When it comes to simple to use kits, there are few better options than the Aspire PockeX. It has gained notoriety, especially among new vapers, due to its hassle-free operation and its ability to offer both MTL (Mouth to Lung) and RDL (Restricted Direct Lung) styles of vaping.
The exterior is sleek and unassuming and comes in a variety of metallic colours. It lacks a display screen and in terms of buttons, this device has just one – the fire button. I feel that this fact greatly adds to the straightforward nature of the PockeX and bypasses the daunting feeling that new vapers may experience when it comes to devices that have several modes or have adjustable features.
This device’s compact stature and rounded, cylindrical shape means that it is a perfect fit for even the smallest of pockets. In spite of its small size, the PockeX has a hefty, substantial feel that just oozes quality. I really admire that Aspire has kept it simple and have avoided over-complication.
The PockeX features a built-in, rechargeable 1500mAh battery. Some vapers may think that it seems a tad on the small side, but it has lasted me about a day of moderate usage. This kit allows for pass through vaping, so you can vape it whilst it is on charge.
The PockeX is easily connected to a power source via Micro USB and takes roughly 60-90 minutes to fully charge. Battery level is indicated by LED lights on the fire button and you can tell when it’s running low by the colour of the light – flashing orange means it is time to plug it in to a suitable USB charger and a steady green means it is fully charged.
One of the most defining aspects of the PockeX is it’s ability to offer vapers a chance to enjoy both MTL and RDL vaping. One of the key factors behind this is the choice of coils in the kit. There are two variations, a 0.6Ohm and a 1.2Ohm, both of which fit snugly into the unscrewable top cap. Using the 0.6Ohm coil and a high VG e-liquid, I have enjoyed full on flavour and surprisingly decent vapour production. Comparatively, the 1.2Ohm coil worked fantastic alongside 20mg nicotine salts and still retained a good level of flavour.
Coil longevity is impressive and I have heard reports of them lasting well over a month – obviously depending on usage.
Filling and Airflow
Filling the Aspire PockeX is possibly the easiest method I have come across in my six years of vaping. It simply involves unscrewing the top part of the device and filling liquid halfway up the glass (there is a miniscule line indicating the maximum fill level). There are no rubber gaskets, tiny fill holes or having to clumsily disassemble the device in order to fill it up – another great feature for new vapers especially.
This device does not feature an adjustable airflow control, and therefore it can be a little restrictive if you are planning to vape direct to lung. However I found that it is at a level that is rather ambiguous and can accommodate both an MTL or RDL inhale.
It is very clear to see that Aspire had simplicity and ease of use in mind when designing the PockeX.
Not only is it straightforward to operate, but battery life is adequate and cost wise it is difficult to beat. It truly is an all-rounder and I found that it can be a great option for all, even seasoned vapers who want an inexpensive, easy to use and discreet device for on the go.
- A very versatile device for all levels of vapers
- Good coil longevity
- I’d like to see some sort of adjustable airflow option
