Lavatube / Lavatube 2.0 Fakes
There's a verified and confirmed fraudulent and unsafe knockoff hitting the market everywhere...and actually started back in mid April under the name Lavatube V1.5
This devise is NOT a Lavatube!!
The one that hit the market back in April has serious regulator problems and was causing fires and battery failures.
But the one pictured is being touted as the Lavatube V3.0
Neither is true, they're both frauds! (V1.5 & V3.0)
They're being sold by Uniq Technologies & Young June Tech and are being manufactured by an unknown/undisclosed factory in China.
The regulators in these units are not capable of handling 3.2 amps, nor the stated 4 amp max limit....
The previous release a month ago has the very same 2.5 amp regulator found in all L-Rider made LT's, but had been tuned/altered to a slightly higher amperage making the regulator unsafe and potentially dangerous and added two additional features...atty ohms checker and battery life.
There are quite a few threads popping up on the ECF with 24 hour use fanboy's promoting this device, but many other 'suckers' that are now returning them after discovering that they only hit 2.8/9 amps and have had prior recalls on the earlier version in April.
AVOID THESE UNITS LIKE THE PLAGUE!!

Edit: Please note that only the genuine product sold by Volcano is a LAVATUBE
Other devices may be made in other factories and may be unreliable copies. There is some evidence that the circuit boards have been set to operate beyond their capacity, leading to failures and returns
