How To Use GeekVape AP2 Kit: Beginner Tips & TricksPin

After spending a few weeks getting to know the Aegis Pod 2, I’ve got a solid grasp of what this device brings to the table. Check this out now!


The Aegis Legend, Aegis Solo, Aegis Squonk, and Aegis Boost, all bearing the IP67 rating, have etched their names as some of the most robust vaping devices available. What’s even more impressive is that they don’t just excel in sturdiness; they also boast exceptional performance. 

Now, let’s shift our focus to recent release, the GeekVape AP2. This newcomer, another product proudly featuring the IP67 rating, represents a departure from the norm. While the Aegis Boost may be a tad bulkier and geared toward a more advanced audience, the Aegis Pod takes a simpler, more compact route.

For me, this is particularly appealing for those with an active lifestyle. The GeekVape AP2 is way more pocket-friendly, versatile and durable. I’m curious to see if it’s as good in action as it sounds. So, let’s dive in and see how it stacks up!

Design and Build Quality

I got my hands on the stunning Rainbow version, and it’s got this awesome shiny finish with a sleek Black faux leather panel that ties everything together really nicely. The battery has a decent 900mAh capacity, which should easily last me a whole day of vaping with the power this kit packs.

Now, when it’s time to charge it up, the Type-C port is located at the bottom of the mod. I personally found this a bit inconvenient since it means I have to choose between charging it with the pod on its side and risking a bit of leakage or taking the pod off altogether.

This kit offers two ways to vape: you can either press the button and take a draw or simply use the draw-only function. 

Plus, it’s got three different power settings, and switching between them is a piece of cake. Just give the power button three quick taps and cycle through to pick your preferred color:

  • Low – White light
  • Medium – Blue light
  • High – Green light

Airflow and Pod Coils

Airflow

Switching between mouth-to-lung (MTL) and restricted direct-to-lung (RDTL) is a piece of cake. All you need to do is swap the position of the pod. Take the pod off, flip it 180 degrees, and slide it right back into place.

It’s incredibly straightforward and adds to the kit’s charm. You’ve got two different vaping styles at your fingertips. If you’re new to vaping, this means you can give both styles a try without any hassles!

They’re clear enough to check your e-liquid levels, although you might need to pop the pod out for a crystal-clear view. These pods sit snugly at the top of the kit, held securely in place by some robust magnets.

Compatible coils

0.6Ω Coil

Alright, so the 0.6ohm coil is all about flavor – not the absolute best you’ll get from a pod kit, but it’s certainly a solid start. It’s like the opening act of a great vaping show. However, in my experience, the different flavors in your e-liquid might mix together a bit, like a cocktail of tastes.

As for how long your e-juice lasts, well, a tank will keep you going for roughly half a day if you’re vaping moderately. Remember, there’s a 2ml cap on the pod due to those TPD rules. Depending on your wattage preference, you can switch between:

  • White = 15W
  • Blue = 16W
  • Green = 17W

0.8Ω Coil

When you switch to the restricted direct-to-lung setup, you get a slightly smoother draw, but it doesn’t drastically change the flavor for me, if I had to rate it on a tightness scale from When you switch to the restricted direct-to-lung setup, you get a slightly smoother draw, but it doesn’t drastically change the flavor for me. The wattage here is automatically adjusted based on your color choice:

  • White = 12W
  • Blue = 13W
  • Green = 14W

In terms of flavor, it’s a decent vape, but it won’t make your taste buds do the tango. Just like with the 0.6ohm coil, I didn’t notice much of a difference between the wattage levels. I mostly hang out in the blue setting. Oh, and it seems this coil prefers a 50/50 e-juice over the thicker 70/30 blends.

