    agreed! Have you seen the provari version 3? Not on sale yet but soon will be, does vv and vw, max 20 watts I think. Does sub ohm but not sure how low, maybe .6 or .7. Nice looking machine!

    I've had my SVD for little over a week w a Nautilus Mega, BVC and 18650's and love this Mod. Yes its big and heavy but it feels solid in my hands and the looks I get when people see it makes me laugh. Great vapor out put at just 8w and full flavor. I can easily go 15 hrs on the battery and a filled tank and I vape quite often. Good to see that others enjoy their SVD as much as me - Vape on brothers & Sisters :toast:

    Yep, almost all SVD's are great for the first month. Give it a couple more weeks and see if it's still that great. Unfortunately, SVD's have a twisted sense of humor. They make us fall in love with them and then dump us on the side of the road after a month.

    I've been thinking about this for a while now. I used to be a big Innokin flag waving fan. Loved my SVD, really loved my MVP 2. And their toppers are generally pretty good. That being said, My first SVD's button all but died on me after a month and my second one is doing ok because i use it rarely. My MVP 2 started out great as well but now I get the joy and privilege of adjusting it's 510 center pin 5 times a day so it can make contact with my various RDA's/toppers.

    So glad I went mechanical....and even more happy that I got away from Innokin. They have some work to do in order to bring this former fan back into the fold.

    I do love my SVD.

    So much, I talked a newbie on this forum into getting one. She told me she was waiting for her delivery from an eBay purchase.



    Never heard from her and she's never posted here since.

    Do not judge Innokin by the SVD. This was their one failure in a lineup of great mods. The VTR, MVP, Cool Fires are excellent. How they fell down on the job with this one I know not.

    Sorry to say, everyone, but it's time I abandoned ship.

    Last night I purchased a ProVari Mini from someone here. I couldn't wait for them to come out with their VW version.

    I love my SVD, it's absolutely great. The telescopic tube, the stainless steel, the weight of it especially. I am a tree-man, so I need something that can withstand the abuse and the SVD has proven itself in that aspect.
    Unfortunately, like so many other people have experienced, the firing button is going out. I've found a few different fixes, but I don't want to strip it down and try to repair it until I have something else.
    Althought the firing button isn't completely gone yet, it is somewhat bothersome at times, what with the random shutoffs and constant misfires. I definitely will not give up on it, and I may even buy another one if I can't find something else to fall in love with.

    Mine seems to be working a lot better than it was when I made the above post :) I used my MVP 2 for a couple days, and then when I needed to charge it I tried my SVD again, and it's been working pretty well since then (a few days). I can get it to fire almost every time with little effort, but naturally there is still the random shutoff/non-fire.

    I just hope it continues to work like it is until I can afford a Provari 2.5, as I'm done buying devices that are prone to failure.

    Same. I'm back to using my second SVD (my third failed), and it's working most of the time.

    Even so, I can't trust it for long-term use, which is why I bought my ProVari Mini. I'm already eying that green ProVari 2.5, for a little variety. ;)

    I have an SVD on the way from FT. After reading all the issues, I'm sure hoping it wasn't wasted money. I went ahead and bought a Vamo from a US supplier and got it right away to use as a back up (or the other way around) Guess I'll withold judgement till after it get here.

    Let us know how it goes.





    $37 isn't that bad for a waste of money. Just don't invest in the 18490/18500 batteries incase you want to upgrade to the 2.0.

    I took delivery on my SVD yesterday and paired it up with my Aerotank Mega. I will say that the rig is awesome looking. A real adjustment in size for me since I was coming from Spinners and Aerotank Mini! This is a formidIble piece to hold now. No stealthvgaping with this Light Saber!

    I've read the million pages in this thread about the firing button issues and hold hope that mine will be the exception. And that's because I think Innokin has a winner if it can be reliable. I mean, how hard is it to include a reliable firing button!! My cheapest eGo batts have buttons that work!

    I bought a Vamo V5 to use as back up. Nice rig too, but I do like the SVD. Wsh me luck!!!
