    @acorn the OP is also a local store. My real issue is the OP links to a place that describes a Frankenskull mechanical box mod as follows:

    Key Features...
    • Extraordinary FrankenSkull design sets this box mod kit apart from all its competition
    • Fill up its massive 6.2ml tank with the e-liquid of your liking
    • 510 thread makes the box mod compatible with the vast majority of RTAs out there
    • Easy to use and affordable e-cig suitable for advanced and beginning vapers alike


    FRANKENSKULL STYLED MECHANICAL MOD KIT

    These guys need to be sued!

    Regards

    Agree with you on the OP vendor, the vendor I mentioned is well known (though not an ECIGSSA vendor) and personally have visited their B & M shop in Pretoria, doubt that it would be a clone.

    Hi @acorn, I have no trouble with it being a clone but them stating this mech mod being beginner friendly and can be used with the vast majority of RTA's is nothing short of reckless endangerment. How many have they sold? How many potential disasters are there in the making out there?

    I shudder to think...

    Back to the question at hand.

    Would it be worth it to purchase the pipe mod, and would i be able to use a nautilis mini as yhe atomizer on it?

    Personally for that price I think it would be worth a try. There's a good chance it's a POS but then you haven't lost much money if it is.

    I think it comes with a removable 8350 battery, so if you're worried about that you could probably replace it with something from a safer vendor.

    Yes you can use the Nautilus Mini on it.

    Awesome, thank you for the feedback.

    I shall purchase, and see how she goes.
    The misses will provide a solid pipe tobacco e-liquid and i have a few good books to go with it for some night time reading.

    The only thing that actually does stop me from ordering off sites like this is I assume they then order it from China, it takes a week or a year to get to you, and I'm not sure on the return process.

    I know a the ladies in my office have taken to buying stuff off Wish. They get these parcels, the stuff rarely looks like what they've bought, but because it's so cheap they don't mind taking the risk. But they have spent thousands between them and yet to receive something they can use! :-D

    They claim "local stock" so will see how long shipping will be.

    I also tried wish (6 fidget spinner) took forever to get here. My son smaaks the the spinners though, so no complaints there...

    Hoping its all legit, and is not a complete POS mod, but as you advised, at the price point, it is worth a shot to see if pipe vaping might be a niche i like (like a pico squeeze of pipe mods)

    On this topic. I’ve got a old smok alien mod. Its a bit broke casing wise but perfect functionality wise. I want to use its componets to build a e pipe but Im struggling with a slim design consisting of two 18650 batteries. Will a 26650 batt work but just have a shorter batt life?
