Equaliser Neutron Tattoo Pen Review

Equaliser Neutron Tattoo Pen Review

Here we review the Equaliser Neutron 4mm stroke tattoo rotary/pen machine

The Equaliser Neutron is a wireless, pen-style tattoo machine with 2 removable batteries - so no more cables and power supplies!

Equaliser's wireless Neutron tattoo pen has an aluminium housing and features a clear digital display with three buttons for operating the machine. The digital display shows the voltage (V), battery level (%) and the time that has elapsed since switching on the machine (resets every time you switch the Neutron off).u

The Equaliser Neutron offers a voltage range of 5-12 V and adjustable in 0.1 V increments/decrements - 6-10 V is the recommended range.

This tattoo machine comes with an aluminium grip with a 32 mm diameter, as well as two additional non-slip silicone grips (32 and 35 mm). A charger is also included in the box that allows you to charge two batteries simultaneously.

The Equaliser Neutron has a 4.5 W motor, a 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0 mm stroke, direct drive, adjustable needle depth, and built-in Jump Start. This wireless tattoo pen comes with 2 removable batteries, so you can charge one while working with the other. The batteries offer up to 8 hours working time and will take around 2 hours to fully charge.

Compared to Equaliser's Wireless Pen V2, the Neutron has an updated Printed Circuit Board (PCB), which is now more stable and damage-resistant. In addition, the rotary machine now lies more firmly in your hand thanks to the revised shape of the grips.

I find the machine to be comfortable to hold and to use. I have the 4.2 stroke machine which is definitely better for lining or packing. I wouldn’t recommend the 4.2 stroke for shading especially if you are wanting to achieve smooth subtle tones. To access the battery you have to unscrew a tiny screw which I find to be quite fiddly.
