What’s up, Insiders? DeucesJack, I’m a VapingInsider.com. Today, we’re going to be going over the Aspire Odan Mini. I got the emerald and I got the smoky quartz. The big question on this one is, is this one as good as the OG?

What’s In the Box?
Check that out. Instruction manual, warranty card, spare o rings. Look at that beauty. Check this thing out. That is really kind of sexy. Almost like a black chrome. Even had like a gunmetal chrome. It’s shiny and beautiful. What a fantastic looking tank. I just dig it. I know I’m gushing but that’s just beautiful. I’m sorry. On the bottom, you can see, Aspire, gold-plated 510, insulator ring, stainless steel threading around that. What color is this? This is called smoky quartz and man, is that gorgeous? Wow! Look at that drip tip. Nice drip tip, 810 Smok style drip tip with the o-rings on the drip tip itself.

From Top To Bottom
Just like the full-size Odan, got a pull and push. Really really nice locking system on that slider cap. I absolutely love that. Got a decent sized fill port in here. Probably only needle-nosed bottles will fit. Probably make a mess with the bull nose bottles but it’s not terrible. What I really like about it is the resistance. The resistance on this is absolutely fantastic and then once you push it down, it locks down and it won’t slide open in your pocket. Beautiful, beautiful job, Aspire. I know a lot of people don’t like it but I like that diamond cut glass because I’m a kid from the 70s and I guess it looks like an old 70 chandelier. I just think it’s gorgeous, I really do. Bottom airflow, stoppers on both ends. Triple bottom airflow, one, two, three. Whatever you adjust on one, happens on the other two.
In order to open it up, like every other sub ohm tank, you just twist the bottom. Initially, the threading is a little crunchy but you’ll be fine. You can see, gold-plated contact on the bottom right there.That’s going to make contact with the gold plating over here and fire your coil. Your coil comes out, you just pull it out. But I want you to take notice right here. See what a juice slot is right there? Watch this. When I pull it out, see that juice slot closing? See that? See how that closes? Let me show you the inside. That’s all closed off now. So if you have three quarters of a tank in here and your coil burns out on you, you can pull it out without the juice leaking. That’s a huge, huge pro. That was also present on the full-size Odan.
Let’s take a look at this coil, 0.3 ohm, good for 35-45W. Some nice mesh in there as well and you also get this Odan coil. Looks like the same one that came with the big Odan. 0.2 ohm, good for 50-60W. Nice, big mesh inside. I’m definitely digging it. These coils are fantastic. I’ve used them in the full-size Odan and they’re just phenomenal. You also get a spare straight glass in case you don’t like that diamond cut thing going on. I think I’m going to use the lower ohm coil, the higher wattage coil, that’s more my jam, 50-60W. We’re going to take the preinstalled one out.
Juice we’re going to be using today is Jam Monster mixed berry. I love my Jam Monster juices, especially their berry stuff. First thing you want to do, you want to take your coil, you want to get a little juice around the inside in there, get it nice and started and then you just want to go around each juice slot, each diamond shaped slot and just kind of paint the edges right there. Get that juice flowing. Maybe go back on top, get a little juice in there, get it nice and saturated.
Once you’re done with that, you want to take your coil. I just like to line up. You don’t have to line up the diamonds to the juice lot but I like to do it. It’s just my OCD. You just pop it in there, just like so. Once that’s done, you take your base, little reverse thread till it clicks in and just tighten it right on them and right on there, just like that. Now we’re going to open up our top cap. Remember, we got to pull and then push. Now it’s all open. Now we’re going to take our Jam Monster mixed berry and we’re going to give this tank a fill. There you go, we’re all filled up.
I’m going to close her up. going to take our drip tip and just check that out. That tank, I’m telling you, this might be one of the best looking tanks I’ve ever seen. I love the color on this thing. The smoky quartz, it’s gorgeous. I’m going to pop this on to my Cold Steel 100. Think it’s going to look kind of badass on there. We’re going to set this thing to 50W and we’re going to vape on it and break that coil in.
Let’s get into those cons and pros.
