    ^This is exactly why I bought the mini. Don't get me wrong, I love it! But I can count on one hand the number of times I've used it in 18350 OR 18500 mode. 99% of the time, I use it just like it sits in the pic.

    It is nice to have options though. Even if those options are never exercised

    Haha yes exactly, the choice is a great thing. There's no point in buying a full now imho because if a mini does everything a full can do and more then why buy the full? I'm not a whole design geek so I'm not really in it for the looks, I'm in it for the performance.

    Right - with a mini, you can do 18350, or 18490 with an extension cap, or 18650 with a ring and an extension cap (or with 2 rings and the regular cap...etc).
    With a standard, you cannot do 18350.

    I bought a mini first, as one MAIN reason I got it was to have a more compact device. But I found I almost always went with 18490 mode (that's still compact enough!) - so my second one, I got a standard. Now I can do all three sizes - but I almost always use them both with 18490's after all. That size is just my favorite - lasts long enough for a work day, but tucks nicely into a jacket pocket...

    Ohhh I see your reasoning.

    I didn't really think about that. I don't think I will ever use an 18350 battery in my provari either so maybe the full could be well suited towards someone like me. My brain is going to explode so much to consider when picking a device.

    I really appreciate all this help though its been really good and it is all very much appreciated!

    It's just funny, that ProVape just got it right all along. The regular model, stock battery is the 18490, and that battery just seems to be the perfect size....enough power to go a full day, yet small enough to keep the ProVari conveniently small

    ProVari- the closest to owning a Sonic Screwdriver a mere human can get!

    Plus, there are the looks...
    Some people don't like "crop circles". I don't mind them.
    I DO kinda like the all-black look of my mini with an extension cap...
    Other people like to play with things like brass for the extension and top rings, etc...

    Well, thanks to the classifieds I will be an official provari owner soon enough this week.

    Hahahah yes they probably were! The guy who sold it to me is super nice, and I thought the bundle and all for the price was unbeatable. It worked out really well, and in perfect timing I might add.

    He said it's been used for less than a year, but I see people posting about how they've had theirs forever, and never given them any problems. So my thought is, hey I mean this looks like a good deal and even though it's used a provari is a provari and should work just as well for me now than a new one would or close to it.
