The VooPoo DRAG 3 arrived for evaluation about some time in the past and initially I used to be tremendous excited, however after reviewing the DRAG X Plus, I’m unsure what to anticipate.

My proudest second as a reviewer was being the primary to get you the video evaluation out for the Drag X and Drag S, and a yr on the Drag X continues to be my favorite Pod Mod.

From then on VooPoo has introduced out a sequence of mods, pod mods and kits that had been primarily based on the PnP Pod Tank.

To call just a few:

  • DRAG 2 Refresh Version
  • DRAG mini Refresh Version
  • DRAG Max
  • DRAG X Plus
  • Drag 3
  • V.go well with
  • Argus
  • Argus Professional
  • Argus X
  • Argus GT

All of the above use the PnP Pod Tank or the newer model which is the TPP Pod Tank, so it’s been a reasonably purchase yr for VooPoo.

VooPoo is a US vape firm that’s been round since 2010 but it surely didn’t actually enter the vaping trade till 2016 after they acquired Woody Vapes (A US e-cigarette model).

Are you as excited as me but? Lets check out the DRAG 3…

What To Count on From The VooPoo DRAG 3

The model and form of the DRAG 3 could be very typical of a DRAG mod, particularly of late.

The truth is the general form of the DRAG 3 is just about the identical as DRAG MAX with an 510 connection differing between the two.

VooPoo Drag 3 from other side

That being stated the DRAG Max was completely different to the opposite DRAG mods, but it surely was undoubtedly an advanced, smoother model of the enduring design.

The DRAG 3 has the latest GENE.FAN 2.0 Chip, which has additionally been used within the VooPoo DRAG X Plus and the DRAG Max.

It’s a twin 18650 Mod, with a max energy output of 177W and has the ‘High Burst Super Mode’.

It has a 510 connector, so you should utilize any tank but it surely does include the TPP Pod Tank.

The TPP pod tank is the TPP Pod and the 510 adapter, it’s necessary to know the adapter suits the PNP pods however the TPP pod doesn’t match the PNP coils.

Design and Construct High quality

As I beforehand acknowledged the DRAG 3 appears to be like similar to the DRAG MAX with the principle visible distinction being the connection sort.

The package is available in 5 completely different colors.

VooPoo Drag 3 colours

I used to be despatched the Prussian Blue.

The VooPoo DRAG X Plus Mod

The bottom form of the mod is rectangular with a rounded again, which I fairly like.

Though the unique DRAG mods had been very fashionable, I used to suppose they had been very ‘brick like’.

VooPoo Drag 3 front

Across the sides and again of the mod is a leather-based patch. In contrast to different gadgets of late this leather-based patch is extra like a suede leather-based.

‘DRAG 3’ is stamped fairly huge into on aspect of the leather-based whereas the opposite aspect has a reasonably small VooPoo brand Stamped in on the nook.

There’s additionally a dog-tag like “DRAG” plaque protruding down from the highest.

All in all it’s fairly nicely constructed and lightweight in weight, however let’s take a more in-depth have a look at its options…

VooPoo DRAG 3 Buttons

The fireplace button is a traditional DRAG model fireplace button, situated in the direction of the highest of the mod.

It’s utterly spherical and measures at 11mm in diameter, it’s raised by 2mm and indented within the center, which comforts your thumb/finger brilliantly.

VooPoo Drag 3 buttons

The ‘+’/’-‘ buttons are located under the screen towards the bottom of the mod. They are 5mm in diameter and are raised by about 1.5mm with the ‘+’ button situated above the ‘-‘ button.

All of the buttons are properly place, not of them rattle and they’re all good to press.

The Voopoo DRAG 3 Display screen

There are 2 completely different Person Interfaces (display screen layouts) you should utilize with the VooPoo DRAG 3.

The primary is the ‘Iron Theme’. That is principally the portrait theme we’re used to seeing with the battery indicator bars (one for every battery) within the high proper and with the ‘DRAG’ brand within the high left.

VooPoo Drag 3 icon theme screen

Then fairly huge beneath that’s the Wattage and the mode (S/R).

