    I just got my provari today and I get an E8 error code when checking ohms for more than 3seconds. Any idea?

    The user manual is on Provapes website but this is the list of error codes & what they stand for straight from the site...

    • E4 – Input Voltage to DC/DC converter error - Contact ProVape.
    • E5 – Converter has a problem - Contact ProVape.
    • E6 - Microprocessor has a problem – Contact ProVape.
    Error Codes
    Errors – There are a number of safety monitors built into the ProVari and its always checking for problems. If a problem is detected the display will show a two digit error
    code for 4 seconds alerting you of a problem. The following are the error codes:
    • E1 – Short Circuit / Shorted Atomizer – If this error appears, remove the atomizer and replace with a different one
    or lower your voltage settings. The ProVari will automatically reset when the problem is fixed.
    • E2 – Current Limit Exceeded – If this error appears, lower the voltage on the device or use a higher resistance
    atomizer. Once the problem has been fixed, the ProVari will reset itself.
    • E3 – Thermal Monitor – If this error appears, let the device cool off for several minutes before using again.
    • E7 – Voltage output detected when there should be none – This can be caused by a converter fault or by an open atomizer. Only contact ProVape if you know the atomizer is good and the problem persists.
    • E8 – Converter has detected a fault – Contact ProVape is this persists.

    Have you tried another clearo or carto?

    When you get to "AO", just let it sit there and display the ohms. Don't hold down/press the button. I get an E8 error too if I hold the button down while it's trying to display the ohms.

    With sixteen years working in information technology, I’ve spent a lot of time debugging things that are not working as expected. :laugh:

    I just got my Provari two days ago and same thing happened to me and vangOgh is dead on with the problem I had. It hasn't happened again. One time only! BTW did I mention how flippin AWESOME this thing is. I bought a temp topper while I wait for my Kayfun Lite Plus, IBTanked various tanks, VM, VX, Prometey, and Achilles, but I have a feeling I may keep this in my rotation as it is an excellent topper. Maybe I just need to buy more Provari's, lol. What color should I make my next one?

    The black/red hybrid is pretty nice! Im loving mine. I was kind of torn between that or the Seahawks blue/green but in the end decided I liked the black and red just a little bit more
