Looking for a replacement for a V1 Lava Tube
It won't take any of my protected cells and I'm really not happy with blue and grey Trustfires that close to my face. I only have about 4 cells that will actually fit in the thing. I was  thinking a Vamo V3 or 5 - probably in stainless steel. I don't think I'm interested in mech ones at the moment but are there other (costing no more than a Vamo) VW devices worth looking at?

I love my vamo's, cant see you going wrong there. The other slightly more expensive option is putting together a dna20 box mod, something I plan on playing with next year.

RE: Looking for a replacement for a V1 Lava Tube
For the price I don't think you can beat the Vamo - V3 or V5 doesn't really matter but I would highly recommend the SS version over the plated ones

There's the SVD but it's a bit more expensive. There could be others but I have to admit that I don't tend to keep up with the VV/VW mods as much as the Mech's

*Edit - There's the DNA20 which Graham mentioned which is pretty darn awesome but it's probably worth bearing in mind that the lowest setting is 7 watts - which may not be for you*

And any DNA20 is going to be pretty big as it's going to need 8+V.

Looks like an SS Vamo - or a cheap plated V3//5 as I really don['t care what it looks like.

Look at any of my torch mods to see how bad I am at that sort of stuff.

I can run almost any battery in my Vamo V3
I run an Xtar 3400 mah protected Panasonic and it fits just fine. I can get about 22-24 hrs of solid vape time from it.

Mechs are my next toys once the store starts to see some traffic.

I'm sure the dna20 is 4.2v 7a input, upto 8.3v 6a output.

I'm going to be getting my steel rule out this weekend and doing some working out but I've seen them fitted in tube mods so their not as big as I think.

RE: Looking for a replacement for a V1 Lava Tube
My Google-fu must be weak. I could only find a picture of a 2x18650 cylindrical device. Which looked like it could be useful for subduing miscreants so I thought it needed 8.4V

I live and learn. A drastically cheaper clone of that would be nice.

Indeed, a vamo ia cheaper than the board and tbh, my two are serving me wel, infact thats a point how about a discouted lightly used vamo? Its black chrome rather than stainless but I could post it out today or monday and you'd have it early next week?
