The Nautilus AIO is the newest pod style vaporizer from Aspire and it is a lot more like a successor to the Breeze 2 but at the same time, it isn’t. They have the same form factor and battery capacity, but the Aspire Nautilus AIO has a different body and pod design. They almost perform the same and they also have the same functionality but the biggest difference between the two is that the Aspire Nautilus AIO uses a different set of coils, and if you are a big fan of the Nautilus tank, your guess is right, it uses the 1.8 ohm Nautilus BVC coil heads.

Let me first say that the Aspire Nautilus AIO is very light compared to the already lightweight Breeze 2. This is because it is made entirely of plastic which is a bit of a downgrade from the aluminum alloy body of the Breeze 2.

I am not saying that it is made of cheap quality plastic but when you hold both devices in your hands, it is pretty apparent that the Breeze 2 feels a bit more premium than the Nautilus AIO. The Aspire Nautilus AIO is available in 6 different satin finishes and each of those colors has different trims such as black, chrome and gold.

I personally like the black and chrome trim as the gold one looks a little too tacky for my taste. For the design layout, the Nautilus AIO has the same layout as the Breeze 2. It has a fire button which is a power button as well, 2 side buttons to release the pod, and a protective cap.

The battery indicator is better on the Nautilus AIO as it is embedded inside the fire button, unlike the Breeze 2’s internal LED indicator which is almost impossible to see especially when it is bright outside. The Aspire Nautilus AIO also has the same battery capacity of 1000 mah and has a direct output wattage of 12 watts.

The pod is a different story though, as it is more like an upgraded version of the breeze 2’s pod in terms of capacity and design. The pod is also refillable but it can hold up to 4.5 ml of e liquid compared to the Breeze 2’s 3 ml capacity. The Nautilus AIO’s pod also has an easier mechanism for replacing the coil head as the airflow control ring which screws to the coil head is now located on the bottom.

This pod design is also better since you can now adjust the airflow setting easier since all you have to do is release the pod and set your desired airflow while testing it instead of removing the top cap on the Breeze 2 and putting it back to test it.

The Aspire Nautilus AIO utilizes the fan favorite Nautilus BVC coil head which is one of the most awesome coil heads that has ever been made. It is a simple vertical coil build but it performs really well and the fact that it has been around for a very long time now proves that it is trusted and proven.

Out of the box, there are 2 Nautilus BVC coil heads included, both have a resistance of 1.8 ohms but they are different from each other. The one with white O-rings is your standard Nautilus BVC coil head which is meant to be used with the regular or freebase e liquids and the one with green O-rings are optimized for nicotine salt e liquids.

The one that is optimized for nicotine salt e liquids have 2 bigger juice slots but it doesn’t have a mesh on top of the coil build for spit backs like the one on the standard BVC coil head which is kind of questionable. Performance-wise I don’t actually feel any difference from both coil heads as they perform exactly the same.

The flavor is exceptional since the coil head chimney is closer to your mouth and the vapor production exceeded my expectations from a 1.8 ohm coil build.

Versatility

The Nautilus AIO is one of the best pod systems when it comes to versatility. The fact that it utilizes the Nautilus BVC coil heads is one of the main reasons since you can find these coil heads anywhere. Its pod’s capacity is also one of the largest when it comes to pod systems so you can basically go through the day without a single refill.

The Nautilus AIO also has an airflow setting so you can pretty much make it a super tight mouth to lung or a restricted direct to lung hit.

Portability

Portability

The Nautilus AIO is almost similar in size compared to the Breeze 2. It is only 87.5mm in height, 37mm in width and 21mm in thickness. It is a very pocket-friendly device and an overall good device when you are out and about.

Conclusion

The Aspire Nautilus AIO is one of my top recommended devices when it comes to pod systems. It has everything you need for a good beginner device and it actually exceeds all my expectations for just a pod system. It uses an excellent coil head, it has a big battery capacity, a large pod capacity and it performs way better than most pod systems on the market.

The only time I really wouldn’t recommend buying the Nautilus AIO is if you are already using the Breeze 2 since they are very similar in performance although the Nautilus still has the better flavor production due to its pod design.
