Geekvape Blade 235 Watt TC Mod Kit Review
This is new and we got the inside goods. Our Geekvape Blade review is an overall overview of something different. Right off the bat this new 235 watt TC mod has a lot going for it. This puppy is light, colorful, and diverse. Not only diverse in terms of functionality, but diverse in battery options. You can use two 18650s, two 20700s, or two big, juicy 21700 batteries! It also comes with the Aero sub ohm vape tank. The whole kit sells for about $70. Excellent!
The Geekvape Blade 235 watt TC vape mod works with all of these batteries:
Geekvape is rapidly becoming one of the hottest e-cigarette companies. In the last year especially. With the success of the Blitzen and the Aegis, Geekvape has developed a reputation for top-quality tanks and devices. The Blade vape kit just might be their best work yet. I have to say we love the option of being able to use two 21700 batteries. The extra battery capacity makes a difference. We will tell you why later in the review.
We will be going over all of the details in this Geekvape Blade 235 watt TC mod review. Plus an overview of the Aero vape tank. The Aero is a 4.0 ml capacity sub ohm tank with a top fill design. It is a basic sub ohm tank but very well made.
A note on e-juice: While you are here, take a second to check out Freeman, an excellent juice for the Geekvape Blade kit.
The first impression of the GeekVape Blade review is the colorful, attractive design. There are two color patterns, Starry Night and Poppy. Starry Night indeed uses many of the colors visible in Van Gogh’s famous painting. Poppy is a mesmerizing swirl of purples, blues, and pink. The colors and appearance are truly eye catching. If the Geekvape Blade mod were a person, it would be one of those people that everyone notices when they walk into a room. It’s a head turner.
Comes in two color patterns:
- Starry Night - blend of blues, greens, yellows, and orange
- Poppy - swirling patterns with purples, blues, and pinks
The next thing you will notice is the shape. The Blade mod is not a square box mod style like most dual 18650 vape mods. Instead, it is more rounded for comfort. In fact, it looks like a triple 18650. I love the design and how Geekvape made use of space with diversity and comfort in mind. The height and width is designed to accommodate the larger 201700 batteries. But rather than increasing the dimensions of a box shape to hold the firmware board, they expanded into an ovular shape with the end result of a palm friendly, rounded body.
Finally, you cannot help but notice the huge, highlighted fire button. The way the Geekvape Blade fits in your hand and the button location are perfect for thumb firing. It feels fantastic. The thumb fire feels like a natural extension of your hand. It looks great and feels great. Kind of like me! Anyway, let’s carry on, shall we?
Geekvape Blade 235 Watt TC Vape Mod Review
Time for some nuts and bolts of the Geekvape Blade 235 watt TC mod review. This new mod is made of ultra-light, aircraft grade material. We mentioned that it is lightweight but get a load of this. Without batteries, it weighs only 112 grams. When you pick it up, you definitely notice how light it is. That is a shade under 4 ounces. With two 18650 batteries aboard, the Blade weighs 219 grams or 7.7 ounces. With two 20700 batteries aboard it weighs in at 259 grams or 9.1 ounces.
- Weighs only 112 grams
The Geekvape Blade vape mod is 93 mm tall or 3.7 inches. That makes it only slightly taller than a typical dual 18650 mod. The height is all battery compartment. As I mentioned, instead of sticking the board at the top, GeekVape rounded out the body to make space. At the widest point, the girth of the Blade tops out at 52 mm or right about 2 inches.
- Rounded form, comfortable to hold
- The Geekvape Blade feels super light but is very durable
The display screen is awesome. Geekvape actually created a white background for the wattage and temperature reading. You have got to love that because you will be able to clearly see the setting even in sunlight. A huge edge over most OLED mod screens. Thumbs way up for that, Geekvape. Well played. Especially for people like me who are outside most of the day. Finally, once again, I love the size and location of the fire button. Perfect for effortless vaping.
- Like any mod, if your vape tank is leaking try to keep the excess excess juice from the screen.
