An incredible simulation
My father's 70th birthday is coming up, and he's smoked a pipe for all of my life.  I've noticed him coughing a bit more than usual lately, so I wanted to see if I could convince him to transition to vaping.  I'm looking to recreate his pipe-smoking experience as close as possible, so I started looking to see if his brand of pipe tobacco (Borkum Riff) had any kind of cartridges available - no luck that I can find.

So, a few questions:

1. Does anyone have experience using Borkum Riff tobacco?
2. If so, can you recommend any cartridges that most closely approximate it?  (I'd guess that there's probably ways you can make your own juice from tobacco you purchase elsewhere, but since the goal is to make things as seamless as possible for my dad, I'd like to rule that out for the moment.)
3. Are there any batteries out there closely resemble a pipe?
4. Any other suggestions or advice in general?

Thanks!

RE: An incredible simulation
There are simulated pipe vaping mods that have everything you need built in. They are larger than a normal pipe though as it is hard to fit the neccesary components into that small of a frame. We have a gentleman here who builds custom vaping pipes. As far as flavoring goes, its very hard to emulate the taste of tobacco in e liquid imo. Maybe someone with more experience will chime in.

RE: An incredible simulation
I've seen a couple of pipe mods that are the normal size of a pipe. My local b and m has one for sure. I'll try to stop in there soon and find out what it's called for you bud. Is the pipe tobacco he smokes flavored at all or just straight tobacco? Bob is the member here that builds pipes and they are amazing works of craftsmanship/art. I'm not sure if he sells them beauties but, id sure like to know myself. Big Grin

RE: An incredible simulation
Hello ian, nice gesture and we will certainly try and help. Where in the USA does he reside? We can do some of the legwork for you and maybe even suggest a local shop that would provide technical support....if he's comfortable with PCs, he can always join our forum and we would/will provide virtual assistance....folks new to vaping (like anything new) often require either technical assistance or set-up, operating help...

RE: An incredible simulation
I would recommend something like Bob's Brogue pipe

For the ejuice, I would strongly recommend contacting these guys http://www.realextracts.com/ They're experts in naturally extracted tobacco flavours, with a ton of knowledge that would be invaluable to what you're looking for.

He's in the Philadelphia area - Bucks County, PA.  I doubt he'd be up for joining the forum, at least not right out of the gate, but I'll let him know.

RE: An incredible simulation
There are a selection of vape shops in Bucks County.

I asked about local shops as although you can purchase gear online, having a local shop he can visit and ask questions and sample difference e-juice, etc.. would be beneficial to him.
