Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod Review/A Solid Built Kit

Richard WinterPod Vapes 64 Comments

The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W pod mod is an 80W device, more suited for Direct-To-Lung (DTL) vaping and incorporating a 3000mAh internal battery. It has a semi-rugged look and feel and it’s constructed out of zinc alloy and leather. The pod is re-fillable and accepts PnP coils with slider controlled twin airflow slots on the mod itself.

Argus Pro 80W Kit

E-liquid capacity in the pod is 4.5ml (standard) or 2ml (EU version). A really lovely touch, the pod is NOT smoked in color, it’s virtually clear so you can visibly see the level of e-liquid you have left in the pod.

All of the settings are displayed on a really clear and crisp 0.96 inch colored OLED display and controlled by the GENE.TT chipset.

My initial thought when I first saw the Argus Pro 80W pod mod was it reminded me of the Ageis Boost. The colored zinc alloy frame running through the ruggedized body is reminiscent of that design. Even though it looks ruggedized, I don’t think it’s IP rated as it’s not mentioned in the spec of the design.

The Argus Pro 80W pod mod is the bigger brother of the Argus pod in that its power is increased from 40W-80W. The chipset is slightly different and the display is bigger. Also, the charging circuit has increased from 1A to 2A.

I would like to thank the guys at NewVaping for sending me the Voopoo Argus 80W Pro Pod Mod for the purpose of this review. As always this review is completely unbiased and is my honest opinion on the Voopoo Argus 80W Pro Pod Mod Kit. This post may also contain affiliate links which earn us a small commission at no extra cost to you.

It’s also worth mentioning that while the version I received from Newvaping comes supplied with a DTL pod and coils, Voopoo also have a MTL pod and coils option for the Argus Pro pod mod. There’s also an RBA coil available for those wishing to build their own coils.

Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod Design and Appearance

The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W pod mod is semi ruggedized and is constructed out of zinc alloy and leather. The shape is tubular with one flat side where the controls and display are housed.

It’s capable of delivering up to 80W of power from its 3000mAh internal battery. Charging is carried out via the Type-C USB port specified as 5V/2A.

Ultra-fast firing speeds of 0.001 seconds are achieved by the GENE-TT chip set, which also ensure the multitude of safety features are maintained, such as:

  • Overtime Protection
  • Output Over Current Protection
  • Low Battery Protection
  • Max Power Protection
  • Over Temperature Protection
  • Overcharge Protection
  • Atomizer Short-Circuit Protection

All the controls and features are on the front flat side of the Argus Pro 80W pod mod, with the exception of the airflow control lever which is found on the reverse side. These controls include a 0.96inch OLED color display, a rectangular firing button and a larger square +/ – rocker button.

The Type-C USB charging port is located behind a rubberized flap, positioned just below the +/- rocker button.

Argus Pro 80W USB Port View

Two adjustable airflow slots are located on each side of the mod just below where the pod sits. Adjusting the variable airflow is carried out by the slider button control, simply sliding to the left or right.

At the top of the Argus Pro 80W pod mod, Voopoo have included a metal loop for a lanyard to be attached (not included in the kit). I’m not sure I’d want this pod mod hanging around my neck but nice to have the option. The metal loop can be a bit frustrating at times as it does tend to rattle.

On the top of the Argus pro 80W pod mod is a recessed circular metal plate, fixed slightly above 3 coil spring loaded connecting pins. The pod itself has three strong magnets in the base around the perimeter of the PnP coil. When inserted into the mod, the magnets attach to the metal plate and the coil presses against the 3 connecting pins.

There are 5 colors available in the Argus Pro 80W pod mod range:

  • Carbon fibre and black
  • Vintage grey and black/silver
  • Denim and black/silver
  • Litchi leather and black/red
  • Litchi leather and black/blue

The one I received was the litchi leather and black/blue version which is seen throughout this review. The color change between the designs is limited to the zinc alloy frame feature and the leather inlay. The rest of the mod is a rubberized matte black finish.

One side of the mod has the words “Voopoo” and the other side has the logo “Gene” and the words “Gene chip inside”. On the leather inlay are the words “Argus” in the same color as the alloy frame.

At the base of the Argus Pro 80W pod mod is a knurled circular section that resembles a battery cap. After fiddling and trying to see if it unscrews, no joy! It’s purely decorative.

Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Design and Appearance

The pod is manufactured out of clear opaque black lightweight PCTG material. I love the fact Voopoo have chosen to use a see-through tint rather than the normal semi-opaque type where you can’t really see your e-liquid through.

A reasonably wide bore mouthpiece is fully integrated into the pod and the design is circular in shape. A stainless steel liner runs through the center of the pod which houses the PnP push fit coil.

