Given both vaporizer’s similarities in looks, many people have been wondering whether the Aspire Breeze 2 is an actual upgrade to the original Aspire Breeze, so I here is a breakdown of both to help you decide whether you would like to upgrade to the Aspire Breeze 2, or just stick to your original Aspire Breeze.
The original Aspire Breeze came out some time ago and has been a staple in many vaper’s routines. It is super portable, super easy to conceal, very discreet and all around just a simple and easy to use vaporizer.
The main features on the Aspire Breeze is the “all in one” type of appeal. The outside is simple and easy to navigate, and there is only one button to turn the device on/off and no other buttons or gadgets.
The Aspire Breeze features a 650 milliamp power battery, which gives quite a nice hit and which seems to last me about a whole day. The battery can easily be recharged via its micro USB, so that’s always a pro on my list. However, because of the curved base it does not stand upright, which is a very tiny con for me. You also can’t stand it upright when charging because the charging port is at the base.
The Breeze comes with two 0.6 Ω coils, but there is the option to purchase 1.0Ω coils separately; letting choose your favourite coil to create the type of vape you like. This vaporizer also features an “auto pull” system which allows you to just take your hits without having to press a button, as long as it’s on. Making it super easy to use.
The Aspire Breeze has an inner pod/tank. Some people will dislike this, and some will prefer it; it really comes down to preference. The tank capacity is 2-millilitres. Some people find may find this a bit small. A nice thing about the tank is you can see how much liquid is in it through a little slit in the side, so that is quite convenient, given that the pod is inside the vaporizer.
The filling process for the Aspire Breeze is, I confess, a bit of a hassle. First, you have to take the mouthpiece off, then you have to unscrew the rod with the metal bar on the mouthpiece, put it to the side, add the e-liquid, then replace both the rod and the mouthpiece before vaping again. The fact that it does not stand upright makes this process even more of a nuisance.
- Choice of Coils (0.6 Ω or 1.0Ω)
- Feels Sturdy and of exceptional quality; especially for the price
- Fits in Pocket/Handbag Easily
- Mouthpiece cover for hygiene
- Only 2ML Capacity
- Pod/Tank is not interchangeable
- Does not stand upright
- Refilling can sometimes be a bit fiddly
Aspire Breeze 2
The Aspire Breeze 2 is quite similar to the Aspire Breeze in many aspects. It is just as portable, easy to use, and discreet. Rather than rambling on, it might be easier to just jump straight to the differences between these two vaporizers.
The first major difference between the Aspire Breeze and the Aspire Breeze 2 is the pod where the e-liquid is stored. The Breeze 2 has a little pod, which boasts a 2-millilitre capacity (TPD Version). This pod can be taken off of the unit itself for reloading, making it easier to load than the original Breeze. You can also purchase multiple pods if you like to have a few different flavours on hand and change them easily.
This pod also allows you to change between the different coils quite easily. Speaking of coils, with the new Breeze 2 also came 2 new coils: a 1.0 Ω coil and a 1.2 Ω coil.
The 0.6Ω coil of Breeze 2 is exactly the same as 0.6ohm of Breeze 1st generation, so there are no problems with interchangeability.
However, for the 1.0Ω coil of Breeze 2, it’s interchangeable with 1.2Ω coil of Breeze 1st generation because they have the same structure, but Aspire does not suggest interchanging between these two. Probably for good reason, many people have complained that their coils burn out really fast when they have tried this.
Another difference between the Aspire Breeze and the Aspire Breeze 2 is the adjustable airflow. The Breeze does not have an adjustable airflow, and many people felt that it really lacked that; since we all have different preferences. So, the Aspire Breeze 2 came with an easily adjusted airflow, and that really made everything much more customizable and much more personalizable in most people’s eyes.
While the adjustable airflow is a great feature, you have to replace the mouthpiece each time to decide the right flow. Meaning, you have to remove the mouthpiece, adjust the airflow ring and then place the mouthpiece back on to test if it is the right amount of flow. It can take a few tries to get it to the right setting.
There is also the fact that the Breeze 2 does not come with the “auto draw” feature, which means that you have to press the power button down every time you want to take a hit. Many people like it, and many people don’t; so if you really liked the “auto draw” feature on the Breeze, I’m sorry to say that the Breeze 2 doesn’t have it.
Finally, the Breeze 2 comes with a larger battery that has a 1000mAh capacity. It definitely lasts longer. While the original Breeze lasted me all day, it was completely done by the end of the day. With the Breeze 2, I still have some charge left at the end of the day. I wouldn’t say that I could go two days in a row without charging it if I am vaping a lot though. The charging port is also now on the side so you can stand it up on its base if you like.
- Sturdy Aluminium Body
- Larger Battery
- Adjustable Air Flow
- Removable Pod makes it easier to fill
- Pod only holds 2ML (TPD Compliance)
- No “Auto Draw” function
- The mouthpiece can be hard to remove at times making it hard to refill the pod
- Each time you want to check the airflow you have to replace the mouthpiece
Now that you have read my small review about both the Aspire Breeze and the Aspire Breeze 2, I hope you feel a bit more informed when it comes to these vaporizers, and I hope it is easier for you to decide whether upgrading is worth it or not.
Normally in these types of reviews, I don’t pick a winner, and I let you decide which one is best for you. I think that I’ll be doing the same for this blog because I can’t personally say that one is better than the other. I like them both for separate reasons. The Breeze has a great mouth to lung hit, while the Breeze 2 has easier to fill interchangeable pods.
But I will say that I really like all the improvements in the new Breeze 2. I feel like the fact that Aspire went on to make a second Breeze says a lot about them, and what they stand for. They obviously took all the comments of their consumers into account when they were making the Aspire Breeze 2, ensuring to incorporate everything the public said the first Aspire Breeze was lacking.
So that’s all I have for you on the Aspire Breeze vs the Aspire Breeze 2. I hope you found this informative and useful, and I hope that you are now able to go about confidently knowing that you will get the perfect vaporizer for you! Please stay tuned to read more blogs and reviews like this one, as I love to compare and review all types of vaporizers!
