RDAs

For Beginners

The Sapor

Best RDA

Inexpensive, incredibly easy to use and with a whole host of customizable options to help you get the perfect vape, the Sapor is a superb RDA. It really does check all the boxes.

We love this RDA and why do we love it so? Let us count the ways! To begin with, the Sapor is incredibly customizable. You have a choice of three different drip tips, the body is available in a wide range of colors and finishes and you can even adjust the airflow (very easily) to produce the perfect vape. And speaking of the vape, O.M.G, it’s so smooth and wow, once you’ve inhaled, it’s like being smacked in the face by flavor. This really is a knockout RDA! Other reasons why we love the Sapor include its capacity (it holds a lot of e-juice), there’s minimal spit back when you use it and it’s virtually leakproof thanks to its top-fed airflow.

Aeolus Lite

best rda

The Aeolus Lite is the perfect RDA for everyday use. It’s sleek, it continually provides strong, delicious flavors (and some pretty impressive clouds too). It also works really well even in hot builds.

The Aeolus Lite is a nifty RDA which provides vapers with a work-horse-like performance that’s both pleasurable and comfortable to experience.

Tasty vapes, adjustable vertical air inlets, and a truly phenomenal draw make this slick-looking top-fed airflow RDA a true delight to use every hour of every day.

When you’re an every day vaper you want to be assured that your vaporizer will let you vape what you want, when you want, without fuss, muss or compromise. The Aeolus Lite is the very thing to make this a reality.

(The only complaints we had were about its construction – we think it looks a little cheap – and the o-rings can sometimes be a bit of an o-bother – some being too tight, some being a little loose. Not a major problem, though.

The Goon

best rda

The Goon will take any build you throw at it, it’s that awesome! The quality of this RDA also far exceeeds its price. Honestly, it measures up to some of the $100+ atomizers on the market. Versatile, perfect for creative builds with a performance you can’t ever knock, the Goon really is every expert builders dream RDA.

The Goon is the RDA builders have been waiting for thanks to its 24 mm diameter and two-terminal clamp-style build deck. Plus, its plates and terminals are all gold-plated which significantly increases conductivity which as you can imagine makes for truly awesome vapes.

The airflow from the Goon is very versatile and allows for a wide-range of draws.  Due to the size of the chamber, this RDA is better suited for high power and exotic wire builds.

The Goon is easily one of our top picks for build quality, versatility, performance, and price!

 RTAs

For Beginners

The Serpent

best rta

We love the Serpent because it’s so simple to set up, a doddle to use and even the wicking is straightforward thanks to this RTA’s ample wick channels. Any beginner can feel like a pro by using the Serpent. You even get the flavors the pros do.

 

The Serpent may only be a single coil RTA, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a powerhouse. It boasts the largest airflow available in a single coil RTA (thanks to its 4mm wide, cyclops-style air hole) which means stellar flavor performance.

As we mentioned earlier, the Serpent really is such a cinch to use. The coils are so simple to install, and the post holes are large enough for the adventurous beginner to wick a Clapton coil if they felt like doing so. There’s also the option to control how much e-juice gets to saturate the wick.

Overall, an RTA we think is worthy of being bought.

For Expert Enthusiasts

The Moradin

best rta

2015 saw the rise of sub ohm vaping. 2016 it’s the rise of the RTA and like Mom always said, great things come in small packages. Despite its diminutive size, the Moradin is sheer power and is so simple to use. The flavor and vapor production are just superb.

The Moradin’s simplistic (but effective) design mimics a sub ohm tank that delivers (when the large air slots are fully open) immense flavors and large clouds. It achieves this because iCloudCig have managed to integrate an automatic e-juice flow control system and a generous Velocity-style two-post deck into this awesome RTA.

We were impressed by the Moradin’s ceramic deck and chamber (because it prevented shorting) so we were able to get creative and make a variety of different sized builds, even one made from Clapton wire.

All of these features, combined with a powerful box mod work superbly well and always provides you with a potent, airy draw.

Top Tip: Wicks need long tails stuffed into the e-liquid channels to ensure you don’t get any leaks.

FOR THE VAPING VETERAN

The Avocado

best RTA

Simply put, the Avocado is one of only a handful of top coil RTAs on the market. Everything about it is above average and we love its performance.

 

As with anything from Geek Vape, the Avocado performs exceptionally well and is, as equally as important, very affordable (although you will feel like you’ve spent more than you actually did).

Thanks to the build deck sitting on top of the tank (placing the coils much closer to your mouth) and a ceramic chamber reducer and rear-side airflow, the Avocado really does kick out some top notch flavors (which rival the Haze Dripper and the NarDA).

It also has wonderful airflow controls, a large build deck with large post holes, there’s an option to use dual coils (although it’s hard to refill with them in) and is much less prone to leaking than other RTAs.

The reason why this machine is suggested for the vaping veteran is because it can be a tiny bit fiddly to get to used to.

Okay, yes, the Velocity-style deck makes mounting coils a breeze but wicking it, like it did for us, may require you to use some different techniques. Why? Because the tank is underneath the deck and it may take some patience to find the right wick tail thickness to insert the wicks into the 4.5mm holes.

However, once you’ve figured the wicking out (which won’t take long), and you’ve got yourself a hold of some slotted screws (because the grub screws are of an odd size and Allen keys won’t fit them properly) and it’s all ready to go, the Avocado can be used between 90-150 Watts and it keeps up just fine.

It’s one of our favorite pieces of vape gear to date. By far.
