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 gained a credibility as a trustworthy and strong dual battery mod. Since then, Voopoo has 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 considering that the Argus GT of last year. It takes two 18650 batteries and uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset to fire at approximately 177W. The kit features the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that allows it to be utilized on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 connection. This TPP Tank is also compatible with previous Voopoo pod mods like the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. Also, the 510 adapter enables the Drag 3 to be utilized with all PnP tanks.
This gadget was sent out to me by Voopoo for the function of this evaluation.

The Drag 3 has been given a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked very similar to one another however the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. Rather, the Drag 3 is wrapped in top quality leather and includes a more boxy and straight design.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays cover and surround the leather and give the Drag 3 a high-end, exceptional look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color choice that you pick. On the rear end of the mod, just listed below the 510 adapter, is a small metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still too early to state for sure however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it appears like Voopoo have enhanced the paint quality. My paint is still perfectly undamaged, even on the bottom of the mod, however I’ll need to see how it holds up after a few months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized however in fact quite light-weight for a dual battery mod. This makes it perfect for trips out of the house (not that I have actually been able to do that in the midst of this pandemic) and it’s not too huge or heavy to put in your pocket. If you grip it too securely the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold, one of the few grievances I have is that.
The 510 adapter plate is situated off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the intense side, this need to keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a large full-color display that is identical to the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, bright, and crisp. This screen shows private battery life indicators, 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 great and work well. One fascinating thing I noticed is that there’s an indent on the left side of the adjustment buttons. This makes the buttons appear like their off center even though they’re not. I’m uncertain why Voopoo did this as it serves no practical function and makes the adjustment buttons look unusual.
The battery door on the Drag 3 moves 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 a great chance that this door will break in the long-lasting however this is just speculation based on how the door feels.
Features & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Functions
The Drag 3 uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset which was first used in the Drag Max. This chip permits the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (standard Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode is indicated for usage with the consisted of TPP tank or Voopoo’s PnP tanks, and TPP or PnP coils. In Smart mode the wattage is limited to the max wattage rating of the coil to prevent you from burning it. When you place the pod, Smart mode also instantly sets the mod to the perfect wattage for your coil. This is terrific for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they must set the wattage and also prevents the mod from accidentally 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 press the fire button three times.
Out of package the Drag 3 just features Smart mode and RBA mode enabled. Then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware update from their support page, if you desire to utilize TC.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer system and run the Voopoo setup program. Select the Drag 3 firmware that you downloaded and then hit ‘Download( U)’. Your Drag 3 will turn off as the firmware upgrade is installed.
There are 3 TC modes: NI, TI, and SS. When you remain in TC mode you can scroll all the way down to alter from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both adjustment buttons to enter the TC configuration menu where you can alter the TCR value, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can pick from two UI’s: Iron (portrait orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look really similar but the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more futuristic and high-tech. I don’t have a genuine preference as I think they both look cool but I discovered myself using the ‘Iron’ picture UI the majority of the time.
Drag 3 Button Combinations

Change Modes: Press the fire button 3 times.

The TPP (Tank Pod Push) Tank is Voopoo’s new tank and it’s an exceptionally 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 also includes a 510 adapter that enables it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 port. In addition, this 510 adapter is likewise compatible with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can use them on the Drag 3 too. The Drag 3 and TPP Tank include 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 look of the Drag 3. It appears like the PnP tanks, only it’s larger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip tip. The 510 adapter that it beings in functions a band of knurling and two bands of etched lines that run along the air flow control ring. The metal plate around the drip tip 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 drip suggestion is large bore and detachable. The tank will hold up to 5.5 ml of ejuice and is bottom filled through a port on the bottom of the tank. The port is deep therefore is the rubber bung that plugs it. Coils push into the bottom of the tank.
Depending upon the coil that you utilize you can go from a direct lung draw with the air flow open, down to a restricted lung hit with the airflow almost closed up. With the wide bore of the drip idea and the large size of this pod tank, the TPP Tank will work best with DL coils for DL vaping. , if you want a MTL vape you’re much 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 states that these coils have a larger surface area inside the coil and also warm up much faster. The 0.15 ohm coil is supposed to be utilized from 60-80W and Voopoo says that it’s best from 65-75W. At 65W I get warm vapor and a great quantity of taste however it seems like it can be better. Increasing the wattage to 70W makes the vapor a little warmer, more to my taste, and the taste gets better too. Vaping at 75-80W the vapor is hot and the taste is not that far better than it is at 70W. Due to the fact that you get the finest flavor from the coil and the vapor is good and warm, my preferred wattage for this coil is 70W.
The 0.20 ohm coil is expected to be utilized from 40-60W and best from 50-55W. If you like a hotter vape I would suggest utilizing the 0.15 ohm coil. If you like a warm vape then this coil is the one to use.
Great entertainers, these coils leaked some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the air flow holes but ejuice collected in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never ever a considerable quantity of ejuice however enough to be visible and to warrant discussing.
The Drag 3 has been a great, reliable mod to utilize. In Smart mode it precisely discovers the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a few instances where it checked out the resistance wrong however this was infrequent and quickly remedied by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. It fires quickly and provides constant power. Temperature level Control mode is also pretty good. TCR for stainless steel just decreases to 1000 so this is the worth I used for SS316L. While it can be inconsistent at times, it’s really usable and never once offered me a dry hit. It’s not the best TC out there by any means however I do not mind using it at all.
Voopoo completely revamped the Drag 3 and I enjoy what they’ve 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 utilizes a 510 connection.
On its own the Drag 3 is still a really solid mod. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the most recent addition to the ever popular Drag family of vape mods. Since 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 extremely comparable to one another but the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. It’s a pod-style tank that is compatible with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. The metal plate around the drip idea 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.
