    Which is a better buy? I gotta say I am leaning towards the Lava tube v2.

    I know the provari is pretty popular but the lava tube shows promise.

    I got the popcorn in the microwave. But, in the mean time... I chose my Provari over many others for these reasons. 1) They are built to last and feel like it. 2) 1yr warranty, try to find a Lavatube, Vamo, or Zmax with that. 3) Form factor, they just fit right in my hand, the others were too big. 4) You get the voltage you set throughout the batteries charge. 5) If I manage to break it outside of warranty Provape will fix for a reasonable charge. Can't do that with the others.

    Do some research and see what you think best fits your needs. I'd recommend watching Pbusardo's reviews on the devices your looking at. Good luck in your search.

    Provari seems to be a great choice on the forums. I'm going to invest in one soon. Have not tried either tho, so can't really answer your question.. Sorry. If it were me I'd do the provari... I have heard good & bad things about volcano.. Never heard a bad thing about provari...IMO

    yeah it does seem cheap, not really a serious consideration.

    Basically, when all is said and done, how long do you want your mod to last you?

    The Lavatube likely has a short warranty, then if something goes wrong with it, you are out of luck. There's no support for the product thereafter.

    With the Provari, you'll get a full year's warranty, the option to purchase an additional year, and after that if something goes wrong with it, Provape will still fix it for pre-set, already determined fees for repair. So if you are looking for a mod for the long haul, you can't do better than a Provari.

    There are rational reasons why the Provari costs more up front. You get what you pay for.


    There! I got sucked into another one of these Provari vs ******* threads. :facepalm:

    OK, I'm ready for my popcorn. :pop:

    It's made in China. The Chinese business model doesn't do repairs, the sell more inferior products.

    There. I said it. Let the flames begin. :evil:

    The default battery for the regular sized Provari is the 18490 battery. An extension cap allows using the 18650 battery.
