    Hi
    Considering the svd is dirt cheap on fasttech. Is the Provari worth the extra buck?

    Only if the 200 dollar price tag won't murder your wallet. My friend owns an svd and two provaris. He likes his provaris way more, but uses his svd as a throwaround heavy abuse device since it is cheap to replace

    A ford fusion and a lamborghini do the same thing, is the lamborghini worth the extra money ?:p

    Im not a Provari owner (yet) but i think most owners can tell you that build quality and customer service warant the extra funds for one. :2c:

    Well, in this case, one will outlive the other as well. Not sure how long the Fusion will be kicking around I suppose...


    Any, erm... facts/reasons to back that up?

    If you can afford it, I would go with the ProVari. It will last a long time and never disappoint you.

    The ProVari is amazing and if you have the cash then it isn't even a question.

    Do you want VV or VV/VW. That is the bigger question :)

    If money is an issue then look into a Vamo V3 from FastTech. Much better than the SVD imo.

    i could afford the provari i choose not get it. i just don't see anything special about it. yes it holds voltage nicely, but is that worth the $200+ price tag? not so sure. i have friends that have it.i even borrowed one from someone that is a provari fanatic and i cant say i saw any difference in performance from my svd or vamo. i just don't see the hype but that's just one guys opinion.

    and to comment about the vamo being better then the svd, it has the exact same 33hrtz chip and board in it, so not sure about that. it comes down to looks and personal preference really. the vamo has a oled screen thats pretty much the only difference. i would go for the svd. no tubes to pull off to use other batteries because its telescoping and its built really well. the physical components that make up the svd are just very well built and very easy to use. the screen is not a deal breaker for me because its not a tv. i am not staring at the screen for hours. heck the provari has a similar screen to the svd.

    I'd go with the SVD, it's built like a tank.

    I take my ProVari mini to work, in a factory. Any damage to it should be less then on cheaper mods IMO. And it's got a 2-year warrenty if I need a repair, so I don't worry about it. I can only vape at work on break and lunch, so I want something I don't have to think about too much.

    Where do you people get your info that a Provari costs over $200? A new blem costs $140 shipped. I hate the spreading of misinformation. You'll need batts and a charger for both, so saying that that factors into cost is infantile.

    This car was 46 years old when this film was made.

    The only way a Lambo lasts for 46 years is up on blocks.

    Provari reminds me of JL Audio in the car audio community. Great product but you can get the "same" for less. Interprept "same" as you wish, but you should get my point.
