If you are new to electronic cigarettes you may be concerned about the cost. The start up cost can be intimidating but when you crunch the numbers you will find that e-cigs are a great choice and can save you a lot of money versus analogs.
The average cost for a pack of cigarettes in the US is right around 7 bucks. The average smoker smokes a pack per day which means in a year they will spend about $2,550. If you smoke two packs per day that number doubles!
The cost of electronic cigarettes is a little more complicated to figure out. First you need to buy an electronic cigarette or a starter kit. Starter kits range from 50-150 bucks so we will go with the average at about 100 dollars for a starter kit. Atomizers need to be replaced and can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks but we will go with the lower end of 2 weeks. At about 6 dollars apiece you will need 26 per year costing you $156. You also have to add in the e-liquid. It can be challenging to figure out how much e-liquid you need in a year but if you use 2ml’s each day you will need 730 ml a year or 25 30ml bottles. That will run you around 450 bucks per year. All together you have the $100 starter kit, $156 for atomizers and $450 for the e-liquid. This comes out to a grand total of $706.
When you look at the numbers it’s obvious which is a more economical choice.
