The Viva Box Mod By Hippovape Previewed
The Hippovape Viva Box Mod is a new simple powerful mod from a company I have not heard of before?
Hippovape were apparently established in 2018 in the centre of the vaping universe Shenzhen China. Other products include the Kudos Squonk Mod and the Papua 100W mod.
On first glance this mod reminds me heavily of the Dovpo M VV II device.
The main similarity to the M VV is that this has been simplified to just a dial to control the output. Hippovape do say there is a chip installed so this is not a potentiometer style adjustment I don’t think.
It is not clear if the dial adjusts the Voltage or Wattage output – as sadly the details on the Hippovape (and therefore all the vendor sites) are pretty vague.
You can adjust the output between 10-245W / 1-8V.
To power the mod you will need 2×18650 batteries which are not included.
As mentioned there is no screen but there does appear to be some LED indicators which hopefully inform you of the battery capacity remaining and any fault conditions?
There are various circuit protections installed too:
- Low wattage protection
- Reverse polarity protection
- Overheat protection
- Short circuit protection
- 10 second cut off protection
- High / low resistance protection
Apparently the chip has a waterproof protection, a fast firing speed and output accuracy.
There are 2 colours to choose from: Black or Stainless Steel.
