    Default Question about RMS

    I have a Vamo V5, it has an option for RMS/ mean.......

    my son got a Vamo V5 from another company, his does not have the option to change his RMS/ mean...
    so I thought maybe he got ripped off and really it's another version of the Vamo....

    But then while researching it I found this on line dealer who list what's on the V5 they sale. It gave me the impression that it simply comes standard as RMS....

    Now I'm trying to figure this out.... Are there 2 types? One standard RMS and one with the ability to change it???

    Here's the link I was looking at.. Vamo V5 APV MOD - Variable Voltage e-Cigarette Battery - ITCVapes

    Any input would be appreciated

    Vaping cost to date..... appx. $350.00.... Monthly vaping cost appx. $30.00, tobacco cost use to be $160. per month!!

    That's interesting that there is a version out there with only the RMS setting. You guys should see if both Vamo's have the MOBILE OUT ON mode. Explained in my other post here.

    Yes, there are two types. The Vamo is made by more than one manufacturer and with at least two different versions of the board. With the exception of being able to switch between RMS and mean, they are identical.

    Quite honestly, most (if not all) folks prefer RMS anyway - I know I do!

    I don't know about your Version Vamo, but mine (V2?) will every Once in Awhile change Modes on it's own. It is Rare but it does happen Occasionally.

    So if you ever pick up you Vamo and the hit Doesn't Taste right, check you Mode Setting before you Chuck your Clearo or Carto or Whatever.

    My Vamo 3 AND my Smok Zmax do that occasionally when I change the batteries, but not every time.

    The Firmware version installed on your Vamo. Your's may be KSD 2.0 version.
    Below please find how to verify your firmware version.

    Vamo's Do have a firmware version.

    V3 firmware version can be verified by:
    Remove the Battery Cap
    Press and Hold the Fire Button
    Reinstall the Battery Cap
    KSD 2.0 or KSD 3.0 should be displayed on the OLED display

    Story is that KSD 3.0 allows switching Mean/RMS (verified on my Vamo V3) while KSD 2.0 does not (RMS only).
    This being true explains why some V3s won't switch Mean/RMS.

    A PBusardo Review - The VAMO V5 - YouTube
    PBtusardo V5 review shows how to switch Mean/RMS

    I wanted to say thanks for this thread. I created a new thread about my V5 I just got because it wasn't behaving like I'd been led to expect from threads here and that half hour review video.

    Now I know I have the "other" style Vamo. It only does RMS and doesn't have the secret output mode menu. And held down the button for a good 20 or 30 seconds after the initial display. But it does everything I bought it for. So I'm happy now, life is good

    I just got my Vamo V2 and I LOVE IT. It has the replaceable top cap, has great 510 threads, and I keep this device set to watts, which makes more sense to me. No issues, whatsoever, with this thing. Looks great. Perhaps improvements have been made.
