    2. 15 watts maximum power output
    3. Wheel adjustable voltage dial
    4. Improved battery life Technology

    6 ml juice capacity

    Standard REO juice feed system.

    Batterys (2) each

    1. AW 18350 700aMh
    2. Lifepo3 500aMh

    Wayne looks like another solid device from Rob. Can't wait for the VV Reo Grand, should be a killer mod.

    Yep this is a win all around.

    I talked to Rob a few days ago the prints for the VV Grand are done and on there way to the shop to get the body's milled out.
    He plans on building around 100 or so VV Woodvils while the Grands are being worked on and he should have 200-300 Grands if all works out right. :)

    IMO this is the best VV Juice mode I have used to date.

    I have been running it hard for the past 3 days with no issues. :)

    He is going to do a big batch of VV Grands, should be out in a month or so. I will keep you posted

    I dont know the cost yet but will post it as soon as he gets the price for he VV Grands.

    I have been using all the battery's I can but got the best out of the AW 18350's I will post more about battery life and how much juice I get through when I complete my testing of the battery's.

    He is hoping that Evolve gets there act to gether on the moders chip this year so he can make a one battery VV so we can use our 18650's and 18490's but he would like the same chip as in the Darwin (12W) not 10W. I will keep you posted if I hear something.

    I'll be happy to beta test one for them and share my opinion with the world.

    Nice review Wayne. Looks like a great device- wish it went up to 6V - maybe with the evolv chip? .. .but its good to have a new entry on the high end to consider.

    Really do hope that Rob gets that chip from Evolv or maybe the kick. Then there will be the first ever VW REO. This is turning out to be one hell of a year.

    Hey guys, heard about the V2 Provari? It goes low, like LR. 3.5 amp limiter, starts at 2.9v.
    That should help for Genesis attys with LR coils for one thing.
    I read you can send your Provari in for an upgrade; only $20 bucks does it.
    I sold my 2 first run Vari's and got a new one in August '11.

    BTW the VVPV is out; had some issues with the spring for the battery coming in wrong from the producers and now it's fixed.
    Mike at notcigs is working on a d/t adapter; much needed. The existing d/t with tube is "not happening"... juice gets stuck; it's just a plastic whistle tip, I believe from a 901 atty as it has a long base to slide on to the atty.
    MWA has a Pyrex donut Trippy Tip with a tube hole for it. TT is still setting up for making these available for the VVPV. I think it's Matt's idea.
    I'm just waiting to see what happens with these before I can say my VVPV is up and running like it should.

    Hmmm time to break out the wallet for something other than flavoring ;-). 2 original provari's going back for an update and seriously looking at a black satin unit... the gold plated bling just isn't my style though :)

    Just traded my original Provari and then this, damn it. Just got tired of the E1 and 2 errors. I like my vape a bit hotter than most people and the provari wouldn't allow me to vape that way. May buy a V2 now but I'll wait for some reviews.

    Black Satin w/ Blue LED (in March) is "trick". Are you getting the V2 upgrade?

    I just looked at the Provari FAQ page (when you click on email there is an extended FAQ); and the upgrade question says they just make changes to the board "update the board". Hmm I wonder if they just change the settings to the existing board ?
    As far as I know that's allowing for lower voltage (to 2.9) and a higher amp limiter (3.5); is that all they have to do?
    I don't mean "is that all" like i could do it or anything...but do you think it's basically the same Provari with adjusted specs?
    BLue LED is $15 more and no pre-orders; just first come when they show up mid March.

    yea same here 2 ody kits, ody hit's well on just about anything... this was my make shift using the supplied stock cart dt when I first got the VVPV, 306d carto sleeve, 2 o-rings, and center with tape to prevent it from bending. Still searching for better DT without to much efforts, and looking at varietals that folks are making, and some of them remind me of Shadow's adapter but in the dt itself.

    Besides the amp limit of the chip. Then that's all that has been changed from what I noticed. Which does deal with many of the complaints that people had. Which was that they couldn't use a DCC on a Provari without the E1 message showing up.

    With a 1.7 ohm resurrector, I got up to 5.6V. As for the DCC, I got up to the max voltage of 6V without any error messages. The one thing that I did notice is that the menu has gotten re-arranged.

    hey wash, i just "picked up" a Reo mini; all black stealth, from the classies today. I sent my XL Vmod in under warranty for a crack in the plastic inner housing, and was missing a bottom feeder.
    The weather is hard on wood here as two Phids warped, one of them twice. I used to have the Reo metal set, but I sold all my bf's almost a year ago. Lately I think i've got the hang of a mechanical 3.7 pv, and liking bottom feeding again (LR and IMR AW all the way).

    ** got an email from Uwe today; mailing my 2 Gen LV's on monday. (assembled)** wow.
    From what i've seen, they look pretty crude (inside - coil area) compared to the Line, but the proof will be in the vaping.

    Hey Ukeman,

    Congrats on getting the mini!!! Got the same combo for one of my mini's too. Definitely won't have to worry about the body breaking with a REO. I think it's great that your getting back into bottom feeders. They really are great when your out and about. Definitely agree that LR and IMR batts are hard to beat. Sorry to hear about your Phids. Does sound like the weather over there is a bit much for them. Which is the bad thing about wooden mods.

    Great to hear that you got your notice on the Gen LV's. Can't wait to hear about what you think of them and how they vape. Haven't really seen any pics of it yet. Still debating if I'm going to get one of those. Probably will since I wanted a rebuildable tank for a while now.

    Anyways, don't forget to visit the REO sub-forum sometimes. A lot of good people there and plenty of news about the VV REO's coming out like the VV Grand. You should see the changes in design. It's something else.

    Good luck with Uwe mailing out your GLV's. He's told me several different dates and mine have yet to ship.

    Check out the new provari mini. Just what I needed!

    Maybe we should change the name of this thread to "While Waiting for my Kronos and LV"
