I bought one about a year ago, and really like it. It is a great 3.7v device. I have several vv pv's but still like my 3.7v pv's. I would highly recommend the Provape.
Quit Date: 03/2011
There is also the Provape forum down in the supplier's section. I go there a couple times a week, but it is less busy than this one. No mention of the Provape-1 there that I can recall. In fact, I think I am the only one in months to start a thread on one there. When I first saw the Kicklet for sale on Super T Manufacturing's site I inquired there if anyone had a clue whether it would work on the Provape-1 to allow it to have variable wattage. It's been weeks since I made the post and no answers yet, not even from Provape reps.
I've since made the assumption that the 14500 battery is not strong enough to handle a Kick.

HEY! What are you trying to say about the L-Rider Robust?
I was torn between the Pro-1 and the Apex Alpha Ultra when looking for the perfect 14500 device. The Ultra won because of construction and looks. (I tolerate the switch). But I still visit the Pro-1 every time I stop by the house. Really fine tool.
I almost clicked the button to buy an L-Rider Robust, until I read user comments here on the forums and saw PBusardo's video review. Instead, I got a V V Gripper for the same price and it uses an 18650 battery that will last all day instead of 4-5 hours like the Robust's.

Well, if I did get the Provape-1, I hadn't planned on spending on extra stuff!!! It looks like not too many people own one. I just thought it may be good for going out and about. I msy check into the vv Gripper instead.
My primary vaping device is the extended Provari using an 18650. I love it to death, but for quick trips to the grocery or convenience store I wanted something smaller, and had been grabbing the BB for this use lately instead of the Provari. All the while, I would keep thinking to myself it would be great if someone made a V V mod of this size. I didn't like the eGo VV 14500 mod because the eGos are just so darn long. And like I said, I almost pulled the plug on the Robust until I read some negative reviews about it.
I had always liked the form factor of the Gripper, and read a thread here dedicated to the VV Gripper and watched the PBusardo video, and decided the price was right. I may still reward myself on my 1 year vape anniversary with a Provari mini, but I couldn't justify another $200 on a second Provari + batteries at the present time.
I've got a V1 provape-1 ,,it gets used every day !Considered getting another one even,,good size in the hand reliable !
THE MORTAR........ Solid Brass construction with copper post contacts.just pure raw power !!!!
