Aspire Nautilus Mini Review

Aspire Nautilus Mini - Vapour Days Atomiser

Aspire have launched the Aspire Nautilus and a smaller version, the Aspire Nautilus Mini, which both ensure you have the best possible flavour from your electronic cigarette.

What Are the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini Atomisers?

The Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini Atomisers are among some of the most popular tanks sold by Aspire. These guys have made a permanent mark on the vaping world, raising the bar for all atomisers on the market. Both of these are mouth-to-lung devices with an extremely flexible airflow system and advanced coils that make for a smooth vaping experience.

From the start, these tanks were meant to be game-changers. Aspire engineers had originally asked the vaping community what “the perfect tank” is for them, and the responses became Aspire’s basis for building the Nautilus / Nautilus Mini.

What Are the Key Benefits of the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini Atomisers?

  • Significantly enhances the flavour of the liquid in your atomiser.
  • Has longer-lasting coils than a standard atomiser.
  • Creates a higher amount of vape for each puff.
  • Gives your vapour a smoother sensation.
  • Aspire is a great brand name because Aspire is well established in producing electronic cigarette items.

Who the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini Tank Will Suit?

  • Vapers requiring a better taste to their e-liquids.
  • Vapers who want their electronic cigarette to have a far superior taste.
  • Those who want to give themselves a stronger chance of enjoying their e-liquid and electronic cigarette.
  • Those who have tried and love certain e liquids which require a glass atomiser, such as Heisenberg or Blackjack.

How does the Airflow Control Work?

A trademark of the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini Tanks is their fine-tuned airflow control. Each tank has an airflow ring that lets you select from four airflow hole sizes: 0.9 mm, 1.1 mm, 1.4 mm, and 1.8 mm. With this ring, you can tweak the temperature and tightness of the airflow along with production.

How Often Will the Aspire Coils Need Replacing?

The coils inside the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini atomisers will eventually burn out, like all electronic cigarette coils. The frequency you will have to replace them depends on a variety of factors, and in particular how much you use your electronic cigarette. On a low setting a coil may last 4-8 weeks.

Which Coils Go in the Aspire Nautilus / Mini Atomisers?

The original Aspire Nautilus, which was released in 2014, used horizontal BDC (bottom dual coils) with silica wicks. However, the Aspire Mini as well as later versions of the Aspire Nautilus shifted to BVC (bottom vertical coils) with ceramic wicks. The difference between the two lies in their configuration. In BDC, two coils are perpendicular to each other without touching, while BVC only has one vertical coil.

BVC was created as an improvement on BDC, which is already top-notch. Aside from lasting longer, BVC also give a much cleaner taste of the e-liquid, bringing out its flavour potently and producing more . Conveniently, it’s compatible with both the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini tanks.

More recently the Nautilus 2S coils have been manufactured which allow sub ohm vaping, permitted that your battery enables sub ohm vaping. There are two ohms options for the Nautilus 2S coils, which also fit into the original Nautilus and Nautilus Mini tanks: 0.4ohms and 0.7ohms Mesh.

Which Ohm Coils Should I Buy?

The lower the ohms, the more heat will be created, providing you with more vapour, although it can also drain your battery quicker and dry hits are more likely. It also will require more replacement of e-liquid since more vapour is produced with each puff.

In contrast, the higher ohm coils effectively have the opposite effect. Less vapour is produced, it will drain your battery less, reduce your number of dry hits and requires less refilling of e-liquid.

How Do I Refill the Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini Atomisers?

The Aspire Nautilus / Aspire Nautilus Mini are both refilled from the bottom. After refilling, just make sure that the coil is secure, then screw the base back on.

Are There Any Accessories To Protect the Aspire Nautilus Mini Atomiser?

You can buy a hollowed tank for the Aspire Nautilus Mini tank which not only makes your Mini look even more attractive, but it provides additional protection too.

My Glass on my Aspire Nautilus / Mini Tank Has Smashed! Can I buy Replacement Glass?

Yes. Both the Aspire Nautilus and Aspire Nautilus Mini tanks have replacement glass available to buy.

How do I Choose Between the Aspire Nautilus and the Aspire Nautilus Mini?

That depends on your preferences. Both atomisers more or less provide the same great benefits. One major difference is that the Aspire Nautilus is a 5ml tank and the Aspire Nautilus Mini is 2ml, making it more discrete. Due to its increased size the Aspire Nautilus 5ml tank can occasionally leak, whereas the bung on the smaller Mini ensures it does not leak.

The original 2014 version of the Aspire Nautilus also uses a different coil system (BDC) from the later versions and the Aspire Nautilus Mini. These use BVC, which adds more flavour and extends coil life. However, both coil systems still have excellent performance.

Where Can I Buy the Aspire Nautilus and Aspire Nautilus Mini From?
