Checked out the V5 output on the scopemeter, mobile-out is 6.05v pwm. So much for my dc idea, but it's still useful. I used a 510->test-probe adapter, but the vamo was picky about not wanting to see low load impedances, maybe output current is more limited in this mode. Even the scope probe impedance was low enough to make it shut off the mobile-out and revert back to vaping mode.
True, but the question was whether it would work with the Saber flashlight heads without flicker. The heads were designed to work with Saber's mech mods which are pure dc, not pwm. Think Ill save the $18 and buy some nic instead.The V5 does supply >6V to the pin in the mobile out mode but the charging adapter cuts it back to 5V.
Not much chance of that since I used a 510 probe adapter. The vamo didnt like the low input impedance of the test instrument, and I had no problem watching the pwm waveform in normal vaping mode.If you check the V5 output with a probe and make any contact with ground, the display says "Short" and immediately kicks the Vamo back into vaping mode
I don't think I have any desire to use a Vamo as a flashlight but it works very well as an emergency power source for my phone.
Yeah, all my vamo's work pretty well for vaping, and phones are annoying.
Cheers for this
I was having issues with center pin issues and a air flow controller. Vamo couldn't pick up the tank and I got that mobile message and a battery display. Was most confused!
I think it's neat that you could theoretically use a VAMO as a flashlight, or perhaps even an emergency charger. That said, I'll just buy a flashlight rather than take the risk of shorting out my vape stick. If nothing else, I wish they would have incorporated the battery icon on the main display. Easier to read than a number...

I remember reading bad things about RainbowHeaven when I first researched vaping.
Didn't they make junk ego batteries or something a couple of years ago?
EDIT - I just did a quick search and found posts from late 2012 saying that Rainbow Heaven is the original Vamo manufacturer. Never mind.
