Vladdin Slide Kit Review

The Slide is a new all-in-one style device from vape manufacturer Vladdin. It’s a small boxy device that is similar in shape to the Joyetech Exceed Grip or Rincoe Tix. The Slide has a trick up its sleeve though. Instead of a removable door it’s got a resin panel on the front of the device that slides down to access the pod.

The Slide has a 2ml refillable pod that uses replaceable coils and it comes with a 0.8ohm mesh coil and a 1.2ohm regular round wire coil. It’s also got a 1000mAh battery, three wattage levels, and an adjustable airflow control ring.

Design & Build Quality

  • Vladdin Slide Kit Resin

The Slide measures 82mm tall, 45.8mm wide, and 20.2mm thick. It’s a nice little device. The size and shape are like a miniaturized box mod but it doesn’t weigh nearly as much. It’s a relatively light mod that doesn’t feel fragile or cheap; it’s got just enough heft to it to feel solid.

The outer shell is made out of aluminum while the interior is made out of plastic. The front side of the Slide has a real resin panel that reminds me a lot of the Voopoo Drag. I think the Drag has some of the nicest resin out there and the quality and design of this resin is very similar. It’s really pretty.

The front side of the Slide is where this device gets its name. It slides down towards the bottom of the mod to reveal the pod inside. This is a great design because it keeps the pod held in place and prevents it from falling out accidentally. No way this pod is coming out in your pocket! The door slides with ease and uses a track system that is very smooth. The door is also spring loaded and stays shut with no wiggle or rattling.

Vladdin Slide Sliding Door

There’s a single circular fire button on the side of the Slide. It rattles a bit which I don’t like but otherwise it works well. Below the fire button are four LEDS. The top three LEDS are for battery life. The last LED indicates your wattage setting.

The Slide has three wattage levels: red, green, and blue. Whereas every other pod vape I’ve seen has had the green LED for the high setting, the Slide uses blue. Weird. You can switch between the wattage levels by quickly pressing the fire button three times. The wattage levels are red (3.3V), green (3.5V) and blue (3.7V).


Pod & Coils

  • Vladdin Slide Pod

In the box you get one pod and two coils. The pod is slightly tinted but it’s not too dark so it’s still easy to see your ejuice level. The mouthpiece is built into the pod and it’s rather comfortable to vape on. It’s circular and similar to a 510 drip tip.

The pod holds 2ml of ejuice and fills through a port on the side. When you slide open the panel you’re supposed to be able to  fill the pod without having to remove it but I actually found this hard to do. Because the rubber plug is located so close to the body of the Slide it’s hard to remove when still in the device. I always had to slide the pod out just a little bit to remove the plug and fill the pod.

There’s an airflow control ring at the base of the pod. It unscrews from the pod and attaches to your coil. The whole airflow and coil assembly then screw back into the pod. There’s two wide slots for airflow and it’s fully adjustable to deliver anything from a restricted direct lung draw down to a restricted MTL.

The Slide comes with a 0.8ohm mesh coil and a 1.2ohm regular round wire coil. By adjusting the airflow you can use either coil for a DL draw or a MTL draw but I found that they both work best as MTL coils. The flavor is better and the draw just feels nicer.

I did have some wicking issues with both coils though. They don’t seem to fare very well with 80/20 VG/PG ejuices as they seem to struggle to wick fast enough. If you’re not chain-vaping or taking very long draws then they work fine but otherwise they can’t keep up. Even 70vg/30pg ejuices didn’t wick too well.

What I found is that both coils worked best with ejuices at or under 60VG. This limits the ejuices you can use with these coils if you’re chain vaping. On the other hand, the coils lasted for over a week each and were still going strong. What they lack in wicking capabilities they seem to make up for in coil life.

BatteryVladdin Slide Battery

The Vladdin Slide has a 1000mAh battery. There are three LED indicators that light up white to let you know your battery level. When the battery is fully depleted a red LED will flash 10 times.

All Three Lights: 70-100%

Two Lights: 35-70%

One Light: Less than 35%

Battery life has been good with this device. I liked using the green power level which is 3.5V and I was able to get around two days of usage out of the device. This was the equivalent of two refills. Two refills doesn’t seem like a lot but the device doesn’t use a lot of ejuice. I would say that I’m happy with the battery longevity of the Slide.


PerformanceVladdin Slide Performance

I’ve never tested another Vladdin device so I didn’t know what to expect. It’s a nice little vape though. Aside from the wicking issues, the coils work and vape great with a 60/40 vg/pg ejuice. With the Slide set to medium power and the airflow closed down to just a pin hole it’s a warm and tight draw. Really nice.