Installing and Replacing Coils

Properly maintaining your AP2 vape kit is essential to ensure longevity and a top-notch vaping experience. Here’s a detailed guide on how to fill the AP2 pod and change the coil:

Filling the AP2 Pod

  • Before your first fill, it’s crucial to exercise patience. Allow the kit to sit for a minimum of 10 minutes after filling. Rushing this step could inadvertently burn out the coil. However, if this happens, don’t fret; coil replacement is a simple solution.
  • Begin by removing the pod from your AP2 device. This can be achieved by gently detaching it.
  • Locate the bung, a small cover or plug on the side of the pod. This is where the magic happens.
  • Take your e-liquid bottle, positioning the nozzle at the hole under the bung.
  • Slowly and carefully, fill the pod. Make sure not to overfill, as this can lead to leaks and other issues.
  • Once the pod is filled to your preferred level, replace the bung securely to seal the e-liquid inside.
  • Finally, reinsert the pod back into your AP2 kit, ensuring it clicks into place securely.

Changing the Coil

  • First, remove the pod from your AP2 device. This action is necessary to access the coil within. To remove the coil, either use the provided coil tool or, if you prefer, your fingers. Carefully grip the coil at the bottom of the pod and pull it out. 
  • Before inserting the new coil, you have the option to clean the pod. This step isn’t mandatory, but it’s recommended for the best experience. Rinse it with warm water and then ensure it’s thoroughly dried.
  • Add a few drops of e-liquid onto the wicking holes of the new coil. Priming allows the coil to absorb e-liquid and function properly.
  • Insert the newly primed coil into the pod. It should slide in smoothly. Ensure it’s securely in place.
  • After inserting the new coil, exercise patience once again. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This waiting period ensures the wicking material in the coil becomes fully saturated with e-liquid, preventing dry hits and extending the coil’s life.

Guide to light indicators

Now, when it comes to charging up this bad boy, the kit’s got you covered with a charging cable right in the box. And, trust me, it’s always best to roll with the cable they provide.

For your charging convenience, you’ll find the charging port chilling at the bottom of the kit. Just plug in, and you’re off to the races!

They’re tucked away in that tiny black space below the button. Remembering all the light codes might be a bit of a brain workout, but no worries, GeekVape AP2 got your back with a user guide.

As you take a drag, the light will give you the lowdown:

  • Red = battery’s feeling weak, less than 30%
  • Blue = battery’s in the 30% to 70% sweet spot
  • Green = battery’s living its best life, more than 70%
  • Flashing red five times = low battery alert
  • Flashing red three times = no pod detected – oops!
  • Flashing red eight times = atomizer short – time to check that out
  • If it glows red constantly for 10 seconds = things are heating up a bit too much

Battery Maintenance

  • Always use the provided charging cable and recommended charger. Using a different cable or charger might deliver the wrong voltage, potentially harming the battery.
  • Avoid charging overnight or for extended periods. Once the battery is fully charged, unplug it. Modern devices often have built-in overcharge protection, but it’s a good habit to unplug when done.
  • Charge your vape when the battery level drops to around 20-30%. Lithium-ion batteries do not require a complete discharge before charging, so topping up regularly is fine.
  • Extreme temperatures can harm your battery. Avoid charging your device in extremely hot or cold environments.
  • Using the correct wattage for your coils can impact battery life. Higher wattages consume power more rapidly.
  • Ensure good electrical connections by cleaning your battery’s contacts and terminals. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe them clean.
  • Check your battery for any visible damage or swelling. If you notice any issues, replace the battery immediately.
  • Be cautious when using mods with removable batteries. Always use high-quality, undamaged batteries and store them safely in cases when not in use.
  • When not in use, turn off your vape device. Some devices may continue to drain the battery, even in standby mode.

The Aegis Pod is about as straightforward as it gets. If you’re new to vaping, this is a perfect choice. Unlike the Aegis Boost, which had airflow control and wattage adjustment, the GeekVape AP2 keeps things basic.

Some might see this as a downside if you’re an experienced vaper, but I believe new vapers will love the fact that this device just works without any settings to tinker with.

Now, onto the important stuff – flavor. I found that the GeekVape AP2 delivers some seriously good taste. Whether I was puffing on regular nicotine, the flavors really popped. It’s one of those devices that brings out the best in your e-juices, making every hit enjoyable. So, if you’re all about savoring your favorite flavors, this device won’t disappoint.
