One question we’re always asked is, “I’m thinking of vaping – what should I get to start?” To some, the perfect entry to vaping is the time-honored cig-a-like – after all, it most closely resembles the look and feel of smoking and might be enough to keep a quitter from reverting back to tobacco, though most of the time it’s a temporary fix.
Of course, disposable cig-a-likes don’t last long, and often don’t have enough power to keep smokers from getting frustrated. So, there are also pod mods, pen-style tank vapes, and more – all designed to move users toward more advanced experiences.
But, in this writer’s opinion, the ideal beginner vape mod kit is the one that moves users away from the look and feel of cigarettes, and to an experience that is decidedly different than smoking. Just as smokers are evolving past that habit, vaping has evolved to a practice that stands entirely on its own.
The selections below might not be the simplest products on shelves. They might not be the smallest. They might not be the right choices for EVERYONE. But, we feel the devices in this article balance the simplicity and usability of true entry-level products, with the advanced performance and capabilities of higher-end mods.
These are our selections, of course – there are always going to be debates and arguments to be had. Let us know what we missed in the comments section below!
VAPE MOD KITS FOR BEGINNERS - WRAPPING UP
Of all the lists we’ve done these past few months, this was perhaps the most difficult. Because the term “beginner” is so broad, it’s difficult to assess individual needs and wants in a breakdown of various products. What one vaper sees as necessary, others might see as extraneous. Where some want more control, others just want to press fire and vape away.
We feel the items listed above represent the best possible cross-section of beginner vape mods around today. None of the above look or work alike. None share identical features. And none do everything perfectly.
But one trait the above devices share is fantastic, beginner-friendly operation, and top-tier performance, whether the user is at 25 or 100 watts. They simply do what they need to deliver flavor and vapor to users who have graduated from smaller, less enjoyable devices – and they open the doors to much bigger possibilities down the line.
