    Question Vamo Bamboo

    I have a question....

    What is the difference between RMS and AVG mode? I am using RMS mode on this which is called NO2.

    In my non electronics guy version, the people that got C's for Advanced maths 1 and 2 in high school wrote the AVG code and the ones that got A's wrote the RMS code

    I was hoping you wouldn't even find that to confuse things further, you're better off in RMS more accurate on these mods.

    RMS is more accurate. I wouldn't know which mode mine is in, I just set it to where I like it, I'm not a numbers man.

    On my Staino Vamos, the AVG mode works better with the AGA-T.

    If you are using a genny(like the AGA-T) & want higher watts then the AVG mode may be better for you. For those not using a genny & want more accurate volt/watt reporting from their Vamo, then RMS is the way to go.
    The AVG will actually give you slightly more power output than it is reporting on the screen, at higher settings, while the RMS will be close to spot on of what is being reported on the screen.

    Does the Vamo put out more watts in AVG mode than RMS mode? That doesn't make sense if it did?

    I believe my ECD Meter was showing 6 Watts on AVG, when I had 4 Watts selected on the Vamo.

    Using RMS I had 4 Watts selected and it showed 4 on the meter.

    Didnt test Volts mode though, only Watt mode

    Oh, I knew that
    I believe from Stoney's testing, the Vamo maxed out at ~10W with a single 19650, not sure about which mode, if it was both or just one.

    I think you need to stack batteries to get the full 15W out of it.

    well said noe.

    on 'no 2' mode (rms) with me ECD meter,I just tried at 6W and also at 8W and its pretty damn close, within 0.3 of a watt or so.

    on 'no 1' ave mode .. 6W is coming in at closer to 8W, 8W is now about 8.5W, now thats in 18650 mode on a 2.2Ω atty. I can tell you it will change in this mode as the atty is changed, but not a lot till you get very LR, may also drop a bit more as battery drops.

    using stacked batterys you will find massive changes between the 2 modes. i might have a bit of a play later and report back.

    pretty much what noe said though, I would use it on rms mode for its accuracy unless i needed maybe a bit more, (which i personally don't) its not going to manage 15W in either mode with a single battery in actuality, but in stacked mode and fresh batterys I would estimate 15W could well be 20W plus, depends on atty.

    This is not an ideal mod for gennies in my opinion, its a recipe for disaster. works great on standard silica type stuff though.
    In order of useful: Provari V2 and V1, vamo, eGo twist, Katana v3, Hex, Orion v2, LavaTube, eGo x 6, VMAX, 510N, Tick V2, Tick V1, noEgo 18650, noEgo 14650 , Indulgence x 2, 905 6v mod, KR808D
