Voopoo Argus P1 Pod Kit Review / Super Fast Charging

Richard WinterPod Vapes 16 Comments

Welcome to Vaping Hardware’s review of the latest Argus device to come out from Voopoo; the Argus P1 Pod Kit. Voopoo are continuing to release different devices with the Argus name and who can blame them, they have been and continue to be highly popular.

We were fortunate enough to have reviewed a couple of them; the Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod and the Argus GT Pod Mod a while back. When we were given the opportunity to review Voopoo’s new Argus P1, how could we refuse!

I believe this Argus P1 is the tenth addition in the Argus series and I can say it’s certainly different from the others we’ve come across. Small, compact, futuristic, stealth, coupled with a robust quality feel are words that certainly spring to mind.


Voopoo Argus P1 and Voopoo Drag Nano 2

The Voopoo Argus P1 pod kit is about as simple to use as it gets. Not only that, it’s small, very compact and is virtually the same size and dimensions as their Drag Nano 2 pod kit which we’ve also reviewed. What I can say though, the aesthetics of the Argus P1 really do look good.

A third of the casing is transparent so the internal circuit boards can be seen through the smoked tinted PCTG material which is identical to the color and material of the replaceable pods. Through the transparent casing on the side of the device is a UI display in the form of 4 rectangular LED’s, which are slightly obscured by the lanyard hook, showing the status of the battery during use and charging, together with any safety notifications.

It’s a Mouth-To-Lung (MTL) draw activated pod device and powered by an internal rechargeable 800mAh capacity battery. Charging the Argus P1 is really quick with PD fast charging (18 minutes) or standard charging via the Type-C USB charging port, specified as 5V/2.0A, located on the side of the device body.

The wattage range of the Argus P1 is 5W to 20W and is not physically adjustable but the Gene AI 1.2 chip adjusts the power by sensing the strength of your draw. Equally the wattage is auto selected depending on the type and resistance of the pod that’s fitted. Two different resistance pods are supplied with the kit: a 0.7 ohm and a 1.2 ohm. These pods are re-fillable but have fixed integrated coils so are NOT replaceable.

Update 25/1/2023: Argus replaceable coil pods are now available that accept Voopoo’s ITO Mesh replaceable coils. There are currently 4 different coil types available.

Just above the USB charging port is a small variable airflow control slider that provides about 3mm of travel from open to closed to adjust the tightness of the MTL draw.

Voopoo Argus P1 with the 2 Pods

Both of the two pods supplied with the kit are semi-opaque with a slight smoked tint and hold 2ml of e-liquid. They are a side-fill design with the fill port concealed behind a standard silicone rubber bung that’s accessible once the pod is removed. The mouthpiece is a duckbill style and the pod is magnetically secured to the top of the Argus P1.

The color we received to review is “Gunmetal” with a semi-matt finish and really does look very good against the tinted transparent full length ¼ width casing. There is a lanyard clip that is visible through the transparent casing and protrudes from the top of the Argus P1 next to the opening for the pod to attach the included lanyard strap that comes in the kit.

Overall, the Argus P1 looks very elegant, feels very robust and is a nice compact size. It’s made of zinc alloy and has a nice weight to it with a nice quality appearance.

I would like to thank Nical at Voopoo for sending us the Argus P1 pod kit. As always this review is completely unbiased and is my honest opinion of my findings while using and reviewing the supplied kit.

Voopoo Argus P1 Pod Kit Design and Appearance

Argus P1 Battery/Body

Voopoo Argus P1 Front View
Voopoo Argus P1 Reverse View

The Voopoo Argus P1 is a very compact sized MTL style draw device, is auto draw only (no fire button) and capable of providing up to 20W of power. The wattage is not adjustable (no +/- buttons) but derived from the attached pod. It will auto detect the resistance of the coil fitted in the pod being used and select the appropriate wattage (5W-20W). In addition to this, the intelligent Gene AI 1.2 chip senses the strength of your draw and automatically adjusts the output power accordingly.

It’s powered by an 800mAh capacity rechargeable internal battery with a Type-C USB charging port on the side of the Argus P1, just below the variable airflow control slider.

Voopoo Argus P1 Side Airflow View
Voopoo Argus P1 Transparent Side View

The Argus P1 is constructed out of zinc alloy giving it a robust quality feel and measures 52.6mm tall (excluding the pod), 46.7mm wide by 17.4mm deep and weighs in at 64.25 grams. When the pod is attached, the overall height is 74.6mm and the combined weight is 71.5 grams.

