Did this video help you?

m35a2lover: Can you please make a video on how you take measurements on devices with the oscilloscope ?

Anthony Tanchak: I have the Lavatube v2.5, which updates the V2.0 to VW to go along with the VV. Everything else about the device is the same (materials, screen, shape, etc). My only gripe with teh device, and Phil had this as a thumbs down in this video, is the 510 connection. My wife is on her 3rd Lavatube, and I am on my 4th. The fist 2 lavatubes we had, both developed problems with teh 510 connection. They worked fine out of the box and when the fist devcie was placed on it, however, for whatever reason, teh 510 would fail when a different device was screwed onto it. For instance, I put my Kayfun on the device first. Than, I replaced teh Kayfun with an Aspire BDC Vivi Nova clearo, an dthe 510 connection would not read the Aspire (when checking the resistance, the Lavatube displayed 9.9 ohms, meaning no device was found). I had to back off teh aspire tank a 1/4-1/2 turn in order for the Lavatube to read the resistance and allow me to vape. Then, I took off teh aspire and replaced it with the Kayfun, and the exact thing woudl happen with the kayfun. In fact, afer a few days, the Lavatube stopped reading all devices, no matter how much I backed each devce off. When I retruned it to Volcano E-Cigs, they stated that the insulator became damaged. This happened to a total of 4 devices (2 w/ the wife, and 2 w/ me). The third ones we received work fine. Not sure if it was a known problem and they fixed it on all of teh Lavatubes or not, but the 510 problem is no longer there for the most part (I will occasionally get th issue again when using a 510/ego adapter for my evod clearo.) Volcano Cigs also recomended ONLY using thier cart tanks with the Lavatube as their cartos' 510 connections are made to be the same legth as teh depth of the device's 510 connection. Using any other 510 devcie is not recommended and can void the warranty!! The 3rd one I recieved had to go back due to the threading "siezing" and I was unable to uncrew the device to change the battery. Volcano Cigs stated that the threading issue can happen especially if the threads are not cleaned regularly (being that the device is aluminium and not SS, the threads are "softer" and can degrade slightly over time especially if dirty.) Volcano Cigs also recomended using a good lubricant on the threads to help with thier lifespan as well. All in all, a good device, onc ethe issues were cleared up. I do, however, gice Volcano Cigs a HUGE thumbs up for thier custimer service. They replaced all my Lavatube v2.5's with no issues, and I received a new one in a little over a week after sending my faulty ones back. Their customer service reps were knowledgeable and friendly and answered all my emails within 24 hours.

method978: Great great review tactics and presented with engineering ethic and moral reasoning tactics directed towards the consumer. Your also somber, unlike Grimm, and various others. Thus, more creditablity, great job. Look forward to your newest reviews...:)

Tyler Portik: Phil is Definantly the most influential vaper on the web, looking to get a v2.5 but this review showed all I needed to k ow hope they're as accurate with wattage as they're voltage because I'm going to get one this week. 

nyjeterss: going to review the 2.5 version anytime soon!!!!?????

chris badtrekkie: awesome mod

Kaarle Nurmi: A big fast mouse cursor running across the screen a few times at 02:03 ;)

PJo336: Really wish they had a recessed threading, that sucks its not for my iclear 16s

mattallmon88: Nurolizer 

gonzovaporpell: Always wanted to snag one of these but always ended up buying another Provari or a new limited mech or genny. Usually Provari lol. Just love em but gotta have a good mech (or few) around when you love gennys!!!

pbusardo: Cool!! Thanks Blue ;-)

Könä Myllykoskihardcore: Still have the lava v1 on use. When i go to a bar or to see/play a gig i take that v1 with me.