E-liquid capacity is a pretty impressive 4.5ml (2ml EU variant) and the pod has a pretty large filling port at the base. Yes, it’s a bottom fill design. A silicon rubber flap connects to the pod and when you need to fill, simply unplug and fill up.

The filling plug is attached to the base of the pod by a circular rivet, similar in size and design to the magnets.

Three strong magnets do a very good job of holding the pod in place. Removing the pod actually requires a pretty strong grasp of the mouthpiece. I did find it easier to slightly lever the pod to one side which releases one of the magnets, making it far easier to pull free.

The pod, being circular is shape, will fit into the Argus Pro 80W mod no matter how you line it up. Simply place the pod into the recess at the top of the mod, gently push down and the magnets will attach and lock onto the metal plate.

As always, I’d opt for the larger 4.5ml pod version simply to negate the need for filling up as frequently.

Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod Functionality

The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W pod mod is very straightforward to use and is limited to variable wattage (VW) only. There’s unfortunately no temperature control (TC) mode but the firmware is upgradable via the Type-C USB port, so maybe an option will be available in the future.

All of the set parameters are shown on the 0.96 inch colored OLED display. These include:

  • Battery Status
  • Wattage Display (set by the +/-button)
  • Mode of Operation
  • Lock and Unlock of the Fire and +/- Button.
  • Resistance of the Fitted Coil
  • Voltage Applied to the Coil
  • Puff Counter
  • Puff (firing) Time
  • A Graph Display of the Vaping Level

Mode of Operation

The Argus Pro 80W pod mod is both draw activated and fire button activated. Either option is selected by switching between the different modes. For auto-draw activation, select “A&P” mode, for button firing, select “P” mode.

The color OLED display really is very impressive. Everything you wish to know is very clearly displayed and very crisp. The use of color on parts of the display really does make all the parameters stand out.

To gain access to the menu options, you use the firing button and the +/- button as follows:

  • Fire Button Pressed – Start Vaping
  • – Button Pressed – Wattage Down
  • + Button Pressed –  Wattage Up
  • Fire Button Pressed 5 Times – Power On/Off
  • Fire Button Pressed 3 Times – Switches Between S/R Modes
  • Fire and – Button – Puff Counter Reset/Data Clear
  • Fire and + Button – Device Lock/Unlocked

Wattage is variable from 5W through to 80W in 1W increments. Holding down either the – or + button will cycle through the wattage quicker. The +/- buttons are not continuously cycling but stop once the minimum wattage is reached (5W). Once 80W is reached, the display will indicate “Max Power”.

The different modes of operation in terms of S and R are as follows:

S (Smart) Mode

Automatically selects and sets the wattage depending on the coil that’s fitted and won’t allow you to increase the wattage beyond that specified by the coil.

If you wish to vape at a lower wattage than the minimum recommended, you can do. If you want to exceed a higher wattage than that specified on the coil, a message will be displayed saying “Max Power”.

R (RBA) Mode

Normal mode, meaning you can adjust the wattage within the 5W – 80W range, irrespective of the coil you’ve fitted. I was a little confused with the heading of RBA. As most of us know, RBA stands for re-buildable atomizer. R mode really is just standard power mode.

P (Manual) Mode

This mode stands for PRESS (fire button activated only). It deactivates the auto-draw, irrespective of whether you’re in S or R mode.

A&P (Double Ignition) Mode

Selecting the A&P (double ignition) mode allows you the option to use either the firing button or draw activation.

Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod Pod Performance

Before getting on to the individual coils themselves, I have two observations worth mentioning:

Firstly, operating the device in P mode (push button firing), gives you a stronger and more responsive vape. The instant the fire button is pressed, the coil fires.

Secondly, draw activation (A&P mode) is not very responsive. With the airflow open, you really have to draw on the pod for it to activate. Restricting the airflow does help but to be honest it’s better relying on the fire button mode of operation (P).

PnP VM6 0.15 ohm Mesh Coil

Argus Pro VM6 Coil

Voopoo state the recommended wattage for the coil is between 60W-80W.

After having primed the coil with my 6mg freebase nicotine Mango Ice, I filled the pod and left to stand for 15 minutes.

I set the wattage to 20W to initially bed the coil in. My first vape was such a shock, the flavor and clouds produced were incredible. The hit I got was really powerful.

Normally at this point I would increase the power in 5 watt increments. Not this time. I reduced the wattage right down to 5W and tried again.

I couldn’t believe how much vapor I was getting and the hit was still surprisingly powerful. The flavor didn’t really change either, still crisp and strong.

