The Aspire Cleito 120 and the Cleito 120 Pro are the latest additions to the Aspire brand. They have improved features that make them superior devices. They hold a larger amount of e-juice, and the wattage range is wider thanks to the Clapton and mesh coils used in the tank. These two tanks provide the vaper with a lot of versatility and power output, resulting in tastier, cloudier, and longer vaping sessions.

Review of the Aspire Cleito 120 Tank

The Cleito 120 sub-ohm tank is the next step in the evolution of the Cleito line of tanks. It is a powerful tank, it has a moderately high e-juice capacity, and it has a slim, eye-appealing design. The tank can handle up to 120 watts of power, and it is rated for 0.16 ohms. This wide range of power output ability gives it a tremendous amount of versatility.

The chassis measures in at 25 mm in diameter at its base, and it can hold an impressive 4 ml of e-liquid. This moderately high capacity gives the user plenty of liquid to get through the day, and it makes the tank more portable because the user does not have to worry about refilling it constantly. The glass is made from Pyrex, giving it extra strength.

The tank puts off savory vapor and flavor because of its airflow and coil system. The efficiency of the airflow is increased with the addition of an extra air slot for a total of three air holes at the base that are fully adjustable and measure at 11 x 2 mm. It has a threaded top fill system with a gasket that makes the tank less susceptible to leaking. The tank uses one 0.16 ohm Clapton coils to heat the e-liquid and produce the vapor, and it has an extra coil in the kit. The coils use rapidly absorbent wicking material that decreases the amount of time needed to prime the coils.

The device has a unique and slim profile that makes it look great on any mod. It is available in three colors: rose gold, black, and silver. Black and rose gold cost an extra dollar, which is not much to ask for, considering that the tank sells for an affordable $23.95.

Overview of the Aspire Cleito 120 Pro

The 120 Pro sub-ohm tank is a streamlined version of the standard 120 sub-ohm tank version. It has a good wattage range, it has a better glass that gives it even more e-juice capacity, and it has a wonderful appearance.

The Pro uses a glass that holds up to 3 ml of e-juice. A lot of vapers will think that is not that much, but the surprise is that the kit comes with an extension glass that boosts the capacity to 4.2 ml. The extension glass holds slightly more e-juice than the standard version, making it even more portable and long-lasting. The tank uses Pyrex reinforced glass to give it extra strength. To refill it, use the sliding top-slide fill slots.

The coils are another thing to like about this tank. The kit comes with two coils. One 0.15 ohm mesh coil rated for 60 to 75 watts, which is great for users who really want to enjoy the flavor. The other is a 0.16 Clapton coil rated for wattages ranging from 100 to 120, an excellent choice for vapers who like high temperatures. The dual slotted bottom airflow helps to improve the flavor. The two airflow slots at the bottom are large and fully adjustable, giving this tank a considerable amount of functionality.

The Pro is a good looking tank, too. It has a squatter profile than the previous version, but it still has an excellent appearance. It also has an extra color, rainbow, which the previous does not have. Additionally, buyers can choose black, gold, and silver.

The Aspire Cleito 120 Coils

The Aspire Cleito and the Pro version use Clapton coils that are rated for 120 watts, but the company recommends that vapers use it at 75 to 100 watts, while the mesh coils are good for 60 to 75 watts. Going higher on the wattage might produce more flavor and vapor, but it makes the tank incredibly hot. The coils are very large and are nearly the same size as those used by the Smok TFV8.

They can take a long time to break-in, and sometimes the user has to vape two or three tanks of e-juice to achieve optimum flavor. The top feature of this device is that it has an RTA deck, which means that vapers who do not like the prebuilt coils can build their own.

How Long do the Coils Last?

Once the coils are broken in, they can last one to three weeks, depending on the setting in which they are vaped. Some coils can be taken off and cleaned with a blow torch or with some other method. Once cleaned, just re-wick and start vaping again.

The Cleito’ 120’s Competitors

Cleito vs. Cleito 120

The original Aspire Cleito has a stainless steel body and dual adjustable airflow, and it uses an easy to use top fill cap. Cleito improved on this model by creating the 120, which has a higher e-juice capacity (4 ml) than its predecessor.

Aspire Cleito 120 vs. Cleito Review

The coils of the Cleito Aspire are rated for 60 to 70 watts depending on the coil used. The 120, on the other hand, is rated for 120 watts. The Cleito Aspire is somewhat cheaper, though, costing $18.95. While it is cheaper, it is better to go with the updated version.

Cleito 120 vs. the Smok TFV8

The Smok TFV8 has many impressive features, outperforming Aspire in several areas. Firstly, the TFV8 has an e-juice capacity of 5.5 to 6 ml.

It can also use four coils that go up to wattages much higher than those used in the Cleito. Vapers using the TFV8 can go up to the recommended wattages of 150 to 180. Those who prefer vaping at lower wattages will like the Cleito more, but for vapers wanting higher wattages, choose the TFV8.

Pros&Cons

Pros

  • Supports handmade coils
  • High e-juice capacity
  • Good cloud and flavor production
  • No spit back
  • Excellent airflow

Cons

  • Juice guzzler
  • Cleto 120 has no bubble glass

Final Thoughts about the Cleito 120

These devices are great tanks for vapers looking for something with a high e-juice capacity that can be vaped at medium voltages. The 3 to 4.2 ml of e-juice these devices ensures longer vape sessions, and the coils provide a considerable amount of vapor and flavor. The only downside to this tank is that it does not have a removable mouthpiece. It would also be nice if the standard 120 came with a bubble glass like the Cleito Pro version. Other than that, there are few issues with these tanks.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.
