How Does it Look?

While the iPV 2S looks similar to its predecessor, there are a few changes like we mentioned in the opening.

The iPV 2S has smoother rounded edges and the buttons which are recessed and much more ‘clicky’ to the touch.

The colors are black and white and the while there aren’t a lot of changes to the look other than these two things, they’re still nice changes.

There is a touch sensor on the top, with a USB port and vent holes on the bottom.

On the side, there are three buttons and a display. It’s made out of aluminum and feels pretty lightweight and comfortable to use.


The threading is a 510 connection which of course, we’d be surprised if it was anything else.

Obviously, this just means that you can use all of your favorite tanks and when is that ever a bad thing?


The battery is an 18650 and the iPV 2S can be charged via the USB cable that is provided.

To remove the battery you simply unscrew the back two screws and replace it when needed. There are quite a few batteries that are recommended for this device such as:

It also has a nice power saving feature where the display will dim after a few seconds and then shuts off after one minute.

Protection Features

There are a few protection features built in to the iPV 2S which are helpful including:

  • Reverse Polarity Protection
  • Output Short Protection
  • Low Resistance Protection

This box mod has quite a few safety features but it is important to know what you’re doing.

How to Use the iPV 2S

To use the iPV 2S, simply hit the + button to go to the preset you want (M1, M2, etc), then use the minus ( – ) button to start the move to your desired wattage (you can still move up, but you have to start with the minus button at first.

Once there, hit the fire button and it will save.

With a few simple clicks you can easily adjust the wattage output from 7.0W to 60.0W in 0.1 increments to customize your desired vapor production, throat hit, and taste.

Here are a couple of our favorite tanks that you will find compatible with the iPV 2S to give you unlimited power vapes and flavor.

  • Kanger Aerotank Turbo. The newest member of the Kanger Aerotank family features not just one but two dual coils. This gives you a total of four coils for maximum flavor and vapor production. This clearomizers uses two 1.8 ohm dual coils, which means the resistance is actually 0.9 sub ohm.
