If you're looking for an in-depth review of the Geek Vape Frenzy, you've come to the right place.
The Geek Vape Frenzy AIO (all-in-one) kit has been out for about a little bit over two months now. It comes in as a new addition to the family of box pod-mods that have recently been appearing on the market in droves. Likely designed to compete with the Lost Vape Orion and SMOK Trinity Alpha, we’re going to look into how it holds up as a daily carry.
Geek Vape, a manufacturer whose reputation precedes them thanks to the extra-durable Aegis series of mods which I still use to this day, as well as their flavourific RBAs such as the Griffin RTAs, the Avocado RDTAs and the Geek Vape Tsunami RDAs, have recently entered the pod scene as well with the Frenzy. Will their first solution for high strength nic salts be remembered with the same fondness as I have for my first Griffin 22? I’ve had one in my rotation for the past few weeks, so let’s see what all the fuss is about!

My first impressions
Upon taking it out of the box, the first thing that strikes the eye is the beautiful carbon fiber pattern on the box and the sleek, sexy, angles of the device. The machining looks very precise and the battery is sturdy.
Below the button is an LED power indicator so that you can readily see how much voltage you’re putting through your device as you go. Just underneath the LED is the micro-USB charging port.
The round cylindrical drip-tip appears to be roughly the same size & shape a traditional combustible cigarette’s filter tip, which for the person who is picking up a pod as a steppingstone from smoke to vapor, will be a welcome sight.
The button is comfortably reached as it rests once again under your thumb’s natural resting position. The button has a nice, satisfying click to it and it does not feel loose in the device.
The device is surprisingly compact and comfortably fits in one’s pocket and hand as it is smaller than your average credit card and only 1.5cm wide. The charging port does not wiggle, and the cable feels properly secured in the battery. The drip tip is easy to get used to and provides the right amount of suction given the more restrictive airflow the Frenzy offers. It is not a detachable/interchangeable drip-tip.
On the bottom of the pod is an adjustable airflow ring. Spinning the ring adjusts two ports on opposite sides of the ring.
The only downside to the device’s shape and build is that if you pick it up from the pod, you are likely to end up with a pod in one hand, and your mod on the floor as it may fall due to the magnets not being able to carry its’ weight.
(Re)Filling your pods
The Geek Vape Frenzy’s pods boast an open filling system which is easy to use. Once the pod is out and flipped upside down, a small flap lifts up to reveal two rubber inserts for easy, leak-proof and mess-free filling. The actual reservoir is a transparent plastic, allowing you to easily gauge how much ejuice is actually left in your pod.
Using the Frenzy
Changing your coils is a breeze. Be sure the tank is empty or tilted so that the space where the coil connects to the chimney/drip tip is free of any liquid. Failing to do so will cause your juice to pour through drip-tip and potentially cause a mess. Otherwise using the device is business as usual.
The 950mAH battery allows me to confidently carry my Frenzy with me without being too worried about whether I will make it through the day. The micro-USB charging port also allows for pass-through charging.
The 0.7-ohm Kanthal mesh coils provide great flavor considering their small size and vapor production. Running them on the green and blue settings (2.9V and 2.7V respectively) with wide open airflow gives a smooth, delicious, warm and restricted DTL vape with just a tiny bit of throat hit. The white power setting (2.5V) does feel a bit underpowered and it makes it harder to really taste and appreciate the juice you’re vaping, however there isn’t a considerable difference in terms of battery consumption running your Frenzy at the higher power settings.
The 1.2-ohm Stainless Steel temperature control coils provide a more restricted, MTL vape. I’ve enjoyed vaping a cool-fruit flavor on both 420F and 440F, and a tobacco or dessert flavor would vape superbly at 460F as well. The temperature control works seamlessly and provides a very steady vape.
Pods, pods, pods (and coils)
The actual pod itself is replaceable should it ever get damaged or cracked, but so far (despite my clumsy self) mine is still unscathed despite quite a few falls on concrete and asphalt. You may want to keep multiple pods if you like having different flavors on the go and given the relatively low-cost of the Frenzy and its coils & pods, that may not be a bad idea.
After having primed the coil and allowed it to soak for a good 15-20 minutes, I notice that there has been a break-in period on each coil I’ve used. After about 30-45 minutes of vaping, the break-in period seems to pass and we’re on to optimal flavor. As an all-day-carry, and running several refills a day, I’m able to get peak flavor performance for about 4-5 days, like what I’ve became accustomed to with the Caliburn. After a week, we notice some of the more subtle nuances in the flavors disappearing, but no dry hits.
The TC & Mesh coils seem to have the same longevity thus far.
What are my thoughts?
I’ve quite enjoyed my Frenzy so far, so much that it now has a permanent position in my device rotation. It is elegant, sturdy, reliable and provides a very satisfying vape. I enjoy its form-factor and simplicity. I’ve been wanting a tasty, more restricted vape from a pod device for a while, and the Frenzy satisfies that need.
If you’re like me and enjoy a flavorful, tighter draw with a bit more hit without having to compromise flavor (or shell out the big, big bucks), the Frenzy is for you!
