The Aegis Boost is the latest addition to the Aegis series of mods from Geekvape. Featuring the same waterproof and dustproof casing that we’re all familiar with, the Boost is a slimmed down version of the Aegis Mini with a few noticeable differences. This is Geekvape’s first Mod Pod, and I’m really impressed.

One of the most exciting things about the Aegis Boost is the hybrid pod system, which makes it a very versatile and compact vaping device. The Geekvape Aegis Boost supports mesh coils (a DL and MTL coil are included in the box) as well as an RBA option for those vapers that like to build. For the purpose of this review I have been using the included DL coil now for over a month. The puff count is at 3064, I’m still using the original 0.4Ω mesh coil, and it still has great flavour.
Geekvape have some of the best mesh coils, the Cerberus and Zeus sub tanks have a similar mesh structure and the same great flavour. Other pod mesh coils that I’ve tried in devices such as the Innokin EQs don’t have half the flavour and vapour production let alone the same longevity as the Boost coils. The GV Boost coils use a Kanthal mesh. The 0.4Ω coil, which is best for DL, and has a recommended wattage range of 25-33W. The MTL 0.6Ω coil has a recommended wattage range of 15-25W.
Swapping out your coil is really simple, you don’t even need to empty the tank. Geekvape includes a little tool to easily remove the coil, replacing it is simple just slide the new one in. The included tank has a capacity of 3.7ml, which isn’t a lot, but the Boost only has a maximum wattage of 40W so your juice will last longer than a traditional sub tank. However, I did find myself refilling once or twice a day.
The top filling design makes refilling the Boost fuss free, although I found the silicone stopper a little hard to remove without a pair of tweezers. After filling there is a little juice residue that gets left around the stopper, but this is easily wiped away. The tank has an adjustable airflow dial located at the front. You can leave it wide open for DL vaping, or restrict the airflow for MTL. Wide open the airflow of the Aegis Boost is comparable to a low wattage sub ohm tank.
The Aegis Boost has a wattage range of 5-40W which is more than enough power for the included DL coil. The combination of power and mesh produces some worthy clouds. Pod Mods may be low wattage devices but, with the new GV Boost mesh coils your experience is closer to a sub ohm tank than a pod system. The Aegis Boost offers vapers more power than a traditional pod, while still retaining a compact size and shape.
As for functions, the Boost lacks the features of it’s bigger brothers the Aegis Solo and Aegis Legends. But, with a low wattage device there really isn’t any need for temperature control or fancy functions. You can reset the puff counter by holding the “-” and the power button for a few seconds. You can also lock the wattage by holding the “+” and “-” The display is pretty basic, you have your puff counter, coil resistance, wattage, and a battery indicator.
The design of the Aegis Boost is similar to the other mods in the Aegis range. It is both waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof. The Boost also comes with a drip tip cover, although I’m pretty sure I lost mine within the first week. The Boost comes with two drip tips, one that’s more suited to DL and a slightly more restrictive one for MTL vaping.
With a 1500mAh internal battery, heavy vapers may need to charge throughout the day. The Aegis Boost does however have passthrough capabilities, you can use it while it’s charging. Battery life isn’t too bad even when vaping over 30W I was getting about a day and a half on a single charge. Vaping over 33W is going to be better suited to the RDTA, which you can purchase separately.

The Geekvape Aegis Boost has fast become one of my favourite devices. The convenient size and great flavour have been so impressive that I’ve been using this device almost exclusively for nearly two months. I can’t speak highly enough of the GV Boost coils, they have some amazing flavour and seem to last forever. At the time of writing this review my puff count is over 3000, and I’m still on the original coil I started with. Flavour hasn’t decreased, and the clouds are really impressive for such a compact device.
What I really love most about this mod pod is it’s ability to switch between DL and MTL, and the RDTA option is also an added bonus. This versatility makes the Aegis Boost the perfect device for new vapers. There’s nothing difficult about using the Boost, fill it up and away you go. While the Boost does have a more restrictive airflow than a sub ohm tank, it’s still much less restrictive than any other pod I’ve tried to date. For clouds and flavour I rate the Aegis Boost right up there with the best of the pod mods.
- The Boost is a really compact and versatile mod weighing only 120g it’s still light enough to wear on a lanyard.
- The fact that it does both DL and MTL is a huge pro.
- The GV Boost coils have amazing long lasting flavour! Some of the best flavour I’ve had from a pod system.
- Power is more than ample for building on an RDTA, and the mesh DL coil is perfect at 30W.
- For a pod system the cloud output is better than what I’ve experienced in other pod mods like the Pasito and Jester.
- No leaking or massive amounts of residue from the pod. Some people have reported leaking but I’m happy to say I didn’t have this problem.
- Fast firing of 0.08s is right up there with some of the best mods.
- Considering the higher wattage maximum I wish the Boost had a slightly bigger battery. Battery tech has come a long way, hopefully we’ll start to see bigger capacities in future devices.
- The drip tip cover is handy but it’s so easy to lose. It would have been good if it had a magnet that you could attach to the bottom of the mod while you’re using it.
- The 3.7ml Capacity with the standard tank is average, I do refill sometimes twice a day. But, the 2ml capacity of the RDTA seems really small if you’re vaping at the maximum wattage.
- While I like the shape and style of the drip tips I found that they fit really loosely on the tank. Although, I did get a sample version so it’s possible this may have changed in future releases.