Beneath that’s the puff counter, resistance, puff timer and a visible puff timer.

VooPoo Drag 3 core theme

The opposite structure is the panorama ‘Core Theme’, this theme appears to be like extra futuristic, with the wattage within the heart and the opposite data coming off of it.

The puff counter, lock icon and resistance are on the left. Then on the appropriate is the time mode and voltage.

All in all of the display screen is nice, it’s simple to see and use.

Voopoo DRAG 3 Battery Door & Port

The battery door on the DRAG 3 is a sliding backside door which has develop into fairly frequent, particularly on VooPoo Mods during the last yr.

Though I like this model of battery door as a result of it’s simple to make use of and isn’t a significant model implication, I do have sturdiness issues with it.

VooPoo Drag 3 battery section

On single battery mods it isn’t normally that a lot of an issue since you solely have 1 spring loaded battery connection urgent towards it. Nonetheless on a Twin battery mod, you now double that resistance.

This turns into an issue if the battery door bends too simple, though that shouldn’t be an issue right here as a result of the battery door is longer than it’s extensive, so it’s unlikely that it’ll bend and trigger a unfastened connection.

Nonetheless the opposite drawback is the little latches that the door makes use of to carry closed.

The fact is even probably the most sturdy latches put on out, that means the battery door doesn’t maintain as sturdy because it used to, finally rendering the gadget unusable.

VooPoo Drag 3 battery door latches

The latches aren’t a cosy match from the get go.

With each batteries in, the battery door has a 1mm hole. You possibly can argue that it’s a foul factor, however I believe it’s in all probability an excellent factor, for the battery door to be shut with no hole in any respect, that may imply the latches must rub extra and there for put on out sooner.

All I can say is, after the 2-3 weeks that I’ve been utilizing the DRAG 3 it’s no completely different from once I began, it’s nonetheless sturdy and never exhibiting any weak point.

VooPoo Drag 3 battery door hinge

Additionally the battery door hinge is quiet small and whereas battery door is open it has a number of ‘wobble’ which doesn’t give off an enormous since of sturdiness.

VooPoo Drag 3 510 connection

The VooPoo DRAG 3 has the identical connection plate that the DRAG X Plus has.

It’s 20mm in diameter with 2 torx screws to carry it down. The mod can maintain a 24.5mm tank with out protruding over the aspect.

VooPoo Drag 3 top 510 connection

The Connection plate is 20mm (however the mod can comfortably match a 26mm tank). It’s held down by 2 screws, which I do know, just a few folks will questions it’s sturdiness for the long run.

Though it feels nicely positioned and sturdy, I do know lots of people can be sad in regards to the plate solely having 2 screws, because it makes it simple to be dislodged when dropped.

TPP Pod Tank (Adapter Part)

The adapter part of a Pod Tank is like the bottom of a tank, besides from the pod holds to it magnetically slightly than through screw threads.

VooPoo Drag 3 tpp pod tank adapter

it has an adjustable airflow ring, which is sufficiently open for a pleasant ethereal DTL draw, however when it’s absolutely shut off it nonetheless permits a bit an excessive amount of airflow to offer a real MTL expertise (which is OK as a result of it wasn’t designed for MTL.

TPP Pod Tank (Pod Part)

The core design of the TPP pod is similar because the PnP pod, nevertheless it’s a utterly completely different pod.

VooPoo Drag 3 tpp pod tank

My favorite factor in regards to the TPP pod, that the PnP doesn’t have, is the detachable mouth piece.

mouth piece

It’s not the one distinction although, the TPP has a steel high and the coils are lots greater.

TPP pod underneath

From the underside of the pod, it’s virtually equivalent to the PnP pod.

It has 3 magnets and a rubber fill port across the edge, with the coil placement within the center.

The TPP coils are a lot greater than the PnP coils, so by nature, the port can be a lot greater.

Sensible Mode vs RBA mode Vs Tremendous Enhance Mode

The DRAG 3 has 2 energy modes, RBA and Sensible, they each do what they are saying on the tin.

