With the exception of the Genuine E3D v6 & the Genuine E3D Lite6 the replacement hotends listed below are not necessarily recommended replacement options, i.e., they will theoretically work but the quality may vary. These are not the only options available. These should give you a good idea of what to look for. Please do your research or ask the community about their experience.
Some of the options listed below will require updating the firmware's thermistor value using the custom G-code command "M561 P1". If you do change the thermistor type/value you will need to run PID Autotune. If you are able to reuse the Select Mini's original thermistor it is STILL recommended to run PID Autotune
