They went up about $2 since the last time I checked at Fasttech. They were $26- something. You can run either with a single 18650 or a pair of 18650s with the battery extension on or a single 18350 with that removed by taking the cover off of the bottom of the extension to fasten onto the then bottom of the main body. The V7 and V8 are also out now with the V7 being an updated version of the V5 seen at Original Vamo V V / V W mod Vamo V7 Various colors for vamo vv e-cig Vamo V5 Vamo V7, View Vamo V7, FreeVape Product Details from Shenzhen FreeVape Technology Co., Ltd. on Alibaba.com
That comes in a variety of colors and is still a variable voltage/wattage 3w-15w model. The V8 on the other hand is strictly VW not VV and only runs with a single 18650 battery being a 3w-25w version. The slightly higher wattage range requires the 18650 size and the best for both the V6 20w and V8 25w APVs are High Drain 3100mAH 18650s. The V8 however lacks the adjustable center contact pin and "Smoke Time" setting that adjusts the cutoff time from 0-30 seconds the V6 features.
The one thing to know about the V6 if you intent on one is you have to work fast when trying to go through the menu options or it will go dark on you which is simply a split second exit out of the menu where you would then have to bring it up again. You only have a few seconds initially to enter one of the menu options and then can adjust things the way you want them. That was the only drawback I found when first getting the V6 in.
The Smoke Time(Puff Time Adjuster I call it) and adjustable center contact pin are what make up for that however. Sometimes a replacement coil won't reach far enough unless overtightened to make a good contact where you can then raise the center up.
I've been finding some good prices for the HD as well as other Panasonic 18650s at Orbtronic who specializes in flashlight batteries since that is what this type of battery was originally designed for. Security guards, police, etc. often will carry this type for the longer life type of battery over even the new Duracell Quantum batteries(AA, AAA) they provided various police dept.s with when those were first available for feedback from actual use.

is what I have to use in the Innokin VTR
since that requires the flat top battery while a Vamo will take button tops as well. In fact more batteries like eFest brand which are fatter in diameter usually will actually fit into a Vamo over other mods! I have some Smok ACEs and another basic tube mod made of aluminum that won't take any eFest brand for that reason alone!
How about some 5000mah batteries? With the High Drain when the battery level is down they can run a mod at 2.5v to some extent increasing the time before needing to be recharged when you see them often at 1600-2200mah. 2900-3400 for the non HD is the usual longest life batteries until I ran into a place called TMart and have been using the 5000mah batteries ordered from there. Still have to check out the UltraFire 5000s I didn't see at first when grabbing four of the unbranded blue likely UltraFire generic which have worked well so far for a 4pack at $7.59. The page to look is seen at

I added this in here to mention that the V2 I had I ended passing along to someone in need with the pre V5 models lacking the eGo threading. And the waist line will expand a bit for sure when you quit as I mentioned earlier in the thread. I was under and now a bit over as the belt line will soon let you know as that food starts tasting better and better! Additional walks or exercise to burn calories can help balance things out a bit!

Here is some info on the comparison
There's quite a difference most people do not understand when first new to vaping about voltage vs wattage. Most tanks and clearomizers are geared to run on eGo type 3.7v batteries while some APVs like the Innokin iTaste MVP start off at 7watts which raises the voltage up a bit to 4v. Many tanks run best at 3.9-4.2v with some maxing at 4.4v or higher even such as RDA rebuildable dripper atomizers as they are referred to. Those are what people wrap the coils with on their own for various resistances and the goal there is to put large clouds when vaping! YouTube is loaded with cloud vaping clips! In some cases it's as if some were looking for bragging rights?! if not show pieces.
For the practical every day side however turning up the watts a bit on the other hand is not just to see larger clouds of vapor but to change how a flavor will taste. With the cigarette size ecigs most do not see much of any type of cloud but tend to be sweeter in taste. The higher wattage will raise the temps on the vapor in increments to adjust the flavor so if you find something too sweet and step it up a little you then suddenly find it preferable!
For the Vamo and several other VV/VW type batteries and mods those allow you to adjust the voltage separately from the wattage while others will automatically adjust voltage when changing the wattage output since those automatically detect the ohms of the coil or atomizer attached. Keeps it from cooking the coil or atomizer as one protection there. The V6 like the Innokin 134 are auto on the voltage part.
The new Smok Aro Winder 1600 and 2000mah batteries are variable Wattage but adjust using the same type of knob found on the other variable V batteries like Vision Spinner and eGo Twists. Those show the voltage as well as watts with the markings on the dial however and adjust voltage with the wattage. The Winders I find are best for the beginner over the more complicated mods since the adjuster simplies things. Another advantage of having a VV or VV/VW type battery or mod is being able to turn it down under the 3.7v standard for those who prefer the cooler vape. While the MVP and a few others start off at 7watts for example the Vamo, Twists, Spinners, Winders, and other VV batteries start off at 3.2v or with the V1-V5 Vamos at 3.3v.
The link there is a good reference from that vendor as well as looking over a few safe vaping charts that have been made up over the last few years in particular. Another site for some good information about batteries in general can be found at Basic to Advanced Battery Information from Battery University
Now for safe vaping charts the best reference since are some for voltage and others for wattage is where? Bing images
You can bring up each chart as if it was a jpeg at the search result site and still be able to read over each one.
