The Voopoo Drag 3 is the most recent addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. All of it began with the initial Drag which rapidly got a credibility as a strong and reputable dual battery mod. 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. No matter how you want to vape, there’s a “Drag” mod for you.
The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s first return to a double battery 510 mod given that 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. Also, the 510 adapter permits the Drag 3 to be utilized with all PnP tanks.
This device was sent out to me by Voopoo for the purpose of this review.

The Drag 3 has been given a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked really comparable to one another however the Drag 3 looks absolutely nothing like them. Gone are the resin panels, large printed ‘DRAG’ logo, and rounded frame. Rather, the Drag 3 is covered in top quality leather and includes a more boxy 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 style though; the Drag 3 is nearly similar to the Drag Max that Voopoo released late in 2015. There are a couple of small changes however it’s practically the very same mod.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays cover and surround the leather and offer the Drag 3 a high-end, superior look and feel. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending upon the color alternative that you choose. On the rear end of the mod, simply listed below the 510 connector, 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 completely intact, even on the bottom of the mod, however I’ll have to see how it holds up after a few months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized however really rather light-weight for a dual battery mod. This makes it ideal for trips out of your 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 securely the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold, one of the couple of complaints I have is that.
The 510 port plate lies off-center towards the back side of the mod. Atomizers as much as 24mm won’t overhang but a 25mm tank overhangs just the slightest bit; it’s barely noticeable. The 510 port plate is raised simply the tiniest bit and tanks don’t sit entirely flush. This is not very visible but if you’re like me then it’s going to bug you. On the bright side, this should keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a big full-color display screen that is identical to the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, intense, and crisp. This screen displays private battery life indications, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
One fascinating thing I discovered is that there’s an indent on the left side of the modification buttons. I’m not sure why Voopoo did this as it serves no practical purpose and makes the modification 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 a great chance that this door will break in the long-lasting however 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 used 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 is indicated for use with the included TPP tank or Voopoo’s PnP tanks, and TPP or PnP coils. In Smart mode the wattage is restricted to the max wattage score of the coil to prevent you from burning it. When you insert the pod, Smart mode also automatically sets the mod to the ideal wattage for your coil. This is excellent for brand-new vapers who aren’t sure how high they should set the wattage and likewise avoids the mod from inadvertently being set too expensive.
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 restrictions. To switch modes push the fire button three times.
Out of the box the Drag 3 only features 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 assistance page, if you desire to use TC.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer and run the Voopoo setup program. Select ‘Upgrade’ from the panel on the upper left hand side and after that hit ‘Pick’ 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 shut off as the firmware upgrade is installed. Once it’s total you can disconnect your Drag 3. You now have TC mode!
There are 3 TC modes: NI, TI, and SS. When you remain in TC mode you can scroll all the way down to change from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both modification buttons to enter the TC setup menu where you can alter the TCR worth, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can choose from 2 UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look really similar but the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more futuristic and modern. I do not have a real choice as I believe they both look neat but I found myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ portrait UI the majority of the time.
Drag 3 Button Mixes

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 allows it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 adapter.
The TPP Tank matches and compliments the appearance of the Drag 3. It looks like the PnP tanks, just it’s bigger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip tip. The 510 adapter that it beings 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 drip idea is broad bore and removable. 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 and so 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 air flow nearly 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 desire a MTL vape you’re much better off with the MTL PnP tank.

The Drag 3 and TPP Tank include two 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 likewise heat up faster. The 0.15 ohm coil is supposed to be utilized from 60-80W and Voopoo says that it’s best from 65-75W. My preferred wattage for this coil is 70W due to the fact that you get the finest flavor from the coil and the vapor is great and warm.
The 0.20 ohm coil is expected to be used from 40-60W and best from 50-55W. This coil has even better flavor and gives an actually good vape at 55W. 40W is much too cool and taste is seriously lacking at this wattage. 50W is warmer however still on the cool side of things but the taste is significantly better. 55W is the sweet spot for warm vapor and great taste. 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.
Good 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 ever a significant quantity of ejuice but enough to be obvious and to necessitate pointing out.
The Drag 3 has actually been a good, trusted mod to utilize. In Smart mode it properly spots the resistance of the coil and sets the limits accordingly. I did have a few circumstances where it checked out the resistance incorrect however this was irregular and easily fixed by raising the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. TCR for stainless steel only goes down to 1000 so this is the worth I used for SS316L. It’s not the finest TC out there by any means but I do not mind using it at all.
Voopoo totally upgraded the Drag 3 and I like what they’ve finished with it. It’s a great looking mod that feels high-end also. Paired with the TPP tank & 510 adapter it’s a truly great kit that manages a ton of possibilities for how you want to use it. You can utilize PnP tanks with the 510 adapter on the Drag 3, use the TPP tank, or you can utilize any tank that uses a 510 connection.
By itself the Drag 3 is still an actually solid mod. The wattage mode performance is best and it even has an extremely usable TC mode with TCR. Then you’ll like the voopoo drag X 3 even more, if you liked previous Drag mods. This is definitely a mod and kit worth picking up.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the most recent addition to the ever popular Drag family 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 original Drag and Drag 2 looked really similar to one another however 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.
