Revolution or evolution?
The 510 pin on the underside of the atomizer is lengthy sufficient that you possibly can apply it to a hybrid mod. The inscriptions on the physique are finely engraved. The bottom is 24 mm in diameter, which is now a regular measurement.
The primary Innokin Ares was moderately profitable. The Ares 2 appears to be like very comparable however has been improved by just a few small particulars, like the highest cap.
Positioned on the highest of the Ares 2, the cap slides to allow you to fill the 4ml tank. There’s a silicone seal for additional airtightness. You too can take away the highest cap for deep cleansing. Such a cap isn’t all the time very dependable and tends to loosen over time, which might trigger it to open whenever you least anticipate it. Innokin has used a proprietary drip tip to repair that. Really, it’s a 510 drip tip, and its (elongated) base blocks the highest cap. There’s no method the atomizer can open by itself. It’s properly designed and sensible.
You possibly can use a basic drip tip, however if you wish to assure that the highest cap stays shut it’s important to use the drip tip supplied.
The atomization chamber is curved to essentially focus flavour, and it’s broad and excessive sufficient that it gained’t make vapour that’s too sizzling.
They’ve hardly touched the design of the Ares 2, however when the unique design was so good, why would they? There’s no level in making drastic adjustments to an atomizer that works completely properly.
Straightforward to assemble
The mounting plate is simple to entry. It’s barely totally different from the unique mannequin. Within the centre, beneath the place you place the coil, there’s a cap with a central slit and notched edges.

The field comprises the instruments you’ll must make your personal coils, one coil and a few wick – a lot to get began instantly with the Ares 2. Sadly, it doesn’t include something you should utilize to show this cover. A small software with the identical notched form on its finish would have made the entire course of a lot simpler.
A 3mm coil suits simply on the mounting plate. There’s sufficient room on both facet of the posts to permit pretty straightforward meeting. The plate is simple to make use of for anybody new to rebuildables. The screws are situated on both facet of the posts and maintain the coil in place completely. However you do need to watch out with complicated assemblies, in case the tabs get bent as you screw them in. There’s nothing to carry the wire whilst you tighten it.
You go the wick via the 2 oval holes to information it right down to the underside of the tank. It is a change from the unique mannequin the place these components had been open. Becoming the wick is simple – you don’t need to be a technical whiz to wick the Ares 2. Simply minimize the wick shorter or longer relying in your preferences, however don’t depart it too lengthy or it’d get squashed up on the backside of the tank. The wicking properties are even higher!
The air move adjustment ring provides actual precision when it comes to openness. You need to use the slot totally open and modify utilizing the 5 totally different sized holes, or select the one opening with only one gap. It is extremely exact and provides an enormous selection in terms of air restriction. Every flip of the airflow ring makes a small click on, which holds your setting in place completely. Which means the ring isn’t going wherever even whenever you’re out and about.
The Ares 2 delivers a really satisfying vaping expertise. It delivers nice flavours and the quantity of vapour you anticipate for the meeting you utilize. There are such a lot of airflow settings – and that provides you an enormous restriction vary, from very tight to a lot airier. And that’s earlier than we even get to direct inhalation. Every puff delivers the total, concentrated flavour you’d anticipate from an actual MTL. In itself, this atomizer isn’t going to revolutionize vaping. It’s extra concerning the fine-tuning of an already profitable mannequin. The Ares 2 is a good MTL atomizer that’s straightforward to reside with and simple to make use of.
