VAMO 3 Affordable, reliable and just this side of ugly?

Vamo v3

The VAMO, a much-loved APV from Fasttech has legions of fans all over the Vaping Universe. With good reason I might add. It is dependable, versatile, and cheap. Well, not cheap, let’s just say inexpensive. There’s just something inherently ‘good’ about a VAMO, and with the VAMO 3 Fasttech has made some great improvements, and a couple of missteps too. Consensus has it that it is also ugly as all get out. I personally don’t think it’s ugly, I think it’s unique looking…different…certainly not just a face a mother could love.
Because of all the hoopla surrounding the 2nd annual July is eJuice Month we’ve neglected some long overdue hardware reviews, and the VAMO 3 is one of them.
I’ve been using my new VAMO 3 for just about 3 weeks now, and I’ve been enjoying it immensely. Rather than wait until August to publish a review I decided to give it a slot in July so we could inform our readers that if they’ve been holding off on upgrading their VAMO 2 or some other mod, you don’t have to. The VAMO 3 is one heck of an APV and if you don’t mind the curvy lines (rifling) on the body, and there is no reason you should, there’s no reason not to love one, buy one, use one. Where else can you get so much for so little?
Before discussing my own real world usage I thought I’d go over the full feature list of the $56 mod.
