Is vaping expensive? July 09 2018, 0 Comments
Smoking is expensive, and in comparison vaping isn’t.
Let’s talk numbers.
If you smoke 20 a day in the UK then you will be spending about £11 a day on smokes. Over the course of a year this adds up to £4100, maybe more if you find you smoke more on holiday and nights out.
That’s quite a cost. Vaping isn’t expensive when compared to spending £4k + a year. You would be able to achieve the same nicotine delivery in a couple of bottles of juice a week, priced at say £6 for two bottles would be £312 a year. You will then need a one off cost of a device at between £30-60, coils and replacement coils every 2 weeks would be around £50 bringing your total cost per year to under £400.00
Vaping can be expensive if you burn out your coils and waste them, or if you don’t store your juice correctly and find you have to buy more to replace it. If you take care of your coils, device and e-juice then there is no reason why you should spend more than £400 a year all in.
Vaping is also as expensive as you want to make it. You can get juices that cost around £3 a 10ml bottle then higher end juices which can go up to £20. You will find some good deals on e-juice, such as 3 for £10 (like our Jack the Dripper range) and options to buy higher end brands in packs of 3.
Your device can cost more than £60, depending on what you want from it and how much you’d like to customise your vape. If you are looking for a basic pen style device then you will keep costs down. Higher end devices usually provide you with a screen of information including puff count, wattage, battery life, sleep mode and even games. These devices come with a higher price tag, but if you are just starting out then you may be best suited to a more basic device.
Vaping requires an initial investment of a device, few juices and a spare coil or two, after that you will only need to buy juice probably each week, depending on how much you vape, and replace your coil every 2-3 weeks.
