    I really like it a lot!

    I have an opinion on that topic but am not allowed to express it as per the forum rules.

    I'm pretty sure I was told steel. I'll check on it and get back to you.

    My retail customers enjoy a 90 day warranty which is the same warranty provided to me by smoktech. I can't speak on the policies of other vendors. ALWAYS read the fine print before purchasing.

    I cannot answer that question. I'll check into it and get back to you.
    I'd hate to advocate nicotine use, violence and insanity. But they've always worked for me.

    I've been doing pretty good. Super busy with work, not much time for doing music. But really good. Haven't seen you in a while either. What have you been up to?

    It's hard to catch up with older posters here, too big of a forum. Good to see you! Still travel International mostly in Europe last few years. Try to help with posts in the travel sub forum . Stay in touch brother!

    The word from Smoktech is that the Vmax is indeed made from steel. I'll get back to you on the 5amp thing.

    Question Some troubling issues after several weeks of use

    Ok, so, first off, this is the best hitting pv ive ever used, but there are some problems, or maybe i have a defective unit.

    1. Contenually generates heat in the body of the unit, it is always warm, rather disturbing, and i usually have to change batts 2x a day, so 3 sets total.

    2. Every morning when i wake up, the batteries are dead if i leave the endcap on

    3. defaults to 5v, switches to defaults from the lightest bump on the bottom of the unit, this has killed coils

    4. Display goes wonkey most the time, missing segments, just wrong display, etc


    Anybody else have these issues or do i just have a dud? are they corrected in the silver ones? any info would be great guys...

    It sounds like you got one from the first defective run. I am hearing that on those any setting below 4.2 immediately spike back up. If I were you I'd contact the vendor you got it from. The build where they fixed it defaults to 3. I haven't had a single one of those issues and both myself and my fiance are using them heavily every day and have been for 2 weeks. I am using VMax branded 18350's and getting between 2-3 days of heavy use. I don't take the batteries out til they need charging.

    I'm still waiting on an answer for this. I haven't forgotten.
