Affordable Vaping Top Quality Vape Gear On A Budget

By Matt McConnell

lowest prices on vaping supplies

Affordable vaping is possible. You can get top quality vape gear on a budget. While it is generally true in vaping, as with all things, that you get what you pay for, it is possible to experience fantastic vaping from truly excellent, durable and reliable electronic cigarette products without having to break the bank. You can even get very affordable electronic cigarettes for each and every genre of vaping be it subohm, temp control or standard vaping. The competition in the market is fierce and that works to our advantage as consumers.

In addition to getting the best prices on top quality, affordable vape gear, you can also get premium USA made e-liquids for excellent prices. I am talking about the best eliquids made in a professional lab with the best ingredients to the highest standards. What you don’t want is overpriced ejuices that are blended in the backrooms of vape shops without any real professional safeguards or any real accounting of ingredients. While saving money is great, totally compromising on quality never works out well.

Our affordable vaping guide is going to focus only on quality products at great prices. It is possible to get a really terrific vaping product at a price that fits your budget. We will cover the best deals for vaping for beginners and the best prices for some advanced vaping products. We will not talk about cheap junk that is going to bust on you after a week or two. We are not going to talk about low quality ecigs. Last but not least, we are not going to talk about clones.

We are going to share several affordable vaping categories organized by price. In each category, we will try to cover products or combinations of products that let you get everything you need to start vaping. For example, if we talk about a vape mod that is under a certain price that’s great but you need more than just the mod to start vaping. You will also need a tank and, in some cases, a battery. So each and every price category will include a complete set of quality, reccommended vape products whenever possible.

Authentic Vaping Product Prices

high quality vaping products best prices

While we will be covering the most affordable vaping products we will not be reccommending any clones. Clones are a total disaster and they give the entire industry a bad name. They overheat, they don’t charge properly, they blow up and the list goes on. The worst part is that the clones look just like authentic top quality products. There are hundreds of ecig factories in China and a very large portion of them are dedicated to making clones. They may look alike, but clones use the cheapest possible components and are not good.

I always talk about this clone issue and I consider it a serious one. I have had emails from people who tell me that the cheap clones that they get from FastTech, Ali Baba or eBay are fine. They tell me that the clones are so cheap that when they break down they just buy new ones. I don’t believe them. Clones do not vape as well as authentic products. Clones do not last as long as authentic products. There is no reason to get ripped off by a clone. You can get high quality vaping products for low prices. There is no reaso that I can think of to be okay with being ripped off by a fake ecig.

The sad truth is that clones are everywhere. Even vape shops have been known to unknowingly sell clones vaping products. The best brands like Aspire, Sigelei, Kanger etc all have authenticity codes. What happens with a clone is that they fake the authenticity codes or they have used authenticity codes. So when customers check the codes, they find that the code is either invalid or has been used a thousand times before. When it has been used a thousand times, you know that at least one thousand people have bought a clone and entered the code.

The best way to avoid getting a clone is to buy from a reputable online store like Direct Vapor or to buy direct from an American vape brand.

Vaping Bundle Deals

One way to save money is by getting a vaping bundle deal. A vaping bundle comes with everything you need including eliquid. Some of the affordable vaping options will be vaping bundle deals. These packages will offer a range of products with discounted prices based on buying a volume of products.

Cigarette style starter kits, that is the electronic cigarettes that look like tobacco cigarettes, most often come in bundle deals. These are also called cigalikes. These particular ecigs are the easiest to use. Simply attach a pre-filled ecig cartridge to the battery and thats it. These types of starter kits come with everything you need to enjoy vaping right out of the box.

When it comes to mods or other advanced electronic cigarettes starter kits, including subohm and temp control kits, the components are sold separately. The mod is a separate product than the vape tank and often batteries and battery chargers are also sold as separate items. Now and then, companies and vendors will offer a vaping bundle package where they put a few products together and then offer a discounted price on the whole package. Vape bundles are a great way to get top quality vape gear at a lower price.

