The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. It all started with the initial Drag which quickly gained a track record as a reliable and solid dual battery mod. Ever since, 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. 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 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 offered 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. Gone are the resin panels, big printed ‘DRAG’ logo design, and rounded frame. Rather, the Drag 3 is wrapped in premium leather and includes a more boxy and straight style. This leather is stamped with “DRAG 3” on one side and a little “VOOPOO” logo on the other. This isn’t a new design though; the Drag 3 is almost identical to the Drag Max that Voopoo released late last year. There are a couple of small changes but it’s essentially the exact same mod.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays surround the leather and cover and offer the Drag 3 a high-end, superior feel and look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending upon the color choice that you pick. 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 however compared to the Drag and Drag 2, it seems like voopoo drag have actually 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 couple of months of use.
The Drag 3 is average sized however really quite lightweight for a dual battery mod. This makes it ideal for trips out of your house (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 securely the straight edges make the mod a little unpleasant to hold, one of the few grievances I have is that.
The 510 adapter plate is situated 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 that is identical to the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, intense, and crisp. This screen displays individual battery life indications, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
The power and modification buttons are round with a shiny silver accent ring. They all feel good and work well. One intriguing thing I saw is that there’s an indent on the left side of the modification buttons. This makes the buttons appear like their off center despite the fact that they’re not. I’m unsure why Voopoo did this as it serves no functional purpose and makes the adjustment buttons look strange.
The battery door on the Drag 3 moves out and after that opens. It’s spring-loaded and works well, but it feels vulnerable and floppy. There’s a lot of side-to-side wiggle when the battery door is open and that concerns 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. Who understands? I hope that I’m wrong here however that’s my observation.
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 (basic Wattage) mode, and TC modes.
Smart mode is indicated for use with the consisted of 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. When you insert the pod, Smart mode likewise instantly sets the mod to the perfect wattage for your coil. This is great for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they must set the wattage and likewise prevents the mod from accidentally being set too high.
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 restrictions. To switch modes push the fire button 3 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 need to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware update from their assistance page.
After downloading both, plug your Drag 3 into your computer 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 struck ‘Download( U)’. Your Drag 3 will turn off as the firmware update is set up. 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 remain in TC mode you can scroll all the way to alter from F ° to C ° and vice versa. You can hold both modification buttons to get in the TC configuration menu where you can change the TCR worth, adjust the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can select from 2 UI’s: Iron (portrait orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look extremely comparable however the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more high-tech and futuristic. I don’t have a real preference as I believe they both look cool however I discovered myself utilizing the ‘Iron’ picture UI the majority of the time.

The TPP (Tank Pod Push) Tank is Voopoo’s new tank and it’s an exceptionally 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 likewise features a 510 adapter that allows it to be utilized on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 port. Furthermore, this 510 adapter is likewise suitable with Voopoo’s PnP tanks so you can utilize them on the Drag 3 too. The Drag 3 and TPP Tank come with 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 bigger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip idea. 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 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 on 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 air flow 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 two 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 location inside the coil and likewise heat up faster. The 0.15 ohm coil is expected to be used from 60-80W and Voopoo says that it’s best from 65-75W. My favored wattage for this coil is 70W since you get the finest taste from the vapor and the coil is warm and good.
The 0.20 ohm coil is expected to be used from 40-60W and best from 50-55W. This coil has even better flavor and gives a really nice vape at 55W. 40W is much too cool and taste is seriously lacking at this wattage. 50W is warmer however still on the cool side of things however the taste is visibly much better. 55W is the sweet area for warm vapor and good flavor. 60W is warmer however 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.
Good performers, these coils dripped some ejuice even with 80VG. I didn’t have any messes or ejuice pouring out of the airflow holes but ejuice collected in the base of the airflow control ring. It was never ever a significant amount of ejuice however enough to be noticeable and to require pointing out.
The Drag 3 has actually been a great, trusted mod to use. In Smart mode it accurately detects the resistance of the coil and sets the limits accordingly. I did have a couple of instances where it checked out the resistance wrong however this was infrequent and easily fixed by raising the pod out and putting it back in.
Wattage mode works as it should. TCR for stainless steel only goes down to 1000 so this is the value I used for SS316L. It’s not the finest TC out there by any means but I don’t mind using it at all.
Voopoo completely redesigned the Drag 3 and I love 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 utilize any tank that uses a 510 connection.
By itself the Drag 3 is still a truly solid mod. The wattage mode efficiency is perfect and it even has a really usable TC mode with TCR. If you liked previous Drag mods then you’ll like the Drag 3 a lot more. This is definitely a mod and set worth picking up.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the latest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. Since then, 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. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked really comparable to one another however 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 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.
