    Default SVD or Vamo

    I purchased an MVP V2 already and am looking to upgrade. Was wondering what you all would suggest I go onto next. An SVD or a Vamo. Or anything other that is relatively the same, but I have my eye on those two right now anyways.

    100% SVD. Waaaay more versatile than the Vamo, does everything the Vamo can do and then some (Vamo only takes 18650s or 18350s, the SVD will take any 18xxx battery that's out there), and one MAJOR factor: the buttons LOCK on the SVD. The Vamo's buttons do not lock (turning the device off does not constitute "locking buttons"). One day my Vamo rolled around in my backpack and like a fool I hit it before checking and burnt my carto dead. It had accidently bumped itself to 15 watts and I hit it on a 2 ohm carto. Fried it instantly.

    SVD all the way. You can't go wrong. Also, the SVD is made by the same company that makes your MVP 2 (Innokin). If you like the quality of your MVP 2, you'll like the craftmanship of the SVD.

    SVD all the way. I've owned both. Go with the SVD.

    of the two mods you mentioned and the one you have they all vape at the same level of performance. As mentioned above you have some battery size option but not really an up grade more of a lateral IMO. If you want better performance and higher quality electronics. You have to up the cash also.

    Id Personally chose a SVD over a Vamo

    CONS...

    SVD: atty connection is weak. Atty pin is easily pushed into the mod. The grommet surrounding it is small and loose. Do not over tighten your atty.

    Vamo: 510 threads strip easily. AFAIK, no one makes an eGo to 510 adapter, which would somewhat alleviate that problem, except your atty would look all stupid floating above the mod.

    V2. As far as I know, they're up to V5 and the buttons still don't lock. Am I wrong?

    I would say Vamo, not v2 though. If u pick the vamo try getting a v3 or a v5 (both available on fasttech)
