Aspire Cleito 120 in Box

The Aspire Cleito 120: Review + Tutorial

The original Cleito was a real game changer – the first tank to combine the chimney (or center tube) with the atomiser.

The result?

Massive clouds of vapour with a very easy to use tank system.

The new Aspire Cleito 120 builds upon the success of the original, but is aimed at vapers using high powered devices to produce even more vapour. The tank is rated to 120 watts, but Aspire claims the tank can handle up to 160 watts.

Who Is The Cleito 120 For?

The Cleito 120 is ideal for vapers looking to maximise vapour production and flavour while running high powered devices.

Although rated at 120w max, hence the name, Aspire themselves say it can easily run up to 160w and more. However, be careful as the higher you go the more likely you are to burn a coil.

If you decide to run it at a higher wattage, our advice would be to run a new coil between the recommended wattages for a tank or two of e-liquid, then push the power up further in small increments.


The Cleito 120 atomiser heads are an improvement over the original coils, but unfortunately are only compatible with the Aspire Cleito 120.

How To Fill The Cleito 120

Cleito 120 FillingThe top fill mechanism on the 120 version is slightly different to the original Aspire.

Cleito 120 Filling Top ViewWith the original Cleito, the top came fully off, meaning it had to be upright to be filled. This often lead to the coil coming unscrewed at the time as it had the same thread direction. The 120 comes with a two-piece construction allowing you to remove the upper section, leaving a smaller (though still ample), cleaner filling hole and putting an end to spilled e-liquid!

How To Change The Coil

Cleito Coil Change

  • Empty the tank of e-liquid.
  • Unscrew the top section.
  • Remove the glass tank.
  • Unscrew the coil from the base.
  • Screw in the new coil, giving a half turn anti-clockwise to ensure threading is correct.


Cleito Half FullTopping Up

The wicking holes extend half the height of the chimney, and the e-liquid is vaporised quickly. So we recommend ensuring the Cleito is always at least half-way filled up to minimise the risk of burnt coils.

Cleito 120 Coil PrimePriming

Priming is important with all tanks, but particularly important with high powered tanks like the Cleito 120. Drip e-liquid onto the wicking holes before usage, and allow the tank to stand after filling for at least five minutes before using – see the video below for a detailed guide.

What We Like…

  • Massive vapour production
  • Great flavour
  • Simple design
  • Coils fire higher than rated
  • Improved filling system over the standard Cleito

What We Don’t Like

  • Only compatible with high powered devices
  • Drinks e-liquid (as all high powered tanks do).
  • Glass tank can be tricky to remove when changing the coil

Cleito Box and Tank


If you’re looking to go further in the search for power, the Cleito 120 is certainly an excellent tank.

The improved coil, combined with that power, means it also delivers a fuller, cleaner flavour too. If you’ve got a device that can run it (such as the Coolfire TC100), it’s well worth the investment!
