    * When you highlight the power mode, click the fire button to highlight the resistance and then press the up button to lock it.
    * By clicking the fire button again will highlight the puff counter and by pressing the up button will clear the puff counter.
    * Pressing the fire button and either the up/down button will adjust the brightness of the screen.

    That covers the basics of this device.

    The next portion of this review is purely based on my personal observation of using this kit – your own experience may differ.

    The Pods :

    The Boost Plus pod is designed to hold a juice capacity of 5.5ml (the original Boost was 3.7ml).

    Filling the pods are such a breeze, as the filling port is at the top. So there is no need to remove the pod from the device to refill. Simply open the silicone plug and fill.

    The other nice thing is that the silicone plugs do not feel like cheap material when comparing it to other pod systems. The pod itself has a dark tint to it and it can be challenging to see your juice levels when not in a light environment.

    The pod is also sealed with ultrasonic technology, which means that the air tightness of the pod is reinforced and basically guarantees zero condensation.

    The pod can be removed/inserted into the device by using the little button on the side for safe release. Last the airflow can be adjusted on the front of the device, I prefer leaving the airflow wide open as I have found this tends to increase your coil life.

    The Coils :

    The Aegis Boost Plus comes out with two coils in the box.

    0.4 ohm is pre-installed in the pod and a 0.6 ohm.
    The coils (like most devices these days) are push fit and it makes it simple to replace coils.

    These babies are called the G.Coil Boost Formula. This basically means : bigger clouds, smooth flavour and a strong throat hit.

    Pro’s :

    * Longer battery life (external battery)
    * Exceptional coil life
    * Wattage adjustment are in .5 increments
    * Adjustable airflow
    * Top filling
    * Coil sits in the front of the pod
    * No leaking/condensation
    * Water resistant (not tested)
    * IP67 dustproof
    * Shockproof (tested)
    * 0.4 ohm coil has zero to minimal spit-back
    * Different drip tips
    * 5.5ml E-liquid capacity
    * Comfortable to hold

    Con’s :

    * Fire button is extremely sensitive
    * Opening/closing of battery bay (for the ladies with nails)

    Personal Recommendation :

    * It would be great if this pod could come out with a second pod with the 0.6 ohm pre-installed.


    Overall Thoughts :

    So this pod has exceeded my expectations of almost a perfect pod system. The device’s puff counter is currently on 8103 puffs and there are two things that I just have to rant and rave about.

    There is ZERO leakage whatsoever and no condensation. I have also not had the need to wipe the coils or the internal section of the device.

    Secondly, the coil life is astonishing. With the amount of puffs currently, there is not even a sign of the coil being close to replacing it. I have a strong suspicion that this has to do with the coil sitting in the front of the pod, so that when you vape the coil remains submerged under the e-liquid. The sweet spot for me to get the best flavour and clouds, would be around 30-33W depending on the flavour in the tank. Once this coil decides to give in, I will do a recap on this one and start testing the 0.6 ohm.

    I have also accidentally drop tested this device. Where a normal mod or device will splatter into sections all that happened with the Boost is that the pod detached itself and the body of the device has a little chip in.

    As this device does not use an internal battery, your usage time will differ to mine. The plus side is, if you have spare batteries that are fully charged you will never really have “down time” with this device.

    Being in the battery section, as a person who as long nails most of the time, it is hard to lift the ring to unscrew the battery cover. You also need to ensure when closing the cover again that the threads are caught when closing.

    These devices go for around R 790-850 and some might find it on the pricey side. I do agree on that, however with all the features, external battery, long lasting coils, etc. I feel it is worth it.

    The Final TVC Verdict : This is a device I would actually be proud of recommending to new/old vapers.

    Good morning beautiful people. I have been a bit quiet due to some crap so this week for #stoptober I am doing something a bit different.

    Instead of reviews I will be doing some personal recommendations. Full reviews will be done in future.

    First up.
    The Good Mango from Jis Foggin.

    A blend of the freshest mango, the perfect amount of ice and some hocus pocus.
