VooPoo Vinci 2 vs. VooPoo Vinci X2: Which Is Better?

There are many differences between these pod mods, despite coming from the same brand. But, here are the similarities that make them both great options.

  • Both pod mods have improved airflow control and are compatible with PnP coils, making for great flavor and cloud productions.
  • They also have side-filling ports that make both pods very convenient.

VooPoo Vinci 2 Review

VooPoo Vinci 2 Kit Colors

The VooPoo Vinci 2 mod is a small device that has a decent-sized battery and build quality, as well as a very wide wattage and resistance range. Additionally, its pods hold a lot of liquid – more than enough to get through a day without constant refilling.

Vapor Production

Vapor production is very good with both the 0.3 and 0.8 ohm coils, but the 0.3 ohm coil is much better for vapor production.

Power Modes

The Vinci 2 mod has Smart and RBA mode. Smart mode reads the coil’s resistance and automatically limits the power to the best level for the coil. RBA mode stops the power limit. The vape also has automatic and manual activation, which means it can be a draw- or button-activated.

Safety Features

Protections:

  • Overtime
  • Output Over-Current
  • Low Battery
  • Max Power
  • Over Temperature
  • Overcharge
  • Atomizer Short-Circuit
  • Magnetic Pod Connection

Starter Kit

The VooPoo Vinci 2 pod kit comes with:

  • One vape
  • One Vinci 2 Pod
  • Two PNP coils
  • Type-C USB Cable
  • User manual.

Internal Building Quality and Design

The design and build quality are superb. It has no sharp edges, making it very comfortable to hold, and the pos is small, making it easy to transport. There are no problems with the build quality, meaning no rattling or sticky buttons.

Battery Performance

This device uses a 1,500 mah battery, and in all honesty, it could have been bigger. It works for a long time on lower wattages, but not so long when the wattage is above 35 watts. Expect to recharge it once a day. But, it does have type-c charging, so users will not have to wait long to vape.

Screen

The mod has a very bright and vivid display screen that displays:

  • Battery life
  • Wattage
  • and everything the vaper needs to know.

VooPoo Vinci 2 Kit Colors

It is easy to read and discern. The battery life is displayed in the top right corner wattage in the center, and below that are the puff counter, resistance, time, and other pertinent info.

Airflow

The airflow control is a big improvement over that of the original Vinci. The knob is attached to the mod, and it slides left to right, allowing the user to change it more easily. A lot depends on the coil, but generally, airflow is very open, or it is restricted enough for loose MTL draws. This is a great device for people who want airy direct-to-lung draws and semi-restrictive mouth-to-lung hits.

The VooPoo Vinci 2 Pod

The pods hold 6.5 ml, which is comparable to the juice capacity of a tank. The best thing about the pod is the duck-billed mouthpiece. It is super-comfortable, and it works great with tight and open airflow settings.

Additionally, the PCTG plastic is clear enough to monitor the juice capacity without having to put it in the light.

Compatible Juices

This device can use salt nicotine or regular nicotine with a high vegetable glycerin content.

  • When using the salt nicotine, be sure to use it with the 0.8 ohm coil at low to moderate temperature settings and a tight airflow setting.
  • The 0.3 ohm coil can handle high VG juices at any temperature.

How Long Do the VooPoo Vinci 2 Coils Last?

PNP coils can last one to two weeks or more if they are properly used, which means properly priming them. Before putting them in the Vinci 2 pod, drip juice on them and put them in the pod, and then fill the pod with liquid.

Let five to ten minutes pass before vaping so that the juice has time to seep into the wicking.

How to Use the VooPoo Vinci 2 Pod and Mod

The Vinci 2 pod mod is easy to use. Use the tab on the side to adjust the airflow and fill and refill the pod via the fill port on the side. There is a silicone plug on a fill port. The Vinci 2 pod has to be removed to be refilled. The Vinci 2 coils are inserted into the bottom and can be pulled out.

Closing Thoughts on the VooPoo Vinci 2 Pod Kit

The Vinci 2 pod mod is an excellent choice because of its high nicotine juice capacity, output, and overall design and construction quality. However, the battery could have been better. But, how does this device stack up against the newer X2 version?