My favorite of the two coils was the 0.8ohm mesh. It’s a flavorful coil especially for being so small. The 1.0ohm coil gives slightly less flavor but it’s not at all bad. Both coils provide above average flavor and I enjoyed vaping with them. The only real issue is how poorly they wick high VG ejuices.

I first tested the coils with an 80/20 vg/pg, 6mg ejuice. They wicked fine at first but my chain vaping quickly dried them out. I started to get a semblance of a dry hit and the taste of burnt cotton so I swapped in some new coils and changed up the ejuice.

60vg/40pg worked a world better for regular e juices as well as nicotine salt eliquids. I found the throat hit from the 0.8ohm coil to be more satisfying than the 1.2ohm coil but I like a more aggressive hit. When using nic salts, your favorite coil will probably ride on how much of a throat hit you like. If you want it to be less pronounced you can use the 1.2ohm coil. More aggressive? Use the 0.8ohm mesh.


VerdictVladdin Slide Kit Review

The Vladdin Slide is a good AIO device but its coils are a weak point. The wicking issues with high VG ejuices severely limit what you can use but otherwise the coils have really good flavor. The battery life of the device is good, the design is really nice, and the tight MTL draw is very enjoyable. The three wattage outputs and adjustable airflow are also great to have.  If you vape ejuices with 60% VG or lower then this could be a great device.  But if you’re using 70/30 ejuices this isn’t the device for you.

Geekvape Aegis Solo Kit Review

The Geekvape Aegis Solo is the latest in a line of waterproof/shockproof Aegis mods.

The word Aegis doesn’t mean alot to me, and perhaps not you either, but apparently The Aegis was an Animal skin, or shield, bearing the head of Gorgon and was carried around by Athena and Zeus in Greek Mythology. And my own Personal Aegis Legend has been carried around by me for what feels like an Age. That’s because it’s the complete mod.beaten in woods aegis solo kit
Extremely hard wearing, simple to use, and fairly comfortable for a bigger mod. And the Aegis Solo kit appears to offer the same, but in Single 18650 form this time round.

How could Geekvape Finish off an excellent Aegis Line, including the original 26650 100W Aegis (which I own and love also) The Dual 18650 200w Aegis Legend, and the Mini Mod 80w Aegis Mini with its 2200mAh internal battery. Which also came with the Geekvape Cerberus tank, which is of course included in the Solo kit.

This Kit was sent to me for the purpose of review. All views and opinions are solely those of my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of others.

Design and Build Quality

I received the full Black version of the Geekvape Aegis Solo, along with a Black Cerberus Tank.

In The Hand

Due to its size and shape, the Aegis Solo fits super snug in the hand, with its thick yet rubbery finish around the majority of the device, plus the stitched leather, which might I add is curved beautifully leaving your index, middle and ring finger in the perfect position.

in the hand aegis solo kit

And did I mention this is a single 18650 version, meaning its super light too. All in all a very comfortable device to hold.

Aegis Solo Mod

Im pleased to see the Solo has kept exactly the same style, design and build quality as its predecessors. From top to bottom its extremely well put together. Starting at the top, its large enough to hold up to a 26mm Tank/RTA/RDA before you will notice any overhang and I’ve had not gaps between the Solo and different RDA’s thanks to its nicely springy 510 connector.

The ‘Diamond-like’ fire button protrudes perfectly but is a slightly uncomfortable feel on the thumb, I wish they had kept with the Aegis legend shape which is shaped a bit like a ski slope and extremely comfortable. But the fire button, and up/down are nice, clicky and responsive.

in hand screen ok beaten in woods aegis solo kit

At the base of the device is one of those ‘Screw to Unlock’ battery compartment covers, which is a little fiddly and very stiff! But it has to be to ensure the IP67 waterproof rating. Be sure to take your time screwing the cap back on though, as it does feel quite easy to cross-thread!

Cerberus Tank

The Cerberus Tank has been used by Geekvape for quite a while now, but it’s easy to see why. There’s nothing too fancy or smart about it but it’s a good all rounder for both performance and build quality. All the tolerances and threads are spot on, the 90 degree twist filling cap is good and creates a lovely tight seal.

I really like the low-profile drip it that came with the tank and it fits into the top nice and snug.
cerberus tank close up aegis solo-kit
The airflow control is super smooth and adjusts beautifully, mostly thanks to the knurling around the top cap, and the airflow ring. And it’s not a super noisy tank, theres a little whistle and a slight bit of that turbulence going on, but it’s not deafening and certainly won’t turn peoples heads.

How Does the Geekvape Aegis Solo Kit perform?

Basic operation

I feel like im repeating myself now, but with regards to the menu and functions, this kit operates in exactly the same way as the Aegis, the Legend and the Mini.

