    The MicroSticks's bodies are back from anodising!
    We got the first butch of 100 MicroSticks and all extenders.
    The MicroSticks's bodies will soon pass the engraving. Meanwhile we hope that the bottom caps will also arrive from anodising.
    So before we can start the shipping, we need to get the bottom caps.
    The extenders need just a conductor to be ready for shipping.
    The MiniGens SS and Ti are also almost ready. They can be blocked by engraving, but we hope that on the next week we will be able to start shipping.
    Several MicroSticks are still available for pre-orders:

    We reduce the promised shipping date to 15-30 days. The next run has no settled shipping date yet, but it will be earliest in the end of March. So hurry up to catch this run!

    Shipping dates

    We will start shipping of the MicroSticks 26-29/01. The orders will be shipped as soon as they are ready, so the whole shipping process will probably take about 2 weeks or maybe a bit more.

    More than 150 MicroSticks were ordered 16/12 and 17/12, so the first ready MicroSticks will be shipped to them.
    Orders placed in the middle of January most likely will be shipped in the beginning of February.

    Anyway all orders will be shipped not later than 45 days after the payment date.

    The MiniGens SS and Ti are almost ready. They should not delay orders with MicroSticks.
    The extenders will be ready for shipping in the middle of the next week. The only missing part is the condutor pin.

    The shipping was started!

    So what's the current status?

    MicroSticks are ready.
    Extenders for the MicroSticks are ready.
    MiniGens SS and TI are ready except for the engraving. The engraving machine is broken for more than a week. We thought that maybe it would be fixed in time and will not block us, but now they say that our order for engraving will be ready 1-3 of February.

    We decided that we will start shipping of orders which include MiniGens now and ship the MiniGens with standard shipping as soon as they are ready. At least we will not block shipping of MicroSticks and extenders by that.
    The current plan is to ship all orders (except for MiniGens) on this week.

    Tracking numbers were already sent for the shipped orders.

    On the photos you can see the MiniGens before they were sent for engraving and also MicroSticks and extenders prepared for the shipping.

    More than a half of all orders is shipped. The shipping will be finalized on the next week.

    The MicroSticks and the extenders are fully ready.
    The MiniGens arrived from engraving. Now they are on assembling stage. They should be ready for shipping on Sunday or Monday. MiniGens are polished, so SS and Ti versions look almost identical on photos, though Ti version is darker.

    Starting from this run we'll have retailers. Currently we have retailers in USA, Italy and France. All of them are allowed to set any price and ship worldwide.
    Currently they are also wait for shipping. They will have MicroSticks, Extenders and MiniGens SS. The list of retailers will be published as soon as they have items in stock.

    We have leftovers of extenders and MiniGens SS. They will be available on the next week. We'll send the notifications to all who subscribed for stock updates.

    The next run is planned on February. The shipping date is not settled yet, but it will be in the end of March or later. The next run will be started after a vacation. We'll post dates later. We all need rest sometimes

    Known problems of the 3rd run & shipping news

    Let's start with known problems of the current run.

    In some MicroSticks of the 3rd run (serial numbers #800+) the screw head easily gets stripped and it's impossible to remove the screw from the bottom cap.

    The screw head is almost rounded and and gets easily stripped especially if a non-proper tool is used. The recommended tool to unscrew the screws is allen key 2 mm.

    We got defective screws and haven't tested them before installing. Our estimation is that 5-10% of all used screws were defective and since there are two screws in each MicroStick, the probability of having a MicroStick with defective screws is rather high.

    This is our fault and we are sorry about this. Next time we'll test all parts before installing them.

    Please, contact us if you have problem with the screws in the MicroStick of the 3rd run. We'll arrange the repair or replacement of your MicroStick. All the expenses on the shipping will be compensated.

    If you took the screws off, but the screws were damaged, we'll send you the new screws. Please, be careful and don't damage the threads in the MicroStick trying to get the screws out. The problem is in the screws themselves, not in the threads or in the contact of aluminium body and the SS screws. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    The shipping on this week was delayed for the MicroSticks since we tried to find the root cause of the problem. We double checked all screws in MicroSticks which were not shipped yet and replaced all defective.
    All MicroSticks shipped to the retailers were double checked, so these should be ok.

    The full list of known problems can be found here:
    http://mini-ecig.com/known_issues

    We planned to complete the shipping on this week, but due to the extra checks and replaced screws we are now behind the plan. The shipping will be finalized on the next week.

    The list of retailers will be published on the next week.
    We promised to publish it on this week, but due to the defective screws we had to double check the remaining MicroSticks.
    All the MicroSticks were double checked before shipping to retailers but as a result, they were shipped several days later than planned and haven't arrived yet.

    We will publish the list as soon as at least 1 retailer will receive the items and will put them on sale. There will be 200 MicroSticks at our retailers, so you won't miss them.
    The list will be published on all forums where we normally publish our news and also in the store and on our Facebook page.

    The next run will be started in March, so it's a long wait. You can subscribe for stock updates to get a notification when the pre-orders for the next run will be started.

    Question,
    Why only make 200 of them?
    if you make 2000 of them you could make them cheaper and sell more...

    I tried to smoke an e-cig once. Couldn't get the damn thing lit.

    We are collecting subscriptions first and then we start the production. We make about 1.5 times more than were subscribed.

    If there would be a subscription for 2000 we would make 3000
    And by the way 200 is the amount which was requested by retailers. So we'll see what would be the demand for the next run.
    So go and subscribe now if you want the next run to be bigger

    Now we finally have the first retailer!
    Only retailers which have our items in stock are published here:
    http://mini-ecig.com/retailers

    In this run there will be 3 more retailers: 1 more in USA, and 2 in EU. Currently our items are on the way to them.

    Retailers in different countries have different taxes and customs duties, so retailers are allowed to set any price. We will try to increase the list of retailers which will help in maintaining a competitive price.

    We will keep selling our products directly but again with long wait for pre-orders and then for production and shipping, so if for any reason you don't like to buy from retailers, please subscribe for stock updates here:
    http://mini-ecig.com/all
    Then you will be notified as soon as we start the next run.

    If you want to become one of our retailers, please, contact us.

    We're back! Very soon we'll start the next run.
    Now it's planned on the very end of April.

    Since the last run, we found a new building, bought new CNC machines and now we're almost ready to start.
    We hope to solve all problems with anodizing, Hamoriko's finish, etc.
    Also now we won't depend so much on sub-contractors, so it will be easier to keep the quality

    In the coming run we'll have MicroSticks, Extenders, Hamorikos SS and MiniGens SS.
    Titanium versions will come a bit later.

    Chels has a new project: MiniAtty. It's a new bottom feed 16 mm SS atomizer. It will be possible to use it with a silica wick or a mesh. A mesh is installed vertically as an arch.
    We're about to produce the first prototype and then we'll announce the price and publish the photos.

    MiniAtty will be available for pre-order from the beginning of the next run even if we won't be ready with the finalized prototype.
    The prototype and photos will be ready before we'll start the shipping of the next run. Hopefully, the first review will be also ready by that time.
    So it will be possible to place an order for the MiniAtty and later keep it or request a refund depending on prototype testing results.
    For now let's wish Chels good luck and wait for the photos!

    As usually, those who have subscribed for stock updates will get a personal e-mail with notification about start of pre-orders.
