A starter kit includes everything you need to enjoy vaping.
AmericaneLiquidStore.com offers a wide range of starter kits... From the least expensive possible, simple combination of a battery and cartomizer pre-filled with flavorful, made-in-USA eLiquid to the most advanced kit you could desire, our Double Clearomizer Starter kit including a full 30 mL of eLiquid (that's equal to 30 packs of cigarettes).
This video covers the Durasmoke Double Clearo Starter Kit from AmericaneLiquidStore.com, but the concepts shown apply to most kits. See What's Included, Features, How to Use, How to Re-Fill, How to Charge, Why this Kit is the Best Value in Electronic Cigarette Starter Kits on the Market.
For details on each kit, see it's individual product page. Here are common questions that apply to all kits.
Well, that depends partly on you, and partly on which part of the kit you are talking about:
For the electronic parts, like batteries, chargers, cables, etc… we like to tell people to think of them a lot like they think of their cell phones or other devices they use daily. For example, batteries will need to be charged about every 7 days, and after a couple of years of regular use/charging, they will lose a bit of capacity.
For the clearomizers, think of them as more like a light bulb, since they contain the heating element / filament, they take a bit more abuse. And like light bulbs, some will last a very long time, and some will burn out faster. Typically, they will last a month or more, and replacements are available inexpensively.
For the eLiquid, each mL is about equal to a full pack of cigarettes, so the 30 mL bottle included in the kit will last a pack-a-day smoker about a month.
For people new to vaping, and that’s who starter kits are for, we strongly recommend starting with a nicotine level about equal to regular cigarettes, so that’s what we’ll send you. The nicotine level is 2.4%. Our reasoning is that you’ll know what level of nicotine “feels right”. If you don’t get enough from an electronic cigarette, such as by starting with a lower nicotine level, you won’t be satisfied, and will be more apt to go back to regular cigarettes.
We like to tell people to think of the batteries a lot like they think of the batteries in their cell phones or other devices they use daily. With average use, these batteries will need to be charged about every 7 days, and after a couple of years of regular use/charging, they will lose a bit of capacity, but still work.
There are 3 basic parts/functions common to all eCigs:
A power source / battery
A heating element (part of the clearomizer)
The way they work is simple. Power in the battery heats the heating element. The heating element heats the eLiquid, which makes the vapor.
The batteries in the Durasmoke Double Clearomizer kit do have an on/off. If they are off, you turn them on by pressing the on/off button 5 times within 2 second. If they are on, you turn them off the same way, by pressing the on/off button 5 times within 2 second. Personally, unless you are carrying the electronic cigarette un-cased in a pocket or purse, we don’t usually bother turning them off. They do ship off, so you will need to turn it on at least once.
Our DuraSmoke electronic cigarettes are an unbelievably great deal, and can save you hundreds of dollars a month!
Let’s compare the price of this kit and future refills vs. the cost of traditional cigarettes. Depending on where you are in the country, a pack of cigarettes range in costs from tobacco-friendly places like Viginia and Kentucky ($4) to tobacco-unfriendly places like New York or Detroit ($15). So for this comparison let’s say you live in an average-cost state like our location, Wisconsin, where a pack of cigarettes costs about $8. If you are a pack-a-day smoker, that translates to a monthly cost of $240.
Now let’s look at your initial Month 1, when you buy this starter kit. The kit will cost you $66.98, and includes the equivalent of 30 packs of cigarettes. So in Month 1, you’ll save $173.02!
In Months 2 – 12, with the assumption that the battery and other parts of the kit wear out in a year, all you need to purchase is one 30 mL bottle of your favorite eLiquid, for a total monthly cost of only $16.99. So in Months 2 – 12, you’ll save $223.01/month!
Who can’t use another $200/month or so?

That is the real beauty of the clearomizer, and why “clear” is in the name! You can see right into the eLiquid tank of each clearomizer, so you can see when it’s getting empty. Each clearomizer also holds a full 1.6 mL of eLiquid, equal to 1.6 packs of cigarettes. And, if you are going out for the evening and the tank is getting low, you can just top it off before you go.
While they are very easy to take care of, eCigs, like any electronic device, will last longer if you take care of them, including:
Charging the battery regularly
