    Seriously? Look up the word ignorant sometime, it means uninformed, just like the ignorant comment you just made.

    As someone who has owned a Provari, 4 to be exact, a Darwin, a bunch of other PVs, and am currently vaping on my Opus, I would say my knowledge of this is at worst, experienced, and certainly informed.

    With a 3 ohm Boge on my Provari at anywhere from 4.5 volts to 5.5 volts I would get about 12 to 15 hours depending on the day, with a Panasonic 18650 2250 may.

    With the same setup on my Darwin I recently ran it completely dead, it to two days, you do the math.

    Hell my Opus is 1200 may an its battery life will stomp a mudhole in anything you can put in a Provari.

    But, I'm sure I'm wasting my breath, because just as you have already done, you will look for the perceived insults and ignore the info of an educated member, and restate the Provari fan boy line.

    Provari for me as I'm heavily into tanks as opposed to cartos mainly for juice volume reasons.

    The Darwin form factor (control arm) leaves too little options for atty configurations.

    I personally think the variable wattage may be better than variable voltage options but I'll hold out for a redesign that accommodates more delivery options.

    Vape On!

    Yet another D'win vs. Provari thread....and as normally occurs, digresses into a "piss..g match"....what a shame....both are great APV's.... one is Variable Voltage, the other Variable Wattage...kinda like comparing apples to oranges....some love apples, others love oranges...and some love apples and oranges equally....

    Only comment from me is that finding my "happy place" is really what matters....and having found it, my hope is that ALL vapers find theirs....there are hundreds of threads where vapers are searching for PV's, attys, carto's, juice, etc. to find their "happy place"....when, and if, you find it, all this bantering becomes just passive reading....and justifying your PV of choice is an "exercise in futility"....but that's just my opinion...

    Do I have a PV that I recommend....yes, as most of us do....will I try to cram it down someone's throat,....no....the choice is yours to make....

    Good luck in your search for your "happy place"....

    This was looking like a good thread until I read this post. It's amazing how some of the BS still comes out by a few Provari addicts about the Darwin. Since the Darwin provides 21 - 35 hours of heavy vaping time on a charge, the BS about being tethered to an outlet is just that: BS. Unless one sleeps only every other day, there is no need to vape while charging the Darwin, although it is nice that the Darwin doubles as a pass-through if one forgets to charge it.

    I use tanks and mega cartos on my Darwin, so whatever "limitations" you are talking about must be imaginary.

    That's an excellent idea. Thank you for sharing!

    I will say that you can tell by how confident that the average Darwin owner is, exactly how good the Darwin is, by their answers to your question, in the Darwin forum, and the static answer is that both are great, its essentially up to what works for you.

    Now notice the reaction of the average Provari owner on this board, anywhere, anytime, if someone mentions the Provari, you can rest assured that they will arrive in force to let you know why the Provari is the greatest thing ever. Just interesting to note the confidence of Darwinia, over and against the insecurity of the Order of the provari.

    All that said, they shouldn't feel insecure, the Provari is a great device, but cannot be compared to the Darwin, or the Opus for that matter.

    One great thing about the Provari, you can order one right now.
    This is excellent insight and on target. I rarely if ever see Darwin owners bad mouthing the Provari. Most comment that both are top of the line models. But many times I have read Provari owners attack any post providing positive comments on the Darwin. It's quite sad, especially for those doing the attacking.

    It's all about preference when you choose a mod. I have a Provari and like it very much. It's a heavy PV, but that just reminds me that its made of stainless steel and not lightweight aluminum. It works fine and delivers the vape I want and has the amperage capacity to use any resistance I care to try, since it's variable from 2.9v to 6v.

    That said, there's a rainbow of different PV mods out there and you just have to sift through the specs and decide on looks, features and versatility, and price. Your choice may differ from mine and that's to be expected.

    When you get right down to price, a really good mod costs about the same price as several cartons of cigarettes. We wouldn't think twice about satisfying our cigarette addiction month after month at high cost, but when it comes to PVs, we get stingy with the money! I guess it's all about saving money. Even though, a well made U.S. mod should come with a service department that can repair your investment rather than just selling you another one at retail. Service counts and it's worth asking about. Service includes upgrades at reasonable cost so that yours doesn't become obsolete.

    I like the "Browse by Features" link in this database. You can narrow it down to the features you want and then browse them.
