There are so many choices out there for e-cigarettes, that it's kinda difficult to wade through all the hype. They've also been around long enough now that the information about a lot of things is no longer current. I recommend only looking at reviews and info that's no more than a year old. Look for that when you're investigating things. If you're reading this after March of 2014, then disregard it all and find a different blog post from someone else.
Now, with all that crap out of the way, let's get into it.
If you learn nothing more from this post, learn this: Avoid the kits at your gas station. Most of them are Blu and NJoy and Fin. There are far better options out there that are more likely to keep you on the e-cig path rather than make you all discouraged because your crappy e-cig kit cost you a fortune and doesn't work well. Feel free to get a Blu disposable and try it, but know that the kits I list below will work FAR better than anything you're bound to come across at a convenience store.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I bought the 510 kit from www.zeecigs.com. Shawn shipped it to me from Texas to New York in two days. Two. Ordered on 3/9, received on 3/11. Two damn days. The guy is fast.

So I try everything.
The 510 kit has cartridges and atomizers and looks like it might be a bit leaky overall. It works great and is small. The batteries charge quickly. The draw on it is incredible. It's a great system. Plus there are sealed clearomizers for this system as well elsewhere on the internet. (If Shawn ever gets them in stock on ZeeCigs, it'll be a near-perfect setup.)
The Ego battery with the clearomizer is easy to fill, and definitely does not leak. I can see how much liquid is in there and it's going to last me a long while. The battery lasts a long time. (Been using it for 6 hours straight and it's still going.) And from what I've read it will recharge quickly too.
For you, what you should get depends on three questions:
- How big of an e-cigarette are you going to be comfortable using?
- How long do you need the battery to last
- If you need it to last a long time and want a small e-cigarette - which of these two items is more important?

The 510The 510 is compact. Just slightly larger than an actual cigarette. It's like a Camel Wide 100 if they make such a thing. The battery should last you a couple of hours. As long as you have access to electricity then you can always keep your second battery charged and ready. Shawn sells the budget kit for $39.75 right now.
