The Aspire Boxx review and this is a spin on the typical Boro Billet Box style and is cross compatible with many of the bridges and bits ‘n bobs that style of vaping brings.
It’s a collaboration between Aspire and high end designers Sunbox and Atmizoo, with a price tag to match.
Whilst it’s predominantly designed for the vaper that likes to tinker – as in enthusiast/hobbyist, it can be used straight out of the box thanks to the Nautilus coil compatible pods/tanks.
There’s also an RBA tank/pod which can be bought separately and I’ll be taking a look at that too.
Aspire really has upped its game this last few months and the collaboration with Sunbox and Atmizoo really has lifted its products, especially the Prestige range, into almost high end prices.
What Can We Expect From the Aspire Boxx?
High end design and superb build quality with a multitude of vaping options is the answer!
As I’ve already stated, this is Aspire’s spin on the hugely popular Boro Billet Box style designs and is cross compatible.
The beauty here is it can be as simple or as detailed as you wish with a kit usable straight out of the box OR tinkering to your hearts content with all the bridges and other paraphernalia out there.
I’ll be honest and say all the bells and whistles are not really my scene, however the addition of the RBA tank/pod is good news and I’ll be interested to see how easy [or not] it is to build and wick.
OK, this was sent to me via the lovely folk over at UK Aspire Vendor – thank you – and as always my thoughts and opinions are not swayed by freebies.

If you’re a fan of the Boro Billet Box then all of your bridges and bits and bobs are compatible with the Aspire Boxx.
If I’m honest most of that goes over my head, however those in the know are raving about the cross compatibility.
Therefore with this review I’ll only be looking at what’s comes out of the box…and of course the separately bought RBA head/pod.
In basic terms this is a pod/AIO crossover – however the pod in this case is Aspire’s take on a Boro style tank with an easy side fill system.
It’s a single 18650 battery device that maxes out at 60w and has variable wattage, variable voltage and bypass modes, the screen is basic and on the base.
Inside the box are x2 coils: 1x Nautilus BVC Coil 1.8Ω and the 1x Nautilus 2S Mesh Coil 0.7Ω.
I’m guessing this can be as straightforward a vape as you can get, or with all the Billet Box bells and whistles you can fine tune your vape experience.
Personally I just want to vape without all the fiddling about, but the options are seemingly endless.
Aspire Boxx Quick Start Guide
If like me you just want to fill ‘n vape:
- The coils are popped into the pod/tank using the coil adaptor
- Unscrew drip tip – pop in tank and secure by screwing the drip tip down
- Fill via side port
- Slide door back on
Design and Build Quality
The Aspire Boxx looks like the larger ‘love child’ of the Aspire Mixx and the Nautilus Prime X, you can certainly see similar design features.
It’s made from stainless steel and anodized aluminum making it tough and relatively lightweight.
The battery cap isn’t as crunchy as I expected, and with repeated use now screws down tight with no rattle – just be gentle with it to avoid cross threading.
The sliding ‘Boro’ tank outer door sits and slides on its runners nicely and those strong batteries certainly keeps it all in place and again no rattle.
The buttons have a very nice throw to them, however they are sited quite low down – I found them comfortable though.
I received the Tuxedo version and the silver buttons contrast nicely with the black body – the other colour is Quicksilver and yeah it’s silver 😉
How Does the Aspire Boxx Perform?
I’ll be taking a look at the RBA tank/head in a wee while.
Out of the box and you are only given the Aspire Boxx pod for the included and compatible Nautilus coils.
The included pod/tank is for MTL vaping – a BP pod/tank can be bought separately if you prefer a DTL or RDTL vape so remember that when buying.
Also worth noting is the airflow control.
The included pod/tank has airflow control thanks to the coil adaptor – the BP pod/tank does not.
The two included coils have been reviewed very many times, but given this is a Boro style tank, let’s take a look.
For the taste test I’ve used the IVG Crushed Range – Paradise Lagoon nic salt.
The tanks are 2ml capacity and there’s a rather large and very unattractive ‘bung’ inside.
I’m not sure if it can be removed – please let me know if you’ve been able too.
Aspire Boxx Nautilus BVC Coil 1.8Ω
I’m on record as saying this isn’t one of the better Nautilus coils and for me, it’s the same inside the Aspire Boxx.
The flavour I know from the vape juice is more than a little muted and picks up more of the ice effect rather than the fruit.
The airflow control works well though and wide open this is a very airy vape – closed off and yup a ‘proper’ MTL.
Aspire Boxx Nautilus 2S Mesh Coil 0.7Ω
A much better coil for me and this one definitely popped the fruit flavours leaving the iciness in the background.
I use this coil all the time in my go to Nautilus Prime X – one of the best of the Aspire coils for me.
Aspire Boxx Drip Tips and Adaptor
Before I take a look at the Aspire Boxx Qbixx RBA pod/tank, a quick word on the drip tips.
There’s x2 in the box as well as an adaptor to use your own.
The one installed is less restricted than the spare and is the one I have preferred using.
The included wrench means you can add the 510 adaptor to use your own…a nice touch.
Aspire Boxx Qbixx RBA Pod/Tank
This has to be bought separately and is a tad on the expensive side for my taste.
Inside the Box
- 1x Qbix RBA Pod (2ml)
- 10x AFC pins
- 1x RBA AFC Adapter (preinstalled)
Aspire Boxx Qbixx RBA Quick Start Guide
- There’s no coil included.
- It’s pretty simple to get to the deck.
- Unscrew the airflow adaptor and pull the press-fit deck out.
- Swap the airflow pins to suit BEFORE adding the coil.
- It’s a pretty simple deck with x2 smallish grub screws.
- I found thinning the cotton and cutting the tails to the edge of the deck was best.
- Press fit back into the tank!
How Does the Aspire Boxx Qbixx RBA Perform?
I’ve reviewed similar pod/tank RBAs in the past and got into a right mess.
I am a fingers and thumbs builder and not exactly a hand and eye coordination kind of bloke lol.
However, I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of building on the Aspire Boxx Qbixx RBA!
I dropped the coil legs in no bother and wicked it pretty good first time – so pretty painless even for me lol.
As to the performance?
Not bad at all…
I was using a generic clapton 0.8ohm coil which gave me decent flavour and bags of clouds.
I have no doubt the better builders out there will lift the performance to higher levels than I managed.
However, I’ll be using the RBA head a lot more than I shall the stock coils let’s put it that way.
Easy to build and with a better build than mine this is impressive for sure.
- Boro Billet Box compatible
- Choice of Boro style tanks/pods
- Compatible with wide range of Nautilus coils
- Great build quality
- RBA head option
- Choice of drip tip options
- MTL – DTL and RDTL
- Great battery life with MTL coils
- Looks very smart indeed
Final Review Verdict
I’ll be brutally honest and say the Aspire Boxx is wasted on me…
This is definitely for the vape enthusiast and of course those looking for a cheaper Billet Box option.
That aside you can of course simply fill and vape and use it as a pod/AIO set up.
That’s how I’ll be using it especially with the RBA head.
Out of the box and for the average vaper it’s a great little set-up – a bit basic menu wise but hey that’s all you really need.
For the true vaping enthusiast the world really is your oyster with so many bits ‘n bobs to add it’s untrue.
It has an impressive design and build and the three companies, Aspire, Sunbox and Atmizoo really are working very well together creating impressive vape gear.
I’m into simpler and I have to say cheaper vape kit options, but this one is dead easy to use out of the box or you can make it as complicated as you like.
