The Aspire Zelos 3 is a versatile, intelligent mod with an integrated ASP chipset offering a choice of 6 different vaping modes to give users versatility and control. The 6 modes include; Variable Voltage, Variable Wattage, TC, TCR, CPS and Bypass modes (See more about these modes in the FAQs below.)
The Zelos 3 can output up to 80W of variable power and features a long-lasting 3200mAh internal battery that should last most users a full day of use per charge. When the battery does run low the USB-C charging design means the device is quickly recharged and ready to use again.
To keep users in control of the device, the Zelos 3 has a 0.96” TFT colour screen displaying important data including wattage, battery life and puff counter. The screen benefits from adjustable brightness and a choice of 5 colour options.
The Zelos 3 kit includes a 2ml Aspire Nautilus 3 tank and Nautilus coils. The Nautilus 3 tank benefits from convenient top filling and leak-free coil change design.
The choice of Aspire Nautilus coils means the Nautilus 3 tank supports both Mouth-to-Lung and Direct-Lung vaping styles (see more in the FAQs below). The tank features 7 different sized airflow holes which allow users to adjust their airflow between an airier or more restricted vape depending on their preferences.
As well as the included Nautilus tank, the Zelos 3 can be paired with a wide range of other tanks thanks to its 510 threaded connection. This allows users to benefit from all of the Zelos 3’s features while also using other tanks, coils and e-liquids.
COMPATIBLE COILS & E-LIQUIDS
The included Nautilus 3 tank can be used with both VG:PG 50:50 e-liquid and high VG e-liquid.
The Nautilus 3 tank is compatible with Aspire Nautilus coils.
- 50:50 e-liquid: Use 1.8Ω (included) or 1.6Ω Nautilus coils
- High VG e-liquid: Use 0.7Ω coil (included) or 0.4Ω coil (not included)
- Nautilus BVC 1.8Ω Mesh Coil: 10 - 14W
- Nautilus 2S 0.7Ω Mesh Coil: 20 - 25W
WHO IS THE ASPIRE ZELOS 3 KIT FOR?
The Aspire Zelos 3 kit is suited to intermediate to advanced vapers who are looking for full control over their vaping and want a choice of vaping styles.
What is Bypass Mode?
Bypass power delivers the full power of the battery to the coil without being moderated by the chipset. This means power output will be higher when the battery is fully charged and lower as the battery level drops. See Advanced Vaping Modes for more information.
What does Temperature Control (TC) Mode mean?
In VW mode, the resistance of the coil can change as the coil heats up. In Temperature Control mode, you set the resistance of your coil. The mod uses the resistance of the coil to detect any change in temperature. The mod will adjust or maintain power to keep consistency in resistance, and therefore temperature. This leads to a more consistent flavour profile and can also extend the life of the coil you are using.
What is Custom Power Settings (CPS) mode?
Custom Power Settings allow you to set the wattage and power curve of the device you are using. For example, you might choose to start a vape at 50 watts and then drop it to 40 watts. Once set, you can then save the setting so you can go back to it. See Custom Power Curves in Advanced Vaping Modes for more information.
Can I charge my Aspire Zelos 3 overnight?
Lithium batteries should not be left unattended when charging. It is also important to use an appropriate charger, such as the Veho Plug Adaptor. For more information see our battery safety infographic.
Can you wash a Nautilus 3 tank?
Yes. Remove the tank from the device, and empty out any e-liquid. Wash the tank out with warm (not boiling) water. Ensure the tank is fully dry before using it again.
You can also clean the connections out with cotton to remove dust.
How long does the coil last?
Coil life depends on many factors, including how long you puff for, the e-liquid you use and the wattage you use your coil at. Low resistance coils, which are used at higher wattages, will not last as long as high resistance coils.
You can extend coil life by:
- Priming the coil before usage
- Using e-liquid with the right VG:PG ratios
- Not going above the recommended wattage
- Topping up your tank so that the coil never dries out
With care, the included 0.7Ω coil should last several days while the 1.8Ω coil should last around a week or more.
What is the difference between Mouth-to-Lung (MTL) and Direct-Lung (DL) vaping?
In Mouth-to-Lung vaping you inhale vapour and hold it in your mouth for a moment before inhaling again for the vapour to reach your lungs. In Direct-Lung vaping you inhale in one continuous breath into your lungs. See MTL v DL for more information.

Using Your Tank: Best Practice
Follow these simple steps to get the most out of your tank.
- When filling, always avoid getting e-liquid in the centre tube.
- Don’t hold down the button before inhaling.
- When attaching the coil, screw it in firmly but don’t over-tighten.
- Make sure you use the right power settings. If unsure, check the manual or start with a low power setting and work your way up till you get the right hit.
The Right and Wrong Ways to Treat Batteries!
Battery Safety Information
- Ensure you use the correct charging equipment for your e-cig (see below).
- Charge batteries on a hard surface.
- Turn your battery off when not in use.
- Use damaged batteries.
- Leave charging batteries unattended.
- Allow contact between your batteries and water.
- Carry in a pocket with coins or keys. (The Kbag is a great way to carry batteries securely and safely).
- Expose your battery to sunlight, extreme heat or cold.
For more information see our E-Cig Battery Safety Infographic.
Recommended Charging Equipment
We recommend the Veho Plug Adaptor and the Nitecore Intelli charger (for external batteries). Both are high quality devices from a reputable manufacturer, have performed well in testing and have the right voltage output for e-cigs.
Extending Your E-Cig Battery Life
With regular usage, your e-cig battery will usually last for 3 months, although they can last longer. The following steps can help extend the life of your battery
- Cleaning your battery terminal. The most effective way to do this is to use a cotton swab soaked in alcohol, but you can also clean it with a tissue or a cotton swab.
- Keeping your battery charged. Keeping some charge in your battery can extend your battery life, especially if you go for some time without using it.
How To Maximise the Life Of Your Coils
Always allow your e-liquid to soak into your coil for at least five minutes before using it. This will help prevent your coil from burning out.
When you have a more powerful coil, or one with more wicking material, it’s also a good idea to prime it by applying a few drops of e-liquid into the coil holes before filling.
Once you’re using the device, it is important to keep your tank topped up. If the e-liquid gets too low and the coil is exposed, the coil can burn out.
