Geekvape released a new version of one of their most popular pod devices to date, the Aegis Boost. This new Aegis Boost Luxury Edition addresses a minor issue which plagued the original Aegis Boost and can basically be considered version 2 or maybe more accurately 1.1. The changes are quite minimal so this will be less of a review and more of a highlight to point out some of the new changes and how they affect the Aegis Boost LE.

Packaging and contents:
The kit comes packed in a mostly black box with an image of the new kit on the front and plenty of details on the back. In the kit you get the new Aegis Boost LE device loaded with a new Aegis Boost LE pod with a 0.4ohm GV Boost coil installed, a GV Boost 0.6ohm coil, an alternate drip tip, a coil removal tool, a little mini Boost figure, a key ring, a lanyard, a micro USB cable as well as some promotional material and a warranty card. Geekvape always includes a nice compliment of stuff but the little mini Boost mod with changeable highlight is a cute little touch.
The Aegis Boost LE mod:
The mod really hasn’t changed at all from the original in regards to specs and performance and in reality the only difference I could spot on the Boost LE was the logo now includes LE after it. It still sports the 40w max output with only a basic wattage mode for features like it used to. It also has the same 1500mAh internal battery with 1.5A quick charge but unfortunately it still uses micro USB as opposed to the newer USB Type-C everyone seems to prefer. Of course it still has the IP67 shock, dust and waterproof rating that makes the Aegis line famous so what exactly does the LE edition offer over the original? As far as I could tell it’s the pod and the little figurine they include in the kit.
The Aegis Boost LE pod:
The pod that comes with the LE looks more like the pod that was released with the Aegis Boost Plus. With the original Aegis Boost the only real complaint I had with it was the pod leaked after using it for a while. I also wasn’t a fan of the proprietary drip tips which unfortunately made it through to the LE version. The pods that came with the Boost Plus fixed the leaking issue with better seals and it looks like the Aegis Boost LE followed suit by essentially fixing the same issue with the original Boost. The new pod still uses the same form factor as the original so all of the coils and accessories from the original will work with the LE including the RDTA(sold separately). It still holds 3.7ml of liquid with a convenient silicone plug on the top for top filling and it still uses the same plug and play coils as the original. Heck it even comes with the same two mesh coils as the original now it just doesn’t leak.
One of the handier features of the Aegis Boost LE pods is the thumb dial airflow control that you can use to adjust the draw. It makes tuning in to your preferred airflow a breeze by simply turning a little dial. It can do a pretty decent mouth to lung but with the included mesh coils I really prefer using this thing for direct lung and if you use either of them with nic salts I’d caution the strength you choose as it gives quite a kick being they are both mesh based. Included in the kit are the same two coils one 0.4ohm and one 0.6ohm G Boost mesh coils. Flavour and performance is just as on point as the original since the only thing that really changed was the outer design of the pod.
I was already a fan of the Aegis Boost and the Aegis Boost LE just fixes the biggest issue I had with the original, no more leaking. I kind of feel they could have done a bit more with this to truly make it an LE version like add USB Type-C and maybe replace the proprietary drip tips but considering how much I enjoyed the original I really have almost nothing to complain about with the LE. If you’re looking for an on the go pod mod but want the durability of a classic Aegis device the Boost LE easily gets the nod from me!!
