    The VAMO can accept either 18350 and 18650 batteries, however, apparently not all actually work with this unit.

    If you own a VAMO, what batteries are you using and where did you get them?

    I'm also interested in knowing if they are they button tops.

    Hopefully, this thread will also prove useful for future VAMO owners.

    I read that some users have trouble with trustfires. I woudn't use them.
    I use AW IMR 18650 and AW IMR 18350. All button tops. Bought from local vendor. They work fine with the Vamo.

    Health Cabin say this on their site:
    I haven't tried 2x 18350.

    i used the orange flattop IMR 18650 it was maybe a year old, when I put it in it wouldn't work and after that the battery wouldn't charge anymore and I had to throw it out so be careful using those.

    I am using the 18650 aw 2000 button tops that come from provape, and also the18650 panasonic 2250 button tops I got from orbtronics, they both fit easily and work well, and looks like there might be room enough left over to try a panny 3000.

    Mine's the same, and I've used AW IMR button top and Panasonic flat top with no problem.

    Found out last night that if you use a couple of spacers you can also use a 18500 in it. Got several of them. Just need to add two spacers from my Xtar charger and works great.

    I haven't received my VAMO yet, but when I do, if I feel any rattling with a 18650 battery I think I'll try a "vape safe fuse" to stop the rattling, just a thought.

    I was using the 18350's in short mode, not stacked. I'm not a stacker.

    I tried it with the flat tops and buttons I linked to, since I had both on hand.

    Only rattle I have so far is the metal buttons.

    Thanks. I am going to pick up two of the button tops you linked to use in the short mode as well.

    I think unprotected high drain are better for these mods.

    I have both Trustfire and Ultrafire 18350 1200mah protected batteries and neither will work in the VAMO. Crystal Clear Vaping has the efest IMR button top or flat 2/$10.95 with free shipping.

    I bought a set of the efest 18350's and an efest 18650 from smoktek when i bought the unit and they all 3 work fine in the unit both stacked 18350's and singular. I don't like it with the stacked batteries it seemed overpowered. Am going to pick up another 18650 from batteries plus next week a flattop and see how that works.

    I have a V2 Gunmetal Vamo.
    AW IMR 18650 button top has a very very small rattle.
    I pulled the spring, and just extended it a little. Now the rattle is gone. Its working good.

    Why do you think that. Should they have button top or? What brand do you suggest? Mah?
