    Hi all,

    I just got my mini pipe and I'm having sort of a bittersweet experience. I really love this thing because it is really cool. However, it seems like the pre-filled carts that it comes with produce more vapor than filling it up myself (I'm filling it up all the way). It is probably because the prefilled carts have glycerin which leads me to look for a better atomizer.

    I've read these 10 pages but got quite lost. Which brand atomizer are you guys using? What made me lost was how the different color atomizers from puresmoker performed differently.

    I know that all 801 attys are different so which suppliers did you buy them from? I need some desperate help!

    I didn't want to start another thread but I'm just wondering which way is the correct way to put the batteries in the charger. My charger came with no markings.

    Put the positive end of the battery (notched end) toward the led on the charger.

    OK.. The mini-pipe is not a good product. That's all there is to it.

    I take excellent care of mine, always use fully charged batteries, never over fill it etc etc..
    It just doesn't perform anymore. The lifespan of these things is like a week and a half. If you've had it working for months, you're doing some kind of mod. All in all, don't buy this thing it's a waste of money.

    Hi - newbie here
    Bought a lady er mini pipe about 6 weeks back after reading around subject and seeing it seemed to be more useable than most options in terms of vape and battery. Spotted problem that atomizers might not last long so bought an extra spare and an 801 as well. Found the 801 I got was not as good. Was surprised to find the first pipe atomizer I got is still going strong all this time after with no sign of problems. All I do is blow it and stand it on its end now and then. Not a heavy vaper as yet - still using analogues some of the time (easing up to making the transition!). Anyway that is my experience. :)

    A month tomorrow on the mini pipe with no real cigarettes or tobacco products. I am still using the same atomiser. I love it.

    Do the 801 atomisers fit it or not????

    I get confused

    I'm on the same atty with mine as well. I don't blow it out, I don't even unscrew it.

    To answer your question - some 801 attys work (apparently), but some don't. Seems to be the way the air holes line up.

    Anywhere else to get atomizers? Checked Rockymountain and out of stock, Eastmall won't ship unless you order $50 worth of stuff. I'm new to this and have the 601 pipe as well, but love the mini for its portability.

    Hey guys, I just tried an 801 atty on my lady pipe after reading this thread. I got mine from ruyandirect.com. I noticed there is more flavor and vapor from the 801. I did have to file the end of the 801 atty a bit so that it could make contact. Thanks for the tip!

    On another note, I tried the lady pipe atty on a 801 battery. It gave poor performance. Thus concluding that 801 atty is great for the Lady Pipe.

    First post on the forum as I'm returning the NJOY NPRO to Costco as soon as the mini-pipe ordered from EastMall arrives. Also ordered the 20 flavor e-liquid pack with spare atty, blank carts & extra atom. Was going to order the DSE601 but as a newbie light analog smoker decided on the less expensive model. So far I'm impressed with EastMall as it took less than 3 hours for receipt of shipment & tracking email. Will post again after delivery :rolleyes:

    When I tried the 801 atty for the mini pipe...I was certain I found my PV of choice! Can't wait for my be112 attys! Thanks for the heads up maskgeek!

    Eastmall, as expected, delivered my Mini yesterday, only 5 business days after order was received by David in China. Batteries must have been charged prior to shipping as they took far less than 3-4 hours to charge. Not sure about the instruction manual's usefullness as it spends more time explaining what the e-cig is instead of how to use it properly. As far as the vape is concerned I'm not getting a consistent throat & steam hit. I even loaded the cart with as much e-liquid as it could take but no change. Perhaps a break in time frame?:confused:

    That might be adding to your problem. Others have said that carts which are too moist dont vape well.

    Yes, I thought about that but then the question is how many drops is best for a clean cart & or a used one? As a rookie vaperer I'm kind of winging it picking up tips on occasion here. :|

    I made the mistake of pulling out the cart filler to wash it out and refill with my favourite juice. It was only then that I noticed that the filler had been glued to the cart (to stop it slipping out and sticking to the atty) and I have now lost that bond. Straight away, the filler was sticking to the atty bridge (something which I know can be a problem with the mini pipe).

    Hi,

    I have used the mini pipe before. The best is to put a few drops about 3~4 drops onto the cartridge and 2 drops onto the atty, if it is new. Let it sit a while and try puffing. Give a few primer puffs if you are on auto, it will give ample vapor and great throat hit. In order to get good TH and vapor, you need freshly charged batteries. If it is too wet or flooded, it won't work that well.

    After sometime with experience, you will roughly know how much to fill in to get a good smoke out of it. Anyway, I still miss my pipe, as I only have a single atomizer which died on me. The fun ended. I'm waiting to get new atomizer but this will take sometime as shipping cost is expensive for just a mere few atty... Even my KR808 doesn't give this amount of vapor, but has a good TH. Waiting for the megaladon..

    Regards,
    Jay
