The bottom line

Up until now, our team has long held the consensus that the Geekbar Pulse was the best disposable vape that you could get. However, after using the Pulse X, I think that the crown is going to have to be passed on.

The Pulse X does everything that the Pulse does, only slightly better. It also delivers on everything that you would want from a top disposable vape such as flavor(s), lots of puffs, good battery life, quick charging, and consistency. 

There are some aspects that could still be improved though, like the polarizing “starry display” light show; just being able to turn it off would have likely attracted way more vapers. Independent airflow adjustment is also something that I would have liked to have, but the two modes that it has now (MTL and loose MTL/RDL) are good enough that this isn’t a deal breaker.

If you’re looking for a high-puff disposable vape that does everything else excellently as well, I highly recommend picking up the Geekbar Pulse X.

GeekBar has quickly gone from ‘just a disposable brand by Geekvape’ to being known as one of the best disposable brands around. 

A lot of this shift has to do with GeekBar’s ultra-popular GeekBar Pulse device which was released in late 2023. The GeekBar Pulse brought 15000 puffs of great flavor, a great draw, and great battery life and all of this really stood out to vapers looking for a reliable and excellent disposable device.

If you’ve used the GeekBar Pulse and thought that it couldn’t be beat – think again. GeekBar has just come out with the follow-up to the Pulse, the Pulse X, and it might just be an even better device.

Like the Pulse, the GeekBar Pulse X brings two output modes which simultaneously adjust the airflow. It can reach up to 25000 puffs in Regular mode and up to 15000 puffs in Pulse mode, supported by the 18ml of ejuice inside.  It also brings an upgraded, curved UI with battery and ejuice readouts.

Is the Pulse X the new disposable vape to beat? Take a deep dive into GeekBar’s latest disposable with me to find out.

  • Size: 91.6mm x 57.4mm x 29mm
  • 820mAh Rechargeable battery
  • Type-C Quick-Charging
  • 2 Output Modes: Regular, Pulse
  • Up to 25,000 Puffs (Regular mode)
  • 5% (50mg) Nicotine content
  • Dual Mesh Coil
  • Draw activated
  • MTL/RDL draw
  • 15 Flavor options

Design & Build Quality

  • Geekbar Pulse X Disposables - 6

The Pulse X is completely changed from the original Pulse. This isn’t simply a redesign but instead looks like GeekBar started over again from the ground up. While the shape is similar, a box with rounded and smoothed out corners, edges, and sides, pretty much everything else on the Pulse X is new.

First off is the size. The original Pulse was already getting towards what I would consider as a large disposable but the Pulse X takes this to a new level! The Pulse X is a beefy 91.6mm tall, 57.4mm wide, and 29mm thick. With the two devices side by side, it looks like the Pulse X started eating right, working out, and hit a growth spurt – it’s a massive disposable.

With that being said, the Pulse X is definitely best suited for vapers who don’t mind sticking to one flavor at a time. I found it difficult to take more than one of these around with me just because of the sheer size. It’s almost like having a box mod in your pocket so if portability is a main concern for you, you’ll want to think twice about the Pulse X.

Design-wise, the Pulse X is gorgeous. I always thought that the original Pulse looked nice but the Pulse X looks way more refined, modern, and professional. The large, curved display takes up the majority of the body, with the rest made up of a plastic shell. The plastic is finished in a satin paint that makes it look like metal, which I think looks great.

For such a large device, it was surprising to me how sleek and elegant the Pulse X looks. Branding isn’t too much either, with GEEK BAR printed on the front and a PULSE X logo and flavor on the back.

Part of this elegance comes down to the “starry light display” which I’m sure is going to be a polarizing feature of the Pulse X. Some are going to like it while others will just think it’s gaudy. Either way, it definitely makes the Pulse X more flashy and eye-catching than the Pulse. More on this in the features section.

