The Value of E-Liquid
How do you judge the value of e-liquid? – Is it the quality in taste, the brand, price, or country it came from?
It’s wild how a product that is so easily produced has such a high retail mark upl. In fact, most e-cigarette companies rely on e-liquid sales rather than hardware sales.
Did you know the quality in taste heavily relies on the base used? The reason why you might prefer one brand over another is because of that certain taste you get from each e-liquid that is produced. Besides the flavor, the base to the e-liquid mixture is usually used throughout all of that same brands flavors. And, then there are flavors used. Do you base the value of e-liquid by how it tastes? – Should it cost more because you like the flavors produced by that certain brand?
Brand is a major factor when judging the value of e-liquid. Though many of you might go with taste being how you value e-liquid, it’s different in other markets. For example, even though Old Navy (less expensive) has a shirt made just like a Tommy Hilfiger (more expensive) shirt, people still pay that higher price for the Tommy Hilfiger shirt. There are a lot of factors to weigh in when talking about a brand. Some people may prefer a brand simply because they started off using that specific company when they originally made the switch. On the other hand, people prefer a brand because of its track record or how its established itself.
Could it be price? – Would you sacrifice taste for a lower cost e-liquid or pay more for a better tasting e-liquid? – We’ve always known that China made e-liquid can be bought at a very cheap price. However, it’s typically a one flavor mix which sets the price apart from say USA made e-liquid.
I recently came across a website from Israel that sells 100ml bottles of e-liquid (Yaeliq) in almost every flavor for only $18. So, what is it exactly that drives us to pay $10 for a 10ml bottle of e-liquid in the US?
