So I have always wanted an E-Pipe. They look so cool.


Does anyone here have one? Is it any different whatsoever from a SD MkII or eGo C?

The E-pipe is a nice unit Shez
It  pretty well made. Uses cartomisers which is good to see. Previous versions when the atomiser went you had to get a whole new bowl.

Only difference between it and the Tornado/Screwdriver is you can only use the cartomisers made for it. They do have a 510 connector so it it possible to fit some other non pipe atties in there if you don't mind doing some fitting.

With the other two devices you can use what ever atomiser/cartomiser you want.

The liquid that comes with the prefilled cartos is really not that great. Seems to be the same liquid in the Disposable Cigars and Microlite ...... mystery juice at best.
TW should have empty cartomisers available for it and the E-Cigar soon.

Whats in there though really does not come out too easy..... thought I could just blow it out and fill with my own....... that prefilled taste still lingers though and it's getting on my nerves.

Interesting. I really do want one, but I wouldn't put a tobacco flavor in it. I used tobacco flavors when I first switched, and now I find most tobacco tastes revolting (RY4 is still delicious). If they release empty cartos for it, I'll certainly buy one.


Does it draw any differently from an eGo C or SD? It appears to use identical batteries to the SD, which is nice, since I have six already.

The draw is on par with a Ego C.

Surprisingly the bowl is made out of wood...... It's not plastic painted to look like wood.

Yep i have one and have altered it slightly to take Ce's and Mega Cartos. They are pretty good but quite heavy to hold in the mouth. I can just about manage to clench mine in my teeth for a few minutes but have been sucking on pipes for many years, so got use to the weight of some, quite large pipes.
I think these TECC pipes are much better then the DSE601, which i have had two and both failed very quickly. Try one, they are cheap enough and a good piece of kit if you like pipes you wont go far wrong with the TECC.

You have to condition your jaw muscles.

It's not that heavy

I have to admit that I want one of these but I'm held back both by the price and the fact that I've only used a pipe once
and I'm not sure I'd use it anywhere but at home.

I've got one of these and it's amazing :)
I was very tempted to get the old DSE-601 when TECC sold them but was put off by the maintenance cost (replacing the bowl when the atty went!)
The cartomisers are pretty long lasting and can be easily refilled. I actually like the flavour of the carts (but I vape mainly tobacco flavours anyway) and the battery is the same as the one in the SD
For me, the most impressive feature is the auto-switch - it works incredibly well and helps make the experience of vaping the e-pipe to be very similar to that of smoking a tobacco pipe.
I have a lot of different devices (Tornado, SD MK II, Microlite and a couple from another manufacturer) and find I use them all depending on my mood: My e-pipe is for those times when I want to sit and chill out and just enjoy vaping - for that purpose, there's nothing that even comes close

I have been smoking a tobacco pipe for 60 years and now find the TECC pipe marvelous! My Lancaster shop helped me select a suitable fluid which is Cherry Mint. I recently discovered a crack in the bowl stem but it still works. My shop arranged for a replacement bowl to be sent FOC within 3 days! You can't fault that kind of service!
I have been refilling the ready charged atomizers and everything is going great. My lungs have cleared and my sense of smell has returned. Well done TW! Graham Lambden
