VooPoo based in China, was originally established in 2014 to serve the medical and industrials fields, since 2017 and with the acquisition of US brand WoodyVapes they have bought us some really interesting gear, Alpha One, Too, Drag, not forgetting about the VMate 200w we reviewed not long ago.

VooPoo are known for their Gene Chip, which is one of the fastest and most accurate chipsets on the market with the exception of DNA! This version of the Gene chip includes the “FIT” menu, interestingly enough they call the Chipset the Gene FIT.

So what do we think of the Drag 2? Will it live up to the reputation of its predecessor the Drag? Let’s find out with our in depth and close up look…………………..

This Kit was sent to us by VooPoo for the purpose of review. As always my thoughts and views are my own.

Design and Build Quality

The Drag 2 Kit comes well presented in a card box with a paper over sleeve; the spares are the standard quality and quantity from VooPoo.

UForce T2 Tank

This is a good quality, heavy, well constructed tank that looks the part too. No real big changes from its predecessor the UForce Tank apart from the colour and tank glass size options.

The styling of the tank somewhat strangely reminds me of Transformers or is that just me lol. The tank has a diameter of 26.5mm and is made from a stainless steel construction with pyrex and resin. voopoo uforce tank side empty

The tank dismantles into 5 parts including the coil for easy cleaning and maintenance.

Base/ Airflow

The bottom of the base has all the normal info presented.voopoo uforce tank infoThe stainless steel (SS) threading is well turned and holds a gold plated connection pin which sits a little proud.voopoo uforce tank 510 thread The bottom tri stop airflow is easy to turn.voopoo uforce tank TRI AFCThe coil screws into the base and has a stopper ring for the glass to sit upon.voopoo uforce tank cup

Coil/s

VooPoo include 2 coils with the tank both are kanthal stock coils, the pre installed is the U2 0.4Ω coil rated between 40 – 80w and best vaped at 55 – 65w.

The spare is the N3 Mesh 0.2Ω coil rated for use between 65 – 100w and best vaped at 75 – 85w.voopoo uforce tank stock

All UForce coils are compatible with this tank – U2, U4, U6, U8, N1, N2, N3, R1, D4 as well as P2. However, the P2 is not compatible with the TPD version because of the 2ml glass sizing.

Glass

Two Pyrex tanks are supplied, the 5ml bubble is pre installed, the spare is 3.5ml.voopoo uforce tank pyrex VooPoo have a range of additional glass sizes available for purchase separately 2ml (TPD) 3.5ml, 5ml, 5.5ml and 8ml.

Chimney fill port section

This section is in one piece, the coil screws into the base of the chimney and seated with an O ring, the chimney while short looking is embedded into the main structure, the glass is held in position by 2 O rings.voopoo uforce tank oringsTo open the fill port find the branded “UFORCE” logo and push open the cap, the port has an orange silicon bung lining the fill port.voopoo uforce tank assembly

Mouth piece

This is made of a colourful resin to match the Voopoo Drag 2 and is an 810 type with O rings, only one mouthpiece is supplied.voopoo uforce tank mp

Voopoo Drag 2 Mod

A beautifully smooth looking mod that is made of zinc alloy with a colourful resin plate on one side.voopoo 2 kit resin sideStanding 88.3mm tall 51mm wide with a depth of 26.5mm, the Drag 2 is slightly lighter in weight than the original Drag at 158g.

On the work panel of the device you have the fire button and adjustment buttons that are made of SS, the OLED screen is flush to the body and measures approx 26x10mm and has all the usual info expected, and micro usb port for charging/updates.voopoo 2 kit work faceFirmware updates can be made on the official Voopoo website.

