    Hi,
    I was wondering if the center post breaking in the V1 has been addressed in version 2.
    I was bumbed out when my V1 post broke. It was my favorite MTL.

    Hey xena! Not sure what you mean by clip through. It's a drop in deck. So leads come out of the coil and just sit in two channels and are held in place with a screw that comes in from the side.
    Best bet is to just take a look at some photos or the intro video I did...

    LOL!! I think I'd look damn good on a Harley. Unfortunately the answer is no, but we may still ride into the sunset! :)

    The Ares-2 would be perfect for you because the tank and the kit are designed with beginners in mind.
    I can probably build it in a couple minutes. I can't say how long it will take you, but let's just say maybe 15 minutes the first time if that?

    Watch the intro video and see how long it takes me and then maybe you can estimate how long it will take you.

    Hey jack.

    First, sorry about your experience with it. It simply shouldn't happen. If you continue to have issues, please contact support@innokin.com.

    I am very happy that you like it once the screw issue was resolved.

    Thanks Seiggy!

    I think we knew we wanted to do different finishes right away. Then we decided to do an LE. Once that decision was made, we needed better mouthpiece designs for it and we had to source the t2 torx tool.

    I would say around 3 months total to put everything together.

    Shout out to Innokin Cathy!! <3

    Hey evan!

    We chose Ares because Dimitris is Greek and...

    Ares (/ˈɛəriːz/; Ancient Greek: Ἄρης, Áres [árɛːs]) is the Greek god of war. He is one of the Twelve Olympians, and the son of Zeus and Hera.

    So there's that story and the other where we were given a list of names that were available and we chose Ares. :)

    Hey Zoe!

    The stated capacities are 4ml for the 24mm and 2ml for the 22mm. The 24mm is closer to 5ml though.

    Ok, so let's take these 1 at a time...

    1) So besides having an experienced user test the Areas 2 LE - has any beginner (first timer) tested and built a coil for the Ares 2 LE?

    YES! We have many people who successfully used the Ares as their first rebuildable.

    2) How easy was it for them? Any beginner Reviews or Videos?

    I've heard people say it was very easy.
    ALL Platform products have tutorial videos available. You can see them on the Innokin website or scan the QR code that comes in the box. I do all the tutorial videos (don't worry, they're short :) )
    For the Ares-2 we have:

    Part 1: Contents

    In this video we introduce the Ares II and go over the kit contents.

    Part 2: Usage

    In this video we go over usage of the Ares II including:

    • Building.
    • Filling.
    • Working with the air flow controllers.

    Part 3: Maintenance
    In this video we go over standard maintenance with the Ares II including:

    • Changing the cotton.
    • Changing o-rings.
    • Changing the glass.
    • Changing the top silicone fill port seal.

    Part 4: Troubleshooting
    In this video we go over troubleshooting potential issues with the Ares II or other similar atomizers including:

    • Leaking.
    • Flooding & gurgling.
    • Dry hits.
    • Short circuits.
    • Resistance fluctuations for temperature control builds.
    You can see all those videos here:

    Ares 2 – A Better Vape Experience

    or here:

    Ares 2 LE – A Better Vape Experience

    3) What oHm works best in the Ares 2 LE?

    Aha! Trick question. The correct answer is... the ohm that work best for YOU! When I build a Kanthal build, I usually come out somewhere around .8ohms. When I build with SS for TC, I'm somewhere around .5 ohms.

    4) What range of coils can be used in the Ares 2 LE?

    Not sure I understand the question. If you're talking resistance range I'd say .6ohms and up for wattage mode.

    5) Are there any prebuilt coils by INNOKIN available, especially 1.0 oHm & above - for the Ares 2 LE?

    The Ares-2 LE like the standard both come with 2 pre-wrapped Kanthal coils that are around 1 Ohm. Innokin does not sell stand alone pre-wrapped coils.

    Hey CAAB! Yes, been a member of ECF since the early days, but don't get to spend much time here anymore.

    Would love to tell you there is a device that I go back to and enjoy but honestly, I use the toppers I'm involved with because they just work for me and I know they give me the vape I'm looking for. So those being the Zenith, Zenith Pro, Zlide, and Ares.

    But let's be honest. If vaping STOPPED with Kayfuns and Provaris, I'd still be a very happy vaper. :)

    The Ares-2 was probably in development for about a year. And as far as hurdles.. yeah.. there was a big one.. COVID-19! The timing of our release was impeccable. It held the release back for months.
