Flavor atomizers are the ones that eschew big airflow in favor of a condensed chamber and a richer, cooler, more flavorful experience from your juices.
They tend to have higher resistance coils, and you tend to get better mileage from your juice as the lower power doesn’t draw in as much juice.
Some of the best flavor atomizers I have found are the ones you can take long and slow draws on, fully experiencing all the flavor notes in your juices.
That being said, not all of the best flavor atomizers have higher resistance coils, some of the high power sub ohm tanks also offer outstanding flavor.
With all re-buildables, be sure to remember these key points:
- Be sure your vape device can handle the added battery power re-buildable tanks may need to perform. Check out our recommended box mods for sub ohm compatible vaping devices.
- Not all devices are compatible with the most popular 0.5ohm coil.
- Many devices aren’t compatible with tanks that use 0.2ohm coils!
- These tanks/RDA’s are not for use with standard vape pens / EGO batteries.
- Just because you can buy one of these doesn’t mean you need one.
- Vaping RBA’s is generally geared towards direct lung inhale vapers.
- They also chug out huge vapor so if you’re thinking on using one of these when sat having a romantic meal in Nando’s with the other half think again. These aren’t made for stealth vaping!
- Some RDA/RTA’s can go drink e juice like there’s no tomorrow.
With that out the way, for a great flavor chasing atomizer you need a condensed chamber, a flavor build such as a Clapton coil, and slightly reduced airflow over a cloud chasing atomizer.
Let’s have a look at what I believe to be the top 10 flavor chasing RDAs and tanks, in no particular order-
Wotofo Freakshow Mini
The Wotofo Freakshow Mini definitely isn’t one of the most expensive atomizers on my list, but coming up to a year since its release it is still one of my favorite flavor RDAs of all time and an atomizer I use every day, as the flavor is truly superb.
I believe to get the best from this you need it set up with a single coil build, as this gets the best flavor results for me!
- Three post build deck
- Outstanding flavor
- Cheap price
- Single or dual coil
- Decent bottom airflow
Aeolus Lite RDA
The Aeolus Lite is the new condensed version of the Aeolus RDA, taking the best bits of the Aeolus V1 and V2 Pro and making for an absolutely awesome flavor RDA.
The great thing about the Aeolus Lite RDA is even though the Aeolus Lite is geared towards dual coil builds only, the top airflow gives outstanding flavor whether at high or low power and it’s truly one of the best flavor atomizers around.
- Top airflow for excellent flavor
- Leak free design
- Great price
- Performs superbly at high or low power
- Great adjustable airflow system
There’s probably no other tank out there as versatile as the SMOK TFV4, with a huge range of different coil heads available for it, including coil heads geared towards the best flavor performance around!
The SMOK TFV4 is well known for its cloud producing capabilities but what a lot of people don’t realize is that there are some outstanding flavor coils for this tank, such as the excellent Clapton Core heads.
- Huge range of different coil heads
- Clapton core heads offer amazing flavor
- Four different rebuildable coil heads
- Excellent flavor even at high power
- Top refilling
The Aspire Cleito is a tank I use day to day, especially when I want to test out an e liquid for flavor.
It looks simple but this tank has been one of the surprises of 2016 so far. If you have read our guide on the best RDA’s, RTA’s and tanks for clouds you will also see the Cleito included.
Simple reason being it does both very well indeed.
The kit comes complete with a 0.4ohm and 0.2ohm Clapton coil head which helps deliver huge clouds and superb flavor. One thing to keep in mind is that the Cleito is best used with vape mods that can output 40W+.
- Arguably some of the best flavor from a clearomizer to date
- 0.4ohm and 0.2ohm Clapton coils
- 3.5ml capacity
- Can handle up to 70w
- RBA deck shortly available
Youde Goblin Mini V2
Following on from the original Youde Goblin Mini that produced impressive flavor and clouds, the ‘Version 2’ does pretty much the same thing but only better.
The design has been tweaked with the original flaws being ironed out making this an RTA to be matched for flavor.
- Unique pendulum airflow
- Four post build deck
- Huge juice channels for wicking any VG ratio
- Outstanding flavor at high or low power
- Can handle dual or single coils
Ehpro Billow V2 Nano
The original Billow V2 was a superb flavor tank and the Billow V2 Nano packs the same superb features into a smaller RTA, that I believe offers even better flavor than the original did.
The flavor is on par with a dripper, the shortened height and condensed chimney offering excellent flavor, and it’s available at a very wallet friendly price too!
- Shortened height for superb flavor
- Large four post build deck
- Easy bottom fill method
- Outstanding RDA level flavor
- Big airflow if you like clouds
Wotofo seem to really know their stuff when it comes to budget RDAs and the Sapor is another superb flavor machine from these guys available at an excellent price.
The flavor from the Sapor is truly something else, it’s an RDA that features top airflow and a leak proof design, and it’s also available in loads of different colors too!
- Top airflow
- Leak proof design
- Easy build
- Different color schemes
- Very cheap price
13 Heavens 9 Hells RDA By Compvape
The 13 Heavens 9 Hells RDA from Compvape is the sequel to the best selling Twisted Messes RDA, and it’s an RDA that offers top performance on both the cloud and flavor front.
It’s got a huge four post deck with a deep drip well and offers incredibly intense flavor no matter the build.
Add to the fact that it looks like it means business, with interchangeable sleeves, and the 13 Heavens 9 Hells offers some of the very best flavor you will ever come across!
- post build deck with some of the biggest post holes you will ever see
- Real top quality flavor, one of the best in the business
- Appeals to cloud and flavor chasers
- Interchangeable sleeves
- 3 different drip tip options to suit your vaping style
Innokin iSub S Sub Ohm Tank
The Innokin ISub Apex is an outstanding flavor tank and the ISub S, the latest version from Innokin, is possibly the best one yet on flavor.
It offers easy use and a wealth of different coil options, including Ni200 coils for temperature control vapers, and the PRISM airflow system present with this tank makes for some of the best flavor found from a clearomizer
- Outstanding flavor for a clearomizer
- No spill coil swap system
- PRISM airflow system
- Top filling
- Clapton and Ni200 coils available
Wismec Indestructible RDA
Wismec have been knocking out some real high quality kit recently and the Indestructible is an outstanding flavor RDA.
There’s a vortex airflow system in place that combines with the adjustable top airflow to provide some amazing flavor results and a single coil specific airflow slot aimed at those single coil flavor chasers.
It’s a superbly machined bit of kit, with a premium look at a budget price!
- Vortex airflow for supreme flavor
- Adjustable top airflow
- Single coil specific airflow slot
- Excellent design
- Different top cap designs
