    Default Vamo and tanks

    I just ordered a vamo and while I am waiting for it to be delivered I wanted to get some idea of what to use with it.
    I am a flavor junkie so in your opinion which tank gives the best flavor? Right now I use egos with ce3 clearos. The few tanks I have tried in the past have all seemed like the flavor was muted.
    Also I use 80 pg 20 vg ratio on my juices will this still work well with a tank?
    i have been vaping for about a year but I am still smoking 5 cigs a day. I am hoping with the right setup to be able to give them up completely!

    just out of interest, did you try fasttech for your vamo. can't believe how inflated the prices are in the uk compared to the states.

    That is where I ordered it from. It was $53 shipped with 2 batts and a charger. I ordered it yesterday and received a shipping notice today with tracking!

    Well the CE3 is a bottom coil clearo - so if you prefer that cooler vape, you could try either an EVOD or (everyone's favorite but mine) a pro-tank. They are also bottom coil and will provide a similar vape to your CE3s

    The EVOD will hold about 1.6ml of juice and the pro-tank about 3.5ml. The EVOD heads are cheap ($1.50) and will fit in the pro-tank. Also, the pro-tank is glass, so you can use any juice in there - the EVODs are not so beware of tank cracking citrus / cinnamon juices.

    I also use a (genuine) vivi nova metal, I have a mini (1.5ml) and a regular (3.5ml) sized tank. These are top coil and will give a warmer vape than you might be used to. All my suggestions look good on a Vamo. The replacement heads are around $2-3 but I have just started re-wrapping / wicking them myself - with mixed results

    Edit - I see you got your Vamo from Fasttech. They also have the pro-tank but it's sold out right now. They carry the EVODs too - several members on here have got theirs and vape with them with no issues. BUT - I wouldn't recommend buying the vivi novas from fasttech, they are knock-offs and a lot of people have had leaking issues with them.

    On my vamo I am finding I absolutely love carto tanks for flavor and vapor production. There are a WIDE range of tanks out there. Here in the states many ECF people love the IBTanked carto tanks and the Phiniacs. Advantage is they are glass and if you get the metal endcap option you have no worries about what juice you put in them (they wont crack with citrus or cinnamon flavors like some plastics). Downside is they are a bit more pricey.

    I recently picked up a bundle of 5 DCT carto tanks from fasttech dirt cheap and they are working wonderfully. You do NOT have to run dual coil cartos with them if you do not want to (though the vamo can handle a dual coil). Upside they are extremely lightweight and affordable. Downside you MIGHT have trouble with juice cracking as they are plastic and they are a smaller capacity.

    BOTH sorts give me the flavor and vapor I enjoy but as in all things vaping it really is a matter of individual taste.

    If you go with the Evod, you'll need a 510 to Ego adapter. I love the ProTank on my Vamo, and you wouldn't need an adapter.

    MAJOR EDIT: I was wrong about the adapter. The newer Vamos don't need them! My apologies for any confusion

    Hey Susan,

    I also have a Vamo and I have been exclusively using carto-tanks on it. It is the best combo for me, for performance and completely hassle free.
    I have a couple of mini-sub tanks from mom and pop vapor shop. It takes some training to set them up but they are solidly attached so they won't come off in your pocket/bag, and I never had the tiniest leak. The little holes and screws are convenient too to fill them up.

    As far as cartos I use boge LR. They are cheap and offer plenty good performance and flavor in my opinion.

    80/20 will certainly work in carto-tanks, you will just need less holes in the cartos as the liquid is thinner. One hole should be enough.

    It takes a little research to find the perfect setup for you but once you found it you will easily give up the real thing!

    You must have an older Vamo, most that I have seen on the forum have 510 and ego threading. I can use an EVOD or even an MT3 on mine.

    Edit - I just checked, the one on Fasttech has both 510 and ego threads.

    I do miss the warm vape I had with I think the ce2 clearos. I will check out the vivi novas.
    I think for my tanks I will be ordering stateside so hopefully I won't run into any problems.
    Thanks for your input.

    Another vote for the Protank with the Vamo, they look like they were made for each other, a match made in heaven
