The Altus Tank has arrived.

Welcome to the future.

Since the Altus is no longer in production, check out our other unique RTA vape tanks. Also be sure to check out our new arrivals section for our selection of new vape mods and high-end RDA vape atomizers, where you will find the newest devices the industry has to offer.

The tank atomizer has finally transcended replacement coil heads and now requires nothing more than a 22.5mm x 22.5mm square of cotton.

Using a cutting-edge silicon valley material that was developed over two years, this tank has a CVU chip, or center vaping unit, that has been granted over a dozen patents in the United States and lasts for years.

This is the cutting edge. It is also a durable and reliable product, with a one-year warranty from the manufacturer.

This material was designed for use in vaping, and is an advanced solid state heater. The CVU is safer than any wire, and within operating temperature it will run forever. The CVU is non-metallic and non-toxic, with a purer and cleaner flavor delivery than any wire currently on the market. There is no need to dry burn it, and dry burning it voids the warranty.

In essence, The CVU chip is the coil head.

With far more surface area than a coil, it was engineered to heat up in a perfectly balanced way, unlike regular coils which heat up inside out, and over time, heat less of the perimeter of the coil, and more of the center. This CVU chip lasts for years.

Juice consumption will surprise you. The tank will not drain juice like super-sub ohm tanks such as the TFV4 or Mutank. The Altus tank sips juice economically and efficiently, and still provides great flavor and vapor production.

The surface of the CVU does not oxidize under 1832 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be used with temperature control functionality at up to 200 watts, and 480 Fahrenheit. It will also undoubtedly work on any regulated mod, with or without temperature control, from 25 to 75 watts.

The CVU unit has a resistance reading of approximately 0.5 ohms when it is room temperature. The terminals are gold-plated. As the CVU is heated, the resistance reading will climb up. This occurs during use and is normal. When you set your mod back down, the juice cools down the chip and the reading returns to approximate 0.5 ohms.

An instruction manual with easy to read, clear instructions with images is included. Each order also includes one Altus coil-less atomizer, replacement o-rings and cotton squares. CVU made in the United States.

Tip: To clean the CVU, use a toothbrush and some whitening toothpaste. When you are done, the residue will be gone and it will be good as new!

  • CVU is designed, engineered and made in the United States

    4 out of 5 great tank!

    the ramp up time is alittle slow even on my sx mini q class with powerful+ mode. but the temp control with this tank works awesome with great flavor. I took off a mm of the bottom barrel so that it could wick like the serpent mini. it wicks so nice!?????

    Question

    Hi, seems it works only in sub-ohm. I hate sub-ohm atom, don’t like it. There is any possibility let it work as a “standard” atomizer, like 1.5-1.8ohm so not as sub-ohm?

      The atomizer’s resistance is fixed around 0.5ohms +/1 .1 ohms depending temperature. That specification will not likely change.

      The resistance range stated in the video, I believe, is merely a reference to the increase in resistance when the temperature of the CVU rises. It definitely does increase a lot and very quickly, unlike Kanthal. But IMO this thing should not be run in power mode. It doesn’t produce anywhere near as good in power mode as it does in TC mode. It also appears that everyone’s cold resistance is just a little different. Mine reads .42 cold… I’ve seen .36 to .45… all cold. It’s a sub ohm CVU and there’s no way around that.

    (verified owner)

    but it needs better airflow and not have to wait up to 3 seconds for it to ramp up. It needs to be a top fill tank, in my opinion. The tank gets way to hot that you can hardly touch it, when it needs a refill. The price of this tank needs to come down to be comparable with other tanks, I know this is suppose to be a lifetime of no more coils, no one will buy this at the price it is currently at.

      Ramp up is quite good with a Tungsten TCR in a DNA 200. It actually cuts down on overall heat as well.

      I haven’t noticed any savings on heat production (using proper tungsten tcr). It still gets insanely hot regardless and in order to get a decent ramp up I had to set it at 200w 8punch for 1 second.

    1 out of 5 HUGE FLAWS!

    (verified owner)

    The tank only fills half way, very annoying to re-fill,
    No replacement tank,
    The cotton provided gave me a horrible vape,
    The ramp up time really drains battery fast,
    But, most important, it gives a harsh vape,
    Overall a very poorly designed and overpriced tank with mediocre flavor and a harsh vape. I was really excited to get this, HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT . If I could get a refund, I would.

