Welcome to another hardware review by Foxy.
Today we will be looking at and comparing the Atlantis V2 and V2 Mega. The reason I am going to make this a combined review is simply because the differences between these tanks is minimal and couldn’t possibly warrant a separate review.
Aspire as we all know are one of the market leading big boys when it comes to tanks, They started getting a name for themselves with the Nautilus and Nautilus Mini tanks which have been on the market for approximately one year.
It would seem that rather than flooding the market with the same tank for a long period of time Aspire decided to go back to the drawing board and look at what us vapers really want. The outcome of these “Studies” were pretty accurate. If you have a think back over the past maybe 6 months you will see that the market went from using standard tanks to instantly becoming more towards drippers. Aspire seen this too and decided to find the middle ground.
It was at this point when the Atlantis tanks were formed. The version 1 Atlantis tank at the time was fantastic, it supported a 0.5Ohm BVC coil which did in its own right put out a reasonable cloud for a tank.
The MK1 was very successful so of course Aspire went back to the drawing board to design something that wouldn’t alienate tank users or those like myself who were really into dripping. The outcome was a huge game changer!
The Aspire Atlantis V2 was born! The Atlantis V2 was a perfect middle ground for the cloud chasers out there, the flavour was phenomenal and the cloud produced was nearly identical to that of a dripper. My only issue with the Atlantis V2 was that it drank the juice like a chav drinks cider!
This meant that as a tank user, I still needed to carry a bottle of juice with me to top up in some cases seven times in one 24 hour period. It wasn’t long before Aspire realised that once again they needed to invest more time and money into their tanks to be ahead of the game and thus the Aspire Atlantis V2 MEGA was born. The Atlantis Mega was basically the same design as the V2 with a larger tank and a few more air flow options at the base.
I found that the Mega gave slightly more cloud than the V2 did thanks to the positioning of the airflow controls at the base. On both the V2 and V2 Mega we have a huge wide bore drip tip which is exclusive to the Atlantis tanks and cannot accommodate a 510 drip tip. Around the base of this drip tip is where the magic happens….
There are four small airflow options, my preference are always open wide as this tends to cool the vapour down and provides me with much more flavour as it cools. Both tanks take the same coils too which are newly designed for the tank with maximum wattage in mind. The coil itself has 4 large airflow holes and 4 huge juice holes to allow plenty of juice into the cotton rather than struggling and giving the user a dry hit. There are a few combinations of coils on the market for the Atlantis V2 tanks with 0.3Ω and 0.5Ω being the most popular.
There are now Ni-200 coils and Clapton builds available for the tanks, but I haven’t nor do I have any intention of trying. At the base of the Atlantis V2 there are 2 airflow options and on the MK1 we only had one with different preset holes behind the ring to adjust. The V2 Mega has 4 huge holes with a total of 5 different “airy draw” options.
I found while using the V2 Mega that my 0.3Ω coils would only last me maybe 2 or 3 days before needing changed, maybe I got a bad batch or maybe there is just too much air going to the coil itself.
- Great flavour
- Fantastic build quality
- Huge clouds
- Low cost
- Parts readily available*
- Guzzles juice
- Dedicated driptip
Pros V2 Mega:
- Huge capacity
- Great Cloud
- Great Flavour
- Plenty of airflow options
- Solid construction
Cons V2 Mega:
- Dedicated drip tip
- Very wide for 22mm mod
- Top heavy
So would I buy this device if I lost my own one? Yes I certainly would…. I have always been a huge fan of the Atlantis range and they only seem to get better with each new product.
