Vaping is the act of taking in and breathing out vapors of an “e-juice” that has been heated up in a vape pen. These days, the act of vaping is not only limited to users who do it for recreational purposes, but it has also become high fashion. Hence, it has been gaining increasing popularity, especially in teenagers and young adults.
With the increase in popularity of e-cigarettes, now manufacturers are striving to make the experience even better for the consumers. Rebuildable atomizers are one way in which manufacturers are trying to give a greater degree of control to the consumer and therefore enhance the pleasure associated with vaping. The biggest allure of a rebuildable atomizer is the prospect of saving money and the level of customization it offers. These devices are easier on your pocket than the traditional vape pens and you can arrange everything to be according to your taste and preference.
Rebuildable Atomizers (RBAs)
Rebuildable Atomizers, or RBAs, are a family that includes Rebuildable Drip Atomizers (RDAs), Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs), and a hybrid of the above two – Rebuildable Drip Tank Atomizers (RDTAs).
Rebuildable Atomizers allow you to rebuild the coils and replace the wick on your atomizers. The atomizer is the component of your vape device that heats up the vape flavor or juice so that it can be inhaled as a vapor. Rebuildable tanks give the consumer a greater degree of control. The flavor is fresher and more intense, the inhales smoother, and the price for a value greater than the ordinary, traditional vape pens.
Rebuildable Drip Atomizers lack a tank to hold your e-juice and require you to drip a few drops of it directly onto the coil after every few puffs. Granted, they can be a little tricky to handle, but the satisfaction of building your own coil is worth it for the fans. They allow you to vape different flavors in one sitting without having to interchange tanks in between flavors. On the other hand, Rebuildable Tank Atomizers offer the great experience of a rebuildable atomizer along with the efficiency and ease of a vape device with a tank. They include an e-juice well (which is smaller than a traditional e-juice tank) that can hold a little e-juice while still affording you the quality and control associated with rebuilding your own tank.
What are RDTAs?
Rebuildable Drip Tank Atomizers are a combination of both RDAs and RTAs in that they allow you to adopt any of the techniques at a time. They can be used as RDAs or RTAs depending on your preference. In this way, they are much more versatile than the above two.
Now that we know what exactly different types of RBAs are, let’s look at different models of the device and the advantages they offer over each other.
Which RDA should I get?
If you are a beginner to building, you may want to consider the Vandy Vape Pulse 22 RDA. Multiple techniques can be used with this device and it is fairly easy to operate.
If you have had some practice and skill with building your own coils and are looking for the ultimate vaping experience, following are some RDAs that you would appreciate.
The Alliance RDA by Vapor gate and Fog Wind
Priced at $44.95, it is 22mm long with three post design and a deep juice well. It has adjustable airflow through three different barrels and includes a two piece PEEK insulator to provide heat resistance like never before.
Hellvape X TVC X Heathen Drop Dead RDA
Drop Dead RDA was made by combining two of the best RDAs available; TVC’s Drop and Heathen’s Dead Rabbit. It incorporates the best features of both of these vape devices to allow the consumer an unparalleled experience in vaping.
Kennedy RDA by Kennedy Enterprises
Costing $99.99, this one is pretty heavy on the pocket. With a good airflow system, nice build, thicker and hence lower resistance wires, a copper center, and a conical top to enhance flavor, I think it is worth the price.
Vgod Elite RDA
VGOD RDA Elite atomizer has stainless steel built, two post build deck, a protruding hybrid 510 connection, and a heat resistant drip tip. It has two large, adjustable air vents at its base to control the airflow. To reach the deck, the consumer only needs to take off the top cap. This easy to use atomizer is definitely one to consider when you are buying.
Royal Hunter by The Council of Vapor
The Royal Hunter includes a decent juice well, adjustable airflow, a split center post, and a wide bore drip tip. Priced at $49.99, this is a pretty decent device.
Which RTA should I get?
For the inexperienced at building, I would recommend the UD Goblin V3 RTA. It is very easy to build and has great value for money.
Those with experience should check out the following when buying an RTA.
Zephyrus by Youde/UD
Costing only $27.95, this is made of stainless steel and glass. It has a 5ml tank capacity, adjustable airflow, PEEK insulators, and a heat sink 510 adapter. It can be used with pre-built coils as well as being rebuildable.
Subtank Mini by Kanger
Also offering to be used as rebuildable as well as with pre-built coils, this $29,95 RTA has a 4.5 ml tank. It is made of stainless steel and glass.
Goliath II RTA by Youde/UD
The Goliath has huge post holes, a tank with a capacity of 4 ml, and a liquid flow control ring. It also offers adjustable airflow that the consumer can set as his preference. It is priced at $32.95 currently.
Silver Play V2 RTA by Project Sub Ohm
Silver Play offers improved adjustable airflow. It bears a conical chimney to give the flavor a boost and has a new filling mechanism. It is priced at a very affordable $39.99 for all the features it offers.
