CCI Triforce Sub Ohm Tank Review

CCI Triforce Intro

We take a look at the Triforce sub ohm tank by Cloud Chasers Inc., which was previously called the Trifecta. The Triforce comes in either stainless steel or Black.

The Triforce is a sub ohm tank with a massively wide air flow, a 5ml tank capacity and a top or bottom filling capability. The Triforce also has a really unique feature, in that it can be converted into an RDA or RTA, with the RTA upgrade kit that can be purchased separately. In this review we will just look at the sub ohm tank and specifically the 0.2ohm Kanthal coil head that comes with the kit. We might at a later date get the RTA upgrade kit and give that a try as well, as it wasn’t available when we asked for the Triforce for review.

A big thanks to Cloud Chasers Inc. for sending us out the Triforce to review.

Notable Remarks

Vape Setup: Sigelei 150W + Miss Samoa max VG e-juice by Fa-Q.

50W – Not much happening yet apart from some whispy vapor.
60W – Still not a lot of vapor yet.
70W – Decent vapor now and a hint of flavor starting to come through.
80W – Big vapor now and the flavor is starting to become much more prevalent. The vapor still isn’t too hot given the Triforces very wide airflow. The tank itself is however getting very hot!
90W – Getting a tad too hot for my liking now, but the tank is still performing very well.
100W – Big clouds and good flavor, albeit the tank itself is getting razor hot.

I’d personally vape the Triforce at around 80W. That is my personal sweet-spot for this tank, but I have heard of others enjoying it at 100W.

Massive Air Flow and Clouds

CCI Triforce Airflow
CCI Triforce Airflow

The Triforce has a massively wide air flow and possibly the airiest one I have come across on any sub ohm tank to date! Whilst it isn’t really for me, I can see this being one of the main reasons many people will purchase this tank. The large air flow also leads to massive clouds, so those who enjoy cloud chasing and are used to airy RDAs, will definitely enjoy this tank. I have also point out that I think this tank works better with higher VG e-juice. I’d recommend using an e-juice with 70% VG or above.

3 in 1 Capability

​The Triforce has the capability to be a 3 in 1. This means that by purchasing the RTA extension kit, you can change the sub ohm tank into an RTA or RDA. It is a bit like the Rage 3 in 1, in that respect, but I won’t go in detail on it, as unfortunately they didn’t have the RTA extension available when this tank was shipped to us. The RTA extension kit also features a stainless steel top cap for the Triforce, which looks great. The extension kit is a great unique feature that I am sure many will be interested in.

Top Fill

The top fill is simple to use and there is one filling hole available at the top of the device. The Delrin top cap is reverse threaded and I found that the threading tended to flake a little when screwing and unscrewing, which isn’t great.

5ml Capacity

I like that the Triforce has a good capacity tank, given that it chucks some big clouds. The 5ml tank is a good size and if you need to refill, you can so do from the top easily.

Copper Positive Pin Extends Beyond 510 (for use with Hybrid mods)

The positive copper pin extends beyond the 510 connection. This means it will make a good connection with hybrid mods and will prevent shorting. It is something that not all sub ohm tanks have and is a good little feature.

Dislikes

Leaking

We had some major leaking issues whilst trying to get the Triforce up and running. Despite having the air flow holes shut when re-filling from the top, the e-juice would just run straight out of the air flow holes once opened to vape. I made sure to check the o-ring above the coil and ours was sitting flush, so not too sure what else would be causing it. We have the Triforce running now with no issues, but the first two times we tried to use it, it just leaked all over the place! Perhaps you will have better luck, as I have read that some people haven’t had any issues with theirs, so like a lot of tanks it seems to be a bit of a hit and miss issue.

Tall

The Triforce is one of the tallest sub ohm tanks we have tried so far, perhaps actually the tallest one. It doesn’t really bother me as you get a good e-juice capacity in return for it being so tall, but compared to other tanks it really does stand out in terms of height.

Replacement Coils are Expensive

The Triforce tank itself is not that cheap and at the time of writing is being sold for $44.99, which is at the pricier end of the sub ohm tank market. In comparison the Crown Uwell can be picked up for about $25 and comes with two spare coils and a spare glass, whereas the Triforce only comes with one spare coil and doesn’t come with the spare glass. A pack of replacement coils are not cheap and cost $24.99 which is the same price, as the expensive TFV4 coils. This is probably because of the large size of the coils, which means they use more material.

Verdict

The Triforce by Cloud Chasers Inc. is a great, albeit quite pricey, cloud chasing sub ohm tank, with some fantastic features. The fact it can be changed into an RTA or RDA with the extension kit, is something that makes this tank quite unique. The flavor was on the Kanthal coil was very good, but not quite up there with some of our favorite tanks. The 0.2ohm Kanthal head itself vaped very well and chucked massive clouds! The air flow is absolutely massive on this tank and if you like a wide open draw and chucking clouds then this sub ohm tank is for you.

    I have Herecles, Aspire Triton 1 & 2 plus a couple others, but my Tri Force is head & shoulders the best tank IMO. It’s the most consistent at higher temps and the air flow is on a different level. The top fill is so much easier than any others I own. I experienced the leaking but only on the first couple fills. Once the seals settled into the grooves it hasn’t happened since. I would highly recommend this tank.

    I have the Atlantis, matrix, herakles, herakles+, cyclone, crown, and tfv4…. Yes, I have a slight problem but I can say hands down the triforce is amazing. I too had the leaking issue on the first fill and haven’t had a single leak yet. I’m currently running it at 120 watts on my dna200 and loving life. My only complaints is that I prefer it on my releaux because of the high power demands and I wish the top fill hole were a little bigger. This is definitely my go to tank and my new benchmark. Highly recommended!

  • Scott Parsons

    I’m still trying to get this thing to quit leaking… Other than that it’s great.

  • Jonathon Hayes

    I’ve had this tank for about 3 months. Until now I’ve never had the leaking problem. i just deep cleaned And reset the O-ring. I hope that fixes it. The top cap threads have something wrong with them And won’t tighten. It just turns all around the tank endlessly, yes, I know the threads are reversed. I’ve tried both directions and it won’t tighten. I believe the threads are stripped
