The Lavatube v2 is a new, completely redesigned version of Volcano’s Lavatube variable voltage mod. Version 2 has several upgrades that the original version desperately needed. I have to say, Volcano really did take into consideration what all their users were saying and acted upon them.
The aesthetics of the Lavatube v2 completely blow the original one out of the water. The Lavatube is no longer a dull, black tube with a few buttons on it. Version 2 is available in your choice of several different colored finishes including: Blue, Chrome, Gold, Gun Metal Gray, Pink, and Black. I feel that the choice of colors is a huge advantage over the original Lavatube. It offers a whole new fit and finish that greatly improves the looks of it. It’s now crafted from high-grade aluminum alloy, which has greatly reduced the weight of the unit.
The button system has also been redesigned. The Lavatube is no longer a 4-button system. Volcano has kept the Plus (+) and Minus (-) buttons, but have combined the On/Off and Fire button into one. The new On/Off/Fire button is located one the front of the device where the On/Off button was on the original version. It’s a nice “clicky” button that is really responsive.
The buttons on the Lavatube v2 also have a few new functions. They have incorporated the widely popular 5-click On/Off system that is used by most manual electronic cigarettes. I’ve always enjoyed this feature ever since the eGo batteries started using it.If you hold down the Plus (+) button for a few seconds the display screen will show you the resistance of the atomizer you are using. Holding down the Minus (-) button for a few seconds will show you the voltage left on your battery.
The Lavatube v2 is no longer an end cap battery system. It is now a 2-piece system that connects in the middle. The threads are much better than the tough, squeaky threads the original version sported. They’re still not exactly “butter”, but it’s a great improvement over it’s predecessor.
