[2020 Updated] VOOPOO VINCI X Review: The Versatile Mod Pod Kit
The VOOPOO VINCI X combines the portability of a pod system and the versatility of the mod kit. The VINCI X is a special one in the VINCI league, as it is not driven by an internal battery, but working with a single 18650 battery. The VOOPOO VINCI X is capable of firing up to 70W while its previous versions were only up to 40W. The VOOPOO VINCI X pod kit is bigger than VINCI and VINCI R due to the 18650 battery. The large TFT screen allows you to adjust the wattage and view the important vaping data.
Build Quality and Design
The dimension of VOOPOO VINCI X is 117 mm x 29 mm x 25 mm, which is slightly bigger than the VINCI and VINCI R. The VINCI X is more apparent on the height than the previous VINCI and VINCI R as they both measured 104 x 25.3 x 25.3mm. The sturdy zinc alloy appearance with the extra heft from 18650 battery gives you a decent touch.
The VOOPOO VINCI X TPD edition features a 2ml plastic pods, which is no different to the VINCI and VINCI R Pods. They measure the same and fit the same. The cutouts at their sides provide two airflow options. The mouthpiece featuring the duck-billed ergonomic shape allows for a proper opening for the vaper to access your lungs.
The VOOPOO VINCI X Mod Kit holds nicely in the hand and its not too heavy even with the 18650 battery. The sturdy zinc alloy material with the honey comb patterns on the side provides you the nonslip hand feel and the gorgeous appearance.
Pods and Coils
The pod cartridge of the VOOPOO VINCI X Kit has not been changed. The dimension of the battery mod has been enlarged, but the dimension of the place where you install a pod remains the same.
The 2ml maximum e-juice capacity (TPD Edition) can satisfy your all-day vaping. The 4 magnets on the pod connect strongly with the VINCI X Mod.
The airflow of the VOOPOO VINCI X Kit is adjustable. You can check the cutouts at the side of the pod, then easily rotate the pod 180-degree to switch from loser airflow to tighter airflow. Both 2 airflow options are restricted DL, but they are just fine for the coils that are available, one for a loose DTL hit, one for a restrictive DTL hit.
How to Fill the VINCI X Pod
- Remove the pod from the mod of the VOOPOO VINCI X.
- Peel back the silicon plug of the filling port.
- Hold your pod horizontally and fill with your favorite e-liquid.
- Close the silicon plug tightly.
- Fit the Pod back onto the device.
The VOOPOO VINCI X Pod Mod Kit is compatible with all PnP series coils by VOOPOO.
The VOOPOO VINCI X Kit comes with two coils in the box:
The PnP-VM1 mesh coil (0.3 ohm) rated for 32-40 watts, best for regular e-liquid
The PnP-VM4 mesh coil (0.6 ohm) rated for 20-28 watts, best for nicotine salt
Both the included coils are made for DL vaping. You can consider the 0.3-ohm coil similar to a restricted sub ohm coil, and the 0.6-ohm coil a bit more powerful than the regular MTL coil.
The 0.3ohm mesh coil is probably the one you want if you prefer extra airflow and warmer vapor.
The coil life isn’t well, but it still better than your average AIO coil. It gives you a slightly intense flavor, cloudy vapor production and the draw is a little bit warmer.
VOOPOO chose to replace the regular 0.8ohm coil that came with the original VINCI with the PnP-VM4 0.6-ohm mesh coil. The 0.6ohm mesh coil renders it obsolete in almost every way. The flavor is almost the same, but the performance is better.
Coil Replacement of the VOOPOO VINCI X Kit:
The VOOPOO VINCI X Pod Kit comes with the well-known PnP coils, you can easily replace the coil by plugging in and out. Without leaking issues, the coil stays well in the pod.
- Simply remove the pod cartridge, and pull out your old coil.
- Install in your new coil, wait for 15 – 20 minutes to allow the coils to fully saturate in e-liquid.
- You can prime the initial wicking by drawing the e-juice into the cotton (place your fingers over the air holes, inhale as if vaping when your VINCI X powered off).
Battery and Display
The VOOPOO VINCI X 70W Pod Kit is powered by a single 18650 battery(sold separately) for higher power and longer-lasting. You just need to unscrew the threaded battery cap at the bottom of the Mod and insert a fully charged 18650 battery. You don’t need to worry about recharging the VINCI X if you have a spare 18650 battery. The battery life of VOOPOO VINCI X depends on your vaping habits.
The VINCI X will ask you to set the time to calculate your puffers per day and show the data for the last 2 weeks. But the setting will be reset if you charge the battery externally.