The back of the device has a magnetised battery door which like its predecessor has the word DRAG printed in a large font.voopoo 2 kit dragThe door holds 2 magnets and marry to their hidden counter parts inside the mod, there is some movement to the door once in place.voopoo 2 kit magnets door

The connection point is a centre 510 with a gold plated spring loaded pin.voopoo 2 kit connectionThe plate is slightly raised and made of SS with the threading very well turned. Each edge of the mod has been chamfered making the Drag 2 very comfortable to hold.voopoo 2 kit plate

The bottom of the Drag 2 has 4 tiny battery vent holes along with branding and safety marks.voopoo 2 kit bottom

Inside the battery compartment, the sled has a battery ribbon the plastic sled is very clean; the battery connection points are clearly marked. Although I do wish manufacturers would take the hint from reviewers and mark these in white! voopoo 2 kit sledThe top of the sled is marked with “Just Drag and Gene Chip” the internal board/wires etc are hidden under the plastic sled.voopoo 2 kit drag marks

I would say that the overall construction quality and design of the Voopoo Drag 2 is excellent.

A Basic Quick Start Guide

UForce T2

  • Choose which coil fits you best, pre wick the coil by dropping a few drops of liquid into the coil and screw into the base.voopoo uforce tank prep
  • Choose which glass you wish to use.
  • Reassemble the tank, and fill with E-Liquid.voopoo uforce tank fill
  • Leave the tank to one side for 10 minutes so the coil can soak up more liquid.voopoo uforce tank full

Tip: each coil has a ‘min’ line, don’t vape below this line or your coil might burn out quickly.

How Does The Voopoo Drag 2 Kit Perform?

I have filled the UForce T2 tank with the Black Vine from the Rochford Project and will be using the pre installed U2 0.4Ω coil.voopoo 2 kit and liquid

30 to 55w

Setting the airflow to almost closed, it is possible to get an airy MTL draw at 30w. The flavour was very good with a decent amount of vapour produced.

Upping to 55w and opening the airflow up to half, the vapour production was thick and the flavour was good.voopoo 2 kit comfort

65 – 80w

Because the U2 coil is rated best at 55 to 65w I decided to start at 65w with the AF wide open, the vapour produced was warm and incredibly cloudy, with fairly good flavour.

Knocking the Drag 2 up until I reached 80w, which was a surprise for my poor old micro lungs as they almost exploded with the shear amount of vapour that was produced. I now keep the U2 coil at 65w which gives me the best balance of flavour and vapour.voopoo 2 kit 65w display

RDA

I changed up for my Drop Dead RDA with dual kanthal 22g coils 0.11 and fired the Drag 2 at 120w… WOW, the amount of vapour produced was incredible and while well over my tolerance for heat the flavour was very good.

The Drag 2 Menu System

The menu is basically the same as the original Drag being simple to use. The Drag 2 has an extra menu called “FIT” with 3 options to it

  1. Battery saving
  2. Best flavour
  3. Best cloud production

Personally I like to think of them as soft, medium, and high! Apparently according to VooPoo the “FIT” is best suited to stock tanks and in particular UForce tanks.

Battery Life

I have been using exclusively Samsung 30q batteries in the Drag 2 and have averaged 4.5 hrs at 65w, VooPoo do say the Drag has balanced charging. I still prefer charging externally.voopoo 2 kit batts in

Pros

  • The whole kit is good quality and has been designed well
  • Good flavour and vapour production from the UForce T2
  • Easy top filling
  • Good battery life
  • User friendly menu system

Cons

  • No concerns with this kit

Final Review Verdict

I approached the Voopoo Drag 2 with some caution as my experience with 2nd versions of anything tends to pale to the original!

I was very surprised to find that the Drag 2 does live up to the original Drag and in some respects eclipses it with weight, feel and usability. Only time will tell if it has the same durability as my year old original which has been beaten up considerably.

I’m not sure yet about the “FIT” menu, but the limited testing I did seems to belly VooPoo’s description.

Would I buy this Voopoo Drag 2 Kit again should I lose or break! Yes I would! In fact I already have a 2nd on order lol.

Kevin Jeffrey
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! In these past years I have gained a fair amount of experience with different types of vaping hardware, I am not an expert by any means I'm just a normal guy who has made a hobby from vaping! 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.
