    Provari have to be joking: The Procyon.



    $300+ for a 50w tube mod? Im a Provari fan but i think they really dont have any idea whats going on out there. They keep going on about safety features but newsflash: all decent mods have them. You can get a lot more power, better form factor, better battery life and the same safety features for a fraction of the price everywhere else. Imo their really just resting on their name to justify the overpricing on the Procyon.

    I thought that was provaris motto for all their mods

    yeah i dunno i see provari as the BMW of the vape world.
    Sure you can brag to your friends you have one, but end of the day a mazda is 1/4 the cost and does the same dam thing

    All jokes aside , a mod , or a car , or a home , is only worth what people will pay for it .... not all mods have to cost under $60 and be made in third world countries asking employees to work 16 hours a day 7 days a week for a few US$'s so we can buy a new mod at "super super cheap low low price" every three weeks, to be "worthwhile"

    Compared to a carton of smokes we used to buy willy nilly every fortnight or so, any mod at less than that $7000 a year the average smoker blew, then vaping is a win ...

    Do it cheap, do it expensive, its up to the doer IMHO ...

    ( No Secret I like provari... they make armagheddon mods with factory backup at all times ... sure you get cheaper, and yes China mods are improving, but I personally would back a Provari safety measure a LOT more than a Smok or FT mod )

    I present the case that I don't actually think I have EVER seen a photo of a provari that has exploded or failed catastrophically nor really read about one?
    Cant really say that for the bulk of the $60 china ones?
    Sure incidents are very very rare but a 99.5% safety record still isn't a 100%

    Could Provari sell these for much less... yes they could ( but they wont ) ... will people pay the existing price? ... certainly

    TLDR : as vapers one always has the ability to vote with yer wallet

    ( Oh and yes Price IS a factor in why I don't presently have a Procyon ... I bought another Mini 2.5 in the run out sale for US$30 )

    Bet that black scratches off like buggery and it looks like it's been through the washing machine with next to no effort.

    The Stealth has a ceramic coating, ive got a 2.5 Stealth and it wears a lot better than the standard black Provaris. Agree $350 is still a big hit for a mod though.

    I am a provari supporter but i dont think the price tag is justified on this one. They were pushing it a bit with the radius but this is selling as a subohm mod that only goes to 50w? Cmon!
