How Much Does it Cost to Start Vaping?

Are you interested in vaping, but unsure of the impact it’ll have on your budget? Are you in the process of calculating the cost savings of vaping vs. traditional cigarettes?

There is no easy answer to the question of how much it costs to start vaping. Here’s why: no two people are in the exact same position.

For example, one person may already have a vaping device and is only in the market for e-juice. Another person, however, may find themselves purchasing everything they need to get started.

Is Vaping Cheaper than Cigarettes?

While the price of smoking cigarettes varies from one state to the next, most people, regardless of location, find that vaping is more cost effective.

For example, if the average cost of a pack of cigarettes is $10 in your state, a pack a day smoker will spend approximately $300/month. Over the course of a year, this works out to approximately $3,600.

Generally speaking, e-juice costs approximately 50 to 75 percent less than traditional cigarettes, thus saving you hundreds of dollars or more each year.

So, What Does Vaping Cost?

This varies based on a variety of factors, including the type of product you’re buying, the quality of the product you’re buying, and where you’re making your purchase.

For example, a high quality vape pen can set you back $50 to $100. Conversely, you can purchase disposable vapes online for $3 to $5.  

What you buy and how much you spend depends largely on your budget and the type of experience you’re seeking.

In addition to a vaping device, other expenses pop up every now and again. For example, replacement coils are necessary if you want your device to continue to provide a top-notch experience.

Vape juice is another expense to work into your budget. Some people find one flavor they enjoy and stick with it. Others, however, jump from flavor to flavor to keep their experience fresh.

For comparison’s sake, our popular Virginia Tobacco e-juice costs $22 for a 30ml bottle.

The more you vape the easier it is to understand how much you’ll spend each month.

How to Save Money

There are many ways to save money on vaping, such as:

  • Shop online for the best deals on devices and e-juice
  • Search for older devices that are often sold at a discount
  • Compare brands, as the most well known names aren’t always the best

Final Thoughts

So, there you have it. This should give you a better idea of how much it costs to start vaping.

As you learn more about the industry and make a few purchases, you’ll gather additional information that can help you save.
