Aspire Nautilus AIO Vape Kit Review
Summary: With replaceable coils but a pod kit design, the Nautilus is a unique vape that combines the convenience of entry level kits with the cost effectiveness of replaceable coils. A unique and pocketable entry level mouth to lung kit.
Pod vaping meets coils
Most people familiar with the world of vaping will have heard of the Aspire Nautilus tanks. Following this success is their new pod kit, the Aspire Nautilus AIO. It combines the convenience of a pod with replaceable coils. The other unique thing about this kit is there are now two coil varieties – both are 1.8 Ohms but one is for nicotine salts and is for freebase nicotine e-liquids. Under TPD, it’s a 2ml pod which clicks into place on top of the battery and to remove it you just need to press the clips either side of the pod to release the locking function. There have been a huge number of pod kits released onto the market recently (as well as new ranges of nic salts to go with them) so is the Nautilus AIO worth looking at as an option?
It’s an open pod system, which is great for people who get bored of the same e-liquid flavours quickly and with these coils you can use any nic salt or 50:50 liquid you like with the corresponding coil. The fact the coils themselves are replaceable means the Nautilus AIO is a less wasteful and more cost effective option than throwing the whole pod away too. Using this pod kit is as simple as you’d expect, 5 clicks to turn the device on or off and press the firing button to vape. The battery is 1000mAh which should see most people through a day of vaping but if you’re a chain vaper (as many of us are) you may need to recharge at some point. However, even when the battery does run low you can still charge and use it as it has passthrough charging, although the supplied charger doesn’t have a great deal of length. The LED on the firing button will turn orange when your power drops too low so you’ll know when you plug in.
It is a mouth to lung device, but inside the pod there’s the option to adjust your airflow. It’s quite a restricted draw so would be best for recent quitters who enjoy this method of vaping. The flavour you get from this kit is great and despite being mouth to lung you get a pretty decent amount of vapour from it too. Refilling is simple too, just click your pod out of the battery, pop open the bung and refill. It’s incredibly lightweight and the satin touch finish is a pleasant feel in the hand. In terms of the build itself there are a few things that could have been better. The coils, whilst replaceable, will cause any remaining e-liquid in your pod to pour out the top when you invert it to unscrew the old coil and put in a fresh one. Not a major but it’s something that may be an issue if your coil burns out just as you’ve filled your pod. The pod itself comes with a top cap which is great for when you’re in transit, but unfortunately it doesn’t click onto the bottom of the battery so you’ll need to keep it somewhere safe when it’s not clicked into place.
All in all, it’s a convenient, easy to use and cost efficient vape for those looking for a first mouth to lung device or something convenient to take on a night out. The flavour and vapour are both impressive for such a compact kit too. It’s small enough to easily fit in a pocket and the pod design means it’s all but completely leak proof. The few cons it has are balanced out by the adaptability it carries with its coil types and the fact that it’s an open pod system, allowing you to adjust your nicotine and liquid preferences over time.
