The VOOPOO DRAG X 80W Pod Mod Kit is an extremely powerful hybrid device that’s innovative and super simple to use. It boasts a beautiful faux leather handgrip, adjustable airflow lever, and brand new game orientated GENE chipset. Dare I say it’s the best looking pod mod released so far in 2020. But how does it compare to the very similar VINCI X? Keep reading to find out which one we would recommend and also why.

VOOPOO is a significant Chinese vape manufacturer that boasts a rich and long history. The company was first established in 2010. It then acquired the USA based Woody Vapes in 2016. A few years later the first-ever DRAG device was released. The much-loved and iconic 157W Box Mod sparked innovation within the industry. Establishing new norms like instant fire and also smart chipset technology.

The VOOPOO DRAG X 80W Pod Mod Kit is a compact and stylish device. Measuring in at just 95mm’s by 32.5mm’s by 28mm’s. The main chassis can accommodate a single 18650 battery. It can output a very impressive 5 to 80 watts. That’s an extra 10 watts on the Vinic X. It’s made from a lightweight, but very strong Zinc-Alloy, and boasts a pinstripe stitched leather handgrip that’s a joy to hold.

The next-generation GENE.TT Chipset can fire within 0.001 seconds, record your puffs, and features multiple modes that include RBA. It also comes bundled with a new score ranking system that adds a little fun into the mix. Based on your draw, you can unlock different tiered levels. I think stuff like this can help keep smokers and also long term vapers engaged with the product.

The front face of the DRAG X Pod Mod features a responsive fire button, crystal clear display screen, and also two adjustment buttons. On the back is a lever-action airflow system. This allows you to fully adjust your airflow as desired. I initially thought the lever would get in the way, but both finger and thumb firing is undisturbed. I was easily able to achieve a tight MTL draw and airy DTL drag.

On top is a 4.5ml eliquid capacity cartridge that can be refilled. The coils are press-fit and the connection is magnetic. The mouthpiece is wide and circular. It feels much better on my lips compared to the VINIC X duckbill. All PnP coils are compatible with the DRAG X. The kit comes with a new 0.15ohm PnP-VM6 coil that’s rated for 60 to 80 watts. It performed superbly. The flavor was amazing and the airflow was buttery smooth.

The VOOPOO DRAG X 80W Pod Mod Kit comes in different colored faux leather grip colors. This includes classic, retro, carbon fiber, mashup, chestnut, marsala, and also galaxy blue. This device will turn heads. The overall design is luxe and progressive. The packaging is relatively simple. A white box with a nice image on the front face. Inside you’ll find your Drag X, cartridge, 2 x coils, USB-C charging cable, and also a user manual.
