Clarification of the average costs of vape liquids: convenience, differences and buying tips
If you have taken a look at the prices of e-cigarette liquids online and in shops in your town, you will have realised that the prices offered to vary depending on the brand, the seller and other factors.
So it is impossible to talk about the final cost of e-cigarette liquids!
However, amid this sea of proposals, you can make valuable considerations to save money and identify the best value for money products.
Are you also looking for the most convenient and high-performance vape liquids?
Well, then read on, because in this article you will find many tips and clarifications.
Let’s get started.
Liquids for e-cigarettes: average costs and monthly expenditure
Five, eight, ten, twelve… These are not Lotto numbers but the prices of e-cigarette liquids that you probably had to deal with when looking for a new vaping product.
Considering that there are e-cigarette liquids with nicotine, those without nicotine, and many different formats, it is easy to get confused and no longer understand which product is cheaper than another.
To help you with this, it is helpful to know that the most popular e-liquid format, the 10 ml, costs on average between 5 and 8 euros.
The 30 ml bottles cost an average of 12 to 16 euros, while the larger sizes usually have a better quantity-price ratio.
If you’ve spotted any products that are much cheaper than the prices we’ve given you, we recommend you be careful, because it’s likely that their cost is due to the fact that they’ve been produced with poor quality raw materials or that they don’t meet the standards.
It is now essential to understand how often you should buy a new bottle of e-liquid.
For example, how long does 10 ml of e-cigarette liquid last?
According to the testimonies of many vapers, we have estimated that a vape liquid bottle of this size lasts an average of 5 to 7 days. Therefore, in a month, you need to buy 4 to 6 bottles, which would cost around 25 to 36 euros.
However, if you buy larger bottles of liquid, you can save a lot of money in the long run.
For example, a 60 ml pack of e-cigarette liquid costs on average only 20 euros and also covers the needs for part of the following month.
And how much do DIY liquids cost?
We will tell you about this in the next paragraph.
DIY electronic cigarette liquid: is it worth it?
One of the most frequently asked questions by many new vapers is: “Is it better to buy ready-made vape liquids or the ingredients to make your own?”.
From a practical point of view, the best option is the former; from an economic point of view, the cheaper option is the latter.
Let’s find out why.
Mixing e-liquid base, liquid nicotine, and vape flavourings correctly takes a bit of practice.
It is not sure that you will obtain satisfactory liquids during the first few mixes.
Before you find the suitable ‘recipes’, you will have to make several attempts, which is why ready-made liquids are more practical: they are ready to use.
However, once you’ve got the hang of it, armed with measuring cups and syringes, you can make special liquids tailored to your needs, and at a super-cheap price!
The economic advantage of making your own liquids is that, in addition to the bottles of vape flavourings (which last a long time), you can buy a single large bottle of the neutral base to create many variations of vape liquid.
Usually, you buy the 1 litre or 500 ml e-cigarette base liquid, which is much cheaper than the smaller bottles.
If you have only recently got into vaping or perhaps have little spare time, however, you will probably prefer to buy ready-made vape liquids for the time being.
But, when buying, how can you tell whether you deal with cheap or overpriced products?
In the next paragraph, you will be able to view a brief overview of the costs of liquids from our online shop Terpy – products that are standard and made with high-quality raw materials – which will help you clarify this.
Cost of ready-made liquids for electronic cigarettes on Terpy
In the world of vaping products, as in so many other sectors, the larger the packaging, the cheaper it is.
However, leaving aside the question of quantity, before assessing whether one item is cheaper than another, it is necessary to check whether the product is up to standard and of high quality and its composition.
As you already know, there are liquids with or without nicotine; and those made with equal or different percentages of vegetable glycerine (VG) and propylene glycol (PG).
Liquids with a 50/50 (VG/PG) base usually cost less than those with a 70/30 (VG/PG) base. Also, the more nicotine there is, the more the price goes up.
So if you are looking for guidelines on how to shop for quality and convenience, feel free to look at the prices of our Terpy articles.
