Aspire has long been known for the Nautilus and Nautilus Mini tank, both still very popular for Mouth to Lung users, and seeks to fill the current generation of technology catered to the same crowds. The Nautilus 2 has been restructured to bring it up-to-date for current vaping technology, while keeping its trademark “Mouth-to-Lung vaping” as solid as before. Packaged inside the box is: A limited warranty card, User Manual, Nautilus 2 Tank with a 1.8 ohm BVC coil pre-installed, replacement 0.7 ohm BVC coil, replacement section of Pyrex glass, eight spare o-rings for the seals on the tank, and an extra drip tip. Aspire has covered the user with enough spare parts to handle virtually any situation that may arise while vaping.
The Nautilus 2 tank keeps the Mouth to Lung foundation that the Nautilus series is known for. At the forefront, while innovating the tank design and taking it to a higher level, the Aspire Nautilus 2 is something extraordinary. The food grade Stainless Steel and Pyrex glass construction ensure quality, stability, and safety. Clocking in at only 55mm tall by 22mm wide, the Nautilus 2 appears to be significantly smaller than many tanks on the market today; however, do not let the small stature fool you, as this device is packed with features and designed to facilitate ease of use while promoting superb quality. The Nautilus 2 holds 2mL of juice within the replaceable Pyrex Glass tube and features a wonderful top-filling system that’s easy and intuitive to fill. The form, function, and e-juice capacity make this tank TPD compliant, ensuring all users have access to this superb Mouth-to-Lung tank. The first step to filling the Nautilus 2 is to grab the top cap and twist in a counterclockwise direction. The top piece of the Nautilus will begin to unscrew from the threads on the top of the coil, and once released, the entire metal shielding of the tank will be removable. With the top cap removed, you’ll have base of the tank with the Pyrex Tube and Atomizer attached. Simply fill the tank with your favorite e-juice and then return the top cap to the device and screw it back down in a clockwise motion. This feature of the tank also allows quick and easy replacement of the Pyrex Glass tube if the previous glass shatters or needs to be replaced. The base of the Nautilus 2 holds the airflow adjustment ring and is equipped with five airflow holes of varied sizes. Adjusting the draw strength with the airflow ring is as simple as grabbing the ring and turning it to the side.
This small feature enables the user to accurately fine-tune their vaping experience, and is capable of providing a restricted, flavor-filled vape for the tighter “Mouth-to-Lung” vaping style, or a wide-open and airy vape for those that enjoy blowing billowing clouds. The Nautilus 2 ushered in some new updates to the BVC coils as well, though the tank is still compatible with all previous versions of the original Nautilus BVC series of coils. Included with the tank is the preinstalled 1.8 ohm BVC atomizer head that supports a best use wattage between 10-14W, as well as the 0.7 ohm BVC coil head that’s designed for best use between 18- 23W. The 1.8 ohm BVC coil has been designed to maximize flavor while lowering juice consumption and extending the coil’s overall lifespan. The replacement 0.7 ohm BVC atomizer head caters to the sub-ohm crowd and provides the rare Mouth-to-Lung experience for those that are looking for a remarkable MTL experience at sub-ohm levels. The BVC coil assembly features threading on the top and bottom of the tank, and the BVC atomizer head provides a large part of the tank’s chimney, thus reducing the time it takes for the vapor to reach the users’ lungs and increasing the tanks overall flavor production. The removable drip tip on top of the tank is designed with a lower profile to offer a tank that is capable of delivering moderate vapor production while producing maximum flavor with every puff. It is recommended with both of these atomizer heads to use a 50/50 ratio of VG/PG or a 70/30 blend. Designed for a smooth Mouth-to-Lung hits, the Nautilus 2 functions at its absolute best when used with thinner blends of e-liquids that aren’t mixed with large amounts of VG. However, thicker e-liquids that contain max VG or heavy VG can be used, although heavier VG e-liquids will shorten the coil’s lifespan. The Nautilus 2 comes in two different varieties, Stainless Steel and Anodized Aluminum. The Stainless Steel is bright and polished with a matching drip tip. The Anodized Aluminum comes in three different colors: Red, Black (Included is a matching Black drip tip), and Gray. The striking design and color schemes Aspire has given to the sleek and small structured Nautilus 2 leave them glowing with function and form. Aspire seeks to bring variety to the Mouth-to-Lung market with the Nautilus 2 tank and has done a tremendous job creating this fantastic work of art. This tank holds a variety of resistance ranges with the BVC Coils Aspire has put out. The Nautilus 2 tank is one of the best performing tanks with options for both Pro and Sub ohm Mouth to Lung vaping.

