The connector on a Panaflo that sells for 2-3 dollars will be a 2 pin Molex KK style. These connectors are like those that are on a motherboard, but they have 2 pins instead of 3. You can clip off one of the polarity labs and a 2 pin will fit on a 3 pin.

The $2 Panaflo phenomenon is as a result of a massive amount of surplus inventory that was dumped on the California market. Some giant manufacturer special ordered these fans from Panasonic with this 2 pin connector and then probably cancelled the production run that they were purchased for. Then they liquidated them for pennies on the dollar through the surplus parts dealers.

The major Panasonic distributors buy Panaflo fans from the factory for about $4 a piece purchased in case qty(100 pieces). Then they double that cost to sell them to retailers or small run manufacturers. So you can see that the opportunity to buy a Panaflo for $2 will not extend indefinitely and you should definitely take advantage of it. Please send all the Panaflo fans to Europe that you can afford so that the surplus inventory will dry up and people can go pack to buying them for $16.

Thanks, :)

Jonathan

4 fans for Oz is that right?

Hey, if it's not too late, make it 5! May as well splash out! ;)

And with so many fans the shipping will be just over $1/fan anyway, not that bad.

Exactly! The shipping will be split 4 ways (or however many people there are), and then divide that by the number of fans! It'll be cheap anyway!

Get cracking!
Cheers,
Oz
:D

Jolt, are you gonna get the fans and then send them over to Oz in the UK? I would like 4 please (or 6 if you have enough spare in the order) if your gonna do that :D

Oz, if you get all the fans can i just send you a cheque for the fans and postage and you post them on to me?

Cheers.

ok, just waiting for a final confirmation from choy, and then I'm ordering.

The price will probably be 55kr/fan, surely not more than 60kr/fan at least.

Oz> how come you you speak swedish by the way? ;)

I'm Swedish! But I'm living and studying in the UK. That's why I can pay you from Sweden ;). It seems Panaflos are popular with us Swedes :D.

I'm not reselling them really, I'm just buying 5 for myself, and then I'll post 4 (or 6 or however many it turned out to be) to ChiefWeasel. Sowwy.

Good work Jolt! :D

Sorry about the delay guys, but everything seems to have turned out fine anyway. I'll take my share of 10, unless someone didn't get any.

Good work Jolt! Now I won't get broke by buying fans at least. I'll just spend the cash on other unnecessities. (if there is such a word :) )

2850 vs 2100, got it from here.

As for the fanmate, it'll just lower the noise, the RPM, but unfortunately also the Airflow!

Guess what? My fans arrived today, (thanx Jolt and Oz!) but the funny thing is , ive just decided to go to California in about a month, could have picked em up myself ;) I suppose 60 would have been a pretty big box tho :roll:

But anyway, yeah since im in America does anyone want anything from the states? Would have to be fairly small tho :D

I'd like a couple of Panaflo L1A's 80mm. (say 4-5) and two low 120's, would you be willing and able? ;-)

Oh, and is the price as low as before... or what?
