    I have to use 100% vg as well

    Sometimes it's not a certain device, nic level, or flavor of juice that gets us to stop smoking. Sometimes it's just Time....

    Many of us take weeks or months to break that physical and mental barrier and finally quit. Especially after many decades.
    Ah well....tout casse, tout lasse, tout passe...everything breaks, everything gets tiresome, everything passes...

    As a Provari owner, I would suggest you try less expensive shots at variable voltage or variable wattage before a Provari purchase.

    Can you go wrong with one? No.......it is a top quality device and one you would likely have for a while

    But you first need to understand how and why variable voltage/wattage works first and although it isn't as complicated as a mod or rebuild-able, you may find that it doesn't really solve the problem or creates more of one if you don't understand battery safety and resistance/ohms/voltage.

    The better way out is to try some different liquids.......I would +1 the MVP 2.0 for $40 if you want to give it a shot for less investment and try some different toppers to see what you like.

    This was already stated but it is important to understand that it is more than just buying it and go.

    Can't afford the Provari (right now, at least) so I'm considering a Vamo V5 or MVP2 and although I don't really care for the bulkiness of the MVP2, it definitely has its advantages.

    I wish I had gone straight from an Ego to a Provari,,,,I would have saved a ton.

    Yes, it's more expensive than the others out there,,,,,but it's not the MOST expensive,,,,,

    and it's a tank,,,,,I just tossed mine 8 feet onto concrete today, not a scratch,,,,you get a year's warranty,,,,,,and after that, if it breaks, it's CHEAP to fix,,,,,,,

    try that with some of the stuff out there,,,,,

    if it's the right choice for you,,,,,,it's the right choice for you.

    Provari is good, eVic is a good choice too. I own both and switch between them often. The eVic has some goods features and the Provari is tough as nails. Either way you can't go wrong.

    It's a great choice I was in the same boat as you once I got the provari I was more than happy I did do it.
