Our Verdict

The Geekvape T200 kit has a number of good things going for it: a nice design, a beautiful screen, IP68 water and dust resistance, good drop resistance, and excellent flavor and performance, just to name a few. The Aegis Touch mod is gorgeous and very solid. It delivers exactly what you would expect from a flagship vape mod, and it doesn’t disappoint with its consistent power output and excellent reliability. It really is a great mod.

The large touch screen concerns me for durability, but in my testing it held up well and didn’t scratch or crack. I can’t say that it definitely won’t crack if you drop it just the right way, because I think that it probably will, but I haven’t experienced this to say so myself. But if durability is your main concern, I would probably go with the Geekvape L200 and not for this mod with the large and very-breakable-looking screen.

Would I choose to use this mod over all of the other mods that I own? Unfortunately, the answer is no and it has nothing to do with the performance and everything to do with the UI and touch screen.

All of the extra steps involved just to change the wattage make me want to use a regular button-controlled mod instead, even if things like changing the vaping mode might be simpler to do. Sure, you might not be changing the wattage all of the time, but when you’re trying to make small adjustments to find just the right wattage for your tank or coil, you’ll wish that you had some physical adjustment buttons to press instead of going through 5 steps on this touch screen.

There’s no denying that the Geekvape T200 is cool and innovative, but it’s just not the device for me. Maybe you’ll like the advanced look and feel of the UI though.  If you think you will, then like I said, there’s nothing wrong with the design, build quality, or performance of the mod which would stop me from recommending it.

If you vape (and you probably do since you’re reading this), then you’ve likely heard of Geekvape. Geekvape is one of the largest and most popular vaping manufacturers in the world, and their products span multiple categories: vape mods, pod vapes, subohm tanks, and more, Geekvape offers them all.

One of Geekvape’s latest releases is a new box mod, the Geekvape T200 (Aegis Touch). It has a large 2.4 inch full color screen that is controlled exclusively through touch. The only physical controls are a physical locking switch and the fire button — everything else is managed on the touch screen.

Like Geekvape’s other Aegis products, the T200 is built to be durable and it is IP68 water and dust resistant. It is also shock-resistant to withstand knocks and drops. The T200 takes two 18650 batteries and it can fire at up to 200W.

If you go for the T200 kit, then you’ll also get the Geekvape Z sub-ohm tank. This is a top airflow tank with isolated airflow pathways that transport air to the base of the tank. It uses Geekvape’s Z series coils and this kit comes with two coils in the box: a 0.4Ω coil and a 0.15Ω coil. The tank will hold up to 5ml of ejuice with the bubble glass installed.

Design & Build Quality: Geekvape T200 Mod

  • Geekvape T200 Kit - 1 (1)

The Geekvape T200 is a really nice mod and it looks like Geekvape spent a lot of time on refining the design and ensuring that the build quality is top-notch. It has a rectangular shape that is typical of dual battery box mods, but the back and edges are rounded which makes it look and feel thinner than it is. It’s actually a nice size for a dual battery mod and the dimensions are 141mm tall, 56mm wide, and 31mm deep. It’s still hefty, as most dual battery mods are, but the feel in my hand is really nice.

I’ll get straight to the main feature of the T200 — the big ol’ touchscreen. It’s a massive 2.4 inch screen and it’s full color. It takes up nearly the entire front of the device and it’s very high-resolution and crisp. The panel that lays on top of the screen doesn’t have any flex and doesn’t seem to scratch or scuff easily. The touchscreen itself is very responsive and easy to use. Like other touch screen devices, the screen picks up fingerprints and quickly gets dirty so if you’re obsessive about having a clean screen like I am, then you’ll be spending a lot of time wiping it down.

The T200 is also known as the Aegis Touch, and as an Aegis device it keeps a few of the key “Aegis” design elements. Overall, it’s like a touchscreen version of the Geekvape L200 and you can see that the same design queues and styling were used. There’s some rubber present on the device, but it’s kept to a minimum. It’s more of a trim than a substantial design material. Along the outer edge of the top of the mod there’s rubber trim, and it extends to right above the front of the mod where the panel for the screen is. There’s also rubber just below the panel where the screen sits, and this extends onto the battery door and onto the bottom of the mod.

The rubber on the top of the mod is there for aesthetics and a little shock resistance if you drop the mod. The rubber on the bottom also serves the same purpose, but with the added annoyance of adding grip which makes the mod topple over if you hit it accidentally. 

