Our Verdict

When it comes to the design and build quality, the Drag 4 is just as nice of a device as its predecessor. From just looks alone, the Drag 4 looks a lot like the Drag 3. However, some of the less obvious design changes like the new battery door and physical locking switch are great changes that make the Drag 4 even better. It also looks a bit more refined and premium due to the toned down branding and use of real wood and leather.

On the performance side, I’m disappointed that there isn’t a TCR mode but the four TC modes that it does have should cover the majority of vapers using TC. It performs surprisingly well in my testing and makes for a great mod for SS316 TC vaping. 

Smart mode (wattage) and RBA mode performance are what you would expect from a good dual battery mod, which is consistent and accurate power. The Drag 4 is more than good enough to use with RBAs or non-Voopoo tanks, but it does just as well with the UFORCE-L tank that comes with the kit. The UFORCE-L tank is impressive for a top airflow tank and in addition to the good flavor, the design makes it basically leak proof so you really can’t go wrong.

If you’re in the market for a new mod, the Drag 4 is one of the best that you can get right now. If you could use a new tank too, then the UFORCE-L makes the kit worth the purchase. All around, the Drag 4 is highly recommended.

Anyone who has been vaping for even a few months will no doubt have heard of Voopoo. They’re one of the most prominent manufacturers of vaping devices and their products cover all categories in the vaping world, from tanks, to mods, to pod vapes

Voopoo’s overwhelming popularity can arguably be attributed back to the success of their DRAG series of devices, all starting with the original Drag mod. Since then, there have been countless “DRAG” devices, including newer iterations of the original mod like the Drag 2 and Drag 3. Most recently, Voopoo released their Drag 4 kit and it’s looking like the best Drag mod yet.

The Drag 4, like the Drag 3, can fire from 5-177W and features a maximum output voltage of 8.4V. It features a number of modes, including SMART and TC modes, as well as support for 3A Type-C charging. One new feature to grace this latest Drag mod is the inclusion of a physical locking switch, which can be changed to perform a number of different functions.

Included with the Drag 4 kit is Voopoo’s new UFORCE-L tank. It’s a top airflow sub-ohm tank with a 5.5ml capacity. This tank is compatible with all of Voopoo’s PnP coils and you get two coils with the kit. 

I’ll go over the design, performance, and features of the Drag 4 mod, as well as provide a detailed overview of the included UFORCE-L tank. Is Voopoo’s latest tank and mod kit a combo worth your money? Read on to find out.

Design & Build Quality

  • Voopoo Drag 4 Mod - 1

While the Drag 3 was completely redesigned from its predecessor, the Drag 4 is a much smaller change from the Drag 3. They’re very similar in look and style and Voopoo has only made small refinements to the design on the Drag 4. If you liked the look and feel of the Drag 3 then you’ll feel the same way about the Drag 4.

The Drag 4 is 87mm tall, 52.4mm wide, and 25.4mm deep. It’s a good size for a dual battery mod and it isn’t bulky in the least. The slim rectangle shape is the definition of a box mod for me. It’s not much thicker than the two 18650 batteries that it holds and only a little taller and deeper.

The color options for the Drag 4 are impressive. There’s two “series” of Drag 4: the resin series and the wood series. The resin series offers three differently colored resin panels, while the wood series offers either walnut or rosewood panels. Both series feature a zinc-alloy frame and leather grip with the color of the frame and grip depending on the color of the panel that you get.

I received the Black and Walnut Drag 4 for this review and I have to say, it’s really nice. The frame is a matte black color, with solid walnut wood panels and a dark brown leather grip. Other devices may claim to be premium but the Drag 4 is the real deal. It feels like the premium device that Voopoo claims it is and it certainly looks the part too. All of the materials appear to be real too so it’s evident that Voopoo didn’t cheap out on the construction of the Drag 4.

One big change from the Drag 3 is the battery door implementation on the Drag 4. Instead of a sliding hinged door on the bottom of the device, the panels/grip on the Drag 4 pull away from the mod horizontally to access the battery compartment. 

