Congrats on your new ProVari!! It's worth every penny. I did what you did and bought might right after two eGo's. You're going to love it!!

My time frames used in my previous post are from my personal vaping habits. I use a 2.0 - 3.0 ohm delivery device, either a clearomizer or cartotank. I don't use low resistance as I prefer a cooler vape. I use a voltage range of 3.6v -4.4v depending upon the specific flavor I'm vaping. If I'm working, I vape only a few vapes during breaks. In the evenings and on weekends, I'm a fairly typical vapor. I typically vape 3 ml a day. Hope that helps. Provape recommends using 3.0 ohm attachments as that resistance allows you a wider range of voltages to use than low resistance would.

Greetings; Good thread to read, I've just been thinking about upgrading from my eGo-Twist to a more advanced battery setup. I've got some dual coil clearo heads on order, and it just occurred to me that these are going to drain batteries a lot faster than what I use now, hence the need for something with more juice.
Are Provaris a good item in terms of portability? One thing I really like about my current setup (which includes a mini-sized clearo) is that it's small enough to put in the top pocket of my jacket when I got out, or in the pocket of my jeans when I'm wandering around home or the office (never the back pocket -- the clearo has a pyrex tank, and I can picture myself forgetting about E-Cig before sitting down!)
Is it possible to put together an easily portable rig like this with the Provari or one of the other advanced batteries?

I use both the iClear30 clearos and the IBTanked pyrex cartotanks on my Mini Provari when out of the house. I carry them in my front jeans pocket. The Mini is the most versatile between the two Provari's offered. You can't make the standard smaller, but you can make the Mini longer (to use longer lasting batteries).

This is the typical setup that I use away from the house, minus the wide base end cap. An IBTanked pyrex tank with the Mini in 18350 battery mode. I usually carry at least one spare 18350 battery with me in a safety plastic battery case in my pocket.
You can extend the length of both the standard and min to accept a larger battery by purchasing Provape's battery extension cap.

You can also use after-market Tatroe Mods extension rings to allow the mini to use the 18490 (one ring) or the 18650 (two rings).

Now all you need is a Reo, and your arsenal will be complete.
To answer Glenn-K's question, the Reo is more pocket friendly, and how can you hurt a solid block of aluminum?!
The Reo Mini 2.1 even uses the same 18490 battery as the Provari (which really cuts down on the logistics)
And don't worry Blu, it's only another $144 you need to save up
Great info! Thanks so much Baditude, so High Drain only. Is the 2900 the biggest "capacity" you can get right now? Or I'll just search
SR will get cooler vapes, good to know, as I prefer it but changing the resistance on the Evod's and Protanks never seemed to change the temperature (for me), only the amount of vapor. So 3.0 Ohm SR it is, just one last question if you don't mind?
I found a thread where you responded about XL vs Standard Carto's- ECF XL vs Standard Carto's and you have recommended the Ikenvape Platinum's previously in this thread.
When I go to their site and look at the Platinums, I'm looking at getting a IKV 510 MEGA Platinum STD, however they also offer a "S Series".
Do you have a recommendation of the S Series over the Standard Platinum? Thanks again!The Platinum S is not a force to be reckon with. With an even denser style of batting that still allows sweet liquid flow and tightened ventilation, the Platinum has become a new living legend in the IKV world. With 1 precisely well placed 10mm rectangular slot measuring a 10mm that runs in line with the vertical coil is Guaranteed not to over fill of dehydrate. The laser cut slot is smooth to the touch and sits flush with the body. Its location is 10 mm from the top of the base of the 510 connector. The total length of this unit 50.00mm and 44.5mm from the base (on top of the threads to the top)
