Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jayhawk714 So far so good!
So far I am impressed with the Preval prayer Val-Pack. This sprayer val-pac kit comes with the Preval sprayer, Universal V-Grip, that will attach to any spray can, 3 power units, 5- 6 oz glass touch up jars, 4 - 6 oz plastic touch up jars, 4 - 3 oz plastic touch up jars, 4 - short dip-tubes, 8 - kosmos's, 8 - bottle lids and 16 - long dip tubes. Only gave 4 stars for value because not knowing how long a power unit will last. The sprayer is very easy to use and will be a big help in my wood working projects.

The kit includes: (5) 6 ounce glass jars with both millimeter and ounce markings to measure whatever you are spraying, (4) disposable 6 ounce plastic jars, (4) 3 ounce plastic jars with millimeter and ounce markings, (3) 1.94 ounce portable-disposable aerosol cans with no compressor needed, also includes dip tubes, nozzles, and lids as well as a V grip trigger that turns portable cans into a spray gun.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoJo Not a very good product
I was really looking forward to using this sprayer on some projects that I've been putting off because regular spray paint colors were not what I wanted.
I read the instructions (the box that the sprayer comes in is where you will find the directions and you need to disassemble the box to read them) and followed the steps exactly as stated. I strained the paint (latex exterior) into the included bottle and mixed with a little water to thin it out. I then removed the filter at the end of the straw as directed when using latex paint and inserted the sprayer on the bottle.
I aimed the sprayer at a test piece of wood at an upright angle (not to exceed 45 degrees as instructed) and only air came out. I kept spraying according to the instructions to allow sufficient time for paint to work its way up the straw. Still nothing. I held my finger over the spray nozzle and pushed down to clear out any clogs that may have developed and still only got air.
I'm disappointed in this product because I could have finished the project with a can of spray paint in the time it's taken me to try to troubleshoot my issues.
After 30 minutes of messing around with this, I decided to give up. I gave 3 stars for overall quality of this product because it did contain nice glass and plastic containers for storage of "touch-up" paints and I gave it 2 stars for value because it's an expensive kit for a bunch of storage containers. My overall rating was a 1 because I just couldn't get it to work. I read reviews where others really liked this kit, but most of the reviews I read were negative.
Perhaps an online product video on the Home Depot website would be helpful or better instructions within the kit itself. Trust me, I really wanted this to work and wanted to be able to give this product a good rating but it just didn't work at all for me. Hopefully, the manufacturer will improve upon this product in the near future because the concept is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MIguelAngel Excellent, good value, every accessory you need
Eco friendly is part of what got my attention about this product. I used it in combination with the vfan pro pack and was able to paint my bike spokes, since they are small i was able to paint them easily and effectively. The kit comes with everything needed to paint just about everything. I also painted a fountain and it came out great, very easy to use. no mess and i was able to leave the paint in the cans for future use. it is easy to setup and to clean. it comes well packaged and overall is of good quality. I am very happy with the outcome of my projects. Cant wait until the summer so I can paint some more.
I feel like a pro now.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fxp1 Another way to spray paint
Preval Sprayer Val-Pack Kit is a complete kit that provides everything to apply paint, lacquers or just about anything that can be sprayed from an aerosol. It uses an aerosol can so no air compressor and is therefore more convenient to carry around and for smaller touch up applications. The way it works is the aerosol has a tube in the bottom that goes into a screw on jar on the bottom where paint, stain or just about anything can be put in it. The top of the can has a spray cap or they provide a handle and trigger to attach the can turning it into a spray gun. Its well thought out.
The kit contains the follow:
1 – Sprayer that holds the jar with a jar and extra lids
1 – vGrip, that is the optional handle to attach the aerosol
2 – Extra cans of aerosol spray with tube
4 – 6 oz. Glass bottles
4 – 6 oz. Plastic Touch up jars
4 – 3 oz. Plastic Touch up Jars
32 – Miscellaneous items, extra tubes, lids for all jars, etc.
its really easy to use, first strain the liquid to get out any lumps that may clog the tube and nozzle. Then check for viscosity that it is thin enough to spray a fine mist by thinning the liquid as necessary. Attach the vGrip handle to the aerosol and that's it. From that point its just spraying as you would normally with an aerosol can of paint or whatever.
I decided to check it out on a small project painting a wooden birdhouse. I poured a little paint in the glass jar after filtering it and then thinned it per the instructions. Getting paint the right consistency is the tricky part. Using latex I took the filter off the bottom of the bottom siphon straw. I found the spray to be weak, but a thicker consistency and nothing came out. Success is more about how you thin the paint. The vGrip handle did make holding the can easier to position and kept paint from going over my fingers. When finished I just used the cap to store the unused paint that was thinned for another time. There really isn't much to it next on to a bigger project, plan to now spray a metal radiator cover.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB Less setup and cleanup than using the vFan sprayer
This works well for small touch-up jobs where you want to quickly and painlessly spray instead of brush. You can’t do all your trim (for example) because of how the can’s quickly cool during use. You get the look of spraying without the setup and cleanup of a gun, including the Preval vFan. Personally I don’t need so many bottles, and because the replacement spray cans are only $4 each I’m not as impressed with the value of this kit as someone who would really max out the bottles with various finishes, which is why I rated it as I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcknzy Great little Sprayer.
A lot of auto parts stores mix custom paints and this is where this little sprayer shines.
I use it for spraying primer on small projects where pulling out the big gun is to time consuming,It works great and has good coverage.Beats using a rattle can and you can get the color you want not something that is close and have to live with.Cleaning is a snap and your ready to go again.Once you have the paint in the consistency you want you can store it in the jar for next time.It saves you money and you don't have a bunch of cans laying around with colors your not happy with.

This product is Eco friendly and easy to use. You get very thing you need to spray paint small areas without a compressor. The set has plenty of different bottles with easy measuring. You can also buy replacement air to use later on. Came with two cans.. Good product. We used it to paint a small area on our truck and I have to say it did a great job. This is a great concept.
