Design and Style
The Voopoo Vinci pod is without a doubt one of the most compact pod devices. It measures 93.5x14x24mm, which is a damn sight shorter than some of its competitors like the Caliburn G and the Vinci Air, which came before it.
However, that diminutive size also means it packs a slightly smaller internal battery at 800mAh. It does have a couple of tricks up its sleeve to ensure that it will see you through a whole day without much hassle, but we’ll cover that later.
The Vinci pod’s main body is made from Zinc Alloy, which gives it a nice weight, adding to its premium feel. The metal is well coated and feels nice in the hand, as do the two side panels. Each of which has an oil and fingerprint-proof coating, which prevents glares, and Voopoo claims is also shockproof.
I’m not sure if all that makes much of a difference in such a small pod kit. Still, there’s no denying it’s exceptionally well made, possibly one of the best pods I’ve come across with regards to build quality.
There are seven different color options currently available for the Vinci pod kit, each with an alternative colored body and pattern on the side panel. The ‘Aurora Silver’ version we have in review seems to affect the side panel pattern that changes color depending on the light and angle you view it from.
I wouldn’t ordinarily go for a silver-colored pod vape, I tend to prefer the stealthier black ones, but I must say I’ve grown rather fond of this one’s looks.
The rest of the design of the Vinci pod is pretty clean and straightforward. There’s the Vinci branding on the side, with a small ‘Gene’ logo towards the base. To keep things even cleaner, Voopoo has integrated the power status light to be behind the ‘Gene’ logo, which is a nice touch.
On the base of the device is a Type-C USB port for charging, but there are no buttons to fire the device as it’s only draw-activated. On the top side of the battery, you will notice a sliding switch which is to adjust airflow – that’s right, adjustable airflow in a compact Voopoo pod. We’ll cover how well the airflow works later on.
There’s also a small pinhole airflow whole on the opposing side, so even with the airflow completely closed off you can get an extremely tight MTL draw – We’ll cover how well the airflow works later on.
The Vinci pod kit is as simple as they come in design, but that simplicity brings a sleek design with excellent build quality.
As you might expect, the Vinci pod kit isn’t full of features, as it’s a simple pod kit without a screen or fire button.
It does pack Voopoo’s Gene chip inside which has a maximum output of 15W. It’s a good chipset that also helps maintain a stable output and decent battery efficiency while having an impressive auto fire response time.
The draw activation seems to work seamlessly and is undoubtedly one of the best I’ve tried in a pod system.
The Vinci Pod also comes with all the usual safety protections of overtime, short-circuit, overcharge, over-current, discharge, and over-temperature protection.
The device has a built-in 800mAh battery which can be charged via Type-C USB. Voopoo doesn’t seem to state whether it’s quick charging or what Amps are used, but I did manage to go from flat to fully charged in just over half an hour which is impressive.
As previously mentioned, the ‘Gene’ logo on the side of the device acts as the battery status with the following:
- Green = 60% or above
- Blue = 20-60%
- Red = less than 20%
Sadly there is only one pod included in the Vinci pod kit. I think all devices should come with at least two pods, just in case there’s an issue with the only one included, leaving the customer without a working device.
I know Voopoo is probably trying to keep costs down so they can make it more affordable. Still, users will need more pods anyway, so just bump the price a bit and include two!
Anyway, rant over.
The pod that comes included (and as far as I can tell, the only one available for the device) has an integrated 0.8-ohm coil. There is no removing the coil; it’s an all-in-one affair.
I expected to see removable PnP coils like other devices in the Vinci line, but having a closed unit does have its advantages.
It’s easier for new vapers to use, as they only need to deal with the pods. It’s also enabled Voopoo to make them leakproof, and I can honestly say I don’t remember seeing a drop of liquid in my time of using the device.
There’s also an argument that keeping everything contained in the pod could help with a better vape experience, we’ll see in the performance section below.
The one major downside of a complete pod instead without removable coils is obviously the waste – not the greatest for the environment.
The pods have a 2ml juice capacity with a side fill port which is your standard rubber plug affair.
One thing I do really like about these pods is they have great viewing for your juice capacity. They’re not tinted, and there’s plenty of clear plastic for you to see your coil and juice.
They also fit extremely well into the battery. It’s a snug press fit, and they don’t use magnets to hold everything in place, which means you won’t accidentally drop your pod.
It’s getting harder and harder to judge pods systems’ performance, not just because there are so many entering the market, but because they all deliver a quality vape.
The Vinci pod kit is certainly right up there with the best of them. It delivers a warm and flavorful vape right from the first draw.
I actually think the 0.8-ohm coil delivers a little more flavor and warmth than the PnP coil equivalent. So there might be something in the fact it’s an enclosed coil.
The adjustable airflow on the Vinci works, but it’s not the best and doesn’t make a massive difference in the airflow.
I’d say with it completely open, you are achieving a very restricted direct-to-lung vape to a loose-ish mouth-to-lung.
Most people will be happy with the MTL. As I mentioned above it can do a decent loose MTL. With the airflow adjustment completely closed off it leaves just the small pinole open on the other side, which then gives you an incredibly tight MTL draw for those that like the sensation of sucking a watermelon through a straw.
My mine gripe is that when adjusting the airflow it doesn’t make much of a difference, and isn’t as granular at dialing it in like other airflow systems. That being said it should cover most MTL style draws, but don’t expect an open DTL draw from the Vinci Pod.
It’s also worth mentioning that it is a smooth airflow draw that the Vinci delivers in either setup.
Personally, I think the Vinci pod setup as an MTL with less airflow is where it really shines for flavor. It also means you’ll get a bit more mileage out of that 2ml juice capacity before you have to refill it.
As for the battery, I know that 800mAh is a little on the small side, but it’s a worthy trade-off for such a compact pod vape. It should last most users a full day, as long as there’s no chain vaping going on, and it’s quick to recharge anyway.
I noticed that the power output dipped a little when you get down to below the 20% (red) mark, but it still delivered a decent enough vape with less oomph.

- Closed pods not replaceable coils (subjective)
Is the Vinci kit just another pod vape in an already cluttered market? Yes.
Does it bring anything new over previous Vinci devices? Not really.
However, it is a great little kit that delivers an excellent vape experience in such a compact and stylish design.
It may not have a ton of bells and whistles, but the Vinci pod kit on style and performance alone could be one of the stars of the year in the pod category. I can see many people wanting to carry one of these around as their out and about device – if we ever get to that point this year!
