    Just now got ahold of a new V5, having gone directly from a V2. I like it, but can someone let me know if I've got this detail right? I think the V2 no1 = V5 Output RMS, and the V2 no2 = V5 Output Mean, is that correct?

    Also, what is the difference between LCD:eek:n and LCD:eek:ff? LCD:eek:ff doesn't seem to turn the LCD display off, unless I completely misunderstand what LCD means, which I haven't ruled out.

    I only have a v5, but the output can be switched between RMS and mean.
    Regarding LCD off and on setting, if you set to 'Off', the chosen resistance/battery/output info doesn't display each time you hit the fire button.

    Someone will have to correct me if I'm wrong but V1, V2, V5 have both have RMS and mean mode. V3 and V4 only have Mean mode...which from my understanding is more accurate / "better" method of determining voltage so I think a large percentage of vamo users use the mean mode...just from what I have gathered?

    V4 is same as V3 except its in a V2 body and is missing RMS mode. V3 is missing RMS mode but has new chipset but has the "swirl" design. V5 has both the RMS and the mean mode but has V3 chipset but body similar to V2 design (non swirl stainless steal design).

    Probably want to double check me on that but I think those are major differences.

    At this point I would go with V3 or V5 depending on what you like for style. The V3 swirl design has some people liking it and others hating it. I personally like the design but find that the chrome finish is deteriorating rather quickly. I'm getting spots where hand/sweat gather that are removing chrome finish. The V5 comes in stainless steel that has everything the V3 has and if you dislike the swirl look that is your best bet as it has all features.

    The only thing I've been cautioned about is buying a 1-2 adapters to save on your threads. https://www.fasttech.com/products/1284600

    I'm pretty new to the game and think they fixed that with V3+ but for a 2$ it doesn't hurt to have some of those around so that you protect your main threads and only damage is done to adapter and tanks.

    So, then "Output Mean" on the V5 is the same setting as "no2" on the V2, correct?

    Ah, that makes sense, thanks. Of couse, I wasn't looking at the display when I was hitting the fire button, so I didn't even notice it was displaying!

    Yes, V3 and beyond ONLY have the RMS option

    Mohamed, you have it mostly right except you have the RMS and mean mode info backwards. I have corrected your statement below:

    AFAIC, mean mode is truly mean. I don't see a use for it as I find it just too much. It's hard for me to get a vape that isn't making the coil too hot and causing burnt flavor. I have to say that all my attys fall between 1.5 - 2.5 ohms so, maybe mean mode is good for higher ohm attys (3 ohm >) but I find it useless.

    I'm not sure on that I think the V5 reintroduced both options. I'll have to google now to try and prove that...but that's what I remember when I was looking this stuff up about a month ago.

    Thanks for correction...memory is not what it used to be ;) Had most of it right just switched around some terminology.

    Now I'm just confused. I had always heard to use no2 mode on the V2, but that apparently corresponds to the Mean mode, but people here seem to be saying not to use Mean mode.

    I was wrong and mixed up my terminology...the RMS mode is the "preferred mode" Reread the correction that Corogman made to my post

    I previously had post where I switched the RMS and mean around. The one above is correct.

    If you have the older V1 or V2 models

    Refer to http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/vamo/481772-vamo-v3-instructions.html or more particularly this http://www.valleyvapes.com/assets/images/Vamo_Manual.pdf

    NP and sorry for my mixup between terminologies. You get old and things like that just happen ;) Eventually got it corrected for everyone though. It took me several days to get everything in my brain about the differences between V1-V5...a month later and some of that knowledge leaked out or somehow got flip flopped with the terminology.

    I've also read the V5's have both modes again. Members here with V5's have said so. From what I understand more than one manufacturer makes Vamos, however, so it is possible some V5s have it and some don't. ?

    My v5 has both modes.

    My V5 has both modes, hence the thread.

    It seems like this V5 extends my battery life. Is that possible?
