The Breeze is an AIO (all-in-one) device that resembles its brand-mate, the Gusto, at least in size, but is also a lot closer to the Eleaf iCare concerning its shape and design. The Breeze has a built-in 3ml tank with a thin, side viewing window and uses a chimney atomizer with a 0.6ohm/1.0ohm coil at the bottom. The Breeze is one of the best starter kits around right now.

The rounded bottom prevents the device from standing, and if it can only lie on its side, then it becomes incredibly hard to fill, and even once it is loaded, there is a good chance that it’ll leak.

There is a lot to like about the Breeze, like its dual draw methods (button and draw activated), its compact size, the aluminum construction, and the included 0.6ohm coils. The rounded bottom is not the end of the world, but it is a little disappointing considering that Aspire is one of the more innovative vape companies around.

The First Look at the Aspire Breeze

The Aspire Breeze is a convenient little package. It hits all the marks that an all-in-one device should have, which makes it easy to use and operate. The device is quite light and fits great in your hand. There is a plastic shield that guards the mouthpiece against any outside contaminants like dust or dirt. There is a single, centrally-located firing button on the front of the device.

And to top it all off, there is a solid, metal plate wedged underneath the mouthpiece that acts as a screwdriver to unscrew the otherwise impossible-to-remove chimney inside the device. The inclusion of a tiny, little tool to take out the tank makes the rounded bottom of the device even more of a mystery.

The internal tank has a capacity of 3ml, and the side-viewing window has a red-line maximum to help guide you not to overfill the tank. There is also a small LED light behind the window that also acts as the battery indicator level.

How the Aspire Breeze Works

The three elements that lead to a great vaping experience on the pod are the 1000mAh battery, two coils: 1.0-Ohm Coil for nicotine salts and 0.6ohm coil for a regular e-liquid, and the 3ml tank capacity, again, not a lot, but enough.

AIO’s are designed to be uncomplicated, and the Aspire Breeze passes that test. Just slip off the plastic mouthpiece and use the previously mentioned metal plate to unscrew the chimney from the tank.

The coil gets attached to the bottom of the chimney tube and has a gold-plated contact on its underside. The coil has a few wick holes (three to be exact) placed on its body, but given the entire apparatus will be dipped in e-juice it will be readily saturated.

The tank is obviously a top-fill, and with the Breeze, so it doesn’t tip over on you while filling it. Once the tank is filled, just replace the atomizer and chimney, screw it into place and replace the mouthpiece.

Aspire Breeze 2 AIO in Use

The Aspire Breeze is perfect for stealthy, on-the-go vaping. The vapor clouds coming out of the Breeze are not gigantic so the device won’t attract so much negative attention, but will still give satisfying hits. Borrowing one of the most attractive features of pod mods – draw-activated vaping – was a coup and gave the device more versatility than just having a one-button operation.

Dropping the atomizer/chimney combination into the tank means the ability to get to the coils and change them (as kit include 2 off the choose from). The mouthpiece also puts too much space between the chimney and your mouth and alters the vapor flavor considerably. However, the versatile protective cup and top-fill design make this pod user-friendly.

How the Aspire Breeze Stacks Up

Eleaf iCare Mini shares a lot of characteristics with the Aspire Breeze: they both share an internal tank with a drop-in atomizer and chimney, a side-viewing window, and two ways to inhale.

The Eleaf iCare Mini is definitely the device more appropriate for mouth-to-lung vapers since its coils are not sub-ohm but are both 1.1ohms. Specs-wise, the Eleaf is also slighter in its battery power and tank capacity, 320mAh, and 1.3ml, respectively. So, it’s obvious that the two devices have their differences as well as their similarities.

When it comes to performance, the similar AIO device Innokin EQ Pod System Starter Kit (with 2ml tank capacity, 800mAh, and 0.5ohm resistance) delivers throaty hits that resemble cigarettes and it is a tiny device.

The sub-ohm coils on the Breeze do push it more towards direct-lung hits, although with some adjustment to the airflow slot, it’s possible to get some mouth-to-lung action. It’s hard to determine which device comes out on top with the beneficial features since they share the same cons.

Wrapping Up The Aspire Breeze

The Aspire Breeze does not hold a candle to the ease-of-use and smooth functioning of the Aspire Gusto. But inserting a pod into a mod is much more preferable to having to deal with a dripping, metal tube that requires cleaning up after every tank refilling.

The Breeze is small, great for portability, and the vapor production. The Breeze takes after its name and holds this fresh sense of the sea along with its universal vapor abilities.

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.
