Good Improvements over the Original MVP 3

I like that Innokin quickly took on board what people were saying about the original MVP 3 and came back with a much improved version. The MVP 3 Pro now features some much needed improvements. The minimum resistance is 0.2ohm instead of 0.4ohm, which is great for sub ohm tanks and low ohm RDA builds. The max wattage is now double what it used to be at 60W. Again this is a much needed change, for the newer higher wattage tanks and clearomizers that have recently been released. Lastly the battery capacity has been increased to 4400mAh from 2800mAh. This means the new battery will quite literally last you days and days.

Massive Battery Life

As mentioned above the MVP 3 Pro features a ginormous 4400mAh battery. This is the same size as the Eleaf iStick 50W battery and more than double that of the Innokin Coolfire IV.

You will get a good couple of days’ worth of vaping from the MVP 3 pro battery if vaping around 30W on a 0.5ohm coil. Obviously lower ohm coils and higher wattages will require more battery power, but it should still last you a full days’ worth of vaping!

Good Max Wattage and 0.2ohm Minimum Resistance

The older MVP 3 was just not powerful enough for its size and price. You now have sub ohm tanks flooding the market where you will be needing 40-60W for some of their lower resistance coils. The new 60W max on the MVP Pro is great for the majority of these tanks.

The MVP 3.0 Pro can also fire down to 0.2ohm, which is again much needed in this current sub ohm vaping market. We have a lot of coils and builds that are around the 0.2ohm mark, so having this capability is in my opinion a must and something that was lacking on the old device.

Sturdy and Robust

As with the old MVP 3, the MVP 3 Pro is extremely robust and solid. I am pretty sure you can take a hammer to it and it will still be working afterwards (don’t want to try this though!). The Innokin devices are really high quality these days and the electrics are usually all very well done as well. However, being that robust does mean the MVP3 pro is quite heavy and isn’t the most ergonomic of devices.

Good Big Screen

The screen on the Innokin MVP 3 Pro is one of the best screens around. The writing is nice and large and can be read extremely easy. Even those with poor eyesight will be able to read the screen without any issues.

Spring Loaded Pin

You still see some box mods these days without a spring loaded pin. Luckily the MVP 3 Pro comes with a nice gold plated 510 spring loaded pin for a great connection with all tanks and RDAs. The MVP 3 Pro also comes with an ego adapter, should you want to use any ego type devices.

Cable to Charge other Devices

The MVP 3 Pro features a mini USB cable that is tucked away at the bottom of the device. This means you can charge other electrical devices with a mini USB connection. Just to give you an idea as to how good the battery is on the MVP 3 pro, you can charge a Samsung S5 several times over with just one battery life! This is a handy feature to have in case your phone or other box mods die.

Price

Innokin have loweredthe price of the MVP3 Pro compared to the previous MVP 3. I think the previous MVP 3 was retailing around $70, which was a touch on the high side, but the newer version now retails around $55, which is not a bad price at all considering the quality and specs of this device.

Dislikes

Heavy and Bulky

When you compare the MVP 3 Pro to box mods like the Coolfire IV, Kanger Subox and the iStick 50W you will find that the MVP 3 Pro is quite a bit heavier. It is also not the most streamlined and sleek looking box mod. It is still very much a “box” mod in its shape and design. It does, however sit well in your hand and the coating is very nice on the outside, but it is still a touch on the large and heavy side. If you want something smaller then look at the Kanger Subox or Innokin Coolfire IV.

Battery Takes Ages to Charge

The battery life is absolutely awesome, which is a big positive, but being a non-removable lipo it also takes a good 5 hours to recharge! The MVP 3 Pro does have pass through charging, so you can carry on vaping whilst it is charging through your laptop or PC.

No Temp Control

This isn’t a major negative, but there are a lot of temp control box mods coming out right now, so it would be good to see the next version of this box mod feature temperature control!

Verdict

I am a big fan of the Innokin devices, as they are very well made devices. Innokin really do take on board the feedback the community give them and implement this into their work. The MVP 3 Pro is a big improvement over the original and Innokin have introduced some much needed improvements. The lower minimum resistance at 0.2ohm, the higher wattage at 60W and the larger battery capacity are all great improvements and things we liked about this box mod.

