Design and Build Quality
The VooPoo Drag Mini Kit comes well presented in a card box with an over sleeve, the spares are the standard quality and quantity expected from VooPoo.
Like the Drag 2, the Mini is a beautifully smooth looking mod that is made of zinc alloy with a colourful resin plate on one side. it stands 81.5mm tall 48.5mm wide with a depth of 25.5mm, the back of the Drag Mini has the now famous “DRAG” printed in the overly large font, inside the case is the hidden the integrated 4400mAh Internal battery. The work face of the device has the expected fire/adjustment buttons made of stainless steel, a micro usb point for charging and updates (available at Voopoo support centre).
The Oled screen displays all the normal info you would expect from this type of device, the screen measure approx 25x11mm and is flush to the body of the mod. Each edge of the mod has been chamfered like the Drag 2 making the Mini very comfortable to hold.
The bottom of the Drag Mini has 4 tiny battery vent holes along with branding and safety marks as well as a pin reset button. The top of the mod holds the connection point which is a centre 510.The 510 plate is slightly raised and made of SS, with channels for those that use tanks with 510 fed AF; the SS threading is well turned and has a gold plated spring loaded pin.
The Drag Mini is more palm friendly than either of its predecessors. Overall construction quality and design of the Drag Mini is excellent.
UForce T2 Tank
A well constructed heavy tank, the quality is good and the design is well done. We have previously fully reviewed the UForce T2 tank alongside the Drag 2! The tank has a diameter of 28mm and is made from a stainless steel construction with Pyrex and resin. The tank dismantles into 5 parts including the coil for easy cleaning. The tank utilises top filling.Plus bottom tri airflow. The only change VooPoo have made to this tank compared to the one that comes with the Drag 2 is the coils that come with it.
Pre installed is the P2 coil which is a 0.6Ω single mesh coil, best fired between 24 and 28w the spare N1 mesh coil is 0.13Ω, 50 to 100W, best fired between 70W to 80W. FYI both coils are kanthal.
All UForce coils are compatible with this tank – U2,U4,U6,U8,N1.N2,N3,R1,D4,P2 however the P2 is not compatible with the TPD version because of the 2ml glass sizing. VooPoo have also a range of additional glass sizes available for purchase separately 2ml (TPD) 3.5ml, 5ml, 5.5ml and 8ml.
A Basic Guide to Getting Started
- Choose which coil suits you best and screw into the base, pre wick the coil by dropping a few drops of liquid into the coil.
- Choose which glass you wish to use.
- Reassemble the tank, and fill with E-Liquid.
- Leave the tank to one side so the coil can soak up more liquid.
Tip: each coil has a min line, don’t vape below this line or your coil might burn out quickly.
- Insure your Drag Mini is fully charged before using it for the first time.
- Screw on your T2 tank.
- Enjoy your new VooPoo Drag Mini kit.

How Does The Voopoo Drag Mini Kit Perform?
For this review I have filled the UForce T2 tank with the Black Vine by The Rochford Project and I will be using the pre installed P2 coil.
Using mouth to lung style vape with the airflow almost closed, I experienced a tight cool vape the vapour production was acceptable and the flavour was very good.
24 to 28w
Opening the AF up to half, and setting the unit at 24 and then 28w with a MTL style vape I found that the draw was smooth but on the looser side, the vapour production was fairly dense with a very good flavour.
At 30w I was able to get a restricted direct to lung hit, again the flavour was very good, the vapour production was good enough for me with the AF set to just under ¾ open.
Using the Drag Mini with the P2 coil installed in the UForce T2 at 25w I found that the battery life was excellent I averaged 5 ½ to 6 hrs.
Using my Drop Dead RDA I was able to pump up the wattage but obviously found that the higher the watts I used the quicker the battery would ebb!
I have figured for me personally, setting the Drag Mini to 50w with dual Kanthal 0.12Ω coils and DTL I can expect approx 3hrs vape time, which while not brilliant sure out beats a lot of the internal battery mods on the market.
The menu is basically the same as the original Drag; giving you TC, Power and TCR memory options! Overall the menu system is simple to use, the Drag Mini like the Drag 2 has an extra menu called “FIT” with 3 options to it
- Battery saving
- Best flavour
- Best cloud production
Personally I like to think of them as soft, medium, and high!
According to VooPoo the FIT menu is best suited to stock coil tanks and in particular UForce tanks, I can confirm that the FIT menu does function as stated.
I used 3 different UForce coils in the tank and the system seems to be intelligent and matches different coils to different wattages! Personally speaking I like to stay to power mode as I can fine tune the wattage to my taste.
- Well constructed and designed kit with very good quality
- Excellent battery life at lower watts
- User friendly menu
- Comfortable in the hand
- Good Vapour production
- Good Flavour production
- Easy top filling
- No concerns with this kit
- Price Point – Shop around
Final Review Verdict
I have to give VooPoo credit where credit is due!
The Drag Mini has left me speechless; I am hard pressed to find anything to moan about lol.
This little beast is capable of producing an extraordinary amount of vapour and flavour with the right coil in the “T2”!
I don’t use mods that have internal batteries often because of the frustration of running out of power after just a couple of hours but this device can also outlast similar sized box mods with an integrated battery. The form factor of the device also makes for a nice, comfortable palm full.
Essentially what VooPoo have done here with the Drag Mini is to take the Drag 2 shrink the case a little and bung in a an internal battery, while still leaving us with the full capability of the Drag 2 and the Gene “FIT” Chipset, they have even given you the same exact tank “T2” to complete the kit, while a very good tank I’d like to have seen something slightly different for this one.
Would I buy the Voopoo Drag Mini again if lost or damaged? While I like the Drag Mini and comparing it to my Drag 2 I’d have to say “No” its so similar to the Drag 2, apart from the internal battery I can’t say I would miss it.
