    i got my SVD from fasttech last week... and while it has okay build quality, it's nowhere near as good as the Provari. the SVD still has a rattle and the threads are very crunchy. plus SVD's have an issue with the contact connecting with cartos and such. Also, there was pretty dirty when it it arrived in the box brand new and had scratches/knicks all over the little ring that the collar ring sits on top of.

    I don't think it's necessarily fair to compare it to a Provari. It's a real nice mod, even at the $60 (non Fasttech) price. Yes, there are some issues with the connector (my Tatroe won't work with the beauty ring), but it's REALLY COOL looking and quite well built; especially when compared to the immediate competition.

    Is it my first choice? No. Am I glad I got it? Unequivocally YES. And I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice tube mod at a good price.

    LOL I noted the same thing.
    My first mod, I figured - "that's weird, but OK, I'll follow the instructions".
    It's just plain wrong!
    Fortunately, the SVD has "reversed battery protection" so it just doesn't do anything til you flip it around the way that makes sense - with the negative of the battery at the end marked "duh" negative (the bottom).

    I have owned an SVD since thery came out. And then a second one a week ago. And both from fasttech. I cant disagree more. Mine is well made, threads well and not crunchy, makes perfect contact with any topper I use. Its certainly does not rattle. I say this while Im vaping from my Provari.

    Im sorry yours seems defective. I would send it back to FT and get another one. They have a great return policy whiuch I have used.

    You got a lemon dude! Return it! MY unit was in pristine condition. Like I said, I have been machining for right at 30 years, have parts on the space station too. Innokin is producing a very nice and sturdy unit for a much lower price. I have seen a lot of machine tools made in China, and that's where I saw a lot of cutting corners to save a buck, but not here. These guys are getting good.......

    eh, it was only $37... it's now having weird issues where none of the buttons function once in a while. but it's my backup so as long as it works, i don't mind.

    let me tell you, this thing has a lot of metal vs metal squeal that sends chills in my spine when telescoping. i know mine is not the only one because i saw a review from grimm green that does the same thing. maybe i'm just used to premium level quality of the provari since it was my 1st mod.

    That's a shame. You are correct, that is a sign of crappy threads. Either the ID or OD threads are out of tolerance to get that vibrating squeal. Can you believe I had a B&M owner try to tell me that was a sign of good threads, as she screwed a Kanger on an Ego knockoff. :facepalm: I politely gave her "Threads 101" and even drew her a little picture. I doubt we have gauges to check that specific thread pitch, but I can check the OD threads with wires at least. I guess I got lucky, mine are smooth with very minimal wiggle. Probably different suppliers. I have another one coming in, will be interesting to see what I get.

    interesting, but I didn't expect much from the SVD, i mean it was less than $40 haha. Plus mine has a very low quality looking dull black plastic screen instead of the nice shiny one.

    Can an SVD safely measure resistance without firing? I have one on order and would like to start rebuilding protank heads.

    my vamo fell to pieces and started to smoke this morning- luckily my local brick and mortar had the Innokin SVD in stock, right out of the box it feels more sturdy vs the vamo, and I find the user controls easy to pick up.

    I had an MVP and loved it, went with the vamo for the price, should have gotten the SVD right off of the bat

    Mine has a dull piece of protective shipping plastic that can be pealed off to reveal the shiny screen...

    day 2 with my SVD- it kills the vamo, sort of glad my vamo fell apart and my local brick and mortar had the SVD. I also like the new iClear 30's it came with, I was using the 16's
    ;)

    This thread gives me hope. I purchased an SVD in the classified on a whim, should be here sometime next week.

    I use the small extension tube with an 18650 battery. There is some play in the top part "brains" and extension tube when tightened with the battery. Anyone have this problem and figure out how to fix it or make it less noticeable.
