A PBusardo Review – The Vamo

1/07/13 – Spring Issue:
Let me start off by saying this…
Attention Manufacturers… PROPER TESTING WILL AVOID SUCH ISSUES!
Ok, here’s the deal. The Vamo has a potential spring issue. The one I used in the review had, what I believe, was the original thin spring. Note that I did not, nor do I receive ANY heat from the bottom cap.
People were having issues with that spring (rattly batteries) so they replaced it with a beefier one. That spring may have an issue.
Is yours effected? I honestly don’t know. The post was found on Health Cabin relating to what they call the Bamboo which is a Vamo. Could the issue just be related to units purchased there? Again, I don’t know. I’m just passing along what I’ve heard.
This is one of the problems with all these versions and revisions coming out without proper in-lab, alpha, beta, and field testing and it really needs to stop. A properly tested and rock solid device should be far more important than rushing something to market.
So… if you are experiencing ANY heat from the bottom cap… STOP USING IT and contact your vendor regarding the issue. Here is the post as seen on Health Cabin…
We are very sorry to inform you that we discontinue selling eGo Bamboo APV(Stainless/Chrome/Black Chrome) for a while because the big wide spring in the cap has big resistance, which makes the Bamboo cap very hot when Bamboo is working, especially when Bamboo works at a high Voltage or Wattage with a low resistance atomizer. We are working on new good springs with low resistances and expect to get new springs ready in some days.
We will resume selling the products and their caps when the new springs are ready.
If you have Bamboos with the wider big wrong springs, please stop using the products and contact us by ticket system.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
If you have any questions or need any assistance, please feel free to let us know by using Help Desk and submiting a ticket.
We look forward to always being able to serve you better.
