Beginner's Guide to Choosing the Best Vape Starter Kit

Beginner's Guide to Choosing the Best Vape Starter Kit

Last Updated: Jul 29, 2021
Making the change from smoking cigarettes to vaping should be a simple decision for a smoker to make. With Public Health England attesting, vaping is 95% safer than smoking cigarettes. Vaping does not only help ex-smokers satisfy their nicotine cravings to help them move on from a life without tobacco, but it also offers a plethora of flavours to discover and exciting devices to explore with.

It is interesting to see how much vaping has evolved in the most recent years, with an array of devices being released one after another. For the more experienced vapers it is easy to navigate among all the great choices that are out there, whether going for a pod system, or take to the next level by getting a rebuildable atomiser.

But how do you ultimately make the choice? With so many products on the market it’s precisely the  choices available to new vapers that can make it overwhelming for those who are new or unfamiliar with e-cigarettes, e-liquids and vaping accessories.

In this blog we are going to be looking at the different options out there as it can be very overwhelming, which are Mouth To Lung and Direct To Lung vaping, mostly referred to as Sub-Ohm.

Mouth to Lung: The One Kit


My first suggestion to someone who is aiming to stop the use of cigarettes and move on to vaping, would be to first try Mouth To Lung (also referred to as MTL) vaping first. Most commonly MTL devices are known to be simpler to use, portable while also lightweight, and being the devices that are best replicating the feeling of smoking a cigarette, due to the restricted airflow and firing at low wattage. Classic inhales, is when you take a draw on the
vape before you inhale. This action is very familiar to all cigarette smokers, since it is the act you need to perform in order to smoke.

Our suggestion for a MTL device would definitely be The One Kit. This is a device that does a great job in giving good flavour and creating a pleasant throat hit, making your switch to e-cigarette smoother than you will expect.

The One Kit was also a product of study with the Queen Mary University of London. They have found through their own clinical trial using our One Kit.

“E-Cigarettes are almost twice as effective as nicotine replacement treatments such as patches and gums, at helping smokers to quit”. You cannot go wrong with choosing The one kit as your first MTL device, as among other things it has helped many thousands of our customers to stop smoking.

The One Kit Features:

  • Easy to use and maintain
  • High portability
  • Japanese Organic Cotton
  • Built on Stainless Steel
  • Micro USB Charging port
  • 1000 mAh Rechargeable Battery
  • Perfect for High PG or 50/50 e-liquid
  • Great for Salt Nicotine Flavour
  • Ideal For CBD e-liquids



Direct to Lung: Innokin Proton Mini Ajax Kit

MTL vaping it’s not the only way one can stop smoking. Direct to Lung (also referred to as DTL or more commonly as Sub-Ohm), is the act of breathing the vapour straight in, very similar to the way shisha is inhaled and smoked. Vapers who prefer a lower nicotine intake and a more enhanced flavour, generally go for Sub-Ohm devices. This means that the ohm resistance is lower than 1 ohm, which tends to send more power to the coil, which produces bigger vapour clouds and more flavour. Since they require more power to operate, it is logical to expect a device much bigger in size when compared to the MTL kits, and therefore they might be less pocket friendly or less indicated to be used as starter kits.

For those still looking for a Sub-Ohm kit, then we definitely recommend the  Innokin Proton Mini Ajax kit. This is a device that allows you to be immersive in your vaping experience with features and settings that cover every need, and with the use of the Plex 3D coils, will intensify clouding and flavour production. Also the screen is polished, which is ideal in order to have a clue of what is happening to your device, and change settings on the go.

Innokin Proton Mini Ajax Kit Features:
  • Sleek built quality
  • Accurate reading for Wattage and voltage
  • Well designed Ajax tank
  • Internal 3400 mAh rechargeable battery
  • Optimal grip on fire bar for one-handed use
  • Well built Multi-Directional Joystick
  • User friendly menu system

These devices are among the best for each category, and will unquestionably improve your chances for quitting smoking, and going for a healthier alternative to cigarettes.
