Found them on Alibaba price $2-$5 but the vendors prices will be significantly higher I would imagine, import costs, taxes and profit margines to be considered...........tempted to think about a group buy (too much strees involved though)

They look interesting - probably end up at a similar price to the Vision Nova Tank.

If so, deffo worth a purchase.

I'm sure some vendors will sell them for £10 and postage,
but as its a rebuildable I think many wont be keen.
They have a vested interest in disposable attys.

A group buy when the MOQ is 200 would be a big challenge!

It has a 6ml capacity aparrently.

I've sent an email requesting a price for 200 delivered london.

Assuming the price is the top end ($5.70 each), by the time they have added the freight cost, then add import duty, VAT and delivery to a UK address, allowing for 5% DOA, I reckon the cost per piece will come to about £6.18, say £6.50.

A group buy might work if there was a minimum quantity of say 3 - 5 each per punter, that way we only need to find 40 - 67 punters :o

Alternatively we could approach one of the UK vendors and come to some arrangement, maybe buy the balance or summink.

Just a thought.

Here we go.

I receivd this email today -

Thanks for your inquiry,the shipping fee to UK  is USD131,the products feee is 200*5.7=1140
      the total ammount=1140+131=USD1271
    what else can i do for you?

I can ask whether they will supply 100 (although the website says a min of 200), but I guess we need to decide if we are going to do it. I don't want to get them all excited for no reason  :P

Post by: Stewrat on July 08, 2012, 01:04:03 PM
Min order of 100 or 200 would take a fair bit of coordinating as a group buy.

This however, may be doable -

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/591863482/Bully_atomizer_tank_system.html (http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/591863482/Bully_atomizer_tank_system.html)

Min order 20. Too good to be true? Maybe, would need to check the company etc.

One thing that worries me a bit - the product description has it as a 'Sex Product - DIY'  :o

We wouldn't want to mix THAT order up  :o Although it would be interesting to see Scott's review  ;D

Min quantity of 20 (assuming that is units, not boxes) is pretty small.

To get them branded we would probably need to order a lot more than 20.

We might be able to get a lower quantity of Rabbits branded though  :P

I thought they were made by Ann Summers?  :P

I am going to check the Ann Summers site to see if they sell rebuildable attys - that's my excuse ::)

Anyway, how do you know so much about it Fiona?

Shipping to the UK is US$10 per order and their stuff takes around 7-10 days but could be longer due to Olympic post delays.

Mine arrived this morning, the premade wick and wire was not very good. I replaced the coil and the wick with one I made using .20 nichrome and 1mm bulli wick (wick holes are pretty small. The result is better than the original and wicks well enough. I was thinking of trying a u shaped mesh wick but will have to drill out the holes a little I think.  :D

Yes fiddly could be used to describe it, but the tank pulls off easy enough (when attatched to a mod) the screws no worse than a bulli.

The shipping is actually 10 dollars.

Just a thought though, the UK postage is £2.70 / US Dols 4.30 first class (not sure what the second class cost is). So if we split the shipping cost, then add the UK post on, we are back up to just under 10 dollars, plus a day or two extra delivery time by the time it gets to you. So not much of a saving, unless I send to you second class

Send me a PM if you would like to go ahead. I will put it off my order until about 10pm this evening.

By the way, there is a discount code - 5off - that I use. Not sure if there is a minimum order value.

I re wicked mine, used .20 nichrome around looped 1mm wick and put the single wick down each hole and it is wicking much better than the supplied wick and coil. I might drill out the holes when I try a mesh u shaped wick as the holes are too small at the moment.

I think that it is not bad for a very cheap rebuildble tank, but it will need tweaking in order to work
Title: Re: New Smok tank--check it out
Post by: chilly on August 02, 2012, 10:07:22 AM
i suppose if you can drill the holes out a bit and use some 2mm bulli wick might work better
