    so i purchased a mini pipe from a private party , IE: not an online vendor and all 5 of the atomizers i got dont really work. i have 1 that is amazing really pumps out the vapor and the other 4 are so so. Not horrible but not satisfying.

    i know that 801 , RN , and kissbox atomizers wont work on it... which ones will? I'm still waiting for this thing to blow me away

    All the mini pipe atomizers I have had, worked absolutely brilliantly.....for a few days......and after that they just became rubbish within a week but I didn't get any that worked badly when they were brand new.....perhaps the guy sent you atty's that have been returned! I have given up with the mini pipe because of the atomizers but if they had given a reasonable life I would have recommended the mini pipe to anyone.

    I too am interested if there is another atty that will just simply screw on to the mini pipe and work ok without any modding because I do like the mini pipe for it's size and convenience. It would certainly be the thing I would take out with me if I could get a decent atomizer for it.

    Hi ted.....My RN 4072 attys won't work on the mini pipe without any modification to the pipe connector it'self as well as the atty.

    those Janty's cost about £12 each don't they?...with the lifespan I get from attys that scares me.....I am not a one for making claims on the guarantee's.

    i have not actually tried this myself , i only remember Parked saying that the Janty Kissbox atomizers wont work on the mini pipe. If they for sure do i would gladly pick one up... if they do that is...

    Hi Pete,
    I think the problem you are having is a bad bowl. I previously believed the bowls either worked or obviously didn't, with no in between. In your case, I think the bowl is working, but incorrectly, and killing your attys. I haven't had any go bad, still using originals. Two bowls are toast tho. Replacements should be here tomorrow, and I'll be curious to see if any are atty killers, lol!

    Curious about atom replacement. Would everyone please post what color bowl you have, and which atoms (color and model) worked, needed modification, or didn't work? I think there might be something in common.
    Thanks!

    Hi redrose
    I am sure open to any possibility but it's really hard to see how the bowl could be anything to do with it...but I will be interested to know if you have problems with your atties with a different bowl.

    Just so folks understand the TAWA atomizers and the KBC atomizers are the exact same thing. The only difference is the TAWA atomizers only have a 14 day warranty and the KBC atomizers have a 3 month warranty.

    They laser print TAWA on the side of the atomizer for identification purposes.

    My experience is exactly that of Pete's....they are without a doubt the best vaping atos out there....but I killed 11 in 35 days of vaping. I tried besecig atomizers....they work but nowhere near as good as the minipipe atos. I don;t know if the bowl is the problem or the atos. But I had two minipipes from two different suppliers.

    Ted...Do the janty atos perform just as well as the minipipe atos?

    Has anyone modified these and tried to make them work with 801 batteries? I like the minipipe but the whole device makes no sense at all. Yes the batteries are cheaper to replace....but not really. However, if the switch fails they are expensive to replace. So the combination of switch and battery replacement is very expensive. It would make more sense to use them with the 801 batteries.

    GrimmGreen, I have used the 801 atomizers from eastmall with great success on my mini pipe.

    Are you purchasing the mini-pipe attys from eastmall? ...Or are you referring to eastmall's regular 801 attys. I've also noted The Widow sells attys marked specifically for the mini-pipe. I am trying to find out if the Royal Smokers branded attys (oem) are available also. Anyone know?

    EDIT - these PVs are so nice I want to make them last forever.
