    Several have asked if the ProVari is just “assembled” in the US or “made” in the US, so to address this questions here are some details:

    The ProVape-1 and ProVari are actually MADE and ASSEMBLED in the USA.

    Parts - Machined right here in Monroe, WA. We use US-made stainless steel bar stock to produce the tubes, top caps, bottom caps, contact pins, etc. Everything is done on our machines locally. No outsourcing.

    Bare Circuit Boards - Manufactured in Illinois. We do not purchase the circuit boards from China due to their poor quality. While the circuit boards are more expensive to produce in the USA; this is the heart of the system and it’s important to us that they are the best quality we can get. Each PCB is electronically tested before it ever sees components.

    Electronic Components on Circuit Board – these are the only parts that might come from outside of the USA. Some of these parts are simply not made in the US, so we can’t get them from a US source, even though we would prefer to.

    We use components from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, China and the USA.


    Component assembly - Components are soldered onto the circuit boards at a facility outside Seattle, Washington. After getting components installed, the boards are tested several more times at our Monroe facility to ensure they are ready to ship. We test each one multiple times to give you the most reliable product you can get.

    We don't cut any corners when it comes to quality control, testing, and component selection.


    We love to hear all the positive comments about the ProVari and PV1. Thank you for your support! :)

    I'm glad to find a USA-made/manufactured (to the degree feasible) PV. The quality and durability, the reputation, and the "keeping my money invested in the economy of my own country" are all huge factors for me.

    I am glad to hear this.
    It definitely makes me feel better about the cost.
    Of course, now that I have had mine for a couple of weeks, I don't know how I lived without it before.

    Maybe you should laser etch "proudly made in the USA" on them!:2c:

    I love the made in the USA! It's pretty hard to fine products sold here that are actually made here in the USA anymore, but I am proud to have my provari! Excellent device and the best quality PV I have to date.

    Yeah...appears to be a fraudulent listing. Hope ProVape can tear them a new one.

    Robert Nilsson(2012-5-7 11:53:48)

    The fact that your products are made in the U.S. was a HUGE factor in my purchasing decision. Just knowing that a business does everything they can to ensure our country's economical infrastructure, and is contributing to the employment rate in our country speaks VOLUMES, in my opinion.

    I definitely agree with the poster above. Having a "Made in the U.S.A" stamp on the product itself., as well as marketing that fact would definitely increase your bottom line. When doing my own WOM marketing, on your company's behalf, I always stress that this is a U.S.-made product, and I say it with pride! :)

    It's probably the Smoktech V-max and they used ProVari images.

    The ad shows 10,000,000 units available per week. That pretty much proves it's a sham since I don't think ProVape has stockpiled more than 5,000,000 units in Guangdong China!

    Yes, its a scam and just goes to show how low they will go. The legal team is working on this.
