    will the shipping cost to europe be reasonable? some us manfacturers are charging 50$, which would be a steep price for a neat device sized like a pen.

    Really hoping this does what it's supposed to. Been looking for the "volcano" of portables for a long time. Most of these oil pens don't make much sense considering most the market has no access to essential oils. In SoCal we have plenty of resources for ours but that is not how it is nationwide or across the pond. Especially actual high quality concentrates...

    If this delivers it will be a homerun, especially at that price point there is no reason everyone won't want one. I could care less how long it takes to get here as long as it's perfect.

    It appears they are in the process of putting together an actual working unit.

    I thought kickstarter and such was to raise funds to get a project off the ground , and if it doesn't work out all you get is kinda Oh well we tried . Am I wrong ?

    Well they have pictures of the actual clicker/temp control on one of the links. I figured they are working on a prototype. I am curious to when this will be released.

    I'm going to keep watching for it . Just for myself I wouldn't put any money down for it or worry about shipping and different colors or casings until I see more then what was on the links I've seen .

    But as JoeKickass pointed out others who know much more then i seem to think it shows promise .

    I too am curious to see when this will become an actuality . the pics of the parts still just look like a mock up to me . Not saying I'm right .

    OMG, I'm totally loving the look of the Zenpen! :cool: It certainly has the potential to take stealthiness to a whole new level. I'm positively itching to see if this product turns out to be as awesome as it promises to be :)

    This thing looks pretty cool, I just hope the vapor production is good. ZepPen when will you show us a video? If you start blowing clouds I am definitely going to jump in on the Kickstarter campaign.

    If this actually performs I can see many upon many FCers jumping on the train. Myself included. I can't remember we're the batteries replaceable on this thing? Cuz that's a huge deal breaker for me.

    Kinda, i think? With kickstarter, if they dont reach their goal they dont get the money. With indiegogo they can keep the money regardless of if they reach their goal or not

    Thanks for reposting Seibo's comments. I forgot about this. Definitely has my interest perked now.

    All righty, then. After spending time doing some reading up and listening to pod casts, I'm really interested now. Don't know if this will be the one, but I'm definitely up for giving it a go. I like what I've seen & heard so far, so I'm willing to support them on this shot at a real flower pen. If it doesn't work, it'll be just another step towards what I am confident WILL happen eventually. Just prefer sooner than later. Good luck to you ZenPen guys, I'm rooting for you. :tup:

    Peace

    Dude... seriously... Looking fuckin' nice. I'll definitely keep this one on the "watched threads" list! Wish I could spare a few bucks for you guys, but money's been tighter than a... well, it's been tight. I'll definitely be watching this one though, it looks really nice and the size is welcomed.

    On the first page, they quoted a load capacity of .2 to .3g...

    I could see this one make its way to my collection for on-the-go.

    Thanks for sharing the pics :)

    edit: I said definitely three times (and took one out). I should step away from the keyboard for a bit. :mental:

    Did you win power ball or Lotto ? or just catch a "devil may care" strain of VAS ?



    Has anyone seen any electronics or only metal pieces of tubing and an end piece that could be from a parker bros pen with numbers on it ? The concept and talk are awesome . But in the past we've been deceived (maybe not intentionally ) and shelled out money when nobody had close to a working model , and never did ............ miVape Oh you Looked so Awesome
