Vamo Battery thread
This thread has been started so that all those that have a Vamo can list the batteries they know that fit this device. I have taken the list from Here which is way too long to wade thru if you just want to find out what batteries to order and what to expect in terms of battery life.

For me, I have these batteries and they all fit the V2 (which has the red insulator inside and the longer spring).

The batteries that I have and fit are:

Panasonic green 18650 flat top
Efest 18350 flat top
AW IMR 18350
AW IMR 18650 2000mah (slight rattle)

The run time with a decent 18350 is about 2 - 3 hours. Thats on the setting of 8 watts. Obviously, if you chose a higher watt setting, the batteries will not last as long. Less watts, more life.

All decent 18650's should last a full day no problem.

The symptoms of a bad battery is the Vamo cuts out and flashes the screen 3 times and then wont work. I have seen it say "lo" then cut out.

Lastly, to get the best out of the Vamo you need good batteries.

Please add below the batteries you know that fit and what sort of run time you get out of them. This will help those that want to use the Vamo.

Mods: VaporShark 30, SX350J, SXMini, YIHIV2
Attys: Kayfun 3.1, Russian 91%, Tafun GT's, Subtanks.
Drips: Too many to mention. Bored now...

Do these have any overcharge protection? I've just placed an order for a friend who is using my castoff TR-001.
