Aspire Triton Sub Ohm Tank Review

Aspire Triton Intro

Today we review the Aspire Triton sub ohm tank. The Aspire Triton is Aspires latest sub ohm tank and follows on from their already impressive Aspire 2 tank.

The Aspire Triton is a top filling sub ohm tank with a 3.5ml tank capacity. The Aspire Triton comes with 0.4ohm and 1.8ohm coils. The 0.4ohm coil is capable of 25-30W and the 1.8ohm coil is intended for mouth to lung vaping at 10-13W. There is also a 0.3ohm coil option available capable of 55-65W.

Interestingly enough the 0.3 and 0.4ohm coils are stainless steel coil heads, like we have seen on the Crown Uwell. The 1.8ohm coil uses traditional Kanthal and is intended for mouth to lung vaping and could therefore make the Triton an alternative for the wildly popular Nautilus and Nautilus Mini.

There is also an RBA section (RTA as Aspire call it) available to be purchased separately for $12. The Aspire Triton tank is currently priced at $50 on the Aspire site, but I am sure this will fall slightly when it hits the shops to around $45.

  • RBA option now available and can be purchased separately
  • Protective steel casing around the Pyrex glass
  • Removable 510 Drip tip compatible with other drip tips (Atlantis 2 had a wider bore drip tip)
  • Heat sink added to the drip tip to help keep it cool

Vaping on the 1.8ohm (Wattage 10-13W)

The 1.8ohm coil is a new addition and is intended for mouth to lung vaping, which will be more suited for slightly higher PG e-juices. We actually tried the 1.8ohm with a 75% VG e-liquid to see how it fared with slightly higher VG.

You will need to close the top air flow for mouth to lung vaping on this coil and restrict the bottom air flow to a small amount for the draw to become tighter.

If you restrict the air flow then you can get a decent mouth to lung draw on this coil. It vapes well between the recommended 10-13W range and is a good mouth to lung vaping option.

We then opened up the air flow and lung inhaled on the coil with the 75% VG e-juice and I have to say the flavor was really nice. It was a completely different flavor compared with the lower resistance stainless steel coils. Having vaped so many lower resistance sub ohm coils, it actually made a nice difference and the flavor was great. You obviously won’t be getting much in the way of clouds, but that is to be expected.

So how does this 1.8ohm coil compare to the BVC coils on the Nautilus Mini for instance? Well I think the flavor is much better and this coil is a very good mouth to lung vape. Even chain vaping it on the high VG juice, it wicked superbly and there were no dry hits. If you want an alternative to the Nautilus for mouth to lung vaping, then the Triton is a good choice and comes with a good amount of e-juice.

Vaping the 0.4ohm stainless steel coil (25-30W)

We used our Fa-Q Miss Samoa max Vg juice as always and vaped this coil on the Innokin Disrupter.

​20W – Not much happening at 20W
25W – Ok vapor and ok flavor
30W – Better flavor now and pretty cool vape. Clouds aren’t that big
35W – Coil still wicking well at 35W and no dry hit issues with nice flavor

I’d recommend vaping around 30-35W on the 0.4ohm Triton coil. The tank and vapor stays noticeably cooler then on the 0.3ohm coil. I also think the flavor is better on this coil than on the 0.3ohm coil.

Vaping the 0.3ohm coil (55-65W)

We vaped the Triton 0.3ohm coil on our IPV4 with the same max VG e-juice as above.

50W – Not much vapor and flavor. The Triton tank itself is already getting quite hot!
55W – Warm vape already but still not great flavor or clouds. The bottom of the tank is roasting hot!
60W – Vapor is getting quite hot now and the tank itself is almost too hot to touch, which is a negative. This is despite all air flows being wide open.
65W – Just not getting great flavor and seems to be a bit muted. It isn’t as good as the flavor we got from the 0.4ohm coil.

We were not the biggest fans of the 0.3ohm coil as the flavor for us was slightly muted and the tank itself got considerably warm.


