In the last few years, vaping has gained significant traction, especially in the U.K. and the U.S. Numerous brands have forayed into this market. Some survived and made a mark. Some perished as soon as they had started. In the vaping world, Aspire is seen as a pioneering brand that has managed to pull amateur as well as expert vapers with its excellent products. The brand has played a pivotal role in changing the way vapers use pods. The latest edition to the brand’s list of impressive pod devices is the Aspire Breeze NXT.

A General Outlook

Aspire’s Breeze range is an impressive one. This range includes hybrid all-in-one devices that are sleek, portable, and comfortable to use. Aspire Breeze NXT is the latest addition to this range. There are two main aspects in which the Aspire Breeze NXT varies from its predecessors. First, it features an adjustable airflow control system. Thus, users can adjust the airflow based on the amount of juice and flavor they want with each drag. Second, the new Aspire Breeze features a unique coil system. With this new coil system, users can change coils even when the tank is filled with e-liquid.

In this review of the Aspire Breeze NXT, we will delve deeper into the anatomy of this pod, and discuss its various pros and cons, before giving our final verdict on the Aspire Breeze NXT.

Pod Design

One of the upsides of the pod design is the component choice – it’s made out of a semi-transparent, durable material that’s going to withstand a lot of wear and tear. On the inside is a 0.8ohm resistance coil made out of Kanthal, that can be easily replaced through the cutout on the bottom for an easy plug & play connection. Mesh coils are going to give off a strong flavor without burning the liquid.

The side of the pod has a silicone seal which can be lifted for refilling. The tank supports up to 5.4ml of liquid, and the seal is conveniently placed so that the device can be replenished without separating the tank from the body. However, if not done carefully, it can cause some leaking. The e-liquid level can be easily checked as a result of transparent material.

On the bottom of the pod are two airflow holes in the top left and bottom right corner. One of the holes is for the draw, while the other is for the button activation system. The pod is reversible since the holes are mirrored.

The Aspire Breeze NXT has a different mechanism for separating the tank from the rest of the device. It’s removed by gripping it by the textured sides and pulling as hard as possible. Unlike the original Breeze, the NXT tank isn’t spring-loaded and has no buttons on the side to remove it.

Filling the Pod

The pod has an excellent silicone cover on the side for convenient refills. Thanks to the transparent material, it’s straightforward to see how full the tank is to prevent accidental overfilling. The process is simple:

  • Open the silicon plug, located right below the grippy surface of the pod.
  • Fill the tank, continually monitoring the liquid level throughout the process.
  • Close the lid and connect the pod back to the device if you removed it.
  • Don’t start vaping right away. Leave the liquid to settle for around 5-10 minutes, so that the cotton coil soaks it incompletely.

In contrast to the Breeze 2, Aspire Breeze NXT doesn’t have a viewing window on the device in front of the pod. Instead, there’s a thin line on the side that can somewhat be seen through. The sides are textured and fairly easy to see through. Still, the secure filling method contributes to the device’s convenience factor.

Coil Installation

With Aspire Breeze NXT, coil installation is as easy as it gets. It works on a plug & play, press-fit basis. It’s a rarity that a pod-based device supports coil replacement, let alone through such an easy method. The installation process consists of a few steps:

  • As always, make sure to prime the coil before installing it. Put in a few drops of e-liquid through the top opening and the side holes of the coil directly on the cotton, ensuring that it’s soaked up good.
  • Align it with the hole at the bottom of the pod – it’s orientation-specific, so you can’t go wrong.
  • Push in forcefully until it’s completely snug.

When you’re installing a new coil, it’s going to need a bit more pressure to fit completely. However, it’s crucial to make sure that it’s completely flush so that no liquid escapes. To make the installation smoother, you can lube up the o-rings.

The process of removing the coil is completely the same. It can be a bit difficult since it’s a tight fit, so try to use your nails to loosen and separate it a bit. The plug & play mechanic is fantastic, especially if you’re in a hurry.

