Cigars have long been a symbol associated with status and wealth, and with good reason – they’re not cheap. Good cigars can range anywhere from $15 to $50+ a stick, with really rare and desirable cigars costing much more than this.
If you’re looking for an alternative, though, how does the cost of electronic cigars stack up?
The Average Price of Electronic Cigars
Like normal cigars, the price of E-cigars varies. However, most E-cigars will cost you somewhere between the $15 to $40 range, with some costing near $100. While this may not sound any more affordable than regular cigars at first, the difference comes when you consider how much longer E-cigars last.
A typical cigar will only take about an hour to smoke. E-cigars, on the other hand, can last several days or weeks depending on how often you smoke them. Most E-cigars are rated to produce 1,000+ puffs, with several brands producing much more than this. With this in mind, buying an E-cigar is more akin to buying a box of traditional cigars than it is a single cigar. Therefore, it’s safe to surmise that smoking E-cigars is, on average, more affordable than smoking traditional cigars.
As with anything, the amount you end up spending is almost entirely dependent on you. There are E-cigars that will set you back a lot more than the cost of smoking traditional cigars, just like there are some rare, elite traditional cigars that will cost you a small fortune just for a single stick. At the end of the day, though, the increased time that an E-cigar lasts compared to that of a traditional cigar means that E-cigars win the battle of which one is the most affordable to smoke on a regular basis.
