I agree with Vapor. I did this math before buying my vamo. I had fried 2 ego batteries building my first coils and decided I needed a ohm meter. Looking at the prices, buying the vamo sounded much more interesting. So I did.

Something like the Vamo can do everything this can do and much more.... The Vamo is a good backup.... I doubt you can vape out of this box in a pinch.... If you have more money than you know what to do with buy this... If you want a good electronic dedicated meter buy a multi meter.... It cost lest than this and can also test your batteries... Do what you will but something like this will never see my vape dollars.... BTW FT just listed a bunch of MM.

So you carry this and a multi meter around with you? You can buy a good working cheap mm on eBay for 5 dollars delivered. It will check your ohms, battery voltage, and much more! A much bigger bang for the buck...

@vapor I never would carry a multimeter around with me or even a ohms tester. That's why I don't really see what the big complaint is about this. If you wire your coils right from the get go, there is a zero need to be away from home and needing to know what ohms you have.

This can also double as a stand/ holder for your atty while you are building coils. I have trouble with some attys holding them in my hand or putting them on a mod while rebuilding <(off course I turn it off)...........it just feels awkward sometimes. You can get one for cheaper in the states.

"Umm because carrying another eCig just for a ohms reader that only reads x.x is plain retarded."

"I never would carry a multimeter around with me or even a ohms tester."


I wouldn't leave home without a backup PV in the car. So why not have a ohm/volt meter complete with a back up PV all in one unit (a vamo or something like it and even cost less)! In fact you can buy a Multimeter and a vamo for the price of this tester!

Agreed, I use my Vamo as an Ohm meter, or my voltage checker to check my Ohms.
Aside from not having a USB connector, there really isn't much of a difference.
I don't see why "carrying it around" should be an issue...I rebuild at home so the Vamo just sits right next to my Helping Hands, in fact, since I never use the Vamo I may actually glue it down to a hard surface.

If you're serious about building coils a dedicated ohms resistance checker is a must IMHO. I personally do not want to connect and disconnect coils from my Vamos/SVDs repetitively wearing the threads in the 510 connections.
I do coils as a personalized service for my customers as well as for myself, with this device I'll be using a power bank for the USB connection.

@Wylie

Then use a multi meter.... They are much more accurate anyway...

The wires are kind of a pain holding the atty at the same time and no, not all multimeters are more accurate.

I have received mine already and modified it with a small switch and battery pack, didn't like the way the power bank was working with it. It can now be powered by way of 14500s,AAs,AAAs,C cells,18490s,18500s some of these by way of adapters. No USB cord needed anymore, it's gone mobile. ;)

For the original price of 30 bucks you could have bought a mm that was way more accurate. The new price is more realistic but still high for what it is. If they added a volt tester it would make more sense. Then it would do all the electrical work needed to vape. You still need to buy a multimeter or volt tester to cover the bases.


also FYI you could have bought a ohms board, battery box, and 510 connector for much less money (if you was going to rebuild it anyway).