The MVP 3 Pro is a box mod for those who want something that is solid and feels a little bit weightier in the hand that has the ability to sub ohm vape with the lastest sub ohm clearomizers on the market. The 60W max wattage gives you plenty of flexibility when it comes to the devices you can vape with this box mod. I have no doubt this device will last you years as the previous Innokin box mods have done in the past.

Overall we really like the MVP 3 Pro and think it is a top quality box mod, albeit slightly on the heavier side!

    can i use Samsung or iphone charger to charge it ?

    • Sorry for the late reply. You might be able to use the Samsung one, but I would stick with the provided charging cables just in case.

      • zak

        hi, I just bought my mvp pro and it only comes with the cable itself, if I wanted to use a block that plugs into the wall, like my samsung charger (5V/2A) would this be ok or would I damage it? thanks

    • Gem615

      I too am bad about using my cell chargers to charge all my mods. They basically all have the plug/ connector (?mini usb?) & work just as well as charging cables that come w/ your mod(s). No biggie as far as I’m concerned & you don’t have to worry about a huge tangled mess at the end of the day if just using 1 cable for all your devices 🙂

    Why does it make me cough severely when I take a hit of my cool fire iv and I don’t blow out any clouds?

    • It depends on what PG/VG ratio you use and how much nicotine is in your juice. This tank is for sub ohm vaping and is used for direct inhale, I would suggest getting high VG and low nic e-liquid.

    • Gem615

      Definitely, you have too high of a PG percentage in your juice mix & you may not have your voltage/ wattage high enough… that is unless you;re getting burn taste (which means too high and/or your wicks not wet enough). Rule of thumb for ejuice (I make my own now 😉 more of one or the other amount to; PG = throat hit, so you feel like you’re actually vaping something. Also thins ejuice out if too thick. VG = more vapor. Also adds slightly more sweetness to your ejuice, and will thicken overall – but remember that too thick will gunk up your coils a lot quicker.
      Most ‘flavors’ alone (such as LorAnns, Flavor Apprentice, etc.) do have a PG base, though nothing too crazy that makes a real dent unless you really use a LOT – if mixing your own juices. Many people use straight VG, which will definitely give you huge clouds – but if you’re an ex-smoker especially, you may not get as much satisfaction from it as it will mostly lack that ‘throat hit’ that is that similar feeling when taking a drag off of a regular cig (aka analog cig)…
      For anyone that MIXES YOUR OWN JUICE, not necessarily a plug here, but I have found some of the BEST PRICES for DIY’ers at Wizard Labs, incl. 100% liq nic starting in 120ml bottles (US measurements -approx 4 oz) for 15.99 (which means its 100mg nic per 1ml) – which goes a LONG way when making huge batches even at 27-36mg overall nic strength in your final product. Their PG 120ml bottles are only $3.19 & as a LorAnn xtra strength fan, they carry colorless (no worries about diacetyl at all if its not there!) in huge 120ml/ 4oz bottles for only 11.49… Can’t beat that with a stick!!!! 🙂

    Having received a defective MVP 3.0 Pro from Innokin, I contacted customer service via email to explain to them that my vape was spitting even on the lowest voltage / wattage and making a loud bursting sound each time which sounded very dangerous. All they did was blame other variable factors such as the e liquid etc. I explained that I own many vapes and bought my liquids from LA and they were from different reputed brands. I even sent them videos of the noise the vape was making. And so they kept moving on to blame other variables such as putting extra drops in the coil etc etc. My only request to them was for me to post the vape to them so that they could have a go at repairing it but their customer service does their best to frustrate you so in the end you give up.

    Even though Innokin offer a supposedly ’90 day warranty’ on their products, don’t be fooled by this since there is a ZERO CHANCE they will do anything to help with a defective product from their end. Just know that, if you receive a defective product like I did, that’s your money down the drain immediately. If you would like more information and details about my correspondence with Innokin, please get in touch and I would be more than happy to share.

      ive had my mvp since december of 2015 and i have several friends who own one too. the spitting and crackling from the tank is normal, it happens with every one of their isub tanks ive seen….

    • Gem615

      Keep your receipt & check w the seller on their return policy…. let them deal w faulty products. I have found most of the time most retailers will swap out faulty products, as they want to keep your business vs a mfg all the way in China 😉

    Can i charge it through the usb output? The smaller inport is failing
