Dimensions: 117mm*25mm*29mm

Materials: Zinc alloy, polycarbonate 

Weight: 175g

If you’ve been paying attention to Voopoo recently, it’s clear that they’re throwing everything behind the Vinci line of devices. The Vinci X is the largest iteration of their pod mod offerings and is a departure from the first two models in that it’s powered by an external 18650 cell.

Construction, fit and finish of the Vinci X are fantastic. As with the original Vinci, the zinc alloy frame feels robust, the strong magnetised connection holds pods in place securely, buttons are tactile and the finishing is flawless throughout. We were supplied with a “Space Grey” model for review and I have to say, it’s my favourite Voopoo finish to date, with fine diagonal lines running down the side panels and a dark mirror finish chassis. It’s a fingerprint magnet no doubt, but it doesn’t cross the line into being overly shiny. The Vinci X is slightly larger than its predecessors, to accommodate a removable cell but honestly, it’s not that noticeable. 

In terms of user experience, very little has changed between the original Vinci and the newest version. The most obvious difference is a new maximum power output of 70W. Bear in mind, the automatic wattage limits will stop you from exceeding the recommended power settings for stock coils, so for now the only way to achieve full output is by downloading the latest firmware and selecting RBA mode. Voopoo has opted to leave the pod design unchanged and this is my first gripe with the Vinci X, since two fixed airflow settings is simply not enough to cover the broad range of coils that this device is compatible with. 

The Vinci X retains all of the firmware features of the original, including a comprehensive puff counter system that is still unmatched, as far as I’m aware. I feel this useful tool flew under the radar somewhat and I still believe that it’s a great way for vapers to track their usage and nicotine intake over time. Power delivery is instant and smooth, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, since it’s the feature that Voopoo practically built their brand on with the original Gene chip. 

The mod is supplied with two coils. The first is the same 0.3Ohm mesh that came with the original device and this remains to be one of the best low power mesh stock coils I’ve tried. The second, a 0.6Ohm mesh coil, is new to me. It has a narrower bore compared with the 0.3Ohm option, with a lower 20W-28W recommendation. I found this coil to shine at 25W-28W on the more restricted airflow setting, with good flavour and vapour production for such a low power output. Longevity was good too, running through 45ml of moderately sweet e-liquid before any decline was noticed. I feel this coil is a good choice for newer subohm vapers, striking a good balance between power output and performance.  

Battery life on the Vinci X will depend entirely on your choice of 18650, coil and power output. There are quite a few variables here but as a general rule, you can expect approximately double the battery life of the original Vinci, when using a high quality 3000mAh cell such as the Samsung 30Q or LG HG2. 

In summary, the Vinci X is a worthy addition to Voopoo’s pod mod lineup. Great build quality, external cells and a growing range of coil options make this a versatile device, though I do wish they had updated the airflow control to allow for proper adjustment. 

Pros: 

  • Build quality 
  • Solid stock coils 
  • Large capacity (non-TPD edition) 

Cons: 

  • No RBA included 
  • Only two fixed airflow options
