SMOK Guardian E-Pipe 2 Mod Review
Inside the packaging, you only get the Mod unit and there is no drip tip or clearomizer/tank included so if you want it to look like a complete pipe then these will need to be purchased separately.
It is made from stainless steel and real wood for that classic look of a traditional pipe and it does feel solidly built.
It requires 1 x 18350 battery so you will need to purchase this separately and have an appropriate charger. The downside is that the battery does not last very long and the 18350 batteries do take a few hours to charge so might be worth having a spare one as well.
The wattage on the pipe can be adjusted from 6.0 to 15.0 Watts in increments of 1.0. It is adjusted using the dial and you need to click the fire button 3 times to switch between higher wattage and lower wattage as demonstrated in the video. It has a minimum resistance of 1.0 so this would not be suitable for Sub Ohm vaping.
You can click the fire button 5 times to turn the device on and off. There is an 8 second cut off time for the fire button and again the LED lights will flash to warn you.
If the battery voltage is lower than 3.3 volts then the White LED will flash 15 times to warn you that it needs charging.
Average UK price around £55 for the standalone Mod.
The best part of the SMOK Guardian E-Pipe II Mod is that it really does simulate holding a real pipe and with the right e-Liquid it could help the older generation to quit traditional pipe tobacco.
