The Looks, Build and Features of the Aspire Triton Tank
The Triton is quite a attractive tank. It is very well machined as you would expect a Aspire product to be and all the parts fit together well.
The main body of the tank is a one piece design featuring stainless steel and pyrex. The airflow control is easily adjusted due to it have a notched design. The top most part of the tank features both a heat sink and one of those air fans/vents that a lot of manufacturers are adding to their designs of late.
What is nice is that the air fan is not part of the drip tip so you can easily swap out the Aspire one for one of your favourites and still get the benefit of further opening up or closing down the draw. Every drip tip I have tried from my own collection fits this tank perfectly.
The Triton is extremely solid and feels both weighty and rather durable. It is however quite a tall tank and to be quite honest I think it should have a larger capacity considering it’s size which is as big as the OBS T-VCT tank. The Triton only holds 3.5ml whereas the T-VCT holds 6ml.
Nevertheless it is a very well made tank and it was completely free of machine oil which is nice to see.
Ease of use
The Triton is extremely simple to use. To fill you remove the heat-sink incorporated top piece and if you twist the top cap either clockwise or anti clockwise (works both ways) it opens up the fill holes.
To guide you the tank does have engraved markings one showing a stylised droplet and the other showing a person vaping. You simply line up the arrow with the droplet to fill and then line it up with the person vaping when you’ve finished. Then you replace the top cap.
I realise I have made that sound complicated but it really is simpler in practice than it is to describe in text.
Replacing coils is also very easy you turn the tank upside down and unscrew the base. Then you can fit the new coil which is a simple case of screwing it in before replacing the base. Like all Sub Ohm tanks you do need to prime your coils but I have found with the Triton that the coil seems to saturate very fast so you should be good to go within roughly five to ten minutes.
How Does The Aspire Triton Vape?
The Triton is actually a pretty decent vape. I think it suffers a little in terms of flavour with fruit e-liquid because the ones I have tried don’t seem quite as crisp as they do in other tanks like the Freemax Starre, the Vision MK and the Sense Herakles. That is not to say that the Triton doesn’t have good flavour it’s just in my opinion it is not quite at the same level as some of the other tanks.
The Triton was a very good vape with both dessert and tobacco e-liquids. Epic Juice’s Yosi which is a RY4 type of tobacco tasted excellent, as did Suicide Bunny’s Claim Your Throne.
When using the 0.4 Ohm coil if you ramp up the wattage to 40W you get a lot of vapour being produced. The best result for me was the airflow fully opened up and the drip tip vent closed down otherwise it became a little too airy. The Triton specifications say that the 0.4 Ohm should be used at wattages between 25-30W but to quite honest 30W didn’t seem to be doing the job for me.
Do take care when increasing the wattage yourself because I don’t want to be held accountable for you burning out your coils!
All in all the Triton is a good vape.
Is It Worth it?
The Triton is not exactly a cheap tank and it’s not surprising since Aspire are known for high quality products so you could argue that you are also paying for the name. However in consideration I wouldn’t personally buy it and if you’ll bear with me I’ll explain why. The fact that the tank glass and stainless frame are machined as one piece which cannot be completely disassembled is something of a deal breaker. I really am a keen re-builder and the fact that I cannot thoroughly clean each part of this tank really grates with me.
Having said that I can understand that to some people especially new vapers, a rebuildable tank that can be fully stripped down can be daunting, confusing and often it can be tricky to remember which part goes where. So from that perspective I can understand why Aspire have made the design decision to make the Triton feature less parts so it is easily accessible and relatively trouble free for everybody.
In regard to how well the tank performs and how simple it is to fill then on the whole Aspire have created another good product but just keep in mind with this one that if you should ever smash the tank glass you’ll have to replace the entire tank.
I don’t actually think the price is particularly great since the Triton doesn’t even include a RBA deck unlike Kanger’s Subtank Mini. Aspire do have a rebuildable coil kit available but considering it is not included with the tank it’s just a additional expense for people who want to save money by not constantly buying replaceable coils.
While there are some really good aspects to this tank such as the leak free refilling, the good flavour and vapour production there are just some things about this product that really annoy me. Namely the lack of a RBA deck and the fact that the entire tank can’t be broken down.
It is by no means a bad tank, in fact it’s a very good but slightly pricey tank and if it was me I would have to say that there are other Sub Ohm tanks already on the market that are far better than this one and most of those cost considerably less.
By all means if you want a tank that is from a trusted manufacturer like Aspire that is very convenient to use then the Triton will certainly appeal to you.
