Best Vape Kits for Beginners With Varied Smoking Habits

Best Vape Kits for Beginners With Varied Smoking Habits

Vape kits are proving to be one of the most effective methods to help people quit smoking successfully. More so even than nicotine patches or gum. Why you ask? Because it’s the closest method in habit to smoking, performing the same action by inhaling nicotine, but without the thousands of other dangerous toxins. It allows the vaper greater control over what they’re inhaling at the push of a button or even by auto-draw like you would a cigarette.

There are thousands of different devices out there developed over the years by vape brands like Vaporesso, Innokin, Vsavi, Smok, XEO and many more, each jostling for position to demonstrate why their devices are the best to help smokers quit with a viable alternative.

But with so much choice, which is the best for you? Great question! Each smoker will need something different from a vape depending on their smoking habits. This guide, which we will continue to develop and update as brands do with innovation, features some of the best devices for 2024 vaping.

We have selected a mixture from six brands to not overwhelm but highlight what we think are great value, similar in style or appearance to cigarettes, or provide versatility so you can customise how you like.

Remember – you may not get the perfect experience the first time, but vaping is about trial and error, testing and experimentation to find the suitable experience for your needs to reduce your nicotine level in time, before ideally quitting both nicotine products permanently.

Xeo Void Device

XEO Void – Best Easy-to-Fill Customise Vape

Smoking habits can vary so much because the six million that do so frequently, often have different reasons for starting, and even why they can’t quit. Some may choose to do so only socially to feel part of a group, and smoke on a night out, while others may be used to more than 20 a day for many years.

Whatever your habits, any new vaper wants something easy to fill, good to carry around, with the possibility to try and test different e-liquids and nicotine strengths.

For these reasons, we couldn’t look beyond the XEO Void as our number one choice, because it would appeal to every level of vaper.

The two mouthpieces have different coils attached. If you didn’t know already, a coil will heat the e-liquid at different speeds, creating different results. A mouth-to-lung coil allows for a mouth-to-lung vape, which is the same style of ‘drag’ or pull as you would smoking.

In contrast, a direct lung vape experience means inhaling e-liquid straight into the lungs and back out, for a high-cloud volume vape. Once vapers get used to the right nicotine level for them, and start dropping the strength, many tend to move away from MTL to DTL vaping, so the Void is the perfect first vape.

Made in Germany, it’s your typical well-designed piece of craftsmanship that doesn’t look too flashy but does a great job. Because the mouthpiece and coil are together, you screw this into the battery base (a big 1500mAh capacity) and there is a clever fill port at the top for replenishing your e-liquid levels.

It therefore provides a leakproof solution to allow for a smooth and efficient vape experience, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced vaper. To customise even further, there is an adjustable airflow ring right below the mouthpiece to get a tighter or looser draw!

What You Get for £37.99

  • 1 x XEO VOID Vaporizer (1500mAh) with a 2ml Tank
  • 1 x VOID Atomizer Head 0.6 Ohm for Sub-Ohming (vape to lungs)
  • 1 x VOID Atomizer Head 1.0 Ohm (mouth to lungs vaping)

Innokin EZ Tube Zenith Minimal Vape Kit

Innokin EZ Tube Zenith Minimal – Best Versatile Kit

Innokin is a brand that has always delivered above and beyond for new vapers who hope for a smooth transition. Their devices are reliable, tailored towards beginners and designed with practicality and an effortless nature in mind.

The EZ Tube Zenith Minimal is a fine example of the brand's trajectory and showcases its innovation to help smokers quit – regardless of how much they previously smoked.

Offering two different mouthpieces, two coils, a spare replacement tube and a tutorial QR card, there is plenty of information and accessories that come with the kit to help any vaper get started on their nicotine cessation journey!

Boasting a large 2100mAh battery and one of the most intuitive LED displays we have seen on a vape, which is located at the very base and operated via an adjustable ring, the device is as stylish as it is user-friendly, such is the way with Innokin products.

V2 Vsavi Classic Vape Kit

Vsavi Starter Kit – Best for Smoking Resemblance and Simplicity

A lot of smokers find it difficult to quit the habit that they’ve been addicted to for so long, and it’s only natural because of its nature. It can often feel daunting trying to quit when there is not a suitable replacement, which in the past was even more challenging when the substitutes were gum, patches and sprays, or going cold turkey.

E-cigarettes definitely have their use, but to smokers might be confusing as it’s electronic, and in some cases so customisable. That’s where simple ‘cigalike’ starter kits like the one designed by Vsavi play a huge role in helping smokers transition away from cigarettes to a suitable alternative.

The Vsavi Starter kit if you saw it in a supermarket looks very similar to a cigarette in terms of packaging. And once you open the container which holds the battery and charger, you’ll notice once set up it’s very similar to a cigarette in shape and design.

And better yet, Vsavi offers 15 different prefilled cartridge flavours which easily screw onto the base of the battery, which you charge with a micro USB cable.

9 days in with the beginner kit and not touched or felt the need for a cigarette! After smoking for nearly 40 years I just cannot believe it.