Voopoo Argus P1 Airflow Edge View
Voopoo Argus P1 Transparent Edge View

One really nice design feature of the Argus P1 is the full length ¼ width wrap-around side end of the P1 body is transparent having a smoked tinted PCTG finish which highlights the electronic circuit boards beneath. Within this transparent section is a fixed lanyard buckle type frame that protrudes through the top of the Argus P1 allowing the supplied lanyard to be fitted if you desire to use it.

Voopoo Argus P1 4 LED's

Also there are 4 cleverly concealed LED’s visible through this transparent casing that provide the UI indications and illuminate when you insert or remove the pod showing the battery status, illuminate while drawing on the pod and charging the Argus P1 or it’s displaying the different levels of protection.

While drawing on the pod, the output power will be automatically selected depending on the strength of your draw. The 4 LED’s will illuminate from 1-4 highlighting the power selected.

The Argus P1 charging capabilities are really impressive. The internal 800mAh capacity battery which is charged via the Type-C USB port on the side of the P1 body is capable of being charged under the following scenarios:

  • Regular Charging: 5V/2.0A.
  • PD Fast Charging: 5V/3.0A, 9V/1.5A, 12V/1.2A, 15V/1A

It’s nice to see the Argus P1 is PD (Power Delivery) enabled which basically means it’s capable of pulling through more current in a shorter amount of time. PD charging is specified on the Argus P1 packaging as fully charging the P1 in 18 minutes. Unfortunately I don’t have a PD charger so can’t verify this but will record the time it takes to charge the P1 using a 2A and a QC 3.0 (Quick Charge) source which I will cover in the How do I Charge the Argus P1 section of this review.

When using the Argus P1, the current discharge status of the battery is displayed on the 4 LED’s when you remove or insert the pod as follows:

  • 1 white LED bar  =  1% – 25% of remaining charge
  • 2 white LED bars = 26% – 50% of remaining charge
  • 3 white LED bars =  51% – 75% of remaining charge
  • 4 white LED bars =  76% – 100% of remaining charge

When the Argus P1 is placed on charge, the 4 bar LED’s will slowly cycle and sequentially count up. The number of LED’s showing is governed by the level of charge in the battery as above. When it’s fully charged, the 4 white bar LED’s will be displayed and remain illuminated (static).

There is NO firing button or On/Off button as the Argus P1 is draw activated only and controlled by the GENE chip set, which also ensures the multitude of safety features are maintained, such as:

  • Overtime protection (10 seconds)
  • Low battery protection
  • Short circuit protection
  • Hi temperature protection
  • Overcharge protection
Voopoo Argus P1 Airflow Slider Open
Voopoo Argus P1 Airflow Slider Closed

Airflow control is achieved by a single adjustable slider on the side of the Argus P1 body which adjusts between fully closed in the upward position to open in the down position giving approximately 3mm of travel. This airflow slider is notched to aid grip and is very slightly raised above the P1 body. The resistance of the slider is pretty tight so shouldn’t move on its own.

Voopoo Argus P1 Pod Recess

On the top of the Voopoo Argus P1 is the 24.5mm recessed oval opening for the pod to be located which can be fitted either way round. Within the pod recess are two gold plated spring loaded coil contact pins and two rectangular bar magnets that line up with the pod. There is also a smaller black auto draw sensor next to the central positive coil contact pin. Adjacent to the pod recess is the lanyard clip.

The bottom of the Argus P1 is flat so there are no issues when standing upright. Through the transparent part of the base you can just see the “CE” markings printed on one of the circuit boards.

Voopoo Argus P1 Voopoo Branding
Voopoo Argus P1 Argus Branding

Voopoo’s branding is limited to their name “Voopoo” screen printed in small silver lettering on the reverse face of the device casing and a much larger “Argus” in what looks like stuck on gold lettering sitting within the Argus name on the front face. Beneath the transparent part of the casing printed on the front and side circuit boards is “Gene” which is the branding for the chipset.

Voopoo Argus P1 Colour Range

There are 5 different color options available in the Argus P1 range: Silver, Gunmetal, Black, Red and Green.

