Aspire Cleito Review

Aspire Cleito Intro

Today we review the Aspire Cleito sub ohm tank. The Cleito is an affordable sub ohm tank that costs around $19. It features two Kanthal Clapton coils (0.2 and 0.4ohm). The tank is made up of extremely few parts and is very lightweight. The coils are a completely new design and are not compatible with any of the older Aspire sub ohm tanks.

We see how the Aspire Cleito vapes below:

Notable Remarks

Vaping the Cleito 0.4ohm Coil

Aspire Cleito 0.4 Clapton Coil
Aspire Cleito 0.4 Clapton Coil

The 0.4ohm Clapton Cleito coil was my favourite of the two that came with the kit. I was getting burnt hits above 55W, so I’d recommend staying below that. My preferred range was between 40-45W. The flavor and clouds were fantastic!

Vaping the Cleito 0.2ohm Coil

Aspire Cleito 0.4/0.2 Clapton Coils
Aspire Cleito 0.4/0.2 Clapton Coils

The 0.2ohm vaped well at around 60-65W. For my personal preference the 0.2ohm coil wasn’t for me. It got a lot hotter (like real hot) than the 0.4ohm coil and I preferred the flavor on the 0.4ohm coil at a lower wattage. The ramp up time on the 0.2ohm coil head was also considerably longer than on the 0.4ohm coil.

Lightweight and Short

The Aspire Cleito is an extremely lightweight sub ohm tank and measures 22mm in diameter. It is also quite short and a lot shorter than the previous Aspire sub ohm tanks.

Fantastic Flavor

The flavor on the 0.4ohm Clapton kanthal coil head was fantastic. Given this tank costs a fraction of of what the other top tanks cost, we were very surprised (in a good way)! Honestly, the flavor is up there with tanks like the Crown, Herakles Plus and Rafale – wow!

Cheap

This Cleito tank can be secured for around $17.99 – $22.95 online. This makes it around half the cost of some other sub ohm tanks. You still get a spare Pyrex glass, as well as two Kanthal coils with the Cleito kit. The tank whilst feeling very light and simply put together, doesn’t necessarily feel cheaply made. Coil replacements cost around $20 for 5 pieces which isn’t as cheap as other coils, but isn’t too bad. I cannot comment on the coil longevity yet, but if you have any experience with having used them over a longer period, please do contribute in the comments section. Your feedback is always much appreciated!

Big Airflow & Massive Clouds

Aspire Cleito Airflow
Aspire Cleito Airflow

The air flow on the Aspire Cleito is pretty massive. It is airier than on the Herakles Plus for instance and is one of the widest air flows we have come across. This combined with those Clapton coils, ensures MASSIVE clouds! If you enjoy clouds and flavor, you won’t be disappointed by the Aspire Cleito.

Easy Top Fill

The top fill is extremely easy to use and there is plenty of space for re-filling.

Dislikes

Top Cap Heat

The Cleito gets pretty hot, especially on the 0.2ohm Clapton coil at higher wattages. The top cap, as it’s directly connected to the coil, gets very hot, so be sure to use one of the silicon “chuffs” provided by Aspire that come in different colors.

Can’t Replace Coils without Emptying the Tank

The coils are at the same time also the chimney of the Cleito tank. Whilst this keeps the number of parts in the tank down to a minimum, it does mean that you need to empty the tank out before changing a coil.

Can’t Use Your Own Drip-Tip

You can kind of use your own 510 drip tip on the Cleito, but it doesn’t fit well and just looks really weird. We would recommend sticking with the installed Aspire delrin drip-tip.

Tank Capacity Only 3.5ml

Aspire Cleito Aesthetics
Aspire Cleito Aesthetics

The Aspire Cleito Clapton coils eat e-juice and produce huge clouds. This means the 3.5ml tank will not last you very long! The top fill is however easy to use, which makes re-filling a doddle.

Verdict

If you are looking for a cheap sub ohm tank, that chucks clouds and has fantastic flavor (up there with the Uwell Crown and Herakles Plus), then buy the Aspire Cleito! It won’t disappoint you and is an absolute beast of tank for just $19.

Completely agree with your review, bought one last week. The specifications say 5ml, pretty sure its a typo since you got it right further down.

We were using the Coolfire IV Plus for the Cleito review, it was a perfect match, especially with the black on black.

Here is our review on it: http://vaping360.com/innokin-coolfire-iv-plus-review/

Hey guys, We have this for about 2 weeks now, Both color, I’d agree 0.4 ohms is way better, flavors, cloud is there! doesnt take to long to break in, and we still on same coil since Monday feb 1st, the coils/cotton not even dark yet, Flavors still the SAME!! We r impressed with this tank for this price!

I just changed out the .4 coil to try the .2 after about 3-4 weeks with no flavor change. This is an impressive tank, I love it on my joytech cuboid

I love this tank, but getting alot of leaking around the airflow. Help!

Mate just to let you know a solution that has worked for me. Once the top is unscrewed and ready to be filled, close the air flows. Then fill the tank screw the top back on whilst the airflow is still closed. Once this is done turn the tank upside down and then open the airflow and place the tank on the mod. This will prevent any leaking, the leaks are caused through suction and a vacuum being created. Since Iv done this it hasn’t leaked once. Might just work for you too.

Use the vape bands on the area that the tank meets the metal.

Double check to see if your coil is seated properly. When you change it, use a cotton swab or a piece of tissue and make sure Theirs no juice hiding in the bottom before you install a new coil.

Another thing to check are the threads on the replacement coil. A recent pack of coils I purchased weren’t threading all the way down flush, so the gaskets weren’t making a tight seal. A light application of fine grit sandpaper on the bottom coil threads did the trick.

Thanks. Done all that. Ok for a day or two then leaks again. I just strip it down and clean it every day.

I find sometimes it is just the coil being defective. Sometimes you just need to throw a new one in, to see if that fixes the issue? This happened to my TFV4 and woke up in the morning to see a full 5ml leaked out. I checked the coil and it was screwed in place fine, and just chucked the coil and installed a new one, which fixed the issue. I know it has been 15 days since you posted, but did you end up getting the leaking figured out?

Hi Matt,

Next time you clean, or replace the coil, check and see if all the seals are in good shape.
Also if you like a tight draw, it could be that you’re applying too much vacuum and sucking excess liquid into the inner chamber.
Finally, make sure your liquid is a high VG mix, firstly it’s better for sub ohm vaping, and secondly it’s thickness prevents it from over saturating the coil.
Hope this helps with your leaking.

Cheers,
Nathan

Agree with Nathan these tips really help to get less leaking maybe stop it completely .. but i like to add another tip : never make strong moving to your tank or turn it upside down strongly and for a long time while juice is full or shake the tank hard as it helps to get the juice in the inner chamber . other tip always close the airflow when u r not using the tank
