Aspire Archon Review

This 150 watt beast has found its way into our hearts at Smoke Guru. The compact mod is packs a punch with raw power and tonnes of features to suit any vaper.

The mod is powered by two 18650 batteries, has 5 control buttons and has some unique features which makes it stand out. If you want a personalisation feature and the ability to “child lock” your mod, then look no further than the aspire Archon 150W!

The Archon vape is constructed of zinc alloy and has three different colours available: Black/Yellow, Dark Grey/Yellow, and Blue/Yellow.

With a dimension size of 88mm height, 50mm width and 23mm thick, this mod can fit comfortably in your hand and is so light and easy to carry around. Although the mod has a smooth body, it doesn’t slip out your hand.

 

What’s in the box?

  • 1 x Aspire Archon Mod
  • 1 x Micro USB charging cable
  • 1 x User Manual

Vapor Production

With the ability to reach up to 150W, the Aspire Archon stands out by it’s vapour production. One inhale produces a huge amount of vapour accompanied with a great flavour. To boost flavour we recommend using a sub ohm tank.

  • Numerous colour options available
  • Multiple buttons
  • Child lock feature
  • Add your name on the OLED screen.
  • Excellent in-built safety features

Aspire Breeze Review

The Aspire Breeze is a pocket sized all-in-one subohm device with a range of extras to fit your needs. It’s intended for those who prefer the mouth to lungs style of vaping, which you can find out more about here. The small 650 mAH device is very similar to iCare models, but in our opinion this vape is much better in comparison.

There are a number of extras available for the Aspire Breeze, such as a 2000 mAh portable charger case and replacement coil heads.

 

What’s In The Box

1x Aspire Breeze
2x 0.6ohm coilsO-Rings (spare)
Micro USB charging cable

 

Features

 

  • A tank capacity of 2ml
  • A battery capacity of 650mAh
  • Top fill design
  • Strong Aluminum alloy body
  • View liquid volume from the side
  • Battery indicator
  • Protective Hygiene Mouthpiece cap
  • Coils can be replaced

 

 

Comments on the Aspire Breeze

Although the battery capacity is rather small with 650mAh, it’s worth noting that the device can easily fit in your pocket without getting in the way. An ideal device for stealth vaping. The device should last a few hours, which is ideal for anyone new to vaping and light vapers.

 

What we like

  • More vapour than iCare
  • Better flavour than iCare
  • Manual or automatic draw available
  • Optional MTL or DTL draws
  • Small size makes this device easy to carry and good for stealth

 

What we don’t like

  • Device cannot stand on its own
  • No instruction manual included
  • Cannot adjust airflow
  • Coil changing is frustrating

 

Convenience is the name of the game here, and Aspire made sure that their vaporizer is as easy to use and convenient as possible. Any vapers who want to take a few quick incognito draws can do so thanks to the Breeze’s versatile design. However, the always-ready nature of the draw-activated system could be inconvenient to some because the device might keep vaping for a second or two after they have stopped.

 

Conclusion

The Aspire Breeze is not for everyone, there are many reasons why you would want to buy this vape, but at the same time there are also many reasons why you don’t.

If you are new to vaping, would like a stealth vape, a cheap backup or are a light vaper then the Aspire Breeze is ideal. The small, incognito design allows you to carry it wherever you please and the unfortunate small size of the battery means that you may have to charge the vape every few hours.

If you’re after great battery life, great flavour and don’t mind using a vape a little larger, then we highly recommend the SMOK Alien, a cult favourite in the vaping community.

Aspire NX30 Review

Aspire have created a delightfully small vape called the Aspire NX30, a super simple to use miniature vape mod. If you’re looking for a vape that you won’t even notice is in your jacket pocket, then look no further. Despite it’s small size the NX30 supports up to 30 watts and the built in 2000mAh Li-Po battery packs a punch.

In this Aspire NX30 mod review we will show you exactly why this is ideal for stealth vaping, low profile tanks and makes for a superb travel companion.

 

Features

The NX30 features a mini USB port to easily recharge the mod when you desire, this also makes it easy to pick up a replacement charger if need be as usb chargers are readily available.

Most mini atomizers and RBA/RDA are compatible with the NX30 as its resistance range sits nicely at 0.2-3.5ohm and the 510 thread on top ensures a good fit.

Using high quality alloys which have a premium feel in your hand, which is built around the Aspire NX30’s 0.86 inch OLED display is everything you want in such a small package. The OLED is organised conveniently with everything you need on screen.

Available in black, silver, red and blue you have a variety of choices and measuring 22.5mm by 36mm by 60mm it’s worth repeating that this mod is small and suits all needs.

Resistance Parameters: 0.2ohm to 3.5ohm

Continuous Fire Time 10s

Charging Port: Micro-USB

OLED: 0.86 inch

Dimensions: 22.5mm by 36mm by 60mm

Aspire Cleito Exo Tank Review

The Aspire Cleito Exo Tank is a fantastic all round tank for vapers that are looking to bring sub-ohm vaping into the mix.

