IPV Mini Box Mod
30w Box Mod
If you like the compact Eleaf iStick then you will probably be interested in the new IPV Mini by Pioneer4You. This new device is a box mod with a very similar design to the Eleaf istick. Even though the 2 devices look very similar they are different in many ways.
For example the IPV Mini has a YiHi SX130 chip with a maximum output of 30 watts where as the iStick only has a maximum output of 20 watts. Another difference is the power source, the IPV Mini uses a replaceable 18650 battery and the iStick has a built in 2200mah battery. Since the IPV Mini uses 18650 batteries it’s going to be larger than the iStick but I’m not exactly sure how much larger. The problem is that I have found two different measurements used for the IPV Mini, one source says it measures 94mm by 40mm by 23mm and another source says it measures 89mm by 45mm by 22mm. For comparison the iStick measures only 75mm by 32.8mm by 21mm.
One of the big complaints users have with the Eleaf iStick is that it does not have true power regulation. Pionerr4You says that the IPV Mini will not have this problem due to it using the YiHi SX130 chit-set. This chip can output between 5-30 watts or 3.0-8.0 volts and offers true wattage regulation. It will also allow you to use any atomizers with a resistance load of 0.5ohms to 3.0ohms.
I love my Eleaf iStick and have not put it down since I first got it. The only problems I have with it is that you can’t replace the battery and it’s problems with power regulation. These are minor problems but if the IPV Mini solves these problems (and isn’t too big) it could be my new favorite device. I hope to try one soon and we may even get an IPV Mini Review on the site soon.