American ecig companies in particular are very good at offering tremendous vaping bundle deals. Quite often they include eliquid as well. With all of that out of the way, let’s get into the price categories and the best vape deals for each category.

Affordable Vaping Coupons

ECCR has a large number of affordable vaping coupons. Our ecig coupons are from the best American ecigs brands. A coupon deal can help you save a few bucks on a number of the best vaping products. save anywhere from 5% to 20% off of the purchase of vape starter kits and e-liquids. Who doesn’t like coupons!

Using our affordable vaping coupons is easy. There are basically two types of ecig coupons. Some coupon codes, such as VaporFi and South Beach Smoke, are automatically activated when you click the link to visit the company’s page. The coupon code will automatically apply your discount at checkout. Easy.

The other way to take advantage of a coupon code is to enter the coupon code when you are checking out and then getting the discount. ECCR’s coupon codes are the real deal. We do not have fake coupon codes like many other websites. We have authentic working ecig coupon codes from a number of leading brands.

You can see all of our ecig coupon codes posted on the ECCR website. I will also post applicable coupon codes for each product listed below.

Color Coded Vaping Categories

The four categories of affordable vaping are cigalikes, mods, subohm mods and temp control mods. Cigalikes are the types of electronic cigarettes that look like traditional tobacco cigarettes. These are most popular for people who are just starting out trying to make the switch to vaping or for experienced vapers who are looking for a convenient, easy to use backup vape. Cigalike starter kits will be color coded in green.

Mods will be color coded in blue. Mods are electronic cigarettes that include a larger capacity battery, often 650 mAh to 1300 mAh, and rely on a basic vape tank. These require you to refill the tank with e-liquid manually. Sub ohm mods will be color coded in red. Sub ohm mods are more powerful batteries capable of high output to atomizers with less than 1 ohm of resistance. This means a lot of vapor! Sub ohm mods work with high VG e-liquids.

The last color coded category is purple for temp control mod kits. These are higher end products and tend to run a little higher in price. But there are still exceptional TC mod kit vales that we have found and will share with you. So let’s get to it and find you the perfect thing right in your budget wheelhouse.

Affordable Vaping Under $20

There are not a whole lot of quality options for under $20. Remember, we want to focus on quality. Some shops and retailers are selling generic ecigs and mods for low prices but they are selling absolute trash. It is very important to get something quality that you are going to be happy with. While there are no subohm mods or temp control mods for less than $20, there are a couple of excellent products that will provide you a great vaping experience.

aspire nautilus starter kit is one of the best affordable ecig kits

My favorite standard vape mod kit is the Aspire Premium starter kit. I am probably biased because it is my main every day vape. The Aspire Premium kit features the revolutionary Aspire nautilus tank. Specifically, the Nautilus mini with a 2.5 ml ejuice capacity. This is the tank that was a true game changer largely because of the adjustable airflow design and BVC (bottom vertical coil) design.

Affordable Vaping Under $80

We have a lot more to choose from when thinking about affordable vaping options under the $80 mark. There are no cigalike kits in this vategory but for a beginner looking for something of excellent quality and a complete affordable vape kit, we went with the iJust 2 mod complete with extra coils and Cosmic Fog eliquid. Also at this price range we did not pick out a specific sub ohm mod frankly because the temp control mod that we chose, the Apollo Reliant, is both an amazing TC mod and sub ohm mod. Let’s check them out.

getting started with affordable vaping options like the ijust 2 ecig

The iJust 2 electronic cigarette bundle is a totally complete kit complete with some incredibly popular Cosmic Fog Milk N’ Honey e-juice.

apollo reliant temp control vape mod and apollo ecig coupon code

The Apollo Reliant 60 watt temperature control mod is often overloooked and that is a shame. The issues is that imprts dominate the ecig market. Imports have bigger margins for vape shops so you almsot never see American ecig products like the Apollo Reliant in a vape shop. It really is too bad because Apollo is an American innovator that makes some of the best eliquid and some of the best ecigs in the world. The Apollo Reliant TC mod is a prime example of the impreccable quality of Apollo vaping products.