It’s a strong magnetic connection and the device feels like it’s all one piece when the battery door is installed. Honestly, if you didn’t know that this was the way to access the batteries, you would think that it’s an internal battery mod. The fitment of the battery door is perfect and it doesn’t move at all when it’s installed.

  • Voopoo Drag 4 Kit - 1

With the battery cover removed you’ll see a warning sticker cautioning you against using batteries with tears or knicks in the wrap, as well as a clean battery compartment. There are gold plated contacts and the top terminals are spring loaded. There’s a small raised piece of plastic to separate the two batteries, which is a nice touch. There’s also a ribbon here to make removal of your batteries easier. Two 18650 batteries fit in here snugly but not so tight as to damage the batteries. Once installed there’s no movement of the batteries at all.

One panel has a small rectangle DRAG 4 logo near the bottom corner and the grip is embossed with a VOOPOO logo. It’s small and subtle branding that isn’t nearly as in your face as the Drag 3 and I think that I like it better. It’s classier for sure.

The top of the Drag 4 features a round 510 plate that is positioned towards the back. The 510 connector is spring-loaded and firm, with a good amount of throw. The threading for the connector is very smooth so it’s easy to attach and remove tanks. 

Finally, around the business end of the Drag 4 there is a large circular fire button, a 1.5” color display, a locking switch, two small round adjustment buttons, and a Type-C port. The buttons are a lot like the Drag 3, only here they are chrome as opposed to matte, and more deeply indented.

Another change is the presence of a locking switch. This switch slides up or down and, through the settings menu, can be set to do a few different functions of your choice. By default it locks the entire device if you slide it down, and unlocks the entire device by sliding up. The switch is nice and firm and delivers a satisfying click when switched up or down.

The screen is full color, bright, crisp, and clear. The UI is a lot cleaner and less crowded than the UI on the Drag 3, which is a welcome change.


Features & Functions

Voopoo Drag 4 - Features

The Drag 4 uses Voopoo’s Gene.TT 2.0 chipset. Like previous Drag mods, the Drag 4 can fire from 5-177W. An oddly specific maximum wattage, but one that should be enough for even the most power-hungry builds.

The Drag 4 has four different modes: Smart, RBA, Eco, and TC. Under the TC mode you can select from either Ni200, Titanium, Stainless Steel 316, or Stainless Steel 430. Unfortunately, there’s no TCR mode. 

Smart mode is mainly meant to be used with the UFORCE-L tank that you get in the kit, but it can still be used with any tank. This mode restricts the wattage range for the coil that you use in order to prevent you from burning the coil. It’s a great mode for new vapers or even those vapers who want to make sure that they’re staying within the recommended wattage range for the coil. Because this mode calculates the maximum wattage based on the reading of the resistance of your coil, it’s not always accurate in setting wattage limits.

RBA mode is basically standard wattage mode and is meant to be used with rebuildables or non-Voopoo tanks. You can set the wattage to whatever you desire when using this mode, with no restrictions. You don’t have to use this mode if you’re using a non-Voopoo tank or RBA, but it will give you more freedom as to how you set your wattage, rather than being limited by what the Drag 4 calculates as the maximum wattage.

ECO mode is an interesting and useful mode that aims to save battery. When the battery is at 20%, a prompt will come on asking if you want to enable ECO mode. Voopoo says that eco mode will prolong usage times by 10%, which is a good amount of extra battery life to be fair, but I didn’t use it too much. 

For me, if I’m using a high wattage mod with a tank and coil that is best at 60W+ then I can live with the fact that I’m not going to get days of use out of two fully charged 18650 batteries. However, I can see ECO mode being useful if you’re out of the house with no way to charge your batteries and need just a little more usage time to last you until you get home. Either way, Eco mode is there if you choose to use it.

As far as the TC modes, I’m disappointed that there isn’t a TCR mode but the four TC modes that are there should be useful for the majority of vapers out there. Apparently, Voopoo did months of research to determine the most commonly used modes with temperature control and these were Ni200, Titanium, SS316, and SS430. Narrowing this down even further, I think that SS316 and SS430 will be the materials that most vapers will be using TC with so the Drag 4 has those users covered.

