People tend to overlook things when it comes to products. For instance, when I was looking at the new Aspire Breeze online, I felt that there’s something to it. Since I was about to receive my review copy, I decided to look at it again. I didn’t find anything that looked odd, broken, or outright bizarre.
The device seemed to be okay, the materials were top-notch, and generally, there was nothing to worry about. To share my experience, I decided that it is my sworn duty to make a full-on Aspire Breeze review. As usual, we’ll be covering the good, the bad, and the surprising. Keep reading as we uncover the mysteries of this neat little device.
To kick things off, the Aspire Breeze vape AIO (all-in-one) device resembles its cousin brand-mate, the Gusto. In terms of size, they’re practically the same. Also, the Aspire Breeze is like the Eleaf iCare in terms of design. It’s a weird combination that somehow works, and works really well.
Right out of the box, you’ll notice that the device has a built-in 2ml tank with a side window and a chimney 0.6-ohm atomizer coil at the bottom. The Aspire Breeze kit is one of the better ones out there but it has one small flaw, which is the rounded bottom. A minor drawback that shouldn’t distract you from the main benefits this device has to offer.
There’s a lot to love here. Indeed, excluding the above-mentioned issue, the Aspire Breeze problems are small and can be overlooked as the device has dual draw capabilities, a pretty compact shell made of aluminum, and a 0.6-ohm coil packed. The company is known to produce innovative products, and this is perhaps their best effort to date.
Those who want to get the Aspire Breeze AIO will be treated to:
– One Aspire Breeze
– A USB charging cable
– Two Aspire Breeze 0.6ohm coils
– Bag of spare parts
– A warranty card
As soon as I opened the box, my thoughts were “The Aspire Breeze starter kit sure does know how to impress”. It’s a convenient little box and it marks all the requirements an all-in-one setup should have. The device itself is pretty light and has a great feel to it.
On the tip of the device you got the mouthpiece that is guarded by a plastic shield, and at the center, you got the firing button. Also, there is a metal plate wedged underneath the mouthpiece that is used to unscrew the device, making the maintenance process, wait for it… a breeze.
The device also comes with a little tool that is used to take out the tank. A clever idea to what essentially is a never-ending issue. The layout of buttons and indicators is pretty well done too. Moving on to the next part, the Aspire Breeze atomizer has a U-shaped airflow intake and works pretty well as the air enters a tiny airflow slot on the side, travels to the chimney, then goes up to the mouthpiece.
The built-in tank has a 2ml capacity and a red line to help you understand whether the device is overfilled. Also, you have a small LED light which will help you understand the Aspire Breeze charging state.
With all these neat little touches, the device looks pretty good, but the only problem is that there are two models that come with a different set of charging methods. If you plan on buying the Aspire Breeze, you might end up picking a version that comes without a dedicated charger. We advise you to keep an eye on what’s inside the box when you are browsing an online store.
How the Aspire Breeze Works
The all-in-one line of products are meant to be simple and thankfully, the Aspire Breeze passes the test flawlessly. The previously mentioned metal plate plays a vital role here as it allows for a seamless detachment of the chimney from the tank. A brilliant solution that will save you a ton of time in the future.
The coil can be slapped to the bottom of the chimney tube and the coil itself has a couple of wick holes (three to be precise) on the main body. We recommend you be careful as they will be dipped in e-juice in no time due to the way the whole apparatus is built.
Since this is Aspire we’re talking about, the tank is top-fill only. In our books, that’s not a bad thing whatsoever. You’ll need to use both hands to refill it and once you’re done doing so, just replace the atomizer, screw it, put back the mouthpiece, and you are good to go.
With all that in mind, we’ve decided not to bother with the Aspire Breeze troubleshooting section as the device can easily be reassembled and fixed in no time. In a way, it’s kinda foolproof.
Aspire Breeze AIO: The Vape
So far, we’ve covered the design, it’s time to tackle the vaping experience. Just like all vaping products, the Aspire Breeze AIO has three core elements that may or may not lead to a nice vaping session.
To start off, we have the awesome 650mAh battery. It’s not as big as some of you might have hoped, but I can assure you that Aspire Breeze battery life is top-notch. The second one is the 0.6-ohm coil, which is again, not much, but enough, and lastly, we have the 2 ml tank capacity.
During our testing, we used a 70/30 VG/PG mix, and frankly, we were more than satisfied. The puffs were huge, the taste was great, and it lasted for quite some time.
How the Aspire Breeze Stacks Up
To make things fair, we decided to compare the Aspire Breeze to its competitor, the Eleaf iCare Mini. They share a lot of characteristics, including the internal tank, drop-in atomizer, two methods of inhalation, and the side-viewing window.
The main competitor of Aspire Breeze is more suitable for mouth-to-lung vaping as the coils used in the Eleaf iCare are 1.1-ohm. It is also much smaller, coming in at 70 mm in height compared to the 90 mm found in the Aspire Breeze.
However, when it comes to battery life, the Aspire Breeze is the clear winner as it comes with a 650mAh pack, while the Eleaf sports has a mere 320mAh one. With having more battery life, the Aspire Breeze charging time is slightly longer, but it’s worth the wait.
Although the performance on the Eleaf is pretty good, we prefer the Aspire Breeze. With Eleaf, you’ll get throaty hits that somehow resemble traditional cigs, while the Breeze, on the other hand, tries to produce a direct-lung experience.
Suffice it to say, this is a much better option. The Aspire Breeze wins the match thanks to its mouth-to-lung capabilities and a better experience.
To Sum it All Up
Over the past years, Aspire made a lot of cool products. I myself am a huge fan of their Speeder line, and the Breeze is no different. It has a few issues, but they are minor at best. It’s a compact device that is designed with portability in mind.
The price tag isn’t that high and the included coils are top quality stuff. Thus, if you can deal with the rounded bottom, give it a shot as there’s a lot to love.
