pbusardo Innokin iTaste VTR review
2 REO Grands w/RM2 RDAs • Super-T Simplicity 18500 w/IBTank cartos
ProVari 3 w/IBTank ΣΟΦΙΑs • JoyeTech eVic + USB eGos w/ProTanksSwedish snus - a stealthier alternative to stealth vaping.
I thought I'd never get into mods, just because they are so big and I like the small form factor of the twist. I guess the Itaste VV v3 is sort of like a mod, but still small enough that I would like it. I checked out the VTR and it is a bit pricey. I do like the way the MVP looks though.
MVP V2, Joye twist, KFL+ V2 clone, Zenith V2 clone, Igo-s
The iTaste 3 is a small mod. If you do get it and want to use it as a pass-through I'd suggest getting a different micro-cable. This is the one I ordered, it's 6ft long: Joyetech eVic Electronic Cigarette USB Lead/Charger - Only $4.99 at Totally Wicked-eliquid. I have 2 Vision Spinners 1300mAh that I still use along with an iTaste 3 800mAh and the MVP 2 2600mAh. I enjoy them all and use them all! You won't go wrong with any of them. Happy Vaping!
1) iTaste is 800mAh. Spinner is available in 1,300. Twist 1,100. Both better.
2) How come an iTaste performs better than a twist? It's a battery. There's nothing in it.
I would love an iTaste VV, but it's quite pricey and 800mAh is depressing. It has loads of funky features and looks cool etc. etc but choose it over a Twist because you like it and/or want the features.
If I line up my Spinner, or my eVic (currently dead) and/or my Lavatube all running 4.0v on a 2.0ohm atomizer, the vape will be the same.
I think it's a fabulous battery....by the way.
iTaste...VV and, more important, VW
Say I'm using the Voltage setting (U) on the iTaste (or Twist or Spinner):
I put on a 1.8 ohm topper. 3.0 Volt will give me a cool vape and 3.5 Volt will give me a warm vape.
Then I switch to a 2.5 ohm topper. I then have to "play around" with the settings to find that 3.7 Volt will give me a cool vape and 4.3 Volt will give me a warm vape.
Say I then decide to use the Wattage setting (P) on the iTaste (not available on the Twist nor Spinner):
I put on a 1.8 ohm topper. 6.5 Watt will give me a cool vape and 8.0 Watt will give me a warm vape.
Then I switch to a 2.5 ohm topper. 6.5 Watt will still give me a cool vape and 8.0 Watt will still give me a warm vape.
Thus...by using Watts it will auto adjust for whatever ohm I put on...to get a similar vape no matter the coil.
I do agree. I just think saying the itaste performs better is only half the story.
My eVic died, I bought an SID instead, as I didn't have the money. I use the SID in VV mode, because it only does 0.5 watts increments.
Here is my thing, I just bought an Itaste vv 3.0 it is a pretty strong learning curve for a newbie. I have found that I vape a lot warmer than I thought I would. I have mine set on 9.5 watts right now. My other battery is an ego-t upgrade which I also bought recently(I had broken my other ego). I like the ego very much. The itaste allows me flexibility. The unit seems very well built and I love that it does not roll.
Here's my take on this. I chose an MVP because I have spinners and twists, which work fine and I use them when I go out and about. I bought the MVP because the battery life is super, it works perfectly, it's relatively inexpensive (my kit included an Iclear30, charger and beauty rink) for 55 bucks shipped.
The IclearVV is 35 bucks with a charger. So for me the MVP made sense since I use it at home, on the boat and when we go out of town. Now if I didn't have perfectly good spinners and twists I may have bought the IC VV3. The only thing I do not like about the VV3 is that it's only 800MAH and it's ability to hit the stated power is suspect.
I have four iTaste 3.0's and replaced all my other stick batteries with them, giving them to friends and PIF's. At this time, I believe them to be the best stick battery on the market. A full featured APV in a form factor smaller than a Twist or Spinner, the iTaste 3.0 can be used a primary, backup, stealth and out and about device. Unlike most larger APV's, once you upgrade, you don't use them as often, whereas with a stick battery, you'll find many uses, like out and about, for as long as they last. I have drawers full of a dozen or more APV's that I no longer use, yet I still use the iTaste. I'm quite impressed and regularly recommend them. You can use virtually any ego or 510 threaded device on them, which is to say, almost all of them. Good luck in your GearQuest! Welcome to the Forum.
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.
Twist= 3.0 amps
iTaste= 3.5 amps plus VW and a few bells and whistles.
If I were to choose between the Twist/ Spinner and iTaste I'd get the iTaste.
Nest step up the ladder. Both very highly regarded but quite a bit larger and heavier.
