    I'm fine with the EHPro vape (same model as you). Is it Dicodes good? No, of course not. But one costs $20, and the other.... "More". :ohmy:

    Nowhere near the build quality either, but for a cheap imitation, I still feel it's quite good. I LOVE my Dani V3 tube, and I LIKE my EHPro. Again though, that's like comparing apples & cauliflower. ;)

    I don't think I said the Ephro was bad, just not the greatest machining and kind of "eh." I don't hate it. I also don't think it's good either.

    But, yeah it is a bit like comparing Charlotte to Wilbur. They should have eaten the pig and saved the spider.

    No, you didn't say it was bad. Just "eh, meh, and suck" for you.

    Vaping is subjunctive.

    The dicodes are comparable to the provari.
    They are very well made. I have two. Expensive too but worth it in my opinion.

    Dood I had to look that up in the dictionary and I'm STILL not entirely clear. LOL.

    Yes I did say eh, meh and suck, I also said it wasn't TERRIBLE. I was comparing it to a provari, to be honest. I don't think it's a great product OR a terrible one. It is proably one of the more cost effective options. but it's exactly sort of what I said, not terrilbe, not fantastic.

    Do you think it's remotely comperable to a provari? Just don't want the person to be disappointed. Etc.

    The EHPro 101+ (75W version that takes 20700/21700 battery too) performs very well. Only needs to get used to the ‘one button’ control of the menu and settings.
    You also got the ‘cheaper’ Cthulhu Tube Mod, which has two size configuration (18350 and 18650).
    The Vapor Giant plain Tube Mod is another lower price ‘high end’ tube mod.

    sorry i haven't been able to check in and much thanks to those who have replied! i forgot just how helpful this community is!!

    thanks! going to be looking into this and hopefully find a US vendor as another person noted.

    this is good info to have and thank you! this might actually be dealbreaker as i am getting one for my mother as well and don't want her to have to deal with all of that.

    thank you for these...i might have to do this but am going to look around some more.

    thanks for the words of encouragement...oh, and i am a member of the provarinati! i have a 2 and 3 but need to get them serviced and was hoping to get a tube mod for my mother as well.

    thanks! i do have 2 provaris but need to send them away to get serviced. i am also looking for one for my mother so if i don't find one i might just get her a used one from the classifieds.

    those are gorgeous and my mom would love it...too bad its so wide though, probably too big for her hands.

    thanks again to everyone!

    i am only noticing now that you had posted in this thread. good to see that you're still around. i remember you from years ago when i first started and owe you a great debt in getting me off cigarettes. your beginner instructions blogs were fantastic, i actually miss using cartomizers. thank you for everything!!

    i'm wondering what kind of tank setup you're using these days? are you rebuilding or buying premade?

    Some stockpilers have been known to still throw one into rotation every now and then. ;):D:vapor:

    Thank you for the kind words. :thumb:

    Although I know how to rebuild, I've become lazy in my retirement years and now use modern clearomizer tanks almost exclusively. I've been using the Original Uwell Crown clearo with the 0.5 ohm factory replacement coils for about 4 - 5 years now. I stopped recommending them a year ago as it appeared that Uwell was discontinuing the coils, but apparently the popularity of the tank and coils has prompted Uwell to continue production. IMHO, still the best clearomizer tank and coils ever made.

    I occassionally use the Geekvape Cerberus sub-ohm tank, because they came to me free for doing reviews for the Aegis Mini and Solo, but its also a pretty decent tank. Geekvape doesn't make a coil for the wattage range I prefer (25 - 30 watts), so I find I need to turn the wattage way down on the 0.2 ohm mesh coil to about 15 - 20 watts instead of its recommended 30 - 90 watts.

    I also like the Freemax Fireluke 2 clearo tank, which sits on my backup JAC Vapour 75W. It does have a major downside to it as its top juice fill doesn't lock properly and can leak an entire tankfull of juice if you're not extremely careful.

    Since you've been away for a while you might not have heard that Provape closed down. There is one guy who used to work there who still services Provaris, though he stopped earlier this year. Last I heard he was planning to start back up towards the end of this year but I don't know if that happened. Here's his contact info anyway.

    Also if you need your PV in the hospital, I would do it sooner rather than later. He is running out of new parts and is putting "refurbished" boards into some of them, was the email I got last from him.

    My PV came back looking and working great but I am not so sure how much longer he will be around. Etc.
