Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank
New from Aspire, the curvy and colourful Nautilus 2 tank. The latest mouth to lung tank in the Nautilus range. The Nautilus to uses a 1.9Ohm BVC coil, coupled with the bottom airflow adjuster, helping you to find tune your vaping needs. Shorter chimney minimises airflow travel and provides a better flavour experience, bringing the best out of your premium e-juice. Also being able to use coils from other Aspire Nautilus tanks further enhances your ability to customise your vaping experience.
The Nautilus 2 is basically a very good 2ml, sub Ohm, top filling, mouth to lung tank and is fully TPD compliant.
The Nautilus 2 is best used with the new BVC coils of which there are 2 available. The pre-installed 0.7Ohm (18-23Watt) and the 1.8Ohm (10-13Watt/4.2-5.0Volt)
Box contents: 1 x Nautilus 2 tank, 1 x pre-installed 0.7Ohm coil, 1 x 1.8Ohm coil, 1 x extra glass tube, 8 x spare O rings, 1 x user manual, 1 x warning card, 1 x extra drip tip.
The Aspire Nautilus 2 tank is one of my favourite mouth to lung tanks. Not just because of its sleek design but also its ease of use and the flavour you get from it.
I first came across this tank on the Aspire Zelos kit. The tank is clearly designed to sit neatly on the Zelos mod and is rounded and coloured to fit perfectly on this mod. The only downside to the design is that I am not so sure it would look so good sitting atop another mod. That aside it has a standard 510 connection so will sit in top of most variable mods on the market today.
Settings And Flavour
There are two coils available but for the review I used the pre-installed 0.7Ohm coil. This Nautilus coil is rated between 18-23Watts. First of all I tried it at various wattage settings, starting at 18Watts and working upwards. I found that at 18Watts the vape was a little on the cool side, but at 23Watts there was a slight burning taste. So I settled on 20Watts as my sweet spot. To be honest across the range I did not really get an increase or decrease in the amount of flavour from the tank, I was using a 70/30 e-liquid and the flavour was fairly consistent. For an MTL tank it produces quite a lot of vapour, not exactly a cloud caser but still pretty good.
Ease Of Use
This is a top filling tank. In order to fill it you have to remove the entire outer metal casing. This simply unscrews though I find that you have to take the tank off the mod to do this. This is because it is too fiddly gripping the base of the tank to unscrew the top while it is screwed into the mod, I find this a little annoying as I don't want to have to take the tank off to fill it up, but this really is a niggle rather than a complaint. Once the top is off you simply pour your e-liquid down the side and then screw the top back on, so in that sense it is easy just wish I didn't have to remove the tank from the mod. Changing the coil is exactly the same except you then remove the glass as well, fit the new coil and put it all back together again. Just beware the only way to replace the coil is to do it empty, so if you have just filled it up you may lose your e-liquid unless you can pour it back into the bottle.
Apart from a couple of niggles in terms of ease of use, this is one of the best and most stylish MTL tanks on the market at the moment. The flavour is great for an MTL tank and at just under £25.00 is not the most expensive tank on the market either, so all things considered this is a great value for money tank.
