I've now been 100% free for a full 2yrs. having only seen 4 loose packs at the end of June 2013 when someone close got seriously ill as well as earlier in May after the initial go totally without for a full month following the New Year res deadline of 3/30/13 which had seen the end of the last full carton! By then I was already! down to only 3 packs a week where the upgrade of out cig look alikes to the firs Vamo in January followed by eGo-C Twist VV batteries in a starter kit lead onto gradually getting into better tanks!
With the sub ohm tanks out at this time and the higher wattage mods as well as improvements in compact box mods like iSticks $25-$30 for a good tank and right in the range of $40-$60 for a max price will put you into a good 30-50w even 60-65w mod! In fact the new iStick 40w with temp control now being seen on 2015 mods is available for only $30!
The important thing about these newer products is not simply watts or how much some new tanks will run at but how the vaping experience will go from long puffs to get little vapor to feeling equivalent in some ways to how it felt being a moderate to heavy smoker. The experience will tend to grow on you more so over a lot of the older CE2-CE4 stuff! And that doesn't just imply cloud making but getting more out of the gear when you put the right stuff as far as e-liquids in!
