    Provari not working properly with the red batteries

    Hey Hack!

    Looking for some advice regarding the red batteries that came with the Provari.

    My original black 18650 that I got (Lost the other when I lost my first Provari) works like a champ, but for some reason over the holiday break, the red ones stopped working... If I give the extender cap a slight tap it works for a bit, but if i put it on a table and it taps gently it stops working. Prior to this happening, I noticed the red ones werent lasting as long as the black ones aswell..

    Any suggestions on this predicament?

    Also, is there any difference between the red and the black ones?

    There are a few differences....

    900mAh difference in capacity AW IMR 1600mAh (Red) vs Black Protected ProVari Power at 2500mAh

    Are you using a spacer ring with the red cell? (clear ring that you got with your black batts which slips on the end cap) If so it is not required. It sounds as if you may have the spacer ring attached which would cause the battery to not be held in place as firmly as it should be.

    Is this an issue with one batt or both batts?

    Also may be worth swapping the spring in your end cap for a new one (you will have received a spare with your black batts).

    is the display now offset towards the top in the hole ? after pulling mine apart I can see why jamming a big batt too hard could push the pcb up, bending the top posts or breaking the epoxy (in the later ones) if so, may need to tap out the top cap and check it out.
    I have noticed mine will do exactly what you say if I use an IMR with the extender ring on. Without extender its fine though.
    tapping it battery side down will always make it flash as the IMR loses contact with the top post when the spring compresses, one ecf guy was using it as a shortcut to exit the menus.

    and not at all with the provape ones, the cap will not fit on at all.
