How Much Does It Cost to Vape?

December 04, 2023

If you’re thinking about switching to vaping, then you might be questioning the cost. As there are many types of devices and many types of juice, it’s understandable that the cost might seem overwhelming. The good news is that the price of vaping is likely not as high as you expect.

In this article, we will outline all the costs associated with vaping so you know exactly what to expect. Making the switch to vaping has never been easier with RELX, and it won’t break the bank, either. Read on to learn everything you need to know.

Disposable Vapes Price

When compared to other types of vape devices, the disposable vape is undoubtedly the cheapest. Disposable vapes are small, short-term devices that are usually pre-filled with juice and cannot be topped up. As they are disposable, they also cannot be recharged.

How long a disposable vape lasts depends entirely on how much it is used. If used very regularly, it will likely only last a day, but more conservative use may mean the device will last up to four days. Disposable vapes are usually described in terms of how many puffs it has the potential to offer.

The cost of a disposable vape in Canada is usually between $5 to $40. If you’re new to vaping, disposable vapes are a great place to start.

Vape Pens Price

In the range of regulated vape devices, vape pens fall in the middle of the spectrum. That goes for size as well as cost. Vape pens are a step up from disposable vapes. They tend to be designed in pen-like shapes and come in options that are both non-refillable and refillable. The key upgrade with a vape pen compared to a disposable vape is that they are rechargeable. However, it’s also the reason they generally cost a little more.

Vape pens tend to range in price from around $15- to $60, depending on the type you buy. The extra money you spend compared to the disposable option is down to the fact that you will keep it for longer.

Vape Pods Price

The final type of vape device is the vape pod, which is the most expensive on the list. While they are more costly than the other options, it’s important to note that they can be a much better value for money if you use them regularly and maintain them well. Essentially, in the long run, you will spend less money by going for a vape pod if you vape often.

If you vape using a pod, you’ll need a couple of elements. First, the pod itself, which holds the juice. Second is the device, which has a battery. You put the two together to use as one, and then when the time comes to change any part (e.g. replace the coil or juice), you can remove them again.

The device will cost around $15-$60, and the pods themselves are between $8-16 each. While that initially seems cheaper than the vape pens, remember you will have a pod device for much longer and, therefore, will be buying the pod sections more often.

Component Costs: What Influences the Price of a Vape?

The Vape Device

The most obvious cost of vaping is the device itself. Whether you are opting for a disposable vape, pen, or pod, the vape device is the first (and likely most expensive) product you will buy. As discussed above, the cost of the devices ranges in price depending on which one you go for, but regardless, it won’t set you back too far.

As you can see, the cost of the devices is likely much cheaper than you might have expected. Certainly, in comparison to smoking, the prices are much lower, making it much more budget-friendly.

If you will be vaping regularly and a lot, it’s a better idea to go for a pen or pod device as that will be better value than the disposable ones.

Vape Juice

Next on the list is the juice. Of course, this cost will not affect you if you choose to go for disposables, but if you find you enjoy vaping, then it will be much more cost-effective to upgrade to a rechargeable and refillable device anyway.

Vape juices and e-liquids range in price, and there are often different levels, such as ‘Essential’ and ‘Premium.’ You also have the option to make your own vape juices, which will be much cheaper than buying them new.

Replacement Coils

If you decide to buy either a pen or a pod, there will be much more maintenance involved. The disposable vapes last a few days, and then you throw them out - it’s very rare for there to be any maintenance issues with them. However, the rechargeable ones will require more care.

One of the big things to consider is the price of replacing the coil. In a vape device, the coil heats up and evaporates the e-liquid, turning it into the vapour you inhale. As with most parts in an electric machine, this will eventually stop working and need replacing.

You may need to replace the coil every two weeks, and a pack will cost anywhere from $15-$30.

Replacement Tanks

Equally, you might find yourself in the position where you need to change the tank on your device if you have gone for a bigger model. The tank is the part of the device that holds the e-liquid, so it’s crucial the tank is working as it should be. You certainly want it leakproof and not cracked in any way.

The chances are that you’ll need to replace the tank much less often than you will the coil, so the cost is far lower for this part. The average price of a tank is around $40, and you only need to replace it if it stops holding the liquid.

Regardless, it’s good to remember that this might be a cost you will need to fork out for.

Replacement Batteries

Finally, we have the battery. Much like the tank, it’s unlikely you'll need to replace this very often. It’s also only a cost if you buy a non-disposable device, such as a pen or pod. The good news is that batteries last a long time, and when or if you do need to replace them, they don’t cost too much to replace.

For your records, you can expect to pay approximately $10-$15 for a new vape device battery, and it might even be the case that you go the whole year without needing to spend that.

As you can see, vaping costs are much lower than you might have expected.

Cost-Saving Tips: How To Save On Vaping Costs

The good news is that vaping is much cheaper than expected. The great news is that it can get even more affordable. No matter which device you’d like, there are always ways to cut costs. After all, where there's a will, there's a way.

Vaping doesn't have to be an expensive habit. To help you out even more, we’ve collated some of the best ways you can cut costs when buying your vapes and the associated accessories.

  • Buying on sale
  • Buy second-hand or older devices
  • Opt for non-premium vape juices
  • Make your own vape juice
  • Wrap your own coil

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does It Cost to Vape a Day?

How much it costs to vape per day depends entirely on the type of vape and juice you have, along with how often you vape throughout the day. Different models of vape devices and juices range in price, and therefore, it's not possible to set a defined price per day.

Final Thoughts

While there are many factors that determine the price of vaping, one thing is clear: it's cheaper than most people expect it to be. If you choose to go for a vape device that is rechargeable and refillable, you will spend less money than if you consistently use disposable vapes.

Regardless of your choice of device, you'll find that vaping is very reasonably priced. If you'd like a new vape device or simply need to top up on your juices, visit the RELX collection now.
