Aspire Announces Its First Digital Mod, the ESP 30 February 27 2015
Update: As of 04/20/2015 the Aspire ESP 30 is In Stock!
The new ESP 30 from Aspire is the manufacturer's first attempt at a digital box mod and based on their history it will be a simple yet great device. What differentiates the ESP 30 from the hundreds of box mods on the market today?
First and foremost, Aspire chose to go with a Lithium Polymer battery rather than an IMR lithium ion cell. The difference between lithium ion and lithium polymer is that polymer is lighter and flat whereas a lithium ion is cylindrical in structure. This will make this mod extremely light and the ESP 30 will feature a capacity of 1900mah. The only downside will be not being able to change the battery at the end of its life.
Next, the ESP 30 will put out up to 30 watts at resistances as low as 0.3 ohms. This is no surprise seeing as Aspire also manufactures what's probably the most popular sub ohm tank on the market, the Atlantis. The wattage will be adjustable from 5 watts to 30 watts via a beefy dial at the top of the mod:
A standard recessed "self-adjusting" 510 thread will accommodate a variety of atomizers and we don't believe they are going to include an Ego adaptor like eLeaf or the Innokin MVP 3. Why would they, seeing as all of Aspire's clearomizers are 510 threaded and almost every RBA / RTA on the market are 510 threaded.
Other than a small OLED display that shows you wattage, voltage, atomizer resistance, and battery capacity there is not much more to this mod. There is USB Passthrough technology, which allows you to vape while the unit is charging, but they put the micro USB input on the bottom which we consider to be inconvenient. Innokin corrected the problem of charging from the bottom on the new MVP, presumably after customers complained about e-liquid spilling all over their desks and countertops. The finish on the ESP 30 will be the highly popular carbon fiber Aspire uses on the CF series batteries and mods.
We expect to have the ESP 30 in stock in early March, and they are expected to retail for around $80 which means you can purchase them from Big D Vapor for around $50 with free shipping. This will be a pretty barebones kit including just the mod and a micro USB in a gift box, but we will put together a premium package with an Atlantis as we did with the CF Sub Ohm Battery combo.
