All About Vaping
How Much Does It Cost to Vape?
This is a good question. Some claim that you can save thousands of dollars per year by vaping instead of smoking cigarettes. So how does it work out?
To start vaping, you’ll need to invest in some equipment: a vaporizer or electronic cigarette, a couple of atomizers (tanks that hold the liquid) and a charger. A basic setup, which often come bundled as a kit and comes with a handy carrying case, can be had for as little as $30. Most high-quality vaping starter kits are in the $40 to $80 range.
After purchasing your equipment, you’ll want to buy a few bottles of e-liquid (or juice, as we call it). A 15mL bottle of juice, the equivalent of a carton of cigarettes, costs $10 – $15. Compare this to spending $70 to $125 on a carton of cigarettes and you’ll see how you can save alot of money by vaping instead of smoking cigarettes.
The ongoing cost of vaping is very low compared to smoking, too. A pack-a-day smoker spends about $185 each month on cigarettes. A former pack-a-day smoker will use about 35mL to 45mL of juice in a month’s time, costing significantly less at only $30-$45 a month.
Using these numbers and factoring in a few additional equipment purchases, the average vaper spends $400 to $600 per year on vaping. Compare this to a pack-a-day smoker, who on average spends $2300 annually on cigarettes and lighters. It’s simple: vaping saves about $150 PER MONTH versus smoking cigarettes. This adds up to nearly $1800 in savings each year when you quit smoking and vape your way to a healthier, more cost-effective lifestyle.
