    The units (e-cigarettes) that you FILL yourself are more substantial, last much longer and most seem to prefer them, though the small cigarette sizes like in stores now are convenience. There also are e-cigars, but they costly and gimmicky.


    IF you go to "fill your" own e-cigarettes, buy your nicotine liquid from a e-shop, not a C-store. They tend to dilute the nicotine liquid - or so word is out to that effect.

    The refillables (good ones) are larger and cost more, but cost far less in the long run. The batteries (rechargeable) last longer and the only cost is replacing the "wick" every month or 2 for about $3. Much less expensive than cigarettes - and less expensive in the long run than buying disposables.

    I bought it at a mall e-store for $110 - but this is the pipe for half price. If you think that's high, think of the price of a cartoon of cigarettes.

    It has a very nice, substantial feel to it. Fits nicely in your hand. And not so easy to lose. The batteries are rechargeable AND a standard size - unlike e-cigarette batteries - and should last many times longer than a e-cigarette battery, plus a larger liquid holder - and it comes with an extra liquid holder you can just swap in - plus an extra rechargeable battery so you always have a charged one. It best let rechargeables totally drain before recharging them.


    Since it comes with 2 batteries - both also a standard size, two "bowls" for the liquid - which means 2 wicks - plus the extra mouth tip it's a good deal. The only thing you'll need in the future is more screw in wicks (very small), but they last about 2-3 months on these and cost less than $5 each.



    Hot 618 Pipe Electronic Vaporizer Set Series Old Fashioned Style E Pipe in Box | eBay

    $55 dollars for the set, free shipping, from China. Half what the identical set sells for in malls.

    I have bought e-cigarettes such as the disposables you see in stores, the kind that you screw on replacement ends, and even the original small e-cigarettes you can refill, tried e-cigars, and now the newer larger refillables that don't look like an e-cigarette. I like this e-pipe MUCH more. Really feels good in my hand and hopefully won't be so easy to lose.

    Basically all malls have an e-cigarette booth or smoke shop to buy the liquid nicotine. Guys tend to just want "tobacco" or "pipe" flavor. Women tend to go for the flavored stuff. There are 3 concentrations. If you smoke "reds" - go full strength. If you smoke lights, go medium. The weakest concentration is like nothing.

    Give it a try. Buy a cheapie disposable e-cigarette at a store and I think you'd like the e-pipe more.

    To get started, "smoke the e-cigarette" when you are a location where you can't smoke - like in a mall, at a movie, in a restaurant - and load yourself pretty good on the nicotine of it - as you'll more want a cigarette. BUT then you are so loaded up nicotine-wise you will want to light a cigarette, but you won't drag on it much and it longer before you want another.

    The danger is if you are still doing the same level of smoking and adding the e-cigarette. They you are going to become a real nicotine junkie. While eliminating smokes saves your lungs from more damage, nicotine still will contract your blood vessels and other negative health effects of nicotine - but they do spare your lungs more abuse.

    The tobacco industry has A LOT of clout. A company developed a cigarette that was a regular cigarette and burned like one - but the filter removed about 95% of the tar, while allowing the nicotine thru. They had a patent on it. The tobacco industry got the FDA to ban it claiming it fraudulently would convince people that smoking a cigarette is safe.

    If e-cigarette ads are banned, it will on tobacco lobbying.

    ALSO, you may want to stock up on the liquid nicotine. The tobacco industry is pushing the FDA to declare that in liquid form it is a "drug" that you must have a prescription for to kill e-cigarettes, which such a FDA regulation would do.

    Good choice.

    And Thank you!

    I just went to your link and bought 1 liter (tad over a quart) of the e-liquid (1.8, strong flavor Malboro). Better than $10+ at a mall for 10ml! I quart will last what? 5 years? More? Probably should have bought a gallon, but I don't know if there is a shelf life.

    I do think there is a possibility that out of the blue the FDA or USDA will ban liquid nicotine. It looks like no one is willing to ship it into the USA anymore - which I know they used to do.

    I really like this e-pipe personally. I bought a backup off the ebay link, then looked around and found if I can wait a month I can get them for $45 including shipping if I order from China, so bought a 3rd. So rather than carry it everywhere I can just leave one here and one there so-to-speak.

    It's funny they have a marijuana flavored e-liquid (no THC in it). They also sell the liquid base, which is propylene glycol - which is a super cheap substance anyway - and "pure nicotine" - which is probably the best deal to make your own - but then again you could kill yourself with it. I wonder if anyone has used refillable e-cigarettes and somehow concentrated THC so they could have e-THC rather than e-nicotine? No pot smell, probably wouldn't trigger a drug-dog, and police would just figure it's an e-cigarette. Plus the person could claim "I didn't know, that's just what they sent me online so I was tricked!" I guess there could be no end to that - e-crack, e-meth... LOL

    Again, thanks for the link.

    The "marajuana" flavored juice was no such thing, it tasted like cane sugar. The nicotine content was real though, it packed a wallop.

    I also tried to get weed flavored e-juice from this place:

    Marijuana Flavored eLiquid | Wacky Tobacky | Marijuana e liquid

    It tasted like blue PineSol, but again the nicotine was bangin'.



    Has anyone found juice that actually tastes like weed?

    They should only be allowed to advertise if they lack all of the nicotine and other addictive and unhealthy elements that made cigarettes illegal to advertise in the first place. If they're completely healthy and non-addictive, I'm fine with it. Otherwise, no.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    90% of taste is smell. Hold your nose and taste something.

    ps. From the first link: ginseng tastes like patchouli and rosemary tastes like pine sol.
