Status 3/21: March sale!

A Sale!

Spring has sprung so let’s have a sale. Coupon code¬†MARCH17 gets you 15% off your order (excl. closeouts). This sale will run through the end of March. At the moment we are stocked on all DNA boards but we are closing out the following boards: DNA 25, DNA 40 all types, DNA 200. These have been superseded by the later model versions and sales are tapering off. If you use any of these specific boards and foresee an ongoing need, please let us know.

Move update

We are fully moved into our new location, however we are still setting up our new production procedures so delays of up to a few days on shop jobs (mod builds, etc.) are ongoing. Message us if we’re late on any job you have with us, and we can give an update.

Production of the XPV 75 is fully live, the XPV 60 and XPV 250 should be going live soon. We apologize for the long delay on these units.

Join us on Facebook

We have finally established a Facebook page, we highly encourage following us there. Status updates and product posts tend to hit there first as it is easier to put a quick post there.

Advisory 1/31: Moving delay

Protovapor is in the middle of a location move necessitated by the sudden loss of our colocation partner. The process has been very unpredictable up to this point but we now know we will be losing several shop work days due to the move. All jobs requiring shop work (primarily mod builds and repairs) will be delayed several days while we complete the move. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Shipping of stocked items is not expected to be delayed and will continue normally.

Status 8/8: New mods, DNA 250 limited availability, DIY products

New mods announced

We are proud to announce three new mods to update our lineup to make use of Evolv’s latest boards. These mods represent the continuation of our design and functionality philosophy and will be on a short introductory pricing period until production can be ramped up. Quantities will be limited during this period.




Silo LE mods listed

2153As mentioned in the last update, we have posted all of our available Limited-Edition anodized Silo mods here. There are a couple of completed mods available as of this writing but due to the time constraints of meeting the FDA deadline, many mods have a lead time. Please be aware of any potential lead time when ordering. Due to FDA regulations we may not be able to do custom runs like this again.

Limited Edition Mods

Other DIY products

We are offering a few additional DIY products:

DNA-75D/200D/250D faceplates

Custom Silo case buttons

Evolv board (re)stocking … soon

We are currently short on DNA-200s, but we expect resupply shortly. Supply of DNA-60 and DNA-250s remains extremely limited. As they trickle in we may post some boards for sale, so stay tuned. DNA-75 boards remain in stock and ample supply.

Status 8/1: DNA60 preorder live, more LE silo mods, countdown to regulation

Evolv DNA 60 available for preorder

DNA60 RenderingEvolv is releasing the DNA 60 ahead of the FDA regulatory deadline so producers can get the very latest boards into products before time runs out.

We do plan to stock this and any other Evolv boards available during the FDA regulatory grace period.

More Silo LE mods coming

2143-2We have received a batch of stunning anodized Silo mods which we will be listing shortly here. There are a couple of completed mods available as of this writing but due to the time constraints of meeting the FDA deadline, additional mods will probably list with a lead time. Please be aware of any potential lead time when ordering.

Limited Edition Mods

Countdown to regulatory Armageddon

As you should be aware, the vapor industry is facing a major regulatory deadline in the Aug. 8 enactment of FDA rules that were released earlier this year. Protovapor intends to have several all-new device models and other products as of this deadline, so we can continue to serve the vaping community into the future. We expect to be extremely busy in the short term and as a result may incur additional delays on repairs and other services. Please bear with us as we need to complete certain regulatory steps to guarantee that we will continue to exist.
