If you are active and appreciate good couples, then the GeekVape Aegis 100W is exactly what you need. A shockproof, waterproof, dustproof box mod, a real wap-armored car!
No wonder it was called Aegis, in English it means protection, protection and aegis. As you can see, GeekVape swung at the very Zeus, because the aegis was called the mythical cape of the Greek god, who constantly defended him in all his troubles. In our case, we have box-mode, manufactured according to one of the most modern injection molding technologies LSR, which by characteristics is not inferior to the aegis of Zeus.
But is everything as cool as the manufacturer claims? Does the device withstand the loads that it should? Is it worthy to wear the title of aegis, or is it all advertising stunts? It’s time to find out. Go!
To say that this box-fashion looks stylish and solid – it’s nothing to say. Smooth lines, harmonious combination of leather, silicone and metal, perfectly matched colors – all this looks very cool, expensive and brutal! Aegis is a good taste detector, it’s just impossible to get lost in the crowd.
Also worth noting is the convenient form of the button “Fire”. It’s made as a trigger (for real wipe-snipers), although the normal light switch also reminds you, so everything will depend on your mood. The device itself fits comfortably in the hand and looks very cool.
The color solution of our specimen is called Silver & Brown (silver and brown). Of course, there are many other options, but today we are talking about this black-brown-silver handsome man. Black color is a rubberized part of the body (Soft-touch), brown – leather, and silver – an aluminum insert. As for the materials of manufacture, this is a combination of plastic, silicone, aluminum and a little stainless steel. In addition, the metal bracket and rubberized coating perform not only an aesthetic, but also a protective function (protection from shocks and falls). It would seem that everything is too different, but the designers of Aegis managed to combine everything and create a very stylish and holistic image.
Packing and equipment
Geekvape Aegis is packed in a standard box of black color with a picture of box-fashion and the name of the model. Also indicated here is the maximum output power of the device (100 W), the format of the batteries and its main chips: water resistance and shockproof. On the reverse side, of course, there is a scratch code, so that there is not a single doubt about the originality of the goods. Also for this purpose, special seal-stickers are made, which are easy to determine the undesirable opening of the goods. Inside there is one more box, but already without any pictures and inscriptions (only the name of the model), it is inside it that the most important thing is hidden:
– Aegis 100W Box Mod with battery 26650 inside;
– adapter for a 18650 battery;
– User’s Manual.
As you can see, not too generous equipment. But everything is necessary, so you can soar, and this is important!
GeekVape Aegis 100W runs on 1 battery of 26650 or 18650 format (the adapter is included). The battery compartment is located at the bottom of the case, it is securely fixed with a cover. It is worth noting that it is not easy to open this lid, first you need to raise the ring handle and turn it counter-clockwise three times. Or, insert the coin into the notch and also scroll. Presence of variants pleases, after all everyone can choose that method which to him more convenient. On the other side of the lid is an o-ring, its function is maximum sealing. Plus, there must be a marking “+”, “-” for correctly installing the battery.
The maximum output power of the device, as we have said, is 100 W. Not too much in the context of modern waking, but not a little. As for the fee, then I have no complaints, everything works fine. The minimum resistance is 0.05 Ohm. Response time to the button “Fire” – 0,015 sec. The firmware can be updated with a USB cable (the USB connector is hidden under the cover at the top of the case), but it’s unfortunately not possible to charge the device in this way. On the connector site there is a metal connector on three screws with a spring-loaded brass pin.
The main feature of the Geekvape Aegis 100W is its resistance to dust, water and shock. According to the manufacturer’s data, the device can withstand depths of up to 1 m, but according to the experiments of inspired and inquisitive vapers, it can be said that it can work even after 1.5 m. With regard to protection against impacts (protection against physical impacts according to military standard MIL STD 810G-516.6) , the device well withstands most of the light falls, but if you ride it, the chances of survival, of course, will not be much.
The control panel is represented by a screen and the buttons “Fire”, “+” and “-“. The box-mode is activated by pressing the “Fire” button five times. The display shows all the necessary information: power, resistance, battery charge, amount of delay, etc. To control, the buttons “Fire”, “+” and “-” are used.
