    Thanks, I know it was a huge jump but after 7 months of minimal purchases I figured I had saved enough money from not buying Analogs to justify it. At least thats what I told my wife!

    Definitely will, after all the savings vaping, why not right?

I quickly moved from cig-a-likes to egos to mods, so I understand the desire to geek out and get the best vape EVER. Welcome to the forum!
    Ya they are loved, happens when you throw them into cargo pockets or the back pocket of your jeans on a regular basis, that and well the "Paint" or whatever was used on them wasn't the greatest to begin with! I tend to be more of a "well they're still working" kind of guy, but now I might play with aesthetics a bit, owning a ProVari, how could I not?

    I have a standard and a mini. Despite having 8 other mods, the Provari's get 90% of my vaping attention. Simply great mods; you will not be disappointed in your choice.

    I recommend IBTanks over any other cartotank. I have over a dozen of these. High quality at a reasonable cost. I suggest the 19mm diameter unless you decide to also get a Pro Ring (Provari beauty ring) and then get the 22mm. I recommend getting some Ikenvape Platinum punched cartos unless you are really set on Boges. I recommend a resistance of 2.5 - 3.0 ohm for the widest selection of voltages on the Provari. IBTanked Review


    Come join us in the Provari sub-forum: ProVari
    Definitely will come over to the Provari Sub and thanks for the recommendations, I've got my eyes set on the 19mm. I really appreciate it and will look into those Ikenvapes. Also if I were to go below 2.5 Ohm, any danger of hurting the Provari? I heard really good things about Hoosier carto's as well? Any pro's or con's to a Hoosier Carto vs Ikenvape Platinum?

Very few devices can provide this heat the way the Provari does, and you will instantly experience the difference. The other thing is that you won't have to leave home with backup devices, a battery, sure, but not another PV/APV, as the Provari is the most reliable device we now have. I have the regular (black/Blue LED) and mini (Silver/Red LED) and am getting the wife the white mini (blue LED) for Xmas. You not only won't regret buying the Provari, but will be surprised at how much better it is, particularly comparing it to any of the lesser China APV's. Welcome to the Club, I know you'll enjoy it and congratulations. Great ADV. Welcome to the Forum!

    ETA~ I use Boge and Ikenvape cartos with Phiniac Tanks. I also use the IBTanks, but prefer the Phiniac's to them. Big improvement over the clearos, imho, though some vapers can taste the filler material in the carto, rendering them less than desirable. TG I'm not one who can taste the material, as I vape cartos all day long. When I get bored, I'll fire up the RBA's and RDA's, but my ADV is the Provari and Phiniac, usually with a fresh Boge. Best to you!

    Hadn't heard of Phiniac's yet, checking them out now, and thank you very much for your advice as well!

    Dont be dumb! dont listen to Bill and Bad, they dont know what they are talking about, everyone knows the provari is overpriced, outdated, old school, doesnt do VW, the menu system sucks, the button is mushy, the end caps cost too much, everything from china is better for cheaper and its not worth the price of the shipping and you will regret spending that much.

    I wonder why I own two of them....... wait......... what?






    What kind of battery life does a provari have.
    if you go outside of provapes recommended batteries I am getting 2 days on average from the 2900 panasonic at 4v with a 1.8 ohm coil

    This (from what I understand) is a bit of a loaded question but I can try to answer this one. The 18650 is the largest battery "size" the ProVari uses but you can get different types of 18650's (manufacturer/max output/maH) The maH or Milliamp Hours basically speaking to how much "Charge" the battery is supposed to be able to hold. Now the resistance of the tank you're using will effect battery life based upon the kind of amperage you're running and other factors like heat can also effect it. Plus the lengths of pulls you're doing

    Basically you could put a setup together that was High Voltage/Low Resistance with a "cheaper" 1600 maH battery that might only last 6-12 hours. (Maybe even less) but most that I've heard of have setups that last 2-3 days. Get a Samsung/Panasonic 18650 with 2600+maH with a single coil at 2-3 Ohms you could probably even get a week out of a single charge. (Massive generalizations taken into account)

    As I said previously, I have both a standard and a mini Provari, and use them with both their default battery size and the larger batteries via the extended battery caps. I use the Provape recommended batteries: AW IMR's.

    AW18490 = 700 mah 6- 7 hours

    AW18490 = 1100 mah 10 - 11 hours

    AW18650 = 2000 mah 20 - 22 hours

    Panasonic CGR18650CH - 2300 mah 20 - 22 hours

    No. The Provari has built-in protection circuitry and a 3.5 amp limit, so it would refuse to fire an atty too low in ohm. It would display an error code on the LED display, "Lo".

    I have a note 2 with the zerolemon battery. And my provari even in the standard 18490 mode lasts me all day with just two batteries. This is with a 1.2 ohm coil. And chain vaping like a chimney. Usually 1 battery will get me through most of the day. Then the other will carry through the night. Never bought the extended cap so couldnt tell you about the longevity of that

    Man I guess it didnt send correctly. Ok.
    I have a note 2 with a zerolemon battery. so I too like to not worry about battery life . I have a provari with the standard end cap. So only takes 18490 size batteries. I use a 1.2 ohm coil on it daily.
    I chain vape like a chimney. With two charged batteries I get though the day and night. You can also get the end caps to use 18650 batteries. Couldnt even imagine the battery life then. One battery gets me through until about 6. So about 12 hours of use. Then I pop in the second one. And am good to go until I get home and recharge.

    Blu, you are going to love your Provari. I'm a newbie too, but I knew buying the best would save me a lot in the long run, it's a perfect vaping device. And the menu is simple, really! I've had mine over a week now, absolutely grateful to the folks on here who give the Provari the credit it's due!

    The only 'problem' with buying one's first ProVari, is that they tend to multiply...

    Congrats on your new purchase! I got my very first kit from HDV as well! Those batts hold up amazing don't they! Be sure to share your experience with us. I wish I'd gone right for the Provari after my initial starter but all that trial & error worked in the end I guess. Oh & be sure to post pics! Happy vaping!!

    Finally saving...but not nearly what it says above. Oh well, still beats smoking any day!