UPDATE: After using the Geekvape Blade for several month now, I can say that the durability of this lightweight material is excellent. I am still loving the fire button, feel and performance.
Geekvape Blade Review Of Vaping Functions
So far the Geekvape Blade review has been very positive. We haven’t even talked about vaping yet! Okay, let’s do that. The Blade is a 235 watt mod with five vaping functions:
- Variable wattage
- Temperature control
Digging into these vaping functions a bit more, the variable wattage range is from 5 watts up to 235 watts. In the lower range, you can increase in 0.1 watt increments. In higher ranges it is 1 watt increments. Another thing I love here is how fast you can go from 5 watts to 235 watts. The chip is fast.
Geekvape chipsets have proven to be very accurate and stable in temperature control. You can use the regular temp control mode for your pre-built temp control coils or you can use TCR mode for exotic wires or for finite control.
Bypass mode means that you forego technology and deliver raw power to your atomizer. Unless you are an experienced vaper, we do not recommend using the Bypass mode. Take advantage of the regulated technology. The vaping is excellent.
Geek Vape Blade VPC Function
Finally, we have VPC vape mode. What is VPC? Variable power curve is the answer. A variable power curve is actually very cool. I know this is a Geekvape Blade review but for those who don’t know about this, I will quickly go over VPC vaping. A power curve is a vaping option where you program each second of atomizer firing. For example, you can set the first second to fire at 80 watts, the second second to fire at 70 watts, the third second to fire at 45 watts, and so on. You can program up to 10 seconds of atomizer firing.
The benefit of the VPC vaping is the you can fine tune each hit on your vape. I like a hard initial hit that mellows out after a couple of seconds. I like the first two seconds to be at high wattage then drop down to a low wattage. Other vapers like a hit that starts mellow and with increasing intensity. You can vape any way you like.
VPC is a feature that is a big plus for the Geekvape Blade review. Most of us spend most of our time vaping in variable wattage mode and that’s great. But having options only enhances the experience and enjoyment of vaping. Especially when vaping Freeman Vape Juice, of course! But everyone knows that:)
GeekVape Blade 235 Watt TC Mod Specs
I think we have covered most of the tech specs already in the Geekvape Blade 235 watt TC mod review. But just in case you missed anything we will list them all here in one place. Here you go:
- Geekvape Blade size is 93mm x 52mm x 38mm
- Construction Material is aircraft-grade PPS
- PPS is light, string, and resists heat
- Atomizer Resistance Range is 0.05ohms up to 3.0ohms
- Power Range is 5W to 235W
- Vaping Modes: Power/TC/TCR/VPC/BYPASS
- Battery: Dual 18650(with adapter) or 20700/21700 Batteries (Not included)
- Stainless Steel 510
Geekvape Blade Vape Mod Battery Options
Throughout the Geekvape Blade review so far, we have been talking about the battery options. The large battery compartment of the Blade mod will allow for three different battery choices. To vape with 18650 batteries, you insert an adapter. The adapter is very easy to insert in place and it works like a charm. You will get the 18650 battery adapter included in the Geekvape Blade mod kit.
The 20700 batteries are the same diameter as 18650s but are longer. 20700 batteries offer about 25% more capacity than a standard 18650. That extra capacity can make a big difference. It may even mean that two fully charged 20700 batteries get you through a full day at work, which eliminates any need to lug around a second pair of batteries with you.
Average vape battery capacities:
- 18650 - 2200 mAh
- 20700 - 3000 mAh
- 21700 - 4000 mAh
Advantage of Bigger Vape Batteries
Most vapers already have and are happy with their 18650 batteries. That’s great. The diversity of the Blade 235 watt mod is a large part of its charm. However, if you vape at high wattages or spend a lot of time away from your home base, then you know how valuable extra battery capacity can be.
The extra capacity is the advantage of having the option of using 20700 or 21700 e-cig batteries. Imagine having almost double the capacity of an 18650. I spend a good deal of my day away from home driving all over the place. The extra battery capacity is amazing. Especially since I like to vape at 80 plus watts most of the time. Sometimes I even go up to 200 when I want to make some other worldly clouds. With extra battery capacity, you don’t have to carry around extra batteries.
