Voopoo Alpha One 222W Review

Today, the review will deal with the box mod, which has become a “ugly duckling,” a battery pack from the Chinese company Voopoo – Alpha One 222W.

The company Voopoo vigorously broke into the market with its box-office DRAG, which sold huge quantities on the shelves of the Weipes and collections of users. Chip Gene, on which the device was built, the manufacturer named no less than the killer DNA. And although this can certainly be argued, the fact remains that the device was very successful and almost immediately made the manufacturer famous. “Hot on the trail” after the release of its hit, the Chinese released and the second box on the same chip, but with a “swinging” to 222W power and with a different design. The device has turned out to be ambiguous and many surveyors have been met far less affably than the previous device. In the meantime, the company is preparing to introduce its next development – Voopoo Too, let’s take a look at the “ugly duckling” – Voopoo Alpha One, which the manufacturer had high hopes for, and try to figure out why they did not materialize.

Already the packaging itself prepares us for a retro design, which impregnates the entire box mod. The device arrives in a stylish black-and-red box with foil strips and large α and I, which conceal the name of the Alpha One device itself. At the bottom there is a small inscription Start Next-Gen Vape, exceptional modesty from Voopoo. On the reverse side, the delivery kit is listed, there are warnings on use and age limitation (21+), a bunch of different pictograms and a sticker with a verification code for the authenticity of the products. On the red part there is a small gray circle indicating that inside the silver case, one of two possible options.

Micro USB cable
User manual and warranty card
The set is not rich, there is only a short, short cable and a couple of standard booklets: a warranty card and a detailed instruction with illustrations in English, which can theoretically be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website. Theoretically, because the button on the Download page is simply inactive.

Someone reminds Alpha One of an old cassette player, someone a Soviet VCR “Electronics VM-12”, someone the legendary radio receiver “Ocean”. If the boxmod was a work of art, it could easily be attributed to constructivism: “rigor, geometrism, laconism of forms and monolithic appearance.” Appearance of the manufacturer put in the forefront and called it Geometric Minimalist Design, it can be called not only as an “amateur”. Namely, a fan of retro design and simple forms without any soap-like fillets and large color screens. It is immediately evident that this is not a toy, there is not a single rounded or slanted corner in our device, it has exclusively straight shapes. This design for some reason causes the impression of reliability, that among Chinese devices is rare. Can the inscription on the packaging Designed in California have a real ground?

When I wrote about the “angularity” of Voopoo Drag, I did not hold “alpha” in my hands. And it can cause severe injuries to yourself or others, especially if you apply with all your might: impressive weight, very sharp angles and facets, minimal chamfers, which practically do not save. In general, the ergonomics of the device loses even to the old “sigelians” and receives from the five possible points the deserved “minus one hundred”. The color of the cover of the hull is silvery, the lid is gray-brown. The metal cover of the battery compartment has an texture resembling radiator fins, in fact, it serves as a cooling, removing heat when heated. On the lid on one side there is a small insert with the logo of the device α-I, with another white paint the inscription Vape It Your Vape.

In addition to the gray design discussed in this review, there is also Black, completely black. In my opinion, he still loses in the “vintage” silvery Voopoo Alpha One.

VOOPOO Alpha one 222W TC Box Mod review

Ouch. That was my key takeaway from the first time I held the Voopoo Alpha One box mod. Not only because of the sharp, angular corners of the device, but also because the overall throwback design made me think of an original Sony Walkman. Which I am old enough to have owned.

One of the above pain points might just be my middle age coming to light. But the other one played a big role in forming my opinion of the Voopoo Alpha One mod. Read on to find out why.
Voopoo Alpha One
It’s funny that the tagline on the Alpha One box claims the contents are a “next gen vape,” because the overall name of the game is retro, baby. From the pinstriped sliding box, to the device’s 1980s VCR aesthetics, everything about the Voopoo Alpha One screams neon and big hair. You can practically hear Motley Crue blaring from the speakers.

Heck, even the little card advertising the Gene chipset uses the term, “Born for fever.” If that isn’t an ‘80s line, I don’t know what is.

Jokes aside, the throwback look certainly makes a strong first impression. The razor sharp edges, large but minimalist fire and control buttons, and ripple-textured battery door don’t look like anything else on the market right now. It’s a box, in every sense of the word, but it’s a stylish one.

The bomb-proof 510 connection is secured by two hex screws, and has stylish, but subtle airflow channels beveled into the metal. The spring-loaded, gold-plated pin accommodated every tank I used on the Alpha One, with nary a gap to be had.

The bottom of the device is spartan, but has a nice cross-shaped vent section to redirect some heat from the rest of the anodized frame.

Picking up the device might change your opinion, however. Even without batteries, the Voopoo Alpha One is a heavy device that leaves an impression of its own – right in the soft spots of your palm.

Maybe my hands are delicate – it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been accused of this – but the Voopoo Alpha One might be the most uncomfortable mod I’ve ever used. Once I put a pair of 18650s in, the Alpha One only dug deeper into my palm, and firing it forced me to position the back end flat against my hand, limiting its portability considerably.
