TimTam Power Massager v1.5 Deep Tissue Massage Gun

Key Specs:

  • Up to 2000 strokes per minute
  • 90-degree articulating head
  • 12-volt lithium-ion battery
  • 4.2 pounds


The TimTam Powermaster V1.5 is the second generation of this device. It includes all of the features that made the original a top seller, with the addition of a patent-pending threaded shaft to improve durability and overall performance.


The TimTam Powermaster delivers an effective massage experience. With its 12-volt battery and 2000 stroke per minute capability, it does a good job of working out those knotty tension points and tight muscles. Its ergonomic design means that it isn’t cumbersome on your hand and shouldn’t lead to undue strain on the wrist and forearm. In fact, you don’t really have to apply any force at all because the massager does all the work for you. The 26mm stroke length of the head of this massager will get right into your muscles to work on that nagging deep-seated pain.

Spending just 5 minutes per day using the TimTam massager is the equivalent of using a foam roller or professional masseuse for 30 minutes.

Build Quality

The TimTam Massage Gun is a very sturdily designed unit. In fact, it looks and handles just like a power tool. The hard molded plastic shell provides plenty of protection for the inner workings, giving you the confidence that it will keep on working for you despite the inevitable knocks and drops that it will experience.

Improvements over Original

In addition to the patent-pending threaded shaft, the new version of the TimTam massager provides you with double the battery life of the original. You now get a full sixty minutes of battery life off of a single charge. With a max volume of 25 decibels, it is also considerably quieter than its predecessor.

One-Touch Trigger

The TimTam massager provides you with a responsive one-touch trigger that makes it easy to operate. Just a single depression of your finger and you’re ready to go!

90-degree Articulation

This massager provides you with the ultimate in user mobility thanks to its amazing 90-degree head articulation. This allows you to adjust the head to the precise angle that you need in order to get to the area of your body that needs relief. This is also a great feature for therapists who need to provide a precise solution for their client’s massage needs.

Endorsed by Top Athletes

The TimTam Powermaster has the endorsement of such top-level athletes as Kelly Starret, George St. Pierre and Muay Thai champ Firas Zahabi.

Anti-Bacterial Plastics

This product is constructed from anti-bacterial plastics. This helps to protect you from germs and cross-contamination.

Complete Portability

The TimTam massager is very travel-friendly. It weighs in at just 2.2 pounds, is cordless and comes with a handy carry case.

  • Charger
  • Round massage tip

There are other attachments that can be fitted to the head of the TimTam massager. These include a hot attachment, cold attachment, and a blade-shaped design that they are calling the Recovery Blade. However, these items will have to be purchased separately.

Tim Tam VS Theragun

Theragun G3PRO Percussive Therapy Device, Handheld Deep Tissue Professional Massager 50% Quieter than G2PRO Muscle Stimulator For Pain Relief, Recovery, Enhance Performance & Energize The Body

The TimTam and the Theragun are about the same size, shape, and design. The TimTam is considerably less expensive and yet offers quite a comparable massaging experience. The patented threaded accessory attachment is another advantage that the TimTam has over the Theragun. You also get better portability with the TimTam.

Then again, the Theragun has a more aesthetically appealing design and is quieter to operate. It also provides you with four placement angles. Overall, however, we believe that the TimTam represents better value for money.

Tim Tam VS Hypervolt

2019 New Hypervolt Featuring Quiet Glide Technology - Handheld Percussion Massage Device

The TimTam provides you with slightly more power than the Hypervolt. However, with the TimTam you get just one-speed setting compared to three on the Hypervolt. The TimTam has a better ergonomic design and comes with an adjustable shaft. Also, you do not get a carry case with the Hypervolt, but you do get more attachments.

Because it is a quieter massager with options for lower intensity massage, we would have to opt for the Hypervolt over the TimTam massager if that is what you are looking for.

Tim Tam VS Kraft Massage Gun

Kraft Massage Gun

The Kraft Massage Gun is not as powerful or as penetrative as the TimTam. It features a max stroke depth of 16mm, which is half that of the TimTam, meaning that you will not be able to get as deeply into the muscle fiber with this machine. It is also slightly noisier than the TimTam. The battery on the Kraft is not removable but will last for 3.5 hours compared with one hour. Finally, the Kraft is considerably cheaper than the TimTam.

We believe that the extra money needed to buy the TimTam is a good investment as it offers superior depth, strength and is a quieter unit to operate.

What Others are Saying

There are hundreds of reviews for the TimTam massager online. The vast majority of them are positive, with many of those fairly glowing in their praise for this product. Most commonly mentioned are the effectiveness of reaching deep pain areas and the adjustability to reach hard to get to areas. The few negative comments are mainly with regard to the lack of accessories included with your purchase and the single-speed setting.

Final Thoughts

The TimTam Powermaster is a well designed, powerful and adjustable massage gun that does an effective job of relieving and relaxing your muscles. It only has one speed and you’ll have to buy extra massage heads, but still, this is one of the best portable percussion massage guns that are currently available.
