Voopoo Drag X & Drag S Review

Updated on: 2021-03-30

Five-Star Rating System

OVERALL RATING

– 4.125
We’re going to add all these stars up, we’re going to come out with a total star count of 16.5 stars. We’re going to take those 16. 5 stars, we’re going to divide them by four and we’re going to come up with an average star rating of 4.125 which is probably one of the best ratings I’ve ever given a pod/AIO kit. I love this thing. It is 100% DeucesJack approved.

LOOKS

– 4.5
I already gushed over this thing. I love the looks of it. I’m giving it a solid 4.5 stars.

PERFORMANCE

– 4
coil performance. I already told you, that 0.15ohm coil is just fantastic. The 0.3 and the 0.2 are good as well. But I love that 0.15. I got to ding them a little bit in this department because they didn’t include the RBA head, I would have liked to have seen that. Even with the ding, they’re still getting a solid 4 stars.

AIRFLOW

– 4
It’s fully adjustable and very smooth. I got no issues with it. I’m giving them 4 stars.

VALUE

– 4
I’ve been seeing it anywhere from $40-50 depending on which model. Of course the S is lower priced, the internal battery mod. I gotta be honest with you, for the $10 disparity, I would go with the X. I like the fact that you get 20 more watts. I like the fact that you can switch your battery on the fly. I just think it’s a nicer mod. It’s a little taller. But you also get that 0.15ohm coil. In the value category, I got to give it another 4 stars.

Pros

  • Looks: It is drop dead gorgeous. It is by far the best looking Drag Voopoo has ever made. Period. End of story. I love the subtle branding on the leather. The leather feels nice in your hand. I like the paint finish on it. I like the screen. I like the looks of this thing a lot. They did a beautiful job on it. Kudos to you, Voopoo
  • Build Quality: I already touched on it. It’s got nice build quality.
  • Smooth Airflow: it gets a little loud. But very smooth and a nice restrictive type of poll to it.
  • Adjustable Airflow
  • Great Colors: It comes in some great colors. Did I say I love the looks of this thing? I love the looks of this thing. I like the different leather colors. Big, big pro.
  • Nice Capacity
  • Type-c Charging
  • Simple Menu System
  • Flavor and Clouds on this thing, man. It’s just banging. Especially on that 0.15ohm mesh coil.

Cons

  • Drip Tip: First con is going to be the drip tip. The drip tip. It’s built in. It’s very comfortable, it’s very 510-ish, I just wish it was removable. It’s a con.
  • No RBA Included: You got an RBA mode but you didn’t come out with the kit yet. I don’t like when companies do that. Should have been included in the kit. You should have gotten it done. It’s a con.
  • Drip Tip Gets Hot when Chainvaping: Only happens when I’m vaping the 0.15ohm coil at maximum wattage at 80W. But if I chain vape this thing at 80W, I can feel the heat coming through that plastic. That tip gets a little hot. It’s a nitpicky con, maybe not a lot of people will experience it, but I did and I got to point it out.
  • X Lacks Auto Draw: while the S has auto draw, the X does not. Why? Why did you put an auto draw on one and not on the other? I like the auto draw feature on the S. It’s a con.
  • Badge System: taking up valuable screen space? Why do I even get to look at it? It’s ridiculous. I don’t want bronze, silver and iron badges on my screen that mean nothing to me is a vaper. Give me a break, Voopoo. You guys got to be kidding me, man. You got to stop shooting yourself in the foot with stupid stuff. And that badge screen is stupid. It’s a big con. Every time I look at that screen it just annoys me, man.

Introduction

What’s up, Insiders! How are you guys doing today? Today, I got a little treat for you. We’re going to do a two for one! We’re going over the Drag X and S!

Voopoo DragX DragS

The X is a maximum wattage single 18650 pod/mod kit. And the S is a built-in battery 2500mAh, and it goes up to 60W.

From Top To Bottom

Voopoo mod

Let’s get back to the mod. Nice looking mod, man. Check that out. Nice fire buttons, got a little bit of a raise to it. Those are the up and down buttons. Type-c charging over here. Really, really nice. I like that. Nice, bright, vivid screen. We’ll go over that in a second.

Voopoo mod2

Some more subtle Voopoo branding. Voopoo, I like that. I like this texture here. Really nice kind of texture. And I’m really diggin the Drag part here for once. I like the fact that it’s very subtle. It’s not big bright, they didn’t put it in red lettering. Nice job, Voopoo! Over here, you have some Gene chip branding as well.

Voopoo mod bottom

This is the internal battery one. You can see, you got these little feet on the bottom here. This is a 2500mAh internal battery.

Voopoo mod airflow

Check out that airflow, though. Nice airflow. See this little knob right here? You can open and close that airflow like that. Kind of nice, man. Got stoppers on both ends. Most of the times I’ve been running it like around halfway open like that. Okay, but really, really nice job on this.

