Cheapest E Cig Starter Kits
What is the Best Cheap E Cig Starter Kit?
One of the main reasons that many people opt for e cigs over regular tobacco cigarettes is the price savings. Because of this, they tend to look for a cheap e cig starter kit instead of looking at total quality or the big picture. E cigs can be really cheap, and they can save you a lot of money in the long run compared with regular tobacco cigarettes. There are definitely differences in prices between disposable e cig starter kits and refillable e cig starter kits that you should be aware of if you’re price comparing between the two and deciding which to go with.
Disposable E Cig Starter Kits
Disposable e cig starter kits typically run you between $30 and $40 for 4-5 disposable e cigs.
Depending on your brand, you are going to be paying between $6 and $10 per disposable e cig. That e cig is going to last you about 400 puffs before you have to throw it away and get out a new one. There are no parts that you buy permanently, so you can’t make a one-time investment and then enjoy it for a long time afterwards. On the other hand, some customers find it worth the continuing cost to not have to do any maintenance or upkeep, and instead just get out a new e cig whenever the old one runs out.
Re-Fillable E Cig Starter Kits
Re-fillable e cig starter kits will cost you around $30 for a starter kit, and you will get 1 or 2 e cigs in the kit, depending on what brand you get.
So your cost per individual re-fillable e cig is going to be between $15 and $30 per e cig. This is a bit more than the cost per disposable e cig, but you can also use it for a much longer time. You refill your e cig with e juice from a bottle that you can buy from Slim Vape Pen for about $10, and at that rate it will cost you about $2 in e juice for the same 400 puffs that the disposable e cig gives you. Your atomizer coil will also wear out eventually and need to be replaced, though the number of puffs you can get with one atomizer coil is going to depend on the care you take of it. Replacement Atomizer Coils cost about $2 per coil, and you can buy them in packs of 5 at Slim Vape Pen. You can estimate a cost of about 20 cents per 400 puffs in wear and tear on your atomizer coil. Wear and tear on your battery is going to be a negligible cost because you can usually count on your battery lasting 6 months to a year before it starts to lose charge too quickly and charge ineffectively. So with a re-fillable e cig starter kit you are looking at about $2.20 in continuing costs per 400 puffs, as opposed to the $6-$10 you would be paying for disposable e cigs.
Up-front costs versus continuing costs
Cheap Refillable E Cig Costs
- Refillable e cig starter kit: $30
- Refillable e cig starter kit Monthly: $40
Cheap Disposable E Cig Costs
- Disposable e cig starter kit: $20
- Disposable e cig starter kit Monthly: $50-60
Refillable e cig starter kits have a higher up front cost than disposable e cigs. At Slim Vape Pen you will pay around $30 for a refillable e cig starter kit, which includes your pen (or pens, depending on your brand and the kit you choose), charger, wall adaptor, carrying case, and a free bottle of e juice to get you started. That is the cost of 3-5 disposable e cigs, depending on brand. However, in continuing costs you are only paying about $2.20 for the same number of puffs you get on a disposable e cig. So when you factor in the up-front cost, the refillable e cig has still paid for itself by the time you have refilled it 4-6 times, and after that it is saving you tons of money compared with disposable e cigs.
Which one is best for getting started?
Many people start off with disposable e cigs to see if they like them, and then move on to refillable e cigs once they see the benefits. This is not the most cost-effective way of going about it, though. The fact is that if you start with disposable e cigs, you will have to re-buy later if you like them. You’ll just be choosing between more disposables and switching to refillables. If you go ahead and start with a refillable e cig, then you do not have to re-buy later if you decide you like it. And if you don’t like it, you will have something of value that you can sell and recoup some of your investment, instead of having disposed of all your disposable e cigs. Keep in mind that disposable e cigs come in starter packs of multiple e cigs, so you will be paying the same amount up front whether you get a disposable starter pack or a refillable starter pack. The only difference is that the refillable starter pack can continue to be used, and will retain value while the disposable starter pack becomes literally trash after it has been used.
What other benefits and drawbacks are there of disposable e cigs versus refillable e cigs?
Convenience is one thing that customers often consider, and eco-friendliness is another. There is no doubt that disposable e cigs are more convenient than refillable e cigs. You never have to mess with recharging a disposable e cig battery, you don’t have to refill it, and you definitely don’t have to clean out the atomizer coil to make it last longer. All you do is throw away the one that is used up and pull another one out, and you are ready to go. If convenience is a really high priority for you, then disposables might be the best choice for you. On the other hand, you sacrifice flavor choices and a lot of customizability when you opt for disposables. When it comes to the environment, refillable e cigs are a much better option than disposables. Instead of filling up landfills with lots of plastic waste from entire e cigs, all you ever really throw away is an occasional empty glass bottle of e juice and sometimes a tiny atomizer coil. There is also a lower carbon footprint creating refillable e cigs and their accessories than disposables, simply because there is a lot less stuff you need to buy to use refillables. So in terms of caring about the planet, refillable e cigs are much better than disposables.
