Kraftgun is a device that has gained a lot of attention lately through their aggressive social media marketing tactics. This is a device we came across on Instagram repeatedly so we had to check it out. It is currently the only device listed on the companies website, but they’ve certainly made a splash quickly with their device. Below we take a look at some of the features of the Kraftgun.
What Are The Specifications of the Kraftgun?
The Kraftgun is marketed as noise-free, which is close but not necessarily the case. While it is a quite device, it certainly does make some noise – registering in around 65 DB. The device has a 16 mm amplitude with a stall force of 66 pounds. The noise and power of this device are both thanks to the 24V brushless motor, which operates at 3 different speeds of 30 Hz, 35 Hz, and 40 Hz that range from 1,800 percussions per minute up to 2,400 percussions per minute. The device weighs just 2.2 pounds, making it one of the lighter massage guns we’ve tried recently. The Kraftgun does come with an adjustable arm, which adjusts to 3 different angles, allowing you to reach all areas of your back on your own.
How Loud Is The Kraftgun?
The Kraftgun is not the loudest, but it is also not the quietest. Advertised as noise-free, it produces a noise in the 65 DB range, which is about halfway between the sound of a vacuum cleaner and a normal conversation. While it is a very quite massager, there are quieter devices that can be found if noise while using it is a large concern.
What Is The Stall Force Of The Kraftgun?
Kraftgun has a stall force of 66 pounds. If you’re not sure what stall force is, check our article on it here. This is on the higher end of massagers on the market in terms of stall force and allows for a fairly aggressive massage without the device stalling. If an aggressive massage is not something the user is looking for, than you may not need be concerned with the stall force of the Kraftgun, but be assured the multi-speed device should still meet your needs.
How Long Does The Kraftgun Battery Last?
The Kraftgun is advertised to last between 6-7 hours dependent on the speed setting and pressure being applied. More realistically, the device has an average battery life of between 3-4 hours of regular use. It is recommended that all users fully charge the non-removable battery before their first use.
What Is Included With The Kraftgun?
- Kraftgun massage gun
- Charging cord and wall plug
- 4 attachment heads
- Zippered case for attachment heads
- Zippered case for device and all accessories listed above
How Portable Is The Kraftgun?
The Kraftgun is just as portable as most other massage guns. It comes with it’s own zippered carrying case with a handle, so taking it to the gym or the office is very convenient. It only weighs 2.2 pounds so any active individual should not have any issue maneuvering it as they massage all parts of their body.

Criticisms Of The Kraftgun
No massage gun is perfect, and neither is the Kraftgun. While it is certainly an impressive device, there are a few criticisms we would provide. The non-removable battery is a drawback for us as it limits the continuous usage life of the device. By that we mean, as soon as the device dies, it needs to sit on the charger until the battery is full again. If it had a removable battery, a fully charged battery could be swapped out for a dead one and use could continue immediately. A removable battery is also more ideal for air-travel and TSA compliance as users would not need to take the full device onto the plane with them and would be able to check it in their below cabin luggage. Two other minor criticisms would be the different attachments are a bit difficult to pull out and the button to adjust the angle of the device is a bit cumbersome and not as seamless as it could be.
Buyers be aware, some additional criticisms of Kraftgun can be attributed to their customer service and delays in shipping times. Around the holiday season, the company began to experience an influx of orders, which resulted in several shipping delays. Many customers have reported on their social media pages waiting up to 8 weeks for delivery.

What’s up everybody? This is the Kraft massage gun and we’re going to take a look at it today.Best Massage Tech’s YouTube Channel
So, if you’re like me, you might not have heard of this device until you were scrolling through Instagram one day and you started seeing ads for it, and then you started seeing ads for it on Facebook, and then you saw more ads for it on Instagram. This company kind of popped up onto the scene, obviously doing a lot of social media marketing. Like any other device, when I come across a new one, I want to check it out for everybody just to make sure we’re stacking it up against the rest of them in the market.
So, the device does have a pretty high stall force. I’m going to go ahead and turn it on. The stall force on this is 66 pounds. So, it’s right up there with some of the Theragun models and the Hypervolt. You’ll see there, it’s pretty hard to stop. That was quite a bit of force. It does turn off once it stops. Turn it back on here.
It is a multi-speed device, so there’s three speeds. It lights up in blue on the the back. The lowest speed here is 1,800 percussions per minute. The second speed is 2,100 percussions per minute and the last speed is 2,400 percussions per minute. As this is percussing, it does have an amplitude of 16 millimeters. That is the same as the Theragun G3Pro
It does come with four different attachments. The attachments come in their own carrying case, which is nice. On it right here, I have the round attachment. It also comes with a flat attachment. What they call the spinal attachment essentially is just your fork, and then what they call the precision point, which is just a cone if you’re comparing it to some of those other massage guns that you might’ve heard of.
It is an adjustable device, so you’ll see it here at 90 degrees. Also, has two other angles that it adjusts to. Little one there, 45 degrees, up high, so three different angles. The battery on this device, it is not removable. It is a 2000 milliamp 24 volt battery. They say that on the low speed, the battery can last six to seven hours. I’ve got to be honest, I highly doubt that, but maybe if they say it does, maybe it does, but they say in the high speed it’s going to last around three to four hours. So, you’re looking at probably a three to four hour average on a typical use. Most users aren’t going to use it on just one speed. They claim you can use it for 21 days at 20 minutes a time. I’m assuming again, that’s on that low speed. So if that’s true, that’s really impressive, but just compared to what I’ve seen with other massage guns with similar batteries, I’d say it’s probably a little bit lower than that, but we’ll go with what they say.
In terms of noise, you’re looking at the low end at 60 decibels, the high end around 70 decibels. Again, 60 decibels, that’s about the noise that an air conditioner makes from a hundred feet away. The same amount of noise level. You’re not going to distract anybody too much with this, but it is a little bit louder than something like the Hypervolt, so not the quietest.
It’s pretty light, 2.2 pounds. The battery is definitely in the front part. This just seems like a plastic handle, so it is a little bit off-centered in the weight, very front end or top head and heavy. It does come with a zippered case branded there. It does come with a charger. Device is a pretty nice one. Price point is up there. You can only buy it at getkraft.co. So, if you are interested in this device, go ahead and check it out, but pretty impressed with it, and maybe you’ll think of me next time you’re going through Instagram and this ad comes up, but that’s a review.
