How to Use the Geek Vape Aegis Solo
If you’ve ever used another vape mod, you already have a basic idea of how to use the Geek Vape Aegis Solo – but that doesn’t mean this device is exactly the same as other mods. This is your quick-start Geek Vape Aegis Solo instruction manual.
How to Install a Battery and Charge the Geek Vape Aegis Solo
Part of why the Geek Vape Aegis solo does such a good job of withstanding shocks is because it has a threaded battery compartment that keeps water out and won’t pop open accidentally. To open the battery compartment, lift the handle of the compartment lid and use it for leverage as you turn the lid counterclockwise. Insert the battery with the positive pole facing the top of the device. Replace the lid carefully, being certain not to cross the threads.
How to Fill the Geek Vape Cerberus Tank
To fill the Cerberus tank, twist off the tank’s top metal hardware. You’ll see two semi-circular filling holes next to the tank’s centre air channel. Add e-liquid through either of the filling holes until the tank is nearly full. Do not put e-liquid in the centre hole. Replace the top cap after filling the tank.
How to Replace the Geek Vape Cerberus Atomizer Coil
Replace the atomizer coil in the Cerberus tank only when the tank is empty because the tank is likely to dump its contents when you open it. Remove the tank from the Geek Vape Aegis Solo and turn it upside down. Unscrew the tank’s bottom metal hardware, and you’ll find the atomizer coil connected to the hardware. Unscrew the old coil and discard it. Prime the new coil’s wick by putting a bit of e-liquid on each of the exposed white openings. Twist the coil into the tank’s bottom hardware before reassembling and refilling the tank. Don’t use the new Cerberus coil until you’ve given the wick several minutes to absorb the e-liquid in the tank.
How to Vape With the Geek Vape Aegis Solo
Vaping with the Geek Vape Aegis Solo is as simple as holding the fire button and inhaling. If the device is in wattage mode, you can adjust the power by pressing the plus and minus buttons on the front of the device. To change vaping modes, press the fire button three times quickly to open the menu.
How to Fix Problems With the Geek Vape Aegis Solo
The reason why the Geek Vape Aegis Solo is such a popular vape mod is its reliability. It’s designed to take a lot of punishment and give you trouble-free operation for a long time. If you happen to experience a problem with the Geek Vape Aegis Solo, though, we’re here to help. Use these tips to troubleshoot the most common issues.
Geek Vape Aegis Solo Not Charging
If nothing happens when you connect the Geek Vape Aegis Solo to the charging cable, try these steps to troubleshoot the problem.
- Try a different USB cable. Although the Aegis Solo can take a great deal of abuse, USB cables wear out quickly when they’re used every day.
- Try a different computer or a different USB port on the same computer. Don’t charge the Aegis Solo with a mobile phone or tablet charger.
- Make sure that the battery is secure and installed with the correct orientation. The battery’s positive pole should face the top of the mod. If the battery rattles inside the device, it isn’t secure.
- Replace the battery if none of the above solutions work.
Geek Vape Aegis Solo Not Working
If nothing happens when you attempt to use the Geek Vape Aegis Solo, it’s likely that the battery is dead or that the device is locked. To unlock the device, press the fire button five times quickly. If the device still doesn’t work, try charging the battery.
The Geek Vape Aegis Solo won’t operate if it doesn’t have a solid electrical connection from the battery to the atomizer coil. Make sure that the tank is tightly connected to the mod’s threading and that the coil is securely installed within the tank.
Geek Vape Cerberus Tank Leaking
If you experience leaking with the Geek Vape Cerberus tank, the most likely reason is that the tank isn’t assembled correctly. When the tank is empty, disassemble it and check the silicone gaskets for any warping or tearing that could indicate damage. Before removing a gasket, check the spare parts kit included with the Geek Vape Aegis Solo to confirm that you have a matching gasket. If you do, replace it.
When reassembling the tank, be careful not to cross the threads. Crossed threads can permanently damage your Cerberus tank and will often cause leaking. If the threads don’t turn smoothly, back them up and try again. Screw the parts back together tightly but do not over-tighten them.
Geek Vape Cerberus Tank Gurgling or Spitting
If your Geek Vape Cerberus tank gurgles or spits e-liquid into your mouth, it’s time for you to try a more modern vape coil. Geek Vape now makes mesh coils for the Cerberus tank. A mesh strip has much better wick-to-wire contact than a traditional wound coil, and it’ll virtually eliminate all leaking and gurgling.
It’s also wise to make sure that you’re using the right type of e-liquid. Cerberus coils have large wick openings to accommodate thicker e-liquids. If you’re using a thin e-liquid with a high percentage of propylene glycol, the e-liquid may seep through the coil’s large wick openings and flood the bottom of the tank. Try an e-liquid containing at least 50 percent vegetable glycerine.
