IPV5 75W Glitch
If you are about to purchase an IPV5, it might be worth holding off on your purchase! Apparently the first batch of IPV5s are susceptible to a glitch where the device won’t fire above 75W. This is because of the chip Pioneer4you are using in the IPV5. It is rumoured P4Y will be replacing this chip with the next batch of IPV5s.
Quote from a reliable vendor:
From what I was told, we received a batch of IPV5’s and they were all or mostly all defective. I understand that P4Y basically sent out a first batch to every vendor who ordered, and had to stop production once again because everyone who was selling this mod had the same issue where the device wouldn’t fire over 75 watts. This was an issue with the SX Chip in the IPV5. There is a fix to this issue, but it’s not something that was announced by the factory, rather you have to search on YouTube for the solution. They are changing the IPV5’s to carry a different SX chip. It is very possible that those vendors currently selling the IPV5 have received ones with the bad chip.
