    Aegis Max 100w Kit.

    Geekvape was founded in 2015, in recent years it has made practically all types of vaping products, selling more than 13 million pieces worldwide between mods and tanks.
    Part of this great success certainly goes to the Aegis model which with its fame of indestructible mod has now reached its eleventh version.

    The new Max is powered by a single 21700 battery, the kit includes an adapter for 18650 cells and the excellent Tank Zeus Sub Ohm. Among the main features of the Aegis Max Kit I immediately noticed that this version also maintains IP-67 certification, resistance to impact, water and dust.

    Enjoy the reading.

    The cardboard packaging for this Sample may not be the final one.

    On the front we find the Logo and the writing Geek Knows better!
    At the rear we find the thanks from GeekVape for purchasing their product (Sample in my case), also some features are listed such as high durability, the use of mesh coil, the presence of the AS chipset, finally we find the address of the manufacturer and the inevitable logos and brands.

    For those who don't know how an Aegis is made; the exterior is made of shockproof rubber, with a faux leather handle and a removable and replaceable metal front panel by unscrewing the four torx screws.
    The couplings between the various materials have maintained the high quality of the previous Aegis, the effort of GeekVape has been to further improve the finishes and every little detail.

    The 1.5A charging socket is protected by the effective IP67 watertight rubber cap.
    Personally I always reload with an external charger, I prefer to do so with any mod to not unnecessarily strain the circuit.
    Having said that, I always recommend everyone to use external chargers.

    The Geekvape Aegis Max has a spring-loaded 510 pin, the threads are sliding, allow you to screw / unscrew any atomizer, the cup is screwed to the frame by 3 Torx screws and has a special anti-scratch processing, has a huge useful diameter of 30 mm, ideal for those who love extra large tank.

    8.jpg

    The lid of the battery door is waterproof, the threads are good, but it is hard enough to unscrew, this is due to the waterproof characteristics that the device must respect, through the handle integrated in the screw cap and the tool supplied, there you can help sometimes.

    The battery compartment is marked on the bottom by the positive pole, the negative pole is located inside the cover.

    Many are still fond of 18650 cells, so GeekVape has equipped the kit with a specific adapter, I still prefer to use the 21700 which guarantee more vaping autonomy. The Aegis Max remains handy and light even with the 21700.

    In the front, starting from the top, there is the Fire button, the 0.96 “screen and the plus and minus adjustment buttons. These new buttons are different from the previous ones, I find them more beautiful, less protruding and better integrated in the line.

    11.jpg

    Ultimately the Aegis Max as it reminds us of this image is made to last, in the hand you immediately notice its robustness.

    12.jpg

    How Aegis Max works:
    Five clicks on the Fire to turn on / off. To lock / unlock the mod, simultaneously press the Up / Down adjustment buttons.

    To increase the brightness of the screen press the Fire and Up button simultaneously, to decrease the brightness press Fire and Down simultaneously, it works on a scale from 0% to 100%.

    Stealth mode on / off: press the Fire button simultaneously with the Up / Down buttons for 1 second. Stealth mode also locks the Up / Down buttons.

    To enter the menu with the mod unlocked, press the fire button three times, to change the mode use the Up / Down scroll keys.
    Available modes: VW, TC-NI, TC-SS, TC-TI, TC-TCR, VPC, Bypass
    To exit the menu, long press the Fire button and wait five seconds.

    Zeus Sub Ohm Tank:
    The Geekvape zeus x now flanked by the new x Mesh version, the first one has been out for a while and RTA fans have got to know it, realizing how easy it is to regenerate without so many complications, thanks to the suction system superior that prevents losses by making this operation simple even for the novice.

    The Zeus Sub-Ohm is even simpler thanks to the same anti-leakage system and the use of prefabricated coils.

    14.jpg

    Here we can see all the pieces that make up the Zeus Sub-Ohm Tank, the central trunk, the Top Cap, the drip-tip, the deck, the coil, the air regulation ring and the 5Ml Bubble glass.

    15.jpg

    The Top cap has an internal o'ring to hold the drip tip.
    The closure of the top-cap is the same and effective of the zeus-x, in fact it takes just half a turn to open / close, thanks to the interlocking system through the two teeth placed on the atomizer body and the respective slots on the bottom side of the top cap, the refill buttonholes are abundant.

    Also in this image we can see the zeus logo, the three large white o'ring, two of which guarantee the seal to the Pyrex glass and one guarantee the tightness of the air adjustment ring, one of the two eyelets of the airflow (Same large dimensions as those of the Zeus X RTA) the two large eyelets communicating with the top air-flow and laterally the holes for the passage of the liquid for the coil are also visible

    16.jpg

    With a simple press we will insert our coil, taking care that the fins of the coil itself go into the two slots visible in the photo.

    Detail of the bottom of the deck with the two gold-plated pins that will make contact with the coil.

    The 510 pin is gold-plated and is quite protruding, always on the bottom of the atomizer, the serial number, designed by geekvape, C E marks, disposal and the name of the product in capital letters are shown.

    The last image shows the refill operation, the top cap quickly turns on / off, just 1/4 turn.

    17.jpg

    Details of the two mesh coils available:

    18.jpg

    19.jpg

    Final conclusions:

    Also, this New version of the Aegis surprises! It maintains all the best already seen on previous versions, the finishes in general as some small details denote an improvement, such as the new design of the less protruding and invasive adjustment buttons or the further improved responsiveness to the Fire button.

    The use of 21700 cells in a mono-battery Mod is always a positive thing when you want to use it in DTL. Actually, the size and weight have logically increased compared to the 18650 version only, but portability did not charge much, thanks to the super ergonomic Aegis form factor, which had previously decreed the success of this family.

    For the rest there is little to add ... An Aegis is a model imitated and envied by the competition and always admired and purchased by many Vaper.

    Maybe a defect could be the charging speed at 1.5A which is not the best. For me, this is not a problem, I recommend everyone to recharge the cells with an external charger on all mods equipped with external batteries.


    The Zeus Sub Ohm Tank is not a brand-new project but it also defends itself well.

    The build quality is of a good standard and is immediately noticeable in the tip / cap, cap / tank, tank / coil and coil / deck couplings.

    The good aromatic yield and the smooth and flawless functioning are probably due to the happy combination of the air flow from top to bottom, which creates a nice upward thrust conveying aroma, steam very well.

    The tightness of the system is always a direct consequence of the arrangement of the air circuit.

    Consumption is acceptable thanks probably also to the “human dimensions” of these coils, lately it seemed like a race to those who made them bigger.

    Finally, the practicality of refilling the Zeus Sub-Ohm derives from the comfortable and large eyelets and the effective and fast opening / closing Top Cap 1/4 turn system.

    The good quality of GeekVape is now recognized, this is a kit that I can safely recommend to everyone.

    I thank GeekVape for sending me his Aegis Max 100W: Aegis Max
