Aspire Breeze vs. Breeze 2
There has always been a strong market for all-in-one vaping devices. For those who don’t want to troubleshoot incompatibilities or worry about potential safety issues between vaping devices and third-party tanks, an all-in-one device that combines the tank, battery and controls in a single unit is the perfect answer. It wasn’t until recently, though, that vaping product manufacturers really started to get all-in-one devices completely right. The advent of pod vaping systems – and the popularity of those devices – caused vaping product manufacturers to go back to the drawing board and throw extra resources behind their own all-in-one vaping devices. The Aspire Breeze 2 is one such device. It corrects the problems of the previous generation of all-in-one devices while drawing inspiration from the pod devices that have recently become so popular. Whether you’re currently using the original Aspire Breeze – or you decided not to buy it because of its shortcomings – the Aspire Breeze 2 is a device that deserves your strong consideration if you’re looking for an e-cigarette that’s easy to use but really delivers the goods. In this article, we’ll compare the Aspire Breeze vs. Breeze 2 to make your buying decision an easier one.
Reduced Spitback and Improved Vapor Production
The biggest problem with the original Aspire Breeze and other all-in-one vaping devices was the position of their atomizer coils. In the Aspire Breeze, the coil attached to the end of a long metal chimney that led down to the bottom of the device. The vapor had to travel the full length of the chimney before it could reach your mouth. The chimney gave the vapor plenty of time to cool before it reached your mouth, resulting in a smooth vaping experience. The problem with the chimney, though, was that it encouraged the e-liquid to condense into droplets. Over time, those droplets would run down the chimney and collect at the top of the atomizer coil. Occasionally, the coil would pop loudly and throw hot e-liquid in your mouth when you tried to vape. To eliminate the problem, you’d have to disassemble the device and blow air through the chimney to clear it out.
The Aspire Breeze 2 eliminates the problem of spitback by positioning the atomizer coil closer to the mouthpiece. Although the new position would ordinarily result in a much warmer vape, the Breeze 2 features a new airflow collar that keeps things cool by introducing extra air into the vapor path. We’ll discuss that in a moment. To cool things down even further, you can install Aspire’s new 1.0-ohm coil. We’ll discuss that shortly as well. The benefit of the new coil position is greatly reduced popping and spitting. You’ll also love the fact that the Aspire Breeze 2 absolutely dwarfs the original Aspire Breeze in terms of vapor production. An additional benefit is that the new tank design of the Breeze 2 makes it much easier to see how much e-liquid you have left.
Airflow Control Collar
One of the biggest shortcomings of all-in-one and pod vaping devices is that they usually have only one airflow setting. You have no way of knowing whether a device’s draw is too airy or too tight for your taste until you’ve already bought the device and potentially wasted your money. The Aspire Breeze 2 is different; a new removable airflow control collar attaches directly to the atomizer coil. Whether you’re looking for a device that can produce huge clouds or something that can give you a tight, cigarette-like draw, you can get what you want by simply adjusting the airflow collar.
New Atomizer Coil for Nicotine Salts
One of the great features of the Aspire Breeze 2 is that it can provide a warm sub-ohm vape or a cooler, lower-wattage vape depending on which atomizer coil you select. The package includes both coil types, so you can pick the one that works best for you. The 0.6-ohm UTech coil is the same as the one used in the original Aspire Breeze, and it works better than ever thanks to the enhancements that we mentioned above. The 1.0-ohm coil is new for the current hardware generation, and Aspire created it to please the world’s many fans of nicotine salt e-liquids. If you prefer higher-nicotine e-liquids and a mouth-to-lung inhaling style, the 1.0-ohm coil is for you. If you prefer lower-nicotine e-liquids and bigger vapor clouds, you’ll want to stick with the original UTech coil. Either way, the Aspire Breeze 2 does an excellent job of supporting multiple vaping styles.
Improved Battery Life
Although the Aspire Breeze 2 works while charging, you don’t buy an ultra-portable vaping device so you can tether it to a USB port all day. All-in-one devices are meant to be simple and user friendly. As such, they typically have permanent internal batteries. Although that design adds greatly to the portability of a device, it also means that you can’t swap batteries on the go. You need a vaping device with the ability to last while you’re out of the house. To that end, Aspire upgraded the battery in the Breeze 2. While the original Aspire Breeze had a 650 mAh battery, the Breeze 2 has a battery capacity of 1,000 mAh. Aside from the replaceable atomizer coil, the battery life is a key way in which the Aspire Breeze 2 differs from standard pod vaping devices. Most small pod vaping systems have battery capacities well under 400 mAh.
Final Thoughts: The Aspire Breeze 2 Is a Worthy Upgrade
If you own and enjoy the original Aspire Breeze, the Aspire Breeze 2 is a device that you simply must try because it improves on the original in the aspects that matter most. The Aspire Breeze 2 generates more vapor and has better battery life. The two coils and airflow control collar give you more flexibility in the way you vape. The new chimney design of the Breeze 2 also resolves the occasional problems that the original Breeze had with popping and spitting. The Aspire Breeze 2 is a better device in every way, and we believe it is absolutely one of the best small vaping devices on the market.
