    Default Best tank for a vamo v5?

    hey all

    recently purchased a vamo v5 and am not liking the gap i get when i use my kanger protank 2 on it.

    anyone know of any good tanks to use for the vamo v5
    or a specific quick fix for the protank?

    thanks,

    erik

    The top connector design is a little wonky on the Vamo, so all tanks will have a gap when attached. I guess you could file it down with a dremel tool if so inclined.

    I think a 22mm IBTanked looks great on a Vamo.

    thanks!
    ive seen people put an O ring to minimize the gap.

    my big concern is that if i drop it ill either push the pin down or strip the threads.

    have you heard of anyone using a 510 adpater and a vivi beauty ring to fix this problem?

    If your ProTank came with a beauty ring...
    Vamo V3 with Protank II - is there a gap?
    Or you could buy a Vivi Nova beauty ring.

    Where are you located?

    Yep, as mentioned above, if you have the PT beauty ring use it on the ego threads, it will help fill minimize the gap and provide much more support for the tank. On a V3 but same difference:

    The standard conical protank ring will work the best, first one in search that comes up is ~$5 for a pair of um, not sure on shipping. Ive dealt with exhalevapors before their service is acceptable. You can also use them to make the protanks look much better on an ego style battery if you happen to use those.