Overall, the Argus P1 feels pretty solid, robust and well built. It’s very compact, feels very comfortable to hold, performs really well and in my opinion looks a great pod kit. It really is VERY small and fits perfectly in the hand.

Argus P1 Pod

Voopoo Argus P1 Pods

The Argus P1 pod is a side re-fillable pod with a 2ml e-liquid capacity. Two pods are included in the kit, one has an integrated 0.7 ohm coil and the other has a 1.2 ohm integrated coil. The coils are NOT replaceable so once the coil degrades the whole pod will need replacing.

Update 25/1/2023: Argus replaceable coil pods are now available that accept Voopoo’s ITO Mesh replaceable coils. There are currently 4 different coil types available.

When first installing your pod, make sure you remove the thin plastic film from the base of the pod. The pods come shipped with this protector so they can’t be accidently fired before e-liquid has been filled.

Voopoo Argus P1 Pod Mouthpiece

Each pod is manufactured out of clear opaque lightweight PCTG material making this really easy to see the level of e-liquid through the pod. The mouthpiece is a duckbill shape with a 9mm oval opening tapering to a 4mm circular cut out to cater for the MTL vape style.

Overall dimensions of the Argus P1 pods are 32.5mm tall by 25.4mm wide and 13.4mm deep. The weight of the pod is 7.15 grams.

Argus P1 Pod Side Fill Port Open

The Argus P1 pods side fill port is concealed behind a flush fitting black silicone rubber plug. To gain access to the fill port, the pod has to be removed from the Argus P1 body.

This plug has an indented arrow on it which identifies which end is to be lifted away to gain access to the filling port.

When the plug is opened, the other end of the silicone rubber flap will remain attached to the pod so it won’t get lost. It can be swivelled to the side to give easier access to the filling hole. This e-liquid fill port is a reasonable size measuring 4.5mm so is just big enough to accept short stubby e-liquid tip bottles.

Argus P1 Pod Base and Coil Bottom

On the underside of the pod are 4 small air intake holes, two either side of the integrated coil. There are no magnets visible on the base of the pod, they are concealed beneath the PCTG material. When the pod is fitted to the P1 body, they do lock and latch in place.

Branding on the pod is identified on the bottom black section that’s fitted into the Argus P1 pod recess. “Voopoo” is indented on one side of the pod and the coil resistance “0.7 or 1.2 ohms” indented into the silicone rubber fill port bung on the opposite side.

Voopoo Branding on the Argus P1 Pod

Inserting the pod is straight-forward enough, simply place the pod to the Argus P1 body recessed pod opening and it will slide into the recess and be locked and held in place by the magnets.

Removing the pod is carried out by grasping the pod mouthpiece and pulling away from the Argus P1 body/battery. It is a reasonably secure fit so is quite easy to remove.

When the pod is inserted or removed from the P1 body, the LED’s will light briefly. The number of LED’s that show depends on the remaining charge left in the battery.

Voopoo Argus P1 Functionality

The Voopoo Argus P1 pod kit is very simple and straightforward to use. It doesn’t have any menu options to worry about, there are no adjustment controls or fire button, not even an on/off switch. Quite simply all that’s required is ensuring your Argus P1 is charged and the pod contains e-liquid.

Depending on the pod you’re using, the Argus P1 will automatically detect the coil resistance in that pod and set the power level (wattage) accordingly. Unfortunately we don’t have individual power wattage figures for the 0.7ohm pod or the 1.2ohm pod. The P1 operates between 5W-20W so will be within these values.

What it does have are 4 rectangular bar LED’s that are visible through the smoked transparent casing. These provide the user interface (UI) in terms of illuminating when the pod is inserted or removed which highlights the current status of the battery, light up when you draw on the device, cycle when the device is on charge and indicate the different levels of protection.

