User experience with VOOPOO Argus GT II kit
MAAT TANK NEW
1. The setting of the vaping resistance and the air intake is perfect, and the airflow in the large space is concentrated while soft.
At the same time, the crater-shaped sealing design prevents e-juice leakage; the vape juice is filled at the top screw cap; and there are airway adjustment knob and the removable Pyrex glass e-liquid cup. It’s definite a comprehensive design.
2. The Dual In One Tech 2.0 mesh coils bring fuller, more delicate and multi-layered clouds. Meanwhile, the technique prolongs the life of coil while optimizing the working temperature. Moreover, it’s leakage-proof.
The overall feeling will subvert my previous understanding of the VOOPOO series coils. The taste experience and the flavor reduction degree of the e-liquid are relatively mellow and rich, and the cloud is relatively moist, which is in a very comfortable state. I think the GENE TT.2.0 chip that automatically matches the power and juice amount helps make it happen. It’s indeed another new breakthrough in the vaping industry.
3. The 6.5ml tank capacity is very satisfactory.
The vapor from the airway is relatively limited, and sometimes it feels a little tight, and the e-liquid with high sweetness will come with a serious sweetness.
ARGUS GT II device
1. The waterproof level of IP68 is undoubtedly one of the selling points of this device, and the protection level can be called the ceiling level on market.
2. In terms of functions, everything is readily available, which can easily meet the needs of most vapers.
3. The hidden 3A TYPE-C fast charging interface makes the device look better and work more efficiently for frequent use.
1. The combination of leather and device parts is not very reasonable. I personally think it is not very beautiful. Although the texture is really good, the sense of matching is ordinary.
2. The grip is relatively general, and the feeling of holding it in the hand lacks some ergonomic design for me. Maybe it’s designed for European or American only.
Voopoo Argus GT II kit overall experience is quite good. The e-liquid vaping performance is excellent.
And the waterproof, dustproof and shockproof IP68 protection level makes it very suitable for outdoor use like camping and hiking.
Meanwhile, the material of the box mod is top-notched and premium. Compared to the similar Geekvape AEGIS L200, Voopoo Argus GT II is more delicate and more advanced.
Though the grip of Argus GT II is not really user-friendly for long time use, it can still be regarded as one of the best mod products of the same level.

Strong power, VOOPOO Argus GT II was shocked to market
VOOPOO, an internationally renowned e-cigarette brand, previously revealed that its high-end series Argus will release a new mod product. On April 11th, VOOPOO announced its product details on its brand’s official website, and this highly watched product was finally unveiled.
For ultimate performance
Argus series is impressive because it continues to break mediocrity and creates the most professional classic equipment for vapers. Argus GT II not only ensures a comfortable grip, but also has a luxurious visual experience by using the industry’s innovative and ingenious metal body and exquisitely carved leather texture. At the moment of pressing the fire button, cloud booms like a volcanic eruption, bringing ultimate taste enjoyment and visual impact. Compared with the first generation products, its maximum power has been greatly improved to reach 200W high-power with constant voltage and stable output.
As a high-end product focused on people who pursue big vapor, high explosion, high quality, high performance and durability, ARGUS GT Ⅱ adopts the industry-leading high-strength metal shell. After thousands of tests, the team of VOOPOO have created a strong double-layer waterproof, dust-proof, antifreeze and anti-collision multiple safety protection mod device, which easily deals with various extreme outdoor environments and it is as hard and durable as volcanic rock.
Enhance the taste experience
As one of the most anticipated products, Argus GT II did not disappoint vapers.The MAAT TANK NEW is designed in the unique volcano crater structure which drains the condensate down and isolates it at the bottom. So as to better prevent the condensate from seeping into the mod device under different holding angles during use, it creates a new oil leakage proof experience for users.The two-way airway like volcano makes deep lung puffing more labor-saving, so that the direct air flow rate can be increased by 60%.The vapor outbreak is faster and more direct, and the utilization rate of e-liquid can be effectively improved. The bottom electrode POGO PIN design effectively reduces the contact impedance.