First of all, it comes in a wide range of colours, allowing you to create an awesome looking vape. What we really need to focus on in this review is to put emphasis on how good this tank is for beginner or expert vapers that are looking to upgrade into the sub-ohm vaping era.

One of the most noticeable features that separates this tank from many others is that the tank is not mostly made of hardened glass, the majority of it is covered. If you are a huge fan of the aesthetics of your vape, then this could be an ideal product.

The tank itself is slim and will fit 2ml of e-liquid, slightly less than many tanks have to offer. However, a crafty idea that Aspire actually implemented in this product was to allow this tank to be compatible with previous Cleito coils, allowing you to essentially extend the tank to 3.5ml out of the box.

One of the most notable features of the Aspire Exo Tank other than it’s wide range of designs is the unique way in which it processes air to create a great tasting flavour. The air gets sucked in at the top through it’s unique vents which allows the full tank to remain cool while it is producing hot vapour in the centre through the coils. This according to Aspire and many vaper reviews, creates a great haze with a light and well tasting flavour for many different brands of eliquid.

Features

Height is 57mm and the width is 23.5mm, a good slim size.

2ml capacity out of the box with regular coils

Stainless Steel with a wide range of colour options

PCTG – food plastic safe

 

Advantages

Produces a great amount of vapour in a short period of time

Well built product, available in a wide range of colours and styles

Easy to fill up

Affordable tank for sub-ohm vaping

Uses a unique air flow system allowing for a better flavour

 

Disadvantages

A small e-liquid capacity out of the box

It uses sub-ohm so it’s maybe not the best thing for casual vapers

 

Conclusion

The Aspire Cleito Exo Tank is a reliable tank if you are keen about the look and taste of your vape. The product comes in a wide verity of very cool styles and designs which is great for vapers that want to put that extra realm of customisation into their vape. The product is uniquely designed to offer a great flavour by the way in which the tank intakes air, this is obviously subjective but it is said to provide a better taste on the liquid from each draw. All round it’s a great product with it’s only main downfall being that it has a 2ml capacity when most tanks in this era have 3.5ml or more capacities. With that being said, if you are keen in this product for its features but you want the extra space, there is the option to do so by buying some of the old Cleito coils, which are smaller and ultimately will increase the size within the tank.

Aspire Archon Evo Tank Review

The Aspire Archon Evo Tank is a great all round tank for vapers that want to enter into the sub-ohm vaping game.

The original tank of this kind brought sub-ohm vaping to the worldwide market. Much better than the days when we had to build our own sub ohm tanks from scratch. For average smokers, MTL vaping might be tough and this may not be the best tank for you.

The build quality and design of this product is sturdy and simple. The tank on an overall basis looks great. It features a silver core with a black bottom and top. One of the most notable features is how much space that is available within the tank itself. The standard size comes a 2ml capacity which is enough for an average casual vape. However, this can be extended to 4ml with an extension kit that you can purchase easily from numerous retailers. The tank is also made of stainless steel meaning that the preservation of the e-liquid flavour will be very good overall.

Coils are super easy to change, it’s as simple as screwing and unscrewing – which is a massive bonus! Also, the whole vape is very easy to clean. All of the parts can be disassembled without very much effort at all.

Screwing everything together and getting the vape ready for use is very easy. This allows you to easily switch between a 2ml tank and a 4ml tank.

 

Features

  • 2ml Capacity (4ml With Extension Kit)
  • Top Fill
  • Pyrex Glass Tank
  • Compatible With Existing Atlantis and Triton Coils

 

Advantages

  • Produces a great amount of vapour in a short period of time
  • Easy to fill up
  • Looks slick and it’s built to be sturdy
  • It’s compatible with other aspire coils
  • A fair and decent price
  • The tank IS Extendable

 

Disadvantages

  • You need to empty the tank before swapping coils
  • It uses sub-ohm so it’s maybe not the best thing for casual vapers

 

Conclusion

The Aspire Archon Evo is a great tank for vapers that want the option to extend the size of their tank. The overall design, look and feel of the product is very simple and sturdy and would work well as a standard piece of kit for an everyday vaper. The tank can reach very high temperatures making it great for competitive vaping too.

What’s The Best MTL Tank In The UK?

Join us as we discover the best MTL tanks the UK has to offer. We will take an in depth look at the most raved about tanks and recommend the best.

 

What are Mouth To Lung Tanks?

Mouth to lung tanks are made for vapers who prefer to take a hit into their mouth first and then inhaling into their lungs. Typically a thing of the past, mouth to lung tanks was the standard way to vape as the tanks were originally made with a restricted chamber.

 

Simulating smoking a cigarette, the restricted airflow also increases the flavour production. One of the benefits of using an MTL Tank with your ecig is that they use less wattage than open airflow tanks. This increases the battery life and also produces less vapour.
