Our Verdict

It’s hard to find anything wrong with the M100. While it’s not radically different from any of the previous Aegis mods and not that big of an upgrade from the original Aegis Mini, the M100 delivers solid performance in both power and TC modes. The stable wattage output makes it a pleasure to use because the draw stays strong and consistent even as the battery gets near to dying. The battery life is decent and charging times are not too bad at just around an hour and 15 minutes for a full charge.

The design is clean and modern, and just looks great. This is a mod that is small enough to carry around with you every day, although it does have some weight to it. The IP68 water and dust resistance and shock resistance are also nice to have and the M100 passes water and drop tests flawlessly. This is a mod that can be dropped in water or dropped on concrete and continue vaping as if nothing ever happened.

The M100 is a mod that I think the majority of vapers will be happy with. If you already own the Aegis Mini or Aegis Max then the M100 is a small upgrade, but it’s still worth grabbing. If you don’t already own an Aegis device, this is the one to get.

The Aegis M100 (Aegis Mini 2) is the second iteration of Geekvape’s popular Aegis Mini mod and the latest addition to the “Aegis” family. While it is not listed as an Aegis device on the box, it is under the Aegis section on the Geekvape website and shares similar styling and features with other Aegis mods.

Like other Aegis mods, the M100 is waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof, but now features an upgraded IP68 rating, as opposed to the IP67 rating of previous Aegis devices. The M100 is an internal-battery mod and packs a 2500mAh battery that can be recharged with Type-C charging. It has a maximum wattage output of 100W and features a stable-output system that keeps the draw consistent even when the battery is near dead.

How does the Aegis M100 compare to the original Aegis Mini? Is it a good device overall? Should you buy it if you already own an Aegis device? I’ll answer these questions and more in this detailed review of the Aegis M100.

Design & Build Quality

I’m quite familiar with Geekvape’s Aegis line of mods and the Aegis M100 is very similar to previous devices in the way that it looks. To give you an idea of my experience with the Aegis devices, I have reviewed the Aegis Solo and the Aegis Max mods here on Versed Vaper but I’ve personally used nearly all of Geekvape’s Aegis mods. While the M100 is not designated as an Aegis mod on the box, it can be found under the Aegis section of Geekvape’s website. It also just has an Aegis look and feel to it. For all intents and purposes, this is an Aegis mod.

If you’ve used an Aegis mod before then you will know what to expect with the M100. It has a typical Aegis design, with a bezel wrapping around the leather grip at the back of the mod, but it looks very modern and clean in this iteration. The bezel is thinner than previous Aegis devices and the leather grip has three lines of thick stitching near the top that give it a classy look. There are metal plates on each side of the grip that have Geekvape printed onto them. Overall, this is a great looking mod.

A major difference from the Aegis Mini and older Aegis mods is that the M100 does not have a rubberized body. The body here is all metal, aside from the rubber on the underside of the device. Does this make a difference to the shock resistance? Not really, and I’ll get into this a little later on in this review, but it’s a welcome change because the rubber body on the Aegis Mini would have lint and dust sticking to it the second that you threw it into a pocket. This is something that does not happen with the M100.

The M100 is available in 10 different colors, all of which have different color combinations for the metal body, bezel, metal plates, and leather grip. I think that all of the colors look great. Geekvape chose great complementing colors for the leather and metal for all of them and I highly suggest taking a look at the color combinations. The color combinations are just too much for me to list here!

This is a mod that just feels solid. The metal body helps with that and it just feels like a mod that can be dropped without worry. Despite how solid it feels, it’s small and compact, although it does have some weight to it.

A nice feature is the physical locking switch. This switch is located on the side of the M100 and can be switched down to lock the entire mod, including the fire button. This is great for when you’re putting the M100 in a bag or pocket and I prefer it to having to click the power button or hold some combination of buttons to lock. Unfortunately there is no way to lock just the adjustment buttons; you can only lock the entire device.

This is a small mod so don’t expect large atomizers to fit without overhang. Atomizers up to 24mm in diameter fit nicely and sit flush on the top of the mod. The 510 pin is nice and springy, with a good amount of throw. 

Under a rubber bung at the top of the mod is where you can find the charging port. It’s nicely hidden and unless you know that the charging port is under there, you would never be the wiser. It’s very well integrated and fits the M100’s clean, streamlined appearance.

Around the front of the mod there is a large rocker-esque fire button, a large screen, and two small adjustment buttons. The fire button is sloped up on the bottom portion of the button and curves down on the top portion of the button, the same as other recent Geekvape devices like the Aegis Hero and Geekvape L200. The adjustment buttons are one piece, but sloped in to be lower in the middle which makes it easy to use each button individually.

The 1.08” display is clear and crisp. It’s also bright enough to be usable in most lighting situations, including outdoors, and the brightness can be changed using the fire button and adjustment buttons. The UI is clean and the same as the UI on the L200. The UI displays the mode, a battery indicator (no percentage), wattage, resistance, amperage, volts, and a puff timer/puff counter.

Compared to the Aegis Mini, the design of the M100 is smaller, looks cleaner, and remains cleaner thanks to the lack of a rubberized body. The M100 is a nicer looking mod overall, with build quality that is at the same level as all of Geekvape’s devices. 


