It’s the follow-up that we’ve all been waiting for: the Voopoo Drag 2. Ever since the enormous success of the original Drag the vaping community have been anxiously awaiting an update, and that day has finally come.
The Drag 2 kit comes with the UFORCE T2 sub-ohm tank, and it’s compatible with the whole range of UFORCE coils. It also has a 5ml max capacity.
Having used the original Drag extensively over the last year as one of my go-to mods, I have a good idea of what’s new and what’s changed. I also have a good idea of what improvements I want to see.
In this Voopoo Drag 2 kit review, I’m going to go over everything that you need to know about this latest addition to the Drag family. I’ll also go over the UFORCE T2 tank.

Immediately upon taking the Drag 2 out of the box, you notice that the design is very similar to the original Drag. However, instead of a boxy shape with straight corners, the Drag 2 has beveled edges that feel nice to grip in your hand. It also has slightly curved front and back plates and this makes it comfortable to hold. Ergonomically, the Drag 2 feels great and is a huge improvement over the sharp-cuts of the original.
Another huge improvement on the Drag 2 is the paint quality. I’ve had no chipping or flaking, even on the bottom of the device. The original Drag was notorious for its terrible paint quality, and it was a large flaw in an otherwise amazing mod. Thankfully, this appears to have been fixed, as the paint has held up great on my Drag 2.
The resin on the front panel of the Drag 2 is very soft and smooth. The “Dawn” resin unit that we tested is a beautiful mix of orange, purple, and a dark turquoise that give the device a gorgeous and sophisticated look.
The back panel, which is also the battery cover, is emblazoned with the familiar “DRAG” logo that we’ve all come to know. Compared to the Drag, the logo on the Drag 2 is much darker and less noticeable, and also isn’t textured. I rather like this change, as I thought that the logo on the original stood out a little bit too much. The more subtle, dark logo looks much better to me.
The battery cover is attached by two strong magnets, and fits to the body of the device nicely. However, there is a little bit of wiggle room and so the battery cover does shift a bit in your hand during use. This is a little bit annoying, but not a huge deal. I can live with this one.
The battery compartment of the Drag 2 is very nice and clean, and uses spring loaded contacts. There is also a ribbon to allow you to easily remove your batteries. The positive and negative indicators are still black though. I wish they would at least paint these in white, but overall the build quality here is just as good as the rest of the mod. Looking good so far.
A nice change on the Drag 2 is its centered 510 connector. Tanks just always look better when they’re centered, rather than off to the side. I’m glad that Voopoo listened to the community and reviewers on this one.
There are three buttons on the Voopoo Drag 2: one large circular firing button, and two small adjustment buttons. The fire button is firm and nicely recessed for easy use, and works with just the right amount of pressure. The adjustment buttons are flat and rather tiny, but they are easy to use and work just fine. Below the adjustment buttons is a Micro-USB port for firmware updates.
The screen on the Drag 2 is a nice size at 0.91 inches and very crisp. It’s just bright enough when used indoors, however it can be a little dim when used outside. But if you upgrade the firmware on your Drag 2, you will have the option of adjusting the brightness. The Drag 2 will display basic vaping information such as: resistance, voltage, puff time, and wattage/temperature. Compared to the original Drag, the screen on the Drag 2 sits flush with the mod and is not recessed. Again, a welcome change.
When it comes to design, the Drag 2 is more clean and modern looking than its predecessor. The soft curves and beveled edges make it much nicer to hold and use, and the darker Drag logo makes the device blend better with the resin panel.
As for build quality, the paint on the Drag 2 is amazing and has held up without sign of flaking or chipping. The device is really well put together, and the buttons work marvelously. All-in-all, it seems like Voopoo took an already great device, eliminated the pain-points and flaws, and created the Drag 2. This device is looking good.
The UFORCE T2 tank is a sub-ohm tank with a 24.6mm base diameter. In terms of size and proportions, it looks perfect sitting atop the Drag 2. It even has a resin drip tip that matches the resin patterning of the mod, which is really neat. This drip tip is 14mm in diameter so it’s pretty wide bore, and is an 810.
The top cap on the UFORCE T2 slides open for easy filling. There’s an arrow directly above the UFORCE branding that lets you know where to push to slide it open. There is a silicone lining to ensure a proper seal and to prevent leaking, and the fill port is wide enough to accommodate dropper nozzles. I didn’t have a problem filling the tank, and found that it filled rather hassle-free and easily.
The UFORCE T2 comes with two glass tank sections: one is a 3.5ml capacity and the other is a 5ml max capacity. I don’t know about you, but I know which one I’m using! The 5ml gives you the freedom to fill up and not have to worry about refilling again for quite some time. This is great for long trips, or when you’re just out and about.
There are three airflow slots on the UFORCE T2, and they are medium sized and fully adjustable. Although the airflow is positioned on the bottom of the tank, there was absolutely no leaking whatsoever. Whether I filled the tank with the airflow open or the airflow closed, I never had any leaking. This is amazing, and I wish every tank was as leak-free as this one.
The best part about the UFORCE T2 is that it is compatible with the entire UFORCE coil family. There are currently ten different coils that you can use with the UFORCE T2, ranging from 0.13ohm all the way up to 0.60ohm. And not only do you get a varying choice of resistances, but you also get to choose single, double, or triple coils, as well as regular or mesh coils. For pre-built coils, the UFORCE family offers some of the most diverse ranges in the industry.
