DRAG M100S Kit – First Impressions
Having tested VOOPOO mods in the past, I didn’t know what to expect from the DRAG M100S. However, I’m pleased to say it makes a great first impression.
I received the antique brass and padauk version, which has a beautiful brushed bronze appearance reminiscent of vintage mods. The wood grain panels provide an elegant accent. It’s easily one of the most aesthetically pleasing mods I’ve come across lately.
The M100S feels solid and durable, though there is some minor button rattle. The battery door opens conveniently with a small switch. VOOPOO has also toned down branding compared to the excessive “DRAG” logos of the past.
Aside from slight rattle, the DRAG M100S mod itself seems very well-made upon initial inspection. The classy yet striking visual design also stands out. I’m impressed so far with the quality and appearance.
DRAG M100S Mod – Build Quality and Design
The DRAG M100S has a sturdy yet compact feel in hand. It’s slightly larger than a single battery, measuring just big enough to house the 21700/20700/18650 cell. Although not the smallest single-battery mod, it remains lightweight and portable.
The circular fire button sits atop the mod with the bright color screen and adjustment buttons below. A lock slider provides easy on/off functionality. The screen is approximately 1″ and displays all info clearly.
The rounded, ergonomic shape is comfortable to grip without sharp edges. The centered 510 pin allows tanks up to 26mm to sit flush. I used the included 25.5mm UFORCE-L tank which pairs nicely.
There are 5 color options – 3 solids and 2 wood grain versions for a touch of class. My antique brass and padauk model is quite striking.
Overall the M100S has quality construction and design, though I did notice minor button rattle. It feels durable enough to withstand daily use and has an aesthetically pleasing look.
DRAG M100S Features and Functions
The DRAG M100S includes a variety of vaping modes. There are three power modes (RBA, Eco, and Smart) and four temperature control modes for nickel, titanium, SS316, and SS430. While some companies are moving away from TC, it’s nice VOOPOO still caters to TC vapers.
The standard RBA power mode provides complete wattage control. Eco aims to extend battery life by encouraging lower wattage, but doesn’t seem too useful. Smart mode restricts the wattage range based on coil resistance. More advanced modes like a preheat function or curve would be preferable to Eco/Smart.
The temp control modes cover the common wire types like SS316. It includes the essential TC options though Ni and Ti are less popular nowadays.
One of the best features is the side lock slider. It can lock adjustment buttons only, fully lock the device, or function as an on/off switch. This slider makes it easy to pocket your mod securely. More mods need to utilize a lock switch like this.
Overall the M100S covers the key functions like variable wattage and TC for stainless steel. The lock slider adds great convenience. Some modes could use modernizing but it includes the core settings most vapers will need.
Using the DRAG M100S Mod
The DRAG M100S mod has straightforward operation:
– Turn on/off: Click fire button 5 times
– Adjust wattage/temp: Use up/down buttons
– Enter menu: Hold up & down buttons
– Change temp units (TC mode): Fire + down button
– Adjust wattage (TC mode): Fire + up button
– Menu options: Mode selection, lock slider, puff counter, screen color
The large screen shows wattage, puff counter, battery percentage, timer, resistance, and voltage.
In the menu you can set the mode, program the lock slider function, reset puffs, and change the color theme.
It’s easy to use for basic power/temp adjustment. The menu provides access to customizable options like lock slider function and color themes without being overly complicated.
DRAG M100S – Power Mode Performance
I tested the DRAG M100S in power mode using Samsung 30T batteries. VOOPOO lists max outputs of 100W and 8.5V, but doesn’t specify amp limit.
In testing, it reached up to 94W with a 0.15 ohm coil, just shy of the 100W rating but close enough. I measured around 25A limit with the same coil. This suggests decent capability for a single battery mod, though I couldn’t confirm if it goes higher.
Checking volt limit, it reached 7.465V on a 0.6 ohm coil before hitting the wattage cap. This proves the boost circuit functions as intended.
Overall with resistances 0.15 ohm and up, performance is satisfactory. Power levels run slightly high (10-20%) which caters to vapers wanting a “hard hit”. I’d prefer complete accuracy.
One issue I encountered was the mod failing to read builds lower than 0.15 ohms accurately. Despite VOOPOO’s 0.05 ohm rating, it read my 0.1-0.12 ohm test builds incorrectly. This prevented full testing and means power performance fails testing.
Charging rate is listed as 5V/2.5A. 2A or above is ideal, but external charging is always preferable. Passthrough vaping while charging is not supported.
Due to the low resistance reading issues, I cannot recommend the DRAG M100S for builds below 0.15 ohm. Performance from 0.15-0.3 ohms is decent but has some inconsistencies.
DRAG M100S – Temperature Control Performance
I tested the DRAG M100S in temperature control mode using SS316 wire builds. Unfortunately, performance was very inconsistent and disappointing.
At a 60W power setting on an SS316 coil, the mod struggled to properly power the coil and produce satisfying vapor production. The output was very pulsey rather than smooth.
Although the device claims to support up to 80W in TC mode, in testing it only reached around 58W and fluctuated up and down. This results in a poor vaping experience.
It’s possible the issues I saw in TC are related to the same problem of inaccurate low resistance reading that affected power mode. In any case, TC performance fails testing criteria.
Based on my testing with SS316, I cannot recommend the DRAG M100S for temperature control vaping. It lacks the smooth, consistent power delivery needed for a good TC vape. This aspect needs improvement on VOOPOO’s part.
DRAG M100S Kit – Pros and Cons
– Solid build quality and durability
– Compact size for single 21700/20700 mod
– Comfortable hand feel
– Elegant wood grain panels (wood versions)
– Large bright color screen
– 94W max wattage (rated 100W)
– Lock slider for ease of use
– Customizable color themes
– Quality battery door design
– Stunning visual aesthetics (antique brass & padauk)
– Lacks preheat & watt curve modes
– Some unnecessary vape modes
– No passthrough vaping while charging
– Inaccurate power performance
– Poor temp control performance
– Failed testing benchmarks
The DRAG M100S is beautifully designed and feels well-constructed. The screen, lock slider, and customization options add convenience. However, performance issues in power and TC mode outweigh the pros. Key improvements to the chipset and capabilities are needed.
DRAG M100S Review Verdict
The DRAG M100S is an undeniably sleek and aesthetically pleasing mod. However, performance is a key aspect for vape devices, and the M100S falls short in my testing.
The inaccurate low resistance readings and subsequent power and temp control issues are significant problems. It could be an isolated flaw in the unit I received, but either way, it failed my benchmark testing.
Most sub-ohm tanks have coil resistances higher than 0.15 ohms where issues may not be noticeable. Still, performance testing is paramount, and the M100S earns a failing grade.
Looks alone don’t make a great mod. Smooth, accurate and consistent output is crucial. Perhaps with a chipset upgrade, the M100S could better realize its potential. But as reviewed, I cannot recommend it due to the performance deficiencies identified.