Durability and IP68 Testing

The M100 has an IP68 rating. This means that it is dust-tight, and can survive being submerged in water up to 1.5m deep for up to 30 minutes. While I don’t think anyone is going to be going for a dive with their M100, this IP68 rating is a good reassurance that you can go to the beach with it, or drop it in a pool of water, and it will live to vape another day. 

I tested the water rating of the Geekvape M100 using my bathtub. I filled the tub up and then dropped the M100 into the water. I let it sit underwater, turned on, for 20 minutes before removing it. I then dried it off, attached a tank, and took a drag. The M100 continued to function fine, as if it had never been submerged in the first place. This testing was done a few days ago and it is still working flawlessly up to this point.

For the durability testing I took the M100 outside and let it fall from my hand onto concrete to simulate an accidental drop. I did this a total of 3 times. There are some scratches on the body and the rubber charging cover is scuffed but it still works. I also threw it into the air a few feet and let it hit the pavement. Again, some scratching and it got a little beat up, but it’s still working without any issues.


Geekvape M100 Features & Functions

The M100 is more powerful than the Aegis Mini and can fire up to 100W, up from the 80W maximum output of the Aegis Mini. It can output a maximum voltage of 8.5V. What is nice about the M100 is that it features a stable output, which keeps the performance consistent even when the battery is close to dying.

The M100 has all of the modes that you would expect from a modern day mod. It comes with the following modes: power mode, bypass, variable power curves, temperature control for stainless steel, nickel, titanium, and TCR. Pressing the fire button three times will open up the mode select. You then use the adjustment buttons to cycle through the modes.

When in TCR mode you can press the fire button to scroll down through the UI options, allowing you to lock the coil resistance, change the TCR value, or adjust the wattage.


Geekvape M100 Button Combinations

  • Turn the power on or off: Press the fire button 5 times.
  • Change modes: Press the fire button 3 times, then use the adjustment buttons to cycle through the modes. Long press the fire button to select the mode.
  • Change screen brightness: Hold the fire button and up or down adjustment button to increase or decrease the screen brightness.
  • Stealth mode (turn off the screen): Hold the fire button and both adjustment buttons.
  • Change TCR value: When in any of the TC modes you can press the fire button three times to bring up the mode select, then press the fire button again to select the different menu options. Press the fire button twice to get to the TCR value, then use the adjustment buttons to set the value. Long press the fire button when you are finished.

Battery & Charging

The M100 has a built-in 2500mAh battery which is an upgrade from the 2200mAh battery found on the original Aegis Mini. The battery life that you can get out of this mod is going to greatly depend on the coil that you use, its resistance, and the wattage that you’re vaping at, but the 2500mAh battery does provide decent battery life at low and mid wattages. Using a 0.40Ω coil at 50W allowed me to vape for about a day before having to charge the M100. Not incredible battery life by any means, but good enough for taking out with you for the day.

The charging times are not too bad either. The M100 recharges back to full in around an hour and 15 minutes and can be vaped while it charges. If you have a desk job where you’re close to a power source, you won’t have any issues with the M100 as you can plug it in while you work. If you have a job where you may not be close to a power source for the day, the mod will only last you if you’re using a lower resistance coil and vaping at lower wattages.


Performance

Geekvape M100 Mini 2 6

I’ve always enjoyed using Geekvape’s mods because they are reliable and usually provide good performance. The M100 is no different, but I actually liked this mod even more for the stable wattage output that it provides. With other mods, you can feel that the battery is dying because the draw gets weaker the lower the battery gets. This isn’t the case with the M100. Even when it’s nearly dead it still vapes as if it’s charged up. 

This mod performs reliably in power mode, and bypass and VPC modes work great too, although I did not use them very much. Temperature control mode performance is also pretty great, considering that this is not a DNA mod. The TC modes are accurate and work very consistently. Throttling when it should and not limiting power too early. It’s a great mod for TC for those who don’t want to shell out a bunch of money for a DNA mod.


Verdict

It’s hard to find anything wrong with the M100. While it’s not radically different from any of the previous Aegis mods and not that big of an upgrade from the original Aegis Mini, the M100 delivers solid performance in both power and TC modes. The stable wattage output makes it a pleasure to use because the draw stays strong and consistent even as the battery gets near to dying. The battery life is decent and charging times are not too bad at just around an hour and 15 minutes for a full charge.

The design is clean and modern, and just looks great. This is a mod that is small enough to carry around with you every day, although it does have some weight to it. The IP68 water and dust resistance and shock resistance are also nice to have and the M100 passes water and drop tests flawlessly. This is a mod that can be dropped in water or dropped on concrete and continue vaping as if nothing ever happened.

The M100 is a mod that I think the majority of vapers will be happy with. If you already own the Aegis Mini or Aegis Max then the M100 is a small upgrade, but it’s still worth grabbing. If you don’t already own an Aegis device, this is the one to get.

I started vaping in 2014 to quit smoking cigarettes. Many tries later, and I've been smoke free since 2015. Going from being a pack a day smoker, vaping changed my life for the better. Now, I want to help other smokers make the switch.

  • The M100 is smaller than the aegis mini?? Wow, the mini is quite small and that’s why I like it so much. If the M100 is indeed smaller, more powerful and more mAh, then that is quite an accomplishment!!
