The Aspire Archon 150W box mod starts off with the old chip from Aspire NX75, upped to 150W. It’s actually amazing that their chip can achieve this. Read below to see what other features has Aspire packed in this box mod.
For compatibility, it seems that all tanks up to 23mm sit very well on the Archon. What’s interesting is that after 24mm tanks tend to overhang just a little bit, depending if you have an airflow ring on your tank at the bottom or not. You would think that upping the wattage and targeting people using bigger tanks that require the extra power that the Aspire Archon can offer.
As far as build quality is concerned, Aspire is still the household name that we’ve known for all these years.The form factor is exactly the same as the Aspire Plato. The NX75, by comparison, is smaller but a lot heavier; with 75w and only one 18650 battery. The contacts are spring loaded for the battery as well as the 510 connection and it boasts a magnetic cover made out some pretty sturdy plastic.
For usability, it seems pretty easy to go through Wattage, Voltage, Bypass as well as Temperature (TC) and its supported modes. It also has a few custom modes (TCR) where you can set your own preference. What I thought was a nice addition was the three clicks on the power to go into stealth mode. Companies kept skipping this and I’m glad that Aspire is bringing it back. Apart from that, it still has the same features as on the NX75 for configuration and accelerometer for changing the display.
All in all, another nice mod from Aspire, covering that “high watt” gap in the market for them. A nice buy if you need an upgrade, if only for that accelerometer feature that I love.
