The Aspire Proteus Neo is something different – it is a device for providing the experience of a Hookah but in an electronic way!
What To Expect From The Aspire Proteus Neo…
As mentioned above this is a lot different from your standard vaping kit.
This is an E-hookah device which is designed to fit above a hookah bowl / vase with hookah hose or (hoses) to provide the heating system for the liquid.
A standard Hookah basically burns Shisha (flavoured tobacco) and the resulting smoke passes through the water bowl to cool it before it exits through the hose into the human using it.
Basically this is an alternative way to enjoy Shisha but instead of burning you are vaporising Shisha in a liquid form or standard vape e-liquid.
So with that in mind you fill the Proteus Neo head with up to 25ml of Shisha liquid / e-liquid. This is not compatible with dry tobacco, Shisha or herbs. The instructions say you can use e-liquid with a 70%VG ratio.
Then you set up the water container and install the appropriate Silicone adaptor to the hookah head base. The adaptor needs an airtight fit in the water container.
There is a built in 5700mAh battery which you can charge using a USB Type C cable at a quick 2A charge rate.
Once set up the device will activate when someone inhales on the hookah hose and it will provide vapour to pass through the water to cool it.
Inside the device is a 0.17ohm Proteus Neo mesh coil and this is replaceable.
Plus you can also adjust the airflow to suit the preference of the user.
An LED indicator informs of the battery charge remaining and any fault conditions. There are also plenty of protections to help prevent short circuits, overheating etc.
There are 5 colours to choose from: White, Red, Green, Blue and Black.

I have to admit to knowing little about how Hookahs and E-hookahs work (I do understand a Bong though!) In theory vaporised liquid in an E-hookah should be less harmful than inhaling the smoke from dry products which are combusted in a standard Hookah.
Let me know if the Aspire Proteus Neo E-hookah is a device you fancy having a play with!
