    What a pleasant suprise !! These things actually work very well for me --- it amazes me how far the industry has come in a few short years.
    I am currently running the head that is marked 2.4 ohms (it tests out at 2.5) on my Provari running at 4.3 volts. Vapor, throat hit, draw and flavor are all great and it is convenient to re-fill. If they last a reasonable length of time I am going to be a happy camper.

    I just got mine in the mail today, and feel the exact opposite. Draw is too tight. No flavor, vapor sucks, and throat hit is non existent. I'm running the same head on a provari as well.

    Is it a Vision ViVi?

    Whoa - now you have me concerned - I am going to fill a second one to see if my results are consistant. Do you know what version yours is ? Mine have the long wicks and the air holes are in the threaded shaft (like a regular carto). From what I understand the original version (V1) had the air hole in the side of the bottom threaded cap.

    As KrasH pointed out there are some knock offs floating around which are of considerably poorer quality.

    I have nothing but good things to say about my ViVi Nova's

    I have several Vision ViVi Nova's and they all perform wonderfully. I have had one knock off and it was horrible. Unless you know for a fact you are getting the original product, I do not recommend you buy one. Wick lengths won't tell you anything as the heads come with various setups. Plus these can be truly rebuilt using SS mesh, cotton, hemp or just about any wick you want to use.

    They advertised them as Vision. They are a very reputable site too. I doubt they're knock offs.

    I just filled and fired a second one and I got the same good results - I would say that it could be an individual preference if it was just based on taste or hit, but I am getting large vapor and I don't take long draws

    I just upped the voltage some more, and it's better. Flavor is still off though. Maybe I've been spoiled by my z atty :)

    Just checked the site (avidvaper) and the pics look like the knockoff version... does your tank actually say "Vivi Nova" right below the 0.00ml indication ... it should IMG_5575.jpg

    I looked at visionecigar.com, and do not see AvidVaper on their distributor list. I just emailed them about it.

    Sorry to hijack the thread lol

    GotVapes carries the real ones.

    The ones with the cone shaped top cap is not Vision, they are Unicig, a knock off.

    From what I hear, anything has a tight draw once you're used to a Zen~ product. You lucky duck. :) Sorry to hear about your vivi woes. Hope things get sorted out for you.

    Even the faked ones have the logo on the tank I have found. This is exactly why I find a reliable vendor and stick with them, even if I pay a few dollars more. It is worth it when I know I am getting the real product.
