UPDATE: Presale starts November 13th online. I was right with my price estimation too… $249.95 to $269.95.
Here’s the email I received today (Nov 12th, 2014):
Dear ProVaper, As a way to say Thank You for being a loyal customer, we are extending a special customer appreciation Pre-sale to current ProVape customers starting tomorrow. Get a jump on everyone else and order your P3 early. This Pre-sale starts at 10am PST, Nov 13th. Since this is a Pre-sale for existing customers, you will need to click on the links below to access the products since they’re hidden on our website until Nov 17th. Order your ProVari P3 via the links below.
Clicking on the links in the email, The Satin Silver ProVari 3 (P3) shows a price of $249.95, the Polished ProVari 3 (P3) shows a price of $269.95, and the Black ProVari 3 (P3) shows $269.95 as well. I was very excited for ProVape’s release of the ProVari 3, but that interest waned and waned to the point where I don’t even care anymore. Even when PBusardo brought us the 1st look at the P3, I was excited, but once I got my hands on one to check out… I lost interest completely. BUT THERE ARE 1000’s that are still quite interested in the release and for those, I will tell you that the wait is almost over….

Here’s the email I got from ProVape just now…
The time has finally arrived. After more than a year in development, the ProVari P3 is finally unleashed; creating buzz and excitement across 60 countries, thousands of vape shops and in every vaping forum online. What a response! It’s been amazing! Starting November 17th at 12 Noon PST, the ProVari P3 and P3 Starter Kits go on sale for all of our customers online. Now you can join the revolution by purchasing the most technologically advanced personal vaporizer on the market directly from ProVape.com; and we’ll have it conveniently shipped to your doorstep. Join us as we get ready to unleash the beast globally…the Clock Starts NOW!
I haven’t seen any pricing information, but I am guessing that it’s going to set you back about $250. I have no doubt of the quality of the P3 or any other ProVari for that matter, but 20 watts at this point isn’t enough to make me drop $250 on the BMW of the vape gear world.
