Geek Bar Pulse X Review

When the Geek Bar Pulse was released at the end of 2023, it was a bit of a revolution and caused quite a stir within the vaping community. Prior to the Geek Bar Pulse, no other disposable vape had offered such a compelling set of advanced features like multiple vaping modes, a smart display, adjustable airflow and even an on-off switch. The Geek Bar Pulse might be the most popular disposable vape in the world today, but the industry moves quickly. Already, there are other vapes that copy the key features of the Geek Bar Pulse and offer those features along with even larger e-liquid capacities.

So, how has Geek Bar responded to this shift in the industry? They’ve responded in the only way possible – by updating their most famous product with a new one that’s even better.

Enter the Geek Bar Pulse X.

It has all of the features that made you fall in love with the original Geek Bar Pulse, but it combines those features with an even larger capacity of up to 25,000 puffs. We’re going to spoil the review a bit here, but the Geek Bar Pulse X is probably the best disposable vape on the market today.

If you want to know why, though, you’ll just have to continue reading.

What’s the Price of the Geek Bar Pulse X?

The Geek Bar Pulse X features a large display that wraps around the device.

The Geek Bar Pulse X costs $15.75 at the time of writing and is available both as a single device and in packs of 10 at a discounted price of $149.50 for those who prefer to buy in bulk. If you can’t find your favorite flavor in a bulk pack right now, bookmark the page and come back soon.  The Geek Bar Pulse X is extremely popular, and we’re working hard to keep as many flavors in stock as possible.

Compare the $15.75 price of the Geek Bar Pulse X to the $13.45 price of the original Geek Bar Pulse, and the value is obvious given that the Geek Bar Pulse X lasts almost twice as long.

Note that these prices are correct at the time of writing, but all prices are subject to change.

What Features Make the Geek Bar Pulse X Special?

The Geek Bar Pulse X has AI -- because just about everything does these days.

In case you’re not already initiated into the world of the Geek Bar Pulse, we’ll explain the special features that make this device so unique.

  • The Geek Bar Pulse X has a switch on the bottom that adjusts the airflow and allows you to use the device in either single-coil or dual-coil (“Pulse”) mode. In the single-coil mode, you’ll get up to 25,000 puffs. In the dual-coil mode, you’ll get double the vapor production, but the capacity of the device will be reduced to about 15,000 puffs. The switch also turns the device off, making this one of the few disposable vapes with an on-off switch.
  • When you use the Geek Bar Pulse X in the single-coil mode, it alternates between the two coils each time you puff. Sweetened e-liquid causes residue to form on a vape coil and eventually causes the coil to produce a burnt flavor. Since the Geek Bar Pulse X divides the load – and thus, the residue formation – between the two coils, it lasts longer than many other disposable vapes before it begins to taste burnt.
  • The Geek Bar Pulse X has the same smart screen as the original Geek Bar Pulse, but it’s much larger and wraps around the device. In addition to showing the device’s battery life, e-liquid supply and current vaping mode, the Pulse X also has light-up constellations that appear when you puff on the device.
  • The Geek Bar Pulse X has fast-charging technology, allowing the battery to come up to an 80-percent charge in just 20 minutes. After that, the rest of the charging process happens at a slower rate.
  • The Pulse X has the same translucent bite-friendly mouthpiece that people loved from the original Pulse.

What Are the Best Geek Bar Pulse X Flavors?

Grapefruit Refresher and Blue Rancher are two of the best Geek Bar Pulse X flavors.

At launch, the Geek Bar Pulse X has a selection of 16 different flavors. We cover all of them elsewhere on this site in our massive guide to all 87 Geek Bar flavors, so you’ll want to check that article out for a complete overview. In this review, though, we’ll focus on just a few of our favorites.