The entire top of the mod serves as the 510 plate because there’s no round 510 plate built in. Instead, there’s just a hole in the top of the mod which will fit the threaded 510 connection on your tank. I like this design because it means that tanks sit flush on the mod and without any sort of gap. This top plate features a brushed metal finish.

The main frame of the Geekvape T200 is made of metal which features a satin finish. The main feature of the back of the mod (just like other Aegis devices) is the grip. On my silver review unit it’s a grey colored pad that feels like it’s made of polyurethane. It’s smooth and features four lines of stitching, two on each side. It definitely doesn’t feel like leather and it has a firm but semi-squishy feel. It feels like there’s a thin layer of foam that is backing the panel. A tiny “GEEKVAPE Touch” is embossed on the bottom of the grip. It’s a nice grip and although it’s not leather, it feels and looks to be of high-quality.

The bezel that surrounds the grip features a shiny brushed metal finish. The combination of the matte brushed top plate, satin frame, and shiny brushed bezel, all come together to make a really great looking mod. They’re different finishes, but they work well together.

On one side of the bezel you’ll find “GEEKVAPE” engraved in the bezel and a physical locking switch. You can slide this switch down to lock the entire device, including the fire button, so that it doesn’t accidentally fire or change settings in your pocket. I like physical locking switches and find them very useful to have, because it saves you the time and hassle of having to turn the entire device off.

  • Geekvape T200 Kit - Battery Door Internals

On the other side of the bezel is where you’ll find the power button. It’s a large rectangular button with cut edges and it’s very springy when pushed. The power button feels really great to use and it’s very tactile and responsive. There’s small circular lines in the power button to add grip so your finger doesn’t slip when you use it.

Located just below the power button is a Type-C port that can be used for firmware updates or, in worst case scenarios, emergency charging. I recommend using a dedicated vape battery charger to charge your vape batteries as it will ensure that they charge correctly and evenly. Remember, a vape mod is built to vape and should not be used exclusively to charge your batteries.

The battery door is spring loaded and the door is firm and does not flop around at all. Both the inside and the outside of the battery door are completely encased in rubber, so this should add a good amount of shock resistance to the door. The contacts for the batteries are made of metal of course, but it sits on top of a rubber pad that ensures that the batteries stay snug inside and don’t move. The Geekvape T200 takes two 18650 batteries to function.


Durability Testing

If you’re skeptical about the durability of the Geekvape T200, then you’re not alone. When I saw the large touchscreen and almost complete absence of rubber, I thought to myself “There’s no way that this thing survives drops”. And of course, I couldn’t just leave it at the thought, so I tested the durability myself.

First up was the water resistance. I have a deep tub that is nearly 2 feet deep, which I filled up with cold water to do this test. I removed the tank, left the batteries inserted, and kept the T200 on for this test. I left it in the water for 25 minutes and even tried navigating the menu while underwater, but (as I thought) the touchscreen did not detect the touches.

After taking it out of the water, I dried it off and it was still powered on and functioning properly. I reattached the Geekvape Z tank and vaped and it worked, and it’s been functioning fine ever since. 

After taking it out of the water, there was some water that was stuck just under the front panel but it did not affect the functioning of the device. I also opened the battery door to check and, while there was water underneath the battery door, the rubber pad that I mentioned earlier (which holds the batteries in place and seals them in the battery compartment) prevented any water from reaching the batteries. Overall, the T200 passes the water test with flying colors.

The shock resistance testing is what I really wanted to see though (and probably what you’re wondering about, too). I dropped the T200 onto carpet, my hardwood flooring, and onto concrete, all from around 5 feet up. After these drops, it came out relatively unscathed aside from a few marks and some wear on the metal body and grip. 

For the real test of the screen, I dropped the T200 screen-side-down onto the metal legs of my computer chair. After hearing the sound that it made when it hit, I was sure that the screen broke. But thankfully it didn’t, and there aren’t even any marks or scratches on the screen. 

After these drop tests, the battery door is also still in good working order which is a good sign for the longevity of this device. The battery door is usually the first thing to fail when dropping a mod, but I think that the rubber around the door on the T200 is what saved it from breaking off.


