Aspire CF Sub Ohm Battery - features
Vaping world gets more exciting with each passing week: endless row of new devices with bells and whistles. However, many of us are more for a non-tinkerer approach to the whole story. We don't want to be bothered with building and rebuilding. Happy to leave it all to enthusiasts.
Our main concerns are safety, availability and, last but not least, simplicity. That's why we appreciate only devices that follow ALL three of these rules. The world of advanced vaping couldn't give us all that in one, so we didn't even bother. Until recently. That's why you'll surely love the Aspire CF sub ohm battery, kindly sent to me by ECigaretteDirect, also known as Smoker's Angel. You can visit them by clicking the banner below.
This battery is compatible with sub ohm tanks (anything between 0.3-1 ohm). Reason I'm repeating this is simple; you don't buy it for your CE4 or EVOD or alike. This battery is to be used with sub ohm tanks. Any other resistance out of the above range may damage the battery and cause malfunction.
Aspire CF sub-ohm battery with a compatible tank you'll see in this review may be your introduction to sub-ohm vaping. If your vaping style can be described as direct lung inhale and if you love the idea of cloud chasing, you'll probably enjoy this Aspire set much more than I have. Although it's a bit weird that someone who strongly prefers mouth to lung vaping writes a review on this device, I assure you that I'll be as impartial as I can.
Aspire CF sub ohm battery is not cheap. However, Aspire made sure that there's no single shred of a doubt when it comes to genuinity. What you see above on its hard cardboard packaging is a holographic sticker, a special 3d anti-fake label to confirm the battery's authenticity. And if it's not enough, every single one has a 20 digit serial number. You'll find it if you scratch the silver surface below the barcode which will enable you to check it on Aspire site.
As you can see in the pic above, this battery doesn't come with its own charger. Good old run-of-the-mill 510 USB charger, yes, the one you've been using with your eGos and EVODs, does its work here quite well so you needn't worry. We tested it at home and it works smoothly.
This battery, 22mm in diameter, was designed to work perfectly with Aspire Atlantis sub ohm tank (link to our review). The sleek design owes much to its carbon fibre surface. I happen to have another 22mm battery (lambo 4.0) and Aspire looks thinner. Not to mention that this type of surface protects itself from scratches. But Aspire CF battery is not just sitting on my desk and looking beautiful plus being nice to touch. There are plenty of features related to its safety, simplicity and performance you'll love.
You turn it battery on and off with a usual quick 5 click.
Aspire CF sub ohm battery has all the safety protections you can think of. At voltage above 4.20V, it automatically stops charging. When its voltage reaches below 3.2, the atomizer stops working and the orange LED light blinks 15 times. Your atomizer coils are also protected from damage - if short circuit occurs the battery defaults to sleep mode. Battery will also go off to protect your charger from such damage if necessary. As you can see, any overheating is successfully prevented.
As to performance, the spring loaded connection guarantees a good contact with your tank.
The rectangular button surrounded by LED light is big enough. Flush with surface, super easy and light – you need less pressing power with it than with EVODs and especially eGos.
How long before charging again? I've been vaping it here and there for whole two weeks and only then did it need charging. However, this occasional vaping says nothing. So it's good to listen to other reviewers who said anywhere from 10 to 12 hours. Still, keep in mind that they are all passionate vapers and many are enthusiast cloud chasers. It is safe to say that one charge of this battery will last you anywhere from 1-2 days depending on how much you vape.
Near the end of its charge this battery varies in voltage; from 4.20 it slowly goes towards 3.5, so the performance may be less glamorous then. I didn't have any problem with that, but some reviewers did.
Everything about this battery is devoted to the ease of use; beside requiring only the USB charger you probably already have, it is an enclosed system with a non-removable rechargeable 2000mAh battery. Be aware that Atlantis also sells its MOD doppelganger that uses 18650 batteries. This one is visually almost identical to our Atlantis CF sub ohm. The only outward difference is MOD's thicker bottom that is actually a stainless steel cover.
