What is Included in Your Purchase?
Even before I begin to list out the purchase inclusions, I would like to first throw light on its company. VooPoo, the e cig brand that manufactures this e cigarette is based out of China.
This brand came into existence in the year 2010. VoPoo is therefore a seasoned player in the e cig niche. It has delivered several best-selling vape kits including the Argus, Drag and Alpha series.
Now, coming back to the main topic – the ‘box inclusions’.
Well, these are the items I see when I unbox the Argus GT2 Mod from VooPoo:
>>> One Argus GT2 Mod Manufactured by VooPoo
>>> One Type C Cable for Fast Charging
>>> One User Booklet for Ease of Operation
So, only three items were delivered.
Had I paid $30.00 more, perhaps these additional items would have been sent as well:
>>> One MAAT Sub Ohm Vape Tank
>>> One TPP-DM2 Coil with 2 Ohm Resistance Level
>>> One TPP-DM3 Coil with 1.5 Ohm Resistance Level
The question is, ‘do I really need these additional goodies?’ The answer to this question is ‘No- not at all.’ So, it is best to save $30 and get the just the 3 items when you open the box.
What are the Specifications of the Argus GT2 Box Mod?
Here is a fleeting glimpse of what I experienced the first time I opened the box:
Compact & Easy to Carry:
The vape Mod is compact and easy to carry. The GT2 Mod is 9 cm in length, 5.4 cm in breadth and 2.9 cm in height.
Solid with a Superior Grip:
The body of this VooPoo Mod is made from zinc alloy. It also boasts of a leather grip for superior handling.

Robust Voltage Level:
The voltage of this vape devise starts at ‘0’ and can go all the way up till ‘12’ volts.
Gene.TT 2.0 Chip:
This Mod is fortified with Gene.TT 2.0 chip. This is a special chip that helps balance the power of the two batteries by optimizing their energy levels. This chip also aids fast charging of the batteries.
Customized Resistance Range:
The electrical resistance of the Argus GT2 Mod is diverse. It starts at 0.05 ohm and goes all the way up till 3.0 ohm. Hence, smokers can easily customize the resistance as per their vaping needs.
You can drop this Mod onto the floor without worrying about the devise getting damaged. The Argus GT2 from VooPoo can also be drowned in water for well over 25 minutes and it shall still light-up.
Twin 18650 Batteries:
This vape Mod has two batteries (and not a single one). They boast of a height of 65mm and have an 18 mm diameter. Small, compact yet powerful, the twin 18650 batteries in Argus GT2 can enable you to enjoy a super-charged vaping experience.
What are the Various Modes of Argus GT2 Mod?
Argus GT2 vape Mod is loaded with features. It makes use of the latest technological features to make your vaping experience grand indeed. One such feature is in the form of “modes”.
Here is a quick look at how these “modes” help you take complete control over the devise:
Four Modes to Customize Your Vape:
When you start to vape a Mod, you expect it to behave in a particular manner. This in turn implies that you want technology to grant you control over your vape devise.
Well, this is asking for too much. Nonetheless, it is quite possible to get there.
Here is a quick look at how you can accomplish this task with Argus GT2 Mod:
The Temperature Control Mode:
This is the first mode that enables you to take control of your vape. These are with special regards to adjust the device’s temperature as per the coils you use.
The coils that can be fortified to this mode are stainless steel, nickel and titanium. While kanthal and nichrome coils do exist, these do not permit temperature controls to be pre-established (owing to their coil type).
You can absolutely maintain the flavour and vapor volume without worrying about dry hits. This is because the temperature within the Mod is not allowed to either increase or decrease.
Temperature control enables you to avoid dry hits. It also enhances the battery life of your devise. The overall shelf-life of the coil shall be increased. Finally, you shall enjoy vape that is consistent and even.
The SMART Mode:
Argus GT2 Mod has a special SMART mode. Using this mode, your device is able to gauge the resistance level of your tank or atomizer.
After that has been calculated, the SMART mode shall then indicate the most appropriate wattage level for your devise. You can then make changes to the device’s current wattage.
This shall enable you to get the best flavour and vapor volume with each single puff. Removing the tank of the GT2 Mod makes no difference to these settings.
The moment you reconnect the tank back to the mod, the device shall read the previous wattage settings automatically. So, you no longer need to re-adjust the wattage each time the tank is re-connected to the devise.
The Rebuildable Atomizer Mode:
This is yet another mode that enables you to take complete control over your vape Mod. Using this mode, you can bypass the setting of the SMART mode. Basically, you override the previous settings via this mode.