Included with the Drag 2 Kit, you get two coils: one U2 0.40ohm dual coil, and one N3 0.20 triple mesh coil. The U2 0.40ohm coil is a regular dual coil, and is rated for 40-80W. Voopoo state that it will function best 55-65W.
The N3 0.20ohm coil is a triple mesh coil, so you’ll be getting more massive flavor and clouds out of this coil due to the increased surface area. This coil is rated for 65-100W, however Voopoo suggest a recommended range of 75-85W for optimal performance.
The Drag 2 is powered by the new GENE FIT chip, which is an update to the Gene chip found on the original Drag. As mentioned previously, the Drag 2 requires two high-drain 18650 batteries to function. The device turns on or off with five clicks on the fire button.
With the Drag 2, you get a few options for modes: Power Mode, Temperature Control Mode, and five Memory Modes. The Drag 2 will fire at up to 177W in Power Mode, and will support SS, NI, and TI from 200-600F in TC.
The most interesting feature about the Drag 2 has got to be the “FIT” menu. There are three settings, and each one provides a different level of power to your coil. Finding out what each one did was almost impossible, as it isn’t listed anywhere in the manuals, but I did find the following information on the Voopoo website:
FIT 1: Battery Saving Mode
FIT 2: Maximum Flavor Mode
FIT 3: Maximum Clouds Mode
As far as I can tell, it just seems to increase the power to your coil. I noticed maybe a slight difference from FIT 1 to FIT 3, but nothing remarkable. I’m hoping that they clarify and provide more information on this mode in the near future.
Voopoo Drag 2 Button Combinations
Lock Device: Hold the + adjustment button and the fire button. “LOCK” will appear. The fire button as well as the adjustment buttons are now locked. To unlock, do the same. “UNLOCK” will appear.
Flip Screen Orientation: Hold the – adjustment button and the fire button. This will flip the orientation of the screen.
Change Modes: Press the fire button three times. This will allow you to switch between Power, FIT, and Temperature Control modes.
Memory Mode/Check Serial Number: Hold the – and + adjustment buttons together. This will take you into a menu that will allow you to access memory modes. You can also view your serial number of your device and firmware version.
Temperature Control – Change Wattage: Once in Temperature Control Mode (by pressing the fire button three times until in TC mode), press the fire button four times. Now you can change your wattage.
Temperature Control – Set Resistance: Once in TC Mode, hold the + and – adjustment buttons. This will take you into a menu. The third option will allow you to set your resistance using the adjustment buttons.
In the performance department, the Drag 2 is certainly no slacker. It sports a slightly higher maximum wattage than its predecessor at 177W — a 20W increase. This is thanks to the new GENE FIT chip, but I was curious to see how it would perform.
I tested the Drag 2 using both the included coils on the UFORCE T2, as well as with a few different builds on RDAs.
To start, the battery efficiency of the Drag 2 is very good. It seemed to manage power much better than some other dual battery mods, even when using it at higher wattages.
With the UFORCE T2 tank and the 0.40ohm coil, I found the vape to be very pleasant but light. The vapor was not very dense, but the flavor was good. Hitting it at around 65W, it wasn’t strong or dense enough for me personally. But it was very smooth, and fired the moment you fired the mod.
The 0.20ohm N3 coil was the better coil by far, and was much more enjoyable and flavorful. This is because the N3 coil is a triple mesh coil, and thus the increased surface area leads to more vapor, and better flavor. I found the vapor to be dense and very tasty at around 75-85W, which is also the range recommended by Voopoo.
Temperature Control vaping is also great with the Drag 2, just as it was with the original. Aside from DNA chips, the GENE chip was known as being the next best chip for TC.
The FIT Modes just seemed to provide Bypass mode, but with a boost at the higher levels 2 and 3. I found that it was just the same to use wattage mode rather than the FIT modes, and decrease or increase the wattage. However, you may prefer to use this mode as it is more simple and straightforward to use. You don’t have to change settings or worry about wattage, simply adjust the the FIT settings up or down for a hotter or cooler draw.
In my testing the GENE FIT chip didn’t disappoint, and performed amazing in TC mode for stainless steel and titanium. I didn’t have a chance to test it with NI coils, but I assume it will perform just as great. No complaints from me in the TC department, that’s for sure.
The Drag 2 is a mod with a great chip and great battery efficiency that fires nearly instantly. The UFORCE T2 tank and included coils pair perfectly with the Drag 2, and offer a premium flavor experience right out of the box.
How does the successor to the legendary Drag score? By fixing the tiny flaws that were present in the original such as paint quality and ergonomics, the Drag 2 is definitely more desirable than its predecessor. Plus you get improved battery efficiency, a higher wattage output range, and the FIT mode (which may or may not be for you. Test it for yourself and decide).
The UFORCE T2 tank that comes with the kit also looks great on the mod and produces respectable flavor and clouds. It also doesn’t leak at all, which is hard to come by in a bottom airflow tank.
If you’re in the market for a new dual battery mod, the Drag 2 kit is definitely worth checking out. You get a timeless mod along with a tank that supports a wide range of coils. You’ll be getting a lot of vaping time out of this kit, that’s for sure. Stay Versed!