The mouthpiece is like the one on the Pulse; plastic with a silicone coating that makes it slightly flexible. It feels great to vape with and even adds enough grip to where you can hold it in your mouth briefly if you need or want to.

Overall the Pulse X has a great design and even better build quality and it looks like a clear and natural upgrade over the design of the original. It’s larger by quite a bit, which might be a disqualifying factor for some but, like it or not, that’s the way that disposable vapes are going these days.


Features

  • Geekbar Pulse X Disposables - 15

The Geekbar Pulse X takes displays to a whole other level from what you might have seen before. I mentioned earlier that the display takes up the majority of the body. When you activate it by taking a draw, you get a bit of a light show. The Pulse X has what Geekbar calls a “starry display”. There are two animations, depending on which mode you’re using (regular or Pulse).

When in regular mode, the display lights up to show glistening and scintillating stars. In Pulse mode, lines appear to form a constellation with the stars. 

All of the flavors display the same constellation, which is slightly disappointing because I think it would have been really cool to get different popular constellations on different devices. Missed opportunity but I’m guessing that it would have greatly increased production costs.

As a side note, and I’m no astronomer so don’t quote me on this, but it doesn’t appear to be an actual constellation that is displayed on the Pulse X. 

The little light show is neat but I’m sure that it won’t be to everyone’s liking. I don’t love it and I don’t really hate it, but there’s no doubt that it grabs the attention of all those around you. 

In addition to the starry display, the Pulse X also displays ejuice and battery level indicators. The battery level is near the top of the screen, displayed as a percentage, with a lightning bolt above it. The ejuice readout is towards the bottom of the screen and also displayed as a percentage, with a droplet icon below it. In the middle of the two readouts is a circle that looks like it’s made of very small stars. When in Pulse mode, an X appears inside of the circle.

Switching between the two modes is done through a switch on the bottom of the Pulse X. There are three settings: regular, pulse, and closed. The ‘closed’ setting functions as a child-lock/off switch, which is useful for sure. 

The mode switch also serves the dual function of airflow control. In Pulse mode the switch leaves three holes open for airflow and this provides a loose MTL/restricted direct lung draw. Setting the switch to ‘Regular’ mode closes off one of the airflow holes, leaving two holes open. This provides a medium mouth-to-lung draw. While not as useful as a full-on adjustable airflow slider, the Pulse X caters to the two most popular draw-styles for disposable devices and most vapers will like the draw.

The Pulse X comes with 18ml of eliquid and can reach up to 25000 puffs in regular mode. When used in Pulse mode, which has a stronger output, the puff count drops down to 15000. The original Pulse offered up to 15000 puffs at maximum so this is quite an upgrade in the puffs department.

The Pulse X has an 820mAh battery, another upgrade over the 650mAh battery found on the original Pulse. Two to three days of heavy usage is what I averaged when using the Pulse X in regular mode so battery life is excellent. It also recharges very quickly thanks to the Type-C quick charging; it only takes 20 minutes for it to charge up to 80% and another 15 minutes for it to be fully charged.

Last but not least, the Pulse X uses GeekBar’s/Geekvape’s “VPU Technology” and features dual mesh coils inside. This just means that it’s been engineered to heat more evenly, avoid burning, and make for better wicking. This in turn provides better flavor, better clouds, and a more consistent experience.


Flavors

Geekbar Pulse X Disposables - 3

The Pulse X is available in fifteen different flavors, most of which are different from the original Pulse. There are some that have stuck around, such as Blue Razz Ice and Watermelon Ice, but the majority of the flavors are new. The full list of available flavors is:

  • Banana Taffy Freeze
  • Blackberry B-Pop
  • Blue Rancher
  • Blue Razz Ice
  • Grapefruit Refresher
  • Lemon Heads
  • Lime Berry Orange
  • Miami Mint
  • Orange Fcuking Fab
  • Raspberry Peach Lime
  • Sour Apple Ice
  • Sour Fcuking Fab
  • Sour Mango Pineapple
  • Strawberry B-Pop
  • Watermelon Ice

I’m going to describe how five of these flavors taste to me and what I think of them. However, keep in mind that just because I like a flavor that does not mean that you will like it. Similarly, if I don’t like a flavor this does not mean that you will not like it. This is solely my subjective opinion.

