Aegis GeekVape Z50 Review: What Is It Like to Vape On?

The GeekVape Z50 is a starter kit for people who like lower wattage box mods. It only powers to 50 watts, so the vapor is not going to be as warm as the higher wattage devices. Even so, the flavor is very good because of the KA1 mesh coils.

The device is also comfortable to hold. The mod has a slim profile, although it is a little tall with the tank attached, but is still a very ergonomic and transportable kit.

Vapor Production

This tank still is able to produce a high amount of vapor, even if vaping it at around 30 or 35 watts. It uses low resistance coils, so it is going to produce a lot of vapor. It may not make as big of a cloud as the higher wattage devices, but cloud chasers should still be satisfied with it.

Internal Building Quality and Design

The build and design quality of the GeekVape Z50 box mod and tank are very good. There are no issues with rattling, sticky buttons, or whistling airflow holes.

Also, the firing and adjustment buttons are large, well placed, and responsive. The rainbow color is a bit too flashy; otherwise, there is not much to say in terms of cons.

Battery Life and Performance

The vape uses a built-in 2000 mah battery, which is pretty good when considering that this is a 50 watt box mod. The battery should last most of the day or more, and it takes an hour to charge. The optimal wattage level for battery longevity is 30 to 40 watts.

Screen and Menu

The battery life is displayed at the very top. Beneath that, wattage is shown in the center, followed by resistance, amps, volts, and the puff counter. It is a bright screen and very easy to read, even when outside.

The menu is simple and is similar to all the other GeekVape devices. Anyone who has used a GeekVape kit before should figure it out quickly.

The GeekVape Zeus Nano Tank

This Z Nano tank is pretty good. People are going to like the drip tip and the fill ports the most. The drip tip is 510 and removable, and the fill ports are large, so there should be no trouble with getting the nozzle into them. The fill ports are located at the top, not the bottom, which is another big pro.

GeekVape Aegis Tank

Some people are not going to like that the GeekVape Z50 tank’s max juice capacity is 3.5 ml with the bubble glass.

  • The juice capacity is even lower with the straight glass (2 ml). For a 50 watt box mod, the juice capacity is not bad.
  • But, it would have been better had the bubble and straight glasses been a bit larger. 4 ml would have been perfect for the.

Compatible Juices

These are medium resistance coils, so it would be best to go with 70/30 or 60/40 vegetable glycerin to propylene glycol liquids.

They do not get that hot, but they get hot enough to get gunked up with other liquids.

Airflow

Not only are the fill ports up top, but so is the airflow. There are two holes located beneath the top cap for top-to-bottom airflow.

The airflow control ring is located beneath the top cap. It goes from wide open to almost all the way closed, providing deep direct-to-lung hits and loose mouth-to-lung draws.

GeekVape Z50 Coils

The starter kit comes with 0.4 and 0.6 ohm KA1 mesh coils rated for 15 to 25 watts and 25 to 33 watts, respectively. These coils are very good at sucking every bit of flavor out of the juices.

How Long Do the Coils Last?

GeekVape Aegis Coils

Each coil should last a good while if properly primed and used with 3 to 6 mg nicotine liquid. Also, stick within the manufacturer’s recommended wattage settings.

How to Use the GeekVape Z50 Box Mod and Tank?

  • Prime the coils to ensure they do not dry hit by placing two or three drops of liquid into them.
  • Follow that up by putting the selected coil into that tank.
  • Open the fill ports by sliding open the top cap and lifting it off.
  • Fill it to capacity and give the coil five to ten minutes to absorb the liquid.

The wattage increases in 0.5 increments, but holding the adjustment buttons down causes the wattage to increase to 1.0 increments. The vape round-robins.

Button Combinations

  1. Five clicks on/off
  2. Three clicks to enter the modes menu, click the adjustment buttons to change modes, and then click the power button again to choose the mode
  3. Click both adjustment buttons to lock and unlock the wattage
  4. Click the power button and either adjustment button to change the brightness

Competing Starter Kit Products

GeekVape Z50 vs. Aspire Onixx Kit

The Aspire Onixx is a pretty good kit that is worth considering as well. It’s slightly smaller and easier to handle, and the Onixx is a few dollars less expensive. Another thing to like about this device is the leather grip.

Aspire Onixx Kit Colors

It is slightly more comfortable than that of the GeekVape Z50. However, it has even less juice capacity, holding only 3 ml. It also has lower wattage.

GeekVape Z50 vs. GeekVape Aegis Kit

The Aegis is a good alternative to the GeekVape Z50 kit for those who want a pod mod that can provide solid mouth-to-lung hits.

GeekVape Aegis Nano Colors

Other advantages of this kit include high durability (IP67 rating) and a highly portable and ergonomic design that makes it even more comfortable to hold and vape than the GeekVape Z50. Nevertheless, the GeekVape Z50 comes with a lot of power modes and provides a solid MTL hit.

Pros&Cons

The Positives

  • Excellent clouds and flavor
  • Decent battery life
  • Good airflow
  • Easy to use
  • Simple menu system

The Negatives

  • Small tank capacity

Closing Thoughts About the GeekVape Z50 Starter Kit

There is nothing negative to say about this mod or kit, except that GeekVape’s Z Nano’s juice capacity is not where it should be. Even that is not much of a con. The max most people are going to burn these coils at is around 30 watts, so it will not be necessary to top it off frequently.

The other advantages of this mod and tank far outweigh this small con, such as good airflow, decent build quality, and amazing flavor and cloud production.

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.
