How can I prove that Drag 3 and its dynamic TPP-X coils is one of the standout for 2023? Well, let me break it down for you.
We’ve got 4 fantastic coils to consider – the DM1 to DM4. Personally, I lean toward the DM2, but it’s a close call.
But I got you, I will give you choices. Now, there’s been some chatter about the battery case opening, but honestly, it’s a matter of personal preference. I actually quite like it and it doesn’t bother me one bit.

Versatility of DRAG 3 TPP-X Coils
This kit offers compatibility with the Voopoo TPP Coil series, providing a range of options to suit your preferences. Let’s dive into the specifics of these remarkable coils:
- TPP-DM1 Coils (0.15ohm): These coils are the powerhouses of the series, offering a broad wattage range of 60-80W. Whether you prefer a smooth draw or dense clouds, the TPP-DM1 coils deliver a fantastic vaping experience.
- TPP-DM2 Coils (0.2ohm): If you’re looking for a slightly cooler and more flavorful vape, the TPP-DM2 coils are the perfect choice. Rated for 40-60W, they balance power and flavor exceptionally well.
- TPP-DM3 Coils (0.15ohm): For those who crave high-wattage vaping, the TPP-DM3 coils are rated for an impressive 80-100W. These coils generate intense clouds while maintaining exceptional flavor production.
- TPP-DM4 Coils (0.3ohm): When you desire a more moderate vaping experience, the TPP-DM4 coils are here for you, rated for 32-40W. They offer a balance of flavor and vapor production, making them perfect for extended vaping sessions.
VooPoo claims these coils boast a larger surface area inside and quick heat-up capabilities. The 0.15ohm coil is recommended for a wattage range of 60-80W, with VooPoo’s sweet spot falling between 65-75W.
When I start at 65W, I notice warm vapor and decent flavor, but I sense there’s room for improvement. Bumping the wattage up to 70W offers a slightly warmer vapor, which I prefer, and the flavor becomes notably better. Vaping at 75-80W cranks up the heat, but the flavor gains aren’t significant compared to 70W.
So, my personal choice for this coil settles at 70W, where you get the best flavor, and the vapor feels nice and toasty.
How to Change Coil
Here’s a step-by-step guide how to change it:
- Step 1: Get your Drag X and the Fog Father menthol flavor with zero milligrams of nicotine ready.
- Step 2: Start by snapping the pod back into place; most pods, including this one, use a magnetic connection for easy setup.
- Step 3: Turn your Drag X on its side and gently pull out the old coil from the bottom – make sure to save any remaining e-liquid if there’s some left.
- Step 4: Take your e-liquid bottle and drip it directly onto the new coil, making sure to saturate all four holes on the coil to prevent burning.
- Step 5: Slide the new coil back into place until it clicks securely.
- Step 6: Fill up your tank with e-liquid – if you have the extended 4-milliliter tank, use it for added capacity.
- Step 7: Put the magnetic lid back on the tank, and it should snap into place effortlessly.
- Step 8: Customize your vaping experience by adjusting the airflow to your preference; simply slide it to achieve the desired resistance.
- Step 9: Vape and Enjoy
Your fresh coil is ready to go, and your TPP-X coils is set to deliver a satisfying vaping experience with excellent flavor.
Performance and User Experience
First things first, flavor is what truly makes or breaks a vaping experience for me. The Drag X comes with two coil options – the 0.15-ohm and the 0.20-ohm.
The 0.15-ohm coil is recommended to be used between 65-75W. At 65W, I got warm vapor and a decent flavor. But I was curious to see how far it could go. So, I bumped it up to 70W, and that’s where things got interesting. The vapor was warmer, and the flavor noticeably improved. Venturing into 75-80W territory, the vapor got hot, but the flavor didn’t step up as much as I’d hoped.
Now, the 0.20-ohm coil is suggested for 50-55W. I started at 50W and found the flavor to be okay, but it was on the cooler side. Increasing it to 55W was where the magic happened. The vapor was warmer, and the flavor truly shone. 60W was warmer still, but not hot.
Now, let’s talk about coil longevity. No one likes changing coils constantly, right? I was pleasantly surprised by how long the VooPoo Drag TPP-X coils held up. The 0.15-ohm coil lasted me a good while, even at my preferred 70W. I was getting roughly two weeks of solid performance before I noticed any dip in flavor.
The 0.20-ohm coil also impressed me in terms of longevity. It easily powered through two weeks of regular use without a significant loss in flavor.
Of course, your mileage may vary depending on your vaping habits, but I found these coils to be quite durable. It’s also backed up by solid coil longevity, so you won’t find yourself constantly swapping them out.
So there you have it – my firsthand experience with the Voopoo Drag X’s performance in flavor and coil longevity.
Tips for Using Maintaining Coils
Here are the tips for using coils effectively, focusing on wattage and temperature settings, as well as coil priming and maintenance. Let’s dive right in!

Wattage and Temperature Settings
- Start in the Suggested Range: When you first install a new coil, always begin within the recommended wattage or temperature range provided by the manufacturer. This ensures you’re not overloading the coil right from the start.
- Experiment and Find Your Sweet Spot: After starting within the suggested range, don’t be afraid to experiment. Adjust the wattage or temperature up or down in small increments to find the setting that delivers the best flavor for you.
- Watch for Dry Hits: If you start getting dry hits or burnt taste, it’s a sign that your wattage or temperature might be too high for the coil. Reduce it until the flavor is back to being enjoyable.
- Don’t Rush It: When installing a new coil, always take your time to prime it properly. Drip a few drops of e-liquid directly onto the coil’s exposed cotton and wait a few minutes to allow the liquid to saturate the wicking material.
- Visual Check: If your coil has visible wicking holes, make sure the cotton inside is soaked. It should look wet, not bone dry. This simple visual check can save you from an unpleasant first puff.
- Check for Gunk: Keep an eye on your coils for any buildup of gunk or residue. If you notice a significant decrease in flavor or vapor production, it might be time for some coil maintenance.
- Gently Dry Burn: If your coil isn’t too far gone, you can gently dry burn it to remove some of the gunk. Just fire your device without inhaling a few times until the coil glows, then let it cool.
- Clean and Rewick: For rebuildable coils, consider cleaning and rewick them if you notice a drop in performance. Remove the old cotton, dry burn the coil to remove gunk, let it cool, and then insert fresh cotton.
So there you have it – some handy tips for making the most of your coils. Experiment with your wattage and temperature settings, prime your coils patiently, and keep an eye on their maintenance.
I’ve personally put the Drag 3’s dynamic TPP-X coils to the test, and let me tell you, they’re truly outstanding. These coils deliver a quick, responsive vaping experience and handle high wattages with ease.
