- Simple to use
- Carbon fiber finish
- Only 30W
- Adjustments via a knob
Aspire has recently entered the box mod niche and what better way to do this than with their own take on the light and easy to use devices that can be used with today’s wide range of sub-ohm tanks. I have for you today the Aspire ESP 30W, a compact box mod that’s incredibly light, even though its powered by an internal 1900mAh battery and at the same time super stealthy. It’s perfectly balanced, it very easy to old and the use and it’s the perfect tool to experiment with sub-ohming. And above all, it’s a mod that sells for less than $40 so it’s a great option for all those who are on a budget. You pair this with the iSub from Innokin and you have one of the cheapest combos for top-class sub ohm vaping.
The Aspire ESP 30W comes packed in a black cardboard box and inside you are only going to find the mod, a user’s manual and a good quality micro-USB charging cable. The device measures only 86mm x 24mm x 41mm so it’s perfectly concealed in your hand and it’s being operated by a rotary knob on the top. The finish is made from high quality carbon fiber and it looks chic and durable.
On the top of the device we have the 510 connection that comes with a spring loaded center pin. The threading is made from good quality stainless steel and I didn’t encounter problems regardless of what I mounted on top of it. You are also going to notice the stainless rotary knob that’s used to adjust the wattage and this works like a charm. The mod can go from 5W up to 30W in 1W increments and this is enough in my opinion for a decent vaping experience.
The firing button is located on the main side and on the left we have the OLED display. This display resembles a bit the one on a DNA device and is shows from left to right the remaining battery, the atomizer resistance, the output voltage and the current wattage. The lighting is pretty good and everything shows up crisp and readable. When you have no atomizer attached or the resistance is out of range the device is going to show a message with ‘check atomizer’. When the battery is very low and you need to recharge it’s going to show ‘Check battery’.
To recharge the Aspire ESP 30W I recommend you use the provided micro-USB cable and once you connect it to a USB port the LED notification light is going to glow red and eventually green when the battery reaches 100%. A cool thing about it is that you can vape on the ESP while it’s charging, however the port is located on the base so it’s going to be hard to sit it up straight when you have an RDA on top.
You can use this compact box mod with atomizers or tanks with a resistance as low as 0.5 Ohms and be sure to expect a reasonable amount of vapor. I really like the way you can adjust the wattage with the rotary knob by only using your thumb and the firing button is also perfectly placed for optimum comfort while vaping.
The Aspire ESP 30W is a great device for all categories of vapers but I believe it’s addressed mostly for beginners. It’s very simple to use and I didn’t encountered any issues with it for the last two weeks.
