The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag household of vape mods. All of it began with the initial Drag which quickly gained a reputation as a reputable 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 wish to vape, there’s a “Drag” mod for you.
The Drag 3 marks Voopoo’s very first return to a double battery 510 mod given that 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. Also, the 510 adapter allows the Drag 3 to be utilized with all PnP tanks.
This gadget was sent to me by Voopoo for the function of this evaluation.

Style & Build Quality
The Drag 3 has been offered a complete redesign compared to its predecessors. The initial Drag and Drag 2 looked very similar to one another but the Drag 3 looks absolutely nothing like them. Instead, the Drag 3 is wrapped in high-quality leather and includes a more straight and boxy style.
The zinc-alloy frame and brushed metal inlays cover and surround the leather and offer the Drag 3 a high-end, exceptional feel and look. This frame comes painted in silver or black, depending on the color choice that you pick. On the rear end of the mod, just listed below the 510 adapters, 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 has actually 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 typical-sized but really rather lightweight 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 big or heavy to put in your pocket. If you grip it too tightly the straight edges make the mod a little uneasy to hold, one of the couples of grievances I have is that.
The 510 connector plate is located off-center towards the backside of the mod. On the intense side, this must keep tanks from scratching up the top of the mod.
The screen is a large full-color display screen that corresponds to the one on the Drag Max. It’s high-resolution, intense, and crisp. This screen shows private battery life indicators, mode, wattage, a puff counter, voltage, coil resistance, and puff time.
The power and adjustment buttons are round with a glossy silver accent ring. They all feel great and work perfectly. One interesting thing I discovered is that there’s an indent on the left side of the modification buttons. This makes the buttons look like they’re off-center despite the fact that they’re not. I’m not sure why Voopoo did this as it serves no functional function and makes the change buttons look odd.
The battery door on the Drag 3 slides out and then opens up. It’s spring-loaded and works well, however it feels vulnerable and floppy. When the battery door is open and that issues me, there’s a lot of side-to-side wiggles. I seem like there’s a good chance that this door will break in the long-lasting but this is simply speculation based on how the door feels. Who understands? I hope that I’m wrong here but that’s my observation.
Features & FunctionsVoopoo Drag 3 Functions
Drag 3 uses the Gene. Fan 2.0 chipset which was first utilized 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.
The smart mode also immediately sets the mod to the perfect wattage for your coil when you insert the pod. This is excellent for new vapers who aren’t sure how high they should set the wattage and also avoids the mod from mistakenly being set too high.
RBA mode works like your basic 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 constraints. To change modes push the fire button three times.
Out of the box, the Drag 3 only comes with Smart mode and RBA mode made it possible. Then you’ll have to download the Voopoo software program and Drag 3 firmware upgrade from their support page if you desire to utilize TC.
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 upgrade is installed.
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 value, change the wattage, and set the coil resistance.
You can select from 2 UI’s: Iron (picture orientation) or Core (landscape orientation). They both look very comparable however the ‘Core’ UI looks a bit more futuristic and modern. I do not have a genuine preference as I believe they both look neat but I found myself using the ‘Iron’ picture UI the majority 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.
Modification UI: Hold both change buttons to raise the UI menu. Then utilize the change buttons to choose the UI you desire. Hold the fire button to confirm.
Lock/Unlock All Buttons (Including the Fire Button): Hold the fire button and top modification button together.

The TPP (Tank Pod Push) Tank is Voopoo’s brand-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 comes with a 510 adapter that allows it to be utilized on the Drag 3 and any other mod with a 510 port. In addition, 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 include two 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, just it’s bigger and has a metal plate that surrounds the drip pointer. The 510 adapter that it sits in functions a band of knurling and two bands of etched lines that run along the airflow control ring. The metal plate around the drip pointer 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 suggestion is a broad bore and detachable. 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 push into the bottom of the tank.
Depending upon 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 nearly closed up. With the broad 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 desire an MTL vape you’re much better off with the MTL PnP tank.

The Drag 3 and TPP Tank feature 2 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 area inside the coil and likewise warm up quicker. 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 amount of flavor but it seems 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 much better than it is at 70W. Since you get the finest taste from the vapor and the coil is warm and great, my preferred wattage for this coil is 70W.
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 using the 0.15-ohm coil. If you like a warm vape then this coil is the one to utilize.
Although 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 a substantial amount of juice but enough to be obvious and to necessitate discussion.
The Drag 3 has been a good, trustworthy mod to use. In Smart mode, it properly finds the resistance of the coil and sets the limits appropriately. I did have a few circumstances where it read the resistance incorrect 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 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 don’t mind using it at all.
Voopoo entirely redesigned the Drag 3 and I enjoy what they have actually done with it. It’s a great-looking mod that feels high-end as well. Paired with the TPP tank & 510 adapters it’s a really terrific set that manages a ton of possibilities for how you wish to utilize it. You can utilize PnP tanks with the 510 adapters 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 an actually solid mod. The wattage mode efficiency is perfect and it even has a really functional TC mode with TCR. Then you’ll like the Drag 3 even more if you liked previous Drag mods. This is certainly a mod and package worth getting.
The Voopoo Drag 3 is the newest addition to the ever popular Drag family 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 original Drag and Drag 2 looked extremely similar 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.