I’ll be honest here and say I’ve not used these coils before so wasn’t sure what to expect. Vaping this coil at 5W is like 25W plus on another pod/mod.

Increasing the wattage back up to 20W, then to 30W, and finally to 40W, the flavor really was immense and the room was filling up with vapor. I was beginning to get a head rush.

I took a quick draw (and I mean a quick one) at 60W. WOW! This was way too much for me.

Vaping this coil at my ideal lower wattage of 15W was still really impressive, even though way below the specified ‘best fit’. Of course this will improve the battery life with minimal loss of flavor and vapor.

PnP VM1 0.3 ohm Mesh Coil

Voopoo state the recommended wattage for the coil is between 32W-40W.

Now being very cautious after my experience with the VM6 coil, I used the same e-liquid with this coil. Having primed and left to stand for 15 minutes, what was I going to find?

Setting the power to 5W gave me the same intense vape, lots of flavor and vapor. I really couldn’t believe how powerful these coils were hitting at such a low wattage.

Incrementing the wattage up by 5W each time just got more and more surprising. I stopped at 30W as the flavor, vapor and hit was incredible.

Coil Summary

Both the VM1 and VM6 coils are AMAZING. The flavor and vapor is off the charts, even at incredibly low wattages.

I’ve only been vaping these coils for a few days so can’t really comment on their longevity but so far I’m really impressed.

No leaks from the coils and the airflow adjustment is very good, perfect for an airy DTL vape or a restricted RDL vape.

Voopoo provide a wide range of different PnP coils, including an RBA coil that fits the Argus Pro 80W pod mod. All the coils are interchangeable with the standard Argus pod as well as the Drag range of pod mods too.

Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod Battery Performance

The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod is powered by an internal 3000mAh battery. Charging time is very impressive, taking approximately 80 minutes to fully charge, due to the 2 amp Type-C USB charger.

As a medium to heavy vaper, I was achieving a good days vaping from a fully charged battery. This was irrespective of what coil type I had fitted (but hardly surprising as I was vaping at such low wattages).

The battery display icon will turn red as the Argus Pro is running out of charge and the message “Check Battery” will be displayed when the Argus Pro 80W pod mod requires charging.

How Do I Fill The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod?

Filling The Argus Pro 80W Pod

The Argus Pro 80W pod is a bottom fill design. You’ll have to remove the pod from the mod housing in order to fill with e-liquid.

The fill port is located on the base of the pod and is concealed behind a black silicon rubber flap. This flap sits pretty flush with the bottom of the pod. Handy that the rubber flap is attached to the pod so there’s no chance of it getting lost.

Because the fill port opening is pretty wide, it’ll accept those larger e-liquid/shortfill bottles.

Pull open the flap and insert your e-liquid drip tip into the opening. Once filled, re-insert the silicon rubber flap making sure the fill port is securely re-seated.

Quick Tip: If you are filling the pod for the first time, drip some e-liquid onto the wick of the coil first. Push the coil into the pod then fill the pod and 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 your coil.

How Do I Change The Coil in The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod?

Changing the coil in the Argus Pro 80W pod is really straightforward.

The coil design is a push fit (PnP) connection type with an O-Ring towards the base of the coil. Because the coil has an increased lip size at the bottom of the coil, simply grasp the coil and pull outwards.

Be careful when removing the coil if you have a full pod of e-liquid as spillage will occur. Small amounts of e-liquid left in the pod when removing the coil will remain in the pod.

When re-inserting a new coil, simply push in the coil and then re-fit the pod into the Argus body. As always when using a new coil, make sure you prime the coil first before using. Drip a little e-liquid into the side wicking ports and down into the top of the coil.

To get the best performance out of your coil and prolong its life, please read our guide on Getting The Most Out Of Your Coil.

How Do I Charge The Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod?

Charging The Argus Pro 80W

Using the supplied Type-C USB charging cable, plug the cable into the USB port on the Argus mod after releasing the silicone rubber flap. Connect the other end into a suitable power source (typically 5V/2A).

Whilst charging, the Argus Pro 80W pod mod will display the scrolling battery icon with the words ” Charging” above and the numerical percentage charged below. Once fully charged, the battery icon will stop scrolling and the numerical display will show 100%.

Charging time takes approximately 80 minutes to fully charge the battery using the supplied charging cable and an appropriate charging source.

The Argus Pro 80W pod mod doesn’t have a ‘pass-through” facility therefore you won’t be able to charge and vape at the same time.

As always, NEVER leave your vape device unattended while on charge.

Voopoo Argus Pro 80W Pod Mod Price

For such an impressive pod mod, the Voopoo Argus Pro 80W pod mod really is worth investing in. For a compact, well built and incredible performing vape, you won’t get a much better device for the price.