Sour Apple Ice

There’s a nice green apple flavor that is sweet but also a bit bitter. It’s a bold and dense flavor that also brings some tartness to the palate too. A slight hint of ice finishes off the flavor but it’s rather mild and not too icy.

Sour Fcuking Fab

I wish that I could tell you what flavors are in here but I can’t. Not knowing the flavors didn’t matter to me though because it just tastes like fruit, candy, and a bit of sourness. It’s really great but very sweet so I had to pace myself with the draws. Too many too quickly and it’s too much.

Grapefruit Refresher

The bold grapefruit taste is really refreshing, especially since you rarely find grapefruit flavors that aren’t just secondary to another fruit flavor. Just the right amount of sweetness and a natural grapefruit flavor combine to make this one of my favorite flavors for the Pulse X.

Sour Mango Pineapple

This flavor is another winner for me. It’s exactly as the name says – a slightly sour flavor with mango and pineapple in equal parts. I taste the sour notes from the inhale and then get a mix of mango and pineapple that are matched in the strength of the flavor.

Lime Berry Orange

This flavor was another big hit with me; I just really love unique mixes that I haven’t tried before. A tart lime flavor hits my tongue immediately on the inhale, followed by a candy-like mix of oranges and berries. It tastes like a popsicle in a way because it’s not natural, sort of drink-like in sweetness, and has a candied flavor. Very tasty.


Performance

Geekbar Pulse X Disposables - 4

I’ve used a lot of different disposable devices and so it takes a lot for one to stand out from the crowd. The Geekbar Pulse X somehow manages to do just that though. I’ve been using these for nearly a month now and in that time I’ve been absolutely impressed with the consistency and flavor.

Flavor is one of the, if not the most, important factors for a disposable vape. If it doesn’t taste good, why would you use it? The Pulse X covers this front handily with excellent flavor coming from the dual mesh coils and VPU tech that Geekbar has put into it. No matter which flavor I used, I got bold flavor that really hits the tastebudds with a punch.

The draw also remains the same, no matter if it’s dozens, hundreds, or thousands of puffs. I would estimate that I’ve vaped a few thousand puffs on some of these (judging by the ejuice level readout) and there’s no difference from when I first opened them to now. Flavor, vapor, and everything else has stayed just as good as when I started.

If there was a way to turn off the starry display completely that would have made this an even better device. I personally didn’t mind that it was there but there were definitely occasions when I wish I could just vape without a light show lighting up the entire side of the device. Something as simple as a button to toggle the stars would have made the Pulse X way less polarizing for users.

While using the Pulse X, I switched pretty often between the regular and pulse mode. For a denser draw I would switch to Pulse mode and often forget that it was even set there. These only come in 50mg/ml nicotine strength but I didn’t find them to be too strong at all. They’re satisfying without a doubt but anyone who is used to the nicotine strength won’t find them too strong.


Verdict

Up until now, our team has long held the consensus that the Geekbar Pulse was the best disposable vape that you could get. However, after using the Pulse X, I think that the crown is going to have to be passed on.

The Pulse X does everything that the Pulse does, only slightly better. It also delivers on everything that you would want from a top disposable vape such as flavor(s), lots of puffs, good battery life, quick charging, and consistency. 

There are some aspects that could still be improved though, like the polarizing “starry display” light show; just being able to turn it off would have likely attracted way more vapers. Independent airflow adjustment is also something that I would have liked to have, but the two modes that it has now (MTL and loose MTL/RDL) are good enough that this isn’t a deal breaker.

If you’re looking for a high-puff disposable vape that does everything else excellently as well, I highly recommend picking up the Geekbar Pulse X.