Each of the LED’s will depict the status of your battery whenever you insert/remove the pod as follows:

  • 1 white LED bar  =  1% – 25% of remaining charge
  • 2 white LED bars = 26% – 50% of remaining charge
  • 3 white LED bars =  51% – 75% of remaining charge
  • 4 white LED bars =  76% – 100% of remaining charge

A variable output wattage is achieved by sensing the intensity of your draw and provides a fast responsive fire speed. The on board Gene chip also controls the included safety features and provides the visual indications via the 4 LED’s as follows:

  • Charging – LED’s will slowly cycle and increase in number
  • Full charge – All 4 LED’s will remain illuminated (static)
  • Current battery status – 1, 2, 3 or 4 LED’s will illuminate
  • Low battery – All LED’s flash red 10 times
  • Pod inserted/removed: 1, 2, 3 or 4 LED’s will illuminate
  • Short circuit – LED’s will flash red 2 times
  • Overtime protection (10 seconds) – All LED’s will flash red 8 times
  • Overheat protection: All LED’s will flash red 15 times

As you draw on the pod, soft gentle draws are sensed and the output wattage will be lowered. This is shown on the 4 LED’s with only 1 or 2 being illuminated. A harder draw will increase the power output and the LED’s will increase showing as 3 or 4 illuminated bars.


The Voopoo Argus P1 pod kit incorporates an adjustable airflow control slider on the side of the casing, positioned just above the Type-C USB port.

When the airflow control slider is in the downward position the airflow is open and provides an airy MTL draw. Moving the airflow control slider uppermost, the airflow will be closed off and provides a tight restrictive MTL draw. You can position the lever anywhere between min and max to tweak your preferred vaping style.

Voopoo Argus P1 Performance

Argus P1 with 0.7ohm and 1.2ohm Pods

Included in the Argus P1 kit are two pods, one with a 0.7 ohm coil and the other one with a 1.2 ohm coil. As we’ve already mentioned, these pods don’t have replaceable coils therefore once the coil becomes degraded, the pod will have to be disposed of and a new one fitted.

Update 25/1/2023: Argus replaceable coil pods are now available that accept Voopoo’s ITO Mesh replaceable coils. There are currently 4 different coil types available.

As with most MTL vape pods, freebase nicotine or nic salts with a PG/VG ratio of 50/50 is recommended because of the smaller wicking ports in the coil and the lower power (wattage) used.

When first using a new pod, I would recommend filling the pod with your e-liquid and leave it to stand for 10-15 minutes to allow the e-liquid to saturate into the wick before vaping.

0.7 ohm Pod

Argus P1 0.7ohm Pod

From the very first draw, the flavor came through straight away and was clean, fresh and crisp. I was using a freebase e-liquid at 6mg 70/30 VG/PG ratio and was pleasantly surprised that I was getting a decent throat hit. Vapor was pretty good on a light draw which did increase to quite dense vapor as I drew on the pod harder.

I preferred the airflow half open which I felt enabled me to vape semi DTL (RDL) which seemed to increase the intensity of the vape. Altering the airflow to just off the closed position tightened the draw but still produced really nice results.

I’ve been using this pod for about 2 weeks now and cycled about 40ml of e-liquid through it with no loss of flavor. Having removed the pod periodically, to check for signs of leaking on the contact pins or in the pod recess, showed no evidence of e-juice at all.

Overall, the pod performed really well and was giving very good results.

1.2 ohm Pod

Argus P1 1.2 ohm Pod

The 1.2 ohm pod was equally as impressive as the 0.7 ohm pod.

My e-liquid again was 6mg freebase but decided to stick with a 50/50 PG/VG ratio as I didn’t want to overload and choke the pod. Flavor and vapor was very good right from the outset and with hard vaping I didn’t get any dry hits.

I detected a greater power variation with this pod when taking a gentle draw against a harder stronger draw. I have to say the auto power variation is a really good innovative design, something I’ve not come across before.

Coil longevity is a little unknown as I’ve only cycled about 30ml of e-liquid through it so far but is still performing really well.

Any Leaks?

Throughout my time using both the pods supplied with the Argus P1 kit, there was no evidence of any leaks. When re-filling the pod each time, there were still no signs of condensation around the bottom of the coil or in the pod recess.

I left the pod in the Argus P1 for three days without using it and checked for evidence of e-liquid in the pod recess and there were still no signs of any seepage.


The airflow slider adjustment worked effortlessly and had a good resistive feel to the slider. Closing the airflow off produced a really nice restrictive MTL vape but does produce a warm vape. Opening up the airflow provided a less restrictive (airy) draw, I would even say a Restrictive Direct to Lung draw (RDL). There isn’t a great deal of movement on the slider (approx. 3mm) but enough to customize your ideal draw to suite your vaping style.

Auto Draw

Auto draw worked faultlessly. With the airflow closed, even the slightest of draws fired the Argus P1. Opening the airflow requires a stronger draw as you’d expect but still activates the auto draw. Irrespective of the position of the airflow, the draw was smooth and really quiet.