Interchangeable Coils

The Aspire Triton is compatible with all the Aspire Atlantis 2 coil heads, so you will be able to use the 0.5ohm and 1ohm coils with this tank. The Vaporshark Ni200 coils will also work well with this tank with a temp sensing mod like the IPV4.

Top Fill

Aspire Triton Top Fill

The Aspire Triton tank is a top filling tank. In order to fill the tank from the top you will need to twist the top of the tank towards the e-liquid logo. This will click nicely into place and you can now fill from the top without any leaking. Just be sure to close it again, by twisting it back to vaping mode once you are done filling it. The juice holes at the top aren’t the biggest, but that shouldn’t be much of an issue.

1.8 ohm coil for mouth to lung

This coil impressed us most and provided a fantastic mouth lung vape with great flavor. I think this coil adds great versatility to the Aspire Triton and will be well suited to those who enjoy mouth to lung vaping. Flavor wise it was more impressive than the Nautilus Mini BVC coils and better then the coil heads on the Ego one. My brother says this will replace his Nautilus as his all day mouth to lung vape.

Build quality

Aspire Triton Airflow

​The Aspire Triton tank is very well built and the whole tank came really clean. The threading on the Triton is great and buttery smooth. Overall the whole tank looks good and feels very well made.

Flavor on the 0.4ohm and 1.8ohm coils was great

The flavor was really good on the 0.4ohm coil head as well as on the 1.8ohm head. I am not sure what was going on with the 0.3ohm head, as we found it to be very muted flavor wise. Perhaps it was a bad coil, so let us know what you thought of the 0.3ohm stainless steel head!

The only other stainless steel coil heads we have tried were on the Crown by Uwell and in my opinion, the flavor on those coils topped the Aspire Triton ones, but the 0.4ohm Triton one wasn’t far off.


I think the 1.8ohm coil for mouth to lung makes this tank quite a versatile one, as it can be used as a sub ohm tank and also as a standard mouth to lung clearomizer with plenty of e-juice. If you factor the other Atlantis 2 coils that can be used with this tank, as well as the additional RBA, then there is plenty of different vaping options for everyone.

RBA section available

​There is an RBA section available for the Aspire Triton, which will please many users. However, it does need to be purchased separately for $12, which is a slight shame as I would have liked to have seen it included in the kit given the Triton’s quite hefty price tag.

Removable 510 drip tip

The Atlantis 2 came with a very wide bore drip tip which meant you couldn’t use your own 510 drip tips. The Triton now has a removable 510 drip tip so you can now use your own drip tips should you want to. The drip tip also features additional air flow and a heat sink to keep the drip tip cool.

Great air flow

Aspire Triton Coil Airflow

The air flow on the Triton is about the same as the Atlantis 2 and provides a great selection of varying draws, depending on how you set the bottom air flow holes and the drip tip air flow. I like that there is the option of having the drip tip air flow and this can be easily opened and closed to find your suited preference.


Steel cover around the tank

Aspire Triton Top Fill Switch

The steel cover is great, in that you are unlikely to break the Pyrex glass tank and it adds extra protection. However, if you do break the glass, you cannot just purchase a new glass and will instead have to purchase a whole new tank. Now, I am not going to test throwing the Triton on the floor to see how easy it is to break the glass, but bear this in mind when you purchase this tank. It is the same sort of tank design as the OBS T-VCT.

Coil sits quite high in the tank

The coil itself sits quite high in the tank. This means that the juice flow holes on the coil also sit quite high. When the e-juice goes below this level and it does with around 0.5ml left in the tank, the coil will start dry hitting as the juice flow holes won’t be covered in e-juice any longer. This means you will always have around 0.5ml of e-juice sitting at the bottom of the tank that can’t be used.

