VooPoo Doric 60 Kit Review

The Doric 60 Kit is the latest offering from VooPoo.

It is a compact and straightforward pod kit that keeps the trend of using the popular PnP coil range.

The Doric 60 has an internal 2500mAh battery, auto-draw or fire button activation, fully adjustable airflow, and three power settings.

It also utilizes the PnP pod connection and is cross-compatible with the vast selection of VooPoo’s existing pods and coils.

The Voopoo Doric 60 is available in 5 colors: Ice Blue, Deep Sea Blue, Olive Green, Space Grey, Grapefruit Red.

The Good

Good build quality, compact, easy to use, versatile PNP coil options, fully adjustable airflow, good flavor and clouds from coils.

The Bad

Not the best for MTL, slightly long charge time.

The Bottom Line

The Doric is an excellent addition to the Voopoo product line. It should actually be seen as a pocket-friendly supplement to anybody who already owns one of the many Voopoo devices. It makes easy use of the versatile PnP Pods and coils and delivers them in a stripped-back and compact device. The Doric 60 provides a great vape experience for such a small kit.

Design & Style

The Doric 60 has a kind of vape pen/pod mod crossover design. At first glance, you would think it’s just a vape pen with a clear tank on top, but it’s actually more of a pod system in its functionality.

The Doric utilizes VooPoo’s PnP pods with their excellent magnetic connection, so can be easily placed on and off of the device. It’s also a universal design within VooPoo’s ecosystem, which can be used with their other recent devices.

This cross-compatibility has been at the forefront of VooPoo’s designs, and it truly has to be commended. You can easily use the same pod on any Drag device or pop the new Drag S Pro pod/tank on top of the Doric – I’ve tried, and they all work seamlessly.

This leads to the Doric conforming to the same width as the PnP pod, making it 26.55mm wide. But it isn’t particularly tall, measuring only 113.45mm in height. This still makes it an incredibly pocketable device, more so than any of the Drags, and it still houses a 2500mAh internal battery.

VooPoo has also ported over the adjustable airflow control ring at the top of the device, with the same 360-degree dual airflow. This has either a large cyclops airflow or small pinhole airflow, so you can really tailor the draw.

The airflow control ring has a nice bit of detailed knurling on the top and bottom, making it easy to grip and spins with the perfect amount of resistance.

The rest of the Doric 60 design is quite a simple affair. There is a nice slightly raised fire button on the front with 3 small LED lights positioned above (more on these later).

On the reverse side of the battery tube is a USB-C port for charging, which it can do at a respectable 1.6A rate.

Towards the bottom of the device is some very simple branding, which doesn’t deter from the overall aesthetic. Then on the base, VooPoo has used the same silicone ring we’ve seen in recent devices. This just gives it a bit of stability and cushioning when placed on a table. It’s a simple but nice touch.

The device actually has a really lovely matte paint finish to it, and the ‘Deep Blue Sea’ version we have in for review looks really sleek and stylish. The body is made of metal, although there’s no indication what type, but I’m assuming Zinc Alloy of Aluminum because it’s also very light in weight – but it doesn’t feel cheap.

VooPoo claims the device is ‘Scratch Resistant’ and ‘Anti-Fingerprint.’ I can easily see that is the case with the finish, but I will also add that it does make it a little slippery. However, due to its cylindrical design, it’s really comfortable to hold.

The Doric 60 is a straightforward and stylish vape pen/pod kit. Voopoo has been clever in striping back the features of their Drag series to create an especially pocketable device that works in line with their other products.

Features

The Voopoo Doric 60 Kit is on the sparse side when it comes to features, but it does have some important functions.

The Doric 60 comes with a built-in 2500mAh battery and has a power output range of 5-60W.

It also features an auto-draw and button firing, and the auto-draw is very responsive to inhaling.

The Doric also has 3 power modes to adjust the performance.

To control the device:

  • Device On/Off – 5 clicks of the fire button
  • Power Adjustment – Press the Fire button 3 times to enter adjustment mode; the indicator will glow solid color.
  • Each press of the fire button will change the power setting.

White = High Power

Green = Middle Power

Blue = Low Power

The LED lights also act as your battery status when firing or charging the device. Each of the LEDs will glow white when charging. All 3 lit mean it’s fully charged.

