Vamo 10, not sub ohm
So why is this not able to use 0.5 ohm and lower coils, its Variable wattage - can be adjustable from 3.0W to 55.0W (in 0.5W) and Variable volatge- can be adjusted from 3-7.4V (in .1 increments)

Yet its listing Compatible with 510 and eGo threaded atomizers with resistance 1.0-5.0ohm

Is this a PWM device or something, with limited 3A so fake output


Would you use above 20W on a 1.0 ohm coil ? what is the power for on this device. Its a great looking device and I love these tube mods

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
The only instance I can think of where you might possibly want 55W on a 1 ohm coil is if you built it yourself, some kind of huge coil with thick wire, like maybe a 26ga dual coil at 1.0 or something... But even then, that would be a terrible idea, the coils would be too big to heat up very quickly and you'd more than likely burn it as the juice couldn't wick through the 16 wraps fast enough and the middle section of wick would burn. Any normal build at 1.0 ohms would pop the coil at 55W, since to get 1.0 ohms you'd want to use 30ga or smaller. The most I can imagine is maybe 30-35W on a 1.0 ohm dual 28ga coil. Im just guessing though really, it's been a long time since I vaped at 1.0 ohms on an RDA. Don't even think about it with a MTL tank, you're looking at more like 10-15W with a 1.0 ohm coil in a tank like the Nautilus or Protank or similar. 

Maybe a SubTank? If I recall correctly, I think they have a 1.0 ohm coil which would be alright around 20-25W maybe. 

With higher resistance coils I definitely try to stick to what I call the "mech rule," by which I mean "if the voltage is higher than it would be on a mech, it's probably gonna burn." I try to keep it around 4.0V max for a high resistance coil, higher than that and you'll likely get nasty dry hits or just melt the coil. 

But again, all of this is off the top of my head speculation, somebody out there might know a way to vape at 1.0 ohms at 55W. I just can't imagine how.

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
I just found some RBA's for the Nautilus, thats going to be great with the Vamo 5, can finally ditch those cheap MT3 ebay coils :0 my son's had me re-building those for him too.

Well perhaps not 55W using a 1.0 ohm, but what the heck is it saying it has 55W for. Yer no problem with putting any tank on it, or any value coil, just don't get why its saying it has that but will switch off if you exceed 3A wont it ?

Im reading it works a single 18350 battery is no good as it needs the voltage, so single the unit will push 4.2V but 2 stacked will produce double this at 8.4V  A lower than 6.4V would cause the unit to display low voltage... Spec sheet it can do 0.8 ohm..

Was listed as 1x18650 or 2x18350, but now 2x18350. Oh well was for 2.1 ohm only anyway so the Vamo V5 I ordered will do, just thought this would do a lot more.

Ill try everything when it comes myself... sigh I bet a Protected battery would work with V5

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
The Kanger 1.2 ohm coils I certainly wouldn't recommend at 20+ watts, they're happiest at 10-12, 15 on the outside.

There is no conceivable reason to push 55W into .5 ohms.  40-45W is REALLY pushing it, and that'd be with a Clapton or something that has the thermal capacity to take 4.2-4.5 volts reasonably well.  On a single-strand coil, .5 ohms should be kept under 30W.  Best between 20-25.

To whit - With a 24/30 awg Clapton coil at .41 ohms (realize that .1 at these resistances is a 20% reduction in resistance), I run between 40 and 45 watts at 4.2 volts.  And that's a pretty high thermal capacity coil; I would reduce that power by about 10% for a single strand coil of the same resistance.  That same size Clapton at .5 ohms, I typically run between 34 and 39 watts - the same power I would run a .4 ohm single strand coil at.  And only that much on a single strand for relatively short (under 3-4 seconds) draws.

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
The V5 is a great mod for MTL. I just can't understand why the v10 would allow 55W at only 1.0 ohms... Help

Maybe for TC ramp up?  *shrug*

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
Quick ramp up has its issues. As in one titanium coil that vanished entirely and another that burned both legs off. I didn't realise the preheat was throwing 200W through 0.3mm titanium coils. It was a nice vape till the coils vanished.

TVF tested battery info to be found here

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
Oh I use 20W with the Kanger box with RBA, any higher and it bubbles and you get hot vape, no don't need it. As far as I know all the Vamo's are MTL and just a lot better than EGO things, I had thought I had found a cheap sub ohm tube mod.. sadly not the case.

Ha ha.. I switched tanks on the Kanger and forgot to turn down the power to 8W with its 2.4 home brew, darn I had made a nice coil too, burned out in a millisecond. So new habit of turning down  the power to 5W and work up :0

Maybe next year I go 200W got to sort out some decent thermal protection first, googles, welders mask etc

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
Do let us know how you get on with the V5 when you get it, I'm not sure if the one on FastTech is a clone or authentic so I'd love to hear what you think of it. I'm considering getting one for my Nautilus Mini, getting sick of using iSticks when all I want is a tube.

RE: Vamo 10, not sub ohm
Well its just one guy down an alley making EVERYTHING, he has a stamp with everybody's name on. Give him an order for a Smoky Vamo 66? that would be the right route ?

I'm looking forward to it arriving, Nautilus BVC and authentic Aspire coils, and an RBA ! and I bought a buffer for 510.. right now trying to make a case using my plastic welder :0

Oh Aspire K1 and Protank 2 going on it for a try too. k1 it great, I did a little mod and its using cheap MT3 coils. on EGO puff counter :0
