With the end cap you get an opportunity to use a 18490/18500 battery in your Mini Provari.
For the standard Provari, you can use a 18650 battery with this end cap.
This gun metal edition is not just standard plating. When Provape comes with something new, it is always the best.
The name ZenKote, relates to the special treatment the new edition of the Provari end cap has gotten. A treatment that makes it so much more beautiful and som much more durable than standard plating. (The traditional plating gives a much more vulnerable surface).
So do not confuse this with a simple plating. Here is what House of Hybrids, the inventors of ZenKote, says:
"ZenKote™ is a super-tough decorative and conductive nano-coating finish developed by House of Hybrids. Imagine having incredible beauty in a highly conductive finish but with a hardness greater than carbide! We start with a Stainless Steel substrate then run the part through a 7 step cleaning process to clean and sterilize it making it ready for the tough outer finish. Finally, The final finish step is to put our proprietary vapor deposition nanocoating on it to make it permanent and tougher than any PV finish available, it's tougher than Chrome!"
