Variable Voltage Vaping with Volcano.

Say hello to the fourth device offering from Volcanoecigs...the LAVATUBE! It's time to kick your vaping into high gear! The all new LAVATUBE is a specially designed variable voltage electronic cigarette that provides you with anywhere from 3 to 6 volts of vaping power with the easy click of a few buttons. Our team spent many months designing this device and there are many cool features and tech specs that separate the LAVATUBE from the herd:

LAVATUBE Features:

  • Aluminum body
  • 1- power button
  • 1- voltage up button
  • 1- voltage down button
  • 1- activation button
  • 1- LCD screen, which shows the current voltage the device is set on.
  • 1- 510 threaded connection
  • 1- vented removable end cap w/ spring for battery tension
  • Uses 1- AW IMR High Drain18650 LiMN battery

Tech Specs:

  • Selectable voltage from 3v to 6v in 0.1v increments
  • Power on/Off Button - hold the button down for 5 seconds to turn the device on, hold the button again for 5 seconds to turn the device off.
  • + Button: On press, increases voltage by .1 increments between 3volt and 6 volt. When you reach 6 volts, the user starts back at 3 volts
  • - Button: On press, decreases voltage by .1 increments between 3volt and 6 volt. When you reach 3 volts, the user starts back at 6 volts
  • + and – Button: Press and hold both buttons for five second to disable the + and – button, locking the device on the voltage it is currently set at.
  • Regulated output which keeps the voltage the same with each puff - regardless of the remaining battery power. As the battery drains, the device will keep the voltage consistent.
  • If the activation button is held down for 10 seconds or longer, the LAVATUBE will shut itself off until the button is released. To prevent overheating the atomizer and the device.
  • Short Circuit/Atomizer Protection. The LAVATUBE can recognize an atomizer with too low of a resistance for the current voltage setting and will drop the voltage to 3.7v to protect both the battery and atomizer. If the atomizer is too low or shorted out it will shut off power to the device to protect the LAVATUBE from being damaged.
  • Reverse Battery Protection – Protects the device in case you put the battery in the device backwards
  • Battery Monitoring/Over-Discharge Protection – The device will monitor the battery voltage and automatically turn off when the battery is discharged, preventing damage to the battery by overly depleting it.
  • Battery Voltage Meter. The LAVATUBE has a voltage meter built in, simply press the red power button 7 times and it will display the voltage of the battery for a few seconds. This way you can monitor the power left in the battery before it needs to be recharged. 18650 batteries provide 4.2v at peak charge and over the life of the battery that voltage will decrease to about 3.3v level before needing to be recharged.  This will help you monitor the life cycle of the battery. The LCD screen will flash when the battery needs to be recharged, and will stop powering the device.
  • Amperage Limiting to 2.5 amps – The device should monitor and shut itself off if it detects any excessive over-current conditions.
  • Vent hole on the bottom of the device for added safety

The LAVATUBE Kit Includes:

  • (1) Black LAVATUBE
  • (1) Black cushioned LAVATUBE carry case
  • (1) AW IMR High Drain 18650 rechargeable LiMN battery
  • (1) XTAR WP2 II multi-charger
  • (1) Black Swirl Acrylic Drip Tip
  • (1) 3.0 ohm High Resistance LAVATUBE Atomizer

*Special LAVATUBE Warranty Information:

  • The LAVATUBE unit will include a 1 Year Limited Warranty against any manufacturing defects from the date of purchase.  We only recommend that you use the AW IMR High Drain 18650 LiMN Rechargeable Batteries that we sell.  However, feel free to use any 510 threaded atomizer you may have as long as it has a resistance rating of atleast 1.5 ohm.  For the best performance, we strongly recommend an atomizer with 3.0 ohm of resistance or greater to enjoy the full range of voltage settings the LAVATUBE offers.
  • The AW IMR High Drain 18650 LiMN Rechargeable Batteries will be warrantied for 90 days from the date of purchase.  Please make sure to fully charge your batteries in-between use and to follow safe storage practices when they are not being used.

Warning: This device has been tested and should only to be used with Authentic "AW IMR 18650 1600mah batteries". For safety reasons, please do not use this product with any other batteries sold by other vendors.

    Review by Tyleron 1/14/13
    I purchased a Chrome LavaTube starter kit from Volcano in November 2012. I have had absolutely no issues whatsoever with the product. It has performed exceptionally well, reliably.

