What a little cutie pie this is! I love the Camo Blue! You get everything you need and happily they included both pods in the kit (1.2ohm and 0.6ohm). The kit is for MTL and RDTL specifically so I was looking forward to testing this out, especially the MTL, you all know I like a tight draw! As you can see from the picture, it also comes with a lanyard if that's your kind of thing. In the box you also get a quick start guide, a brief but to the point instruction card which is handy for new users, but it still comes with a manual too.
Well it’s a stocky little monster, rugged yet cute, and it feels great in the hand.
In true Aegis style, you have the padded rear section, the rubberised section, and the shiny screwed in frame structure. It looks lush but those tempting shiny sections are fingerprint magnets. The screen provides everything you would need in my opinion: battery life, wattage, volts, coil resistance, plus the puff counter (irrelevant as I don’t use it, but some do). Above the padded section, you have the slide airflow control which is very effective, and on the other side above the screen is two holes for the lanyard to be fixed on to. The USB C charging port is on the base and is covered by the splash proof seal. The power button sits perfectly on the side of the device, it’s a nice size, feels textured, and is shaped perfectly for thumb fire, which is what I tended to do. You can fire with your finger too, but the thumb was comfier for me.
How do the functions work then?........
- Double click to lock/unlock – this will not fire when locked
- Triple click to adjust power, you will see the watts flash
- 5 clicks for on and off
- Hold the fire button down whilst off to give you the software version
- 4 clicks to clear puff counter
The power will change automatically when you switch the pods to the recommended wattage for that pod, I like this as this stops you from accidentaly burning out the coil. The wattage goes up to 30W in increments of 1 and round robins back to 5W.
It is super easy and my god, is that fire button reactive! No matter how quick you are, that little button fires off instantly.
As mentioned above, Geekvape include two pods with this little kit, a 1.2ohm and a 0.6ohm, you can tell the difference as they have different colour O-rings and the resistance along with wattages are detailed on the base of the pod. The pods are completely clear, and have a snap off mouthpiece giving you access to the fill port, which is covered by a silicone bung. I would like to have seen GeekVape move away from them and use a hinge or just a thin membrane over the fill hole instead. If you have long fingernails, removing the bung is fine, but it can be fiddly if you’re a nail biter!
The pod fits in nice and snug and there are some magnets, but you still have to push it in to properly fit it. The main thing that I am not so keen on is the mouthpiece, it is a little wide for MTL for me, you kind of get used it to it it's not my preference at all. It is good for RDTL though, but a smaller duck bill or round thin bore 510 would have been better and would have helped to tighten the MTL draw.
I have tried both pods but spent most of my time using the 1.2ohm as that is my personal preference. It's easy to fill, you can see your liquid level through the window and the coils wicked away nicely. The flavour is good, GeekVape do make some great coils and that will come as no surprise, but for me the airflow was just slightly too loose. If I rate it in the DD-Drawometer, I would say with the airflow closed off, it’s a 3 but a warm vape. Opening up the airflow to a quarter is more comfortable and I would say that takes it to a 3 to 4 on the meter. For RDTL using the 0.6ohm coil, I think this is where it comes to life a little more, wide open gives it a nice airy restrictive draw, and closing it down to half gives you a loose MTL.
- Looks super cute with great colours
- Tasty flavour
- Good airflow adjustment
- Takes an hour to charge
- Mouthpiece not ideal for MTL
- Throw away pods
- Overall 8/10
- Ease of use: 8.5/10
- Flavour: 8.5/10
- Design/Quality: 7.5/10
- Draw/Vape: 7/10
The GeekVape Aegis Nano kit would suit a RDTL or a MTL vaper who prefers a looser draw. It is a great little stealthy kit to put in your pocket if you don’t want to carry around a huge cloud chucker! It would also suit a new starter as you get a bit of everything with this kit.
Thank you to TECC for sending this out for review! You can purchase from them directly for £21.67, not a bad price for a tough little device.
