Voopoo Drag X Plus

Voopoo Drag X Plus review by Antony Lord

The Electronic Cigarette Company (TECC) asked if we’d like to take a look at the latest offering from Voopoo, the Drag X Plus. This is brand new territory for the Drag series which has previously been dual battery box mods and PnP pod kits as this is a single 21700 mod….with an actual 510 plate, which is becoming something of a rarity!

Voopoo Drag X Plus contents

The Drag X Plus Kit comes in simple packaging with the Drag X Plus, the new TPP tank (plus 2 coils), micro USB cable, and hidden in the battery compartment there’s an 18650 battery adapter.


  • 88 x 28.6 x 35 mm
  • 68.3g (Drag X Plus mod)
  • External 21700 battery
  • Output 5~100W 
  • Resistance range 0.1~3.0ohms
  • TPP tank 5.5ml (2ml for TPD) [also compatible with PnP pods]

Voopoo Drag X Plus mod and tank

The Drag X Plus Kit comes in a variety of colours and I was sent the “Sandy Brown” option for review, this has a nice gunmetal finish on the chassis with a “leather” grip around the back of the mod. As this is a single 21700 battery affair, it’s much easier to hold than its dual battery counterpart, especially if you have smaller hands like myself, and the grip has a slightly suede/raw leather feel to it which is lightly padded making this extremely comfortable to hold. Branding on this is actually fairly understated for once for a Voopoo product, with the main branding being an embossed “Drag X Plus” on the grip which gives the mod a more understated and classical look. I like it… more of this please Voopoo!

The 510 plate is ever so slightly raised up from the top of the mod which should reduce the risk of atty rash but it’s very minimal so you shouldn’t experience any obvious gapping with your atomizers. Bizarrely, the Drag X Plus will actually accommodate larger atomizers than the dual battery Drag 3, there’s room up top here for a 25mm atty whereas the Drag 3 can only handle 23.9mm attys without visible overhang.

Voopoo Drag X Plus battery and screen

Batteries are inserted from the underside on a hinged cover, this has been rock solid in use and there’s little danger of this accidentally opening in pockets and the like. The inner battery tube is plastic which reduces the risk of shorts, and I’ve had no issues using my oversized 21700s in here too so it’s a pass all round on that front.

As with other recent Drag kits, there’s a vibrant colour screen which is easy to read even when outside. The control buttons all have a very satisfying click to them with absolutely no button rattle, and they’re all well positioned for either thumb or finger firing. Performance from the Gene Fan 2.0 chip has been great as you would expect, but out of the box you're limited to just two wattage modes, the first of which limits the power available depending on your coil to prevent newcomers burning out stock coils. There is an optional firmware update available at should you want access to more advanced features like temperature control.

One minor annoyance I do have with the chip is that it goes into a “deep sleep” mode after 30 minutes which then requires you to press the fire button twice before you can vape again. The output voltage isn’t stated anywhere online or in the manual, but in my tests this appears to be limited to 4.2 volts or the current voltage of your battery (whichever is lower) which suggests that this doesn’t have any boost/buck capability which is a big disappointment.

Rapid charging is available via the USB-C port if needed, however I suggest using a dedicated charger whenever possible. 

Included in the kit is the new Voopoo TPP tank which consists of a 510 base/airflow with a plastic tank which shares more in common with modern pod kits. As this kit came from the UK based TECC, it of course came with the dreaded 2ml bung. Luckily this wasn’t too challenging to remove to unleash the full 5.5ml capacity.

I used this on my Drag 3 and am happy to report that this and the new TPP coils are some of the best available currently. The coils actually have three connectors (two negative, one positive?) which effectively makes them a dual coil setup to ensure more even heating which seems to work very well, although it is disappointing that the coil material doesn’t seem to be documented anywhere so use with caution if you’re nickel sensitive. The coils are both a full blown lung hit, however as an added bonus the 510 base/airflow is also compatible with PnP pods and coils if you’re more comfortable with those.

Voopoo Drag X Plus pnp coils


  • Comfortable to use and feels well put together
  • 21700 battery
  • An actual proper mod with a 510 connector!
  • Great vape from the TPP coils
  • Compatible with PnP pods/coils or use your own atomizer


  • Coil material not stated for the TPP coils
  • Deep sleep mode after 30 minutes
  • Doesn’t appear to have boost/buck functionality


I have quite a few Voopoo devices and something I always thought was missing from the lineup was a classic single battery mod. This answers that call and I have to say it’s my favourite Voopoo device so far. One major disappointment is that there doesn’t appear to be any boost/buck capability so bear that in mind if you regularly vape over 4.2volts! If you prefer smaller mods or simply find dual battery mods too big and cumbersome, then this is definitely worth seeking out and The Electronic Cigarette Company (TECC) currently have the full Drag X Plus Kit listed at a not unreasonable £39.99.

Many thanks to The Electronic Cigarette Company (TECC) for sending the Drag X Plus Kit out for review.

I was a twenty a day smoker for 25 years and like most smokers I was always going to quit "next week". Having hit my mid forties and having the usual smokers cough and difficulty with anything more than moderate exercise it was obviously time to give up the cancer sticks. I bought my first e-cigarette in 2013 when they were expensive, difficult to find and quite frankly... crap. I used it for about a week then went back to the roll ups, mark up another failed quit attempt. The fact that I had just changed jobs and was under quite a lot of stress probably didn't help. Move on to 2016 and whilst I was browsing eBay I noticed that one of the suggested items that would occasionally pop up was for a cheap e-cigarette. It looked similar to the one I'd bought 3 years earlier but it was only £5 (about 8 times cheaper than before) so I decided to give it another go on a whim. Once the kit arrived I managed to gradually replace the cigarettes with my new kit over a two month period and got into watching YouTube reviews for newer kit. My cheap and cheerful kit was replaced by a more upmarket affair, and being a noob I made a mistake once it arrived... I put in the supplied direct lung coil, this was of course a complete revelation and I haven't touched a cigarette since. Oh and I no longer spend the first five minutes of every day having a coughing fit either.