Tank doesn’t come fully apart

The glass is non-removable and this makes the tank a little tricky to clean and empty of remaining e-liquid. If you want to switch flavors you will need to empty the remaining e-liquid through either the top or through the juice flow holes through the bottom and then rinse out the tank with water. You won’t be able to take the tank fully apart and take the glass out, which is slightly annoying as we like to take the tank apart fully to give it a clean every now and then. It’s not a major negative at all but something that we came across.


The Aspire Triton is currently selling for around $50. It will no doubt get a little cheaper with more vendors stocking it. I still think that even at $45, it is quite expensive. When you consider other sub ohm tanks are retailing around $30 for the same sort of stuff, then $50 is quite steep. The new white and black subtank minis are retailing around $33 and they also include the RBA sections as part of the kit.

RBA not included in the kit

I like that Aspire created an RBA section for the Triton (they call it RTA), but you will need to purchase it separately for another $12, which is a lot when you consider the tank already costs $50. I would like to see it included in the kit for the $50 price tag.

3.5ml Capacity

The Triton has 0.5ml more than the Atlantis 2, but I still feel for a sub ohm tank that it needs to have at least 4-5ml. These tanks on the lower ohm coils get through tonnes of e-juice, so having a bigger capacity would be more favourable from my point of view.

Heat on the 0.3ohm coil

The Aspire Triton tank got very hot when using the 0.3ohm coil. At the higher wattages it became so hot you could barely touch it.


Overall I think Aspire have created a very versatile tank, capable of sub ohm vaping as well as being able to vape mouth to lung.

The new stainless steel coil heads are interesting and the 0.4ohm coil for us produced great flavor, whereas the 0.3ohm didn’t.

The 1.8 ohm coil is a great addition and will make the Triton a great option for those looking for a new mouth to lung tank. I think the flavor on the Triton 1.8ohm coil was a lot better than on the Nautilus BVC coils and better than those on the Joyetech Ego One.

The top filling function is a great addition to the tank and the air flow is fantastic. The overall build quality is great, but I still think the price is slightly on the high side.

Going forward I would like to see the RBA section as part of the kit, as in that case I think the $50 is a much more reasonable amount.

Overall the Aspire Triton is a great tank; however I still think there are some areas for improvement!

I filled up my new triton about an hour ago taste horrible and burned tried to turn down and up wattage is there something I am missing.


I have a Triton tank on my sigelei 150 tc and love it. I’m using a .15 coil and was just curious of what wattage I should run it at. Or is it all in personal preference. My only issue with the tank is it sometimes leaks pretty bad if if it gets hot. Like if I leave it in the car when it’s hot outside.


I have a cool fire 4TC 100w. I have a Smok h-Priv, 220w. I am waiting on a new cloud beast, (I bought a bad one from a vape shop off ebay). The Triton Aspire tank was given to me by my son. I began vaping at 74w. Hense the 100w, then 220w. I am presently using the aspire tank on my Smok Priv. This tank is Awesome. It is my go to tank. It hold’s my watts. Flavor is always great w/the 0.4 coils. Best tank I have had so far. No one can go wrong w/this tank. I would add, close air flow when not using. Prefer top air flows. GREAT TANK. Rocking flavor. Easy fill. Always will be my go 2 tank. Buy this. No RegretS.


So I ran to my local vape shop indy eciggs and purchased my normal 0.3 ohm aspire coils and noticed that the new price and packaging states that the 0.3 can run 70-80w so I had a talk with the guys and they said these coils work perfect with the tank. And I have to say after 3 days of vaping with my triton tank and my reuleaux RX200W mod this is the best setup out there. And I disagree with this article in the statement made about hthe heat is too intense at 60w I’m running 75w with the air flow maxed out house blend pink starblast and the flaver is amazing the tank never gets crazy hot either I’m thoroughly impressed!


