Dovpo M VV-II Initial Impressions
So the Dovpo M VV mark 2 comes pretty well packaged, not the strongest packaging I’ve seen but it’s enough to protect the contents inside. You have a clear plastic window that allows you to see the mod before you take the lid off, so you don’t get that initial excitement of opening the box to see what’s in there…
The Dovpo M VV-II… well I like it. It kind of reminds me a little bit with the artwork of the Asvape Michael mod (only this is more plastic) It has that Tattoo kind of vibe to it. I really do like the design, its a devil, or demon or something like that, lots of swirls and maybe vapour going on around the outside of the head, and the whole thing is black and white apart from red lips! The design is called ‘Hannya’ and according to WIKI –
The Hannya (般若) mask is a mask used in Noh theater, representing a jealous female demon. It possesses two sharp bull-like horns, metallic eyes, and a leering mouth.
It doesn’t look very female to me!
The Dovpo MVV-II is a bit of a chunky box mod, and apart from the artwork on the side panels it is quite basic. No screen, no adjustment buttons, what you do get is a potentiometer, a small dial on the side of the mod that allows you to alter the wattage, more on that later. What this does mean, is theres no TCR, no temp control, no wattage, no power curve, just voltage.
There is no branding at all on the Dovpo M VV-II, nothing at all, the only word you will find on this mod (and I actually think it’s stupid!) is OPEN, and this is placed on the side of the mod where you remove the battery cover! I really do think that was ridiculous to put the word ‘Open’ on the mod, they could have added this to manual and kept the mod clean of all lettering, why write the instructions on the mod?
The 510 has a springy pin, meaning (hopefully) it should take any tank or dripper you want to use. And you will get away with a 25mm tank, at a push you might be able to squeeze a 26mm on there.
The Dovpo M VV-II Features
Batteries & Button – The Dovpo MVV mark 2 is a dual 18650 battery mod, to pop your batteries in just push your nail under the side battery cover (where that word open is!) and flip the cover upwards. The cover is held in place by 2 pretty strong magnets, the fit of the cover is spot on, no wobbles or play in that side cover at all.
The directions of the batteries is molded into the plastic, and you also get a ribbon to help with battery removal as they do sit fairly tight in the tray (meaning no battery rattle).
will also find the charging port for the Dovpo mod under the battery
cover. This is a USB-C type port, and you will find the type C lead in
the box. You can keep an eye on the status of your batteries via the
small led above the potentiometer, green is fully charged, and then it
drops to orange as the batteries deplete, and of course red means that
you should get those batteries on charge.
The Button – Just the one and that is the fire button, slightly raised and dome shaped is nice and comfy to press, and just right on the clicky scale. Not too quiet that you don’t know if you pressed it or not, and not that loud that’s it’s gonna wake the sleeping dog at your feet! (that’s just my experience)
The Dovpo M VV-II Potentiometer – This is the small dial on the bottom section at the side of the mod. It has an arrow painted in white, and the numbers 1 to 5 round the outside in roman numerals. This is how you will alter the power, just use a fingernail, or small screwdriver and turn the arrow.
I do recommend that you check the ohms of your dripper or tank first before popping it onto the Dovpo mod, and first off turn that potentiometer all the way down to numero uno! (number 1) then keep adjusting the arrow slightly until you hit the sweet spot for the tank or dripper that you’re using. That’s it, it really is that simple. No screen, no confusing menu’s, just that one dial controls your vape experience.
Dovpo M VV-II Safety features – The good thing about this Dovpo mod, even though it’s simplicity on the surface, underneath you do get a few safety features. Low voltage Protection, Overheat Protection, overtime Vaping Warning ,Battery-reversal Protection. I think this is great and I’m all for adding some safety to the simplicity.
The Dovpo M VV-II Performance
The only thing I can say for this is that it works like a dream. I have no way of measuring whether the output is what it’s supposed to be, I have no idea what voltage each of the numbers is supposed to be on the potentiometer, but I don’t need to know. I just adjusted the dial to my tastes, which is number 3 on a 0.4ohm coil and the Dovpo does it’s job without any problems or misfires at all.
The Dovpo M VV-II Final Thoughts
I like it, the artwork is great, although I do know it’s not going to be to everyone’s taste. At the moment there are a couple of other styles available, Dragon Samurai, and Skull & Roses, these are along the same (tattoo art) kind of styles, but it will be interesting to see if Dovpo decide to release any other designs, or even plain sides.
It is a chunky mod, and not one of the comfiest that I’ve used. However it also isn’t one of the worst, it doesn’t make me want to put it back down as soon as I’ve picked it up.
I do love the simplicity of the M VV-II, there’s no adjustment buttons to accidentally press, and I honestly don’t think the Potentiometer is going to get adjusted in my pocket (it hasn’t so far) There’s no menu to keep fiddling with, it really is just set and vape. And with none of those things, that also means that there’s less to go wrong.
Will the Dovpo M VV-II be retired to the shelf? – I honestly don’t think it will, this is something that I can just keep vaping with and not have to worry about settings.
Ceekays Shack Score
This mod doesn’t lose any points at all for me, the simplicity of the Dovpo M VV-II scores a fantastic 5/5
