Aspire Breeze – Review

Aspire Breeze – Review

The Aspire Breeze

There was a time when MTL (Mouth-To-Lung) devices were merely simple, inadequate and quite honestly clunky. Back in the days of CE5 Tanks and Vision Spinners you could expect to get inconsistent draws, burnt hits and irregular durability. Those times are over, today we’re going to break down the Aspire Breeze and see what makes this little piece of ingenuity tick.

The Breakdown

The breakdown of the Breeze is, well… a breeze. The Aspire Breeze comes with a nifty mouth cap that snaps on to help protect your mouth piece as well as keep dirt and debris out of the holes and chamber. Once removed, you remove the mouth piece (grab on tight and pull). Without too much effort you’re now looking at the chamber (pictured on the right) and the sensor (picture on left). The Sensor allows it to detect when you take a drag off the device, it automatically activates the device and starts vaporizing the liquid inside.

[Pictured Left is the Sensor that activates the auto-draw, Pictured Right is the Chamber where the Vapor is dispersed]


Next go ahead and grab your mouth piece, you’ll notice on the bottom there’s a thin piece of metal that acts as as a tool. That piece of metal fits perfectly into the grooves of the chamber which allow you to unscrew and pull out.


Pictured below is the complete disassembly of the Aspire Breeze, it’s THAT easy.


[The complete breakdown of the Aspire Breeze]


If you grab your box which your Aspire Breeze came in, you’ll notice it was packaged with a few goodies.

Included Are: (2) 0.6Ohm Coils and a USB Charging Cable.

Go on and grab one of the coils from the box. You’ll notice one of the ends of the coil has threads, these threads are made to screw into the bottom of the chamber we talked about earlier.


This creates a tight seal which allows no leaking or gurgling when taking a drag. Pictured below is how the the Coil and Chamber should look after being screwed together. As you can see, one of the major selling points to Aspire’s new device is the COILS. The Wicking port is enormous compared to most MTL devices. This allows your draws to not only be flavorful, but thick as well. Without Flavor and Production, what’s the point in Vaping? A+ to Aspire on these coils.

We’re getting to the final steps, all that’s left to do is fill your tank up with your favorite E-Liquid and Prime your coil.


Filling your Breeze is a piece of cake. The biggest confusion people tend to have when it comes to these All in One MTL devices is where the e-liquid goes. Something just doesn’t seem right pouring e-liquid into a gaping hole placed directly inside an electronic device.. but I assure you, it’s correct. You’ll notice (not pictured) there’s a Red line on the front glass of the tank. This is the max capacity you should fill to. By overfilling you risk the chance of e-liquid pouring over the top of your device and potentially leaking into the REAL electrical components.



The final step before curbing your nicotine infused irritation is to Prime your coil. It’s recommended each time you install a brand new coil, to add a few drops of E-Liquid directly to the cotton on your coil. You’ll notice theirs 3 exposed areas of cotton on these coils. You have a large oval (pictured above) as well as two smaller circular holes. Apply liberally to each exposed area and watch the E-Liquid soak in. Once you’ve liberally coated the cotton, proceed to install the chamber and coil back into the device, the installation is the exact reverse of the disassembly.

Go ahead, you know you want to. Take a puff. One of the nicest additions to the Aspire Breeze is the capability to either use the auto-draw function (simply taking a drag, no buttons to be pressed) or you can utilize the “turbo” feature which involves pressing the button pictured above and taking a drag. The device can be locked by clicking the button (5) times fast, this allows you to carry the device in your pocket or purse without worry that the device will activate on it’s own.


The Aspire Breeze revolutionized the MTL community, they gave the consumers a device they’ve been longing for, a compact quality device that not only represents flavor the way it was bottled, but also allows you to have a great vaping experience!

We carry these at Empire Vape Shop for $29.99 come swing into one of our three shops located in Augusta, Waterville or Bangor.

The Empire Enquirer – Melo 300, Smok & More!

Welcome to the the first edition of The Crown News, your Empire made resource for news in the vaping community and Empire Vape Shop updates!



New Device Alert!

Meet the Melo 300 tank from Eleaf!

          This tank is taking the subohm tank scene by storm, offering a stock, sub-ohm coil capable of 300 watts! Not only can this tank take the power, its pricing is hard to beat ($34.99 at your local Empire shop). While offering 5 packs of replacement coils for pricing at the same price a 3 pack of the TFV8 coils it can also utilize those same coils! They also made the filling port bigger to accommodate for the glass droppers and the twist caps found on many new e-juice bottles. I would most certainly suggest putting a vape band around that big glass enclosure. I’m pretty certain that this top-fill, with a 6.5 mL juice capacity will be a crowd favorite!


The Public Speaks!

“What is your favorite flavor?”


New Flavor Alert!

X-Rated by Excision


         So most of the time when you hear the name Excision, loud womps and hard drops is what comes to mind. In the last couple of months the dubstep artist has created a line of e-liquid! Most recently the Empire shops have received the X-Rated flavor from their line, it is a tart blueberry yogurt whipped up with other wild berries. I had the chance to try this juice at our Bangor location and it is definitely a great blueberry flavor! If you are a fan of fruity, creamy flavors this is definitely worth picking up, $24.99 for a 60mL at your local Empire!


Smok, Masters of Change?

         If you’ve been to a vape shop, you have probably seen a Smok product for sale on their shelf. Smok has been in the game for a long time! They were founded in 2010 and have made incredible leaps and bounds in the vaping industry. Most recently they have made available regulated mods and tanks that have vapor production similar to an RDA and mechanical mods. What this has done is allow someone who wants to experience the cloud chasers lifestyle without having to deal with the mess of dripping, and all the upkeep that comes with building coils and wicking. They were the first to utilize the dual coil cartomizer back in 2011, making a huge leap in vapor production and flavor enjoyment.   

       The latest products from this ever changing company is the TFV12, a tank that can handle upwards of 300 watts of power, and the GX350, a regulated, four battery powered mod that can push 350 watts of power! Smok just seems to be coming out with bigger and more powerful devices. Some jest that they will probably come out with a “TFV32”  that will be 5 inches tall and take 600 watts.

     At this rate I’m not sure if other companies are going to be able to keep up, the way Smok has been  producing new, more powerful and innovative designs is astounding. The future looks very cloudy with this company! I am excited to see what products Smok will come out with next!



FDA Update