Expect to pay in the region of £35/$35 for the Kit. NewVaping are doing a really good deal on the Argus Pro kit at a really good price.

  1. Please any help I’ve got 3 voopoo models, drag s, dragon one and now an Argus pro, not one will turn off or change modes, I’ve tried the 5 times to turn off and 3 for changing mode, but nothing. I’ve searched for help and can’t find anyone saying they’ve had a problem thank you

    1. Hi Teresa, thanks for your question. I’m struggling to come up with an answer to your problem as for that to happen on all of your mods doesnt sound right. The only thing I can assume is your not pressing the fire button quick enough within the 5 seconds to either turn it off or switch modes. You need to do 5 short clicks on the fire button in order for it to work.

    2. Merhaba Argus Pro kullanıyorum. Yazılım guncelledim. Ekran ilk açılışta Set time H-00 M-00 yazıyor. Hemen açılmıyor. Yardımcı olursanız sevinirim. Eskisi gibi ana ekran açılsın çok güzel olur.

      Translated message: Hi, I am using the Argus Pro. I updated the software. The screen reads Set time H-00 M-00 at first boot. It doesn’t open right away. I would be glad if you help. It would be nice to have the home screen open as before.

      1. Hi Ibrahim, thanks for your question. I have not tried a software update on the Argus Pro as I’ve not had good results when trying it on other devices. I can only suggest trying a different version update and see if it can fix the issue you have. Hope you resolve the problem.

  2. The voodoo is such a great vape i give it a 10 and who cares about it being hard to no bitten hit push the button and enjoy the great hits you get no complaints at all
    Thanks richard

    1. Hi Moon, thanks for your comment.
      Glad to hear you’re loving the Argus Pro 80W. Its been around for a while now but is still a really good device. Had mine for quite a while now and it’s still working perfectly. Happy Vaping!

  3. Hello, i have a question. How to increase and reduce Ohms in my Argus Pro? ( I think it is Ohms, that thing higher than “V”)

    1. Hi Dave, thanks for your question.
      The numerical Ohms reading is not adjustable. Its a value that the Argus Pro reads off the coil that’s fitted in the pod. If you use a different value coil the reading will match that coil. All pod/mods are the same, the resistance of the coil is fixed. It’s this fixed reference that allows you to alter the wattage. Hope this helps.

      1. Im new to vaping coz ive quit smoking the argus pro ive bought is special edition been using it for a month now with no problem at all very easy to use following the instruction not to full tank so no leakage ive started at 15 ohm now to .3 ohm my ejuice 3mg upnext is 0mg❤️

        1. Hi Chris, thanks for your comment.
          Glad to hear you’ve quit smoking and the Argus Pro 80W helped you to achieve this. It’s a great kit. Good luck with reducing your nicotine level. Don’t reduce the strength to soon otherwise you may slip back to smoking. I’ve been vaping over 9 yrs now and have reduced my nic strength at different stages down to 3mg.
          I often vape zero nic but do slip back to 3mg which seems to be my ideal strength.

  4. Hi,
    I’ve bought this vape couple months ago. Didnt use it much cause I was smoking too but now I stoped smoking so I want to use it more. The A&P use to work perfectly but now it doesnt at all. Do you have any Idea

    1. Hi Damaris, thanks for your question.
      The A&P mode is auto draw. Does P mode ( fire button) work ok?. Can you switch ok between the two modes?
      Make sure the bottom of the coil and the pod recess are dry and clean. Select A&P mode and make sure A&P is displayed on the screen. Close off the airflow and take a few draws and hopefully it should work. Opening the airflow does reduce the sensitivity of the auto draw sensor.
      If it still doesnt work, vape for a little while using the fire button and this hopefully cleans out the auto draw sensor so you can then switch back to A&P mode and it will work again. Hope this helps.

      1. Hi,
        I have bought this vape one month ago,,but not use continue, because of too much leaking,,
        Richard sir,My english is not good,i request you please help me how i use this vape,and what type of juice i use.

        1. Hi Sameer, thanks for your question.
          Sorry to hear your pod is leaking. First thing to check is the condition of the seals (o rings) on the coil. Make sure they are not flattened or kinked. Try replacing with a new coil making sure its seated properly. Make sure the silicone fill port bung is fully in.
          The eliquid I use is 50/50 and doesnt leak but you could also use 70VG which may stop your leaking problem.
          I will also say that leaving the pod on the Argus Pro without using it for a day or more will cause slight leaking.
          I hope these pointers help.

