Our Verdict

The DRAG E60 and DRAG H80S are two great pod devices, but which one should you choose? They both come with the PnP POD II Tank, which delivers excellent flavor, smooth draws, and great DL or RDL vaping performance. They also both use the same chipset. One isn’t necessarily better than the other, so the choice of getting one over the other is going to come down to two things: size and preferred wattage.

The E60 is smaller and more compact, but it has a built-in and non-removable battery. It’s a large one though, and 2550mAh is nothing to scoff at. You get the 0.20Ω coil and the 0.30Ω coil with this device, however I don’t recommend getting the 0.15Ω coil to use with the E60. It has high amperage demands, and I’m just not sure if the internal battery can safely handle it. When using the two included coils though, the 0.30Ω coil will get you decent battery life and usage times, while the 0.20Ω coil at 60W will quickly run your battery down. 

The H80S is larger than the E60, but it’s still smaller than VOOPOO’s DRAG X pod mod. This is the device to get if you have multiple 18650 batteries on the go, and if you want the absolute best coil that the PnP line has to offer: the 0.15Ω coil. This coil delivers notably better flavor than the 0.20Ω and 0.30Ω coils, but it also has higher wattage and amperage demands, so make sure you get a good battery that is rated for 25A+. Because of the external battery, you have the option of swapping out batteries when it dies, making it a better choice for high wattage vaping.

The short and sweet of it is this: both the E60 and H80S are great pod devices, but if you want something smaller to vape at lower wattages, get the E60. If you don’t mind a larger device and want to vape at higher wattages, go with the H80S.

BUY DRAG E60

BUY DRAG H80S

The DRAG E60 & DRAG H80S are two new pod devices from VOOPOO. The DRAG E60 is more of a ‘traditional’ pod vape as it packs an internal 2550mAh battery, while the DRAG H80S is a pod mod that takes an external 18650 battery

While these two devices may look very different at first glance, they are actually extremely similar, hence why I am including them both in one review. Both devices use the same chipset, have the same UI, modes, and features, and both use VOOPOO’s new PnP POD II which is compatible with all PnP coils.

As the latest additions to VOOPOO’s ‘DRAG’ line of products, these two new devices have a lot to live up to. Some of VOOPOO’s other DRAG products that we’ve reviewed include the DRAG Q pod vape, the DRAG X PnP-X Kit, and the DRAG S PnP-X Kit. VOOPOO’s DRAG products are their ‘flagship’ devices, and so I expect to see flagship performance from these two pod devices.

Are either of these new DRAG devices worth picking up? Which one should you get? You’ll find out in this review.

Design & Build Quality

  • VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - 5

The DRAG E60 and H80S are essentially the same device, with the same chipset, features, and modes, but the design for each device is quite different. 

The DRAG E60 is the smaller and more compact device of the two. It has a rectangular shape that is 94mm tall, 24.9mm wide, and 46mm deep. It’s definitely not the smallest or lightest pod vape out there, but it feels very solid and well constructed. The E60 houses a 2550mAh built-in battery, which is a very large battery for a pod vape of this size.

The DRAG H80S is most similar to VOOPOO’s DRAG X pod mod, but it’s 15% smaller at 123mm tall, 26mm wide, and 32mm deep. The H80S takes a single 18650 battery to function, making it a pod mod by definition. 

With a battery installed, the DRAG H80S is definitely heavier than the E60, but not by much. Both devices have some heft to them so weight shouldn’t be your deciding factor between which one you choose. The E60 is also shorter and slimmer than the H80S but it’s much deeper, while the H80S is taller and wider, but not as deep.

Both devices are made of zinc alloy, aluminum alloy, and leather. The H80S is available in 6 colors: Plum Red, Gray Carbon, Red, Brown, Golden, and Black. The E60 is available in 6 colors as well: Golden, Pink, Gray, Black, Coffee, and Carbon Fiber. For this review, I am using the E60 in Coffee color, which has a matte black frame and brown leather panel, and the Gray Carbon H80S, which has a satin dark gray frame and a dark gray carbon fiber weave panel.

VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - 2

Both panels look and feel great and seem to be very high quality. The brown leather panel on my E60 looks and feels like real leather. There is matching brown stitching that contours the panel, which is a nice touch. There is also a metal DRAG logo stamped into the panel. 

The panel carbon fiber weave panel on the H80S is also very nice, and it has a large DRAG logo embossed into the leather. The leather panel on the H80S is also the battery door and it’s held to the device by two strong magnets. Inside, there’s a spring-loaded negative battery terminal and room for a single 18650 battery. The battery door fits perfectly with the device, so much so that you wouldn’t know that it was removable just by looking at it.

Both devices feature large, slightly concave and round power/fire buttons, located at the on the front-top of the devices. The buttons feel good and they are responsive, but they are not fixed in position and spin when you go to press them. The H80S has two separate, round adjustment buttons below the screen, while the E60 has two adjustment buttons that are connected together. Below the buttons on each device there is a Type-C charging port.

At the top of the tank is where the PnP POD II Tank connects. Just below this connection, on the sides of each device, there are two open slots. The topmost slot allows you to see your ejuice level when the pod is inserted, without having to remove it from the device. The bottom slot is for the airflow adjustment, which leads me to the next section of this review.


PnP POD II Tank & Airflow

VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - PnP POD II Tank 2

The DRAG E60 and DRAG H80S both come with VOOPOO’s newest pod tank, the PnP POD II Tank. This tank will hold up to 4.5ml of ejuice and it attaches magnetically on top of each device. When the pod is inserted, you can hold and rotate the entire pod and this is how you adjust the airflow. 

There is an airflow slot on each side of the device, and you can adjust it in a few different ways. You can have both slots open or closed, both slots open anywhere in-between, or (only on the H80S) you can close off one slot completely and adjust just a single airflow slot.

These are direct lung devices and I was not able to achieve a MTL vape from either device, even when using the 0.4Ω coil. You can expect to get a good DL vape from both devices and from the included coils. However, you can manage a great RDL vape from the H80S by closing off one of the airflow slots and leaving the other only slightly open. You can still RDL on the E60, but the RDL vape from the H80S is much better due to the ability to close off one of the airflow slots completely.

VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - PnP POD II Tank

Both devices come with a PnP TW30 0.3Ω coil (rated for 28-36W) . In addition to this coil, the DRAG E60 comes with a PnP-TW20 0.2Ω coil (40-55W) and the DRAG H80S comes with a PnP-TW15 0.15Ω coil (55-70W). These coils push-fit into the bottom of the pod and you do not need to line up any notches when inserting them.

All three of these coils are mesh coils and they all use VOOPOO’s “Dual In One Tech”. These coils can easily be told apart from VOOPOO’s other PnP coils by the purple o-rings on the coils. Apparently, this Dual In One Tech is supposed to produce better flavor and consume less ejuice. 

The PnP POD Tank is also compatible with VOOPOO’s entire line of PnP coils and there are a lot of them. In total, there are 12 PnP coils that can be purchased separately. Because these pods use the PnP coils which are used by many of VOOPOO’s other devices, you can be pretty sure that they will continue to be available. That’s a good sign for these devices because it means that you will still be able to find these coils long into the future.

VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - PnP POD II Tank Fill Ports

Twisting the drip tip counter-clockwise will remove the top cap and give you access to the fill ports. The fill ports are slightly recessed inside the top of the tank and there’s a rubber/silicone layer here to prevent leaking. There are two fill ports, both of which have a rubber membrane. To fill, push your e juice bottle tip in and through the membrane and fill the tank. When you remove the tip, the membrane will self-close.


Features & Functions: DRAG E60 & DRAG H80S

VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - 4

Both the E60 and the H80S use the same GENE T.T 2.0 chipset, and so they both have the same features and modes. The real difference between the two here is that the H80S can fire at up to 80W, while the E60 goes up to a max of 60W.

