Futuristic Design in a Compact Body – that’s Aspire Gotek X

Do you enjoy vaping on the go? Then we surely agree that such a vape kit should be as small and practical as possible. The Aspire Gotek X undoubtedly meets these criteria, with dimensions of 81.5 x 47.6 x 19.8 mm, making it comfortably fit into the category of “pocket pods”.

It stands out not only with its size but also with its well-thought-out futuristic design. The entire body is transparent, allowing you to see what’s happening inside at all times. This elevates the vaping experience to a new level. Moreover, you can easily match the vape with your outfit, as it is available in up to 10 different colors.

No Adjustments, Just Pure Joy

The clean design extends to its hassle-free functionality and ease of use. The Aspire Gotek X doesn’t have any buttons but comes with an integrated intelligent chip that controls airflow, triggering heating automatically, so you don’t have to worry about anything. In this sense, the pod is not extraordinary; its goal is to mimic the experience of smoking a traditional cigarette as closely as possible.

The device includes a simple air intake regulator in the form of a slider. With this, you can choose your vaping style – if you want more vapor, simply slide it open to increase airflow. Conversely, if you prefer less vapor, you can narrow the opening.

MTL or RDL? Why Not Both?

The Aspire Gotek X can be confidently categorized among pure POD systems. The reason is its refillable cartridge, which is connected to both the heating mesh and the wicking material. This system is primarily targeted at beginners in vaping and those who don’t find assembling heating coils enjoyable or doable.

By the way, the cartridge itself has a capacity of 4.5 ml, so it holds enough liquid for a substantial amount of vaping. Replacement cartridges are sold in packs of two, allowing you to have them filled with different liquids simultaneously and switch them out according to your taste or mood.

Good news for vapor lovers: the Aspire Gotek X uses a heating mesh (mesh coil) with a resistance of 0.8 ohms and a larger evaporating surface than a traditional coil. This allows the e-cigarette to be used in two ways – MTL (Mouth To Lung) like a regular cigarette and the tighter RDL (Restricted Direct Lung) vaping, directly into the lungs.

The larger evaporating surface, combined with a traditional cotton wick, also impressed us with the accuracy of flavor delivery – the liquids drawn from the Aspire Gotek X were truly rich in flavor, and you really won’t have to worry about a burnt taste in your mouth.

Battery Life Depends on Usage Frequency

It’s almost a tradition now that modern e-cigarettes come with built-in batteries. Sure, you can still find models that use replaceable “AA” batteries, but isn’t it simpler to just plug in a charging cable and quickly get the device ready for use?

This is the direction Aspire Gotek X has taken. Thanks to its built-in 650 mAh battery and a USB-C charging cable (included in the package), you can always prepare your pod in advance.

As for the battery life per charge, it’s highly individual. If you vape frequently and your device is always at hand, you might need to charge it daily. However, if you vape occasionally, you can definitely expect it to last more than a day. “Holiday vapers” will need to charge it the least.

For those who love vaping while charging, there’s bad news – the device has a passthrough safety feature. This prevents the battery from heating the coil when it’s connected to a power source. It’s important to note that such a restriction is more than welcome. Vaping while charging can risk overheating and irreversible damage to the device.

Safe in Every Aspect

The Aspire Gotek X Pod features up to five different protective functions. These protect not only the user – the vaper – but also the device itself.

  • Protection Against Prolonged Firing: The pod has a limit of a maximum 10-second puff. If you exceed this time, the device will blink twice, and the battery will deactivate. This minimizes the risk of overheating, short-circuiting, or other battery damage.
  • Overcharge Protection: As mentioned earlier, the battery in the device is rechargeable using a USB-C cable. It also has overcharge protection – once fully charged, it will no longer accept additional energy.
  • Low Voltage Protection: If the battery voltage falls below a critically low level, in this case, 3.1 V, an LED light will signal low battery status with 10 blinks, and the device will deactivate. You’ll need to recharge the e-cigarette before continuing to vape.
  • Short-Circuit Protection: There can be situations where a worn-out cartridge might lead to a short circuit. Manufacturers have thought of this and added short-circuit protection to the Aspire Gotek X Pod. A two-second light signal and device deactivation will timely resolve such situations.
  • Overheating Protection: Most vapers have experienced their device getting too hot, especially in summer and with intensive use – and trust us, drawing from an overheated mouthpiece is not pleasant. The Aspire Gotek X Pod is designed with an overheating protection function. If the device reaches too high a temperature, it deactivates the battery until the temperatures stabilize to normal levels.

Summary

In our review of the Aspire Gotek X Pod, we’ve reached the conclusion. To put it briefly, we were impressed by this pod. But let’s break it down further.

It’s true that the battery capacity is somewhat limited in this case. Its longevity will depend not only on frequency but also on the way of vaping. On the other hand, the extremely friendly dimensions of the e-cigarette, which you can easily slip into your pocket, stand out.

We were pleased with the futuristic design featuring a transparent body and the options for both MTL and RDL vaping. The simplicity of use and the numerous safety features that prevent damage to your vape are also good news.

Would we recommend the Aspire Gotek X Pod further? Definitely, yes! And we add that it’s suitable not only for beginner vapers but for all those seeking a compact, yet powerful device with a beautiful design and simple operation.
