I’ve said it before, but when it comes to vaping, size is overrated. Sure, I’ll never give up my 200+ watt cloud machines, but there’s also something to be said for a compact, high-performing device that can handle some power without taking up an entire cup holder in your SUV. And my favorite new vape mod fitting that description? The Voopoo Mojo R 88W, equipped this time with the Conjure RDA. This Voopoo device, and several others, are available now at Element Vape
This totally unique, palm-sized powerhouse immediately catches the eye with a narrow, angular design, and two large silver buttons that resemble hinges or a pivot point, not control buttons. But, despite the confusing look, they work beautifully.
Rather than putting a pair of small buttons on the face of the Mojo, Voopoo decided to use these large cylinders as the up/down controls. This frees up the face from being cluttered, while also adding something new to a typically overlooked design element. I credit Voopoo for trying something new here – not all will like “re-learning” how to control their mod, but I loved it from the moment I tried it.
With pocket-friendly size comes narrower surfaces, and the 24mm width of the Mojo means some of today’s higher-powered tanks and drippers will have some overhang – nothing tragic, but those seeking symmetry will want to put their smaller atomizers to use here. The included Conjure RDA is a perfect fit, despite its odd translucent appearance, but most of my tanks and RDAs fit well enough that they seemed uniform.
One thing to keep in mind is the tall, stiff, spring-loaded 510 connection, which made a few tanks in my collection protrude a little higher than the connector plate. Again, nothing that should cause alarm, but people who like a flush, gap-free connection might want to test a few tanks before dropping the cash on the Voopoo Mojo.
The side-positioned OLED screen is standard-issue stuff for mods like this, so I was neither pleased nor disappointed with the display. The pertinent information is there, and menu navigation (a familiar 3-click/long-press scheme) is simple for both veterans and newcomers. Sure, I would have loved such a forward-thinking mod design to have a more advanced screen, but given the size of the Mojo, it’s really hard to complain.

This tiny device packs a pretty good punch for the size. Capable of a true 88-watt output, using an integrated 2,600mAh battery, there’s an awful lot of technology packed into a minimal footprint. Yet the mod never gets hot or uncomfortable, even when chain vaping at maximum wattage.
How is this possible? Because internally, the Mojo isn’t so simple. In fact, even as a lower-wattage device, Voopoo gave the Mojo a full temperature control suite, and a large array of protection measures so newcomers don’t push the mod past its capabilities. This is due to the modified GENE chipset residing under the hood.
Normally, we’re used to the GENE chips powering much more advanced devices, but the simplified version here does a hell of a job keeping the Mojo kicking, while remaining efficient and comfortable to use. Very impressive, considering how easy it would have been for Voopoo to install something cheaper, and letting the design do the selling for them.
Also included in the kit is the squatty, bulbous, odd-looking Conjure RDA. Normally, I wouldn’t care about looks, as long as the thing worked. But here, the MTL-focused dripper doesn’t really fit the aesthetic of the device/kit, nor does it work particularly well.
Sure, it’s a low-capacity, entry-level dripper, but I get the feeling more Mojo customers would prefer an MTL tank or even a smaller sub-ohm offering, rather than an RDA they’ll have to top off every few puffs (as was the case here).
Taken for what it is, I found the Conjure to offer a stiff, restricted lung draw that was neither snug enough for true MTL enthusiasts, nor loose enough to keep sub-ohmers satisfied. The coil installation was simple, thanks to the “one step” postless build deck, and the juice flow ensured there weren’t many dry hits. But I can’t help but think most users will swap out the Conjure for a tank sooner rather than later.
Observations While Vaping
Despite the odd pairing within the kit, I found the Mojo was a rock-solid performer with virtually any tank, RTA and dripper in my collection. And, to be honest, I think Voopoo should consider repositioning the Mojo to mid-wattage vapers, since the thing puts out a lot of power from a small package.
Ramp time was more than adequate, and performance was free of pulsing and stuttering, even when approaching the 88-watt maximum output. Maybe the 2,600mAh internal battery won’t be a “workhorse” in your collection, but those vaping at moderate wattages should get through most of a workday before having to plug in the USB charger.
(On that note, the onboard charging is among the fastest we’ve seen for devices in this category. I went from near-empty to full in just over an hour – not too shabby, GENE chip… not too shabby.)
Beyond all the details and stats, perhaps the most notable thing I observed about the Mojo was just how often I went back to it, even with bigger, more powerful devices at my disposal. There was just something about the heft, hand-feel, fast-ramping performance and overall experience that made me love using it. And I don’t see this fading anytime soon.
A week ago, if you had told me a bright orange, thumb-activated, MTL-focused mod would become one of the surprise hits of my collection, I’d have laughed myself into a coma. Today, I’m not laughing. Because the Voopoo Mojo R kit has been a very pleasant surprise. Its near flawless performance, versatility and completely unique look and feel make it a standout in a very redundant category of vape devices.
I fully expect to be discussing the Mojo again toward the end of the year (likely more than once), when we round up the best beginner and mid-wattage devices. No, the Conjure RDA isn’t worth much, but the mod is worth having, no matter which atomizer you plan to attach to it. Very, very impressive overall.