The screens are crisp and the UI is nice. Both devices show the same information on the screen: a battery indicator with percentage, your mode, wattage, coil resistance, voltage, a puff counter, and puff time.

These are easy to use devices because there aren’t many modes or settings to choose from. This also makes them relatively bare-bones as far as features are concerned, so if you’re expecting a ton of functionality and customization options then you’ll be disappointed. This simplicity makes them excellent for new vapers though, or any vaper who just wants a simple device.

Holding both adjustment buttons together will bring up the menu. You can switch between the three available modes (SMART, RBA, ECO), reset the puff counter, or check the software information.

SMART mode is the one that most vapers will want to use for everyday vaping. It automatically adjusts the wattage to an ideal level when you insert the pod with a different coil (for instance, the 0.3Ω coil will get set to 35W), and sets a maximum wattage that you can’t go past. This prevents you from pumping too much wattage through the coil and potentially getting a dry or burnt hit. 

RBA mode unlocks these wattage constraints and will allow you to set the wattage to wherever you like for each coil. This mode will also automatically set the wattage when you insert the pod with a different coil, but again, you can set the wattage to wherever you like. This mode is also what you would use if you pick up the RBA PnP Coil.

ECO mode is there to save battery and VOOPOO says that this mode will provide up to 10% more puffs when activated. A prompt asking you to activate ECO mode will pop up when you reach 40% battery. With ECO mode on, the screen is dimmed and the performance is reduced, so it’s a tradeoff of performance for battery life. I can definitely feel a difference with ECO mode on and the draws feel slightly weaker and the vapor is cooler, so I did not like using it. However, I can see this mode being useful if you’re out for the day and find your battery getting low, so it’s a nice feature to have access to.


Performance

VOOPOO DRAG E60 & H80S - 1

For this review, I tested the three PnP coils that you get with these kits: the 0.15Ω coil, 0.20Ω coil, and 0.3Ω coil. I used a 6mg regular nicotine ejuice for all three coils.

I’ll start off with the best coil and that would be the 0.15Ω coil. This coil is rated for 55-70W and performs really well at anywhere from 60-65W. The flavor is really great and comes with nice, warm vapor at this wattage range. Leaving the airflow wide open is how I preferred to vape this coil, but closing the airflow slightly is good as well. The airflow is a little loud, but it’s very smooth and free of any turbulence.

I think that the 0.15Ω coil is the best out of the three PnP coils that you get with these kits, but it’s also the most power hungry. A single 18650 battery doesn’t go a long way when you’re vaping at 65W, so that’s the expected but unfortunate downside to this coil.

The 0.20Ω coil delivers performance that is just a notch below the 0.15Ω coil. The flavor is still great and warm at 60W with the airflow slightly closed, but there is slightly less flavor recreation here. This is the coil that comes with the E60 and, even though it has a 2550mAh battery, it again isn’t going to last very long at 60W. While it does last though, it’s a very enjoyable coil to vape with and the PnP Pod II Tank definitely delivers on flavor and performance.

Last but not least is the 0.30Ω coil. This coil works great at the 35W that the device sets it to. I liked to close off the airflow most of the way for this coil. This is the coil to use if you want to get the most battery life out of your coil, but it’s also the least flavorful. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great coil, but the other two coils deliver better flavor.

While I’ve had a little bit of condensation under the pods, I have not experienced any leaking, spitback, gurgling, or popping with any of the coils in these pods. VOOPOO seems to have done a good job with the PnP Pod II Tank in this regard.


Verdict

The DRAG E60 and DRAG H80S are two great pod devices, but which one should you choose? They both come with the PnP POD II Tank, which delivers excellent flavor, smooth draws, and great DL or RDL vaping performance. They also both use the same chipset.

I started vaping in 2013, determined to quit smoking because I knew it was a terrible habit. Many hard years later, I'm smoke-free and feeling better than ever! I love trying as many different tanks, mods, and ejuices as I can get my hands on, but I love sharing my experiences and honest opinions even more! When I'm not reviewing, researching, or writing, you can find me watching tennis, tinkering with coils, or playing with my two mischievous cats.