    I found out on my own by fidgeting with my LavaTube, that it has an atomizer/cartomizer ohm tester built in!!!
    Click the fire button (five) times and the lcd gives a readout of the ohm resistance for the coil you are using. I don't know why Volcano doesn't advertise this as a feature on the unit, as this became a selling point for the product that I was previously completely unaware of. There are other E-Cig 'Mods' out there going for double the price point as the LavaTube Chrome, the select differences between the two including the Ohm tester.

    To me this is a very useful feature, as I have begun getting into the world of Rebuild-able atomizers, and it makes perfection my coils that much easier.

    If you want an excellent E-cig that will deliver solid vape and long battery life (6-8hrs constant) THIS IS THE UNIT FOR YOU

    My first e-cig vaporizer! Absolutely mind blowing clouds with titan durability. I purchased the chrome model, and have had no problems with the machine whatsoever. Definately made for a true, honest, and real state of smoking experience. The battery goes and goes just like the 7ml tube tank! No hassle and built solid, even for a clutz like me! I want to get V2.0 soon, cause the lanyard will be an extra plus to carry it when im on the move. Hands down the best deal on the out there on the market people! I am so glad I did the research and chose Volcano for my first e-cig experience. Thank You Volcano Brigade!! So, set yourself free with Volcano. This is best thing I have done for myself in a long time..

    Review by Byronon 12/10/12
    Wanted to come back and do another review after owning the LavaTube for a while now. I bought mine in July of 2012 and in September I had to send it back due to the screen starting to go out, the Chrome had wore off the button and occasionally would not fire when I pressed the button. Volcano did honor their warranty and replaced my LavaTube. To this day I haven't had any issues. It has fired everytime I have wanted a hit and the finish is holding up as good as day 1 and I do find that very suprising being that I use this daily at home and on the go! Thanks Volcano for such a great product. I can't wait to get my hands on the Version 2!!!

    Chrome = AMAZING
    Review by Joeon 11/29/12
    I purchased a Chrome LT at the store in las vegas and it is simply amazing, some of my vaping friends who own far more expensive VV mods love the LT and wish they had found them before purchasing their provari's for the simple price point and i have found the CS at volcano simply amazing... thanks for the GREAT product at reasonable prices.

    Review by Lukeon 9/4/12
    Just got my kit today with a tube tank and some tobacco flavoring. I have tried many other E-cig companies and nothing comes close to this amazing product. With the ability to change the voltage you can get that perfect hit that suits you. I will never go back to any of the other companies I have tried.
  • Awesome
    Review by JRon 7/27/12
    Best variable volt I have used! I waited two weeks to write this. I can tell you it is a fantastic durable device. If you haven't used a variable vap device you are missing out big time. The reason for this is that certain flavors are best at different volts....i.e. sweet tart is best at 3.4 while menthol is outstanding at 4.2.

    Buy this product and get the chrome version; it is way worth the upgrade cost. It has a more solid feel and looks great.

  • like this kit
    Review by lualon 7/8/12
    can i have it
  • Weird and wonderful!
    Review by Stewarton 7/4/12
    This is absolutely amazing. Except for the fact that it is huge and heavy, you would not need anything else. The chrome model is amazing but with the 7 ML Tube Tank, you definitively cannot take it out in the street and it is really a hassle to move around with. It looks like a weapon, a laser gun or a medical device. Maybe the black or silver is more subdued but I think the chrome is the ultimate and for me it was worth the extra bucks. But also if someone knows what it is, it is the coolest ultra high tech vaping device on the planet and you just show the world how ridiculously old fashioned and dumb tobacco smoking is. This is the coolest of the cool.

    If you move around a lot you should also get the Inferno, which is also a bit big but not so brash and you can hang it on your neck with a lanyard. You will however miss out on the variable voltage which is the point of the Lavatube. Also, buy an extra battery or two although it should last a whole day, but maybe not a day and night if you vape a lot.
  • A Must For Vaping
    Review by Aaronon 6/19/12
    Just received my Lavetube with drip kit today, and I must say what a great device this is! Being able to adjust the voltage has made dripping so tasty. Also the ability to just put on a tank or carto and find the spot where the flavor just explodes in your mouth is fantastic. Thanks for such a great product!
  • finally!
    Review by Benon 6/18/12
    After one year of vaping using ego's and other products i took the leap to variable voltage... I love it, I can't wait to try more flavors, but the control is amazing. Get a tube tank it makes it so simple to vape all day. The battery life is great, and all the products are solid in manufacturing. Shipping was super fast. I am still a novice dripper but the improvement using the VV is enough for now.


