    I haven't dropped mine yet. With my luck I'm sure I will, I have the pink provari mini so I'm worried about marks. It doesn't have the shiny top coat like the satin and chrome finishes.

    Dropped my box mod(s) numerous times upon exiting my vehicle, but I've yet to do the same with my Provari. Something about it's weight serves as a constant reminder to be mindful concerning how I handle it.

    Oh, it's tumbled from my desk onto the carpeted floor at work a couple times, and a couple low falls from a futon at home. Other than that I've done rather well.

    About that fall into the toilet...I visualized something like that occurring. For that reason I make sure I holster my pv prior to standing up whenever I use the facilities.

    Woohoo!!! mad it my first full week on my new Provari without dropping it. Totally thought I would have by now;) Almost did whilst trying to put one of our foster dogs in her kennel but I made a matrix-style save before it hit the floor.

    made this now, so hopefully I can keep it from getting damaged:

    Mine's rolled out of the car onto concrete a couple of times. I've learned to grab it before I get out. There's one little tiny scratch on the extended battery cap that I have to hold it and roll it back and forth in the right light to detect, but nothing else. Satin finish stainless is a tough cookie!

    Hoosier, your Provari name rubbing off made me curious. The brand name is supposed to be laser etched into the steel. That would create relief and make me think that they apply a little paint or stain and then rub it off to highlight the letters. I'm wondering if doing that would restore your brand on the Provari. Don't blame me if it doesn't work, but that's just my assumption if it's really laser etched. A magnifier might reveal more detail.

    I vape 2 ohm cartos at 3.4v or thereabouts. If I have to increase the voltage, that means it's beginning to be time to change to a new carto.

    3 ohm cartos I vape at 4.0v to 4.2v. I have never seen a need to go any higher with my 100%pg juices. I get heavy vapor and the taste I want. I'm not a warm vapor guy anyway. I didn't enjoy the last few tokes on a cigarette (close to the filter) when I smoked either.

    Yeah I always had a habit of leaving things on my lap when I'm driving and getting out of my car only to have said item(s) fall out onto the concrete. I just knew that habit would translate over to my provari so I just kept on paying special attention and I didn't drop it for the longest time, but the dreaded day came when i got out of my car after getting home from work with my provari on my lap.. I felt a heaviness roll over on my thigh as I was getting out and instinctive reflexes kicked in and I happened to catch the provari on the way down on my shin and it rolled perfectly down my leg and over the curve of my lower leg/foot.. and it rolled off the tip of my foot gently onto the grass next to the driveway lol. I guess thats my only near-drop experience so far.

    Oh man. I can't tell you the amount of plastic drip tips I've broken from dropping my Provari/Vivi Nova tank. At least 7 or 8. I've dropped my Provari while getting out of my Suburban many times, as well as various other cars. It's a little beat up, but it soldiers on.

    When you've dropped it with a trippy on, that will hurt more. ;)

    Ok...I sort of join this silly butterfingers club.

    I was at a comedy club having drinks, feet on a chair. Provari resting between my crossed legs. I uncrossed my legs...bye bye pyrex tank :( The weight of the provari killed it...but that means the provari itself took no damage at all. I had a spare tank with me.
