Aspire SkyStar Revvo Kit
The new kit from Aspire - released today - is the SkyStar mod coupled with the Revvo Tank. The mod looks good and feels comfortable, the tank looks like a tank - until you take the top off - this tank used an all new coil called the Aspire Radial Coil (ARC) and is the most interesting release in the pre-made coil market that we have seen for a long time!
No information about how this vapes for the minute as not had chance to try it yet but we will update this review shortly with more details about the coils, they flavour and their performance.

The Aspire SkyStar Mod
The SkyStar mod has a look of the YiHi SX Mini G Class about it. It is a dual battery mod with the tank sitting in the middle of the top of the unit. The 510 connection has a spring loaded centre pin and the 'a' of the Aspire logo is engraved around the 510 connection which is a nice touch. The mod is 91mm high by 50mm high and 33mm in depth. The mod feels light-weight, obviously not as robust feeling as the G Class but the metal surround and carbon fibre-style covers should bedurable enough. A welcome move away from mods with flaky paint jobs or rubberised finished that tarnish. The only downside with this style of mod, if the iJoy Captain was anything to go by, is how quickly the casing picks up scratches.
The SkyStar has a wattage range of 5-210W, firing between 0.5 and 9.0V and will fire coils with resistances down to 0.1ohms.
The mod has a touch screen, Aspire have noted this as being the "Most cost-effective Touch screen Mod with best value". We haven't seen any pricing info for the mod yet but will update the review as soon as we have this info.
The Revvo Tank
This tank has a couple of interesting features. Firstly, no need to unscrew anything to refill! The tank can be filled via the funnel shaped contraption at the top of the tank. Secondly, the tank uses Aspire's new Aspire Radial Coil (ARC) system. This is a circular coil of interlinked radial metal - a bit like a notch coil but flat instead of round. It's going to be interesting to see how this heats up, how long it lasts and how it performs in terms of flavour!
The underside of the coil is packed with wicking material does not appear to be cotton. It is stuck to the underside of the coil as well. We have asked Aspire to confirm how these coils are made, what the material is and if an adhesive has been used to keep the wicking material in place.
The coils are rated at 50-100W with an optimal range of 80-85W.
Coil replacement is easy, unscrew the top cap, unscrew the metal funnel object and then pull out the coil, screw the funnel back on, screw the cap on and you're good to go!
It's good to see some innovation from Aspire again. I am not convinced about the coils at present, I want to know what they are made of and what testing they have done on them before I get too excited about them. The instructions also state "After the first filling and when replacing the coil, turn the tank upside down for 2 minutes to help saturate the coil with e-liquid. While vaping, periodically invert the tank to maintain saturation of the cotton (suggest every 3-5 puffs) to avoid the risk of burning the coil."
OK, that doesn't sound too inspiring! For stellar flavour I might put up with this, we'll have a few puffs on it this evening and will report back shortly.
