UKV Classifieds – cheers Vapingplate )
P+P: 2.75 GBP
Aimed At: Epipe users
Batteries: Fits onto all standard eGo/ Echo type batteries
Button Position: best on Auto’s – Manuals button on the top of the shaft
Size: About the size of a standard pipe bowl – L59.9 x W45.8 x H40
Weight: Roughly 21.5g
Material: ABS plastic – Pb, Hg and Cd free
Will it Roll: Flat bottomed so stops eGo batteries rolling away
Standing up: No but lies flat easily
Aesthetics: Actually quite good – nice rubberised feel to the ‘bowl’.
What is it?
The Kuwako is an accessory that fits on the end of most eGo/Echo batteries to simulate using an epipe. Whilst it seems to be more aimed at Auto batteries, it will function with Manual ones too - tho this will mean holding it by the 'stem' rather than the bowl.
How does it Vape?[FONT=Helvetica Neue]Firing: No problems with Auto batteries – not so keen with manual button
Vapour Production: depends on the Miser and juice used
How does it Feel: Feels very good in the hand
Ease of Change: Pop out battery and just reinsert a fresh one
SummaryMisses: Not so good with Manual batteries for me – but OK
Can look a bit ‘weird’ depending on the Miser used
Hits: Works very well with Stardust/Vision eGo’s as they wick very
well when held horizontally.
Gives another dimension to eGo/Echo battery use
Feels very good in the hand
Excellent for that ‘Intellectual’ look
Adds the ability to gesticulate and empahasise points whilst
Adds a usability factor for those that may have ‘gripping’ issues
due to incapacity – arthritis etc.
Usability: I’ve really been enjoying using this – even tho I’ve been
called the ‘Electric Grandad’
My Stardust’s are working at their best, and my Echo Auto
Batteries (with 901 Stardusts) have really come into their own
Makes finding eGo batteries so much easier – they are more
Visible with the Kuwacko attached and, for a change, likely to
Be in the same place I left them too
The Waffle…I received the Kuwako and a Neo Auto battery from VapingPlate via the Classifieds for a bargain price - so thought as a Fan of auto batteries it would be worth a try. To say I’ve been surprised at how much I’ve enjoyed using it would be an understatement – I now can’t imagine using my Auto batteries without it!
For some reason, when using the Kuwako, those juices that I previously thought of as too ‘harsh’ for me have become enjoyable – maybe the expectation of a pipe experience?
Overall[FONT=Helvetica Neue]As mentioned, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Kuwako. Before using it I’d thought it was a daft idea – sticking an ‘expensive’ lump of plastic on the end of a perfectly good ecig
Having been using it for the last few days, my opinion has changed to the Kuwako being an excellent piece of innovation and easily transforms an eGo battery into a more than passable epipe – with the option of swapping back at any time.
So overall, if thee already have eGo/Echo batteries – especially Auto’s – have fancied trying an epipe, or have issues gripping them – I’d Highly Recommend the Kuwako as a cheap way of adding to or enhancing, thy Vaping experience before ordering one of Mikro's pipes
