    Zmax v3 already broken

    I bought a Zmax v3 Telescope less than two weeks ago, and the button is already playing up. It doesn't always fire, and sometimes just a single click takes me into the menu. It's a shame because I really love the simplistic look of this mod, and its not too big. All other mods in a similar price range look too big and also look pretty cheap.


    So I've been looking at the provari - it costs an arm and a leg, but I'm guessing that it will last longer. I also like its simple form and smaller size.

    Would it be wise to jump into the provari? I found it for around $200 bucks at vapebar. Also, would the Boge F16 tank go well with it? I don't want the tank to look goofy on it. I want a tank that's going to fit kinda flush and not stick out in width.


    I saw the Zmax v5 for $100 bucks, but I don't want to end up with the same issues and more than $160 bucks down the drain.


    What do you guys reckon?

    A Boge f16 on a Provari looks fine. The tank is a smidge thinner than the Provari, but still aesthetically pleasing. This is my current set up.

    You will not regret the initial outlay on the Provari. More than worth it in terms of durability and dependability.

    Is it thinner than the tip or the handle base, because I noticed it's not a flat top. It would be nice if it matched the width of the top cap.


    Postage is a what now... lol I saw on vapebar that postage will be free if it's a purchase of over $200. Is this a good site to buy it from?

    The F16 Tank is larger in diameter than the very end of the Provari top cap, but smaller than the base. And I personally find Vapebar a great vendor to deal with. That's where I got my Provari. I also purchased the Provari extension cap so I could run an 18650 for a bit more battery life.

    I've found that the top end of the provari is 19mm, and the F16 is 20mm. Not sure if this is 100% correct, though.

    Would these rings help the boge tank sit flush and not over hang?

    I'm not sure but I think those rings might make it look worse.

    Here's a pic I just took of my F16 tank on the Provari so you can get an idea.

    If you want the most perfect matching with the best mod in the world (The one and only provari) i would suggest you take a look at the GR-modders website and take a look at either the Varedaro tank, which is a special tank for the provari and also the prive tank, All made by Kir-Fanis. Both of these tanks are made for the provari and sit flush with the 19mm top cap base, The tanks also have slot cut outs on the bottom which will alow airflow due to tanks seating perfectly on the provari.

    They are a little bit pricy but well worth it if you love the provari, just like i do. They even have matching drip tips which have the teardrop cut-outs which match the tank and the provari even better!