    No real cigs in over a year :)
  • Best purchase ever!!
    Review by Sylvieon 6/12/12
    After 3 years, finally found a device that i trully love.. Ive only used 510 cartos on it so far and my sweet juices are tasting so great at 4.8v that not sure im going to bother using my tanks or clearomizers on it any time soon.. Device is a liitle large/heavy for us small handed girls but i love it anyways.. Battery last quite a long time (going on 2 days) .Chrome one comes with a chrome drip tip.. Doesnt come with instruction so be sure to jot down the button functions listed here... Worth every penny and doubt anyone will regret purchasing it!! PS: fastest purchase i have ever received, bought on a friday night and received my lavatube monday afternoon (from hawaii to MD) was totally surprised!

    Ok, so I'm decked out in my new rig, a chrome Lavatube, Tubetank, 30 ml of juice and am in vaping heaven. The LavaTube is solid, the Tubetank works great, and the juice is quality. Already ordered another 18650 bat, more juice, and am very pleased with everything. Thanks for putting me into a great vv kit for a reasonable price. I will be back for supplies as needed. Great job!

    Review by AWESOMEon 6/6/12
    I used to smoke 2 1/2 packs a day and have been tobacco free for 3 weeks. I never thought I would put down regular cigs. This actually works. I have had a bad reaction to Mauna Dew but have been using Red Hot Lava and Chocanilla Haze without incident. Be careful not to overuse because this will increase your nicotine addiction tremendously. I can't even smoke regular cigs now. I have ran out of fluid and believe me it is not fun going through the withdrawals. I am going to have to stock up on juices and another back up device. Can't be without it now.

    Review by Sandyon 5/29/12
    I finally bought the lavatube. It works great. I get clouds of vapor. I love my 5.2V. Sometimes I go to 6V. This thing works great. It makes my juice taste better. A must have for all vapor lovers.
  • Great buy--Do it!
    Review by JAMESon 5/25/12
    I swear I was not put up to this...

    I have been vaping for 6 months now and it was going okay, but then I came across the Lavatube. This thing is fantastic! You definitely must combine it with the TubeTank. I got the 4ml, but should have gotten the larger, I think 7ml? I was hesitant to spend the money on a high end rig like this, but I am very pleased I did. V E R Y pleased. Freaking fantastic, nothing more needs be said. You will not regret this purchase.
  • Definitely Go Chrome
    Review by Steveon 5/23/12
    Just received my chrome Lavatube kit. It's absolutely awesome. It looks a bit like a small light saber :).

    I went from an eGo 3.7 volt to this vari-volt Lavatube... the difference is like night-and-day. My eGo is great. I get great vapes off of it, but since it's a tad underpowered (for someone who has smoked 1-2 packs a day) the higher voltage settings really make the vape feel more like a real analog cig.

    - Higher volume of vape clouds.

    - Don't need to take as long of a drag to get a good vape.

    - Throat hits tend to be more realistic and hotter at higher voltages.

    - Well positioned button (if you've used the eGo it's in roughly the same place... just a bigger device overall)

    - It is easier to make stand vertically… the eGo tends to fall over very easily due to it's lighter weight and smaller base. The Lavatube is far more stable.

    Overall, WELL worth it! Thanks!
  • Chrome Lavatube
    Review by Bluesmokeon 5/12/12
    Like most folks, this is my first Mod-style PV and I started out with 'Egos'. I picked up the Lavatube Kit along with the Tube Tank (first tank as well for me), pre-filled cartomizers, and of course it came with the atomizer/drip-tip with the Kit.