I bought an aspire triton mini it was ok at first then after 2 days it leaked like fossett turned on full
Took it back to the shop where they had a look at it
They said there was a bit of fluff in the coil possibly the wick used in the coil they changed the coil and it seems ok now I will wait and see


A .4 been hitting it at 65 watts and nice and little wet. All depends on the juice and batteries. Usually Im at 40 or 45, My peguses craped out. Battery door it quick. Over time setting it dow or a drop. It starts popping open, and then you get caught up switching back to watts from the temperature mode sucks. But I loved the size. Had to go to a back up box I had istick eleaf 100 watt cheap but I sont know why yet. Seams to work bitching and has a great fire button. I did love peguses. Screw all the decimal points. who gives a shit between 45.3 or 45.7 had to add grip tape tp it its so dam click to hold and heavy for lanyard. I usually keep top air closed but when I do I may spin to fill setting to or you forget. Man it gets dry and burnt fast.


Anyone know if this’ll fit on this ( I’m new to vaping…

Alex Kendell

I sadly get a 404 message using that link, but from what I can see you linked the Sigelei 50W box mod, that is perfect to use with the triton. To use the lower ohmage coils for the Triton I would suggest getting a higher wattage box mod.


I currently use the Triton .3 ohm and have been more then happy. My setup is with an IPV4 @ 50watts, juice is made by Slims 70/30 (pg/vg) with extra flavor. Cloud is good but not heavy and the flavor is like taking a real bite of fruit. I vape lung inhale and not had any issues with heat even after 3 repeat draws.
My issues would only be that a 5ml tank should have been used. The usable 3ml goes very fast. Have also tried the Triton with my Sigelel 150 without much success. Burns through the batteries way to fast and no one wants to carry a pocket full of batteries. I do have the Triton I seeing it has the stainless steel wrap around metal. I did get one that doesn’t leak like when it first hit the market, bought from Aspires main site not Aspire USA. Coming from an Atlantis 2 I feel, except for the filling, no reason for anyone to swap to this one. Its a good sub ohm but like computers it was out of date a week after it hit the market it seems.

Alex Kendell

This is sadly the issue with the sub ohm market, nearly most of the tanks are “out of date” 1-2 weeks after retail. Tank capacity is also one of the main issues, 5ml would have been perfect and is definitely a must have in the market. PS. Don’t fill your pockets with loose batteries, very bad idea, lol.


Hey, are you going to do a review of the Triton 2? I have only found one and it was no where near as comprehensive as the reviews you provide. I need to replace my entire setup and can’t make up my mind on what tank to go with, previously running (chain vaping) a Delta II on iStick 50w.

Alex Kendell

Hi Jer, first off thanks for the kinds words, sadly we have not yet reviewed the Triton 2. It is on our list (with about 50 other tanks, lol). We are currently testing the Herakles Plus and that seems to be one of the best tanks out there, if you like that kind of long and thin type of tank you should definitely try it! As for the box mod, there a quite a few awesome ones out there, if you dig the iStick 50W then I should suggest getting the iStick 100W or the 60W TC. If you want to go for a higher wattage device then I suggest you get the KOOPOR Plus (also great for TC) or the xCube II. Going for high wattage TC mods? Then you should try to go for Sigelei Fuchai, Sigelei 150W TC, Wismec RX200 or maybe even the Volcano Lavabox. Hope that helps!


I don’t know the science behind vaping, I leave that to my hubby, but I do know I like the new Triton tank as much if not more than my Nautilus tank. I’ve tried a few tanks now, usually ones hubby buys but doesn’t like or his cast offs when he does find a new one he likes and I’ve only ever had one stipulation and that is I want a tank I don’t have to fill 20 times a day!! The Nautilus ticked this box but despite having a smaller capacity so now does the Triton because of its piece of cake top fill ability. My Nautilus never leaks and contrary to other reviews neither does my Triton (unless I get uber low on liquid, but ALL the tanks I’ve tried up to now have done that), I’m vaping at 15w on my Nautilus and 13w on the Triton and love them both!! A good tip for the Triton is when it’s not in use for a while i.e. whilst working or sleeping, keep it upright and turn the filling cap to “fill”, this aparently stops liquid constantly seeping down to the coil and flooding it whilst it’s not being used, just don’t forget to turn the filling cap back to “vape” again before you start.

