5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd bought this years ago., 12 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, what an awesome bit of kit!

Bought to assist with a room-conversion job, it was the start of my high-quality tools collection. I've since added a cordless drill/driver and an impact driver, both from the XR range, so the batteries are interchangeable. And just the other day I saw that the XR torch was on special, so I grabbed that too :).

The tool itself... absolutely essential for those fiddly, awkward jobs, like trimming ceiling cornices. It's not exactly lightweight, but is nicely balanced, and the heft helps prevent it skittering out of control too easily. Depending on what you're working on, a steady hand is still needed. I recommend having a few practice runs on scrap pieces before attacking "live" work.

Umm... kind of like a comedy, but without the funny parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping me cool while it lights up my life., 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I now have four of these installed, and may still grab another for the kitchen.

Relatively straightforward to install if you're comfortable and competent working safely with household wiring. Do ensure when you're putting it together that all the screws are firmly seated, otherwise it'll rattle!

It moves a reasonable volume of air around, even on the lower settings, without making too much noise (see note above). Even at full speed, it doesn't prevent TV-watching.

Note that the light fitting requires a standard ES screw bulb - don't get one of the mega-long super-bright folded-tube ones, as the lampshade is a little shallow. Anything about the same length as a standard old-style bulb, or even a little longer, will be fine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really expected better, as Aspire claim to have taken all the lessons learned from their experience with and feedback from the two previous (very good) Nautilus tanks, and made an even better one.

There are some interesting features, to be sure: the easy top-fill is very welcome, and the U-bend coil sounds like the perfect way to deliver more flavour. Unfortunately, it just doesn't perform. The taste is quite muted with both of my go-to juices (TMax's Sands of Time and Snake Oil), and there is a tendency to vacuum-lock, causing dry hits if you don't partially unscrew the top periodically to equalise the pressure; not as bad as with some other tanks, but still annoying.

Note that your mileage may vary! This is MY experience with MY choice of juice.

I do like the form-factor and top-fill convenience, and the availability of an extender kit (not yet on Amazon, but coming soon I'm sure) to increase the juice capacity to a reasonable volume is welcome.

It's not a total loss for me, though. It seems to handle the ClearSteam "smokeless" juice OK. So filled with that, and mated with my Curve2 Mini battery, it's a pretty good stealth-vape kit - absolutely tiny, handy for those times when you really shouldn't, but need a quick hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it when cheap & simple just works., 15 Jun. 2016

What a pleasure! Just connect inline with your PSU and away you go. Although you may want to crack it open and change the default duration (about 20 seconds in my case) to the maximum 10-20 minutes.

I've purchased three now, and couldn't be happier.

Somebody else noted that the mounting holes are tiny, and I agree. So small as to be useless, unless you're fixing to soft wood with little pins. But they weigh almost nothing, so a dab of glue or mounting tape should do the trick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good home for a Pi camera setup., 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just to be clear - I'm not using this as intended. I opened it up, ripped the guts out, modified the front-facing plate, and mounted a Raspberry Pi and camera, with some home-brew code, to use as a motion-detecting, picture-taking bird-watching camera. Since I don't have time to sit around all day watching the bird-feeder, this kit now does it for me. Or will do, as soon as I get around to finishing off the project and actually installing it. I love that it's waterproof, too!

I've used these in a Triton, a Nautilus (full-sized) and a Nautilus Mini. Superb performers for MTL vapers, last almost twice as long as the regular coils. Honestly, I couldn't tell you if the flavour is any better, but for the cost-saving alone they're worth switching to.

Really not my cup of tea, although others may like it. Some interesting photography. An odd mix of background music and SFX, which I found quite jarring at times.

As for the story itself? Four "episodes" later... there isn't one. What little premise exists could have been explained in under a minute.

Obviously a lot of work has gone into this, and it's quite polished... just not at all entertaining for me. YMMV.
