As an experienced vaper, I hear all the time that to get any decent gear, you must first part with an entire pay check and sign a document handing over eternal ownership of your first-born child. If you are the type of person who needs to own the very latest, greatest, most powerful device currently on the market the very day it is released, vaping can become an expensive pass time. For the rest of us who maintain our sanity and use vaping as a tool for smoking cessation, if you know where to look, the soul of your unborn children can be saved. If you are looking for a great setup without taking out a second mortgage on your house, you are in the right place.

Innokin is well-known within the industry for producing high quality devices that will stand the test of time. Standing separately from the highly successful MVP series, the Cool Fires have been stalwart in their own right. The Cool Fire 4 puts out 3 – 7.5 volts (maximum 14.5 Amps) running from 6 – 40 Watts. It has been adapted to look and feel like many of its competitors on the market, made from zinc alloy, it is light weight and sleek. Running coils from 0.2 – 3.1 Ω, the 2000 mAh built-in battery pack will keep you vaping for hours. It comes with 3 easy to use function switches, a super bright OLED screen that has the ability to flip orientation as well as some other cool features. It has a built-in vape timer, puff counter and integrated short-circuit protection to keep you, and your mod safe. If that wasn’t a deal in itself for less than $50, it also comes with an Innokin iSub Tank System. The tank uses a 0.5Ω coil that integrates a no-spill swap system. This 4ml capacity tank is constructed from stainless steel and has 12mm adjustable airflow slots. This system will allow you to find the perfect balance of flavor and cloud production each and every time for less money than some would charge you for a Sub Ohm tank.

KangerTech started the Sub Ohm package deal game, and they keep moving the goal posts. The Kanger Subox Nano kit will keep you happy for a long time for several reasons. This is an updated scaled down version of their Kbox design, something which has become the focus of many who are getting into vaping rather than the starter kits of yester-year. This stylish, simplistic device runs on a single 18650 battery. You can charge the battery on board with the usb charging port or carry a spare so that you can keep vaping on the go. It will run from 7 – 50 watts on any coil over 0.3 Ω, but as the kit comes equipped with 2 OCC coils you will be set for a while. The tank portion of this mini beast is color coordinated with its base and has a Pyrex tube and 510 Delrin drip tip. If you ever get bored and want to try something slightly different, you can use the RBA that comes in the pack to build your own coil. The adjustable airflow system in this tank once again allows for the perfect balance of flavor and cloud for any vaper.

For those who feel that even the Subox Nano is a little too big, with to many buttons to play with, the SubVod Starter kit is a deceptively simple device. An all in one 1300 mAh battery pack is built into this base unit, looking almost like a mechanical tube mod, but never judge a book by its cover. It automatically adjusts itself to give you the best vaping experience based on the coil you put on top, Which in this case is the Stainless steel organic cotton coils nestled in the bottom of the SubTank Nano S. This tank boasts a 1.9 ml e-liquid capacity, so while it may not be the largest on the market, it is highly portable. You will never have to worry about accidentally scorching your coils because this device has an automatic 10 second cut of feature.

The coils are USA standard kanthal and the tank supports a unique anti leak design. To charge the beast, it is as simple as attaching it to a usb charger and letting it do its thing.
