Aspire Tigon Vape Kit Review
Summary: Two coil options, two drip tips and two airflow slots. This kit is one that will evolve with you as your tastes change.
The Versatile Vape
You’ll almost certainly know Aspire for their cult classic Nautilus tank and PockeX kit. Their new starter kit, the Tigon, is the complete package that’s reminiscent of the Nautilus. However, you’ll find a few super nifty updates that make it really stand out. If you’re a new vaper, this one was for you but it also has plenty to offer experienced vapers too.
The Aspire Tigon vape specs:
It’s a slim pen style vape, measuring in at 123mm tall and 23mm in diameter. You can remove the the tank from the battery thanks to the 510 connector. This makes for easy cleaning but also allows you to pop it on a regulated mod if you fancy too. It has the standard 2ml TPD capacity as well as two different airflow vents and two different coils.
One coil is for mouth to lung vaping at a 1.2ohm resistance and the other is for Sub Ohm vaping with a 0.4ohm resistance. The battery is a respectable 1800mAh which should be plenty to keep you vaping all day, especially if used with the 1.2ohm coil. It also has 2A quick charging which is always great for when you only have 30 minutes to charge up before you’re out the door. To use the Tigon, it’s the usual 5 clicks on, press to vape and 5 clicks off.
Aspire Tigon Functionality:
In terms of how it is to use and how it vapes, the Tigon is an outstanding starter kit. Aspire have always been great at producing tanks that pack a punch on flavour and the Tigon is no different. Both coils are Nichrome and they give you a smooth, crisp flavour no matter which juice you run through them.
In terms of vaping, the tank is super versatile. There’s a different kind of airflow for each coil to maximise your vaping experience. For the 1.2ohm coil you get air holes which let you take it right down to a super tight cigarette like draw. If you’re using the 0.4ohm coil, there’s a slot instead to increase airflow. I found it to be a fairly restricted draw but still airy enough to get some decent clouds and that same great flavour.
Another helpful feature of the Tigon is the drip tips included. Like with the coils and airflow, there’s one included for both mouth to lung vaping and direct to lung vaping. One is more slim like in the Nautilus to funnel the vapour in a more condensed way which gives you the best flavour and less vapour. The other is a more squat, wide bore design for bigger clouds. Aspire really thought of every little detail with this kit.
When it comes to the mechanics of refilling and maintaining the tank, that’s all been well designed too. To refill there’s a child-proof top cap that requires you to click the cap up then press where the droplet is on the tank to slide it open. There’s a tidy little fill port with enough space to get even the chubbiest of gorilla bottles at as well.
The other thing that’s definitely worth noting with this tank is the ease of changing coils. First of all, they’re pull-plug coils meaning you don’t need to unscrew anything. You just need to pull the old coil out and drop a new one in. On top of that, you don’t need to have emptied the tank before you change the coil. The design of this tank has a spring-loaded sleeve that covers the wicking holes in the tank when you open it up at the base. This is a great feature because if your coil suddenly burns out when you’ve just filled up, you won’t waste any e-liquid (and you avoid sticky fingers).
Tigon – yay or nay?
The Tigon is absolutely a “yay” in my books. All in, this vape is a wonderful option for new vapers and frankly anyone looking for an on-the-go kit. The battery life could be a little better (with some pen vapes being up to 3000mAh these days). However, the Tigon will still comfortably last you a long vaping session. The fact you have two drip tips, two airflow settings and two coil options to optimise the tank for both mouth to lung and Sub Ohm vaping is wonderful. If you’re just starting out you could use it with the plus ohm coil then graduate to the 0.4ohm when you’re ready for more clouds. On top of that, this kit is sleek to look at and simple to use.
