The New Aspire Revvo Tank: Complete Guide
If you’ve been vaping for a while, you’ve probably owned your share of products that didn’t really add much to the vaping hobby. A tank with slightly larger wick holes – or a mod with a slightly higher wattage range – than last year’s model isn’t a particularly exciting development. What is exciting is something that truly defies conventions – something that pushes the entire industry forward. More than any other vaping product that we’ve seen in a long time, the new Aspire Revvo tank fits that definition. Aspire’s new Aspire Radial Coil isn’t technically a coil at all; it’s a circular grate like the one you’d find on an electric stove top. The ARC coil isn’t just an improvement to the overall vaping experience; it eliminates some of the problems that have plagued sub-ohm tank users for years.
Let’s learn more about how the Aspire Revvo tank and Radial Coil work. In this guide, you’ll find out what makes the Aspire Radial Coil different from any other vaping coil on the market. By the time you’re done reading, you’ll know whether the Aspire Revvo tank – or perhaps the full Aspire SkyStar kit – is the right choice for you.
What Is the Aspire Revvo Tank?
If you’re a long-term vaper, you’ll probably think that the Aspire Revvo tank doesn’t look too impressive from the outside. The narrow tube in the center almost makes the Revvo look like one of the cartomizer tanks that were once popular among advanced e-cigarette users. When you look inside the Revvo, though, you realize that the center tube isn’t actually a tube at all; it’s just the post that connects to the Aspire Radial Coil. The Aspire Revvo has no chimney, so it has none of the airflow issues that make most e-cigarette tanks inferior to rebuildable atomizers – and that’s just one of the differences that separate the Revvo from other vaping tanks.
The Aspire Radial Coil is the primary feature that makes the Revvo different from any other e-cigarette tank – and the best way that we can describe the difference is by showing it to you.
As you can see from the picture, the Aspire Radial Coil looks something like a flattened notch coil – but while notch coils are usually made from stainless steel, the ARC coil is made from kanthal. If your mod supports a resistance of 0.1 or 0.16 ohms and can fire within a range of 50-100 watts, it’ll support the ARC coil. On the underside of the coil is a cotton wick. If you begin to lose vapor production because the wick is drying out, you can tilt your device for a few seconds to re-saturate the wick.
Using the Aspire Revvo Tank
The Aspire Revvo is one of the easiest sub-ohm tanks on the market to fill. Filling is easiest, though, if you have a plastic bottle with a nozzle tip. Twist off the drip tip to expose the spring-loaded filling hole in the center of the tank. Using the tip of your bottle, push the middle of the inside of the airflow ring to open the filling hole. Fill the tank and remove the bottle. The filling hole closes automatically to prevent leaks. Replace the drip tip. You may want to leave the tank on its side for several minutes to saturate the cotton.
As you’ll discover when reading the next section of this article, the design of the Aspire ARC coil is excellent for longevity. When it’s time to change the coil, though, you’ll find that doing so is both very easy and less messy than the experience you have when swapping most sub-ohm tank coils. You can even change the coil without dumping the e-liquid in the tank. To do so, unscrew the airflow control and drip tip to expose the retainer thumbscrew. Twist the retainer to remove it, and then pull the radial coil straight up to remove it from the Revvo tank. Drop in a new coil. Make sure that you’ve pushed it all the way in. Replace the retainer and airflow control, place the tank on its side for several minutes to saturate the cotton and you’re ready to go.
What Are the Benefits of the Aspire Radial Coil?
Aspire’s goal when creating the Revvo tank was to design a coil with a large surface area and no hot spots. The entire surface of the coil heats simultaneously, which means that the coil produces large vapor clouds with very rich flavor. In comparison, the vertical coils that most sub-ohm tanks use must fight gravity to stay wet. The top of a vertical coil dries out faster – and thus gets hotter – than the bottom of the coil. The Aspire Radial Coil doesn’t have that problem and is therefore less susceptible to burning the wick. As long as you remember to tilt the tank periodically to keep the wick wet – which really isn’t any more difficult than dripping – you can expect the ARC coil to last longer than most sub-ohm tank coils.
The design of the Aspire Radial Coil isn’t just great for flavor and vapor production; it also means that the Aspire Revvo tank doesn’t require a chimney. In a traditional sub-ohm tank, the coil is submerged in e-liquid. Vapor travels out through a chimney. The traditional chimney design is reliable and mostly leak free, but having a submerged coil means that you aren’t getting nearly as much airflow as you would get with a rebuildable atomizer. If you want to blow big clouds, you need plenty of airflow. That’s why sub-ohm tanks have always lagged behind RBAs in vapor production. Since the coil in the Aspire Revvo is above the e-liquid rather than submerged in it, there’s no need for a chimney. The airflow is the same as what you’d get with an RBA, which means that you can finally enjoy the vapor production of an RBA and the convenience of a tank simultaneously.
Witness the Future of Vaping Now
The Aspire Revvo tank is proof that as mature as the vaping industry sometimes appears, there is still plenty of room for revolutionary products that completely change the game. Although we don’t know what the next revolutionary product after the Revvo will look like, we believe that the Revvo is a tank that will influence the design of vaping devices for the next several years. In 2018, every major manufacturer of vaping products will most likely release a clone of the Revvo – but Aspire was there first. If you want to know what the future of vaping looks like, the Aspire Revvo is a tank that you need to own.
