itaste MPV, Great mod battery at a super price

I have been using this itaste mpv for a while now, but decided it is past time to give a full review of it.   After looking at all the different mods out there to come up with a nice long lasting batter that is easier on the pocket book than most, I chose to go with the Itaste MPV mod.   It comes in 3 color choices; silver, black and metallic blue.   I would have got the black if they had them in stock when I picked mine up, but they had blue and silver,, so I took the silver, because the only blue one they had,,, had a scratch on it.    I wanted black, because when I am driving, the sun always seems to find anything shiny, and blasts the sun right back at me.

The thing that made me look at it though, was the price.  Then I saw that several of the people at the vapor store were using them also, so I asked about it, and it seemed great.  Especially since it was only about $50.  Well, I think I paid $55 plus tax.

Ok, after using this for several months now, I only have one small complaint, and it is pretty minor indeed.  The power button sits flush with the outside of the mod.  You can feel it, but you do need to pay attention to it or you will be off a bit and not push it good enough.  Sometimes, when out walking the dog, or doing other things, i find myself accidentally shutting the power off, because my finger will not be on the button right, and must bounce on it and shut it down.  Not often, but it happens to me about once a week.  So, like I said,  no major complaint, but it is there.  If the button protruded a bit more, I don’t think this would ever happen on accident.

This battery lasts a very long time too.  More than other 2600 mh batteries, and I have found out why.  I went on, you guessed it,,,, and watched several others reviewing it, and found one guy that tore it to pieces, and opened it up.  There is not one 2600 mh battery, but 2, 2200mh batteries.  This gives it very stable and long lasting power.  If you can’t plug it in over night, no big deal.  I vape 300 or more puffs a day, and it will last me 2 to 3 days without having to charge it back up.   Generally I do charge it every night though.

The power indicator tells you how much charge is left also.  It glows green for full power, and tests show it gives full power throughout this cycle.  Then when it glows yellow, it is telling you to get it on the charger. It does loose a bit of the power when it is glowing yellow. The final stage is red.  If you do not charge it, it will shut itself down to prevent the batteries from over discharging.  That is a cool feature.  Like I said, I generally plug it in nightly, except when I was testing how long it would last.

This thing has so much power in it, that if say your out on your boat fishing and your cell phone is dying,,, you can plug into the bottom of it, and charge your phone, and still have plenty of power left to vape.  It has a standard USB power port on the bottom, and a switch to turn on when using it as a charger for a phone, or other device.  How cool is that…

There is also a puff counter on it.  It will tell you how many puffs you have used since you last turned it on.  I generally turn it off at night when I charge it and keep track of my daily usage that way.  It is also where the up and down buttons are, to set the voltage to what you want to use.  It goes from 3.3, to 5 volts in one tenth of a volt increments.   Some flavors taste better at a higher setting, while others will give a burnt taste, and you have to turn them down.

I can use it on all my cartomizers, and my corsair atty, as well as my vivi nova tank. It is very versatile, and fits well in my shirt pocket.

At around $50 bucks, it is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a battery that absolutely will not die off before the end of the day.  It is so nice, I am putting the factory sales page info below, so you can see all the details.  I am sure I missed something along the way.  Like, the cord… it has a IPAD/IPhone as well as firewire and mini USB ports on it for plugging in most devices you would need to charge with it.

I hope this is helpful for you.  I love this thing, and the price range is great.  Beats the heck out of having to spend $100 or more on something that has to be charged daily.
happy vaping,
