Hello and welcome back to another review. Here we have the absolute tank that is the Geekvape Aegis Max! I was very excited to get my hands on one of these, so without further ado, let’s get straight into it!
Geekvape Aegis Max Specs
Mod Size: 93 x 46.3 x 34mm
Battery: Single 20700/21700 (or 18650 with adapter)
Temperature range: 100-315°C / 200-600°F
Resistance range: 0.05-3ohm
Dust resistant, water-resistant and shock-resistant
Micro USB – 1.5A / 5V charge rate
What I Used
For the purpose of this review, I used the trusty Blotto RTA from Dovpo in collab with Youtube vape reviewer, The Vaping Bogan. Installed in said RTA I have some Coilology Twisted NI80 dual coils (with a resistance of 0.2ohm) with Cotton Bacon. For Juice, I went with the 70VG/30PG Banana Custard from our new Winny’s Range!
The Mod itself is a cracking piece of kit; with its design and look, it’s a little nod to the Aegis Solo but stands a little taller, and instead of taking a single 18650 battery, it’ll take a 21700 or 20700 battery. 18650 if you use the adapter which comes with the kit. To install the battery into your mod, all you have to do is unscrew the battery door on the bottom of the mod, this is a lot better than the catch doors we’ve seen on the Aegis Legend or the Ageis X, I’ve never really trusted catch doors to be fair and the threads on the Max are smooth and easy to screw/unscrew. As with standard for the Aegis series, the Aegis Max is also made from silicone and alloy materials which makes this mod IP67 certified, staying true to the series of the Aegis.
Features and settings
The Aegis Max comes with an array of features which suit all vapers, below is all the features and how to set them up as well as how to use the device.
How to operate
Turn on/off – Press the fire button five times
Adjust Wattage/Temp – Use the + and – buttons
Lock Wattage/Temp/Settings – Press and hold the + and – Button
Menu – Three Clicks of the fire button
Settings and Programs
Here I will talk about the different settings the mod has
Power – This is your standard setting which most people are familiar with, you can adjust your wattage according to the wattage range of the coil with a max output of 100w
Temp – Temp Control (TC) is the setting which allows you to run your tank depending on your coil material. you can choose from; Nichrome (NI) Stainless Steel (SS) and Titanium (TI). There is also a TCR mode which stands for Temperature Coefficient of Resistance, What this means is that the mod will take into account the resistance and material of the coil. if you are like me and this still goes over your head, less resistance, more heat at a faster rate, ill be honest, when I looked this up, I think I read it about four times to understand how this works!
VPC – VPC which stands for Variable Power Control. This is a sort of curve setting which allows you to set how the coil behaves when in use. An example of this is if you vape at 50w, you can set the points to start from 30w and work your way up or start from 70w and work your way down as a sort of pre-heat mode.
Bypass – Bypass mode is where the device will work depending on two factors; The resistance of the coils and the voltage of the battery, in short, the lower resistance and more charge on your battery you have, the more vapour production your tank will do. it works similar to a mechanical mod but the bonus of this is that you’ve got the safety features of a regulated mod!
Pros and Cons
As with every mod and device, there’s pros and cons to each. I’m happy to report that the pros definitely outweigh the cons, ill list them below
- IP67 Certified – Considering this is what the Aegis Series is all about, it’s good to see they have stuck with the core principles of the mod series.
- Takes 18650/20700/21700 batteries – With a good selection of batteries that can be used, it doesn’t exclude anyone from using this mod.
- Multiple Settings – This is handy for those who prefer different settings to standard wattage mode like myself.
- Easy to use – If I can use it, anyone can!
- Comfortable to hold – With the use of silicone, it makes this mod comfortable to hold and doesn’t feel bulky despite the materials used
- Battery door handle – Although i wouldn’t be overly concerned about this con, i would feel those who may have sensitive skin, the handle might irritate your fingers but as I said, this is a very minor con.
In conclusion, I am extremely impressed with this mod, it has everything you expect from a series like this. Geekvape has always outdone themselves with there hardware, you only need to look at devices like the Blade Mod which is a dual 21700 mod or the Ammit RTA as well. If you are looking for a single battery mod, I would highly recommend this to anyone! Click here to get yours now.
Thanks for reading.
