How Much Do Non-Nicotine Vapes Cost? (In-Depth Look)

Unless you’re a “money-is-no-object” type of person, the price is one of the considerations that’s going to come into play whenever you're choosing a nicotine-free vape. If you are a “money-is-no-object” type of person, you can probably stop reading now, Moneybags. So you're probably wondering, “How much do non-nicotine vapes cost?”

While the prices of these devices can vary widely and depend on several factors (which we’ll cover below), this article will give you a general idea of what nicotine-free vapes should cost. So, let's get to it.

How much do non-nicotine vapes typically cost?

Asking how much non-nicotine vapes typically cost is like asking how much a bottle of wine or a case of beer typically costs. The price of nicotine-free vapes will vary based on many factors. Let's cover those right now.

Note: Some companies on this list offer several different products. For this article, we're focusing on each manufacturer's disposable 0 nicotine vapes. That approach allows us to compare apples to apples when looking at prices.

Which factors typically influence the price of nicotine-free vapes?

How much are zero nicotine vapes? Several different factors will influence the price of nicotine-free vapes, some of which are obvious, while others may be less so.

Brand Reputation

As with any other consumer product, the name of the brand on the label will play a large part in the price of any vape. Just as you'd pay more for a branded T-shirt or water bottle, so will you pay a bit of a premium for brands with a higher profile and spend more on marketing.

Whether or not these higher prices are deserved is ultimately up to you to decide. However, well-known brands typically use high-quality ingredients in their vape juice and have put their devices through rigorous testing to ensure quality and end-user safety.

Such diligence may only sometimes be the case with smaller or lesser-known brands. That's not to say you shouldn't give new brands a chance. But do thorough research into the manufacturer and the ingredients before you decide to give it a try.

Quality of Ingredients and Materials

The two main expense drivers in manufacturing a vape are the costs of the materials used to make the device itself and the costs of the ingredients used to make the vape juice. Higher-quality materials or ingredients typically translate into a higher device price.

For example, gaining organic certification for a vape company’s ingredients is a lengthy and extremely expensive process. Any vape manufacturer willing to undergo that process and expend those resources will typically produce high-quality devices and e-juice. Still, you should also expect to pay a premium for this level of engagement.

Design and ‘Bells & Whistles’

Although they are more often seen in vapes with nicotine and high-tech vape mod kits, some disposable no-nicotine vapes do contain an impressive level of technology, like LCD screens, adjustable coils, and adjustable heat settings, all of which can add up to one heck of an expensive device.

However, the vapes we’re covering here are standard disposables and generally do not include many added technologies.

What are the prices of popular nicotine-free vapes on the market?


HELO Plus vape

Our sister MELO and HELO brands are both market-leading when it comes to nicotine-free vaping. They share a common goal, which is to give vapers a much healthier alternative to vapes that are packed with nicotine, but they go about accomplishing this goal in opposite ways.

MELO is one of the highest-quality melatonin diffusers you'll find, while HELO is one of the best caffeine diffusers. So, while MELO helps you chill and relax, HELO gives you some get-up-and-go by providing a spike of energy.

We produce vapes from both brands, so we know that both are committed to quality ingredients at the forefront of their missions, without any of the bad stuff some other manufacturers might pack into their products.

MELO and HELO devices are both offered in two sizes — Air and Plus. The Air version of each should deliver around 400 inhales over its lifespan, while the Plus size should deliver double that, or around 800 inhales.

In terms of price, both MELO and HELO offer tremendous bang for your buck. The Air size clocks in at $14.99, while the Plus size is currently available for $24.99. The Plus size is the winner when it comes to "cost per puff," a rough and totally unscientific metric we just made up for the purposes of this article.

Either size is a great value, considering the high quality of the ingredients and our reputation. Our flavors are top-notch, too, with unique offerings like Cotton Candy, Orange Dreamsicle, Gummy Bear, and Caramel Coffee.

ARRØ Max vape

The ARRØ Max is a unique entrant on this list because it's the only vape here that contains flavor and flavor alone. There are no herbs, supplements, vitamins, or anything else to get in the way of the fan-favorite flavors that the ARRØ Max provides.

The other factor setting the ARRØ Max apart is its incredibly long lifespan. Each disposable should deliver around 5,000 puffs. At only $22.99 per device, it is one of the most economical choices on our list. Popular flavors for the ARRØ include Magic Mint, Hawaiian Ice, Strawberry Kiwi, and Gummy Drop.

HealthVape Boost

Like MELO and HELO, HealthVape packs vitamins and supplements into its vape juice. It offers six varieties, each featuring a unique flavor and vitamin or herb combination designed to produce a physiological effect. These include Boost, which contains vitamin B12, and Chill, which features chamomile.

Each HealthVape disposable should last for around 450 to 500 puffs and cost $19.99 when purchased individually (per-unit costs are a bit lower when you buy a multi-pack).

Ripple+ Boost

Ripple+, like HealthVape, offers several different flavor/ingredient combinations, each formulated to benefit the mind and body.

For example, Ripple+'s Dream features valerian and jujube seed to promote relaxation, while its Boost is packed with matcha and green tea for sustained energy. Flavors depend on the supplement blend you choose, but they feature fruity standbys like Watermelon, Mango, and others.

Each disposable should last around 1,000 puffs and will set you back $18 for a single device.

Cyclone Gust Super

Cyclone offers two disposables: the Gust and the Gust Super. We'll focus on the Gust Super here because it's the more popular of the two and delivers more bang for your vaping buck.

The Gust Super is a rechargeable disposable because its load of vape juice is anticipated to last longer than a single charge of the device's battery. Each Gust Super should last 5,000 puffs before the e-juice is exhausted. These devices come in popular fruity flavors like Fruit Punch and Mango and cost $18 each.

Are nicotine-free vapes safe?

While long-term studies on nicotine-free vapes and their safety are few and far between, we can say with almost certainty that non-nicotine vapes are safer than vapes that contain nicotine and much safer than traditional cigarettes.

Cigarettes contain thousands of toxic chemicals (many of them carcinogens), tar, and carbon monoxide, to name just a few of the horrible things you'll introduce into your body when you smoke tobacco in the traditional manner.

Of course, the safety of any non-nicotine vape ultimately comes down to the safety of the ingredients in the vape juice. In the early days of e-cigarettes, many manufacturers used ingredients like vitamin E acetate and diacetyl as flavoring agents.

Then, it was discovered that both compounds contributed to severe health conditions, like “popcorn lung.”

Today, you’ll rarely see either compound on a vape juice ingredients list. They’ve seemingly been completely phased out. But you still need to keep a close eye on the ingredients listed for any device you're considering trying.

Finally, while it's probably less of a concern, even if a vape’s ingredients are generally considered safe, they may not be safe for you. For example, if you’re allergic to something in food form, you'll probably react negatively to that ingredient if it's in a vape.

Also, think about how you react to ingredients in “the real world” and assume that if that ingredient is in a vape, you'll respond the same way.

So, if you get jittery after one cup of coffee, you'll probably experience the same effects if you use a caffeine vape. It's just something to keep in mind.