Features & Functions: Geekvape T200 Mod

  • Geekvape T200 Screen - Default UI

The Geekvape T200 is very different from other vape mods, and it’s even very different from other Geekvape mods. It still comes with the modes that you would expect to see from a brand’s flagship vape mod, but the UI and how you use the device is unique due to this being a touch-controlled device. I found that the touch controls made the device a little more complicated to use and it definitely takes some getting used to, but once you know how to use the device it becomes easier. 

The Aegis Touch comes with the following modes: SMART, Power, TC-SS, TCR, VPC, and Bypass. You’ll notice that there’s no TC mode for titanium or nickel, but if you use these materials then you can still set the TCR value in TCR mode. 

SMART mode is a beginner-friendly wattage mode. In this mode, the wattage range is locked to the recommended wattage range for the coil that you are using. For example, the 0.15Ω coil can only be set between 70-90W in SMART mode. This ensures that you’re vaping the coil at the correct wattage, and prevents you from setting the wattage too high and burning the coil. 

Power mode is your typical wattage mode. In this mode, you can set the Geekvape T200 to any wattage between 5-200W, regardless of the resistance of your coil or which coil you are using. This mode is what you should use if you’re using rebuildable tanks, or really any tank other than the Geekvape Z tank that comes with the kit.

To turn the mod on, press the fire button 5 times. Here you’ll be greeted with the default UI and screen. There are actually 4 themes that you can choose from in the settings menu (which is accessed by swiping up or down on the screen), but all of them display the same information. You’ll see individual battery life indicators with percentage, your current mode, your wattage, coil resistance, amperage, voltage, puff time, and a puff counter. 

The UI of the default theme is nice, clean, and to the point, and it’s my favorite of the four themes that are available. The other themes are a spaceship based theme, a planet theme, and a soccer ball theme. If you choose one of these other 3 themes, the icon will animate when you take a puff (the spaceship will blast off, the planet will rotate, and the soccer ball will spin). I think it’s cheesy, but if you find it cool then more power to you; I won’t judge. You can also choose from a few different wallpapers for each theme by accessing the settings menu (swipe up on the screen and select settings > wallpaper). 

The touch controls make the device slightly more complicated to use than a button-controlled device, mainly because it adds steps to the process of doing anything on the mod. For example, to change the wattage you have to press the fire button to turn on the screen (if it’s been a while since you’ve used it), slide the screen to unlock it, tap the wattage to enter the adjustment menu, swipe the screen to turn the wattage up or down, and then hit OK. With a button-controlled device, you would just press the adjustment buttons until you get to the wattage that you want and that’s it. 

Another example of these extra steps is accessing the menu. Press the fire button to turn on the screen, slide to unlock it, swipe the screen up or down to enter the menu. With a button controlled device, you would typically press the fire button 3 times and you’re in the menu system. This one isn’t as bad as adjusting the settings, but it’s still an overcomplication to accomplish simple steps. As the saying goes “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. 

Aside from the extra steps, using the Aegis Touch is rather intuitive. I figured out how to use the device purely from playing around with it, and I’m sure that most technically savvy people will be able to do the same. To change the wattage, you tap on the wattage, scroll through the wattage to change it, and then select OK. To change modes, you can swipe left or right over the wattage/mode and easily change between modes. Accessing the menu is done by swiping up or down on the screen. Here you can choose your mode, as well as access the settings.  To go back, swipe up or down on the screen again. Once you’re at the mode selection menu, select a mode to go back to the main screen.

The Geekvape T200 automatically locks the screen after 10 seconds of inactivity, and the screen will turn off after 30 seconds.


Geekvape Z Sub-Ohm Tank 2021

  • Geekvape Z Sub Ohm Tank - 1

If you buy the Geekvape T200 kit then you’ll also get the Geekvape Z subohm tank. This is the 2021 version of the tank and it comes with two bubble glass tanks, both of which give the tank a 5ml ejuice capacity. The Geekvape Z is a top airflow tank, so it’s pretty well leak-proof, but the flavor is still very good because the top airflow directs air to the bottom of the tank. 

