The Geekvape Legend L200, or Aegis Legend 2, was sent to me for review from Geekvape. This came out in 2021, but it’s still an incredible device worth looking into. The Legend 2 is a newer version of the Aegis Legend and is smaller and lighter than the previous Legend. It has a bunch of upgrades, including a larger screen, more airflow, better performance, and the Z Sub-ohm tank (2021 Model).

Style & Design
The design is standard for any Aegis device but as with every iteration that Geekvape makes in this line, it’s just a little more upgraded and modernized. The Legend 2 has that sleek frame and leather-styled grip that makes it easy to distinguish that it’s an Aegis product. The brushed metal looks clean, and the whole thing looks nice.
The screen is a 1.08″ full-color screen. It’s a big screen that makes it really easy to see everything on it.
The screen shows the mode you’re in, the charge of the batteries, the resistance of your atomizer, your wattage or temperature setting, the voltage, and the number of hits you’ve taken.
You turn the device on and off by pressing the firing button five times fast.
You have your standard features:
Power – this is your typical wattage mode. You can adjust it from 5 to 200 watts. It goes in 0.5 increments if you press the button, and it’ll speed through if you hold it. It also round-robins to the next wattage when you reach the maximum or minimum.
Temperature Control – There are several temp-control modes. You have NI, TI, and SS. You can adjust it from 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit or switch to Celcius mode and adjust it from 100 to 315 degrees Celcius. You can also adjust the wattage that you want to start in.
TCR – If you want to adjust your TCR values for a specific type of coil you’re using, you can do that in TCR mode. And like the other TC modes, you can adjust your starting wattage too.
VPC – VPC mode lets you adjust your wattage for each second of your hit for up to five seconds.
Bypass – Bypass mode lets you run the device based on the build of your atomizer and the power of your batteries.
There are also some quick settings and the ability to change theme colors:
- Stealth Mode: Hold the firing button and the plus and minus buttons for two seconds to go into stealth mode.
- Theme: To change the theme colors, hold the plus and minus buttons simultaneously while you’re in the settings menu.
- Screen Brightness: While in standby mode, press and hold the firing button and either the plus or minus button.
The Legend 2 is now 15% smaller and 30% lighter than the original, which Geekvape says is because of the new smaller tech they use inside the device. The original Legend was pretty heavy, but that didn’t bother me since it was a heavy-duty dual-battery device. It was expected. But feeling this newer model in my hand and comparing it to the older model, it’s a big difference.
It feels great. It’s so much lighter, and it’s more comfortable to hold. It’s still a heavy-duty dual-battery device, though, so it’s still a little heavy, just to be clear.
Geekvape built a new feature called the A-Lock, which is a switch on the side of the devices that locks all functions. I like this idea. Usually, with most vape devices, you have to hit the firing button five times to turn a device off, and you’re good.
But there’s that slight chance it might activate again if you bump that button five times in your pocket and turn it on. And I’ve actually had that happen to me several times. I tend to throw my devices into my backpack when I’m going to work, and sometimes it gets wedged between something just right that it keeps hitting that button.
So with this new A-switch, you can pretty much prevent that from happening at all. And even if that’s not a concern for you, just being able to flip a switch to turn the device off and on is much faster than hitting the firing button five times and waiting for it to shut down or turn on. So yeah, it’s a super-simple idea, but I really like it.
More Durability: Waterproof, Shockproof, and Dustproof
As you would expect, the new Aegis Legend is waterproof and dustproof. But they’ve finally kicked up the protections a notch. While all previous versions of the Aegis line of devices were IP67 rated, this model is IP68. That means that it has the highest level of dust protection (the 6) and the highest level of water resistance (the 8). This translates to being completely dustproof and water resistant for more than 1 meter, or three feet.
Something to note about that water resistance rating is that the specific number of feet and how long a device can be submerged is different for every company. It’s at least more than three feet, but the company needs to specify what their own tests show, and I can’t find any specifics on that from Geekvape. But hey, we know it’s better than the previous Aegis devices.
Geekvape also says that the Legend 2 has a higher level of shock resistance. They don’t say exactly what type of rating it has, but the Aegis has always been durable, so if the shock resistance is better than before, it must be pretty good.
And on top of this, the Legend 2 can also handle more extreme temperatures. It can be exposed to as low as -20 Celsius or as high as 50 Celsius. In Fahrenheit, that’s -4 to 122 degrees.
