    Default ProVari Battery time

    How long does one battery last you? Mine lasts about an hour until it slowly begins it's blink. All said and done it lasts about 2 1/2 hours.. Both batteries. I bought the ones from ProVape

    Sounds like a charger issue.
    What are you using?

    I was thinking the same. I'll post the specs/name of it when I get home from work.

    I've never really timed it. The shorter battery w/MAP Tank, I have to refill the MAP before the batt ever begins to blink. I usually swap it out as soon as it starts to blink. If I had to guess I'd say at least 6 hours, and maybe on towards 8. I'm talkin about when I'm home and doin nuttin but sittin watching tv and vapin pretty much the whole time. I hit it at least twice a minute. JMHO

    Cheers,

    My charger gives my 18650 IMR high drain batts from Provape a 4.0 or 4.1 charge, according to Provari's built-in tester. Starting with this level of charge, I run a batt down to 3.7 volts after two hours of heavy vaping with the Provari at about a 4.2 volt setting. That's when I switch batts in hopes of making them live longer (last for more recharges). A short (18490) batt, also from Provape, will start flashing after two hours of same, which happily matches my charger time for recharging the 18650s. Lower voltage settings definitely give more vape time on a charge.

    I went 9 hours on a 18490 yesterday. It started blinking just shortly before that, so I could have pushed it longer. That was with a 3.2 MAP at 5.1V. I have noticed the lower the resistance the faster the batt dies, dramatically. My 2.6 MAP only got 7 hours.

    First use of an AW-18650 batt took about 12 hours to run 7ml thru my MAP tank using a CE2 that measures 3.1Ω on the Provari set at 4.0V

    OK, I'm looking on the back of mine. 99% is in Chinese, however, the input/output figures are not.
    Input: AC100-240V/47-63HZ
    Output: 1.2V/700mA
    4.2V/600mA
    Multi-function intelligent charger
    Model: HG-1206W
    ZL200620167389X

    The batteries:
    Color - RED
    Sticker - AW
    IMR 18490 3.7V 1100mAh

    Buy a Pila Charger.

    Why spend the kind of cash you dropped on that Provari and not make sure you have a good charger?

    Just my opinion.

    I have a Provari on order and I already have the batts and a good charger waiting for it.

    Just my two cents.

    I agree and don't have a problem spending money on a quality charger. The only reason why I used this one is because it charged the 3.7 batteries of my Chuck. With that said, are the specs that I posted not up to par for the batteries I have?
