ASPIRE NAUTILUS MINI REPLACEMENT METAL TANK
ASPIRE NAUTILUS MINI REPLACEMENT METAL TANK
Offered by Smoke Purer
Price: £11.03

4.0 out of 5 stars Prefer the look albeit an odd window cut-out shape., 22 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I think the steel/glass combo of the original looks a little too medical like, of course a personal view, so I bought one of these to beautify my Nautilus.
I think it looks a lot better but...whoever designed the cut-out window must have been having a laugh, take a look at the shape and tell me my imagination isn't warped lol. Still that aside I still prefer the look to the glass.
There is a slight problem and I don't know if it's just down to my one but it is really hard to screw off the base, it gets really tight, in fact so tight I need to use my shirt as a grip to unscrew it. It's not so much of a problem as it does unscrew with the aid of my shirt but more of an observation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Vape, 22 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a great product, the Nautilus (with the new BVC coils) is possibly the best reviewed tank in it's class.
I like the 1600mah battery as these types of set-ups (as opposed to the cheap cartomisers) use more energy and the 1600 battery lasts me all day.
Bit disappointed that there's not a mains charger and just a USB charger but I've noticed Nautilus themselves just supply batteries without any charger at all.
Service from SmokePurer couldn't be faulted, arrived in 1 x day. They has also sent me the larger tank in error; when queried I got a reply literally within the hour letting me know the 'mini' replacement was being sent that day and I received it the following day, now that's what I call a first class supplier.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Like It!, 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect for me, lightweight and just adds enough padding to give 13.3in Macbook some protection (note this is not a hard case, just lightly padded). I chose this as I much prefer a portrait bag to a landscape one as it hangs over shoulder onto back a lot better than a landscape one.
Quality wise it seems pretty good but too early to tell as just had it for a week.
Took ages for me to find this on Amazon as it seems a simple lightweight bag with a handle and shoulder strap are quite rare!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Big Tank, 17 Oct 2014
Aesthetics-wise it's big, also having the pyrex glass and stainless combo I've had comments from it looks like a shisha bong to a Victorian medical instrument. I have to agree and I do get some odd looks when puffing in public; however some people of course like this 'eccentric' look, a chap at work went straight out and bought one with a big 1600mah battery after seeing mine. I've also purchased the mini version due to this fact and it's a little more publicly acceptable. Of course this is down to personal preferences but on the practical side of things it takes a whopping 5ml which for me is a days worth of vaping.

Tip. Ensure you screw the coil into the base (I screwed it into the cylinder when I got it, not having read the instructions) and it worked..but then leaked!

So vape-wise, it gives a lot; and possibly this tank gets the best online reviews and feedback of any tank in its class. I find though every cartomiser has quite different characteristics and gives your juice quite a different dimension depending on what you're using. For me I prefer a thicker 'vape' with short pulls, with this one I find I'm taking longer pulls as the vape seems quite fine and this has caused a bit of a soar tongue and throat, but I think this may just take some adjustment to my vaping style as I've been using a Justfog 1453 for a long time which has a very different taste and vape characteristics. I'm swapping between the two as they both have things I like about them.

Coil-wise I use the latest BVC ones (you get 2 with it and a pack of 5 costs around £10). There are 2 x variations AFAIK being 1.6Ohm and 1.8Ohm. I'm told (but not personally confirmed) that the 1.6 version is really for the non VV (variable voltage) batteries that commonly fire at 3.7v and the 1.8 version is the one you should get if you use a VV battery. Personally I have tried both coils on a VV battery and a FV battery and couldn't tell much if any difference. I'm sure the connoisseurs out there might be able to tell the difference.

Maintenance-wise, it's no hassle if you're familiar with this type of tank, if you're new to them there might be some small learning curve

I hope that helps.

Was not 'SIM free' and after a lot of wasted time found out it was locked to Vodafone and with no way to unlock it other than to send off and get unlocked for £30. Needless to say returned for full refund.

Great product but was well overcharged as I realise now that this was the last of this model and could have got a more recent model for less.

2.0 out of 5 stars 5m cables for half this price I expected a better quality with this, 8 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The end that plugged into my tablet split in two when removing from device after just a few weeks and I'm not a heavy handed type. Left part of the plug in tablet that needed careful removal with pliers. Considering you can get 2.5m cables for half this price I expected a better quality with this. I will say though whilst it was in one piece it performed well.