The Sensible mode recommends a wattage try to be utilizing relying on the resistance of the coil coil and it restricts the wattage so as to forestall you burning the coil too excessive and destroying the coil.

The RBA mode removes these good options, so in case you are utilizing a unique tank, the RBA pod or perhaps you simply need complete management of the ability, the RBA mode permits you to take action.

Tremendous Enhance Mode is barely obtainable when the coil resistance is between 0.1ohms and 0.3ohms.

The mod additionally needs to be set to above 80w. This mode is meant to deliver “super fast firing” and “huge vapour”.

Utilizing The VooPoo DRAG 3

Altering The Coil TPP Pod

  • Take away the Pod from the bottom
  • Holding it the wrong way up, pull the coil out of the underside of the pod
  • push/insert new coil
  • Fill the pod with e-liquid and depart for five minutes to permit the coil to soak

Filling The TPP Pod

  • Take away the Pod from the bottom
  • Holding it the wrong way up, carry up the rubber seal
  • Fill the pod by means of the newly uncovered fill gap
  • Reseal the fill gap.

DRAG X Plus Operation

  • Flip On/Off = Fireplace button 5 occasions
  • Change Mode (Sensible/RBA)= Fireplace button 3 occasions.
  • Enter Tremendous mode= you have to be utilizing a coil with a resistance between 0.1-0.3ohms. The mod will robotically go to spice up mode once you go over 80W.
  • Clear Knowledge (puff depend)= press and maintain Fireplace Button and ‘-‘ concurrently
  • Lock/Unlock Buttons = press and maintain Fireplace Button and ‘+’ concurrently
  • Change Display screen ‘theme’= press and maintain ‘-‘ and ‘+’ concurrently, use ‘-‘/’+’ to vary and maintain fireplace to pick out

How Does The Voopoo DRAG 3 Carry out?

The final EcigClick evaluation I did was the DRAG X Plus, which comes with the identical Pod Tank and coils.

They wasn’t dangerous however I didn’t suppose they was pretty much as good because the PnP variations.

So this part of the evaluation can be very attention-grabbing. Will the Coil/Pod system carry out higher on this mod? Perhaps this time the coils I’ve are higher high quality…

Both means, to provide the coils one of the best probability attainable, I’m additionally utilizing a unique flavour. I’m going at each coils with the Rochford Challenge Lemon Tart which is combined at 70VG/30PG and I’ve added a nicotine shot.

TPP-DM1 0.15ohm coil

TPP DM1 0.15ohm coil

This coil is advisable for 60-80w with a ‘best’ suggestion for 65-75W.

Means down at 50W, 15w beneath one of the best advisable wattage, it’s fairly good, it’s distinguished and virtually fills the mouth.

Don’t get me unsuitable, it’s not one of the best flavour but it surely’s undoubtedly spectacular for 15w beneath advisable. The cloud manufacturing is medium.

On the backside of the ‘best recommended’ vary 65W, it’s getting higher. The cloud is extra of a thick medium sized cloud and the flavour is nearly flooding the mouth however It’s nonetheless leaving me wanting extra.

75W is the highest of the ‘Best’ vary and the flavour has intensified, it’s now lots deeper and the flavour is flooding the mouth. As a cloud chaser I’d like extra cloud however it’s good and thick.

I’ve to say the identical as I stated within the Voopoo DRAG X Plus evaluation, when utilizing it though-out the day, the coil struggles to maintain the flavour.

One puff could be unbelievable and the subsequent could be fairly underwhelming. Reality be advised I spent at lot of the time utilizing this coil at 80W and I used to be unimpressed more often than not.

PP-DM2 0.2ohm Coil

TPP DM2 0.2ohm coil

This coil is advisable for 40-60w with a ‘best’ suggestion for 50-55W.

35W is 5w beneath the advisable vary and once more it’s higher than anticipated, offering a distinguished however not flooding flavour with a small cloud.

43W is simply above the underside advisable wattage and it’s underwhelming, it offers a medium sized cloud and a little bit of flavour.

