    Anybody heard about the lavatube VV mod, based on a 18650 bat, regulated from 3.0 to 6.0 Volts in .1
    Volts steps at 2.5 amp max. and with a volt indicator.

    Saw the CAD designs of it the other day. If it comes to life and does all that is offered at under the $100 price they are talking about, it'll be some big competion for the higher VV mods on the market already

    I bought one last night for 35€, should be around 50$ from a trustable spanish suplier. delivery for around 20 september. They still dont know the design (looking) of it, but the technical stuff is quite defined.
    At this price I couldn,t resist, If not that it is the company I almost get all my stuff from, and who is very reliable, I wouldn´t believe it.
    Then I always thought that one day the chinese will start seriously producing VV units, as the first of them is doing now, and that will change the market.

    Looks pretty much like a buzz with a digital pot and a booster circuit. If they go with a nice aluminum tube, allow you to buy different tops for different atomizer threadings and price it in the vicinity of $100, I'd say it should be a winner.

    I haven't done a lot of business with Volano but, I always thought of them as a vendor that sold other companies products with their name and cosmetic changes on them. Is this movement into product development something new?

    If they can put this out for for under $100, in a kit including batteries and a charger, it will sell like crazy. VV with a digital readout? Complete kit? I'd hop on it for sure.

    I don't know if I'd want to be the first in line though lol I'm not a "work out the bugs" kind of guy... I'd want it to work the way it should!

    Well, as for prices, The body only version, withouth batteries and charger, is sold by the reseller I bought it from for just 50$.
    I took the body only, because have lots of 18650 bats and chargers.

    You've purchased one? From the info in that thread, it looks like they are taking emails to get an idea of interest, but that's it. I'm quite surprised they are taking money for these units when they don't even have the design set yet, let alone prototypes given out to testers to work out bugs.

    I like the designs. I started with Volcano and moved to others but I wouldn't mind buying my first vv mod from them at all.

    No, I got it from a Spanish company, I got also a big part of my other stuff from, and prooved in the past to be very reliable.
    At that price you can´t go wrong.

    I watched Volcanos weekly chat this week and they said that they changed a few things on it and that they were building them by hand and only making a few to test out. Mike also said that the chips were American made. They are aiming to have a few prototypes at vapefest

    In next week will start the ship of this Lavatube.
    In europe the price in all the shop is 47 € and it's a good price.
    Since i'm really curious to try it because i'm a Provari owner and fan from 5 months so i'm really interested in VV mod because i think that a vari volts mod is indispensable for a good vaping.
    The price is really interesting ! About 1/3 respect the Provari !
    So we've only to wait.
