What’s Inside the Box?

Pod Specs – Capacity and Filling
The pod has 2ml e-liquid capacity. The pod of Aspire Flexus Q is a side fill pod. You have a rubber plug covering the filling port on the side of the pod. Filling is very easy and you can do that by pulling the rubber plug to expose the filling hole. Just insert the nozzle of your e-liquid bottle and fill. When the filling is done, push the rubber plug back in its place to fully close the opening. The pod goes in the device really easily and clips right into place. The mouthpiece of Flexus Q is flat and is designed nicely to fit in your lips.
New AF Mesh Coils – Priming
Both the coils of the device are their new AF mesh coils. One coil is 0.6 Ohm, 15 – 18W and the second coil is 1 Ohm rated for 12 – 15 watts. The coils are inserted at the base of the pod. Always keep in mind to prime the brand new coil before initial use. Priming is easy and can be done in the same way just as priming the coils of other vaping devices. Just drop a couple of drops of your favorite e-liquid right in the center of the coil so that the cotton in there is soaked and saturated perfectly. When priming is done then put the coil in its place in the pod properly. Pod fits nicely in the device by simply giving it a slight push.

Red is the lowest strength, blue is the medium and then you will see green – that’s the full strength. So there are three power levels with this device. When you press and hold the fire button, you will see a light there which is your battery charge indicator, green basically means it is between 70 and 100% charged.
Size Comparison with Caliburn
For size comparison if you put it next to Caliburn, both the devices may look similar. Both the devices share almost the same design. Thickness is about the same. Flexus is a little heavier, most probably because it is made of Zinc alloy while the Caliburn is made of Aluminum.
Pros and Cons
Fill ports on pods are usually a con with most of the users. The rubber plugs don’t work well. It needs extra care otherwise it will break off and you can’t use the pod anymore. Designing the rubber plug and fill port needs further considerations for improvement. This issue is not only with Aspire but there are a lot of other companies using the same rubber plugs or stuff like that. It would have been better if they had made a top fill with membrane for easy filling. So filling method is a con of the device. Other than that the device works great and has a nice feel in hand. Some people prefer auto draw and they wish that they would be able to disable the fire button to make it strictly an auto draw device. It does have auto draw or fire button draw, that is definitely a pro. Airflow controller of Aspire Flexus Q is a nicely designed and it works great. Type-C charge port and 3 Amp charging is a big pro. Flexus Q is well built, the pod sits properly in its place and doesn’t move around. Mouthpiece is fine but some prefer them slim. It is a loose MTL vape but you have the airflow controller so you could dial it into where you want to vape it. You can even do a restrictive direct lung with this. A lot of people like to do that restrictive direct lung with high milligram nicotine in a pod system, they are going to love Flexus Q. Flavor is pretty good, it’s a nice pod system. Power adjustments is a pro.
