The Agera / Defender by Asvape Previewed
Ok so where on earth do I start with the Asvape Agera / Defender?
For a start this has two names. On the Asvape Website it is called the “Agera”. On Asvape social media and on retailers sites it is called the “Defender”.
Agera means to “take action” in Swedish apparently and in ancient Greek it means “Ageless”. There is also a Koenigsegg sports car called an Agera. The shape of this device is obviously inspired by the Koenigsegg logo – so why the promo shots showing Ferrari and Porsche badges?
Was this originally some sort of design collaboration with Koenigsegg which didn’t materialise? Hence the second name “Defender”? More likely like a lot of questionable devices they have ‘taken inspiration’ from the design shall we say…
In contrast “Defender” is the name of a model of Land Rover.
However the name confusion appears to be the least of this little fellas troubles.
Yes this is a vaping device – not a badge off the front of a car.
This is very pricey too.
Right getting all that out of the way – you can rest those puzzled eyebrows because here is the crack with the vaping badge…
This is a Pod Mod vaping device with a stainless steel 316 body. It is apparently ergonomically designed for touch and grip with an “Exquisite Switch”. This comes in what looks like a Leather presentation box.
You get an internal battery with 1200mAh capacity and it charges via a USB port and cable.
This will hold 4ml of E-liquid in what appears to be a plastic tank with a replaceable coil.
As you can probably guess its styling, price and features have created a lot of discussion.
I haven’t a clue if you can buy the tanks or coils for this – they are not showing at all on the Asvape website. I suppose more will become apparent nearer the release date which seems to be around the beginning of December.

Well this is certainly different isn’t it. I really don’t like the idea of putting my mouth round that pointy stainless steel badge?
The battery capacity looks decent and the coil resistance promises a decent vape but this will only output 39W maximum – so might not be a hard hitter.
My eyebrows hurt now…
Would you fork out lots of money for this? Let me know in the comments below.
