Best E-pipes of 2017 Available in the UK
Electronic pipes are a bit different from other standard E-cigs and Egos, though they function very similarly. While pipes might not be quite as popular as cigarettes, there are still people out there who enjoy them – so it only makes sense that electronic pipes would become available as E-cig technology becomes more widely used.
Electronic pipes, or ‘E-Pipes’ as they are sometimes called, are very much like electronic cigarettes in almost every category. They’re a little bit tougher to find, since not every company carries them – but there are several good ones on the market, and we’re going to talk about a few of them here.
Of course, when shopping for E-pipes you want to look for a few different things. You want long battery life, a lot of flavour options, and a fair price. You should also try to find a model that has garnered some positive reviews for itself – as this will tell you a lot about the product’s reputation.
A: Using an E-pipe is pretty similar to using an E-cig. There are basically two different types. There are ‘manual’ pipes, and ‘automatic’ pipes. The manual pipes have a firing button that you press to activate the battery. In other words, you would press the button, hold it down for a few seconds, and inhale the vapour. An automatic battery activates automatically when you draw on the pipe itself.
Both experiences are quite similar to what you experience when you smoke a real pipe – though, once again, there’s no tobacco, open flame, or smoke involved.
A: In short, the correct answer would be to say that E-pipes are safer than cigarettes or real pipes. As far as the health concerns go, it’s been shown in a recent independent review that electronic cigarettes are up to 95% less harmful than cigarettes. It’s also been shown that they might have the potential to help smokers quit.
As far as the electronics and functional dangers go, E-pipes contain a battery – so they’re about as safe as a cell phone, in that respect.
A: This depends on your own personal tastes and preferences, though there are a few guidelines that you might want to follow. Making sure that your E-liquids are UK or US made, making sure that they’re made from pharmaceutical-grade materials, and making sure that they’ve got good customer reviews are all important.
A: The answer to this, hands down, is to buy an E-pipe capable of sub-ohm vaping. Of course, this will mean that you’ll need to be able to use a powerful-enough battery, and you’ll need to buy a sub-ohm tank. But once you do these things, you’ll be amazed at the amount of vapour that you can achieve!
A: This depends on what you’re looking for, really. If you want something modern with a more powerful battery, you’ll probably end up gravitating to manual models. If you want something much more realistic that will feel and act much more like a regular pipe, then an automatic model might be the best choice for you. Most E-pipes, however, do tend to have a realistic feel to them – so specific designs might end up being the deciding factor.
The size of the battery is also something to consider. If this device is going to be your primary vaping device, then you might want to make sure to purchase something that is capable of holding quite a bit of battery power.
A: That depends on the kit. Overall, you’re going to need all of the following pieces.
- The pipe bowl
- The stem (the mouthpiece)
- A tank or clearomizer
- A battery
- A charger
A lot of the time, you can buy starter kits that come with everything required to get started. But some pipes don’t come with extras. Some come with only the bowl, a tank, and a stem, for example – but not with a battery or a charger.
A good rule of thumb is to look for a starter kit, as these usually come with everything required to get started. I’d personally would recommend 629 E-pipe from ePuffer. Watch our video review on this very same page.
Here are some of the best E-pipe options on the market today. Hopefully, with this list, you can begin the process of finding the best electronic pipe for you.

Couple additional tips:
- To make the draw easier and smoother ( use fine tip screw driver, and open air flow inside plastic mouthpiece, from the bottom ). Don’t make it too big, as too much air passing can ruin the stem.
- For all day vapers: if you are getting a gargling noise, simply remove the silicon washer ( ring ) from the atomizer top.

Smok Guardian 2
If you’re more into the ‘traditional’ look of a wooden pipe, then this product from JacVapour might be a great place to continue your e-pipe search. This device is relatively advanced to use just as their SMOK Prospect Pipe we listed above, however – so if you don’t have some experience with mods, coils, and/or battery safety procedures, then you’re either going to want to learn about them or possibly look for something a bit more ‘beginner friendly’.
Aside from this, however, this pipe is well-suited to just about any user.
One of the best things about this product is that it’s actually a ‘variable wattage’ pipe mod. You can set the wattage on this device anywhere between 6 and 15 watts, and it’s compatible with coils rated as low as 0.4 Ohm. It’s built of (stainless) steel and wood, and utilizes IMR18350 batteries – though you’ll have to buy these separately, as it doesn’t actually ship with any in the kit.
This pipe also features standard 510/eGo fittings, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to find tanks for it. JacVapour offers the device in a kit or by itself, so you’ll definitely find that a few different purchasing options really contribute to making this one of the best e-pipe mods on the market.
Information! This E-pipe is currently out of stock and not available in the UK but you can try and find it from a U.S. vendor on Google.com!

The starter kit for this E-pipe comes with the E-pioneer, the SMOK clearomizer, and 1 chip. It’s equipped with a magnetic switch instead of the older-fashioned spring-loaded mechanism, and also comes with reverse threaded locking and a rubber-matte finish.

Purple Orchid by Limelight Mechanics
Limelight Mechanics is a company that specializes in hand-crafted vaping equipment – and one of their most elegant offerings is a line of high quality, hand-made E-pipes. These pipes are made from real wood and metal, and are packed full of awesome features.
The Purple Orchid retails for 135.00 €, though it should be noted that you are definitely getting something incredible for your money with this model! It’s hand-carved from a piece of walnut, and comes with three different finish options (natural wax, piano glass, or eggshell matte).
As far as metal components go, it contains both brass and aluminum. It boasts standard 510 connectors, as well as an adjustable ring and a 14mm diameter. It fits an 18350 battery, and ships with one pipe bowl in an engraved calf-leather pouch.

E-Pipe 900 Maxi Carto
The 900 Maxi Carto is on our list for two reasons. Firstly, it’s one of the most realistic and attractive-looking models that we’ve reviewed. And second, it actually works very well and offers a lot of value for the money.
The kit comes with a bottle of E-liquid, two cartomizers, a wall charger, a USB charger, an instruction manual, and the pipe bowl/tip apparatus. It also comes with a battery, though the battery is ‘fixed’ in this model, meaning that you don’t remove it, but rather plug the whole bowl in when you need to charge it.
Unlike most other E-pipes, this model is automatic – which means that you don’t have to push a button to activate it. This makes it more realistic, though it also means that it may not appeal to Ego users who enjoy activating their E-cigs manually.
If you’re in the market for a realistic E-pipe and want to try something new and different, then the 900 Maxi Carto should definitely be on your shopping list.
F-106 electronic pipe
This electronic pipe features a wooden bowl and a stem that doubles as a holder for the clearomizer. It sports 510 threads, a standard 5-press on/off switch with a blue LED light, and an 18350 battery – which is actually kept inside the wooden bowl of the pipe. It comes in a nice decorative box with a wall charger, two batteries, two CE5 cartomizers, and an empty e-liquid filling bottle.
This is an OK E-pipe for beginners, mostly due to its ease of use and simple assembly. The steps required to get the product ready to use are very easy to follow – even for people who have never vaped or used an E-cig before.
If you’re looking for an OK E-pipe for beginners or a spare to keep around the house, then the F-106 e-pipe might be a great option for you.
