Vamo V2 APV E Cig – Basic Guide & Instructions

Posted by: Lightspeeds PC Repair

The Vamo V2 APV (Advanced Personal Vaporizer) is a high performance, variable volt, variable watt APV. An Ecig, or electronic cigarette, much more heavy duty, more power, more vapor depending on your tank, cartomizer and settings. Features a blue OLED display, Power/Fire Button and 2 smaller + & – buttons to increase volts/wattage. The + & – buttons also have a few other settings available for your preferences.
Vamo_V2_chromeThe Vamo V2 APV e cig produces a massive amount of vapor and throat hit with the right settings, and atomizer. The Vamo V2 is for the advanced e cig user. Now around $40 for the Vamo V2 is an excellent price, solid quality and great vape! (Batteries & battery charger needed also)
I purchased my Vamo V2 about back in June 2012. It came with no instructions at all, just in a box. After a few weeks of figuring out and picking pieces of information, I put it all together with the information below. Updated 9/2014, same Vamo v2 still operating fine.
Color Options:
Chrome, black chrome or stainless steel. The stainless steel version is about $10 more in price. Have heard on the chrome or black chrome Vamo versions the finish tends to wear off, and leaves blemishes on the finish. Mainly due to the oils on your hand etc. Have not had this happen to mine as of yet, I have the Black chrome version. There are Vamo wraps or skins that you can further personalize the Vamo. So if the chrome or black chrome finish blemishes, you can invest in a “wrap” or skin for it.
Vamo Threading:
510 / Ego. Compatible with 510 atomizers, cartomizers, Vision Ego Clearomizer 2.0, Ego CE4 PLUS V2, Vision Vivi Nova Tanks, Smoktech DCTank
(Kanger Clearomizer requires 510-Ego Adapter)

Vamo V2 Batteries Compatibility:
IMR or AW “unprotected” type battery cells ONLY.
IMR eFest 18650 Battery

- IMR 18350 Unprotected Type (Short Battery)
– IMR 18650 Unprotected Type (Long Length Battery)
Flat or button top batteries will work in the Vamo V2
The Vamo APV e cig is not a “passthrough”, batteries are charged in a separate battery charger.
Vamo V2 Battery Configurations:
– 1 IMR 18350 battery for short length Vamo
– 2 IMR 18350 batteries double stacked for longer length Vamo
– 1 IMR 18650 battery for longer length Vamo (same length as double stacked 18350’s)
The Vamo comes with an extender center casing adapter for the longer Vamo. I prefer the shorter, single 18350 battery setup. It is a much stealthier, and good size to handle in hand. The long length option (with the 18650) battery, it begins to look like a police officers night stick.

The Vamo V2 in short, 1 – 18350 battery without the extender tube casing setup is the same height as the Ego 900mah e cig with a CE4 clearomizer as you see in photo.
Vamo V2 Battery Run Time:
I’m using eFest brand IMR 3.7v on both 18350 & 18650 batteries:
– Single efest IMR 18350 is 800mah, I get about 3 hours of moderate use. 800mah expected.
– Single efest IMR 18650 is 2200mah, I get about 1-2 days vaping.
– Remaining volts (battery life) can be displayed on the Vamo’s OLED display
– Fully charged battery reads 4.2 volts, at 3.3 volts Vamo displays “LOv” – time to recharge batteries.
For example, with the 18650 2200 mAh battery, if I’m using the Vamo ALL day long the 18650 battery will last the day. If I am mixing in the Vamo along with using my other e cig battery devices, the 18650 will last a few days.
Vamo V2 APV E CigI vape at around 6.0-7.5 watts average. Ohm resistance on tanks of 2.2-2.6 range. I work from home, so have a tendency to chain vape at times. Your run time will be different based on your vaping habits, settings and choice of battery brands available. Have heard batteries do a better job once “broken in” through 5 or 10 complete charge cycles. Other brand batteries, higher priced might give you more run time. The higher the “mah”, the longer the run time, that’s the way it is suppose to work anyway.

Note: the higher you run your wattage or voltage on the vamo, your battery run time will decrease quicker. A single 18350 800mah battery above 7-8 watts only lasts maybe 2 hours for me.

Have read many recommend Panasonic IMR batteries. The quality of the battery, higher mah rating, your vaping habits, how long your “vapes” are, variable volt settings and how you take care if the batteries all determine your run time. Good idea to get yourself familiar how a volt meter works to manually check your batteries discharge & charge volts. Important not to over charge, or fully discharge the batteries. The Vamo V2 shuts down basically when battery hits 3.3 volts = Low Battery on OLED display.

Tip: purchase yourself at least 3 batteries and rotate them into the Vamo V2. Keep 2 fully charged as you use one (set) in the Vamo V2.

    recently a good friend of mine gave me a vamo v2 and i think its great. i have never used an electronic cigarette before. i find it works very well for me. that sure sucks you had a bad experience with vapor room i read on their website they were having problems with their phones so, i guess they are not very efficient in other areas as well. :( anyway, i would say vamo v2 is a really good product.

      thanks for the comment. Have had the Vamo now for 4 weeks, great price, solid quality vaporizer. The Vapor Room completely “dropped the ball” and did nothing to correct it on my end, which I was quite surprised. Other vendors on line go out of there way to make sure all is good, The Vapor Room did not care one bit. They deleted my asking for help, my problem with the order after receiving off there FB page, THAT’s what told me what there all about.

    My V2 has worked fairly well for several months, but it is built rather cheaply for such a heavy-feel product (it doesn’t handle being dropped very well). MY QUESTION IS: have you ever seen or heard of an error message that simply says “02”. Mine does that and cuts off instead of vaping now. It will cut back on when you remove & reinstall the battery, then 5 quick clicks… but won’t vape, just cuts off again with same error. I replaced the atomizer on one of my Kanga tanks and it does the same, no help. Local retailer that sold it to me never heard of that 02 error message either. Thanks, Dave

      Never heard or had the “02” error code. How ever googling “vamo 02 error code” is showing quite a few posts about it. Defective product, circuit board sounds like.

    The concept behind the electronic cigarette from brands like 10 Motives, dubbed the “healthier smoking alternative” is that you can either use e-cigarettes to cut down on your smoking habits (alongside real cigarettes) or use them to help you give up completely by throwing your real cigarettes in the bin. Different kinds or classes are available where you can choose widely. Many e-juice manufacturers have become more inventive with electric cigarette flavours and they’re giving electronic cigarette smokers more freedom.
