    Provari with STV Nova

    Just got this tank today & Love the look of this on my Provari Mini. It's all Pink!! Anyway, I've seen you can re-build these things. I have some Kanthal A1 32ga and some silica wick. Is it ok to rebuild this with the 32g Kanthal when the time comes?

    Rebuilding it with Kanthal is fine, just get the resistance right .

    So when you say get the resistance right..is there a certain resistance you need to rebuild these to? They come already built in different resistances so I know there is a bit of play in them.

    Cool, I was wondering how long they can last. I have enough to last for a while before I have to either order more or re-build. My husband is funny. He's using his new Evic he just got and one of these and he's only ever used Cartos. He's tripping on the taste of his RY4 mixed with Vanilla saying it tastes burnt to him. I'm trying to explain that it's not burnt..it's just his RY4 popping out at him. I'm tasting it and there is no burnt flavor at all. He has a lava tube but never really used it so this is the first vv experience he's had with his juice on a non-carto vape.

    He's disappointed though. He also ordered a GS core V2 and the threads are off or something. Won't screw onto the Evic, but will screw on to everything else. Other things seem to fit fine on the Evic.

    32 gauge Kanthal and 6/0, 1mm square braided cotton wick with 4 wraps - 1.8 ohms

    32 gauge Kanthal and 6/0, 1mm square braided cotton wick with 5 wraps - 2.0 ohms
