    Well I pulled the trigger on a ibtank (22 xl) and some m4 I'd been waffling on.
    I have some batteries and bigger charger sitting in my cart at fasttech and I am staring at provari cart and eyeballing my debit cart in a way that is making it uncomfortable. Lol.

    Maybe you should look at it this way. What kind of vaper are you? Has this turned into a hobby? If so, I would imagine trying new devices is part of the fun. That being said, where do you go from a Provari? I've never tried one, but I think the following it has on this site should speak for it.

    With the cost of the Provari, you could try out at least two other mods. If you buy the Provari, you're gonna want it to be your go to for a long time I imagine. If that's no problem I say get it. If you think you may get bored with using the same device for a long time, I'd say check out the MVP. Who knows, you may be all like, 'what's a Provari?'

    Hope this helps.

    ProVape isn't going anywhere there's no hurry. I am concerned about the batteries from FastTech though. When you invest in a quality device, the last thing you want to scrimp on are the batteries. ProVape recommends AM IMR. In any case, you want unprotected IMR (safe chemistry) batteries.

    These are the batteries I use in my minis and my charger (which I think is sold on FastTech).

    That's the charger I'm eyeballing. I have a cheap single bay I got with my first mod (zmax) which works but I'd prefer a bit better. I'm wondering if 2 bays or 4. I can't imagine needing to charge 4 at a time, but ideally I'd like to charge a weeks worth at a time. I put trust fire imrs in cart and currently have 3 18490 and 1 18650 efest which I imagine should be fine in provari.

    The provari that got me reconsidering one might go away

    I've been fine with a 2 bay. The only time I have more than 2 batteries to charge is when I've been lax about charging them as soon as they need it. I have at least 2 batteries per mod (that's how I keep track), so I never run out.

    Just a hint, batteries and chargers with the word "Fire" in them can be a problem.

    Are you buying batteries from Fast Tech? There's been issues about packages not making it through China customs and are being sent back to Fast Tech. Then they have to send your package out ground so be prepared to wait 45 - 60 days.

    Once you see Bad's pics and read his post you might feel very differently about living dangerously- esp where vaping is concerned.
