Are electronic cigarettes expensive compared to their less healthy counterparts?

Already wrote about it on my site, so I'll just rewrite myself.
The answer in a nutshell: electronic cigarette is as expensive (or as cheap) as you choose it to be.
With so many e-cig variants today, you can really choose whether you're going to pay around $50 or $150 or more monthly. This includes initial costs (starter kit i.e. batteries a couple of cartomizers or clearomizers, USB charger, wall adapter)
Of course, there are expensive or, shall we say, way overpriced e-cig products on the market. These are mostly disposables, usually sold at malls, gas stations ets. They don’t last nearly as much as advertised. After trying a number of these, I can say that you basically give anything between $7-10 for several hours of vaping. You obviously don’t need that.
There are high quality reusable vapor cigarettes that are definitely not on the cheap side. However, after trying out a number or e-cigs as reviewers, we at home occasionally still vape one famous brand despite the price – they are that good!
On the other hand, speaking of low-cost ideas – eGo and EVOD batteries are the way to go, coupled with some clearomizers like CE4, 5, EVOD or other Knagers. If you don’t mind their size, that is, if you are willing to vape anything bigger than cigalikes. These batteries and clearomizers with replaceable parts are sold everywhere today. We know a couple of good internet retail places very well, both in US and UK. And I know from my experience that vaping eGo or similar (iGo, KGO, EVOD) reduces e-cigarette cost at least twice relation to smoking. You can even go cheaper than that, but try not to compromise the quality.
