Lavatube vs. Silver Bullet

Lavatube-vs-Silver-Bullet

The Silver Bullet is one of the most popular USA-made e-cigarette mods. Its simple design incorporates a mechanical switch designed to last for hundreds of thousands of clicks, and its enormous battery provides days of life. Owners have praised its reliability and even power response across the entire charge cycle of the battery. If you don’t expect to use your e-cigarette at any power level other than 3.7 volts, it’s an excellent and affordable choice for long battery life and great vapor production. However, Volcano’s Lavatube e-cigarette costs just a bit more. Unlike the Silver Bullet, it allows you to adjust the voltage to any level between 3.0 and 6.0 volts for best performance with the atomizer or cartomizer of your choice. Because the Lavatube has a significantly higher power level, the Silver Bullet can’t compete with it in terms of vapor production. While I believe that the Lavatube is the superior product in terms of performance for cost, the Silver Bullet is certainly worth considering if you’re sure you’ll never need to change the voltage. If you’re considering the Lavatube vs. the Silver Bullet, I hope this chart will make the decision easier.
