vamo v3 ,5 ,sid or svd for starter mod
I'm looking at the vamo v3 and 5, sid and svd I would really like to know what is the best to start out with as a mod and the best set up to go with battery and charger wise
I own a SiD and I love it. I made the choice to get a SiD after reading the forums and watching the PBusardo review/comparison between it and a Z-Max. I chose it because of the clarity of the menu and the fact that it didn't perform any different from any of its competitors, such as the Z-Max and the Vamo. I think they are pretty much all the same, but you have to decide which is aesthetically better for you and which have the appropriate ranges for you as far as wattage and voltage. An added point for the SiD is the ability to switch out just the control head for cheap, if your mechanics stop working. Good luck making your choice! Watch a lot of YouTube videos. It helps.
Living, loving, and laughing all the time!
I would suggest the SVD. I've owned all but the Vamo V5, and the build quality on the SVD is superior. It's also the only one I haven't had problems with.
For batteries and charger - get a Nitecore Intellicharger, either the i2 or i4. The main difference between the two is that the i2 has 2 charging banks, the i4 has 4. The i4 is usually available for around $20. Batteries, you can't go wrong with AW IMRs, eFest, Panisonic, or Samsung. Some folks also use Sonys. An SVD will take anywhere from an 18350 to an 18650. Those batteries will run you anywhere from $4 each to $15 each, depending on the size you choose and the brand you choose. I personally only run AW IMRs now, and they're fairly pricey as far as batteries go.
Best advice here^^^. DO NOT go cheap on the batteries and charger! Buy quality batteries from a reputable vendor only and pay the few extra dollars. There are some vendors/dealers on ebay that are selling rebranded knock-off's that are not the battery you think your getting. They can fail... and when they do, people get hurt and property gets damaged! Shop Wisely!

I bought the SID about a week ago. So far, so good. I use Panasonic 18360 batteries, and have a Nitecore Intellicharger. Seems to be a decent setup for me at this time. Still so much to learn about.

Reason: typos. time for more coffee.
I bought the SVD kit from FastTech with 4 UltraFire 18650 batteries and a i4 charger and I love it! The SVD is by far better than other mods I have tried. The only think I would upgrade to a Chi Yu from an SVD. Get one!
Well said Brotha!

thanks for all the input everyone I guess the sid really is the vamo killer. Now I have to see it I can deal with the menu of the SVD or will the SID's menu win. And where should I order the SID or the SVD I was thinking fastech they seem to have the best pricing.
They also have slow shipping times, you need to weigh that in your decision, I placed an order with FastTech on 10-18 and I am not expecting it to my door till 11-18. Sometimes if you want it something faster you have to pay a little bit more, normally you can find things about $10 more than FastTech price unless it is a replica (clone).
