    Congrats, you will like it. Be sure to read/download the operating manual from the Provape web site.

    The Provari uses only button top IMR "high drain" batteries. Provape recommends the red AW IMR's for the Provari.

    Do not attempt to use flat top batteries or protected ICR li-ion batteries in a Provari.

    I'm sure you'll like it, and unless the postal service and ProVape are both overwhelmed you should receive in time for a Christmas vape.

    Somewhat pricey, but they are very well made. Won't take long to appreciate the build quality of the ProVari.

    Ah yes, like Bad stated, button tops only.

    You will not regret it! I only wish I would have got one sooner instead of wasting money on cigalike kits, I could have got 2 provaris for what I spent on junk.

    I have Efest 2000mAh 18650s, but they aren't high drain. Will that hinder my vaping? I just want to be sure, as I have 4 in rotation now, but don't mind snagging a set of new ones if it's a better vape.
    Thx, in advance.

    Not IMR? I use the Efest 2250 Mah IMR, (black label) button tops in mine and they work fine. The red or maybe its orange 2000 mah Efest are a high drain battery, if they are button tops they should work just fine.

    Efest IMR 18650 LiMn 2000mAh Battery - Button Top If this is what you have, they should work.

    Black label Efest IMR 18650 HD 2250mAh Battery - Button Top

    Of course ProVape recommends AW, however other batteries will work. They do need to IMR or other unprotected high drain button tops though.

    The links provided are for reference, you may find better deals elsewhere.

    Steve,
    I do, in fact, have the first Efest 18650s you listed (the red label ones). I'll try out the black label versions though, and see how they vape.

    Thanks!

    I ended up snagging a pair of orbtronics 18650s and a pair of AW 18490s. While I am excited for both, I am amazed at some of the reviews I watched on the orbtronics. For $10,i couldn't pass them up. Thanks for putting me on the right path.

    When I got my 2250 MAH Efest the Orbtronics, Panasonic and AW were rare. However one of the flashlight forums state the 2250 Efest were rewrapped Panasonic, just like the Orbtronics. I would say you made a good choice, now you just have to wait for the ProVari and you should have a great Christmas.
