Voopoo’s winning combination of high-end technology and low-end pricing has made it one of the darlings of the vaping community. Browse any e-cigarette discussion board such as Reddit, and you’re going to find plenty of people speaking highly of Voopoo’s products. When the tastes of the vaping industry began to shift toward small pod vaping systems over the past year or so, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before Voopoo had a chip in the pod vaping game. With the Voopoo Drag Nano, they’ve finally done it. The Voopoo Drag Nano brings the company’s great technologies to the pod vaping arena. It’s safe to say that this product was worth the wait – and honestly, we’re quite amazed by the fact that you can make it your own for less than $25. How the vaping industry has changed!
What Is the Voopoo Drag Nano?
For the initiated, the Voopoo Drag Nano is a pod vaping system featuring Voopoo’s famous Gene chip. For the uninitiated, you can essentially think of the Drag Nano as one of the smallest box mods ever.
The mouthpiece of the Voopoo Drag Nano doubles as its e-liquid storage and atomizer coil. Pulling the mouthpiece out of the device reveals the entire pod assembly. You’ll fill the pod through the hole under the removable mouthpiece, and when the flavor quality begins to degrade, you’ll throw the entire pod away and replace it with a new one. Immediately, you’ll have the same vaping experience that you did when the device was new.
The Voopoo Drag Nano even features a clever timing mechanism to ensure that you’ve given the cotton wick enough time to soak up your e-liquid. After you install a new pod, the Drag Nano begins a five-minute timer. The device’s indicator light flashes when the new pod is ready to use.

First Impressions: Fit and Finish
When you open the box and see the Voopoo Drag Nano for the first time, it becomes quite obvious that Voopoo put a lot of R&D effort into this device. There are plenty of attractive vaping devices on the market, but there aren’t many with the same level of understated elegance as this device – and that’s before you even consider the fact that the Drag Nano costs under $25. When you consider the type of vaping device that you can buy for that price today compared to what $25 would get you just a few years ago, it’s truly mind blowing. Voopoo kept the price down for this device by using resin for the decorative side panels. The resin adds a welcome dash of color without being loud and overbearing, as is sometimes the case with resin mods.
The second impression, of course, is how incredibly small and light this device is. You can wear it around your neck and hardly notice the added weight. In fact, some versions of the Voopoo Drag Nano include necklaces for exactly that purpose. The “Fan’s Version” of the device including the necklace does cost a bit more, though, so don’t bother with it unless you do plan to wear the device.
Using the Voopoo Drag Nano
It’s time to get into the details of our Voopoo Drag Nano review. What’s it like to actually use the device? Let’s learn more.
Filling the Pod
With a wider filling hole than most pod systems, it’s quite easy to get e-liquid into the Voopoo Drag Nano’s pod even if you don’t have a needle-tip bottle. Simply remove the mouthpiece from the pod to expose the filling hole. Add e-liquid and reinstall the pod. If you’re using a new pod for the first time, wait five minutes for the device’s indicator light to flash before you begin vaping.
Voopoo’s Cold Boot Feature
The Voopoo Drag Nano is a draw-activated device that generates vapor automatically when you puff. With most automatic devices, there’s a slight delay before the device actually begins to produce vapor. You won’t experience that with the Voopoo Drag Nano, thanks to the Gene Pod chip. This device is extremely quick to generate vapor, owing in part to Voopoo’s new Cold Boot feature. If you haven’t used the device in a while, the Gene Pod chip assumes that your coil is completely cold and gives it a bit of extra power to kickstart the vapor production.
Getting the Best Experience With the Voopoo Drag Nano
The Voopoo Drag Nano is going to give you the best possible experience if you’re a mouth-to-lung vaper who likes throat hit and prefers higher-nicotine e-liquids. Nicotine salt e-liquid works best. If you’re new to nicotine salts, note that most nicotine salt e-liquids come in lower (20-25 mg) and higher (40-50 mg) nicotine strengths. If you’re currently a smoker and are about to try vaping for the first time, use a higher-strength e-liquid. Use a lower-strength e-liquid if you’re already a full-time vaper.
Remember that, even with a lower-output vaping device like the Voopoo Drag Nano, coil gunk will be a problem if you use sweetened e-liquids. To ensure that your pods will last as long as possible, avoid using e-liquids sweetened with sucralose.
Voopoo Drag Nano Review: The Bottom Line
With its winning combination of good looks, an appealingly low price and Voopoo’s excellent Gene Pod chip, it’s indisputable that the Voopoo Drag Nano is one of the best pod vaping systems on the market. It’s easy enough for a beginner to use, but the vapor production is never going to let you down even if you’re an experienced vaper with extremely high standards for the responsiveness of your device.
