Cheap Fireworks - Are they Worth It?

"Cheap" fireworks – are they really worth it?

Here at Epic Fireworks, we understand the allure of a bargain, but when it comes to fireworks, quality and safety should always be top priorities.

So, let's dive into this debate and explore whether those budget-friendly fireworks are truly a bang for your buck.

The Appeal of Cheap Fireworks

Now, we get it – the appeal of cheap fireworks is undeniable. They're often readily available, with price tags that won't break the bank.

As you walk through a store, or shop online there they are, brightly coloured packages promising an explosion of excitement at a fraction of the cost. It's easy to see why they catch your eye.

For many, the affordability of cheap fireworks is the main draw. In today's world, where budgets can be tight and expenses add up quickly, the prospect of saving a few pounds on fireworks can be enticing. After all, who doesn't love a good deal?

Accessibility is another key factor. Cheap fireworks are often readily available at supermarkets or discount stores, making them convenient options for last-minute purchases or impulse buys. With just a quick trip to the store or a few clicks of the mouse, you can have a box of cheap fireworks in your hands in no time.

But before you get too swept up in the allure of a bargain, it's essential to consider the old adage: you get what you pay for!

While cheap fireworks may offer initial savings, before you're lured in by the promise of a wallet-friendly display, it's crucial to consider the potential risks and drawbacks that come with opting for the cheaper option.

The Risks and Drawbacks

One of the most significant concerns with cheap fireworks is their quality. Bargain-priced fireworks often sacrifice quality in favour of lower production costs, resulting in subpar performance and disappointing effects. From lackluster bursts to unreliable fuses, the fireworks may fail to deliver the awe-inspiring display you were hoping for, leaving you feeling underwhelmed and disappointed.

Safety is another critical consideration when it comes to cheap fireworks. Inferior manufacturing standards and lax quality control measures can lead to safety hazards such as malfunctioning fireworks, unpredictable explosions, and even fires. Cheap fireworks may be more prone to misfires, duds, and other malfunctions, posing a significant risk to both property and personal safety.

As detailed in the video below, the problem is that with ‘cheap’ you often get substandard quality, which unfortunately can result in little or no powder or incorrectly loaded/packed tubes and they will, on the whole, be a lot lighter than you would usually anticipate.

The tubes on the substandard single ignition barrage in the video could easily have blown out sideways as once fully exposed, it's apparent that the other two are secured with wire and the cheap one, plastic.

Alongside all this, the environmental impact of cheap fireworks cannot be overlooked. Many budget-friendly fireworks contain harmful chemicals and pollutants that can leach into the soil and waterways, posing a threat to wildlife and ecosystems.

So, before you reach for that budget-friendly pack of fireworks, consider the potential risks and rewards – because when it comes to fireworks, safety and quality should always come first.
