VooPoo Drag Baby Trio
VooPoo has been on a roll recently with the releases of their devices. The latest to enter the fold, and become part of the ‘Drag’ family is the VooPoo Drag Baby Trio.
It’s a versatile all-in-one vaping device designed to deliver both a mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung vape experience.
The Baby Trio doesn’t possess all the advanced features of other devices in the Drag family, but it’s still powered by a Gene chip, just a more stripped back version.
It also works with VooPoo latest plug-and-play (PnP) coil-heads for extra convenience and reliable performance.
The VooPoo Drag Baby Trio has a stainless steel body and a resin panel which comes in; Ceylon Yellow, Teal Blue, Fiesta, Aurora, Ultra Violet, Ink or Rhodonite.
Cute design, good build quality, excellent battery life, good flavor from both coils.
Proprietary tank connection, no adjustable airflow.
The Bottom Line
The Drag Baby Trio is quite a quaint little kit that delivers good performance from the PnP coils. It has excellent battery life and good build quality. However, it would’ve been even better if it offered adjustable airflow – still it’s a solid little portable kit.

I know this device is named ‘Baby,’ but after seeing several pictures before getting my hands on the device, I was still shocked at how small the Baby Trio actually is.
The Voopoo Drag Baby Trio measures in at 58.5mm x 35mm x 21.5mm and it’s a small tank is only 43mm tall (including the drip tip) tall with an 18.5mm in diameter.
It’s also has a nice balanced weight to it as it’s made out of a light aluminium alloy and stainless steel.
Although the ‘Baby Trio’ goes fits into the Drag range, it’s not a replica in style of any of the previous devices (like the Drag Nano). Yet, it still manages to keep that VooPoo vibe with its resin side panel and bold ‘Drag’ logo – it’s an overall mix of both style and simplicity.
The resin panel is the main part of the device that gives it it’s style, without the resin it would be quite a plain metallic box. VooPoo has also been quite generous when it comes to resin color options, with seven different resin patterns to choose from.
Another noticeable thing that sets it apart in the looks department is unlike all the other recent pod systems, the Baby Trio is a box mod with a removable tank.
The tank itself is also quite a simple affair. It only has a 1.8ml capacity, has non-adjustable airflow, and a non-removable drip tip. It does, however, use VooPoo’s plug-and-play-coil heads and can potentially offer both a DTL or MTL vape (more on this later).
The VooPoo Drag Baby Trio device and tank have proprietary connections to keep the size down to a minimum. While it does keep the whole thing looking good together as a kit, it’s a bit of a shame you can’t use your own tank on the small battery mod.
The Drag Baby Trio features VooPoo’s new stripped back version of the Gene Chip, called the Gene.Trio.
What this chip actually offers is somewhat unclear, as it’s such a simple device. Yet it does seem to fire rapidly enough and provides all the safety protection you’d expect from a decent chipset.
The VooPoo Baby Trio has one simple fire button and is manually activated. On the same side as the fire button, you have a small LED indicator light and a micro USB port for charging.
It features 1A charging and can charge it’s built-in 1500mAh battery in 1.5 hours.
Is as simple as it gets, with 5 clicks of the fire button to switch the device on or off. There are no adjustment settings, it’s just pressing the fire button to vape. The battery status of the device will be shown by the color of the small LED light:
- Green = > 60%
- Blue = 60-20%
- Red = < 20%
Simplicity is key when it comes to the VooPoo Drag Baby Trio kit, and even more so when it comes to the Baby Tank.
It has a 1.8ml capacity and a non-removable drip tip, although it is quite a comfortable mouthpiece to use.
The tank doesn’t have the typical 510 connection at the base. Instead, it has a more substantial thread that connects to the device, which in turn leaves the bottom of the coil to make the connection itself.
The tank, while small is robust in build with a Stainless Steel finish, all of the threading is nice and smooth.
To refill the Baby Tank you need to unscrew the top cap anti-clockwise, which will then reveal two small filling holes with small silicone gaskets, which can easily fit most bottle tips.
Once complete, Screw the top cap back on clockwise and leave for 5-10mins to allow the coils to saturate.
The Baby tank utilizes VooPoo’s ‘Push-Fit’ Coils, of which there are three different types available – see below.
The Baby Trio can use any of VooPoo PnP coils, with three different types on offer:
- PnP-M2 (0.6ohm DTL Mesh coil)
- PnP-C1 (1.2ohm MTL Ceramic coil)
- PnP-R1 (0.8ohm MTL Regular Coil)
There are two included in the kit, below are my thoughts on using each coil with the kit:
Direct to Lung (DL Coil – 0.6ohm)
The direct to lung coil provides great overall flavor, it’s draw is a little restrictive, but that is to be expected from such small airflow holes and tank size. If you regularly chain vape, you may notice some gargling or spit back.
Mouth to Lung (MTL Coil – 1.2ohm)
A nice and restrictive draw, but some might find it a looser MTL draw. Worked well with 60/40 juice and long draws without any dry hits whatsoever. The flavor is excellent, and it delivers a defined throat hit but only with very high nic juices – overall a solid MTL coil.
The Drag Baby Trio performs really well as a kit, in fact almost identical in performance to the VooPoo Find S Trio.
That’s actually no surprise as they both use the exact same coils, and neither offers adjustable airflow.
The 0.6-ohm mesh coil (PnP-M2) delivers a slightly restricted DTL vape, while the 1.2-ohm ceramic coil (PnP-C1) gives quite a loose MTL vape.
The flavor is very good with both coils, with the mesh coil maybe edging it slightly, due to a higher vapor temperature. It is, of course, the better for vapor production.
While the ceramic coil does deliver excellent flavor, it is a cooler vape due to the ceramic material, which also leaves it a little lacking on producing a defined throat hit. I usually run 12mg when I’m vaping at 1.2-ohm’s on pod systems, but found I had to up the nic level to 14/15mg to get the same type of throat hit.
One huge omission that would’ve helped is the ability to adjust the airflow and have an even tighter draw. I get that it may have been challenging to have adjustable airflow with these PnP coils, but having a tank with non-adjustable airflow just doesn’t make sense to me. Even if you were only able to adjust it slightly, I think it would’ve significantly improved the overall experience and given vapers a more tailored vape, especially when it comes to MTL.
Using either of the coils on the VooPoo Drag Baby Trio should easily be able to get you through a day’s vaping, which is very good. You could even stretch that to nearly two days with the 1.2-ohm ceramic coil.
Including a 1500mAh battery with such a small kit was an excellent move. Even though it does charge quite fast with 1A, I still would’ve liked to have seen 2A charging.
That being said, the device and battery are solid performers which will see you through a whole day vaping with ease.
- Good build quality

- Slightly restrictive DTL Vape
- Proprietary tank connection
The VooPoo Drag Baby Trio is a very solid kit with very few flaws.
When it comes to performance, there really is no difference between Baby Trio and the VooPoo Find S Trio, other than an extra 300mAh battery capacity. They both use the same Gene chip and deliver the same type of vape, it’s just one is a plastic pod-style and the other a small more premium metallic kit.
In comparison to other small, versatile kits on the market, the Drag Baby Trio will certainly hold it’s own. It’s just a shame they didn’t add adjustable airflow to really push it that little bit further.
