The Aspire Gusto Mini vape kit is one of the most popular pod vape kits on the market. It combines a large battery, compact frame and access to a wide range of flavours - without the hassle of constant maintenance. Designed by Aspire, this kit uses specially designed prefilled e-liquid pods (sold separately) from e-liquid giants, including Element, Nasty Juice and Vampire Vape.
Just because the Gusto is small in size, doesn’t mean it can’t perform. For example, the built-in 900mAh battery can offer up to a full day of vaping between charges. The device itself has been designed for traditional mouth to lung vaping, but also produces enough vapour for a semi-direct to lung vape. The single button not only activates the device, but also locks it - this a simple system deal for new vapers, and experienced ones looking for a stripped-back experience.
Gusto e-liquid pods arrive prefilled with 2ml of e-liquid that use salt nicotine, this ensures a smooth throat hit and will satisfy your cravings faster. Once empty, these pods can be disposed of and replaced, so there's no messy refilling or coil changes involved. With such a large range of flavours available, there's probably one that will suit your taste, take your pick from, tobacco, fruit, menthol, dessert, candy, pastry and cream blends. You can also choose either a 10mg or 20mg nicotine concentration, to complement your style.
Overall, despite its simple design, the Aspire Gusto pod kit is incredibly versatile, offering users of all experience levels a reliable and customisable vape kit, that's small and light enough to use wherever they go.

The device itself is faultless, and super pocket friendly, but the juice filled pods work out to be kind of expensive. If you are a light MTL user, it may be bearable, but for a heavy user, there are better options out there.

5 star product
Great little vape but the refills are very expensive considering you only get 2ml fluid so costs almost as much a smoking roll ups. Great if you’re out and about and want a small easy to refill unit but not ideal as full time vape
Great product at great price perfect for beginners very simple to use
By Madcaz from London
Not my main pod but one of in my collection that gets good usage.
This is a very well made pod, great flavour and power.
Not my go too but not shelved like 80% of my collection.
There's better out there but in this style its a very good pod.
I brought this as a back up when my mod is charging and handy at work when you can’t use a mod it doesn’t leak and it’s clean and easy to use I think the pods are a bit over priced for what they are
By Goggs from Scotland
So impressed with this, purchased it for covid lockdown period and really pleased. Was getting fed up having to build coils for my dripper or buy coils for my tanks so being able to just throw a pod in is a huge benefit. The cloud is better than it has any right to be, the flavour is excellent. You don't buy this style of device for massive clouds and a battery that lasts a week, but this manages to do a lot of things really well in a super convenient package. Great job from aspire and element.

I like this because it doesn’t leak and its compact shape means I can sneak it into work in my pocket! Also the wide range of flavours are great. It’s not meant for chain vaping as others have noted. The pods don’t really last that long but for me it’s a nice little device to take a crafty toke or two, not to sit and relax with like the bigger mods. So far it hasn’t leaked a drop and I’m very pleased with it.

Excellent does not leak and great for work

I brought this product after using a Cigarette Style Pod Mod because i felt like i needed more flavour and a better hit, this does the job well, it is abit on the looser side for a MTL but does the job and produces a nice flavour and a nice amount of vapour it is probably suited more towards a tighter lung hit but does the job well for a looser MTL, this is also a really nice size i cant really fault it

I actually ended up buying a second one. It's compact, light, discreet, & as much as I've not noticed much difference in the nic salt vs regular nic effect, it does what I need it to. Having vaped pretty on much everything from the original carts with their tiny little batteries back in the day, to my own builds on mechs, series & lipo boxes over the last 12yrs, my last pregnancy had me craving actual cigarettes & I had to change the way I vaped. I tried everything to suit my altering tastes & really struggled to find any pod system that satisfied my needs, until this little gem. I acquired numerous pod systems over the months during & post pregnancy to keep me off the cigs, but this one is now my firm go to. I just wish Vape Club carried all the pod flavour/brand options.
Let's start with the positives....cheap price, nice little size that's easy to carry around and easy to just change over the pods, eliminating mess and need for separate coils and juice but...and here's the negatives..the pods cost a bomb and last a day if that. Also they are not even recyclable so more plastic for the rubbish tip! It is possible to refill them but not repeatedly as the coil burns out like any other. Reviews all say you will use it less because of the salt pods but I've found it no different at all so I'm going back to my old one. It will be cheaper for coils and juice too.
Bought this based on the glowing reviews on here. I don't know what's going on with those but they seem either biased or just plain wrong in my opinion!
The flavour and hit of this is good, but I can't say that nic salt pods provide a much different experience to the many MTL vapes I've owned before.
This is the real kicker though, the pods are an absolute scam, don't listen to people saying they last ages, I go through 2 pods a day and that's me really trying to limit how much I vape, so it's currently working out at £50+ per week... and they say vaping is the cheaper alternative...
Some people say you can refill the pods but I don't believe it, I've bought 4 sets of needle nose tweezers to try and refill these pods and every time, without fail, the little plastic bung gets pushed into the pod, rendering it unusable.
Honestly save your money and DON'T believe some of the reviews on here.... seriously questioning the legitmacy of some...

