    Hello everyone. I'm looking for a Pyrex/Glass/Metal clearo type tank (non-carto) to match my black matte mini eGo battery for stealth/size purposes.

    Looking for something around 14 mm in diameter, and around 65 mm in length (drip tip included). Black in color.

    So far, the best, smallest, I could come up with is the Vision Mini Vivi Nova with Black Aluminum tube.

    MINI Vision Vivi Nova Tank System - Metal Tube

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Kemo! The dimensions of the Aro might be a little big. This is what I am getting from the SMOK website:

    79 mm x 15.5mm

    Pyrex Aro Tank 2.5ml

    If it doesn't HAVE to be glass, what about this?

    Black iSmoka Mini BCC

    I know the Mega has been getting decent reviews, but haven't heard much either way about the Mini. At any rate the black body should match your matte black eGo.

    mini davide or mini protank would work, but what gets me is the notion that 2.5ml is an "all day vape"! in my house that amount is called "before noon vape"............ oh yeah, I sleep late.......

    Standard Black Evod

    Oops, you said Glass.

    Aero would be my choice for best look.

    +1 on mini davides. I love those things. More than my mini ptanks. I've been slowly replacing all my evods with Davides.

    it may get decent reviews but I have never gotten a consistant vape from the ismoka/vapeonly clearo. their coils don't screw in they press fit and I have always gotten juice drawing up the center post. I have two (clear and smoked-large size not mini) if anybody wants them pm me and I will gladly send them to you.......

    Mini protank is 14mm wide but about 75mm tall. A mini protank 2v2, however, has a replaceable drip tip, so I've got mine down to 69mm.

    If you like the Vivi Nova, My Vapor Store has a new glass version. It's called the Glass V-Fate Vision Nova, and comes in 2.0 and 3.5 ml.

    Although not yet listed on the website, IBTanked will soon be offering a 15mm outer diameter cartotank made of pyrex and stainless steel caps.

    OCD was kind enough to send me some prototypes to try out last week. These are the same high quality glass tanks with stainless steel end caps as the other tanks offered at IBTanked. You can view an image of the prototypes here on IBTanked's supplier forum: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/e-cigarette-suppliers-forum/339809-do-you-fiddle-your-thingy-154.html#post10628725


    Here's what is listed on the website FAQ page:

    "Q: What type of cartomizer fits the tanks?

    A:
    Any XL (45mm) 510 Cartomizer should fit our XL tanks.
    Any Standard (35mm) 510 Cartomizer should fit our Standard tanks.
    Mini (19.8mm) Cartomizers, aka HalfLing, will fit our HalfLing Tanks.
    We have had HalfLing Cartomizers made especially for us with 2 holes and a Flange like our other popular SmokTech Cartomizers. Note that the holes have been lowered 3mm and may not work in tanks with thicker caps than IBTanks. Boge cartomizers are often listed without the thread length so you may see 40mm and 30mm for XL and Standard on those.

    Q: Are there any other types of caps.

    A: We have Both Stainless Steel and Anodized Aluminum. We are adding more choices as we can.

    Q: What length do the tubes come in?

    A: The tubes are 0.60", 1.21" and 1.57" for the HalfLing, Standard and XL respectively. They finish out with the caps and washer nicely on both Standard and XL Cartomizers almost flush on the ends.

    Q: What is the ID and OD of the tubes.

    A:
    15mm tubes are 15mm OD and 12.6mm ID
    19mm tubes are 19mm OD and 14mm ID
    22mm tubes are 22mm OD and 17mm ID
    25mm tubes are 25.4mm OD and 20.4mm ID"

    No, but OCD gives updates on their progress on the supplier forum that I linked to above. They were recently off attending a vape convention for a few days, and likely are now getting caught up on orders that were made while away.

    Thank you! I just read through the last couple of pages of that thread (starting with the post you linked to, above). No updates there on the "Tiny Tanks" yet, but dang if my money isn't burning a hole in my pocket. I guess I will just have to keep stalking.

    Learning that IBTanked is making the 15mm, and that the whole setup will be around $50 (if I read that right), has made me unreasonably happy. :banana:

    Not sure where you read that, but my guess is the tanks will be between $20 - 30 like the rest of their tanks.

    It was in the post from OCD that you linked to, the one with the pictures of the 15mm tanks. The estimated $50 "kit" OCD mentioned would include a battery and a charger, it seems.

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm not interested in plastic or a carto style tank.

    I want something either glass or metal. Matte black in color and same width as an eGo battery but shorter than my Mini Davide.

    Can anyone confirm the dimensions of the Vision Mini Vivi Nova with stock drip tip, a vendor has indicated the following:

    69 mm length (including threads), 14.25 mm diameter.,

    It also says "Tank Type: Clear PlasticTube/Stainless Fittings."
