    Has anyone managed to find replacement silicone grommets/caps/thingys for the Protank 3/Aerotank or Protank Mini 2 v2 attie heads? Seems a waste to through away the whole head just because I lost a grommet down the sink (again). I've searched & come up with nothing.

    I too was wondering about the Mini Protank and for the Davide King tank. The removable drip tip on the Davide has two grommets, and if you lose one, which apparently is very easy to do, the tip becomes useless. There is also a donut shaped silicon thing between the cap and the center post that on mine was split and stretched after I took it apart a few times. These things are so easy to lose! I thought there would be a few vendors who carried them, but no luck so far. Of course I'm not familiar with even a fraction of the suppliers out there. Maybe a niche market for some savvy entrepreneur?

    Some websites sell them too, I just looked but I can't remember the last one I saw.

    I did find the ebay one jammy listed above by typing Protank silicone and then looking at google images.

    Hey JamJar,

    Have you tried using that attie head without that top cap?

    When I used to rebuild the heads for my PT 2 Mini, I noticed that I could get away with not using them, and it was actually better not to use them for higher VG juices, where I noticed less dry hits and better flavo(u)r.

    Cheers

    No disaster struck when I tried that. If they aren't wedged firmly on it all goes pear shaped. Last time I got e-Liquid leaking on my new dress.

    No, but thank you, that will probably help someone :) No the little cap that sits on the atomiser head post, on top of the wicks.

    P.S That motorbike is yummy!
