Battery

With a battery life of up to 8 hours, the Ekrin Kestrel not only comfortably bests the Hypervolt 2 Pro, but also every other device on the market that we have come across so far. That said, even 3 hours are enough for the massager to last for several days on a single charge.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Ekrin Kestrel vs Hypervolt 2 Pro comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of the two massage guns. At 2.2 lbs, the Ekrin Kestrel is a little lighter and also takes up slightly less space overall in your gym bag.

2.2 lbs, 9.5 x 7.4 x 2.5 in

2.6 lbs, 8.0 x 2.5 x 10.4 in

Conclusion: Ekrin Kestrel vs Hypervolt 2 Pro

With an advantage in both amplitude and stall force, the Hypervolt 2 Pro came out on top in two important categories. In fact, it is powerful enough to be used by professional sports leagues and athletes, including NFL superstars Patrick Mahomes and Christian McCaffrey.

If you are willing to miss out on a little bit of stroke length and power, however, the Ekrin Kestrel will pay you back with outstanding battery life and a lower noise level. We also like the additional massage head and travel case, as well as the lifetime warranty.
