Having made their mark on the sub-ohm clearomizer market with the Atlantis, Aspire have returned with a new tank -the Triton. The Triton is a versatile clearomizer which can be used with a 1.8ohm atomizer as an ordinary mouth-to-lung vape, or with a 0.4ohm atomizer for sub-ohm use. There is also an RDA option too, for those who prefer to build their own atomizers.
Costing £33.99, the Triton is priced at the upper end of the sub-ohm market, costing more than popular models such as the Aspire Atlantis and the Kanger Subtank. But do the features and performance match the price tag?
Capacity and Build Quality
The tank itself has a 3.5ml capacity, which is 0.5ml bigger than the Atlantis 2, but still not quite as big as you’d want or expect of a sub-ohm tank. Since sub-ohm vaping tends to use much more ejuice than mouth-to-lung, a capacity of just 3.5ml means that Triton users will need to refill much more often than, for example, Kanger Subtank users who have a 4.5ml capacity. That said, the Triton is a top-filling tank, which means that re-filling it is extremely easy, fast and clean. You simply click the top of the tank towards the e-juice logo and it comes straight off.
Capacity aside, the actual build quality of the Triton is amazing. Made of stainless steel and pyrex glass, it looks and feels great and is a synch to take apart and put back together. The tank is glass with a steel housing, which makes it much more durable and resilient to knocks and drops. It feels like a premium quality tank and all the moving parts seem just as strong and reliable as the rest of the clearomizer.
Airflow and Resistance
The Triton has a great airflow system, with a fully adjustable bottom airhole and drip tip airhole, which means that vapers can find the perfect balance between vapour volume and temperature, which is especially important for sub-ohm vapers who use high power settings.
However, this isn’t just a sub-ohm clearomizer; one of the biggest selling points for the Triton is its versatility, as it takes both 1.8ohm coils and sub-ohm coils. It uses its own Triton specific coils which use organic Japanese cotton wicking and are housed in stainless steel. It also has an RDA kit, which unfortunately is sold separately at £7.99, which we feel is a little steep considering the price of the Triton as it is.
Vapour Production and Flavour
Across all the resistances, the Triton performed extremely well. With the 1.8ohm atomizer, it produced great flavour regardless of the air flow, and when the airholes were opened up it produced a lot of vapour for a mouth-to-lung vape. Even when used for long periods of time with higher VG e juices, dry hits were few and far between and the wicking was consistently excellent. The flavour and vapour production were easily as good as the Aspire Nautilus, if not better, which would make it a perfect all day device for a mouth-to-lung vaper.
At 0.4ohms, the Triton really came into its own. Vaping at 30W gave us incredible flavour intensity and vapour production, with huge clouds and no dry hits.
At 0.3ohms, we think the sweet spot is around 60W. Although it produces huge amounts of vapour and tastes great, the tank does get extremely hot, and the vape itself can get really warm.
- Fantastic build quality
- Easy top-fill design
- Fantastic at 1.8ohms for everyday mouth-to-lung vapers
- Fantastic flavour and vapour at 0.4 ohms for sub-ohm vapers
- Great wicking and all round performance from the coils
- Adjustable airflow system on the bottom and drip-tip gives vapers a lot of control
- 3.5ml capacity a little too small for sub-ohm tank
- Gets very hot when used with 0.3ohm coil
- RTA kit costs extra
- The price is high for a clearomizer of this standard, when compared to the Atlantis 2, Subtank or iSub G
Although the Triton is priced at the top of the market, it more than performs to the standard you’d expect with incredible vapour and flavour production whether used as a sub-ohm tank or as an everyday mouth-to-lung tank. Infact, we’d go as far as to say that with the 1.8ohm coils, this is one of the best tasting clearos we’ve ever used.
That said, at £33.99 it is more expensive than many other leading clearomizers which have many of the same features. If you’re looking for a clearomizer which performs well and has incredible build quality, this is the tank for you. However, if you’re looking for value-for-money, you’d be better off looking elsewhere.
