The New Updated Aspire Triton 2 – A Worthwhile Upgrade?
The Aspire Triton 2 is Aspire’s sequel to the Aspire Triton tank, which was a great design in principle but was slightly beset by some poor design ideas, such as the integrated glass tank and refilling system that had a tendency to leak, and also it wasn’t the cheapest sub ohm tank on the market either.
Aspire have revised the design of the Triton, and come up with the Triton 2, which on paper promises to be a much better effort from Aspire.
It features a revised top filling system, shortened height, the ability to fully disassemble the tank, brand new 0.5ohm Aspire Clapton coils, and also the ability the use the existing RBA deck and coils with the Triton 2 tank among a host of other new features.
Does the redesigned Triton make for a much better sub ohm tank from Aspire? Let’s find out…

Triton 2 Build, Quality & Looks
Now the biggest bug bear with the original Triton was the Pyrex glass tank section that could not be removed from the caged steel tank section. This meant not only did juice get stuck in between the tank section and the glass, but if you managed to crack or break the tank section you needed to purchase a whole new Triton tank.
This time around you can fully disassemble the Triton 2 to clean, and also Aspire have included a replacement glass tank section within the packaging. All in all, it’s not the best looker, but it’s constructed far better this time around! There is no adjustable airflow on the drip tip this time around, but a heat sink is found to help keep your vape cool.
The Triton 2 is slightly shorter this time around and as such the capacity is less than the original at 3ml. The same top fill system is in place which works very well, you set the rotating top cap to the drip symbol, unscrew the base of the drip tip to expose the fill ports, and once you have filled up with juice, set the top cap back to the vaping symbol.
This is really important as you will get some nasty dry hits if you forget to do so!
Note: The above instructions say to fill the hole. They don’t mean the center hole, just be sure to fill the tank around the center tube!
You have two coils included within the package, the gClapton and 1.8ohm Aspire coils, and an RBA deck is available for purchase separately should you prefer to build you own coils. Exisitng Aspire coils as well as Sense Herakles coils are also compatible with this tank.
The airflow control ring on the Aspire Triton 2 is one of the smoothest around, and the airflow control is really easy to use. There are two cyclops airflow slots on either side of the tank, and rotating the airflow control ring will close down or open up the airflow. Wide open gives some pretty good clouds, half open and under is ideal for mouth to lung vaping with the 1.8ohm coil.
How Does The Aspire Triton 2 Perform?
There are two coils included within the package, that sport kanthal coils and Japanese Organic Cotton wicking material- the new Aspire gClapton 0.5ohm coil for direct lung inhales, and the 1.8ohm Aspire coil for mouth to lung inhaling. The gClapton coil is pre-fitted and this was the first coil I experienced.
It is rated for use at 40-45w, however I have experienced great flavour results at 38w from this coil. Anything less and the flavour gets a little muted! At 45w the flavour is absolutely superb and I really enjoyed the flavour from the Aspire Triton at this range, however I did notice the tank did get quite hot when using it at this power.
Vapour was pretty decent at this range however not quite up there with the best tanks around. I also have to mention that the Triton 2 is a very thirsty tank with the gClapton coil, I found myself refilling the tank fairly often! It did wick juice up to 70VG very well, at above this I found it still wicked even higher VG juice but dry hits crept in when chain vaping.
The 1.8ohm coil is designed for mouth to lung vaping. Now I must admit that I haven’t mouth to lung vaped for a very long time! However this tank combined with the 1.8ohm coil could very well get me back into it!
This coil is all about flavour and it does it very well. 12 watts was my preferred setting, and the flavour was very good indeed, however if you are chasing clouds then this coil is not the one for you!
All in all, this is a massive improvement on the original Triton tank, that gave pretty underwhelming results despite the high price tag.
Final Aspire Triton 2 Review Verdict
Aspire have pulled it out of the bag here with a sub ohm tank that far outperforms the original Triton. It’s by no means the perfect sub ohm tank, but it’s built on the great design ideas from the original Triton and the result is a tank that improves on the original Triton in all aspects.
Possibly the biggest improvement is the redesigned looks, and the ability to disassemble the tank, which makes it much easier to maintain the parts. The price is more realistic as well, and the flavour from this tank is superb from the two supplied coils even if the vapour isn’t the biggest around.
The Aspire Triton 2 is a tank that truly does cater for the mouth to lung and lung vaper, and it’s a great option for flavour chasers out there.
- Can now be fully disassembled
- Replacement glass included in the box!
- Can mouth to lung or lung hit
