    I'm worried because my old ProVari, the positive is very low and it is because I have compared my new ProVari.
    I have seen that to protect the thread on my new ProVari there are two solutions:
    -The hippo:


    - Thread ego:

    The first option is an option for me face, because with shipping cost me enough money, and the second option is very ugly for ProVari.

    Do you know any solution to protect the thread?

    Thank you.

    I've never had a problem damaging threads on my Provari's , but I do use the Hippo on one of them. I like the way it looks with larger atty's. The Hippo is well built, sturdy, but a bit pricey.

    The ProVari probably has one of the strongest 510 connections/threading and the sturdiest positive posts that exists.

    Damaging it shouldn't be an issue.

    I have banged a tank so hard that it sheared the threads off of a carto. The Provari threads are bulletproof.

    I agree with what everyone here is saying about, the threads on the provari being the best, but if you are still worried about it, try one of these air flow controllers, protects your threads, controls air and cheep. They are out of stock here but you get the idea.

    I don't think the mild mystery metal used in most devices which connect to a ProVari would even be able to damage the stainless threading of a Provari, would they?

    The OP is comparing an older ProVari with a new one. Is there a physical difference between the 2?

    I discovered that the connector on my 2.5 mini is a teeny, tiny bit higher than my 2.0. There is no difference in performance, but I have to use one more layer of airflow restriction when I use a Protank on it. I'm not the only member who has noticed this. I don't think I would have seen it if I wasn't vaping them back to back with the same tank.

    I have a v2 and ProVari ProVari 2.5 and same thing happens to you. When I put the KFL in v2, with the ring, I have to pull over to make contact and I wondered the same thing. By this, I thought the time ProVari with its thread going in and lower.

    Anyone else happens?

    you can see that in the ProVari 2.5 if there is empty space between the kayfun and ring, and in my old v2 no space either, is older so I wondered positive quality ...

    I'm not using anything as flush with the top cap as you are, so it's not as noticeable, but I think that's about the same height difference mine have.

    Baditude has also mentioned that his 2.0 and 2.5 connectors aren't quite the same height.

    If you get the 2nd option you can add on one of these ... they are both pretty cheap at FT -