You can pick between a manual or automatic battery (inhaled by puffing on the mouthpiece), and a standard or long size. There are traditional tobacco flavours such as Red, Sahara and Congress, which make the switch easier for those who prefer old-school cigarette flavours. There are also lots of menthol options if you have missed that experience since the UK 2020 menthol cigarette ban.

Or you can try the fruity or sweet options such as grape, chocolate or vanilla should you prefer something a bit sweeter.

Overall, it’s a simple and effective device that’s geared towards beginners who don’t want to switch straight away to a new device full of features and instead prefer continuing with a device that’s similar in fashion and nature to smoking, without the thousands of lethal toxins found in cigarettes!

What You Get for £23.99

  • 1 x Long Automatic Battery
  • 5 x V2 Cigs Cartridges (1 x 5 packs of cartridges of your flavour/strength choice)
  • USB Express Charger
  • User Manual


Smok Nord C Pod Kit

Smok Nord C – Best New Kit for Style and Compact Design

If you’re used to cloud chasing but want something light and easy to carry around, the Smok Nord C is for you. Is the style of your vape kit more important? With the honeycomb layered pattern and two-tone colour schemes, for male and female vapers, there are tons of options that could suit any preference.

In terms of functions and features, the Nord C also impresses us, with step-less airflow control, up to 50W of power and enough cloud production for the cloud-chasing enthusiast, the Smok Nord C delivers on so many levels for a great price.

There are even two different coils with the kit, meaning you can vape Sub-Ohm at 0.16 Ohms or even a little higher via a restrictive direct lung hit at 0.6 Ohms. Filling e-liquids couldn’t be easier with the top fill method (not always a given with the Smok Nord series) and it’s also compatible with a range of other coils from the RPM2 series.

Overall, it’s a seriously stylish and compact device that will appeal to anyone who hopes to not just look good while vaping but packs a punch too!

What You Get for £22.95

  • 1 x Smok Nord C Device
  • 1 x Smok Nord C Pod
  • 1 x Smok RPM 2 Meshed 0.16 Coil
  • 1 x Smok RPM 2 DC 0.6 RDL Coil
  • 1 x Type-C Charging Cable

Aspire Flexus Q Pod Kit

Aspire Flexus Q – Best Beginner Kit for Value

Smokers want minimal fuss when they switch over to vaping to save money. They often seek a device that has no thrills, and especially something they don’t need to wait around hours for to charge when the battery life is gone.

That’s why we have picked the simple and effective compact 700mAh Aspire Flexus Q. It charges up to 80% in only ten minutes, so even if you’re low on battery, it’s good to go in no time wherever you need to vape.

Leaking is kept to a minimum thanks to the efficient pod design which is side fill and for even better value, you get two coils that come with the kit, which are easily installed into the pods. There is an AF mesh coil, rated at 0.6 Ohm for a mouth-to-lung or restrictive direct lung vape (best vaped between 15-18W) and the second coil is a 1.0 Ohm tighter MTL 12-15W mesh design.

With an airflow control switch on the side, an LED battery indication level notifying the battery level and a smooth zinc alloy casing, it’s easy to use and comfortable to hold. Overall, for under £20, you have everything you need to get started vaping and very little knowledge is needed to experience a similar MTL inhalation of nicotine to smoking.

What You Get for £19.99

  • 1 x Aspire Flexus Q Pod Vape Device
  • 1 x Aspire Flexus Q 2ml Replacement Pod
  • 1 x Aspire Flexus Q 1.0 Ohm Mesh Coils (Installed)
  • 1 x Aspire Flexus Q 0.6 Ohm Mesh Coils

Uwell Caliburn G2 Pod Kit

Uwell Caliburn G2 – Best Starter Kit for Flavour

The Uwell Caliburn series is a long line over many years of highly productive pod kits that deliver banging flavour. This is due to the Pro Focs technology and adjustable airflow. With the Uwell Caliburn G2, we love how it looks and the fact it comes with two coils (0.8 Ohm and 1.2 Ohm) to try and maximise the flavour however you want it.

Compared to the previous Caliburn G, they have added haptic feedback which pulses when there is a protection warning with the device (a cool little feature) and an airflow ring at the base of the pod to tweak the performance, in addition to a wider more comfortable mouthpiece.

The G2 is a lightweight device that easily fits in the pocket of your bag – as well as providing a nice battery life, plus auto-draw and fire button options for personal preference.

The flavour produced from your chosen e-liquid is the main selling point of the Caliburn series and in particular the top fill Caliburn G, which although has been around for a while now is still popular with vapers that seek a device that’s compact, simple to vape and offers generous cloud production alongside the mesh coils.

What You Get for £23.99

  • 1 x Uwell Caliburn G2 Pod Vape Device
  • 1 x Uwell Caliburn G2 2ml Replacement Pod
  • 1 x Uwell Caliburn G2 1.2 Ohm Mesh Coils (Installed)
  • 1 x Uwell Caliburn G 0.8 Ohm Mesh Coils
  • 1 x Type-C Charging Cable
  • 1 x User Manual
