Horizontech Arctic Turbo Intro

Today we look at the Horizontech Arctic Turbo sub ohm tank. The Arctic Turbo is a similar style sub ohm tank to the Smowell Hatrick, in that it comes with three coils (sextuple coils). The Arctic Turbo triples coils are different in that they are three separate removable coils, whereas the Hatrick coils were stuck together as one whole piece.

The Arctic Turbo has a top filling mechanism very similar to that on the TFV4 Mini and standard TFV4. The Arctic Turbo also has a bizarre fan in the chimney, which is removable and most likely to prevent spit-back or to cool the vapor.

Let’s see how this triple coil set-up fares below!

Notable Remarks

Vaping the Arctic Turbo with all 3 Coils Installed

We used our standard Fa-Q e-juice which is a 75% VG e-liquid and used our SMOK X-Cube II box mod.

40W – Not much in terms of vapor.
60W –Massive clouds now already, as you would expect from the three coils. Not much at all in terms of flavor.
80W – The clouds this thing chuck are huge. The flavor slowly starting to rear its little head now as well, but only just.
100W – Chucking the clouds at 100W and the vape is now a pretty warm vape. The tank itself is getting really hot. The flavor is ok, but not great.
120W – Now it is verging on a dry hit. I’d stay at around 80 – 100W depending on how warm you want your vape.

You can also take one of the three coils out of the tank and replace it with one of the “blank” coils that comes with the kit. The kit comes with 2 blank coils, so you can vape with only one or two coils if you want.

I tried vaping two coils with one blank in and the device then reads at 0.3 ohm. It vapes fine, but I still can’t really get much flavor. The clouds were still amazing, but there was little flavour coming through.


Big Clouds and Good Vape Quality

The quality of vapor is really fantastic. The clouds are huge and nice and dense. I was able, with all three coils installed, to vape up to around 100-110W with no issues. At 120W it was verging on a dry hit and the vapor was quite hot. If big clouds are your thing, then the three coils in the Turbo will definitely satisfy your needs.

Top Fill

The top fill function on the Turbo works really well and I so far I haven’t had any major leaking issues. The top fill has a silicon cover on the top with a slit for your dripper to re-fill, which is almost identical to the SMOK TFV4.

Air Flow

The air flow features a bottom and a top air flow system. The ring for the top was a bit loose and had the tendency to spin out of place when touching it lightly. The top air flow ring also collects a little bit of e-juice due to the fan section collecting condensation and juice inside it.The bottom air flow fully open is really nice and similar to the SMOK TFV4.

Good Overall Build Quality

The build quality is very good on the Arctic Turbo and everything feels well put together. The top fill works well and the pieces all screw together nicely.


3 Separate Coils is not a Good Idea

​I don’t get why having three separate coils would be a good idea. No let me re-phrase that, I don’t see the point of having three coils in a sub ohm tank. Having them separate is probably better than having them as one piece (as is the case with the Smowell Hatrick). At least if one coil burns out quicker than the other, you can try and work out which one is burnt and replace it with a new one.

However, having said that there is a lot that can go wrong and the triple coil set-up is just unnecessary in my opinion. The coils will all burn through at different rates and when one becomes burnt, you will need to try and work out which one of the three, needs to be replaced. It just won’t work well in the long run. Having 3 coils will also be expensive as you are getting through 3 coils at the same time instead of one. I just think it’s completely unnecessary feature.

Lack of Flavor

If the triple coil system, produced sensational flavor, I could get over the points I just mentioned. However, I didn’t think the flavor on the Arctic Turbo was exceptional. It wasn’t bad, but in my opinion it seemed quite muted. Like when we reviewed the Smowell Hatrick and TFV4 Triple coils, we were expecting massive flavor, but both times were left slightly disappointed. The coils on the Arctic Turbo were pretty similar and just didn’t blow us away in terms of flavor.

Fan System

I have no clue what the point of the fan system is. Perhaps it is to help cool the vapor or reduce spitback? Either way it makes a loud racket when you vape with it installed and in my opinion adds nothing to the quality of the vape. Fortunately you can take it out. We vaped the Arctic Turbo with the fan in and out, I personally I couldn’t tell any difference in the performance of the vape.

RBA Section Doesn’t Screw In

The RBA section (available separately) is very odd and doesn’t actually screw into place in the tank anywhere. It just floats in the device, which is just downright bizarre. Check out Mike Vapes video where he looks at the RBA section here (8.44 onwards).

4ml Tank Capacity

The triple coil or sextuple coil design, whatever you want to call it, drinks e-juice ridiculously quickly. The 4ml tank will only last around 50 puffs before you will need re-fill the tank. At least it has top fill, so re-filling isn’t too difficult. Still I would have enjoyed a larger tank.


The Arctic Turbo produces massive clouds of vapor and vapes very solidly at high wattages. It is also well made and has a great top filling system. However, I don’t think the triple separate coils system works that well and I think it is a bit of a flawed concept. It could be slightly justified if the flavor was out of this world, but unfortunately it isn’t. A lot of single coil sub ohm tanks produce far better flavor.


If you are after huge clouds at high wattages then perhaps the Arctic is worth a try. However, if you have already tried a load of sub ohm tanks and are looking for flavor then I can’t really recommend the Arctic Turbo.

    I run 2 coils around 40-45 watts and only replace one coil at a time. Since I got the tank for Christmas I’ve only bought one other 5 pack of coils and still have 3 left in that pack. That’s pretty well with using it none stop since I was a chain smoker before I switched to a vaporizer. I rarely use the fan and can’t decide if it provides any benefit or not.

  • Yung Bee

    I use it with 2 coils at 50-55 watts and the flavor is the best out of all of my tanks. At 65 watts flavor rivals that of my drippers… the clouds are thick and dense, but not the biggest I can chuck volume wise…