I've tried vaping before with the VG based pen type devices - Vaporiz, Blu, etc. The damn things wouldn't stand up, and leaked like sieves! Trying to draw through them was more like trying to get the last bit of milkshake through a straw. Gave up, threw them in the bin and went back to smoking 30-40 a day.
I was tempted into a Gusto Mini, and haven't felt the need to light a regular cigarette up for a while now. When I did, I felt like my mouth was full of embers.
I'm using 555 tobacco as I actually like the taste of tobacco and smoking a strawberry isn't my thing. I get a perfectly matched throat hit, and nicotine delivery is near-instant.
Whilst pricey for pods, it's still a vast amount cheaper than regular smoking. Sure, the pen type VG based vaping is cheaper, but it's not even close to ideal. It's why I use Gillette razors vs BIC - fit for purpose isn't cheap, and cheap generally isn't fit for purpose.

As many other reviewers have stated it is great. The difference I find between this kit and the Hexa and Mylo is the gusto gives a big throat hit . Oh and really let the coil soak for 10 minutes before you even think about taking a vape. ...only draw back i have found.
By Cloudy from Stoke-on-Trent
I searched the Vapeclub kits for a while trying to determine which little kit I should get, to use when in the office at work. After iffing and rrring and watching as many YouTube reviews as possible I settled on the Aspire Gusto Mini kit.
I've been vaping for 6 years now, but I haven't heard much of Nic Salts before and seeing the price for just 6mls and considering how fast I get through eliquids on my sub-ohm setups, I was a little concerned I would blow through these way to fast. I'm extremely happy this is not the case, the Ns20 pods which fit in the Gusto Mini contains 2ml of Nic Salt liquid at your choose of 5mg, 12mg or 20mg, I opted for 20mg, once the pod is inserted into the device you should give it 5 to 10 minutes before your first vape to allow the liquid to soak into the coil to avoid dry burn. Once soaked I took a couple of tokes and got a pretty instant nicotine hit, luckily I was sitting down at the time, however it was akin to the real thing and I found I didn't need to vape again for over an hour later. This is good for me as I'm abit of a chain vaper, I am now on day 2 and I am still quite a way off finishing the first 2ml pod which as an added bonus can be refilled with a lot more then 2ml as soon as the original liquid is depleted.
The device itself feels great in the hand, the pictures on the site don't do it justice, it's looks and feels very nice, not cheap in anyway, so at £19.99 I feel this is absolute steal. I think they my be aiming it at the beginners but I feel this is a great addition to any advance vapers collection, if to want a stealthy vape which delivers a nice tasting nic salt eliquid (although you can use normal freebase nic liquid) you can't go wrong with the Aspire Gusto Mini

Simply Put... if you want to quit smoking.. then this is your device.. completely emulates a ciggarette without the cigggarette.. absolute innovation! My fav pod with the Gusto, Honey Roasted Tobacco.. A Must Have!
By Ree from Wrexham
Received this earlier today and its 100% top quality. Has a beautiful smooth draw and a good strong throat hit :) Its smooth not harsh and really replicates smoking! this is an epic little kit and I recommend to all those that miss a cigarette. Simple, compact, an absolute stunner, no messy eliquid, just pop in a pod, let it soak and vape! tastes great every time. Also first class service, packaging and delivery from Vapeclub! im a converter customer! buying from here from now on :)

I had been trying to find the best vaping system for me for over a year and had tried different ones until I discovered the Aspire Gusto Mini.
I can honestly say it is my favourite and here's why:
1- it is small and fits in my hand, jeans pockets and takes absolutely no room in my handbag
2- the pod system means no mess with filling up with juice and no need for replacement coils
3- zero leakage even when it is on its side
4- perfect taste every time
5- no fussing with wattage as the delivery is always spot on and is very similar to a regular cigarette
6- no throat hit like some juices do
7- awesome flavours!
8- small price for the machine
9- the pods are small and it's easy to carry them around for replacement when the previous one runs out. It takes 5 seconds to replace the pod and is easy and secure.
10- no spitting in the mouth on the first few draws like my previous juice tanks used to!
I used to smoke menthol cigarettes so when I switched to this I went with the menthol flavour. This helped me kicked the habit without any difficulty despite having been a 20-a-day smoker for years.
After a couple of months I decided to experiment new flavours and tried the strawberry whip. I have been using this flavour now for months and have no desire to try any other. It has a smooth flavour and makes me feel like I'm having a dessert with every draw.
I have recommended this product to some of my friends and would highly recommend it to any of you who are still looking for their smoking replacement system.
If I had to give it a negative, it would be on the price of the pods. I tend to use one pod a day which makes it much more expensive than your average bottle of juice, but for me it's worth spending the money as I have the assurance that I will get the same experience at every draw.
I couldn't recommend this little gem enough.
Bought one of these 2 weeks ago.
I was using the Limitless Pulse but got fed up with it leaking all the time and the battery dying way too fast (I had it for quite a while so I was expecting battery fade.)
This thing is in a completely different league.
I mean.. yes, the pods are on the expensive side. But if you want to give up the ciggies then the aspire can not be beaten.
The vape is smooth, tasty and just the right kick in the throat. The draw is a bit loose for me, but if you cover the opening on the side it tightens it up just right. ("CLOSE THE POD BAY DOORS HAL")
I have just placed an order for another one to help my brother ditch the death sticks.
