The Argus GT II and UForce L sub-ohm tank are two relatively new products from VOOPOO that are now being paired together as a true sub-ohm kit.
The Argus GT II is a dual 18650 device that is IP68 rated. It features the GENE.TT 2.0 chipset and has a maximum power output of 200W.
It also has a range of firing modes and supports 3A USB-C charging.
The UForce L is a sub-ohm tank that utilizes VOPOO PNP coils. It comes with a 0.15Ω and 0.2Ω mesh coil in the kit.
It has a 4ml capacity with the regular tank but also comes with a 5.5ml bubble glass.
The UForce L also features a top fill system alongside top airflow with 3 large airflow slots and 360-degree airflow control.
The Argus GT II & UForce L kit will be available in 3 colors – Gunmetal, Silver, and Black.
Note: we have two separate colors for the review (Silver GT II & Black UForce L Tank)
- Classy design
- Robust IP68 rated

The Bottom Line
The Argus GT II and UFroce L tank are impressive products in their own right. However, paired together, they make one of the best sub-ohm kits available on the market. The GT II is easy to use and robust, with an IP68 rating. The UForce L delivers fantastic flavor from the coils with super smooth airflow – highly recommended.
Specs and Features
Design & Style
The Argus GT was a cracking-looking mod, and I’m pleased to say the GT II follows in its footsteps with a similar design. However, the most significant difference is that the updated version is made of zinc alloy instead of plastic, which gives it a far more premium feel.
It’s also slightly larger than its predecessor. However, that increase in size and use of heavier materials don’t affect it too much, as it’s still a very compact and lightweight device for a dual 18650 mod.
I also think the Zinc Alloy body gives it a great look, particularly in the Silver version we have for review. There’s a great balance between matte and glossy finish, with rubber accents around the frame adding to the overall aesthetic. Then there’s the unmistakable style grip VOOPOO is so fond of on their designs.
The grip on the GT II looks like wood, but it is just rubberized vinyl over a small amount of padded foam. It gives it a nice squishy feel and makes it extremely comfortable to hold.
On the top of the device is the 510 connector, but this time there is no 510 plate; it just sits naked on the top. Adjacent to the 510 connector is a protruding slider that covers the USB-C port.
I like that they’ve positioned it on the top and given it some good protection for the IP68 rating. However, it does make it a little awkward to use to charge the device in that position. Nevertheless, it’s best to always charge your 18650 externally from devices, so it hasn’t bothered me too much.
Speaking of batteries, the compartment for your two 18650s is on the base of the device. It features the usual push-and-slide catch with a spring-loaded door. Thankfully it releases easily and seems to fit into place perfectly with no rattle of excessive play.
On the front of the GT II mod, you have the fire button, adjustment buttons, a dedicated on/off switch, and the 0.96″ TFT color display. The display is the same style and layout we are accustomed to with VOOPOO, which is excellent.
All the buttons have good responsiveness to them, and I just love that we now get dedicated on/off switches. I also appreciate that they have put knurling on the switch, making it easy to quickly find and flip.
The Argus GT II is available just as a stand-alone mod. It also comes paired with either the MAAT Mesh sub-ohm tank or the new UForce L tank, which we have and will cover later in this review.
Overall when it comes to style and design of the Argus GT II mod. I have no complaints whatsoever. In fact, I love that VOOPOO has kept things similar to previous iterations, maintained that robust but classy look, but added just the right amount of tweaks to freshen things up.
The Argus GT II is a dual 18650 device with a maximum power output of 200W (which is slightly more than the previous version).
It is powered by VOOPOO’s latest GENE.TT 2.0 chipset, which offers a range of modes.
- Turbo mode
- Smart mode
- RBA mode
- TC modes for titanium, nickel, and stainless steel.
Unfortunately for TC lovers, they have omitted the TCR mode, so there’s no way to input your own TCR value for each material. I’m not sure if many vapers care for those TC modes nowadays; I know I don’t.
If you are unfamiliar with each of the firing modes above, I’ll give you a quick rundown.
