VooPoo Drag’s design is excellent – a box mod with 2 diagonal corners cut off. Drag’s material on the front side is made of carbon fiber and on the opposite side, it is engraved with the name DRAG. The 510 connector with two screws can be found on the top and is designed to fix it firmly to the mod.

Mod’s bottom, on the other hand, has two lines of needle-styled venting holes. The fire button, two adjustment buttons, the screen, and the USB port can be found on one of the side faces. The fire button’s feedback of pressing is very ringing and is pretty ergonomically designed.

While the screen is not that big, it is enough to display the battery remnant power under different modes and other corresponding information. The vape’s two adjustment buttons are arranged vertically. It is convenient to carry around and use when traveling with its portable small size and compact design.

voopoo drag functions and performance
The VooPoo Drag has a 5 to 157W output and is powered by the latest custom-made Gene chip. It performs really well, with the fastest firing speed in the world of 0.025 seconds. The Gene chip that powers mod precisely controls its temperature and output with more power. Allowing vaper to get better taste and bigger clouds, Voopoo Drag has a wattage range of 130 to 157W with atomizers of 0.1 to 3 ohms.

The mod also features a newly-added voltage mode, providing a chance to alter the amount of vaping cloud to find faster what is perfect for the user. A stable power output ensures the power of the atomizer. As the atomizer’s coil resistance is customizable, adjust the modes to your personal preference and get the best vaping experience. Operating box mod is a breeze and the one-watt adjustment increments is a nice touch.

Best Tank for VooPoo Drag

Voopoo drag tank compatibility is universal. The vape mod works with any type of the vape tank and RDA. For users that are looking for a customized vaping experience, RDA’s are a great option.

Also, VooPoo drag vape mod supports mesh coil tanks allowing a user to get the maximum of the flavor and clouds. Mesh coil Sub Ohm tanks fit well the mod, so choosing tank like Smok TFV12 vaper can achieve huge vapor clouds.

VooPoo Drag Kit

The VooPoo Drag kit comes in a box with a cover that bears similarity with leather and has the classic red and black color scheme. The kit comes with the box mod itself, a micro USB cable, an instruction manual, a gene chip card, and a warranty card.

The vape mod can be purchased in several different body finishes and colors — which are silver, black, and gold for the finishes and the colors being azure, jade, purple jade, rainbow, turquoise, full black carbon, black green carbon, black blue carbon, black gold carbon, black silver carbon, and black red carbon. All these grants that every vaper finds what is looking for, no matter what the preference is.

Specifications and Features

The VooPoo Drag, with its chip, can do everything a high-end chip can do while also being one of the most powerful chip around and one of the fastest firings at that one. The vape is extremely power efficient with a 95% chip efficiency rating which means reliable and accurate power output regardless of whether the mod is in variable wattage or temperature control mode.

Variable Wattage

The mod’s variable wattage is smart and is able to make ideal output recommendations for the attached atomizer and can easily adjust. Pressing the fire button four ties leads to the wattage adjustment interface — which is indicated by a flashing letter W.

The wattage could be adjusted from 5 watts to 80 watts. 5 watts to 192 watts means normal mode, while mod’s super mode activates between 130 watts and 157 watts for high wattage vapers. Each step is 1 watt. It is easy to access — just press the fire button thrice in rapid succession. Attaching an atomizer prompts the mod to ask if it is a new coil, it then sets the wattage to 45 watts if press yes.

Temperature Control

VooPoo Drag’s temperature could be controlled and adjusted, and the Gene chip it comes with does a great job of monitoring the temperature of the coil while protecting it by never overheating. The temperature control in this mod is incredibly accurate and full-featured. Drag also supports SS3116, Ni200, Ti, NC, and TCR.

Pressing the down button coverts the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa. The temperature control wire can be turned on or off through the app function when the device is connected to a computer.


The VooPoo Drag’s computer chip, which is called the Gene chip, has been updated and is a highly sought-after chip. It allows users to change when the mod times out (it is set at 10 seconds). While the software is basic and simple, the mod is easily customized by changing some of its operating characteristics like vaping time-out and custom vaping curves.

Drag mod also features the option of changing the vape’s screens and updating the firmware. The software interface is easy to use with the vape, but it should be noted that it is easier to use with a PC. The voltage regulation mode is similar to the mechanical mode and is specially designed for advanced vapers.

Locking the up and down button will lock the fire button, too. Aside from being easy to use, the software is powerful enough to satisfy a vaper’s vaping need in both variable wattage and temperature control.

VooPoo Drag Manual

The VooPoo Drag manual’s first page shows and labels the different parts of the vape. It mentions the vape’s dimensions which are 90 by 54 by 24 mm.

The specifications of the vape, such as its working voltage, working current, output voltage range, output current range, resistance under wattage mode, resistance under temperature control mode, output power, charging voltage, charging current, quiescent current, temperature range, working efficiency, and firmware upgrades.

Drag is equipped with eight safety protection functions. Box mod’s manual includes instructions on how to power on and off the vape, the mode switch instruction, the temperature adjustment instruction, the wattage control instruction, the vape’s function menu, its customization mode, its sleep mode, and details on how to charge it. Not to waste batteries and get the most of vaping the manual gives tips on charging time, requirements for the battery’s specs, suggested battery brands, its screen, and the accommodation coefficient of the TC wire.

For safe vaping, we recommend to look it through as it also has some warnings for the user as a guide.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