    1. Hi Milissa,
      Thank you for your question.
      There are 4 different modes that are selectable by pressing the fire button 3 times. The two options for firing are “P” which is fire button activated and “A&P” which is auto draw. Each time you press the fire button 3 times it will select these options. We did cover this in our review so do take a look and you can see the different screen displays that are shown each time you press the fire button.

  5. Hello Richard,
    I’ve had the Argus Pro for about 1 and a half years now.
    I’ve come to the point that alot of Argus Pro vapers meet where the device just shuts down every 2 puffs then start again. I’m pretty sure the coil is still good I’ve changed it a week ago.

    When I try it so much it just stay on not responding to anything untill the battery dies tried to send to repair but got nothing back from it.

    Even asked if changing the battery could fix the issue but they told me no it won’t.
    I also tried resetting the puff counter cleaning the device from e-liquid doing everything possible.
    It’s taken all the fun from the vaping and turned it into agony I guess.
    If you have anything to suggest or a way to communicate with the manufacturer that would be great thankyou.

    Also great review very useful.

    1. Hi Ahmad,

      Thank you for your question.
      Firstly thank you for your nice comment on our review.
      With regards to your question, we’ve heard this problem can happen on the Vinci but not come across it happening on the Argus Pro before.
      It’s very difficult to pinpoint the cause of the problem but suspect it shuts down due to the electronics inside the device thinking its detecting a short on the coil or a high temperature shutdown, most likely caused by eliquid seeping inside the device over time.

      We’ve not found this on the two Argus Pros we use. I can only suggest leaving yours to dry out for a couple of days and try it again to see if the problem goes away.

      As you’ve had yours for well over a year now which is quite good going, if the problem isn’t rectified after leaving it to dry out it may be time to get a new one.

  6. I have 2 of these and they are excellent!
    Comparing the Voopoo range, the Argus Pro had best battery (3000 = to my previous Innokin set up)
    I swapped out the tanks for MTL ones (£4-8 a pair) and vaping Salts at around 12-14w on a TR1 (1.2) Coil, I get well over a days life from a battery. Great system so I also have a cheap and cheerful Vsuit which is pretty compact if just nipping out (although this has no air flow).
    Only had one leakage, and that was when I filled tank to absolute max, I’ve left a small air bubble since and not had any problems. Flavour I get from this with Riot Squad Salts is unbelievable.

    1. Hi Mark,
      Thanks for your comment on our post and review. Am glad your loving the Argus Pro. It’s good to hear its standing the test of time. I still use mine and have no problems with it. Lots has come out since but this is still a great contender.
      Thanks again for sharing your views.

  7. I’ve been using this specific box for approximately 3 months now, and i was told it has CBD oil capabilities, is that true?

    1. Hi Bobby, thanks for your question.
      Firstly the Argus Pro and almost any other mod/pod can be used for vaping CBD vape juice. More importantly, do NOT vape CBD oil, sometimes referred to as CBD Tincture, this is for oral consumption and NOT for vaping.
      Always only ever vape CBD Vape Juice which is specifically designed for vaping which is suspended in PG/VG.
      Vaping CBD oil (CBD Tincture) is dangerous….Please do NOT try it, only use CBD Vape Juice.

  8. Hi, fairly novice vaper, tried it about 6 years ago as a novelty, had a 4 year break but have come back to it as I enjoy the habit as much as the nicotine as stress relief.
    I’ve mostly used a vaporesso vm stick 18 with an old vivi nova s tank and 50/50 liquids. But as I’ve used it more I’ve noted it’s getting flaky (intermittent firing issues) and also had a tendency to burn. I also had a pipe with a kanga protank (also used on stick batterys)

    So today I grabbed one of these. Initially it shocked me, almost to a “oh crap, what have I done!” level.
    Too hot, too harsh, had me spluttering.

    Your review helped me understand the settings and reassured me about using the lower wattage settings.

    Think I’m going with the 0.15 ohm coil in the kit, at either 5/10 watts.
    I prefer a cooler/smoother vapour (also an mtl vaper so adapting to dtl). Air holes at 30% ish.

    Does that sound like I’m in the righr area?

    I would prefer a more restricted air flow; are any of the other pod options likely to benefit me? I realise I didnt go for an mtl device as such. Do the research.. Hindsight right?

    I hadn’t realised how marginal the flavour was from my old device until I tried this.

    I think I’m over the shock factor and just need to learn rhe device now.

    Thanks for doing such a thorough and well written review.

