Many people are interested in the total price of e cigarette smoking, or commonly referred to as “vaping.”
When you smoke real cigarettes, you have to buy packs of cigarettes or cartons. In Washington state, 1 pack of cigarettes can cost up to $10 per pack. If you smoke 1 pack per day, that would run you $300 per month.
What about e-cigarette smoking? How much will that cost?
Start up cost: To begin your e-cigarette adventure, you will need a starter kit, some spare parts, and some e-liquid. This should cost around $100.
Ongoing monthly cost: Just like smoking real cigarettes, there are ongoing costs associate with e-smoking (vaping). Expect to replace 2 atomizers per month, 1 battery, and go through about 2 ounces (60ml) of e-liquid per month. The total cost of this is around $30-$50 per month.
Real cigarettes: $300 per month.
e-Cigarettes: $50 per month.
The savings are substantial. Most e-cig users save 50-75% as compared to tobacco smoking.