On the backside of the ‘best’ wattage vary, at 50w, the flavour nonetheless simply isn’t adequate, it’s ample and it’s distinguished but it surely’s not fulfilling.

It’s not giving a extremely distinguished style in the back of the mouth.

Issues get a bit higher at 55W, the flavour spreads across the mouth properly abut nonetheless not flooding the mouth.

Let’s breath the roof! With excessive hopes, I switched to RBA mode and set it to 65W and though the vapour manufacturing was properly thick the flavour nonetheless wasn’t incredible.

Once more this coil did have moments wherein it kicked out some superb flavour, but it surely simply couldn’t stick with it.

Voopoo Drag 3 Coil Abstract

This has been my second run in with VooPoos TPP system and I’ve to say though it isn’t garbage, in actual fact it’s able to nice flavour but it surely’s no contender to the PnP system, in my view.

The TPP coils appear to have some time for the flavour to come back by means of correctly too.

If I used to be to match the TPP coils with the PnP coils, give me PnP coils on a regular basis.

Tremendous Enhance Mode

To strive increase mode I simply used the 0.15ohm coil and I wasn’t spectacular.

To present it the good thing about doubt, I put my twin coiled HellVape Useless Rabbit V2 RTA on to the mode, set it to the identical energy output I normally use and ‘had a go’.

super mode

Tremendous Enhance Mode appears to only be ‘Hard’ mode, when you don’t know what that’s, it’s a function that mods used to come back with.

Mainly Tender/Easy, would begin off at a decrease wattage and switch it, Regular would simply fireplace usually, and Laborious would begin at a better wattage after which flip it down.

Though it’s nice and I may undoubtedly inform a distinction…. I’m not fairly certain I just like the premise.

If, like me, you might be utilizing a 0.19ohm construct and also you wish to fireplace at 135W (which is my common energy setting for that construct), I’ve a alternative of Sensible mode which restricts me to 60W or Tremendous Enhance and no in between.

It’s an excellent function, but it surely suppose it could be higher if as soon as Tremendous Enhance had been activated you possibly can select to revert again to RBA mode.

Battery Lifetime of The VooPoo DRAG 3

Battery life on a twin battery mod is determined by what batteries and energy you might be utilizing.

Should you had been to make use of 2x 3,000mAh 18650 batteries and you’re taking 2 second puffs:

  • At 75W you’re going to get 444 puffs (A puff each different minute for 14 hours)
  • At 40W you’re going to get 832 puffs (A puff each different minute for 27 hours)

I at all times cost my batteries externally, however in case you are searching for charging it with out eradicating the battery, you may have a 2A USB-C port, so with 2x 3000mAh batteries you’re taking a look at about 3 hours.

Does the TPP Pod Tank Leak?

With the VooPoo DRAG X Plus I received fairly a little bit of leakage from the pod/coil, nevertheless though it’s the similar pod and coils the leakage was lots much less, but it surely did nonetheless leak a bit.

Execs

  • Seems to be and feels good
  • Twin 18650 batteries
  • 177W output (though i’d slightly 175 or 180 haha)
  • Able to nice flavour
  • 510 connection
  • The 510 adapter is suitable with the PNP Pods
  • Appears sturdy and sturdy

Cons

  • Flavour manufacturing isn’t at all times constant
  • Probably not life lengthy battery door latches
  • Probably weak Connection Plate

Closing Evaluation Verdict

If I’m being utterly sincere, I wouldn’t improve from one other VooPoo gadget.

The truth is I can’t consider any of the VooPoo gadgets I’d improve from.

Don’t get me unsuitable it’s an OK gadget, there isn’t actually something to complain about, but it surely simply doesn’t supply something additional, in my view.

The largest factor it has to supply is the TPP pod tank, however I massively favor the PnP vary, nevertheless that’s clearly topic to opinion

It’s able to nice flavour and clouds? Sure but it surely isn’t constant.

So…

As I requested on the DRAG X Plus evaluation, Is it time to cease dragging out this line of vape kits?

Are you utilizing or considering of shopping for the Voopoo DRAG 3, or have you ever received one?