The display on the Drag 4 shows your wattage in huge numbers, along with your mode, individual battery life indicators, voltage, coil resistance, puff time, and a puff counter. You can change modes by holding both adjustment buttons together and then selecting the mode menu. In this settings menu you can also change the color of the UI, reset the puff counter, or most interestingly, change the function of the locking switch.

The locking switch can be set to perform three functions: lock the entire device, lock only the adjustment buttons, or power on/off. I preferred using it to lock the adjustment buttons so that I didn’t accidentally change my wattage, but if you throw your mods in your pocket or purse often then leaving it to lock the entire device might be the better idea.


Drag 4 Button Combinations

  • Power On/Off: Press the power button five times.
  • Enter the settings menu: Press and hold both adjustment buttons. Then, use the adjustment buttons and power button to navigate the menu.
  • Change modes: Press and hold both adjustment buttons. Navigate to “Mode” using the adjustment buttons. Choose your mode and then press the power button to select it. 

UFORCE-L Tank

  • Voopoo Drag 4 Mod - 6

The UFORCE-L tank is included with the Drag 4 kit. It’s a top airflow tank, so the possibility of leaking is greatly reduced, and there are three airflow slots. The airflow control ring rotates freely 360° without a stopper and it can be set to anywhere you desire.

The drip tip is an 810 and it is removable but you have to really work it out of there. At first I thought that it couldn’t be removed because it was so snugly fit. But after working at it, it eventually came off.

The UFORCE-L tank uses Voopoo’s PnP coils and it’s compatible with both the older coils with the red o-rings and the newer PnP coils with the purple o-rings. Included in the kit are the new PnP TW15 coil (0.15Ω) and a new PnP TW20 coil (0.20Ω). Both of these coils are made with what Voopoo calls their “Dual In One tech” which just means that they have a double mesh design inside.

Voopoo also says that these coils maintain a good and original taste until 40ml of eliquid is used, which is a lot of ejuice. I’ve ran 20ml+ through each coil and the flavor is starting to drop off a bit but not by much, so there might be some truth to this claim. 20ml is a lot of ejuice for a single coil, so it’s already impressive performance as it is. If each coil truly lasts for 40ml of ejuice then these would be some of the longest lasting coils on the market.

The UFORCE-L tank has a 4ml capacity out of the box but you also get a 5.5ml capacity bubble glass. I immediately started using this bubble glass with the UFORCE-L and I suggest that you do too. You’ll have to refill less and plus, I think the tank looks better with the bubble glass.

The top cap can be removed with a quarter turn, revealing a silicone lined top with two fill port locations. You can use either one to fill and the other one acts as an air-relief hole. 

The UFORCE-L tank has a base that you have to unscrew in order to insert or remove coils. This base also functions to trap any ejuice that may leak out of the bottom of the coil so it’s basically a leak-proof tank. I’ve been routinely inspecting the base of the tank while I’ve been using it and there’s been small droplets of ejuice and some condensation, but no major amounts of ejuice. 

Once you have the base unscrewed, installing a coil is simply a matter of pushing it into the tank. 

All of the threading on the UFORCE-L is really smooth, so good on Voopoo here. I also like the general look of the tank. There’s an icon that kind of looks like cerberus (the three headed dog) on the tank which feels a little out of place, but otherwise it’s a nice tank.


Performance

Voopoo Drag 4 Kit - 5

The Drag 4 has impressed me during the few weeks that I’ve been using it. From a purely design standpoint, it’s a very nice mod to carry around with you and for me, that’s really important. Of course, the performance is what really matters, but I like using a mod that looks good while I’m vaping too. 

In addition to the good looks, it’s just a convenient mod to use. It’s really comfortable to hold thanks to the grip, and things like swapping out the batteries or locking the device are easy to do. The battery door comes off easily and the ribbon makes popping out batteries hassle-free. Simply sliding the switch is all that needs to be done if you’re throwing it in your pocket.