    1. Hi Chris,
      Thanks for your comment and pleased to hear you’re back vaping and found a setup that you’re enjoying.
      The beauty of airflow and variable wattage does mean you can tailor it to suit your own style of vaping.
      When I first used the Argus Pro I was surprised how good the performance from the coils were even at low wattage.
      I prefer a longer slow draw so had to reduce the power below the minimum recommended for the coils.
      Your settings sound about right for your needs. I always suggest starting off on low power and increasing it till you find your sweet spot.
      Two good MTL kits I’ve used are the Innokin Adept Zlide and the Aspire Zelos 3, both give a good vape but not done a review on them yet. There are smaller MTL pods such as the Drag Nano 2, Vinci Pod, Vinci Q, Innokin MVP pod and Sceptre Tube pod plus the Freemax pods which we’ve reviewed which are also good.
      Thanks again Chris for your nice comments on our review, I appreciate it, always nice to hear our reviews are helpful.

    2. You can get MTL Pods for this set up (PNP MTL Pod, and will need a different coil) I use TR1 1.2ohm.
      this is a lot tighter draw, you can only go up to 15w but for me 12 is a sweet spot and coils last a long time.
      The MTL pods also have the advantage of to burning your lips off!

  9. Hi, I had bookmarked your review, it was good, and I love how you reply to the comments, and I hope more reviews coming from you. Also, I think I might have a problem with mine, though it is minor, the thing is, I have used the 2 occs (coil) that comes with the mod/vape and I bought a relatively cheap occs around $5 for 1 pack (5 pieces), and I’ve tried using 0.2 coils, and my problem is that whenever I fire it as long as what I’m firing it with the 2 occs that comes with the box (which is around 2 seconds max), the 0.2 occs I’ve bought sometimes tastes burnt easily, is it because it’s 0.2? Would love to have a chat regarding about this. Anyways, love from the Philippines.

    1. Hi Alfred, thank you for your nice comments on our review and we appreciate you noticing we reply to comments, we do try. It’s always a pleasure engaging with our readers.
      Sorry to hear you’re having issues with the pack of 0.2 coils you bought. I’ve used the 0.2 coil in the Argus Pro and didn’t have any problems with them. A few things spring to mind though, the pack you purchased may have been counterfeit coils, sadly there are quite a lot about, always buy from a reputable supplier.
      Another thing worth trying is to prime the new coil first before you use it:
      1) Drip a few drops of e-liquid into the wicking ports first.
      2) Fill the pod with e-liquid and leave to stand for 10-15 minutes.
      3) Take a few unpowered draws first to pull e-liquid through the coil.
      4) Set the wattage low (8W) and take a few draws.
      5) Slowly increase the wattage in stages until you reach your ideal power setting.
      All these should help in bedding the coil in and improving its life span. I found with all the Voopoo Pnp coils I vape them UNDER the recommended wattage setting and still get really good results. The 0.2 ohm coil I vape at 18-20W and take a slightly longer draw (3sec).
      Lastly your PG/VG ratio could be a problem if it’s a high VG e-liquid. I normally use 50/50 or 70VG. Too high and the wicking ports may struggle a little to keep up due to the thicker consistency of e-liquid.
      Hope these pointers help. Good luck.

  10. Been using the voopoo Argus for 2 weeks now only after reading this I discovered auto puff, i found the fire button would burn the lips of ye, really happy now with auto vape smooth and dose exactly wat is expected, flavour is really good, my pod dose leak a lot around the rubber seal

    1. Hi Stevie, thanks for your comment. I am glad our review helped you identify all the functions that the Argus Pro has. We do try to cover as much detail as possible when we review a device. As with most vape pods, sadly they are prone to leaking after a little while. Always keep an eye that all the seals and o-rings are in good working order. Thanks again, enjoy your Argus Pro.

    2. I found mine leaks if I fill the tank the absolute max, I now leave a small air bubble when filling and that seems to stop it.

  11. I’m confused when I want to reset the Argus Pro data, when I press power & – at the same time the chip serial code appears and I don’t know what else to do, can you provide a way to reset the data?

    1. Hi Asta, thanks for your question. Pressing the fire and – buttons together will clear the puff counter and data. If you press the fire button and + and – buttons together it will show the chip serial code. Make sure you press the minus button and fire button together only NOT the plus button as well.

  12. Hello.
    I have a question.
    This is my first time, i have vaper. And my first device is argus pro. How much time to take for first time charging before activated and used.

    1. Hi Rey, thank you for your question.
      Your new Argus Pro should come part charged as this is standard with most devices to help stop the battery from becoming drained to quickly.
      I would assume a charge of 30 minutes or so should fully charge your Argus Pro. You can however vape it now if you wish but obviously it wont last too long before the battery will need to be fully charged.
      Always best to fully charge for the first time tho. You can charge while your priming the coil etc so everything will be ready for you to start vaping pretty soon.

