    Default The VAMO battery thread

    The VAMO can accept either 18350 and 18650 batteries, however, apparently not all actually work with this unit.

    If you own a VAMO, what batteries are you using and where did you get them?

    I'm also interested in knowing if they are they button tops.

    Hopefully, this thread will also prove useful for future VAMO owners.

    I have one. So far I have used-
    IMR 18650, LiMn 2000mAh Battery
    IMR 18350, LiMn 800mAh Battery, Flat Top
    and
    IMR 18350, LiMn 800mAh Battery
    in mine with no issues.

    My Vamo is the V2 with the longer spring and the red insulator around the positive contact and came from Health Cabin this week.

    I read that some users have trouble with trustfires. I woudn't use them.
    I use AW IMR 18650 and AW IMR 18350. All button tops. Bought from local vendor. They work fine with the Vamo.

    Health Cabin say this on their site:
    We have tested with flat top 18650s and 18350s. Also works with single button top 18650 and 18350s (AW IMR).

    We believe that the (2) 18350 configuration would require flat tops.
    I haven't tried 2x 18350.

    i used the orange flattop IMR 18650 it was maybe a year old, when I put it in it wouldn't work and after that the battery wouldn't charge anymore and I had to throw it out so be careful using those.

    I am using the 18650 aw 2000 button tops that come from provape, and also the18650 panasonic 2250 button tops I got from orbtronics, they both fit easily and work well, and looks like there might be room enough left over to try a panny 3000.

    Mine's the same, and I've used AW IMR button top and Panasonic flat top with no problem.

    Found out last night that if you use a couple of spacers you can also use a 18500 in it. Got several of them. Just need to add two spacers from my Xtar charger and works great.

    Do you hear a rattle with any of the 18350's? Flat or button top? I get a small rattle with 18650

    I haven't received my VAMO yet, but when I do, if I feel any rattling with a 18650 battery I think I'll try a "vape safe fuse" to stop the rattling, just a thought.

    I was using the 18350's in short mode, not stacked. I'm not a stacker.

    I tried it with the flat tops and buttons I linked to, since I had both on hand.

    Only rattle I have so far is the metal buttons.
