Pioneer4You iPV3-Li Mod Review
The Pioneer4You iPV3-Li is here, and its a beast of a machine! In this product review, I will give you all the information you need to decide if this is what you are looking for in your next purchase. This product was not sent to me by the manufacturer. It instead was something I won at a local cloud competition.
In all honesty, I was not looking for a regulated mod of any kind as I was stuck on unregulated equipment. After getting it, I’ve decided to see what all the hype was about, and at risk of sounding like a giggly little school girl, I am so glad that I did!
Product Review Pioneer4You iPV3Li
When you take the iPV3-Li out of the gift box, the first thing you notice is how simple it looks. There are no sharp corners, all of the aluminum alloy edges have been beveled, and you can tell this has been designed and engineered with the user in mind.
If you’ve ever had the chance to see the original iPV3, you will know that all three buttons on the side were identical. The up/down menu keys remain the same, but the fire button is now larger and feels better under your finger.
The OLED screen between the tactile buttons is easy to read. It’s bright and does not have a glaring problem like some other mods in this class. Whether you’re in a dark room or blazing sunshine, you can see what you are running comfortably.
As you head around to the top of the iPV3-Li, you will find a spring-loaded 510 connection. My favorite part of this whole thing is the fully functional touch sensor. More about that later on. Head around the corner to the other edge we find Pioneer4Yous starboard emblem and logo.
Head to the bottom for vent holes galore and a micro-USB port for upgrades and charging. The front of the billet box has the Pioneer4You logo and nonchalantly mention the model at the bottom and reveal the powerhouse inside, the YiHi SX330V3SL chip.
Inside the back door, we have a clean unit with a spring-loaded sled space for two 18650 batteries in series. The positive and negative ends are clearly marked. There’s a pull cord to help get the batteries out with ease and once again, it is emblazoned with the logo.
You will see a small metal ball bearing and some rubber feet inside here that have one function between them, which is making sure that the door doesn’t accidentally come off, and they do their job well.
The iPV3-Li screams quality as we take in each detail of the Pioneer4. They don’t seem to have overlooked anything. I did notice that inside the door cover there are holes for two ball bearings, one at the top and another towards the bottom, but I believe that when they put the rubberized feet inside, they figured they wouldn’t need a second one in there.
Five clicks on the fire button and the beast is alive! In power (wattage) mode, you have five preset levels to adjust between levels quickly.
To adjust out of these, you press the down button once then change to your heart’s content. As soon as you hit the fire button, the number is locked in as a preset.
The touch sensor can be turned off by holding the ‘fire’ and ‘down’ buttons at the same time for a couple of seconds.
The touch sensor is activated when you hit the fire button and will stay active for as long as the screen is on. When the screen turns off, you have to wake it out of sleep mode with the fire switch.
Five more clicks of the fire button open up the menu screen.
- System On/Off
- Mode Power/Joules
- Exit On/Off
Hitting ‘fire’ will scroll through the menu. Hit ‘up’ and ‘down’ to go into the menus themselves. ‘Exit’ takes you back to whichever mode you were in previously.
Temperature 212-572 °F
When operating in Joule’s mode, you have options between 5-50J. We have heard that it will be upgraded to 75J in the near future.