First con’s going to be, just like on the full-size one, this one is a tad on the loud side. Let me show you what I’m talking about. Right now, I got it fully open. Listen, it’s a little loud, a little swooshy. Now, if I close it down about half way, check this out. It whistles. You could play Dixie on this thing. So I got to give it a con for being on the loud side, especially halfway closed.
Another con is going to be, and this is on the subjective side, I love the diamond cut bubble glass. I know, from my original review, some people absolutely hate it. So that’s going to be subjective. I love it. For you people that hate it, we’ll chalk it up in the con category.
And the last con and the only other con that I had for this is I really wish this tank system, the big Odan and this one, would run a hotter coil. I wish they develop an 80-100W coil because that’s more of the range that I’m vaping. I would love to see a coil with those types of parameters on it.
But that’s it. There’s not a lot to complain about on this one. Let’s move on to the pros.
First pro is going to be, you guys know, I don’t believe they should ever make a slider cap without a locking system on it. This one has it. It works great, it’s a pro.
Love the looks and that diamond cut glass. We already went over that.
It’s got a nice capacity, no matter which glass you use.
Very good flavor and clouds. Let me show you what I’m working with here. I got the 0.2ohm coil in there at 65W. Check it out. Nothing wrong with that, baby. It’s just nice. That was with the airflow halfway shut. Let me show it to you with the airflow wide open. Again, nothing wrong with that. It’s just got even though the air flow is a little loud, the airflow is still smooth. The flavor is dense, it’s saturated. I love this coil system, just gets really, really good flavor. It’s top-notch flavor and clouds as far as I’m concerned.
Next on the pro side, coil longevity. These coils seem to last really long. They’re the same exact coils that you’ll find in the full-size one. They just seem to last pretty long. I’ve done multiple juice changes on them. They’ve got a nice longevity to them. I’ve never gotten less than 20 fill ups out of a coil. That’s how good they are. I love these coils.
I love that auto juice flow control I showed you down low. When you pull the plug and play coil out, it automatically closes the juice off. So you can swap coils even with a full tank. That’s a huge pro. Aspire has a reputation of having some pretty good build quality. This is a step up even for them. It’s a pro.
Love that honeycomb drip tip. I love everything about it. It’s comfortable and it looks awesome.
And the last pro is going to be, it’s got an awesome color selection. I’ll go over that in the specs.
Five-Star Rating System
Let’s rate this one, five star scale.
In the looks department, this thing’s going to score a four and a half stars. I already told you, I love the look of the diamond glass. They sent me an emerald green and a smoky quartz one. The colors are just fantastic. I love the overall looks and aesthetics on this one. It’s a four and a half star rating.
Coil performance, I showed you, great flavor and clouds. The coil longevity is fantastic. We’re going to give it a four and a half star rating on the performance.
Airflow, I already said it, it’s smooth but it whistles. That’s going to hurt it in this department. I’m going to give it a three only because the airflow is not turbulent. But I don’t like the fact that you can get this tank to whistle. Had it not done that, it would have definitely scored higher. But we’re going to leave it at three stars value.
And our value category, I’ve been seeing this thing around 25 bucks. I think that’s a very good value for the vape quality. The clouds, the flavor, the build quality, I think it’s a good value for what you get. We’re going to give it a solid four stars.
So after we average everything out, we have a total score of 16. We divide that by four and this thing comes in at four stars as an overall rating which is a very solid tank. Believe me when I tell you it’s going to be very hard on this channel to get five star ratings because I am very nitpicky. So a four star rating on this channel is an excellent rating.
Let’s go over some of the specs on the Aspire Odan Mini. It measures in at 25mm at the base. You get 5.5mls with the straight glass, 4mls with the diamond-cut bubble. It is primarily made out of 304 stainless steel. It does take the Odan coils, the original coils. In the box, you get a 0.2ohm mesh coil, good for 50-60W. You also get a 0.3ohm mesh coil, good for 35-45W. It’s got a plug-and-play coil system, locking slider cap. Colors available are blue, emerald, rainbow, stainless steel, black, and smoky quartz.