  • Blue Rancher: This is an absolute must for any candy lover. A juicy blue raspberry note combines with a hard candy base to create a true delight for the senses.
  • Grapefruit Refresher: Plain grapefruit e-liquids are way too rare, but here’s an exception for the real citrus aficionados. It’s got the perfect combination of sweetness and tartness, making the “Refresher” name very appropriate.
  • Sour Fcuking Fab: Here’s a great twist on Geek Bar’s most famous flavor. The original Fcuking Fab’s combination of sweet tropical fruits really captured the vaping community’s imagination, and this update does it one better with the addition of a tangy sour candy note.
  • Sour Mango Pineapple: Here’s another great flavor for anyone who loves tart e-liquids. The addition of a sour candy note really offsets the sweetness of this flavor’s mango-pineapple base.

If the Geek Bar Pulse X has any shortcoming, it’s the fact that the flavor selection isn’t quite as large as that of the original Pulse. That’s going to change quickly as production of the Pulse X ramps up. For now, though, there are a few popular flavors for the original Pulse that aren’t available for the Pulse X yet.

How to Use the Geek Bar Pulse X

The Geek Bar Pulse X charges to 80 percent in just 20 minutes.

If you’ve used the original Geek Bar Pulse or any other disposable vape, you’ll already know the drill here because there’s nothing about using the Geek Bar Pulse X that’s drastically different from other disposables. If you’re new to vaping, though, you might find a brief overview helpful. Here’s how to use the Geek Bar Pulse X.

  • Unboxing the device: Tear open the box and remove the inner pouch. Open the pouch and remove the Geek Bar Pulse X. Remove the plastic covering the device’s screen. Remove the plug from the mouthpiece and flip the switch to turn the device on.
  • Using the device: To use the Geek Bar Pulse X, just puff on the mouthpiece.
  • Changing the settings: Flip the switch to the “Close” position to turn the device off. In the middle position, the Geek Bar Pulse X uses the standard vaping mode. In the “Pulse” position, the device uses Pulse Mode. The display also shows the device’s current mode.
  • Charging the device: Connect the Geek Bar Pulse X to your computer to charge the battery. You’ll see the battery’s current charge level under the lightning bolt icon at the top of the screen.

What to Do if Your Geek Bar Pulse X Isn’t Working

The Geek Bar Pulse X has a soft, bite-friendly mouthpiece

The Geek Bar Pulse X is produced by Geek Vape, one of the world’s most respected manufacturers. They’re known for making the world’s most durable vape mods and pod systems, and they’ve brought those same high standards to the world of disposable vapes. In other words, you can expect completely reliable performance with this device.

If you do happen to experience a problem with the Geek Bar Pulse X, though, here’s some advice that can help you fix it.

  • Pulse X isn’t hitting: If the device has never worked, make sure that you’ve removed the plug from the mouthpiece and used the switch to turn it on. You can also try puffing a little more firmly in case the puff sensor is stuck. If the Pulse X worked previously and now doesn’t, try charging the battery.
  • Pulse X isn’t charging: If the Pulse X doesn’t light up when you connect it to your computer, try connecting it to a wall adapter. Make sure it’s a low-amperage adapter; don’t use the charger for your smartphone. If that doesn’t work, try charging the Pulse X with a different USB cable and make sure that the device’s charging port is clean.
  • Pulse X tastes burnt: Wait a little longer between puffs to give the device’s wick adequate time to equalize itself. If the Pulse X tastes burnt every time you puff on it, it’s probably out of vape juice. When the device has no e-liquid left, it’s time to replace it.

Geek Bar Pulse X Review: Wrapping Up

The Geek Bar Pulse X is a terrific update for the world’s most popular disposable vape and is probably the most advanced disposable on the market right now. It’s hard to imagine, in fact, what other new features companies could add to the current crop of disposables to make them better without moving too far away from the original ethos of convenience and simplicity. If there’s any disposable vape that’s absolutely essential to buy right now, this is definitely the one.

Best Points

  • All of the great features that made the original Geek Bar Pulse so popular, now with a much higher puff capacity.
  • The screen is larger and wraps around the device. In addition to showing the device’s status, it also displays a constellation-themed light show while you vape.
  • Faster charging -- the battery reaches an 80-percent charge in just 20 minutes.

Needs Improvement

  • The flavor selection isn’t as large as that of the original Geek Bar Pulse, although that’s likely to change as production ramps up. At the moment, Geek Bar is still having trouble keeping up with the initial wave of demand.
