    I may be overstepping boundaries here, but I posted this up in the ProVape forum. It definitely isn't right and there's no way I would be satisfied with the answer you received.

    I bought a white one a month back and it got a couple of nicks off its paint. It is grey under the white.
    I guess it is average wear and tear, but your situation seems completely absurd.
    Anyhow, I got a black mini as well this week. I hope the paint lasts longer.

    On a side note, has anyone noticed the button feeling different on every Provari?
    The ones I ordered with red LED felt flimsier while the black one I got recently with the blue LED has a stiffer button.

    dang... that totally sucks. I got a black one for a week before wrapping it and now I'm really glad I did that. side note: your wrap does look very good. -___-;; hope they respond to the thread in the provape forum. That's just not right man.

    It looks like a ProVape rep stepped up and sent the OP a PM! Hopefully they are getting it worked out.

    Looks like the OP is getting a new tube under warranty. I'm glad to see Provape made the correct call on this one.

    Aren't those wrap they provide from jwraps? Anyway I just gotten my v2 mini, I'm just concern that the paint will peel off if I remove the wrap after sometime.

    Stainless is definitely the toughest finish for a Provari. I like the looks of the various other finishes, but chose the satin SS for durability and cost. Mine has been with me like a pacifier for a year now and still looks good after rolling off the car seat multiple times onto concrete and asphalt. If you look closely in a bright light and rotate it, you can see tiny scratches in a couple of places.

    The wraps are also nice looking. I think ordering SS saves money and gives you the option to customize it with a wrap after purchase.

    Still a good choice. If you get tired of plain satin you can add a wrap and take it off if you change your mind.

    I wouldn't be concerned about the paint coming off with the wrap. Cerekote is EXTREMELY durable and I doubt a sticker would effect the finish at all. I think the incident in this thread is a one-off... there was obviously a curing issue with the coating.

    I just got an email from ProVape that my ProVari is on it's way back with a brand new tube. :) As soon as I got the email I bought a clear Jwrapp though. I'm not taking any chances this time. :toast:

    Paint should be fine. But a lot of v2 logo fading off :laugh: I'm carefully handling mine trying not to have contact with the logo till wrap arrive. And hope the wrap doesn't takes the logo away when removed.
