Aspire is a familiar brand for most vapers, because its simple and convenient product—Nautilus— has become an essential atomizer for many newbies. Other products like Atlantis, Triton and Cleito have also been recognized by the customers.

Recently, Aspire has launched a four-in-one suit based on Nautilus X: Aspire Quad-Flex.

This suit has varied playing methods, and the vapers could transform among the three modes freely: RDA, RDTA and RTA. Then how is this product’s actual performance? In the following I will share my actual experience with you. 


The suit adopts magnetic packaging. 

On the cap imprinted the detailed illustrations of the four different assemblies.



All the components are in the box. The list looks various, but each component has its own serial number that could help to distinguish it from each other.


RDTA SUIT * 1 (include: a drip tip, a top cap, a tank, an electrode deck, a connecting rod, a glass tank, and a base.)

Ground glass tank * 1

Top airflow tank * 1

510 adapting cap * 1

Nautilus 1.8Ω sub ohm coil head * 1

Nautilus top cap * 1

Bottom filling golden-plating electrode screw * 1

Dripping bottom cap * 1

Several standby silica rings

Standby electrode screw * 4

Allen wrench * 1

Spring wire * 2

Cotton * 1 bag 


By simply assembling the components we could complete three different assemblies. From the left to the right are: the upper part of Nautilus X, the RDTA body, and the top airflow RDA. The RDTA could be disassembled through the middle, and it could turn into a bottom airflow RDA if we equip the upper part with a dripping bottom cap. 

Before introducing the components one by one, let’s look at the very core part of this suit: the electrode deck. 


Except for the Nautilus, the deck will be used in all other three modes. It’s the most core part, because it is the only component that could be placed with the coils and cotton. There are two small e-juice filling holes, four holes for cotton and the U shape electrode on it.


On the bottom is the golden-plating electrode. The g2 part is shown as the right electrode screw, and the hole in the center is designed for filling.

The RDTA Mode



The RDTA mode’s structure is relatively simple. It consists of seven components: the base, the connecting rod, the electrode deck, the glass tank, the airflow tank, the top cap and the drip tip.


It is also convenient to use. Wind the heating wires and fix them on the electrode deck, then thread them with the cotton before pressing the cotton’s tails into the four holes. The cotton in the tank shouldn’t be too much, and it is enough when the cotton is able to touch the bottom. Excessive cotton will affect e-juice flow and lead to burnt cotton. 


As for the dripping part of the RDTA, if we choose the two small holes on the electrode deck to refill the e-juice, then we have to use the pinhole dripping bottle, and the dripping speed is relatively slow. Therefore we could use the following method. 


Separate the electrode deck from the e-juice tank and directly dripping into the tank. Use this method at ease, because there is a 3mm broad sealing ring between the base and the tank, which could effectively avoid leaking. The capacity of the tank is 2ml. 


Finally connect the electrode to the bottom part, lid the airflow tank, top tank and drip tip and you could begin vaping.

Under the RDTA mode, the airflow is fluid. The two side adjustable airflow holes could let the air directing to the coils and create good vapor volume and effect. The flavor is concentrated and rich but relatively bad layered. 

The RDA Mode



The RDA mode reduces the base, connecting rod and glass tank of RDTA and adds a bottom cap to seal the bottom of the electrode deck. Its overall structure is simple and there are five components: the drip tip, the top cap, the airflow tank, the electrode deck, and the bottom cap. 


The RDA mode’s use is not different from other RDAs. Fix the coils on the U shape electrodes and thread them, then cut the excessive part of the cotton, and finally begin dripping. 


The RDA mode is easy to use. If we choose the two-side airflow tank, it has no difference compared with the RDTA mode in the aspect of flavor and vapor volume. Its flavor is concentrated and rich, and the vapor volume is relatively big. But there is a deficiency that the temperature inside the tank will rise after repeated use.

The Electrode Dripping RDA Mode



This mode's structure continues to simplify, and it has only four components: the bottom cap, the electrode deck, the airflow tank, and the drip tip. 


This tank has two side adjustable airflow holes on the upper side. The air will reach the coils along the inwall after entering the tank, and then enter our mouth from the center. This kind of design may have relatively small airflow volume compared with the bottom airflow structure, but the airflow directing design could make marked change to the flavor, which will be more concentrated and layered, except that the richness will slightly reduce. 


This mode have to use the golden-plating electrode screw. I personally think the method of dripping through the electrode will cause bad user experience, because the hole of the electrode is so small that we have to use the pinhole dripping bottle, and before dripping we need to disassemble the atomizer from the device. 

Nautilus X



The initial positioning of Nautilus X is the upgrading version of Nautilus. It continues the characteristics of convenience and easy use of Nautilus and has only five components: the base, the sub ohm coil head, the e-juice tank, the top cap and the drip tip.


The pre-prepared sub ohm coil head’s resistance is 1.8Ω. The structure design of this coil head is very special in that its top is connected to the top airflow structure of the top cap, and the air flows from the side airflow holes into the coil head and passes the top air outflow hole before entering into our mouth. This kind of design allows the tank to be as short and small as possible. However, though the sub ohm coil head support DIY, it is a little bit different. 


The e-juice capacity of Nautilus X is 2ml, and it has one more ground glass tank in the suit than sold individually. The two glass tanks are universal and replaceable. 


The overall design of Nautilus X has made good breakthrough. The short tank and simple structure are easy to use for newbies. The diameter of the top airflow hole is relatively small and the inhalation resistance will be relatively big, which is not suitable for DL. MTL is suggested. The flavor is well layered and aftereffect-oriented. But the actual heating volume is big and the vapor volume is relatively small. The drip tip is not the standard 510, being non-replaceable. 

Supplementary Instructions:


When connecting the electrode to the airflow tank, we need to align the two arrows to make the connection more tightly and closely, but this also means that it will be arduous to separate the two components. It will be better to press the screw using an assistant tool before pull out the tank. 


The four-in-one design of Aspire Quad-Flex is a great innovation. It could easily transform among the three modes: RDA, RDTA and RTA. The use and installation of it is very convenient even for the newbies. Its craftsmanship continues Aspire’s tradition, with no trouble of leaking and bad polishing. For the newbies, this suit could meet their various further demands from the beginning to the advanced period.
