Lipo-6 Black vs. Grenade Thermo Detonator. These two raging fat burners may have similar claims but boy do they have an almost opposite approach to melting fat off your skin. We can even say it’s a battle between a tactician and a war vet who’s been to more battles than any sane person should.
Like the tactician, Lipo-6 Black invests more on brain power, of thinking before acting, of planning to win before anything else. Grenade Thermo Detonator on the other hand is the very definition of a badass soldier who knows the ins and outs of strategy as well as the difference between how it’s supposed to go and how it actually goes.
Two expert supplements, one goal: To burn as much fat as they can in one good serving. Who’ll come out with the most kill count?
Let’s find out…

Round 1: Formulas
Both Lipo-6 Black and Grenade Thermo Detonator claim to be the one-stop solution to burn the fat off your hidden six-pack but as mentioned earlier, they have opposing mindsets when it comes to war on fat.
Lipo-6 Black is a brain-boosting fat shredder.
Lipo-6 Black only has six ingredients but boy do they hit hard. The tactician starts the war with a great dose of Bacopa in the premium brand known as Bacognize. Bacopa is one of our top nootropic choices and is capable of promoting mood balance, mental clarity, and focus as well as fight stress. This approach is catered to offset the mental fatigue dieters often acquire and helps prevent them from eating calories they shouldn’t.
Next is a generous dose of Caffeine, one of our best fat burning ingredients which everyone knows is always a welcome addition in a high quality fat burner. But it’s not just all about caffeine as Lipo-6 Black super punches us in the gut with Synephrine as Advantra-Z, possibly one of the most potent fat-burning ingredients in the market today. And you know what’s nice about Advantra-Z? It ain’t bad for your blood pressure and heart rate, bro.
Vinpocetine is another one of our best nootropic bets which is a good addition if you want to further enhance brainpower and to further support Bacopa’s goal in this formula.
To round it up are Zingerone, the active compound found in ginger, and Yohimbine HCl, the active compound found in yohimbe. Zingerone is capable of aiding digestion and suppressing appetite as well as improve metabolism. And Yohimbine is just as reliable as ever when it comes to burning fat and promoting vasodilation.
The tactician doesn’t need much to prove how good he is. All he needs are working men and Lipo-6 Black displays its confidence by just having six potent ingredients. Now let’s go check out the competition.
Grenade Thermo Detonator is really just here to blow the bejesus out of fat
Grenade Thermo Detonator is formulated to work just like the way its bottle was designed: Explosive and will take out every fat in contact with the explosion.
It explodes onto the scene with three incredibly potent fat burners: Standardized Green Tea Extract, Synephrine, and Caffeine. Adding Grapefruit boosts nutrient absorption, red hot Cayenne is present together with its less hostile relative Evodiamine that serves to enhance cayenne’s effects. Yohimbe and Raspberry Ketones provide plenty of support fire by optimizing overall metabolism and fan the flames even more.
But Grenade isn’t all about fat-burners. Just like an experienced war veteran, it also knows the importance of keeping your cool in the heat of combat. Grenade translates this into supplement form by including the likes of Phenylalanine, β-pheneythylamine HCl or PEA, and DMAE for focus, mood enhancement, alertness, and a general calm and “feel good” sensation. As an added bonus, Phenylalanine also works as an appetite suppressant.
As a finisher, Grenade adds in Cocoa Bean Extract for improved blood flow, Forskolin to promote ATP production and further enhance the burn. Yerba Mate is another source of caffeine but provides a milder release which should help give you a clean boost once the original Caffeine source runs out.
In conclusion of the first round, the two combatants look to be both capable of ensuring victory in any war but only one of them actually gets the enemy flag and its Grenade Thermo Detonator for keeping its eyes on the prize and prioritizing fat burning over anything.
Lipo-6 Black is smartly formulated indeed but we think it’s too smart for its own good. It’s a fat-burner but fat-burning seems to be a secondary priority. The approach is justified but we feel like this tactician suffers from analysis paralysis and in times of war, hesitating means death.
Round 1… Grenade Thermo Detonator Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Of the two, only Lipo-6 Black was confident enough to be transparent in the label so kudos to that. This makes it easier for us to assess just how much damage Lipo-6 Black can do with each wave of attack. Too bad we can’t say the same with Grenade Thermo Detonator.
