There have been many attempts to replicate the Provari in one way or another. The most successful try was the VMAX which was the precursor to the ZMAX. It was popular until everyone realized the Vmax was putting out WAY more voltage than it indicated. This was due to the stacked battery configuration and the pulse width modulation.
Provari's are loved due to their reliability, build quality, and warranty - is this something China is going to be able to replicate? We will wait and see.
1. The replica seems to be in a brushed stainless steel. You can see the brushed texture. I am unaware of any provari ever being made in such a finish. As a comparison we have the legit provari's on the left and right in satin and polished stainless.
2. The top groove ring (below the display) appears to be fatter and cut deeper than the originals.
3. The display board seems to be off center - you can clearly see a large black patch on the bottom.
