The Smoktech VV Gripper
Matthew Olmstead recently completed his review of the Smoktech VV Gripper. This mod was purchased from MadVapes and we gave away two of the units through contests. Keep an eye out in our Vape For Free store for your chance at nabbing one for free.
-The VV Gripper uses pulse width modulation (PWM) which gives it exceptional battery life.
-The mod is a great entry to variable voltage for less than $50, a price that’s tough to beat for most mods with big battery, variable voltage or both.
-The voltage output is accurate based on Matt’s test with an oscilloscope
-The mod suffers from questionable or poor build quality, a common problem on some Chinese made mods. Matt mentions that he hasn’t had it long enough to make a statement on its durability, but the seam where the body of the mod fits together and the wiggle in the buttons point to poor build quality and the possibility of juice getting into the unit if the user is not careful.
The VV Gripper looks to be more functionally sound than the V-Max, although it may have some issues with build quality, it does exactly what it is supposed to do and offers an very functional variable voltage mod at a bargain (under $50).