Taste experience has always been the most concerned topic for vapers. The newly released Argus GT II is equipped with TPP atomization platform, which not only brings a greater vapor experience, but also effectively maintains a strong taste. In addition, Argus GT II is equipped with two dedicated coils, which atomizes more delicately and fully for a multi-layered taste. Thus, users can enjoy the surging clouds and rich tastes.

French president Macron holding a vape from Voopoo?
Recently, French President Emmanuel Macron released an office photo taken by an official photographer. In the picture, Macron is holding a stack of documents in his left hand, and his right hand is holding an electronic cigarette device unabashedly. According to French media reports, Macron used to have the habit of smoking cigars occasionally, and now he has become an e-cigarette user.
In fact, Macron’s turnaround is not unexpected. Because in Europe, more and more consumers have adopted electronic cigarettes as a tool to reduce the harm of cigarettes. Just earlier this month, 16 French doctors, researchers and medical professors publicly called on the government to support e-cigarettes.
On February 16, the European Parliament passed a report on cancer prevention and treatment with 652 votes in favor and 15 votes against, which recognized vaping products, heat-not-burn products and novel tobaccos’s potential contributions to smoking cessation. The report pointed out that e-cigarettes can allow some smokers to gradually quit smoking.
So, which device is French President Emmanuel Macron using?
To this end, we have verified with many senior e-cigarette users around us, and everyone unanimously gave the answer of “DRAG S of VOOPOO”. Compared with the official pictures of DRAG S, many features are indeed very consistent. According to the communication with the French team in front of Voopoo Technology, we believe that this product is undoubtedly VOOPOO DRAG S.
In fact, DRAG S is 100% made in China and produced by Voopoo Technology, a benchmark enterprise of vapes.
The core of why DRAG S can be greatly recognized in the European market lies in its excellent product strength. Compared with similar products, its size is smaller, but the output capability is stronger, and it can complete the heating in just one thousandth of a second, which greatly changes the previous user’s “heat first, then use” operating habit. On the other hand, its built-in Gene TT chip also endows the DRAG S with many intelligences, such as puff count recording, power switching, and mode scoring.
It is understood that as a vape brand with a high reputation in overseas markets, VOOPOO products already have more than 30 million fans overseas.
At present, VOOPOO mainly has four series of products, namely ARGUS, DRAG, VINCI and V. In this regard, Everest, the CEO of Voopoo Technology, emphasized that “every generation of VOOPOO products is creating unique product points, and directly or indirectly leading the innovation and change of the industry.” This is why VOOPOO can rank among the first echelon of the industry in 2019 , because “innovation is Voopoo’s constant gene”.
In fact, Macron’s choice of DRAG S is not VOOPOO’s good luck, but a necessity.
Innovation The Key to VOOPOO ‘s Leapfrog Development
SHENZHEN, China — VOOPOO, a leading vape manufacturer, recently released a review on its development, revealing the underlying driving force of its success against the market backdrop of complicated international relationships, rising operation cost, intensifying competition, and product similarity – the four major innovation models, namely technological innovation to provide long-term momentum, system innovation to ensure lasting vitality, operating innovation to expand company footprint, and product innovation to increase market share.
Innovation Model 1 – Technological innovation to provide long-term momentum
“Long-term investment in technological innovation should be planned in a long-term manner. We must dare to embrace uncertainty and strengthen cooperation with partners to truly realize the integration from technology to products”
Technological innovation, as the foundation, provides a steady impetus for development. VOOPOO has established the strategic concept of investing in technological innovation and developing leading and original technologies.
