No comment on electronic pipes. No idea about them, actually.
As for storage, jars, jars, jars. A friend and I did independent tests on various vacuum packing methods, and both came to the same conclusion. They don't do the right thing. Plastics are either high barrier to moisture, or they're high barrier to non-polar molecules, but they don't do both well. The foil bags I once used for the 8oz packaging were four layer films, and they worked very well, but nobody liked them, so I went to tins. But, the consumer products just don't work well.
Jars are a great solution. They're cheap. They're reusable. They seal very well. You can open them and grab a bowl, and put the lid back on knowing that next time, the tobacco will still be in good condition. The work every time. Apart from the original tins, there is nothing better.
