Reviewer comments on business characteristics
A legend in the Vaposphère. At a time when the 3 version (P3) comes out in the trade, it is good to remember that this mod was for a long time the ultimate reference in the world of the vape. Dear, probably too much but terribly efficient and reliable. Ceiling around power 15W, it seems today a little outdated at least on paper because in practice, it is a different matter ...

Reviewer's comments on functional features
Here, the features are limited. This mod is above all ... a mod. No clock, phone or cooker or even the possibility of Tweeter with the switch ... By cons, the various protection systems are very effective and it seems impossible that the electronics lets pass any fault. There is of course a lack of airflow to feed an ato from below but solutions exist, many and various sources to overcome this problem.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
A Provari ... .. For a long time, this mod represented the Holy Grail of Vapogeeks of all kinds. Whether version 2 or 2.5 (just a cosmetic evolution), this mod has crystallized around him many desires, irrepressible desires but also half-silly looks and half-envious who blamed him for his insolence tariff.
In summary, this mod is well deserving of its legend. He is an imperishable classic, of an unshakable solidity that will accompany you faithfully from the moment or you will not ask him to do what he is not done. No sub-ohming with this little gentleman. No devastating power to create cyclones at the same time as vapor clouds. Just a mod that makes a vape soft and precise like a razor with unwavering consistency. Do not be deceived anyway, he has enough in the belly to make you cough if you push him into his trenches.
Nor should we neglect the quasi-historical aspect of this mod. There was a before and after Provari. It is at the origin of quarries and many mods were inspired by its features even if they seem a little outdated today. It is still a must for vapers. It is like some Rolls Royce or AC Cobra, a little outdated but so timeless ....
So, yes, it's still expensive, very expensive. But if there is only one electronic mod that can accompany you for many years without a fight, it's him.
