Voopoo is the go-to brand for most experienced vapers who are looking for a durable device. However, these mods can sometimes be a bit overwhelming for someone who is new to vaping and just getting started.
That being said, Voopoo has just released the Drag Mini Kit, a built-in battery mod targeted at beginner vapers. The Drag Mini features an impressive 4400mAh built in battery and comes in eight awesome colors. This kit also comes with the UFORCE T2 tank which is compatible with all ten Uforce coils.
In this review, I am going to go over everything you need to know about the Drag Mini Kit so that you can decide for yourself if this is the kit for you. Let’s jump right into it.
This kit was sent to us by Voopoo for review. This does not in any way affect our opinion or rating of the device.

Design and Build Quality — Drag Mini
As soon as I took the Drag Mini out of the box, I noticed how lightweight it was. Knowing there was already a pre-installed battery and the device was still lightweight was a great first impression.
The second thing I immediately noticed was how it perfectly fit in my hand. I didn’t feel those sharp edges that I had disliked with the original Drag. The edges on the entire device have been curved and smoothed out. I have to give Voopoo props for this one!
For this review, we received the Prussian Blue and Purple Resins to try. The design and color of the resin is very bold and beautiful. The resin covers the entire front panel, just leaving space for a Voopoo logo on the left side. And paired with the matching resin drip tip (which we will talk more about later) this kit is a beauty.
While testing out the Drag Mini I noticed that there was absolutely no paint chipping. This was a major flaw with the original Drag, which was an otherwise great mod, so I am happy to announce that they have fixed this issue. I’m sure with more time I will be able to know for sure if the paint is going to hold up, but so far so good.
On the opposite side of the mod, on the reverse panel, you will find a distinguished Drag logo. The word drag is very crisp and clean. It’s untextured and a little more dulled out than the original Voopoo Drag, but I actually prefer it this way. Both panels are completely attached to the mod and non removable.
On the side of the Drag Mini you will also find your firing button which is a little bit small, but nothing that would pose an issue. The button is very sturdy and has a nice clickiness to it. Underneath the firing button is the display screen. The screen has been raised to sit flush with the mod, which I find to look much cleaner. The only thing I noticed was that the screen was a little dark at times. But good news, I discovered that this can be adjusted with a firmware update. Is there anything Voopoo doesn’t think of?
Below the display screen you will find your two adjustment buttons. They are flat and rather small but work well and are not difficult to use. And finally underneath the adjustment buttons you will see a USB port for charging and firmware updates. As this is a built in battery mod you will have to charge the actual device using a charging cable. We’ll test charging times and battery life in the performance section.
The Drag Mini Kit features a 4400mAh built in battery. This makes it convenient for beginners as there is no need to buy batteries and a charger. This also makes it more affordable for someone just getting started.
Another noticeable change from the original Drag is that the Drag Mini Kit has a centered 510 connector pin. In my opinion, mods look a little silly with the 510 connector pin off to the side, and it absolutely looks more uniform on the Drag Mini. Again, props to Voopoo on this one.
The overall design of the mod is very sturdy and pleasant, and I can definitely see this being a very popular mod just based on looks alone. The feel in your hand is great, and the built-in battery is very large and super convenient. Voopoo are known for their awesome mods, and the Drag Mini is proving to be no different.

Design & Build Quality — Uforce T2 Sub-Ohm Tank
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 Mini. 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 accomodate 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 Mini Kit, you get two coils: one P2 0.60ohm single mesh coil, and one N1 0.13 single mesh coil. The P2 0.60ohm coil is a small single mesh coil, and is rated for 24-30W.
The N1 0.13ohm coil is a larger single mesh coil, and will deliver a warmer vapor with more massive flavor and clouds. This coil is rated for 50-100W, however Voopoo suggest a recommended range of 70-80W for optimal performance.
Features and Functions of the Drag Mini
The Drag Mini is powered by the new GENE FIT Chip, and will fire at up 117W. To turn the device on or off, press the fire button quickly five times.
