Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer Speed Review
We know not everybody has time to read our full reviews. So here is a quick category by category breakdown of the Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer followed by a quick synopsis.[wp-review]
The Nautilus is a clearomizer with one big, defining feature. It has a ring on the outside that you can rotate to regulate the flow of air. To those who have used clearomizers before, this is a big deal.
Read on to find out if Aspire pulls off this innovation and if it manages to actually be a decent clearomizer beyond this feature.
Right from the start, you will probably notice how large this clearomizer is. The packaging says it is made for 5 mils of liquid, but you can add another half a mil to that comfortably.
The Nautilus’ glass tubing is 22mm wide, which is a fair bit larger than similar products on the market. Around the airflow ring is some additional width as well, since it protrudes from the device slightly.
All of this makes it a little bulky and hefty. It is not overly cumbersome though; it simply feels weighty, which we found to be a nice sensation. It does not feel cheaply made, and it looks like the designers just made it as large as it needed to be to accommodate their features.
What You Get out of the Box
The Nautilus comes with everything you need to get started vaping, except for your e-liquid, of course. Let’s break down what exactly is in the box when you first open it.
The tank has a 1.6 ohm atomizer. While most tanks tend to be cylindrical, this one is shaped more like a bell. We already covered how large it is, but we just want to reiterate that it is impressively large, especially when you stack it up against its competition, which only holds about half the juice.
You also receive a replacement atomizer head. Those who use clearomizers probably know that the atomizer head is the first thing to go. This 1.8 ohm replacement can keep you vaping a little longer before you have to order replacements yourself.
The drip tip is made from tough stuff- stainless steel. It should last you for years.
The threaded cone is stainless, just like every other part of the Nautilus. The 510 eGo threading that this is fitted with makes it a suitable match for just about any clearomizer device or accessory out there.
The user manual is always appreciated, and the one included here will walk you through the entire process of using and cleaning your clearomizer.
Is it Worth the Money?
The Nautilus clearomizer retails for just under $40. That’s not going to break anybody’s bank, and this is a quality product through and through. And when you compare it to its competition, it blows a lot of them out of the water. We can’t say enough nice things about the large tank and the airflow adjuster. But there are a few more things we’d like to say about them anyway.
The tank, besides being impressively large, is also spill proof. Most of the tanks that the competitors use are much smaller and they recommend that you don’t fill them all the way. But the nautilus has solved the spillage problem, and now you will never have to worry about making a mess with your oil again. You can fill that bad boy up all the way and enjoy every ounce of liquid in a single session.
The airflow regulator lets you adjust how much air you are getting from the clearomizer. And it allows for several different adjustments. Every time you rotate the ring, it clicks a little bit, letting you know you are at the next setting.
Each time you change the airflow settings, you will experience changes in air pull resistance, vapor production and airiness. And the smaller you make the airflow opening, the warmer your vapor will become. Also, using a restricted airflow allows for better wicking you won’t have to maneuver your clearomizer around to get the work wet again or absorbing oils like it should be. It’s a nice, hassle-free system that allows for easy chain vaping.
The Nautilus has a lot of things going for it, but like any product, it is not without its drawbacks. We’ll breaks down the advantages and disadvantages for you.
- Large tank makes long vaping session a breeze
- Quality workmanship on every detail
- Airflow regulation is a revelation, and we love it
- The price is right
- Replacing the coils can be a pain, if only because the only place you can find them is from the manufacturer’s online store
This is far and away our favorite clearomizer we have tried. We have to recommend it.
