In this article we take a look at the brand new 30W box mod by Innokin – the MVP 3.0.
We were kindly sent the MVP 3.0 by No.1Ejuice in the UK who stock the device for just £46 – any EU and UK readers should definitely check out their very competitively priced online store.
The iTaste MVP 3.0 is the newest box mod in the best-selling MVP iTaste series by Innokin. The iTaste is a well-built 30W box mod with some great functions and in built safety features. The MVP 3 is also capable of firing down to 0.4ohm therefore making it compatible with the latest sub ohm tanks by Aspire, Kanger and Joyetech.

So having used the MVP 2.0, the MVP 3.0 is in my opinion a much improved version. I and many others loved the MVP2 and Innokin have managed to keep the good things about the original and have added on some even better features.
Sub Ohm Ability
The MVP 3.0 has the ability to sub ohm and can fire as low as 0.4ohm. This means it can use the new generation of tanks that feature the sub ohm coils. This is really important, as so many people have been purchasing the new sub ohm tanks. They work flawlessly on the MVP3 and having the power to go up to 30W will be enough for most people using RDAs, sub ohm tanks, standard clearomizers and glassomizers.
Great Informative LED Display
The screen is really informative. It shows you the resistance of the tank you have on the device, the current wattage and the voltage in real time when you fire the button. If you hold down the plus and minus buttons, you can also invert the information show on the screen. Three fast clicks of the fire button turn off the device off. Adjusting the voltage and wattage is also very simple using the plus and minus buttons. The device also remembers your last setting which is a nice feature.
Fantastic Build Quality
The build quality on the iTaste MVP 3.0 is very impressive. When you put the iTaste MVP 3 in your hand, it feels solid and sturdy. It isn’t the lightest of devices, but it feels like it was built with quality and durability in mind. You don’t get the rattling of plastic buttons and plasticky feel like you get on some of the mini box mods. This is solid piece of kit that feels like it will last you a long time. I also think the stainless steel finish with the dimples. It looks great and the device also comes in several different colors, for those who want something different.
Charge other Devices with your MVP 3!
The MVP 3.0 comes with a mini usb charger. This means you can use the MVP 3 to charge any Android devices you may have. This is really handy for charging your phone on the go, if you are running low. The MVP also has a USB port so you can also charge your iPhone, other USB devices or even your old MVP 2! The MVP 3.0 also features pass through charging, so you can still vape whilst you are charging your box mod.
Many Impressive Safety Features
- 15 second shut off in case the MVP gets accidently turned on or you press the fire button in your pocket
- Low Voltage Warning: The LED will blink red when the battery capacity is lower than 3.3V and the MVP3.0 will automatically shut off
- Short Circuit/Atomizer Protection: Protects the iTaste MVP3 against shorted atomizers and will stop the unit from functioning in unsafe conditions
- The iTaste MVP3.0 features an automatic real-time atomizer Ohms detection. If the resistance of the atomizer is lower than 0.4 the Ohms bar will blink and the MVP3 will not power on
Amazing Battery Life
The battery life is terrific. If you are vaping this at a lower wattage like 6-15W, the device will last you for several days! Obviously using the MVP 3 at 30W with a sub ohm coil will use more battery, but will still get you through a good day of vaping with one charge. There is also a little LED on the top of the device that will light up different colors indicating the battery life left in the tank.
Other Little Things
The fire button is now placed in a better position. It used to be on the wider side of the mod on the older version. I prefer where they have put it now as I can use my thumb to press it more easily.
The device also comes with a very well written and detailed manual. It also explains everything in detail for beginners, which is very helpful for those new to vaping. Sometimes the manuals are near useless written in fractured English and lacking any content. This manual is very good and should be the type of manual that comes as standard with every type of advanced personal vaporizer or box mod.
Honestly there is very little to complain about if anything at all with the MVP 3.0. The only thing that some people might not like is the size and weight of the device. As you can see from the pics below it is larger than mini box mods and quite a bit heavier due to its build quality. For those who are after a mini box which is really small, this probably isn’t the device for you. However I don’t think that’s who Innokin are targeting with this device. This device will be for those who want something that is built extremely well and is solid and sturdy. This device works really well and will carry on doing so for a long time (that’s the feeling I get from it anyway!).