    1. Hi Alvin,
      I’ve sent you a detailed email with my thoughts on what you should do. If its sparking then it’s not safe to use. If e-liquid has got inside the mod it could be shorting the battery out. Let it dry out for a couple of days and make sure there is no liquid around the fire button or coil contact pins. If it still does it after drying out dont use it, your safety is far more important. Dispose of it and pick up a new one.

  13. Nice review. Actually i am quite satisfied with my Argus Pro. However, I am having trouble lately with its operation. It automatically turn off after 2 puffs even if it still full charge. I switch it on again and after two puffs, it automatically turn off again. How can I resolve this matter?
    Please reply.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Bong,
      Thanks for your nice comment about our review and sorry to hear your having issues with the Argus Pro turning off after a couple of draws.
      We’ve not had this problem with our Argus Pro but have heard some folk having similar issues with other Voopoo pods.
      I can only think of a couple of possible causes that may cause this issue. 1. Try replacing the coil,it maybe shorting out or drawing too much current which shuts the mod down. 2. Clean the pod contacts and coil and clean away any e-liquid seepage as this may be causing the problem. 3. Reset the puff counter to zero.
      Hopefully this may help. Failing this, it could be a software issue or the beginning of the mod becoming faulty.
      Hope you manage to resolve the issue. Please do let us know how you get on.

  14. Hi …
    I’m using argus pro for four months tel now and recently it automatic turned off after two puffs … what could be the problem …???
    Super great review by the way.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Ehab,
      Thanks for your nice comment regarding our review.
      With regards to your problem, it’s quite difficult to pinpoint the issue remotely.
      Is it completely dead I.e. no display? Do you have charge in the battery? Is there power in the battery but wont fire?
      Without knowing these things it’s hard to say what the exact problem is.
      Try putting the Argus pro on charge to make sure it has some level of charge in it. Make sure the device is turned on and is not locked. 5 clicks to turn on and fire button and + button to lock/unlock. Make sure you’ve selected auto draw or fire button and try vaping. If you can select different modes and it has a display but still wont fire it may be a worn coil, if this is the case then try another coil.
      Please let us know what your Argus pro is displaying so we can try and help you to get it working again.

    1. The Argus Pro pod relies on the 3 small magnets at the base of the pod to make contact with the metal plate in the mod to hold it in place. It’s also recessed by about 10mm into the mod so shouldn’t fall off.

      If the circular metal plate in the mod is not clean, the magnets won’t make proper contact. Clean the plate and this should improve the contact and hold the pod more securely.

  15. my argus pro is stuck on being on .no buttons are working and its not turning off. please help me.. i cant use my vape now

    1. Hi Jeshua,
      This sounds strange. Have you locked the device? Press the fire button and + button to unlock it. Alternatively press the fire button 5 times to switch it off. Does the display change when you press any of the buttons? Only other things I can suggest would be to put it on charge and see what the display does then try turning it off.
      Please let us know how you get on.

      1. Argus pro saya macet. Di layar tertulis ‘activated’ dan tidak bisa di matikan atau pun digunakan, saya sudah mencoba menekan tombol power 5x tetapi gagal, saya juga mencoba menekan tombol buka kunci, dan sudah coba mengejarnya tapi layar tidak berubah, tolong bantu saya

        Translated message: My Argus pro is stuck. On the screen it says ‘activated’ and can’t be turned off or used, I’ve tried pressing the power button 5x but it failed, I’ve also tried pressing the unlock button, and I’ve tried chasing it but the screen doesn’t change, please help me

        1. Hi Mahesa, we’ve not seen this condition before. Something has gone wrong with your mod. It’s possible that eliquid has got inside the device and is causing this problem. The fire button should allow you to scroll through the screen options.
          Because it’s an internal battery, you may have to let the battery discharge until the Argus Pro shuts down. Once that happens, hopefully when you recharge it again it starts working correctly. Good luck and hope it works for you.

    1. Hi Jason,
      Thanks for your question.

      Glad your liking the Argus Pro, we still feel its a really good device. Unfortunately, most pods, even the Argus Pro does tend to seep E-liquid around the base of the coil into the mod terminals. We’ve not noticed it happen that quick, it tends to happen more when the coil is reaching the end of its life.

      Hopefully its not pouring out, just seeping. I normally keep a check on the pod recess just to make sure the e-liquid doesn’t build up. Normally it’s just a quick wipe and its good to go.

      If it persists, you could try changing the coil to see if it improves.

    1. Hi Rulz.
      Thanks for your question. I’m not quite sure if you mean the Voopoo PnP coil range that the Argus Pro takes or your’re referring to the type of cotton used in the PnP RBA coil.