Welcome to Misthub's Guide to Variable Voltage / Variable Wattage Mods. While these devices were once rare and very costly, the rapid evolution of vaping has made these devices quite popular, widely available and very affordable. Today we will discuss what is a variable voltage / variable wattage device, how they work, and the various advantages and disadvantages of these devices. What Is A VV/VW Mod? A VV/VW Mod at it's simplest is a battery powered vaping device that uses circuitry to regulate its output power and allows adjustment of it's output power in two ways: 1. By adjusting the voltage. 2. By adjusting the wattage. Additionally these devices employ protection circuitry to provide a wide variety of safety features to protect the user and/or prevent damage to the device itself. The safety features of VV/VW Mods make them a fantastic device for new and veteran vapers alike. Today, there is a massive selection of these types of these devices. Their maximum output power and other features are just as varied. With so many choices in devices it's good to know they are all quite similar internally. These devices are controlled by a micro processor which is what allows for and controls the variable settings, safety features, and secondary features like displaying battery life, atomizer resistance, etc. The only significant internal differences are the microprocessor itself, whether it uses replaceable or internal batteries, and if those batteries are in a parallel or a series circuit. Battery placement determines if... Learn more
Overview of Ohms Law and Vape Safety Mechanical mods, high wattage regulated mods, rebuild-able dripping atomizers and rebuild-able tank atomizers are becoming extremely popular. Most experienced vapers quickly realize the cost savings of rebuilding and make simple RDA's / RBA's and RTA's part of their daily life. It's no surprise - for the cost of a pack of coils you could buy a year supply of kanthal wire and organic cotton - the building blocks of most vape coils built today. Additionally, self build coils in RDA's tend to produce a lot more vapor and superb flavor over traditional coils, but this post is not about that. This post is about vaping safely and what that means. Let's face it, a metal tube with a high voltage battery or a high wattage (think 150W) box mod with two is nothing to smirk at. You are putting that thing right next to your eyes, mouth and face and firing (activating) it. You WANT to be safe! Before building your first coil, it is highly recommended to buy an ohms meter. This is a device that will tell you the resistance of the coils on your atomizer. Armed with resistance (Ω) you will be able to easily figure out if your setup is safe. But first, what exactly is "safety" when it comes to mods and e-cigs? Easy, the batteries used today for most mechanical and box mods are either 18650 or 26650 series batteries. These batteries vary in Amps - amps... Learn more
Introduction to Variable Voltage vs. Variable Wattage for E-cigs There is a lot of confusion between variable voltage vs. variable wattage for e-cigs. Both variable voltage and variable wattage are technologies that control the power output delivered to your e-juice delivery device like atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer. If you are unfamiliar with different types of e-liquid delivery devices be sure to check out our Tutorial: Atomizer vs. Cartomizer vs. Clearomizer. Some people prefer variable voltage to variable wattage, and in most cases it boils down to skill level and the level of control you want when vaping. Although, variable voltage and variable wattage control power output of your battery, they achieve the same result in a different way. The choice between variable voltage and variable wattage comes into play if your tend to switch between different types, brands and models of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearmizers. As you know from our previous tutorials, different type, brands, and models come with different resistance levels of coils. To achieve desired power output while using a variable voltage battery you will need to know the resistance level of your e-juice delivery device. Using the Vaping Power Chart and the resistance level (in Ohms) you will need to cross-reference or calculate appropriate voltage to achieve desired power output or wattage. With variable wattage feature resistance level of a coil is calculated automatically by a microprocessor of electronic cigarette. There is no need to use Vaping Power Chart or do calculations by hand. However, it is... Learn more
Significance of Variable Voltage and Vaping Power Chart Modern electronic cigarettes come with many features and one of these features is variable voltage. Not every e-cigarette comes with option of variable voltage, some already come with preconfigured constant power output. These types of e-cigarette are simple to use and more suitable for beginners. They deliver predesigned power to model specific atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer. However, more advance users prefer an option of variable voltage which allows them to control power output to achieve ideal vapor production. Them main reason why you would choose a variable voltage electronic cigarette over constant power e-cigarette, is the variety of different types and brands of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearomizers on the market today. If you are unfamiliar with different types of e-juice delivery devices be sure to check out our Tutorial: Atomizer vs. Cartomizer vs. Clearomizer. Different types and brands of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearomizers all have one thing in common, they all have some type of heating coil which converts power delivered by your batter to heat. The heating coil can have different resistence level, which simply means that it requires different power levels to achieve ideal heating temperature. Consequently, variable voltage option allows you to set ideal power output depending on brand and model of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearomizers you are using. It is important to note that highest voltage is usually not ideal power setting and can lead to burning of e-juice or even risk of coil burnout. Therefore, always pay... Learn more
