The Aegis Mini is the latest internal battery mod from Geekvape. It joins in the line of rugged Aegis mods from Geekvape that started with the original Aegis and continued with the Aegis Legend. Now, the new Aegis Mini lives up to the mini name while retaining the same design and ruggedness of the originals in a much smaller package.
The internal battery mod market is kind of slim on choices right now, with only the Innokin Kroma-A and VOOPOO Mojo standing out for me. Let’s see how the Aegis Mini looks, feels and performs after a few days of use.
This mod was sent to me free of charge by MyVpro, where it’s currently available at a discounted price.
Colors: black & red, stealth black, black & blue, camo & gunmetal, black & green
The Aegis Mini is a sleek looking vape mod, and one of the smallest ones I’ve come across. It is very lightweight but feels really well-built. For comparison, the VOOPOO Mojo, one of the lightest internal battery mods, weighs in at 172 grams, but the Aegis Mini is much lighter at 122.4 grams. The mod features an internal 2200 mAh battery that comes with 2-amp charging, making it quick and easy to charge. They claim it can charge to 80% in 30 minutes, but I’ll be testing that in my review.
Anyone who has used any of the previous Aegis mods knows how good they feel in the hand and the type of abuse they can take. While I haven’t got to abuse mine yet (I will for the full review), the past two mods I’ve beat up, thrown around, soaked in water, dragged behind my car and they just survive.
The design and style are excellent as well. The leather feels great, and the rubber around the mod makes it more durable and gives it extra grip that is soft to the touch. Geekvape currently offers five color options. Four of them feature a black leather, and all of them are mostly black with the color difference being the frame around the leather. Those options are green, blue, red and black. The gunmetal frame option has a camo leather on it, same as the original Aegis.
The Aegis Mini has a large and bright front-facing black and white screen, similar to the original Aegis and VOOPOO Mojo, and a fire button that is large and clicky. The button feels solid and there is no rattle at all. It has a nice 510 platform that appears to be around 27 mm in diameter. I can’t imagine anyone using a bigger atomizer then 25 mm on this, so overhang should not be any issue. All in all, the Aegis mini is designed just like the Aegis Legend but in a much smaller size.
Geekvape lists an 80-watt limit and I have no doubts that it can do that, given the quality of their chipsets. As someone who has tested over 100 mods from a wide variety of companies in the past two years, I can tell you the Geekvape chip is one of the best in the business lately. Their Nova mod was flat-out excellent, and the Aegis and Aegis Legend were great mods in power mode. If this one lives up to the Nova in terms of performance, it’ll be a real killer. I’ve run several builds on it, including a few small MTL builds and a single quad-core fused Clapton coil build. So far, I have no complaints as there is no fire delay and it feels accurate enough as well; I’ll be putting its accurancy to the test in the full review.
Their temperature control has been hit or miss in the past, so hopefully this one performs more like the Nova and less like the original Aegis. So far it seems at least to be passable. It has the same menu system as the other Aegis mods as well, using three clicks to enter the menu mode and the up and down buttons to cycle. It has temp control for Ni200, SS, and Ti wire as well as TCR mode for custom TCR values, full wattage curves, and bypass mode. Pretty much everything you could ask for from a mod.
Overall it feels like Geekvape has a real winner on their hands. Let me know what you think in the comments and stay tuned as I will be giving the Aegis Mini a full review soon.
