Single 18350?
The description calls for 2x18350 or 1x18650. But am I safe in assuming that 1x18350 is fine without the extension?

hi, this is exactly the question as to why GOOD QUALITY IMR 18350 is recommended !!. a vamo can pull upto around the 5 AMPS mark if you crank the settings up ! (thats a lot!!!)... and a "normal" 18350 (li-co) NOT IMR high drain type battery... is being "overdriven" at these sort of levels. a li-co chemistry battery can fail in a completely different way to a "safe chemistry" imr... google "vent with flames" for more info on this.remember with a li-co your relying on a protection circuit which has been known to fail on some batteries.

also if your stacking 18350 batteries there is dangers with this too (mis-matched capacity batteries/state of charge etc)..if you end up reverse charging a cell in a multi-cell lithium powered device..the lithium cell being reverse-charged can and will "vent with flames/explode"in particular if your mod etc does not have low voltage cut off.reverse charging happens when you have mis-matched cells ... one goes flat..the other battery trys to chage it... BANG !!!

just my opinion.. but in the beginners sticky thread there should be a link to a site like "battery university", this has some great info on batteries.

also most of the data you will find posted on the internet is from BRAND NEW cells, but people sometimes forget as cells age with cycles/ time, there ability to perfrom at optimum levels changes!! the batteries become more stressed when trying to supply high current, which they had no problem delivering with when they were new.

im more of a flashlight guy than a vaper, im a senior member on CPF/BLF... and these lithium batteries have put some of us in A&E with PERMANENT health damage .

my take on lithium batteries is "look after them and they look after you" :)

regards and enjoy your device SAFELY

I'm waiting for my Vamo V2 and I read somewhere that even if you use one 18350 3.7V battery you can still play with the variable voltage up to 6 volt. How is that possible? I guess you would need 2x 18350 stucked.

To Mirko.. I use quite a few mods with 18350 (IMR/800mah) batteries and have no problem pulling 5-6volts. I usually use watts now at a power of 7.5-9 range. I'm a fan of smaller mods (i'm a girl.. go figure) :) Sure I like to go crazy with huge mods and 30amp batteries but not for an everyday vape.

On a quick note.. I don't rebuild coils or do any sub-ohm vapeing so I don't really go above 4.8 volts when I use VV only devices. ^..^
