The Aspire Pegasus is a blending of power and elegance, just like its namesake. It is a 70W mod powered by a single 18650 battery and features both temperature control and wattage mode. The Pegasus also keeps thing old-school with a rotating gear at the top of the device that acts as the selector button.

The Aspire Pegasus has a gleaming, brushed aluminum finish to it on both sides, and a solid, stainless-steel build, making it substantial without being overly bulky. The side-facing, 0.86-inch OLED screen sits below a massively protruding firing button and above a USB charging port.

Everything about the Pegasus shines brightly. There are three color options available for the mod, all of them refined, darker colors, like brushed chrome, brass, and slate.

And rather than going for a conventional, box shape for their device, Aspire chose to curve one edge of the Pegasus to allow for maximum comfort when holding it. While the clean, brushed finish certainly does impress visually, it does make the device too easily prone to scratches and blemishes.

At least, that is what it looks like at first. However, after almost a week of steady use, the finish does not seem to show any significant signs of wear or tear. The Pegasus takes a single, bottom-loaded, 18650 battery, and the battery port underneath opens quickly with the softest touch since the door is spring-loaded.

Aspire also offers a rather weighty, but classy, charging port for the Pegasus (sold separately, of course), which can you use to both show-off your new mod and charge it at the same time. Up top, the Pegasus boasts even more bright, shiny surfaces with an impeccably buffed chrome plate housing the spring-loaded 510 connection.

Taking the Pegasus for a Vape

Because of a lack of buttons, the Pegasus is very easy to use, naturally. Five clicks of the firing button turns on the device. Five clicks also locks the rotating gear that acts as the selector mechanism.

Changing the variables of your vape, whether it is in temperature control or wattage mode can be done in .5 increments or increments of 1 depending on how fast you spin the wheel, so to say. Being used to having easy access to the selector buttons on most standard mods, it was a pain to both hold the mod and change the settings at the same time.

Kudos to Aspire for taking a different route, but selector buttons are typically located on the user interface for a reason: user comfort. What Aspire did get right, however, is installing an accelerometer into the screen so that it flips whenever you turn it around, making it easy to read in any position.

The chipset inside the Pegasus can recognize different coil types, like Kanthal wire or nickel and titanium and it adjusts the mode (VW or TC) accordingly. Its resistance-setting abilities are lacking, however, as the resistance had to be readjusted after the chipset guessed the resistance incorrectly.

Easy Going Vape

The Pegasus comes as a stand-alone model, but it is compatible with any tank lower than 25mm in diameter. As this is an Aspire mod, it only seemed fitting to try the device out with an Aspire tank, the Triton II.

Other possibilities were floated, like the brand-new Aspire Revvo tank, but the stubby, and wide Revvo was not the best aesthetic match for the sleek, and svelte Pegasus. The Triton II fit perfectly onto the 510 connection and suited the mod’s metallic sheen.

The Kanthal coils, rated at 0.3ohms, and vaped best anywhere between 45W-55W worked well at 45W, but the party got started when the Pegasus flew around the 55W mark. Even at the 55W mark, the cloud cover was significant, just like the old-school Columbia Tristar logo, where a Pegasus charges out from an endless cloud bank.

Having only Kanthal coils in the tank, I was not able to try out the temperature control feature. But the maximum temperature allowed by the chipset is 600F, for anyone who is a TC vaper.

The Aspire Pegasus vs. the Innokin Coolfire IV

Right off the bat, the Aspire Pegasus packs more punch, regarding wattage output than the Innokin Coolfire IV. The former can reach a maximum power output of 70W, compared to the latter’s 40W maximum.

But the form factor of both vaporizers is what inspired this match-up. The Coolfire is a shade shorter than the Pegasus at 86mm tall compared to the 91mm of the Aspire model.

And they both fit very comfortably in the hand. The Coolfire was an easier model to use, however, since it featured a conventional user interface with the firing button, OLED screen, and selector buttons all located in the same place.

The Pegasus, while striking and elegantly cool, is a bit awkward to hold, and use. The Cool Fire is not only more functional, but it is easy on the eyes as well.

The Aspire Pegasus: Fly, Baby, Fly

Overall, the Aspire Pegasus is a little confused as to what it is honestly. Its general design aesthetic screams out pomp and circumstance, with hardly a dull spot on its exterior (save for the casing around the OLED screen). It shines brighter than a freshly waxed Mercedes S-Class.

The rotating wheel/control gear/whatever you want to call it was a misstep, though. It threw off the entire look of the otherwise smartly designed cloud-making machine. Aside from that, however, the Pegasus still could fly with the best of them.

It felt great to hold (although not to handle) and it was able to move between its different modes swiftly. The battery life was adequate, but not superb. The form factor is the main selling point here, as the Pegasus feels as natural to hold as riding a winged horse.

Review Score: 80/100 - 80
Pros:
  • Looks great
  • Solid, sturdy build

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
