Might be 25L based on this http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220688338166+#ht_7480wt_817
Though I can't find any info on if the XR-16A is different than the XR-16.

You can always fill it up with water and measure it out.

thanks nuke!
i thought of that also, but if it turned out i bought it and it had a small capacity, it would have been bad for me.

i'll buy it then

Aren't you just using it for gpu benching? I think gpus eat through LN2, so you might want a bigger one.

I duno. The place I get LN2 from doesn't charge me for short term rentals, so you might want to ask . I just know it sucks when you want to bench more and you run out of stuff frown.gif

By short term rentals.. how long? do you have to return it same day? (closest ln2 supplier is like an hour away from me)

I get 20L for saturday and sunday, so I can do about a chip a day. I might be getting a special deal though, the guy said this was kind of a special arrangement since I will be a repeat customer. Just got done with a 955 a few min ago smile.gif. I get my stuff at Central Welding. Praxair is farther away and more expensive.

I don't know if the image of you (or anyone) getting all sensual with a dewar is something I want to have in my mind. biggrin.gif


@ OP
Dude... you need to get in contact with BHS (Black Hole Surplus)... blackholesurplus.com. Go to their website and get their phone number, give them a call and ask them what they have available. They are the favorite of LN2 benchers on a budget.
