Comparison: Kraftgun Force vs Hypervolt Plus

Both devices have an amplitude of 14 mm, meaning the massage head travels a distance of 14 mm into your muscles. This makes both the Kraftgun Force and the Hypervolt Plus suitable for a percussive massage experience.

Force

Just like you would expect from the product name, Kraftgun made its latest massage gun a powerful one. With a stall force of around 60 lbs, it comfortably beats the Hypervolt Plus in this category. That said, for most users, 45 lbs should still be more than enough.

Frequency & Speed Levels

While both devices have the same amount of speed levels, the Hypervolt Plus does have a wider range of percussions per minute (ppm) and at up to 3,200 is also able to generate significantly more ppm than the Kraftgun Force.

Connectivity

Additionally, the Hypervolt Plus (and the original Hypervolt) has the ability to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. This allows you to control the frequency through the Hyperice app and follow recovery routines created by health experts and professional athletes.

Battery

Despite its clearly higher stall force, the Samsung battery inside the Kraftgun Force provides enough power for up to 3.5 hours before it runs out of juice. Compare that to the Hypervolt Plus with a battery life of around 2.5 hours.

Up to 2.5 hours

Noise

Rather surprisingly, the Kraftgun Force is also the quieter of the two massage guns with a noise level of around 65 decibels (dB). Admittedly, you probably won’t hear the difference, but it is still an impressive feat considering how much more powerful the device is.

Around 65 dB

Around 70 dB

Attachments & Accessoires

With five interchangeable head attachments compared to four, the Hypervolt Plus comes out on top in this round of our Kraftgun vs Hypervolt comparison. More massage heads allow you to better personalize the massage experience depending on the muscle area you are targeting.

Winner: Hypervolt Plus

4 massage heads

Weight & Dimensions

The Kraftgun Force is the better choice for traveling with a weight of just 2.2 lbs compared to 3.0 lbs for the Hypervolt Plus. Being the more powerful device and having a better battery but still being so lightweight makes the win for the Kraftgun in this category all the more impressive.

Winner: Kraftgun Force

3.0 lbs, 9.3 x 6.5 x 2.5 in

Conclusion: Kraftgun Force vs Hypervolt Plus

Same amplitude, higher stall force, and better battery life – the Kraftgun Force can definitely keep up with the Hypervolt Plus. Unfortunately, this is not the case when it comes to shipping times and customer service, with horror stories all over the internet.

We can therefore only advise you to buy your Kraftgun on Amazon or from other reputable retailers to save yourself a lot of headaches – because unlike the massage gun itself, we cannot recommend the business practices of the company behind it.

While the Hypervolt Plus does have worse battery life and less maximum stall force, it is still powerful enough for professional athletes including LeBron James, Patrick Mahomes, and Fernando Tatís Jr. Its connectivity feature allows you to follow the exact recovery routines those guys use. Finally, at an SRP of $399, it is also the cheaper of the two options.
