In addition to the relatively high safety in terms of human health, the advantage of vapes is that they employ only the advantages of heated cigarettes.
First of all, the increased variety of smoking styles that can be selected according to preference is a major advantage. Since vape liquids sold in actual shops in Japan are only nicotine-free types, it may be difficult to experience the same sensation as smoking a paper cigarette. However, there are so many different types of flavors in vape that it is a real pleasure to find the one that suits your taste. Strong menthol flavors have a reputation for being thirst-quenching and satisfying even for smokers. Also, by adjusting the amount of vapor, you can enjoy a smoke explosion, and the enjoyment of exhaling the white smoky substance (vapor) can be said to be greater than that of smoking cigarettes. Vape can be used for the purpose of quitting smoking or reducing smoking, and it is also an easy-to-use luxury item for tobacco novices with zero experience smoking cigarettes.
In addition, many nicotine-containing liquids are sold overseas, and it is possible to obtain nicotine-containing vape liquids in Japan through the process of private importation. However, there are some restrictions on personal importation, such as "use only by the person who purchased the liquid" and "a monthly import limit of 120 ml.
If you wanted to smoke a cigarette continuously, you would have to light a new one every time you finished smoking one. However, with a vape, the liquid is heated simply by turning on the power, so as long as there is liquid remaining, you can smoke continuously. Another advantage is that while paper cigarettes require the hassle of pushing them into an ashtray to make sure they are gone, heated cigarettes and vape cigarettes can be easily finished by simply turning off the power.
Types of Vape Bodies by Price
A wide variety of vape devices are now available, and they can be divided into three main price ranges. Here we will divide them into the 1,000-3,000 yen range, the 3,000-8,000 yen range, and the 8,000-15,000 yen range, and explain the construction and functionality of each.
1. 1,000 to 3,000 yen range VAPE
Most of the vapes in the 1,000 to 3,000 yen range are stick-type or POD-type cartridge vapes, in which the body and liquid are integrated, or disposable vapes. Therefore, most of the vapes in this price range are maintenance-free models that do not require refilling of liquid, cleaning of tanks, or replacement of coils. There are also a number of models that are easy to operate, with no button operation, and vapor is produced by simply sucking on the vape.
2. vape in the 3,000-7,000 yen range
Many of the products in the 3,000-7,000 yen range are liquid vapes that allow you to use your own choice of liquid. In addition, many products in this price range are easy to operate. For example, a product that can be operated entirely with a single button is easy to use, even for those who are not accustomed to vaping. Also, since the battery capacity is large, there is no need to worry about the battery running out of charge within a day or so. For those who are looking for a vape that is easy to handle even for beginners and allows for a bit of customization, we recommend a product in this price range.
3. 7,000 to 10,000 yen Vape
There are many vape products in the 7,000-15,000 yen range, most of which are liquid vapes. Among them, there are many multifunctional models with a high degree of freedom to customize parts to your own taste.
For example, most products in this price range are equipped with a VW mode that allows you to adjust the voltage output from the battery. Furthermore, some products are equipped with a temperature control function that prevents the cotton from burning, making vaping more comfortable and enjoyable. At this level, settings and fine-tuning before vaping and button operations during vaping become a bit more complicated. Intermediate vape users, people who want to customize their vape to their liking, and those who are looking for a vape with high specs and multiple functions should check out products in this price range.
What determines the running cost of a vape is the frequency of use and the performance of the vape from different vape manufacturers. Here, we will try to calculate the approximate running cost based on the general frequency of use and conditions of use.
The consumables needed for vape are "liquid" and "coil. The price of the liquid is around 1000 yen for 10ml, and the estimated number of days of consumption is about 5 to 10 days. For 15 ml, the price is around 1000-1500 yen for 10-15 days, and for 30 ml, the price is around 2500-3000 yen for 15-30 days. In addition, coils need to be replaced every 2 weeks or so, and coils can be purchased for about 300-500 yen each.
If one bottle of liquid containing 30 ml is consumed per month, the cost of liquid per month is about 3,000 yen. Also, if you change coils about 3 times a month, the cost of coils per month will be about 1,500 yen at most. Thus, the estimated running cost of a vape is about 4,500 yen per month. If you switch completely to a vape, the running cost will be about one-third of the cost for someone who smokes a pack of cigarettes a day.
