Aspire Speeder Athos Guide: 200-Watt Mod With
Aspire’s New Penta-Coil Tank
Are you looking for more out of the
vaping experience – more vapor, richer flavor and better battery
life? It’s time to upgrade to a dual-battery mod. You need a device
with the power to drive a modern sub-ohm tank, and you need a tank
capable of harnessing that power. With the Aspire Speeder Athos kit,
you’ll get both. Let’s learn more about why this package is
becoming the go-to vaping setup for experienced vapers around the
We sell the Aspire Speeder Athos kit
here at Triple 7 Vaping for just $63.77. If you already have the tank
or atomizer that you’d like to use, you can buy the Aspire
Speeder mod on its own for $44.77. We also sell the Aspire
Athos tank separately for $28.77. Aspire
Athos coils cost $4.77 each.
What Is the Aspire Speeder Mod?
The Aspire Speeder reaches a maximum
power of 200 watts using two 18650 batteries. The Speeder features a
bright 0.96-inch OLED display and a built-in USB port for fast
charging. The mod’s battery door has ample venting to allow heat
from the batteries to escape.
Design and Ergonomics
Companies in the vaping industry work
hard to design devices that’ll appeal to consumers’ changing
tastes. While trying to create the best looking vape mods, though,
many companies neglect to consider ergonomics – which is really a
shame considering the amount of time that the average mod spends in
its owner’s hand. The Aspire Speeder is the rare exception that
both looks and feels great. The Aspire Speeder is a master class in
tasteful, elegant design, and it looks especially beautiful with the
matching Athos tank.
Are you tired of using a big box mod
with a tiny fire button? The Aspire Speeder ditches the traditional
fire button in favor of a large fire bar. With a fire bar, there’s
no need to worry about whether you’re pushing the fire button or
one of the adjustment buttons. You can push the fire bar simply by
squeezing the Aspire Speeder. The Speeder is also designed for
ambidextrous operation; the screen automatically flips when you
change its orientation.
Since the Speeder features Aspire’s
latest microcontroller and firmware, this device supports all the
most popular vaping modes including variable wattage, variable
voltage, temperature control, wattage curve and bypass. Since some of
these vaping modes may not be familiar to you, we’ll discuss them
in greater detail.
Temperature Control Mode
Some coil materials – most notably
nickel, titanium and stainless steel – change greatly in resistance
as they get hotter. If you use a coil made from a material that
supports temperature control vaping, the Aspire Speeder can use the
coil’s resistance to estimate its temperature. Setting a maximum
temperature for your atomizer coil helps to ensure that you’ll
never get a harsh dry hit if you forget to refill your tank.
Wattage Curve Mode
Would you like to give your tank an
extra burst of power at the beginning of each puff to make the
atomizer generate vapor instantly, lowering the power after a second
or two to prevent the wick from burning? With wattage curve mode, you
can do exactly that. Use this mode to deliver a specific wattage to
your coil during each second of a long puff.
Bypass mode makes the Aspire Speeder
behave like a mechanical mod. In this mode, the Speeder delivers the
batteries’ full power directly to the tank. When the batteries are
fully charged, you’ll get more vapor. The vapor production tapers
off gently as the batteries lose their charge. The Speeder’s safety
features remain active in bypass mode.
What Is the Aspire Athos Tank?
Athos Tank Features
The Aspire Athos is a terrific looking
tank that also happens to be the answer you need if you’re on the
hunt for greater vapor production. If you want your e-cigarette to
generate more vapor, the easiest way to do so is by increasing the
mass and surface area of the atomizer coil. In designing the Athos
tank, Aspire’s engineers asked themselves one simple question: Why
should an atomizer head have just one or two coils? As long as a coil
head has adequate wicking properties, there’s no need to stop at
just one or two coils – so the Aspire Athos features up to five
coils per head. The Aspire Athos penta-coil head has a resistance of
0.16 ohms and operates in a suggested power range of 100-120 watts. A
0.3-ohm tri-coil head is also available. The tri-coil head has a
suggested power range of 60-75 watts. With this kit, you’ll receive
one of each coil and will have an opportunity to choose your
favorite. You’ll also receive two mouthpieces with differing shapes
to suit your vaping preferences.
Filling the Athos Tank
Filling the Aspire Athos is easy thanks
to the textured top cap that’s easy to grip and turn. To fill the
tank, simply twist off the top cap to expose the filling area. Place
your dropper or bottle tip in the slot on the outside of the Athos
tank, and fill the tank until the e-liquid reaches the top of the
glass. To keep the tank from spitting or leaking, avoid getting
e-liquid in the large center hole.
Who Should Buy the Aspire Speeder Athos Kit?
looking for the best vaping kit on the market, your two best options
are the Aspire Speeder Athos Kit and the Aspire
SkyStar Revvo kit, available elsewhere on this site for $67.77.
Comparing the two kits, you’ll note that the Aspire SkyStar has a
slightly higher maximum power of 210 watts. It also has a
center-mounted 510 connection, while the 510 connection of the
Speeder is offset. The SkyStar has a touch-screen interface, which
means that changing power or temperature settings can be a bit slow
compared to changing those settings with traditional up/down buttons.
However, having a touch screen also means that it’s much more
difficult to change your settings accidentally while vaping. The
Speeder has the traditional up/down buttons.
With its traditional adjustment
buttons, large fire bar and penta-coil tank, the Aspire Speeder Athos
kit represents the pinnacle of traditional box mod and sub-ohm tank
design. This sleek vape mod is guaranteed to satisfy. It is
affordable, powerful and exactly what you want if you’re ready for
an upgrade to the vapor production, flavor quality or battery life
that you enjoy when vaping.
