    I use both, an ego-c upgrade battery with an iclear16 for outside the house, and my MVP2 w/ iclear30-s for home use. Both serves it purpose of exactly what I want to do; the ego for compact vaping with no reduction on vapor/taste output , and MVP2 for a more customizable vaping experience w/ tons of vape and taste.

    Bottom line, you simply cannot go wrong with the MVP2, it does everything and more you will need for a great vaping experience!

    So basically the MVP comes with $12 worth of battery and when the battery wears out you throw it away. I think that's why it's being marketed so heavily. Battery sales don't help the device manufacturer.
    I typically get nearly 3 days per charge with steady use with my MVP. Will you get that long with a single 2900 mAh Panny 18650PD ? Maybe, maybe not. Only needing to charge my MVP every 3rd day is a huge benefit to me, and I can continue to use it while it is being charged.

    The duty cycle for most rechargeable batteries is 300 charges. Both the MVP and the Panny's can be expected to be replaced at that time. Since the MVP only needs to be charged every 2 - 3 days, that works out to over 2 - 3 years that I expect the MVP to last based on duty cycle. The Panny's will likely need to be replaced before that.

    Not everyone wants a huge lightsaber for a mod, especially when they leave the house. The convenient size, lightweight, and portability combined with the battery capacity of the MVP wins hands down in that department for me. I'd be highly surprised to hear of any Vamo or Evic lasting a year without threads being stripped (Vamo) or the body cracking (Evic). If I get two years from my MVP for just $50 I feel I've gotten my money's worth.

The Panny's will likely need to be replaced way before that.

    Is that 300 charge cycle rule-of-thumb good for most Li-Ion batts?

    I was being conservative.

    "Battery duty cycle refers to the approximate number of recharges it can be “cycled” through before the battery will no longer hold a charge. Duty cycles can be 500 charges but will vary depending on the core battery composition." - Deeper Understanding of Mod Batteries

    "The typical estimated life of a Lithium-Ion battery is about two to three years or
    300 to 500 charge cycles, whichever occurs first. One charge cycle is a period
    of use from fully charged, to fully discharged, and fully recharged again. Use a
    two to three year life expectancy for batteries that do not run through complete
    charge cycles." - Lithium-Ion Battery Maintenance Guidelines

    "300 - 500 cycles" - Battery University

    "Under normal discharge loads, Li-Ion batteries have a life span of between 300 and 500 cycles. With moderate use, Li-Ion batteries are expected to deliver approximately 80% of their rated capacity after 300 cycles or about one year of use." - Understanding Lithium-Ion and Smart Battery Technology

    I see so many positive posts about this mod, sounds like a great device.

    I have an 8 month old MVP that still goes into the third day of vaping (as in two full days and it dies mid morning of the third)

    I also have some pretty new Panny 2900PD's from Orbatronics to go in my Provari's..... (which are hellacious batteries)

    The Pannys still dont last as long as the MVP.

    When all is said and done, what Bad and others say about the MVP is just spot on...... 39.00 and shipping for a brand new MVP2 ? Are you kidding? Is that not the best deal in the vaping world ?

    I truely Love my ProVari's and have just ordered a Semovar for 300 bucks just to check it out......... But I will not be without an MVP. Its just such a great back up device. I take it camping and to MC Rallies and loan it out to friends and family. One stays in my truck just in case I forget my other mod or forget extra batteries.

    39.00 bucks ? No brainer.
    Keep Calm and Vape On !

    Some people also dont want to have to take batteries out and charge them remotely. Im lazy and i like to just plug in my device. I love the mvp.

    The answer is yes to both "larger" and "better quality". I can't recall exactly, but the eGo Twist's default voltage is more like 3.4 or 3.5 volts, as most eGo batteries are. The typical replaceable rechargeable battery cells used in mods come off the charger at 4.2 volts.
    The Joye eGos are a regulated battery. They are charged to 4.2 volts (like the majority of e-cig batteries are) and regulated to put out 3.4 volts to ensure a consistent vape from beginning to end.

    The non-Joye eGos are unregulated. They are charged to 4.2 volts (like the majority of e-cig batteries are) and have an initial output of 4.2 volts and decreases as the voltage drops, until it requires a recharge at about 3.2 volts.

    The Joye eGo-C Twist is a Variable Voltage device. They are charged to 4.2 volts (like the majority of e-cig batteries are) and use a buck boost circuit to produce a variable output voltage between 3.2 and 5.0 volts, whichever output is selected. They do not have a "default voltage".

    There is also a Joye upgrade version that can be switched between "regulated" (3.4 volts constant) and "unregulated" (4.2 freshly charged, decreasing as the battery is used). It is also charged to 4.2 volts.

    It's not as confusing as it sounds. The majority eGo or replaceable batteries charge to the same voltage and have the same number of approximate charge cycles in their lifetime. Most e-cigs/Pvs with a built in battery will last at least until the next Great Improvement comes along and the need to upgrade would call for their replacement anyway. IMHO Lol

    Relax, Enjoy!

    Are you sure your Twist is putting out 4.8 volts at 1.8 ohms? 'Cause PBusardo's chart seems to indicate that the Twist maxes out at 3.7 volts on a 1.5 ohm coil, which gives us ~2.5 amps and ~9.1 watts. Here's a screenshot the chart if you're curious.

    Just for fun, here's the oscilloscope reading he took with the Twist cranked up to its max setting (4.8 volts). Not quite rock steady.

    For reference, PB's review showed that the MVP 2.0 maxed out at 3.3 volts on a 1.0 ohm coil, good for 3.3 amps and 10.89 watts. Here's the oscilloscope of the MVP, which, in contrast to a number of popular removable-battery mods, is remarkably smooth: MVP set to 4.7 Volts.

    Of course, I could have read or calculated something wrong. If so, then I'd be grateful for a correction.

    The VAMO seems to max out at 4.5 volts on a 1.5 ohm coil. That's 3 amps and 13.5 watts.

    (Also here's the VTR's oscilloscope reading for fun, even though you didn't mention it. It's the most similar-looking mod to the MVP off the top of my head.)

    I got tired of taking screenshots, but I think the point is fairly clear: the performance of these devices isn't always exactly as advertised; the performance contrasts between them certainly aren't always intuitive. For someone who's not looking to push more than 11 watts, the MVP seems to deliver power much more smoothly than some of its leading competitors in the entry-level mod market.

    Baditude covered this part admirably.

    Or it could be the placebo effect due to the persistent promotion of the MVP2 which the twist lacks


    This is a common mistake.
    The Amperage is determined by voltage and resistance, not battery size. (assuming you don't exceed the batteries current capability of course)

    Yes, this makes sense to me, though I'm no engineer. I think that voltage regulation has more to do with the better vape that we get on the upgraded devices than anything else. I have found from my own experience that I do get a better vape on the MVP than on a Twist. However, I get better vape on the eVic than I do on the MVP. I get a better vape on the Provari than on the eVic and a better vape on the Semovar, than I do on the Provari. The only reason for this phenomenon is voltage regulation, either that, or it's all in my head. However, I've had so many vaper friends tell me the exact same thing, that it certainly plays a role. Anyway, my two cents.
    Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest, and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine Rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else, desire variable power.
