CONS

Our Verdict

The VINCI 3 may be a little chunkier and heavier than many other pod vapes but it works well as a replacement for your cloud-chucking mod and tank set up. However, it’s not great for nicotine salts and MTL vaping due to the harsh draw that it produces with the airflow restricted. For freebase ejuices the VINCI 3 does a really good job of delivering good flavor and anywhere from a RDL to an airy DL draw.

Even when vaping at high wattages, the battery life will be ample for at least a few days of vaping or even more depending on how heavily you vape. It also recharges fairly quickly for having an 1800mAh battery so the downtime is minimal.

Like any device, there are a few faults like the draw activation being finicky with the 0.6Ω coil, the fire button being super sensitive, and the leaking that I experienced with 60VG ejuices. All in all though, these aren’t major drawbacks and the pros for the VINCI 3 easily outweigh these few cons.

As a whole, the VINCI 3 delivers an all-around excellent vaping experience for those chasing flavor and clouds. Plus, since it’s compatible with all of Voopoo’s PnP coils, there are plenty of coil options to choose from. If you’re looking for a more portable cloud chasing setup, the VINCI 3 could be the device that you’re looking for.

Ever since the release of the original Voopoo Vinci in 2019, the VINCI line of pod devices has been continuously expanding. Now, the VINCI lineup includes pod vapes, pod mods, and even disposable vapes. 

Recently, Voopoo released a new addition to the VINCI family, the VINCI 3. They call the VINCI 3 “the 1st puffing master device” and that should give you some indication as to what it’s all about. It’s a pod vape that can fire from 5-50W and it features a wide range of adjustable airflow for anywhere from a tight to loose draw. 

The VINCI 3 has a 0.69” screen, adjustable wattage, and a built-in 1800mAh battery which can be recharged with Type-C charging. It also features both draw and button activated firing. The VINCI 3 is compatible with all of Voopoo’s many PnP coils.

As the latest VINCI device, the VINCI 3 joins the Vinci Air, Vinci Pod Kit, Vinci Pod SE, Vinci 2 & Vinci X 2, just to name a few. 

If you’re after a small device that can dish out large clouds, is the VINCI 3 the device to get? I tested the VINCI 3 to see if it lives up to its designation as the “puffing master”.

Design & Build Quality

  • Voopoo VINCI 3 - 1

The VINCI 3 is a rather bulky pod vape that fits somewhere between the large VINCI 2 pod mod and the small and slim Vinci Pod SE. It’s still portable for sure, but at 101.3mm tall, 30.5mm wide, and 21.6mm thick, it’s a chunky device. I would compare it to some of SMOK’s recent Nord devices in terms of size and shape, so it’s nothing that hasn’t been seen before.

In addition to the bulky size, the VINCI 3 weighs in at a solid 101g with a full pod. You can feel the weight right away when you pick it up and you also won’t forget that it’s in your pocket. Again, pod vapes of this weight aren’t unheard of and in the case of the VINCI 3, it adds a solid feel to the device.

I’ve been using the Carbon Fiber Black color for this review and it looks really good. The zinc-alloy frame is a matte finish and the front and back panels have genuine-looking carbon fiber panels. According to Voopoo, these panels are “optical coating decorative sheets” so they’re not real carbon fiber, but they do look the part. 

The entire device has remained looking good-as-new even after being put in and out of my pocket and tossed around on my desk. The panels don’t have a scratch or scuff and the matte painted frame is still pristine.

On each side of the Vinci 3 there is a large rectangular ejuice viewing window which I’ve found to be really useful. These windows span nearly the entire width of the device on each side and they are completely clear. The bottom of the pod also sits nearly even with the bottom of the window so you can see your ejuice level easily and at a glance.

Voopoo VINCI 3 - 8

The airflow control dial is firm and offers a wide range of possibilities, from MTL to an airy DL draw. There are four, large square airflow holes on each side of the VINCI 3 and if you look into them, you can actually see how the dial changes the airflow.

The VINCI 3 has a 0.69” display located on one side of the device. It’s black and white and rather basic but it’s bright and clear enough.

The fire button is located just below the airflow control dial and it’s one of my major issues with the VINCI 3; it’s just so sensitive! I’ve had the VINCI 3 button fire in my pocket almost every time that I’ve put it there and If I’m holding something else in the same hand with the VINCI 3, you can bet that the button is going to be pressed. There is a button lock feature which can be used to avoid this entirely but if you forget then you’re going to have a bad time.

Finally, the bottom of the VINCI 3 features a rubber pad which is supposed to keep the device from slipping. It does this job well but instead of slipping if hit while standing up, the VINCI 3 will just topple over instead. I’m not a fan of rubber bases on devices and this one is no exception.

Overall the VINCI 3 is a nice device with some convenient features that add to the experience of using it. It’s a bit bulky and heavy, but it’s solid.


VINCI 3 Pod

Voopoo VINCI 3 - Pod and Battery

The VINCI 3 has a massive 4ml pod which attaches to the battery magnetically. This pod uses Voopoo’s vast range of PnP coils, of which there are 13 coils available (including an RBA coil).

Included with the VINCI 3 are two of these coils: a 0.3Ω PnP TW30 coil and a 0.6Ω PnP-DW60 coil. Voopoo recommends that these coils be used with eliquids 75VG+ and with nicotine eliquids of 50mg or less, however I would recommend not using higher than a 25mg nicotine salt with either of these coils. 

The 0.3Ω coil can be set up to a maximum of 40W, while the 0.6Ω coil can be set at up to 23W. The VINCI 3 limits the maximum wattage that you can put through these coils in order to prevent you from burning them. There’s no way to unlock this wattage restriction.

The pod is clear and this allows you to easily see into it. Since the VINCI 3 has viewing windows, you don’t even need to remove the pod to check your ejuice level. It’s pretty convenient.

The mouthpiece is made of black plastic. It’s wide and comfortable, but it’s a pain to remove. You have to remove it in order to access the fill port and the easiest way to do this is by pushing back on it while the pod is still installed in the battery.

Voopoo VINCI 3 - Pod Fill Port and Cap

Once the cap is removed you’ll see a black silicone membrane covering the fill port. All that you have to do is insert your bottle nozzle into this fill port and it will open up. When you’re done filling and remove your bottle tip, the port will self-close.

Coils just push into the bottom of the pod and it’s really straightforward and simple to install them. Removing the coils is just as easy and you just pull them out from the bottom of the pod.


Features & Functions

Voopoo VINCI 3 - Display Screen

The VINCI 3 doesn’t have a complex menu or many settings to change, but it does offer two features that are great to have on a pod vape; adjustable wattage and adjustable airflow.

Adjusting the airflow is simple and can be done by using the dial on the front of the VINCI 3. Adjusting the wattage is a little more mysterious, especially if you’ve never used another device with this wattage adjustment method.

There’s only a single button on the VINCI 3 which is the fire button. To adjust the wattage, press the button three times and the wattage on the screen will begin to blink. Now you can either click the button to increase the wattage by 1W at a time or hold the button to quickly scroll the wattage upwards. When you reach your desired wattage just wait a few seconds and the wattage output will be selected.

In addition to your wattage, the screen displays a few other useful bits of information like a battery life indicator (with percentage), a puff counter, and your coil resistance. 

Pressing the fire button five times will bring up the only menu on the VINCI 3 and it’s nothing to write home about. In this menu there is the option to lock the power button (for when you’re putting it in your pocket or bag), clear the puff counter, and turn the device off.

Finally, the VINCI 3 has both draw and button activated firing so you can use whichever you like best. However, when using the 0.6Ω coil, the draw activation can be difficult to activate when the airflow is wide open. The draw activation works a lot better with the 0.3Ω coil.