Extra Battery Capacity means:
- Vaping at higher wattages longer
- Not having to carry extra batteries
- Perfect for people on the go
Aero Vape Tank Review
The Geekvape Blade 235 watt mod review is actually a vape kit review. The Blade 235 watt TC mod kit comes with the Aero sub ohm tank. So let’s do an Aero vape tank review real quick.
The Aero tank is a 25mm tank with a 4 ml capacity. There is a TPC compliant 2ml version for European customers. The Aero is made from stainless steel with a Pyrex glass tank. The heat resistant top cap and drip tip can be easily removed to access the top-fill port. It is very easy to refill the tank with your favorite e-juice. Of course, your favorite e-juice is Freeman Vape Juice because you have very good taste!
There is not a lot to say about the Aero tank to be honest. It is an excellent, no frills, sub ohm vape tank. With smooth connections, it is easy to change vape juice without any mess of leaks. The Aero comes with two coil options, a 0.4 ohm coil and a 0.15 ohm coil. This is a new product so there is a chance more coil options could be available in the future.
UPDATE: The two coil types for the Aero tank are the IM1 (0.4 ohm) and IM4 (0.15 ohm). After using the Aero tank for a few months, I can say that the longevity of the IM1 coil surpasses that of the IM4 coil.
Aero Tank Specs:
- Size: 25mm diameter by 45mm in height
- Capacity: 4.0ml or a 2.0 ml TPD version
- Coil: IM1 0.4ohm Coil(40-60W), IM4 0.15ohm Coil(60-80W)

Vaping and Using The Geekvape Blade 235 Watt TC Mod Kit With Aero Tank
Before we sign off from the Geekvape Blade 235 watt mod kit review, we best talk about the user experience. The build quality is terrific. This is the first mod made of PPS aircraft material that I have handled. We have been testing for a week and there is every reason to believe in the durability of the Blade. The battery cover sets in place perfectly and holds firm. The 18650 adapter seamlessly slides in and out. Everything is precise and durable.
Another note, the 510 location on this mod is just right. You can use a huge range of vape tanks with no overhang.
The menu system is easy to access and sort through. The screen is easy to read. My favorite part of using this mod during the course of the Geekvape Blade review was the feel. I enjoyed the feel and especially the big beautiful fire button.
The Aero tank is an excellent, precision machined and fitted vape tank. I mean it is nothing spectacular, it’s just a solid sub ohm vape tank. It makes very good vapor and is a solid flavor tank as well.

UPDATE: After several months of extensively using the Blade mod kit, we can update with you with a note about the durability. The battery door has not loosened at all. That is excellent. The mod is working beautifully. It is very durable!
Freeman now offers the Geekvape Blade kit. We decided to carry this mod because we think it is terrific. But we are not a big company with big money behind us so our price may be higher than you find on corporate vape sites. We can't buy in the bulk numbers the corporate vape brands do. We do sell it for the lowest price that we can. And we do sell only authentic products that we actually like!
That will about do it for the Geekvape Blade review! You will be able to buy the Blade mod kit almost anywhere but make sure you get it from a reputable source. Don’t buy a cheap clone! We don’t sell mods here, all we do is vape juice. And we do it to the highest level. That leaves us with just one last thing.
Best Vape Juice For The Geekvape Blade 235 Watt Mod Kit
Is there any doubt? The best juice for the Geekvape Blade and Aero kit is Freeman Vape Juice! That goes for any mod and tank combo, by the way. No doubt you knew we would say that. Are we biased? Yes. But we are also confident that we are right! Here’s why.
Freeman uses only the best USA sourced ingredients and our vape juice flavors are a knockout. We make the best vape juice at the lowest price. Our 120 ml e-liquid sell for under $20. You get a whole lot for a little.
The 80/20 blend we use will enhance the vapor production while retaining a vibrant flavor profile. Don’t leave until you check out our selection.
Freeman, for the individualist.
