GeekVape Aegis 100W Review
GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC is one hell of a mod, that is designed to take a beating like a soldier and still perform like a king. It is one of the best mods in the industry by any standards and competes with high-end products like the VooPoo Alpha One x, the Vapeman Steam Engine DNA 75 TC Box Mod, the Sigelei Fuchai 213W, or the Wismec Reuleaux DNA 200. These are the leaders of durability and GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC is second to none in this niche.
Its claims of being a shockproof and waterproof mod and this claim have been tested by many veteran reviewers and they stand true by our tests too. The GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC is truly a miraculous device and it just won’t break. It is made up of three materials, zinc alloy, aluminum, and military-grade silicone. Two of the Aegis’s variants have leather-type polymer attached to the front end. It adds a subtle style to it and also feels good on the grip. The device is highly ergonomic and each and every corner of the mod reeks of user-friendliness.
The most noticeable example would be the closing lid of the battery, which has an ingenious hook and unscrew system, that feels very finger-friendly to work with. The stainless-steel threading is complemented with a silicone gasket, which makes it waterproof. The battery chamber is huge and can accommodate a single 26650-battery, or you can use a 18650 battery with a silicone band, that is provided in GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC kit.
The fire button is designed to fit the curve of your fingers and is another place where GeekLeaf proves its thoughtful designing. The 510-tank port is made of stainless steel threading, and you can fit in an RTA of any size into this beast, without any overhanging. It will also take any coil type and give you sub-ohm vaping experience, deep down at 0.1 ohms. Let’s check out the pros and cons of GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC:
- Military-grade durability.
- Instantaneous firing.
- A wide range of functionality.
- Heavy and huge.
- Not pocketable.
How tough is GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC?
GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC is one of the toughest mod in the industry. Carved out of military grade 810G-516.6 shockproof material standards and IP67 dust and waterproof coating, the device withstood 2-story falls with minor scratches. The gasket covered plug holes made it impossible for water to sweep in during water-bath tests.

Cloud chasing review with GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC
The vapor quality in GeekVape Aegis 100W Waterproof TC is top-notch and you can customize your vaping experience to a large extent with this solid device. You get the usual temperature control feature and a sophisticated wattage control mode, where you can automate your entire vaping experience by setting a power curve. This feature comes in with its latest update and the device carries a special USB port for updating its chipset. Unlike other brands, Geek Leaf has a consistent record of giving out useful updates. The USB port for the update is located at the bottom end, just beside the coil head port, and is accessed by unscrewing the top part. The Power Control mode is extremely dynamic, and you get a range of 1 – 100 W, with 0.1 increments. This lets you play with subtle areas of vaping and gives you access to the new VPC mode, which lets you play around with your vapor.
What is the VPC and the Bypass Mode in GeekVape Aegis?
The GeekVape Aegis 100W, like the Mamba or the Asvape Strider, has the coveted VPC (Variable Power Control) Mode. The VPC mode lets you set a power-distribution curve, over five vaping phases, during which the chipset will take care of your power controls. In Bypass mode (mech mod), you will get the max voltage available in the battery.
