I'd go ProVari with AW IMRs just to avoid stacking batteries. May be a little excessive but when I'm sticking the thing in my mouth I'm not taking any chances.
With 2000 mah batteries, I think it would last a bit longer. Assuming same wattage with each setup.
I'm running the IMR 18490 1100mah batts that came with the unit, I'm getting around 6 hours per battery. I'm not completely thrilled with the battery life, but I can live with it. How much more capacity do I get if I get the plate extension?
Blah, Blah, Blah. And a little more... Blah, Blah, Blah.
When vaping the exact same coil and juice in the same Odysseus, Buzz pro w/powerizers lasts close to the same time as the Provari with 18490. I picked up a used Buzz pro and bought some new powerizer batteries from them because of the huge battery life claimed... its hype.. nothing more.
So appx 2-3hrs more with the 1600mah and maybe 4-5hrs more with the 2000mah. To many variables to say perzactly.
I am getting appx 20hrs of use on 18490s and go thru about 3-3.5mls of juice in a 3.0ohm Fluxo at about 4V so the variables being ohms, volts, and amount of juice.
So am I a lightweight or medium vapor
I can tell you my actuals for a BP, if anyone else has them for a Provari. I run 6 - 7 ml of eliquid through (6.5 average), using a 2.5 ohm carto at about 4.5V, between battery swaps. This is consistent, over months of use.

How does that translate to hours of use?? What time frame do you see??
Went from Green Smoke, to Volcano Inferno, evolution V2, Indulgence, Mini Lavatube, and now Pro-Vari V2(Best E-Cig investment I've made!!) also have been rockin my second best investment, Penelope. "Buy it nice, not twice"
Pretty much all day. On a really heavy vape day, like when I just switched to a tank, boosted consumption to 9 ml/day for a little bit, I swapped batteries for the last couple of hours at night. 6 - 7 ml/day is pretty much my day-in, day-out rate (I can vape at work). Helping a buddy working on his camp, the batteries lasted until I got back home at 2 am the next morning -- I was vaping less frequently during the day, but a lot on the drive home.
I try to give information in ml, ohms, volts, because that kind of levels the field. I know that when I went from my earlier vaping, on KR808 and Riva fat batteries, switching to VV, I pretty much overnight doubled my daily consumption, from 3ml/day to 6
A person who vapes at about my volts and ohms can expect to run through as many ml as I do between battery changes. I know people who have stayed at about 3ml/day, and they report two days between battery changes. Me, I bumped consumption, only get one.
I like what I use a lot, but Provari is an awesome PV from everything I've heard, certainly solid for anyone wanting a well-engineered product.