You get a few different modes with the Drag Mini, and these are: Power, Temperature Control, and Memory Modes. By updating the software, you also get access TCR. In Power mode, the Drag Mini will fire at up to 117W. In TC, it will do your standard 200-600F.
But there is one more feature/mode on the Drag Mini that you may want to check out, and it’s called the FIT mode. There are three settings in FIT Mode, and each one will provide increasing power to your coil. There isn’t much information out there about this mode, but there are three settings:
FIT 1: Battery Saving Mode
FIT 2: Maximum Flavor Mode
FIT 3: Maximum Clouds Mode
FIT 1 will be a softer draw, while FIT 2 and FIT 3 will be a denser, hotter draw. However, I found that the same effect could be achieved by lowering or increasing the wattage. I could see how some people may like the ease of use of the FIT mode, as there isn’t a wattage setting to fiddle with. Thus while more advanced vaper may not see a use, beginners or those looking for something simple may really enjoy FIT mode.
Drag Mini 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.
As a whole, the Drag Mini Kit is a great performer. With the ability to fire at up to 117W, it’s a great mid-high wattage device that fires near instantly. The new GENE FIT chip powers this beast, and it performs great in terms of both efficiency and power delivery.
For this testing, I used the UFORCE T2 tank with both included coils at various wattages. I also used a few different RDAs with varying resistances and wattages as well.
With the UFORCE T2 tank using the P2, 0.60ohm coil, the Drag Mini delivered a very cool, and light vapor. Because of the resistance, the recommended wattage range for this coil is 24-30W, and so that was what I vaped at. The vapor wasn’t very dense, and so those seeking a dense hit will most likely not like this coil.
The N1 coil provided a much better experience for my style of vaping, and delivered a warm, dense, and flavorful draw. The 0.13ohm resistance is a little low, and so I had to have my wattage set at 75-80W. While this drained the battery considerably faster compared to using the P2 coil, it was definitely worth it. The single mesh is awesome, and the flavor you get out of your juices is really great. Plus, the fact that the UFORCE T2 is a sub-ohm tank that doesn’t leak is awesome.
Temperature control vaping was great with the Drag Mini, and delivered a pleasant, accurate experience. I found that it was very good and never gave me a dry or burnt hit.
The FIT Modes, as mentioned previously, regulate the power to your coil in increasing fashion. FIT 1 is a lighter draw, while FIT 3 is warmer and more dense. I found that lowering or upping the wattage would achieve a similar effect, but you may like the simplicity of the FIT modes. The fact that you can set it and forget it makes it great for new users.
The built-in 4400mAh battery on the Drag Mini is huge, and I found that it lasted me around two days of use without having the charge. This was when I was using it at mid to high wattages as well (70-100W), and so I would say that this is pretty great. Not having to worry about batteries is pretty awesome, especially since built-in battery mods are usually not the greatest. However, with the Drag Mini, it’s a solid device that is full featured and works great.
The charging times are also pretty good for the Drag Mini, and I found it charged in around 2-3 hours from dead. It’s great that you don’t have to purchase batteries or a charging bay if it’s your first device. You can simply plug it in, charge it, and you’re good to go. The built in battery protection and charging features mean that you don’t have to worry about charging either
When you take all of the factors into account such as design, build quality, performance, coils, and battery performance, what’s the verdict? The Drag Mini delivers a full featured and powerful mid-wattage device that is easy to use for beginners thanks to its built-in battery. Whether you use the included UFORCE T2 tank or an RDA, the performance of this mod is great in either Power or TC mode and fires near instantly.
Specifically speaking about the UFORCE T2 tank, it doesn’t leak and produces great flavor and clouds with the correct coil. And with the option of choosing from ten different UFORCE coils, you’ll definitely find one that you enjoy using.
So if you’re in the market for a new mod and tank, I would definitely check out the Drag Mini. It affords you all of the features of the Drag 2 at a lower output wattage, and saves you from having to purchase and charge external batteries.
Until next time, Stay Versed!
