We got two batteries, 3 cartridges, 2 chargers, and 3 bottles of 15ml liquid for $98. I "think" that is pretty good, but a few months in and one of my batteries no longer works. The hubby and I both want to upgrade to something a little more powerful but I can't afford it right now so for the moment we share the one that still works.
I have never paid more than 50$ for a vape. My most expensive vape was the K1000. It has an amazing atomizer and can hold about 5-6 mL of juice. Also, it isn't like any other vape because of its form. It is shaped as a pipe!
I have the E-Cigarette. I paid $20 dollars for a rechargeable cigarette and 2 cartridges. I now order my cartridges on line and have them delivered to my door. These E-Cigarette batteries don't last all day, so I do have an extra one that I can use, while the one is charging.
I limit myself between $50-$80 for mods, $50 at the most for my RDA's and my monthly budget on juice is $100. Cotton and Kanthal is cheap so I rarely include that in my budget.
I have tried several differnt ecigs. They really do work. Most of the ones I bought were disposable. Some were $6.95 one for almost $15.00 I bought that one at a Casino, so it was over priced.
I saw one advertised on the internet for $4.95 plus S & H. It had the charger with it, so I decided to order it. I should have known better. I used my debit card to pay for it. The day after I ordered it, I got a phone call from a representitve of the E Ciggarettes. He was really nice, went thru a speel of that when I got this item, there would be a $100.00 dollar gift card for me to keep wiether I wanted to accept their offer that was in there, and I had 14 days to cancel it. An hour or so later I got yet another call from a different salesman, with the exact same speel. I told him I had already gotten the speel earlier, and that I wouldnt accept the offer, as I am on a limited income, and I couldn't afford to pay anything extra.
A couple days later, I checked my bank balance on line, I had a $99.95 charge on there from them, I immediatly called and cancelled their special offer, and demanded a refund. He said he would cancel and send the money back. I then went to my bank to see about changing my debit card number. She told me to wait a few days and see if they send the money back into my account before I changed it, if they didn't send it I could file fraud charges on them. On my way home from the bank, I received a pkg. from them, I didn't open it right away, thought maybe I would send it back. Then a few days later I remembered all I cancelled was their special offer not the e cig and charger, so I opened the pkg. what it was was 4 bottles of tobacco juice, and 4 filter tips. No E Cig. It took another 2 weeks for the actual cig and charger to come, it had 1 bottle of juice, and 1 filter tip, and the charger. I read the instructions, and plugged it in to charge it. After I charged it I couldnt get it to work. I thought I had pushed the button on it, tried a few times, finally gave up and smoked reg cigs, and my disposable ones for a couple days. I had been at my daughters house sitting. When she came home I showed it to her, she said push the button, that time it worked.
I used it for a few days it seemed to be working fine. I charged it up again-used it, then a few days later it needed to be charged again. That time it would not take a charge at all no matter what I did. I ended up throwing it in the garbage.
I did get the $99.95 back~ then I changed my debit card number. What they would have done if I had accepted it was charge me that amount every month, and send the juice and filters.
As I said I should have known better. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. So people out there be careful of ordering on on line. The next one I get will be from a local shop to where if it breaks I can take it back.
As a teenager, I ordered with some friends to smoke for fun a while ago. I payed around $60 to $70 for a tip, atomizer, cone, and battery. My first setup was a "silver bullet". Silver tip, silver cone (long barrel sting ray) and silver ego-c twist. It worked great up until I sold it a while ago.
I agree, if we can afford over $50 for something we really enjoy and we will use several times per day, why not? It's our choice and in the end of the day we will end up saving.