Smart mode is the most user-friendly and essentially automatically sets the wattage for the coil you’re using but limits the wattage to prevent burnt coils etc.
RBA mode allows you to unlock the power and set the wattage to whatever you like, so it’s ideal for use with RTAs or if you are adventurous and want to crank up the power.
Turbo mode is similar to RBA mode but with a slight wattage boost.
Switching between modes is relatively easy. First, you hold down both +/- adjustment buttons until the power menu appears. You then navigate using the +/- buttons and select using the fire button.
The menu on the Argus GT II is more stripped back than some other VOOPOO devices. This makes it far less confusing, but it lacks some touches, like adjusting screen brightness or UI theme options that I would’ve liked to have seen.
It still has the option to clear your puff counter for those that use it.
The GT II also supports fast USB-C charging, with a charge rate of 3A. This is great, but I’d still advise you to charge your 18650s externally.
UForce L Tank
The UForce L tank is the latest sub-ohm tank from VOOPOO.
It has a 4mlk capacity when used with the regular tank or 5.5ml with the included bubble glass. In TPD areas, it will only come with a 2ml glass chamber.
The UForce L can be used with any other VOOPOO’s PNP coils. It comes with both the PNP TW15 mesh coil (0.15Ω) and the PNP TW20 mesh coil (0.2Ω) in the kit.
It is a top airflow tank with three large airflow slots and a 360-degree airflow ring, so you can truly tailor your airflow.
However, I will say the ring moves a little too freely on our review model. Hopefully, it will have a bit more restriction on production.
VOOPOO claims its hollow central structure absorbs sound with 25% improved coil heating efficiency.
This is not something I can disagree with because it has super smooth airflow and really delivers on the flavor with the mesh coils.
The UForce L also features a top-fill system, which can simply be removed with a quarter turn. This also means the tank is pretty much leak-resistant, having both top fill and top airflow.
The UFroce L comes with a removable 810 Delrin drip tip, which is perfectly comfortable for DTL vaping.
How To Fill the Tank
- Turn the top cap anti-clockwise to remove it
- Locate one of the two large fill ports
- Squeeze vape juice into the glass chamber through the fill port
- Replace the top cap, and a quarter turn clockwise will lock it
The performance of the Argus GT II is everything I expected. I’ve never had an issue with any previous Argus device, and GT II is just as reliable.
It’s effortless to use, all of the buttons function well, and the power delivery is almost instant. It also feels like it delivers accurate power when you crank it up to high wattages.
I know they included a Turbo mode, which possibly gives you a little more power. But honestly, it was negligible and not something I would use daily. I prefer to keep it in Smart or RBA mode; both work perfectly.
As for the UForce L Tank, I was pleasantly surprised by the performance.
It delivers fantastic flavor from both the TW15 and TW20 mesh coils, right up there with some of the best I’ve had from a sub-ohm tank.
The 0.15Ω TW15 is also incredibly airy, so you can really chuck out the clouds with it. This is further aided by the really open airflow of the UForce L.
The airflow is also amazingly smooth, with virtually no turbulence, making it a real treat to vape on.
The only slight caveat I have with the airflow is that minor adjustments go largely unnoticed as the airflow lots are pretty large. So it does take some dialling in to get to a restrictive DTL draw.
The tank is also extremely easy to use, with a simple top-fill system and no leaking whatsoever.
It’s definitely a step up from the MAAT tank. So if you can get the GT II paired with the UForce L tank, I’d say go for it – you won’t be disappointed.
The Argus GT II is an exceptional dual 18650 device.
It covers all the bases of having an attractive design, easy to use, being comfortable but robust, and delivering where it matters with performance.
The UForce L tank is the perfect match for the GT II.
It’s also mightily impressive with its performance, delivering fantastic flavor from the PNP mesh coils. In addition, it has super smooth airflow, a decent top-fill system, and is pretty much leak-resistant – what’s not to like?
If you are in the market for a dual battery setup with a sub-ohm tank. I don’t think you’ll find much better than the Argus GT II and U-Force L tank.