The resistance levels of each coil are utilized to their optimal potential via this mode. This is why this VooPoo Mod is preferred by smokers who prefer to enjoy a fully-customized vaping experience.
The Turbo Mode:
In this particular mode, you have the ability to boost the overall potential of the devise. Simply put, you can boost the power of the Argus Mod.
When you opt for the turbo mode, you increase the power delivery. This in turn implies that your vapor volume gets an instant boost. The GENE.TT 2.0 Chip enables you to achieve this aim.
Sneak Peak into the New U-Force L-Tank?
The UForce tank of the GT2 is perhaps the best in its segment. It has a “top to bottom” airflow mechanism. There is no leakage as it is made leak-proof in nature.
The L-Shaped tank of the GT2 Mod is also fortified with triple airflow mechanism. This in turn implies 60% reduction in lost airflow.
The flow of air is also evenly balanced within the devise. The PnP coils function in a two-in-one fashion. The design of this tank is heat-proof in nature.
The tank is fortified with features that enable you to draw voluminous clouds of water vapor. The flavor is also provided to you at its fullest potential using the latest technology.
What are the Main Features of VooPoo Argus GT2 Mod?
Listed below are the brownie points (as per my observation):
The Powerful Performance & Latest Features
You also need to understand that the powerful feature of this devise is its diverse wattage range. Over here, you have the advantage of taking the wattage level all the way up till 200 watts.
As far as the strength of this device is concerned then, it is sturdy enough to withstand brute force with utmost ease. In simpler words, you can easily hope to drop this devise without bothering to scratch the surface (let alone break it into tiny fragments).
You can also submerge it in water for almost half an hour and still the Mod shall be working just fine.
Argus GT2 by VooPoo has been given the IP68 rating. This is the highest rating provided to vape devises with special regards to their security features.
Ease of Usage & Huge Tank Capacity:
The top-filling mechanism enables you to refill the Mod rather easily. Over here, you do not have to disconnect the tank from the vape devise. Simply open the top and refill the e-liquid.
Besides being convenient, the top-fill design mechanism stops the e-liquid from leaking. With the aid of the 510 threading, you are able to secure the tank to the Mod easily.
The Intelligent Chip (GENE.TT 2.0):
Argus Mod is fortified with an intelligent chipset. With the aid of this chip, you are able to boost the overall performance of this vape devise.
In simpler words, you become capable of increasing the overall vape volume.
Here are the salient features of this special chip:
>>> It enables the GT2 Mod to deliver power in a liner fashion. So, fluctuations in power are completely avoided here.
>>> This chip enables you to gain complete control over your devise.
>>> You have the ability to customize your vape owing to the numerus modes available here. I have discussed these modes in the above sub-header.
>>> The GENE.TT 2.0 helps boost the vapor volume of the Mod. So, you end up enjoying thicker vapor without having to pay higher.
>>> Finally, this ‘special chip’ helps lengthen the vape duration considerably.
Vapor Consistency & Flawless ‘User Control’:
The overall design of the Argus GT2 Mod is such that it enables flawless performance. The special chip within this vape devise ensures that glitches of all sorts are negated completely.
The GENE.TT.2.0 chip offers complete control to the end user. By enabling flawless wattage control of the MOD, you are capable of delivering robust control of the devise.
The wattage is controlled automatically as the chip reads the resistance levels of different wires within the coil. This happens when you use the temperature control mode.
Argus GT2 Mod Lights Up at Warp Speed:
All it takes is a fraction of a second to light-up this VooPoo Mod. To be exact, it takes 0.25 seconds to ignite this devise. So, you can easily hope to start vaping in seconds (at your chosen wattage).
Hence, the clouds of vapor are not compromised. In fact, you get to experience the exact flavour that your e-juice has been fortified with. No more burnt taste or low vapor volume.
Twin Batteries Ensure Longer Vape:
As this VooPoo Mod contains 2 batteries, it generates tremendous power. When both the 18650 batteries are fired-up, they tend to prolong the vape period.
Hence, you are able to relish a longer vape volume with each individual puff.
Four Helpful Setting Options:
@ The first mode is termed as a SMART mode. It helps establish the most suitable wattage as per the current coil resistance.
@ The second mode is termed temperature control mode. It helps control the temperature within the coils. This is ideally suited for Nickle and Stainless Steel and Titanium coils.
@ The RBA mode is the third option in GT2 Mod. It helps establish the wattage of your choice.
@ Last but not the least you have the ‘turbo mode’. It tends to super-charges the wattage. This is for a short duration. After the initial boost, the wattage is down to normal.