In 2017, VOOPOO creatively developed the GENE series chips, and collaborated with DRAG to set the world record for fastest ignition speed at that time. Products were loved by more than 4 million users around the world, and are still regarded as an industry icon. In 2019, the innovative size-compatible VINCI became a new trend in Mod Pod. In 2020, DRAG X/S became one of the best-sellers in the world with its super performance and innovative metal-leather design. In 2021, VOOPOO innovatively explored the PNP/TPP/ITO vape platforms, starting to set the new technical standards in the industry.
It is with in-depth research and systematic control of market segments, keen focus on products and technologies, the pioneering and innovative spirit, and the belief in technological innovation, that VOOPOO has proceeded forward in the global market and won the trust of global users.
Since scientific and technological innovation is the primary productive force of an enterprise and the only way to achieve a global leading position, VOOPOO has set up the global innovation center with more than 500 R&D technicians working on projects at the same time. VOOPOO’s innovation model will bring the company more technological breakthroughs and promote the implementation and development of its global strategy.
Innovation Model 2 – System innovation to ensure lasting vitality
System innovation, as the soul, builds an open innovation platform, forms a sound structure from the entire group to each business department, and creates a high-value model for enterprise development. VOOPOO implements a four-level R&D system from research to product development: an innovative platform model integrating research institute, PhD researchers, expert consultants, and innovation projects covering multiple fields such as basic research, new materials, innovative atomization, HNB technology, intelligent manufacturing and modern logistics.
As of 2022, VOOPOO has applied for more than 1,000 cases of intellectual property, and has 3 R&D centers around the world covering basic research, vaping innovation, chip technology, and life science. In addition, VOOPOO has built 6 manufacturing and processing centers which are in line with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), covering a total area of 120,000 square meters. At the same time, VOOPOO also cooperates with many universities on innovative materials to build a forward-looking R&D system integrating production, academy and research.
In order to protect independent intellectual property rights and also stimulate creativity, VOOPOO has established a global, full-service, full-process intellectual property management system. In view of the increasing number of competitors and competitive products as well as the rampant counterfeiting, VOOPOO has applied for nearly 600 trademarks around the world, and registered defensive trademarks at the same time to prevent preemptive registration of the same or similar trademarks by third parties, so as to avoid “free riders”, thereby defending the company’s brand and reputation.
In March 2022, VOOPOO’s core trademark was included in the “2021 Guangdong Provincial Key Trademark Protection List”. It is worth noting that among the 580 trademarks on the list, only 3 are from the vaping industry.
In addition, in order to promote compliance and standardization in the global market, VOOPOO implemented the compliance strategy and set up the global compliance department early in 2019. VOOPOO was also deeply engaged in the compilation of China’s GB standard, and has submitted the American PMTA (VOOPOO is among the first batch of PMTA applicants) and involved in the European TPD3 standards.
Innovation Model 3 – Operating innovation to expand company footprint
Operating innovation, as the effective means, enables the company to be open-minded, share resources, build industrial chains, and achieve further growth.
In the Era 1.0 of operation, the upstream is about production, the midstream is about marketing, and the downstream is about channels. They are clearly distinctive to each other and each part can profit greatly. In the Era 2.0, upstream, midstream and downstream obviously become inseparable. Production, marketing and channels are closely intertwined. The ecology of the full industry chain reflects the current strategic demand of terminal consumption, channel distribution and transboundary cooperation.
Based on industry needs, VOOPOO has built the diversified strategic business structure to fully serve the needs of all parties. The company has formed a full industrial chain of vape integrating R&D, production, branding and channels, and has achieved differentiated, unique and irreproducible advantages through the integration of the industrial value chain.
At present, VOOPOO has established absolute market competitiveness on a global scale with more than 200 reserve products every year for different markets in the world. Within 3 years, it has established long-term cooperation relationships with partners in more than 70 countries and regions, and opened 6 overseas branches focusing on localized operations in the United States, UK, Indonesia, Canada and other countries. It has set up a network of 100,000 outlets around the world to shape its global brand influence.
