Cheap vapers looking to find the right vaping equipment may be getting a boost from Amazon, which is offering cheaper devices and accessories.
In a post Wednesday announcing its new vape and vaping accessories program, Amazon announced its “Vape & Vaporizer” section, where it is selling inexpensive vape devices, e-cigarettes, and vape accessories.
In the future, it said, it plans to expand its program to include other popular electronic devices and vaping devices.
“The Amazon Vaporizer is one of the most popular and well-reviewed vape products on Amazon.com, and we are proud to offer its low prices,” said Amazon spokesman Michael Schuster.
“The Amazon Vape offers high-quality vaporization and vaping for a very reasonable price, and you’ll be able to find more devices in our upcoming program.”
The e-cigarette market has been in a bit of a boomlet since 2013, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned sales of e-cigs, but that didn’t mean vaping was on the rise.
Many of the top brands on Amazon were selling their products on the site and the e-cig market has remained strong.
For years, it was difficult to find a device that could deliver the high-tech vaporizer experience that vaping had promised.
The vaporizer itself was a lot more expensive than its vaping counterpart, and many users said it was too much effort to vape a cigarette.
But the vape market has since recovered, and prices have plummeted.
The price of an e-liquid, a liquid that vaporizes the nicotine in e-juice and contains no tobacco, has dropped from $3.75 to $1.59, according to a recent report from Euromonitor International.
The eVaporizer has also been gaining popularity.
According to the research firm eVape.com , there are now 2.6 million e-vaporizers on Amazon and 1.3 million on the company’s website, compared with 6 million for e-liquids in 2013.
The new Amazon Vaporizers program, launched with the help of a $3 million investment from Google Ventures, is expected to grow to more than $50 million by 2020, according the company.
The program is still in its infancy and Amazon hasn’t said when it plans on rolling it out to other retailers.
But in a blog post on Wednesday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said that the company has already made significant progress in bringing affordable vaporizers and accessories to the marketplace, adding that Amazon’s program will give users “a great deal of choice.”
He added: “We have built a tremendous and loyal customer base for our vaporizers, and now we’re expanding the program to other brands that offer vaporizing and vaping products at affordable prices.”
The news comes as the eCigs, a new category of vaporizers that includes e-Liquid and eCigarette flavors, are expected to increase in popularity.
In April, eCiggies were among the first vaporizers to hit the market, and the category has now surpassed eVapes in sales.
While the eVigarette category was in decline in the early days, the trend has picked up in recent months, as eCgarettes become more popular.
The vape industry has also experienced a bump in the price of vaping products since 2013.
Last year, the average price of a pack of 10 eCIGs, or a pack containing 50 eCipes, was $39.60, according eCogarette Warehouse.
But this year, prices are expected the eLiquids and eVigs will go up by $0.25 to $13 and $7 to $19, respectively.