Superior Security Features:
>>> When the gap between puffs exceeds a few seconds then, the GT2 Mod shuts down automatically.

>>> I found the gate of the charging port to be on the stiffer side. I need to use considerable force in order to close or open it.

>>> Temperature Coefficient Resistance is amiss in this Mod.
How to Troubleshoot VoopPoo Argus GT2 Mod?
While this vape Mod is relatively easy to handle, sometimes, issues with regards to its practical application may crop-up.
I have devised the solution to the most common issues faced by the users of Argus vape devise.
I have answered these in simple ‘question to answer’ format.
So, here we go:
I just Unboxed my GT 2 Mod. Why is it Not Starting even when I Press the Firing Button?
Many ‘first time’ users tend to falter while depressing the ‘firing’ button and yet, the Mod does not ‘start’. There are 2 main reasons for the same:
Reason & Solution # 1:
The vape devise is shipped to the end user in a ‘locked’ format. The lock is placed onto the devise to ensure that safety of the end user.
In order to start vaping, you need to first ‘unlock’ the devise. For this very purpose, you should press the ‘firing’ button 5 times over (in quick succession).
The moment you do so, your Mod’s screen shall be lit-up displaying “VooPoo” (the logo of the brand). This is an indicator that the Mod is ready to be used.
Reason & Solution # 2:
The second most common reason why your devise does not start is because it is not charged. When the battery of your vape devise is drained, you cannot vape.
Simply make use of the charging cable. Plug one end to the electric supply and the other to your Mod. Wait for about 50 minutes before pressing the ‘fire’ button.
I have just received an Argus Mod and the e-Juice Leaks. How can I Fix this Leak?
If your e-liquid is leaking from your Argus MOD then, it is highly likely that you have not followed the instructions in the guidebook (that comes along with the purchase).
There could be a few scenarios for the same.
Scenario # 1:
Check your devise for any breakage. It is possible that you bumped your vape devise onto a hard object resulting in its breakage.
Scenario # 2:
It is quite possible that you placed your MOD into a freezer. When you do so, the body of your vape devise (especially the plastic based material) may crack.
Scenario # 3:
When you refill the spent juice into your Argus GT2 Mod, make sure that you follow the filling instructions. Overfilling the devise’s chamber leads to leakage of e-liquid. So, never fill beyond the maximum mark.
Scenario # 4:
Another reason for the e-juice leakage could be leaving the devise ‘stowed away’ for a prolonged time period. So, if you leave your e-liquid filled vape devise for a few months, leakage is common.
This is because the e-juice packed within the Mod shall damage the storage chamber – thereby leading to cracks.
Scenario # 5:
It has also been noticed that e-liquid tends to leak when you are unable to secure the coil onto the vape devise securely. It is a ‘snug-fit’.
When that snug-fit does not happen, you are unable to maintain a secure fit. As a result, the e-juice leaks. So, push the coil firmly in order to help it achieve a ‘perfect fit’.
Scenario # 6:
Extremes in temperature are also to be blamed for your Argus Mod leakages. If you leave your vape device under direct sunlight then, the e-juice would expand (owing to molecular expansion).
Likewise, if you place your devise in freezing conditions then again, the molecules within the e-liquid expand. This again leads to the vape chamber cracking under pressure.
Scenario # 7:
In case you are carrying a vape devise (filled with e-juice) onto an airplane then, the high atmospheric pressure may lead to leakages.
Hence, you should avoid taking the devise onto an airplane. If you have no other choice then, do not fill the Argus 2 with e-juice. simply carry the Mod without the e-juice.
Scenario # 8:
The last and final scenario that I can think of is incorrect vaping. This in turn implies that you are not inhaling the water vapor in the most appropriate manner.
In simpler words, if you inhale way too firmly then, it is quite possible that the e-juice is lured into the airflow compartment. This leads to it leaking.
So, inhale slowly and the leakage would never happen.
Is it Really Worth Buying?
The easy to navigate user interface backed with a chic design and robust build quality makes the Argus GT 2 kit an ideal vape devise for enthusiastic vapers.
The inclusion of the GENE.TT 2.0 chip is an added feather in its cap. What attracts me most towards this vape devise is its high capacity tank. The ‘direct to lung’ draw is ideal to please the pallet of serious smokers.
I also like the free-flow manner in which the air flows through the tank. This makes vaping this devise a super-thrilling experience.
The only issue that I am facing is with special regards to the port door. I feel that it takes a lot of effort to close the door. I also find an issue with most modes (as they make the devise shake) apart from the TCR mode.
Overall, I am pleased with the product. It is definitely better than most of its competitors available in the market today.
