Review of the compact kit VOOPOO Argus GT - consisting of a decent mod with type-with charging and with a popular, but brand-name surface + a slightly unusual maintenance-free tank with bottom airflow.
In many ways, my impressions of the set will be associated with the rather unfortunate option of choosing "appearance". I see there is something like suede in the “gray vintage” option and maybe there is much worse, but at the same time, the semblance to denim is in fashion, together with the moisture protection of the type-s port, together with a tank with bottom blowing and is clearly prone to leaks over time - a Darwin award to the author of such a cocktail!
Meanwhile, VOOPOO once delighted vapers with its bestseller in the form of Draga, and for some time the guys even managed to hold out at the expense of his fame, releasing all sorts of strange and uninteresting updates. Where there was the same format and the same payment, but cosmetic strange updates and sometimes 2 more prices from the sane. Then the guys began to release all sorts of podiks like everyone else, and only now it seems that something interesting and new has appeared. The VOOPOO Argus mod lacks stars from the skies for specifications, but raises from 0.1, works from 2 * 18 650, type-c charging again. And all this in a compact body and for little money.
For the first time, I just see the delivery of a vape device in a box that matches some kind of knife or military old man.
Non-maintenance, by the way, also raised a little questions - the reservoir with the cartridges is magnetically attached to the base. To refuel, you need to remove it and turn it over, then pull out the rubber plug and pour the liquid inside. Complete cartridges 0.15 and 0.20 for vaping somewhere at 50 + - watts and I think this is the optimal mode for this VOOPOO Argus.
After all, let's check out the dimensions of the VOOPOO Argus - next to me, from a recent review, it is in many ways similar to the FreeMax Maxus mod and it is somewhere 15-20% larger in all respects.
Another question is that I tried to use Argus (Argus? Agrus?) With other tanks and RDAs and step over the 100-watt threshold and the impressions were mixed. On the street there are still hot summer days and I quickly caught the overheating of the mod, which is ok with such a small size. But it also seemed to me all the time that 90 and 140 watts differ very little from him.
In terms of control, everything is quite simple, except with a reservation about smart mode - a mode for the most inexperienced vapers, when the board itself selects the power in relation to the resistance. So that a person does not put a 0.3 cartridge and does not try to supply all 160 watts to it. There is TC and you can play with it, there is a blocking and the ability to throw off the number of puffs.
Well, a bunch of promises about protection against overheating and overload - the first caught, the second not.
Colorful design schemes. Perhaps the jamb with the maximum power is associated with the first version of the firmware, after all, it's not a desire to think that the famous VOOPOO boards have messed with the board itself.
Charging type-s and parameters range from 1.7A at the start of the charge and up to stable 1.3A most of the charge time. But I don't really see the point in plugging the port, when, at the first filling, such a hygroscopic material of the body will saturate the liquid and will look depressing.
Now let's summarize. VOOPOO Argus as a mod may be interesting for advanced users due to its relevance as of 2020 and only with reservations for use in a mode greater than 100 watts. If you don't use it and pick up a small (maybe even MTL) tank, you get a pretty decent part of the setup. Even the question of the strait and the soiled body will not be very relevant. And as a bonus, you get a simple tank with bottom airflow, and it may also come in handy somewhere on the farm.