As we’ve already mentioned, the strength of your draw is sensed by the Gene AI 1.2 chip and the output power automatically adjusted to suit the intensity of your draw. While this was quite difficult to gauge, I did find that a stronger draw on the pod felt like the Argus P1 was outputting more power.

Performance Summary

Both the 0.7 ohm and 1.2 ohm pods were impressive. Flavor and vapor from them was really good.

I’ve been switching between the 0.7 ohm pod and the 1.2 ohm pod over a two week period and so far I’ve cycled 30ml – 40ml of e-liquid through each pod. The flavor from both pods is still crisp and performing as they did when I first started using them.

The draw was smooth with no gurgling and the throat hit, even though I was vaping 6mg freebase nicotine, was very good. For those of you that prefer a stronger hit, I would recommend switching to a higher strength nic salt based e-liquid.

The airflow control on the Argus P1 is a nice touch and always a welcome addition rather than having a fixed airflow. Tweaking the airflow to tighten or loosen the draw worked really well and for me worked best being slightly open.

Voopoo Argus P1 Battery Performance

Voopoo Argus P1 Pod Kit Front View

The Voopoo Argus P1’s 800mAh internal battery is a good decent sized capacity for a pod mod of this size and on average was giving me around 9 hours of vaping time on a single charge.

The LED battery status indication was for me slightly strange. Having to remove or reinsert the pod to check the remaining battery level was a bit alien to me. I understand why Voopoo have done it this way because the LED’s indicate the power of your vape as you draw on the device.

Battery performance is always subjective and depends on the resistance of the pod you’re using, the frequency you vape and your vaping style.

The Argus P1 indicates the status of the battery when you remove or re-insert the pod. The LED’s will illuminate corresponding to the remaining battery level. To reiterate, when drawing on the pod the LED’s indicate the auto power level BUT once the battery is nearing its cut-off state the power LED’s will change from white to red.

Once they turn red you only have approximately 1 minute (10 puffs) before they start to flash. When the LED’s flash red, removing or re-inserting the pod still shows the battery status as 1 white LED bar.

Once the battery is depleted of its charge as depicted by the low voltage cut-off value, the Argus P1 LED’s will flash red 10 times and you will no longer be able to vape.

At this stage you will need to charge the device. The charging options are very good which we will cover in How do I Charge the Argus P1 section. Unfortunately the Argus P1 doesn’t have pass-thru so you won’t be able to vape while it’s being charged.

How do I Fill the Argus P1 Pod?

The Voopoo Argus P1 pod is a side fill design. You’ll have to remove the pod from the Argus P1 battery/body in order to fill with e-liquid.

How Do I Fill The Argus P1 Pod

The fill port is located on one side of the pod casing and is concealed behind a black silicon rubber flap. This flap sits flush with the side of the pod. A small arrow highlights which part of the rubber flap lifts away.

This silicone rubber flap is attached to the pod by a small rubber pin so there’s no chance of it getting lost. It can be twisted sideways when you’re filling to give a little more free room. Because the fill port opening is only 4.5mm wide, care should be taken when using larger e-liquid/shortfill bottle tips.

Pull open the flap and insert your e-liquid bottle tip into the opening. Tilt the pod on its side to aid filling and to get the maximum amount of e-liquid into the pod. Once filled, re-insert the silicon rubber flap making sure the fill port is securely re-seated.

Re-insert the pod into the Argus P1 body till it’s held in place by the magnetic catches.

Quick Tip: If you are filling the pod for the first time, once filled, leave to stand for approx. 10-15 minutes before you start to vape. This will help saturate the wick fully in e-liquid and help prolong the life of the coil/pod.

When and How do I Change the Argus P1 Pod?

Because both of the included Argus P1 pods have fixed non replaceable coils, when the coil starts to degrade after a couple of weeks use, the pod will need to be discarded and a new pod fitted.

An indication of the coil degrading will show by either a loss of flavor and/or a lack of vapor. Continuing beyond this loss of flavor/vapor will finally result in a burnt taste. Equally the coil could break going open or short circuit. Either way, when this happens discard the pod and fit a new one.

