E-cigs, do they really cost more? In this blog post I will be discussing the cost of E-cigs compared to normal cigarettes, you’ll be surprised what I discovered.
The basic e-cig will set you back £7 for the equivalent of 40 cigarettes, or 400 puffs. If we now take into account the cost for the same amount in normal cigarettes it will be around £15 approx. As we look at these numbers, it is clear that it would give you 50% more just using an e-cig.
Let’s look at and discuss another e-cig option. An e-cig starter kit can range from £10 to £40 this will depend on the brand you choose, but for the purpose of this argument I will be using the Vype ePen as an example.
The Vype ePen starter kit starts from £14.99 and in that you get two cartridges, which is equivalent to 2,000 puffs or 200 cigarettes. Compare this to the example above, you will get 5x more using a Vype even, which 1600 puffs or 160 cigarettes more, bargain!
I went to the extreme earlier and compared 400 normal cigarettes in cost to the cost of e-cig refills with Vype.
On the British high street 400 cigarettes will cost £250 approx. While the equivalent in cartridges for Vype will be around £7. If we divide those two figures, 250 ÷ 7 = 35 (ish). In each Vype ePen cartridge there’s 1080 puffs or 100 cigarettes approx, and in each pack for £7 there’s three cartridges (300 cigarettes.)
Now, here’s the math. 35 x 300 = 10,500. This is 10,500 cigarettes or 1,050,000 puffs. You would get 10,100 cigarettes more just using a Vype ePen refills for the equivalent cost of 400 cigarettes, mind blown!
In conclusion, the math speaks for itself, and appears to be more cost effective using a Vype ePen.
This took me a few hours to calculate and all costs are correct apon posting this blog.
