Making Cents Out of Vaping
So how much can you actually save by switching from smoking to vaping? Below is a cost analysis to show the money saved when making the switch.
Example analysis for someone who smokes a pack a day:
$6.00 (cigarette pack cost) x 365 days a year = $2190/year or $183/month total cost of smoking
For E-Cigarettes, we have included the Starter Kit cost + Replacement Parts cost + eliquid.
For the starter kit, we used an above average Starter Kit ($40), a generous every other month atomizer replacement ($64/year). Batteries generally last 3 months which means you will need to purchase two more batteries during the year ($28/year). A 10ml bottle of eliquid will usually last a little longer than a week for someone who smokes a pack a day ($208 a year).
$40 (starter kit) + $64 (atomizer) + $28 (batteries) + $208 (eliquid) = $340/yearly or $28/monthly.
$2190 (smoking cost) - $340 (vaping cost) = $1850 savings annually
$183 (smoking cost) - $28 (vaping cost) = $155 savings monthly
Note: Although many vapers will agree that these figures are accurate, there are too many variables to arrive at an exact calculation.
