    They look cute. Not much info on the website...such as what size they are. They look about 22mm or maybe bigger?

    Haven't seen any reviews on these.

    I've not used these specific tanks, but I have used grommet tanks from other manufacturers in the past. Not my cup of tea, especially at those prices. I much prefer metal (stainless steel or anodized aluminum) end caps for the ease of their setup and refilling the tank. Just my :2c:

    Yeah...I've always wondered about those grommet tanks. Seems like the flixibility of the silicone would actually make refilling them a bit more difficult.

    With IBtanked making quality tanks at very reasonable prices, I'd just grab a tank or two from them. I have eight and honestly don't even look elsewhere. Just my opinion, they are very hard to beat.

    Actually... I have 4 IBTanked's and I love them! I was just a little curious about these because they're cute.

    I hadn't seen those before. Very pretty.

    But, I have a question. What's the point of them being glass if the endcaps are 'food grade silicone'? Is silicone less likely to be damaged than polycarbonate? Is it more like polypropylene maybe?


    ETA: I just asked about the silicone in the Ikenvape forum. I'll let you know what they say.

    OK. They didn't respond on their forum so I emailed them instead. Here's the answer:
