Five-Star Rating System
When you look at it from one side, the Voopoo Navi mod pod looks really nice. I like the red, I like the deepness of the color. It’s got a bunch of nice colors that it’s available in. The problem is when you turn it over, you got that crappy branding. So in the looks department, we’re going to score it slightly above average. We’re going to give it a 3.
I already spoke about it a bit. the Voopoo Navi mod pod takes the Vinci coils. The coils on this are great. They’re very flavorful. I just wish it had a little bit more wattage to the system. I really do. I’d love to see them come out with a Navi Pro, go up to 75-80W with a single 18650. That would be fantastic. Maybe a little bit bigger capacity as well, that would be really nice. In the coil performance category, we’re going to give it a solid 3.
The airflow on the Voopoo Navi mod pod is adjustable. That’s a huge pro for systems like this. I wish it had a little bit more range, but I do like the fact that there is adjustable airflow. In the airflow department, we’re going to give it a solid 4.
I’ve been seeing the Voopoo Navi mod pod thing anywhere from $25-35 bucks. I got to tell you, for a 25 buck chuck, if you find it on the lower end, it’s got really nice build quality and it does vape well. So I’m going to give it a solid 3 in the value department. A little bit above average.
Add up all these stars, we get a total score of 13. We’re going to take these 13 stars, we’re going to divide them by 4, and we’re going to get an overall score of 3.25 stars for the Voopoo Navi mod pod. Three and a quarter stars, just about three-quarters above what I consider average.
Let’s get into the Pros for the Voopoo Navi
- Good Coils: Right off the bat, the coils for the Voopoo Navi mod pod are good. I get a really nice flavor. Not bad for 30W, not bad at all.
- Nice Restrictive DL Vape: I get a really nice restrictive DL vape that I like from the Voopoo Navi pod mod. it’s right up my alley. It’s a definite pro.
- Form Factor: The Voopoo Navi mod pod has that nice Smok Fetch-type of form factor. I’m digging it. We’ll give it a pro for that.
- Sharp Color Screen: The Voopoo Navi has a beautiful, sharp color screen that I’m really liking. It’s a pro.
- Draw or Push Button Activated: The Voopoo Navi mod pod is draw and/or push-button activated.
- Smart Wattage Lock: The Voopoo Navi has that smart wattage lock that keeps you from burning up your coil. That’s a pro.
- 2 Coils Included in the Kit: Two coils do come in the Voopoo Navi mod pod kit and both of them are great.
- Good-Looking: The Voopoo Navi is good looking. I like the looks of it. Besides the branding, I like the looks of it, especially the side without the brand.
- Takes Vinci Coils: The Voopoo Navi mod pod takes the same coils as the Voopoo Vinci. So if you’re a Voopoo Vinci fan, this is the same thing, just in a different form factor.
- Plenty of Coils Available: Plenty of coils available for the Voopoo Navi, plus an RBA section. That’s a pro.
- Nice Capacity: At 3.8mls, the Voopoo Navi mod pod has a nice capacity.
Let’s get into the Cons for the Voopoo Navi
- Doesn’t Come With A Mouth-To-Lung Coil: The Voopoo Navi pod mod doesn’t come really with a mouth-to-lung coil and it’s really not great at mouth-to-lung vaping. It’s a nice DL vape, but the mouth-to-lung side is definitely lacking.
- No RBA Included: That’s a con. I’m going to give all these companies cons when they come out with an RBA after the release of little kits like that. It’s BS. Put the RBA in the Voopoo Navi mod pod kit.
- Slow Charging: I do wish the Voopoo Navi pod mod charged faster. It definitely charges on the slow side.
- No Top Fill: The Voopoo Navi mod pod lacks top fill. You had plenty of real estate on the top there, why didn’t you make this a top fill device? It’s definitely an oversight, it’s a con.
- No Type-C Charging: No type-c charging for the Voopoo Navi pod mod, that’s a con going forward.
- Voopoo Branding: That shitty Voopoo branding. I freaking hate it. I can’t stand it. Why didn’t you make the panels on both sides like a normal company, Voopoo? Nobody wants the name of their mod plastered in big letters on the side of the mod. It sucks. Haven’t you learned anything from your Drag branding? Why do you keep making the same mistakes?
But that’s it on the cons. Nothing that’s really a true deal-breaker.
What’s going on, Insiders? DeucesJack at Vaping Insider. Today, we got another pod/AIO system for you.
I’m talking about the Voopoo Navi.
From Top to Bottom
I got the red one. Let’s open it up. Look at that. Kind of nice looking. I kind of like that black around the edges to the red finish. Check that out. Not bad. Of course, Voopoo cannot help themselves. They love branding even though everybody kills them on it.
And they had to put Voopoo in big letters, and they also had to put Navi Spark Your Life. I guess they didn’t learn their lesson with the Drag. So disappointing. Anyway, there’s your buttons right there, nice and raised. Fire button right there, plus, minus. And you can see, we got a micro USB port right there. On the bottom, it’s got the gene chipset, a little bit of venting.
Take it to the top here, the pod comes off, just like that.
Let’s go over the insides first, then we’ll go over the pod. Over here, you got your two gold plated pins.
They’re going to hit your coil, and that’s what’s going to fire your coil. Over here, you got your draw sensor right here. This is draw or push the button to vape. Either way, it will work.
Here’s your pod right here. Non removable drip tip. It does not move. Kind of like the Smok RPM80, same type of drip tip. It is a 510 filling drip tip, but you cannot replace it. Nice, strong magnets right here, help keep the pod in place. This is where your coil is going to go right there. And here’s one of the little wacky bits about this thing.
See this right here? That’s your tab. In order to fill it, you kind of got to get your fingernails in there and give it a pull. It’s better than most. It’s got a decent-sized fill port. The tab is a little better than most. It’s not that hard to get a grip on. I actually like it. You can kind of swing it out it away as well if you want to. Just try not to pull the back piece out because it is a bitch to get back in. So we’re going to leave that open for now.
On the bottom of the box, you’re going to get this other box. I’m going to show you how to fill up your tank, put the coil in and fill up your tank. Voopoo recommends that you let the coil sit for five minutes in e liquid before you take a pump.
What’s In The Box
Inside said box, you’re going to get a Navi user manual, a warranty card, and you’re going to get two PNP coils. You’re going to get a 0.6ohm PNP coil and a 0.45ohm PNP coil. I like the PNP line of coils. They’re actually pretty good. We’re going to go over them in a little bit more detail. You also get a cable, a micro USB cable for charging. Both coils come sealed like this, press them out like so.
This is the 0.4 ohm PNP coil, good for 25-35W. You can see, it’s mesh. Jesus Christ, Voopoo. You put your name in big enough letters. You think you could mark the coil in a smaller print? My god, man! What do you need, a magnifying glass to read this thing? I’m getting so sick of this from all these companies with the small print on the coils. They put their name in big print but they put the coil parameters in small print. Do me a favor, China. Stop that nonsense and start putting the coils in print that normal people can read.
Here’s the other coil that comes in the kit. Same deal, pop it open just like that. On this coil, the parameters are even tinier. I’ll be honest with you. I can’t even read the parameters and I got glasses on looking at it on the screen. I know that it is the 0.6 coil, but I have no idea what the parameters are. I’ll look them up and put them down for you in the specs. Also, another mesh coil. That is so ridiculously small. It really pisses me off.
The juice we’re using today is some of That 1 Vape’s blackberry custard. First thing you want to do, you want to take the coil with the tiny writing on it, and you just want to give it a little prime.
Get some juice down the middle there, then prime it up on the sides, just like so. Get that cotton flowing. Maybe put a couple more drops down the edge right here, get that cotton started off. Now you take your pod part right here, pop your coil in, just like so. Boom! That’s it. You’re installed. Now it’s time to fill up. Grab that little gasket piece, hold it back. Kind of hold it on a slant like this. Stick your juice bottle nozzle in and just fill it up with some blackberry goodness from That 1 Vape. You guys haven’t tried That 1 Vape juice yet, definitely go check them out. They’re the ones that make that apricot custard that I’m always touting.
Once you got it filled up to the top like that, let that piece go, push it down. And now you might want to let it, even though you primed it, let it sit for a few minutes. Once you let it sit for a few minutes, take your pod, and install it. It clicks in really nice. Hear that? Clicks in really nice, stays in place, I kind of like that.
In order to turn your mod on, five clicks, you get the Voopoo splash screen, Navi and gene chip splash screen, and now you got your beautiful color screen that we’ve all seen before. This is very reminiscent of the Voopoo Vinci screen. Let’s go over the screen real quick. Voopoo branding in the corner, don’t know why that has to be there, battery bar right there, locked or unlocked, W for watts, there is your wattage amount, your puffs, your puff counter in seconds. That is your drawer right there, let you know if you’re an auto or push to vape. You can set that. I’ll show it to you in a minute. There is your resistance, there is your voltage. Pretty simple screen, we’ve seen it before.
Now if you want to change that part right there, go from auto to push to vape. 1, 2, 3, see it went to P?
That means I got to push the button to vape. 1, 2, 3, now it’s on auto.
That means it’s an auto draw, I could just draw on it. 1, 2, 3, I can just do whatever I want. I can push the button or draw on it, either way it will work. Here are your up and down buttons right here. You can see, it scrolls in 1W increments, all the way up to 35W and it’s going to tell you you’re at maximum wattage for this coil.
Now, if I pull the pod out, you can see, it does go all the way up to 40W.
However, it stops you with this coil. Now watch if I put the coil back in.
It goes back down to 30W. So that’s kind of cool. I kind of like that they do that. That’s kind of nice that it doesn’t let you go past the wattage of the coil and it doesn’t allow you to burn the coil out. Kind of cool. I like that about the menu. Hit the plus and fire button, and you can see, it’s locked. That means I can’t vape on it and I can’t adjust the wattage. Hit the plus and fire button again, and it unlocks. Hit the minus and fire button, and it’ll clear your puffs. And that’s it, folks. That’s really the whole menu system. Not much to go over here at all.
Here’s the adjustable airflow right here. See that, right there? it’s kind of sloppy and it’s kind of hard to adjust it in the middle. I wish it was more precise and I wish it had more of a range. I am going to give it a pro for having adjustable airflow on a system like this, but I definitely wish it was more easily adjustable and had more of a range.
Wanted to give you a size comparison between the Voopoo Navi and the Smok Nord 2.
I know they’re kind of different form factors, but they’re both 40W devices, pod/AIO types of kits. And I tell you what, they’re very similar in size. The Navi is a little bit wider. Kind of the same size, right across the top over there. And the Navi with the drip tip, is just a little bit taller, but not by much. Since they’re both 40W devices, I thought it would make a nice comparison. Let me give you a good look at this thing all put together and juiced up.
Let’s go over some of the specs on the Voopoo Navi.
- Dimensions: 96 x 33 x 18mm
- Wattage: 40W maximum
- Battery: 1500mAh
- Juice Capacity: 3.8ml
- Charging: 1amp
- Screen: 0.96-inch color OLED display
- Coils: 6 available + RBA
- Coils in Kit: 0.45ohm mesh coil (25-35W) + 0.6ohm mesh coil (20-28W)
