    Default Kanger Protank grommets

    Where can I get some of the grommets that go on the bottom of the head?

    Not the silicone ones that slip on top of the 'flavor tube.'

    I need some of the white(ish) rubber ones that slip into the bottom and ground the negative wire. Of course, if the ones I find are made of silicone, that'd be even better!

    I ordered what I thought were the right ones from Kidney Puncher, but they don't fit.

    Anyone know who has them?

    Do you mean the white ones at the bottom?



    I examined those awhile ago and I'm not sure they would sell replacements. They don't seem elastic enough, if you know what I mean. I don't have one in front of me, but I seem to recall being left with the impression that it might be a strip of something similar to plumber's tape. That said, I wonder if dental rubber bands would be small enough?

    The person you should ask is Edward at Sun-Vapers, he was a design consultant for Kanger when the Protank was being developed.

    I've read these will work as a plug replacement for the Protank heads. AGA Series Positive Post Insulators - 10 pack - Kidney Puncher

    Haven't tried it, so can't vouch for the accuracy of the statement.

    Good find I took apart some old tank I had used the insulators I find it good to pull parts like that and O-rings before a chuck stuff.

    Those are the ones I tried previously. They are too big to fit into the hole on the bottom of the head assembly. They can be forced in, but they get squished to the point that the positive post doesn't fit.

    Thanks for the replies!

    No, they're more than just a strip of something. They are cylindrical insulators with a small side that slides into the assembly.
    I'll contact Edward at Sun-Vapers. I'll tell him "the Ocelot sent me." Maybe I'll get a discount!

    Thanks for the info!

    LOL! That won't do you any good. He doesn't know my handle. He is obsessed passionate when it comes to the products he's involved with, if anyone can help you he can.

    Since it's not the white strip thingy, I'm still unclear what you're talking about. Is it the clear-ish gasket (rubber bandy) doohicky just under the lip/flat part/whatever above the strip thingy? I apologize if my techno-speak is too advanced for you.

    Wait, I think maybe I know what you mean. I didn't realize it went inside. Do you mean like these?

    Ok...this is my first ever attempt at posting a pic in one of these posts, so bear with me...
    This is what I'm talking about...Kanger Protank grommets-image.jpg

    It slips inside the bottom of the assembly, then the positive post thingy gets inserted into it...and you thought you were the only one who knew techno-speak.
