Today we're going to be looking at the Aspire Breeze NXT: the newest edition to Canada for the ever-popular Aspire Breeze family.
If you're not familiar with the Breeze family, Aspire launched their first generation of Breeze devices in the Summer of 2017. The original Breeze device was one of the first launches of an AIO (all-in-one) device that captured a lot of user attention, specifically across Alberta and Ontario. For people looking for smaller devices that still allowed for all-day general use (think office life and out-of-town convenience), the Breeze knocked it out of the park. In fact, the device was so popular that it didn't receive a re-vamp for almost a year after the initial release.
Enter the Breeze 2, released in the Spring of 2018. The Breeze 2 introduced AIO devices to the almost ubiquitous pod and coil format we see now in most AIO devices from other brands—like the Smok Nord. With a larger battery, more e-liquid capacity, and a removable pod and coil for easier filling and handling, the Breeze 2 was infinitely more popular than the original unit, while still maintaining cross-compatibility with coils from the original Breeze, as well as other features users generally enjoyed. What really made the Breeze 2 stand out was the pod style of the unit, which allowed the user to not only have multiple pods for their needs, it also made the unit easier to handle and fill, in comparison to the original. Aspire has always maintained a,“if it's not broke, don't fix it,” style to their hardware, which works well across not only their smaller AIO devices, but also their sub-ohm devices and tanks (most notably the Cleito and Nautilus tanks, which have seen very little in design changes and functionality, and are still some of the most widely used units across users of all experience levels). Aspire is able to listen to feedback from their users, and adjust accordingly in a way that satisfies everyone's design preferences.
So now, in 2019, we have the Breeze NXT. Again, another year between the Breeze 2 and Breeze NXT means that Aspire listened to the critiques of the original Breeze and Breeze 2 and adjusted accordingly.
With other product launches introducing AIO devices with Mesh coils, Aspire pivoted accordingly with their all-new Mesh 0.8-ohm coil for the Breeze NXT. While not being cross-compatible with the other members of its family, the Breeze NXT coils do offer an increased benefit to all style of users. The 0.8-ohm Mesh coils are able to handle both Regular and Salt Nicotine e-liquids with ease, with flavor and cloud production being equally balanced. They kept with their increased battery size, matching the Breeze 2's 1000mAh battery capacity, which means longer user time between charges. The shape and size of the Breeze NXT are equally comparable to the Original and Breeze 2, making it an on-the-go friendly unit for users.
What's most notably different between the Breeze NXT and the Breeze 2 is the pod and coil format. The original Breeze 2 offered removable coils and pods with a top coil installation from the pods' mouthpiece. Admittedly this was tricky, we're not going to sugar coat it. One of the biggest complaints from the Breeze 2 was the clips that held the pod in place could be broken easily if the pod was not ejected correctly, as well as mouthpiece being difficult to remove for easy coil installation and changes. For older users, or for people on the go, this was a nightmare. The Breeze NXT removed that problem from the equation completely: no more clips for pod installation or ejection as the pod is now fit snug into the battery base, and the coils are now placed at the bottom of the pod, making changing them much easier. The pod itself boasts a 5.4mL e-liquid capacity, making it one of the largest pods on the market.
Another difference is that the Breeze NXT also offers auto-draw as well as button firing, making it more versatile in its functionality (This feature has since been removed since the original posting of this blog). Lastly, another complaint about the original Breeze as well as the Breeze 2 was its airflow. Some users loved it, some really hated it. The Breeze NXT offers an easier adjustable airflow slide on its side, so the user can set it to their individual preference, which is really what this is all about.
So that's the Breeze NXT in a nut-shell. A highly adaptable little unit that packs a punch no matter what the end-user is looking for. It's formidable, versatile, and ready to perform during daily use or as a travel unit.
