General Details
Top of the line rebuildable mouth to lung tank now comes in new colors.

Why Innokin?

Phil Busardo and Dimitris Agrafiotis selected Innokin to work due to their continued focus on the smoker, and safety.
Innokin has helped millions of people transition away from traditional combustible tobacco cigarettes which is exactly in line with our goal.
Innokin was the correct fit for us and was instrumental in bringing our ideas to reality.

The Ares RTA:
The Ares RTA is a collaboration between Phil Busardo, Dimitris Agrafiotis, and Innokin. The goal was to create an affordable mouth to lung rebuildable tank atomizer (RTA) that was easy to build, easy to work with, easy to fill and provided an outstanding vape for the mouth to lung (MTL) crowd. Delivers incredibly delicious clouds of flavors !
It will be available in both 5ml and 2ml TPD compliant versions.

It features a top side filling system, a drop-in coil sky build deck, a liquid barrier to help prevent leaking and seepage, and a user adjustable airflow with numerous settings.
The airflow has been designed with the MTL style of vaping in mind giving the user the ability to adjust the airflow from a tight cigarette style draw to a slightly more open draw. The air will then travel to the diffuser which will distribute the air over the coil. The air will travel to the top of the bell to the reduced chimney designed to flavor and throat hit for those who crave it. The entire system and rounded bell is designed to make filling a little easier and to reduce air turbulence for a smooth, quiet, satisfying vape.

The Ares RTA comes with everything required to get you started including a spare glass tank section, two mouthpieces, spare build screws, two coil building tools (Phil’s is much better than Dimitris’), loose wire, prebuilt coils, multi-colored o-rings, and natural organic Japanese cotton for wicking.
There is also a QR code on the box that will direct you to tutorial videos that will help you work with and build the tank.
We truly hope you enjoy the Ares RTA!

Ares RTA review

  1. Is this compatible with the cool fire iv (not plus)

    • Hey Gary,

      Yup, the Ares can be used on the CoolFire IV. Make sure you use a coil that’s suitable for 40w or less of power, and only use kanthal or stainless steel wire. Hope this helps!

  2. Is this compatible with the Endura T20S?

    • Hi Alex,

      They can be used together, yes, but you would need to make an optimal coil build for the fixed 18 watt output that the T20-S delivers. Hope this helps :)

  3. Is 55 watts available?
    I use 55 watts.

    • Hi Kubi,

      The Ares is an RTA, which allows you to build your own coil. However, I would advise sticking to a lower power level than 55 watts for most Ares builds. Thanks!

  4. Hello, I heard about a special airflow insert that goes in to the deck of the Ares. Is that true? If so, where can I buy one? Do the new Ares tanks come with them? Thank you for the info.

  5. I own a SS Ares Tank and I wonder why every time it is losing e-liquid from the top filling port when it is closed. Thank you very much for your attention.

  6. Hands down the best MTL tank ive ever owned. Innokin thanks for listening to end users. The flavor and ease of building make this the perfect tank. The experience is as good if not better than tanks that cost three or for times as much. A very satisfying vape.

    • Hi John,

      Thanks so much, we really appreciate the kind words and feedback. We hope we can continue to impress for many, many tanks and products to come. Cheers and happy vaping!

  7. For years I’ve been trying to find a tank that emulated the draw and flavor production that could equal, or better my Kayfun Lites performance…well folks, I found it !, the Ares is ridiculously easy to build and I’m loving the top fill. If you’re a diehard MTL vaper don’t even hesitate getting one of these. By the way, these are the updated models with an improved top seal and an AFC ring that stays put.

    • Hi Martyn,

      Thanks for the support and feedback! And yes indeed, that’s correct. We’ve updated the Ares from the initial design to tackle the initial complaints with the AFC and topfill leakage. We’re always looking to improve our product line and take feedback from our customers into heavy consideration.

  8. How can we tell the difference between the first batch and the revised ones before purchase?

  9. Can this be used with salt nic juice

    • Hi Chris,

      Absolutely! The Ares works wonders with nic salts, if you build a high ohm MTL coil for it. We’ve heard great things about the performance of the Ares and Zenith series tanks with nic salts from our fanbase.

  10. Hi.
    The new color is very cool!
    I have been waiting for 22mm.
    I would appreciate your kind consideration.

    • Hi Sky,

      We hear you! Appreciate the feedback. We’ve released the Zenith in a 22mm form factor to great success. We are always willing to take feedback via our email line at or directly to one of our team members. Thanks for your support and happy vaping!

  11. Hi there!

    Thank you for this great product!
    I‘m searching for spare glass for the 2ml version in Germany. I cannot find a dealer for the 2ml version, only for the 5ml version.

    Do you know, where can i buy this small glass in the clear version?

    Thanks for comment

  12. I just got mine, and I can’t unscrew the build deck at all. I hold on to the glass and top cap and try to unscrew, but nothing happens. Help?

    • Hi Sarah,

      Sorry to hear about the issues you’re having! Try putting the tank in a freezer for about 10 minutes, then run it under hot water, dry it, and try unscrewing again. If this doesn’t help, please contact our support at for more help. Apologies again for the trouble.
