It has two resin panels on its side faces that come in a variety of unique color options fit for every person. The Cerberus Sub-Ohm Tank included in the kit is also one of the best on the market and works perfectly in conjunction with the mod. It creates delicious flavors and dense cloud production. The GeekVape NOVA 200W Kit is a must-have for those looking for a powerful mod with a well paired tank.

What Is in the Geekvape Nova 200W Kit

The GeekVape NOVA comes in a nice quality black box made with hard cardboard that is perfect for gifting as a starter vape. Inside the box, one will find the GeekVape NOVA Mod, a Cerberus Sub-Ohm Tank, two Super Mesh Coils, an extra glass tube, a charging cable, and other extra parts. The GeekVape NOVA Mod and Cerberus Tank are two prime products from GeekVape that will not disappoint.

Additionally, the kit includes an extra standard glass tube, which gives the user the option of choosing between a bubble or standard glass tube. This makes the kit the perfect solution for both those who do and don’t like the look of bubble glass. The kit also includes extra parts that enable the user to maintain their NOVA long after purchase. This means that one will not need to be buying a new vape or replacement parts regularly. The kit also includes two mesh coils, making it an even more cost-effective buy. Purchasers will not need to buy replacement mesh coils until a while after their initial purchase.

The GeekVape NOVA is expertly constructed with the best materials. As a result, every part in the kit feels both high-quality and durable. The box mod is built with premium quality aluminum alloy and fitted with unique resin panels. In addition, it is coated with a matte finish and feels smooth to the touch.

The box mod, without batteries or the tank, feels incredibly lightweight in the hand, as it only weighs 120g. The Cerberus Tank is crafted from high-quality stainless steel and pyrex glass and fitted with 0.2ohm kanthal mesh coils. These coils are perfectly created to make the best flavor and cloud production. Each component of the GeekVape NOVA Kit feels like they have been thoughtfully crafted and will last through everyday use.

Features of the GeekVape NOVA: Protections and Performance

The GeekVape NOVA 200W vape mod is compact and ergonomic. It comes in eight finish options: gunmetal cobalt resin, gunmetal onyx resin, gunmetal ember resin, black flare resin, silver cobalt resin, silver onyx resin, silver ember resin, and silver flare resin. The resin panels are textured with a wave pattern that gives the mod an extra-luxurious feel. Due to these ridges in the resin, these panels also offer the user a soft, ergonomic place to hold the otherwise metal vape.

The front face of the vape includes an oversized firing button, a comprehensive OLED color screen that displays vaping information, and two buttons to operate the customizations. The screen displays the information in a simplistic, easy-to-use way, and the buttons are intuitive and feel satisfying to operate. Compared with other mods, the GeekVape NOVA is bound to impress friends with its stylish and retro design. The vape is a great social item and the perfect conversation piece at parties.

The NOVA requires dual 18650 batteries that are not included in the kit. They can be accessed through the magnetic battery cover on the side. This system makes it incredibly easy to remove and charge the batteries, though they can also be charged via a micro USB port on the front face of the mod. The battery cover magnet is highly secured so the user does not have to worry about it popping off. The magnetized system to access the batteries makes the mod look smooth and seamless.

The GeekVape NOVA box mod has a power output range of 5W up to a maximum of 200W, which is plenty for most vaping preferences. According to GeekVape, the NOVA works the most efficiently in terms of coils and life of the batteries in the 60W to 80W range. The temperature output range of the vape is from 200OF to 600OF, and its resistance ranges from 0.05ohms to 3.0ohms in all modes. These are both vast ranges that will suit any vaping needs. More on the health effects of vaporization temperature can be found here.

The NOVA utilizes an advanced AS200 chipset that includes a fully equipped user control suite. The chip has a super fast response time of 10 ms, firing with speed, power, and accuracy. It has amazing stability during the draw, allowing the user to have the best vaping experience compared to other mods. This device has six operating modes: power, TC-Ni, TC-Ti, TC-SS, Bypass, and TCR. The GeekVape NOVA comes with various protective features to both prolong the life of the mod as well as protect the user from unlikely accidents. These protections include battery reverse protection, switch timeout protection, overheat protection, over-current protection, over-charging and discharging protection, and short circuit protection. Unlike most other mods, this mod also offers micro USB firmware upgrades so users can stay up to date on the latest from GeekVape.

