GeekVape is well-known for its portable and ergonomic vapes, and the Nano is no different. All sorts of vapers will sit up and take notice because of this device’s design, durability, and cloud and flavor production – all for a reasonable price.

GeekVape Aegis Nano Review

The Nano from GeekVape has an impressive set of specifications. It powers to 30w, and it comes with two pods with resistances of 0.6 and 1.2 ohms, both of which are excellent for restrictive vaping and producing high levels of flavor.

Vapor Production

GeekVape Obelisk AIO 60 Review

The 0.6 ohm mesh coil pod is best for producing vapor, and it does a very good job of it. It cannot produce clouds as large as a high wattage box mod, but it produces more than many pod mods.

Power Modes

This vape has no power settings, but it automatically selects the best wattage setting for the pod with which it is connected.

Safety Features

The Aegis Nano from GeekVape has all of the usual safety features:

  • Short-Circuit Protection
  • Battery Voltage Protection
  • Overheat Protection
  • Short-Circuit Protection
  • Low Battery Protection
  • Overheating Protection

The Aegis Nano Kit

This GeekVape 30w starter kit also has most of the usual contents, plus a pleasant extra. There are:

  • Two pods
  • A USB cable
  • and a user manual.

Plus, the kit contains a lanyard so that it stays attached to the user at all times.

Internal Build Quality and Design

GeekVape Aegis Nano Colors

GeekVape mods have very few design and construction flaws, and this one is no exception. In addition to its portable and ergonomic design, the Aegis Nano is made for the outdoors and other extreme environments, being resistant to dust, shock, and water. It should still be handled with care, but it still can handle tough conditions better than most vapes.

Battery

This vape uses an onboard 800 mah battery, which is good enough to last the day, at least. This is not a high-wattage vape, so it does not need a huge battery. Still, it would have been better had they put in a 1,000 mah battery, at least. Also, it has a USB-C cable, so it charges very quickly.

Screen

The screen is very simple but good enough for this vape. Battery life is displayed at the top, followed by the wattage, and then resistance and voltage.

Airflow

An airflow control lever is located on the side, and it has not caused any problems. Airflow itself is pretty loose, and it ranges from open to slightly restrictive mouth-to-lung hits. It could have been tighter, but there is a demographic that prefers loose MTL hits, and this vape is for them.

Aegis Nano Pod

The kit comes with two pods: a 0.6 ohm mesh pod for restrictive direct-to-lung hits and a 1.2 ohm pod for mouth-to-lung. The coils on these pods cannot be replaced, which is a big disadvantage to some, but they do their jobs very well. They are refillable, and the filling slots are located underneath the mouthpiece, which conveniently snaps on and off.

How Long Do the Coils Last?

Coil longevity mostly depends on the juice it is vaporizing and how well it was primed. If it is not burning super-sweet juices all the time, it will last for a week or more. As for priming it, doing this will extend coil life even further because the chances of dry hits are significantly reduced.

How to Use the Aegis Nano 30w

  1. After picking up the pod and filling it, click the firing button five times in succession to turn it on.
  2. Press the firing button down and take a draw.

It is as simple as that. When done, click the firing button five more times to turn it off.

Step-by-Step Button Operation Guide

  1. Five clicks on/off
  2. Three clicks to adjust power
  3. Four clicks to clear puff counter
  4. Double click to lock/unlock it

How to Refill the Pod

Refilling the pod is as simple as using it.

  • Pull off the mouthpiece and then lift off the silicone covering the refilling slots.
  • Fill to capacity using a syringe. Syringes cause less of a mess than nose coned bottles.
  • After filling the pod, let it sit for five to ten minutes so that the juice has time to absorb into the coil.
  • Doing this will prevent spit-back and dry hits, and it will make the coils last longer.

Competing Starter Kit Products

Aegis Nano vs. Aegis Boost Kit

VD GeekVape Aegis Boost

  • The Aegis Boost 40w starter kit is a more powerful vape than the Nano. It has a more powerful 1,500 mah battery, higher wattage output (40 watts), and it holds substantially more juice (3.7 ml).
  • Additionally, it uses replaceable plug-and-play coils instead of disposable pods.
  • The Nano’s only advantages are that it comes with two pods and it is slightly less expensive.

Aegis Nano vs. Vaporesso Luxe Nano Box Mod Kit

Vaporesso Luxe Nano

  • The Luxe Nano starter kit from Vaporesso is a box mod that fires to 80 watts and holds a 2,500 mah built-in battery. It also comes with two very low resistance coils.
  • Overall, these features make the Luxe Nano a much better vape.
  • However, the Nano is better able to withstand the elements than the Luxe Nano box mod.
  • Also, the Nano is selling at roughly half the price.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Much Is an Aegis Nano?

    The Nano is selling for under $27.99-$39.99 on online stores as of August 20th, 2021. The fact that it is priced well under fifty dollars is one of its best selling points.

  • How Long Does the Geekvape Aegis Nano Last?

    The disadvantage of using mods with built-in batteries is that the batteries degrade over time, holding less and less charge.

    However, by buying such a vape, the user does not have to buy 18650s over and over again. Eventually, the device will no longer hold a charge, but when that happens depends on how often the device is used and recharged. Thus, there is no definite time span.

  • Does the Aegis Nano Pod Leak?

    There have been no leaks from this device because it does not use plug-and-play coils. Pods that use replaceable coils tend to leak a little bit, but that is not a problem with this device.

Closing Thoughts About This GeekVape Pod Mod Kit

First, the only disadvantage of this device is that it does not use replaceable coils. A device like this should have come with replaceable coils.

Other than that, this is a very good pod mod with excellent airflow and high build quality. The product is ideal for people who want an affordable and durable vape.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.
