    Default VV mods and atty's

    OK so as some of you know I am getting a provari, my first VV-mod. I've been searching the net and have come accross contradicting information. You cannot use LR on the provari, correct? I was planning on getting the cisco HH .357 510 atty. That is a LR atty? Or do I need to get it at a higher ohms (3.0-3.5) to be able to use it with the provari. Or does the provari only use regular atty's?

    Opi:
    The provari operates as low as 3V I believe. That doesn't really matter. The point is to match the resistance of the atomizer/cart/whatever to the voltage range of the provari. Most juices will start to get burny at 5.0V on a 1.5 ohm.

    Now, the HH .357 is available in a number of ohms (1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0). The mid values would be more suited to the voltage range of a Provari. YMMV.

    Best of Luck. You're going straight for the good stuff and that's pretty smart.

    It's not that you can't use them on the provari. It's that you won't be able to take it much higher than 5 volts at 1.5 ohm. I have used some of my left over 1.5 dc cartos without any issues, granted I only use them at around 4.4 volts as that's my sweet spot for my use of them. They have 3.5 amp limit so the 1.5 ohm atties/cartos wil be somewhat limited is all.

    The provari wont let you burn it. Using a 1.5 ohm cart my provari errors if I try to take it over 4.7 volts

    Ok thanks guys, it gets pretty confusing to a new user to VV vaping. So 2-3 ohms would be better for the provari then. And yea after 1+ years of buying cheap ego's and 510's im gonna finally bite the bullet and buy top shelf products. I'm usually an enthusiast when it comes to stuff like this, I just spent 2500 on a new PC a couple of months ago but I couldn't bring myself to spend more than 20 bucks on a pv. Man I could of had 2-3 provari's if I started buying them since the beginning lol.

    If you are getting a V2 Provari you can take the 1.5ohm atty far hotter than you would want to use it (3.5a limit instead of 2.5a limit) The real question is why would you want to use a LR atty? LR atties and cartos are designed for those that don't have the power to run SR. You will get far better performance using atties and cartos in the 2.5-3.0ohm range with your Provari.

    Maybe just go for the 2 or 2.5 ohm

    3 ohm is actually about perfect for most people, in that at 6 volts and 3 ohm you are maxing out the PV at 12 watts, which is the limit past which most people find things too burnt tasting to use. So with a 3 ohm, you'll get a really nice "sweet" range, starting from 4.9 volts at 8 watts, all the way up to the 12 watts at 6. Some people like it a little hotter than 12 watts, so you might want to try one of the 2.5 ohm ones as well, as they can be pushed up to 14.4 watts.

    I don't vape to quit smoking. I vape instead of smoking.
    I smoked cigarettes, not analogs, stinkies, or smellies.

    as an FYi, the Provari V2 has a 3.5amp switch and runs between 2.9v-6.0v. heat wise you can get the same "power" (heat or wattage) using 1.5ohm@ 3.7v as you can with 3.0ohm@5.2v (~9.1watts = power = heat). Big difference is that with the 3.0ohm device every 0.1v change = ~0.2watts difference in power where as the 1.5 ohm device 0.1v change = ~0.43watts difference in power. Most folks like the higher resistance because you have a much finer ability to tune in to your vaping preference.