We’re going to start this out by saying Lipo-6 Black hits the minimum effective dose (and more) for each ingredient. We specially note the generous dosage for Caffeine and Advantra-Z as these two make one hell of a fiery fat-burning stack. Definitely a smart approach ala MacGyver on making effective use of what little resources you have.
Grenade Thermo Detonator gives us a hint of what it’s packing but to be honest we’re not really impressed. It has to provide doses to 14 ingredients with just 775 mg and bro it would be lucky to get the first five ingredients at minimum efficacy.
There’s also a bit of safety concern here. Let’s assume Green Tea Extract is at 250 mg, the minimum level of dosage, but how about Synephrine and Caffeine? Most studies use not more than 50 mg while Caffeine is usually around 120 mg or equivalent to a really strong cup of coffee.
Here’s the issue: Synephrine looks alarmingly high as it came second in the blend. As safe as most studies claim it to be, this is potentially a red flag for newbs who don’t know Synephrine, or their stimulants, pretty well. But at least we know the Synephrine-Caffeine stack works so you know you’ll feel the burn.
We can’t say much for the rest of the ingredients as they all look pretty weakly dosed after the first three.
In conclusion of the second round, Grenade Thermo Detonator acted just like a typical grenade: Not much bang but lots of shrapnel in the air to hurt surrounding enemies. But in a battle of big explosions, Lipo-6 Black comes out with fewer ammo but with deeper craters and let’s just say you can’t nurse blown-up body parts to health.
Round 2… Lipo-6 Black Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
This round is solely for just how much money did these two invest in their ingredients and looks like Lipo-6 Black did well.
Lipo-6 Black not only offered two premium brands – Bacognize and Advantra-Z – but also included Zingerone and Yohimbine HCl, two potent standardized ingredients. And yes, matching their doses makes it all the better.
Grenade Thermo Detonator only has two high quality ingredients: Green Tea Extract and DMAE. DMAE is a pretty handy nootropic but too bad the dosage won’t really make it shine. Green Tea Extract standardized to 80% polyphenols and 45% EGCG is actually quite ideal and you all know how much we love our Green Tea Extract. Sadly, the rest are pretty generic.
As far as this round is concerned, both had great ingredients but Lipo-6 Black just had more. We’re also impressed at how the premium ingredients are able to achieve 100% efficacy with the dosages they have. As for Grenade Thermo Detonator, we can only wish it spent more on ingredients than the fancy bottle.
Don’t get us wrong. We like the bottle design and would definitely a be a good addition to any bro’s bottle collection but only having 2 high quality ingredient out of 14 kinda makes the company a bit too frugal.
Round 3… Lipo-6 Black Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Lipo-6 Black||VS.||Grenade Thermo Detonator|
|1 Bottle (40 servings)||$55.00||1 Bottle (100-day supply)||$59.95|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.46||Price Per Capsule||$0.60|
|Price Per Serving||$1.38||Price Per Serving||$0.60|
Round 4… Grenade Thermo Detonator Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
Seeing our reviews on Lipo-6 Black and Grenade Thermo Detonator will make you realize one thing: Both are more than decent fat burners, not the BEST, but decent. But Grenade Thermo Detonator has a tiny advantage over Lipo-6 Black in the star ratings:
- We’re talking 3.5 (Lipo-6 Black) vs. 3.7 (Grenade Thermo Detonator) out of 5 stars.
That’s a close fight between two explosive fat-burners.
The final difference would be your preference on training and budget. If you’re the type of bro who likes the idea of energizing your brain while burning fat, then no doubt Lipo-6 Black is a great choice. You will never go wrong with Lipo-6 Black’s smart-first formula specially when it comes to quality and potency. Hey, maybe you’ll become a genius lifter.
For us, we prefer to go for the burn as much as possible. It’s called a fat burner after all and in that context, Grenade Thermo Detonator reigned supreme. Sure, it had generic ingredients and probably mild doses for most of its ingredients but those can be easily remedied by increasing the dose.
It’s a one-cap serving and it’s pretty cheap so there’s almost no harm in trying unless you don’t like being overstimulated specially with its likely high dose of Synephrine.
Tacticians are smart and all but they don’t really understand war like vets do.
In the Lipo-6 Black vs. Grenade Thermo Detonator fight, the winner by a SPLIT Decision is…
