    Default Vamo v5 on order, did I order the right batteries to stack?

    AW IMR 18350 700mAh LiMN Rechargeable Lithium Battery
    I ordered two of these to stack in a vamo v5. Are these the proper batteries?

    Using stacked 18350s what is the max amp output, max wattage output?

    Should be fine and I'm using the EFast 800 mAh version of them in my Vamo 5. I also use the EFest 18650 2000 mAh and the AW 18650 Highbreed 3100 mAh with all working fine. Pretty much any good battery in IMR high drain battery in either size will work fine. I stick with eFast, AW, Panosonic, Sony and the Orbatronics.

    I use AW IMR 18650s for 3 ohm single coils and Efest 18350s for the 2.5 ohm dual coils 'cuz that's what I have. Check out PBusardo's review, he may answer your questions: A PBusardo Review - The VAMO V5 - YouTube

    Yes. Good batteries.

    Max when stacking is the Vamo's maxes.
    I'm not completely sure about that in all instances, I don't know if you set it up where 15w will require it to boost above 6v that it will do it. But I am pretty positive that if you have it in voltage mode it will push more than the 15w max.

    The 5a maximum doesn't change.

    Mark your batteries (I use a marker and then put some clear tape over it so it doesn't rub off) so you can rotate them and check their individual voltages to make sure they staying in sync.

    do Vamo V5 batteries need to be stacked? I was under the impression that it took one or the other ( an extension ring for use with the bigger battery, is that correct?
    Ordered a Vamo V5 last night and only ordered 1 of each size...

    one IMR 18350 and one 18650

    No, they don't need to be stacked. LOL. That is a fussy, technical thing if you want to do it safely. I don't and won't.

    I ordered two 18650's and they are doing great. I ordered two 18350's later, just to see what it was like to vape on a shorty, just doesn't last long enough for me to be happy. You might want to order another 18650 later.
    I am a dollar-a-day vaper and a Vamo lover. I recoil clearo heads and mix my own juice.

    You don't need to stack.
    I don't have a V5 (V2 and V3) but I'm pretty sure it can take (1) 18650, (1) 18350 or (2) 18350s.
    Stacked 18350s take up roughly the same space as a single 18650. To use (1) 18350 you remove the extension.

    The benefit of stacking is that it can do higher voltage under some loads and you're always stepping the voltage down so it has a more consistent delivery for the whole runtime. The negative is less run time of 18350s compared to 18650 and safety.

    I have a vamo v3, granted... But, I was under the impression that the battery cap will no screw on all the way, if you stack button tops?

    Keep them as a set. It's best not to mix batteries that have been stacked.
