Review of The iTaste MVP
Today I visited Old Pueblo Vapor Lounge brick and mortar store and was pleasantly surprised on the amount of mods and good juices that they carry, they had the normal variety of eGo’s, handmade wood mods, some of Joyetech’s other mods and innokin mods but most importantly they will be selling the iTaste MVP soon. After talking to them for a bit I was offered the iTaste MVP. The iTaste MVP is a variable voltage mod with a 2600 mAh battery and a very simplistic menu system. If you would like more detailed information you can visit http://www.innokin.com/itaste-mvp.html.
So with this review I will first talk about the structure of the device. the case is made from metal not to sure what kind maybe stainless steel or aluminum but it is made very sturdy, looks like you could run it over with your car and it would still work(DO NOT TRY THIS). It is a rectangle that is 41mmx22mmx107mm and is available in different colors like Silver, Titanium Blue , and Black. The top and bottom are shiny, could be a chrome or a very polished metal. The sides are painted or maybe powder coated but are not silky smooth as the top and bottom which is a good thing. On the top of the device is the 510 connection with eGo threading as well, now I have heard some other reviews that they were not able to use the Kanger T3 but I had no issue with mine. on the bottom is your micro USB input port for charging your device, and it is a passthrough meaning you can use it while it is charging as long as the unit was not dead when you started charging it(only when the green light is on). This device also has a USB output port for charging other devices such as your cell phone if you have to, it also has a switch to turn the output on or off. On the back and right side is nothing(besides a logo printed on the back). On the right side is the VV Display that shows what voltage you are currently set at(3.3V-5.0V) and your puff counter(eh) as well as a minus and add button. Now the front is where the button is at as well as a ring of LEDs that will show you when its charging, being used, and when the battery’s power level.
Now I will be discussing the menu system, VERY EASY! It has a puff counter is at zero when the device is turned on and resets when it is turned off. I am not a huge fan of puff counters but you might like them. After the puff count is displayed it shows the current voltage and now it can be changed. That’s it. The main button on the front is not only the activation button but the power button after you click it three times quickly to turn it off or on. Around the button is four LEDs, on the top one red, the sides two yellow and one green on the bottom. These LEDs show battery life while in use green means go, yellow means mid power(maybe lower) and red means almost out of juice.
Personally I do like it, it is a perfect variable voltage mod for a beginner, the only thing it needs is a ohm reader and it wouldn’t hurt to have some grooves for your fingers to add a bit more grip and the buttons need to be somewhere else. So out of ten points I give this a 7. Minus 2 for the lack of ohm reader, .5 for needing some better grip and .5 for button layout. So if you are looking for a good variable voltage mod without dropping over $100 this is a good place to start.
