Innokin Ares-2 D22 MTL RTA
The Innokin Ares MTL 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, a newly designed chimney for improved flavour, and of course a classic 2 ml capacity of e-liquid. Featuring a standard 510 pin you can pair the Ares 2 with a range of vape devices.

Design and Build Quality
As you would expect of a company with the notoriety that Innokin has, the tank is built to the highest quality standards with amazing attention to detail that you can see all around the tank. It also comes with an impressive number of spares and tools that ensure you have everything you need to get started.
The RTA tank measures 40mm in height and 22mm in diameter. It has a stainless steel external construction. The tanks are made of pyrex, and the mouthpiece is made of Delrin. The tank dismantles into four main parts:
- The drip tip
- Base, build deck and airflow
- Top cap, chimney and fill port
- The glass tanks
The base, build deck and airflow
The bottom of the MTL RTA tank sits the base, build deck and airflow. It has standard 510 connection threads that turn smoothly, and there is a gold-plated pin. The bottom of the base also has all the vital information laser engraved for easy access and as a constant reminder.
The adjustable airflow ring has two airflow slots. There is a wide one that has five holes available for restrictive direct to lung draw, and there's another hold that delivers an even more tightly MTL draw.
The airflow ring has a stylish engraved pattern with a click system when turned, so it doesn't accidentally move out of place when the tank is in the pocket or purse.
The build deck is equally well-built but simple. It has an easy two-post system so that you can drop your DIY or pre-made coils into position with ease.
Under the coils is an impressive cross-flow airflow system. It consists of a metal dial that can be adjusted to increase or decrease the tightness, pattern and velocity of the airflow.
Two liquid barriers keep the cotton away from the internal airflow and prevent the coil from being flooded.
The Glass Tanks
The Innokin Ares 2 MTL RTA comes with two tanks. One is clear, and the other is a smoked pyrex tank. The tanks are sizeable and will easily carry enough e-liquid to vape throughout the day. At full capacity, the tanks will hold 2ml of vape liquid.
Top cap, Chimney and Fill Port
This is also called the coil cover. It is well threaded and turns smoothly and easily. The inside of the cover is domed to increase flavour and improve in returning any condensed liquid back to the cotton wicks for re-vaporisation.
The outside of the bell has the “ARES 2” emblem printed on one side and on the other side is some design information that gives the tank some much-needed contrast and a better appeal.
The chimney is also attached to a bell. It's not clearly visible, but it extends through to the full port. Above the bell are some O-rings for the glass.
The fill port is relatively easy to work with. It is a simple slide affair. It has an arrow that shows the way you should push it open to fill the tank. You also have to remove the child-locking mouthpiece. After unscrewing the 2 hatch screws, you can remove the slide cap, which allows you to replace the fill port gasket when necessary.
This RTA comes with two mouthpieces. The first one is a 510 child-proof mouthpiece made of Delrin, which comes preinstalled with the tank. There is also a second alternative which is a 510 food-grade standard metal mouthpiece. The construction of both mouthpieces is excellent, and they work like a charm!
