Geekvape Flint Starter Kit Review

The Geekvape Flint Starter kit with Flint Tank is the latest Vape Stick kit from Geekvape. Geekvape doesn’t need much of an introduction as they have been out for a while and have made some great stuff recently but this is their first MTL beginner stick style kit to compete with a couple of other good ones I’ve reviewed this year such as the Innokin Endura T18 II and the Vandy Vape Berserker MTL Kit, so we’ll see how this one stacks up.

It features an internal 1000mah battery and is a simple adjustable stick that has 3 modes. It features a LED light for battery charge and mode. The included tank is the Flint tank and uses their new NS coils.

Flint Mod Rundown

The Flint Mod is somewhat an adjustable simple stick with a fire button and nothing else. There is one LED to the right of the fire button. It tells you the battery level by the color. Green means 70% or more, blue means 31-69% and red means 30% or less. You can check this any time but double clicking the fire button so good job with that. I like how you can check it easily without having to fire it.

As far as adjustable goes it has 3 output modes low (3.2V), medium (3.5V), and high (3.8 volts). To adjust this simply click fire button 3 times. You’ll see it cycle between low (Red LED) medium (Blue LED) and high (Green LED). You can also turn the device on and off with 5 clicks of the fire button. Very good job on the design and functionality of this battery.

Flint Mod Rundown Continued

The stick itself is really nice. There is not much of a design. It’s just a basic stick and nothing fancy. The difference between this and the other ones I’ve seen is this style is short and fat while the other ones are usually taller and skinny.

The coloring is nice as well and mine is like a flat black and isn’t showing any signs of chipping or wearing. It can handle a 22 mm atomizer which is the size included in the Flint tank and makes it have an AIO type look to it. It feels well built and is also really light. The USB port is on the back and they list a charge rate of 1A.

They also claim there is some minimal water resistance on this stick as well. Not to the degree of the Aegis series but they claim you can run it under water and it won’t get water inside which is good enough to help if you had a juice leak or spilled juice on it.

Flint Tank Performance

Quick rundown on the tank. It’s 22mm in diameter and uses a built-in non-replaceable drip tip which appears to be an Ultem colored PMMA one on every color option with a 2ml capacity. The Flint tank uses a slide backfill method where you slide the top back which is clearly marked and fill through the good size fill hole. It worked great for me with no issues.

The airflow is made for MTL vaping and has a good range from a solid MTL but not super tight to a very loose MTL in its 5 settings. The coil system is a simple screw into the base coil system so nothing fancy there. My main focus on this though will be how does the tank perform with the Endura T18 II battery.

It comes with 2 coils. One is the 1.6-ohm coil and the other is the 1.2-ohm coil. With that said, how’s the performance? Well, the flavor is pretty good for MTL and premade coils. Right on par with the Endura T18 II and the Vandy Vape Berserker MTL Kit.

Obviously, a set up like this isn’t geared towards flavor chasing and is more geared towards helping people quit smoking and the flavor is more than good enough for it to be enjoyable to someone like that.

Personally, I found the 1.6 ohms best on the high power setting and the lowest air setting although you do notice a drop off in production when the battery hits blue level. I used both coils that came in the kit and both lasted 14-16ml so good overall there. I usually look for 10ml out of a set up like this so happy with the coil life as it doesn’t use much juice due to the low watts.

Conclusion

So with all that said, do I recommend the Geekvape Flint Starter Kit or not? I don’t like to do a hard yes or no, but this is going to lean towards the yes pretty heavily. Not a lot of starter MTL pens released in recent history although if you go back like 5-7 years it was pretty much the standard. This year all I remember personally is the Innokin Endura T18 II kit and this one is just as good as it. Overall, it’s a great little pen kit to help people quit smoking.

I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. Over the past few years I got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews I decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
