How to Use your LAVATUBE v2.5:

How it works

The new Lavatube VW now has a power setting as well as two types of voltage settings (average Volts and RMS Volts). The new settings are from 3 to 15 Watts, and two variable voltage settings from 3 to 6 Volts.

We advise you to use the VW mode (variable wattage, also known as variable power), as this gives the best results:

  • It gives a very smooth, solid and reliable vape that automatically adjusts the power to your preferred level even if you change the atomiser or cartomizer.
  • There is no need to adjust anything once you have set your preferred power level.
  • You can change the head (atomiser, carto, clearo) and even if it has a different resistance, the vape will remain constant.

 

Turning on

When you switch the device on, it starts up in VW mode. We advise you stay in this mode as it provides the best results.

Change the power setting by using the small [-] and [+] buttons. Lower it to 6 Watts at first and see how you like this setting on the Lavatube.

Then raise the power to your preferred 'sweet spot'. The sweet spot is the point at which the vape is perfect, for you, with the head you are using (which could be an atomiser, carto, tank carto, or clearo - for example), at whatever resistance the head is, with whatever e-liquid you are using, and whatever your personal method of inhaling. There are many variables here, and these will also include how exactly you use the device - for example the length of your draw - and the Lavatube VW maintains the perfect setting for you once you have set it. Just leave it at that power setting.

The Lavatube VW will keep that power setting no matter what head you attach, even if their resistance varies considerably. The end result should be the same, no matter what atomiser, carto or clearo you are using. You might want to raise or lower the setting if you change your e-liquid though: Red Hot Lava hits harder than Strawberry!

Before: you had to raise or lower the voltage every time you fitted a new atomiser or carto. Because of that, it helped to know what the atomiser resistance was.

Now: no need to touch or check anything once the power has been set to your favourite spot. Job done!

VV settings

You can also try the variable voltage settings. This is mainly of use to inform you of the voltage levels required to get your preferred power setting - there is no performance or other gain, and the settings need to be changed if you fit another head. NB: we advise that VW is the superior setting.

Button settings

To switch the unit on or off, click the main, large button five or six times rapidly. If at first it doesn’t take, keep trying.

To operate the unit, hold the large button down. The average time used is 3 to 6 seconds. Most people draw into the mouth, hold the vapour there for a second, then inhale if desired. When using an e-cigarette this is a better draw method than inhaling direct to the lungs. Note that the device can be used like a cigar if desired: just draw into the mouth, enjoy the flavor but don't inhale, then breathe out.

To increase the power, click the small [+] button (at top right) as needed. The bright blue/white LED display shows the power in Watts, for example 9.5 Watts.

To reduce the power, click the small [-] button (at top left) as needed. Power is reduced 0.5 of a Watt per click.

To see the battery voltage (in Volts), hold the small [-] button down. For maximum battery life we recommend you recharge the battery when the voltage has fallen to 3.5 Volts. The device will automatically cut out, though, before the battery can be damaged. If the battery falls too low, the device cuts out and the display reads ‘LO’.

To see the atomiser resistance (in Ohms), hold the small [+] button down.

 

Changing to VV mode

To change to VV mode (variable voltage), hold both the [-] and [+] buttons down for about 10 seconds until the display changes to 3v (3 Volts).

Raise or lower the voltage by 0.1v per click using the [+] or [-] buttons.The range is 3v to 6v.

People generally use about 3.5v for a 1.5 Ohm head; 4.5v for a 2.5 Ohm head; 5v for a 3 Ohm head; but it depends on the e-liquid in use together with personal taste. The lower the voltage, the cooler the vape, with less vapour volume. The higher the voltage, the warmer the vape and vapour production is greater; but the vape does get drier.

 

Holding the [-] and [+] buttons changes between VW and VV modes.

 

Changing between V and Vrms

Hold down either the [-] or the [+] button for about 20 seconds. The mode changes between No1 and No2.

#1 is average voltage (Vav), which is the regular setting for VV devices. Most VV devices use this mode as standard.

#2 is RMS voltage (Vrms), which is a more accurate way of measuring voltage when the waveform is not constant.

 

This is the case in VV devices, because instead of a constant DC voltage as in a single-voltage device (basically a straight line waveform although there may be some ripple if the device is electronic, not just a plain battery), the voltage is pulsed to create a stepped waveform, which cannot be measured correctly by the Vav method (just 'plain Volts'). The RMS method allows a more accurate measurement since it takes a value which is a percentage of the peaks in the waveform. Thus, Vrms gives a more accurate picture of the true DC voltage.

 

We recommend that the two VV modes are used simply for interest value, as the best vape and the least hassle is provided by the VW mode: set and forget!