Removing the Pod from the Argus P1 Body View 2
Removing the Pod from the Argus P1 Body View 3

Pull the pod away from the Argus P1 battery/body. Unfortunately if you still have e-liquid in the pod, this will have to be discarded as well.

When fitting a new pod, follow the procedure for How do I Fill the Pod. As you insert the pod into the Argus P1 body, the LED’s will briefly illuminate to identify the current discharge status of your battery.

How do I Charge the Voopoo Argus P1?

How Do I Charge The Argus P1

Because the Argus P1 has an internal battery, charging can only be carried out using the USB to Type-C charging cable (supplied in the kit). Simply connect the cable into the Type-C port on the side of the Argus P1 body and the other end into a suitable USB power source. The specified charging circuit of the Argus P1 is 5V/2.0A for standard charging or 5V/3.0A for fast charging.

When the Argus P1 is placed on charge, the first lower LED will cycle on and off 5 times, stop for 1 second then cycle again 5 times. Once the battery reaches 25% of its charge, 2 LED’s will sequentially cycle. These LED’s will continually cycle and sequentially increase until a full charge is reached at which point all 4 LED’s will turn static and remain illuminated.

Argus P1 on Charge

The Argus P1 does NOT include pass-through so you cannot vape while it’s being charged.

Charging time from full discharge to fully charged will take approximately 18 minutes when using a 5V/2.0A power source. Strangely enough, when charging from a QC 3.0 power source, the charging time still only took 18 minutes.

I timed the charging cycle using a 2.0A source to determine the length of time it took for each of the bar LED’s to cycle as follows:

  • 1 LED – 2 LED’s = 6 minutes
  • 2 LED’s – 3 LED’s = 8 minutes
  • 3 LED’s – 4 LED’s   = 2 minutes
  • All LED’s Static      = 1 minute

Even though the Argus P1 charges really quickly, while it was on charge, it does remain cool to the touch. Despite this, I would still recommend to ONLY charge the device on a non-flammable surface.

As with any vape device, NEVER leave it unattended whilst charging.

Voopoo Argus P1 Pod Kit Summary

The Voopoo Argus P1 pod kit is as an entry to medium level pod kit. Despite its very compact size, the performance from both the device and pods are very good. The styling looks impressive and the quality and feel of the device shine through.

Voopoo Argus P1 Kit Front Side View
Voopoo Argus P1 Kit Side Reverse View

Battery capacity is decent with the added advantage of standard or fast charging. Even though the coils are integrated and not replaceable, the pods are re-fillable and from the limited time (2.5 weeks) I’ve been using the kit, the pods are still performing well.

The airflow control worked well and is always a bonus being able to customize your vape experience.

Power wise I found the intensity of the vape was very good. The wattage is auto set for each pod type (coil resistance) but also sensed and adjusted on the strength of your draw. Quantifying this at times was not always obvious but I can verify that the stronger the draw the higher the power output seemed to be.

Charging times on the Argus P1 are really impressive. Using the supplied cable and charging it from a standard 5V/2A power source fully charged the P1 in under 18 minutes.

I would recommend the Argus P1 to anyone wanting a non-complicated vape device as this one does tick all the boxes.

  1. min maaf mau tnya jika magnet persegi panjang nya hilang satu gabakal terjadi apa²? Google Translate says: Sorry, I wanted to ask, if one of the rectangular magnets is missing, what will happen?

    1. Hi Hipdi, thank you for your question. I’ve used Google to translate your question into English. If the translation is correct then if one of the magnets is missing it means that the pod will not be held in securely. It will still operate but the pod could fall out. I would suggest trying to glue a new magnet in place. If you’ve only just purchased your Argus P1 then go back to the place where you purchased it from and ask for a replacement.

  2. dude my argus doesnt hit when i try to , only thing it does is that all the leds illuminate only once in blue color when i inhale and this happened when i didnt take out the pod when i left it for a day , the question is what is happening and how should i fix it ?

    1. Hi Jeffery, it sounds like the auto draw sensor is working as the leds are illuminating as you draw on the mouthpiece. Check to make sure the leds illuminate once when you remove and insert the pod. This will verify that the P1 is reading the pod.
      I would also check the pod recess to see if you have eliquid in it. If so, clean it with a Qtip. With the pod removed, turn it upside down and tap the mouthpiece several times on tissue paper to see if eliquid comes out the mouthpiece. You could gently blow through the base of the pod to dislodge any eliquid through the mouthpiece.
      Reinsert the pod and try drawing again. If it’s still not drawing and your not getting a hit I would try another pod in the P1 to see if that’s the problem.

