Geekvape L200 (Aegis Legend 2)
The Geekvape L200 (Aegis Legend 2) is a dual-battery box mod by popular vape manufacturer Geekvape. It sticks to the same winning formula that made the original Aegis Legend such a hit, but features a smaller and lighter design, an improved IP68 water and dust resistance rating, and a few other changes.
All it takes is a quick glance at Geekvape’s product offerings and ratings to see that they rarely disappoint. From pod vapes like the Aegis Pod and Aegis Boost Plus, to single battery mods like the Aegis Solo and Aegis Max, to dual battery mods like the Aegis X, Geekvape make some incredible devices.
Is the Geekvape L200 a legendary mod or just another ‘Legend’? I find out in this review.

Design & Build Quality
Looking at the Geekvape L200, it’s immediately apparent that this is the Aegis Legend 2. The general design remains the same with the signature ‘Legend’ metal skeleton frame bezel, leather grip pad, and rocker-style power and adjustment buttons. But while the general design is the same, there are still a host of changes that Geekvape have made with this device.
For one, the L200 is 30% lighter and 15% smaller than the original and it’s a notable difference. It’s no longer bulky and cumbersome, but instead comfortable and refined. It overall just looks much more premium and high-end. It’s a great looking mod and in my opinion it’s one of the nicest dual battery mods on the market.
If overhang bothers you, then prepare to be bothered. The catch here with the slimmer body is that tanks larger than about 23mm will overhang. That’s a real issue because unless you’re using a mini tank, most tanks are going to be hanging over the edges.
The most obvious change from the original is the materials used for the body. Instead of a rubberized exterior like the one on the Aegis Legend, the L200 has a mostly metal body and frame. You’ll only find a silicone plug covering the Type-C port at the top of the device, and on the bottom of the device covering the battery door.
Now at first, an all-metal body concerned me. I thought that the reason the original Legend was so durable and shock-resistant was because of the rubber shell. If you dropped it, it kind of bounced off the ground and absorbed all of the impact instead of breaking. But apparently, the L200 is even more shock resistant than its predecessor, despite the lack of a silicone shell. I’ve dropped it countless times (a few times on purpose, a few times by accident) and it is still working fine. The metal body has taken a beating and shows the wear much more obviously than the original Legend, but it does hold up to being dropped.
In addition to being shock resistant, it’s also water and dust resistant as well, complete with an IP68 rating. This means that it’s impervious to dust and can survive being submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. I tested this water resistance myself and it should come as no surprise that it passed with flying colors. After being submerged for close to 30 minutes it still functioned afterwards and it continues to function flawlessly to this day.
The L200 has a 1.08” TFT full color display. It’s super sharp and bright, and the UI is visually pleasing and easy to use. I’ve always loved Geekvape’s UI’s and this one is no different. Everything is laid out to be easy to read and there’s no confusion about what you’re seeing. It’s simple, effective, and to the point.
The buttons are all rocker-style and take the perfect amount of pressure to activate. They aren’t too easy to press and do take some effort, but it’s just how I want a button to feel. This ensures it won’t activate too easily in a pocket or bag.
For added protection against accidental activation, the L200 features a physical locking switch that you can slide down to lock and up to unlock. When locked, this stops the fire button and adjustment buttons from activating. It’s a really useful feature and one that I use all the time before throwing the L200 in my pocket.
The battery door here is solid. It’s spring loaded and does not feel flimsy or fragile at all. It springs open by way of a large slider switch which then reveals a snug, but not tight, battery compartment. 18650 batteries fit just right, but there is some battery rattle if you shake the L200 around.
As a whole, the fit and finish of the L200 is leaps and bounds ahead of the original. It looks and feels much more refined and gives the feeling of a very premium mod while still being an extremely durable and capable dual battery mod.
Features & Functions
The L200 can fire at up to 200W and comes with Power, TC, TCR, VPC, and Bypass modes. The UI is well laid out — your mode is displayed at the top of the screen, followed by two individual battery indicators, wattage, coil resistance, amperage, voltage, and a puff counter.
Pressing the fire button 3 times brings up the modes menu where you then use the adjustment buttons to cycle through the modes. Once you’re hovering your desired mode you can press the fire button again to then lock the resistance, change the wattage in TC mode, or clear the puff counter. This is also how you change the TCR value in TCR mode.
That’s really all there is to the L200. It’s simple and easy to use, but still offers all of the modes that vapers will want. That’s a big plus for this mod because it means it can be used by new vapers or experienced vapers all the same.

The L200 hasn’t only improved in its design but in its performance as well. While the original was and continues to be a great mod, the L200 has greatly improved temperature control mode performance, along with power mode performance that is still top of its class.
In power mode the L200 can fire at up to 200W and can output up to around 45A. This is really good for a dual battery mod and, along with the max voltage of 12V, means that the L200 can output enough power for any type of coil. No matter if you’re using a very low resistance coil or a high resistance coil, this mod is a great performer.
I tested the L200 using a few builds on my Wotofo SRPNT RDA. The firing speed is instant and the power is steady and accurate. No matter if I used a 0.15Ω coil or a 0.65Ω coil, the performance is exactly what I look for in a dual battery mod. It does not hit weak at all.
As I mentioned, the temperature control performance here has been greatly improved. The original Aegis Legend was not great for TC by any means but that has changed here. The L200 is super accurate with TC and performs how you would expect a good TC mod to perform. It cuts off power when the wick is drying out but doesn’t do it prematurely. It also vapes very well from 400-450°F and provides a warm and pleasant vape.
Newer isn’t always better but in this case, it really is. The L200 is more refined and polished than the original while still managing to be just as durable and perform even better. The cons to this device are few and far between and realistically, none of them are make or break. As a whole, the L200 is a big improvement in a lot of ways and really brings the ‘Legend’ name up to date.
Whether you own an Aegis Legend already, or don’t own an Aegis device at all, the L200 is a good mod to pick up.
have you ever dropped this trash? it’s all plastic inside and breaks very easily.
I have dropped it but other than some scuffs and scratches there’s nothing wrong with my unit.
Worst mod I ever bought. 2 months old, knocked it of the kitchen table and it split in two. Whole top part came off. Maybe a factory issue?
I’m using TCR mode and I’ve got a capitalized T just under the ohm sign saying 1177 I need to know what that number is and what it’s for
The T and number is the TCR value. You have to set it manually, and this TCR value is different for each material that you use in temperature control mode.
Setting the TCR value correctly allows the mod to properly regulate the temperature of the coil according to the temperature that you set. You can check out this page here for more information (including the proper TCR values for different materials):
Does this mod have a find if lost application built in?
It does not.
How can I lock the watt setting? I understand there’s a child’s lock on the side but it’s very easy to increase the watts without knowing it and then taking a hit that just about kills you cuz it’s up to 400 watts. All the modes I’ve owned you could lock the watts by pressing the ‘-‘ and ‘+’ at the same time.
Also is it normal for my tank to get hot after a few hits?
Hey Gwyn. Unfortunately, the only way to lock the wattage is to use the child lock. Before you put the device down or in your pocket you’ll want to activate the physical locking switch.
Yes, that’s perfectly normal!
Ok Thank You. What a bummer there’s not a watt lock too. For some reason when I’m holding my mode sometimes the watt gets turned up all the way and I don’t notice and take the worst hit experience ever.
I just ordered one of the Geekvape pods. I’m hoping that it will end up being another great Geekvape product!!
