The IPV5 by Pioneer4you is perfect for advanced vapers who are looking for a powerful temperature control mod. It’s the next generation mod from the iPV series and has a much greater power ceiling in comparison to previous models. It also allows you to upgrade the firmware of the device via a USB port, keeping your device up-to-date with all future enhancements.
The IPV 5 comes with 1 mod, 1 Micro USB cord, and 1 instruction manual. It has a very sleek and smooth appearance, and is available in Black, Blue, Red, Silver, and White. It’s much smaller and lighter than other 200 Watt Temperature control mods I’ve tried, which is a great advantage. It can be a burden carrying around a big, heavy mod, but that’s not the case with the IPV5. I was surprised by how light and portable it is, and it fits perfectly in your hand. Another great feature is that the battery door is completely magnetic, making it really easy to change out the two 18650 batteries. The only downside to the magnetic door is that sliding the door up and down can become a habit if you like fidgeting with your device.

Although the device is compact, the OLED screen on the front is crystal clear and easy to read. It’s also much brighter than other devices, making it easy to read even in direct sunlight. The display shows you the output wattage, the output voltage, the battery level, the atomizer resistance, and the temperature setting if you’re in temperature control mode. The IPV5 also features 5 different memory modes so you can program the device exactly to your liking. The controls on the device can be somewhat confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s very easy to change modes and settings.
The device itself is extremely powerful, with an output wattage range of 10-200 Watts and a Joule output range of 10-20 Joules. It also has a broad temperature control range of 212 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has many safety features, including: low voltage protection, low resistance protection, high input voltage warning, short-circuit operation, and reverse battery protection warnings.
To turn it on and off, press the power button 5 times. To change between the different modes, click the power button 5 times while the system is on. This will allow you to access the main menu that gives you a choice of: System On, Power Mode, and Exit. To set the device to variable wattage mode, select “Mode Power” and press the power button. Then press either the up or down buttons to exit to the main screen. You can then use the up and down buttons to adjust the output wattage. To set the device to temperature control mode, select “Mode Joule”, and press the power button.
From here, you can select between Fahrenheight and Celsius by pressing the up and down buttons, where you can then set the temperature of the device. Once you’ve selected your desired temperature, you can choose the coil type that you are using. The IPV 5 allows you to choose between nickel, titanium, stainless steel, SX Pure, and Manual Temperature control modes. Choosing the manual mode allows you to use other types of coils that are supported by temperature control.
Overall, the IPV5 is a reliable device that allows you to vape at a variety of different settings. The device is light-weight and fits perfectly in your hand, making it a lot more portable than other mods we’ve tried. It gives off a great vapor payoff, especially since it only takes 2 batteries. Also, the memory functions allow you to switch between different settings quickly and easily, which is a great feature. For the price point, this device is definitely a steal, especially since you can upgrade the firmware with the latest technology. The IPV5 is a great device for advanced vapers looking for an affordable, yet powerful mod.
