About this deal
For starters, the stall force is about 25lbs. At least that’s how it felt to us (Renpho does’t list it anywhere). The amplitude is 9mm, which is reasonable for a mini massage gun because most range between 6-9mm. It has 1800-3000 percussions per minute. You get an excellent choice of attachments (there are six to choose from), and each one fits in easily with a pushing/twisting action. They stay firmly in place, even on higher power settings, but are easily removed when you're done. The HoMedics Pro Physio Massage Gun has a runtime of around five hours, or three and a half if you're using the heated function.
Slightly bigger, yet still very compact ones. We call them small massage guns instead of mini. Example devices Hypervolt Go 2, Renpho R3, or Taotronics PCA004. We would recommend this for people who want to have a massage gun that can relieve slight pain in muscles, break lactic acid build-up, or just get a much needed session after a long day at the office. You’ll find the very reasonable stall force quite useful (we estimate it at upper 20s lbs, if not 30lbs.) So even if you’re not the sporty type, a massage gun can do wonders for your physical and mental health, and even help you wind down for a good night’s sleep.In fact, the longer the stroke (amplitude), the slower device will percuss. For example the Theragun Mini may have only 2400rpms but it makes up for the reduced speed with a 12mm long stroke. On the other hand, Ekrin Bantam has ~20% less amplitude, but revs up to 3200rpms – a whooping 800rpm difference.
Not really a unique design – tons of guns look the same i.e. it borrows a leaf from Ekrin’s design book as far as the ergonomics go. The full-sized massage guns will still give you all of these, or perhaps even better, but the important thing here is the portability the little percussive devices offer you instead. The Power Plate Mini+ ranks highly in our best massage gun list thanks to its sheer convenience. It's one of the smallest guns we've tested, but its highest power settings still deliver a powerful massage that'll really help loosen tense muscles.Here’s a sneak peek into 5 of the recommended mini guns after our testing, along with the two previous generation guns, which we think you should avoid.
By now you must have noticed that both these household names are missing from our list. Don’t they stand a chance at all? Just the one attachment (ball). This doesn’t give you many options unless you have a bigger Theragun with more attachments, or the new mini 2.0. If you’re after a small massage gun that still offers versatility, consider this fuss-friendly Boots offering. There are three speed settings and four interchangeable heads (a ball, fork, bullet and flat head) for alleviating aches and pains, whether you need some post-exercise relief or you’ve been hunched over your desk for too long.Unlike the Theragun mini, we didn’t have any mixed feelings with this one. It doesn’t have any clear advantage(s) over the others. At least the Theragun gave us the unique design and a 12mm amplitude. We’ll share some points about how we feel: Number of attachments: One or two attachments on any device just isn’t enough for us. Get a device that has at least 4 attachments. This gives you more options to massage different parts of the body. Just because a gun has more hits per minute doesn’t mean it’s the most effective, at least not always. This is because sometimes the manufacturer may choose amplitude over percussion range. In that case the device isn’t hitting faster, but hits deeper.
