E-Cigs Will Save You Money
There are many reasons why smokers have switched over to electronic cigarettes and chief among them are for health and finance. Electronic cigarettes are battery operated devices that heat a liquid solution which creates vapor that users inhale. The liquid solution is usually flavored and upon user’s choice, can also contain nicotine. Compared to tobacco cigarettes which creates smoke, ash, and tar – all elements that causes health complications – electronic cigarettes are pretty much harmless. Smokers that switched over to electronic cigarettes for a few weeks, then tried to smoke a traditional cigarette have said that the cigarette tasted like crap to them. And it’s not surprising when tobacco taste like earth and e-cigs can taste like anything delicious – vanilla, mango, mint, cherry, you name it. Though there isn’t conclusive evidence that e-cigs are safe, many smokers believe that e-cigs are lesser risk alternatives. Our employees that used to smoke say that e-cigs have made it easier for them to breathe, have freshened their breath, and have eliminated the smell of smoke in their clothing.
But here’s one conclusive facts about e-cigs: they will definitely save you money. Let’s make a comparison between smoking and vaping. A pack-a-day smoker can spend anywhere from $1,500 a year in a low-tax state to $5,000 a year in a high-tax state. New York City is a high-tax state where a pack of cigarettes can cost up to $13. If we take the average across the United States, the cost is around $2,300 a year. Now most disposable electronic cigarettes are equivalent of two packs of traditional cigarettes. A single disposable can cost $6 to $10 per piece. The average vaper will spend about $1,100 to $1,800 a year on disposables. The savings increase when vapers solely use rechargeable e-cigs. Initial investment for a rechargeable kit ranges between $10 to $35 and cartridges on average cost $2.50 per piece. On a national average, vapers save almost $1,800 a year.