When using the device, the LED indicate as below:

3 LEDs = Full charge

2 LEDs = 30-65% charged

1 LED = 30% or less

As mentioned previously, the Doric can be charged via USB-C and has a charge rate of 1.6A.

The Pods

The Doric 60 comes with one refillable PnP pod and has a 4.5ml capacity.

It utilizes VooPoo’s PnP coil range and can be used with any of the coils. Of which, there is a vast selection.

My only word of warning is that the Doric 60 is only a 60W max device, so it might not work so well with extremely low ohm coils like the 0.15Ω PnP-VM6 coil (best at 60-80W). Everything else will be more than fine.

The coils are push-fit and are incredibly easy to insert and remove from the pod.

The pod itself is just like we’ve seen before with the Drags. It has a non-removable drip tip and powerful magnets on the pod’s base to connect to the device.

Also, on the underside of the pod is the filling port. This is covered by a reasonably substantial rubber bung, which is easy to unplug with a fingertip.

The Doric pod has the same smoked tint to it as the Drag pods. It does make it look a bit sleeker, and you can still easily see your juice level through the pod.

Coils 

The VooPoo Doric 60 comes with the following two coils in the kit:

  • PnP-VM1 0.3Ω mesh coil
  • PnP-VM5 0.2Ω mesh coil

Performance

When it comes to the performance of Voopoo devices, they are pretty consistent across the board. This is thanks to the range of PnP coils that can be used in each device.

If you want to see a full breakdown of how some of those other coils/devices perform, check out our Voopoo Drag X/S Pro Kit review.

Let’s quickly cover the coils that come with the Doric 60 and how they perform with the battery airflow of this kit.

0.2Ω VM5 Coil

This coil comes recommended between 40-60W, so I primarily used it with the Doric in its highest power mode.

As I was vaping at a higher level and going for a DTL draw, I left the airflow wide open.

The VM5 delivers excellent flavor on the Doric with this setup.

I also tried it with the airflow down a quarter turn and the power set to medium. Which still delivered a good vape for those looking for a more subdued restricted DTL.

0.3Ω VM1 Coil

This coil I’m very familiar with, having used it in so many VooPoo devices.

The VM1 is recommended between 32-40W. I found with the Doric in ‘High Power’ mode, it was probably reaching the top of that 40W, but in ‘Medium Power’ mode, it was possibly closer to the 32W.

I prefer to rock this coil with a slightly more restricted draw, so I closed the airflow half off.

It delivers good flavor and vapor like this. It’s obviously not going to be as punchy as the more powerful VM5 coil, but you definitely get far better battery life with it, as it’s using less wattage.

Battery Life & Charging

The 2500mAh internal battery does a respectable job in the Doric 60.

I easily made it through a full day vaping with the VM1 coil and almost made it through a full day with the VM5.

If you are more of a chain vaper than me, then you might need to find a charger before the days out.

Sadly that’s where I was a little disappointed with the Doric 60 and its 1.6A charge rate. While this is quite a respectable charging rate, the 2500mAh battery took nearly 2 hours to charge from flat.

I would like to have seen a slightly faster charge time.

I’m sure Voopoo will consider releasing a Doric Pro, which will take an external 18650 or 21700 later down the line.

Verdict

The Doric 60 Kit doesn’t bring anything new to the table over any other VooPoo products.

In fact, it’s more of a stripped-back version of the Drag X or S. That’s exactly where the beauty lies with this device.

VooPoo is trying to dominate each section of the market with its devices while making them completely cross-compatible.

You want a powerful vape at home, use the Drag X Pro. Are you about to head out to the pub or take the dog for a walk and need a smaller, more pocket-friendly device? Take the pod off and chuck it on top of the Doric 60.

The Doric is easily the smallest and simplest of the Voopoo products, and that’s exactly where its strengths shine.

The popular PnP coils work great with the device, but I still wish a more traditionally tight MTL coil was available and included in the kit. The Doric would be ideal for that type of vaping, even if the mouthpiece is a little wide.

The Drag S & X Pro are probably the two most refined pod systems on the market, and I honestly believe they are worth the upgrade.
