Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Dovpo was considered in the West as a second-rate brand, but lately, the small manufacturer offers us products that are efficient, original and rather cheap. And my faith, it gave him a lot of visibility.
The Punisher is there to fuel this rise in power. Dovpo presents it as the most compact 21700 compatible box on the market. Its chipset house offers a wide choice of possibilities.
Able to reach the 90W, it seems to have a lot of assets to make a good place in this category.
At 69 €, we are on a mid-range that is close to the upper range.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The Punisher 90 is compact, I do not know if it is the most compact boxes that accept the 21700 but it is well in this area. In addition to being a reasonable size, the zinc alloy allows it to be rather light.
In terms of design, it's sober, we are on a modern style of great neutrality. The block is dressed with soft and discreet lines, strangely this drawing evokes me the universe of the modern firearms.
The coating is soft type and really pleasant to the touch and, in addition, it is non-slip. At first glance, the work seems good quality but I must still warn you that this type of painting is often fragile.
We find, on one of the slices, the "package" screen / commands. The switch is a metal trapeze, it is placed near the top-cap. It is perfectly adjusted and is pleasant to use.
Just below, there is a screen of sufficient size to be perfectly legible.
To finish this face, we note on the lower part two small trapezes instead of +/- buttons but a small square punctuates this first part, this final point is none other than the menu button. They are all three metal, well adjusted too and "clicky" as it should.
On the top-cap, there is a stainless steel plate that receives the port 510, it can easily accommodate an atomizer 25 mm.
The two sides are identical, one wave goes along the length, one distinguishes three small gills. A small relief tells us the limit with the back cover. One thing differentiates them, on one side we find, marked in white, the name of the box and the other the micro-USB port.
The back cover is not bulging, it's a half hexagon if I can say so. It is held in place by two magnets and holds perfectly. The compartment that it reveals is very clean, we find there during the first unpacking the adapter for the battery 18650.
A realization that seems neat, the box is nice and all seems consistent with the tariff.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
Our Punisher 90 has a built-in chipset that can operate in By-pass, Variable Power, Temperature Control and TCR modes. In short, all the paraphernalia of the electronic box in the shot.
The Bypass and VW modes will work with resistors whose value will be between 0.08 and 3.5Ω.
For temperature control modes, this same value will be between 0.03 and 3Ω. For compatible cables, you have the right to the usual trio SS, Ni, Ti.
No preheat function or calibration of his puff, the box is in the simple. We can note however the presence of a counter of puffs and also a chronopuff (I find this name more nice).
The Punisher is powered by a simple battery that will be, according to your desires and needs, a 21700, 20700 or 18650 that is used with the help of the adapter provided.
A small electronic box complete but affordable by its relative simplicity.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
On the sheath that surrounds the box, there is a representation of the plasticized sticker box. It is "posed" on a background all shades of blue on which we distinguish curved lines declined in a gradient of blue. The name of the box, written in white, stands out well from the set. Then, in a white rectangle very stretched, we find the list of compatible batteries. The Dovpo brand is found in one of the top corners and stands out with its silver treatment.
The box is a uniform blue, the lid is lifted with a small cloth tab. Inside, there is our box in which hides the 18650 adapter, a USB cable and a notice in English.
The presentation is correct in relation to the price, but we can not say that it is really original.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
A perfect box to take a ride. Indeed, it is quite compact and its weight is very reasonable. With an 18650 battery, the autonomy is correct and the electronics are handled well. Of course, using an 21700 will increase battery life and CDM.
As for the orders, they are very simple:
5 clicks to wake our Punisher, buttons +/- are used to change the value of the power or the temperature but also to travel in the menu that is reached very simply by pressing the button closest to the base. The latter will also serve to validate your choices.
The most "complex" manipulation is perhaps the one that allows you to lock the controls, you have to press the "menu" and - button simultaneously.
The battery change is easy too, the back cover is removed without difficulty and access is very comfortable.
In terms of vape, the chipset does a good job, the vape is quite frank, we are not on a DNA or a Yihi but frankly, for the price, we have the right to an electronics that runs very well.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
Dovpo is obviously on a good start, this brand is currently proposing achievements that are winning commercial success. If the MVV 280 shone by its originality, the Punisher, it is in the discreet, even the stealth. Its contained size, its black color and its discreet lines, give it a sober and pleasant physique.
Electronics is not left out, it is efficient, powerful and above all very easy to use. Even if the record is not translated, it is easily found when you have a first experience on this type of material.
So I will not tell you that it is to fall and that is not what seduced me. What allows him to reach the TOP mod is its good value for money / vape and its practical aspects for everyday life.
A really nice box that we should find in a lot of hands.
