How much does an e-cigartte cost per month?Let’s do the maths to find out how much you can save compared to traditional cigarettes.
Among electronic cigarette users, two notable features are usually referred to.
The first is that this device avoids inhaling the hundreds of harmful substances produced by the combustion of traditional cigarettes; the second is that it is a tool that saves a lot of money every month.
But is this true?
Or is it just a publicity stunt to get more people to buy e-cigarettes and vape liquids?
This article will explain how things stand and show you, with figures to back it up, that there are savings to be made with an electronic cigarette.
Here is what you should know.
Electronic cigarette and monthly cost: how much is it?
To find out if you can save money by switching from an analogue to an electronic cigarette, you need to do some calculations, starting from the beginning.
First, you have to consider that, on average, the cost of a packet of cigarettes is around 5 euros. Therefore, a smoker who consumes a whole pack a day will spend about €150 a month.
To find out how much you could save by switching to vaping, you need to consider several aspects:
- the initial cost of the kit
- the need to replace any spare parts
- the average consumption of e-cigarette liquids.
If you look at specialist e-cigarette websites, you will realise that, at present, the cost of buying an e-cigarette kit starts at around €15 and can go up to a maximum of €50 or so.
You have to add to this amount the cost of spare parts.
Some components of an electronic cigarette are subject to wear and tear and will need to be replaced periodically. But don’t worry: they are very cheap.
For example, an atomiser or a cartridge kit costs about fifteen euros, and a battery about 20…
And now to vape liquids.
Currently, a 10 ml bottle of e-liquid costs about 5 or 6 euros, and a 30 ml bottle about 15 euros (the bigger the liquid package, the more the quantity-price ratio is convenient).
Usually, a 10 ml bottle of liquid lasts for a week, so in a month, the cost of refilling the e-cigarette is around 25-30 euros (if you want to be generous with the quantities).
Assuming that you have bought a 50 euro vape kit, that you have to buy many spare parts every month (still a total of 50 euro per month), and adding the cost of the liquids, you get a figure of about 80 euros.
In this example, we have used all the prices for the excess, but, as you can see, it is immediately obvious that switching from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes really pays off!
The amount you save per month starts from €70 upwards (€150—€80 = €70).
