The latest iteration of Aspire's venerable Nautilus tank; the Nautilus X is a great upgrade for a beginner from a more basic device. The Nautilus X takes its innovations from the well-regarded Cleito tank and distils them down to a user-friendly and easy to use package.
Featuring Aspire's U-tech coil technology that improves airflow and flavour performance, it also improves on the excellent mouth-to-lung performance that the original Nautilus is known and loved for.
The Nautilus X is ideally vaped between 14 and 20 watts.

Began vaping a year ago and used this tank throughout. I have nothing to compare it to (except for the odd minute long tries) but however for other beginners i’d highly recommend it. It’s easy to use, the experience of inhaling the vapour is almost akin to inhaling a plume of smoke from a cigarette rather than higher sub ohm equipment which made me feel I was being gassed, choke choke.
I’ve found it very easy to live with, I can’t tell whether flavour is better or worse than other tanks but I vape 100% VG and have had no problems. I do find for a beginner like me, the clouds are more than enough, I don’t care one way or the other, I want flavour and the feel of vapour in the mouth like exhaling smoke which I get. I also get clouds big enough to make it look like a fog has descended into the room on sunny days, which means nothing to me except obscuring the tv screen on occasion, irritating but I know considered a plus by many, specially when the programme is less than scintillating.
The .5 coils leave me feeling gassed, too much so I use the .8 which are easier going and more like the smoking experience. Though I am not bothered about replicating that anymore, vaping is more pleasurable I realise. This tank has made me realise.
If like me you haven’t a clue and are new to vaping, give this a go, it really has been excellent for me.

Had this tank over a year now and despite reviews to the contrary my very first impressions were that my favourite juices didn't seem as flavourful in this tank and the supplied 1.5 Ohm coil.
However, I started using 1.8 Ohm coils and found an improvement. My juices are all 50/50.
I bought a tank extender glass taking it to 5ml and tend to vape 1 tank per day. Coils last around 3 to 4 weeks set at 14.5 watts.
After topping up it pops and crackles a little for the first 10 mins or so, not sure why, but after this its perfect.
The best thing about it for me is that this tank never leaks....ever.
Definitely only suitable for Mouth to Lung vapers.
Really nice little tank! Definetly the best aspire tank I tried so far. I highly recommend it to people that recently stopped smoking. I have it for almost 2 months now and never had any issues with it.
The best tank I've tried so far. Excellent flavour and vapour production. No leaks, spitting, flooding or any other problems. Easy to live with. Can't really fault it...if you like MTL I'd definitely recommend it.

Nice small tank, great airflow option range, works great with 50/50 e liquid. my only gripe so far is the drip tip can get a little hot. but great flavor, plenty of vapor and easy to fill,

I've been looking for "the tank". You know, that one that you try and just think WOW.
Well, I think this could be it.
Build is good, airflow I like (many don't as it's pretty small), coils are exceptionally good and not a squeak of a leak.
Only issue I have with the design is that it's probably best to keep juice above the coil wick to ensure no burn out- however due to the size of the wick aperture, this means opening and refilling all the time. THink I'll buy the 4ml expansion kit as I'm really loving this so far.

All the tanks I've owned over the years... the X is the only one not to flood the coils when I take it out with me to work.
No spitting, no flooding.
The airflow setting is not easy to see, and you should (but don't really have to) empty the tank to change the coil.
But for the sheer day to day performance of the tank it's a solid 5 stars from me.

Firstly, forget this if you're *not* a MTL vaper.
This is a tiny tank, even with the extension kit (totally recommended, and ups it to 4ml capacity), it's about the same height as most other tanks. it's really well made, simple to fill, and genuinely leak free - nothing has leaked at all in 4 months of abuse.
I don't understand complaints about the airflow control - it's tiny, yes, but this just means you can't accidentally move it. it's a nice draw fully open (remember, MTL!) and can be closed right down.
Flavour. I've compared this directly to a Nautilus mini, and can honestly say, the X is just as good. BUT, the 1.5 ohm coils are dire. stick to the 1.8 coils at around 14W. Perfect.
No problems at all with 70% vg.
So, Small, great flavour on the 1.8 coils, and I'm getting a solid 2-3 weeks from the coils, at about 5ml a day.
100% recommended, especially with the extension kit, which also cools the vape down a little; the only complaint I'd have is that it's a little hot with the 2ml setup.

Bought this tank because nearly every other tank on the market is sub-ohm.
Perfect for new vapers, casual vaper, people trying to quit smoking and people like me who dont want to blow the biggest clouds possible.
New U shaped atomizer design seems logical and well designed, two internal coils give you good vapour production and flavour while the U shape of air flow reduce chance of leakage or spitting. This atomizer was advertised as 'leak proof' and it seems to do the jobs but can still get build up in the mouth piece after heavy usage.
TIP: make sure you prime new atomizers before use by dabbing a few drops of juice on each side of cotton. Coils should last about 2-3 weeks.
I dont like how the 'top-fill' loading works, if the atomizer isnt properly screwed into the base then when you twist the top of the tank off it can unscrew the atomizer from the base and cause juice to flow into the connection, making a real mess. If you unscrew carefully this doesnt seem to happen very often.
Top air flow seems to work nicely, no blockages or leaks.
2ML tank capacity is not great but we will blame that on the new TPD regs. (i understand there is an extension kit that increase to 4 or 5 ML)
Been using this between 15-20W (depending on juice) on a 1.5ohm coil and it gives great flavour and cloud production.
Overall i would definitely recommend this tank, its hardly perfect but its consistent and efficient. Great mouth to lung device.
Also, a rubber mouth piece would be nice, hard plastic sometimes hits your teeth :)

This tank is great for me, the flavour is great and the design is fantastic. Having said that, the new pockex from aspire has much better coils. They are 0.6 ohm and should definitely have been made for this tank originally. They are an exact match with the nautilus x tank. So everybody who isn't sure about this tank, go and get some pockex coils to go in it. 4 stars just for not making the right coils for the right tank
