I've always been satisfied with the quality of Aspire products and have acquired several Nautilus Mini and Atlantis tanks over the years. I mostly sub-ohm these days, but still like to use the Nautilus Minis for high-nicotine, MTL vaping now and again. So when I started reading about the Triton Mini, it seemed like a logical evolution of the Nautilus, so I bought one.
No question this tank is built to the same high standards of Aspire's other products. And in many ways, its functionality surpasses the Nautilus Mini. For me, the fact that it is a top-fill tank makes it worth the price of admission. The fill/vape setting is useful and works as advertised. That I can use all the Nautilus Mini coils I have stockpiled is a big bonus for me, as well.
So overall, I would say this tank is "better" than the Nautilus Mini, except for one thing: I hated the draw on this thing.
I bought this tank only for MTL vaping and was very disappointed with it. On its most restrictive air setting, it's still too airy and I can't get a satisfying draw. At its wide-open setting, it's still too restrictive to provide a satisfactory lung hit, so it's useless to me for that as an alternative.
I was ready to clean it and put it back in the box until a thought occurred to me. It's not obvious, but the Triton Mini has a very short, detachable mouthpiece. I took it off and replaced it with a mouthpiece from one of my Nautilus Minis.
It fit perfectly and provided just enough extra restriction of the airflow to make it usable for me. I still prefer the MTL draw of the Nautilus Mini, but with the Nautilus tip and airflow dialed down to a pin dot, the Triton Mini's draw is acceptable.
This is really no knock on the Triton Mini because it's all my personal preference. Out of the box, it didn't work for me, but it might be everything you're looking for. And at WOV's price (at least for the silver version), you can expect great value for your hard-earned money.
