The Voopoo Vinci Q Pod was released at the same time as the Vinci Royal Edition. However, it sits at the other end of the spectrum as a more budget Vinci pod option.
The Vinci Q has a built-in 900mAh battery, with a 15W maximum output – powered by Voopoo’s GENE AI chipset.
The Vinci Q uses the same new Vinci Pods as the Royal Edition (as well as standard Vinci Pods) and comes with a 1.2Ω coil pod in the kit. The pod has a 2ml capacity and uses the new top-fill & anti-leak system.
The Vinci Q pod kit is available in 6 different designs: Ceramic White, Seagull Grey, Crystal Blue, Charming Pink, Vibrant Orange, and Moss Green.

Design & Style
Following on from the recently reviewed upgrade to the Vinci line, the Vinci Royal Edition. We are now at the other end of the spectrum, as Voopoo strips back the materials and simplifies the design of the Vinci Q to be a far more affordable option.
The Vinci Q is constructed from an injection mold of two plastics, PC and ABS. Voopoo has created what they call a ‘two-tone textured’ layer. In essence, it has an inside layer that is colored and has some ridged texture to it; this is then coated with an outer layer that is clear (or slightly frosted) plastic.
This makes for a really interesting and unique look to the device and means it’s incredibly lightweight. Even though the Vinci Q is a plastic device, it doesn’t feel or look cheap. Of course, compared to the Royal edition, it does, but overall it’s better than most.
The Vinci Q also has a couple of design differences from the other Vinci devices. It has a designed fire on/off button, as well as using auto-draw.
The fire button slightly protrudes from the device but has a nice concave, so you can easily feel it without looking.
There is an LED indicator light that goes around the fire button (as well as a circle within) to show your battery status. This is opposed to the separate LED indicators on the other Vinci pods that do not have a fire button.
There is no adjustable airflow with the Vinci Q. It has two small pinholes on either side of the device to allow airflow beneath the pods.
The new pods connect to the device through friction, just like the Royal edition. IT doesn’t feel as secure as the more premium option. In fact, I did drop the Vinci Q a couple of times, and both times the pod shot across the room. There was no damage to the device, and it seems very robust considering it is plastic.
On the side of the Vinci Q is the USB Type C port for charging, with a charge rate of 1A.
The Vinci Q has a slightly larger battery than the original Vinci Pod and Vinci Royal Edition, with a 900mAh compared to their 800mAh capacity.
As with the Vinci Royal Edition, the magic really happens with the newly upgraded pods, which we will cover in detail below.
The Vinci Pod Royal Edition comes with a 900mAh internal battery that utilizes VooPoo’s GENE AI chipset.
It’s an excellent chipset that delivers 11-15W of power (depending on the resistance of the pod attached).
The Vinci Q is a dual firing device. It can be fired either through the designated fire button or using the Auto-Draw switch – both are extremely rapid.
The Vinci Q pod kit has all the usual safety protections: Overtime, Output Over-Current, Low Battery, Over-Discharge, Over Temperature, Over Charge, and Atomizer Short-Circuit Protection.
It also features a USB Type C port for charging, with a charge rate of 5V/1A.
There is an LED Indicator light on the fire button that shows battery status with the following:
- Green = Above 30%
- Red = Below 30%
The Vinci Q can be switched on/off by clicking the fire button five times. Sadly there is no way to deactivate the fire button and only have Auto-draw active.
The Vinci Q only comes with one pod in the kit, which is a 2ml capacity pod with a 1.2Ω coil built-in. There is also a 0.8Ω coil pod available, but it will have to be purchased separately.
This is the same new version of the Vinci pods that came with the Royal Edition, which are vastly improved. It can still work with the standard Vinci pods.
The improvements to the Vinci pods are that instead of a side-fill port, it now has a top-fill system which helps eliminate any leaking.
To fill the pod, you remove the mouthpiece by applying pressure sideways, so it snaps off. This then reveals the rubber plug and fill port at the top of the pod.
As we mentioned with the Royal Edition review, you can fill the pod while it’s still in the device. But we recommend removing it to prevent any excess liquid from leaking through.
The new pods have the same duck-billed shape mouthpiece as the previous Vinci pods.
The Voopoo Vinci Q pod kit performs fantastically, just like the Vinci Royal Edition.
This is all because of the new pods, which seem to deliver slightly better flavor than the original pods.
The 1.2Ω pod included delivers a decent MTL draw, not the tightest but enough to satisfy most MTL vapers.
The big difference between the Vinci Q and the other Vinci devices is the lack of adjustable airflow. You are stuck with the draw you get from the two airflow pinholes, which I don’t feel is sufficient to use the 0.8Ω coil on the device. It also means you can’t make the draw as tight as you can with the other Vinci’s
That being said, the 1.2Ω accompanies the Vinci Q device perfectly and delivers an excellent vape experience with great flavor and a smooth vaporful draw.
As mentioned in my Royal Edition review, I believe VooPoo has done some other tweaking to the new pods, as they seem to vape slightly better. The improved top-fill design is also great, and I’ve had no leaking issues whatsoever.
The 900mAh battery does a good job in the Vinci Q. While you won’t notice a massive difference over the other Vinci pod kits, it works well with the 1.2Ω coil to easily achieve a day’s worth of vaping.
As for whether you should invest in the Royal Edition of the Vinci pod kit over the standard Vinci, that will entirely come down to whether you want the more premium feel of the Royal.
- Good build quality
- Looks good
- Easy to use
- Draw Activation & Button
- Great flavor
- Good vapor production
- USB-C charging
- Decent battery life
- No Leaking
- Pods compatible with original Vinci kit
- Not the best battery indicator
- No adjustable airflow (subjective)
- Only one pod in the kit
While the Vinci Q doesn’t have the premium materials of the original Vinci or Vinci Royal Edition. It can still deliver an on-par performance, thanks to the excellent pods.
However, you will be stuck with the draw that the Vinci Q delivers out of the box, as there’s no adjustable airflow.
The Vinci Q is a plastic device, but it still has good build quality and is incredibly lightweight.
Voopoo has clearly tailored this stripped-back Vinci device at the beginner market, and it delivers a great vape experience for those new users.
It’s easy to use, compact, lightweight, and above all else, the coils perform great. It’s a shame they only include one in the kit.
