This e-pipe lark is turning out to be more fun than I expected.
Part of the pipe is the cartridge. It’s a little open ended tube that contains foam which is soaked in a liquid. A heating element then heats the foam and vapourises the liquid.
Unlike my other pipes, I can’t just nip down to the shop and buy myself a pack of baccy, which is one of the new yoke’s drawbacks. If I run out of smoke, I have to replace the cartridge, and you can only buy them on the Interweb. I have an order in for a crate, and am waiting on delivery any day.
However, it occurred to me that it would be simpler if I could just replace the liquid, instead of replacing the whole cartridge, so I did a search on the Interweb to see if anyone is as intelligent as me, and surprisingly I found that some other genius has come up with the same idea. You can buy bottles of the liquid which makes life cheaper and simpler.
This is where my problems started though.
You see, they don’t just sell the liquid. They sell the liquid in different flavours.
If I want to, I can smoke banana. Or lilac? Would you fancy a puff of grapefruit? I’m not joking. There is chocolate or coffee. A smoke of some Red Bull to start the day? How about some melon?
Now, all I want is tobacco. Ordinary plain pipe tobacco. There are flavours called ‘French pipe’ and ‘Virginia’ so that may be my solution [pun intended]?
I mentioned the nice people in E-Cigarette Direct before, and once again they are coming up trumps. They are going to order some samples for me to try out.
Further on down the line, I may try some experiments of my own.
Why not kill two birds with one stone?
A pipefull of Guinness?
