Nearly every day a new thread on ECF is started asking what is so special about the Provari from Provape. So to appease those people's questions, I've decided to add another title to my blogs with a collection of facts and opinions about the Provari.
The Provari was first introduced in 2010. Since its introduction it has become the "gold standard" of regulated advanced personal vaporizors due to its quality of build, quality of parts used, and the attention to manufacturing

This blog article is an adapted version of an article written by Timmothy Braun, an vaper enthusiast and battery expert. This is the first part of two parts. This is provided for those mod users who desire a more technical understanding of the batteries used in mods, and should provide a better understanding on the different battery chemistries and how to identify the proper battery for your intended application.
In a mechanical mod with a metal piston switch and no wiring, your weak

This is Part II of a Deeper Understanding of Mod Batteries.
Sony VTC5 IMR/hybrid battery
Hybrid batteries are a new type of "mixed chemistry" battery manufactured by Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, and others. Hybid batteries use a Cobalt cathode like ICR batteries but have the same manganese and nickle makeup which IMR batteries have. This provides for higher drain capabilities while also having higher overall battery capacity (mAh).

As mod users, we depend heavily upon batteries. To assist novices to choose which battery to use in their mod I have written this guide. Our choices are Lithium IMR, protected ICR Li-Ion, and a new class of Hybrid batteries.
High quality IMRs are currently recommended in place of protected ICR Li-Ion for all applications. reference - Rechargeable Batteries
IMR (Li-Mn) are the safest batteries available for vaping. They use safer chemistry, so they don't require a built-in
