Back To Basics With The Dovpo M VV II


Lightweight, easy to use and protected, the Dovpo M VV II (II being the second generation) is a really well made and affordable box mod. This is actually the first Dovpo mod I have purchased. Dovpo makes the Topside which I believe is their best selling mod series. I happened to catch a video on this one a few weeks before release and thought it looked interesting. I really like variable voltage vaping aka VV, being as old as I am, the first variable function mods we used were VV mods only with NO protection. Later the industry added variable wattage aka VW and then temperature control, aka TC to the possibilities.

The mod is very easy to use. You just turn the potentiometer up or down until you feel it has the best heat/flavor combination from your atomizer/eLiquid, thats it. No screen to have to look at. One feature I like is one little inset LED showing you your battery level. Green Amber and Red. Full, half full, and low. As far as protections, it has all the modern ones: Low voltage, overheat, overtime and battery polarity. It also has a USB C connector to charge up your batteries. An output booster also gives you up to 8 volts or 280 watts. That’s a lots of power. Note that I usually don’t vape much beyond 5 volts because I usually build/use lower ohm coils. The other two potentiometer driven mods I own are the HexOhm and the Surric X which uses pulse width modulation or PWM output.

If you were wondering, the M VV II has a very fast response/ramp up time. In other words it responds quickly after you push the button.

As most of the reviewers state, the panel graphics are a bit much. I chose the dragon samurai of the three that are offered. I would have preferred a simple color or pattern to choose from.

Build quality is great and it feels comfortable in your hands.

In conclusion, I think this is a good mod for someone moving up from a pen style or cigalike all in one or AIO style device and also an advanced vaper who wants something simple and low cost with plenty of power and with all the basic safety features built into the chipset.