Now we get to what is most important — the performance. While it’s disappointing that the Drag 4 doesn’t have TCR, I’m mostly a SS316 vaper so I was still able to use TC with my RBAs. The TC mode performance is surprisingly good for a non-DNA mod and perfectly usable. I got a really good vape with my single coil SS316 build in my Dead Rabbit Solo and once I found the temperature that I desired it was a really consistent vape.

I also used Smart mode with the Dead Rabbit Solo and honestly, I didn’t have a reason to use RBA mode. The wattage range that it set was perfect for what I wanted to vape at. You might find this to be different depending on the tank and coils that you use but for the most part, you’ll probably be good just leaving it in Smart mode.

The Drag 4 kit comes with the UFORCE-L tank, a top airflow tank. I wasn’t expecting too much from this tank due to it being a kit tank and because of the top airflow set up, but it’s actually very good.

The coils that you get for the UFORCE-L are the same, new PnP coils as the ones that you get with the DRAG E60 and H80S. The 0.15Ω coil is really good from 60-70W and produces good flavor, warm vapor, and an overall nice vaping experience. The 0.20Ω coil is similar, not quite as flavorful, but still enjoyable to use.

Out of the two coils, I liked the 0.15Ω coil the most but I didn’t mind using either of them. For a top airflow tank, the UFORCE-L is really good and it makes picking up the Drag 4 kit a really good buy.


Verdict

When it comes to the design and build quality, the Drag 4 is just as nice of a device as its predecessor. From just looks alone, the Drag 4 looks a lot like the Drag 3. However, some of the less obvious design changes like the new battery door and physical locking switch are great changes that make the Drag 4 even better.

On the performance side, I’m disappointed that there isn’t a TCR mode but the four TC modes that it does have should cover the majority of vapers using TC. It performs surprisingly well in my testing and makes for a great mod for SS316 TC vaping. 

Smart mode (wattage) and RBA mode performance are what you would expect from a good dual battery mod, which is consistent and accurate power. The Drag 4 is more than good enough to use with RBAs or non-Voopoo tanks, but it does just as well with the UFORCE-L tank that comes with the kit. The UFORCE-L tank is impressive for a top airflow tank and in addition to the good flavor, the design makes it basically leak proof so you really can’t go wrong.

If you’re in the market for a new mod, the Drag 4 is one of the best that you can get right now. If you could use a new tank too, then the UFORCE-L makes the kit worth the purchase. All around, the Drag 4 is highly recommended.

  • Hi,
    If i want to substitute the U-force L tank with a better one that enhances flavor for the drag 4, which tank would you recommend? Either for PNP or TTP Coils?

    • The UFORCE-L is the best tank for the PnP coils. However, I would check out the Freemax Fireluke 4 or the HorizonTech Aquila tank if you’re looking for even better flavor!

  • Hi Adam –
    I am new to vaping and want to thank you for taking the trouble to write this incredibly thorough and thoughtful review. There was another less thorough but credible review on this kit which was highly critical of the G-Force-L tank in particular – essentially claiming it was a worthless tank to consider spending any additional money to get as part of a kit. That review had steered me reluctantly away from this kit altogether, even though I totally loved so many other features about the Drag 4 mod and the GForce-L tank and its proprietary VooDoo PnP coils.

    Moreover, to me, it seemed to be ridiculous to buy the Drag 4 mod only (as the other reviewer suggested) when for less than $10 more to purchase the whole kit, you get the UForce-L leak-proof tank, 2 extra coils, a extra larger bubble bottle and spare O-rings. Thanks to your much more thorough and more credible review, I was able to easily purchase the Drag 4 kit without the slightest degree of any further hesitation. Again, my grateful thanks to you!

  • I have been Vaping 12 years, I started with the Drag 2 then the 3.
    I just bought the Drag 4, it’s Amazing the new battery compartment is a BIG improvement and the new lock feature I great.
    Most happy with the new Design.
