Aspire Pegasus Intro

So Aspire, the company that makes the Nautilus, Atlantis and now Triton has been making some mods lately. They have already been coming out with various tube-style mods such as the CF Mod and the CF Maxx but recently they started making box mods too such as the ESP 30W. I have not tried that one but I think around the time it came out, 30W was already a little behind the curve with all these high-powered devices (50W and up) being released. That is why Aspire decided to kick it up a notch and release their brand new 70-Watt mod! Due to the overwhelming demand on forums, including the one on their own official website, Aspire also decided to include Temperature Control on the Pegasus. Today we are going to be taking a look at this new device and see what all the hype has been about. This thing looks beautiful, let’s find out how she vapes!

Notable Remarks

Aesthetics

These companies really need to stop making such attractive looking mods because this is starting to get a little out of hand. How many devices do we need? Probably only one or two, maybe three. But when that picture goes up on the web of that new piece of gear, we go vape-shit! I feel like we have reverted back to the days of being a little kid and walking through Toys ‘R Us. I used to love those little Tiger handheld games but my parents were smart enough to only get me one. Every week a new one would come out with a different character on it, different color, same crap game.

Anyways, this wasn’t meant to be a rant but in any event, great job Aspire on creating one of the nicest looking mods I have ever seen. It just looks cool, man. The Pegasus comes in three colors, brass chrome and slate, all of which have this brushed finish. Although considered a box mod, this device has its own unique shape. It does have a boxy design however, it also has a rounded portion where your hand primarily rests on. It almost feels like a gun in your hand. The screen is extremely bright and easy to read. Everything about this mod is heavy duty, with sheer elegance.

Performance

This has been my go-to mod for the last week or two and I have to say, it has been very reliable. I have used it with many atomizers without any problems. The Ohm reader seems to be working accurately and consistently. This item has been performing the way it is supposed to and I expect nothing less from Aspire. I have been getting great battery life out of this unit, especially if I stay closer to 30W for most of the day. If you go much higher than that, obviously the battery is not going to last as long, but if you always keep a freshly charged battery handy, you’re good to go!

Temperature Control

The Temperature Control on this mod works well with Ni200. I personally am not a fan of Nickel so I tried using it with Titanium but that did not go too well. Since there is no way of switching your heat coefficient (I am now spoiled by the Dicodes mod) the Pegasus tries to figure it out by itself. Unfortunately I was not able to get a satisfying vape with this device in Ti mode. I have also tried this device in Ni200 mode, which it performs beautifully, however I do not like the taste of Nickel. Honestly, I am not a fan of Titanium either so I will stick with my A1 Steak Sauce aka Kanthal A1.

Ease of Use

The Pegasus has a very simple and straight-forward design. It has a super-clicky fire button which also will lock and unlock your device by pressing it five times. Instead of up and down arrows, you have a wheel that spins to adjust your wattage/temperature. If you spin it fast, it will increase in 10-watt increments. The screen is super bright and the text is huge so reading this thing is never a problem. Temperature Control mode can be accessed by holding the power button for four seconds. Once it senses your TC coil, your wattage wheel now becomes your temperature dial. There is no option for switching between Ni and Ti and unfortunately it does not support Stainless steel. I am a bit surprised about this considering Aspire makes SS coils! To me this is an indication that they kinda slapped on the whole Temp Control feature at the last minute to move more units.

Likes

  • Brushed finish looks stunning
  • Reliable and solid construction
  • Easy and comfortable to hold and fire
  • Replaceable single 18650 battery
  • Charging dock is convenient to use
  • Battery door locks and feels durable
  • Temperature Control Mode
  • Good battery life
  • Simple and easy to use

Dislikes

  • No support for Stainless Steel coils
  • Heavy
  • Charging-dock sold separately

Update: Being that there is only one button on the Pegasus, make sure your wicks are completely saturated before holding it for three seconds to detect temp control coils. We also recommend starting at a very low wattage so that you do not burn your wicks.

