Among the many questions that those new to vaping often ask is “how much does a good vape pen cost?”

Most people who smoke are used to buying the same pack of cigarettes all the time; generally, they're not interested in other brands or flavours and have possibly bought the same brand for many years. But when they consider switching to vaping instead of smoking, so that they can protect themselves from the real harms of tobacco while still getting the nicotine they want, it can often be a puzzling affair trying to work out what to buy. It's also the case for people who have never smoked but want to try vaping, for various reasons. There's the potential enjoyment of a huge amount of wild, wacky and totally zany flavours in the e-liquids that e-cigarettes use, many of which contain little or no nicotine at all. And then there's the growing "sport" of cloud chasing, where vapers blow giant plumes of vapour and can win big prizes at competitions around the world. It turns out that vaping really is a lot of fun. But where to start with e-cigarettes, given the enormous variety of devices now on the market, and how much does a good vape pen cost, anyway? In this blog, we're going to give you a quick overview of what to expect when you're starting out in the vaping world and how much you can expect to pay for your vape gear. So buckle up, sit back and come along for this thrilling vape-gear ride!

A Vape Pen, Just for You

Tall ones, short ones, skinny ones, fat ones — vape pens come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but essentially they're all the same and do exactly what you want: deliver a great vaping experience, and one that's not difficult to get to grips with if you're just starting out. They're designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind and, for most, just drawing on a mouthpiece or pressing a button to start the vaping process is all you need to do. Vape pens are discreet enough that you can carry one about with you wherever you go — in a pocket or elsewhere — and when you use it, it's often the case that you'd barely even notice it. This is what has propelled vape pens to the forefront of popularity among all the many vaping devices available today — you can happily vape away without causing a big, in-your-face vaping scene with a large and clunky piece of vape gear. And a good vape pen comes with all the flavours you can expect from vaping. This includes everything from vanilla to banana, strawberry, blueberry, cherry, bubblegum and a constellation of other incredible e-liquid flavours you're sure to enjoy. When your e-liquid runs out, you just need to replace the cartridge or refill your tank and you're all set to keep on vaping, meaning your trusty vape pen will last and last — unlike a traditional cigarette or even a disposable e-cig, which you throw away when you’re finished.
