Today I will be reviewing the Nautilus Prime e-cigarette kit from Aspire, a brand that has been around for a long time. I personally have always liked Aspire’s products from the beginning of my vaping journey mainly because they have always made products that are reliable and performed really well. My first impressions on the Nautilus Prime Kit when I first heard about the launch were positive and I had high expectations for this product.
Upon unboxing the Nautilus Prime kit, I was surprised by how compact the device is. The device fits comfortably in the palm of my hand and has a nice ergonomic feel to it. The device’s frame is made from anodized aluminium alloy and is quite lightweight. At the top and bottom of the device there are chrome plated panels which complement the matte body really well. The Nautilus Prime has a unique hexagonal shape with the edges smoothened out to give the user a comfortable grip.
At the top of the device, you will find the pod that slots into the device by pushing it down and it fits in place. The pod fits nice and snug and is held in place by friction as there are no magnets. There is a seal around the contact points to help assist with preventing excess liquid from entering into the device and causing damage.
On the side of the device, there is a billet box style fire button which I find makes the device even more comfortable to use. On the same side there is a compact black OLED screen that displays all the information that user would need, such as Wattage, Battery level, Coil resistance and Voltage. The screen is not overly bright and only displays one colour but in a simple yet classy way.
On the front of the device, you will find a small transparent window which makes it easier for the user to see their liquid level. Right below the window there is an airflow switch to control the airflow restriction.
The pod is made from a PCTG plastic that is transparent to make it easier for the user to see their liquid level. It has a 3,4ml capacity with a side fill port insulated but a silicon plug. The coils plug directly into the bottom of the pod.
The Nautilus Prime is powered by a 2000maH built in battery. I have been vaping at around 16W and the battery would last me a complete day from one full charge. There is a USB Type-C charging port and with this improvement, the device now takes approximately an hour to charge from flat.
In conclusion, I am with how well Aspire has designed this pod system mainly because of its ergonomic feel, its great battery life and large liquid capacity. The device in my opinion is ideal for Mouth To Lung vapers as the coils that are included in the box are MTL compatible and if the device is used at low wattages, the battery should comfortably last a full day.
