COV Phoenix Vape Tank Introduction
The Council of Vapor Phoenix is an exciting new ceramic coil sub ohm tank, that has a 2ml capacity and large top airflow control for big vapor production as well as a top filling system for refilling.
The included ceramic coil has the benefit of having much longer lifespan than traditional cotton wicked coils, and it can also be cleaned as well.
A ceramic coil can potentially last many weeks, when a traditional cotton wicked coil may reach the end of its lifespan after barely a week, which makes a tank using ceramic coil heads very cost effective in the long run!
Ceramic coil technology is an exciting new development within the market at present, with some great tanks featuring ceramic coils already available.

Build quality and Airflow
The Council of Vapor Phoenix features a stainless steel construction alongside a glass tank section, and it is quite small as well.
Out of the box you have red silicone sleeves installed which help to protect against heat, these can be removed if they aren’t to your tastes, however just bear in mind your tank will get extremely hot if you intend on using it at over 50w.
The tank itself is 22mm so sits flush on most vape mods, and looks good with smaller sized units due to its small stature.
You have a stainless steel wide bore drip tip installed, however this can be removed and replaced with either the black or white delrin drip tips included in the box.
These feature a honeycomb style mesh spit back protector built in, to protect you from hot juice being spat back up the drip tip and subsequently into your mouth.
Airflow is adjusted from the top, via an easy to use airflow control system, and much like most other sub ohm tanks you have huge airflow on offer.
Capacity is a small 2ml, and the tank is refilled via top filling. You twist off the top cap, fill to the side of the chimney, replace the top cap and you are ready to go.
You can also give the coil a clean too, using the included wire brush, just pop it down the chimney and give it a little scrub out!
A new thing for me in terms of tanks I have reviewed is that the Phoenix coils are not replaceable.
Apparently they are coming up with a solution for this but that would also mean that 3/4 of the tank would need to be replaced as the coil, base and chimney are one piece. Be interesting to see the price point on this.
How Does The Council Of Vapor Phoenix Tank Perform?
The Council of Vapor Phoenix features a ceramic coil, with a resistance of 0.5ohm.
Council of Vapor say this can be used at up to 120w, meaning that those that like a hot vape and big clouds should get on really well with this tank. You don’t just need to use this at very high wattage though, you can use it at lower wattage’s as well.
I really liked the performance of the ceramic coil tank.
It performed really well for me in the 70-75w region, the vape is warm without being too hot, and the clouds this tank kicked out were huge with the airflow at its maximum setting!
Both the flavor and cloud performance are really impressive from this tank. It wicks juice very well too, although it is very thirsty and the 2ml capacity does not last long at all.
There is a lot of heat generated by this tank, and wattage over 80w seems to generate a little too much heat. The tank itself gets really hot and the vape is also uncomfortably hot, I didn’t enjoy it at very high wattage even though Council of Vapor say the coil can handle up to 120w.
What I Liked
Flavor is clean and crisp, and cloud production is very impressive. Plus the wide scope of different wattage’s you can use with this tank can really change the experience.
The top filling system is very user friendly and allows you to fill quickly and without getting covered in juice.
Top airflow control is excellent and works really well. The airflow control works fantastically well and is very easy to use.
The choice of different colored wide bore drip tips is a nice touch and allows you to vary the look of the tank.
What I Didn’t Like
I thought that the coil head being fixed into the tank is a bit of a strange decision.
As it is ceramic it is designed to last a long time however when the tank reaches the end of its lifespan I don’t think you have any other option other than to dispose of it.
That makes it one expensive disposable tank. Maybe if you get a few months out of the coil though it could work out OK price wise. If you have any issues with the coil itself though a new tank is needed.
The heat this tank puts out at high wattage is pretty crazy. The coils are rated for use up to 120w, however I couldn’t actually get beyond 95w to try this out, as the tank got far too hot for me, even with the silicone vape bands on the tank. The heat was transferred up the drip tip, even with the delrin drip tips, meaning I couldn’t even put the drip tip to my lips.
The 2ml capacity does not last you long at all. This tank drinks juice even with the wattage turned down, and you will have to constantly refill this all day long. It’s not ideal for out and about usage, especially when you consider how many times you will have to refill this.
Out of the box, the threading is so stiff I found it very difficult to disassemble the tank, and to use the top refilling system. As time went on this did ease up however.
Final COV Phoenix Tank Review Verdict
It’s a tank that performs exceptionally well on the flavor and cloud fronts, but it is let down by the measly 2ml capacity.
When you consider the tank is rated for use at up to 120w, the 2ml capacity goes in no time at all when you take it over 70w, meaning that you need to constantly refill the tank.
It also does get very hot at high wattage, so you do need to be careful. It does offer a great vape, it is solidly built and the top airflow system is great and makes the tank almost leak proof too.
It is quite expensive when you consider the coil is fixed into the tank and when it has reached the end of its lifespan, I can see no other way of changing it, which essentially means you have an expensive disposable tank.
Unless of course the coil lasts a few months. but this can change from user to user depending on how you vape.
So I guess it all depends on whether you want to take the chance on getting some good life out of the coil.
