    Default Just pulled the trigger on a Provari

    Hello fellow Vape-addicts, Modders and Hobbyists!

    The name's Jon, figured considering I just put some real money into this little hobby I should probably finally take the time to register and say hi.

    Just a little background about me;

    I was a pack-a-day smoker for almost 15 years. Back in February of this year a few co-workers started coming into work with Mods and Ego's. After some guidance from Co-workers and research on ECF, I grabbed a little Chinese/CE4 kit from HighDesertVapes in March. (Great little starter kit IMHO, one DOA batt HDV took care of, but since that time, both batteries have survived being dropped into a river for about 10 seconds and 7 months of abuse in my pocket.)

    Shortly after I began vaping, I got some Kanger EVOD's (one of the best Ego sized tanks out there IMHO) and a ProTank while dropping my atty's down to the 1.8-2.0 Ohm range. Other than getting my "Go-To" juices and buying packs of atty's over the last several months. I've been pretty content, except my inner geek was always nagging at me to get into the "Modding" side of things.

    Here's the current beat-up but working setup:


    So, Sunday night, after months of research, I treated myself to a regular ProVari (2 18650's/Ex-Cap/Satin Black/Blue LED/Charger). 100ft of 30AWG and 100ft of 32AWG A1 and a package of Organic Cotton balls. Should be getting it all on Friday and I can't wait!

    Once the ProVari comes in, I'll start rebuilding some of the "dead" Kanger atty's I've been collecting over the past several months, using those MicroCoil setups I've been reading so much about.

    Next step, I'm looking at getting some carto's, probably one of the Smoktech's DCT setups to start, then maybe get an IBTanked/Pro-V using a Boge or maybe some of those faultless Hoosier carto's? (Ohm recommendations welcomed).

    Well, that's all I can really think of for now to introduce myself, I hope I'm pointed in the right direction, but any guidance from the guru's is most welcome! Now... back to the search function I go!

    Welcome Blu. You've made a gigantic step from an ego style to a Provari but you won't regret it. It will out last anything you already have and out perform them also. Congrats.

    Wow! You're eGos look very . . . uh . . . loved. That's probs what my hub's would look like too if he took them to work (he's a contractor)! Looks like you are making some great choices. 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!

    Welcome, Jon. Excellent choice going for the Provari.

    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.

    Your vape just got considerably better. Most people think the battery is just the source of the heat to the coil, and it is. However, voltage regulation has everything to do with how well the juice is atomized. 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!

    I am by no means advanced enough to warrant spending that kind of money but I do have a question about the provari. I have a x6 and it is a 1300 Mah battery. I don't get to chain vape at work so I thought it should last a day or so. At least that is what others have said. What kind of battery life does a provari have. I know it would depend on battery size so let's just go with the largest one they offer. Would I have to carry a pocket full of batteries to make it 24 hours? And that would be chain vaping not my normal at work. I am a big phone geek as well and my big thing was a phone that could last me all day on a single charge. I have that now and would like to have a pv that will do the same.
