    Got this in the mail last week, Council of Vapor Mini-Volt kit with tank. And of course the flava monsta Royal Hunter Mini rda. Got it all for under $30.

    Looks like @Bebop is doing a great job of getting you through this.  Just as a couple of side notes:
    1.  Smok coils often are flaky.  We get a lot of problems here with them.
    2.  Sometimes a mod will not read a new coil.  One thing you can try is to fire the mod with no coil a few times and see if it indicates no atomizer.  This may help it read a new coil when you put it on.  35 Watts into a .4 Ohm coil causes the mod to put out about 3.74 Volts.  If the mod doesn't read the new coil and puts that 3.74 volts into a .15 ohm coil it will be developing about 93 Watts.

    Wow, don't know of anything today that has a 10 year warranty except custom builders.  I have two mods that would fit the bill.   The GeekVape Aegis Legond and the Teslacigs XT.  Both are pretty hardy.  The best subohm (not RBA) I have had to date is the Vaporesso Cascade Baby.  Amazing flavor if you use the mesh coils.  Does not leak.

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with the Provari, so I don't know what you are trying to replace.  It is a holiday weekend though and there may be a lot of sales.

    I just want to add for edumacational purposes, youh understand...
    Volts vs Watts
     
    you're looking at two sides of the same equation.
    Watts = Amps x Volts
    So when you change "watts" on your device, you are really adjusting the voltage.  As your "watts" reduce your voltage drops with it.   If I were to draw a piss poor analogy,  think of it like the equation 2 + 2 = 4.     If I change the 4 to 3,   I automatically have to reduce the 2 to 1. (1 +  2 = 3) the 2 sides of the equation are "tied" together.
    so when you change your wattage and see your voltage changing that is what you are seeing; the two sides of the equation "balancing".
    What we are concerned with is exceeding the amp rating of our battery.   Amps are calculated by watts ÷ volts.   ex:  60watts ÷ 3.7 volts = 16.2 amps.    Your battery has to be rated for more than that amount or it goes *boom*
    This is why your battery "shuts down" at 3.2 volts minimum because you can see that if your volts dropped to 2 volts,  at 60 watts you would be drawing 30 amps!   yeah,  *boom*
    A regulated mod is designed to keep the voltage constant as the battery discharges.  That keeps you safe and happy. 
    This is just a simple, practical explanation and is in no way intended to inform, insult, offend, challenge or disrespect any real electrical engineer.  No real engineers were harmed in this explanation.

    There is a lot going on inside of regulated mods.  Battery Mooch explains it pretty well.  This is not to put you off from asking questions here but the videos will give you a jump start on understanding the whole thing.

    Welcome to Vapor Talk!   
    You've gotten a lot of very good advice from @Walt. I'll add a few things too, even though I'm not familiar with your mod.
    First, we call it 'juice' or 'eliquid', there isn't (or shouldn't be) any oil in the liquid you use to vape. If there is, I would dispose of it and get liquid that has VG (vegetable glycerin), PG (propylene glycol), food grade flavoring, and nicotine (as Walt said, either regular nic or salt nic). Sometimes there's also food coloring but I tend to not go that route, I don't want anything more in my liquid than minimally possible.
    That said, since you're just starting out, I wouldn't buy any quantities of one flavor of e-liquid right now. The reason behind that train of thought is that you are just now quitting smoking. Your body is going through a lot of changes detoxifying from all the carcinogens that cigarettes contain. Your taste buds are changing too. What tastes good to you today in e-liquid form may not be as good to you tomorrow. When I first started, I went through flavors until I had well over 40 (that's probably on the low side as I went a little overboard experimenting) and switched around as my mood took me.
    If you're switching flavors, you'll want to have a different tank and coil to keep it in. Using the same coil for different flavors may wind up giving you a happy accident of a good flavor or it could be a disgusting mistake. There is a wick inside the coil that soaks up e-liquid. This wick will retain traces of the old flavor so you really want to have a different tank - it's easier this way to just change out tanks.
    Repeating Walt again, start with a low wattage level, you don't have to use what's advised, just start at something low and vape. If that's not doing it for you by giving you the flavor and vapor you want, turn it up just a few notches and vape. Repeat until you get a slight burnt taste. Back it down a bit. That's how you find your "sweet spot." As your coil ages, you may need the turn it up a bit. When you use your coil to heat up the e-liquid, the e-liquid will leave some gunk behind. The more build up you get, the more resistance it creates. The more resistance your coil has, the more power you'll need to heat the e-liquid to get the desired results. The darker, sweeter e-liquids will gunk up your coils faster.
    Vaping will dehydrate you so start drinking more water. Don't increase your liquid intake by drinking soda, coffee, tea, juice... whatever. Just plain water. You'll thank me later. 
    Sorry for the long post, but I hope some of this will help. Good luck, and ask lots of questions. We've all been there, done that, and want to help new vapers get off cigarettes.

    Sadly, the fear mongers will fail to read any of these conclusive studies and continue to spread misinformation. Still, it's nice to see that more studies are being performed and the same results are coming out. Maybe some day the mainstream news will pick up on it. One can dream...
