The Voopoo Drag 3 is the latest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. All of it started with the original Drag which rapidly got a credibility as a strong and trusted dual battery mod. Since then, Voopoo has actually launched 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 want to vape, there’s a “Drag” mod for you.
The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s very first return to a dual battery 510 mod since the Argus GT of last year. This TPP Tank is also suitable with previous Voopoo pod mods like the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. Similarly, the 510 adapter enables the Drag 3 to be used with all PnP tanks.
This device was sent out to me by Voopoo for the purpose of this review.

The Drag 3 has actually been provided a total redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked extremely comparable to one another but the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. Instead, the Drag 3 is wrapped in premium leather and features a more straight and blocky style.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays wrap and surround the leather and provide the Drag 3 a high-end, superior look and feel. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color alternative that you pick. On the rear end of the mod, just listed below the 510 port, is a little metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still prematurely to state for sure however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it looks like Voopoo have improved the paint quality. My paint is still perfectly undamaged, even on the bottom of the mod, but I’ll have to see how it holds up after a couple of months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized however in fact rather lightweight for a double battery mod. This makes it ideal 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 big or heavy to put in your pocket. If you grip it too tightly the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold, one of the couple of problems I have is that.
The 510 port plate is located off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the bright side, this ought to keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a large full-color screen that is identical to the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, intense, and crisp. This screen shows specific battery life indications, 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 nicely. One intriguing thing I discovered is that there’s an indent on the left side of the adjustment buttons. This makes the buttons look 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 modification buttons look unusual.
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 opportunity that this door will break in the long-term however this is just 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 enables the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (standard Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode also immediately sets the mod to the ideal wattage for your coil when you insert the pod. This is terrific for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they must set the wattage and likewise prevents the mod from unintentionally being set too high.
RBA mode works like your standard 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 constraints. 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 application program and Drag 3 firmware upgrade from their support page, if you want to use TC.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer and run the Voopoo setup program. Select the Drag 3 firmware that you downloaded and then struck ‘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’re in TC mode you can scroll all the way down 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 value, change the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can choose from two UI’s: Iron (portrait orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look really comparable however the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more state-of-the-art and futuristic. I don’t have a real choice as I believe they both look cool however I found myself using the ‘Iron’ portrait UI the majority of the time.
Drag 3 Button Combinations
Power On or Off: Press the fire button 5 times.
Change Modes: Press the fire button 3 times.
Modification UI: Hold both change buttons to raise the UI menu. Utilize the adjustment buttons to choose the UI you desire. Hold the fire button to confirm.

It’s a pod-style tank that is compatible with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. It also comes with a 510 adapter that permits it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 connector.
The TPP Tank matches and compliments the look of the Drag 3. It appears like the PnP tanks, just it’s larger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip suggestion. The 510 adapter that it sits in features a band of knurling and 2 bands of etched lines that run along the air flow control ring. 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.
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 utilize you can go from a direct lung draw with the airflow open, to a limited 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 better off with the MTL PnP tank.
The Drag 3 and TPP Tank feature 2 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 bigger surface area inside the coil and likewise heat up much faster. The 0.15 ohm coil is expected to be used from 60-80W and Voopoo says that it’s best from 65-75W. My favored wattage for this coil is 70W due to the fact that you get the finest taste from the vapor and the coil is nice and warm.
The 0.20 ohm coil is supposed to be used 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 utilize.
Although great entertainers, these coils leaked some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the airflow holes however ejuice gathered in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never a considerable quantity of ejuice but enough to be obvious and to require discussing.
The Drag 3 has actually been a good, trustworthy mod to utilize. In Smart mode it precisely discovers the resistance of the coil and sets the limits accordingly. I did have a few circumstances where it read the resistance incorrect however this was irregular and quickly remedied by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. It fires quickly and delivers consistent power. Temperature level Control mode is likewise respectable. TCR for stainless-steel just decreases to 1000 so this is the value I used for SS316L. While it can be inconsistent at times, it’s really functional and never ever as soon as provided me a dry hit. It’s not the best TC out there by any means but I don’t mind using it at all.
Voopoo totally revamped the Drag 3 and I like what they have actually done with it. You can utilize 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 strong mod. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the latest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Because 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 initial Drag and Drag 2 looked really similar to one another but the Drag 3 looks 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 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.