      I see this as an early-adopter product. It has flaws, but with a tungsten TCR on a DNA 200 I could get it to ramp up in a reasonable time and provide great flavor. The inventor did mention you should cut your nic level because of the way the chip creates the vapor. I agree the stock cotton was horrible in flavor and my regular nic levels are harsh.

    This thing leaks more juice than you are able to vape. Doesn’t matter if it’s sitting up straight or tilted, it leaks the same amount of juice. Wait to buy until they figure this out. Very disappointed that this device would be shipped with how drastic an amount of leakage occurs.

      Just use 2-3mm thicker 25x25mm of better quality cotton. (VapN Bacon, Fiber Freaks, or Japanese Organic Pads) Mine never leak. The included cotton is not the best, and it’s too thin.

      It’s not a show stopper.

      I run 2 ALTUS tanks and they don’t leak for me.

    Cool idea, needs several improvements. First and foremost… TOP FILL!!! Filling this thing is a mess, don’t try it if your out to hand a good time. Second, apparently only world really well with a DNA 200 chip. Pretty sporty investment. No replacement glass, sadly. Needs to hold more juice. It’s 2016, surely any company can do better than this, especially at $120+….. Wanna buy mine!

Fuck David GUO and I hope your company bankrupts and your fake uncle goes back to smoking cigs

    1 out of 5 Dumb. WAY too expensive!

    I’d MUCH rather spend like $25 on a tank and an extra $20 for 2 5packs of coils than $120 on a coil-less atomizer. Those 2 5 packs, with 2-3 that come with tank, and possibly RBA section, would last me a good 6 months until i purchased my next tank… The price is absurd, great idea yes….but stupidly priced!

      I’m beginning to think there are 2 keys to this device besides the engineering shortcomings that I am willing to deal with. A. Run it on a Tungsten TCR in a DNA 200 device. B. Use your own cotton. The cotton that comes with it is horrible. Oh… And C. Cut your nic value in at least half, the CVU is more efficient at nic delivery per the video.

    5 out of 5 Smooth & Easy

    I’ve been using mine for over a month now with an iPV3Li and a Swow Wolf Mini 75TC. Since I purchased it, I haven’t used anything else. Why? Because it offers the best flavor w/the least amount of hassle. I literally just change out the wick every few days, fill up the tank when it’s empty, and change the battery when it needs recharging. And the taste is completely on another level. If you’re into vaping cause you enjoy making all kinds of coils, or actually have time to sit around and mess with that stuff, this is obviously not the atomizer for you. But if you want easy, smooth, top-notch flavor w/o the hassle of twisting up alien, railroad claptons…. buy this now!

    I agree with you. Many reviews here are jumping right in with new stuff and jumping to a conclusion. This IS an early adopter product and could use improvement. That being said, it is interesting to tweak and figure out the sweet spots with wicking and temp control as you mention. It is a very different animal for sure. I’m not disappointed with my purchase in any manner. 🙂

    4 out of 5 Great vape even with a poorly designed tank

    (verified owner)

    Tank needs top fill and it’s messy to rewick. However, I use it daily because it produces amazing flavor and decent clouds at 75w. Only other downside is the fact that you pretty much need a DNA200 chip to set the temp control right (tungsten ) and pre heat to compensate for the ramp up time.

    Cons:
    Cost (lolololol)
    Awful flavor
    Tank filling issues
    Ease of use (or lackthereof)
    Ramp up
    Battery draining
    Awful flavor (twice is too little to stress how funky it tastes)
    Compared to 40 dollar tanks, this is a yawn of epic failure.
    The box made it seem like you aren’t going to waste your money.

    Pros:
    The envelope that housed the o-rings had cool printing.

      Replace the stock cotton. It is awful. Run it on temp control. A DNA 200 with tungsten TCR treats it right. It could still use work or a V2 though.

    4 out of 5 Got it on Final Sale. Worth it

    Was on the fence about buying when they came out. Got it on the final sale at $59 + used coupon code for the 4th sale. Very happy with it. Takes some time to get used to wicking it. I have it on a DNA 200. Running TCR for tungsten at 480 and just keep it on 200. Very little ramp up. Just push the button as you are picking the mod up. By time you get to your mouth you are g2g. I broke the glass on it the 2nd day out but had a cheap china clone tank that the glass actually fit. But Guo customer support emailed me and they have replacements for $5 + shipping. Have 2 on order. Not a big cloud tank but flavor is on par. Other con is bottom fill but the next version is top fill. Overall happy with the purchase and worth the $50. Have wasted $50 on less of a product in my vaping career. Definitely not worth 119…

    Technology, “Out of the BOX” engineering! Sounds great with minimal cost (cotton, or rings etc.) how long under recommended use does the “coiless” chip last? And if it fails how much for a replacement. Hopefully more information will be released soon. Sounds really nice for the “hobbyists advanced vapor”. Following for information. Thanks Origin.