    Tested the device with pre-filled cartomizers for starters: Wow... the consistency is amazing. Lots of vapor with good 'throat hit'. I don't have a tip connector for cartomizers yet and the cartos do get hot after 5 hits or so (3.7v)... Not sure if this is normal but I ended-up ordering a tip just yesterday. Also, I need to experiment with other cartos but the ones I received ended up not working/tasting like it should relatively quickly from what I expected. After 40 or so hits, they just started to taste burnt, and the crackling sound you usually hear was not always there. Either way I think I just need to test out other cartos and make sure it's high resistance.

    w/Lava Tube: My first attempt was 'ok'. I think my initial set-up was not 100% correct but even then, it was still good. However, it was not consistent and other newbies like me might experience the same thing. Make sure you line everything up correctly and after I did this my 2nd time around... HoRy sHmokes (vapor in this case). A-mazing... At 3.7v the Lavatube/Tube Tank combo is by far RIDICULOUS... Once you figure this out and work out the kinks when you set up the tank, the Lavatube just performs perfectly, all day long.

    Atomizer/Drip Tip: Unfortunately the one I received was DOA and I'm working on getting a replacement. Will update as soon as I try that out. I can imagine it's just as good as the other methods...

    Conclusion: Being my first mod, this Chrome Lavatube works amazingly well. The construction is solid, and I do like the 'heavy' feel even though it really doesn't feel heavy IMHO. I thought it was going to be a lot bigger as it is hard to judge from pictures/online reviewers but it is just right.

    The variable voltage works perfect! I will probably stay away from LR cartos as suggested by many folks and that doesn't bother me whatsoever.

    Fire button is solid, I like how it clicks and you know it's firing, especially when you hear the e-juice being vaped (crackling noise). I haven't had issues with buttons sticking.

    I've done my research and this is the product I chose after long hours looking at youtube videos and online reviews. It is at a good price point and is a high-quality product as far as I can tell. Great mod to pick-up for those looking to upgrade from standard ego-styled PV's. I highly recommend the Chrome version to anyone currently interested in a Lavatube especially with the included 1-year warranty from Volcano.
  • Chrome FTW
    Review by Shifty50on 5/6/12
    The chrome is definatly an upgrade from the original lava tube with its full metal construction and conector that can take any ego device atomizor or tank its the best one yet
  • The Real McCoy.
    Review by Tonyaon 5/5/12
    I got the Chrome model. This seems like a really well made device; very heavy and very sturdy. My 510 connection is perfectly straight. The battery piece fits perfectly. All the buttons work right. No problems at all. Also, the description says that the kit comes with one battery, well mine showed up with two. I'm not sure if that was a mistake, or perhaps the description is wrong. Either way it was a pleasant surprise.

    As for performance, this is my first variable voltage mod. I'd only used the Volcano and Magma batteries before. I've got to say, this thing blows me out of the water, especially at high volts. Surpassed my expectations.

    This is a really good, solid product for the money. I'm not gong to say that it's on par with the most expensive, luxery VV mods, but for the money vs performance, The Lava Tube is easily the best VV deal out there.

    Simply, this mod rocks, buy it.
  • Best Yet
    Review by Danielon 5/3/12
    I have had everything from an L88M (Volcano) 510 (Magma) and EGO-T (Inferno Tank-O kit), none of them even compare to my chrom Lavatube, and I have only had the Lavatube since this morning. The hit is amazing, the weight is nice for its size (its huge in ratio to the inferno). Its hit is better than ANY ecig or analog I have ever had even from cigars. Only thing I can say is depending on the flavor (dripped a little and have 2 tube tanks, as well as my Tank-Os all with different flavors) the voltage may need to be dropped (4-4.5V worked best for me, though I prefer the hit from 5.5-6V) due to the device making it taste burnt (mostly in Pear-a-dice for me). All in all this is the #1 best device I have found on the market, and my wife is begging me to get her one ASAP. Will be getting another one very soon. :)
    Thanks for this beautiful device.
  • Advice for the Sticking Button Issue
    Review by Kevinon 4/22/12
    My new LavaTube arrived and the button to energize atomizer would consistently get stuck down. Customer service had me remove battery and engage button repeatedly. It got a little better, but still would stick every 10-15 times. Upon reflecting on the issue, I imagine that the reason using the button helps is due to the oils on your skin lubricating the button mechanism. With that in mind, I added one small drop of WD-40 to the button. That was two days ago. The button has not stuck down again, not even once. Just a helpful hint to everyone else experiencing this problem (as I have noticed several others in the reviews).
  • Awesome!
    Review by Brianon 4/18/12
    I would have to retract my mixed feeling review. This thing is starting to take over as my main vapeing tool. I just had a bad cart in my tank and the battery life is getting better with use. It does have a vent hole that goes through and I thought my threads were crooked but found out it was my tanks fault not sitting just right. Anwho, this is a must buy! Get you one!
  • The Best Vape of All!!!
    Review by Zacon 3/16/12
    Just got my Lava Tube today, it is the smoothest vape ever!!! 3.7 is my favorite setting for the 3.0 atty. Clouds and clouds of vapor come out. A couple of things...the battery is charged when it comes, and you put the male end in first. (No instructions come with it) Get the whole kit. If you like James Bond type gadgets, you will fall in love immediately just like me!!! Makes Bonzai Banana taste GREAT!!

