Best Vape Starter Kits Introduction

Starter kits are a whole different thing than they were 5 years ago. When most of us started vaping, a starter kit consisted of a tiny little pen-style vaporizer. Now, starter kits cover a broad spectrum of devices. While pen style devices are still very available, a great number of manufacturers have been releasing “starter” kits packed with premium mods and premium sub-tanks. 

Listing the best vape starter kits 2018 would involve a significant amount of devices, so for this article, we will extract a few devices from each starter kit category. These categories involve AIO (All-In-One) systems, premium starter kits and traditional starter kits.

Polar Starter Kit Video Review 

Vaporesso finds its place two times on this best vape starter kits list. This is because, well, they are doing amazing things and they deserve it. The new Polar is the newest device to find its place among the Vaporesso lineup. It is strikingly similar to the Revenger series of mods but it comes out of the box with their all new Omni 4.0 OS.

OMNI is as accurate as any DNA chip, at half the cost. The device fires instantly and reliability is fantastic. The Polar comes with the Cascade Baby SE, a smaller version of the original Cascade tank. This tank has an ucanny ability to produce flavour similar to that of any RTA on the market. The coils last a good while and overall, it is a sturdy and dependable unit.

VOOPOO Drag Black Box Mod Video Review 

The VOOPOO drag is not exactly a new device but since the start of 2018 it has been revamped and given a fresh makeover. The black edition is just that, an all black box mod. This edition of the Drag comes with the UFORCE T1 tank, also an update from the original tank that came with the Drag starter kit.

The GENE has recieved an update with the Black edition as well, making the chip all that much better than it was before.

Overall, the Drag has not changed much but its reliability and performance have remained consistent and many vapers still avidly support this brand, so it deserves a spot on this best vape starter kits list.

Innokin EZ-Watt Video Review 

Innokin has received praise for their starter kits ever since the Endura T18. The Endura was said to be one of the very best vape starter kits for quitting smoking. Its effective performance aided countless smokers to kick the habit.

The EZ Watt carries that very same performance standard as the Endura series, as well as the typical quality you would expect from Innokin.

The device actually has a separate tiny box and removable tank. The EX-Watt delivers a nice hit to the throat and has a great ability to crush cravings in their tracks. Paired with Nicotine Salt e-juice, the EX-Watt is very effective.

Veteran vapers will even love this device for its box feel in a very small package.

  • It’s Tricky To Clean The Coil Base

Vaporesso Orca Solo Starter Kit Video Review 

For the third and final time, Vaporesso finds it’s way onto this best vape starter kits list, rightfully so. The Orca Solo is a standard pen style device but it is fairly small in comparison to others currently for sale.

The feel and quality of the Orca are as expected and fantastic. The Orca offers a small airflow ring, something not found on every device. This airflow ring allows the vaper to dial into their preferred vaping experience rather than being stuck with full open airflow or a device with inadequate airflow.

The device overall is very simple, yet flashy. There are no bells and whistles with the Orca, just a reliable device that works very well.