Verdict

Overall Score – 8 out of 10

In summary, the Aspire Pegasus has been a pleasure to use over the last week or two. It has become my go-to mod lately despite the fact that it is pretty heavy. I’m sure there are mech mods that weigh even more and eventually you accept its heavy weight in exchange for its reliability. If you are looking for a nice, solid mod that can fire up to 70 watts for under $70 then I recommend looking into the Pegasus. (That’s like a dollar per watt!) If you want to vape with Nickel or Kanthal, I would highly recommend this mod, for any other type of Temperature Control wire, not so much.

    I really like the look of this mod, but if I had to buy all the mods that I think looks great I would be a poor man 🙂 as you said in the review the market is flooding with mods so hard to choose but to be honest in this wattage range I think I would go for the Istick 60w TC over this one even though the Pegasus wins on the look…
    Good review Dave

    • Thanks Henrik! I’m glad you enjoyed and I really appreciate the feedback! Yes, there are so many options out there but I have always been a fan of Aspire and love what they are about. This is an awesome mod for somebody who wants a solid piece and doesn’t mind the extra weight. It is very simple to use and reliable, definitely Aspire’s best mod so far.

    Hello,
    As always with these (vapors reviews), the review is useless. One major con of the pegasus is that when you install a new atomizer, in order for it to measure the resistance, you have to press the vaping (power) button for three seconds. And what it does is that it fire at high wattage and measures the resistance. When it does that, it burns the new atomizer. This is a major flaw, that you did not mention. Basically this thing burns every single atomizer you instsll on it before even you start vaping, and you say it is great mod!!

    • Thanks for your comment! You are right, this is a major con with the device and so I would make sure that your wick is completely saturated before you hold the fire button down for three seconds. I would also recommend starting out at a very low wattage so that you don’t burn out your coils. I will probably update this review very soon to make sure that people are aware of this situation.

      I am sorry that you do not find these reviews useful, My recommendation is to stop reading them and start doing your own reviews.

      Have a great day and vape on!

      -Dave

      You obviously need to learn to read directions because this mod has never once burned any atomizer I’ve ever connected to it. Your an idiot and need to learn to read directions before you talk trash! It CLEARLY STATES TO TURN THE PEGASUS DOWN TO 1 BEFORE INSTALLING A NEW ATOMIZER!!! Do yourself a favor and learn to read and just throw away your gaping utensils because your just to stupid to know how to properly use them! First off the mod it’s room temp controlled 2nd it’s made so that it won’t burn coils or atomizers when turned down to. 1 and if your an idiot (which you are) you are pry dry firing your could like a retard so of course your gonna f*ck them up! I’ve had mine for a year now and never once had a single issue, I’ll take my aspire Pegasus with a colito over any other mod any day and I’ve used many others and the Pegasus bliws them outta the water! I’m willing to bet you don’t have a single clue how to even use the machine properly and pry don’t even own one, your just on here talk in suit with nothing better to do like most worthless trolls

  • That Dude

    I have a Pegasus and I love it. It is my first box mod and I had no problems figuring out how to work all the ins and outs. With it being my first I don’t have anything to compare it to but I still believe that it is top notch for a 70 watt mod. I haven’t had the problem with it burning out atomizers that the previous person spoke of. I’ve used it with both Aspire Triton 1 & 2 as well as a Herakles tanks and I haven’t had a problem in the short time (just under a month) that I’ve owned it. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a box mod in this class.

    I use a Pegasus with a KT EMOW mega tank. Like me me said the high voltage sensing can burn out the coils. There is a way to avoid this. When changing tanks always lock the Pegasus first. (hit the fire button 5 times) When changing batteries always do the following. Do not lock the unit. Turn unit down to 1 watt press fire button a couple of times momentarily. Remove battery, Before inserting battery hold the fire button continue to hold fire button while closing battery door. Hold fire button until Aspire logo disappears from display and it shows 1 watt again. You can now let go of the fire button and set the wattage at whatever you use and it will function normally. I use 1.8 Ohm dual coils and run them at 10 watts.
