    Default protovapor xpv

    Hi, was wondering if any one has any experience with the protovapor xpv? looking for a new mod and like the looks of this one. wondering if any one has any experience with this one or the company. I know the mod is fairly new on the market.

    Well, I have two in the mail. The price was reasonable compared to other DNA 20 devices out there.....and I saved some money buying both sizes as a pair. I think performance wise, it will be the same as any other device of the same chip. Build quality I will let you know when I get them. The parts they spec on the site seem to be of decent quality...but I don't have them in hand yet.

    I will post a review after using them for a couple weeks.

    Thanks Frazz, was also looking at getting two. like the price but the specs of the hardware seems good. look forward to seeing your thoughts on their build quality

    I will be looking in on your review. Looks like a great mod but what worries me is the thing is anodized aluminum. As I understand it anodizing wrecks conductivity. I am wondering if they did a workaround with wire or did not use the case as part of the circuit.

    A pre-finish machined, rectangular, extruded tube can be anodized on the exterior while leaving the interior untouched. It can be done with dedicated sealing system racking, it can be done with plugs, wax and even, simply, just tape... so it could be either of the two conductivity schemes you've posed as possibilities.

    True

    I imagine they could just machine off the anodizing where the connections are. That's the thing... did they work around the issue?

    I guess we'll have an answer (perhaps) when Mr. frazz puts up a review... if it's possible for him to go into the device that is.

    I suppose one could e-mail or call, and just ask.

    I already sent them one.

    If they give a good answer and you like yours I am going to pick up one.
