The Aspire Revvo sub-ohm vape tank uses a new, innovative atomizer head, the ARC (Aspire Radial Coil). Two sub-ohm coils, 0.10 and 0.16ohm, come in the kit for use with the tank. What sets the Aspire Radial Coil apart is its shape.
The Aspire Radial Coil has a flattened-out form. The Aspire coil features cotton wicks underneath and the connectors on the top side. Instead of the usual chimney-shaped vape coils, the Aspire Radial Coil looks like a little disc.
The Aspire Revvo vape tank has two kit versions a standard 3.6ml and a TPD compliant 2ml. There are three top air slots above the glass section that are also adjustable. They each measure 10.5mm by 2.5mm. They are the same size, in all the Aspire kits.

In the Aspire Revvo Tank Box
There are two versions of the Aspire Revvo tank for the US and TPD countries, with the only difference being the e-liquid capacity being 2ml for the TPD version.
Here’s what comes in the Aspire Revvo sub-ohm tank kit:
- One Aspire Revvo
- One Aspire Radial Coil 0.10ohm
- One Aspire Radical Coil 0.16ohm
- One silicone cap
- One spare glass section
- Ten spare o-rings
- One warning card
- One warranty card
- One user manual
An Up-Close Look at the Tank
The measurements of the Aspire Revvo tank are 45mm (1.8 inches) tall and 24mm (0.9 inches) wide, so the Revvo should have no problem fitting on most mods. Like with most other tanks that work with sub-ohm box mods, its construction is stainless steel and glass.
The airflow ring is textured and beveled to give a better grip when you unscrew it, while the lower section is smooth to the touch when attaching it to a mod. There is one center ring that separates the drip tip from the tank section.
There are three adjustable air slots on either side of the Aspire tank, and there is a sloped drip tip on the top cap, similar to many other Aspire tanks. The airflow ring is pretty self-explanatory, turn it to the desired airflow preference. The air holes are the same, so anything adjusted on one slot will be reflected on the second and third one.
One of the first things that are noticeably different about the Aspire Revvo vape tank as opposed to other vape liquid tanks is the fill port, which is right down the center of the drip tip. The fill tube is spring-loaded, and so to fill the tank, insert a bottlenose, press down on the tube, and then squeeze the bottle to fill the tank.
The tube goes down and lets out the vape juice right into the tank. There is a tight seal that forms when the tube presses down around the dripper so there should not be any liquid leaking, but be sure to use a needle-nose or unicorn bottle for the best results. There is a 510 pin on the bottom of the tank, but since it does not protrude and sits flush with the pin, it is probably not a good idea to use it with a hybrid mech mod.
Inside the Aspire Revvo Tank
Remove the top cap to see the insides of the vape tank, which are also entirely different. Because of the new coil design, the centerpiece of the tank is the fill tube that was mentioned before. There is a mounting screw that needs to be taken off to install (there is a sub-ohm Aspire Radial Coil pre-installed) or replace a coil.
That mounting screw also helps prevent spit back and keeps the chimney dry of vape liquid. Removing the ARC is not hard. It pops out with a push from a fingernail and is overall easy to replace since an o-ring also keeps it in place. The coil sits above the e-juice reservoir so it can be changed even with liquid in the tank.
The Aspire Revvo Coil
In this respect, the Revvo’s interior design resembles an RDTA for having a bottom tank section that sits below the atomizer heads. With this kind of design, it may make one wonder how the cotton wicks get juiced.
One thing to remember about the Aspire Radial Coil and the Aspire Revvo tank is that because it is a flat disc, it will not saturate so quickly. There is a lot of coil surface area; the cotton wicks also take up a lot of space.
Even though most vapers usually tilt their tanks and mods toward their mouths whenever they take a vape, tip the Revvo tank and the mod a little more to make sure the wicks get juiced. The flat shape does not lend itself well to natural wicking, but it is not a huge discouragement.
Some vapers might even want to turn the entire tank and mod upside down to get full saturation. With the press-pump, fill port that is possible without the tank leaking any liquid nicotine, but not necessary. The nicotine e-juice will find its way to the wicks with a swirl of the device or a slight tilt.
The kit comes with 0.10 and 0.16ohms Aspire Radial Coils. The wire is Kanthal AF, and they vape between 50-100W, but they vape best between 80-85W.
Filling the Aspire Revvo through the spring-loaded fill tube provided a nice change of pace. Give the device a little shake as well, to get the bottom-cotton wicks juiced up. Speaking of the cotton wicks, as they face down, there isn’t anything that would stop you from taking it out.
Once the flavor changes and the fabric is all worn-out, it would be possible just to take out the cotton and replace it with new threads. This hack means the Aspire Radial Coil heads could be used to vape forever. But still, the threads and o-rings (there are ten o-rings the pack) would get degraded and eventually, the entire Aspire Radial Coil will need to be replaced.
Vaping at 70W – the Aspire Radial Coils vape best between 80-85W, with a maximum rating of 100W with most sub-ohm mods – gave off the best clouds and flavor profiles, even with a high-PG, nicotine salts e-liquid in the vape. The airflow, with three slots, was incredibly airy and the draw was easy.
There was a lot more room inside because of the flat atomizer head, so there was more air coming in and having more room to move around, it pushed out the clouds. The metal dome inside the top cap covers the push-to-fill chimney spout perfectly, so the draw is tight and goes directly out the drip tip.
The Aspire Revvo vs. the Mig Vapor WTF vs. the Horizontech Falcon Artisan Edition
The Mig Vapor WTF Tank
The WTF tank is a sub-ohm tank that has a stainless steel and Pyrex glass construction. It stands 147mm tall (5.7 inches) and has a diameter of 20mm (0.78 inches). The atomizer is 510-threaded and can hold about 3.5ml of e-juice.
The WTF kit features two Kanthal wire atomizer heads with cotton wicks. They are rated for 0.5ohms and 0.2ohms, respectively. The tank has a top-fill system with full fill ports for easy filling.
The Horizontech Falcon Tank
The Horizontech Falcon sub-ohm tank has a 5ml e-juice capacity, with a 7ml e-juice glass extender in the kit. The atomizer has a 24mm diameter (0.94 inches) and features stainless-steel construction embossed with a resin finish, not to mention the Pyrex glass section.
There are three adjustable bottom airflow slots and a gold-plated 510 connection on the bottom. The Falcon comes with two, mesh-style coils rated at either 0.16ohms and 0.15ohms.

The Last Word on the Aspire Revvo
All in all, the Aspire Revvo was a solid performer. The fill tube feature was a significant improvement on typical top-fill tanks, and the airflow on the Revvo is one of the best of any new tank.
The Aspire Radial Coil looks unlike any other factory coil in any and all kits out right now. It also vapes better than a lot of other kits’ stock coil options. It can be installed and removed easily, including without having to remove the e-juice. The Revvo is a sub-ohm, but its design resembles an RDTA with its self-saturating wicks that have no problem getting juiced.
The Aspire Radial Coil design also allows for the cotton to be taken out and replaced. The larger glass size is perfect to pair with the long-lasting coils as well. All in all, Aspire is a quality tank-builder, and their commitment to innovation can be seen in a tank like the Revvo and a coil like the ARC.
