The GeekVape Aegis Mini was an outstanding mod, and GeekVape has decided to build on that device’s success by creating the GeekVape M100(Aegis Mini 2). But how does this new vape stack to the Aegis Mini and other vapes when tested?

GeekVape Aegis Mini 2 Review
The M100 performs marvelously. It has an outstanding build quality that makes it reliable in all sorts of weather and environmental conditions, and it has a well-made tank with two excellent coils and exceptional airflow, flavor, and cloud production.
Finally, it has a high-performance battery that can last a day or longer, depending on the settings and how often the vape is used.
GeekVape M100 (Aegis Mini 2) vs Geekvape Aegis Mini
These two vapes are well made and can withstand water, shock, and grime. Of course, that does not mean someone should go swimming with these mods, but they can withstand rigorous travel, rain, and other surprises nature throws at people.
The most significant differences between these vapes are their output and battery size. The original GeekVape Aegis Mini has a 2,200 mah battery, and the new model has a 2,500 mah battery. As for wattage output, the M100 puts out 20 more watts than its predecessor.
The best thing about the M100, as opposed to the GeekVape Aegis Mini, is the screen. The M100’s screen is slightly easier to read. The only thing better about the Aegis Mini is that the starter kit comes with a larger glass that holds 5.5 ml of nicotine liquid.
Vapor production is about the same because both starter kits come with 0.2 ohm coils. Perhaps the GeekVape M100 can put out a little more vapor because it has more output, but there is no discernible difference.
These vapes both have temperature control and power modes, and both vapes run very well on these modes.
These vapes have mostly the same safety features:
- 10 Second Cutoff
- Over-Charging and Discharging
- Anti-Dry Protection (TC Mode Only)
- A-Lock for preventing accidental firing

Design and Internal Build Quality
The build and design quality of this vape is solid. First off, everything feels like it was well put together, as there is no rattling and no connection issues. Also, the tank fits securely and screws on perfectly.
The firing button is well positioned, and it is cool how they made it like a light switch. It is easy to find and responsive. Plus, it looks cool.
The only disadvantage is that the screen is oversized, and the plasticky material around the firing button and the screen smudge easily. That really is not a con because smudging does not affect performance. Still, it is something worth noting.
GeekVape did an excellent job with the battery. The device has a 2,500 mah battery that can last a day or more depending on the coil inside and the wattage setting. Vaping at around 50 watts can guarantee between 275 and 315 puffs before the device finally runs down. The 0.6 ohm coil does even better and can last over a day if vaped between 30 and 20 watts.
Above 50 to 60 watts, the battery life starts to diminish significantly. So maxing the vape out at 100 watts with ultra-low resistance coils kills the battery life and is not worth it. Besides, the coils in the kit and their recommended wattages are good enough for a fabulous vaping session.
The screen is a bit oversized, but its advantage is that it is easy to read. It is a simple color display that has an easy-to-read layout. The top margin shows the power mode, and beneath that is the battery life, wattage, resistance, amps, voltage, and puff counter.
Zeus Nano 2 Tank
This tank is very well made and works perfectly with the vape. It has two fill ports on top beneath a top cap that is hard to remove at first but gets looser with time.
The top cap comes off by turning it 90 degrees. Also at the top are the airflow slots and control. Above, a 510 drip tip is secured via an o-ring that keeps the drip tip connected to the tank.
The tank has two glasses: a 3.5 ml bubble tank and the other is 2 ml. It would have been nice if the bubble glass had been 4 or 5 ml. Beneath the glass part of the tank, the coils can be pushed into the recess in the tank’s base. There is also a 510 connection with smooth threading, and a peek insulator.
This tank has every feature it needs to function correctly, but it would have been nice if the tank had a slightly higher juice capacity.
The 0.2 ohm mesh coil is for direct to lung vaping, but the flavor is pretty good too. Even though it is a DL coil, there is some restriction to the draw, but not so much that it should be considered a true restrictive lung coil.
This vape is best at the recommended wattage settings of 50 to 58 watts. These settings produce a warm, cloudy, and flavorful vape.
There is also the 0.6 ohm coil, which is for lower wattage, restrictive lung vaping. Plus, the flavor is good, but it is not as good as that of the 0.2 ohm coil. Still, it is an excellent coil for people who want to vape on tight airflow settings.
The 0.2 ohm coil will do well with 80/20 or 70/30 vegetable glycerin to propylene glycol liquids, and the 0.6 ohm coil can handle the 80/20, 70/30, and 60/40 liquids without any problems.
How Long Do the Coils Last?
These coils can last over a week if they are properly primed and are used with the liquids mentioned above.
Also, fire them at the recommended wattage ranges and do not max out the wattage. Anyone who wants to vape at 100 watts or more should get a device or coil made for those wattages.
How to Use the GeekVape M100
- Prime the coils by dripping nicotine liquid into the wicking
- Push the coil into the bottom of the tank
- Twist the top cap 90 degrees counterclockwise to expose the fill ports
- Use a syringe or juice bottle to fill the tank to capacity
- Put the top cap back on by pushing and twisting it clockwise 90 degrees
- Allow the coil five to ten minutes to absorb the juice to avoid burn and dry hits
When vaping, adjust the airflow control by rotating back and forth. There is a stopper that prevents it from spinning all the way around.
- Click five times to turn on/off
- To enter the menu click three times
- For cycling through the power modes use the adjustment buttons
- Click the fire button to select a power mode
- Press and hold the fire button to exit the menu
- Push the fire button or one of the adjustment buttons to adjust the screen’s brightness
- Flip the switch on the side to lock the mod
GeekVape M100 vs. Voopoo Drag X Plus 100W Box Mod
These are great mods, and none is much better than the other. Deciding which is better depends on the buyer’s preferences.
The Drag X Plus is ideal for people who prefer 18650s and 21700s to onboard batteries like the M100’s. Other than that, these are both outstanding vapes available for reasonable prices.
GeekVape M100 vs. Freemax Marvos 60W
Even though the Marvos does not have as much output as the M100, it is still a pretty good vape.
One of the Marvos’s advantages is that its 0.25 ohm coil can handle slightly higher wattages than the M100’s 0.3 ohm coils, giving it a bit more kick. Also, it is a tad smaller than the M100, making it more portable.

Final Thoughts About the GeekVape M100 Box Mod
There is not much to complain about here. However, it would have been better had GeekVape included a tank with 4 or 5 ml capacity instead of 3.5 ml. Also, the screen is a bit oversized and a magnet for fingerprints. Other than that, this is a well-built mod with a good set of coils and a flavorful and cloudy tank. Vapers will not regret buying this vape.
