The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag family of vape mods. Because 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.
The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s very first return to a double battery 510 mod because 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 package features the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that allows it to be used 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 utilized with all PnP tanks.

The Drag 3 has been given a total redesign compared to its predecessors. The original Drag and Drag 2 looked extremely similar to one another however the Drag 3 looks absolutely nothing like them. Instead, the Drag 3 is covered in top quality leather and features a more straight and boxy style.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays wrap and surround the leather and give the Drag 3 a high-end, superior look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color option that you choose. On the back side of the mod, just listed below the 510 port, 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 actually enhanced the paint quality. My paint is still completely intact, 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 average sized however in fact rather lightweight 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. If you grip it too securely the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold, one of the few complaints I have is that.
The 510 adapter plate is situated off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the brilliant side, this must 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, intense, and crisp. This screen displays individual battery life signs, 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 excellent and work nicely. 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 despite the fact that they’re not. I’m uncertain why Voopoo did this as it serves no practical purpose 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 good opportunity 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 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 likewise instantly sets the mod to the ideal wattage for your coil when you insert the pod. This is terrific 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 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 constraints. To switch modes push the fire button three times.
Out of the box the Drag 3 only comes with Smart mode and RBA mode enabled. Then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware upgrade from their support page, if you want to utilize 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 after that struck ‘Pick’ on the upper right hand side of the screen. Select the Drag 3 firmware that you downloaded and after that struck ‘Download( U)’. Your Drag 3 will shut off as the firmware update is installed. 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 alter from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both modification buttons to get in the TC setup menu where you can change the TCR worth, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can pick from two UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look very comparable however 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 found myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ portrait UI the majority of the time.

It’s a pod-style tank that is compatible with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. It likewise 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 sits in features a band of knurling and two bands of etched lines that run along the airflow control ring. 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.
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 and so is the rubber bung that plugs it. Coils push 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 tip and the plus 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 include 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 larger surface area inside the coil and also heat up much faster. The 0.15 ohm coil is supposed to be utilized from 60-80W and Voopoo states that it’s best from 65-75W. At 65W I get warm vapor and a great amount of flavor however it feels 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 better than it is at 70W. Since you get the finest taste from the vapor and the coil is good and warm, my favored wattage for this coil is 70W.
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 recommend using 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 however ejuice collected in the base of the air flow control ring. It was never a substantial quantity of ejuice but enough to be obvious and to require mentioning.
The Drag 3 has been a good, trusted mod to utilize. In Smart mode it precisely discovers the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a couple of circumstances where it read the resistance incorrect but this was irregular and quickly 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 worth I utilized for SS316L. It’s not the best TC out there by any methods but I don’t mind utilizing it at all.
Voopoo entirely redesigned the Drag 3 and I love what they’ve done with it. You can use PnP tanks with the 510 adapter on the Drag 3, utilize the TPP tank, or you can utilize any tank that utilizes a 510 connection.
On its own the Drag 3 is still an actually strong mod. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the voopoo vape 3 even more.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the latest addition to the ever popular Drag family of vape mods.
