Aspire release the updated Nautilus 2 tank and Zelos kit
Back in 2013 Aspire released the Nautilus tank, a 5ml tank with superb bottom dual coils. It quickly became a favourite among vapers all over the world, and soon a smaller 2ml version was released, the Aspire Nautilus Mini. Updates to the coils came, too, with their patented BVC (bottom vertical coils) becoming the standard-bearer for many tanks to follow.
The Nautilus and Nautilus Mini tanks have been hugely popular for years, and Aspire followed with an altered, more powerful version in 2016, the Nautilus X.
Finally, though, Aspire have updated the Nautilus and Nautilus Mini with the brand new Nautilus 2 tank, which retains the original BVC coils and adds a new sub-ohm 0.7 ohm coil to the lineup. For those who loved the original tanks, the Nautilus 2 is a long-awaited and perfect upgrade.
The Nautilus 2 features several upgrades over the Nautilus and Nautilus Mini. While not as large as the full-size Nautilus in juice capacity, the Nautilus 2 does hold the same 2ml as the Nautilis Mini.
At the base of the tank, the Nautilus 2 features an increased maximum airflow while also allowing for the same restricted mouth-to-lung inhale that you’re used to.
Furthermore, the Nautilus 2 brings an ease-of-use to the table that was missing before. The top cap will unscrew from its base to allow for top-filling, which means that you no longer have to remove the tank from your device, turn it upside down and then remove the base of the tank in order to fill up your juice.
If increased airflow and top-filling weren’t enough, the Nautilus 2 also comes pre-fitted with a brand new coil. The included 1.8 ohm coil is exactly the same as the previous Nautilus and Nautilus Mini coils, but the new 0.7 ohm coil is a sub-ohm coil designed for a larger inhale.
This new sub-ohm coil isn’t going to win any cloud competitions, but it will now allow you to grow with your tank system. As you get used to the restricted inhale from the 1.8 ohm coil, if you desire a bigger inhale and bigger cloud then you have an option.
Which mod should I pair with this tank?
The best thing about the new tank from Aspire is that they’ve included it in a fantastic kit, which they’re calling the Zelos. The Nautilus and Nautilus Mini were perfect matches for the iStick from Eleaf, but Aspire have developed their own mod for this tank, and it’s really fantastic.
Outputting up to 50 watts of power and with complete support for temperature control with Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel coils, the Zelos is also a good mod to use with other sub-ohm tanks, too.
The 1.8 ohm coil is rated for between 10 and 14 watts, and the 0.7 ohm coil is rated for between 18 and 23 watts, so you have plenty of power for the included coils that come with the Nautilus 2 tank.
Should I upgrade my Nautilus/Nautilus Mini?
If you love your Nautilus or Nautilus Mini, you’ll love that the Nautilus 2 uses the same coils. If you value increased airflow (and therefore the ability to use the 0.7 ohm coils effectively) and like the idea of top-filling for ease-of-use, then this is certainly worthy of consideration.
And we think it looks pretty awesome, too!
