The Galex Pro is a great-looking device. It’s modern and has a high-end look all around; the button, the screen, and the casing are all high-quality. The gradient colors on the case are nice and smooth too.
There are two screens on the Galex Pro. On the front is your usual screen, which shows the resistance rating of the coil, a puff counter, your wattage setting, the lock symbol, and your battery level.
And then, on the side of the device, another screen shows some fancy colorful graphics. This is what Freemax is calling “full spectrum vaping,” so basically lots of colors on the screen.
It shows the Galex name surrounded by a bunch of dots. It moves through a variety of colors. You have two modes; breathing and spectrum cycling. The breathing mode fades in and out as it transitions colors and the cycling mode moves through colors without the fade. You can also turn the screen off entirely if you want. You press the firing button two times fast to change the modes.
While the pod is in the device, you can see through the pod to see how much liquid is in there too, which is nice.
The size is 23.5mm x 16.95mm x 110.46mm
Features & Performance
To turn the device on, press the firing button five times fast. And the same to turn it off.
You fire the device with either the firing button, or you can take a hit and it’ll auto-draw.
The Galex Pro can be set anywhere between 5 to 25 watts. To change the wattage, press the firing button three times fast. Then you press the firing button to change the wattage. There’s only one button here, so the wattage only goes up. When you hit 25, it rolls over back down to 5 watts. The device will also auto-set to an appropriate wattage when you attach the pod.
Another feature I found interesting here is the puff counter. Freemax made the counter auto-reset when the device hasn’t been used for 6 hours. Usually, these counters go on forever but this resets to zero daily. I really like this idea. I never use puff counters because I don’t care how many puffs I take. But I could see this being useful for smokers who might be wondering how many puffs they take per day without having to go into the settings menu every day to reset it. I think this could be useful for a lot of people.
If you want to lock the firing button, you press the firing button four times fast.
The pods hold 2ml of e-liquid and are top-fill. To fill them up, you pop the cap off the top and fill it up through the little red hole. This pod uses replaceable coils, which I think is great. I love having replaceable coils. The coils plug into the bottom of the pod and press-fit. Just make sure the straight edges of the coil line up with the straight edges on the pod and make sure it’s in there tight before you fill it.
The pod drops right into the device and is held in place with some strong little magnets.
Freemax also says that the pods are leak-resistant which they say is the result of a maze chimney and a cotton pad placed in the bottom of the pod for extra protection from leaks. In the months I’ve been using it, I haven’t had any problems with leaking so these features seem to work well.
Freemax used a line of coils they call the GX-P Mesh coils which uses their latest version of coil tech called FM SaltCoilTech 4.0. These coils are designed for mouth-to-lung vaping. They’re made with SS904L Mesh, and they use tea fiber wicking.
You get two coils in the box:
GX Mesh 0.8 Ohm – This coil is designed for 13-18 watts and is recommended to use at 15 watts. These are designed for restricted-direct-lung and mouth-to-lung vaping to use with either freebase or nic salt liquids.
GX Mesh 1.0 Ohm – This coil is rated for 12-16 watts and recommended for use at 13 watts. This coil is designed specifically for mouth-to-lung vaping and nic salts, so you’ll get a tight draw, and you’d usually use this with high-nicotine liquids.
The device has an 800mAh battery and charges using a USB-C cable. 800mAh is a pretty good-sized battery for a device this size, so I’m happy with that.
I love the way this device looks. It’s just such a great design. It also has a nice comfortable size, which I love holding, and that’s also great for portability. The coils both work excellent for the wattages they were designed for, and the flavor is excellent from each one. The features Freemax included in such a simple device are great too. I like that you can change the colorful screen settings, adjust the wattage, and lock the button. And it’s both an auto-draw and button-fire device. It’s an awesome device overall.
The Galex Pro was sent to me for review from Freemax, and I’m seeing this online for $23.99.
