Pocket friendly e-cigs?

  • #1
    Registered Users Posts: 48 ✭✭✭ Sgro


    Hi, looking for some recommendations. I had an eLeaf iStick Pico and while generally good find the one I have leaks easily (not sure if this is because I dropped it or the model itself not being great?).

    I have since gotten a Juul, I really like the size and the fact you can just stick it in the pocket however would like something in between with longer battery life and the ability to add my own e-liquid (not confined to pods).
    Something that is fairly sturdy and compact, that I can just throw in my pocket would be ideal.

    Open to any suggestions, thanks a mil.

  • Uwell Caliburn/KoKo 520mAh Battery <<< If you still can source them.

    Uwell Crown 1250mAh Battery.

    Vaporesso OSmall Pod Kit ~~~ 350mAh Battery


    Have the Caliburn & KoKo and enjoy using them.

    ^^^ Above are pod based system, if your worried about battery life, get more than one or have a small portable power-bank to charge on the go. Even with 1,200mAh you would get two charges or more on the smaller devices.

    If looking for something with bigger batteries & AIO where you can change coils etc. Check this thread. I have both voopoo 'Vinci' & 'Navi'

    Cheers thanks for this. The Voopoo Vinci looks quite good and I like the price point. Will I just need to buy replacement pods/coils every now and then? but I can continue to use any eliquid? Will I have to buy specialist pods?




  • I'm vaping over 3 years now and have used lots of different devices, both small and large, but for the last 18 months or so, I am using the Aspire Nautilus AIO and have 3 of them. They are small and compact, easy to carry, they use pods, but the pod is not throwaway.

    You change the coil and away you go again. They use the Aspire Nautilus coils which are available in almost every single vape shop, and the battery is 1000mah which will more or less get you through a day, perhaps needing a small charge towards the end of the day depending how much you use it.

    You use regular liquid, and I normally find a 1.8 Ohm coil lasts me about 2-3 weeks as long as you don't let the tank go oo low and end up dry burning the coil.

  • I really like the Aspire Breeze NXT as a pod thing. Very reliable - gave my first away and replaced it - neither ever leaked a drop, or spat a hot drop.

    But for suuuuper pocket friendly, I like the Geekvape Flint kit. Tiny like you wouldn't believe, and very reliable too.

    No need to replace the tank/pod unless you need to. Wear and abuse.
    Proprietary tank/pod. No 510 thread on the device, so you can't use other tanks.

    Depending on use coils can last up to 4 weeks.

    Use any eliquid you like but VG/PG ratios will depend on the resistance of coils.
    Or nic strength recommendations. https://www.voopoo.com/pnp-coils

    Vinci coils (or faulty tank) can cause leaks some times. But is a complaint with most AIO's.

    I'm about to quit smoking.

    Any thoughts on this for a beginner?

    I got the Nautilus Prime instead for €45
    Now to do my research...

    This came with two coils.

    25 mesh coil 0.70
    BVC coil 1.80

    Which one should I use?
    No clear instructions on how to replace the coil.




  • I thought the coil was pre installed, but maybe not?

    No experience with the new Nautilus myself but this might help

    Ah, that's the job. Thank you very much.
    I inserted the right coil now.

    Just waiting for it to prime.
    This is my first vape, so hoping I like it.

    Cheers Jonski!




  • I'm liking this so far at 20W.

    Can I use any liquid with this?

    By any liquid, I presume you mean any vaping liquid, so yes .

    Be careful looking for the nicest vape liquid, thats a rabbit hole you could get lost in :D

    It's also handy if you know other people who vape as you can try whatever they have before you buy . I play poker once a month with 5 other lads and a liquid came out a few years ago that had six different flavours and each of us preferred a different one .




  • Can pretty much use any liquid. Take your time and treat yourself at the beginning. :pac: I end up usually got with the 1.50 juices from Eurogiant but some of the ones in shop for 4-7 quid are lovely.




  • Thanks everyone. I got the 18mg tobacco flavour from the same shop.

    All this is new to me, but I'm 47 and don't want to be hitting my 50s and still smoking. It will kill me.

    Went for a routine hospital test two weeks ago, my blood pressure was over 200 to something.

    I need to get healthier.




  • I was the same age when I started, that was over six years ago and I haven't smoked since . Take your time and do it at your own pace .

    Get a couple of 12mg to have handy. I used 18mg for less than a week and didn't really need it.
    Some people prefer tobacco flavours, myself and most (in my experience at least) like others. One thing I found helpful was adding a little menthol to berry flavours especially at the start just for a little bit of a chest hit without being irritating.

    (I've had to quit smoking again recently :P I went back on them after a few years off and am finding it about as easy as last time)




  • I gave them up 3 years ago and I was 48 at the time. Never smoked a cigarette since.

    The one mistake most people make is trying a flavour or strength they dont like and going back to cigarettes. There is always another option.

    If you put in the .7 coil and you're vaping at 20w, then 18mg will probably be a bit too strong for you. Try it and see how you get on. Normally I use around 9 or 12 mg at 20w.

    If you use the 1.8 coil, you'll be vaping at far lower wattage and the 18 mg will work well with that, but you need the airflow turned right down.

    Keep experimenting and changing airflow and different strength and flavour juices and you'll be flying in no time. Best of luck with it




  • Also if you're still going I find it hard to recommend anything other than this: https://ecirette.ie/products/innokin-ez-watt-kit?_pos=1&_sid=a212ebe0b&_ss=r

    Worked for me and anyone else I recommended it to. Will last a few years. Only pity is the mod can't be bought on its own but should get 18 months out of it handy enough. Coils are cheap and available everywhere.

    Cheers! I went with the Aspire Nautilus Prime in the end, and happy so far.

    Have to research DIY juice now, as the premixed flavours can be limited in choice.

    Still having the odd tobacco rollie (just the one today) but looking to cut that way back soon.
