The Aspire One Up R1 Kit – is a curious new release – which despite having “Disposable” in the title is not quite a throw away device…

This kit is not showing yet on the official Aspire website – however the UK Aspire Vendor site has plenty of info.

What To Expect From The Aspire One Up R1 Kit?

I assume the “Disposable” bit in the kit name is to attract those who are normally in the market for disposable kits.

But weirdly this is refillable and rechargeable?

However the pod cannot be removed and replaced – so this is still sort of disposable. I think you can keep it going until the coil performance deteriorates and then it is scrap. Which does seem a shame?one up r1 features

Anyway inside the device is a 650mAh battery which is charged using the USB Type C port, but the rate and charge time are not up r1 charging

This will output a constant 3.7V which should keep the vape experience stable without fluctuations due to battery power remaining.

The base houses the USB port and the LED indicator.Aspire One Up R1 aqua

To use simply inhale on the mouthpiece and the sensor will trigger the auto draw firing for you.

As mentioned above the pod section is fixed to the battery but you can refill using the side fill port with up to 3ml (standard) or 2ml (TPD) of your own up r1 filling

A 0.8ohm Mesh coil in the pod should give a good coil life and great flavour.

Anyway let me know what you think of the Aspire One Up R1 Kit in the comments below!

My name is Michelle - I am 45 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
