So here is what we have:
Build quality, warranty, customer service and simplicity.
Just my speculation but I haven't heard allot of other cheap mods fail.
I have had my MVP2 almost 2 months now. I know that's not long but it works great, has all the features and has long run times.
In the end if you have a Provari thats cool.
If you have a affordable Chinese mod cool.
Whatever fits your budget and makes you happy.
For now my "Honda" is making me happy.

3 Reasons (There are more but these are the biggest)
1. Made in the USA, top quality.
2. Warranty... a damn good one at that.
3. Voltage accuracy.
I like my provari, but since Provape doesn't give me a commission every time someone buys one I really don't care if anyone else wants one.
The biggest and most common mistake is buying product after product searching for that perfect vape
instead of learning how to get that perfect vape from the products you already have.
What everyone else said......
All it would take is for a company like SONY, PANASONIC, or even some of the third-tier electronics brands to come in and make a device. It would be better built, lighter, you wouldn't have to remove the battery for charging, would have most if not all the features, and be guaranteed to last a year.
The funny thing is that the device would be made right along side all these cheap-poorly conceived-corner-cutting devices we have now, but the QC would be top notch because those big-name companies know how to bend the Chinese to their will over QC.
And they could do it between $65.00 - $110.00 and bring the E-cig into the main-stream because they are mass producing on a large scale. They could literally wipe out all these low-quality devices in about 3-4 months time with the higher-quality higher-priced devices taking about a year or so to die off unless they decided to come down to earth about their R&D and pricing policies.
This won't happen until the Feds give their stamp of approval, the regulations are in place, etc. The big companies are waiting for that to happen, but they are watching and are probably spending some R&D capital on designs as I type this. a brand new market that no-one else has been able to tap yet with reasonable prices, build quality, and warranty. If these Chinese companies want to stay in the game, they are going to have to get their act together or it may be all-over for them very soon. Provari will last a good deal longer, but in the end their business will wane and their prices will have to come down and they will have to be willing to spend a lot more on R&D to keep up.
Ford didn't invent the car, but they did invent the low-priced quality built car produced on an assembly line that caused the car and the combustible engine to go mainstream because Joe down the street could now afford one.
Same theory applies to a ProVari. It is designed, built and tested to last. I dropped mine from a height of 17 feet. It bounced, landed on its side. Took a little divot out of the bottom cap. It still works as if nothing happened. Try that with a Vamo.
ProVari - "MADE" in the USA
Provape Team Interview by Spinfuel Magazine
I have an MVP, too. It's a great mod and I recommend them all the time. It's a great bang for the buck. It's a pretty durably built mod, but nowhere near that of a Provari. It also can't touch my two Provari's in the way they feel in my hand and the vaping experience they give. The Provari's processor allows for a smoother vape. Not everyone will notice this, but I do. That is why my Provari's are used 95% of the time over my other eight mods. People can not understand this until they actually use and own a Provari.
I find comfort knowing that, in the unlikely event that my Provari would need servicing, Provape will do so for as long as I own one. And have it back to me good as new within a week's time. I've had Chinese made mods fall apart after 2 months and out of warranty support. They were a throwaway and a waste of my hard-earned money.
Provari's are the only regulated mod that is built as durable as a mechanical mod. There are legendary stories of the abuse that Provari's have gone through and continued to work. I've gotten to the point where, when I drop mine I look for the damage it has caused from the impact, not for damage to the Provari.
You won't find a more dependable, consistant, and durable mod that just does what it was designed to do. It doesn't have "bells & whistles" that don't really improve your vape. China would do well to follow Provape's model, but that will never happen. Their motto might as well be, "We build cheap. You buy cheap. It break, you buy another."
The Provari has been the golden standard of regulated mods for 3 years running. Many manufacturers have attempted to unseat it, but all have failed. For being such a small company, Provape has made an exceptional product and delivers unmatched customer service.

I compare the Provari like tools. Provari = Snap-On or Craftsman. The others = Harbor Freight
Or if you prefer, like firearms. Provari = Colt. The others = Chinese copy of Colt.
