The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s very first go back to a dual battery 510 mod because the Argus GT of last year. It takes 2 18650 batteries and uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset to fire at up to 177W. The package includes the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that permits it to be utilized 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. Also, the 510 adapter enables the Drag 3 to be used with all PnP tanks.

The Drag 3 has actually been offered a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked really similar to one another but the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. Gone are the resin panels, large printed ‘DRAG’ logo design, and rounded frame. Instead, the Drag 3 is covered in premium leather and features a more straight and boxy design. This leather is stamped with “DRAG 3” on one side and a little “VOOPOO” logo design on the other. This isn’t a new design though; the Drag 3 is practically identical to the Drag Max that Voopoo released late last year. There are a few small changes however it’s virtually the very same mod.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays surround the leather and cover 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 select. On the back side of the mod, simply listed below the 510 port, is a little metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still too early to state for sure but compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it looks like Voopoo have actually enhanced the paint quality. My paint is still completely undamaged, even on the bottom of the mod, however I’ll need to see how it holds up after a couple of months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized but in fact rather lightweight for a dual battery mod. This makes it ideal for trips out of your home (not that I’ve had the ability to do that in the midst of this pandemic) and it’s not too big or heavy to put in your pocket. One of the few grievances I have is that if you grip it too firmly the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold.
The 510 port plate lies off-center towards the back side of the mod. Atomizers up to 24mm won’t overhang however a 25mm tank overhangs simply the smallest bit; it’s barely visible. The 510 adapter plate is raised simply the tiniest bit and tanks don’t sit totally flush. This is not extremely noticeable however if you resemble me then it’s going to bug you. 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, brilliant, and crisp. This screen displays private battery life indications, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
The power and change buttons are round with a glossy silver accent ring. They all feel excellent and work nicely. One fascinating thing I noticed is that there’s an indent on the left side of the change buttons. This makes the buttons appear like their off center despite the fact that they’re not. I’m unsure why Voopoo did this as it serves no functional purpose and makes the modification buttons look strange.
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 a good possibility that this door will break in the long-term but this is just speculation based on how the door feels.
Functions & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Functions
The Drag 3 uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset which was first used 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 insert the pod. This is fantastic for brand-new vapers who aren’t sure how high they ought to set the wattage and also avoids the mod from inadvertently being set too high.
RBA mode works like your basic wattage mode and is for use with other non-Voopoo sub ohm tanks and RBAs. In RBA mode you can set the wattage as high as you like with no limitations. To switch modes push the fire button 3 times.
Out of the box, the Drag 3 only includes Smart mode and RBA mode enabled. Then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software application program and Drag 3 firmware update from their assistance page if you desire to use TC.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer system and run the Voopoo setup program. Select ‘Upgrade’ from the panel on the upper left-hand side and after that hit ‘Select’ on the upper right-hand man side of the screen. 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. Once it’s total you can unplug your Drag 3. You now have TC mode!
There are 3 TC modes: NI, TI, and SS. When you’re in TC mode you can scroll all the way down to change from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both change buttons to enter the TC configuration menu where you can alter the TCR worth, change the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can choose from 2 UI’s: Iron (portrait orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look very similar however the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more futuristic and modern. I do not have a genuine choice as I think they both look cool however I found myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ picture UI most of the time.

The TPP (Tank Pod Push) Tank is Voopoo’s 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 also features a 510 adapter that enables it to be utilized on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 adapter. Furthermore, this 510 adapter is also compatible with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can use them on the Drag 3. The Drag 3 and TPP Tank include two 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. The metal plate around the drip pointer and 510 adapters 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 tip is a broad bore and removable. The tank will hold up to 5.5 ml of juice 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 use you can go from a direct lung draw with the airflow open, down to a limited lung hit with the airflow almost closed up. With the large bore of the drip suggestion and the plus size of this pod tank, the TPP Tank will work best with DL coils for DL vaping. If you want an MTL vape you’re much better off with the MTL PnP tank.

The Drag 3 and TPP Tank come with 2 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 bigger surface location inside the coil and also heat up quicker. The 0.15-ohm coil is supposed to be utilized from 60-80W and Voopoo states that it’s best from 65-75W. My preferred wattage for this coil is 70W because you get the finest flavor from the coil and the vapor is warm and great.
The 0.20-ohm coil is supposed to be utilized from 40-60W and best from 50-55W. This coil has even better taste and provides a truly great vape at 55W. 40W is much too cool and the flavor is seriously lacking at this wattage. 50W is warmer however still on the cool side of things but the flavor is visibly better. 55W is the sweet spot for warm vapor and nice flavor. 60W is warmer however still not hot. , if you like a hotter vape I would recommend using the 0.15-ohm coil. However, if you like a warm vape then this coil is the one to utilize.
Excellent entertainers, these coils leaked some juice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or juice pouring out of the airflow holes but juice gathered in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never a substantial quantity of ejuice however enough to be visible and to warrant mentioning.
The Drag 3 has been a great, reliable mod to utilize. In Smart mode it properly discovers the resistance of the coil and sets the limits accordingly. I did have a couple of instances where it checked out the resistance incorrectly but this was irregular and easily corrected by raising 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 value I used for SS316L. It’s not the best TC out there by any methods but I don’t mind utilizing it at all.
Voopoo totally upgraded the Drag 3 and I like what they have actually done with it. You can utilize PnP tanks with the 510 adapters on the Drag 3, utilize the TPP tank, or you can utilize any tank that uses a 510 connection.
On its own, the Drag 3 is still a truly 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 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 really comparable to one another however 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.
