Best E-pipes UK 2018

Vape Pipe 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. Read the best vape pipe UK reviews.

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.


Q: What is an E-pipe?
A: An E-pipe is technically an ‘electronic pipe’. It’s designed (and functions) similarly as an E-cig, except that it looks and feels more like a pipe instead of a cigarette. These types of products range from realistic to modern – but they’re basically made to imitate the experience of smoking a tobacco pipe. They use no tobacco, however, so there is actually no smoke. Instead, they vapourize E-liquid to carry the flavouring and the nicotine into the mouth and lungs.
Q: How do you use an E-pipe?

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.

Q: Are E-pipes safe?

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.

Q: What are the best E-liquids for E-pipes?

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.

Q: Where can I get E-juice for my E-pipe?
A: Most pipes will allow you to vape just about any type of E-liquid. If you want more of a pipe-flavour, then you might want to go with a rich tobacco-like liquid, as this will be the most likely to imitate the taste of a real pipe.
Q: How can I achieve the best clouds with my E-pipe?

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!

Q: Which E-pipe is the best for me?

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.

Q: Do I need additional accessories when buying an E-pipe?

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
  • E-liquid
  • 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

Couple additional tips:

  1. 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.
  2. For all day vapers: if you are getting a gargling noise, simply remove the silicon washer ( ring ) from the atomizer top.

Smok Guardian 2

Smok Guardian 2 E-pipeIf 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!

SMOK Pioneer E-pipe

SMOK Pioneer E-pipeThe Pioneer E-pipe from SMOK is a fancy, semi-mechanical mod that performs extremely well for how inexpensive it is.

It features an 18350 battery, 510 compatibility, and a 3.0ml full-capacity tank – all of which are fantastic features for an e-pipe in this price range. It also comes in several different colors, including pink, brown, and black.

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.

If you’re in the market for an E-pipe and want something that’s going to work well without costing you a ton of money, then this is definitely an option to check out!

Purple Orchid by Limelight Mechanics

Purple Orchid by Limelight Mechanics

Vendor who provided the sample is no longer selling these so best to GOOGLE it.

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.

Separate accessories, like tips, chargers, batteries, etc. are sold separately. If you’re looking for something elegant and top-of-the-line, then the Purple Orchid may definitely be for you.

E-Pipe 900 Maxi Carto

E-Pipe 900 Maxi Carto

Vendor who provided the sample is no longer available so best to search on GOOGLE.

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

 F-106 electronic pipe

Vendors change for this E-pipe so best to search on GOOGLE.

This e-pipe UK 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.

  1. John tovey says:

    Can’t understand negative comments on Kamry 1000 pipe. I have 2 and neither have given any problems, also they will accept other atomisers.

  2. Ray Gower says:

    Worth noting that the Liberro Classic kit is also a Kamry 1000, and suffers the same basic problem. The centre contact where the bowl connects to the vapouriser is mounted on a little nylon bush that softens in use and is slowly pushed out until the contact shorts.
    There is a fix, of sorts, pull the contact out yourself, carefully remove the mangled remains of nylon, without damaging the wire and fit a small piece of heatshrink sleeve on the contact shoulders. Be very careful not to pull the contact off the wire, the Chinese tinsel used will melts at a slightly lower temperature than solder.
    Otherwise, apart from the habit of the CE5 flooding to give a mouthful of juice, it is not a bad starter pipe for a long term pipe smoker

    • G Bellingham-Wylie says:

      I gave up with this epipe after four replacements, felt embarrassed by complaining. However for some strange reason I purchased the new version.
      Small bowl takes a bit of getting used to and you have to be very careful when refilling as not dislodge the small rubber washer on the atomiser, great puff, so we will see how long the internal battery in the bowl will last for. Cannot complain so far.

  3. Jerry Shoolbred says:

    I bought a Kamray 1000 just over a week ago – I love the feel & weight of it, but I’m a little disappointed.
    After just a week’s use, the taste is already feeling bitter, like I used to get with other vamping devices.
    Is this normal? And do I simply replace the ‘wick’? Ideas please?

    • Zed 13 says:

      I dunno if you’ll see this, and given the age of the post you might have solved the problem already, but if it’s tasting shitty, you likely need to change the coil/wick in the tank.

  4. Nicole says:

    Hi Jerry, at first, it sounds as a typical Karmy K1000 problem that quite a few users have reported already. It is very likely that you’ve burnt something due to overheating, in most cases however, when you’re getting bitter/bad taste then cleaning or changing your atomizer may as well fix it. So I’d start with that, clean your device properly. If that doesn’t help then get a new atomizer. In general, you may get a bad taste from devices in the following situations:

    – When vaping a dry wick
    – If you haven’t cleaned your tank
    – When you’re low on e-liquid
    – When you have a bad/burnt atomizer
    – If/when vaping at too high variable voltage
    – When using overfilled atomizer tank, when tank is leaking
    – When puffing tank too hard
    – If you left your atomizer tank in the sun and damaged it etc.

    We’ll do a separate article to cover this topic from A-Z but hope this helps for now. In worst scenario and if you can’t figure out where the problem is, get in touch with the merchant you bought your E-pipe from. It’s their job to help and support their customers!

  5. Bob McNair says:

    I have a Petersham Westminster II which blinks when the battery is nearly discharged.
    Do you know if the 629 R2 does this? TIA

  6. Bucky Juice says:

    I just don’t really ‘get’ e pipes.

    It’s just a vape, in another shape.

    The pleasure in a pipe is down to the way the flavour changes, as the material the bowl is made of seasons, and takes on board the flavours, releases the impregnated oils and tars and flavour compounds as you smoke.

    With E pipe you are just using a battery, switch, regulating chipset, and atomiser in a different layout to a standard vape, but effectively, subjectively in terms of flavour and vapour production, there will be no difference to using that atomiser in a standard set up or in an e pipe.

    The e pipe is just more cumbersome and restricted in battery options, and therefore in available power and battery life.

    Look nice if you like that sort of thing, but that’s as far as it goes. I can see the attraction maybe in some of the more high end, Limelight, or Lash spring to mind, unique items.

  7. Sue says:

    This was really helpful, thanks. I’m in need of help though if possible. I am looking for a e-pipe for my husband and I wanted to get one I can mod so he has the same aspire nautilus tank that he currently uses. After reading this and doing a bit more research I decided the Smok guardian 2 would be perfect only to then find it isn’t available anymore. Could you possibly recommend something else that would work? I did consider some of the auto models but apparently they won’t work with the nautilus. I’m really after real wood or at least the look of it.

    • Nicole says:

      Hi Sue, unfortunately there really isn’t that much of a choice, especially when it comes to E-pipes that are made or at least look as if they are made of a real wood, giving us a traditional type pipes look. We’ve not reviewed any other E-pipe a part of the Guardian 2 that could have been bought in the UK and which could be used with the tank you mentioned. That e-pipe however, as you have already noticed is no longer for sale and looks like there won’t be any new stock produced for it, so as much as I’d like to find an available alternative I’m afraid there isn’t one at the moment, at least I’m no aware of it and quick further research confirmed it. I’m also aware that Epuffer will launch their new E-pipe mod but it’s only likely to happen next year. From currently available E-pipes in the UK, if it’s the traditional pipes look you’re after, our favorite pipe is Epuffer’s 629, which comes in a lovely gift type box, so may still be a nice surprise if you’re looking for a nice Christmas present for your husband. Hope this helps.
