One of the reasons our customers give us for quitting smoking is not only to improve their health, but also how much the habit costs them. It’s no secret that ciggies are expensive, with a packet of 20 costing around £9, and if you’ve got a pack a day habit then you can see how the cost quickly mounts up.
So is vaping cheaper than smoking? We regularly get asked by our customers “how much does vaping cost long term?”
Vaping is considerably cheaper than smoking, however it does depend on a few things (your device, quality of your juice, how often you are vaping), but if you are just puffing the times when you usually would have had a cigarette then a good 10ml juice should be equivalent to approximately 180 cigs, or 9 packets!
A 10ml juice for vaping costs around £5, or you can get deals where there are 3 for £10, 3 for £12. So if you were getting through max 2 bottles of juice a week then that’s £10 (or less) on liquid.
When you’re looking into the cost of vaping you need to consider the device you buy. If you’re trying to keep costs low while you quit the cigs then have a look for a device that is cheap to maintain. For example, the eleaf iCare is a starter kit that packs a punch and has super cheap coils. Alternatively the Innokin Endura T18-E is a high quality, durable, step-up on a starter kit for those trying to kick the habit.
Basic starter kit prices start at £10. However, if you want to save money in the long run then invest in a pen with coils. They last longer so you won’t have to keep buying those disposable tops.
If you’re seriously thinking about switching then chances are you’re wondering "how much does vaping cost?" or is it going to be worth it? Here’s a breakdown of the investment I made when I started vaping:
- A device (The Innokin Endura T18-E Starter Kit £29.99)
- A juice (Red rocket at £5)
- Coils (T18-E Prism coils 5 for £12)
Total for this lot from Vape and Juice was £46.99 (I got 10% off with the discount code WELCOME10 which you can use too!)
I was previously spending £27 a week (or more if I had a night out!). Now I get a juice each week for £5 and a coil once a month.
If you’re spending £30 pound a week on smokes then you’ll start saving money by the second week of vaping!Are you convinced that vaping costs less than smoking? Drop in to one of our stores, or visit our starter kits page to see what will be best for you.
