Aspire Triton Mini

The Aspire Triton Mini is a mini version of the recently released Aspire Triton 2, with the same features and looks found with the Triton 2 in a smaller package, however it’s designed to appeal to mouth to lung vapers and those that prefer more of a moderate vape. There are 1.2ohm kanthal and 1.8ohm Clapton coils available for the Triton Mini, as well as Ni200 coil heads for those that like temperature control vaping.

Those that really liked the Aspire Nautilus and Aspire Nautilus Mini may find that the Triton Mini appeals to them, alongside the aforementioned coil options you have a 2ml capacity, smaller form factor than the Aspire Triton 2, easy to use top filling system, adjustable airflow, three different colour options (Stainless Steel, Black, 24k Gold Plating) as well as the ability to fully strip the tank down to clean it.

I really enjoyed the Aspire Triton 2, so let’s have a look at how it’s little brother performs!

  • 60mm height (including drip tip)

What’s in the Box?

Inside the Triton Mini Kit you have the Aspire Triton Mini tank itself with a 1.8ohm Clapton Coil head installed, a spare 1.2ohm kanthal coil and a replacement glass tank section too, which will come in handy should you break the original.

Looks and Build Quality

The Aspire Triton Mini has a stainless steel construction, with a heat resistant glass tank section, and a spare tank section included in the box. It’s available in three different colour finishes, black, stainless steel or 24k gold plating, and apart from its smaller stature it’s almost nigh on identical in looks to the Aspire Triton 2. Width is slightly shorter at 20mm, and it’s short too with a 60mm height including the drip tip! The drip tip design is slightly different, with no heat fins present at the base, but you wouldn’t be able to tell much of a difference between this and the Triton 2!

The excellent top filling system that was present on the Triton 2 is found here. You twist the top section of the tank until it points to the drip symbol, then remove it to fill, once done you twist it to the vaping symbol. It’s very quick and mess as well as hassle free! Changing coils is pretty quick and simple too, you simply unscrew the glass tank section from the base to replace the coil. You can also strip the Triton Mini down to clean it fully, and it features 510 threading.

Overall, it’s a well built tank, small and discrete, and it looks the part too!

Airflow

Airflow on the Triton Mini is pretty much identical to the airflow found on the Triton 2, other than it being smaller to account for mouth to lung vaping. There is a cyclops airflow slot that is adjusted by rotating the airflow control ring, you can dial in a really tight vape if that is your preference, wide open you will achieve a loose mouth to lung draw with either of the stock coils included with the Aspire Triton Mini.

Performance

With the small size of this tank, you only get a 2ml capacity, handy for the upcoming ghastly TPD regulations but not so practical for everyday use. Even with moderate usage you will need to refill this at least once a day, thankfully the excellent top filling method makes it quick and easy to refill and vape away. It’s not a particularly thirsty tank, however it will get through juice quicker than the Aspire Nautilus and Nautilus Mini for example. The Triton Mini does wick extremely well, with even high VG juice not really troubling it.

You have a 1.8ohm BVC Clapton Coil head pre installed with the Aspire Triton Mini, and this offers a really tasty and flavourful vape. At the 17-19w mark it offers a very nice warm vape, more akin to my tastes, and with the airflow at its most open setting I get a really tasty loose mouth to lung draw. Under 17w and with the airflow a little tighter, the vape is a little cooler but it’s still really tasty. I actually thought this coil performed even better for flavour than the original BVC coil heads for the Aspire Nautilus Mini!

The spare coil included within the kit is the 1.2ohm kanthal coil, which I would recommend for those that prefer really tight mouth to lung draws. The vape is much cooler than the vape you get from the 1.8ohm Clapton coil, and I found that this coil performs better on flavour at 15w and under. Again, as per with the 1.8ohm Clapton coil, I was very impressed with just how good the flavour is from this coil head. Overall, I’ve got to say that the Aspire Triton Mini is a mouth to lung flavour machine!

Conclusion

The Aspire Triton Mini is a very good option for Mouth to Lung vapers that don’t want the hassle of messing around with rebuildable atomisers. The options for decent mouth to lung clearomisers are quite limited these days, with many tanks aimed at sub ohm cloud chasing, however the Aspire Triton Mini is a viable option offering a very nice and flavourful vape, that functions really well, offers great build quality and a very good top filling system. It’s good to see one of the major manufacturers still looking to cater to the mouth to lung market.

If you are looking for a tighter draw, and prefer chasing flavour over chasing clouds, the Aspire Triton Mini is one of the best mouth to lung clearomisers since the release of the Aspire Nautilus Mini. It offers excellent flavour, very good coil lifespan, and it’s solidly made and easy to use. If you are making the step up from a basic kit, this may be an option worth looking at, and seasoned mouth to lung vapers should get on really well with the fuss free and flavourful vape the Aspire Triton Mini offers!