Alex Kendell

Hey Kristine, thanks for the info! Awesome stuff!


I gotta say aside from minor leaking I love this tank, not sure if I enjoy it as much as my OG Atlantis, but it is up there with it. As far as the .3 ohm coils I agree that they get WAY too hot, but the .4’s are AMAZING up to 45-50w.

Vader Van Vlichtenstein

hey I have a problem and was wondering if I could get some help. I’m kinda new to ecigs. I have an e-vlt vaporizer? and an aspire triton tank. when I try to fire up the tank my ecig reads 0.0A and wont fire up. anyone have any advice on how to fix this?

Alex Kendell

Do you mean that it reads at 0.0 ohm? If so, try and take you tank apart and give a nice clean (dry it carefully). The issue with the Triton is that it sometimes gets e-liquid at the base connection of the coil and it tends to have ohm reading issues. Hope that helps!


Question, is there a difference between the coils of the Atlantis and Triton? I read somewhere that the Triton coils are not as tall at the top as they are supposed to be, and could be the cause of leakage. If I put in the Atlantis coil, would it fix this? Also, my leak seems to have came from the bottom AFC slot, but has stopped. I cleaned it with both water and alcohol after the leak, let it sit for a few weeks, and haven’t had a leak yet. I still plan on buying new coils, as well as trying an Atlantis coil, in the tank. If anyone advises against this, please let me know! 🙂 thanks guys

Chris Kendell

Hi Ron. The Atlantis and Triton coils are exactly the same height and overall size, so I don’t think that will cause any leakages.


So I bought this yesterday at a vape store. The coil that was already in it was a 1.8Ohm Aspire coil (black o-rings) it didn’t fire at all andthe light on my Cool Fire II stayed on for a few seconds after release. The extra coil it came with was also an Aspire 1.8 Ohm but it had blue o-rings, that works fine. Only problem is, when I take the coil out, there is liquid underneath by the connection part. At one point it was green and bubbly. All of my equipment is brand new. Any advice please? I don’t want to have just wasted my money, or end up ruining my mod. Any suggestions on stopping this leak?

Alex Kendell

I think the 1.8 coil has blue o-rings and not black ones. I guess you mean the .4 ohm coil in your first sentence. I also had the issue of having a bit of liquid at the connection part but it was not leaking, it was just there once I took the coil out. May I ask what e-liquid you are using? Do both coils have the o-rings on the bottom above the threading? I can only suggest for you to take the tank apart and give it a good clean, dry it out and put it all back together. If you still have the issue of it leaking you will need to try a new coil. I am guessing the .4 ohm coil (the one with the black o-rings) does not have the silicon o-ring above the threading anymore and that can cause leaking issues. Hope I could help, let me know if you still have any issues. Thanks


Yes I did mean the .4 ohm was the one that came inside it. I’ve been using Pinup Vapors Betty ejuice in it, mostly VG. The 1.8 coil works on my coolfire 2 but the tank leaks at the bottom AFC, I’m going to buy new 1.8s and also try the Atlantis coils, but I’m also buying the Kanger Subtank Mini and either the Coolfire 4 or the Istick 50w. Maybe I can see the real potential of the Triton. Hasn’t leaked yet after a few days after cleaning and drying. Let the same juice sit in it for a couple days, light usage yesterday and day before at 10.5 watts. No leak yet. Maybe I just had a bad experience at first, can’t tell yet. I’m hoping that I didn’t waste cash on this because I really like it, LOL


I bought the aspire triton a few weeks ago and am using it on my Kanger kbox mini. It works fantastic with Betty… Which is also my choice juice! No leaking issues, I just burned through a coil fairly quickly due to chain vaping. But otherwise I love this setup and I’m also looking at an Istick 50w tc to play with temps a bit. But I’m sure you’ll love the Triton just as much as I do!

