    Hey pancser!

    Haven't had any leaking from the fill port on either the Ares-1 or 2, but the Ares 2 does have:

    1) An improved top seal
    2) A self closing silicone membrane
    3) The ability to change the top fill port silicon seal should it become damaged.

    Hey Stephen.

    We had some manufacturing issues with the Ares-1. The leaking could have been caused by that so I'm hoping you gave support@innokin.com a shot.

    Resolved on the Ares-2 so please give it a shot! Thanks!

    Hello Luna!

    To be honest, a lot of the Ares-2 was based on feedback we received from the Ares-1. The CAFC, however was a concept we came up with to give the user the ability to change the airflow pattern and velocity under the coil without the need for inserts.

    The CAFC in combination with the main AFC give you the ability to tailor your airflow to your liking.

    Hey BruceS1G!

    Totally different tanks Bruce. The Zlide uses premade Z-Coils and the Ares-2 is a rebuildable.

    So here's the difference between me and some others. Although I would love for you to go out and buy and Ares-2 you said something that is key... "which I really like". So, if you really like something and you're not smoking, why change?

    I can't say it would be an improvement because that would be subjective. It would be different for sure and if you did want to give building a shot, the Ares-2 would be a great place to start!

    Hey Jason.

    Yes, No, Maybe. :)

    I'm wondering is the perception of coils getting worse is actually the introduction of thicker liquids with a ton more sweetener being used in the industry. Salt nic as well.

    Anyway, I would have to say it depends. On the liquid, your build, the sweeteners, the nic, etc, etc.

    The bonus of building is you wind up saving money on coils. You can open it up, pull the cotton out, give it a quick dry-burn to clean off your coil, put some new cotton in and off you go.

    Hello Eye!

    Not sure what you mean by side airflow as the Ares-2 is a side airflow device. Perhaps you're talking about top vs. bottom airflow. All of our devices up to this point have been bottom airflow, but top is something we've been discussing.

    Thanks!

    HA!! Thanks bill!

    Yes! I bet you could! Although how do you get 30 ga to hold a coil?!?! LOL!! :)
    Actually, I don't even want to say I bet you could as I honestly don't know if the capture screws will hold the lead in place strong enough as the wire/lead would be so thin.

    THAT, however, is something we're thinking about for the next version! ;-)

    Hey Andy.

    Perhaps it's the constant pounding of vaping into the ground by our lovely government, agencies, organizations, and main stream media, not to mention the PMTA. It's not what it used to be. I think all the negative publicity has taken the wind out of many people's sails.

    Also, with that negative publicity it's hard to get new people into vaping and new shops opening. If anything the opposite is happening. Shops are closing and vapers are going back to smoking.

    Thanks government and media... you're killing people.

    Hello Ablonz.

    Improved seals top and bottom.
    Replaceable silicon fill port seal.
    Child lock to prevent the cap from opening for a child or in a pocket (can be defeated by using a standard mouthpiece)
    Additional .8mm AFC hole.
    Self closing silicon fill port flap.
    The Cross Airflow Control.
    Closed wick channels.

    Those are the main differences between the 1 and the 2. The differences between the Standard 2 and the LE are cosmetic only plus the addition of a t2 torx tool to get the cap off for silicon fill port replacement.

    Hey Stu! Personally YES!
    Actually just mentioned that in my last review for the Aegis Hero.
    I like a more narrow bore (not so much that it becomes a juice straw). I feel it tightens up the TH.