    5 out of 5 The Star Trek Vaporizer !!

    Everybody, just cool it for now, I believe this device will be fine once more details are out for this device. I have watched a couple video’s that do show that one person is not putting in the cotton and o-ring correctly that is mentioned in the designer’s video. While we are all fussing about why is a person reviewing and not asking a question is like a bunch of kids getting all wound up over nothing. If it were I, I would be maybe saving up for this thing while more info comes out. From what I have seen the cotton is just cotton and I think we all know how to cut cotton into squares, if not go back to the 1st grade. I’ll admit, this thing is pricey, but all in all, I think that this young man has put a lot of thought into this unit since his Uncle is the main reason for him trying to improve the safety for not just his Uncle but for all vapors. I don’t vape to quit smoking cigarettes, I vape because my wife had smoked for 40+ years and I finally got her those cancer sticks to improve her life as long as she has left on this planet. I have always thought about those coils heating up and wondering just what are they producing as we inhale the vapor. If this thing is safer than regular coils (I don’t touch, Nickel, Titanium, or Stainless steel coils) because Kanthal is as close as we can get to common metal that we all have come into contact all through our lives, so lets all sit back and wait until people can buy this device and just cross our fingers and hope for the best in all aspects, Please quiet all of the bickering.

    This thing doesn’t look very forgiving on it’s cotton requirement. I don’t want to be trying to cut squares of cotton 22.5mm. An there is no indication of cotton thickness. Are there precut cotton packs for sale or are we on our own?

      I don’t use the thin supplied cotton. It’s not very good. Has an off taste and doesn’t last long. You don’t have to be exact. I use thick strips of Vaping Bacon and soon with be trying Fiber Freaks (What they may be switching to for future orders after testing it at GUO). I use the old square as a template and cut a approx 25x25mm square. I fold the fat wad in half. I cut the excess that squeezes past the edges flush with bottom of the CVU contacts. I jam the whole thing into the slit carefully with some force because it like 4-5mm thick. I saturate it in eliquid because it’s well thirsty, my friend. I’ve getting great performance short term with this wick, but I can’t elaborate that it will last longer that a couple of days as it’s an ongoing experiment. So far though it wicks and taste great. I’ll try the 2 densities of Fiber Freaks cotton cellulose pads later this week when they arrive.

      Your link is to a pad 1.87″ by 2.33″ (that’s 474 mm x 591 mm for you since you apparently have trouble with such math), not 22.5mm x 22.5mm and is much too thick for Altus. And even you should still be asking how think the 22.5mm x 22.5mm is. So question remains unanswered. Maybe you should read it again ‘lil Mikey.

      Is the chip replaceable, or is it most of the investment? What about the other components like glass and o-rings? I posed a similar question to GUO on YouTube.

      This makes sense if we can be well-stocked, but if we spend $120 and suddenly can not get parts (either due to how the mfg makes them available, or due to those evil regulators), we might be stuck holding the bag, or, our finger and our thumb in the shape of an “L” on our forehead.

      * More important question- how does it vape?! I recently tried Freemax ceramic coils in a Starre, and I have to say, if this were my only option, I’d quit vaping and then I’d rather not think about what might come next. New G-Clapton, also pretty bad. So far, I remain a kanthal vapor in regular power mode, not impressed yet by any other.

      I ditched the supplied cotton, it’s gross, doesn’t wick or last long. Try Vaping Bacon or Fiber Freaks. Cut it 25mmX25mm (Personally, I use 4-5mm thick slabs of Vaping Bacon with great success short term, not sure about longterm yet)

    3 out of 5 Not quite there yet, but certainly an interesting concept.

    (verified owner)

    I was excited to get my hands on this device, as it is bleeding edge tech when it comes to vaping. I was however disappointed by the muted flavor the Altus produced, as well as the feeling of moving backward a year or two when it came to assembly. The tank is lacking key features such as air flow control, juice flow control, and a more resilient chip in my opinion. The max recommended power 75W / or / 200W at 480°F is a very cool (cold) vapor. Overall I don’t feel that the performance of the device justifies the price point. That said, I’m interested to see where this technology goes, perhaps V2 or V3 will be more of a home run.