Technical Specifications:

Selectable Wattage Range: 3w to 15w in 0.5w increments
Selectable Voltage Range: 3v to 6v in 0.1v increments
Power / Activation Button: Click five times rapidly to power the device on/off; Hold the button down to activate.
+ Button: Press to increase wattage/voltage
- Button: Press to decrease wattage/voltage
2 Power Modes: The device can be set to either Average Voltage, or vRMS.
Auto Shutoff: If the activation button is held down for 12 seconds or longer, the LAVATUBE will shut itself off until the button is released to prevent overheating.
Short Circuit/Atomizer Protection: The LAVATUBE can recognize an atomizer with too low a resistance for the current voltage setting and will drop the voltage/wattage to a low enough setting 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 display "LO" on the display and turn off when the battery is discharged, preventing damage to the battery and the device by over depletion.
Battery Voltage Meter: The LAVATUBE has a voltage meter built in for you to monitor the power left in the battery. (18650 batteries provide 4.2v at peak charge and over the life of the battery that voltage will decrease to c. 3.2v before needing to be recharged) This will help you monitor the life cycle of the battery.
Atomizer Ohm Meter: The LAVATUBE has an atomizer Ohm meter built in.  It will display the resistance of the atomizer/cartomizer connected to the device. 
Amperage Limiting: 3 amps – The device should monitor and shut itself off if it detects any excessive over-current conditions.
Vent holes: 2 Vent holes on the bottom of the device for added safety

Was VERY pessimistic Review by Ripper
Overall rating
Been smoking for over 20 years and have tried using the disposable e-lites etc. They helped relieve the additction a little, but were nothing close to the real thing. I decided to treat myself to a good quality vape and as luck would have it i purchased a Lava tube 2.5. It was a little tricky to understand how the thing worked, but after a few hours of reading and watching instructional videos I got the product up and running. I have not smoked traditional ciggies since this glorious moment in time. Cannot recommend this product enough. (Posted on 03/07/2014)
BOOM - great vape got me off the cigarettes Review by jamie
Overall rating
I use this as my main vaporiser its a great piece of kit, if you are serious about vaping then look no further, it produces a good strong vape and a great throat hit depending on which voltage/wattage you use, I am a very heavy vaper and the battery lasts about 24 hours. The only downside ( I say downside it does not put me off) is that the cartomizers need to be well primed first and as I am quite a heavy vaper they last me between 2-3 days before feeling a bit clogged but still useable, however I believe that volcano are going to be adding the inferno style BCT take which is amazing and I cannot wait to get my hands on one.

INFERNO Starter Kit
First Timer - Review by Matthew

I bought the INFERNO starter kit as my first venture onto electronic cigarette. Have been using it for a few days now and haven't touched a real one. The product is really good quality and everything you need to get going is included. I opted for the extra strong e-juice and it delivers a good hit of nicotine without the smell of normal cigarettes. I plan to gradually lower the strength over time. All in all good value for money and the tutorial videos are useful too. Thoroughly recommended. (Posted on 14/07/2014)

This flavour is just the best and far better than any of its rivals out there, try it you won't be disappointed (Posted on 09/08/2014)

INFERNO Starter Kit
Brilliant - Review by Ray

I've had this for about a week now and it certainly holds up to its name.I've tried another make of e-cig before the inferno and I wasn't getting a very good hit with it. I read some of the reviews about the inferno and thought to myself well lets try it and I'm glad i did - more vapour and a nice hit at the back of the throat. Well it looks like its the Volcano Inferno for me .I absolutely love it .Bit pricey but well worth it. (Posted on 04/09/2014)

Bought this in July and have only just needed to order more liquids, when I'm using it I don't feel the need for a cigarette, my charger arrived broken emailed customer support replacement arrived 2 days later. Batteries are good around 16 hours use on the smaller one all round great product. To those who say it's a bit pricey I say it's priced perfectly you get what you pay for! (Posted on 05/10/2014)

Great fruity flavor will keep you coming back for more, (Posted on 05/05/2014)

brilliant product. produces a real alternative cigarette experience...best I've tried. each lasts about a week so worth the money. (Posted on 29/07/2014)

THIS FLAVOUR IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE USED ... (Posted on 25/03/2014)

Wow other strawb flavours I've tried come nowhere near this one. Not too fruity like a mild strawb shake. Vaping as I write this :-) (Posted on 03/05/2014)

quite simply amazing! came in a very pretty box with all components shinning! it works great and pulls very very well, best I have used by far. thank you volcano! (Posted on 08/07/2014)

