The new and improved Chimp! This kit includes 1x 1000mAh Kanger Evod VV (twist style), 1x 400mA 510-USB charging cable, 1x Kanger Mini Protank 2 (replaceable drip tip, glass body, 1x 1.8ohm replacement heads), and my own special touch, a debridged 306 dripping atomizer+tip for taste testing juices. This is, without a doubt, one of the best offerings on the market for a new vaper. It has everything you need but the juice and no extra bells and whistles which makes it a great value for those just wanting to see if this whole vaping thing is for them. Below are some details on the changes from the original kit.

I've started stocking the Kanger Evod VV batteries. Basically these are Kanger's take on the Ego Twist classic. The form factor is a little different and the build quality is amazing. Here are some of the differences:

1. Button is almost flush with the body instead of being a hard plastic 'nipple' type button. It has an illuminating ring around the button itself to let you know if it's firing.
2. It is slightly longer than the classic Ego Twist, however, I've disassembled a couple and it looks like that extra space is being taken up by a more robust set of components inside.
3. The switch assembly is not a separate piece that's just press fit into the metal tube, so this is much less likely to get popped apart in your pocket (I'd still be careful though!)
4. The 'twist' on the bottom is much more durable feeling. It's snug but not too tight and it's very clearly marked with voltage levels.
5. The charger is a 400mA charger as opposed to the normal 240mA that comes with most Ego style Twists, this means faster charging!

Also changing in this kit is the Mini Protank 2 instead of the Evod. I feel the Evod is still a great, all around clearomizer, but the last thing a new user needs to worry about, or be getting warned about, is tank killer juice. It can be a little scary for a brand new vaper to be told "Oh, don't put that liquid in your tank, it'll melt it... but, don't worry, totally safe to inhale!" explaining all that can be a challenge. So... I'm taking that risk out of the equation and including the new Mini Protank 2 with my kits. These have glass tanks, replaceable drip tips, and come with 1 head.

The video below is still 'mostly' accurate, I'll be updating it soon.

Great starter kit. December 20, 2014
Reviewer: Yeti from Tejas  
This is my first kit, not counting the blu for obvious reasons.

This kit is great, it's one of the few I've found that includes the Kanger Mini Protank 2, which was something I knew I wanted. I didn't want to worry about certain juices ruining my tank, so having glass was a requirement.

The battery lasts me a full day, that might change depending on usage.. but it lasted more than a full tank load, so that worked out nice.

It's a bit too big to stick in the pocket, so I'll be looking for something else to take with me when I go out, but this is fantastic for use at home.

I felt that the price was great in comparison to what I found on other sites, considering it had the Kanger MP2.

When they come back in stock I may get another of these kits so I'll have redundant batteries and tanks.. making flavor changes easy.

Oh, and the bonus taste testing tip was a welcome addition!

Arrived quickly, and I'm very pleased.

Good product but no instructions! December 12, 2014
Reviewer: Christine H. from Nashville, TN United States  
I am brand new to vaping, and this kit was recommended to me as a good starter. It looks and feels good quality, but there were ZERO instructions with the kit, which was really annoying. I'm a techie, so I was able to research and watch videos on YouTube, as another reviewer also did, to understand how it worked. However, if I had given the unit to my Mom, there's no way she would have known what to do. In my opinion, that's a MAJOR flaw in a "beginner's kit". Instructions on cleaning, maintenance and replacing the coil would also be good. To use it, you must quickly click the button 5x to turn it on or off. Click it 5x fast, then pause and click once more. If the ring lights up on the 6th click, the unit is on. If it does not, the unit is off.

No instructions November 17, 2014
Reviewer: Libby Cowgill from Columbia, MO United States  
It seems like a good little vape, once I got it working. But since it is marketed as a "starter kit," wouldn't it be nice if it came with instructions?  Never having used a vape before, I figured out how to fill it via youtube, but how on earth was I supposed to know you had to press the button five times to "unlock" the battery?  I contacted customer service and got nothing.  The video the is supposed to be on this page isn't here.  I thought this thing was worthless for a week.

If this is as good as it gets, I'm very satisfied February 17, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Vienna, VA United States  
I vaped over a year ago, wasn't impressed.  I decided to give it another go, and picked this kit up per recommendation.  I totally love this thing.  I'm not into the big jumbo mods out there, and this is a sleek slim package that gives a real good vape and lasts all day.

Best price for the best starter kit December 9, 2013
Reviewer: zdawg from Portland, OR United States  
I did a lot of research into other sites, and as far as a basic setup is concerned, this pack is far and beyond the best. The equipment is absolutely solid.

What really sells it is the inclusion of a tasting atomizer - this is especially key if you're just starting to vape, or are always trying out new flavors.
