View Full Version : Where in the world... ?

Where do you buy the magnetic nano containers ? I bought 10 from Ebay a couple months ago, and want to get some more but, no one seems to be selling them anymore. And I can't figure out where else to find them. I'm not even sure what to search for, other than "nano" but, that's not helping.

Thank you,

I think maybe they've been outlawed :lol: (actually not, but sometimes when I'm hunting them I wish they were!)

LOL I know what you mean. Don' come up to NW Arkansas, then. grins I'm planning on placing a series of them soon. grins :P

I found some on E-Bay. I typed in Nano cache.

The 5 pack for $7.50 tis the only ones I've found so far. When I bought mine a couple months ago, I got 10 for $10 and free shipping. I was *hoping* for another awesome deal like that. :( I guess that's probably about as good as tis gonna get, though. Thank you,

Since you can't find the nano's, may I suggest a series of ammo cans instead???? :wink: :wink: :wink:

hehe YOU try fitting an ammo can on a fire hydrant! :P

11-23-2008, 12:08 PM
Every time you hide a nano.....a puppy dies. :(

I have seen an ammo can that is able to fit on or under a fire hydrant. It is located in Hot Springs, it's not at a fire hydrant but in the woods and it is the smallest one I have ever seen.

11-23-2008, 02:39 PM
I've seen those but, they're more expensive than the magnetic nano's.

I bought mine at a place on line called cacheboxstore.com. Is it legal for me to post that on here. I dunno... I think they are about 1.25 a piece, but be sure to glue in the magnets. Just do a google search for geocaching store. You should be able to find a large number of suppliers. I have found about 10 different stores selling cache containers.

Which containers are you talking about, CP ? I bought five of the nano's for now from someone on ebay that had a five pack for $7.50. 5 should be enough to last me for now 'til I can find a better price, if that's possible. Or an alternative container of same size and magnetism. lol

Thank you everyone for your help and advice. :)

This happened late last year or early this year too. Everybody is sold out of them right now. I did see some at gpscity.com, but they were 4.95 each! Guess that's why they still had some. Waiting on they next boatload of them from China I s'pose. Meanwhile, all the puppies are safe for now! :lol:

(I post this because I actually like kitties more than puppies, lol)

Are you looking for these? http://www.crazycaches.com/nano-cache-10-pack-p-77.html

bleh Wish you'd posted that before I ordered the five pack. :( I bookmarked it for next time. Thank you, Kittzle.

11-25-2008, 05:45 AM
Thanks Kittzle! I think I'll get some too! Maybe I can put one in OEnavigators front yard. :lol:

Did you check out THIS ONE (http://www.crazycaches.com/ultimate-nightmare-micro-geocache-container-p-51.html) on that same website. I may just have to order it when they get them back in stock.

Lee Valley is a great source for woodworking products, but had an interesting item (45K0715) called a mini-ID container. Inexpensive and a possible alternative to Mr. Magneto. It is brass with a small ring. They also have bison containers for a reasonable price. http://www.leevalley.com

Thank you for the info. I will check them out.

12-23-2008, 08:04 PM
Here is a web page that will answer all your questions from Mr. Magneto

Did you check out THIS ONE (http://www.crazycaches.com/ultimate-nightmare-micro-geocache-container-p-51.html) on that same website. I may just have to order it when they get them back in stock. I ordered this along with some other "good" caches from the same site last week including a pack of nano's. I received them a couple of days ago. Better look out if you come a cachin' in El Do!!

I make them out of the small nitro glycerin containers and rare earth magnets or Google search , using a Binary Boolean type search request .such as"Geocache containers+Magnetic Nano" that's how I got the URL for ebay listing .
