That pretty much sums it up with me too. It does everything I got a Vamo for. I'm was just curious about exactly what I got, hence my creating this thread. I even made the clone of a clone comment

That is what I paid for the Lambo 6 itself at Smoktek.

Based on a TV type screen they both do the same thing really. It simply comes down to a difference of using them with light sources. Other than that I wouldn't know as long as I can read them be it indoors or outdoors in sun light. Don't think there is much difference really except how clean the letters look on the V5 compared to the LCD/LED screens.

"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."
ok i am not an expert but i was wondering about my vamos when i first joined ecf. the V3 has the swirl pattern on it and will strip down into just the control unit. the V4 from what i was told had the V3 chip set and V2 body, top ring and first battery section are press fit on. here is a pic of both of my vamos, ignore the black o-rings. just checked my v3 says ksd 3.0

This what my V5 looks like. I only know for sure it uses a V3 chipset, and a V2 body, but has a removable top cap. My bottom cap, and bottom battery tube section is removable for 18350 mode. The control head and lower tube assembly right under the control head are press fit together.
Just got my Vamo V5 from fasttec and firmware says KSD 3.0
Holding down the left button will switch average and RMS and output mean.
I have no icons or puff counter on the display.

I just got my V5 from a local dealer a few days ago. One interesting note that they mentioned was that the V5's menu system had been slightly revamped, so it may be that the poster has one of these, rather than the other model. As for the O-ring not coming off... sounds suspicious to me. I'm wondering if maybe someone sold him a knockoff or something... who knows.
I didn't even realize that the V5 could switch between RMS and AVG. I guess I should read the instructions! What does that mean anyway? What's the difference? How does it affect the vaping experience?
