Review of Geekvape Nova Kit
Price : $75.75 $88.99
At the very beginning, most of the mods were designed into a square box. That’s why mods are called box mods. At present, many manufacturers applies ergonomics to product shape when designing the appearance of a mod. An increasing number of vaping devices with great hand feel have swarmed into the market, but box-shaped mods never withdraw from the stage of history. Many users feel an emotional connection with those square box-shaped mods.
Here I will share the Geekvape Nova Kit with you guys. The Nova mod of this kit adopts such vintage box style. It gives up the commonly-used zinc alloy, but adopts aluminium alloy and resin plates, which makes this mod weighs surprisingly only 120g without batteries.
Eight colors are officially released for option. Packing list is showed in the picture above. Specifications as follows:
Mod size: 88mm* 52mm* 25mm
Mod material: Aluminium alloy & Resin plate
Mod weight: 120g
Max output: 200W
Modes: VW/TC (Ni/Ti/SS/TCR)/Curve/Bypass
Batteries: 18650 * 2
Lowest resistance: 0.05 (VW mode)
Since 2018, many manufacturers have given up the solution of zinc alloy or stainless steel with electroplating or stoving varnish, and started to adopt the solution of aluminium alloy with anode oxidation. Such alteration can bring users a device with more durable surface and much lighter weight. What’s more, by adopting skin-like resin surface, this Nova Box Mod brings you a super comfortable hand feel.
At the shoulder of magnetic battery compartment cover, there is a gap for easily opening it. As showed in the picture above, you can see the mark “AS200 CHIP”. AS chip is a stable and reliable core technology and has been utilized onto several mods of Geekvape.
The battery compartment is in a regular shape, but you still can see the small groove clearly for the convenience of disassembling the batteries, proving that Geekvape has made efforts on the details of Nova Box Mod.
The screen of Nova Box mod displays data clearly and intuitively, including the separate battery life, resistance, voltage, puff times and so on. AS200 chip is very simple for operation. By pressing the fire button five times consecutively, you can turn on/off the device. By pressing it three times consecutively, you can enter into the interface for switching mode. Then press the fire button singly to switch the modes including VW, TC, Curve and Bypass. You can refer to the user manual for more details.
The matched Cerberus Tank adopts Mesh X1 coil. In use, I find this tank delivers full taste and its resistance is very accurate. Of course, since Nova Box Mod is a great device, it can also match with other low-resistance tank or RBA atomizers other than Cerberus Tank.
Cerberus Tank features a bottom airflow system. With the bulb tank, its overall diameter increases to 27mm. The big-sized 810 drip tip and mesh coil together bring users smooth drawing resistance and full taste.
The top cap and the atomizer is not connected by regular thread, but a buckle with a silicone ring to bear the pressure. When you open it, you need to squeeze this part a little bit and then spin to open it.
The atomizer can be disassembled to the parts as showed in the above picture. Its simple structure is very convenient for maintenance. Since the drip tip features a hook structure inside, there is no way for you to suck in the condensation liquid into mouth. And because the mesh coil consumes liquid much faster than regular coil, it’s more suitable to use the 5.5ml big-capacity glass tube.
The resistance of Mesh X1 is 0.2ohm. Its rated output range is from 30 to 90w, and the best output range is from 60 to 80w. Some vapers might have the question that how to use the lowest and highest wattage. Take this tank as an example. When the airflow hole is gradually closed to a small size, you will need to lower the wattage. When you do DTL vaping, you will need to increase the wattage and the airflow. In such way, you can keep a balance between the airflow and heat and enjoy a normal good experience.
Since there is airflow barrier inside of the bottom airflow hole, the airflow adjustment can match the output wattage accurately. You will not feel hollow or blocked when you vape. Though the mesh coil features large heating coil, it can well support it.
When the wattage is at 35W, if you do slow vaping with the original mesh coil, it can bring nice flavor. As the wattage and the airflow increase, you can do DTL (direct-to-lung) vape to experience the fast-heating feature of mesh coil. The climax of Cerberus Tank’s explosive power and nice taste is at 50-55w wattage with 50% airflow. When the wattage exceeds 65w and the airflow hole is completely open, the e-liquid flavor will be weakened and vapor will become larger.
Since there are numerous vaping devices in the market, to catch the eye and capture the heart of vapers, it’s vital for a device to have various highlights and innovations. As for Geekvape Nova Kit, one of the highlights of the mod is its 120g feather-like weight.
Geekvape products are always known for its practical. The performance of its chip and the nice taste that its tank delivers also adds lots of marks to it. If you want to buy a high-wattage vaping device with good performance, light weight and vintage appearance, Geekvape Nova Kit is a wonderful choice.
