HyperIce HyperVolt: An Effective Percussion Massager

Recently, I tried the Theragun massager to help with sore muscles and sciatica. Then, someone brought the HyperIce Hypervolt into our office so I had to also give it a try to see how it performed. Here’s my review of the HyperIce Hypervolt, which is also a percussion massager.

About the HyperIce HyperVolt

HyperIce HyperVolt is a handheld massager that is used to activate, soothe, or loosen muscles due to exercise, injury, or the everyday life of tech workers who sit too long at their desks. The intent is to alleviate stiffness and soreness while increasing a person’s range of motion and circulation.

How the HyperIce HyperVolt Works

The HyperIce HyperVolt has a powerful high-torque motor. It offers Quiet Glide™ technology, which keeps it operating at a much quieter level than the average handheld massager. The massager uses percussion therapy. The therapy focuses on continually hitting a certain area of the body to effectively target that muscle and loosen it.

The Hypervolt has a hard plastic exterior with a removable battery. It features a medium ball head for whole body use and large muscle groups. The dampener is for whole body use, particularly legs, chest, hips, and butt. The bullet attachment should be used on trigger points like the ankles, hands, and feet. The fork is an attachment that focuses on the feet and scapula.

Why I Like the HyperVolt

This is a quiet, lightweight handheld massager that has a variety of attachments to use for different parts of the body. It’s easy to use and take with you wherever you go.

One of the best features is its built-in pressure sensor technology. This provides visual feedback to tell you if you are using it correctly and the type of effect it has on your muscles.

The battery lasts up to three hours on a charge, which is an hour longer than the Theragun. There is a helpful LED light that also lets you know when the battery is ready for recharging. HyperIce HyperVolt Massaager

HyperVolt Improvements

The cons with this percussion massager include its bulky design and non-adjustable angle. It also doesn’t have a travel bag as the Theragun provides. Although it’s cheaper than the Theragun by about $50, but it’s still an expensive investment for the average person.

In the Box

You get the massager, an applicator set, wall charger, and battery.

Where to Buy the HyperVolt

Priced at $349, you can buy the HyperVolt from the company’s website. Other retailers include Rogue Fitness, Amazon, and Best Buy.

Overall Thoughts

I enjoyed using this percussion massager and felt like it did work well. However, I’m keeping my Theragun because it had more attachments and accessories and a travel bag. In terms of massage, I felt like the Theragun also did a better job of going deeper into my muscles and was a lifesaver for my sciatica.

If I hadn’t already purchased the Theragun, I probably would have tried this one and liked the results. For others in the office, including my colleague who owns it, there was unanimous agreement that it provided relief from soreness, spasms, and muscular stiffness.
