This kit comes with everything you need to start "Vaping" except for a bottle of E-Liquid.

When choosing between the Manual and Automatic kits it is important to know that the Automatic batteries use the pressure created when you inhale to activate the atomizer. This means there will be a slight delay when you first inhale. For those with respiratory issues such as COPD, Asthma, or just decreased lung capacity the Manual unit may be the way to go. With the Manual unit you simply press a button to active the atomizer and vaporize the E-Liquid, inhale, then the button go when you’re done.

Many of are customers find they receive a deeper and more satisfying puff with the Manual unit. However, Many customers find the Automatic to be more like a traditional cigarette because they simply puff with out hitting a button.
