Force

With a brushless motor that only reaches its limits at around 40 lbs of resistance, the Hypervolt Go 2 has a slightly higher stall force than the Ekrin Bantam. That said, both are exceptionally powerful for their size and can even compete with several bigger devices in this category.

Frequency & Speed Levels

The Ekrin Bantam and Hypervolt Go 2 allow you to choose between three different speed settings. While the maximum amount of percussions per minute (ppm) is 3,200 each, the Ekrin Bantam gives you slightly more room on the lower end:

  • Level 1: 2,000 ppm
  • Level 2: 2,600 ppm

Battery

A Lithium-ion battery from Samsung powers the Ekrin Bantam for up to 6 hours, double the amount of the Hypervolt Go 2. But with each treatment session not taking more than a few minutes, both devices should last for several days on a single charge.

Winner: Ekrin Bantam

Up to 6 hours

Up to 3 hours

Noise

Considering that the Hypervolt Go 2 is the more powerful device of the two, it comes as to no surprise that it operates at a slightly higher noise level when set to the highest speed setting. However, the difference is so small that you most likely won’t be able to tell a difference.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Ekrin Bantam vs Hypervolt Go 2 comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of the two devices. Although the Ekrin Bantam is both lighter and smaller, you should still be able to find a place for the Hypervolt Go 2 in your bag.

Conclusion: Ekrin Bantam vs Hypervolt Go 2

Just like in an earlier comparison against the original Hypervolt GO, we were surprised by how well the Ekrin Bantam performed against a well-known competitor. With great battery life, four head attachments and a travel case, it is a great choice if you are looking for a treatment on-the-go.

The Hypervolt Go 2, on the other hand, should be your pick if you are looking for the more powerful device. In fact, it is powerful enough to compete with a lot of the bigger models on the market and is trusted by several professional athletes such as surfer-legend Kelly Slater.