Chris Ising: The screen looks the same as the vamo. The vamo is 50 bucks and way smaller. Has a couple different battery configs too. Also it's variable wattage so I am lost on why anyone would buy this. I would love to see some numbers on a vamo to see if it is accurate tho.

mikesha77: I have a ego 1100.

pbusardo: :-)

natedoggcata: I am absolutely DONE with all Volcano products. Their quality has dropped significantly in the last year

Dave Arsenault: Great review. Is there any chance you can look at the "Lava Fire" from Beautiful e Cigar? It's a fully mechanical mod that I've been using for about 2 weeks now. Great device that takes 18650, 2x 18350, or if you take the extension off, a single 18350. I love it, and its a shame more folks don't know about it. I know the vapor hut carries it, but there's likely others as well.

pbusardo: I reserve the right to comment until I'm ready with the review. :-)

JayH7745: I'm wondering if they will eventually put a recessed connection on these? Like you said, it's really weird that they would go back-wards and make the version 2 with a standard 510 connection on top. Makes no sense! These look way better than the previous version. They have made them more accurate on the voltage output. They improved the readability of the display. They have done away with the cheap end cap. But now they have a 510 connection and you need an adapter to use eGo type clearomizers??

TheDerek666: Provari Killer..... I would like to see it...

pbusardo: Biggest I've seen is a dual coil atty that I'll be taking a look at soon. There are certainly leaps and bounds in the RBA category!!

pbusardo: Thanks!

pbusardo: Ha! Thanks and Merry Christmas to you as well! All valid points. Sorry about spending your money! :-)

Christian Glanville: I can see this selling well in the USA , to the average american size = luxury and this thing is big ( also reflect on cars and burgers , its kinda obvious ) as for the rest of the world I'm not so sure . Great review as always

pbusardo: Best "tank" what kind of tank? Carto or ce style?

ColdTurkey G: hmmmmm it seems this device uses smoktech components.

pbusardo: Thanks!

jnaglipay: Great review! I know you've been using the evic and I was wondering, lavatube or evic? I'm looking to purchase a new vv mod and size really isn't a factor. Which do you prefer out of the two?

pbusardo: Thanks very much!!

Bluesrains: You sure do alot of work to bring us these reviews! I appreciate it alot Phil. I enjoy your reviews as you dont leave anything uncovered! This is a HUGE help with making a buying choice. Well, Im a girl and its Big Size is ok with me. I figure it wont tip over so easy. Now all I have to do is wait forever to get one! Seems theyre going like hotcakes!

Perry Figueroa: Great review as always Phil. Thanks for this one, was waiting for it. Got one on order thanks to your insights. Appreciate your help.

Danielle Casey: Nice festive decorations Phil!

Cameron Cutlery: 38?

pbusardo: VAMO is up next. Using it now.

Kangiten: PureVape.com supply them. They are a UK bases supplier

edoqrca: As I foresaw... :)

Raj Rohila: The large and the almost oversizeness of the LT2 makes it the solid well built device that it is. I love my LT2 and its accuracy as a vv device. I recommend it to all my friends and acquaintances that already vape!

BluMtnVapor: Yet again another great review..thanks for having fun and helping us all stay off the anologs, was gonna say the real deal but...vp is now "The Real Deal"

Derek J Holak: Would you happen to know where else I can purchase a Lavatube other than VocanoEcigs? The only colors they have to offer are gold, pink and red. I am wanting a black one.

MattB0922: Nice review as usual. I too am wondering about the Christmas tree. Maybe something to do with the holidays. Santa trying to hack in? :)

pbusardo: It's bigger. :-)

Steven Sawyer: Nice looking device, great review.

pbusardo: Thanks!

MSP Pando: Do you go around to every Lavatube review and cut & paste the same thing about Volcano eCigs and Lavatube? You've been busy.

pbusardo: Thanks!! The Vamo is next on my list. Using it now actually. The eVic will be hot so I'll begin the evaluation as soon as I get it.

FloppyHares: Thanks for the review, P, comprehensive, as always! I was eager to see the LT2 appear in the Volcano store until someone pointed out the Vamo. App. it's going to be your next review. I was sold on the low cost vs. var. volt. AND var. watt., dual setup (18650/18350), rel. good build comp. to price and good performance. (All according to other reviews.) I was about to order it...until I saw the eVic!! Wow! You have one in the mail, you say?: Really looking forward to that review!!!

umidk10000: hows the draw?

Matthew Duplessis: Maybe now people can stop ranking on Volcano :P Great review Phil-abuster ;) Nice fair and in depth review as always. Your shows are what O'Reilly Factor should be. unbiased, fair shake, honest view point ;)

samik83: Too bad they messed up with the size and no drip well. Otherwise would be the perfect device

pbusardo: Thanks!