Innovation Model 4 – Product innovation to increase market share
The VOOPOO-style innovation is ultimately product innovation, which further brings VOOPOO a more solid market position.
In the previous 2021 Ecigclick Vape Awards, VOOPOO won the Best Vape Kit For Beginners, the Best POD, the Best MOD, and the Best Sub Ohm Tank respectively with its four products ARGUS, DRAG Nano 2, DRAG 3, TPP-X. The awards reflected VOOPOO’s user-oriented consumer insights and diversified product innovation.
With the evolution of the market environment and technological innovation, users’ demands for vaping products are also constantly upgrading, and scenario-based, lightweight and multi-functional products are increasingly favored by the market. In view of this and driven by user value, VOOPOO decided to enter a new era by launching a portfolio comprising four core product series, DRAG, VINCI, ARGUS, and V, to provide users with more accurate product solutions and to continue to upgrade user experience and explore the global market.
Adhering to the four models, VOOPOO-style innovation has set a good example for the development of vaping companies.
In today’s fast-changing world, long-term thinking for the future is becoming more and more important. VOOPOO will continue to pursue the value guided by the long-term thinking. Confronted with the obstacles commonly shared by the industry, VOOPOO is taking a unique path of innovation development.
“Long-term investment in technological innovation should be planned in a long-term manner. We must dare to embrace uncertainty and strengthen cooperation with partners to truly realize the integration from technology to products,” noted EVEREST, Founder and CEO of VOOPOO.
VOOPOO firmly believes that good products are the foundation of the sustainable development of the industry. The company should be a friend of time and a pioneer of technology, and work with users and partners to jointly drive the sustainable development of the industry. The future will definitely belong to long-termism, and VOOPOO look forward to engaging more partners in its development.

According to official website display，the Vinci Pod Royal Edition with the new relief design language will shine on 5th January 2022. While emphasizing the retro appearance design, it also demonstrates a strong aristocratic atmosphere.
Craftsmanship and Relief process are first appeared on the body of Pod
From the site of the “Sumerian Civilization”, one of the birthplaces of human
civilization, a large number of high-quality relief art appeared. In contemporary times, there are also a large number of artistic competitions using relief technology.

However, it is not easy to put portrait delicate relief patterns on a tiny pod. A slight deviation in the manufacturing process will cause the product itself to fail to achieve the quality of art. From what we have known that six products of the series of VOOPOO Vinci Pod Royal Edition were designed by the experienced craftsmen. Furthermore, it also borrowed the design element of the retro jazz and cool graffiti. During the process of the product, it took eight months.

In addition to the unique shape characteristics of the relief itself, the tactile experience brought about by the relief itself is even more impressive. Because the design of each relief is slightly different, users can choose different patterns of products according to their visual preferences, but also according to the tactile preferences of different styles. The “tactile beauty” of relief is in the hand, to personally experience the shock of an artistic masterpiece, the product concave and convex process is very hierarchical, the user can enjoy the noble experience between the fingertips touch.
User-centered, taking into account the experience of using the product.
In addition to the design of product’s high quality , the material and experience of the product itself are more suitable for the user’s using habits.

It is worth noting that after 268 precise airflow adjustments, VINCI Pod Royal Edition optimized the design of the microphone head and airway, bringing unparalleled comfort to the mouth suction experience. Its ergonomically designed mouthpiece provides a better lip fit, and combined with the sensitive microphone’s automatic vaping mode, it instantly delivers a smoother and richer taste experience.
According to reports, this product from VOOPOO used a visual VINCI POD cartridge, allowing users to see on time that how much tobacco oil is left, so it is convenient for users to ration in time to relieve the feeling of the anxiety. VINCI Pod Royal Edition is also equipped with 0.8Ω and 1.2Ω atomizers, you can bring different levels of taste reduction and nicotine analysis experience according to your preferences. VINCI POD Royal Edition is also a perfect blend of breathing light and patch through a complex process.
