GeekVape 1FC Review - the 15 Minute Fast-Charging Pod Kit

5th Jan 2022

GeekVape 1FC Fast Charging Pod Kit and Type C Cable

It’s the start of a new year, with a sweeping sense of optimism for change in 2022. And what better way to do that than quitting smoking to protect yourself and others with a simple vaping system that’s as close as you’ll get to cigarettes, without inhaling combustible tobacco which turns into tar and other dangerous toxins.

With so many different top vaping brands to choose from including SMOK and VOOPOO, vapers seek the latest innovative devices to keep them interested. Another example of manufacturing quality is with GeekVape, which has designed and released the 1FC and ONE towards the end of December 2021. These simplistic pod systems are fantastic portable kits that look similar but offer slightly different features. In this review, we will take a look at the 1FC, which is the fast charging alternative with a slightly smaller battery capacity.

How the GeekVape 1FC Differs From the GeekVape ONE

There is a major difference and a couple of less noticeable modifications that separate the GeekVape 1FC from the GeekVape One. With the 1FC, it’s essentially one of the cleanest looking and smartest vape kits you can buy after giving up cigarettes. And better yet and the highest selling point of all, the 2A pre-installed battery means it’s fully chargeable in just 15 minutes! GeekVape uses similar technology to the popular Obelisk vape mod to provide vapers with the no-fuss experience they crave after throwing away cigarettes. Smoking is an addictive habit because it’s easily accessible, contains nicotine and doesn’t require any setup or maintenance.

With the 1FC, it’s the same and the fastest charge you’ll find. Its battery is 550mAh, which is a generous amount for mouth to lung vaping. Perhaps not long enough to last all day depending on how much you vape and the e-liquid you use. Nevertheless, with a 15-minute full charge, it’s not going to matter! The One has a slightly bigger battery at 780mAh and lasts longer but takes longer to charge.

GeekVape 1FC Key Features & Specifications

  • 550mAh battery charges rapidly in just 15 minutes with a USB-PD adapter!

How Do the Pods Perform?

It’s a useful little vape kit in any situation, largely due to the performance and ability to switch between two kinds of pods. Each is tailored to traditional mouth to lung vaping, meaning inhaling and exhaling with the same technique that someone would when smoking. The options are a 1.2 Ohm coil inside one pod and a 0.8 Ohm coil inside the other. With a slightly tighter draw and requiring less power, the 1FC is the ideal option for quick vaping and charging when needed.

Meanwhile, the 0.8 Ohm offers a slightly looser draw so closer to a restrictive direct lung hit. You get a generous amount of cloud from this pod, exceeding the 1.2 Ohm ever so slightly but both provide great flavour and consistency with each warm vape. The best features of all for each resistance are the One pods being top fill which can stay in place while you top up with e-liquid with no need to remove them during the process. In addition, they offer a strong magnetic connection for peace of mind.

Appearance Breakdown

Available in a range of colour themes such as Rainbow, Gun Metal and a Silver-Blue contrast, the GeekVape 1FC is stylish, slim and compact for easy vaping on the go. Weighing only 70g, its lightweight nature and durability create the perfect vape for beginners seeking a simple kit. With the soft material at the back of the device, it has a texture reminiscent of the previous models in the Aegis line and boasts three battery level indicators, highlighting the amount of voltage used:

GeekVape 1FC Design With LED Indicators
  • One light equals 3.3 Volts or less
  • Two lights equal 3.4-3.8 Volts
  • Three lights equal 3.8-4.2 Volts

Overall, the design quality is excellent and sturdy like most of the GeekVape products. The mouthpiece is an ergonomic shape that’s built with the MTL vaper in mind. At 22mm wide and 116mm in length, it’s not too overbearing in size and should fit in your pocket or at least in your bag.

Any Disadvantages?

  • No adjustable airflow
  • E-liquid level difficult to see

Is the 1FC the Best Pod Kit Available in 2022?

While the GeekVape 1FC is certainly going to be a hit in 2022, it’s got some serious competition from brands like Elf Bar and Uwell. Because the vaping industry always evolves to the customers' expectations, we’re continuing to see many trendy vape kits that will please those wanting a simple pod kit, which is in fashion right now. Below are our predictions for the early frontrunners in the New Year:

Uwell Caliburn A2

The Caliburn A2 is a stunning pod vape kit from the popular Caliburn series from Uwell. Comfortable to hold in the hand, it vapes like a dream and follows on from the original Caliburn with a similar design and performance. Nevertheless, in 2022 the A2 offers even more features and benefits for the modern vaper. It includes a lovely clear window which offers a vaper a window into the future, allowing them to see how much e-liquid is left and to top up at the right time so they don’t burn the coils.

Uwell Caliburn A2 Orange

Plus, the Caliburn A2 has the popular mouthpiece from the first in the series which solidified Uwell’s position as the dominant player in the pod system market. Altogether, it’s a slightly lower battery capacity than the GeekVape 1FC with a 520mAh but still produces amazing flavour and performance time after time with a generous fixed wattage of 15W.

Elf Bar Mate 500

Elf Bar hasn’t reinvented the wheel in terms of pod kits but the Elf Bar Mate 500 is fast becoming an established favourite among vapers who loved the disposable Elf Bar 600 with a wide range of tantalising flavours. Elf Bar has answered the call from e-cigarette enthusiasts from the brand that wants to hold on to the device, producing a simple pod system with the same flavour options but throwing away the pods instead of the battery. Better for the environment but with the same great taste, they have the potential to disrupt the pod system space filled by the likes of Uwell, VOOPOO, Vaporesso and SMOK.

Will All Vapers Love the GeekVape 1FC?

For an affordable price, you get a high-quality mouth to lung pod system that delivers excellent flavour. The GeekVape 1FC coils last a week and maybe two at a push, depending on how much you vape and the thickness of the e-liquid used. The e-liquid is super simple to top up thanks to the design and it looks slick and stylish for the modern vaper.

Best of all, you have super quick charging which charges to at least 80% capacity in 15 minutes, but perhaps 20 minutes or so for the full charge. You can adjust the voltage by clicking the button three times with the LED indicators changing, which is a useful feature to slightly alter the performance. Overall, this is a fantastic vape kit for any vaper and particularly beneficial to a new vaper that wants to quit smoking and rely upon a basic setup option that’s quick to charge and use at home or out and about.
