could be that the resistance is too low for the Provari to manage, or the wick is shorting

Could try putting more coils on to increase the ohmage. Also the cig paper trick is useful. That's on the videos too. Also make sure your wick is oxidised enough. Put your provari on its lowest setting. Failing that start it off on a regular 3.7 volt mod and see where it is shorting. I also found .28 nichrome works well on the hellfire. Never had much luck with the kanthal with some mods/atties. I use .28 on my Orion now. Blows your head off.

Welcome to the ECR Kellyd, I agree that it could be the low resistance issue. You can check the resistance on the provari by quickly taping the button till A shows -I've built coils that were 0.8 ohms and would show error on the provari but still ran fine on the lava tube at 3v ;)