What is Sub-Ohm Vaping? What is sub-ohm vaping? Simply put it is vaping on a device whose atomizer coils have a resistance of less than one ohm. The reason some advanced vapers “sub-ohm” is to increase the power output of fixed voltage devices like mechanical vape mods and non-variable regulated devices to create more vapor or flavor. Although it might sound simple it's actually a complex and often controversial topic within the vaping community. The goal of this guide is to make sure you have accurate information so you can decide if sub-ohm vaping is right for you. How Does Sub-Ohm Vaping Work? All mechanical mods, VV/VW regulated mods and e-cigarettes are electrical devices powered by a battery. Sub-ohm vaping utilizes the principles of Ohm's and Joule’s laws of electricity. For our purposes this means, a non-variable voltage source like for instance the battery in a mechanical vape mod will increase the overall power output (wattage) of your device when you decrease the resistance (ohms) of your coils. It is absolutely crucial that sub-ohm vaping must be done safely. As you decrease your resistance you will increase the amperage your device uses to supply the current needed. This increases the strain on the battery and also increases heat that the battery and coils generate. For this reason you must ensure that you never exceed the amperage limit of your battery or it could fail causing possible fire or explosion. Is Sub-Ohm Vaping Dangerous? Is sub-ohm vaping dangerous? The honest... Learn more
Welcome to Misthub’s Guide to different wires for building coils. Here we will discuss the differences between NiChrome, Ni-200, Titanium, Kanthal and Stainless Steel. Although these wires will all serve the same purpose, there are some fundamental differences that place them worlds apart. It is because of this that we’re going to dive deep into the science of these different types of wire and help you decide which wire will be best for you and your build. Nickel-Chromium Vape Wire NiChrome was the metal that started it all. It became well known and widely used back in 1905 when scientists realized it possessed anti-oxidizing properties, allowing the metal to function at high heats without being damaged through oxidation. NiChrome is a resistance wire that is popularly used in most electric heating elements, hot-wire foam cutters as well as household appliances and tools. Due to its ability to rapidly heat quickly with minimal ramp-up time, NiChrome has become the wire of choice for a vast majority of e-cigarette coils that come out of China as well as the preferred wire for cloud-chasing builds. When compared to Kanthal, NiChrome has a lower melting temperature as well as a lower maximum operating temperature. Simply put, this means that the life expectancy of a NiChrome coil will typically be shorter than that of a Kanthal coil. Worry not, these temperatures are negligible as most devices will not exceed the melting point of either metal. In comparison, they both support similar features despite NiChrome... Learn more
Welcome to MistHub's Guide to Tank Maintenance and Troubleshooting. Here we will discuss how to perform routine maintenance on your tank atomizers to keep them functioning in top condition. We will also discuss some common problems and their solutions. First, let’s take a look at how to properly use a brand new tank or a new coil you just installed in your tank. New Tank / New Coils Whenever you install a new coil you will want to make sure that you prime it before using it. Priming a coil will ensure that the wick in it is saturated with e-juice prior to its first use. This substantially lowers the possibility of burning your wick or damaging your coil. To prime your coil you will want to place 4-5 drops of e-juice directly into the coil head. Install the coil head by threading it into the tank’s base. You will then fill and assemble your tank. For best results you should wait 5-10 minutes before its first use. If you are in a hurry and cannot wait the 5-10 minutes you should at least wait 1-2 minutes, close the airflow and take several deep pulls without firing your device. You should be able to then re-open the airflow and use the tank normally without issue. When To Change Coils When exactly to change your coil heads is not quite as cut and dry because of the wide variety of different coil heads and atomizers available. Different coil... Learn more
Atomizers: Disposable, Replaceable or Rebuildable. Which Atomizer Type Is Right For You? Today there is an ever increasing selection of different types of atomizers available to the vaping community. This wide selection allows for greater customization of your individual vaping experience. Since each individual atomizer is different from the next you should consider the various advantages and disadvantages of each in order to decide which is right for you. One of the biggest questions someone needs to ask themselves before selecting a new atomizer is whether you prefer an atomizer that is disposable or one that uses replaceable coils or rebuildable coils. Here we will try help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each so you can choose the atomizer that is right for you. Disposable Atomizers Disposable atomizers like the Innokin iClear 10 Clearomizer are usually what most people new to vaping will have their first experiences with. Commonly included with most starter kits these type of atomizers are usually inexpensive and widely available. Most often disposable atomizers are used until they are hard to draw air though or until they start to gurgle signaling it is time to replace the entire atomizer. These atomizers are inexpensive making them easy and quick to replace if damaged, lost, or when it reaches the end of its useful lifespan. Since the entire atomizer gets replaced each time over a long period of time they are often more costly than the initially more expensive counterparts which use non-disposable atomizers with replaceable...
