Introduction to the Mace X Tank by Ample
The Ample Mace X tank is from a manufacturer I’m not familiar with. After a quick googling, they seem to specialise on tanks and follow the trends on the market.
This tank is no exception as it copies the Aspire Revvo tank and its coils. However the Mace X has tweaked the tank and made a much better version. So let’s start off how we always do with what you get inside the box.

Design and Build Quality
I have to say the build quality is almost perfect. Clean threads that glide on and off, solid materials and clean parts make for a great tank. This product however is not perfect, the one main thing that let it down from being 10/10 for build quality is the loose drip tip.
The drip-tip is loose, very loose. It has so much movement that you can notice it when vaping. It is such a shame as the whole tank looks and feels like class but to only be let down by a small but important part.
The design it pretty standard with a top filling removable top.
The main unique feature is the coils, their design is very similar to the Aspire Revvo which uses a flat maze style plate.
The main differences to the revvo is the coil placement in the tank, the Maze-X sits at the bottom this allows for better wicking. I don’t have a massive issue with Ample copying Aspire because they took an idea and improved on it, if they had copied it 100% then I wouldn’t see any point in that.
How Does the Ample Mace X Tank Perform?
First let’s have a quick look at how we replace the coil and fill the tank.
Replacing The Coil
- Unscrew Base ensuring top piece comes away from the coil
- Unscrew coil and replace
How To Fill The Ample Mace X
- Unscrew top cap
- Fill through kidney shaped holes
- Replace top cap
- Let sit for 10 minutes to allow juice to soak
Flavour and Vapour
The main thing people look for is flavour and the Ample Mace X has a whole load of it. It is just slightly behind the flavour of mesh coils but greater than that of the revvo tank.
Vapour goes hand in hand with flavour and you can expect some serious clouds with this tank when running it on the higher wattages with high VG e-liquid. The only downside to this is you will be running through a lot of e-liquid and soon that cost all adds up.
The next big point for coils after flavour and clouds is the life of the coil. After a month of testing I found a massive dip in flavour after its first week. You can push the coil to its limits and use it for two weeks but anything more than that is too much.
- Great Flavour
- Good Build Quality
- Coil life
- Drinks Eliquid
- Very loose Drip Tip
I actually really enjoyed the Ample Mace X tank. It was a happy relief that this one was better than the Revvo and if I had to pick it is an easy choice the Mace-X is literally just a better Revvo tank.
Now compared to other sub ohm tanks it doesn’t quite stack up to the mesh ones on the market but it isn’t too far away. The great build quality and manufacturing is becoming more of the norm out of china now and Ample does not disappoint, if it wasn’t for the drip tip it would be practically perfect.
Unfortunately for Ample they spent all this time and effort to correct the next evolution of coil for it to only evolve again to mesh coils and make the Mace-X coil redundant.
I do believe there is a place for this tank with people who enjoyed the Revvo, they must try this one. I personally would give this one a miss and look to buy a mesh tank.
