This time I’m going to be taking a look at one of Voopoo’s latest additions to their Argus range of devices the Argus GT II.

Voopoo Argus GT2 article header

This high wattage dual battery kit is paired with the updated Maat Tank New!

I was fortunate a couple of years ago to review the predecessor of this kit, however the GT II is a different animal entirely!Voopoo Argus GT2 with orig GT mod

Voopoo were originally setup 2010 as a medical electronic research company based in China.

2016 they acquired Woody Vapes and so began their journey into the world of E-cigarettes!

Over the years Voopoo have given us many kits some of their ranges include – the Alpha SeriesDrag series, the Vinci series and the Argus range!

What Can We Expect From the Voopoo Argus GT II?

The kit is available in 5 colours – Carbon Fibre, Graphite, Silver Grey, Lime Green and Dark Blue!Voopoo Argus GT2 colours available

For me the original Maat Tank was probably the last best tank that Voopoo manufactured. The Maat Tank New has a leak proof design that they say stops condensation build-up for improved flavour!

The Argus GT II device is much more than its predecessor the Argus GT. This new version has a power output of 200W, 3A fast charging, and a physical locking switch. On top of all that this is an IP68 rated device, meaning the mod is water, dust and shockproof!

This sample kit was sent to me direct from Voopoo, for the purpose of review!

As always my views and thoughts are my own after considerable testing period.

Design and Build Quality

Voopoo sent me a standard sample of the kit so my review is based on this, the colour sent they call Lime Green. The kit comes in a really nice tin box that has been moulded with several motifs!

Even if it is somewhat a familiar design the whole kit has a great quality to it.

So How Does the Voopoo Argus GT II Kit Perform?

For the purpose of this review I will be using the TPP-DM3 0.15Ω coil in the Maat Tank New. I will be filling it up with “Fruit Gummies” hand crafted by Kwik Vape.

A Basic Quick Start Guide

Voopoo Maat Tank New

Choose one of the two coils which come with the kit.

  • Prime the coil with a few drops of e-liquid on all exposed cotton and press the coil into the tank.Voopoo Argus GT2 prep coil
  • Screw on the 510 base.
  • Remove the fill cap and locate a fill port within the silicone stopper and fill the tank with E-liquid.Voopoo Argus GT2 tank filling
  • Replace the cap and let the tank stand for about 3 minutes before firing so the cotton can soak up more liquid!
  • Screw the Maat Tank New on to the GT II and away you go!

Voopoo Argus GT II Device

Place two 18560 batteries into the device following the orientation guide.

You can charge the batteries via the type C 3A port, but as always I recommend external charging.

Voopoo Argus GT II Kit – In Use

Man I love this kit, it feels just right in my hand and functions just as I would expect of an outdoor rugged mod!

The Maat Tank New

This is a fairly good tank, I am impressed with the flavour and vapour production I get from it. I’ve never seen an airflow operated with a slider before so I give credit to Voopoo for coming up with something new, at least to me!

Voopoo Argus GT2 maat in use

However it is a very airy tank it makes some strange noises in use lol. When restricted to almost closed, the airflow gives off a whistle like effect and fully open it sounds like the Gruffalo would after a long run lol.

Argus GT II Device

I am impressed with the quality of this mod, it’s very comfortable to hold and is just the right size and weight for my large hands.

Comparing the Geekvape L200 and the GT II side by side, the GT II is heavier and wider!

Voopoo Argus GT2 with L200

The only thing that irk’s me slightly with this mod is the chipset, after the screen times out you have to push the fire button twice to carry on vaping!

I must say I do like the GT II screen it has a large wattage size which is great for my old man’s eyes lol but sadly I still need my specs to read the rest of the screen info!

Voopoo Argus GT2 screen 80w

I have been using the 0.15Ω coil at 75/80W with the RBA (VW) mode the coil lasted me 4 days of semi constant use!

In RBA mode and 2 freshly charged 18650 batteries it lasted me 3.5hrs at 75W before needing a recharge.

I tested the shockproof qualities by dropping the mod several times on my desk and apart from the battery door coming open it didn’t disrupt functionality!

Pros

  • Quality and Design
  • Great coil life
  • Good flavour and vapour production
  • Comfortable in hand
  • IP68 protection seems to work

Cons

  • Chipset timeout
  • Noisy tank

Final Review Verdict

This device is not for beginners, saying that it fits my style of vaping great, it is very comfortable in my hand. The only cons I have are that the tank produces some weird sounds and the screen timeout restart!

Would I recommend the Voopoo Argus GT II Kit?

For those that like a rugged heavy powerful device “Yes”.

Would I buy this kit again due loss or damage?

“Yes” but I might leave the tank next time in favour of my original Maat tank!

Hi my name is Kevin, I started vaping back in 2009 mainly because my little boy at 3 years old was starting to copy the way daddy smoked a cigarette! Over the years I have gained a good amount of experience with different types of vaping hardware but I'm just a normal guy who enjoys sharing my experiences. This is why I started my Youtube vape review channel in 2014. To date the channel has had over 500,000 views. Being disabled, vaping has given me a gateway to meeting people from all different walks of life, many of those I would not have met under other circumstances. The way I look at my reviews is, if I can convince just one person to give up the stinky’s my job is done. I class myself as a tinkerer as I like to take things apart to see how they work and put them back together, yes that includes e-cigarette mods! One day I would like to be able to design my own mod. I am a dedicated father, and husband to my sweetheart of nearly 30 years! Family to me comes before anything else.
