If you vape, then you have probably owned a Nautilus at some point, whether it be the mini or the original. It was literally a game-changer in the vape industry. It was the first tank that made me realize how great vaping has become. Life was good with my Vivi Nova, or so I thought. Then I tried some Kilo Cereal Milk in a Nautilus Mini. I was hooked from that day on. It was one of those moments where you tell the salesperson, “ring me up”, before you ask the price.
But enough about my experience, I am writing this to talk about the brand new Nautilus X! Yes that is the name of a US Spacecraft, but who cares? It’s the vape industry, nothing is off-limits.
One of the downfalls of the Nautilus series, in my opinion, was the rubber insulator on the bottom hardware. It was non-removable so you couldn’t really take it out to clean like an o-ring. The result was you could never get the previous flavor out, even after putting in a fresh coil. I really hope they have improved this and just went with a standard o-ring insulator but it is hard to tell from the images.
The coils are 1.5 ohms, so I am guessing that it will cater to mouth-to-lung enthusiasts. I am almost surprised they didn’t try and fit eight fused claptons in it, but rather than following the trends, these guys are setting new ones. This is what I’ve always loved about Aspire. I hope this badboy will have a bit more airflow than the original Nautilus, which made a whistling noise even on the highest setting, and the Nautilus Mini. (Just sayin’.)
This tank will also feature “U-Tech”. No that is not a Technical University, it is a new type of coil-technology. From the diagram, there appears to be top-airflow that travels down through one vertical coil, then passes up through the other coil in a U-formation. This is supposed to enhance the flavor, I’m not sure exactly how, but we shall find out. According to Aspire’s website, this technology will soon become the future of micro tanks. We have all heard many companies make bold claims such as that, but this is Aspire we are talking about. They have already changed the game once before with the Nautilus and the Nautilus Mini, not to mention one of the first sub ohm tanks. Who’s to say they can’t do it again?
The Nautilus X will be available in silver, black, gold and a limited edition rainbow. If that is not enough, you will also be able to purchase a spare glass tank that is frosted! I wouldn’t even mind walking around the metallic rainbow one with some frosted glass! Last but not least, I should mention that this device has an extremely low profile, is 22mm in diameter and holds about 2mL of e-liquid, which is even less than the Mini. With the release of the new Pro Tank 4, and now this, it seems like 2014 is making a comeback in a new way.
We would love to hear your thoughts on the Nautilus X. Feel free to share in the comments!
