Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Unlike the first versions of this legendary mod, the 6 version shows many improvements (initiated from the 5 version to be exact).
Finish the legendary hair trailing inside the mod on the screen.
Finished also the cross insertion of the interface screen ...
Finish the old LCD screen ...
No more squeaks of threads!
We are in front of a successful product, which leaves nothing to be desired, for a price of 40 euros! and I say bravo!
Why this craze for this mod (besides the fact that in its version 3 it was the first mod electro I ever bought) simply because at this price, we can add a good atomizer to thirty euros and for 70 euros , far less than the fateful bar of 100 ticket, we can have a serious setup!

Reviewer's comments on functional features
I repeat myself, I ramble, but for 40 euros, we have everything a modern electronic mod can and must offer in terms of features.
I regret that the passage of 18350 - 18650 accu compatibility is done through the removal of a part of the tube, the bottom cap then fixing to the thread remaining available ... because we can lose "18650 extension ... But in the measure or vamo is not telescopic ... I quibble on a point of detail and personally it has not (yet) ever happened ..
Another point that I regret is the need to buy separately the adapter to use the Vamo Power Bank mode to recharge your phone for example ... but with an entry ticket to 40 euros we can not all to have.
With the arrival of the new SX chipset on the Vamo and the support of the OLED screen, I have to admit the possibility of simultaneously having on the screen all the information of vape and battery charge.
In summary, from a functional point of view, this old Vamo, has everything from a youngster launched to great marketing and sold twice as expensive!

Only wrong note in the conditioning of Vamo ... the manual in English.
That's the only reason it does not have 5 / 5 ... that mod builders at 200 euros take seed ... when they sell us their mods in a plastic box whose indications on the slice is the only information that the vapoteur has, it makes you dream ...

The mood ticket of the reviewer
You will have entered it I like the Vamo.
To be honest this is the sixth copy that I acquire during my life as a vaper ...
What happened to others? By dint of good and loyal services they let me go or it's me ... on concrete ... breaking a particular screen, making this or that button unusable ...
Do I regret having six? no ! Simply because if I lose it, breaks it or after a few months it lets me go (the number three betrayed me after only two months ... a batch problem probably ...) these are only 40 euros ... certainly these are sub, but we are far from the minimum 50 ticket requested by many manufacturers.
I'll be honest, either the vamo will let go in the first few weeks (and it will be sufficient to play the guarantee) or it will be your favorite companion for many months, even years!
The 6 version is a very nice evolution, so much so that I wonder why he did not take the opportunity to update the firmware to allow a boot with a resistance of the order of 0.6 ohms in place and place this minimum blocking value of 1.5 ohms dating from the prehistoric age of the vape.
If you are a beginner and you are looking to buy your first mod it can only be the Vamo ... if you are a veteran vaper not wishing to jeopardize every day that God is doing his beloved pipeline and looking for a mod of extra ... it can only be the Vamo.
The one and only reason I see for not buying it would be snobbery! but that would mean that in these times of crisis you have something to see! Good for you !
If on the contrary, like me, you manage your budget as a good family man, the Vamo is to be considered in your future acquisition options ... for you or to offer!
Looking forward to reading you.
