    I already own a Vamo and really like it. I want to get another, but I can't decide between the Vamo or the Sigelei Zmax. Does anyone that owns both help me out with my decision? Thanks!

    From what I've read they have the same chip and should function pretty much the same. Sigelei makes a telescoping VV that can accommodate an 18500 that looks interesting.

    So why's the Zmax so much more expensive

    They both perform the same, biggest difference is the button configuration. The Vamo uses 3 buttons the Zmax, uses 1 button, just different ways of doing the same thing. Go with which tube you like better.

    If you do go with the Vamo I'd recommend going with the SS version as the other finishes have been reported to wear really easy as well as show fingerprints and scratches more.

    I love my Vamo and prefer the way it looks, didn't see the need to spend extra on the Zmax. The Vamo is a taller if that matters to you.

    That's my question too, maybe the body costs more to produce, or maybe the chips just got cheaper.

    Zmax is a great device, it probably cost more due to the increased level of difficulty to machine stainless steel. It is a very hard metal and thus it takes longer to machine. I am a machinist and have broke many a bit trying to hurry through a piece of stainless.

    I have a chrome Vamo and a SS Sigelei Zmax. The Zmax is far sturdier and better constructed. But the Vamo can be used in short single 18350 mode and I like the button configuration better. With the price difference, the Vamo is a better deal IMHO.

    I have both, and I like them both. VAMO is longer and heavier, but you can use it in 18350 mode, although with the VAMO I have to use a 510 to ego adapter to run T2's and T3's. The Sig ZMax is a nice device, not quite as tall and lighter, you can run T2's and T3's without an adapter, it has the one button menu system, so not quite as easy to adjust voltage/watts.

    If it comes down to price, VAMO wins, not sure how many VV/VW mods you have, but if you are like many of us you will end up with more than one. I have five, counting the spinner. Good chance that which ever one you chose, eventually you will end up with both.

    I actually use all mine in rotation, different delivery systems, different juices, don't have to constantly change delivery systems.

    I didn't want to worry about the chrome finish starting to peel off on the Vamo, so I bought the Zmax. Better unit for the price

    There is a SS version of the Vamo as well.

    The Sigelei Zmax is made of higher quality materials. I've had 2 vamos they don't take abuse very well and the what seems like painted on chrome rubs off easily. Look into the ZMax v3 telescopic you'll be able to use 18350, 18650, 18500 or dual 18350 configs without the need to swap any tubes. VaporAlley has them for a decent price.

    You can always get a Jwrap (at jwraps.com) for the Vamo to protect it. They even have clear wraps if you don't want to change the look. :) I think the extra buttons make the menu easier to use and the display is nice. :vapor:

    SG zmax is made better and has a better screen but in the end everything inside is the same and to me produces the same vape.