I’d say that’s pretty good. Here in Colorado, we don’t get a ton of sub-zero days, but we reach anywhere from -5 to -15 degrees Fahrenheit plenty of times in the winter. So it might not work some days but will on most. I’ve had devices stop working on me at 10 or 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and those temps are really common in Colorado during the winter. So the Legend 2 would be perfect for most cold days. As for 122 degrees of heat, I just don’t see that happening to most people unless you’re in a car sitting in the sun.
Batteries & Charging
The Aegis Legend 2 takes two 18650 batteries. The battery door is held in place with a spring-loaded latch, and it just pops open when you flip the switch. It’s a solid door with an excellent water-tight seal.
If you want to charge the batteries in the device, you can. Just pop open that watertight seal at the top of the device and plug in a USB-C cable.
Geekvape Z Subohm 2021 Tank
Geekvape finally moved away from the Cerberus tank for their devices and launched the Z tank with the Legend 2.
The tank comes in several colors, which you could pick from if you buy it separately, but if you buy the Legend 2 kit, it’ll probably match the color of the device you get.
The tank comes in the colors of Silver, Red, Gunmetal, Blue, Rainbow, Black, and Gold.
The drip tip is a simple 810 Delrin tip. If you want to swap it out with something else, it’s removable, but it works fine for me.
To access the liquid fill port, you unscrew the top cap. The threads are nice; it comes off easily and screws on tight. The fill ports are big and easy to fill too. And this tank holds 5ml of liquid, which is pretty good.
When the top cap is off, you can pull off the airflow control ring, for example, if you want to clean it. I have a minor complaint about this airflow control ring, and that’s because the ring just pops off when you take the top cap off. Every time it just sorta falls off. I would have liked to see an o-ring on here to hold it in place.
The airflow control ring moves left and right and comes to a stop on each end. It moves smoothly, and I don’t have any problems with it. There are two airflow slots, one on each side, which allow you to get some big hits. And you can shut it down if you want a tighter lung draw.
This is a top airflow tank, so the airflow comes in from the top, runs down the outside of the chimney, through the coil, and back up to the mouthpiece. It works just fine and makes the tank practically leakproof.
There isn’t much to say about the parts in the middle other than that they come apart so that you can easily clean them. You have the chimney / fill-port section, the glass tank, and the chamber. You also get a spare 3.5 ml glass tube in the box.
The Geekvape Z tank uses a line of mesh coils called the Z series, which includes four different coils, all made with A1 Kanthal.
In the box:
This is a 0.2ohm coil that handles a range of 70-80 watts. At 70 watts, the flavor is excellent. At 80 watts, the flavor gets a little more concentrated, but I’m losing some of the little subtleties in the liquid. It probably depends on the liquid you’re using but for me 70 seems just about perfect for flavor. If you want more heat and more vapor, 80 watts is great.
This is a 0.25 dual coil coilhead that handles 45-57 watts. This is definitely more restricted than the 0.2 ohm coil so you’ll get a tighter draw. Personally I think the draw is a little too tight for a tank like this. The flavor is still pretty good. Also not as good as the 0.2 ohm coilhead but it’s good.
You get the ZO.2 and the ZO.25 dual coil with the tank. You’ll have to buy the others, a ZO.15 and ZO.4, separately. Even though I liked the 0.2-ohm coil better, that’s just my personal preference, and I like that they included two very different coil heads in the box to try out. It helps the user to figure out what type of vape they like.
To install the coils in the tank, all you do is unscrew the base and slide the coil in, then screw the base back on. The coil is press-fit and goes in or comes out really fast and easy. And the nice thing about this design is that you can swap out coils even when the tank is full of liquid.
The Aegis Legend 2 is a beautiful device. This thing was built for Instagram photos. It’s a great-looking device, and I love the design. But aside from that, it has all the features you need. It has IP68 water and dust resistance, shock resistance, charges using USB-C, and a handy lock switch on the side. I have no complaints about the device.
The Geekvape Z tank also looks great, especially with the Legend 2. It’s a big tank with plenty of airflow, it’s easy to take apart, the top cap is snug and twists off easily, and the coils are excellent. My only complaint with the Z tank is that the airflow control ring just sits on top of the device and falls off when you take the top cap off.
So overall, I think this is a great kit.