Battery & Charging

Voopoo VINCI 3 - 9

The VINCI 3 has a good reason for being so bulky and that’s its massive 1800mAh built-in battery. When using either of the two included coils, you can reasonably expect to get at least two days of vaping out of this device with heavy vaping. It will last for a few hundred puffs per charge and that will be plenty of battery life for most vapers.

The Type-C charging port is located on the side of the VINCI 3 so you can charge it standing up. It takes approximately 50 minutes for a full charge and that’s not bad considering the size of the battery.


Performance

Voopoo VINCI 3 - 10

I tested the VINCI 3 with both of the included coils and it certainly is a cloud chucker. Starting off with the 0.6Ω coil, it can deliver anywhere from a tight MTL draw to an airy DL draw depending on how you have the airflow. Setting the airflow for a DL or RDL draw is the best experience with this coil, especially with a 20mg nicotine salt ejuice. Setting the airflow too tight delivers a MTL draw that is a little harsh and induces choking, so it wasn’t my preferred way of vaping with this coil.

Interestingly, the draw activation is finicky with anything but the tightest airflow setting, although this isn’t the case with the 0.3Ω coil. I would think that this coil being higher resistance would be more restricted too, meaning that the draw activation would work better, but that’s not the case.

I get great flavor from this coil along with large clouds too. Unfortunately, I experienced some leaking with 60VG ejuices, although 80VG freebase ejuices did not give me any leaking  whatsoever. I found this coil to be best at 21W, although it can be set as high as 23W before the device restricts you from going any higher.

The 0.3Ω coil is one that I would only recommend using with freebase nicotine ejuices. 6mg ejuices vape perfectly with this coil and you can set the wattage all the way up to 40W. I preferred vaping in the 35-40W range and got good flavor, large clouds, and nice warm vapor.

The draw activation works well with this coil no matter how the airflow is set, although wide open it’s a very airy draw. Having the airflow a little more restricted than midway worked really well for this coil and enhanced the flavor too. I did not have any leaking when using 80VG regular ejuices, only a little bit of condensation under the coil.


Verdict

The VINCI 3 may be a little chunkier and heavier than many other pod vapes but it works well as a replacement for your cloud-chucking mod and tank set up. However, it’s not great for nicotine salts and MTL vaping due to the harsh draw that it produces with the airflow restricted. For freebase ejuices the VINCI 3 does a really good job of delivering good flavor and anywhere from a RDL to an airy DL draw.

Even when vaping at high wattages, the battery life will be ample for at least a few days of vaping or even more depending on how heavily you vape. It also recharges fairly quickly for having an 1800mAh battery so the downtime is minimal.

Like any device, there are a few faults like the draw activation being finicky with the 0.6Ω coil, the fire button being super sensitive, and the leaking that I experienced with 60VG ejuices. All in all though, these aren’t major drawbacks and the pros for the VINCI 3 easily outweigh these few cons.

As a whole, the VINCI 3 delivers an all-around excellent vaping experience for those chasing flavor and clouds. Plus, since it’s compatible with all of Voopoo’s PnP coils, there are plenty of coil options to choose from. If you’re looking for a more portable cloud chasing setup, the VINCI 3 could be the device that you’re looking for.

  • I thought this device was gonna be great but I have went thru 8 coils 2 pods in not even a month it leaks EVERYWHERE doesn’t matter what coil or pod I’m using I feel like it’s all a total waste in money in buying pods coils AND more juice cuz how bad leaks are

  • It’s utter crap! It leaks like hell, if I had known before… I wasted a lot of money ordering two. I used to use their simple but brilliant Voopoo VMate – no buttons no gimmicky OLED displays, but they worked, they just worked.
    I was so wrong to assume the “superior” Vinci 3 would be even better.
    Stick to what you know guys! Don’t buy this, it’s impossible to take out of the house in a pocket due to heavy leaking.
