The most rugged Pod Mod on the market, the Aegis Boost can survive any environment while delivering amazing flavour with power to spare
2019 was a busy year for GeekVape, one of the most venerable and innovative vape companies in the industry. The Chinese firm closed the decade with a veritable barrage of ever more powerful and beautifully crafted devices, as well as refining their best-loved lines such as the Aegis range which boasts some of their most feature-packed mods and tanks in rhino-tough designs. Last year alone, Vapestore received the mighty 200w Aegis X mod, the cloud-hurling Aegis Legend mod and the best-selling Aegis Mini mod and sub-ohm tank.
Not to be outdone by the likes of the Smok RPM40 or the Voopoo Vinci, however, GeekVape also introduced their first pod mod, the Aegis Boost. If you haven’t yet come across pod mods, think compact all-in-one devices that offer the convenience of refillable pod kits with powerful mods that contain a host of useful features.

The Aegis Boost shares its rugged, multi-faceted design with its Aegis stablemates as well as GeekVape’s choice of premium materials that include food grade silicone rubber for sealing and waterproofing, corrosion-resistant Zinc alloy body frame, and tear-resistant leather sleeve. The Boost even employs a handy plastic cap to protect the drip tip.
For sheer aesthetics, though, there simply isn’t a pod kit like it, with its striking contours and silicone and metal panels paired with precision-engineered ergonomics that makes the Boost fit the hand wonderfully.
At only 120 grams and a little over 10cm in height, the Boost is as light and pocket-friendly as it is robust and stylish.
The 2ml pod features a super-comfortable drip tip – protected by that cap we’ve already mentioned – and an easy top-fill system for replenishing your e-liquid. It also boasts a unique air flow valve you can use to precisely dial in your preferred draw with a simple twist; a feature we expect will be greatly imitated on similar devices in 2020.
Unlike other pod mods, the pod on the Aegis eschews magnets and fixes in place with a reliable lock and release clasp. Click it into place and this pod isn’t going anywhere, which is yet another reason why the Aegis Boost is particularly well-suited to those who like energetic, outdoor sports and activities.
The Aegis Boost comes with two different coils to suit either MTL (Mouth to Lung) vaping and DTL (Direct to Lung), and each coil nails those two styles perfectly, helped by the mod’s 40w power output that allows most vapers to find a power output that suits them.
The 0.3 ohm coil is recommended at 25-33w and is suited to thicker, high-VG sub-ohm liquids, whilst the 0.6 ohm coil is recommended for use at a lower 15-25w and can handle classic high-PG, nic salt and 50/50 e-liquids. Both are push-to-fit style coils which makes swapping them out a breeze.
The Aegis Boost mod itself is simple and functional with a fire button, up-down keys and a clear OLED display that reads wattage, resistance and battery capacity. Under the hood there’s the newest GeekVape AS chipset that allows for super-fast firing and a host of safety features including over-discharge, short circuit protection, over-current and overcharge protection. Packing a 1500mAh built-in battery, the Aegis Boost easily lasted us a whole day of sustained use
The Aegis Boost proved equally impressive using both types of coils, providing a rich, warm direct-lung vape and a supremely satisfying mouth-to lung vape no matter what liquid we threw at it. Flavours just sing on this device. From piquant menthols to zesty sweet fruits, dense and sugary desserts to classic tobaccos; the Aegis Boost pod mod simply excels on flavour. As far as cloud production goes, the Boost doesn’t quite compete with the muscular sub-ohm kits but vaping on the pod mod still gave us satisfying clouds.
