You’ve finished reading our introduction to vaping, and you’ve decided that switching to vaping is the right decision for you. You’re ready to take the plunge. An e-cigarette starter kit is the first thing that you should buy. Including a base unit, a tank and a selection of accessories, a starter kit includes almost everything you need to get started with vaping; just add e-liquid. In our 'Ultimate e-Cigarette Starter Kit Buying Guide', we describe what an e-cigarette starter kit should include and explain the differences between the most popular types of vaping kits.
The e-cigarette tank is arguably the most important component of your vaping setup. Changing your tank can have a profound impact on your device's vapour production and flavour quality -- and the best part is that buying a new tank is one of the cheapest ways to improve your vaping experience.

The tank is the most important part of your vaping setup, and the atomizer coil is the most important part of your tank. More than anything else, the atomizer coil determines the flavour you experience when vaping as well as the amount of vapour that your e-cigarette generates. Understanding how atomizer coils work can help you customize your vaping experience by choosing a tank with the features and performance you want. Is a nichrome coil better than a kanthal coil? Should you buy a coil with a ceramic wick? Read our 'Ultimate Atomizer Coil Buying Guide' to become a master of atomizer coils.
Sub-ohm vaping uses low-resistance atomizer coils to enable vaping devices to operate at higher wattage settings. Using a sub-ohm atomizer coil enables your e-cigarette to produce the biggest possible vapour clouds and deliver the richest possible flavour -- but you do need to learn a few simple electrical principles to use a sub-ohm coil safely. What are the best sub-ohm vaping kits on the market? How should you care for your batteries to avoid potential safety issues? Get the scoop in our comprehensive guide to sub-ohm vaping.
