browsing the site of the only real ecig supplier over here in the philippines and they just posted this,,,82 USD
seems like somebody is selling a cheaper version of the provari ?

anybody seen anything like this listed elsewhere ??

it is not un common for phils to buy american products and re-name as their own creation either 'so this just might be the case ??

No "ohms" setting maybe more like a lava tube "pretending" to be a provari?

It's from Smoktech and will be coming out this month in North America. Not a knock off, but a real new VV tube mod.

I cannot get your link to work but i am assuming you are talking about the Smok VV Bolt, It is too bad they didnt stick with the original finish they had on that thing, at least it looked somewhat different from the provari, I have read that it would have a 3Amp limit, but i have since read that that may be changed to a 5Amp limit so who knows, if the price is right and the build quality is right i will pick one of these up for sure.

I have a feeling that the build quality will be a little lacking compared to the Provari, but for under $90 it looks like it will be a very viable little PV. I have a couple Provaris that I love, but I also have a lavatube. There isn't really a comparison between the two, but for what it is, the lavatube does an admirable job for the money.

They are confirmed to have a 5 amp limit, so these things should rock a DCT pretty nicely, good news too since my Lavatube just died :( And it is called the VMax now!

From the look of it it seems to cheaper on the outside maybe different housing but same mechanics on the inside. If someone gets it they should post a review on it

You know we will!!! BTW, it looks very much like a Provari, too much so in my opinion. However, everything I've heard about it says that is a buck regulated device (2 batteries and a step down regulator) vs a boost regulated device like the Provari (single battery boosted to desired voltage). I also read somewhere that it will have a 5 amp limit.
