What’s up, Insiders? DeucesJack and I’m back with another review. Today, we’re going to be going over the Aegis X. Check out that geriatric sized screen. I’m going to tell you right now, I love it. You can see that screen and that font from a mile away. You can see it in all lighting conditions. It’s awesome.
Before we get into the video make sure you check out our new merch site. You can get my tagline on a shirt or a hoodie.
From Top To Bottom
I just got the regular box. DeucesJack didn’t get that nice metal box that everybody else got but that’s okay. We’re going to review it anyway. Check this thing out, all screen. Don’t mind that little fuzzy stuff there, I washed it and then I wiped it down with a paper towel and that’s just what you get with this finish. But it’s got that rubberized finish around the edge, I really, really like that. You can see, it’s got that typical Aegis fire button, that raised, like sloped fire button. I really, really like it. You can push it from the bottom or you can push it from the top. It’s just a great fire button. You got some raised plus and minus buttons over there. They kind of look like a four-sided pyramid. Nice job on that. You got some Aegis branding over here. This is kind of like a, I don’t know if you’re catching that, kind of like a brushed black finish. I like that little divot in the middle, if you can see that. Really, really nice form-factor. Feels great in the hand.
On top here, this is interesting. This is where your micro USB port is. It’s protected with that plug. Make sure when you put it back in, you put it in securely because that’s what’s going to make your mod waterproof. So just make sure you pop that in good. On top, we got these gold-plated star screws. I don’t know why they went with gold. I would have rather have seen black. They kind of stand out a little bit. Stainless steel threading around the inner diameter there. Gold-plated, spring-loaded 510, that I would say has a medium throw with a medium spring to it. So far, on top, 25s shouldn’t be a problem. Let me just show it to you. There’s a 25mm RDA on top. You probably get 26s without a problem. But I’d say, let’s be safe and call it 25mm. Same thing on top. You kind of got like that brushed finished air. I like that brushed finish. I think it looks good, especially once you put some wear on it. It looks kind of nice.
On the front of the mod, we got some Geekvape branding. Here’s your big 2.4 inch display, that rubber tire-like finish around the edges, just like the Legend. I really like that. Now here’s something interesting that they did just like the Legend. They kind of did that leather panel with this thing over here. They did that on the Legend too but it’s only like half of it. It’s like half a leather panel. Instead of wrapping all the way around like it did on the Legend, it took one side and used it all for screen. I’m going to show it to you when I compare it to the Legend. But really nice leather. I like that feel there. It’s got a little bit of cushion to it. Nice job on that.
I wanted to give you a size comparison and I wanted to show you the progression, basically, of the Aegis lineup. This is the OG one, the original. This one took 26650 batteries. If you put an adapter on it like I have, it’ll take 2700s. However, I hate this adapter. It just, it’s junk. It really is. I hate having to take a coin out and use it. I really wish Geekvape would get on the stick and make this exact mod in 21700 form. Geekvape, I’m telling you, you do that with an updated chip and you got a homerun on your hands. But this is the original, this is the Legend that everybody knows, and this is what I’m talking about. See how they did? They kept the same accenting, see that? From this side, it almost looks like a smaller Legend but when you turn it around, this side continues with the leather and that wrap-around, but this is all screen. So I do like the way they did that. I like the progression on it, really nice job. This is actually smaller and lighter than the Legend. The Legend is definitely a big bit bulkier and a bit heavier.
On the bottom there, there’s a little bit of venting. Here’s the battery door. You just slide it open and it pops off. It is spring-loaded. There’s your spring right there. Minus and plus, I wish it was a little bit more clearly marked, gold-plated button style contacts right there. Down the tubes, you probably can’t see it on camera but there’s a blue and red plus and minus sign with gold-plated, spring-loaded contacts. Minus side goes there by the door, plus side goes there facing the door. Close the latch, pull the latch back, pop it shut, latch it in there and it don’t move. They did a nice job with the battery door. Really solid, no battery rattle, whatsoever.
Check out that splash screen. Check out that big screen. This is a monster screen. This is what I call a geriatric screen and I love it because I’ll tell you right now, my eyesight ain’t as good as it once was. This screen is just badass. It is absolutely beautiful and it’s durable. I’ve had the screen protector off it for some time. I put this thing in my pocket, in my bag, I haven’t really scratched it. Look at it. It’s pretty clean, there’s no scratches or anything on it and I tell you guys, all the time, I’m rough on my mods and this, the glass they’re using on this is fantastic.
Let’s go over the menu system. I turn the screen down to its minimum brightness so it would show up better on camera. Here are your separate battery meters. You have M1 through M5, preset, you can put them in wattage mode, TC mode. You can make M to TC mode, stainless steel TC if you want. Totally up to you. There’s your mode right there, power mode. There’s your preheat standard. There are my watts, there’s my resistance, my voltage, my amps, and my puffs.
