Our Review On The Aspire Pegasus
Note: This mod is no longer available. Please check out the vape mod review pages for w.
I’m very excited today because I want to show you one of the classiest mods I was expecting for the last few months. It’s called the Aspire Pegasus, and it’s the company’s first take on temperature control and stylish mods. The Pegasus also comes as a premium vaping kit called the ‘Odyssey TC Kit’ and it includes the brand new Triton Tank and a fancy, metallic charging dock that takes it to the very next level.
Bought separately, the Aspire Pegasus comes with a good quality orange colored micro-USB cable that’s especially designed to be very durable, and a user’s manual. It’s form factor is quite similar to the Cool Fire 4 from Innokin, slightly bigger and the choice of materials is outstanding. In comparison to the ESP 30W, the Pegasus is an absolute vaping jewel, with a very shiny metallic finish and some stunning chrome insertions on the top and bottom. It comes in three choices of brushed color – slate, brass, and chrome and it has both the ‘Aspire’ and the ‘Pegasus’ names laser etched on the face of the mod.
This device has been particularly engineered to match the Triton Tank in both aesthetics and functionality. Looking at the top we can spot the spring loaded 510 connector, and right under the chrome plate we have a dial that’s used to adjust the settings. It’s also made from metal and it can offer both speed and precision at the same time. On the main side we have the round firing button – that’s very clicky and responsive and the gorgeous OLED display. Right under the display we can see the micro-USB port, for those who don’t want to buy the Odyssey kit or the charging dock separately.
The Aspire Pegasus mod is powered by a single 18650 battery, and to insert it you have to open the spring loaded cap on the base. I have to say I’m really impressed with the mechanism and it works like a charm every time. I highly recommend using one of Aspire’s batteries with the Pegasus, but it’s going to also work with any decent high drain model you might have lying around. The device is a variable wattage mod and it can go from 1.0W all the way up to 70.0W in 1.0W increments with a twist of the dial.
The Aspire Pegasus is also a temperature control mod and it can operate between 200 and 600 degrees Fahrenheit. When you mount a tank or RDA on top that comes with a temperature sensing coil like Nickel or Titanium you have to keep the firing button pressed for about four seconds while the device reads the material and goes from VW mode to TC mode. But keep in mind that for the couple of seconds it fires, the device is not in temperature control mode just yet, so make sure you saturate those coils and wicks with plenty of e-juice to prevent them burning out. After it reads the material you can adjust the temperature via the same rotating dial at the top.
The mod also comes with a variety of safety features like low resistance warning, low battery warning, high temperature protection, show circuit protection and 12s cut-off protection. It can fire down to 0.2 Ohms in VW mode and down to 0.1Ohms in TC mode. You can still vape on the device as it charges and the display has a built in accelerometer that makes the screen flip as you rotate it (just like in the case of smartphones). The display indicates the remaining battery, output voltage, atomizer resistance and current wattage (or current temperature in TC mode).
The build quality on this device is absolutely incredible and it kind of matches the level of attention to details the company puts when creating their tanks. There’s no rattle, everything fits perfectly and the materials used are of the highest quality. Temperature control works great and it allows you to get the maximum vapor at cooler Fahrenheit readings. By far, one of the best gadgets released by Aspire until now.