Due to all of these features, the GeekVape NOVA is a high-quality, incredibly powerful mod. It offers a customizable experience for every vaper’s needs, with the capacity to create beautifully dense clouds that are also flavorful. The GeekVape NOVA 200W is a mod that beats all other mods and has been made to withstand constant use.

Cerberus Sub-Ohm Tank Specifications

The Cerberus Sub-Ohm Tank that is included in the GeekVape NOVA 200W Kit is what brings this vape well above other mods. The tank is genuinely one of the best tanks on the market, and when paired with the GeekVape NOVA, its full potential can be reached. It is crafted with premium quality stainless steel and pyrex glass, which are both durable materials and able to withstand a lot of abuse.

The rebuildable tank atomizer system (RTA) allows the tank to fully detach and allow for easy maintenance and cleaning. Users do not need to worry about the e-juice making a mess, as they can simply take apart the tank and clean it. The 12mm wide bore drip tip is made of Delrin, which is a food grade plastic that is excellent in strength and resistance. The tip fits comfortably on the lips as the vaper takes a draw.

The GeekVape NOVA 200W kit includes two glass tubes that can be interchanged on the tank. If a user wants a larger e-juice capacity, they can choose to utilize the bubble glass style tube that has a capacity of 5.5mL. If they prefer the aesthetics of a standard glass tube and are willing to sacrifice size, they can choose to attach the 4mL e-juice capacity standard tube.

By offering two options within the kit, GeekVape has not only created a very versatile kit but one that can be gifted as a starter, in which a new vaper can learn their own preferences. With this device, users can easily refill the e-juice through a top filling system. The top easily comes off through a slight twist and easily reattaches by lining up the indents and twisting it back. This design is quick and easy to use. Users do not have to worry about the top coming off or not reattaching, as the vape is leak free and well-made. Although the refill openings sit flush against the top cap of the tank, they are large enough so that it is easy to refill them with E-juice by using a pointed tip bottle.

The Cerberus Tank uses the kanthal mesh coils included in the kit that work nicely when paired with the NOVA. They create delicious flavors and intense vapor production. The clouds that come from the coils are bound to impress all vapers, whether they are just getting into it or have been at it for years. Due to the large heating surface area, these coils are able to heat up extremely fast.

Additionally, they have been improved to last a long time. At the base of the tube, there are two adjustable air flow holes. These are controlled through a twistable dial that changes the size of both holes in conjunction with each other. They can be opened all the way to allow for maximum airflow or reduced to decrease the amount of flow. Regardless of airflow amount, the draw is very smooth and refreshing, as well as relatively quiet. The GeekVape NOVA hits strongly, but not harshly, which makes it work well as one of the best starter mods.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.

    The Geekvape 200!!!! My friends is the best one on the market. I been using different Vapes including the final one the Twister ? which is the worst one I ever used. The battery does take long time to charge along with a laundry ? list of things I did not like about the twister. I am an electronics guru, and the Nova 200w took the cake. It’s very reliable, charge time is very quick usually half hour for a full charge. It comes with charge and the batteries are still running smooth after close to three years. It has six different programs you can adjust for better taste and clouds. Extremely easy to reload the juice ? without make a mess. The seals I have not had to change since I bought it. It fires up to 200w which I can’t imagine going that high. The TCR mode is amazing. For best flavor and clouds I keep my TCR mode at 500 TCR and 46 watts for the perfect taste no heat, and saves on battery in which me close to two days charge time. She also has a nice port for air to travel through. Magnetic ? door for the batteries. It also has a lock screen to keep children from tampering with the unit. Fits well in my pocket not bulky. And it’s built with a smart chip which can be hooked up to online. Also as a top I had to learn the hard way in which I saved my unit. If the plastic on top of the battery peals of our gets weak. DO NOT remove the batteries with the unit plugged in. Remove the good battery first then the one with the ripped plastic. All in all you can’t go wrong. Geekvape 200w is the way to go. The best on the market, and it’s worth investing in for your vaping pleasure. If you have questions about the TCR I’d be glad to answer them.
