I had been using a vape pen but was getting tired of dealing with its issues. For one, the canisters were always prone to leakage. After a day or two of installing a new canister or wick, I would have to regularly dab with a tissue to get a proper vaporization, and clean with alchohol when I could. More importantly, I would have difficulty finding the sweet spot for flavor and dryness of hit even with adjustable voltage. I would have to choose between it being harsh, hot and burnt tasting, or having flavor in a hit that was far too wet. My lips were constantly chapped, I had headaches, and even occasionally blurry vision. This was because a wet hit is putting trace amounts of eliquid on my lips and inside my mouth which is downright unhealthy. If you see condensation in the mouthpiece of your device then this is happening. I read up on nic salts and decided to try the Aspire Breeze 2 with Tribeca salts. What a difference! This device is damn near perfect. By using it with salts you get a more efficient nicotine delivery causing a number of different results. You get a nice, dry hit with no adjustments needed, period. You will vape less frequently, meaning no more refilling or charging on the go, as long as you plan accordingly. You get more mileage out of your liquid. Instead of refilling my tank one or two times a day, I'm refilling every three or four days. No leakage whatsoever, and more importantly, no more numb or burning lips or other side effects. A few good puffs and I actually get a little head buzz like when I smoked and I just put it down for an hour. The device is twice as wide as your average pen, but half the height, so it can easily go in a shirt pocket unlike a pen. There are only a few things I would change. It has a light feature to let you know your charge status. Blue and orange for full, blue for half, and orange for low. First of all, shouldn't full and half be switched? Second, these lights showing through your tank is novel, but between the liquid and the smoke colored tank it isn't really useful. You can easily pop out the tank and press the fire button to check your charge, but these lights could just be on the side of the device, or encircle the button. Lastly, the cap just stays on with friction. Little divots and detents would really help keeps the cap on. However, in all aspects that matter as far as functionality and performance the Breeze 2 is flawless. I really cannot recommend it and salts highly enough. After six years of vaping it is the best I have found. If for some reason pretending you're a dragon and producing massive clouds is your top priority, then this probably isn't for you. However, for those looking for results in your experience that actually matter, you won't be disappointed.