In order to go into the menu system, three clicks. M1 got highlighted. Now I can scroll between M1, M2, M3, M4. Hit the power button again. Now I can scroll between power mode, curve mode, bypass mode, stainless steel TC, nickel TC, titanium TC, and TCR mode, back to power mode. If I put it in stainless steel mode, now I can adjust my resistance. You see the coil highlighted. I can adjust my wattage. The wattage will scroll all the way up to the full 200W and it will round-robin. Hit the power button again and I can reset my puffs. Hit the power button again and I’m back to the M1 setting. Now you can just hold it here to timeout or you can hold the power button down and it’ll get you out of the adjustment screen. So now, while the M1 is highlighted, if you hold the plus and minus button together, it brings you into another menu system. Auto mode right there is just Auto reading your resistance. Theme, you can scroll between different themes like that one, that one, or that one. I like the one that I have on. Color, you can change the color, red, teal, orange, blue and green. Go to version, that’ll tell you your firmware version. I haven’t been able to figure out what ABB is. I think it’s some type of auto balancing feature for the batteries. The last option is the reset.
That’s it, man. That’s the main menu systems. There are a couple of shortcuts that I’m going to show you right now. If you hit the plus and minus button together, it locks the mod. Means you can’t adjust the wattage but it’ll still fire. Hit the plus and minus button again and it unlocks the mod. If you want to adjust the brightness, say you want to adjust the brightness up, you hit the plus button and the fire button together and you’ll see the brightness go up. I normally keep it around 80% and you can see, it’s nice and bright now. It’s a very bright screen. You can see it in all lighting conditions. It’s very well laid out. Very well done, awesome job on the screen, Geekvape. And that’s it, folks. That’s really the whole menu system.
And of course, what would an Aegis review be like without a water test. You can see, the mod is on. No jump cuts. It’s in the water, it’s still on. If I click it in the water, it goes on. No problem. I’m not going to throw this thing around. We all know, these things are pretty bulletproof. You can see, it still works. It still fires, no issues at all.
Also included in the kit is the Cerberus tank. I’ve gone over this tank a few times before. I think I even did a separate review on it. We’ll have a link down below to whatever review I did with it. It’s probably in my Aegis Legend review. I think this came with the Legend as well. You get some paperwork in there, you get a warranty card and a QC certificate. There is your user manual. You get a spare straight glass, you get a bunch of spare screws, as well as a spare plug for the microUSB port. So that’s kind of nice. You get a micro USB charging cable, you get a spare coil for the Cerberus tank. You get a bunch of spare o-rings, and you also get this which I’m not using. But I don’t know if you can see it there because it’s clear. It’s a screen protector for the screen. I’ll be honest with you, that screen is really, really done. Well I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and I don’t see any scratches on it. But if you’re somebody who likes screen protectors, put this on if you want to.
Let me show you what the kit looks like, all together. Again, we’re not going to go over the Cerberus tank. I’ve reviewed it before, it just seems to be a duplication of effort. But you can see, it’s a nice-looking kit.
What’s in the Box
Alright, Insiders! You saw everything up close and personal. Let’s get into those cons and pros.
First con’s going to be, that menu system. It’s a little counterintuitive. I wish they would have went with more traditional button clicks. It’s a nitpicky con but I got to point it out.
And the only other con I can come up with for this thing is that glass. That glass, that glass screen. Geekvape says it’s certifiably tough. They say It’s tougher than Gorilla Glass. I don’t know about that. On an indestructible mod having a full glass front like that is going to bother some people. I can tell you this, I have dropped it quite a few times and I haven’t even scratched it yet and you guys know I’m very rough on my mods and it’s not like I’m picking up a lot of scratches on it and I don’t have the screen cover on it either because I hate putting those things on. So take out of that what you will. But so far, the glass is held up nice. But some people aren’t going to like it on the indestructible type mod so that’s why I’m chalking it up to a con.
But that’s it on the cons. There is not a lot to complain about here. Let’s get into those pros.
I said it in the beginning of the video, awesome, big, bright screen. You can see it, you can see it in all lighting conditions. It’s colorful, it’s vivid, it’s beautiful. Great job, Geekvape.
Nice, clicky buttons. Hear that? I like the clickiness, pro.
This thing fires fast. IP67, dust shock and waterproof. That’s a pro.
Great chipset. I’ve been enjoying it.
So far, it does decent TC. It’s not terrible TC. It’s not great TC, like middle-of-the-road TC. But that’s a pro.
Solid, solid battery door. That thing don’t move.
Firmware upgradable. That’s always a pro on this channel.
I like the form factor. It feels like a Legend in your hand.
2 amp charging on board.
Comes with a great tank. That Cerberus tank is a fantastic tank. It’s a great mid-range mesh tank, pro.
28mm fit without any overhang, baby.
Love the different wallpapers on and colors on the screen. Hopefully, they come up with some other wallpapers. I’ve been diggin them. It’s a pro.
So that’s it, Insiders. Those are my cons and pros.
Let’s talk about this one a little bit. I don’t know what else I could say about this mod. I basically gushed over it. I love this mod. It put my Legend on the shelf for good. There’s no reason for me to use my Legend. It’s big, it’s bulletproof, it’s badass. If you have any doubts, trust me. Just go out and get one. This one is DeucesJack approved.

Remember, Insiders, it’s more important now than ever that you fight for your right to vape. On November 9th, we’re going to have a big rally at the Ellipse in DC, organized by United Vapors Alliance. Make sure you’re there, do whatever you can do to get there. If you can’t get there, go to their website, go to their Facebook page. See if you can donate a few dollars. It’s important, we need to fight for our right to vape. It’s important that we make a good showing on that weekend. So get out there if you can.
