The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag family of vape mods. It all started with the initial Drag which quickly gained a credibility as a dependable and solid dual battery mod. Ever since, 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 dual battery 510 mod because the Argus GT of last year. This TPP Tank is also compatible with previous Voopoo pod mods like the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. Similarly, the 510 adapter permits the Drag 3 to be utilized with all PnP tanks.
This gadget was sent to me by Voopoo for the purpose of this review.

The Drag 3 has actually been offered a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked extremely comparable to one another however the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. Gone are the resin panels, large printed ‘DRAG’ logo, and rounded frame. Instead, the Drag 3 is wrapped in high-quality leather and features a more straight and boxy style. This leather is stamped with “DRAG 3” on one side and a small “VOOPOO” logo design on the other. This isn’t a new style though; the Drag 3 is almost identical to the Drag Max that Voopoo released late in 2015. There are a few small changes however it’s essentially 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, superior look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color choice that you pick. On the back side of the mod, just listed below the 510 adapter, 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 improved 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 typical sized however in fact quite lightweight for a dual battery mod. This makes it ideal for trips out of your home (not that I have actually 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 securely the straight edges make the mod a little uncomfortable to hold, one of the couple of grievances I have is that.
The 510 connector plate lies off-center towards the rear end of the mod. Atomizers up to 24mm will not overhang but a 25mm tank overhangs simply the slightest bit; it’s hardly noticeable. The 510 connector plate is raised simply the tiniest bit and tanks do not sit entirely flush. If you’re like me then it’s going to bug you, this is not really noticeable but. On the bright side, this need to keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a large full-color screen that corresponds the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, brilliant, and crisp. This screen displays private battery life signs, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
One fascinating thing I noticed is that there’s an indent on the left side of the adjustment 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. It’s spring-loaded and works well, however it feels floppy and delicate. 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 just speculation based on 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 allows the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (basic Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode is suggested for use with the included TPP tank or voopoo drag X‘s PnP tanks, and TPP or PnP coils. In Smart mode the wattage is restricted to the max wattage ranking of the coil to prevent you from burning it. Smart mode also instantly sets the mod to the perfect wattage for your coil when you place the pod. This is terrific for brand-new vapers who aren’t sure how high they need to set the wattage and also prevents the mod from inadvertently being set expensive.
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 enabled. If you wish to use TC then you’ll need to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware upgrade from their support page.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer system and run the Voopoo configuration program. 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.
There are 3 TC modes: NI, TI, and SS. When you’re in TC mode you can scroll all the way to change from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both change buttons to get in the TC configuration menu where you can alter the TCR value, change the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can select from two UI’s: Iron (portrait orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look extremely similar but the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more state-of-the-art and futuristic. I do not have a genuine choice as I think they both look neat however I found myself using the ‘Iron’ portrait UI most of the time.
Drag 3 Button Combinations
Power On or Off: Press the fire button 5 times.
Switch Modes: Press the fire button 3 times.
Change UI: Hold both change buttons to bring up the UI menu. Then utilize the adjustment buttons to pick the UI you want. Hold the fire button to validate.

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 port.
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 utilize 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 pointer and the plus 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 feature two 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 likewise heat up much 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 favored wattage for this coil is 70W due to the fact that you get the best flavor from the coil and the vapor is good and warm.
The 0.20 ohm coil is expected to be used 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 entertainers, these coils dripped some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the airflow holes however ejuice gathered in the base of the air flow control ring. It was never ever a considerable quantity of ejuice but enough to be visible and to call for pointing out.
The Drag 3 has been a great, trusted mod to utilize. In Smart mode it properly finds the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a few circumstances where it checked out the resistance wrong but this was irregular and quickly corrected by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. It fires instantly and delivers consistent power. Temperature level Control mode is likewise respectable. TCR for stainless steel only goes down to 1000 so this is the worth I utilized for SS316L. While it can be irregular at times, it’s extremely usable and never when gave me a dry hit. It’s not the very best TC out there by any means but I don’t mind using it at all.
Voopoo totally upgraded the Drag 3 and I like what they’ve done with it. You can use PnP tanks with the 510 adapter on the Drag 3, use the TPP tank, or you can use any tank that utilizes a 510 connection.
On its own the Drag 3 is still a really solid mod. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag household 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 initial Drag and Drag 2 looked really similar to one another but the Drag 3 looks absolutely 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.
