The Geekvape Aegis X Kit it the largest of a longline of Aegis kits,
Over the years Geekvape have brought us a whole family of vape gear, and Geekvape have become the go to name in indestructible Vaping devices.

Design and Build.
The Geekvape Aegis X 200w feels great in the hand, and has a similar feel to similar to hold to the Aegis Legend, it’s only when you turn the device around to display the massive 2.4in screen, do you get the X factor.
The positioning of the Sloped fire button makes it feel great to hold, the perfect ergonomic design. Allowing your thumb to rest on the well positioned fire button. Whilst the palm of your hand is cushioned buy the well padded back bone of the device.
The highly durable rubberised finish, is soft to the touch, and is the perfect none slip surface. Reducing the chance of you dropping it, or it slipping out of your hand.
And even if you do accidentally drop it, it’s durable construction will definitely help in preventing any major damage.
The screen is one of the largest and brightest displays that I have found on any mod that I have used, I think you would struggle to make it any bigger, and still be comfortable to hold.
The screen is perfect for those who struggle with there vision, and everything on the display is large and clear, displaying all the information that you will ever need. Well laid out, and really adds to the overall look of the device.
As you can imaging the Aegis X is feature packed, but I’m glad to say it is not to over complicated to use, – The main screen displays the following information
- Mode (1,2,3,4)
- Battery levels
- Power and Power Mode
- Coil resistance
- Current Rating
- Puff Count
The Aegis X has 2 levels of menu options – the Geekvape Aegis X has the usual 5 fire button clicks On and Off along with the option of Locking the device by pressing the Up and Down buttons for approx 3 seconds.
Level 1 Menu.
3 Clicks of the Fire button take you into the Basic Menu which allows you to change between 4 Configurable Modes.
In wattage mode you can choose between Soft, Standard and Powerful which will basically increase or decrease the initial ramp up time when you press the fire button.
You can also reset your Puff count in this mode.
To get out of this Menu, simply leave the device for approx 5 seconds and you’re ready to go.
Level 2 Sub-Menu
Getting to the 2nd level menu is a little tricker, to enter into this sub menu, first as before click the fire button 3 times as you did to get into Menu 1, then follow up by pressing and holding the Up and Down buttons for 3 Seconds – and the level 2 menu will open up on the screen.
Automatically detects the best wattage for your installed coil. Set to Auto, or Off.
Select between 3 different themes
Select between different colours
You can combine each of the colours with each of the themes, which gives 15 different colour and theme combinations.
Displays the Version, and the Version Date.
ABB (Automatic Battery Balancing)
The Aegis X comes with the very clever ABB option which when activated, the device will automatically Balance your battery levels. It can take a little time to work, but effectively what it’s doing is taking charge out of the more full battery, and levelling the charge levels out.
Most people know to ‘marry’ their batteries, ensuring the batteries are always used together, charged together – But that doesn’t mean batteries that have been paired, will stay perfectly balanced.
The Aegis X has taken battery 🔋 useage to a new level, by self-balancing the batteries which will hopefully help increase the life of your batteries over time.
Simply resets the device to factory settings
Geekvape Cerberus Tank
The Cerberus Tank has been included in quite a few of the Geekvape kits for sometime, mainly because it is one of the most reliable tanks that they make. Nothing to over complicated, it looks good, performs well, and has been very well made, for everyday use and vaping.
The Cerberus features a super easy 90 degree twist open top cap, for effortless and mess free filling.
The airflow control is super smooth and fully adjustable, with the nut like shaping of the airflow ring.
With a quarter turn the top cap is removed, exposing two quite small kidney shaped fill ports, personally I would have liked them a bit bigger.
Once it is full, you can then press and turn to refit it.
Changing the Coil
The base of the tank simple unscrews, which then pulls away, with the coil attached.
The coil can then be unscrewed from the base and then can be swapped out. When you install the new coil, just remember to prime it with juice, and allow in to soak in.
The X1 coil recommends vaping at 60-80w. I found that around around 75 watts was the sweet spot, with the airflow about halfway to a quarter open, the coil produced a mid level of flavour, a little bit muted at some points, but overall they performed well,
You can charge the device via the Micro USB port with a 5V/2A charge. As always I would always recommend you remove the batteries, and use en external charger.
However, if you get really stuck, its nice to have the option there.
The battery door is the same design as on the Aegis Legend with a flip lid latch, and slide to lock and unlock.catch. I have had no issues with this style of door latch, and holds securely.
Everyday use and final thoughts.
The Aegis X is a stand out kit in the Aegis line up, and has very few faults that I can find, it’s a solidly built mod that is meant to last, and will put up with just about anything you can put it through. And will continue to perform faultlessly.
