For today I have a new sub-ohm tank to show you – the Aspire Cleito. Aspire have been on the market for quite some time now and have produced several successful tanks like the Aspire Triton and the Atlantis. With the Cleito, Aspire have managed to come-up with something new, the first thing you will notice with this tank is the fact that the chimney section is the actual coil head. At first I was a bit hesitant about the new design since I thought this will give you a lot of spit-back but I was pleasantly surprised to see that this is not the case.
The coil head in this tank is big with massive juice ports, the design is totally new and the Aspire Cleito coil heads are not compatible with any of the previous Aspire sub-ohm tanks. Before we go into the full review, let’s have a quick look at the box contents and specifications for this sub-ohm tank:
- 1 x Aspire Cleito tank
- 1 x Pyrex spare glass
- 1 x Vape band
- 4 x Rubber cuffs
- 1 x 0.4 Ohm Clapton coil (range 40 – 60 W)
- 1 x 0.2 Ohm Clapton coil (range 55 – 70 W)
- 1 x Warranty Card
- Diameter: 22 mm, 58 mm in height without the drip tip and 510 base
- Pyrex glass tank
- 304 stainless steel construction
- Wide bore Delrin drip tip
- Tank Capacity: 3.5 ml
- 2 airflow holes (9mm by 2mm)
- Top fill design
- Gold plated 510 pin
- Available in 2 colors: black and stainless steel
The materials used in the Aspire Cleito tank are good (304 stainless steel) and the finish is spot on, you won’t see any rough edges or threads and the entire tank came perfectly clean (no machining oil or funny smells).
The tank I have on review is the stainless steel version and so far I haven’t noticed any scratches from the daily wear and tear. I have used this tank daily for over a week or so and didn’t encounter any leaks so far, although there were a couple of times when I have filled the tank with the bottom airflow wide open and would have expected it to leak. The 510 pin is nicely centered and it has made a connection with all my mods, I wouldn’t use this on a mechanical mod since the 510 pin does not protrude well enough and it is not adjustable.
Due to its bottom airflow design you would expect condensation to build up however with the Aspire Cleito this was not the case, I haven’t noticed any condensation even after long periods of use.
I have really enjoyed this tanks during my time with it and one of it’s strong points would be it’s design and simplicity, the coil heads have a nice design, I really enjoy the orange o-rings around them I think this adds a bit of color to the tank and attracts your attention on these. In terms of design, function follows form, the top cap for example has a nice pattern embossed into it so that you can easily unscrew the top cap for filling your tank. On top of the bottom airflow ring you have Aspire embossed and I don’t know, perhaps it was just pure coincidence but regardless of the mod I have been using the logo was always facing the front of the mod, this added a nice touch in terms of the looks and design of the tank. The cuff caps included with the tank were also a nice addition, the purpose of these cuff is to dissipate heat at the top of the tank and for design purposes to match the tank with your mod. You have 4 different colors to choose from (orange, black, red and blue), I have also found these particularly useful when I wanted to remind myself of what e-juice I had in the tank, especially if you are have 2 similar tanks with different e-juices in them. Besides the different rubber cuffs for your top cap you also receive a vape band, the vape band is nice however I am not a huge fan of these but receiving this with the kit is a plus especially for people who enjoy having these on their tanks.
So far I have found this tank to outperform a lot of the sub-ohm tanks I have reviewed before, it produces massive and flavorful clouds. The coil head I have enjoyed the most was the 0.4 Ohms Clapton, as I mentioned before the coil head is huge with big juice ports, the vertical design also helps it with reducing the amount of gunk building up too fast on your coil head. For me the perfect wattage for the 0.4 Ohms Clapton was around 43-45 W, above that the vape was too hot for my liking however the coil heads have performed remarkably even when I have chain vaped, the top of the tank does get a bit warm when you chain vape it however it isn’t something to worry about (with the rubber cuff off the tank).
For me the 0.4 Ohm Clapton was the perfect fit for this tank as it didn’t require a long ramp up time and you could enjoy both worlds, a hotter vape or a cooler one depending on your liking. Concerning airflow control, on this tank you have a lot of airflow – the airflow control gives you the possibility of producing some pretty big clouds and the fact these are full of flavor to me this tank is a definite must have.
The only negative part I have found for this tank was the fact that you cannot change your coils while you still have e-juice in the tank. The only other thing I have found was the fact that you don’t have the option of using your own drip tip, to some extent you can use your own drip tip however it just looks silly since the wide bore drip tip is fixed into place with a couple of o-rings on the protruding top cap.
As I mentioned before, with this sub-ohm tank I have not experienced any spit-back, the tank wicked perfectly and to this day the coil is still going strong after a full week of abuse.
If you are wondering why you should buy this tank I can tell you why. Let’s start off with the way it produces clouds and the fact that you can enjoy a tasteful vape with this tank. Second thing worth mentioning is the fact that it is so simple and light-weighted, the top fill design is easy to use and quick, you can fill it with almost anything (dropper, unicorn bottle, syringe, etc). Third thing would be the price, the price range on this is between 17.99$ to 22.95$ depending on the vendor. Last thing to consider would be the design, for me personally this is a pretty looking little sub-ohm tank that is right up there on top in terms of the performance with the bigger tanks. So if you are on the market for a cheap sub-ohm tank I am telling you this is your tank, you won’t be disappointed – in my case this tank has totally caught me by surprise in terms of the way it performs and it has become one of my daily tanks when I don’t feel like doing a build on something else.
