Aspire PockeX – Review and Tutorial

At a Glance

The PockeX is a super simple and compact device that is easy to use.

It features an innovative top coil swap system which makes filling a doddle.

A powerful 1500mAh internal battery combined with low resistance 0.6ohm coils mean that the PockeX can produce lots of flavour and vapour.

In this post, you’ll find out how to use the Aspire PockeX, as well as what we like and don’t like about it.

Available today for £24.99

Design

The Aspire PockeX is a compact device. Measuring at just 117mm (L) x 19.7mm (H), it’s shorter than most smartphones.

The coil screws straight into the top of the battery, with the tank and mouthpiece fitting on top.

No new shapes here, the PockeX takes the simple and proven cylinder form along with a well placed tactile firing button. Charging is handled at the bottom of the device by micro usb.

Functionality

The Basics

The Aspire PockeX uses the tried and tested on-button-operation and is super easy to use.

You can do 2 things with the fire button. Fire the device, and lock the device. There’s not a lot to get wrong!

There is a 10 second auto cut off which stops the battery for firing for more than 10 seconds at a time.

You can use the PockeX in passthrough mode, but you won’t be able to stand it on it’s base while you charge.

Changing the Coil

  1. Unscrew the top cap.
  2. Unscrew the coil and remove from the tank.
  3. Screw a new coil into the tank.
  4. Refit the top cap.
  5. Wait for 5-10 minutes for the wick to soak up e-liquid.

After you’ve changed the coil, do not over tighten the top cap. If the top cap is too tight, when you remove it to refill the tank, the coil can unscrew as well.

What Aspire won’t tell you is that the PockeX is compatible with Nautilus X coils

Refilling

Filling the Aspire PockeX is super easy. Simple remove the top cap assembly and you’ve got access to the tank. Once open, fill the tank to the max line on the outside of the tank. The max level mark is quite small and can be missed. It’s next to the viewing window on the painted section of the tank.

Locking and unlocking

To lock or unlock the PockeX, press the fire button 5 times. The fire button will flash 3 times to indicate when the device is locked or unlocked.

Battery charge level indication

When using the PockeX, the fire button will change colour depending how much battery life you have left.

  • Blue: Over 30% power remaining
  • Red: Less than 30% power remaining

Airflow

Airflow on the PockeX is fixed. We’re big fans of adjustable airflow but by doing away with adjustment, Aspire have managed to keep the PockeX super compact. The airflow is medium and suitable for direct to lung inhales or loose mouth to lung inhales.

Compatibility

The Aspire PockeX works really well with the PockeX in black, or rose gold…
Yes, this sounds a bit silly, but the PockeX is designed as an all-in-one solution and is not compatible with other batteries.

Works with Aspire Nautilus coils

However, what Aspire have not mentioned in their launch material is that the Aspire Pockex is compatible with the Aspire Nautilus X coils. The PockeX comes fitted with a 0.6ohm mouth to lung coil and a spare. For mouth breathers, being able to fit 1.6ohm Nautilus X coils is a comforting relief. Please note that although it works, for the best experience with the PockeX use the included 0.6ohm coils.

Summary

What We Like:

  • Compact design
  • Easy leak free filling
  • Drainless coil swapping

What we don’t like:

  • Slight rattle from firing button

The Aspire PockeX is available on ECigaretteDirect for £24.99

  1. Hi guys just received my aspire Pockex first attempt from the traditional E cig that I have been using for many years. So far so good the look and feel is great and I have already worked out that it is very cost effective. Many thanks for introducing me to this kind of vaping.

  2. Help! I just bought this for my boyfriend and it seems to not be vaporizing? Also it makes a gargling sound when you hit the fire button.

    1. Hello Laken

      The gargling is caused by a flooded wick. Excess liquid has entered the atomiser head, and blocks the pathway for the vapour and inhibits vapourisation.

      If your boyfriend flicks the worst out, then takes a few gentle draws, it should clear right up.
