The Geek Bar Pulse Collection has proven to be a smash hit with adult vapers. With full-sized LED screen, and an astronaut themed display it cuts an attractive figure while remaining a compact and easy to use draw-activated disposable vape.
But the real strength of the Geek Bar Pulse is the vaping experience it delivers with a design that essentially provides two mesh coils with totally different performance parameters. You can toggle between Pulse Mode and Regular Mode using a switch on the bottom of the device. The Geek Bar Pulse might not be the first or only boosted disposable vape on the market, but it appears to be the most ambitious.
Geek Bar Pulse Performance and Features
As discussed in our Geek Bare Pulse review, this is a device that is attractive and impressive on the technological side. At the end of the day, it all boils down to flavor quality and we will be examining their new additions today. But the core of the Geek Bar Pulse is in fact a core.
This processing power allows this disposable vape to offer two distinct vaping modes, Regular Mode, and Pulse Mode, and provide excellent performance even with a low battery. These modes are possible because of dual coil design.
The screen is also handsome, if perhaps excessive since it is simply monitoring e-liquid and battery life while displaying which mode you are in. There are other nice exterior details as well. The plastic shell is transparent and is a non-rigid and safe polymer which makes for a more comfortable mouthpiece. The mouthpiece itself is nicely tapered and thought was put into the shape, afterall it is responsible for handling two modes.

We have already pitted this disposable vape head-to-head against a strong potential rival. Check out this feature for more information: Spaceman 10K Pro versus Geek Bar Pulse.
Both are strong and assertive disposable devices. Both relied on astronaut branding and promises of interstellar travel to a fruit planet immersed in the flavors adult vapers prefer. The Spaceman 10K Pro generated robust hits with an airflow control, which even allows for a madcap direct-lung punch of 5% strength nicotine salts.
The Geek Bar Pulse had a slightly more graceful solution. It offers two very distinct performance envelopes in one disposable vape. There is regular mode, which uses an advanced chip to extract 15,000 puffs from the 16ml capacity and is designed to not suffer a drop-off in flavor or vapor when the battery is close to dead.
Geek Bar Vaping Experience
Pulse Mode brings 20 watts and a sub-ohm coil to the disposable vapes party. This of course reduces battery life and cuts the puff count to 7500 if you run exclusively in this mode, but it ups the vapor performance. You will be able to track the juice level of course with the massive screen.
A switch on the bottom of the device allows the user to switch between Pulse Mode and Regular Mode. A rocket ship graphic lets you know what mode you choose, although for vapers who find Pulse Mode overpowered, it will be pretty obvious right off the draw.
Geek Bar Regular Mode
The ability to tap into a higher power setting, at the cost of puff count, is a selling point of the Geek Bar Pulse. What makes it an extremely attractive device to most adult vapers is the efficiency of Regular Mode.
In this mode, which is by no means underpowered but simply doesn't have the intense oomph of Pulse Mode, it can extract up to 15,000 puffs. The Dual Core allows good quality vapor on a low battery and the coil is designed to provide great flavor until the end.
Geek Bar Pulse Flavors
The original collection of Geek Bar Pulse flavors was extensive. The five new flavors not only expand the choices but feature cryptic zodiac names. This is all a part of Geek Bar's space exploration branding. But are these flavors out of this world?
Pisces Black Cherry Geek Bar Pulse
With a celestial drawing of the Pisces Constellation, few disposable vapes offer the astronomical and astrological educational tools of the Black Cherry Geek Bar Pulse. The symbol of pisces is of course two fish, so it is only natural that this friendly and selfless water sign was applied to a Black Cherry flavored disposable vape. There is a tartness and richness in this black cherry that distinguishes it from the many red cherry vapes. A hint of cool helps balance the notes for all-day vaping.
Scorpio Blue Mint Geek Bar Pulse
With an image of the feared Scorpion, or at least a collection of stars purported to look like a scorpion, it is safe to say that the Scorpio Blue Mint Geek Bar Pulse was in fact named after the zodiac symbol and not the hilarious Hank Scorpio character from a 1996 episode of The Simpson's. This is a nice flavor, the minty notes distinguish it from a classic blue razz ice. But it has enough common ground where it is likely to appeal to almost any adult vaper who likes cooling fusions of fruit and confection flavor.
Sagittarius Cherry Bomb Geek Bar Pulse
This is a red cherry flavor, more explosively sweet and bold than its black cherry stablemate. Hence its name: Cherry Bomb Geek Bar Pulse. A cold and sweet burst cherries greets you on inhale and the exhale is smooth and not overly cloying. This is a big deal as some red cherry flavors will run a bit saccharine. The tie-in between this open and accessible flavor and the frightening horse bodied Archer of Sagittarius is best understood by Geek Bar's marketing department.
Capricorn Dragon Melon
A dynamic, expressive and bold flavor, it is always remarkable how well watermelon translates into a vape flavor. The Capricorn Dragon Melon Geek Bar Pulse doesn't stop there. It also has sweet pear and exotic dragon fruit flavors. Is it the GOAT? Well that is the Capricorn symbol. At the very least, it is a worthy addition to a strong flavor line-up.
Aquarius Grape Blow Pop
Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is one of the three air signs of the zodiac. The Aquarius Grape Blow Pop Geek Bar Pulse is a classic purple-hued grape confection vape, which naturally tastes a heck of a lot like the delicious artificial Concord grape notes found in chewing gum. This flavor is pure nostalgia in a puff. And competes hard to be one of the best grape vapes yet.
New Geek Bar Pulse Flavors: Our Verdict
Despite the astronaut and zodiac branding, the new Geek Bar Pulse flavors are not exactly revolutionary. They blend cooling notes with popular fruit flavors. Nonetheless, they are well-executed and represent the flavors most popular with adult vapers. This makes them worthy additions to a great disposable vape collection.
