Many of those owners had spent hundreds of dollars on cheaper mods which broke down before their time, requiring them to buy another cheap mod to replace it. How many times should they continue to buy mods that will not last? A mod with bells & whistles which doesn't work and can't be fixed becomes an expensive paperweight.
Some listened to the Provari owners, bit the bullet and purchased their own. The vast majority kick themselves for not buying one sooner. Rarely do you see someone who has/had a Provari say it wasn't worth the extra expense.
Don't believe me? Read the dozen or so links at the end of my blog: Why Provari?
Most people who buy a Provari are simple vapers. They don't subohm, they don't use high voltage. They don't need variable wattage, puff counters, or an OLED display. They don't mind the Provari's digital screen because they know it is more hardy against abuse than those purty OLED screens that the cheaper mods have. They just want a device that works and won't fall apart or disfunction. And in the rare chance it does, they know they can return it to Provape and have it returned back within days good as new.
If you need the newest shiney and/or the most powerful mod available, more power to you. Just don't judge us simple vapors who just want to vape a simple Provari.
