addsfit Review | Mini vs Max comparison
My addsfit review unit had some intensive use after its recent arrival as the mini is super-easy and handy to use. It’s way less than half the price of the popular Theragun models, it’s easy to use as a handheld device and I find it nicely complements my much larger Thumper Mini Pro (reviewed here).
It digs DEEP, where larger percussive massagers might struggle and it might save you a small fortune by avoiding all those physio visits.

addsfit Review Summary | Mini vs Max
, Thumper Mini Pro, Hyperice Hypervolt
- Upper ITB – easily gets to the (very painful) spot
- Much cheap than the competition
- Easy to use and transport
- Practical, lightweight design
- Really massages those deep spots
- Well-made. Quality that you wouldn’t be embarrassed about giving as a present to a loved one.
- Great for glutes – penetrates deeply
- Great for shoulders – lightweight and easily held in a difficult position
- You can use it whilst doing something else (watching Netflix 😉 )
- Only two replaceable heads
- Less suitable for larger areas eg the full ITB. Still works but would take longer than, say, Thumper Mini Pro
- I’m struggling…help me out here.
I love my Thumper Mini Pro and use it a lot. However, it’s a bit heavy for frequent, prolonged usage and doesn’t massage deeply enough. So I went in search of ‘something else’ and the addsfit mini seems a good value percussive massager that fills the gaps where my thumper struggles. As the following image shows, they are completely different beasts of a totally different scale.
addsfit Mini Opinion
I like it. I use it. My family likes it even more than I do! They use it in different bodily places to me but all the use cases we like boil down to LIGHTWEIGHT, EASY-TO-USE, DEEP/PRECISE MASSAGE OPTIONs.
addsfit Mini vs. addsfit Max
Here are the high-level specs comparing the two addsfit models. The main benefit of the MAX model is that there is a greater stroke force, though the mini is plenty painful enough for me. It also has a variety of accessory end pieces…I mostly only use the pointy one, so that’s of little interest to me. Against the greater stroke force and range of attachments would be a notably heavier and more expensive unit. I can’t see the benefit for me for the MAX model. If I got something bigger I would instead go for a much bigger, mains-powered Thumper Mini Pro because it has two heads to cover a larger area (but its relatively heavy).

|Adjustable Speed||9 Speeds||3 Speeds|

addsfit Mini Review – Other Points
It’s easy to use. Press and hold the button to turn it on or off, or just press the button to toggle between the 3-speed modes. If you want to change one of the accessory heads you just pull it out and push the other one in, they stay in firmly and need a little tug to get out.
It’s a newer USB-C charging cable (supplied)
