The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s very first go back to a double battery 510 mod given that the Argus GT of in 2015. It takes two 18650 batteries and uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset to fire at as much as 177W. The set includes 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.

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. Rather, the Drag 3 is covered in premium leather and includes a more straight and boxy design.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays surround the leather and wrap and provide 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 rear end of the mod, simply listed below the 510 adapter, is a little metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still prematurely to say for sure however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it seems like Voopoo have enhanced the paint quality. My paint is still perfectly 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 average sized however really rather light-weight for a double 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 huge or heavy to put in your pocket. One of the few complaints I have is that if you grip it too firmly the straight edges make the mod a little uneasy to hold.
The 510 port plate is situated off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the bright side, this need to keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a large full-color display that corresponds the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, brilliant, and crisp. This screen shows private 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 well. One intriguing thing I discovered is that there’s an indent on the left side of the change buttons. This makes the buttons look like their off center although they’re not. I’m unsure why Voopoo did this as it serves no practical function and makes the adjustment buttons look weird.
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 possibility that this door will break in the long-term but this is simply speculation based on how the door feels.
Features & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Features
The Drag 3 utilizes the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset which was first utilized in the Drag Max. This chip allows the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (standard Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode is suggested for use with the consisted of TPP tank or Voopoo’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 likewise instantly 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 must set the wattage and also avoids the mod from mistakenly being set expensive.
RBA mode works like your basic 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 limitations. To change modes press the fire button three times.
Out of package the Drag 3 only includes Smart mode and RBA mode made it possible for. Then you’ll have to download the voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware update from their assistance page, if you desire to utilize TC.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer 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 upgrade is set up.
There are 3 TC modes: NI, TI, and SS. When you remain in TC mode you can scroll all the way to alter from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both adjustment buttons to go into the TC configuration menu where you can alter the TCR worth, change the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can pick from two UI’s: Iron (portrait orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look really similar however the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more modern and futuristic. I do not have a genuine choice as I believe they both look cool however I discovered myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ picture UI the majority of the time.
Drag 3 Button Combinations

Change Modes: Press the fire button 3 times.
Change UI: Hold both modification buttons to raise the UI menu. Use the adjustment buttons to choose the UI you want. Hold the fire button to validate.

It’s a pod-style tank that is suitable with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. It likewise comes with a 510 adapter that enables it to be utilized on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 connector.
The TPP Tank matches and compliments the appearance of the Drag 3. 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 push into the bottom of the tank.
Depending on the coil that you utilize you can go from a direct lung draw with the airflow open, to a restricted lung hit with the air flow almost closed up. With the broad bore of the drip suggestion 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 2 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 larger surface area inside the coil and also heat up quicker. The 0.15 ohm coil is expected to be used from 60-80W and Voopoo says that it’s best from 65-75W. At 65W I get warm vapor and an excellent 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 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. Since you get the finest taste from the coil and the vapor is nice and warm, my favored wattage for this coil is 70W.
The 0.20 ohm coil is supposed to be utilized 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.
Great entertainers, these coils dripped some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the air flow holes but ejuice gathered in the base of the air flow control ring. It was never ever a considerable quantity of ejuice however enough to be visible and to necessitate discussing.
The Drag 3 has actually been an excellent, dependable mod to utilize. In Smart mode it properly spots the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a few circumstances 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. TCR for stainless steel just goes down to 1000 so this is the value I utilized for SS316L. It’s not the finest TC out there by any means however I do not mind utilizing it at all.
Voopoo entirely redesigned the Drag 3 and I enjoy 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 uses a 510 connection.
On its own the Drag 3 is still a truly strong mod. The wattage mode efficiency is best and it even has a really usable TC mode with TCR. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 much more. This is definitely a mod and package worth picking up.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Considering that then, Voopoo has 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 very comparable to one another but the Drag 3 looks 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. 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.
