The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s first go back to a double battery 510 mod considering that the Argus GT of last year.

The kit comes with the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that enables it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 connection.

The Drag 3 has been provided a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The original Drag and Drag 2 looked really comparable to one another however the Drag 3 looks absolutely nothing like them. Rather, the Drag 3 is wrapped in top quality leather and features a more straight and boxy style.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays cover and surround the leather and offer the Drag 3 a high-end, exceptional look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color option that you pick. On the rear end of the mod, simply listed below the 510 connector, is a little metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still prematurely to say for sure however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it looks like Voopoo have improved the paint quality. My paint is still completely undamaged, even on the bottom of the mod, but I’ll need to see how it holds up after a couple of months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized but actually quite light-weight 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 huge 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 complaints I have is that.
The 510 connector plate is situated off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the bright side, this should 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, bright, and crisp. This screen displays individual battery life indications, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
One interesting thing I noticed 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 function and makes the change buttons look weird.
The battery door on the Drag 3 slides out and then opens up. It’s spring-loaded and works well, but it feels floppy and vulnerable. When the battery door is open and that concerns me, there’s a lot of side-to-side wiggle. I seem like there’s a likelihood that this door will break in the long-lasting however this is simply speculation based on how the door feels. Who knows? I hope that I’m wrong here however that’s my observation.
Functions & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Features
The Drag 3 uses 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 (basic Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode likewise immediately sets the mod to the ideal wattage for your coil when you place the pod. This is great for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they need to set the wattage and likewise avoids the mod from unintentionally 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 restrictions. To switch modes push the fire button 3 times.
Out of package the Drag 3 just comes with Smart mode and RBA mode made it possible for. If you wish to use TC then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software application and Drag 3 firmware update from their support page.
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 ‘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 upgrade is set up. 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 alter from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both modification buttons to go into the TC setup menu where you can change the TCR value, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can select from 2 UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look extremely comparable but the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more modern and futuristic. I do not have a genuine preference as I think they both look cool but I discovered 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 a very 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. In addition, this 510 adapter is likewise compatible with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can use them on the Drag 3. The Drag 3 and TPP Tank feature 2 brand-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 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 push into the bottom of the tank.
Depending upon the coil that you use you can go from a direct lung draw with the air flow open, to a restricted lung hit with the airflow nearly 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 better off with the MTL PnP tank.

The Drag 3 and TPP Tank include two 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 area inside the coil and also heat up faster. The 0.15 ohm coil is expected 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 but it feels like it can be better. Increasing the wattage to 70W makes the vapor a little warmer, more to my preference, and the taste improves too. Vaping at 75-80W the vapor is hot and the flavor is not that far better than it is at 70W. My favored wattage for this coil is 70W due to the fact that you get the very best flavor from the vapor and the coil is good 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 recommend utilizing the 0.15 ohm coil. 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 however ejuice collected in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never ever a considerable amount of ejuice but enough to be obvious and to warrant discussing.
The Drag 3 has been an excellent, dependable mod to use. In Smart mode it precisely identifies the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a couple of instances where it read the resistance wrong however this was infrequent and quickly remedied by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. It fires immediately and delivers consistent power. Temperature level Control mode is likewise respectable. TCR for stainless steel just goes down to 1000 so this is the worth I utilized for SS316L. While it can be irregular sometimes, it’s extremely usable and never ever once gave me a dry hit. It’s not the very best TC out there by any means however I don’t mind using it at all.
Voopoo completely revamped the Drag 3 and I enjoy what they’ve done with it. You can utilize PnP tanks with the 510 adapter 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 strong mod. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more.
