VooPoo Drag Mini versus the VooPoo Drag 2 – Starter Kit Comparison

Let’s compare the Box Mod Devices…

The new VooPoo Drag Mini and the VooPoo Drag 2 come standard in starter kit packages both with a 5ml capacity VooPoo Uforce T2 tank with a N1 and a P2 single mesh type coil that tends to produce the most flavour out of your preferred vape juice.
An exotic appearance and exquisite structure adorns the UFORCE T2 that looks almost similar mechanical design of a TRANSFORMER. Equipped with P2 (U2 instead for TPD) and N1 coils, the DRAG mini kit is remarkable for its acceleration power and the rich flavors it produces.

VooPoo Drag Mini vs. VooPoo Drag 2
The devices, as you can see in the images below, they look kind of similar.
The Drag Mini is completely sealed while the VooPoo Drag 2 comes with a DRAG branded magnetized removable cover for ease of access to the batteries.
VooPoo’s design on both mod’s has kept them looking almost identical on the outside with the VooPoo Mini reassembling a scaled down version of the VooPoo 2, a concept that seems to favour and possibly create and avail itself to a perfect “his and hers” option.
Both VooPoo variants are available in a variety of resin options with 8 colour pallets each for the respective Drag 2 and Mini variants having Uniquely Visual Resin Accents that adorning the VooPoo Drag 2……

VooPoo have really produced two exceptional premium devices, they are well put together, and both look and feel great. VooPoo’s typical design on both mod’s has them looking almost identical from the outside with the VooPoo Mini reassembling a scaled down version of the VooPoo 2, this similar dual box mod concept actually produces an almost positive “his and hers” appeal.
A quick visual comparison?
The VooPoo Drag 2 is now the new flagship device.
The VooPoo Drag 2 can be classified as a decent when used with the original supplied tank fitted with P2 mesh coil, I am still using the original installed first coil for just over two weeks of testing now.
I really like the feel of and the way they look. I have mainly been using the VooPoo Drag 2 over the last couple of weeks. I have found the performance to be consistent and perfect as can be expect with the use of the “GENE.FIT” chipset.
The previous VooPoo Drag design has definitely been aesthetically improved on with the smoothed down refined finish.
The new VooPoo Mods is around 30% lighter, less angular and smoother than the original VooPoo DRAG.
Functional OLED display Panel above looks better and also uses less power to operate.
The VooPoo Drag 2 operates exceptionally well with all the RTA’s, sub ohm tanks, RDA’s and RDTA’s, delivering kick ass performance throughout the varying wattage ranges that were tried.
The original VooPoo Drag Box Mod actually performed just as well if not better than the VooPoo Drag 2, in the authors view anyone considering purchasing the new VooPoo Drag 2 is basically paying a lot more for the new design accents and a better refinement.
The current price of the VooPoo Drag 2 puts it out of the reach of entry level vapers, because of this I would rather recommend the original VooPoo Drag as it is available at about 50% of the current VooPoo Drag 2 price.
It’s a smaller device that can perform at up to 117Watts. Unfortunately running the device at 117Watts will definitely greatly reduce the expected battery life. I found that when using the VooPoo Drag Mini between 40 to 50Watts the battery life was comparable to the VooPoo Drag 2 that operates with two 18650 battery cells.
With the VooPoo Drag Mini I found that it worked best with MTL and also single coil RTA atomizer. Using these types of tanks on the VooPoo Drag Mini will definitely conserve at keep battery life at an acceptable level.
Thanks to the GENE chipset the VooPoo Drag Mini can also perform well at higher wattages at the expense of battery life, unfortunately this becomes a part of life when choosing to buy and use any mod with a non-removable battery.
My only concern with the VooPoo Mini is that It is not fitted with the most recent USB Type C technology, has no Quick Charge facility available and uses standard USB charging that can normally take anything between 90 to 100 minutes. If a quick charge facility was fitted to the VooPoo Drag Mini it would have been able to charge from flat to full in just over 35 to 45 minutes.)
Best Atomizer’s To Use on the VooPoo Drag Mini?
Tanks that can operate at lower wattages as well as any single coil RTA’s or low powered MTL atomizer were found to be suitable alternatives.
You will have no problems with battery life when running the lower wattage single coil RTA or a low powered MTL atomizer’s on the VooPoo Drag Mini.
I have also been using the Vapefly Galaxies MTL RTA on mine, running this set up at around 16Watts the VooPoo Mini gets an average of two days of battery life.
Vapers that prefer to vape between the 80 to 100W range will definitely find the VooPoo Drag 2 their go to VooPoo Box Mod of choice.
When all is said and done!
The new VooPoo derivatives are equally good and have been supplied to suit the varying and respective styles of vaping.
If you prefer to do high-powered vaping then the VooPoo Drag 2 is the choice that will satisfy you more with its longer battery life (Drag 2 Runs on 2x 18650 Batteries) and is better suited for performance type vape tanks.
The slightly smaller VooPoo Drag Mini is less powerful, and is designed for use with certain types of atomizer’s that can run at lower wattage ranges the VooPoo Mini is specifically suited too single coil RTAs and suitable MTL atomizer’s.
Both of the new VooPoo derivatives are great options depending on the type of vaper you prefer to experience.
