Aspire Plato Review

Quick Intro

The Aspire Plato is, according to the official UK Ecig Store description, An all in one personal e-cig from Aspire that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.” It also comes with a range of features, including temperature control, a massive 5.6ml E-liquid capacity, and a maximum power output of 50W.

All things considered, this device is considered a versatile and all-inclusive vapourizer – so naturally, we were excited to put it to the test.

Here’s what we found out about the Aspire Plato after giving it a trial run of our own.

Pros and Cons

Here are the basic pros and cons that we discovered about this product over the course of our research…

Pros

  • It’s super well-built
  • It works superbly well
  • Produces amazing flavour and massive clouds
  • Fits very well in the hand and looks amazing

Cons

  • Produces a few ‘hot splatters’ when you inhale on it at a high wattage
  • There’s no pass-through-charging option

What’s in the starter kit?

Here’s what you can expect to see in the box when you purchase the Aspire Plato from the UK Ecig Store.

  • 1 Box Mod
  • 1 1.8ohm BVC Atomizer Head
  • 1 Sub-ohm Atomizer Head
  • 1 Stainless Steel Drip Tip
  • 1 Delrin Drip Tip
  • An 18650 Lithium Ion Battery
  • A Micro USB Charging Cable
  • 1 Battery-changing Key
  • 2 Extra seals

Specifications

This device is certainly built for more advanced vapers. The battery is a 2500mAh 18650, which is awesome. We were actually super impressed that this device came with a battery, as a lot of box mods nowadays aren’t shipping with them.

The Micro USB charger was a flat ribbon-style lead – which was very nice. Of course, you can choose to either charge the device with the battery in it using the lead, or you can charge your 18650s on an external charger – giving you two different charging options, which is nice.

Just keep in mind that you don’t get an external charger with the kit – so if you don’t have one, you’ll certainly be using the charging lead.

You get two drip tips with this device. One is stainless steel and thinner, and the other is made of Delrin. The Delrin drip tip was more designed for sub-ohm vaping. It’s wider and won’t get as hot as the stainless steel tip – which is nice.

Everything on this device is really built into the body of the vapourizer, which is strange at first – but after a closer inspection, it really makes a lot of sense. Even though the tank is also technically built into the vapourizer, however, you can still see your E-liquid level through a small window located on the side of the device – which we were quite pleased to see.

Aspire Plato device

The outside of the vapourizer (the smooth black part that wraps around it) actually pops off to reveal the inner contents. That’s how you access all of the parts inside of the device, like the tank, the battery, and the atomizer. It’s magnetic, so removing it and gaining access to the inside of the device is pretty zero-hassle. We were super, super impressed with how this worked. It was incredible, to be quite honest.

The tank design alone was great! Aspire really did a fantastic job on the design of this product. We cannot stress this enough.

The key that comes with the kit is required to remove and change the atomizer (though a penny or another small coin will also suffice). The way that this is accomplished is quite unique, actually. You simply unscrew the atomizer where the drip-tip plugs in, and then pull it out and put the new one in.

It sounds sort of weird to just say it like that – but when you see the device in action, you’ll see that it all makes sense and works very well.

The kit comes with two different atomizers and atomizer casings, which are both suited to different styles of vaping (sub-ohm and regular) – which is pretty cool. Aspire really ships a lot of accessories with this kit, which we were quite impressed with.

The LCD screen was also very good-looking. As far as the specifications and details go, we couldn’t be happier with it.

  • 50 Watts of power
  • Has temperature control settings
  • Product dimensions: 100mm height, 50mm width
  • 6ML capacity
  • Features 2 different juice ports
  • Comes with updatable firmware
  • Is available in several different colors
  • Has an adjustable airflow control
This device is built with most of the components housed within – so it’s actually not compatible with other devices in the way that a lot of box mods might be. There really isn’t a clearomizer, for example – as the E-liquid is simply stored inside. You can, of course, use the 18650 battery with other devices that use that type of battery – but beyond that, the other parts of this device probably aren’t going to be very compatible with anything else.

What did we think of this Box Mod?

Overall, the design of this device was purely unbelievable – in a good way. It’s a very unique vapourizer. We’ve honestly never seen anything quite like this. The way the parts were all housed inside was quite different – but it worked extremely well.

As far as the design and construction goes, Aspire deserves two thumbs up for the Plato!

Filling the device was surprisingly easy. You simply fill it through a small hole along the side.

The Plato produces copious amounts of vapour (especially in sub-ohm mode). You will not believe how well this device does. It’s as powerful as it is elegant, and you’ll find that it packs more than enough power to produce massive clouds.

Information! One small downside that we did notice was that it tends to throw a few ‘hot splashes’ along with the vapour, which we weren’t expecting. But really, that’s not a huge problem at all. It’s sort of a compact device, so really that makes sense.

The flavour was also spot on, as was the responsiveness. It also kept surprisingly cool during use – which was a pleasant surprise.

If you’re in the market for a device that’ll give you everything you could possibly need in a vapourizer, then the Aspire Plato is certainly an option that you’ll want to look into. Kudos to Aspire, once again, for the design on this product. We were very pleased and impressed with it, and would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone interested in a high-tech box mod.


Appearance and Feel

The box that the device came in looked sturdy and impressive. It was, to put it simply, ‘plain and sexy’. The Plato comes in a wide range of colors, which was nice to see. We got it in the black, which we rather liked. When we opened up the box, we were more than impressed by the initial look and design of the product within.

The feel

Once again, to put it simply, this device is beautiful. To say that it looks elegant would certainly not be doing it justice. It’s truly a work of art – and we can honestly say that it exceeded our expectations in this regard.

The user manual was well-done enough – though slightly disappointing when you consider how gung-ho the marketing was on the device. We were expecting them to go a bit all-out in this department. But as it was, it was simple and to the point. The contents were also laid out very well within the box. We were quite impressed with everything in this sense.

As far as the general feel of the device goes, it fits well in the hand and works like a charm. It’s actually classified as a stealth vapourizer, mostly due to the fact that it can be so easily concealed within the palm of your hand – and it certainly deserves this classification.

  • Airflow

The airflow controller is quite unique. It’s located at the base of the device, and can be adjusted easily to provide as much airflow as you may want.

  • Material

The materials used to make this device seem to mostly consist of metal, glass, and plastic. We were quite impressed with the construction and the design of the product, really. Kudos to Aspire for creating such a dynamic and structurally-sound vapourizer!

  • Ease of Use

This device is actually a bit advanced, so it might not be the best product to buy if you’re just getting started. With that being said, it’s certainly not super-difficult to use, and even a new vaper could learn how to use it with some time and practice. But it does come with a lot of settings and moving parts – so it’s probably a bit better suited to more advanced vapers than it is to newcomers.

Highlights

One highlight of the UK Ecig Store in-general is that they offer free shipping on all orders totaling more than £20, which is awesome.

Drawbacks

One surprising drawback of this device was the fact that it doesn’t come with the option for pass-through charging. In other words, you can’t vape while charging it – which we found a bit peculiar.
