The Voopoo Drag 3 is the most recent addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Since 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 includes the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that permits it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 connection. This TPP Tank is likewise suitable with previous Voopoo pod mods like the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. Likewise, the 510 adapter allows the Drag 3 to be utilized with all PnP tanks.

The Drag 3 has actually been given a total redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked very similar 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 blocky design. This leather is marked with “DRAG 3” on one side and a little “VOOPOO” logo design on the other. This isn’t a brand-new design though; the Drag 3 is practically similar to the Drag Max that Voopoo released late in 2015. There are a couple of small changes however it’s practically the exact same mod.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays cover and surround the leather and provide the Drag 3 a high-end, premium look and feel. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending upon the color alternative that you choose. 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 say for sure however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it looks like Voopoo have improved the paint quality. My paint is still perfectly 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 but actually quite lightweight for a dual battery mod. This makes it perfect for trips out of your home (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 firmly the straight edges make the mod a little uneasy to hold, one of the couple of grievances I have is that.
The 510 adapter plate is located off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the brilliant side, this need to 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, brilliant, and crisp. This screen shows private battery life indicators, 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 functional purpose and makes the modification 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 great chance that this door will break in the long-term but this is just speculation based on how the door feels.
Features & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Functions
The Drag 3 uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset which was first used in the Drag Max. This chip permits the Drag 3 to fire from 5-177W and brings Smart mode, RBA (standard Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode is indicated for usage with the included TPP tank or Voopoo’s PnP tanks, and TPP or PnP coils. In Smart mode the wattage is limited to the max wattage ranking of the coil to prevent you from burning it. Smart mode likewise automatically sets the mod to the perfect 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 also prevents the mod from inadvertently being set too 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 with no limitations. To switch modes press the fire button three times.
Out of package the Drag 3 only features Smart mode and RBA mode allowed. Then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software application program and Drag 3 firmware update from their assistance page, if you want to utilize 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 struck ‘Select’ 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 complete you can disconnect 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 change from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both change buttons to get in the TC configuration menu where you can change the TCR worth, 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 comparable however 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 discovered myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ picture UI most of the time.

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 permits 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 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 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, down to a limited lung hit with the airflow nearly closed up. With the broad bore of the drip tip 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 says 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 says that it’s best from 65-75W. My preferred wattage for this coil is 70W due to the fact that you get the best flavor from the vapor and the coil is nice and warm.
The 0.20 ohm coil is supposed to be used from 40-60W and best from 50-55W. This coil has even better taste and offers a really good vape at 55W. 40W is much too cool and flavor is seriously lacking at this wattage. 50W is warmer but still on the cool side of things but the flavor is noticeably much better. 55W is the sweet spot for warm vapor and good flavor. 60W is warmer but still not hot. 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 use.
Although great entertainers, these coils leaked some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the air flow holes but ejuice collected in the base of the air flow control ring. It was never a considerable quantity of ejuice but enough to be noticeable and to necessitate mentioning.
The Drag 3 has actually been an excellent, trusted mod to utilize. In Smart mode it accurately spots the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a couple of instances where it checked out the resistance wrong however this was infrequent and easily fixed 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 worth I utilized for SS316L. It’s not the best TC out there by any methods but I do not mind using it at all.
Voopoo totally upgraded the Drag 3 and I like what they have actually finished with it. It’s an excellent looking mod that feels high-end. Paired with the TPP tank & 510 adapter it’s a truly excellent package that pays for a lots of possibilities for how you wish to use it. You can use PnP tanks with the 510 adapter on the Drag 3, use the TPP tank, or you can utilize any tank that utilizes a 510 connection.
By itself the Drag 3 is still an actually solid mod. The wattage mode efficiency is best and it even has a very usable TC mode with TCR. Then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more, if you liked previous Drag mods. This is absolutely a mod and kit worth picking up.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the most recent addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Given 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 however the Drag 3 looks absolutely 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 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.
