IPV D3 First Impressions

The follow up to the best-selling IPV D2 is imminent, here's my first thoughts on the pre-release version of the IPV D3

Share on:

As mentioned in the introduction, the IPV D3 I received was a test version and as such some features were missing and/or are subject to change, such as the reported inclusion of voltage step down, 75J of output power in temperature control mode and the SX150H chip. A modified version of the SX130H chip found with the IPV D2 is present in the test version I received for review.

So far however, my first impressions of the IPV D3 are very promising indeed. I’ve been impressed with the new looks, paint finish, magnetic door and feature wise, I can’t fault it. Voltage step down is not something that I use with the IPV D2/D3, as I don’t tend to vape 0.3ohm coils at 10 watts, however the inclusion of it in the retail version of the IPV D3 will benefit myself as battery life will be extended slightly longer. For me, and many others, the IPV D2 was already an excellent unit and the small tweaks that will be applied to the IPV D3 will just set it apart from the competition even more. It’s shaping up to be a killer release from Pioneer4You and should the final version, sporting the SX150H chip, include voltage step down and 75J of output power as well as the features already included in the test version I received as well as a mid-range price point, we are looking at potentially the best single 18650 battery mod released to date. I’ll definitely be purchasing the finished article as soon as it becomes available based on my experiences with the test version.

Many thanks to Ash at Myepack for sending over the IPV D3 to us to review, you will be able to purchase the IPV D3 from upon its imminent release.
