The Voopoo Drag 3 is the most recent addition to the ever popular Drag family of vape mods. It all started with the initial Drag which quickly gained a credibility as a solid and trusted double battery mod. Ever since, 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. No matter how you want to vape, there’s a “Drag” mod for you.
The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s first go back to a dual battery 510 mod given that the Argus GT of last year. It takes two 18650 batteries and uses the Gene.Fan 2.0 chipset to fire at up to 177W. The set includes the TPP Tank and a 510 adapter that permits it to be utilized 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.

The Drag 3 has been given a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked very comparable to one another however the Drag 3 looks nothing like them. Gone are the resin panels, large printed ‘DRAG’ logo design, and rounded frame. Rather, the Drag 3 is covered in high-quality leather and includes a more boxy and straight 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 style though; the Drag 3 is almost identical to the Drag Max that Voopoo released late in 2015. There are a couple of small changes however it’s essentially the very same mod.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays surround the leather and wrap and offer the Drag 3 a high-end, exceptional feel and look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color alternative that you select. On the back side of the mod, just below the 510 port, is a little metal “DRAG” nameplate.
It’s still too early to say for sure but compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it looks 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 few months of use.
The Drag 3 is typical sized but really rather light-weight for a dual battery mod. This makes it perfect for trips out of the house (not that I have actually had the ability to do that in the midst of this pandemic) and it’s not too big or heavy to put in your pocket. One of the few grievances I have is that if you grip it too firmly the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold.
The 510 adapter plate is located off-center towards the back side of the mod. On the intense side, this need to keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a big full-color display screen that corresponds the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, brilliant, and crisp. This screen shows individual battery life indicators, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
One intriguing thing I saw 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 functional purpose and makes the change buttons look unusual.
The battery door on the Drag 3 slides out and after that opens. It’s spring-loaded and works well, however it feels delicate and floppy. There’s a lot of side-to-side wiggle when the battery door is open and that concerns me. I seem like there’s a great chance that this door will break in the long-lasting but this is just speculation based upon how the door feels. Who understands? I hope that I’m wrong here however that’s my observation.
Features & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Features
The Drag 3 uses 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 (standard Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode likewise automatically sets the mod to the perfect wattage for your coil when you place the pod. This is terrific for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they ought to set the wattage and also prevents the mod from inadvertently being set too high.
RBA mode works like your standard wattage mode and is for usage with other non-voopoo sub ohm tanks and RBAs. In RBA mode you can set the wattage as high as you like without any restrictions. To switch modes press the fire button three times.
Out of the box, the Drag 3 just comes with Smart mode and RBA mode allowed. If you wish to utilize TC then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware update from their support page.
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 hit ‘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 turn off as the firmware upgrade is set up. Once it’s complete you can unplug 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 to change from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both change buttons to go into the TC configuration menu where you can change the TCR value, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can choose from two UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look extremely similar but the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more modern and futuristic. I don’t have a genuine preference as I believe they both look cool however I found myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ picture UI most of the time.

The TPP (Tank Pod Push) Tank is Voopoo’s new tank and it’s an extremely flexible one. It’s a pod-style tank that works with the Argus, Argus Pro, Argus X, Drag Max, Drag X & Drag S. It also comes with a 510 adapter that enables it to be used on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 adapter. Additionally, this 510 adapter is also suitable with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can utilize them on the Drag 3. The Drag 3 and TPP Tank include 2 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. It looks like the PnP tanks, only it’s larger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip tip. The 510 adapters that it beings in feature 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 adapters 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 tip is a wide bore and removable. The tank will hold up to 5.5 ml of juice 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 press into the bottom of the tank.
Depending on the coil that you use you can go from a direct lung draw with the airflow open, down to a limited lung hit with the airflow almost closed up. With the large bore of the drip idea and the large 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 come with 2 brand-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 area inside the coil and likewise 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 an excellent quantity of flavor but it seems like it can be much better. Increasing the wattage to 70W makes the vapor a little warmer, more to my taste, and the flavor gets better too. Vaping at 75-80W the vapor is hot and the flavor is not that much better than it is at 70W. Since you get the finest taste from the vapor and the coil is good and warm, my preferred 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 utilizing the 0.15-ohm coil. If you like a warm vape then this coil is the one to utilize.
Good performers, these coils dripped some juice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or juice pouring out of the airflow holes but juice gathered in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never ever a considerable quantity of juice but enough to be obvious and to require discussing.
The Drag 3 has actually been a good, dependable mod to use. In Smart mode, it properly detects the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a couple of instances where it checked out the resistance wrong but this was infrequent and quickly remedied by lifting the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. It fires instantly and provides constant power. Temperature level Control mode is likewise pretty good. TCR for stainless-steel just decreases to 1000 so this is the value I used for SS316L. While it can be irregular at times, it’s very functional and never ever when offered me a dry hit. It’s not the very best TC out there by any means but I do not mind using it at all.
Voopoo completely redesigned the Drag 3 and I love what they have actually finished with it. It’s a fantastic-looking mod that feels high-end too. Paired with the TPP tank & 510 adapters it’s a truly fantastic kit that affords a lot of possibilities for how you want to utilize it. You can use PnP tanks with the 510 adapters on the Drag 3, utilize the TPP tank, or you can use any tank that utilizes a 510 connection.
On its own, the Drag 3 is still an actually strong mod. The wattage mode efficiency is ideal and it even has a really functional TC mode with TCR. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 much more. This is absolutely a mod and package worth picking up.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the latest addition to the ever-popular Drag household of vape mods. Considering that 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 initial Drag and Drag 2 looked extremely 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 suggestion and 510 adapters 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.
