Look at the stars; look how they shine for you. The SkyStar takes you into orbit with massive vapor production until you mingle with the stars – and they are all yellow. I hate Coldplay, by the way, but I ended loving the kit.
In its basic form, the mod is powered by 210W of Odin’s strength and the sub-ohm tank boasts 0.16ohm coils. Don’t let me get ahead of myself, though, because we must first analyze its components.

I grab the box, rip it open, and I’m greeted by the mod – sitting there, all snug and smug. I assemble each part and notice how strange the tank looks. It is not a familiar sight. It has a knurled dial, and removable pieces that you twist and tighten into place (or out of place). The coil resembles a stove top, in a way. You also refill by injecting the bottle via the top straight down into the tank – like so:
The coil situation I previously described can be explained with the following picture because I will give it no justice. I’m sure my stove top description makes it crystal clear but the Aspire Radial Coil Technology (cue the ominous music) will sure pique your interest:
I must admit I felt slightly alienated at first glance when trying to figure out the tank situation. After I played with it long enough and was puffing on some Go Nana by Naked e-juice, I started noticing good and bad things. I had to hold it at an angle in order to get it to fire, which is odd and kind of annoying. Getting acclimated to this was actually rather quick so I wouldn’t, personally, consider this a deal-breaker. That was more like that small annoying rattle your car makes that you forget it even exists.
Let’s talk about the touchscreen. Not the most innovative but it quickly gets to where you want to go and it’s easy to learn and navigate.
The battery compartment boasts beefy magnets that grip tightly onto the battery door. The batteries show no sign of rattling either, which is a huge plus.
Pros & Cons:
PRO: Easy to use and navigate touchscreen display
PRO: Terrific for cloud-chasing
PRO: All pieces look sleek and no rattling
CON: Needs to be held at an angle to fire
Other Professional Opinions:
Don’t just take my word for it. I scouted the vast plains of the internet looking for other Aspire SkyStar Revvo Starter Kit users and gathered a consensus that will, hopefully, shed an unbiased light on the pros and cons.
Let’s take a look:
- Cool design
- Everything works properly (except for the tank)
- Crazy cloud production
- Display is easy to understand
- Coil system is flawed – you must angle it to get it right
- Sometimes you get spitback
- Overall opinion on the tank is a 3/10 rating
- The touchscreen is nice and sleek
- Impressive with fruity liquid vape juice
- Great mod and its features
- The battery door has beefy magnet which is nice
- Batteries fit tightly without rattling
- Nice colors available
- You must vape at an angle
- Neat top-filling by injecting it via the drip tip
- Great touchscreen
- Love the vapor production – too many clouds!
- Must be held at an angle
- Tank is complicated
At the end of the day, it’s all about subjective preference. Some reviewers liked it, and some didn’t. I personally enjoyed this a lot. Reviewer Jai Haze gave it a 4/10 rating. So, who’s right? Who knows! Thus, the consensus. I hope this helps you decide whether to purchase this puppy or not.
Starting with the cons, the vaping at an angle issue was an overwhelming negative among everybody. Not the deal breaker type but it is definitely something Aspire must seek to fix ASAP. The mediocre touchscreen received a few complaints as well. It wasn’t sleek enough to even bother boasting a touchscreen, which could incidentally raise the price.
The vapor production was a recurring compliment. I can attest to that. The clouds ripped effortlessly. Overall, the positive notes are about this product doing what it promises to do. There is no need to go into each element when you know what a battery door is supposed to do.
I love vaping on this kit and despite it not being considered an innovative product. It still received a conclusive thumbs-up rating across the board.
