GeekVape Z50 Mod | Review

A tiny but impressive mod.

GeekVape Z50 Pod Mod Review

The GeekVape Z50 mod is a great device for beginner vapers and advanced users alike.

It features an inbuilt 2000mAh battery with 2A fast charging via USB Type-C.

The device is tailored for MTL or restricted DTL vaping with a maximum power output of 50W and a resistance range of 0.1-3ohm.

It features several power modes including Variable Wattage, Bypass, VPC, TC-TCR, and TC-SS.

The Geekvape Z50 is available in 4 colors: Black, Gun Metal, Rainbow, and Silver.

The Good

Sleek compact design, great build quality, easy to use, plenty of power modes, decent battery life from 2000 mAh inbuilt.

The Bad

Only that the rubber padding on the base is too recessed.

The Bottom Line

The Geekvape Z50 is a great little mod, full of power modes with a more than ample 2000mAh capacity battery. It has excellent build quality and is incredibly compact. It will certainly be worth buying the full kit and having the Z nano tank included, but it’s still impressive paired with any MTL tank.

Design & Style

The first thing you notice with the Z50 mod is it’s pretty slim. The Z50 Kit is small enough that you can wrap your hand around it, making it super comfortable to hold and easy to carry.

Once you place a tank on top, it might become a little more cumbersome, but no more than any other mod of this style. I’m sure the complete kit with the Nano Z tank included keeps it a compact and portable kit.

This Z50 is rather sleek and aesthetically pleasing to look at. The silver version we received for review, for example, looks like a high-quality device on the outside. It seems pretty resistant to fingerprints. I’m not sure if that will be the case with all of the other colors (it looks like the rainbow version might be a little glossy).

There are pearlescent stickers on either side of the device where the design is dependent on which color mod you have. The finish on the device is sleek and durable, preventing scratches even when you throw it around.

The device has a resistance range between 0.1-3ohm, with a maximum power output of 50W. It has been designed for use with the Z Nano tank (Zeus Nano). Its specs are in line with that tank, which is primarily MTL and restricted DTL vaping.

The Z50 has an inbuilt 2000mAh battery and a USB Type-C port for fast 2A charging. With Geekvape claiming it’s the smallest mod of this style with a 2000mAh battery, and right now, I can’t think of a smaller mod with that capacity.

The front of the Z50 houses a large screen that seemed extremely dim at first usage. Thankfully after a bit of fiddling around (and looking at the manual), I figured out how to adjust it to make it brighter. Although even at 100% I wouldn’t say it’s the brightest screen, and viewing angles are a little limited.

If most people just use the device straight out of the box, they may be a little disappointed with the screen brightness, but I guess it helps extend battery life – which is why Geekvape set it so low.

All of the buttons do seem clicky and responsive with an ever-so-slight rattle on the power button on our device (which may not be the case with all of the mods).

On the base of the Z50, Geekvape has opted for placing a tiny piece of rubber on the back edge. I can only assume this was to provide some protection when placing it down on hard surfaces. But it’s unfortunately rendered useless as it seems to be too recessed in the device.

Overall the Z50 is a compact sleek looking little mod with solid build quality.

Features

The GeekVape Z50 is a straightforward device since it does not offer many features, and all the operations are intuitive.

It has a maximum power output of 50W (hence the name), with a resistance range between 0.1-3ohm.

The Z50 houses an internal (18650) 2000mAh battery which supports 2A fast charging via the USB Type-C port.

The device does have several operating modes: Variable Wattage, Bypass, VPC, TC-TCR, and TC-SS.

As with most mods, everything is controlled via the fire and adjustment buttons.

The large display showcases all the necessary information, including wattage, resistance, amps, voltage, puffs, and a battery level indicator. You also have the option to change the display color, but as mentioned above, even at 100% the viewing angles are not great.

Performance

While we only had the Geekvape Z50 mod in for review and not the complete kit, the only actual performance we can highlight is that of the device.

I’m sure the Z Nano tank included in the full kit delivers a solid MTL or restricted DTL vape, as Geekvape has been very consistent recently with the quality of their coils.

As for the Z50 mod, it’s effortless to use and seemed accurate with the power delivery.

I know 50W is not a lot, but this device is not aimed at high wattage vaping. I tried several MTL RTAs on top, and the Z50 coped well with fast fire time on all.

I even played around with it in TC-SS mode with a Stainless Steel coil in my Berserker Mini V2, and it provided a smooth vape with no hitches.

I was a little worried that only having a 2000mAh capacity battery might be a bit of a struggle for the Z50. However, it seems to be reasonably efficient, and I was easily making it through a day of MTL vaping before I needed to seek a charger.

The charge time is pretty decent also with 2A charging topping it up in an hour.

Good Vibes


  • Compact and stealthy
  • Great build quality
  • Sleek ergonomic design
  • Strong battery life
  • 2A Fast charging
  • Decent Power Options
  • Easy to use

Bad Vibes


  • Rubber bumper on base seems pointless

Verdict

The Geekvape Z50 is a great little mod.

It has a stylish design that is incredibly comfortable in the hand, thanks to its diminutive size. That’s also backed up with excellent build quality.

The Z50 also full of power modes, which is rare to see in small devices with built-in batteries.

The 2000mAh capacity and 50W max power output may be on the small side, but this is not a DTL device. It is aimed at MTL and restricted DTL vapers, and it has everything it needs to provide a quality experience.

I can see the real value of it as a kit with the Z Nano tank, but it’s equally impressive paired with an MTL tank as a compact and portable vape.