  • No turning back
    Review by Dougon 2/19/12
    The Lava Tube is by far above and beyond what I had expected. I went from smoking 3 to 3 1/2 pack of cigarettes a day down to no cigarettes a day on my first tank. I use 36mg juice and by being able to adjust the voltage makes the Lava Tube the most amazing ecig i have ever tried. I have used the Ego-T with many adaptations of cartomizers and add-ons. I would suggest to anyone who asks to go with the Lava Tube. Save your money on purchasing other brands. This is the one. Lava Tube is TOP OF THE LINE. I work in the petroleum industry and drive for a living. Trust me when I say you will not be disappointed. WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT.
  • The Best!
    Review by Mitchellon 2/8/12
    I have owned the Magma and the inferno.. Both where amazing ecig's. But by far this is the best ecig I have ever owned in my life! The flavor is amazing and the ability to control the voltage is a huge plus. If you get this then I recommend the tube tank for sure. The only thing that would help is a instruction paper on how to set it up, but i found plenty on youtube. I feel like I get my nicotine with this better than ever. A++
  • Great Mod, Get One!
    Review by Ed (RIVapor)on 1/30/12
    Like all the other reviewers mentioned, this is a great mod. I've had mine for 2 days and haven't put it down. My Provari might be getting jealous. It's a little lighter than the Provari and I like the fire button better. It's also simpler to change the voltage. I've been vaping for a year and this is the best purchase yet. Thanks Volcano! Amazing Product, now Order one!
  • Works great
    Review by Jacobon 1/26/12
    Works great. The only issue I have with it is the activation button constantly likes to stick...I worry that I'll burn out an atomizer if I'm not careful. I won't let my friends use it for this reason.

    I thought it'd be a little heavier from the pictures but it's pretty lightweight. Very comfortable to hold. I've been preferring around 4 volts throughout the day, mornings I prefer it a little lower at around 3.6-3.8 but I'm still getting my preferences set.

    It shipped amazingly fast, it was in the hands of FedEx the day I placed the order and I've had it for 2 days now.

    9/10 just fix the activation button in the next version unless it's just my device. Another cool idea I had was that to change the voltage you could make the top "wheel" by where the atomizer screws in a slipwheel to turn to change the voltage, it's something apple would likely do if they made eciggs.
  • Love this thing
    Review by Johnon 1/25/12
    I recieved my LT two days ago and havent been able to put it down. This is my first PV but i have not found it difficult to use at all. Also great i havent even been tempted to smoke an analog since i got it. Large clouds, great taste, and love the button, a nice click when i press it. My friend thats been a long time vaper tried it today and loved it. Said he will probably order one tonite! Recommend for sure! Oh and super fast shipping, ordered 7am saturday, fedex guy at my door 9am monday
  • The LT is Vapetastic!
    Review by Katja aka WomanOfHearton 1/21/12
    I got my LT back in December when they were first released. Here it is, almost the end of January and I haven't even touched my other mods. This thing rocks and it's my favorite mod! I thought I would never own a VV until this baby came out. Sure, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the ProVari, but this is STILL one helluva great entry level mod. I can highly recommend this to anyone looking at getting a VV.
  • Awesomeness!
    Review by Charleson 1/7/12
    Received mine yesterday and haven't put it down. I'm using it with the 7ml tubetank on it and just ordered the 4ml tubetank as well. Great battery life...still on the first charge after 30+ hours of constant use. I love the variable voltage, I can always tune in to the sweet spot for a perfect vape. I turn it up a little after a meal when I want a stronger throat hit, and lower it in the morning when I want it softer and smoother. I'll be ordering another color very soon. Easy to fill, adjust and use. EXTREMELY satisfied and highly recommended for anyone that wants complete control over their vaping experience.
  • i love my tube
    Review by roberton 1/6/12
    i have purchased many kits in the past including 5 v diy mods. this unit surpasses them. its a great device that does exactly what it states. i have no problems changing volts on the fly and with my tube tank it runs all day and all night long...it is a little wider than i was used to but it actually makes it easier for me to hold. now for the button. i love the vape button. on other units it really ended up hurting me, but with my tube i am vaping all day with out nintendo thumb... only con is i noticed like others have posted that the 510 connecter is placed slightly crooked. do i like that. no is it a big enough concern that i will return it or be dissatisfied with purchase no. i see it as purely cosmetic and doesnt affect my tank performance at all... i would like to note it so future qa will correct this assembly error i would like to see a perfect product. i believe i am as happy with this product as a provari.

