Style & Build Quality
The Drag 3 has actually been given a total redesign compared to its predecessors. The original Drag and Drag 2 looked really similar to one another however the Drag 3 looks absolutely nothing like them. Gone are the resin panels, big printed ‘DRAG’ logo design, and rounded frame. Instead, the Drag 3 is covered in premium leather and includes a more blocky and straight design. This leather is marked with “DRAG 3” on one side and a small “VOOPOO” logo on the other. This isn’t a new design though; the Drag 3 is practically identical to the Drag Max that Voopoo launched late in 2015. There are a few small changes but it’s virtually the exact same mod.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays cover and surround the leather and offer the Drag 3 a high-end, premium look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending upon the color alternative that you select. On the back side of the mod, simply below the 510 port, is a small metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still too early to say for sure however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it seems like Voopoo have improved 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 few months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized however in fact quite light-weight for a double battery mod. This makes it ideal for trips out of the house (not that I’ve been able 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 unpleasant to hold.
The 510 adapter plate is located 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 big full-color screen that corresponds the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, intense, and crisp. This screen displays specific battery life indications, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
The power and adjustment buttons are round with a shiny silver accent ring. They all feel excellent and work perfectly. 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 function and makes the change buttons look weird.
The battery door on the Drag 3 moves out and then opens up. It’s spring-loaded and works well, but it feels floppy and delicate. There’s a great deal of side-to-side wiggle when the battery door is open which concerns me. I seem like there’s a good chance that this door will break in the long-term but this is just speculation based upon how the door feels. Who knows? I hope that I’m wrong here but that’s my observation.
Functions & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Features
The Drag 3 utilizes the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset which was first used in the Drag Max. This chip enables the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (basic Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode also instantly sets the mod to the perfect wattage for your coil when you insert the pod. This is terrific for brand-new vapers who aren’t sure how high they should set the wattage and likewise avoids the mod from mistakenly being set too high.
RBA mode works like your standard wattage mode and is for use with other non-Voopoo subohm tanks and RBAs. In RBA mode you can set the wattage as high as you like without any limitations. To change modes press the fire button three times.
Out of package the Drag 3 just comes with Smart mode and RBA mode made it possible for. Then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software application program and Drag 3 firmware update from their support page, if you desire to use TC.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer system and run the Voopoo configuration program. Select ‘Upgrade’ from the panel on the upper left hand side and then hit ‘Select’ on the upper right hand side of the screen. Select the Drag 3 firmware that you downloaded and then struck ‘Download( U)’. Your Drag 3 will switch off as the firmware upgrade is set up. Once it’s complete 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 adjustment buttons to enter the TC setup menu where you can change the TCR value, change the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can pick from 2 UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look very comparable but the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more high-tech and futuristic. I do not have a real choice as I believe they both look cool but I found 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 versatile 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 comes with a 510 adapter that permits it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 adapter. Furthermore, this 510 adapter is likewise compatible with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can utilize them on the Drag 3 also. 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 bigger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip idea. The 510 adapter that it sits in features a band of knurling and 2 bands of etched lines that run along the airflow 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 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 air flow open, down to a limited lung hit with the airflow almost closed up. With the broad bore of the drip pointer 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 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 bigger 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 states that it’s best from 65-75W. My favored wattage for this coil is 70W since you get the finest flavor from the coil and the vapor is nice and warm.
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.
Although 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 gathered in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never a significant quantity of ejuice however enough to be visible and to necessitate mentioning.
The Drag 3 has been a great, trustworthy mod to utilize. In Smart mode it precisely identifies the resistance of the coil and sets the limits accordingly. I did have a couple of circumstances where it checked out the resistance incorrect but this was irregular and easily corrected by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. It fires instantly and provides consistent 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 irregular at times, it’s extremely usable and never as soon as provided 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 upgraded the Drag 3 and I like what they have actually finished with it. It’s a fantastic looking mod that feels high-end also. Paired with the TPP tank & 510 adapter it’s a really excellent set that manages a ton of possibilities for how you want to utilize 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 uses a 510 connection.
On its own the Drag 3 is still an actually solid 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 family of vape mods. Since then, Voopoo has launched the Drag 2 and Drag Mini mods, the Drag Nano pod vape, and the Drag X, Drag S, and Drag Max pod mods.
