Before anyone can start making any serious recommendations you first need to find where your preferences are as far as flavors, nicotine level which can have a bearing on how flavors taste as well as how warm vapor can be at times. Some won't like anything over 10 watts while others will go with high wattage mods. Some prefer mechanical over regulated mods. Some end up DIYing(Do It Yourself) their own eliquids as some here do.

Some will tend to stay with cig sized batteries while others usually most will move onto eGo type 3.7v batteries or VV, VV/VW(VV=Variable Voltage, VW=Wattage) batteries or mods. Here over the last 2 1/2yrs. I have given quite a few things a good look over and established what works here including the latest tanks and mods. That came about from sampling flavors for one eliquids vendor who is rated one of the top ten in the US. For most however time and your budget will play a large role.

Nah, never smoked, just like to see my friends giving up smoking, even if they geek out on equipment

Couldn't agree with that sentiment any more then stated! A Guy Unfortunately despite introducing some friends at this end to vaping they would still rather cling to the nasty stuff!

Here I didn't actually "geek out" on vaping gear but made some serious investments based on experience once the improvements were coming about compared to what I had started off with. I might even consider getting a pair of tanks, having been one of the main drawbacks early on, Innokin is now coming out with in the sub ohm dept. as well as the other high wattage tank rated for 60-70w just coming out lately. Otherwise the gear I have now should last for some time to come. New iSub Sub-Ohm Tank from Innokin - multiple versions; the iSub, iSub-G, and iSub Pro

Interesting NightHawk, Innokin has always been very good quality in my opinion. May try the iSub one day.

Precisely! I thought people should know about this one. The Eleaf tanks on the other hand proved to be cheapo made.

I wasn't expecting much from iSmoka with those however and have been considering the Horizon Artic since Horizon seems to have a good rep. One other to note is nothing further has been heard on the Scion Quad Core. That one seemed to have been drowned out by the Aspire Artic and Kanger sub ohm tanks in a hurry.

The new iSub tanks if anything like the other two will have the advantage of the larger 4ml capacity you generally expect to see from a tank not the 2ml the Artic comes with in want of a large replacement. If the coils and AFC are anywhere near what the Aspire tanks are it will likely take a lead. We'll see.

One thing I could add here which could prove to be quite helpful for HJake would be some practical information on how to go about picking and choosing things like hardwares when first starting out. As I mentioned before the options seen now have greatly improved since I first started out back in Sept. '12. How To Buy Your First Vape Mod

No cigs for a 4 days aided by vaping and I can feel a difference. I breathe better already and have shed some edgy anxiety cigarettes somehow gave me. No weight gain either. Everything is better except the budget which should invert shortly. I went with a kbox. It gets the job done, though one battery is not enough to get me through the day. The subtank mini works great. No leaks, great flavor and no more cigarettes. Vaping kind of reminds me of pipe smoking without the dragon tongue.

The mod landscape seems very beta like. Thirty day warranties and pricing on par with a nice medium level smart phone at only a fraction of the tech. How long do these mods last? The way I'm vaping now, it appears I need a 2 cell mod to get through a day without a power boost. More digging...

Wait until you get past the initial 4 months without smoke and then see how much better you breathe! When the tightness in the chest eases way off as well as no longer getting any burnt taste in the mouth you'll know.

The KBox should work out for you at least for the time being especially if that is anything like the Kanger version seen at Kangertech KBOX 40W 18650 Mod

Here I have a few mods that take a single 18650 and run the Panasonic High Drain 3100mah batteries in those. You can either leave the battery in each and charge it there with the cord provided or remove it to charge separately. The ICig V9, Luxyoun 150w wooden box mod, and DovPo 30w "Indestructable" vinyl cased see the batteries left in them. After 2 1/2yrs. with cig alikes including a few disposables, Vamo APVs, eGo batteries, etc. lately the Eleaf iStick 50w 4400mah sealed battery type box mod has been seeing the most use however.

The others will have tanks set up with differing flavors for the quick switch over just for a change of pace at times or for the after dinner variation. You may find that as you go along you will start collecting more gear as well as see the need for more tanks. The 4400mah battery lasts much longer however when placed up against the usual for 18650, 26650 batteries. The longest time is with the 5000mah 18650s I have run across while you wouldn't want those for anything over a 3-15w APV like a Vamo or SMOK ACE since they won't handle too heavy a draw.

Durable longer battery mods include the iStick 50w 4400 mentioned as well as the Innokin MVP2.0 6-11w, MVP 20w(7-20w), just out MVP 3.0 30w all three seeing 2600mah sealed batteries. The SMOK Groove II was a flop tried out here being 3-16w mode with a 3800mah sealed battery but cheap plastic casing and ended up a very short lived mod before grabbing the Innokin heavy weight Titanium/Stainless 3-15w box mod that takes a single Flat Head not Button Top 18650. Reliable as anything can be since Innokin stuff is durable but did find some Panasonic 3400mah Flat Top 18650s. That barely fires an Aspire Atlantis sub ohm tank when all the way up at 15watts.

Actual life spans of mods depend mainly on how any mod is used. With the 20w 2200mah original Eleaf iStick by iSmoka people were stripping out the aluminum threading in a hurry and had fire buttons rattling while none of that was seen here having used the 510/eGo adapter and even adding on the Bending Adapter allowing you to fold up the small tank attached for carrying around in a pocket. The sealed batteries often go sooner from constant recharging where the entire mod has to be replaced while many stay with the replaceable 18650 type for either box mod or APV Vamo style. You have to figure which will work for you the best however since the market is now loaded with either of those types as well as having plenty of mechanical mods. Many who rebuild atomizers, RBA, RDAs, etc. will favor mechs over regulated.

All that information is going to keep me busy Night Hawk, thanks.

The Kbox uses the 18650 so I am limited to this cell spec in another box for practical, interchangeable use. Batteries also bear serious safety consideration. In my many years experience working with electronic hardware, the only Class C (electrical) fires I've witnessed were caused by batteries. So with safety in mind I charge cells in a stand alone, engineered charger. After some of the material I've read on the electronics built into certain boxes, I think I'll pass on usb charging.

The Panasonic 18650 is a solid performing cell. I wonder if a 5000mah 18650 is even possible. I saw another brand claiming 6000mah in a 18650. I found a 18650 battery comparator online. The author does extensive testing on chargers and other batteries also.

I think I will look into mech boxes while regulated boxes mature.

The Kbox is interesting. But the one thing I really don't like is that its not really adjustable.

I mean you go from a 12W setting to a 20W setting. But 12 may be too little and 20s too much. In general the presets arent bad. but sometimes you need something in between.

In regards to batteries, unless your using a device/build that requires a lot of Amps it doesnt make a big difference.
But for those that do, or to play if safe, the Panasonic,Sonys are a good choice. I think LG has one too thats really good.

Ive been using the Segelei 100W Plus Box Mod and its not bad at all. Runs on 2 Panny18650s.
Batteries last a long time, maybe 2 days between charging, with typical build of 1.2-1.4 Ohm or so.
And with Sub Ohm/higher wattage builds little over a day.

Overall I like it.
