Geek Vape Bident Pod System Review

Geek Vape Bident Pod System Review

Geek Vape is a company with a pretty good reputation. Whether it’s their Aegis series or their newer MTL systems like the Flint, Geek Vape has a tendency to put out some high-quality devices with a reputation for quality control. It’s with that reputation that the Bident comes onto the scene. Another pod system, sure, but this one is by Geek Vape! Furthermore, this is possibly the first pod system to include dual coil pods, which should bump up its vapor production and flavor. In theory, anyway. Without wasting too much time up top, let’s get into the reviews and find out whether the Bident lives up to Geek Vape’s reputation.

Conclusion

Alright, so just to be perfectly clear with you all: this is a pod system, there are too many of them on the market, and, as such, I’m going to be a lot harsher in its assessment than I would have been 6 months ago. With a market absolutely flooded with pod systems, there is zero reason to pick up a product which is subpar. With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get into the cons for the Geek Vape Bident Pod System.

 

Right off the bat, for me, this product is disqualified as a viable pod system. Each reviewer pointed out mediocre flavor, despite its much-touted dual coil technology. Somehow, with twice the surface area of other pod systems, Geek Vape has created a series of pods which crank out a 5/10 flavor. Remarkably disappointing, given the performance of their coils, historically, has been quite impressive. With middle-of-the-road flavor, it’s hard to justify picking up this pod system, but we’ll continue.

 

Other issues with the Bident are far less significant, but worth mentioning. For one thing, there is adjustable voltage, but, with increments of 0.2, you’re honestly not going to be able to tell the difference. The option is nice, and always appreciated, but you’ve got to give us a bigger range to work with here, Geek Vape.

 

Finally, not a con for me, but could be for others: the Bident isn’t really much of an MTL device. If you’re a fan of that tighter, Caliburn-esque throat hit, you’re not going to find it here – and that goes for both coils. While one coil is 0.8ohm and the other is 1.2ohm, there’s very little difference between the two in terms of airflow. As such, it’s pretty uncomfortable to MTL either one, and you’re far better off going for something like a restricted DTL vape.  For some people like me, that’s totally fine. Others, not so much. You know who you are.

 

Finally, the pros are all the things you’d expect from Geek Vape. The build quality is great on this little device and it feels really nice in the hand. With a form factor similar to the Smok Nord, you also get a build quality to rival Smok’s flagship pod system.

 

It also features a really nice vape experience, aside from the flavor. The vapor production is dense and also surprisingly voluminous. For such a small device, you really get a ton of flavor, which, it seems, is what the dual coil is actually doing in this setup. While it isn’t cranking out any additional flavor, you do get the clouds you might expect from that extra coil, so that’s something, at least.

 

The airflow is also really nice and smooth, albeit too loose for MTL. Lastly, you get good capacity on all fronts. With a 950mAh battery, you’re going to likely be good to go all day long, with maybe one charge somewhere in the middle of the day. Additionally, the 3.5mL juice capacity is going to keep you topped off for a while, especially given the low wattage this device is running.

 

Final Thoughts

It’s really hard to recommend a pod system nowadays if it isn’t performing up there with the best of them. As it stands, the Geek Vape Bident checks a lot of boxes, but, unfortunately, seems to half-ass a lot of them. You get the adjustable power settings, but they don’t quite hit the way they should. You get that dual coil innovation, which is fantastic, but somehow the flavor just isn’t there. Which is a shame, really, given the build quality, battery size, and juice capacity. There’s really no reason at all to pick this up over options like the Smok Nord, the Uwell Caliburn, or the entire army of Orion clones – each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Geek Vape innovated, but not well enough, unfortunately.