Voopoo Vinci X2 Review

Anyone who thinks the Vinci 2 is excellent should also try the X2 before making a decision between the two. The X2 has a few specifications that will make lovers of the Vinci 2 sit up and take notice.

Vapor Production

The X2’s vapor production is slightly higher than the Vinci 2. It fires to 80 watts, and it uses a much lower resistance 0.15 ohm coil.

Power Modes

Like the Vinci 2, the X2 has Smart and RBA mode. These modes work the same way as they do on the Vinci 2. However, the Vinci X2 does not have draw-activation.

Safety Features

Protections:

  • Overtime
  • Output Over-Current
  • Low Battery
  • Max Power
  • Over Temperature
  • Overcharge
  • Atomizer Short-Circuit

VooPoo Vinci X2 Kit Design

Starter Kit

The kit comes with:

  • One vape
  • Two pods
  • Two coils
  • Type-C Cable
  • User Manual

Internal Building Quality and Design

These mods look very similar in appearance, but the Vinci X2 is a good deal larger than its predecessor. However, it has the same outward design and a similar screen. Additionally, it is made from zinc alloy and is quite sturdy.

Battery

This vape uses a 18650 battery instead of an integrated battery. It lasts longer than the Vinci 2 at higher wattages, and it can be replaced with a charged battery when the one inside the vape depletes.

Screen

The screen is similar to that of the Vinci 2. The battery life is displayed in the top right corner, and below that are the wattage, puff counter, and other essential information.

VooPoo Vinci X2 Kit Design

Airflow

The airflow is the same. The adjustment knob is turned left and right. Airflow alternations between direct-to-lung and lost mouth-to-lung draws.

Pod

The pods are also pretty much the same, having the same nicotine juice capacity and the same fill ports. It would have been nice had the designers found a way to move the fill port so that it could be topped off without having to remove the pod. Other than that, no complaints on this end.

VooPoo Vinci X2 Kit Pods

Coils

The starter kit comes with:

  • a 0.3ohm PnP-VM1
  • a 0.15ohm PnP-VM6 coil.

These coils are ideal for people who want to puff big clouds, as they burn hotter and can handle high wattages.

Compatible Juices

With the existing coils, the best nicotine juices to use are ones with high vegetable glycerin content. 70/30 and 80/20 ought to do fine.

However, if the user can buy higher resistance PNP coils and switch to 50/50 liquids for a solid MTL hit.

How Long Do VooPoo Vinci X2 Coils Last?

As mentioned earlier, coil longevity depends on how the user treats his or her coils. People who prime their coils and give them plenty of time to absorb juice before starting vaping can expect longer coil life and fewer dry and burned hits.

How to Use the VooPoo Vinci X2?

The Vinci 2 and the Vinci X2 both have the same chip, so they operate almost the same. The only difference between these mods is that the X2 does not have draw activation, so do not worry about figuring out how to activate it.

Anyone who knows how the Vinci 2 works should be able to handle the X2 without a problem.

VooPoo Vinci 2 vs. Smok Nord 2

VD Smok Nord Colors

  • These are both excellent mods, but the Vinci 2 has better output and juice capacity.
  • The Nord 2’s output is 40 watts, and it holds 4.5 ml of juice.
  • The output and juice capacity is solid, but the Vinci 2 is slightly better in those respects. However, in terms of form factor, the Nord 2 is better because it is smaller, and its design is more elongated.

VooPoo Vinci X2 vs. Vandy Vape Jackaroo

Vandy Vape Jackaroo colors

  • The Jackaroo is by far the better mod.
  • It is a box mod, and it fires to 178 watts.
  • The device is more durable, and it uses dual 18650 batteries.
  • Also, the box mod is not that expensive, being priced at around sixty dollars.

Closing Thoughts on These Starter Kit Products

The VooPoo Vinci X2 is the better device of the two, but that should not come as a surprise. It is newer, and the designers always use the last vape as the baseline to make improvements.

Anyone thinking about buying one of these vapes might as well buy the latest addition. The only exception is those who want the auto-draw features.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
