Aspire Triton Tank Review
Aspire Triton, which is a successor to the highly popular Aspire Atlantis 2, is a 3.5 ml sub-ohm tank, made of stainless steel and Pyrex glass. Initially, Triton was a widely anticipated tank, mainly thanks to the innovative top-fill system and the dual airflow build.
We have used the Triton for quite a while now, so let’s dive in and outline what we think is good and what’s not so good about this tank.
Aspire Triton Tank Review
What’s in the Kit?
The Aspire Triton comes with a 0.4ohm stainless steel coil pre-installed and an additional 1.8ohm kanthal coil for mouth-to-lung style vaping.
Features & Specifications

First of all, the Aspire Triton looks and feels very solid and sturdy, leaving an impression of a well-built tank. Both the rotating part of the top-fill system and the base airflow adjustment wheel rotate quite elegantly.
The mouthpiece comes apart in two pieces, with one of them being the base, which features a heat sink and additional airflow slots, and the second – a stainless steel 510 drip tip.
Let’s start out with the 1.8ohm coil. This is a traditional kanthal coil, rated at 10-13 watts. It gives you some really intense flavor, but the vapor production is very minimal – yes, it could seem too weak even for mouth-to-lung hits, which is the primary use of this coil. Of course, it could work wonders for a beginner or a relaxed Sunday evening vape, but at lest we weren’t very impressed about its performance.
Next comes the stainless steel 0.4ohm coil, rated at 25-30 watts. At 25W, it performs somewhat weakly, while 30w and even 35w gives you an outstanding flavor, with the vapor still being relatively cool. Certainly a great coil, offering you the best of both worlds – flavor and clouds.
The 0.3ohm coil, which is also made of stainless steel and is rated at 45-55 watts, performs very similarly. The only thing is – you need to dramatically increase the wattage to get something out of it. When firing this coil on the Aspire Pegasus, we even got all they way up to the maximum of 70 watts. Sure, the tank and even the mouthpiece gets very hot at that wattage, but the vapor still stays relatively cool. We wouldn’t recommend anyone using this coil at wattages that high, though – 50w or 55w work just great.
What We Enjoyed About the Aspire Triton
Filling the Aspire Triton is really a breeze. The system is very straightforward and easy to use – to fill the tank, you simply need to rotate the upper cap of the tank so that the little arrow points to the drop symbol, remove the drip tip, and pour your juice into one of the tiny openings (just make sure not to pour it in the central opening – the chimney). This means that the Triton can stay attached to your device while refilling, and it certainly makes life easier for those of us who go through their liquid delicacies like there’s no tomorrow.
Build quality & design
Pure and simple – the Triton works just like it’s supposed to. The finish is scratch proof, and we’d even say – bulletproof. The rotating ring of the top-fill system nicely clicks in place, and the bottom base airflow can be always adjusted with ease. And, if you don’t expose your Triton to some extreme temperature changes, it will not surprise you with any unpleasant leaking.

Drip tip airflow system
Another great innovation from Aspire. Initially, it seemed to us that there’s not much difference between the drip tip airflow slots open or closed. However, they actually really helps to improve the draw, especially if you love doing deep hits straight to your lungs. And, along with the bottom base airflow, the drip tip slots offer great versatility and make finding your sweet spot a little bit easier. Also, by restricting the airflow almost fully, you can get some nice mouth-to-lung style hits out of the Triton.
However, the upper part of the tank has one tiny flaw – when trying to access the refilling holes, the 510 drip tip occasionally comes off without the heat sink base. A small issue, but still.
Great flavor & cool vapor
There’s no doubt: all of the original coils which come with the Triton make your e-juice taste better than it probably is. Also, the stainless steel coils, even when fired at high wattages, produce relatively cool vapor, which we definitely liked. That’s a matter of taste, however, because some people might prefer a warm, smooth, Kanger Subtank-style vape, which is something different than the Triton can offer.
What We Didn’t Enjoy About the Aspire Triton
Inability to fully disassemble the tank
As the Pyrex tube is enclosed by the stainless steel casing, the Triton doesn’t fully come apart. You can, of course, remove the bottom and top parts of it, but cleaning the inside of the tank might get tricky.
Low e-liquid capacity
While 3.5 ml of e-juice might seem a lot for a beginner, at least we here at Ecigclopedia tend to go through a lot more than that per day. In case of Triton, this means refilling the tank two to four times daily. However, as this tank is very easy to fill, that’s not a huge issue, but it might annoy some of the most hardcore vapers.
Occasional dry hits
We tried many different coils with the Triton – from Atlantis, Atlantis 2 and even from Eleaf iJust 2. Therefore, we can definitely praise this tank for it’s high coil compatibility. However, when using the 0.3ohm and 0.4ohm coils from the original kit, we had to deal with some dry hits now and then. Although simply lowering the wattage for a while always made things go back to normal, we tried to identify the cause of this issue. And, just like other vapers have pointed out on various forums, seems that the juice openings in the coil do not always align with the flow holes in the chimney. This can be prevented by not fully tightening the coil and paying attention to make sure that the holes line up to each other. Therefore this wasn’t a huge issue for us, but it might annoy some other users.
The Aspire Triton is easy to refill, suitable to both – sub-ohm vaping and mouth-to-lung hitting – audiences, and offers outstanding flavor – no matter which coil you choose. Besides, it is compatible with many different coils from other tanks, so getting a replacement coil should never be a problem.
The airflow system of this tank is really thought-out, offering great possibilities to find your sweet spot in terms of how airy or tight do you want your vape to be. Also, the Triton is able to produce a relatively cool vape at almost all times – the tank itself does get hot, but we never had to deal with stinging vapor or spitbacks.
While the Triton has some flaws, we don’t see any reason not to like it. It is quite an innovative tank with an array of interesting features, which, without any doubt, will serve the vaping needs of both beginners and more advanced users as well.