Voopoo pod driptip

Now, let’s go over the pod itself. 510 sort of opening. It is an attached drip tip. It does not come off.

Voopoo pod driptip2

Pop it off, just like that. And you can see it’s pretty dry. I will not lie, I do get some condensation and I’ll explain that in a minute.

Voopoo pod driptip3

Here’s your coil right here. And you have three magnets right there. This one is not a magnet right here. It’s like a pin that is holding your fill port gasket in place. Let me show you what I’m talking about. You want to fill this up. You just push it to the side like that, and you fill it up. Nice big opening. I do like that. Needle nose bottles only apply. Once you’re done filling it, you just pop it in just like that.

Voopoo pod tanks section

But overall, a pretty nice looking tank section. I wish it was a little lighter so you can see the juice a little better, but it’s not terrible.

Coil

DragS coil

You can see some Voopoo branding on the coil. Now, if we turn it over here, it says, 0.2ohm. Good for 40-60W.

DragS coil2

This is a mesh coil. Inside, you can see, it’s got that honeycomb type of mesh.

DragS coil3

The second coil you get, you can see it’s a 0.3hm coil. This one’s good for 32-40W.

DragS coil4

And you can see inside, the same type of honeycomb mesh, just a little higher in the resistance category.

DragX coil

Now, just to be clear, when you buy the X kit, you’re going to get the 0.3ohm coil that I just showed you, with the 0.15ohm coil that’s good for 60-80W.

DragX coil2

And look how much tighter that mesh is in there. This coil is absolutely banging. This is the best coil among both kits. You only get it in the X kit. And if I were you, I would buy the X kit just because of this coil. Because this coil is absolutely phenomenal. I like it the best out of all three of them. So just to clear things up. The Drag S gets the 0.2ohm and 0.3ohm coil. The Drag X gets the 0.15ohm coil and the 0.3ohm coil. I just want to make sure you’re aware of that before you go out and buy this kit. I wanted to be clear about it.

Menu Screen

Juice Test

Voopoo juice test

Juice we’re going to be using today is Johnny’s Juice, All Over Her Face. It’s like a peach nectarine and cream juice.

Voopoo juice test2

First thing you want to do, you want to take your juice bottle, and you just want to prime that coil a little bit. Put a little juice down the middle there, and then just prime your wicking ports. Very, very simple. Just get them started with some juice.

Voopoo juice test3

Once you’re all primed up, take your pod, take your coil, and it’s just boom, baby. Plug and play. You just pop it right in there just like so.

Voopoo juice test4

Once you’re done popping it in there, pull your little gasket to the side there, maybe hold it down with your finger. Take your juice bottle and give it a nice squeeze. Once it’s all filled up, take your little gasket, pop it in there, make sure it’s nice and flush. And even though you primed it, you might want to let it sit for a couple of minutes.

Voopoo gold plated

While we’re letting that sit. Let’s go over the interior here. You can see, you have three gold plated contacts right here, you have this ledge, see that? See that ledge right there? You have this ledge. And the interesting thing is, see how the coil kind of hangs below? When you pop the coil in there, the magnets stick to the ledge, yet the coil makes contact with the contacts. It’s a nice system, I have no issues with it. My only issue is every once in a while I get some condensation in here, under here, where I’m showing you. And once in a while it might build up enough to come out the airflow. What I do is I kind of put my mouth over this whole part and I blow out to get some of the condensation out of there. It’s definitely not leaking, it’s just condensation. Because I guess the heat that the coil is generating is generating some condensation underneath here.

Voopoo gold plated2

So I just want you to be aware of that if you get any type of liquid coming out of here, it’s more likely condensation. Because I have put like four or five coils through these tanks already. They have not leaked, they’ve been pretty dry.

Size Comparison

Voopoo x s comparison

Let me show them to you side by side. You can see the S is slightly shorter than the X. Honestly, if I got a choice between buying the two, I’m going with the external battery one, the x, every day and twice on Sunday.

Voopoo comparison

I think for a size comparison, a good line to compare it against would be the Vaporesso Pm line. This is the internal battery Vaporesso. This is the external battery Vaporesso. So you can see, very, very similar to the X. The X is a little bigger, but also looks a little nicer. Same thing on the other side here. The S is a little bigger, but again, looks like a more high quality mod. Let me show you what I’m talking about. I mean, look, the build quality wise, man. I just think the X beats it. Hands down against the Vaporesso. Same thing on the S, it just looks like a more solidly built pod system and both of them vape very much like each other. But I like the looks of the S much better.

What’s In The Box

Voopoo included kit

Also included in the packaging, you’re going to get a type-c USB cable. That’s kind of nice. I like that. You’re going to get two coils .