  3. Bro i got my argus P1 2 weeks ago it came with 2 pods i got my first pod filled on 12 oct 2023 and i used it with care but first pod only lasted 11 days now its 23rd and i had to switch my pod with the new one I’m really upset it should hv worked atleast for a month. Can you please tell what could be the issues ??

    1. Hi Chris, thank you for your question. Firstly I have to say that with any pod or coil some will not always last as long as others. This can be down to several factors that I’ve listed below AND the manufacturing process of the pods/coils.
      Things that can reduce coil/pod life are:
      Not letting a new pod sit for 15mins after it’s been filled with e-liquid.
      Chain vaping or long draws.
      Letting the e-liquid level fall below the wicking ports of the coil.
      Using a high VG e-liquid as the wicking ports wont cope with the thicker juice.
      Certain flavors and over-sweetened e-liquids.
      These Argus pods produce great results and on average I achieve anywhere between 2 weeks and 2 months, sometimes longer from each pod. If I use shortfills then my pod life reduces but if I use my DIY e-liquid thru the pod then pod life increases 2 fold. Hope this helps Chris.

  4. Had my Argus P1 for 5 weeks now and I’ve noticed the 1.2ohm pods are a problem for this device no matter if it’s new or one I’ve used for a minute it will cause the vape to go into a 8 Red blink time out even on 2-3 second draws I highly recommend just sticking to the 0.7ohm pods because since I switched to those I haven’t had a time out issue since

    1. Hi Robert, the 0.7ohm and 1.2ohm pods should work perfectly in the Argus P1. I’ve not heard of the condition you have only happening with the 1.2ohm pod before. I’ve been using both pods and replacement 1.2ohm pods in the P1 with no problems.
      Overtime protection, although does sometimes activate nearer 8 seconds, should not happen at 2-3 seconds and I don’t understand why it’s happening on just your 1.2ohm pod.
      I’ve spoken with 3 other P1 users and they are using the 1.2ohm pods with no problems. Have you tried a replacement 1.2ohm pod as it may be something not quite right with the 1.2ohm pod you have?

  5. Do you have to clean where the pod inserts cause i think i had residue and the pod that was on lasted very little time

    1. Hi LD, thanks for your question.
      It’s always best to wipe the bottom of the pod and inside the pod recess with a tissue everytime you fill up the pod with eliquid just to make sure both are clean and free from any juice. More often than not pods do tend to seap eliquid although the Argus pods are normally pretty good.
      Depending on the resistance pod your using and the amount you vape, you may have to refill the pod every couple of hours. Unless the pod is damaged, only a small amount of eliquid will gather on the base of the pod and in the pod recess. Hope this helps.

  6. Hi Richard – can i use the 0.7 ohm pod for vaping 6mg freebase, 70/30 (VG/PG) juice?
    Or a lower VG juice is a must?


    1. Hi SA, thanks for your question. The short answer is yes, 70VG works fine with this pod and 6mg freebase gives a good throat hit. I usually say that small coils because of their smaller wicking ports work better with a thinner 50/50 ratio.
      Some smaller coils also need nic salts to satisfy the nic craving but again the Voopoo pod work well with either.
      My main e-liquid I use with these pods is 70VG/30PG at 6mg and I’ve never had a dry hit. Just bear in mind not to chain vape on the pod so the wicking ports have chance to stay saturated.

  7. Hi Richard, great review I was gifted the Argus P1 by Voopoo on POTV. What a cracking little kit it is I’m a MTL vaper and this is ideal for anyone who wants a brilliant vape kit for flavour ease of use and a very nice looking kit, I just love it. You might know me as TP72, as said earlier a great review thanks mate.

    1. Hi TP72,
      Good to chat with you here and yes we’ve had a few good conversations on POTV, hope your keeping well mate? Thanks for your nice comment about my review, glad you liked it. I agree, the Argus P1 is a great little device. For something so small it performs really well and as you say looks very good too.
      Cheers again mate.

    1. Hi DJ,
      The Argus P1 was only released to the market on the 18th October. I’m sure as the days pass lots of retailers will be stocking it so you shouldn’t have any problems getting hold of one in both your local stores or online.