The Geekvape Z uses Geekvape’s Z series of coils and there are five coils available, so you have choices for how you want to vape:

  • 0.4Ω Coil (50-60W)
  • 0.25Ω Coil (45-57W)
  • 0.20Ω Coil (70-80W)
  • 0.15Ω Coil (70-90W)
  • 0.15Ω SS316 Coil (60-70W)

You get two of these coils with the Geekvape T200 kit: one 0.15Ω coil and one 0.4Ω coil. The recommended wattage ranges for these coils is a bit confusing, because there’s differing information on Geekvape’s website. On the coils, the 0.15Ω coil has a wattage range of 70-85W, but on their website it states 80-90W. The 0.4Ω coil has a wattage range of 50-60W on the coil, but Geekvape’s website says 60-70W. From my testing, the 0.15Ω coil is good up to 90W, while the 0.4Ω coil is good up to 70W.

Geekvape Z Sub Ohm Tank - Coils

These coils are plug and play and push into the bottom of the tank. There are two notches on the coil that need to line up with the notches in the tank, so take care to line these up properly so that the coil seats in fully and correctly. 

The drip tip is a removable 810 and the o-ring is inside of the top cap. The top cap comes off with a quarter turn and this is how you access the fill ports. The fill ports are recessed into the top of the tank to prevent leaking, and the top cap has a silicone o-ring that creates a good seal when it is on the tank.

Overall, the Geekvape Z is a nice sub ohm tank and while the design is very simple, the build quality is good and it’s as easy to use as a subohm tank should be. The number of coils available also gives you good options for how you want to vape and there’s bound to be a coil that you like.


Performance

Geekvape T200 Kit - 4

As a whole, the performance of this kit is excellent. A kit is only as good as the sum of its parts, and in this case, the parts are great. Wattage mode/SMART mode performance delivers good flavor and vapor with the Geekvape Z tank and either coil. The 0.15Ω coil worked best for me at 80W because the vapor is just right in terms of warmth, and the flavor is perfect. You can safely push this coil all the way up to 90W and still get consistent performance without risk of a burnt or dry hit, but the vapor gets pretty hot even with the airflow open. 

The 0.4Ω coil is also great within the recommended wattage range and I liked it best at 60W. It’s not quite as flavorful or ‘punchy’ as the 0.15Ω coil so it was my least-favorite coil of the two, but I still enjoyed using it. 

You can get a direct lung or restricted direct lung draw with either coil, depending on how you set the airflow. A consideration for which coil to use could come down to battery life, as you can use the 0.4Ω coil and the lower wattage requirements to get more battery life out of this mod. If flavor is all you’re after though, then the 0.15Ω coil is the way to go.

In addition to using the Aegis Touch with the Geekvape Z tank, I also used it with a few other tanks in power mode and it performs just as you would expect, with a stable power output and a consistent draw. Even if you just purchase this mod by itself and don’t grab the whole kit, it’s a great mod for subohm tanks and rebuildable tanks.

One concern that I have about the Geekvape T200 is the battery discharge rates. I noticed that one battery would always be lower than the other by about 8-10%, according to the mod that is. That’s a bit concerning, but nothing to be too worried about if you use a dedicated battery charger to charge your batteries. Because if it’s not discharging the batteries evenly, I suspect that it won’t charge them quite evenly either.


Verdict

The Geekvape T200 kit has a number of good things going for it: a nice design, a beautiful screen, IP68 water and dust resistance, good drop resistance, and excellent flavor and performance, just to name a few. The Aegis Touch mod is gorgeous and very solid. It delivers exactly what you would expect from a flagship vape mod, and it doesn’t disappoint with its consistent power output and excellent reliability. It really is a great mod.

The large touch screen concerns me for durability, but in my testing it held up well and didn’t scratch or crack. I can’t say that it definitely won’t crack if you drop it just the right way, because I think that it probably will, but I haven’t experienced this to say so myself. But if durability is your main concern, I would probably go with the Geekvape L200 and not for this mod with the large and very-breakable-looking screen.

Would I choose to use this mod over all of the other mods that I own? Unfortunately, the answer is no and it has nothing to do with the performance and everything to do with the UI and touch screen. All of the extra steps involved just to change the wattage make me want to use a regular button-controlled mod instead, even if things like changing the vaping mode might be simpler to do. Sure, you might not be changing the wattage all of the time, but when you’re trying to make small adjustments to find just the right wattage for your tank or coil, you’ll wish that you had some physical adjustment buttons to press instead of going through 5 steps on this touch screen.

There’s no denying that the Geekvape T200 is cool and innovative, but it’s just not the device for me. Maybe you’ll like the advanced look and feel of the UI though.  If you think you will, then like I said, there’s nothing wrong with the design, build quality, or performance of the mod which would stop me from recommending it.
