Aspire Revvo Tank Review | Does the ARC Coil Deliver?

Aspire Revvo Tank intro

The Aspire Revvo is a sub ohm tank with a unique top-fill design that allows refilling through the drip tip. But the really interesting innovation here is the new ARC system (Aspire Radial Coil), which some have likened to the old-school “stovetop coils.” But for a sub ohm tank, this is new. Novelty aside, the question is: Does it fulfill the promise to deliver better vapor, flavor, and longevity?

Price: $29.99
Colors: black, chrome, stainless steel

Notable Remarks

Aspire Revvo Tank Features 

Aspire-revvo-tank

The Revvo tank features a new leakproof design that works very well. To fill it, there’s a funnel-like cone on a spring, inside the drip tip portion. You’ll need a fine-point bottle or glass dripper to fill it though; you can’t just pour juice in. Use the bottle to push down on the funnel cone and then squeeze. The bottom reservoir will fill up. It looks almost like an RDTA in design with the tank positioned under the coils.

To make the fill system work, you’re stuck with the proprietary drip tip. The conical fill port also acts as a spitback protector, which works well. I didn’t get any spitback with this tank.

The Revvo has adjustable top airflow with a stopper, so it doesn’t just spin freely. The airflow adjustment is smooth and easy to adjust, even when it’s on a mod. The tank has a 3.6 mL capacity, which isn’t bad, but a little on the small side. There’s also a 2 mL TPD version as well. When purchased in a kit, you will only get the stainless steel version but it’s also available in black and chrome when purchased separately.

Aspire Revvo Tank and ARC Coil Performance 

Aspire-revvo-tank

The Aspire Revvo Tank uses a new type of coil called the ARC (for Aspire Radial Coil). It’s the only option available for the tank and is labeled as a 0.10- 0.16 ohm Kanthal coil. Mine read at 0.15 ohms on the SkyStar mod. The coil itself is flat and looks like an electric stovetop coil. Imagine a notch coil but laid out flat. The idea behind it is to increase surface area in order to produce better flavor and more vapor.

I found the flavor to be just average for the required wattage though. It’s not bad by any means, but I’ve had better. I’ve also had worse tanks so it’s more of a “middle of the pack” performer. But coil life is excellent. Twenty days into writing this review and it’s still working well. I haven’t had any off-flavor or a gunked up coil yet. I suspect you’ll be able to typically get two to three weeks out of one coil.

The Revvo performs best at around 85 watts with the airflow half closed. I enjoyed it on the SkyStar mod in CPS mode, using 90 watts for 1 second, 85 watts for 1 second, 80 watts for 1 second, 75 watts for 2 seconds, and 70 watts the rest of the time.

Likes

  • Leakproof 
  • New coil system 
  • Great coil life 
  • Easy to fill 
  • No spitback 

Dislikes

  • Flavor and vapor is average 
  • Lack of coil and drip tip options 
  • Juice capacity is slightly low 

Verdict

With all that said, would I recommend this tank? Since the performance is just average, I have to lean toward no. It’s not a bad tank, and the leakproof feature is impressive. But the flavor and vapor are not outstanding, which leaves you deciding whether to buy a tank just to avoid leaks. To me, that’s not worth the money.

I started doing reviews at the end of 2016 bringing a unique amount of data and fair points that has made them grow in popularity. I’m an avid temp control vaper but will vape pretty much any style of vaping. My goal is to bring as much good, fair, and unbiased information to the forefront as i can to aid vapers in making informed decisions to get the best vape for their style. I enjoy helping people really get the most out of their vape and finding their “aha” moment when it all clicks into place.

An interesting comparison would be the Vandy Vape Maze sub ohm RDA. Tempting, if the flavor and vapor output is there.

I’m trying to get my hands on the Ample Mace Subohm Tank. It uses these kind of coils, but it puts the tank on top of the coil instead of underneath. Still not too sure if that would make it perform better for flavor and vapor, but I’d like to find out.

Well i mean the maze stole the coil design from aspire so likely pretty similar