    thanks volcano team.

    Review by ryan on 12/30/11
    I have had my lava tube for 3 days now, and absolutely love it!!! I don't think I will need to buy any more mods because this one is perfect for me and suits my needs amazingly!!! If you are into e cigs but don't like the normal cig looking vape, this is the best pv your money can buy in my opinion :) I have been stupid and wasted my money on other pv's and wish that I had just got this one first, oh well trial and error I always say. So if you don't buy this one I believe strongly that you will be wasting your money and will come to this one over time lol HAPPY NEW YEAR ( mine is going to be very happy with my new lava tube)
  • Game Changing Device
    Review by Solarixon 12/28/11
    This is my first "Mod style" device and it was worth the wait to get it from Volcano (I got in on the pre-order). Since I moved away from analogs in Feb 2011, I have been enjoying every device I have purchased from Volcano, and this is no exception.

    The massive battery life, and ability to dial in my voltage to control vapor production has been amazing. I find that no matter which atomizer system I try out, I always end up going with a bridged atty and dripping (Carts on the OG Volcano, Tanks on the Inferno, Tube Tank on the LavaTube)

    On the LT, I actually prefer the Magma atty's but have to remember to keep it very wet.

    The mod itself is top quality and built solid. My only complaint is that the firing button works about 95% of the time. No biggie IMHO as if I don't feel it producing vapor, I just let off, retry and it fires as it should.

    You will not find a device of this quality anywhere near this price point from someone else. Volcano does it again and it is a home run.
  • Awesome device 5million stars

    Review by Michaelon 12/21/11
    I had to have this PV. I have two others, they are great. You have to change batts to change voltage though. Changing voltage with the ease of pushing buttons is the way to go. There are others that you can turn a wheel but they do not a have a wide variance of voltage. This one is state of the art, and does not have that high price tag.

    Review by HARUon 12/18/11
    I currently own the Magma and Inferno. They both are great. Now the wait has paid off, I now have the LavaTube which is absolutely awesome. I also have the tube tanks that make it more appealing. Overall, I love it. The best ecig I got, nice design and lightweight device.
  • Works as expected
    Review by Chrison 12/18/11
    Works great, decent build quality, and no issues within the first 24 hours.

    The atomizer that comes with the kit is actually pretty nice. When I received the package, I instantly debridged the atomizer and get loads of flavor/TH. The atomizer reads 3 ohms, so it's good for the whole range of the LavaTube. My only complaint was mine had what appeared to be scratches on the unit and some dust under the LCD cover, but a quick cleaning with some polishing compound and an air compressor turned it into a perfect looking unit.

    The batteries are indeed genuine AW IMR's and work great.

    I can't wait to see what this thing will do with the LT atty once my drip shield comes in.
  • must have...
    Review by danteoftheinfernoon 12/12/11
    This product is excellent. My only real complaint is that i didn't have this sooner. It is really user friendly, looks sexy, long battery life. It is much smaller than i imagined it to be when i first saw the pictures. I am constantly chain vaping this at home with a 7ml tubetank on it. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who has a bit of experience.
  • This will change the way you vape!!!
    Review by Shadoon 12/12/11
    The LT is a great device..I have several right now and will be getting a few more when more colors are available.
    I have other mods, and this has pretty much become my main go to gear for quite some time.
    It is very easy to use, is light weight, looks great, works as it supposed to.
    Variable volt vaping is the new Vapolicious!!! and is a permanent part of the Vape Train and Shado Zen!!! ;-)
