The Aegis Max is the latest box mod from popular manufacturer Geekvape. The Aegis line of products has become very popular for and for good reason. They have been excellent devices and pioneered the way for the IP67 shock-resistant and water-resistant mods on the market. The Max is a single 21700 mod that’s capable of 100 watts and it is offered both on its own as well as in a kit with the Zeus sub ohm tank.
I’ve been using the Aegis Max for less than a week now, so this is just a hands-on preview. A full review will be published in the upcoming weeks.
This product was sent to me free of charge by MyVpro.
Colors: Black space, grey pearl, black tungsten, red phoenix, white storm
Anyone who has used an Aegis before should be pretty familiar with the features of this mod. Outside of the Aegis X, which had a large color screen, the rest have had pretty much the same screen and feature set. It’s nothing new here, but I can’t complain—as they say, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. The main difference here is the battery configuration. The Aegis Max supports a single 21700, 20700, or 18650 battery (with included adapter), making it the first Aegis to be compatible with a 21700 out of the box. It is available in five colors, but judging from the previous products of the line, I’d expect lots more color options in the future.
Like the rest of the Aegis line, it’s IP67 rated for shock and water/dust resistance. It features a good sized bright black and white screen. It comes standard with all the expected modes like power, temp control (Ni, Ti, SS, and TCR), bypass, and VPC (power curve mode). All the basic necessities of today’s mods. And staying true to the Aegis design, it features a nice leather backing, a rubber coating around the frame, and a nice large 510 platform that will fit any atomizer you’d want to use reasonably on a single battery mod. In short, if you’ve used an Aegis before you know what to expect. And that’s a good thing, as they’re a great line of products.
I’ve used and reviewed many Aegis mods in the past—pretty much all of them. And I have to say that I have never been let down by any of them. So, my bar for this was pretty high, and it hasn’t disappointed so far. Using it feels like second nature to me, and would be for anyone else who has used an Aegis before. I have the grey pearl edition, which looked like a very light grey matte frame in the pics, but it’s a shiny bare metal looking frame in person. I think the frame looks great in contrast with the brown leather and the black rubber frame coating. It manages to be classy and tactical looking at the same time.
The Max is smaller than the original Aegis but a little bigger than the Aegis Solo which was a single-18650 battery mod. It comes at a great size for comfort and for pocketing. It has the same battery door as the others, which is a threaded cap that works great and helps with the water resistance a lot. So far, I got what I expected. A great mod I’ve used before, but in a new battery configuration. We’ll see if it lives up to the rest of the line over the course of my review, but so far, I’m pretty happy with it.
