Mechanical mods are really popular, despite their high price tags. Because of their excellent build quality and performance, expert e-cig smokers are finding that they’re willing to invest in mech mods that will take their smoking experience to a new level.
What you will probably notice first when you take the Grand Vapor Private V2 out of its packaging is how surprisingly small yet heavy it is. This is basically a telescoping product that lets you run a variety of battery configurations, from 18350 and 18490 to 18650.
This little device is great for stealth vaping, and we had a great time checking out its many features. Continue reading to see our review of this product and to determine if it would be the right fit for you and your e-cig smoking needs.

The Grand Vapor Private V2 actually consists of five pieces. There are the bottom and top caps, a middle tube, and two tubes that are telescoping. The top cap is made of stainless steel, while the bottom cap is made of brass along with a locking ring that is made of stainless steel. This locking ring, too, has reverse threading, making locking the switch easy, thereby preventing accidentally firing it when it is not being used. And the middle tube, too, is made of durable and long lasting stainless steel, even though the telescoping tubes are made of brass, as is the firing button—which also sports an adjustable throw—on the bottom.
In addition to being a really attractive product, this mech mod also fits great in your hand. It is clear that a lot of thought went into the aesthetics as well as the engineering of this product to make it feel and operate optimally. Simply holding it makes you realise that this is not a cheap item at all, but rather one that will last a long time.
Giving It a Test Run
In order to test the Grand Vapor Private V2, we first needed to assemble it when we took it out of the box. Thankfully, this process went smoothly and was surprisingly easy. All you have to do is thread each telescoping tube onto the middle tube. Then you simply attach the bottom cap. Next, we were able to easily drop the battery into the device before attaching the top cap. Everything should fit snugly based upon the battery that you are using and its size. Finally, add the atomiser that you wish to use, unscrew the device’s locking ring, depress the firing button on the bottom, and begin inhaling the delicious vape.
Whenever we used this device, we realised that there isn’t any voltage drop from its battery after you fire it up. If you can pair this device with a high quality RBA/RDA, you will definitely get incredibly outstanding flavour and performance that is beyond what you have experienced with other devices that are currently on the market.
The threads and the device’s 510-connection are both very smooth, regardless of what atomiser we tried with it. Plus, because it is a telescoping device, you can also enjoy the use of various battery configurations. For example, you can try an 18350 to really go into stealth e-cig smoking mode.
Overall, the performance of the Grand Vapor Private V2 was solid, and we did not have any complaints about it. The only drawbacks that we encountered had to do with price and a minor detail about its appearance. Basically, you should expect to pay more for such a solid item, as it does have a higher than average price tag at the moment. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that your investment will indeed be a wise one if you take care of this product and you use it appropriately. But we also found that, after using the device regularly, the brass began to darken, so you may want to purchase a kit to polish it regularly and keep it looking like new. This may not be a big concern for some people, but we felt it was worth noting.
Despite how much we like this device, though, it may not be appropriate for beginners or for those who are on a tight budget, so you may need to get used to using one or simply save up some extra cash before splurging on it.