I was very impressed when I recieved a phone call after ordering tube tank cartomisers for my 7ml tank . The gentleman in question (TONY) asked if I had looked at the BCT Tank which I had but that I was not sure if the tank innards were compatible with my tank , TONY explained that it did not , then told me to give the new tank a try and give a review on what I thought of the new BCT Tank . It arrived very quickly well packaged and as soon as it did I quickly unwrapped it and began using it . My review of this tank is that it blows the Tube Tank out of the water . It does not bend the tank off the battery when in my jeans pocket or any other pocket due to it being a threaded tank that is tightly screwed on via its base before being screwed onto the battery . The very well built coil attatched 3.5 ohm gives a very genorous blast of vape and flavourable taste . (Lavatube only) I have had a couple of tastes of burnt coil but I was caning it a bit being new and all that but it does not linger and stay there like the Tube Tank cartomisers do . To be absolutely perfect all we need now are screw on tips that are square in the middle of the tip at the threaded end in case of snapping while screwed in and a sqare tool to undo the tips that would then give us the B all and End all of all vaping machines in the WORLD ! Do I like the BCT - - - - - YES . DO I I LOVE THE BCT - - - - - - YES . THANK YOU TONY THIS IS THE BEST UPGRADE YET , PLEASE MENTION THE TIP IDEA , I KNOW IT WILL SOLIDLY WORK . (Posted on 26/11/2014)

The coils are quick and easy to change, produce great clouds of smooth vapour without burning and each one lasts me about 2-3 weeks (Posted on 16/08/2014)

LAVATUBE 2.5 Tank Kit
perfect - Review by Jay-D

this is literally a perfect mod i haven't had a single problem with it it is robust so if you drop it you'll be fine and gives an awesome vape (Posted on 26/07/2014)

I've been a 20 a day smoker for over 20 years and tried all other methods of giving up in vain. After hours of research into e-cigs I plumped for the Inferno starter kit. The build quality and ease of use is fantastic. The amount of vapour and throat hit is as good if not better than analogue's and the Inferno looks way cooler. I've not totally quit my normal brand of cigarettes yet but cut down significantly to around 5 per day and on some days none at all. Planned quit date is 1st April and with the Inferno I think I might just make it. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone and hope it will help many others like me, kick the ol' habit for good. (Posted on 13/03/2014)

Great performance; plenty of vape and easy to draw (Posted on 12/03/2014)

Wow, it's amazing how I can control how I want to vape. (Posted on 03/04/2014)

I have tried them all in search for something that was reliable and would actually get me to quit! It took a few weeks to break the habit but I'm there! Finally no more standing outside in the cold and rain! I have two of these sets, I prefer the larger battery as it lasts me a couple of days. The tank is big enough that you don't have to refill often. Happy to leave the house without a backup battery or extra juice as I know it won't fail me! Great product! Only downside is that after a while if you don't use the protective bag and like me just stick it in your handbag or pocket the paint chips off but only down to the silver does effect Usage in any way. (Posted on 29/11/2014)

Have been using Menthol Burst for nearly two years; great for mixing with other flavours. If it was not for Volcano I would still be smoking now, have not had one in 18 months. (Posted on 22/08/2014)

Love these batteries, they're great! They last ages and are an excellent price - super happy with them! (Posted on 13/02/2014)

Superb performance and at an amazing price. (Posted on 05/05/2014)

Smoked for too many years, not had a real cigarette since. Right tools for the job. (Posted on 07/07/2014)

I reviewed these before but this time I would like to review the service. I have ordered many times now from volcano and each and every time the service has been impeccable. I like to order a couple of days before I run out, yet the order always arrives before I expect it. This type of service is rare and because of it, I will never go anywhere else. Well done Volcano....! (Posted on 03/04/2014)

I was initially sceptical about e cigs but after trying a friends inferno I was pleasantly surprised. The battery life is good and seems like a solid piece of kit.. 2 Weeks in I have not had a cigarette. My inferno was a good buy.. (Posted on 21/03/2014)

very nice! (Posted on 15/10/2014)

I have been using this tobacco flavour for months and recommend it to any one who is trying to quit; I use lights 8mg and 16mg depending on how i feel - both are a great vape (Posted on 20/03/2014)

This is by far my favorite product here, with 45 of these every month (refill once) i have replaced regular smoking and still saving money! great taste great vape great throat hit! (Posted on 26/03/2014)

Like this stuff - close enough to real tobacco if you get that whiff in the street and just have to have a puff yourself. I think this is the "core" tobacco flavour, as opposed to the "pure tobacco" one, which I haven't tried. This one is rather sweet too, which I like... (Posted on 30/07/2014)

looks awesome with a silver tube tank (Posted on 29/07/2014)

I can't make up my mind on this one. Interesting flavor not as nutty as most tobacco. Keeps you coming back for more. (Posted on 05/05/2014)

Is very easy to use no need for dripping and has a great vape would recommend it to anyone! (Posted on 12/04/2014)

My favourite e-liquide. A refreshing proper pineapple flavour, I get 4 bottles at a time as I would hate to run out lol (Posted on 29/07/2014)

Proper little piece of engineering, unlike cheap models with long dangling wicks - which seem so old fashioned to me. These are state of the art and a must have. And they're shiny! (Posted on 26/06/2014)
