Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer Is it as good as they claim?

The Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer is one of a few clearomizers put out by Nautilus and arguably one of the best for newcomers to mechanical mod vaping. While it does have some problems that may make it less appealing for veterans and people who enjoy rebuilding every last little bit of their mod, its pros outweigh the cons and newcomers will probably feel very comfortable with this device. So what is the Aspire Nautilus actually like?

What You Get In your Aspire Nautilus

Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer-1The Aspire nautilus is a clearomizer tank; a device which contains your e-liquid as well as having a drip tip. It has a unique appearance as it has a bell shape and a glass tank and it’s one of the largest tanks around (for a stock coil) at 5mL. The device comes with the tank and two coil heads: 1.6 Ohms and 1.8. It al comes with a detachable drip tip so that you can change up which kind you want. The device also has a silicon ring which squeeze fits your device together, though you do need the coil head to make sure everything stays together. This particularly device is a 22mm device so it looks very nice on other 22mm devices to build your entire mod. It even fits on variable voltage and wattage devices!

Benefits of the Aspire Nautilus

Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer-2The Aspire Nautilus is, overall, very well built. First, it’s one of the only clearomizer out there with adjustable airflow and it’s very easy to use. All you have to do is twist the airflow ring and you can shift from tiny (.9mm) to small (1.1mm) to medium (1.4mm) to large (1.8mm) and furthermore, the ring ‘locks’ into place so you don’t have to worry about slippage. The efficient and easy way to adjust airflow means there is minimal gurgling or flooding and if you have pressure build-up from vaping at a tiny airflow, you simply move to a large airflow and let the pressure out.

The Nautilus is also relatively easy to pull apart and put back together, making it perfect for people just breaking into mechanical mods. It uses a silicon press lip to press fit into the glass tank and the drip tip and coil heads can be pulled out easily. It’s got a very nice appearance as the tank is glass and the rest is stainless steel (save for the lip) and it matches well with other devices.

Finally, the tank is fairly large with a 5mL capacity and no leakages! So you can vape for quite a while before needing to fill the tank. The vaping experience is consistent and of a high quality and you can get good flavor.

Problems with the Nautilus

As wonderful as it is for newcomers, it has problems. A big problem is the fact that you can’t take apart the coil head, so you can’t rebuild it. This will probably annoy any veterans who enjoy pulling every last piece apart and fiddling at will. Another thing is that you cannot vape over 10.5 watts. You get a great experience at 10 watts, but if you like vaping higher than that, you just cannot do it. The glass tank is reinforced with threading on the inside, so it’s not as fragile as it could be, but it’s still pretty breakable, so be careful not to sit on it or throw it around too much! This means it’s not much good for people who work a rough job, work outside or who are just careless or clumsy with their things. And finally, the price tag at $39.99 may seem a bit too much for something which is, at the bottom, mass-produced out of China.

Aspire Nautilus Clearomizer-3The Aspire Nautilus is a very good device. It has a unique appearance, consistent vaping and more importantly, adjustable airflow which is something most clearomizers simply don’t have. The fact that it cannot be completely pulled apart may be off-putting to veterans, but for people who are new to vaping, it may be just perfect. You can switch between a 1.6ohm and 1.8ohm coil head and you can switch out the drip tip and the device fits on all 22mm mechanical mods, including variable voltage and wattage devices, so you get quite a bit of choice, but for those who like to be able to change every last little thing, it may not be ideal. The other thing that you may want to keep in mind is that you may need to keep buying coil heads. Otherwise, this is a great device for newcomers or for people who don’t feel the need to fiddle too much and well worth trying. Enjoy!


** Update I ‘ve been using my nautilius for 2 weeks now and it always stops wicking and gives me burnt taste… I have to prime it like crazy then it goes for awhile then boom dry hits again **  So until they send me a new one. Maybe mine is defective? not sure yet but I ‘m really dissapointed in how it’s turned out. Since so many people love this tank


Been Vaping Electronic cigarettes for 2 years, current favorite is Vaporzone

    I have the same problem! Keep on getting dry hits/burnt taste. I would prime it take a few vapes and back to burnt taste. No matter how many replacement coils I tried did not help. It’s too bad, when it worked it was GREAT

  • Vince says:

    I had the same problem. If you separate the ends of the coils at the bottom of the coil itself it helps. I think that with them touching it causes the burn. It worked for me so far that way.

  • Alyssa says:

    I really like mine. My only issue is finding the right juice.

  • MIke says:

    Same issue with the wicking after a few pulls. Seems to be a widespread issue. I even separated the coil leads and it still happens

  • Tim says:

    We got these as a present for end of the year (work at – great gift. I kept getting the dry burnt taste and what we did was turn the airflow so it was blocked (not on any intake hole) and took a couple draws to prime it. Seems to work but sucks to have to keep doing that.
