    Any ideas where to buy VAMO circuit boards?

    Sent with my arthritic thumbs with proofreading help from the hound!

    Not sure how much sense it makes to buy the board for a Vamo V2 for $22 plus shipping while you get the whole control part including board and top cap for $23 with free shipping.
    Add another $3 and you can even get any other version of the Vamo board.

    Thanks for that GREAT link! Just ordered the brushed steel V2 connection part. Question, was the 510 conection stainless steel or brass?

    That's the same one I purchased, and I believe it's all stainless steel.

    hey all i was having issue with my V3 and V4 popping my tanks off. since i use protanks i just screwed on the ego beauty ring on my V3 and that helps solve the problem, also i used the battery extension tube from my V4 as a tank guard aka tough mode. ego beauty ring also acts as an air flow control since it does not side against the vamo and tank at the same time so you can screw it up or down a little to change how it vapes. also tough mode does not effect airflow that i have see or felt.

    That's awesome. Thanks!

    I'm using a spare extension tube with the V5 beauty ring for fancy tough mode with an Evod.
    It also works with the Vision Victory 5ml tank but no V5 beauty ring for Protanks.
    Tough mode won't work at all on Vivi Novas or iClear30s.



    That's Vape Mania BTW. It's a propaganda parody and it's a hoot.

    Provide more detailed pictures of the V3 head and the connector, would it be possible to say get a machinist that knows how to cut threads make another 510/eGo connector and replace a stripped/bad one? My brother could pump out HUNDREDS of replacement 510/eGo connectors in stainless steel or even titanium...the biggest thing would be can it be removed and replaced easily or is it one piece?
    510 threads are m7x0.5

    EGO threads are m12x0.5

    I believe tube thread is m20x1 but only measured with micrometer not a thread gauge, if anyone knows for sure please post.

    Pictures attached.

    And here are some diagrams with dimensions. Most all dimensions measured with a micrometer. There is a small ridge around the circumference for seating in the tube, I am guessing at these dimensions. I tried my best to make sure these are correct but I don't guarantee it, if someone measures different please post. The top cap is three pieces, the metal part, the rubber center pin grommet and the center pin.

    Used a SS tube to pull the top cap off, pulled out the half moon plastic piece below the circuit board then pulled out the circuit board then the button tops fell out. Window is plastic and presses out. Soldered new top cap on to circuit board, set buttons in tube, inserted circuit board then plastic half moon, pressed together in a vise using wood pieces on either end, then inserted plastic window to reassemble. Very easy.

    The top cap is chrome plated brass and has a small flat head Philips on the bottom side with a dap of solder for soldering the ground lead. I do not know the size of that screw. Hot lead solders to center pin which also had a dob of solder on it.

    I had to replace the top cap on my V3 and got an extra just in case my V5 ever needs it. These will fit all the VAMOs but is threaded for a collar ring like the V3/V5 has. Purchased parts from ecigarette impressions.
