Voopoo Drag 2 Kit
- Power mode sub menu: M (Custom mode), SN (serial number), VER (firmware version)
- TC sub menu: M (Custom mode),-set (sets resistance), F (sets TCR)
The menu system takes some time to get used to, but I wouldnt call it complicated. The mod adjusts in 1-watt increments, but doesnt accelerate and also doesnt round-robin. It is pretty fast though.
The GENE chip is known for its power mode performance and accuracy, and the Drag 2 is excellent in that regard. Temperature control, on the other hand, is meh. As with the original Drag, I found it to have excellent dry hit protection and more or less accurate temperatures overall, but a proprietary TCR numbering and, more importantly, the 80-watt limit in TC are major drawbacks. If you are thinking on using the Drag 2 for temperature control vaping with exotic coils, then you will probably be disappointed. It is fine for MTL style coils though, as you will not need the extra wattage and the default TCR works for stainless steel.
The mod also features FIT mode, which comes with three presets: FIT1 (battery), FIT2 (flavor) and FIT3 (clouds). After playing with it for a while, I believe that the only thing it does is read the resistance and set the wattage accordingly, with FIT1 being low wattage, FIT2 medium and FIT3 high. Voopoo recommends using FIT mode on the Uforce tanks, but trying it on the included coils of the Uforce T2 tank I got an underwhelming vape. They also say that the mode does not apply to rebuildables; I did try it on a 0.7-ohm MTL coil, and I found that it fired significantly higher than what I would like it to. In my opinion, the mode is the definition of hit-or-miss and I found no real use for it.
The tank: Uforce T2
I love the looks of the Uforce T2, it adopts a kind of a minimal design that makes it look more professional than your average sub ohm tank. It is around 25 mm at its base, with the bubble glass giving it an extra 3 mm. Putting it next to the T1, I could only see some minor differences. The three airflow slots are slightly larger, and the knurling has been replaced by some carved geometrical shapes, which look much better in my opinion. On top of that, the 5 mL bubble glass looks like a really nice fit, which is something that cant be said for all sub ohm tanks out there. Capacity falls to 3.5 mL with the straight glass on, but the tank is also compatible with the rest of the Uforce glass tanks that range from 2 to 8 mL.
The tank features a push-to-fill port thats a tad small; I had to tilt the bottle at an angle to fill it. The drip tip is 810 but the double O-rings kind, and the tank is not compatible with most Goon style 810s. I dont understand this design choice I have only a couple of these drip tips and tens of Goon style ones, and I am pretty sure thats the case with many vapers out there.
- U2 dual-parallel 0.4-ohm coil rated for 40-80 watts / best: 55-65 watts (included)
- N3 triple-mesh 0.2-ohm coil rated for 65-100 watts / best: 75-85 watts (included)
- Compatible with U2/U4/U6/U8/N1/N2/N3/R2/D4 coils
There is also a rebuildable coil (R1) but I think Voopoo stopped producing it as it was out of stock everywhere I checked.
The airflow of the Uforce T2 is much more restricted than the three airflow slots will have you believe. Fully open it compares to the Freemax Mesh Pro with its airflow less than halfway open. For me thats the perfect amount of airflow, but if you like a super airy direct lung draw you might want to look elsewhere.
The triple-mesh coil produces really good flavor and dense vapor. Voopoo nailed the wattage recommendation, as I found it performed better when fired at around 75-80 watts. It also wicks really well, although it started to struggle a bit over 90 watts with my high-VG juice. Dont forget to prime it before use; there is a lot of cotton between the three mesh strips and it will take a while for e-juice to reach this area if not primed properly. There was also no spitback or gurgling, and the tank didnt leak at all even when left open overnight.
The dual-parallel coil was a bit of a throwback, but it remains an excellent mid-wattage coil. Real good flavor and a solid option for using the Uforce T2 with a single-battery mod; as with the other coil, Voopoo is accurately recommending the 55-65 watt range. Outside of that, Id stick to the triple-mesh coil as it is a better performer overall and will last you a fair bit longer.