      The coils I’ve tried in the Argus Pro are the R1, TM1, TM2, VM1, VM3, VM4, VM5 and VM6. All the coils have been really impressive and I’ve not had any issues with the coils burning out prematurely. I usually get a couple of weeks or more out of the coils. If your coil are buring after a couple of days then it may be your chain vaping or using too higher a wattage for the coils or not priming them before use.

      Take a look at our https://vapinghardware.com/how-to-get-the-most-out-of-your-vape-coil-how-to-prime-a-coil/. This may help prolong the life of your coils.I usually bed my new coils in by starting off at a low wattage for a few draws, then increasing it in increments of a few watts each time with a few draws until i reach my ideal setting.

      If your talking about cotton for wicking in a re-buildable, then my go to cotton is either Muji pads or Cotton Bacon.

      Hope this helps

  16. After using the SMOK Novo 4 for several weeks while shopping for a replacement for my old system.I decided to grab this and I’m shocked at the flavor production. I’m more of a flavor connoisseur than a cloud chaser but I think this gives the best of bother worlds. Definitely removed the lanyard ring with a pair of pliers. It was super easy it came right out. Adding a locking mechanism for the lanyard ring is probably the only thing I would change about this mod at the moment.

    1. Hi Katt,

      Thanks for your comment. Glad to hear your impressed with and enjoying the Argus Pro. I’m still using mine and agree, the flavor and vapor is very impressive. The PnP coils really do perform and I was shocked that they perform at such low wattage too. The pod mod is a really nice design as well.

      Am finding the same on the Drag X Plus and Vinci 2 and Vinci X2 pod mods. Review being written as we speak. Voopoo certainly have hit the mark with these coils and are producing some very good pods, mods and coils.

      The lanyard ring was a bit of a white elephant but as you say, easy to take off. I took mine off after a couple of weeks use.

      Happy vaping and continue enjoying the Argus Pro.

    1. Hi Paula,
      Thank you for your question.
      It’s covered in the review under the Argus Pro Functionality section.
      There are 4 screen modes, shown by the first 4 photos under the Mode of Operation. These are the different modes that you can select by pressing the fire button 3 times in quick succession. Each 3 presses of the fire button takes you to the next mode option as shown in the photos in the review.
      Auto puff mode is available in both Smart (S) and RBA (R) modes.
      Keep clicking the fire button 3 times till the screen shows the “A&P” setting which is shown under the wattage. “P” on its own is Fire button activation. “A&P” is the Auto Puff option.
      Hope this helps Paula

  17. so i bought this mod few days ago (I’m new to the vaping world ) , but I had to recharge 2 to 3 times per day , i went back to the seller as I thought it has a defective battery (I have been using it on 35-40 watts) , the seller took almost 1 hour explaining to me that it is a normal thing because this mod have only 1 battery at the capacity of 3000 mah … should i change this mod or keep it?

    1. Hi Hantout, thanks for your question.
      The 3000mAh internal battery is a pretty good capacity for the size of the pod. 35-40 watts is not excessive but depending on your vaping frequency I would expect to have to recharge it to get a full days vaping. I vape my Argus Pro around 10W and normally get a day out of it before re-charging.
      The Argus Pro is a good pod and does have one of the best battery capacities. It is common with any mod/pod to have to re-charge it at some time during the day.
      If you like the device I would keep it and maybe reduce your wattage slightly to see if that helps.

        1. It depends who stocks it there. A quick google search on your local stores will tell you how much and if it’s in stock. Alternatively you can search if any overseas places will ship you one to Lebanon.

  18. I am very impressed with my Argus Pro. My battery does last close to 2 days. The price is very reasonable and it comes with a hard plastic carrying box. I do like the idea of Argus Pro having a puff counter and also has the feature of counting how many seconds It takes per hit.

    1. Hi Shaun,
      Glad to hear you’re pleased with the performance of the Argus Pro and very happy with it.
      It certainly does tick all the boxes. Without a doubt one of the really good pods on the market today.
      I’m still vaping at 8W on it and love it. The coils last ages and I like the instant airflow control too.
      Definitely a big thumbs up from me!

    1. Hi Al,

      Thanks for your nice comment, glad you liked our review and found it useful. The Argus Pro is a really nice pod mod, am still using it on a daily basis.

    1. Hi Jandre, thank you for your comment. I indicated in the battery performance section of the review I was getting a days vaping from a full charge. Even though I am a medium to heavy vaper, I do vape this pod at low wattage (8W-10W). If you’re vaping style is at higher wattage, this will reduce the time the battery lasts. I would imagine if you’re vaping around 30W-40W you will have to re-charge to get a full day. Hope this helps.