    • 5 clicks on, 5 clicks off
    • 3 clicks takes you through the menu options which include:
    • Power (Wattage)

power display aegis solo

    • Temperature Control x3 depending on coil type

    • VPC(Variable Power Curve) – So you can alter the output of the device when you fire the button which is ideal if you prefer a harder ramp up.

  • Bypass mode – Which basically means the mod will fire at the maximum it can, similar to a Mechanical Mod, but keeps those important safety features in place.

How To Fill The Cerberus Tank

  • Unscrew the top-cap by turning the top anti-clockwise by 90 degrees
  • Fill the tank using either filling slot
  • Re-fit the top-cap by pushing and turning clockwise 90 degrees

How To Change The Coils

  • Ensure the tank is empty
  • Holding the base of the tank with your thumb, unscrew the rest of the tank anti-clockwise
  • Unscrew the existing coil by turning anti-clockwise
  • Fit the new coil and screw in Clockwise until tight
  • Refit the rest of the tank (Including Glass of course)

Flavour and Clouds

Thankfully, Geekvape have a brain, and included 2 coils, both exactly the same. Which meant I could give the first on a proper thrashing, even changing up flavours after a few days to see how it copes. Along with firing it over the recommended 30-45w just to see how it behaves.

Then once onto the second coil, I was able to give it a decent durability test to see how long it will last.

In all honest, and unsurprisingly, Coil Number 1 only lasted a few days, but that’s purely down to the stress testing I put it through.
mesh coil aegis solo kit

Onto the second of the Mesh X2 0.3Ω coil, and i’m pleased to say it performed extremely well, I generally vaped at around 38w with the airflow halfway open and it delivered decent vapour production, and a flavour which was good, but not outstanding. But for a ‘Kit Tank’ it was good enough for me.

How to fit the battery

Simply unscrew the bottom battery cap using either your fingers, or the battery door assist tool which unfortunately was not included in my sample packaging. Ensure you fit the battery POSITIVE to the top, and then screw the cap back in place.

Note – The device will not turn on automatically so make sure you click 5 times… If the device doesn’t power on, you’ve got your battery in the wrong way.

Battery Life

Using the 0.3Ω mesh coils that come with the tank, at around 35-40w. you can rest assured a single, fully charged 18650 should last you all day and all evening. It’s only when you’re putting the wattage over the 50w mark that you might have to swap the batteries during the day.

If you’re looking to vape close to the 100w max output, you might just be pushing this mod further than it wants to go.

Even with the 100w available, I wouldn’t recommend it. Even at 75w with a dual coil Clapton build in, I found the mod got a little warm after around 10 hits.

Charging

You can charge the battery using the hidden micro USB port on the side of the mod, but as always I recommend using an external charger.
charging aegis solo kit

The Stress Test

I’ve quite recently put the Vandy Vape Jackaroo Kit through its paces, a mod which is one of the only other mods available to offer similar features to this, and the rest of the Aegis line – The only difference to the Aegis Mini being that it can hold a 21700 battery.

Of course the Cerberus Tank will only hold up to the gentlest of drops, thanks to the bubble glass. But with Ip67, ShockProof, Dustproof Aegis Solo mod, should be able to withstand quite a beating, along with a good soak right? Well there’s only one way to find out!

I took the Aegis Solo mod to the woods with my wife, and 3 young children. And the Kids (Mostly my wife) spent the majority of the nice quiet walk in the peaceful woodlands attempting to destroy the device – Of course the tank, and battery were removed before the fun began.
in hand in woods aegis solo kit

But after a good 30 minutes of being hit with a stick, thrown against trees, and even bouncing off the pavement at times, apart from the odd scuff to the rubber, the mod looks in almost perfect condition.

The screen didn’t crack, and is barely scratched, and it still performs exactly the same as before.
in vase of water aegis solo kit

I then put the mod the same Vase the Jackaroo kit had to endure for a good 30 minutes.

And again, not a drip of water has got into the battery compartment, or anywhere else for that matter.battery compartment after submerging aegis solo kit

Pros

Mod

  • Extremely Durable and well built
  • Good battery life for a single 18650
  • Very comfortable to hold
  • Screen is clear even in sunlight

Tank

  • Mesh Coils last well
  • Well put together
  • Comfortable Low-Profile Drip-Tip

Cons

Mod

  • 100w Max is pushing it a little for a single 18650
  • The fire button is a little uncomfortable

Tank

  • Flavour could be better
  • A little noisy

Final Review Verdict

Quite simply, Unless you get out your hammer or a drill – You won’t be able to destroy the Geekvape Aegis Solo. Accidental drops will barely put a scratch on this thing.

The tank is another story but the star of the show when buying any of the Aegis Kits is not the tank, but the mod itself.