Another advantage of the Breeze NXT is that the pod doesn’t have to be empty while installing/removing the coil. The liquid stays inside even when the pod is completely full. However, to reduce the chances of spilling, it’s best to replace it when the tank is at least half empty. The coils were redesigned in comparison to former devices, which means they are exclusive and can only be used on the Aspire Breeze NXT.

Adjustable Airflow

Aspire Breeze NXT Adjustable Airflow
One significant advantage of this device is the integrated wheel located on its exterior that is used for adjusting airflow. It has a wide variety of airflow ranges that are going to satisfy both DTL and MTL vapers. The wheel is conveniently placed on the side of the Breeze NXT to support the natural position of your thumb while you’re vaping.

Rotating it until the hole is half covered is going to provide a medium MTL experience while leaving it wide open gives off a very loose MTL. It ranges from a restrictive DTL all the way to tight MTL. No matter what type of user you are, there is going to be a suitable option for everyone.

The wheel is metal and high quality. It’s tightly in-built, so you can be sure that when you set it up, it’s not going to move at all. Furthermore, you won’t have to worry about accidentally rotating it. Its ergonomic design makes it easy to adjust with one finger.

The convenience factor, along with the variety makes this one of the selling points of Aspire Breeze NXT.

Buttons & Indicators

The device comes with a single rectangular button located in a concaved middle part of the body. Around the button is an LED indicator that flashes in either red, green, blue or white. To turn it on and off, you’ll need to press it quickly five times in succession. It flashes in white color three times to indicate that it’s turned on or off.

Depending on the remaining battery charge, the LED is going to light up in different colors anytime you press it to vape. It’s utterly dependent on the remaining voltage. The light changes as follows:

  • Above 3.8V – green (fully charged)
  • Between 3.5-3.8V – blue (partial charge)
  • Below 3.5V – red (time to charge)

Strength & Taste

The width of the mouthpiece is just enough to provide a strong, not too airy draw that manages to transfer the flavor extremely well. The coils are fairly large and contain impressive wicking properties. Mesh coils are going to bring out the most out of every e-juice, but it would be nice if the device supported more than one type of coils.

It can take a few minutes for the flavor to really show up. In the beginning, it might feel a little bit underwhelming. You should always wait for the e-juice to settle up for at least five minutes and let the coil soak it in. The vapor is not harmful for its size, but don’t expect to be cloud chasing with it.

The device has a fairly warm vape, and with the airflow wide open, it’s going to create a lot of vapor. Because of this, you should be careful with the nicotine content of your juices and salts, as it can be quite overwhelming, especially if you’re a beginner.

Since the power goes down as the battery empties, the difference in vaping quality is going to be fairly noticeable. The vape is going to be a lot cooler with a somewhat milder flavor, which might even be an advantage to some.

Performance & Battery Life

Aspire Breeze NXT Battery
The Aspire Breeze NXT features a hefty 1000mAh battery with a maximum output of 20W. Since the device itself is extremely lightweight, you won’t even notice it. If you’re a really heavy vaper, it’s going to be just enough to last you the whole day (almost 12 hours). For beginners, it can easily go for a couple of days on a single charge.

The device is charged through a micro USB port on the opposite side of the airflow control wheel. Charging power is 1A, and it’s going to take 60-90 minutes to charge it completely.

The LED indicators are going to light up during charging to show the current power level. Security is also up to the standards with both overcharge and overheat protections.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Adjustable airflow on the side
  • Replaceable coils
  • Automatic draw or fire button for choice
  • Easy side filling
  • Bypass output mode

Cons

  • No constant output

Final Verdict

The Breeze range has had many fans over the years. These light-weight pods are portable and chic. The Aspire Breeze NXT takes this legacy forward. The Aspire Breeze NXT features an improved airflow system and a powerful battery. The tank filling system has also been much simplified. The vapor and flavor produced are also excellent. All in all, this is an ideal vaping device for people who have just started vaping as it’s simple.
