Aspire Triton, which is a successor toÂ the highly popular Aspire Atlantis 2, is a 3.5 ml sub-ohm tank, made of stainless steel and Pyrex glass.Â Initially, Triton was a widelyÂ anticipated tank, mainly thanksÂ to theÂ innovative top-fill system and the dual airflow build.
We have used the TritonÂ 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.

First of all, the Aspire Triton looks and feels very solid and sturdy, leaving an impression of a well-builtÂ tank. Both the rotating part of the top-fill system and the base airflow adjustment wheel rotate quite elegantly.
TheÂ mouthpieceÂ comes apart in two pieces, with one of them being the base, which features a heat sink and additional airflow slots, and the secondÂ â€“ a stainless steelÂ 510 drip tip.
Let’s start out with the 1.8ohm coil.Â ThisÂ is a traditional kanthal coil, rated at 10-13 watts. ItÂ gives youÂ some really intense flavor, but the vapor production is very minimalÂ â€“ yes,Â it could seem too weak evenÂ for mouth-to-lung hits, which is the primary use of this coil. Of course, it could workÂ wonders for a beginner or a relaxed Sunday evening vape, but at lest weÂ weren’t very impressed about its performance.
Next comes the stainless steelÂ 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 aÂ great coil, offering you the best of both worldsÂ â€“ flavor and clouds.
The 0.3ohm coil, which is also made ofÂ stainless steelÂ and is rated at 45-55 watts, performs very similarly.Â The only thing isÂ â€“ you need to dramatically increase the wattage to get something out of it. When firing this coil on the Aspire Pegasus, we even gotÂ all they way up to the maximum of 70 watts. Sure, the tankÂ and even the mouthpieceÂ gets very hot at that wattage, but the vapor still staysÂ relatively cool. We wouldn’t recommend anyone using this coilÂ at wattages that high, thoughÂ â€“ 50w or 55w work just great.
WhatÂ We Enjoyed About the Aspire Triton
Filling the Aspire Triton is really a breeze. The system is very straightforward and easy to useÂ â€“ to fill the tank, you simply need to rotate the upper cap of the tankÂ so that the little arrow points to the drop symbol, remove the drip tip, and pour your juice intoÂ one of the tinyÂ openings (just make sure not to pour it in the central opening â€“ the chimney). This means that the TritonÂ can stayÂ attached to your device while refilling, and it certainly makes life easier for those of us who go through theirÂ liquid delicacies like there’s no tomorrow.
Build quality & design
Pure and simple â€“ the Triton works just like it’s supposed to. The finish is scratch proof, and we’d even say â€“ 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, ifÂ 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 usÂ 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 doingÂ deep hits straight to your lungs. And, along with the bottom base airflow, the drip tip slotsÂ offer great versatility and makeÂ finding your sweet spot a little bit easier. Also, byÂ restricting the airflow almost fully,Â you can get someÂ nice mouth-to-lung style hitsÂ out of the Triton.
However, the upperÂ part of the tankÂ has one tiny flawÂ â€“ when trying to access the refilling holes, the 510 drip tip occasionally comes off without the heat sink base.Â A small issue, but still.
Great flavor & cool vapor
There’s no doubt: allÂ 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 atÂ high wattages,Â produce relatively cool vapor, which we definitely liked.Â That’s a matter of taste, however, becauseÂ some people might prefer a warm, smooth, Kanger Subtank-styleÂ vape, which is something different than the Triton can offer.
WhatÂ We Didn’t Enjoy About the Aspire Triton
Inability to fully disassemble the tank
As theÂ Pyrex tube is enclosed by the stainless steel casing, the TritonÂ 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 lotÂ for a beginner, at least we here at Ecigclopedia tend to go through a lot more than that per day.Â In case of Triton, this means refilling the tankÂ two to fourÂ timesÂ daily. However, as this tank is very easy to fill, that’s not a huge issue, but it might annoyÂ some of the most hardcore vapers.
OccasionalÂ dry hits
We tried many different coils with the TritonÂ â€“ from Atlantis, AtlantisÂ 2 and even from Eleaf iJust 2. Therefore,Â 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, weÂ hadÂ to deal with someÂ dry hits now and then.Â Although simply lowering the wattage for a while always made things go back to normal, weÂ tried to identify the cause of this issue. And, just like other vapers have pointed out on various forums, seems that the juiceÂ 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’tÂ a hugeÂ issue for us, but it might annoyÂ some other users.
The Aspire Triton is easy to refill, suitableÂ to bothÂ â€“ sub-ohm vaping and mouth-to-lung hittingÂ â€“ audiences, and offers outstandingÂ flavorÂ â€“ no matter which coil you choose. Besides, it is compatible withÂ many different coils from other tanks, so getting a replacement coil should never be a problem.
The airflow system of this tankÂ isÂ 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,Â the Triton is able to produce a relatively cool vape at almost all timesÂ â€“ the tankÂ itself does get hot, but we never had to deal withÂ stinging vapor or spitbacks.
While the Triton hasÂ 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 serveÂ theÂ vaping needs of both beginners and more advancedÂ users as well.
