The Voopoo Drag 3 is the latest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Everything began with the initial Drag which quickly got a track record as a strong and dependable dual battery mod. Ever since, Voopoo has actually released the Drag 2 and Drag Mini mods, the Drag Nano pod vape, and the Drag X, Drag S, and Drag Max pod mods. No matter how you wish to vape, there’s a “Drag” mod for you.
The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s first return to a dual battery 510 mod because the Argus GT of last year. It takes 2 18650 batteries and utilizes the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset to fire at as much as 177W. The package features the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that enables it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 connection. This TPP Tank is likewise compatible with previous Voopoo pod mods like the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. Similarly, the 510 adapter allows the Drag 3 to be utilized with all PnP tanks.

The Drag 3 has been provided a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The original Drag and Drag 2 looked very similar to one another but the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. Instead, the Drag 3 is covered in high-quality leather and includes a more straight and boxy design.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays surround the leather and cover and provide the Drag 3 a high-end, exceptional look and feel. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color alternative that you choose. On the rear end of the mod, simply below the 510 port, is a little metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still prematurely to say for sure but compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it seems like Voopoo have improved the paint quality. My paint is still completely intact, even on the bottom of the mod, but I’ll need to see how it holds up after a few months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized however actually quite light-weight for a double battery mod. This makes it ideal for trips out of your home (not that I have actually had the ability to do that in the midst of this pandemic) and it’s not too huge or heavy to put in your pocket. One of the few problems I have is that if you grip it too firmly the straight edges make the mod a little uneasy to hold.
The 510 adapter plate is situated off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the bright side, this should keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a big full-color screen that corresponds the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, brilliant, and crisp. This screen displays specific battery life signs, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
The power and modification buttons are round with a glossy silver accent ring. They all feel good and work perfectly. One intriguing thing I observed is that there’s an indent on the left side of the modification buttons. This makes the buttons look like their off center although they’re not. I’m uncertain why Voopoo did this as it serves no functional function and makes the change buttons look odd.
The battery door on the Drag 3 slides out and then opens up. There’s a lot of side-to-side wiggle when the battery door is open and that issues me. I feel like there’s an excellent chance that this door will break in the long-lasting but this is simply speculation based on how the door feels.
Functions & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Functions
The Drag 3 utilizes the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset which was first utilized in the Drag Max. This chip allows the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (standard Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode likewise instantly sets the mod to the ideal wattage for your coil when you place the pod. This is great for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they should set the wattage and also prevents the mod from mistakenly being set too high.
RBA mode works like your basic wattage mode and is for usage with other non-Voopoo subohm tanks and RBAs. In RBA mode you can set the wattage as high as you like without any restrictions. To switch modes push the fire button three times.
Out of package the Drag 3 just features Smart mode and RBA mode allowed. If you wish to utilize TC then you’ll need to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware upgrade from their assistance page.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer and run the Voopoo configuration program. Select the Drag 3 firmware that you downloaded and then hit ‘Download( U)’. Your Drag 3 will turn off as the firmware update is set up.
There are 3 TC modes: NI, TI, and SS. When you remain in TC mode you can scroll all the way to alter from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both modification buttons to enter the TC configuration menu where you can change the TCR worth, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can choose from two UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look really comparable however the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more futuristic and modern. I don’t have a real choice as I believe they both look neat but I discovered myself using the ‘Iron’ portrait UI the majority of the time.

The TPP (Tank Pod Push) Tank is Voopoo’s brand-new tank and it’s an extremely flexible one. It’s a pod-style tank that is compatible with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. It likewise includes a 510 adapter that permits it to be utilized on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 adapter. In addition, this 510 adapter is likewise suitable with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can use them on the Drag 3. The Drag 3 and TPP Tank come with two brand-new TPP coils: a DM1 0.15 ohm coil and a DM2 0.20 ohm coil.
The TPP Tank matches and compliments the appearance of the Drag 3. It appears like the PnP tanks, just it’s larger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip idea. The 510 adapter that it beings in functions a band of knurling and 2 bands of etched lines that run along the air flow control ring. The metal plate around the drip pointer and 510 adapter match the color of the Drag 3: if you get one with a silver frame it will be silver, if your Drag 3 has a black frame then it will be black.
The tank will hold up to 5.5 ml of ejuice and is bottom filled through a port on the bottom of the tank. Coils press into the bottom of the tank.
Depending on the coil that you use you can go from a direct lung draw with the airflow open, to a restricted lung hit with the air flow almost closed up. With the wide bore of the drip pointer and the plus size of this pod tank, the TPP Tank will work best with DL coils for DL vaping. If you desire a MTL vape you’re better off with the MTL PnP tank.

The Drag 3 and TPP Tank come with two brand-new TPP coils:
1 x DM1 0.15 ohm coil (60-80W).
1 x DM2 0.20 ohm coil (40-60W).
Voopoo says that these coils have a larger surface location inside the coil and also heat up quicker. The 0.15 ohm coil is expected to be used from 60-80W and Voopoo says that it’s best from 65-75W. My preferred wattage for this coil is 70W since you get the best flavor from the coil and the vapor is warm and great.
The 0.20 ohm coil is expected to be utilized from 40-60W and best from 50-55W. This coil has even better taste and gives a really nice vape at 55W. 40W is much too cool and taste is seriously doing not have at this wattage. 50W is warmer but still on the cool side of things however the flavor is noticeably better. 55W is the sweet spot for warm vapor and nice taste. 60W is warmer however still not hot. , if you like a hotter vape I would recommend utilizing the 0.15 ohm coil.. However if you like a warm vape then this coil is the one to use.
Great performers, these coils leaked some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the airflow holes but ejuice collected in the base of the air flow control ring. It was never ever a considerable quantity of ejuice however enough to be visible and to warrant discussing.
The voopoo drag 3 has actually been an excellent, trusted mod to utilize. In Smart mode it accurately detects the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a couple of circumstances where it checked out the resistance incorrect but this was infrequent and quickly remedied by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. TCR for stainless steel just goes down to 1000 so this is the worth I utilized for SS316L. It’s not the finest TC out there by any methods but I do not mind using it at all.
Voopoo totally upgraded the Drag 3 and I enjoy what they have actually done with it. You can use PnP tanks with the 510 adapter on the Drag 3, use the TPP tank, or you can use any tank that uses a 510 connection.
By itself the Drag 3 is still a really strong mod. The wattage mode performance is perfect and it even has a very usable TC mode with TCR. Then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more, if you liked previous Drag mods. This is definitely a mod and set worth picking up.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Given that then, Voopoo has actually released the Drag 2 and Drag Mini mods, the Drag Nano pod vape, and the Drag X, Drag S, and Drag Max pod mods. The original Drag and Drag 2 looked very comparable to one another but the Drag 3 looks absolutely nothing like them. It’s a pod-style tank that is suitable with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. The metal plate around the drip suggestion and 510 adapter match the color of the Drag 3: if you get one with a silver frame it will be silver, if your Drag 3 has a black frame then it will be black.