    So far it works as promised although the design could have been more user friendly. A bit messy and tedious to fill but I’m only on my second fill and first cotton. So I’m hoping through use and trial and error it will function beter. The coil less technology is awesome though.

    3 out of 5 Needs Improvement

    (verified owner)

    I’ll start by saying I love where this technology is going… but it’s not quite there yet.

    The tank is bottom fill so you end up with almost half of it empty space when completely filled. It gets extremely hot after a few hits! I wasn’t pushing past 48w in power and 450f in temp mode with about 3 second hits. I’ve used this same configuration with kanthal and nickel and have never gotten an rda or rta this hot before. It’s very messy to refill because of the wick and of course bottom fill. And finally it is written that it “sips juice economically and efficiently”… that is completely false; it drains the tank very quickly in my experience (even with proper tungsten settings on my dna200).

    It’s a very interesting technology and direction for the vaping community and I really want to see this take shape. But at the price point right now, it’s not worth it.

      Top filling is a must these days, especially with the smaller tanks. And capacity is definitely an issue but I’ve used 3ml tanks before with juice sucking coils and this Altus uses quite a bit more, IMO. Maybe I’m imagining it, I dunno but they definitely need a v2 tank. And hopefully they give us this option without having to buy another CVU 🙂 I think it also needs some sort of heat sink. I don’t feel I should have to adjust my vaping style to fit the tank; the tank should be able to adjust to my style.

      I think part of the reason that it seems to kill juice quickly is the capacity issue. You also only get a few mm down into the juice before it comes to the top edge of the cotton. A bell over the wick/cvu like a RTA deck would allow you to completely fill the tank and allow for top filling. Hopefully V2 will have this or an upgrade path.

    This thing does preform as stated and does work with temp control. flavor is great. that being said, the design of the tank is absolutely horrible, refilling and wicking are a mess. in fact I found rewicking to be more of a pain than building a new set of coils for a standard rba. so the technology does work, but the design needs a serious overhaul.

    3 out of 5 Can't wait for the 2nd Revision

    (verified owner)

    Very cool product. It produces great flavour and a decent amount of Vapor. I’m really enjoying this tank, but it does need some improvements in the next revision. The tank tends to leak when it gets low in juice, I’m not sure why, but it never leaks when it’s full. Although it’s easy and quick to fill the tank, it gets pretty messy. Top fill would be a great addition on the next revision. I will definitely buy the next version when it comes out. Keep up the good work Gusto.

    4 out of 5 Day 1.5 good signs

    (verified owner)

    This is an early adopter product without question. It may not be for everyone and maybe most should wait until V2. That being said, I am impressed despite a few small drawbacks. I now have the tank on a DNA 200 device with a Tungsten TCR I found on Reddit. I prefer this device on TC over standard VW. Per the videos Mr. Guo has posted, it does in fact make your nic level seem far more concentrated. I’m on a 3 nic e-juice and it hits like a 6-8. The juice flavor thus far is very different in a good way. It seems to lack the metallic flavors and spit-back like I get from most coil-based tanks. It truly is a different kind of vape. I don’t really see it as a cloud-chaser tank, although it can produce decent clouds at certain settings. If you run a high VG juice in it, go ahead an clip the pre-cut cotton down closer to the barrel of the atomizer. Break it in like a coil with new cotton and it will treat you kindly. This unit DOES feel more like analogue with the juice I’m using as far as hits are concerned and Mr. Guo states that is part of his mission. Airflow feels similar to my Crown tanks, not a RDA but not greatly restricted either. This is different than any of the 12-15 other tanks or RDAs I own at this time. I don’t know if it will replace any of my RDAs, but it could replace some of my current tanks. I look forward to what Guo Vape will do with V2 and their developments moving forward. This looks promising in my opinion.

      It’s a system limitation. Depending on what they use it is pretty common to use “sold out” over “add to cart” as a method of preventing some idiot placing an order for a product that they don’t actually have yet. The fact they HAD the add to cart option enabled a few days ago at a placeholder price of $999 dollars and changed it probably means some idiot actually ordered it for a thousand bucks. Simply making it sold out to disable purchasing is way easier then refunding some idiot the thousand bucks.
