Stoptober 2021: The Best Starter Kits for Quitting Smoking

Stoptober 2021: The Best Starter Kits for Quitting Smoking

Melissa Greenlaw

Stoptober is well under way! We hope your quit smoking journey is going well so far, but if you’re using disposables, now’s the perfect time to consider switching to a reusable vape kit! Offering better flavour and longer battery life, starter kits are perfect for ex-smokers looking for an accessible and greener alternative to cigarettes. 

Throughout October, we’re giving away three free bottles of selected e-liquids with every kit purchase, so there’s really never been a better time to make the switch to vaping! To help you find the right kit for you, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite starter kits, including all the most popular brands. So let’s dive in!

Aspire Vilter

First up is the Aspire Vilter. This sleek and portable kit offers unbeatable value for money and delicious flavour. The main feature of the Aspire Vilter that ex-smokers will enjoy is its unique Vilter paper filters. Made from 100% recyclable organic paper, they closely mimic the feeling of a cigarette filter without the harmful chemicals of smoking, allowing you to enjoy your nicotine hit safely. 

There’s also the option to use a regular Delrin 510 drip tip, which is supplied with the starter pack. The handy bottom fill design allows you to try endless e-liquid flavours whilst maintaining that iconic cigarette-like sensation. 

As a new vaper, you’re probably concerned about the reliability and safety of your first kit. Aspire’s implemented their self-developed ASP Chipset into the Vilter, which provides protection against all of the modern vaper’s main concerns. This includes overheating, short-circuiting and overcharging, making the Vilter a sound and trustworthy investment. 

You don’t need to worry about any confusing settings either. Thanks to the Vilter’s auto-draw system, there’s no fiddly buttons to hold down whilst vaping. Simply fill the pod with your favourite liquid, attach the tip of your choice and that’s it – you’re good to go! 

Many more advanced vaping kits can be overwhelming for beginners, but the Aspire Vilter starter kit is the perfect solution for individuals looking for an accessible electronic cigarette that they can immediately get to grips with.

VooPoo Vinci

The Voopoo Vinci Pod Kit is a slim and portable kit that packs a punch in terms of performance and flavour.

The Vinci Pod Kit is super easy to use, featuring a single slider to adjust the airflow and wattage up to a max of 15W. The device is also auto draw-activated, meaning all you need to do is take a puff as you would on a cigarette to enjoy some rich and flavoursome vapour.

The Vinci Pod Kit is powered by an 800mAh battery for all-day use, and the whole kit runs on VooPoo’s improved Gene AI chipset, which brings a host of functions including intelligent coil recognition and multiple safety protections. Another nice touch is the Gene logo that breathes colours from green to red as you inhale to show you how low your battery is getting.

The Vinci Pod cartridges have an e-liquid capacity of 2ml, are leak-resistant and easy to fill thanks to a silicone seal. Unlike previous Vinci models that use replaceable coils, the Vinci Pod Kit uses closed-system pods with an internal coil of 0.8ohms for a flavoursome and satisfying MTL vaping experience. Once your pod has reached the end of its life, you just replace it with a new one. 

Priced at just £19.99, the VooPoo Vinci is a solid investment that’ll boost your vaping experience tenfold, especially if you’re switching from disposables.

Joyetech eGo

The eGo Pod is colourful, compact and easy-to-use. With a 1000mAh battery that can last up to two days between charges, it delivers the perfect all-day vape for those who enjoy a tight MTL sensation. 

The biggest selling point of the eGo is its Avatar IC 1.0 chip, which comes with a host of protection features. It has an 8-second cut-off, overcharge and short-circuit protection to keep you vaping safely. The chip also reduces power consumption, giving you a longer battery life when you’re on the move. With its auto-draw feature, the eGo makes for a great alternative to disposables as there’s no fiddly buttons to press.

The eGo Pod cartridges contain a 1.2ohm atomizer head, which has been designed for use with both freebase and nicotine salt e-liquids. A child-resistant push refill mechanism not only minimises the risk of leakage, but also provides an additional layer of safety. 

This starter kit delivers a mouth-to-lung inhale vaping experience, which makes it ideal for vapers who prefer a more restricted draw. Once the coil housed within reaches the end of its lifespan, simply replace the cartridge with a new one to continue vaping. Priced at just £9.99, the Joyetech eGo is a reliable and accessible kit that you won’t want to put down. 

Aspire Favostix

The Aspire Favostix Kit is built from aluminium alloy oxide and is the ideal kit to suit a wide range of vaping styles. It provides a consistent throat hit complete with amazing flavour, so it’s perfect for MTL vaping.

If you're looking for a high-tech Pod Kit, the Aspire Favostix could be the perfect kit for you. Choose between auto-draw and the fire button, and it offers up to 30 watts of vaping power, putting you back in control of your clouds. To keep on top of your vaping, Aspire has fitted a 0.43 inch OLED screen which tells you in real-time how much battery power you’ve got left, along with your wattage levels. 

There are 2 different pods to choose from, the 0.6 Ohm mesh coil, which works best at 15W-18W, and the 1.0 Ohm coil, which is best used at 12W-15W. It's also very easy to fill up the device, as all you have to do is lift the plug at the bottom of the disposable pod and fill it roughly two thirds full with the e-liquid of your choice.

Enjoy a whole day of vaping on just one charge with a built-in 1000 mAh large capacity battery and type-c quick charging. At just £24.99, the Aspire Favostix are the obvious choice for MTL fans looking for a little extra battery life. 

UWELL Caliburn A2

Combine style and simplicity with the Caliburn A2 pod kit. Offering a tight mouth-to-lung vape with premium 0.9 Ohm mesh coils, this starter kit is perfect for both beginners and experienced vapers looking for both great taste and value for money, priced at just £17.95.

This flexible device allows you to choose between button activated and auto-draw inhale, with the button doubling as a lock to make sure the Caliburn won’t fire in your pocket. The fixed power output delivers a consistent level of vapour with every puff, and the handy e-Liquid window allows you to keep a close eye on your vape juice level.

The A2 pods offer a quick and clean refilling with a snap-lid, mess-free design complete with pre-installed coils. The Caliburn pairs perfectly with all your favourite 50VG/50PG and high PG E-Liquids, so you can enjoy experimenting with a wide range of flavours and nicotine salts.
