There’s really only one way to say this; if you want ‘delicious’, then you need to head over to Madvapes and check out their Innokin iTaste MVP 2.0. This is an upgrade to the original MVP vape which was considered by many in the industry as a best in class performer in its own right.
However, the new iTaste MVP v2.0 has set the bar even higher, hitting all the sweet spots not only in design, but also where it really counts; in the amount of vaping punch that it delivers right to the back of the throat.
In terms of performance and features, this is one e cig that lives up to its ‘taste it, love it’ motto, and is easily close to the best variable vaporizer in the mid-power range that we have tested yet. Hailed by some vaping enthusiasts as revolutionary for its time, this MVP version hits like a power house making it quite possibly the last and best variable voltage mod you are ever likely to own.
This is another winner for the crew at Innokin who have taken the variable voltage model one step closer to being the mod box of choice for users at any experience level.
This upgrade to the MVP electronic cigarette has added the much requested variable wattage to its functionality, and it has achieved this without losing any of the performance accuracy or battery life for which the iTaste MVP was known.
It has added features that now check resistance levels (ohms) and which give even more accurate battery readout than was available with the previous version.
You can still vape and charge with this model, and it can also act as a backup unit for charging external devices like your cell phone, iPod or iPad.
It is equipped to charge mini and micro USB as well as Apple devices with a 32 pin connection. The MVP 2 e cig comes with instruction manual, iClear 30 and picture card and outgoing charger.
Features of the iTaste MVP v2
The Innokin iTaste MVP v2.0 is available in 4 finishes;
• Carbon fiber
• Titanium blue – changes hue depending on the light at the time you are using it.
It is made from metal which ensures that it is solid while retaining its versatility.
In size, it is rectangular yet cleverly compact so that it easily fits within your hand and pocket.
Unlike version 1 which was shiny in coating, the MVP 2 ecig is in matte which wipes out those annoying finger marks. This model now has a raised firing button in place of the previous flat body control, and the beauty ring now lies against the body of the mod instead of overhanging so that it no longer snags on clothing or other material.
The final obvious feature that differs in this 2.0 vape is the bottom threading now accepts 510 and eGo threading parts instead of being made specifically for iClear clearomizers.
It’s impossible to run a complete iTaste MVP 2.0 review without listing the features that make this mod one of the most popular in its class for the modest price that you will pay.

How the iTaste MVP works
Navigation of the iTaste MVP 2.0 will feel a little different from version 1 if this is your first attempt at using a combined variable voltage/wattage mod device. It’s easy to pick up however and after a couple of uses will become very intuitive.
Here are the main things you need to know;
It is a 3 click on/click off system that shows the battery voltage as green between 3.8 and 4.2 when on, yellow when voltage is 3.6 to 3.7, and red for lower power.
The on/off fire button is located on the front of the mod for easy thumb placement. When you hold the fire button down once after you click it on it will activate the battery.
The bottom of the mod contains the ‘input’ port for charging your MVP. This is where you insert your micro USB connection. The output hole is for charging your other devices. Flip the switch to ‘on’ prior to attaching your device.
On the side of the mod is the menu and display screen which houses the voltage (U) and wattage (P) buttons.
- Pressing these together will display the battery life and the atomizer resistance.
- Pressing either button quickly shows the puff count.
- Pressing P alone and holding it will show the current wattage and last puff count.
- To increase the wattage, hold it down and then press it.
- You can increase wattage in half (W) increments.
- To decrease the wattage, repeat this action until it cycles back to the beginning.
- The same applies when pressing U to vary your voltage. Your (V) can be increased in 0.1 increments only.
The internal Lithium-ion polymer battery performance is extraordinary in supporting around 26 hours of constant use at 3.7 volts. This means that with heavy vaping, you can expect to receive up to 2 days usage without the need to re-charge it.
Output is also very consistent, delivering solidly when tested at various voltage and wattage settings and with atomizers up to the 3.0 ohms range.
Tanks & Cartomizers
Madvapes.com provides 2 iClear 16 tanks for vapor production. To fit smaller sized tanks to the unit, simply remove the beauty ring as we did in testing. If you would like to see exactly the MVP features, here is a link to over 14 minute video explaining everything for iTaste MVP features.

There are not too many areas in which we found the MVP 2 to disappoint. With that said, however, we can highlight some areas in which the device could fair better on its next upgrade;
- The P and U buttons have a slight rattleNo option to decrease (V) and (W) without cycling through the digits
- Fire button is at times slightly resistant
- Battery is not replaceable
