in the world. Everything about this unit is of highest possible quality. It is better in every single way than any other model at all. Top of the line. If you are one of those people who only the best will do, then the Topbox is the device you want, period. Everything about this device is simply exceptional! NOTE: Not recommended for beginners. (unless you want to skip the initiation step of starting with a 2nd generation e-cigarette.)


Kangertech Dripbox

The Kanger Dripbox E-Cigarette Kit is also a high quality e-cigarette product made by Kangertech. This model is very similar to the Topbox but has a few less settings and is also a little cheaper. The speciality with the Dripbox is that it is what is called a Squonk Box. That simply means it’s a bottom-feeder mod. It uses a special RDA with an open channel in the shaft. Rather than the normal dripping e-liquid onto the top, there is a plastic bottle that holds the liquid actually inside the mod. There’s a cutout on the side to allow pressing the bottle. Pressing will force the eliquid up to the RDA saturating the coil. Basically, it’s dripping without the pissing about.


  • Measurements: 58mm W/ 21mm D/ 120mm H
  • Output Power level wattage: Consistent 60W
  • Huge 7ml juice storage capacity
  • RBA components



The Kangertech Dripbox is a phenomenal e-cigarette kit. This is for those of you who want high quality but can’t afford the Topbox. The Dripbox is 2nd best! This e-cigarette kit is perfect for those moving on to the third generation experience. This is a well made, powerful mod and made to last. And as with all my kits, it comes with everything you need including, chargers, and e-juice. NOTE: Not recommended for beginners. (unless you think you can handle it… :))


Elox Mod E-Cigarette

The Elox e-cigarette atomizer and box mod is an entry model for those wanting to experience a third generation e-cigarette without the high price tag!


  • Well made box mod variable voltage 15-45 watts
  • Beautiful silver, gold or black steel
  • Massive 5ml juice container capacity
  • Comes with charging cord, NZ wall adapter plug, and two extra grunty coil heads.



The Elox Mod Kit is an awesome kit for those wanting to try out a 3rd generation e-cig. It packs a mean punch and is really cheap. It is reliable, looks good and is very powerful. The downside is it doesn’t have any airflow settings, so the air hole is open all the time. This is fine if you like big vapes and strong hits, as this wee mod sure does deliver. So if you like big hits and want to experience a third generation e-cig but also you don’t want to spend a lot, then this is for you. NOTE: Not recommended for amateurs. (unless you think you can handle big hits… :))


The Magic Stick E-Cigarette

The Magic Stick Box Mod Starter Kit is a brand new third generation electronic cigarette kit. This one is powerful, compact and easy to use. The magic stick has a well made high quality steel tank with high resistance atomizer and coil. The atomizer features air intake control which is vital because the grunty 2200mah battery has no voltage settings so it’s constantly set. However, the air hole control allows for awesome controlled vapes so the lack of variable voltage adjustments doesn’t matter. And you can use the other coil which also changes the vapour levels.


  • Size: 82.5 × 37 × 21MM.
  • Power: When the atomizer is 0.3Ω, the output power can reach 40W, when the atomizer is 0.3-0.5Ω , the output power is PWM output
  • Material: zinc alloy, aluminum alloy.
  • Battery capacity: 2200MAH.
  • Resistance range: 0.3-2.5Ω.
  • 22MM atomizer.
  • Size: 22 × 51.2MM.
  • Weight: 47g.
  • Material: Stainless steel.
  • Capacity: 2 ml.
  • Thread: 510.



The Magic Stick is a fantastic 3rd generation e-cigarette, and is perfect for anybody wanting a cheap but issue free box mod experience. I recommend this to anyone wanting something a bit more power than the 2nd generation vaporizers. (not quite as powerful as the Elox but still gives big hits and capable of mammoth clouds). It is a perfect entry level box mod to start with. The only drawback is it doesn’t have variable voltage settings. However, the air intake control and extra coil makes up for that very acceptably. And… another good thing about the magic stick kit is that it’s cheap. (under $50)
