    I'm curious to find out the results too. Does it matter if the battery is in or out when it's dunked in water? I don't have the guts to do it on purpose to one of mine.

    A challenger appears...



    One of my first egos back in July last year, its now currently being used by my wife. This "thing" as we call it apparently will never die, has been through several laundry cycles, never rice bag dried, dropped countless times, the most recent rolling off a 2nd story balcony onto a concrete deck. Still fires like when I first purchased it.

    This used to be coated with a black synthetic rubber, but started to flake off after then 2nd or 3rd laundry cycle.

    Looks like a mech with an accelerated patina. I'd put it on a shelf and admire it daily.

    Opus, I'll wager your Provari fires up without a hitch after a thorough drying out, but then again, even if it doesn't, couldn't you just send it in and pay the fee to get a new board installed?

    I performed the test with an old 18490 in it. If your ProVari took an accidental bath, it would have a battery in side most likely. However, I'm not a complete fool. I threw out the battery. Li-Ion's are no joke, so I'm not putting a battery that I completely submerged on a charger. I did reuse the E-LVT review cause there were only a couple of drops on the battery and although nothing happened, I never felt comfortable with that battery so I trashed it...(It was a flat top, so couldn't use it with a ProVari anyway.)
    ProVari: It's nothing more than a metal tube with a button on it that is well built and accurately delivers a set voltage continuously under load.

    I am sitting CRACKING UP! Honestly, I can't wait to see what you do NEXT.

    I'm going to ship you a bunch of movies (Rocky, etc.) just to prompt the actions, now that I know what "inspires" you.

    Oh yeah, and stay the heck away from my mods.
