The Innokin Ares 2 RTA is a specially designed RTA (Rebuildable Tank Atomiser) that will support mouth to lung vaping. Still designed for advanced vapers, it builds on the success of the original and arrives with a number of improvements. Improvements include a new airflow structure, newly designed chimney for improved flavour, and of course a classic 2ml e-liquid capacity. Featuring a standard 510 pin you can pair the Ares 2 with a range of vape devices.
To support the MTL vaping style of the Ares 2 it utilises a small build deck. Featuring a ‘drop deck’ layout, a coil can be placed, secured and then trimmed while still leaving plenty of room for your cotton wick. This results in a faster set-up and a more precise coil placement. Compatible with single coils, it is recommended that you choose a smaller rebuildable coil due to both the size of the deck and the MTL properties of the RTA itself.
With a precise atomiser such as this, airflow control is very important. You can configure it in two ways - for a more bespoke experience. Located on the deck underneath where your coil sits is a Cross Air Flow Control which can be opened and shut impacting both flavour and vapour production. For a more traditional vape, the bottom adjustable airflow can be used, this bottom air has been configured for a tighter draw in general.
The unique selling point of an RTA like this is its e-liquid capacity. Unlike a standard RDA, the Ares 2 can be filled with up to 2ml of e-liquid, making it better for travelling with. Refilling is quick and clean thanks to the sliding top-fill mechanism, while a series of seals featuring throughout the tank stop leaking. Essentially, you'll experience the flavour production of a rebuildable atomiser with the reliability of a classic vape tank.
Important information about Rebuildable Tank Atomisers:
Rebuildable atomisers are recommended only for experienced vapers. You should have the knowledge and access to the equipment that is required to set up this atomiser properly.
Before building coils or using an RTA you should have a thorough knowledge of battery safety, Ohm's Law and vaping in general.
Before fitting a coil onto your rebuildable atomiser ensure it is in a safe condition and registering the correct Ohmage, this testing and checking can be achieved by using a dedicated Ohmmeter. Coils should not be tested on vape devices.
If you're looking to experience a smoother throat hit and discreet vapour production, you can pair the Ares 2 with a 50/50 nic salt e-liquid. To support this type of e-liquid we recommend you use a rebuildable coil that's 1.0 Ohm or higher and to thin out your cotton wick.

Love this tank, so easy to build. Slide top fill so no messing. Been using it for 2 weeks now and no leaking issues. Very generous extras and instructions are easy to follow especially for beginners.

Have been using this constantly since I got it and it hasn't missed a beat. Flavour is fantastic, it's easy to fill and recoil, overall great tank.

Disclaimer: This is my first ever RTA tank. I've been using it for two months now I believe.
I'm enjoying the variety of features it comes with. First of all there's the adjustable airflow offering an option between all holes/just a few holes, single hole biggest to smallest too. It has a nice sturdy gear mechanism so you can hear an audible click when adjusting it.
Easy to fill but bear in mind glass bottles' pipettes won't fit properly since it has some seal on the top. It's really easy to completely disassemble, clean and reassemble. Also if you have juice left in the tank you can still replace your coil/cotton without having to vape through it all/have it flood everywhere, you just turn it upside down and remove the bottom part of the tank to make your adjustments, the juice stays safely in the tank.
It has an inner airflow adjusting mechanism as well, which is incredibly awesome. You can twist it to adjust your airflow up until there's just a tiny hole left to come.
The tank itself is solid just like any other product Innokin release. It looks quite nice in SS black, especially coupled with my full black Innokin Proton mod (I am not sponsored by Innokin btw, just a fan of their products).
The package for it comes with plenty of additional tools including two simple tools for building your coils, a spare glass for the tank (I believe it's not glass the second one, smoke something, not sure of the material but it endures all the tank cracking juices including high amounts of menthol and lemons), enough cotton and wire to make a few coils and enjoy the vaping experience (the wire provided is a kanthal one, I've grown to enjoy ni80 personally). It also comes with two drip tips, one is a longer tight bore SS one which tends to heat up faster, the other is a delrin drip tip with a child lock elongated bottom (you need to remove it to refill your tank). Not too much of an issue since you can still just hold it in your fingers. Spare o-rings obviously. The tank itself holds about 1.5-2ml of juice, haven't bothered to determine the total amount.
Overall it's a very nice tank with plenty of protection against spills and really nice design. The taste is great in my opinion, but I'm a person who's gone from DTL with Falcon King to Innokin Zlide to this so I'm not the most experienced at MTL nor can I give the most accurate review. But for me personally this is fantastic.

I'm going to really go out on a limb here and say the flavour with this tank is better than the Kayfun Prime. It is easier to build on and comes with lots of extras in the box, sparers, etc.
I only wish the glass was glass and not plastic. It does not look as good as the Prime, but at this price point there can be no complaints really.
The flavour with 50/50 juices is incredible and the air adjustments offer a lot of variety.
Vapeclub through a pandemic provide next day delivery almost 100%. Phenomenal service.
If you are looking for a first RTA, look no further.

Great tank so far, I'm still on my first build with one of the coils included and firebolt cotton for wicking. No spit back, gurgling, flooding or leaking. Flavour is very good and building on the deck is very easy. Great for the price and very fast delivery.
