GeekVape has become known for making really unique box mods that fit a specific niche. From the rather indestructible Aegis and now to this, the Blade 235W box mod. It certainly has an allure to its looks, let’s see if it stands up to the full test and performs well too.
Once again, GeekVape has done a great job in catching our eye with one of their products. This time with the Blade, we’re instantly drawn in by the paint job of the vape mod. There are several options with this model, but it’s the Starry Night version that gets our attention. It is like you are looking into a painting, with the ability to vape with the unit coming in secondary. This swirl of colours and shapes looks so different than any other paint job we’ve seen on a box mod, that we’re a little bit in awe.
That awe was furthered when we realized the pain job is in fact a singular creation. That is to say, no two Blades are the same. Wow! Imagine having a painting wrapped around your box mod and realizing that it truly a one of a kind creation. We loved this unique design and it covered almost the entire vape mod. There is a an area on the front that houses what you need – a screen, a fire button, +/- buttons and a USB port. These are there to be functional, it’s everything around this box mod that is worth paying attention to.
In terms of build, the GeekVape Blade at first felt a little too light for a box mod its size. It’s not mammoth, but it also isn’t small by any means, yet they were able to keep the weight very low. Part of the reason is that they used an aircraft grade polymer that is both very strong and also lightweight. The buttons themselves seemed perfectly fine, clicking with ease and not showing any real issues. They didn’t take away from the look or feel of this product, which is the only thing they really needed to do.
We’ve seen more than a few vape mods look stunning, and then fail when it comes to performance. Not so with the GeekVape Blade 235W. It may look artsy on the outside, but on the inside lies a vapour engine just screaming to be put to work. That we did, trying it out with both the excellent GeekVape Aero tank as well as some others. This is a box mod that has no problem shooting all the way through its power range and get up there right near the top. Even better, it did so without any noticeable overheating. There’s that PPS polymer at work, keeping it cool to the touch.
The Blade performed well in all the included modes and, in combination with some great tanks, was able to produce rather impressive results. The flavours always seemed to taste great, and the vapour was overflowing from our exhales. Suffice to say, this box mod hit on everything needed and deftly performed through many tank changes.
GeekVape doesn’t skimp on its feature set either, as we pleasantly found out. There’s a full cadre of option, starting with variable wattage and going on to Temperature Control for Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel. It also has a bypass mode as a VPC mode (Variable Power Mode) for those looking to set it up for advanced usage.
This is a dual battery box mod that is able to take 21700 or 20700 batteries. It can also take the more traditional 18650 batteries, using the included adapter. The 21700 batteries are large and fit rather snug into the battery slot, but they fit and they work, providing you more battery life and extending your usage between charges.
Here’s a list of the important features:
- 5 to 235W Power Output
VPC Output Modes
- Resistance Range: 0.05-3 ohm
- Temperature Range: 100-315C/200-600F
- Uses Two 21700, 20700, or 18650 (with adapter) Batteries
- 1” OLED Screen
- 510 Threading
- Unique Colour Patterns
- Size Specs: Depth 52mm/ Width 38mm/ Height 93mm
Ease of Use:
Keeping it rather simply, GeekVape went with the more traditional menu layout so users could find what they needed quickly. Just 5 clicks of the fire button will turn the vape mod on or off, and it takes 3 clicks to access the mode system. From there, use your +/- buttons to find the setting you want. You can also easily adjust the brightness on the OLED screen, which seems to be about an inch in size and is big enough to make it easy to read.
The Blade is 510 threaded and swapping out tanks was a breeze. There is the right amount of give when screwing in a tank, and especially with the GeekVape Aero, it seemed to work together perfectly.
This work of art comes in at £49.99 for the lowest price among respected vendors. Some might deem it a little high for just a box mod without a tank, but the truth is when you can legitimately get up over 200 watts every time, this becomes a value. Certainly tanks this powerful aren’t going for much less.
The GeekVape Blade 235W box mod is a wonder to behold. It’s absolutely stunning and classy, not to mention fun to look at, plus it performs like a champ. If we had to pick a downside, it’s that it is quite large. It isn’t heavy, though, so that takes some of the burden off a vape mod of this size. Choosing the Blade means you know you’re going to get the vaping experience you want, and you’ll have a piece of art to look at in between puffs. We definitely give this product a very warm recommendation, as it proved to be more than skin deep. If you want a high performing box mod and appreciate the looks, then this is the product for you. Take it home and start enjoying it right away.
