    Hey gang,

    Loving my Provari V2 and getting another one next month, but in the meantime I'm looking for something for my wife. She stole my Vamo from me because she is a little intimidated by the menu of the Provari, and is afraid she might lose it or something. I'd like the Vamo back. Hehe.....

    she normally vapes store bought 808/901 disposable carts with an adapter and I refill them for her. Thing is, she usually vapes in the 3 -4 volt range so 3.7 would be just fine.

    I 've been checking out the Provape-1, and I need to know if the 18490 batts that I have with my V2 will work in the PV-1? Thanks....I am extremely impressed with Provape's products and feel that she needs something of that quality without all the bells and whistles.

    That's what's confusing me. She's not anywhere near as heavy a vaper as me so I think she's be okay with the power limits. Plus, I have several 18490 batts so she'd always have a couple spares on hand. And the price is flippin awesome... Just need a definitive answer.

    A second Provari was already going to happen as soon as the green LED comes back. She's used my Provari before and actually didn't like it because of the funky menu. I was just hoping I could get her something with the same build quality but in a much simpler form....she hates gadgety type thingies. Hahaha!

    Thank you, Mr. President! I needed to know about the difference in batts, and your size information clears that up for me. Awesome!

    Ok, I wasn't looking at the 14 & 18 part... All I was seeing was the 500.... The numbering system on these batts is a little confusing on the eyes sometimes... Once it was explained that there was a diameter difference, I realized where I was missing something.

    I still really think she'd be more than happy with something this simple. And I know she wouldn't freak out as much if she lost it vs. losing a Provari.... She's kinda flighty like that. Still mulling over my options. Thanks guys!

    Im telling you a fixed voltage mod does not cut it even with LR atomizers.. As that 14500 battery drains it will loose power(vapor production)... Plus as an atty ages its resistance changes, there is no way to adjust for that with a fixed voltage mod.. Buy her the Mini Provari.. you want her to have the best vaping experiance possible, dont you?

    The 14 and 18 refer to the Diameter of the battery. (14mm vs 18mm) The 49-50 refer to the length. (49mm, 50mm etc.) The last zero designates a tubular battery form. An 18650 is 18x65mm.
    There are also a lot of mechanical mods out there that you could use with a kick by evolv, that would solve her problem with no adjustments\menus at all. You would need to get a mod that would hold an 18650 or 18500 to use the kick, and you woud drop your battery length by one length to make up for the room that the kick takes. (Use an 18500 in an 18650 mod, or an 18350 in an 18500 mod)
    Hope this helps.

    If size is an issue, there is also the L-Rider Robust, in both a square and tubular form. It is variable volt with an extremely simple menu, uses a 14500 battery, and is tiny. The menu is 3 button so it is not nearly as annoying as the one on our Provaris. It doesn't really make it up to 6 volts in practice, probably tops out around 5 volts because of the limited battery, but works perfect for small rba's and clearos and cartos. My wife has one and loves it. If she isn't looking for giant plumes of vapor like you would get from an 18650 device with a Genesis then this could be the perfect thing for her.
