There might come a time when you start to think about upgrading your starter kit. Maybe it just isn’t cutting it. Or maybe you’ve seen your mate has got a beast of a cloud machine. You want some of that action too. When you first get started vaping you will probably purchase something pretty basic. However, as you evolve as a vaper your needs might change. You might know more about what you like and what you don't. In this blog, we will share tips for upgrading your starter kit. 

Do you like high nicotine?

If you are still using quite a high nicotine content then you’ll probably be best off with a device which suits this. You can use nic salts in pod kits, such as the SMOK Nord or Lost Vape.

However, if you are just looking for 12 or 18mg then you should select a device that is good for high PG juices. If you use PG in a device with lots of air holes then it is likely to leak.  Check out our devices which are good for PG here.

Which liquids do you like?

If you are into high VG juices then you will want to select a device based on that. We suggest that you opt for a direct to lung device. These are the bigger box mods or thicker stick kits.

For example, a device which works well with high VG would be SMOK X Priv kit.

This device is mouth to lung and has adjustable airflow and watts. It comes in a few different colourways and looks pretty smart. 

Are you into clouds and tricks?

If you are into tricks and huge clouds then you will want to upgrade your starter kit for a sub-ohm vape kit. You will also want something with adjustable airflow and power.

Having control of your device will help you to enhance your cloud. If you are getting really into vaping then you might even consider building your own coils.

Have a look at the Vapresso Revenger for big cloud.

Do you like gadgets?


If you like gadgets then your upgraded starter kit will probably be something with lots of buttons. You will probably like a screen with the ability to make adjustments.

On some of the kits, you can even play games. These techie devices will be able to be kept up to date using computer software.

Check out the SMOK G Priv Kit Luxe Edition.

Are you just looking for a few new features?


If you are happy with the mouth to lung device, but just want to make a few adjustments to wattage and airflow then you might like the X30 Rover.

This is still a basic kit. However you can see the battery life, watts and coil resistance on the LED screen.

When you are upgrading your starter kit you will want to make sure you know all the reasons why you are looking to upgrade. Once you know the reasons you will be able to make a good choice.
