The Voopoo Vinci is an AIO/Pod style kit that shares design similarities to the recent Smok RPM40.
Its cuboid-shaped body houses a 1500mAh battery, 0.9″ color display, and the GENE.AI chip. It has a variable wattage range of 5-40W and features both auto and manual firing.
It has a 5.5ml capacity pod which utilizes VooPoo’s PnP style coils and comes with a 0.3-ohm (Mesh), and 0.8-ohm Kanthal coil in the kit.
Excellent build quality, feature-rich, 5.5ml capacity, decent battery life, two airflow options, fantastic flavor from the 0.3-ohm coil.
Loose MTL draw, liquid residue under the pod.
The Bottom Line
The Voopoo Vinci is an outstanding kit. Especially for those looking for a flavorful mesh coil AIO/pod system. It has an elegant compact design, with a feature-rich quality chipset. Won’t suit those that like a tight MTL, but for everybody else – highly recommended.

There’s no denying that the VooPoo Vince strikes a remarkable resemblance to the Smok RPM40 that we reviewed earlier this month.
While it’s unclear which manufacturer should be credited for the design form, one thing is for sure, the Vinci looks and feels more premium than it’s similarly-styled competitor.
The Vinci feels altogether more rounded than the RPM40, both in physical form and as a device in general. Everything from the finish of the paintwork to the responsiveness of the buttons is just a touch better, in my opinion.
One of the most significant design improvements with the Vinci is the pod or cartridge. VooPoo has been smart with the design of the pod to allow two different airflow options (which we’ll discuss later). It also has a slightly curved mouthpiece, which is more comfortable than that of the RPM40.
The Vinci measures in at 104mm x 25mm x 25mm, and weighs 114 grams, which makes it perfectly pocket-friendly.
It sports a 0.96-inch color screen on the front of the device, which displays all the required info in an organized fashion, although it can be a little on the dim side in bright daylight.
Overall the VooPoo Vinci is the perfect combination of an excellent compact design implemented with high build quality.
The Vinci comes with an internal 1500mAh battery powered by the GENE.AI chip.
The VooPoo chip offers a variable wattage range of 5-40W, instant firing, intelligent coil matching feature, auto & manual modes.
The Vinci does a fantastic job a firing manually or through draw activation, and you even have the ability to set your preferred option.
VooPoo also includes a puff curve feature, which displays your accumulative puffs in realtime on the screen and keeps the records for two weeks. A little gimmicky and not something I’d use, but it’s good to see extra features in a small kit.
Operating the Vinci is pretty straightforward. Below are the button sequences you need to navigate and change settings:
- 5 Clicks of Fire Button = On/Off
- 3 Clicks of Fire Button = Adjusts draw options between Auto, Manual, or Both.
- + /– buttons adjust wattage in 1-watt increments (5-40w)
- Press and hold Fire & + Button = Locks/Unlocks all buttons (still able to fire with draw activated setting)
- Press and Hold + & – Button = View Puff Information
- Press and hold Fire & – Button = Resets Puff Counter
The VooPoo Vinci only comes with one pod, unlike the RPM40, with its different pods for separate coils.
The pod has a whopping 5.5ml capacity (sadly only the usual 2ml in TPD areas).
It has a slightly smoked tint to the plastic of the pod, but it still remains easy to see your juice level through it, even while connected to the device.
The pod has four incredibly strong magnets on each corner of its base and snaps into place on the device with a satisfying strong force.
The fill port is located at the bottom of one side of the pod and is large enough for most dripper sizes. There’s a black rubber plug, which is anchored to the pod, acting as a seal. It’s relatively easy to grip and open, but I’m how well it will hold up over time, and unfortunately, there’s no spare plug in the kit.
One thing to note is several times when removing the pod from the device, I noticed liquid residue build-up underneath. It seemed to me like a mix of condensation and juice – which I guess is the slight downside with push-in coils.
Dual Airflow System
The Vinci has what VooPoo calls an ‘innovative’ dual airflow system – I’m more inclined to call it clever and well-implemented.
By rotating the pod 180 degrees when connecting to the device you will have either a Direct Lung or a Mouth-to-lung style draw.
This is achieved by the airflow grooves on either side of the pod, which align with 3 small airflow holes on either side of the device. When you position the pod in MTL mode it effectively blocks off two of the airflow holes (on either side).
The VooPoo Vinci comes with two coils in the kit:
The PnP-VM1 mesh coil (0.3-ohm)
The PnP-R1 Kanthal coil (0.8-ohm)
The Vinci is compatible with all of VooPoo’s PnP coil range. They have also recently added a PnP-RBA option on their website, but I’m yet to spot it in the wild.
The 0.3-ohm mesh is designed for direct lung vaping and the DL airflow configuration, while the 0.8-ohm is tailored more towards MTL with the matching airflow setup.
Both types of coils seem to wick admirably with 70VG juice. As for coil longevity, I’ve been able to push them both to a fourth refill of the pod, which remember has a 5.5ml capacity, so that’s pretty good going. But remember, your mileage may vary depending on the juice your using.
Throughout this review, I’ve been comparing the VooPoo Vinci with the RPM40, and it’s just about pegged the Smok device on most things.
So what about the performance of the Vinci and the PnP coils?
Quite frankly, the Vinci’s 0.3-ohm coils trounce any of the coils that the Smok has to offer for an AIO/pod system. They deliver one of the best vapes that have had from an AIO system, providing an instant, warm, and majorly flavorful vape.
The coils hit so hard it feels like I’m using a mid-to-upper range sub-ohm tank, they really are that impressive.
The vape itself is more on the restricted DTL side with the airflow in the completely open setting. You can also use the coil in the more restricted setup, which, while it’s even more flavorful, I think it’s maybe a little too powerful for such little airflow.
The 0.8-ohm coil delivered as I expected, it’s a really solid regular kanthal wire coil. It definitely doesn’t hit the heights of the 0.3-ohm coil with regards to flavor, but that’s to be expected.
While the 0.8-ohm is better suited to an MTL vape with higher nicotine levels, I did find the whole experience a little lacking for a true MTL vape. Even with the airflow setup restricted and the higher ohm coil, it’s a very loose MTL.
It still has a smooth draw and performs well; I just prefer an MTL to be a little tighter. Maybe their imminent RBA base may allow for an even tighter set-up…i’ll have to wait and see.
With regards to the Vinci device performance, I can’t fault it. It’s incredibly easy to use, has a brilliant build quality, and it fires fast in either mode (although a little quicker in manual).
Battery life is always a little tricky to gauge as it’s dependant on the coil resistance you are using,
However, the Vinci seemed to do a sterling job with both included coils, and I was easily getting through a full day of vaping from the 1500mAh battery.
The Vinci has 1amp charging via micro-USB charging. While it’s not the quickest on the market, you can get from flat to full in about 1.5 hours.
I’d have preferred to see USB type C and 2amp charging, but I guess you can’t win them all.
- Excellent build quality
- Compact design
- Premium looks
- Comfortable mouthpiece
- Dual airflow options
- Huge 5.5ml capacity

- Informative color display
- Rapid-firing GENE chip
- Good battery life
- Smooth airflow

- Good coil range
- Loose MTL draw
- A slight bit of liquid residue under the pod
- No spare silicon plug
The VooPoo Vinci is quite possibly the best AIO/Pod kit on the market right now for DTL vapers who prefer to use stock coils.
The 0.3-ohm coil delivers a sub-ohm tank style vape, which is full on flavor and copious with clouds.
It’s also an incredibly compact kit with a pleasing design and excellent build quality.
However, if you are looking to use the Vinci primarily for an MTL vape, I think there are better options out there.
