Aspire Atlantis EVO Extended Kit Review

The first thing you might want to know about the new Aspire Atlantis EVO Sub-Ohm Tank is the price tag, and easy to swallow $19.95/$21.95 (Element Vape). Considering the performance of this new Atlantis EVO tank, and the included options, the EVO is a great value, and a splendid tank to boot. I’ve been vaping with it exclusively for 5 days running and although there are a couple of things that bother me about the Aspire Atlantis EVO, for the most part, Aspire has created a wonderful all-day-tank.

The Aspire Atlantis EVO Extended Kit is TPD-compliant in that, by default, the assembled tank holds just 2mL of eliquid. Sitting aside the assembled tank in the box is a 4mL glass tube and adapter to convert the Atlantis EVO into a more usable 4mL capacity sub-ohm. Without this additional, and much needed, glass tank I would have passed on buying it, and certainly passed on trying to review it. 2mL tanks do not interest me in the least, especially vaping a High VG juice at a sub-ohm resistance level.

Converting the Atlantis EVO – 2mL to 4mL

Most Vapers will want to replace the 2mL glass tube as soon possible. To do that, follow these simple instructions:

  1. Remove the rubber top cap cuff
  2. Unscrew the top cap and remove
  3. Grab the adapter piece in the box and screw it onto the top threads of the 0.4-ohm Clapton Kanthal sub-ohm coil that comes preinstalled.
  4. Pull off the 2mL glass tube. It is held in place by O-rings, so lift up and try not to grip it too tightly in fear of breaking the glass tube.
  5. Slide the 4mL glass tube over the base of the tank, slightly push down onto the O-ring.
  6. With the new glass tube in place, and the coil adapter that allows the top cap to be screwed into that coil/adapter, screw down the top cap.

Note*While most vapers will still apply a few drops of juice into the coil head, I have stopped that practice altogether. I fill the tank, take several deep inhales (without powering the tank) and then allow it saturate the coils/cotton for at least 5-10 minutes. My way eliminates the possibility of overfilling the coils and producing gurgling and spit-back. So far, in the 5 days I’ve used this tank, not a single incident of either has plagued my experience with the tank.

 Now that the Aspire Atlantis EVO sports the larger 4mL capacity glass, we can move on to my real world experience and go over some of the other specs you might be interested in finding out about.

The Aspire Atlantis EVO is 22mm in diameter, making a perfect fit for most box mods and tubed-shaped mods. For this review I used both my ProVape Procyon and eLeaf iPower. The juices used were The Plume Room’s Chai Tea Latte HighVG, and Vaporfi/Cosmic Fog Strawberry Shortcake. The suggested power settings for the Kanthal Clapton 0.4Ω coil is between 40-50W, while the Kanthal Clapton 0.5Ω is rated at 35-40W. As you can see, both mods are able to provide optimal vaping experiences.

The Atlantis EVO is also cross-compatible with original Aspire Atlantis coils. Some Vapers may have some other Atlantis coil heads hanging around, but be careful; coil heads that require more than 50w to vape optimally may cause excessive heat that the EVO may not be able to handle well.

Both new coils are Direct Lung capable. However, the airflow can be easily adjusted to provide MTL (mouth-to-lung) Vapers a pleasant vape. In addition, it isn’t wise to exceed the upper wattage levels of the two coil heads, Aspire’s low and high wattage points are spot on. I found the sweet spot for both to be 34W-35W.

Naturally the Atlantis EVO is a top-fill tank. Remove the top cap and pour in the ejuice, it’s that simple. The only annoying part is the rubber top cap cuff, something easily removed and tossed in the drawer. It is provided to assist head dissipation, but if you keep the wattage under 40W you won’t have much need for it.

As far as Airflow goes, the air enters the tank via 4x air slots at the base of the tank. These slots provide ample air channels that generate some massive clouds (with HighVG juice) and a flavor profile that is hard to beat.

I do have some contention over one marketing component from Aspire and that’s the claim that the Atlantis EVO uses ejuice in a more efficient manner, insinuating that the ejuice in the tank won’t be consumed quickly. That is absolutely untrue. As good as the Atlantis EVO is, it is a juice thief in the truest sense of the word. Which is surprising when you consider the lower wattage requirements of these two coils.

Aspire claims that the Atlantis EVO’s double-wicking works efficiently due to the larger cotton exposure holes (eliquid ports) combined with placing these ports lower in the coil heads, and that part is true. This optimized design does indeed allow high VG e-Liquid to reach the coil system faster. This is also absolutely true, and with a properly saturated coil the user can take the most aggressive lung hit possible and not hit a dry burn. It is this feature that made me fall in love with the Atlantis EVO.

That said, prepare to vape through as much ejuice as you would with higher-end tanks like the Freemax Starre PURE, Herakles Honor, Crown 2, and TFV8, with ultra-low resistances. As long as the user knows this going in, then by all means the vape experience is worth it. Lastly, because ejuice is vaped so quickly I would never consider suggest using the 2mL glass tube. You would be refilling the tank every 25 minutes instead of every hour as I do now.

 

Aspire Atlantis EVO as an All-Day-Tank

If someone vapes heavily, and by that I mean ‘someone’ is pulling on a drip tip more often than not, a tank that delivers excellent flavor and vapor should not be so large as to cause non-vapers to take notice, or heavy enough to be annoying after several hours of vaping at work, play, or anywhere outside. An all-day tank should feel light, unobtrusive, and easy to refill. It should also concentrate its abilities toward flavor production, without negating vapor of course. The Atlantis EVO fits these requirements well.

Since both coils deliver optimum flavor and vapor below 50-watts, there isn’t much to concern yourself with heat dissipation. The worst of it happens while vaping the 0.4Ω coil at 35W, aggressively. And then, the upper portion of the tank is only slightly warm through the rubber cuff. The drip tip remains at room temperature. Using older Atlantis coils might cause a warmer tank, especially if the wattage requirements are above 50W.

Atlantis EVO – The Bottom Line

Aspire says the new Atlantis EVO is their flagship tank. I guess I can see why. Aspire’s other tanks include the Cleito, Triton and Triton Mini, the K2 and the Nautilus X, and while performance for these tanks are hit and miss, the Atlantis EVO is currently the best all-around sub-ohm tank from Aspire. I look at it as Aspire’s answer to the Kanger Pangu, only the EVO delivers flavor where the Pangu does not.

Flavor and vapor production of the Aspire Atlantis EVO is up there with Kanger’s Protank 4 Evolved, physically, the EVO is closer to the Cleito. I worry about the durability of the Atlantis EVO, as I did with the Cleito. (now retired from active service) I’ve not used it long enough to know whether the O-ring that holds the glass tube in place at the bottom and the top O-ring that creates a seal along with the top cap threading will keep the tank leak-free 3 or 4 months out.  But, all things considered, for $19.95 or $21.95 for the Extended Version Kit, it’s a great tank.

Grade: B+

The Aspire Atlantis EVO is first and foremost a ‘flavor’ tank, but it’s no slouch when it comes to vapor production. The proprietary coil heads are the only ones I would use despite the compatibility of other Atlantis coils. For all day vaping the Extended Kit with the 4mL glass tube is a must, but if you live in the UK you may be stuck with the silly TPD-compliant 2mL limit. The price, $19.95/$21.95 at Element Vape, gives this tank real value. For flavor chasers the Atlantis EVO is terrific choice.
