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

The Aspire PockeX will appeal to people wanting a no nonsense device.

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.

    2. I got one two months ago and the liquid I use with it its not soaking into the coil took it back to the shop and he gave me a different liquid that is more vicious and a new coil because both that come with it had burnt out when I use it in the shop when I got it back it was fine later that day it did it again I have to unscrew the top a little and then tighten it again to let the liquid through but then it floods the coil don’t know if you have any suggestions as it is getting annoying now as I either get liquid spitting at me or burning using so much liquid as well because of it

  3. I found the instructions very poor had to work it out for myself. Didn’t know until I read on here that you have to leave it 10 minutes to soak up the oil, now my menthol liquid tastes funny, not nice at all, have just drained liquid out and will try again.

  4. Should there be a constant red light while it is charging? Mine has a red LED for 5 minutes, and then it turns off, so I don’t know is it charging now or not?

    1. Hi NBA

      Ideally yes, the light should remain on whilst charging. I would recommend trying another micro USB cable, to see if that’s the issue.

      If not let it run flat and fully charge (2hrs would be plenty), then see if it lasts as long as per usual. If it doesn’t I suggest bringing the item back to one of our stores for further assistance.

  5. According to aspire the coil stays in the top cap when removing for filling hence why the max line is so low and so you can change coils without emptying the tank.
    Cheers J

  6. I’m new to this, as in I just got mine today and it’s my first time using such a device. What do I do if I want to change flavors? Is there a specific way to go about doing it?

    1. Hi Kayrock, it’s simply a matter of filling your tank with a different flavoured e-liquid. I’d recommend using Halo e-liquid, as it’s the right vg-pg ratio for the coil. You can use a different tank or to wash your tank out and leave it dry for 24 hours first if you want to keep the flavours completely separate, but that’s not essential.

      1. i got my Aspire PockeX and washed the coil as i added a different flavor but did not like it,as i am new to Vapouring,so can i just reuse the coul after blowing out any water and making sure its as dry as possible to use straight away or do i have to have 24 hours to dry ?

  7. Hi, just got mine the other day & have just refilled the tank for the first time. I have used a different brand & flavour of e-liquid. My e-cig has now started flooding into the drip tip and it gurgles. I changed the coil and I’m still having the same issues? Does anyone know how to fix this or what I’m doinf wrong? I’m quite new to vaping. Thanks

      1. This was a great tip! I just got the Pockex as a move toward cigarette cessation and wondered why I’ve notice the slightest amount of condensation inside the tip. Had no idea I should start my inhale before hitting the button! I tried it and it actually makes the mouth to lung action feel better, too!

    1. Hi Nicola

      Are you 100% certain that liquid is coming out of the button, and not running down from the bottom of the tank section and finding it’s in to the surrounding gap of the button?

      On the rare occasion the bottom seal can be ever so slightly off centre, allowing a little liquid to seep out and run down the battery. If it is definitely coming out of the button, return it immediately.

      If you bought it in store, and are not 100% sure it’s coming through the button, I would bring it in with the relevant receipt, and our staff members will be happy to assist in rectifying the situation,

  8. I have had a pocket x aspire for over a year my over tank smashed as i dropped it. I have just recently replaced it with another. My new one im having some problems with as it is just tasting of burning all the time. I have changed the coil and prepped it with the second one that came with it and no luck. I have used different liquids and i am starting to think it is my new purchased pipe. Please some one help…

    1. Hi Rebecca, if you do smash the tank there’s no need to get an entire new one – you can find replacement tanks here: https://www.ecigarettedirect.co.uk/pockex-replacement-tube. There’s a number of things which can lead to burning coils including not letting the e-liquid soak in or vaping too heavily (in which case you might need a tank more suitable to heavy vaping) – you can find our guide to resolving burning coils here: https://www.ecigarettedirect.co.uk/ashtray-blog/2016/06/stop-coil-burning.html Hope it helps!

  9. I smashed the glass on my aspire pockex just under a week after buying it. If I return it will I get a new one under the warranty or is it only factory defaults that mean you can get a replacement?

  10. I got one two months ago and the liquid I use with it its not soaking into the coil took it back to the shop and he gave me a different liquid that is more vicious and a new coil because both that come with it had burnt out when I use it in the shop when I got it back it was fine later that day it did it again I have to unscrew the top a little and then tighten it again to let the liquid through but then it floods the coil don’t know if you have any suggestions as it is getting annoying now as I either get liquid spitting at me or burning using so much liquid as well because of it

  11. Yes, this Pockex is great for me now I have adjusted it .. A heavy small cigar smoker .. got some Havana cigar liquid .. plenty nicotine with 50/50 mix and a very close cigar flavour.
    Still, the draw and ‘noise’ put me off somehow … it needed to be really quiet, and I mean quiet, for me to accept it as a substitute.
    I changed to a 1.2 Ohm coil, and put an air adjuster ring around the very narrow air input slot so the draw was more that of the cigars I smoke …. Now it is very quiet, and a direct draw is just right.
    I started by using a narrow strip of masking tape around the air slot and cutting a small gap until it was as I wanted it.
    Might be of use to anybody who wants a substitute ciggy .. obviously not for non inhalers or cloud producers.

  12. Hi,

    I got mine three days ago and just charged it for the first time. Now it is not working even though it is fully charged. When I press the blue button it lights up but then nothing happens. Any ideas what I should do?

    1. Hi Holly, it’s worth checking that the coil is installed correctly and that battery terminal is connecting with the coil. You could also try increasing the power (slowly!) until it works. If that doesn’t work I’d take it to the seller for them to troubleshoot.

  13. Hi I just brought my pockex new and it arrived fully charged which lasted a day now that I’m putting it on charge it stays flashing red for over 5 hours and when I take it off charge after this time of charging its is blue when on and then turns orange? Help please

    1. Hi Samantha. The PockeX has two colour lights for the battery indicator on the button. There’s a second light on the bottom of the device that will glow red or green when your plugged in to a charger. Is it the light on the button or the bottom of the device that is orange after charging?

  14. I have read through some reviews and they all say great for clouds. However mine feels really tight to get a drag out of and doesn’t produce much cloud at all, any suggestions?
