Running for up to 2.5 hours compared to around 2 hours for its competitor, the Hypervolt GO has the upper hand when it comes to battery life. That said, considering that each treatment session lasts only a few minutes, both models will last for several days on a single charge.

Conclusion: Hypervolt GO vs Theragun mini 2.0

As expected, the Hypervolt GO could not keep up with its more recently released competitor in most categories. That said, it features a better battery life, operates at a slightly lower noise level, and is obviously the more budget-friendly option of the two.

The winner of this comparison, however, is undoubtedly the Theragun mini 2.0. It has both a higher amplitude and stall force. On top of that, it includes an addition massage head, ships with a case for safe transport and convenient storage, and is more lightweight and compact.
