What is the Cheapest Way to Vape?

The cheapest way to vape is by using a rechargeable, refillable vape device and either 10ml vape juice or Shortfills. Whilst Disposables may appear cheap, buying one daily can cost you almost £200 a month!

People have been opting to use Disposable Vapes as their preferred vaping device for the last 18 months, which has aided in the massive boom in popularity. People are finding them a convenient way to vape as they’re ready to go out of the packaging, but realistically they’re a very expensive way to vape if used consistently. 

People always want to know if vaping on a budget is possible when they start vaping, and I’ll give you a few tips that I’ve used over the years of vaping that I’ve found to save me money!

How To Save Money With Vaping

Buy Coils in Packs, Not Singularly! 

Every vape device requires a coil to make it function, so it’s essential that you always have a spare at hand just in case the one you’re using decides to give up the ghost! 

Buy your coils in packs, rather than individually as this will save you money straight away! Packs of coils are notably cheaper than just buying ones individually, plus this means you will have plenty of spares so you won’t be stuck without a vape!

“Bulk buying” vape juice is along these same kind of lines as well. You’ll save money the more bottles you buy normally, plus it’s never a bad thing having plenty in reserve so you’ll never run out.

Stop Using Disposable Vapes And Save Money!

While we’re not a fan of disposable vapes here at Vape69, they are helping people transition from tobacco to vaping.

As Public Health England stated back in 2016, Vaping is 95% safer than smoking. This was a huge boost for the vaping industry, to have such backing from a huge governing body.

Action on Smoking and Health released their yearly survey results and it showed the amount of adult users of E-Cigarettes in the UK currently sits at a record high of 4.3 million people, which equates to 8.3% of the adult population of the UK.

ASH also compiled reports on what devices these adult users were using, and unsurprisingly, Disposable Vape use had spiked drastically compared to the previous year. In 2021, ASH reported that Disposables were being used by 2.3% adult users, but fast forward to 2022, and the amount of Adult users opting to use a Disposable sky rocketed to 15%, six times more than the year previous!

As mentioned, Disposables are a great way to get someone started on their transition from smoking to vaping, but they really are not a cost effective way to vape, nor are they an environmentally friendly way to vape either! Let’s look into that in a bit more detail…

What are the Best Alternatives to Disposable Vapes?

Disposables are appealing to most, not only for the flavour profiles, but the fact they are discreet and subtle, and don’t give out a lot of vapour when they’re puffed on. My suggestion for the best alternative to a disposable vape would be a Vape Pod system.

Pod systems are normally small and discreet in size like Disposables are, really simple to use, gives the user a mouth to lung style vape the same as a disposable, doesn’t create much vapour just like a disposable doesn’t, but the thing which is different and much more cost effective…you can refill the pods with your vape juice of choice, and not have to buy a whole new device every time it runs out, unlike a disposable!

At Vape69, we pride ourselves on offering only the best quality vape juice to our customers, but that also applies to the vape devices we sell.

The Aspire R1 device is one of the latest innovative devices bought out by Aspire who are world renowned vaping device specialists! Whilst marketed as “Disposable” the Aspire R1 does have the feature of being able to be refilled up to 8 times as well as being rechargeable as well which are two features that are not on standard run of the mill Disposable Vapes. 

And these are only just over the price of one Disposable Vape so it’s a no brainer really! Check out our handy guide on Aspire R1 devices, including how to use them and an explanation about charging Aspire R1 also!

The negatives of using a Disposable Vape

As mentioned above, Disposables are neither a cost effective or environmentally friendly way to vape, especially if you’re a heavy vaper.

The average cost of a Disposable vape is around £6 per device, and they normally have a 600 puff limit which is equivalent to around 1.2ml of vape juice. I’m going to go into the cost of these in more detail below, but to give a quick insight, people have reported going through one of these a day, pricey way to vape for sure and there’s just no need to spend this much money to vape.

The other huge problem with these, is that they are causing massive harm to the environment, due to them not being recyclable as they contain a lithium ion battery therefore they have to be put into landfill.

New reports that have come out this week have reported nearly 3 million units are being dumped into landfill every single week. I wrote an article on Disposables around six weeks ago, and the figure was sitting at 1 million units a week going into landfill, so that’s almost tripled in such a short space of time which is truly scary to read.

So not only is using a Disposable not a cost effective way to vape, it’s definitely the least sustainable way to vape also, and something that should make your choice of upgrading from disposables that little bit easier to make.

How much does vape juice cost?

Vape juice prices vary from retailer to retailer, with some places charging more depending on the manufacturer, or whether it’s Nic Salts or Freebase. This is where we stand apart from other retailers and manufacturers, as all of our cheap 10ml Vape juices are just 69p, regardless of if they’re Freebase or Nic Salts! We are the leading manufacturer of cheap vape juice in the UK, with all of our juices being fully TPD compliant, adhering to all regulations to ensure nothing goes in to our juices that isn’t allowed, and everything is made in house from start to finish. We don’t import any ingredients from outside the UK to avoid paying excess fees, thus not having to charge you the customer, more money to buy our vape juices.

Can you use Vape69 E-Liquid in Pod Systems?

Absolutely you can. It’s ideal to use in a pod system as our Freebase range as well as our Nicotine Salts range are made with a 50 VG 50 PG ratio base, so they’re perfect for mouth to lung style vaping.
