    Question for Vamo users. How is it holding up? How long have you had yours? And finally, what will its life expectancy be?

    React! :)

    I would be interested too. I have posted a thread regarding longevity on APV's in general and got NO response. It may be because no one has a good report to give, or nothing has really been used for very long because we keep buying new PV's, it seems, we generally like a collection of many rather than using just one consistantly.

    You didn't really do that, did you? You just wanted to sound hard. Epic fail imho.

    Mine I had for 2 months give or take. Works great. I have gun metal so the finish has taken a beating but still works great. I have it and a mech. Mainly use my vamo with a aga t2 for daily use and use my mech at night. I love the genesis atomizers.

    So my vamo in my pocket or ash tray in my car. All over the place.

    First one lasted for 3 months, sold the second one. Provari is almost one year going strong.

    I think you hit the proverbial nail on the head in a few areas. I will admit like many vapers I am somewhat of a hobbyist when it comes to vaping. I have been through 6 mods in the less than a year. While I may say I've retired a mod I go back to it occasionally. Being back in the workplace for a major retail store I also find I'm using my ego twist more to be stealth at the company smoke shack. Add to that the fact that in the 9 months I've vaped so many mods including the Vamo have come out. It seems like when I first started it was pretty much Lava Tube or Pro Vari for APV's. With that said it may be too early to tell which ones will last for years and which ones will be in the junk box in 6 months. I personally think the Vamo is pretty promising and have many friends who love em.

    We have 2 of the SS and have used them heavily for the past 6 months. They are still working like the day that we bought them. The best mod that I have owned to date. Not to mention that you could buy 6-7 Vamos for the price of 1 Provari. Great value IMHO

    Get the stainless steel and not the chromed one. Had mine for like 4 months before it started wearing on the outside and the bronze (i think, it is that shade, anybody) started coming through. Looks crappy. the "-" button pop back failed and now it sometimes starts cycling down to like 15 watts- it just really annoys you when you dont notice when your distracted (like typing on the net) and you take a long drag of some harsh vape *yuk*
    So it is now sitting on a shelf and I use it when I roll my aromizer coils on my Vivi nova to test the resistance- het it has some use. I saw the video of the dude that opens it and how to take it apart. I might, sometime when I'm really bored, try to open it when the boards become available for sale b/c my buttons are not chrome anymore:( I know I just have like everything wrong with it.. hahaha
    I used to take it everywhere though. Still just my hand holding it really went through that chrome.
    Oh and the voltage would drop from time to time (I didnt test it when it occured) so I switched to wattage and that helped. But still the voltage dropping for no reason???!!!! ...!!!??? So I tested it on various voltage points and it was not linear at all. 6 v was 6 v ok no problem there but 3.5 v was showing 3.7 on the multimeter (all these figures are unloaded BTW) 3.7 was showing like 3.7, 4.0 was showing 3.8 , 5 was showing 4.5. Not very linear but no big deal cause all you have to do is up it to where you feel comfort. But still though not very reassuring in such an impressive looking product that you would think can run like stuff made in the "old days" or what I can imagine a Provari might be made like. IDK I wouldnt get one again.
