Vapmod Tech just hit the market with their new line of oil vaporizers. Their 510 thread batteries are designed for use with CBD vape and THC oil cartridges. They also have a few dab pens available. Today we are testing out the Pipe 710, a pocket-sized folding e-pipe for CBD and THC oil. It also comes with an empty 0.5 mL CCELL tank but is designed for use with all 510-compatible oil cartridges.
We’ve come a long way since the early pen-style batteries. Many of the new devices look very different and have added features. Let’s have a look at the Pipe 710 to see what advantages it offers over the previous technology.

The Pipe 710 is compact enough to disappear in your hand. Its design allows you to use it in a number of ways using your thumb or index finger to fire it. You can adjust the angle of your cartridge, or keep it vertical when it’s not in use. It isn’t much less conspicuous than a pen battery, but it does look pretty darn classy. At 58 grams, it’s lighter than a typical vape mod and bit heavier than a standard pod vape. It seems to be the perfect size for vaping CBD and THC oil cartridges.
The device utilizes a magnetic 510 adapter that screws on to the tank. It’s pretty convenient for popping your cartridge in and out quickly. It includes an optional shield that screws on and protects your tank, but it is only for aesthetics. I prefer the way it looks without it, and the tank still sits firmly in the base of the device.
The build quality appears to be decent. It’s by no means a high-end mod, but it doesn’t feel like a toy either. I have only been using the Pipe 710 for about a week but I haven’t experienced any issues. Its 900 mAh battery has lasted me through a full gram-sized (1 mL) cartridge, right out the box without even charging it! It takes about two and a half hours to reach a full charge once the battery is depleted.

I have had bad experiences with magnetic 510 connections, but I can’t really complain about this one. It hasn’t failed to maintain a solid connection, even without the optional outer shield. I like how you can just drop the cartridge in and vape. Be careful not to lose the adapter though or you won’t be able to use the device. It would be nice if they included a spare in the package.
The fire button lights up with LEDs when you press it, which looks cool, but you barely see it when your thumb is covering it. It also has a nice clicky feel to it. When you initiate pre-heat mode, the lights begin to breath and cycle through a variety of colors, which looks neat. When it’s cold, your oil may thicken up, so this comes in handy for that. It sends a constant 1.8 volts to the coil to heat the oil up.
I mostly used the Pipe 710 on the third heat setting. For me, it was the perfect voltage for a satisfying hit that wasn’t overwhelming. Keep in mind, the higher settings will deplete your oil faster, but provide a more intense hit. The lower options conserve your oil better, but they won’t hit as hard.
To my surprise, the device actually worked with a few wax atomizers that I tested. It isn’t made for this purpose, so I don’t recommend it, but it is possible. I had a rather successful experience vaping live resin in a tank attached to the Pipe 710. I used it on the third heat setting with a ceramic atomizer tank and it worked fine.
Overall, the Pipe 710 offers significant advantages over your typical stick batteries. It provides more vaping time, micro USB charging capabilities, preheat functionality, adjustable voltage and an original form factor.
The only features I would have liked to see added would be some type of battery life indication and faster charging abilities — fortunately, you can still vape it while charging. It would have also been nice if they included a spare magnetic adapter.
The Pipe 710 was easy and enjoyable to use. It worked with all of my 510 oil carts and dab tanks. If you’re looking for an upgrade from your standard oil pen and you are into the aesthetics of a traditional pipe, check out the Pipe 710 by Vapmod Tech.
