    I just noticed the new Variable Volt Gripper that was posted on the site. I would like to know how many amps this is rated at considering that it runs on a single 18650 (3-6 volts). Is this an exclusive MV product? Either way, it's a nice addition to the lineup.

    it says 4 amp on the description, just looked at it. It kind of looks like that Orvale V8 or whatever its called, expected something that looked more like the original gripper.

    I can't believe I missed that on the description! 4 amps should do the trick with just about any atty or carto. It does look similar to the Orvale V8 but doesn't stack batteries. I may just have to order one and check it out for myself. Thanks!

    I'm not an electrical engineer but if it uses a single 18650, then it will require high-drain batteries.

    Just when I said I don't need another mod, this beauty comes out.

    True. Reading the ohms is helpful, and so is reading the volts. No more guessing if it's time to recharge the battery. I'm sure Hoog will chime in here and give us some details.

    I ordered one tonight and will let everyone know what I think of it. Looks nice. Hope the 510 connector is sturdy?

    Got a voltage indicator and multimeter but would be really nice to just slap a atty or carto on one of these devices to find out.About got a provari but couldn't justify the price..

    I guess these are so new that nobody has done an actual review of them yet. I'm anxious to hear what folks who have used it think about it.

    Does this have PVM?

    How does this compare to the Ovale V8? Noticed kit wise this is $50+ more expensive then a Ovale V8 but appears from looks and features to be the exact same thing?

    Also will this take the Panasonic IMR 18650's with flattop?

    Differences between the 2 are 4amps vs. 2.5 and MV takes 1 18650 ovale8 2 18350,gripper vv checks ohms and voltage and connector recessed in ov8 firing buttons in different places.

    Ya the difference is there 4amp so as you can run stuff at higher volts and the 1 18650 better then ovale8 i'm gonna try one for a throw in the pocket mod have the batteries for my varis already we will see if it performes as stated.

    Long as its high drain I would think it would but I would wait for hoog to chime in for sure...I'm waiting for some answers on this(gripper) and vmax before I pull the trigger.

    I just need to get something better so I can pass my Lavatube over to the better half who is getting frustrated with the 3.7 device.

    I am a righty so this or the Ovale would work fine for me but still don't understand why they don't come out with a righty and lefty version to make it available to each type of person.
