Vape Starter Kits Explained
If you're new to vaping, opting for a starter kit is the best place to begin your journey, as it includes everything you need in one package. For example, our classic pen & e-liquid starter pack is ideal for newbies who don't want the hassle of knowing which devices and flavours they should use. Pick your flavour type and strength, and we'll provide you with our original starter vape pen and 7 of our most popular flavours.
If you're a regular smoker, surveys have shown that you're more likely to choose a vape pen over a pod or mod as they're similar in shape to cigarettes. If this sounds more to your liking, check out our Cosmo A1 vape pen kit. It's a simple starter pen with handy little features in a premium build. At just £15.99 with 3 free e-liquids, it's an absolute bargain.
Whilst vaping requires a little more upkeep than smoking, you shouldn't notice too much of a difference in your daily routine. A good kit should help you transition from smoking whilst still giving you the nicotine hit you're craving and helping with the day-to-day sensation of holding a cigarette.
With so many different kits and bundles available on the market, it can sometimes be confusing, which is why at 88Vape, we pride ourselves on providing fantastic customer service. If you have any questions about our products, speak to our friendly team or check out our FAQ page.
Costs Of Smoking Vs Vaping
Money is often a significant factor behind a person quitting smoking. When you consider that a moderately heavy smoker (smoking one pack a day) can generally save over £1200 a year, it's clear to see that you can save money when you move over to a vape starter kit.
Our classic pen and e-liquid starter pack is available for just £12.00 (with seven flavours included), making it a more cost-effective alternative to buying cigarettes. Moreover, with our premium e-liquids all manufactured in our Manchester facility and starting from £1, it's no wonder why we're one of the leading vaping companies in the UK.
While many people immediately think of the financial benefits of vaping, they can often forget about their health. It's no secret that smoking can contribute to a range of conditions, which vary in severity.
From continuous cough to long-term breathing conditions and lung cancer, smokers face many hazards every time they light up. But vaping has no direct link to cancer and doesn't have the harmful toxins associated with tobacco.
Tar and carbon monoxide can pollute the lungs, and heavy smokers often suffer later in life. But while experts cannot say that vaping has no health implications, they're significantly lesser than smoking tobacco, up to 95% less!
Smoking can cause a host of issues, and non-smokers particularly don't like to be around heavy smokers. Tobacco smoke smells, and regardless of how many mints you chew or how much body spray you use, cigarette smoke sticks to your clothing, walls, hair and breath.
When you switch to vaping, you eliminate those problems and notice that people don't avoid you so much. Vape pens mean you can get your nicotine hit without the smell of cigarettes.
New vapers often comment that their lifestyle is better, so if you're sick of people commenting on the cigarette smell, switching from smoking to vaping can give you a new lease of life.

What is a vape starter kit?
A vape starter kit includes all of the hardware you need to get started with vaping. Inside our starter kits you'll get a battery, a tank, at least one coil a charging cable and an instruction manual.
What are the different types of vape starter kits?
There are two main types of vape kit; open and closed.
Open Vape KitsOpen vape kits come in a range of different shapes and sizes, however the key similarity is that they can be refilled with any compatible e-liquid. Generally, they come with larger batteries and provide a more customisable vaping experience. Despite a higher upfront cost, they work out much cheaper than closed vape kits in the medium to longer term.
Closed Vape KitsClosed vape kits come with pre-filled pods that can't be refilled or come in the shape of disposable vape pens. Single use pre-filled pods and disposable vapes provide an extremely convenient way to vape as there is minimal maintenance and require no experience, however they are less cost effective in the long-run.
What are the different vaping styles?
There are two different techniques when it comes to vaping; 'Mouth to Lung' and 'Direct to Lung'. Both have key differences in the way that vapour is inhaled and the type of device and liquids that are required.
Mouth to Lung (MTL)MTL vaping is similar in style to smoking a cigarette. You first draw vapour in to your mouth, and then you inhale it in to your lungs. Most smokers begin their vaping journey using this method as it lends itself stronger throat hits and higher nicotine strengths.
Direct to Lung (DTL)DTL vaping involves inhaling vapour directly in to the lungs and tends to be favoured by those who have a little more vaping experience and aren't as heavily reliant on nicotine.
What is a vape pen kit?
This style of kit is where many ex-smokers start their vaping journey. Traditional vape pens are cylindrical in shape and tend to be favoured by those who don't want anything too complex, vaping in a mouth to lung style for a more intense throat hit. These are open vape kits which means that you can fill up with any compatible e-liquid of your choice. Depending on the kit, you will either need to replace the CE4 or the coil within the tank when performance starts to dip. All of our pen style vape kits are designed with new and seasoned vapers in mind.
What is a vape pod kit?
Vape pod kits are compact and easy to use, offering plenty benefits including convenience and minimal maintenance. Apart from shape and aesthetics, the main difference between a pod kit and any other type of vape kit is that they use removable and replaceable pods instead of tanks. Some pod kits are open or closed systems, sometimes both, with refillable or pre-filled pods available to buy.
What is a sub-ohm vape kit?
Sub-ohm vape kits tend to be favoured by more experienced vapers or those who prefer a direct to lung style of vaping. These kits are designed to work with higher VG e-liquids, so you can expect more vapour production but lower nicotine strengths. Sub-ohm kits are high powered with larger batteries, so you can expect these devices to be a little bulkier and heavier than other vape kit types, however they often have more features such as variable wattage, adjustable airflow or multiple coil resistance variations.
What's the best vape kit for me?
There is no simple answer to this as it all depends on what factors are important to you, however, the quick overview below will guide you in the right direction.
Best Vape Kit for BeginnersAssuming you are a soon to be ex-smoker (you can do it!), you need a device which is simple to use, low maintenance and replicates the sensation of smoking a cigarette.
For this, we recommend the Cosmo A1. It's reliable, smooth and has some simple yet convenient features to 'keep you interested' once the initial novelty of vaping wears off.
