    Found this in my closet from my previous (and brief) last attempt at quitting smoking. I figured I still had it around somewhere and sure enough I found it. Dramatically underpowered by today's standards, but from reading copious amounts of vape related content of late, it seems these devices are somewhat iconic nowadays. I remember even back then it was very very expensive compared to the competition. I put a battery in it, and it does still work, but when I screwed in my tank it gave me an "output too high" error message.

    I’d think it’s like trying to run too many watts/volts for the ohm rating of your atomizer. By the way many still use their Provari today. They aren’t really underpowered as long as your running 1+ohm atomizers that don’t need to be vaped at 50-100 watts

    Agree with madstabber. Many vapers are still using a Provari today. They are affectionately known as Tootle Puffers (defined as a low wattage, higher ohm vaper). They also tend to be MTL (mouth to lung) style vapers.

    What was the resistance of the atty that you tried on the Provari? Anything over 1.2 ohm should have made some vapor. You might need to clean the battery contacts (+ and -) in the Provari with cotton-tipped applicator and some rubbing alcohol, too.

    Look on pages 28 & 29 in the P3 owners manual located on that ProVape USB key pictured next to your P3. Reduce volts/watts ... also be sure your boost mode setting isn't too high. Try a different atomizer.

    Yes, many of us low wattage folks who are new to Provape just love their products. Definitely something you could use with a higher resistance tank, and the vape is still great. Or, if you sell it, I am certain it would be snatched up (here, on Ebay, etc.)

    Sometimes it's nice to keep a little history, though. Or, not. :)

    I'm a proud owner of three Provari's, one Reo Grand, and two Silver Bullets. They no longer fit easily into my current vape preferences, but there is NO WAY I will ever get rid of them.

    IMHO, all three models were iconic, classic, gold standards at one point in time in the short history of vaping. Truly history.
