Introduction To The Aegis Legend Kit by GeekVape
The legend is back! And in a completely new form this time around! The GeekVape Aegis Legend Mod is a dual 18650 device that is powered by the new AS chipset that can fire up to an impressive 200w, all on a fancy colour screen!
With IP67 waterproof certification, it has been claimed to withstand immersion for up to 30 minutes at a maximum depth of 1 meter. As well as this, it is shock resistant and dust proof too!
So does this make the GeekVape Aegis Legend a ‘must have’ for all us accident prone vapers? Or is it durable enough to stand up to the toughest of environments? We’ll soon find out!
The GeekVape Aegis Legend Kit currently comes in 5 different colour combinations. All with a black silicone body, but different side panels, fire buttons and leather inserts. But today we will be looking at the Black and Orange version of the kit.
Torture tests will be added as and when they are conducted! So please come back soon to see what I put this device through! For an idea of what I mean check out my Geekvape Aegis review here. You can also check out Michelles review of the Geekvape Aegis Mini mod here.
This device was sent to us for the purposes of this review. As always, my opinions are honest and my own.

GeekVape Aegis Legend Kit Build Quality & Design
Aero Mesh Tank (4ml Version)
Drip Tip/Top Cap:
The drip tip is 810 sized and made out of a marbled resin.
Underneath the top cap it has a seal to prevent any leakage.
Top Fill Port:
Unscrewing the top cap reveals the two, kidney shaped filling ports. I would say they’re a little too small for my liking. A few mm wider would have gone down an absolute treat with me.
I just found them that little bit too small and sometimes I found myself dripping e-liquid over the side.
The Airflow Base:
On the base we have the airflow control ring. It is very smooth to adjust, but has the right amount of stiffness to not let it adjust whilst it is in your pocket or bag. The airflow holes come in the form of two large cyclops slots. There is also some ‘Aero’ branding on there to aid with grip.
Aero Mesh Tank – Overall:
Overall, the construction and look of this tank it pretty good! My main gripe is that when you tighten the top cap a little too tightly, it grips to the top of the tank and sometimes you end up unscrewing the whole tank apart. A little bit annoying, so keep an eye on it when you’re unscrewing!
The Aegis Legend Mod:
At the top of the device we we have the 510 connector which is more or less central. You can fit 30mm atomisers easily up here. I have been using my Vaperz Cloud X1 RDA on top and it looks pretty damn awesome!
Micro USB Port:
Towards the front of the mod we have the silicone bung that protects the micro USB port which is used for charging and updating the firmware when they are available.
As always, I would only recommend using an external charger to charge your batteries.
The Front of the Device
On the front of the Aegis Legend we have a trigger style fire button which has a nice click feel to it and is fireable from different locations on the button itself.
Below that we have the colour screen.
You can change into different colours by holding the + & – buttons whilst in the mode selection screen.
I have found the screen to be visible perfectly in all lighting conditions and is easily navigable too!
Either side of the Aegis Legend is wrapped in a metallic protective c-frame as well as being incased in a silicone rubber thats about 2-3mm thick.
The grip of the mod comes in the form of a leather panel that will be a different colour depending on what colour combination you go for.
The Battery Door
At the base of the GeekVape Aegis Legend we have the battery door. This time around it is a completely different design compared to the original Aegis device.
We have the usual branding and venting on the door, as well as a sliding catch that has grooves in it to aid sliding. And believe me, you’re going to need it!
After you have managed to prise open the door, it springs open like a catapult. I’m not sure what the need is for it being springy, but it just is.
On the inside of the battery door, the polarity of the batteries is clearly marked on the gold contact.
Surrounding the contacts there is a black silicone seal as well as smaller circular seals that I presume are there to perforate in the event of a battery venting.
The Aegis Mod – Overall:
Overall, the Aegis Legend mod is a very sturdy and durable mod! I have been using it as an all day mod for two weeks and has withstood being chucked in a van multiple amounts of times a day, as well as being in a constant dusty and dirty environment.
In terms of battery life, I am getting about a day of battery life whilst vaping the 0.2ohm coil at 66w.
Aero Mesh Tank Coil Performance
Mesh X1 0.2Ω Coil (30-90w)
The Mesh X1 0.2ohm Coil is the coil that comes pre-installed in the tank, and of course, the first coil that I have tested out. It is also recommended to be vaped anywhere between 60 and 80w.
I have found that it is best for flavour anywhere between 66 and 74w depending on what flavour you are using. It wicks perfectly, it produces flavour extremely well and my coil has lasted me the full two weeks of testing without any let downs and is still going strong!
Quad 0.15Ω Coil (60-80w)
- Looks and feels good
- xtremely durable
- Easy to use
- Good flavour
- Coil longevity
- Top cap tight
- Filling holes a bit small
- Battery door latch tight
- Battery life
Final Review Verdict
To round things off, I would say that the GeekVape Aegis Legend kit is a great all rounder device and kit. The tank produces some nice flavour and the Aegis mod packs a nice punch as well. The battery life is a bit of a negative though. I just think it zaps through batteries like mad.
How do i think it compares to the original GeekVape Legend though?
Well, they both had their pros and cons. But in all honesty, I prefer the original. It had a tougher look and felt a lot nicer in the hand without any pointy edges. Yeh, the battery life on that was bad too, but I thought GeekVape would have improved on that this time around…
