When choosing a box mod, go for a brand name that is associated with high-quality products. The MVP 3.0 from Innokin is an improvement on an already widely-popular device. Version 3 has some upgrades and features that make it an even better value and a great starter device for new vapers looking for their first mod. Read on to find out more about it.
Innokin iTaste MVP 3 Testing and Performance
The Innokin iTaste MVP 3.0 box mod is an upgrade to the previous version with more wattage (30W instead of 20W), longer battery life (3800 mah) and included eGo to 510 adapter for your favorite eGo-style tanks.
The original MVP was my first ever box mod and I loved it. It did have some issues which were corrected in version 3 which I also love. I have had a great experience using the MVP 3 and think it would be a great device for vapers of all experience levels since it is so easy to use. Here is an overview of what it comes with and some information on how it works.
Build quality and Design
It is the same form factor and design as the MVP 2.0 but a little larger and more defined. The design is meant to look sharper and edgier, which it does. It is more squared on the corners and edges instead of the rounded corners of the previous version. The buttons and the OLED screen are larger and easier to use as well. The menu system is very easy to navigate, even for a beginning vaper.
This is a very solid and well-made device. Innokin is well-known for their high-quality vapor products. All the threads are very smooth and there are no loose parts to rattle or squeak. I have had no issues with this device at all and believe it to be a very durable piece of vaping equipment.
Ease of Use
This device is very easy to use with 3 clicks to turn it on & off. To change from voltage to wattage mode, hold the power button along with the ( - ) button until the number flashes. Then use the ( + ) button to increase the voltage in +1 increments. To switch to wattage, hold the power button and the ( + ) button. If you hold the plus and minus button together the screen will flip from right to left for those left-handed vapers. That is the extent of the menu system.
The MVP 3 is slightly larger and taller than the original MVP, and somewhat square and boxy. It fits the hand and is comfortable to hold.
Features and functions
I love that this device has a nice clear OLED display that is easy to read and easy navigation menu.
It has an adapter for eGo-style atomizers and spring-loaded 510 connection for sub-ohm tanks.
It also has some built-in user protections like low voltage or short circuit, and the device will automatically shut off to avoid damage to the device if there are any problems.
It has a real-time ohm meter that will display your atomizer coil and alert you in the event you try and use an atomizer that is below the minimum resistance ( 0.4 ohms). It will flash and the device will not power on until you disconnect the atomizer. I think this is one of the best features this device has for user safety.
Wattage and Power
This device is a variable voltage/variable wattage system with a maximum output of 30W or 9 volts depending on the mode you use it in. It has plenty of power to run your favorite atomizer tanks for joyous vaping all day long.
The MVP 3.0 has an integrated 3800 mah battery that is capable of charging other devices through a built-in charging cable on the bottom of the device. The maximum wattage for this device is 30W so the battery will last a long time and it also has pass-through charging so in the event you drained the battery charging your phone you can plug into your laptop and vape while it recharges. You’ll never be left with a dead battery.
What We Liked
+ Micro USB charging
+ Pass-through vaping
+ Capable of charging other devices
+ Similar in size to the original MVP
+ The power button is on the front (not on the side)
What We Didn't
- There really isn’t much not to like about this device. It does not have a charging piece for the iPhone which isn’t really a con since you can just carry your phone charger and plug it into the USB port on the bottom.
I have seen this mod advertised online through various retailers for $39.95 which is a good deal in my opinion. This device has so many positive features to it that make it a great value at any price. It does not come with an atomizer but it works very well with a number of sub ohm tanks including the Kanger Subtank and Aspire Atlantis.
Innokin had a great product in the MVP 2, and now with the MVP 3, things have gotten even better. For a lot of vapers, the MVP 2 was their first real mod (including myself) so the new and improved version 3 is a welcome addition to any vaping collection. I love the new version and highly recommend it to any new vapers looking for their first mod. It is beautiful, well-made, and affordable on any budget. What’s not to love.