Alex Kendell

I am sure you didn’t and I am glad that it is not leaking for now. Good luck and vape on! Enjoy your new gear!


I was advised not to purchase the Triton due to many leaking issues…. I was planning on getting the Atlantis 1. Of course they were out of the Atlantis, and wanted was totally upgrading from my original Nautilus. The reason I purchased this is because 2 Pyrex tubes were broken on the hardwood floor. I hate this tank! There are no nickel coils by Aspire to purchase leaving me with the only option of using .2 Hercules nickel coils. After a week, I have NO flavor in 80/20 VG/PG blend 6mg nicotine and minimal air flow. I’m not a cloud person, I prefer the replacement throat hit, as I quit smoking and started vaping about 4 years ago. My Nautilus on a vision spinner 2 worked much better…. The coils really suck if you want to use a TC Mod… I LOVE my Eleaf Istick 40 Watt TC Mod.
Thank you for mentioning changing the flavor issue… The employee where I purchased this, tried one of his Hercules Nickel coils, which was used in Cucumber Melon….. I have changed the coils 2 times ($10.00) this week trying to get back to my tobacco flavor and no Cucumber Melon, having to dump liquid and rinsed out tank. Yes, condensation for days, this tank has consumed so much of my time, money, and patience that I’m taking it back to the store where I very much overpaid $60.00 for it. When I used the Nautilus and Vision Spinner 2, I refilled the tank every other day, coil changed every 2-3 weeks or longer, and battery swap 1x a day. Clean and simple to disassemble and clean thoroughly (I’m a little OCD when I clean my tank daily) and the Triton has consumed hours of my life in the 2 weeks I’ve had it! I hate it, it’s ridiculous to overpay for the Eleaf Istick 40W TC and a tank I absolutely despise. I was told when I purchased it that you just push the middle button on the Istick to change from wattage to TC, I noticed it kept going back to wattage everytime I pushed the button. When I went back, he said no, you have to have nickel coils…. Frustrating… But the Triton is much of the frustration! Don’t purchase it unless you have countless hours to clean it, fill it, find a coil etc….


Sorry you are not enjoying the Triton. This is the only tank where I have not had dry hits from stock coils. Minor leaking when I didn’t close air whole before refilling (make sure you do). Also try lowering the VG to 70/30 or 60/40. Vaporshark make compatible NI200 coils that are also very good. No subohm tank is perfect so it’s about finding the right one for you.

Chris Kendell

Sorry to hear you had such a bad time with it. Ours has worked great so far!


Video isn’t working 🙁

Alex Kendell

Fixed! Thanks for the heads up Jon!


I must say I’m more than happy with the new Aspire Triton. I’m using their new 0.4 ohm coil on an iStick 50w, set at 34w (3.6v) with 70/30 VG/PG juice. Great taste, great clouds.
I’m also considering retiring my beloved Mini Nautilus to buy a second Triton, to use their new 1.8ohm coils for mouth to lung vaping’.
Yes I’m that impressed.

Alex Kendell

I am with you all the way on that! Love it, vaping on it as we speak.


Hey….,is the flavour on the 0.4 ohm coils better than the new coils heads on the black and white subtank mini??

Chris Kendell

Not much to choose between them tbh Arka. I found the Aspire coils take a little longer to saturate and provide good flavor.


Ok….,so till now which is the best sub ohm tank for flavour according to you??

Chris Kendell

Crown by Uwell or the Freemax Starre


And does this have that much airflow as the Atlantis v2??

Chris Kendell

Not as much no, more than the new subtank though. The Atlantis 2 had the biggest air flow I have come across, maybe alongside the High voltage.

buck steadyVapin Raw

Will you guy’s @ vaping360 do a complete review on the rta for the triton?

Chris Kendell

If we find the time we will do it!
